Dear players,

We've been working on improving existing systems since version 2.5, Subscription, Quest Tracking, Tutorial, Electrum Shop, etc, and new content as well.

First-run Cross-server PvP Wrap-up
First fight of the brand new Cross-server PvP came to an end on Sunday, we're glad to see players enjoying the fierce competition. The defeated Nexans have started pouncing back to retake lost ground, and there are new challengers as well. The higher the rank, the closer the epic Steam Griffon becomes. Can't wait to see the next round fired up.

Time to stand firm!

Tower of Peril really lives up to its name, waves of mobs with sick Power maliciously lurk on each layer of the Tower. All players have a chance to assemble an awesome the Steam Scorpion if they can survive as many Layers as possible or strike it rich with opening up some Chest (it's rare of course!).

What 2.6.1 Brings In?

In 2.6.1, we will overhaul the Crafting system; all functions inside it will be reworked and the new interface will be more friendly and easy to understand. Catalyst will be completely unnecessary in the new Crafting system but we are not simply removing it -all Catalysts will turn into something valuable instead. As the development and testing are not completed yet, the preview screenshots are pretty rough (but still can see the difference):

In addition, 2.6.1 will introduce a new in-game currency called Bound Electrum which replaces the old Spiremarks, which still can be viewed on the Shop interface. It looks like Electrum and can be used in exactly the same way (purchasing items from the Electrum Shop, etc), but it’s Purple and bound to your character. Anything purchased with bound electrum is, you guessed it, bound. People with remaining catalysts after the upgrade will exchange them for Bound Electrum, which is a good trade.

Always remember to keep an eye on our official website for news, updates and events. Have fun!

Our level designer, Greg (from the video), actually helped design a lot of the tools to make the levels, and makes it look easy in the video. In order to have a working too for the community to use, it would take a lot of time and effort. Many have expressed interest in this though, so it's certainly something we'd like to consider eventually...just sadly not in the cards for the near future.

Yea I did get a look at that video and covered engine level design elements myself. I just find the concept of community develop a interesting way to create further community interaction. There are defiantly whole different tiers of user experience and determination making it easier for the community to use isn't entirely necessary if people are interested enough they'l adapt:P With the ones coming out being more dedicated designers which would allow easyer review and balancing/action to bring it into the game.

I would say most of the works were done entirely by 1 individual but the concept behind it usually came from Dave. There are others that you've only seen the model because the 3D guys came up with it. Charben is our lead concept artist and Wayne is lead 3D artist. Some were fixed up and altered etc throughout the process, so it's regally hard to pinpoint an "author".

You guys need an icon for not only this page, but for your website. I'd suggest that furnace that you have the game-title over. It's pretty iconic for this. =p
