    As far as I'm aware: Sort of. He said he'll stay until the BETA is released, and then leave not to return for quite some time.

    Well, currently progress is halted. We'd like to finish the Orcs before anything else, though. And for that, all that is needed is a little bit of testing around with the Catapult, as well as some new SFX models.
    But, unfortunately, we are all busy with all sorts of stuff. So... There's no ETA. Hopefully soon.

    Of what?
    There's not really much to show. :(
    I could upload some screenshots of actual gameplay, sure, but it's nothing that you've never seen before. It's all of the models in our gallery, plus the terrain from the previous Developer's Blog.

    Is it likely that you would release a Beta version of this only with Orcs as the available race? I mean, I think its a great start to let people see the orc vs. orc demo, also mirror matches are very often, so if there are rebalancing and bugs needed to be solve, I think the beta should do the trick.

    Yes; That is what we're currently striving for. I can't give you an ETA because we're all busy with all sorts of stuff. All that needs to be done, though, is a bit of re-thinking for the Catapult(it's nearly useless, seeing how we already have Ogre Maulers, Juggernaughts, Goblin Sappers and, to a smaller extent, Goblin Aces to be effective against buildings).
    Also, I've got to finish some SFX, and I'm being slightly lazy about it. I'm working on two other models at the moment as well, so at any rate, I'm not going to finish it all up this week.
    I would gladly try and get a video of the actual gameplay in SoC if you guys want it. Maybe even a replay. With screenshots and stuff. Would that be good? It'll be hard to find players who are both willing to play and are good players, though. I'd love to get Wazzz and Linaze to play. We'll see how it all goes.

    I had a similar problem with the Catapult and Ballista. I ended up scrapping them for Tier 2 amphibious siege units with a secondary passive abilities. Just a thought.

    That would be very cool indeed, seeing first ingame player vs. player battle goes.

    Me, Kam and NFWar had an awesome, 2-hour long game yesterday. My best game as of yet, I think. The replay is literally two hour long, though, so I'm not sure if anyone would like to watch it. And you need the map anyways, soo...

    I guess me and Kam could upload the screenshots. Maybe make a video with the best, most intense parts of the replay? Does that sound good? Might just ask Vengeancekael, he's good with this kind of shit.

    Kam, really good job on taking screenies, pretty awesome indeed.

    A replay with intense scenes are gonna be awesome! Just keep the video length maybe 3-5 minutes. :ogre_haosis:

    I've asked VKael to make that video we were talking about. It should be here in a week or a bit less(or a bit more). Also, here's some more screenshots:

    Most likely not. We had a lot of people asking us this kind of question in the old SoC thread; The short answer is, no.

    The long answer is: Scars of Conflict is not a WarCraft II recreation\clone. It's based in the same lore and timeline as WC2, but the gameplay is different and most units are different. Even if some unit is 'coming back' from WC2, he won't be a clone of it, and, in fact, will be a different unit in at least one way. For instance: Grunts have the Battle Roar ability and War Turtles cannot submerge. Instad, War Turtles can walk on land, and have the "Disabling Shot" attack, which lowers the attack damage and armor of an enemy mechanical unit. The Alliance navy will probably consist of the Human Transport, Elven Frigate, Dwarven Engineering Ship and Human Flagship. That's what I had in mind, either way; Everything is subject to change, and it's not really guranteed that we ARE going to make the Alliance.
