Few words about myself: 34 yo, came from Ukraine to California around 5 years ago. Working in IT in some well known company. All my life I play online games focusing on very competitive level and won multiple tournaments. Games such as Ultima Online, Dota 2, World of Warcraft, Legends of Aria and many more… Some ppl know me based on this achievement: WoW Classic tournament with $50,000 prize: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uttoWtPILjQ
I gathered all the experience from multiple games and 2 years ago decided to make my own game with the best features and game style ever. Of course, since I’m the solo dev, you should not expect AAA game but you definitely can count on a true game with it’s own spirit! See you guys in game!
