Interview with Clovis
This week, Sascha interviewed Clovis, giving players a behind the scene look at the future of atWar.
Question #1: Are there going to be strategy changes in the future? If so, when?
Clovis: Not very likely. I don't think that Amok will do it. Ivan would probably do it again if he sees a lot of support, which is also my stance.
Question #2: Are there plans to bring on another admin to the team? Currently, there are 3 "coders", and no marketing admin. Are they possibly looking for someone to fill that gap?
Clovis: Not at the current time, that person would have to excel and come on his own to the game.
Question #3: Will we be able to start 2v2 Clan Wars without having a third leave, and will you kindly allow rejoining in clan wars anytime soon?
Clovis: No ( sorry acq )
Question #4: Right now you are just an admin with programming responsibilities but will we see you taking a more leadership approach in the future with general issues like Sun Tsu did?
Clovis: I've been feeling the responsibility to do so, but personally I don't like it. I believe there are better people suited for the role.
Question #5: Will the radio ever make a comeback; is it actually on the to-do list after the more pressing issues right now?
Question #6: Casual games are plentiful but lack a good mechanics to start them. Are there any plans to improve casual game setup (maybe add a turn 0)?
Question #7: Scenerio clan wars?
Question #8: Is the reason that you denied the addition of many of these features because finishing the map editor takes top priority?
Clovis: Yes, for all of them.
Question #9: How far would you say is the current state of the scenario editor? Is there a date where we can expect it to be released?
Clovis: It's really 99% done. To be fair, most of the code was already made in SL. We're just adapting it to HTML with some minor changes. That translation (from SL to HTML) I'd say it's 80% done. We should see it coming next week.
Question #10: Approximately how much time do you spend on programming for atWar?
Clovis: Around 10 hours a week.
Question #11: Since it's not 100% clear if you are getting paid for your work, are you getting a part of the earnings they make with atWar?
Clovis: Yes. I actually volunteer to it but they offered to pay me, so I accepted. Like Amok said before, it's a bunch of peanuts but for someone from my country, that's actually some decent money
There you have it, Clovis is making bank. Just kidding guys, hope you enjoyed reading the interview with Clovis.
