Devlog: Testbed Event Shenanigans - Pirates of the Burning Sea -

The latest devlog out of Flying Lab Software looks at their efforts to put the play back in playtesting with entertaining events on their test server.


As many of you know, we hold testbed events every time we release a new major build.

If you’re interested in getting an early peek at new features and having some fun, check out the Testbed forum for details on how to join in.

We’ve held two events in the past month: the Croc Swamp, where players battled against a horde of angry crocodiles, and Gull Point, which pitted teams against each other in our brand new Skirmish system.
