Steam Store Page Submitted For Review, Target Release Dates
Steam Review Process

Steam is going to take at least 2-3 business days to review the MOBA GM store page. Once it gets approved the game has to wait at least two weeks before it can be released.

I also have the current Windows and Linux versions uploaded to Steam. Once I upload the Mac version I will have essentially all of the prep to release it on Steam done.

I will probably wait for a little more polished version before I have Steam review the actual game. That review process will then take 3-5 days. I can't release it before that happens as well.

I'll also probably be adjusting the screenshots and trailer before it gets released as well so it has all the latest features.

Target Release Dates

Normally I might just give the Steam release date as 2 weeks after Steam gives the MOBA GM store the OK. However, I just happen to be out of town later that week. If something were to come up I might not be able to fix everything in a timely manner. So I think I need to do the Steam release date after I get back.

I also don't think there is a need to have too big a gap between the Steam release and the web beta. I'm thinking any issues will be rather quick fixes. So here are my current target dates (which are subject to change based Steam approval times, difficulty of fixing bugs, and my impression of needed polish):

Web Beta: Sunday, April 15, 2018

Steam and Web Release: Wednesday, May 2, 2018

Difference between Steam, Web, and Web Beta

The main difference between the beta release and normal release is neither Steam nor I will be telling anyone about the game. Only people who are following the game will know about it. I'm assuming anyone who is following the game will know that the beta version won't be as tested or polished as the final version. So if you want to wait feel free to. If you want to help test the game, or just don't care, then feel free to get it right away.

My current plan is for anyone who gets the web version to also get the Steam version. If you got the web version during the beta then the Steam Key will be sent to you when the game is available on Steam.

If you get the web version after it has been released on Steam the Steam Key for the game should be sent within 24 hours (initially that part will be done manually by me). If you get the Steam version, and send me some type of proof, I'll give you access to the web version as well.

So that is the plan. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

@DoubleD The new factors are based on real win rates. Also, I'm using win rates instead of ranked champion power. So before the top champ was 1 and the next might be 2, etc. Now it is .54, 53.5, etc.

@Zen

"Now that i have clear win rates for all of these I'm also hoping to better line the game up with that information."

Maybe I'm just reading things wrong because the whole paragraph that that is from is a bit confusing for me, but do you mean you are getting like real data from outside the game or are you just referencing that you have new factors that you are putting in now?

Please, take your time with this game! I totally want to play a optimized game and I have grown tired of all the other games that become so unoptimized just because publishers care about shoving micro transactions down the gamers throats and they turn out to ruin the quality of the games and how ruins how it runs on how an average gamer once used to be able to run the game very well. As I said again, please take your time! I see it looks like a very fun game to play and It will be worth the wait from what I see!
