Let's Get it Done: Champions TD Auction House v1!
It's that time of the month again when things take longer to make that usual and so we need to have a laser focus to finish them. In using the fabulous Flox Game Service and it really is great! It is however a big departure from what I was doing in PTD and so to create this Auction House I have to come up with new ways of doing things. I do love solving these problems, they are like puzzles for me but they do require much time be spent on them to solve properly. I'm also trying to prevent certain exploits to work in the game so more time is needed.

In the end it will be worth it as you will be able to have this great service that will help keep us making great games for all of you.

Blog Poll! You decide which Mega Stone! (Poll Above Blog)
For the next Gym Challenge there are many possible mega stones that can be given away. So I'm leaving it up to you to decide which one will be given out! Vote wisely!

vs Sabrina
As promised this week we will have a new Gym Challenge Fight for PTD2 and it will be versus Sabrina the Saffron City Gym Leader. She specializes in Psychic Pokemon so we can expect some sneaky stuff happening on her end since they have much power. The way I'm planning it right now you will have one pokemon only but you will be able to move around as there will be many spots. How will you fare against her Alakazam?

Auction House Begins
Also this week I want to start building the Auction House of Champions TD as I feel we are getting to the point were we have enough items for it, it will work a lot like the PokeCenter except instead of trading one thing for another you will trade item for in game gold/silver/copper. Players will also be able to bid or buy out items so think of it like an ebay for Champions. Along with these eventually you will be able to message other players and even trade with other players. Please look forward to it!

Blog Poll! You decide!
A new decision has appeared for you guys and gals to decide! It has to do with your units moves. Unlike PTD your units in Champions TD (so far) can use all attacks, active and passive, all the time. The game can be more like PTD where you have to choose which of the moves you want activated and which ability you have activated. So in Champions that would mean only have one "active" skill and one "passive" skill activated at one time. I would redesign the moves to make each individual move more powerful for it to make more sense since currently they are design to all be on at the same time. So let your voice be heard and tell me what you think.

Let's get it done! Cave Boss Level
Last week Unova took a lot out of me, I worked long hours to get the Unova Invasion done and so I wasn't able to complete the cave boss level for champions. This week has also been pretty hectic with helping a friend move so I won't have a lot of time to tackle a lot of things this week. For these reasons this week I will focus my energy on finish this boss level for all of you! I got a good chunk done last week but I still have a decent amount left. Next week we will get a ptd2 challenge level plus other goodies. Let's get it done! Are you with me?
