MU Legend Open Beta Postponed to November
Scheduled to start during the summer, MU Legend's global Open Beta was postponed by Webzen to September. Back then, Webzen mentioned that the dev team needs a bit more time to polish the game, in order to add more features than it was previously thought. Today, on game's official Facebook page, it's written "MU Legend Open Beta moved to November". Pierre Vanderbroucke, MU Legend's producer from Webzen Dublin explains why the game's OBT was once again postponed.
With the MU Legend global version, we are in the fortunate situation that our Korean version of the game is already live. This means we have had enough time to take into account essential feedback from players of the Korean version.
Thus, our careful analysis brought us to the logical conclusion that we would need to re-arrange a few features and balances, and adjust our release roadmap.
When one user suggested: Why not open the gates of the CBT2 version and patch the content gradually?, the Webzen representative replied:
We could, but… along with the extra content, these required changes (derived from the feedback of the Korean users and the developers themselves) also impact mechanics balancing, and we do not want to simply postpone the fixing of current known issues that we are able to fix for the OBT version of the game.
I wonder if the fans hype will continue to grow in these three extra months, or Webzen's decision will prove to be a bad one.
