Looking at the dev tracker, I still see devs talking about adding foundry maps and assets.

Didn't they announce that resources were moved from foundry to PVP? Why is there still foundry development and yet no PVP development?


EDIT: In case folks have forgotten, this is referencing Geko's announcement during Priority One ep. 158 back in January.

most new additions, thats are not a new pve mission, are in a way pvp content. next lockbox, super boosted crafting stuff is taking up system time, and will, intentional or not, have a big pvp impact. featured EP 9.5 is taking up the time of map and content guys, preventing them from hooking up more pvp maps, as usual. as soon as season 9.5 launches they will again have some huge pve project they have to start, preventing the hook up of new pvp maps. just like the last 6 seasons or so.

it must be significantly more easy to put things in the foundry then the pvp map rotation, and the only one that knows how to do it probably coded it in sanskrit and quit years ago

I would simply guess there are far more foundry-user than pvpers.

As for pvp-impacts, see drunken. Though its more or less collateral damage on that side^^

First of all, there might be ongoing PvP developement (as unbelievable as this may sound) taking place.
Secondly, converting existing assets into Foundry assets won't take as long (and really doesn't take a lot of time. that's what tacofangs once said) as creating more features for the foundry editor itself. So there basically is no foundry developement going on right now, just some asset conversions, which don't impact any foundry functions at all and cost nearly no ressources on cryptics part, since the art designer can do the conversion, not some systems guy or a programmer.
As frustrating as the current status of pvp may be, the foundry is in no way to blame in this (seemingly) current scheme to impede any pvp function this game has or will have in the future. (At least that's the sentiment i can read between each line in the pvp subsection)

Foundry editor for PvP is a cool idea. But open PvP with territory control would be even better! Sadly, I don't think Cryptic can deliver anything cutting edge here.

Because many use the foundry and we have been getting into talks with the devs, so communication is going across.

I'm a PvP'r and a Foundry author...

...and I find this thread ridiculous.

Also, Taco adds assets to the foundry. Last I checked, he does not and cannot work on PvP.

Adding costumes, ships, and small bundles of assets is not "development" it is devs being generous with what little spare time they have.

We were told by Geko that we would have been getting actual development, which I define as scheduled developer team time adding new features, with the new features in around season 9. This has not actually happened.
