Greetings, Dragon Lords!
Welcome to the next installment of the War Dragons AMA! This AMA will be focused on the Design Team here at War Dragons and their work with the many Dragons, Riders, Abilities, and Towers that exist in the game.
@PGLawson will be joining us today. Feel free to tag them in your questions!
A few things to note for this Atlas AMA:
- You are welcome to ask Lawson anything you may like. Please note that questions that are not specific to design (power balance, abilities, Dragon spell kits, etc.) may be outside of their wheelhouse, and they may not have an exact answer.
- This is an AMA, but we will continue moderating this thread based on the Forums’ Code of Conduct. No inappropriate questions, please.
- Non War Dragons questions are also encouraged! Previous work experience, other questions about game development, or even “what’s your favourite colour?” are welcome.
About @PGLawson: I joined War Dragons a year and a half ago as a game designer (during the Fall 2017 Season). This amazing opportunity has been my first job out of Grad School, where I studied Technical Design (half programming, half game design). As a game designer, I’m largely responsible for all of the awesome dragons that make their way into the game. We just finished up launching the first wave of Springblossom (Ronin is my favorite!) and we’ve actually just started brainstorming for Summer. Outside of dragon design, I’ve worked on revamping the game’s loading screen tips, a large swath of QOL improvements, and I’ve dropped by on stream a good number of times.
We’re here until 5pm PT, so we’ve got two hours to answer your burning questions. Ask away!
