  • Bug Writing Best Practices: Research: - What was the issue you ran into? - What part of the game were you in? - Are you able to reproduce the issue? If so, what is the occurrence? 3/5, 5/5? - How widespread is the issue? Does it occur with multiple units, areas of the UI? Does it happen for the host or client? - Can you narrow down the steps to reproduce? - What steps have you taken to try and correct the issue? Writing: - Try to be as clear and concise as you can.  - Reference any relevant units, abilities, UI elements, AI behavior, etc Terminology to help describe areas of the game: UI (User interface) Main Menu Waiting for Players Screen (Host only) Loading Screen Strategy Picker (where you develop and choose your units) - Development Menu - Unit Selection Menu, Hero/Escort tab - Strategy Picker map Conflict Phase (where the conflicts are listed) Action Phase/Gameplay (where you control your hero in combat) Results Screen (shows which control points were taken) Domination/Termination Screen (End game screen to show victory/defeat) HUD (can be seen in both the Strategy Picker and in gameplay. Top bar, Hero Icon and Minimap included) Hero: This is the unit you control. Escort: This is the AI that you choose alongside your Hero in the Strategy Picker. You can pick them out on the battlefield as the AI that is following you around. Army: This is your AI teammate's units.  Control Point  Volcano Arena Expansion (enemy or your own) - additional arenas Bugs Types: Crash - The game stops responding and closes unexpectedly Gameplay - Consider this when you are in control of your Hero Collision - Areas that you're able to get out of bounds or is difficult to path through or get stuck on AI - AI behaving in an unexpected or weird ways Camera  Text - grammar, misspellings, placeholder text, etc Network - Disconnections, out-of-sync behavior between players or AI.
