Thanks to everyone who has already joined! Keep spreading the word!
- Why did you choose the name of "Warlight" for the new domain?
Warlight is a better name than Warzone. :)
- Whether all the technical difficulties for the nearest future have been resolved?
The first time it went down it was fixed by rebooting the VM and restarting the ladder. The second time it went down it was because the VM that was hosting the ladder was on a type of cloud infrastructure that was retired by Azure. Now the ladder has been migrated to a new VM that is being hosted on an entirely different architecture. I make no promises that there won't be some hiccups, but any downtime that happens going forward should be of much shorter duration and avoid the loss of data.
- Are there any changes to the team behind the MTL?
Yes, you are right there have been some changes to the team running the ladder. The creator (and the person who deserves most of the credit for its existence) is no longer involved in maintaining it. JustinR17 was incredibly helpful to me in getting it back online (much thanks to him!), and will be involved going forward. Thanks for the reminder that I should update the information on the site about attribution).
- Are there any plans or ideas for further development/improvement of MTL?
Initially we are going to be focusing on stability, but once we're confident that things are stable we hope to be able to build enhancements.
