Gym Challenge Heats up! VS Blaine enters the battle!
Late last week I got some great ideas for how I would do the Blaine battle for the Gym Challenge. I've been watching a lot of World of Warcraft on Twitch (while I work), especially guilds trying to beat Mythic Blackrock Foundry (the latest raid dungeon in World of Warcraft). So I think this battle is very influenced by different MMO bosses that I've seen lately. I hope you guys will enjoy! I'll try to make it pretty challenging without making it feel unfair. That is the ultimate goal for game development. I've also added a new poll so that you can vote on what reward you will want for the gym.
Blaine - Cinnabar Gym Leader

Auction House Progress
The Auction House is still in progress, it is slow and steady but things are coming together, I didn't think it would be fair for you guys that I spent another whole week just on it so I'm also doing the gym challenge for PTD2. I'm very excited for the auction house, it won't be super pretty at first but it will be functional.
Work in progress

Let's Get it Done: Champions TD Auction House v1!
It's that time of the month again when things take longer to make that usual and so we need to have a laser focus to finish them. In using the fabulous Flox Game Service and it really is great! It is however a big departure from what I was doing in PTD and so to create this Auction House I have to come up with new ways of doing things. I do love solving these problems, they are like puzzles for me but they do require much time be spent on them to solve properly. I'm also trying to prevent certain exploits to work in the game so more time is needed.

In the end it will be worth it as you will be able to have this great service that will help keep us making great games for all of you.

Blog Poll! You decide which Mega Stone! (Poll Above Blog)
For the next Gym Challenge there are many possible mega stones that can be given away. So I'm leaving it up to you to decide which one will be given out! Vote wisely!

vs Sabrina
As promised this week we will have a new Gym Challenge Fight for PTD2 and it will be versus Sabrina the Saffron City Gym Leader. She specializes in Psychic Pokemon so we can expect some sneaky stuff happening on her end since they have much power. The way I'm planning it right now you will have one pokemon only but you will be able to move around as there will be many spots. How will you fare against her Alakazam?

Auction House Begins
Also this week I want to start building the Auction House of Champions TD as I feel we are getting to the point were we have enough items for it, it will work a lot like the PokeCenter except instead of trading one thing for another you will trade item for in game gold/silver/copper. Players will also be able to bid or buy out items so think of it like an ebay for Champions. Along with these eventually you will be able to message other players and even trade with other players. Please look forward to it!
