This would be nice. I realise it's currently a one CGR and his dog operation but a road map would be appreciated.

Hi,
The focus right now is on the experience for new players, hopefully with a view to properly "announcing" the game in countries that localization now exists for.
Work is progressing on a new AI, which should be smarter and more varied, and exhibit "personality" traits.
The tutorials will be getting some attention.
There's no release date yet, however. Especially the AI work is taking a long time (but is progressing well: the new AI can now hold its own vs the old one).

An A.I. that accounts for dispel would make realms far more fearsome. They already seem to account for some activations.

I take it the AI will be able to cast every spell?

Cause at the moment AI never casts Crystal Wall, Crystal Maze. dispel etc

Yes, the plan is for the AI to cast every spell.

Are custom games still being worked on as well, or are they being left 'as is'?

It would be really nice, at the very least, to have them available for asnych matches.
