Work on Camelot Unchained progressed a little slower than usual last week as a couple of the team leveled up their families by welcoming two new baby boys to the world. So a big congrats to the team as their level 1 newbs start their long journey to level cap.
Despite the slower pace due to team illness and new babies, Camelot Unchained still managed to make many of its roadmap goals for last week by only missing two of its target goals. The first pass of controlled models in C# server is running late and the first pass at environmental concept art missed its intended date. All the same, the team did manage to complete a number of others listed below from the update.

- We had to delay this task to work on other things this past sprint.
