I was a contracted Quality Assurance Analyst for the project from April 2017 to August 2017.

What I Did

  • Tested all primary aspects of the game in accordance with test strategies and daily needs via white box testing techniques including ad-hoc, exploratory, and regression testing
  • Smoke tested new builds to verify integrity for build delivery
  • Wrote, filed, and tracked bug reports using bug database software
  • Took ownership of bugs by working closely with developers to resolve and close them
  • Investigated bugs that lacked sufficient information and dealt with them appropriately
  • Tested all critical path missions daily to quickly identify and resolve blockers and other issues present in new builds
  • Thoroughly tested the Shadow Wars, the game's fourth act, which consisted of looking for and resolving potential issues with:
    • All possible Siege Upgrade combinations in Fort Defenses and Fort Assaults
    • Failing Fort Defenses and Fort Assaults under various differing conditions
    • Possible Warchief and Overlord combinations in Fort Defenses
    • Possible Assault Leader combinations in Fort Assaults
