Master X Master sells founder’s packs and starts closed beta testing

Make way for NCsoft’s upcoming MOBA because it is hoping to crash the news cycle this weekend. Master X Master just started its closed beta testing, which will run through April 27th.

The closed beta will feature both PvP and PvE content and promises to have plenty of promotions and events for testers to enjoy (in addition to, y’know, the game itself). As might be expected, there will be a full wipe following the CBT just in case you were hoping that this was the first online game in history that wouldn’t do this to a closed beta.

While you can sign up for the chance at getting a key, a fast pass to the beta is available by purchasing one of MxM’s new founder’s packs. The three packs, which range from $20 to $100, offer beta access in addition to masters, titles, skins, name reservations, and other benefits. Founder’s pack goodies will be available to players in both beta and at launch.

Sadly, they didn’t decide to address several of the things I consider critical flaws with MOBA design for my own potential enjoyment… although I do think they made an effort toward a number of them.

It might, maybe be fun for short periods every so often (like, maybe twice a year for an hour) with friends, but that’s about all I would go for with it, which means probably not something I want to spend much on. Oh well, for those who were looking for a PvE MOBA-style game, enjoy!

So you have to pay 100 bucks to get the founder’s pack where you can play as Statesman…Okay, that’s just whorish. Not that I’d expect any better from NCSoft or Nexon, but still.

They could have gotten a lot of good will if they gave all former CoH players statesmen for free. It might have at least alleviated the backlash a bit when he was announced.

Masters take either earned or premium currency to unlock in the game. Some have special requirements, like earn a level or collect weapon fragments from special stages, but most don’t.

Statesman doesn’t have any special requirements and takes about an hour of play to unlock.

The founders packs are definitely not worth it.

The idea of a PvE MOBA is kind of intriguing. I might give this a look when it launches. And good god, they finally stopped putting Statesman front and center as if he was a selling point for this fucking thing! :P

Where is the group of angry NCSOFT protesters meeting up to protest Statesmen being added to the game? I want to get some pics.

I won’t do anything that silly, but I just choose not to give NCsoft money, the same way I choose not to give money to other companies whose ethics I don’t agree with. Voting with your wallet says more than any protest ever will.

First off, I really do not like MOBA’s, finding them painful to play, and really far too competitive for my casual playstyle.

Master x Master is the first MOBA I’ve played which I’ve honestly enjoyed. Their PvE system is far closer to a dungeon crawler (like Dungeon Runners, Torchlight, Marvel Heroes or Diablo) than anything and their PvP is well balanced for even casual players.

Interesting. I’m not a MOBA fan, but I’ll have to give this one a go. Does it have any sort of MMO type character progression?

Yup. It is a new combination with more PVE. I’m definately going to give it a good try. MJ has played it and streamed it for MOP. It looks like good fun.

The game was primarily PvE and with arena PvP, the MOBA map was only added in the final phase of Alpha.

There is so much more to MxM than just being another MOBA and I really hope people can look past that tag because it is a really good game.

Reader

I can look past the tag. I can’t look past NCSoft.

Coolio. I’m not sure about the founders pack, but I’m in otherwise. I think Jinsoyun might be my hero. She is a bad ass in BnS.
