Otherland beefs up its clan and PvP feature set

    
6

Progress on the revived Otherland project has been running quiet for most of this spring, but now that looks to change. Today, Drago Entertainment announced some of the improvements that it’s making to the Tad Williams MMO for its beta build.

First of all, Otherland has added in its clan system, with the ability to create guilds, set up a hierarchy, level them up, post daily messages, and transfer leadership. The game will even have a mall vendor that will sell exclusive items to players who belong to a clan.

The other big improvement is in regards to its PvP gameplay. Players now have the option to enter and leave PvP mode at will, enjoying an XP bonus when flagged for a fight. There will be other incentives to PvP, including its own ranking and rewards system.

I loved the books.  If this can capture even a fraction of the setting and atmosphere it’ll be worth checking out.  Fingers crossed….

Having PvP be a toggle but providing an XP bonus for being so flagged is an interesting twist.  I actually like it in theory.  It’ll be interesting to see how it actually plays out.
So long as it’s a relatively small XP bonus, I suspect it’ll be a great success.  If they make it too big, though, people will feel obligated to flag for PvP even if they hate it.  That wouldn’t be good.

I never like this:

“The game will even have a mall vendor that will sell exclusive items to players who belong to a clan.”

That line alone cuts casual gamers who don’t belong to a clan right out of some potentially cool stuff.

Feodor I’ve missed all the development with the new group so fill me in here. What about it is broken? Systems? Bugs? Core mechanics? Setting?

Sorry, but the game is bad and broken beyond repair. There is nothing they can do to change that.
