Trove begins testing 5v5 battle arena

    
11

Not everyone gets along all of the time, even in Trove. And Trion Worlds wants to let players know that it’s OK to have a mild disagreement that can only be settled on the field of combat, which is why the studio is creating a 5v5 battle arena.

The battle arena is currently in testing and throws teams of five against each other to repeatedly capture the enemy’s flag. Trion has further plans for the arena, including attaching rewards to the bouts and allowing players to construct their own creative arenas.

Samizdat I don’t know if you noticed the THOUSAND or so Crafting Recipes but guess what, High Tec Character builds isn’t what Trove is about. Trove is first and foremost a Building game, all that adventure stuff was added after. If your looking for diverse builds, you’re playing the wrong game.

It seems interesting, but there’s almost no build variety in Trove. You get four abilities for your class and can’t swap them out for anything else. It’s very easy to compute an optimal gear build, and almost no variety in itemization. The only flexibility you have is in your flask and the two special powers you get with your flask.

In short, Trove is missing half of the fun of MMORPG PvP, which is tweaking your build and staying ahead of the meta.

It is fun enough in short bursts but once you hit a certain point, you’ll either have to get with a group and do towers or grind grind grind gear slowly.

Omedon digi_owl It was a triple dog dare and to jump to the TDD from a double dare is a breech of ettiquette but not unheard of.

“If its PVP someone will take it very very seriously.:
And that’s why I phrased it as a dare… because yes, someone will do it, and they will look stupid in doing so.  Just like the guy who licks a metal pole in winter on a double dog dare.

My biggest worry is what it will do with the PVE experience, as all too often it goes to crap when PVP is introduced (mob AI and human players are nothing alike).

Curious how many huge open world areas there are for this ? Willing to give it a chance , just every time I watch any streams on twitch it sees the vast majority of landscapes are islands that aren’t very large.
Just wondered if there are any huge wandering play areas that make it seem like a massive open world ?
