Tuning PvP during a game’s testing process has to be a thankless task, but the team at Worlds Adrift are up to the challenge. Responding to player feedback on what’s not quite working with the system, the members have drafted up a few ideas that should improve the PvP scene going forward.
Most of these ideas are focused on keeping PvP from being frustrating and lopsided in favor of the attackers. The team is giving players stronger anti-boarding measures, including land- and air-based swivel guns, as well as a dome that protects a shipyard from aerial assault.
A really interesting change is that an assault team will deplete “personal reviver charges” as fighters are killed, and once those charges are up, further resurrections will damage their own ship. “The intention of these changes is for long range attackers to only have a few attacks before they have to risk their ship being torn apart, or to force them to bring their ship in close to engage in an all-out ship battle and allow their crew to revive more often,” the team said.
Want to see something neat? One of the players used the game’s island creator tool to recreate the floating bathhouse from the animated film Spirited Away.
