Grumpy about the state of PvP in that other MMO? Gloria Victis has arrived to bolster its own version of the classic MMO competitive mode. The MMO has buffed up both instanced and open PvP with new ranking systems and improved rewards for those who participate for their faction. A point to PvP? Be still my heart.
“Players can now compete each other in duels to climb up the top of leaderboard, fighting in fair environment where their own skill determines the outcome of a duel. […] But it isn’t the only change done to promote massive open PVP battles between 3 factions even more. 6 locations which can be fought over, captured and developed by players – massive castles surrounded by farms and lumber mills – have been turned into open PVP locations thanks to reducing the non-looting zones, which are a buffer between the very few safezones and the open PVP areas. However, while the non-looting zones have been reduced, we have added 3 new locations in there too! Each faction has access to its’ own fort where new players can travel in order to support their nation by defending these outposts or upgrading their fortifications, without risk of being looted in their first hours in-game.”
The patch also includes “bandaging wounds and the first load of herbal and alchemic consumables,” with a tease for a future cooking update too.
