Can someone explain to me the appeal of dueling in MMOs? Does it step from a childhood steeped in Harry Potter’s one-on-one confrontations? Is it a pleasant distraction while hanging out in town? Does it settle whose epeen is the greatest, once and for all? Or is it something else entirely?
While I contemplate that question, you can try out AdventureQuest 3D’s new dueling system when it arrives in the game next week. One vs. one PvP is coming as an option, although the game’s developers are quick to note that you can turn it off if you don’t want to be pestered by dueling requests.
“Unlike the group PvP (which you can test now if you are a Guardian), one-on-one duels are NOT scaled,” the devs advised. “So gear your character to the max. Your cross-skills can make or break a duel. Choose wisely. Also, do not forget to buff up.”
