The woodpunk survival sandbox MMO Last Oasis saw a hot iron and decided to strike. With the furor that’s still raging over New World’s decision to tone down its FFA PvP, the devs decided to take the opportunity to rib Amazon Game Studios over the matter in tweet form.
The tweet shared a picture of a respawn button, touting it as Last Oasis’ “very functional opt-in feature for PVP.” The tweet then threaded back around to a recent developer video that outlined the number of ways that players could find safety in the otherwise open PvP world of Last Oasis. It also posted a follow-up video that better explains the game’s safe logout feature.
In case you happened to miss the smoke column coming from the related comments section in these parts, this is all about New World and its decision to introduce PvP in the form of opt-in faction conflicts and 50v50 territory battles after alpha testing revealed that most people were interested in ganking lowbies instead of fighting fair. “For those folks who desire that harsh PVP environment, New World may not be your favorite game. However, we do hope you enjoy the PVP we will offer,” admitted AGS in its post.
Recently, some Open World MMO decided to split the PVE and PVP crowds by making PVP an opt-in feature.
