Bless Unleashed shares open PvP changes and casts a spotlight on the PvP-minded Court of Ravens Union

We built a very good house or something.

Around mid-December, the devs of Bless Unleashed explained that the game’s open PvP was due for some changes and outlined a few of them. That conversation continues with additional details about which areas are safe zones and how the game’s Notoriety system will work.

A number of main quest hubs and major cities will be non-PvP areas as well as a 15-meter radius around Soul Pyres — that much was elaborated on before, but players can now know specifically the locations that are free from open PvP including all of the Carzacor Plains, Navarra, and the Gnoll Wastes among other locales.

The post then goes on to explain Notoriety (the new name for Karma), which comes in seven levels, each with benefits such as stat bonuses and restrictions such as grouping limitations and whether players or NPCs can attack you. The post also explains how long it takes for each level of Notoriety to drop to level zero, the number of Notoriety Points to reach each level, and approximately how many kills it takes. Notoriety will also drop when players kill Notorious players, and a Fame system will be introduced as incentive for players to hunt rampant PK’ers. There also will be a cash shop item that will let players drop their Notoriety.

If you think you’ll be among those running around looking to pick unsolicited fights with people in the open world, consider joining the Court of Ravens, the third Union of Bless Unleashed that offers member perks like PvP combat stat bonuses, ways to increase or slow your Notoriety gain, and the ability to dodge more frequently than others.

Please fix the article. There is no item that brings down notoriety in the Cash Shop. It’s bought by stars seed which is a currency you get by playing the game and it’s not something you can gain in the Cash Shop either. Just saying.

… They haven’t learned their lesson then. Remember the uproar around locking anti-PvP items to the cash-shop as a time-limited item for OG Bless? Because as forgettable as the game ultimately was, I sure do. Just as I remember the talk of bribing key content creators with permanent options to remove PvP flags from their characters.

A system meant to keep people from PKing players too much only matters when it is actually enforced. This isn’t enforcement when you let them pay out of it. There’s no punishment there, no risk at all taken.

… It’s almost as if this team WISHES for their titles to be unequivocal failures from the moment of their release.

Yeah that’s wrong. That item is bought with starseed which is currency you get by just playing. And starseed isn’t purchasable in the Cash Shop.

A trash system is still a trash system. You commenting about it being buyable in-game literally doesn’t change the point of my post. If you want to punish players or put a risk to such a thing? Don’t. Include. Crap. Like this.

The system itself besides reads like a half-baked mess so I don’t expect anything to be done with it either.

Of course there is…it just wouldn’t be a dumpster fire without one!

I don’t often hope games completely flop, Bless Unleashed is an exception. They deserve all of the hate and skepticism they get.
