The MOP Up: Ravendawn’s PvP system goes down in infamy


Ravendawn’s newest dev blog tackles the meat and potatoes of the MMO’s player-vs.-player conflict. Basically, the game is trying to pave the way for open world player killing with an infamy system. It’s never been done right before, but hey, maybe the 1,000th time is the charm?
