Skyforge revamps PvP with the Gods at War update

The newest update for Skyforge is now live and changes a lot about the way PvP works. Before, PvP had gear scaling to the point that it was almost irrelevant while walking in, but now gear scaling has more factors affecting that scale. It also introduces the new PvP-based Honor stat, which affects your overall stats and how much damage you’ll deal on balance. Players who wish to accomplish a lot in PvP will want to stack on Honor via stat adjustment. There’s also the new Happy Hour system, which encourages you to take part in PvP at set times for increased rewards across the board.

Speaking of increased rewards, the game is also rolling out the myLoot Marketplace as a means of getting more stuff for myCoins. Taking part in events and purchasing items earn myCoins, and said coins can be used for purchasing items in the marketplace, a sort of “here’s your extra for buying something” reward. Check out the full rundown if you’re looking for more details on the new system.

Skyforge details the coming changes to PvP with new stats

There’s been a bit of a problem with the balance of PvP in Skyforge. The developers want players to be rewarded for accomplishments in PvP, but the scaling system wasn’t working and players with good PvE gear were still coming out on top. Hence the new Honor stat being added to the game with the upcoming Gods at War patch, which should help players with a PvP focus outplay those who are running with whatever stats work for PvE.

Honor caps will increase with each season, but the maximum bonus for Honor will always be at 35% extra health and 20% extra damage in PvP. Honor will always be available through stat replacement, which requires a special item earned through taking part in PvP matches. In short, you’ll get more Honor stats by taking part in more PvP combat, and PvP combat will allow you to gain Honor stats which in turn make you better at PvP. It’s rather straightforward as progression goes, really.

Revelation Online is adding New Sulan over the summer

The latest producer’s letter for Revelation Online has a secret, and that secret is New Sulan. We know from the letter that it’s definitely planned to come out over the summer; that’s not a question. But almost everything else is shrouded in mystery and promises to “discuss it more as launch gets closer,” which will no doubt leaving players in awe about what is surely well-planned content designed to engage all.

We know that New Sulan is more than a visual makeover, as it will contain new mechanics and systems; we just don’t know what any of those mechanics or systems are. However, we’re also told that it will probably not be identical to the Chinese release of the content, which adds further mystery. But it’s new things for PvE players as well, so there’s plenty of reason to get excited even if you’re not yet altogether certain what you’re getting excited about.

Skyforge answers player questions about future plans

So what’s in the cards for the future of Skyforge? Players always want to know, and the most recent set of community questions and answers is covering exactly that. For example, the future does not appear to include new Invasion opponents or new divine form upgrades; while there are new enemy groups planned, they’re planned for a new form of challenge rather than more invasions. Nor are the developers willing to reveal any of the brainstorming about the next class to enter the game, although player requests for more support classes are being heard.

What is confirmed for the future at this point include new stories about the familiar areas of the game world, new improvements to the UI to make it easier to figure out how your character is progressing, and new class balance passes. There are also plans to keep a close eye on gear upgrading and areas where Elder Gods can be used, as both are part of the fun of the game. Check out the full Q&A if you want to know more about what happens next for the title.

Revelation Online gets a WvWvW endgame with the launch of the Imperial Wars update

The endgame in Revelation Online is heating up today with the launch of Imperial Wars, My.com’s latest content patch. The nifty part is that this is one of the content drops that really make an MMORPG worthy of the name, thanks to the fact that the “entire population of a server can participate in fighting another server for dominance of the Imperial Frontier.” It’s basically WvWvW.

“The Frontier map is the largest battleground in the game and hosts multiple castles, towns and camps for the rivaling sides to fight over. Each week two of the game’s servers will be locked into a series of daily activities on the massive battleground map, alternating between attacking camps, gathering intelligence or even taking down the Crystal Chaos beast for its resources. Players will need to participate in the daily activities to be eligible for the rewards in the decisive final confrontation at the end of the week! Up to 300 players per side can simultaneously join on the Imperial Frontier in the final battle held each Sunday.”

Today’s update also rolls out new hireable mercenaries, tweaks to the badge and rune system, and “new class optimization options to improve healing or damaging effects, reducing damage taken, to get the most out of the characters.”

Revelation Online merges Western and Russian dev teams, unifies client build

Change is coming to Revelation Online, even if it’s largely under the hood for the moment. You folks might recall that the My.com MMO got a new producer and vision back in January. Now it appears yet another a new captain has taken the helm, as newly installed Global Producer Petr Lagun pens in a dev blog today.

“The company has decided to change its operation strategy and in an effort to close the gaps between the West (Europe and North America) and Russian operation teams there will be a single producer for the Western and Russian markets – and that’s me,” he writes.

So how does that affect Revelation Online itself?

“For Revelation Online, it means that there will be less differences between the Russian versions and Western version of the game as we are hoping to unify the same client build, our current aim is to do this with our first unified build which is currently under the name ‘New Sulan.’ While we are working on this update, the team is preparing exciting and interesting events for PvP and PvE players.”
