Perfect Ten: Best MMO debuts by year, 2007-2017

Continuing from my previous column, I’m going to be running through the second decade of graphical MMORPG launches and picking the best title to debut in any given year. From doing the first decade, I know that this thought exercise isn’t always fair; some years have several great contenders, while others see one mediocre one rise due to a lack of competition.

Still, it’s kind of fun to look back at MMO history and to see which game was really the best of that year. And if you ever felt sore that a particular title got overlooked, well, consider this a retroactive awards ceremony of some sort.

Let’s dive right in where we left off with 2007!

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.

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.”

One Shots: Tour guides

It turns out that MMORPG players really don’t need much prompting to go out and take a bazillion screenshots of their favorite in-game zones, as evidenced by the avalanche of photos generated by last week’s challenge.

SmugglerSteel kicks us off this this neon nightmare: “I knew exactly where I needed to tour in SWTOR for this one. I will always remember my first trip to Nar Shaddaa. I was blown away away by the color and aesthetic. I always thought it had a very Bladerunner inspired feel, yet still did it’s own thing.”

Like any good casino, Nar Shaddaa is designed so that players can never figure out how to leave. SmugglerSteel forwards his mail there now.

Revelation Online invites you to battle for glory in its new colosseum

It was teased, but now it’s truly here. Revelation Online is introducing the colosseum, and its world will never be the same. Specifically, it will be far more violent. Seriously, it’s a place for violent gladiatorial contests; that is really violent. Also, it’s a place where you can compete for valuable prizes as part of an ever-expanding event in the game.

That one is probably going to be more resonant for individual players. The violence is kind of de rigueur at this point.

Players will earn a Merit Plate just for signing up to take part, and winning matches in the colosseum will bring you closer to rewards for being the best of the best. If you’re not the best, though… well, you’ll still get plenty out of it, as just participating earns points which go toward PvP ranks and associated rewards. So it’s worth it to strive, even if you aren’t very good at first.

Revelation Online is opening a new EU fresh start server today as First Contact launches

Gosh, isn’t it nice to have a fresh server to start on? No old connections, no old animosities, no problems to worry about. It’s like a fresh playground to just enjoy the game before you go back to making the exact same mistakes that made you long for a fresh start in the first place. Now you too can experience that when Revelation Online launches an EU fresh start server on March 22nd – today. Which just so happens to be launch day for the game’s latest update, First Contact, which chiefly focuses on PvP upgrades and modes.

As always, the draw for the new server is that everyone starts new on a level playing field, with no existing characters to come in and muck things up. So, depending on how many people are willing to sacrifice sleep and careers for relentless leveling, there will be only a handful of max-level characters for the first week or so. If this is the sort of server you’re looking for, keep your eyes peeled for Emollion (the new server) when it opens up.

Revelation Online announces PvP-centric First Contact expansion

Just as it turns a year old here in the west, Revelation Online is announcing a new expansion called First Contact. PvP players of all stripes, this one’s for you.

“The cross-server feature of the update allows players the opportunity to partake in ruthless arena battles and battlegrounds side by side with players from their server as well as a cross-server auction house that is accessible to all,” My.com’s PR says. Cross-server modes will function for multiple modes, including small-scale arenas, 10v10 Darkwood Vale, 20v20 Iron Precipice Blitz, 30v30 Machinist’s Gauntlet, and guild tourneys.

And in addition to localizing for French and German, “My.com will open up a brand-new server, open to all, so players can forge new friendships, create new bonds, and perhaps even spark a few competitive rivalries!”

A date for the update isn’t given; it just says “soon.” Check out the new images and trailer down below!
