Skyforge Devs Reveal Plans To Overhaul PvP
Skyforge developer Allods Team will be shaking things up a bit when it comes to the fantasy MMORPGs PvP. A recent dev update and video reveals that the devs are planning to overhaul the game’s PvP mechanics sometime in the near future to make PvP more interesting and appealing.
Players will get more incentives to join PvP adventures when the update rolls out. “Now you can get more credits for PvP adventures, along with Knowledge of Enemies, equipment of the current generation, and even temporary legendary items: weapons and artifacts,” says the devs. There’s also Happy Hour, a period of time when players get higher rewards along with an equipment chest for every completed battle. This will happen several times a day.
The devs will also be making changes to Ratings.
“Rating points will be calculated in a different manner. They can be earned in all PvP adventures, except Lugran Research Base. In average, it will take less rating points to get to the next league. For one, the threshold for the Diamond Cohort will be 400 rating points instead of 650. It means the increased value of each victory.
Rating rewards received at the end of a season have also been increased. In addition to Victor's Medals, you can receive a special companion and a unique costume. You can always view your rating directly in the game.”
The PvP update will also introduce a new stat which can only be unlocked and boosted through PvP. The “PvP Stat” can be applied to jewelry to boost a player’s damage and health in Battle of Golems, Battle of Equals, and Massive Battles.
