Tournament Style PvP Arena


4 posts in this topic

Imagine an arena for players to compete against each-other in a tournament style setting, ex. 16 players arranged randomly into rounds where the winners move up and the loser is eliminated. With a grand prize for the winner and two runner up prizes for both who made it to semi-finals. The arena should have a minimum level of 50. Gear will also not be allowed during the fights, Each player would be given a "Tournament (WeaponTypeName)" and a "Tournament (OffhandWeaponName)" as weapons for main and offhand, as well as a generic awakening weapon.. Both having a set AP/DP value equal across the board with no other effects to speak of. Possibly an option to keep your current armor on for cosmetic purposes but would not contribute to stats. Level and Skill sets would be all that matters here. Accuracy would be an issue for lower leveled players, but that is part of leveling up. But this offers a chance to fight people on equal gear footing to see who is really the best.

 

Possible there could be two level classes 50-55 and 56+ to separate people who have awakening and who don't. The award for winning could contain things like black stones, memory fragments, and maybe a chance for some boss stuff only for the victor. And maybe a flat rate 10million silver for being number 1. 1m for 2nd place and 500k for 3rd?

 

I think this would be a good idea. I like the PvP in this game but I am forced to grind for ages to level up gear which is fine to be able to PvP in the real world. but a tournament like this would be nice for people who just want fight without having to worry about anything but skill.

after equalizing gear you'll notice that there are counter classes as this is a rock-scissor-paper style game :D

Yeah it's a nice idea, but as said, 1v1 wouldn't really work that well. Berserker can decimate any class at low AP/DP levels 1v1 if given equal gear and player skill. Should be 2v2 or 3v3 at least.

That said, there's nothing stopping you from arranging this kind of tournament yourself. Of course you cannot enforce gear restrictions so you're stuck with trusting people not to abuse it.

if the equalizing is done right every class can win vs. every other class if played correctly and outplaying their opponent. true some matches will have a harder time than others, but the battlefield they fight on will have a big thing to say about this and the amount of consumable's allowed.

 

as example: do 100/100/160 setup, big open map with lots of places to take advantage off, give only 20HP pots and 20MP pots, 1 food (free choice), and alch stone (free choice). this would created an incredibly skill based setup between all classes, allowing the one with the best RL skills to win the majority of the time ^^.

 

you can also have the same map setup with a "no rules" setup, so you can choose to enter a tournament where you got what you bring and can use everything (for those that want that).

 

but i think an actual equalizing pvp tournament in a good pvp map would be amazing. 1v1, 3v3, 5v5 ^^

you cannot effectively give rewards to top X by doing so. which means besides the fun of the pvp the incentive to use a lot of time and bring in the best players is very low.
