Do you want PVP? Come and get some!

DO YOU WANT PVP? COME AND GET SOME!

We've made a few adjustments to our PvP system in order to increase PvP participation and competitive behavior.

First of all, we've made participating in the Hero Happy Hours a lot more rewarding for everyone.

  • Implemented a participation reward to the Hero Happy Hours. Every 5 deaths the user will receive 1 Heroic Coin. (Does not count suicide deaths)
  • Reduced the price of 100M Zeny bags in the Heroic Shop from 30 to 10.
  • Implemented Donation Tokens to the Heroic Shop at a cost of 100 HC each.

This means that participating in the Hero Happy Hours event will not only award you with a nice sum of Zeny, it will now also open the doors to the entire Donation Mall, which includes a huge collection of items and rares!!  You can visit the Donation Mall by speaking with the Donation Girl NPC in Caspen.

But we don't want PvP to be active only 2 hours a day...we want to increase the over all PvP scene! In order to increase the PvP activity during non-HHH hours, we've made the following changes:

  • Implemented a participation reward to the Hero Arena. Every 3 deaths the user will receive 1 Deathmatch point. (Does not count suicide deaths)
  • Implemented an hourly PvP Activity Race, in which players earn activity points for participating in the Hero Arena PvP. Each kill awards 5 activity points, while each death awards 1 activity point. The top 3 players will be automatically rewarded at the end of each hour.
  • 1st place: 1 Donation Token ~  2nd: 1 Billion Zeny  ~ 3rd: 500m Zeny. The Race runs every hour, every day! Starts and ends at minute 59 of each hour.

As you can see we are being extremely generous with the prices of Zeny bags and Donation Tokens. I can assure you that our generosity will not last too long, so make sure to take advantage of it while you can! Expect a heroic coin price increase on Donation Tokens soon.

We look forward to hearing your feedback and very excited to see BLOOD all over our PvP rooms!

P.S ~ There is a new Donation Rotation coming soon, so take advantage of the discount prices and save those donation tokens !
Let the bloodbath BEGIN!

The good thing with being rewarded after a certain amount of deaths is newbie participation can be expected. Kill or die it matters not! This is awesome!

I am sorry to be negative, I am not against participation reward in fact I want participation reward too for new players. But isn't getting rewarded for dying in PVP is going backward?

Now anyone can create novices, ungeared 3rd character and pretend to be actually participating in HHH while suiciding. Surely we got rules regarding PVP farming, but can GM really ban players who can pretend to be helpless in PVP? Abuser can even login an alt account in a different IP and pretend to be a new player.

Again I am not trying to be totally negative. I like the idea of participation reward, but getting rewarded for dying is really questionable. Not to mention that we got tradable rewards from Heroic coins.

Why can't we just have similar rewarding scheme where players are rewarded for staying alive in the map, and then actually help the newbies get geared so they can actually compete instead of asking them to feed the veterans?

On another note, this promotes more high output damage builds  or suicide build for veterans which is already bad in our server. There's too many item that boost damage in our server and most veterans disregard their survivability because of our existing system where everything is about getting kills. Now not only you can kamikaze build, you'll also get rewarded for using it.

Another thing is, getting rewarded for dying doesn't motivate newbies that much, in fact if it does, BG should be always packed with newbies but being with a lot of newbies I realized that a lot don't simply wanna get bullied. Being with a guild of 80% returner set user,  they rather farm in PVE and get themselves geared so they can actually PVP instead of going to BG . So I doubt rewarding them to get bullied will bring PVP activity back. I'd rather suggest to think outside of the box and make this newbies be closely capable of competing. Ex. Utilize the siege sets that doesn't stack with most donation headgears, use it as a freebies. At least it will make them tanky and capable of making cheaper builds. Isn't that why IRO implement that thing.

Regardless thank you for being so generous with the rewards. It's only my opinion about the system and I am glad you are trying to make the PVP alive.

I honestly doubt veterans would get motivated to PVP just because they can earn rewards for dying now. But with the donation token for 100 Heroic coins, they'll probably get motivated to go back for a while in PVP and grab the opportunity.

I don't think this will promote suicide builds among veterans. Because let's face it, everyone is obsessed with winning, and not losing.

Maybe change the reward to combat coins and make it every 2-3 hours. Adding more zeny bag in the server will just further ruin the market prices of items. It's 36b zeny bags added in the server everyday and it rotates in the server. NPCs don't absorb this zeny added in the server everyday, it will just keep on piling up.

We should aim in lowering the prices of some items in the server, to make it a little affordable for new players, not only for donators and old players with tons of b bags stored in their storage.

Giving combat coins will help lower the price of some combat items in long run, and perhaps will motivate more the PVP enthusiast to actually PVP.

1st: 2 combat coins
2nd:1 combat coins
3rd: 1 donation token
