How much PVP is there? Things with Stygian Abyss are starting to settle down, I'd like to get the new Order/Chaos game going. It's kind of like capture the flag, more of "defend the flag" and will take place on Terra Sanctum. I'd prefer some life in PVP before I spend any time on this, however. Most of the code is written, really would just have to refine and test. Thank you!

theres really no incentive to pvp these days. not much of anyone to fight and O/C has become a "go to the game and get your free points so you can get your item" thing.

it would be nice if there was more incentive to either go and pvp or put characters in O/C for pvm giving you someone to go kill and potentially starting a fight.

the O/C pvm aspect was nice until people realized that to get a good item you had to be a really high rank to equip it making it worthless to do unless you wanted to grind the points at the game for at least 6 months.

I do have my pvm Sdi mage in O/C because I like to be able to reequip my shield when if I decide to take it off.

What type of incentives are you looking for besides the fun and challenge?

im not really looking for anything personally since I just sometimes want a fight.

new items might be an incentive for joining O/C something for pvm characters.

maybe an O/C champion that when you kill you get points and can use those points to get some non rank based items.(like khaldun, get points get what you want)

the champion could be summonable using heads of your enemys always in the same area and sending a shardwide message.
with a cooldown of at least an hour but not too long so because then it would only be done in off hours.


the items don't have to be powerfull they just have to be useable even if its just luck items or something.

item examples:
a 3 piece luck set gloves sleeves and helmet. (to complement the fortune set)
some halfway decent weapons with slayers on them.
protection/killer talismans

Yes a points system based on player kills alone to get special items but there would need to be some way of stopping people farming the points ie both chars would need to do a certain amount of damage to each other for points to be awarded which should then make farming harder to do maybe.

If the new game is implemented, points distributed at the end depend on how much pvp action. If you just get the flag and guard it with no opposition, you will reciece limited points.

Maybe some uber weapons to aid the side with less participants?

They would delete when the game ends, of course.

I dislike it because its not good balance wise. if your outnumbered it doesn't mean your going to lose.

now if you get a super weapon for being outnumbered what happens when its a 2v1 and then the guy outnumbered kills one of the enemys it becomes a 1v1 with a super weapon.
also what if the guy who is outnumbered isn't at a disadvantage because his enemys are less experienced? now hes got more of a leg up on his enemy.


you might argue well if you get that weapon you don't have to use it, but that's not how I play if you give me an advantage I feel obligated to use it.
I also expect my enemy to use everything available as well I don't want them to have an excuse and I don't want an excuse for my own loss.

if I die you killed me when I was trying my best and you should feel good about it.

i second this ... this would give an unfair advantage to a already half way decent player ... one would only have to pretend to loose then get the gear and basically drop the hammer on the op-poser and just annihilate them... maybe npcs to storm whoever is in control currently and limit the npc's to how many people are inside the arena and controlling it
