[2020.05.14] In development: Guild Games “Mermen Trials”

Recommended Posts

Greetings, friends!

 

Having finished your studies in the School of Magic, you have become much stronger and wiser, so it is time to tell you what new underwater adventures await you in the V sector of Ayvondil very soon.

 

You have already seen mentions about future trials that the Mermen have prepared for you, in the previous diaries. Now we have decided to treat you with news from the developers and share more details about the event that will make for true guild games. Two stages with a play-off system await you, where you will need not only strength, but military wit to overcome your opponent and accumulate the most points for the win. Only the best of the best will be able to achieve the highest praise from the Mermen faction.

 

Let’s go!

Lobby

 

You won’t dive right into the event — first, there will be preparations for the Mermen’s event. That’s when you will need to get to the entrance of the event to register your guild. Just one participant will be enough to be admitted to the first stage. And keep in mind that there will be battles underwater as well as ashore, so don’t forget about the buffs and bonuses to help you underwater!

Those that successfully register will get into the lobby, where participants can test their strength in the underwater PvP area before the start of the first stage.

At the start of the event, your guild will be matched against an opponent, appropriate by level and strength, who you will then fight face to face. It wouldn’t necessarily be a guild of the opposing Alliance, the matching opponent could be from your own side. But there will only be one victor, so it is prime time to forget about allies.

 

First stage “Symbol of Celebration”

 

So, the games begin! All players in the lobby will be moved to the new location. Those guildmates that are late for the gathering and enter only after the start, will immediately be taken to the first stage, past the lobby.

The first contest is meant to find the most agile of you and consists of taking control of the underwater symbol of power, because that will bring you the most points and allow advancing to the next stage. The participants will need to race their opponents to find a regalia of the Mermen and take hold of it. Each regalia delivered to your hall of trophies will increase your guild’s chances to triumph over the opposition. But of course, the question on your mind is where to get it? So, finding the symbol of power of the Mermen is your first goal. The crown appears randomly on one of the central locations, so you will need to go looking for it. Ideally — split into groups and look around all banner halls, where the regalia may appear. But be careful: all players will be prohibited from using skills before the first interaction with the crown.

Only after the first player touches the crown, everyone’s skills will unlock, but the player with the crown will be the most vulnerable — his movement will be slowed and all skills disabled. But as a bonus for the player holding the symbol of power there will be a chance to ignore control effects, so taking the crown back will take some effort! Keep in mind that during the stage you should be careful with using some active guild skills, because a player under the effect of skills “Guild Blessing” and “Guild Invisibility” will not be able to initially take the crown or pick up the regalia dropped from another player and neither will he be able to put it on its place in the hall of trophies.

 

5.gif

 

The stage itself is divided into rounds. Each new round starts right after one of the guilds brings the regalia to the hall of trophies. At the start of a round all players return to their camp and it all starts again from searching for the crown. The stage is on a time limit, after which the guild with the most points will move on to the next stage.

 

Each opposing player kill will award your guild with 5 points, each first crown capture — 25 points and 500 for a delivered regalia. You should think tactically and develop a course of action that will allow overcoming your opponent on this stage, since only the victor will continue to fight for the opportunity to visit the new dungeon.

Second stage “Proclamation of Valor”

 

The next stage will feature a truly incredible battle against a new opponent, that will be the best matching in power to your guild among those who have won the first stage. It will determine the truly valiant and well-knit team — those that are worthy of entering the Mermen Sanctuary.

 

1588689802.1266.png

 

The goal of the contest is to destroy the enemy’s banner. But in order to start striking upon it, you will first need to demolish 3 defensive pylons that are magically linked with the banner. And as long as at least one of your enemy’s pylons holds, you won’t be able to lay a finger on the enemy’s banner.

 

7.gif

 

Having dealt with the towers, you must immediately start attacking the banner — as the first guild to break it down will immediately win the entire battle. If both banners fall simultaneously or neither guild manages to destroy their opponent’s banner before the time limit — the victor will be determined by the total number of points, counted throughout the fight. The calculation is as follows: killing a player — 10 points, destroying a pylon — 1000 points, destroying the banner — 100000 points.

 

The progress in the event will be tracked on the map, as it happens during the Battles for territories. Enemy pylons, available for an attack, will be displayed as red swords, and friendly ones — as green shields. Upon the destruction of a pylon, its display on the map will be removed. As long as the battle for the towers rages, the grey sword and shield will denote banners for each side. But as soon as all pylons on one side fall, the banner will become available for attack and will be displayed in green or red, depending on the side.

Keep in mind that the battlefield will have certain objects that activate a nice bonus for your guild. After use they will go on cooldown, so you will be able to periodically call upon their help during battle, if you need it.

 

8.gif

 

The winner of the guild games will receive the buff “Blessing of the Mermen” that will allow visiting the new dedicated dungeon. Try your strength and prove that your guild is worthy of the rewards hidden there.

 

That would be all for now, we will tell you more details about the novelties on the V sector later. For now, you have the time to study the information about guild games and plot out your tactics that will definitely bring your guild to victory!

 

Good luck in the game!

@Peony @Holmes What does this mean? Only one player from each guild will participate in first stage? Rest of the guild will only watch?

I'm pretty sure it will be balanced so high level guilds will only meet high level guilds and low level meets low level, it will be almost like arena where lvl26 will not meet lvl30. Or at least that's what I understand from this.

I understood this as 1/4 of the guilds participating actually get to win and its going to match similiar guilds against each other so theres gonna be winners from all sizes of the guilds.

By the way why mages are the only dmg class that gets stun bonus working on a continuous dmg skill?

Edited by necrotp1
Not the only class but only dmg class (dk's death call gets the stun bonus)

Not true. We tried to explain and the legendary mentor Gladiator also highlighted, there will be a match system, where guilds will fight against other guilds of similar stats. We won't let this happen!
