Thread: Friday with Means - September 3rd, 2010 - Battlestation changes

  1. #1

    Funcom employee Friday with Means - September 3rd, 2010 - Battlestation changes

    Unfortunately we did not get a chance to complete the documentation for Crats this week...despite working on it pretty much the entire time. This is the first pet class we have touched and there is a significant amount of change and adjustment that was required and we wanted to make sure all the changes/improvements we wanted for the profession were considered carefully before they were released...unfortunately we ran out of time...but the work is going well. The document will be released to the professionals next week.

    Changes to the Battlestation + PvP Open Playfield

    We have been tweaking the level ranges of the battlestations to "open it up" to allow larger level ranges to participate..hopefully including ranges that did not run consistently. The new level ranges (along with removing the pet-bane "steps" around teleporters) will be coming in the next version. Players will likely not be very competitive with an average setup at the bottom of their level range...but at least they will be able to participate.

    New Level ranges:

    1-30
    31-60
    61-99
    100-149
    150-200
    201-220

    Currently to sign up for the Battlestation you have to travel to "your" level range Sign-Up terminal...this is also being changed. The terminals are being "centralized" in a PvP signup area and the terminals that will be distributed throughout Rubi-Ka will now transport you directly to this location. Access to the new open PvP area will also be from this central location and in the same level ranges. A version of this significant change should be on TestLive next week.

    Looking forward to seeing a great many of you next weekend...the response has been a bit overwhelming

    Have a great weekend!

    Will these be the PvP ranges within the battlestation/PvP arena too, or will the "regular" PvP fighting ranges apply, but the ranges mentioned above can all get into the same instance?

    Level 1 versus level 30 "will likely not be very competitive" is an understatement. If it is for PvP fighting ranges too, you guys might as well just open every PvP arena & battlestation to all levels & let the "regular" PvP fighting ranges apply instead... just like tower fields.

    Interesting changes for Battlestation. But will that mean that the level limit rules will be adjusted when inside Battlestation as well. I mean, if you have 6 level 30s and 6 level 1s running around, no one gets to attack each other, right? Wouldn't seem quite fair.
    Players will likely not be very competitive with an average setup at the bottom of their level range...but at least they will be able to participate.
    Would seem a bit of an understatement in that case.

    Edit: Crushed by the Tazalanche! Nerf j00 and your nimble fingers.

    This seems like a bad idea. Those level ranges were put there for a good reason. The new ranges are way too large.

    I like the BS changes. Especially the part about a BS hub!
