Le RvR n’est pas le contenu final, c’est tout simplement le jeu !

Publié : 8 février 2013

Résumé : Ici, Mark explique pourquoi Camelot Unchained diffère tant des jeux dont le RvR/PvP est "plaqué sur" le jeu principal.

  • Jeu TriRealm (trois royaumes), orienté vers le RvR
  • Pas un jeu uniquement RvR, ni dont le RvR est une fonctionnalité additionnelle d'un système plus vaste
  • Le but est que les artisans soient la principale source d'équipement en ayant :
    • Aucun équipement "droppé" par les PNJs
    • Aucun équipement provenant de quêtes ou de tâches
    • Aucun jeton d'équipement
  • Progression par le combat, en aidant en RvR ou via l'artisanat(ps de progression PvE)
  • Carte ouverte en grande majorité
  • Options de voyage limitées
  • CC afin que les petits groupes aient une chance contre des plus grands
