Too much content. What would your mmorpg be without battlegrounds?

This should tell you something about incredible amount of content and systems in AoW. These arenas were supposed to be in at launch. Did you hear one person complain? Nope, not one pvpr said a word. 

 

There is simply too much to do. Even those who have been playing 6 months didn't complain. We were too busy to worry about it. Plus the world pvp is so damn good.

 

 

 

Battlefield Arena: Coming May 22nd!

 

Update: The next patch will be implementing this exciting feature into the world of Wushu on May 22nd. Keep an eye on the guides and homepage for more info on this exciting new area.

   On April 10th,Age of Wushu is launching out of their last closed beta. The epic Free to Play MMO will be opening another new feature to the game, theBattlefield/Battle Arena. This is an exciting chance for some simple team based dueling for EXP and more. The PvP arena will be a great place to test your skills in a confined space, and improve your strategies for the more open and deadly world outside the arena.

   There will be two modes that players can select to take part in. The first is the Power Competition, a point based mode that scores teams for the kills that they have made. The other is Death Mode a faster and more intense scenario that is simple, No respawns and No time limit. The last team standing at the end of Death Mode is the victor. 

 

 Another twist thrown into the Death Mode, are Secret Association Experts. During the battle a random player will be designated as a higher priority target for a team. Killing this player will result in a Buff for the team that kills him or her. Often times a team can focus too much on the SAE buff, that they will be leaving themselves open to attack from their opponents.

 In addition to the two game types, there will be two arena locations to choose from. 12-person teams battle in the Ancient Tomb Sect, while the 24-person battle arena takes place in the Muyun Villa. Both arenas have the two modes mentioned before, but the environment is different adding new areas to leap across or run up and initiate combat. 

 

The Battlefield will allow players more chances to earn EXP. And with the new Meridian system drawing heavily on Combat to cultivate, players can get more Chi to activate those new skill points and harness more strength from internal skills. Both Meridians and the Battlefield, go live with the Age of Wushu launch on April 10th.

    Battlefield Arena

     

    In the newly released Battlefield there are two modes, Faction Mode and Death Mode. Players must be free of Novice Protection to join a Battlefield. Battles may last anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes.

     

    Faction Mode

       In this mode, the player can choose between the 6v6 Ancient Tomb Sect Battlefield, the 6v6 Muyun Villa Battlefield and the 12v12 Muyun Villa Battlefield. Players can choose to help whichever faction they desire. The faction that reaches the specified kill count, or has the highest kill count at the end of the allotted time wins. 

    Death Mode

    This mode has the same settings as in Faction Mode. However, instead of team battles players will partake in free for all PvP. Players will be rewarded based on their scores and kill counts.

     

    When the Battlefield starts, the system will randomly select a player as a Silent Temple Expert. The Expert will gain bonus buffs to help them resist stuns, however, they will not be able to use any healing items.

     

      Kill the Silent Temple Expert to gain bonus scores. The Expert will also drop the Silent Temple Script, which can be picked up and used to take on the identity of the Silent Temple Expert.

    Battlefiled Rewards

       When Battlefield is over, the result screen will display the player's kill count and score. Players will be rewarded based on their performance in the battle. Players can check their previous Battlefield results in the 'My Battlefield' interface. Players may accumulate Battlefield Levels and Faction Affinity by participating in Battlefields. Killing enemies in the Battlefield gains players a certain amount of experience. When the Battlefield is over, the system will give certain amount of Chi to players based on their performance.

     

       Battlefield Levels represent a player’s effort in the Battlefield. Players with high Battlefield Levels can enter high-level rooms, and fight against other players with similar Levels. Equipment Rewards will be added in later stages. The top 100 players on the server will be placed on the Jianghu Celebrities List - Battlefield Section.

    Battlefield Gameplay

    1)  Enter the game and click “My Battlefield” in the bottom left corner to open battlefield registration interface.

    2) Choose a Battlefield map, then select a Faction to join. If the Faction has too many members players will be given a choice, wait until more slots in the chosen Faction open up, or join the opposing Faction. Selecting the 'Quick Join' option automatically slots players in the Faction with the least amount of people. There is a Battlefield Mode that requires both sides to have full members to start; other modes do not have this restriction.

    There will be a 10.5 minute wait to start each Battlefield. During the waiting time, players may not join    other Battlefields. To cancel the Battlefield queue click 'Quit' in the queue screen.

     

     3) In Faction Mode Players' clothing will change based on what Faction they join. Players may not quit their Faction team while in a Battlefield, or invite other players.

     

    4) In Faction Mode, the side who gets 30 kills or kills more players when time is over wins. On the scoreboard, bright colors represent the player's Faction, while dark colors represent the Enemy Faction.

     

     5) In Death Mode, the system will randomly select a player as a Silent Temple Expert. The Expert will gain bonus buffs to help them resist stuns, however, they will not be able to use any healing items.

     

     6) When Silent Temple Expert is killed, they will drop the Silent Temple Script, which can be picked up and used to take on the identity of the Silent Temple Expert. If no one picks up the Script within 30 seconds, or the original Silent Temple Expert leaves the game, the system will randomly assign a player to be the new Silent Temple Expert.

    7) While in a Battlefield players may click an icon next to the mini-map to check the current scores. However, the score sheet only displays kill counts, combos, and death counts. The number of levels earned will be displayed in the Final Result screen.

    8) Click the 'Quit' button on top of the scoreboard to leave an ongoing Battlefield. However, abandoning a Battlefields creates a debuff on players, preventing them from joining any Battlefields for a short amount of time. Leaving a Battlefield before it is done negates any rewards.

     

    9) Check previous Battlefield results in the 'My Battlefield' interface. A friend's Battle results can also be found in this interface.

     

    The top 100 Battlefield players will be recorded in the Jianghu Celebrities List, the top 3 players will have title rewards.
