You are correct. There are no plans for instanced battlegrounds with even numbers right now.Scambug said:From the little research I've done, it seems the answer is no. Could anyone confirm?
I've been playing Warhammer for a few weeks now and it reminded me how much I don't enjoy open world RvR, at least 2 faction RvR with no efficient balance mechanic.
Open world fights almost always go the same way: one faction face rolls the other over some objective, the face rolled faction gives up and the face rollers end up fighting against doors and PvE mobs.
Long story short, I realized I only enjoy MMO PvP when there are systems in place that force even sides, like in battle grounds. Doesn't matter the scale, it can be small or large but the sides must be even.
CU will be a 3 faction game and it's commonly accepted that these types of PvP environments tend to self regulate population balance. I wouldn't know, I've never played a 3 faction RvR game.
So my next question is will CU only count on this 3 faction self regulation or will there be systems in place to force (not encourage) some sort of faction balance in the open world ?
Backers who purchased tiers with IT, Alpha, Beta 1, and even Beta 2 (CUBE only) have access to the game client for scheduled tests and CUBE.MightyUnclean said:I remember when Camelot Unchained was THE game that everyone was drooling over. Savior of open world PvP, sandbox was just becoming the hot trend, all that. It was going to be AWESOME! People (me included) pledged and bought into the game early and hyped it on here to no end and then...crickets. Years later, there still isn't even a game client to test for those who pledged. Look at the forum activity on here if you want an indication of how much interest there is these days. Early pledging and early access, the ultimate hype killer. Who knows, maybe it will gain a second wind if and when it ever becomes a testable game, much less an actual release.
The mess Broadsword has made of DAOC is very different from the version of it most CU backers fondly remember from the pre-EA years. If DAOC was still roughly the game we loved back in the early to mid part of the previous decade, we very well might still play it. (And we don't play the free shard version of it because PvE level grinding for months before we can RvR isn't what we liked about it.)Hariken said:I agree and if all these people are so hot for DAOC why aren't they playing it. They do know its still up and running right.grimgryphon said:
No thanks. CU is no DAoC
