Zeal Gameplay - New Arena PvP Game (Wizard vs. Wizard)

So I saw a post recently about the new arena game called Zeal. I know it isn't an MMO, but it is based on MMO/Arena PvP so I feel it is relevant enough.

The main game mode atm is 2v2, but in this video I am playing 1v1's as a Wizard: 


The game is in an early and rough stage, however this is pre-alpha plus they are working towards kickstarter. The game is also developed by a super small team, so to me it is quite impressive with what they have done so far.

This match up is Wizard vs. Wizard, and it has a pretty high skill cap and a lot of mind games. The Wizards kit is pretty simplistic, but there is a lot of room for play. Eventually there will be full fledged deck building. This guy was wrecking me all night, but as I learned the match up the duels started to get a lot closer.

The game is a mixture of full aiming, ground targeting, soft lock, hard lock, and self target. Your M1 Auto Attack is full aimed, and for Wizard you shoot a projectile that has a very small explosion radius (Also drains 3% resource on hit.) Thus it is better to aim near your enemy's feet. M2 is a charged Frost Blast that has a larger explosion radius, but it has a cast time.

  • 1.) Lightning: Locks onto your target, deals dmg and stuns.
  • 2.) Meteor: Ground target AoE, stuns enemies.
  • 3.) Absorb Shield: Knocks close enemies back on cast
  • 4.) Blink
  • 5.) Flash Freeze: Ground target AoE, roots enemies.
  • 6.) Glaciate: Stuns enemies that have frozen effect on them. (Must either land a Frost Blast or Flash Freeze.
  • 7.) Tornado: Casts a tornado in a line, that knocks enemies up. Interrupts skills, but enemies can still cast instant cast abilities or M1 auto-attack while in air. "If you land a Frost Blast, your Tornado transforms into Gale temporarily. Gale does more damage and slows, but doesn't knock up. It doesn't use your Tornado CD.
  • 8.) CC Break
  • 9.) Deep Focus: Reduce mana cost, and increase dmg for short time.

I plan to cover more of the game, show some 2v2's and play through the other classes.

Current Classes: Cleric, Judicator, Warrior, Outlaw, Ranger, Wizard

    I like to compare every new game to what is already out there and the value involved.

    I could play a wizard versus Wizard in a fully fledged ,highly polisheg mmorpg,so why would i be interested in 2% of a game?
    Even the very old Silkroad online had this sort of pvp but was still a much better game.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    1.) People like playing new games. 
    2.) Most MMORPG PvP is really bad with very little depth.
