PvP in Free MMORPG Games

Player vs player content, also called PvP, is a tricky thing. On one hand, most people will agree that PvP is absolutely essential for all MMORPGs but getting it just right and balanced is not easy to do. The best PvP in MMORPG games needs both fun and fairness to succeed.

Players prefer a system where they have a fighting chance against players of other classes or races that are not too much higher or lower level than they are. In other words, they prefer a balanced PvP system where a barbarian can fight a wizard if they are of the same level.
In addition, there is also the problem of higher level people picking on or “griefing” lower levels. The upcoming MMORPG, Scarlet Legacy (closed beta to be launched on August 4, 2011) has issued this press release that details some of the measure the game developers have taken to make the PvP and PvE battles with friends or allies in the game more fun.

At level 30, players can enter into a Master and Apprentice relationship.  This is a great way to introduce your friends to the game regardless of the level difference – if the master is online while the student is playing, the student will gain bonus experience.  This boon scales up the higher level the Master is, so seeking a seasoned veteran is very important!  In exchange for their advanced knowledge, each time the Apprentice gains a level his or her Master gains currency to spend in the games item shops and item mall; they will also receive additional bonuses if their Apprentice tries out the cash shop for themselves.

Players who have taken an oath together with this system share a number of benefits including shared foe and blacklists for in-game PvP and PvE systems, as well as special abilities such as instant teleportation to one another, and other in-game perks

This is a good way to let older players help newcomers to the game while giving both of them some valuable rewards.

Here is a complete list of MMORPGs that encourage and support PvP combat.

ARGO Online News: Great Field War This Weekend

ARGO Online’s battlefields will be crowded this weekend as the Shining Desert, a vast and sandy expanse which lies at the heart of ARGO Online, will play host to the steampunk-fantasy MMORPG’s first official “Great Field War” this Saturday, July 16, at 9 pm PST.

Field Wars are a new update. During these daily events, players from both the Floresslah and Noblian factions will battle for control of the rare and valuable mineral Earthdium. Players from each faction must coordinate their assault to try to destroy the enemy faction’s mine. The winners will then enjoy access to the bountiful Earthdium deposits at the core of the desert as the spoils of war, while the losers wait in shame for an opportunity to try again.

For this special Great Field War event, players will not only be able to participate in the brutal battle for access to the best Earthdium mining in the game, they’ll also be entered for a chance to win a unique item that cannot be found anywhere else in ARGO Online. Winners will be selected randomly from the participating players, so be ready for a serious fight this weekend if you want a shot at the prize!

ARGO Online has been named one of the Top 5 MMORPGs of 2011 by MMO Worlds.

Big Update for Maplestory!

Wheee! It’s a good day for Maplestory players ecause a great new update has just been released. It’s also a good time for old players who quit to try it out again and see if they like it again because everyone loves free MMORPG games like Maplestory.

MapleStory’s Chaos update begins: Age of Heroes update now live

A wave of pandemonium has hit Maple World as the Age of Heroes storms MapleStory. The Age of Heroes is the first in the Chaos series of summer content updates for the 2-D side-scrolling MMORPG from Nexon.

Players will now be able to party up and explore the Gate to the Future and its surrounding ruins, which contain mutated versions of low level monsters that may be familiar to veteran fans. These mutants however are much more powerful than their counterparts and will prove to be quite the challenge. Additionally, players can explore the Knight Stronghold, which is filled with enemies with the same skills and abilities as the Cygnus Knight character class. Players can now battle their way through the Henesys Ruins and the Knight Stronghold to investigate the corruption of Empress Cygnus and her knights, which will ultimately prove to be the most formidable challenge in the entire game.

Players will also experience a complete hero class rebalancing coming to MapleStory as a part of the Age of Heroes. Restrictions for creating Dual Blade, Aran and Evan classes will be lifted, and these classes will have various new skills added and return as completely revamped characters. Even further, the Cygnus and Resistance classes will return with a more balanced skill set But Maple World must beware: in the wake of new alliances forged, players should be on the lookout for new class relationships as old friends can just as quickly become bitter enemies.

The Age of Artisans is the next major update taking shape for Maple World, which brings an entirely new weapon and item crafting system to MapleStory. Starting July 11, players will be able to use the Smithing technique to create armor and weapons, Alchemy to craft potions and pills, or Accessory Crafting to make belts, rings and more.  In addition, a personality trait system will be added through the Age of Artisans, which gives players a chance to define their characters even further by strengthening traits like Ambition, Willpower and Diligence. Each personality characteristic provides a distinct aid throughout quests or battles.

If that doesn’t float your boat then you can try something different like out list of free games like the Sims or MMORPG games like WoW.

Classic Fairy Tale MMO – Under Developement Upcoming MMO

An upcoming MMORPG that is still under development has released this new trailer. From the Dream Drops press release:

In Dream Drops, classic fairy tales are altered and well-known characters are transformed. Inspired by beloved European fairy tales, Dream Drops offers a new spin on these classic stories, settings and characters. In this new fairy tale world, Snow White’s sweet innocence is only skin-deep; the Queen of Hearts isn’t quite so cruel and arrogant, and the not-so-timid Pinocchio is steadily growing more and more powerful! The perverse personalities of these familiar fairy tale characters, together with their new, surprising abilities, will amaze.

In a parallel world live the characters from fairy tales: enchanted creatures, princes and princesses, witches, wizards, and more. In this world, time is a precious resource. People who can control time and travel to different places are called Sleepwalkers. Able to freely travel to and from various story settings, they spend their time embarking on different adventures. However, in order to escape the real world and enter a new time and space, one must pass through the deepest and darkest of dreams. This is why Sleepwalkers call their destination After Dreams. In this seemingly pleasant world of, danger is ever present.

I’m a sucker for cute MMORPGs! No link because the game is not yet out but keep an eye out for this new upcoming MMORPG.

Runes of Magic is Totally Awesome!

Just how successful and awesome is the free MMORPG Runes of Magic? According to the official game statistics, it’s super awesome!

  • 6,667,370 characters have been created
  • a total of 3,505,269 quests have been completed
  • 4,622 guilds have been created
  • 36,681,098 monsters have been slain

That’s a how much gamers love Runes of Magic. For more information about Runes of Magic and to play it for free visit this website: http://mmo-worlds.info/runesofmagic

For two years players have been wandering the lands of Taborea, the world of Runes of Magic. Millions of characters have been created, thousands of quests have been completed, and scores of professions have been learnt. Reason enough to take a look at the statistics. Which profession is the most popular? Which pet are players clamouring after? Our statistics have the answer.

In the past two years, 6,667,370 characters have been created. Of which 2.2 million are mages, nearly 650,000 are rogues, and just as many warriors. An especially popular class combo in the dual class system is the priest/mage combination. There are clear favourites in the choice of secondary classes as well: with 350,000 players, the priest is the secondary class of choice, while the warrior has won over around 150,000 players. Out of all these players, 3,3 million have chosen herbalism as their farming profession, whereas the crafting profession, Alchemy, has attracted 1.1 million players. To keep them entertained along the way, more than 100,000 players have chosen the Rune Pet as their favourite in-game companion.

But what would a true MMORPG be without instances and bosses? This is where the Demon Lord comes into the picture. He’s been taken down 4,521 times. But there are also many other fearsome bosses to conquer such as maxim Erekat III, the endboss of the Dungeon of Dalanis, who has been defeated almost three times as often as the Demon Lord. Bringing down Raksha has also proved to be a tricky assignment, until now, he’s only been vanquished 182 times on the games highest difficulty setting.

The English speaking servers have seen the biggest bloodbath of all. A total of 3,505,269 quests have been completed, 4,622 guilds have been created, and wait for it, 36,681,098 monsters have been slain by Anglo speaking warriors everywhere. And still the monsters come back for more.
