Battle Requirements is a new sort of placeable that we consider a lot of you are going to appreciate. Due to the fact Early Access we’ve had players ask us for strategies to establish certain regions as PvP zones, especially so they can set up arenas for dueling and gladiatorial combat on servers not especially devoted to PvP.
Battle Requirements will do precisely that.
The Battle Common is a tall, placeable flag with two crossed swords on the front. It is intention is to establish a PvP “Zone” in an location about it. The intended functionality is to enable players to initial construct an arena structure and then establish the PvP Zone with the cunning use of a flag.
We’ve implemented numerous added specific functions and guidelines to the battle common in order to avert griefing and exploiting:
- After crafted and placed, it can not take harm
- After placed it will avert putting down other structures inside the PvP location (so make positive you have completed your arena just before plonking down the flag)
- The Battle Common does not have land-claim, and also ignores land-claim when placed
- It makes use of exclusive placement guidelines to avert numerous arenas becoming placed as well close to each and every other.
- PvP combat inside the Battle Standard’s location of influence is absolutely optional, so persons can not trick you into PvP combat when you do not want to.
How it performs:
In an location about the Battle Common, PvP is permitted, even outdoors regular PvP limits. When you enter the location you will get a warning message on the screen asking if you want to allow PvP combat. This message will only seem if you are not eligible for PvP, e.g. if you are on a PvE server or outdoors PvP combat hours on a PvP server.
The warning message will give you the choice to opt in, opt out, often opt in, or often opt out.
- Opting in tends to make you quickly eligible for PvP combat whilst inside the Battle Standard’s location of impact. Leaving the location will turn off PvP combat.
- If you opt out you can stroll about in the Battle Standard’s zone of influence, but devoid of becoming eligible for PvP combat
- Picking to often opt in does not turn off PvP combat when you have left the location.
- Picking to often opt out will opt out of all Battle Requirements for that session.
Battle Common alternatives will be saved on a per-session basis. Logging out, then back in, will reset what ever decision you produced just before you logged out.
Dying in the arena does not drop any loot. The exception to this is if the server currently has the choice to drop loot enabled. Then loot will drop as regular.
