    Default PvP: Challenge Other Players!

    PvP can be a lot of fun with friends and guildies, but sometimes you just want to pick a fight with a complete stranger one-on-one, without interference. We're pleased to introduce in Mod 9: the challenge system!

    Rather than convincing your foe to run all the way to a PvP tavern to duke it out, you can now just select the player directly, and on your inspect orb, click the "challenge" symbol. This will allow you and your enemy to be transported to a PvP arena of your choice from anywhere in the game!

    To begin your duel, you must specify the terms of your battle. Select from:
    • Game type (death match, capture the flag)
    • The Arena (select an arena or chose random)
    • Time limit (a range of minutes up to a full hour, or random)


    Similar to a trade window, both parties must agree for the match to begin, and you can see the status of whether or not the other person has accepted yet or not. Your opponent is presented your terms, and given the chance to negotiate any changes they'd want to make to the duel. A text field is also available for you to privately chat/negotiate in the Challenge window with your opponent prior to the start of the match. Once you and your opponent agree to the terms, you will be transported automatically into the arena after a 5 second count down.

    Remember that in Mod 9, general chat spans across any instance, so if you were standing in the Marketplace when you entered the arena, your general chat will still be seen in the Market. If you have something to say to your PvP opponents that you don't want everyone to hear, you're best to use /say or /tell.

    You don’t have to just duel though, you can challenge in groups as well! You can fight in combinations of 1 vs 6, 3 vs 3, or any other group configuration you want. Gather your forces together into a group, and your opponents must do likewise. So if your group of 3 would like to fight those two guys in a group by the mailbox, set up your challenge and it will present it to them! You can see the status of who all of the two teams has accepted the challenge, and who's acceptance is still pending. Remember that you need to be in separate parties to use the challenge system. If you need to communicate between the two rival teams prior to the match, you can use the text field in the challenge window before everyone is transported into the match.

    If you'd like to have a match up with other random players, Jackson Laws is still available in the PvP taverns, and the open-brawl Tavern pits are still available at the Phoenix, Hammersmith, Wayward Lobster, and Open Palm.

    In addition to the normal death-match arena, a new Shavarath themed death-match arena has been added! Filled with traps and things to avoid bumping into, it can really add a whole new level of difficulty for your duel as you try not to be done in by your enemy AND your environment!

    If you're not in the mood to accept Challenges, you can turn on/off challenge acceptances in your options panel at any time! Otherwise, you can leave it on and see who picks a fight as you're making your way around the various public spaces!

    So the next time you're milling around the Harbor or Meridia, and you have a hankering for some PvP, challenge a friend or a stranger to PvP on the spot using the Challenge system!

    I can't wait for people run though the harbor with n00bs spamming challenges... or conversely, to spam plat spammers with challenges in hopes of their scripts clicking yes for them...

    I was sitting here quietly grumbling about PvP junk - but this one thought has turned it all around. It'll never work that way, but the thought is truly amusing.

    Hmmm, 10 paragraphs for 1% of the community, that's nice.

    Sorry, just not my thing. Actually this is kind of depressing to be honest.

    The addition of general tab spam...err....spanning across all instances is not the greatest idea either.

    it adds flavor to the game

    it's like housing, crafting, etc., it fleshes out the game world. not everyone does it but different strokes

    agreed not everyone will do it, but it opens up the game a bit to those that do, and anything that opens up the game to a wider audience is a good thing. Like I said in my previous post the next step for this would be to open it up for spectators, and allow betting

    Unless of course new players coming in like that sort of option.

    It's rather difficult to know what new players are looking for I imagine, so my guess is Turbine is just deciding to add some features that exist in some other (more popular) MMOs.

    While I agree with the sentiment, if you're going to copy/paste yourself over and over, please use the word "waste". You don't want to see the imagery that line is causing me to see.

    What a waste of time. Yours and mine. There are a bunch of things dev time could be more useful doing. If it wasn't for the opt out button, there could have been a problem.

    Thank you for the news, but PvP? Great. Joy. Now I am going to be annoyed by people with the stupid challenge system.

    As Jrp said- I'd rather have more quests.
