    The Elder Scrolls Online plans 4v4 arenas, veteran rewards

    Filed under: Fantasy, Business Models, Classes, Game Mechanics, Patches, Previews, News Items, PvE, Dev Diaries, Dungeons, The Elder Scrolls Online, Subscription In a fresh entry on The Elder Scrolls Online's official site, Game Director Matt Firor has penned the latest Road Ahead update, in which he discusses the game's recent patch as well as what's in store for players next month. Of note, Firor says ZeniMax aims to make combat "more responsive," push out new Craglorn content, complete the last trial in the constellation storyline, and introduce a new 4v4 PvE arena. Work on the champion system, which revamps the MMO's character development and customization mechanics, continues; in fact, ZeniMax implores players to help test the inbound content on the public test server. The team plans to formally announce a loyalty program later this week; it's expected to dole out traditional MMO veteran rewards like minipets.The Elder Scrolls Online plans 4v4 arenas, veteran rewards originally appeared on Massively on Wed, 20 Aug 2014 20:30:00 EST.

    Guild Wars 2 retools commander icons, fees

    Filed under: Fantasy, Game Mechanics, Patches, PvP, News Items, PvE, Guild Wars 2, Buy-to-PlayAs Massively's Anatoli Ingram discussed in his Flameseeker Chronicles column yesterday, Guild Wars 2's September feature pack will include significant changes to the commander system that marks player volunteers as leaders on various world maps. After the patch, commander tags will become account-bound rather than character-bound, meaning your newbie Asura can strut around Metrica Province as if she owns the place. Consequently, tags will triple in price to 300 gold. Players will also be able to customize their icons with spiffy new colors intended to "facilitate a range of tactical uses" like organizing groups in PvE and PvP. Already a commander? Lucky you: ArenaNet says you'll be grandfathered into the new system for no extra fee. The studio plans to consider "possibilities for recognizing experienced and prestigious commanders" in the future.Guild Wars 2 retools commander icons, fees originally appeared on Massively on Wed, 20 Aug 2014 17:30:00 EST.

    Guild Wars 2 plans siege additions for world-vs.-world PvP

    Filed under: Fantasy, Events (In-Game), Game Mechanics, PvP, News Items, Guild Wars 2, Dev Diaries, Buy-to-Play As part of its September feature pack rollout, ArenaNet has today discussed the world-vs.-world improvements coming to Guild Wars 2 next month. Specifically, the team is adding a new Siege Golem Mastery ability line, which renders your character "an unstoppable juggernaut of destruction" with super speed, AoE healing effects, and (of course) an ejection seat to amuse your guildies. ArenaNet will also add consumable tricks; the first, called a Siege Disabler, is deployed like a grenade and disables weapons and golems and can be purchased with badges and coins rather than karma. If you aren't into the PvP additions, well, you could always join the folks in Rata Sum protesting the absence of Super Adventure Box.

    Flameseeker Chronicles: Taking command in Guild Wars 2

    Filed under: Fantasy, Lore, Patches, Opinion, Guild Wars 2, Flameseeker Chronicles, Buy-to-Play Last week, ArenaNet wrapped up Guild Wars 2's two-parter story arc, The Dragon's Reach. It's a doozy, especially since part one of the chapter was, in my opinion, the weakest of the living world story's second season so far. It wasn't bad, mind you; it just didn't leave me staring at my calendar in thwarted anticipation the way previous installments did. Part two brings that feeling back, which is almost too bad since we're going to be waiting until autumn for the story to start up again. In the meantime, we've got a bunch of stuff to talk about, so jump past the cut -- but only if you're cool with spoilers for pretty much everything.Continue reading Flameseeker Chronicles: Taking command in Guild Wars 2Flameseeker Chronicles: Taking command in Guild Wars 2 originally appeared on Massively on Tue, 19 Aug 2014 12:00:00 EST.

    Elder Scrolls Online: Update 4 Focuses On Group Content & Community Feedback

    If The Elder Scrolls Online's last update was focused largely upon guilds, the recent peek at update four looks to focus squarely on groups. The preview focused on such central features as Upper Craglorn, new quests, the new Serpent trial, Sanctum Ophidia, and their various modes. Still, for those hoping for more group content, both Gamescom, where ZeniMax continued to bring out competitive 3v3 modes, and the preview of the coming update should have made for a satisfying week.

    How your Guild Wars 2 class will change in September

    Filed under: Fantasy, Classes, Patches, Previews, Guild Wars 2, Dev Diaries, Buy-to-Play When Guild Wars 2's second feature pack crashes down on our heads next month, there will be none of us unscathed from its impact. A new dev diary posted today reveals that the feature pack will contain balance changes for all of the game's classes. Among the changes are a rework of Elementalist and Thief grandmaster traits, love for Engineer kits and elixirs, an improved Spirit Bow ability for the Guardian, a revamp of the mimic skill for the Mesmer, improved survivability for the Necromancer, more flexible pet choices for the Ranger, and tweaks to the Warrior's adrenaline resource. Overall, it all sounds pretty positive, although there could be a nerf or two lurking in the mix.How your Guild Wars 2 class will change in September originally appeared on Massively on Mon, 18 Aug 2014 15:00:00 EST.

    Tamriel Infinium: The sweet and sour of Elder Scrolls' new dye system

    Filed under: Fantasy, Culture, Game Mechanics, MMO Industry, Opinion, Crafting, The Elder Scrolls Online, Subscription, Tamriel Infinium So, armor dyes! Elder Scrolls Online now has them. They're pretty slick, too, and they add quite a bit of personality and personalization options to my Tamrielian alter-ego. The dye process is straightforward. In fact, the hardest thing about it is finding a dye station, which isn't very hard at all. You'll need to travel to a town or a major city and look for the alchemy vendor on your map. The dye station, a workbench surrounded by barrels full of color, is typically located either inside the alchemy shop or very near it in the town proper.Continue reading Tamriel Infinium: The sweet and sour of Elder Scrolls' new dye systemTamriel Infinium: The sweet and sour of Elder Scrolls' new dye system originally appeared on Massively on Fri, 15 Aug 2014 12:00:00 EST.

    Guild Wars 2 will let you replace PvP opponents with standardized clones

    Filed under: Fantasy, Patches, Previews, PvP, Guild Wars 2, Buy-to-Play How you look and move in PvP is sometimes more important than just for cosmetic vanity, which is why Guild Wars 2 is planning to add "model standardization" as an option with the September feature pack. In today's dev diary, ArenaNet explains that since all of the races and classes have different animations for the same skills, it might be difficult for competitive players to identify what's coming at them. By being able to replace all enemy characters with standardized human models, PvPers will be able to clearly identify the class, weapon, and skill animations being used. The team's also finishing up work on two new sets of PvP-exclusive armor that draws inspiration from Guild Wars 1's Hall of Heroes. Players can earn one of those sets of armor by progressing with the new PvP reward track that's also slated for the feature pack update.Guild Wars 2 will let you replace PvP opponents with standardized clones originally appeared on Massively on Thu, 14 Aug 2014 17:00:00 EST.

"You can look forward to the return of Season 2 in autumn, and we'll announce the start date for episode 5 after the feature pack has been released."

Then, create your own fictional entry of 500 words or less that tells us more about the scene. You can write a short story, a journal entry, or any other kind of fictional text that sheds more light on what happened to cause this grim tableau.

However, there are aspects in ESO's PvP that have me questioning their design idea. In this week's column I want to address some of them and provide my ideas as to what would make ESO an even better experience for players.
