Hello guys, I hope y'all are having a blast!
IT'S HERE!

As we'll have been informed the PVP Ranking Ladder is here! The purpose of this thread is to announce that to give you
guys the best of all experience you can get, the 3 minutes mini-games (this including the map rotation) we had on plans are not coming out in January 28th patch because we need to refine some inconsistencies found in the system.

That being said... we care so much about your opinion, for that reason we'd like to ask you guys to report any inconsistencies, bugs, gaps, etc.
This will help us find out about what things to fix a faster pace because we have more than just a few points of view, we have yours which is the most important to us.

Ranked PVP rules and mechanics are posted here.

Mass Refining

Ralph, the Mass Refiner NPC is here!
You've got a batch of items to be refined? Well... there's no need to go through the painful process of 1-by-1 refining anymore!
You can find this NPC in [ @warp amatsu 210 136 ]


Coming Soon...

Even though we are still working in completing the PvP Ladder (mini-game bonus) we don't stop working. We're also giving finishing touches to the GvG Ranking Ladder which will also be released next!


:thinking:Questions?:thinking:
Let us know below what your concerns, questions and uncertainties might be and we'll provide you with some insight. Asking publicly might answer someone else's questions too, don't be shy!

Stick around for latest updates and upcoming events!
Tell your friends and bring them all aboard!

Hi guys,

Please give me an opportunity to shoutout to players who gave some initial feedback for this feature. As stated before, future development still in progress.

Thanks!

How does the rating works?
The rank 20 k/d is better than rank 19 and etc
But the rating of 19 is better than rank 20.
How did that happen?

The PvP Ladder is not based on kills/deaths ration only... its point system is designed in a way that will prevent cheating.
Example: If you kill the same player 2 times in a row you will still earn points but with a deduction penalty which means you will gain less points than usual per kill on that same player.

Also the points you earn are based on your rating.

Example: Take Player A (4000 rating) vs Player B (3000 Rating)
  • If Player A kills Player B, since there's a 1000 rating difference Player A gains +2 rating while Player B loses -1
  • If Player B kills Player A, since there's a 1000 rating difference Player B gains +12 rating while Player B loses -14

The lower the difference between the player's rating the more points they gain/less points they lose. Meaning the higher rank you're the harder it's to gain points unless you kill players on your same rating range. This maintains players with a high rank aware of their position and gives a fair reward to low rating players for killing high rating players as well as prevents players from boosting in any effective way.

To answer your question... having a lot of kills and killing the same player over and over or killing players with much lower rating won't rank you as quickly as killing people in your rating range or higher. This is all anti-cheat and balanced measurements.

@Pixellius
Cases like that one may have been caused by the following scenarios:
  1. Tried to boost.
  2. Killed the same player multiple times.
  3. Killed players with lower rating, while people that killed him had even lower rating which means he was getting kills of lesser value that the deaths.
I'm not implying anything or assuming what the reason for this is, I'm just pointing out possible scenarios.
