Masters of the Arena - PvP Character Balancing

16. September

It’s here Elpeeps! Become a Master of the Arena in PvP Season 3. This update is pretty darn huge with a massive overhaul of all classes and characters can easily fill a college textbook! But we will give you the main gist with some visual examples from a few of the characters!!



But for all the nitty gritty details check out the microsite:
http://en.elswordonline.com/masters-of-the-arena/

Full Character Balancing
To help improve gameplay experience all characters will receive improvement in all aspects of combat, which can be broken down into 3 sections (Combos, Actives and Special Actives). Of course there is so much more to this update as you all will see.

Improvements to Combos
Comboing can be tricky but with S3 improvements you’ll see that combo changes become easier to perform and more useful. Interlinking combos becomes more streamlined. For example, Raven’s Reckless Fist combo (>>^ZXX) doesn’t launch enemies into the air but shoves them back a little which makes continue a second combo sequence that much easier to perform.



And for more visual aesthetics, Aisha’s Void Princess loveable bat Angkor makes an appearance in her (>ZXX) which also gives you an added Dark Ball at the final X making it easier to Catch opponents.

Improvements to Actives
Actives become multifunctional and versatile. For example, Siege’s missiles pierces once but it’s possible to hit the same enemy twice for double damage. It has increased range and damage over the old Siege Shelling and has all of the properties of a projectile like not needing to be in range of a target to fire off shots.



Special Actives
There are quite a few special actives that receive improvements. But I would like to cover one purely based on favoritism and that is Code Empress. Oberon and Ophelia are Eve’s servants and she summons them in her actives and special actives. Once you summon they attack and leave. This time they stick around longer when performing Surface Cutting and Electronic Field and will fight for their beloved queen for over 10 seconds.



Item Mall Goodies

This week’s ItemMall Update is pretty awesome… New costumes, new mounts and new accessories! Track down evil doers in style with the new Devil Hunter Costumes.



Our newest mount is the Sacred Fox Mount! It looks especially great for Ara. Flame attacks and foxiness is freakin’ awesome.



Be a spectacle in these fabulous spectacles!! Stay nerdy with new eyewear.

Don't let my time spent on this game fool you. I've been on board since Raven's release and it's been quite a roller coaster in terms of my opinion of this game up until now.

Elsword is a great game, don't get me wrong. The mechanics are solid, I haven't run into many glitches, and the general feeling of the game when playing is unique. Being a 2D fighting game, scrolling is to expected when it comes to dungeons. Elsword does it very well. Each dungeon has its own theme and get more fun as the game progresses. With the addition of fields, players have an alternative to obtaining EXP. PvP itself also rewards players with EXP, but in much smaller doses. Skills are flashy, each playable character feels unique, and overall, the game is pretty easy to pick up.

However, some key things set this game back two steps whenever it advances one. Mechanics are solid but latency issues and ping play a large factor in being able to PvP well. More often than not, I find myself dying to lag than skill, even when the other person is better anyway. I've won my share of lag matches, and I always feel bad when a genuinely good player gets beaten because of the awkward connection. Dungeons rehash a lot of the mobs. Certain effects can bolster and change a mob, but for the most part, it just takes more time to kill it. Speaking of which, every dungeon's boss save for the secret dungeons' are extremely easy to kill. It takes two to four 200-300mp skills to down most of the bosses. Some dungeons are too long, especially toward levels 30-40, and feel as though they are just intended to burn precious stamina. Killing mobs in fields also costs stamina, but that was very minor in my opinion. The PvP matchup system runs by what seems to be just ranks. This can cause a lot of problems as some high level players who have already attained high ranks lose matches on purpose and "derank" in order to climb back up and farm for AP, which is currency only obtained through PvP. Skills themselves are not a problem, but more often than not, I find myself using little to no skills on the trash mobs throughout the dungeon. Leveling up in general to get more skills is a pain, especially that dreaded moment when the next quest is level locked and grinding is the only option. Grinding itself isn't that hard, but the community is not very friendly to grinders. The community itself is mediocre. Rudeness and trolls are abound in PvP, loners and the occassional leech can be found in PvE. Another non-game related problem besides the community is the economy. Massive prices, ED being extremely worthless, buying one's way to win through the cash shop etc. The cash shop itself is Pay2Win, and even though it's possible to overcome that (skill notebook, bank perks), it's extremely inconvinient and requires tons more effort. Some features that give the game a very different feel and the player a much easier time are locked down permanently without cash (skill slot B, pets).

Of course Elsword is a good GAME. That's about all it has going for it. Everything that contributes to the game other than the actual mechanics kind of break it. If you can put up with all that as long as I have, then kudos. Elsword is enjoyable, but only so much so.

OVERVIEW

Elsword is a 2.5D MMORPG and is developed & published by KOG Studios. These company were known for making a really great 2D MMORPG called Grand Chase. This game is basically a spiritual successor to Grand Chase. Despite this game being received critically acclaim by both critics & users,the game suffer from repetitive gameplay and incoherent decisions that the developer made lately such as dungeon no longer drop skill notes and you are force to spend real money to buy it. However does that mean you should avoid this game at all cost ? Not really because this game has it own unique charm put into it. The server is heavily populated ever since the released of Add.

GAMEPLAY : 7/10

When you start off the game. Instead of being able to create your own character,you are given to choose a gender class locked character. While this might be a downside for some people,each of this character have a unique background story and different fighthing style.

Tutorial doesn't explain much about the game so you left wondering what you must do.

There is two ways you can level up,either by training in field or by playing dungeon with a bunch of random people.

Level progression is balanced ( you gain don't level extremely fast and slow at the same times ) but skills progression is extremely linear.

Tree skills only offer 2 different sets of skills and optional skills for you to choose,once you choose one,you cannot choose the others unless by using skills resets.

Another downside would be you only can assign 4 skills & 3 items slots so if you want to expand them then you need to buy using real cash in the item mall.

Quest can be extremely repetitive at times since it required you to play the same dungeon 3-5 times in order to progress to the next one.

Another problem would be the stamina bar. If you stamina bar reach zero,you couldn't get any experience points killing monster or completing dungeons. I don't understand why the developer think would be a great idea to implement a facebook like game stamina feature. You only get unlimited stamina during Friday-Sunday.

In-game money is not difficult to earn considering the item drop rate is quite high and you able to sell off you items in market too ( you don't need to use real cash to set up your own market ).

GRAPHICS : 9/10

By far one of the best 2.5D MMO graphics i seen so far.

The gorgeous artstyle and colorful visual impressed me a lot. Both the character and the monster design look pretty appealing.

One minor issue i have is that there is seem to be a lot of clipping issue when you fully equip your character with rediculous gear especially when two people stand together at the same area.

Different segment of area have different looks on them so you won't have to see the same repeatable background.

The interface is quite ok i would say while at the same time it a clutter mess and you can't customize it.

AUDIO : 9/10

Wide variety of soundtrack you going to listen as you progress far into the game. A lot of them sound like it comes from the Tales series game which had outstanding soundtrack.

All the characters in the game have Korean voice ( only when you initiate a skill they will speak in English ) and they are all well done ( some of the voice suite very well to all the playable characters ).

Some of the sound effects sometimes acts weird if you heard multiple critical strike.

Nevertheless i don't have much problem with the sound effects.

LONG-LASTING APPEAL : 7/10

For a 2.5D games,it provide sufficient fun for you to keep playing.

There is PvE,PvP,marriage,guild system as well as raid boss. Even though you level your character to max level,you can still choose to play other characters to test his/her ability & playstyle.

There is a new event every 2-4 weeks depending on how the current event last.

FINAL VERDICT : 8/10

While the gameplay fall short and there is many restriction within the game,i say give it a shot just to try out the gameplay mechanics considering it rare to find a 2.5D MMO games.

It add a ton of fun if you could introduced a friends to join with you in playing this game.

It pretty addictive once you get used to the combat mechanic since it fast paced and well executed.

Oh and the player base of this game is pretty strong especially during weekend.

If you wondering if the game is pay 2 win,it actaully not. Only pay 2 win aspect i see is the additional skill & items slots you have to purchase but that is a minor issue and it optional.

Just stay away from PvP and focus entirely on it PvE. From there you gonna have a lot of fun in this game.

GRADE : B ( Great )

Von meiner Seite her merkwürdig zu einem Spiel wie Elsword ein Review zu schreiben, da ich meistens einen großen Bogen um RPG, insbesondere wenn es sich dann auch noch um MMORPGs handelt. Jedoch stach das Spiel ein wenig hervor aus meiner Liste und daher habe ich heute mir die Zeit genommen zu Elsword ein Review zu schreiben. Dann mal los:

Geschichte
Ich habe wirklich schlechte Erfahrungen was die zwei Dinge "Geschichte" und "RPGs" im Zusammenhang angeht, zumindest ist die Geschichte - oder besser gesagt, die Geschichten, weil ja jede Klasse seinen eigenen Weg geht - einigermaßen in Ordnung. So viel was ich dazu sagen kann ist das die Wege der jeweiligen Klassen sich kreuzen. Es spielt sich in einem Ort zu namens Elios, einem ehemaligen Kontinent der vor hunderten vor Jahren zersplittert wurde. Die Nasod, eine Roboterrasse, die lebendig gemacht wurden, wurden von den Menschen als Sklaven benutzt um niedrige Arbeit zu verrichten. Jedoch wurden sie während eines verheerenden Krieges verändert, sie fingen an ihren eigenen Willen zu entwickeln und haben sich selbstständig gemacht. Und seitdem ist jeder Ort auf sich selber gestellt, der einst große Kontinent "Das von Gott verlassene Land" zerbrach.

Klassen
Im Moment, jedenfalls gehe ich davon aus, gibt es sieben Klassen, die dann wiederrum drei verschiedene Berufe haben. Natürlich unterscheidet sich der Kampfstil und das Skillsystem von Beruf zu Beruf. Und diese Skills sind dann in PvP, also Player vs Player und PvE, Player vs Environment, also Spieler gegen Umgebung, unterteilt; manche Skills sind ausschließlich für den PvP Modus gedacht, während man mit den PvE Skills gezielter leveln kann und mit diesen besser durchkommt. Jedenfalls, zu den Klassen: Wir hätten Elsword, der mit einem Schwert kämpft JA, SEHR INNOVATIVER NAME , Aisha, die Magierklasse, dann Rena, die Bogenschützin, Raven, der mit einer Kralle und einer Art Klinge kämpft, Eve, die mit Nasod Robotern kämpft, Chung, der mit einer Art Kanone angreift und die neueste Klasse Ara, die mit einem Speer attackiert. Im Großen und Ganzen: Ein reiches Angebot an Klassen und Berufen, die man da auswählen kann.

Kampfsystem
Wie schon genannt, gibt es ein PvP System, womit man wertvollere Items wie Upgrade-Steine oder Ausrüstungsteile erhält. Außerdem gibt es ein Rang-System von F - SS, es sollte sich von selbst erklären, nach welchem Schema dieses Rang-System funktioniert. Ansonsten zum PvE; das Leveln findet großteils innerhalb in Dungeons statt. Seit einem großen Patch kann man auch in Open World leveln, was dann wiederrum kein Wille verbrau-- moment ja, das Willenssystem! Darauf bin ich noch garnicht eingegangen. In Elsword hat man eine begrenzten Vorrat an Wille, die Einheit womit man in Dungeons leveln kann. Wenn der Wille auf 0% gelangt ist, kann man an diesem Tag keine Dungeons mehr betreten, jedenfalls so lange nicht bis zum nächsten Tag um 6:00 Uhr früh. Man kann allerdings mit sogenannten Willenstränken den Willen vollständig wieder füllen um länger an einem Tag trainieren zu können. Und jetzt noch letztlich zum eigentlichen Punkt, dem Kampfsystem; das Spiel benutzt ein Kombo-System, wie man es in Beat 'em Up's kennt, und je höher die Combo, desto besser wirkt sich das auf die Punktzahl, die dann der Exp gutgeschrieben wird. Die Kombos werden mit den Pfeiltasten und den Tasten X und C (Standardbelegung) ausgeführt. Dabei gibt es viele unterschiedliche Kombinationen wie Pfeiltaste rechts + X oder Pfeiltaste links, dann oben + C.

Grafik
Das Spiel läuft auf 2.5D, also es ist 3D in 2D-Ansicht. Die Proträit-Bilder und die Combo-Bilder sind im Anime-Stil gehalten, was dem Touch von Korea verleiht. Aber gut, das Spiel stammt auch aus Korea.. bitte, vergesst einfach diese Zeile, danke.

Cash-System
Das Spiel bietet ein eigenes Cash-System an, wo man Charaktere gegen Zahlung von Echtgeld umkleiden kann. Diese machen einzeln nur einen optischen Unterschied, können aber als "Set" zusätzliche Effekte mitbringen. Nebenbei gibt es auch Items, die zum "Öffnen" anderer In-Game-Items notwendig sind oder Skillslots, womit man mehr Skills mit im Dungeon mitnehmen kann. Bevor dies jetzt sich wie ein Pay2Win-Spiel anhören soll, kann ich euch versichern: Sofern ihr nicht darauf auf seid, das Speil sehr intensiv zu spielen, kann man auf diese Items verzichten und trotzdem ziemlich weit kommen.

Eigene Meinung
Ich muss zugeben, das Spiel habe ich anfangs verhasst, allerdings aus eher persönlicheren Gründen. Als ich es doch mal angefangen habe, habe ich es nicht so schlecht gefunden, allerdings hat es wie jedes andere MMORPG das selbe Problem: es kann nicht langhaltig einen fesseln wirklich zu spielen. Das Spiel ist von der Schwierigkeit her, das Maximallevel von Level 66 zu erreichen, vernünftig. Man ist also mehr als genug mit dem Spiel beschäftigt. Sofern man sich nicht im Spiel selber zurecht findet, sollte man allgemein kein MMORPG anfangen. Dann wird man meist nur enttäuscht sein. Bei Elsword wäre dies nicht anders. Vom Kombo-System ist es nicht so schlecht und auf jeden Fall innovativ. Die Grafik sagt mir leider garnicht zu, ich finde die sehr unscharfen und kantigen 3D-Modelle nicht sonderlich schön. Aber da sollte sich jeder selber ein eigenes Review Bild daraus machen. Das Cash-System ist recht fair, jedenfalls verhältnismäßig fairer als andere MMO's.

Fazit
Mal abgesehen vom Kombo-System ein anderes MMORPG, was man nicht als Gelegenheitsspiel angehen soll. Weil sich dieses Genre schlichtwegs nicht eignet. Empfehlenswert? Ja, würde ich schon sagen.
