Postby Gillian » Wed Jul 20, 2011 8:43 am

Nexon has finally released Player VS Player in Maplestory (pvp)

Here's an update from Nexon:

Battle Mode

Requirements: Lv.30 or higher
* Battle Mode takes place through Battle Square. Talk to Maximus to get there. He is in most towns.
* Talk to Crawson in Battle Square to compete in Battle Mode.
* Fight fellow Maplers in Battle Mode to earn EXP, Battle Points, and bragging rights.
* Battle Mode is all Player vs. Player combat, in which you directly attack other Maplers during a battle - a brand new experience for MapleStory!
* In Battle Mode, game rules, stats, and skills are modified to create a more fair playing field.
* Fame cannot be altered while in Battle Square.
* The Character Info window cannot be opened while in Battle Mode.
* There are four tiers of competition based your character's level.

League

There are two modes available:
- Free-For-All: Everyone battles each other, with unlimited lives during the battle. Time Limit: 10 minutes - Minimum Players: 4, Maximum Players: 8
- Team Match: Two groups battle each other, with unlimited lives during the battle. Time Limit: 10 minutes - Minimum Players: 6, Maximum Players: 12
You cannot enter Free-For-All while in a party.

Battle Mode Gameplay
* Battles begin after the minimum number of participants has entered the map.
* To leave a battle map before a battle is over, click the Leave Room button that is located where the Cash Shop button normally is at the bottom of the screen.
* There are objects that may help or harm you in some of the battle maps.
* Different effects will appear depending on the damage.
* When your HP reaches 0, you will revive in the safe area and start the battle again after three seconds.
* You are restricted from using regular potions and other items in your inventory while in battle maps.
* Unique items regularly spawn in battle maps. Picking them up immediately uses them. There are lots of different items; most help you, but some can hinder you.
* Be careful of the Random Boxes, with the question marks on them. They can temporarily double the scores you earn, grant invincibility, transform you into a monster, or lower your HP or MP.

Champion and Rage

- A star will appear on top of the character's head if chosen. If he can survive for a minute, he can get extra EXP and points.
- Players who defeat the champion in less than one minute can get extra EXP and points.

* BP can be traded in for Gallant Emblems through the BP Exchanger in Battle Square.
* Gallant Emblems can be used to purchase various items from Larson in Battle Square, including various accessories, Mystery Scrolls (using one gives you a random scroll), and Mystery Recipes (using one gives you a random crafting recipe).
* Gallant Emblems are also required ingredients for some crafting recipes.
* Many of the items sold by Larson give bonus Battle Mode ATT.
* Larson also sells basic arrows and crossbow arrows for mesos in case you're running low.
