We like to really refer to ourselves as a PvX game, because in those systems of PvP, PvE, crafting they're all intertwined: They're interdependent on each other... Our system of development really requires some interdependence there between those things. You're going to need a crafter to give you the best items. You're going to need PvPers to secure cities and castles. You're gonna need PvErs to take down those world bosses for those materials to craft.[1]Steven Sharif

Ashes is a comprehensive game. It is not a PvP focused or a PvE focused, it is a comprehensive PvX game and as a result these systems are all interconnected and have to coexist with one another with certain types of mechanisms that can provide that give and take, that push and shove.[2]Steven Sharif

Ashes of Creation 是一款 PvX 遊戲。 PvPPvE 的要素都會自然接觸得到,[2][3][4] 而玩家將不太可能「純玩」PvPPvE[4]

我們有很清晰的目標和理念,也明白不會得到所有人的歡心。然而 PvE 和 PvP 內容相輛相成,它們都是玩家投放時間成長發展的方向,也讓玩家重視隨之而來的得失,從而誘發玩家的感情,而這樣的元素正是由 PvP 帶來的。因此我們很清楚我們的目標就是:風險與回報的關係、以及追求成就的思維。不會每個人都是贏家,而這是沒問題的。[8]Steven Sharif

PvP

Alpha-1開放世界商隊 PvP[10]

Player combat in Ashes of Creation is both vast and intimate. It spans many aspects of the game itself. From great political battles held on the fields of massive castles, to open world conflicts fought for the pride of Guild Leaders. A player can choose to participate in the fate of the world by swaying the tide of battle with his or her combat prowess. Our PvP mechanics follow a flagging system, as well as static PvP zones at certain points of interest; fight for control over cities, castles, caravans, or hunting grounds. Our PvP is designed to offer the players a well-balanced and fair world to shape through the pen, or sword should they choose.[11]

PvP (玩家對戰) 是 Ashes of Creation 產生改變的關鍵要素。[12]商隊戰鬥以至在廣闊的世界以國王和王后之名而戰,皆旨在促成有意義的玩家對戰。[13]

正因為玩家有不同的誘因,正因為玩家有不同的追求,衝突必不可避。不同玩家將會渴求不同的體驗,因而產生的衝突將締造更龐大、更好玩的體驗。紛爭過後,萬物重生 — 是貫徹整個遊戲的核心主題。[14]Jeffrey Bard

Ashes of Creation 有很多原因促使玩家參與野外 PvP[15]

我們的標記系統雖然會讓 PvP 玩家進入腐化狀態,但 PvP 仍會存在。遊戲有大量原因促使玩家在開放世界參與 PvP:稀缺的資源、位於開玩世界的狩獵場、商隊運輸、攻城戰、公會戰等等。[15]Steven Sharif

死亡懲罰將不適用於存在特定目標的活動 (例如商隊公會戰攻城戰)。[16]

商隊 PvP

Alpha-1商隊 PvP[17]

You won't be able to see inside specifically but as part of the caravan structure itself there will be little hints as to what the the cargo is. So for example if you've seen some of our recent footage with caravans you kind of see sitting on top of the caravan there's some gold or some silver or some iron.[18]Steven Sharif

商隊週邊會形成一個開放式 PvP 區域,區域內的玩家會被標記成戰鬥員 (紫色)[19]

  • 在決定進攻或防守商隊前,玩家將無法確切看到商隊運輸中的貨物。但會有視覺提示顯示車上的貨物,例如金、銀或鐵。[18]
  • 玩家將可以透過介面視窗決定攻擊、防守或無視商隊。[20][21][22]
    • 距離商隊多遠視窗才會出現,將取決於玩家先前作為攻擊方或防守方的表現。[20]
  • 要成功擊毀一個商隊,將需要一個隊伍。[23][24]
  • 在商隊擁有人登出或與伺服器連接中斷 5 至 10 分鐘後,商隊才會消失。[25]

It's still intended from a design standpoint to be a window that is presented to the player based on proximity; and that proximity it can be greater depending on your performance as either a defender or an attacker in previous raids.[20]Steven Sharif

雙方皆有誘因鼓勵玩家加入,並將於 Alpha 及 Beta 階段測試。[26]

  • 大部分誘因都是社交性的,而且是由玩家之間非正式協議而成。[26]

The caravan defender role is going to have its own progression questing and rewards associated with it that are going to attract a certain subset of players and then you know vice-versa wise we're going to have incentives that appeal to the more highway brigand type players; and you know you might not always be on one side or the other: that might change depending on what your interests are in the at the time. But obviously you know those types of systems need to have robust you know consequential type rewards and benefits associated with them in order to compel the player; and that's something obviously we're going to test in alphas and betas and see how performant it is in actually attracting players to participate and make sure it's not just one-sided so-to-speak.[26]Steven Sharif

Also the hope would be that the people who are running the caravans can offer their own rewards that "Hey if you come help me defend this thing I'll give you some cut", or that these are my friends or these are my guilds- that a lot of the sort of incentive is social and created between players.[26]Jeffrey Bard

攻城戰

Alpha-1 castle siege gameplay.[9]

Throughout Ashes of Creation, the player has an opportunity to participate in massively multiplayer siege warfare. Since castles are likely the world’s most limited resource, it will be a task to secure and hold them. Involving hundreds of players on a single battlefield, our sieges will employ many moving parts and intricate design features. Because of the difficult nature of taking and keeping a castle there are great rewards available to the players for their efforts. Castles will allow players to exert control over nearby lands and allow for the development of unique buildings in the nearby towns.[11]

行会 participate in 攻城戰 in an effort to capture and occupy one of the five guild castles in Ashes of Creation.[27]

  • The minimum goal is for 250x250 players to be on a single battlefield. It is hoped that this can be increased to 500x500 over time.[30]

There may be instanced locations within otherwise open-world castle and node sieges, where specific groups can participate in small, short duration objective-based battles that will affect the overall outcome of the siege.[31]

  • It was previously stated that castle sieges may or may not be (entirely) instanced in the final game.[32]

What we were talking about was how during castle sieges or node sieges, you're going to have certain instanced locations where it's only going to be a group that's designated to participate versus another group while the siege is happening. And I know in the past we talked about well how do you plan to incorporate these more objective-based waypoints as part of these larger events; and say that not only is it going to be a complement of numbers or in the overall grand kind of battle perspective, but there's also going to be opportunities for smaller more niche groups to participate in more focused objective capturing. And a part of that is going to be small very short, kind of ten minute long instanced battles where groups can go and participate against other groups that are defender versus attacker; and the outcome of which will influence certain aspects of the overall battle while that's still occurring in the background.[31]Steven Sharif

Each week leading up to the siege week... is a week that's dedicated to one of the three castle dedicated nodes. So around the castle there are three nodes. They represent week, one, two, and three; and then the fourth week is the siege against the castle. Those can only be elevated up to stage three. We've discussed this in the past and there's definitely information out there on the community ran wiki.[36]Steven Sharif

A guild that captures a castle will own that castle for a month before it is sieged again.[36][37]

  • In the first three weeks that a guild occupies a castle they will need to level up each of their castle nodes to 村莊 stage through questing.[36][37]
    • Each of the three castle nodes have a siege against it at the end of each of these three weeks.[37][38]
  • The fourth week is declaration week, where other guilds have the opportunity to lay down their declaration flag or to sign up as a defender of the castle.[36][37]
  • Depending on how well the guild defends their castle nodes results in better defenses for the castle.[37][38]
  • Different siege weaponry will grant the attackers the ability to destroy walls, doors and sections of the castle in order to gain access to the inner keep area.[39]
  • When castles change hands (following a siege), some taxes stay with the castle and some stay with the guild.[40]

There will be benefits to attracting people... even if they're not in your guild or alliance – kind of a feudal like system, where you can attract other players who are just independent of this whole politic. They will have things to do there - benefits to receive - and there will be a reciprocal relationship between who you can attract, what they do for you; and how that benefits you and them.[37]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 攻城戰

Trebuchets in the Alpha-1 preview castle siege attackers headquarter camp.[42]

Alpha-1 攻城戰 are based on Ashes of Creation Apocalypse castle sieges.[44][35]

  • Players will be able to join guilds. These guilds can register for the siege events.[42]
  • Castle siege events will be 100v100 battles that occur daily and will last for three hours.[42]
  • Attackers will start on the opposite end of the map (from the defenders).[42]
  • Attackers will be able to use trebuchets to drive to and assault the castle.[42]
    • Trebuchets have a single primary fire that does a small amount of damage to players and heavy damage to buildings.[42]
    • Trebuchets will be fully physical when they are being driven.[42]
  • When the attackers have breached the castle they will be able to channel a cast on the relic in the throne room to try to capture the castle from the defenders.[42]
  • The victors of castle sieges will receive benefits, such as cloaks, flying mounts for guild leaders and potentially also for guild officers.[42]
  • Alpha-1 攻城戰 are in a separate zone that is accessible via a NPC teleporter.[33][34][32]
    Currently the siege zone is actually in the open world, but separated by mountains and off in the sea a bit. There is actually no instancing in A1, although the siege zone will only be accessible in A1 through a registration NPC teleporter.[33]Steven Sharif
  • The opposing team is notified when these raid bosses are being attacked.[44]
  • Teams who get the last hit on these bosses will receive buffs that will help them in the siege battle.[44]

Last year, I spoke of attempting to incorporate sieges into the Alpha One experience. This has obviously been a goal of mine because it provides considerable data and a consistent event within the world that players can participate in to help stress test the deployment. Well, I am happy to say that it is appearing more and more likely by the day! Initial implementation of the Apocalypse siege code has been migrated into the Alpha One client, and we should begin internal testing next month. I will caveat this expectation with the fact that we are cutting it a bit close from an internal QA standpoint, but I have some confidence that the system will be online and capable of inclusion for the Alpha One test in the month of June. The siege component will obviously not be representative of what the siege system will be at launch, or even in Alpha Two.[35]Steven Sharif

節點戰

節點戰 (Pre-alpha footage).[46]

As some areas in the world grow, others will fall. This is the foundation of the living, breathing world that is Ashes of Creation, where players will have the ability to make important decisions that matter in the longevity of an area becoming a city, or whether to siege a rival town. Rise above the ashes, create the world around you, and be a part of the story that unfolds because of your actions and decisions.[47]Margaret Krohn

節點戰 enable players to destroy nodes.[47] This paves the way for new development and access to the locked content in surrounding nodes. Due to this dynamic, political strife and intrigue play an important role in the structure of the world.[48]

Sieging nodes will not be an easy task for the attackers. Cities and metropolises will have a considerable defensive advantage.[48]

If you own a home in a node and you don't want to see that home destroyed, you need to defend that city![14]Steven Sharif

The majority (~80%) of content in Ashes of Creation is open-world but there may be instanced battles within castle and node sieges where specific groups can participate in small, short-duration objective-based battles for specific waypoints.[31]

Death penalties do not apply to objective-based events (such as caravans, guild wars, and node sieges).[16]

公會戰

Guild war features are currently still in the design stage, but the overall goal is for guild wars to be objective-based with great risk for each side.[49]

  • Guild war objectives are designed to be more fluid than castle siege objectives.[50]
  • Guild wars will not be permanent. Definitive victory conditions exist that are based on the level of the warring guilds and the assets that those guilds have.[51]

I can't really define exactly what those features are yet because that design stage is still up in the air from a discussion standpoint. There's a lot of different ideas that relates to how those two can come into play, but I will say that in every MMO I've ever played guild wars are very binary. They're very like 'Okay you've declared, you have a number of kills to deaths and the guild war's over, thank you...' My objective to kind of change that dynamic is to include greater risk for the sides to initiate the war and also to make it more objective-based than just a binary kill death ratio; and the fortresses and guild halls come into that type of facilitating that change.[49]Steven Sharif

Objectives spawn in the world based on the level of the guild war and the assets available to the guilds, whether it be a guild hall or guild fortress.[49] There will be default objectives and then there'll be objectives that relate to the activities that a Guild has participated in.[50]

  • For example, if a guild has recently become owners of a guild hall on a freehold, objectives might be related to capturing a quest item in or around the guild hall that is only visible to the warring guild. Capturing this objective may require channeling time.[50]
  • There might be objectives to steal one of the quest items that the guild may have received from completing a raid.[50]
  • There may be bounty objectives to kill a particular guild member. The target may have increased damage mitigation and/or health against the warring guild and can call for help.[50]

If you have a guild hall and a certain type of guild war is declared that is maybe a higher stakes kind of war, some of those objectives will be centralized either at your guild hall, at the opponent's guild hall; could be a progression step towards the guild hall. It might be a specific a period of time that accumulates into into a central battle at the guild hall for an objective.[49]Steven Sharif

Death penalties do not apply to objective-based events (such as caravans, guild wars, and node sieges).[16]

狩獵場

狩獵場 are open-world PvP corruption-enabled areas that encompass most of the map.[52]

One of the interesting components of Ashes of Creation and our flagging system is that it presents the potential for two conflicting parties to have open conflict in the open world over pretty much anything that they may want or disagree with; and if that pertains to a hunting ground, not just the caravan or the castles or the nodes or whatever, it can exist in that area.[55]Steven Sharif

Outside of PvP for certain things like caravans, sieges of nodes and/or castles is that you're going to have those open-world hunting ground fights that may occur. You're going to have resources fights that may occur. You're going to have political fights that may occur between members of guilds; and we're taking the guild politics to a whole new direction in regards to playing those conflicts out.[54]Steven Sharif

Our PvP mechanics follow a flagging system, as well as static PvP zones at certain points of interest; fight for control over cities, castles, caravans, or hunting grounds. Our PvP is designed to offer the players a well-balanced and fair world to shape through the pen, or sword should they choose.[56]

海上 PvP

Operators of a ship's weapons platform can initiate naval PvP against another ship in the following three cases.[57]

競技場

競技場 are instanced PvP scenarios and are not part of open world PvP.[59][60]

The arena system as we've spoken about before is going to have ladder systems where people can progress within certain seasons based on their win/loss ratios. The importance of arenas are obviously that players have an opportunity to participate [and] practice out certain builds from a PvP perspective and can compete with one another within the system.[59]Steven Sharif

PvE

Alpha-1 Elder Dragon of the Tundra raid boss.[68]

The environment in Ashes of Creation is a visually stunning realm, with fantastical beasts and creations designed to both inspire awe and instill fear. The world is harsh and unforgiving, presenting a clear and present danger to the players. Dungeons, demons and dragons, oh MY! Our unique and adaptive AI means that an encounter with similar creatures will yield a completely different experience to adapt to as a player. Keeping you on your toes for constantly changing responses from your adversary. The world awaits its heroes.[11]

Elder Dragon of the Wood raid boss gameplay.[69]

Whenever you have a player versus environment setting you don't want a stagnant kind of overly repetitive because its lackluster. It does not have that a component that engages.[70]Steven Sharif

The Node system facilitates the generation of new PvE content such as 任務, 地下城, 大型副本 and 怪物金幣.[13]

There is going to be a lot of PvE content for all portions of the playerbase... Part of that risk versus reward: Your risk is your time you're putting in to having a chance at getting the reward and successfully completing; and that should feel good based on how much time you devote. Now I know that there's a spectrum of casual and hard-core players in the time there, what we can do, but that's why we have many different content paths that play towards how you affect the world around you.[71]Steven Sharif

PvE content adapts to the development of the world to avoid repetition.[70]

Alpha-1 PvE 內容

PvE content in Alpha-1:

There's over 200 quests in the game right now. There's a bunch of dungeons. We've retooled all of the boss fights. Those dragons that you see in the siege are also in the world- part of the open-world too. There will be a slightly different- there are some extra mechanics in the siege versions versus the ones that are in the world, but there's plenty of cool things to get on both of them, so make sure you check them out and hunt them down.[34]Jeffrey Bard

任務

Alpha-1 early quest user interface.[77]

Questing in our world combines the best elements of traditional MMO’s as well as the introduction of our unique player driven experiences. Ashes of Creation offers area quests, public quests, and quest chains that change dynamically and in real time based on the player’s experiences and choices. Players will have the ability to directly alter world events and change the landscape through their actions, as an individual and as a community. Server quests will allow political rivals to compete for the fate of the world.[11]

任務 in Ashes of Creation are divided into three categories: Events, 任务 and Narrative quests.[78][79][80]

We’re going to be breaking up what is traditionally called ‘questing’ into three different categories: Narratives, Events, and Tasks. We want to avoid going down the path of trying to force narrative into gameplay where it doesn’t really fit (ie: filler stuff that doesn’t really relate to what’s happening in the world).[80]

Questing will be placeholder until Alpha-2.[72][73]

Read more...

地下城

地下城 in Ashes of Creation will range in size and will be mostly open-world.[85][86]

There are going to be smaller, simpler, linear dungeons. There's going to be bigger, more complex, nonlinear dungeons. So, It's a little bit of both. We want the environment to be a character. In order for the environment to be a character, these places need to be interesting and there needs to be a dynamicism to them.[85]Jeffrey Bard

Half the problem won't just be solving the dungeon, it will be solving other players too.[87]Jeffrey Bard

Dungeon difficulty will increase the further a player ventures into the dungeon.[90]

  • Mobs and mob mechanics will become more difficult.[90]
  • Terrain and environmental dangers will increase.[90]

Deeper darker types of interactions will be found deeper in the dungeon.[90]Steven Sharif

There are approximately 6 or 7 dungeons in Alpha-1.[76]

Read more...

大型副本

大型副本 will either be based on triggered events or more traditional systems. Traditional world bosses will change based on node development.[93]

We want things to be more fluid and one of the ways that we make them more fluid is through our triggered event system. That is one of the methods by which we make these more spontaneous. We make them more accessible to a wider audience. You can be just in the city and not normally be a part of a raid team, but now get to participate in this organic event that's kind of popped up around the city and if you are not participating then buildings are gonna get destroyed and NPCs are going to die... It's not just how fast can we do it, how will we get it done in its schedule, but oh my god this thing popped up if we don't kill it we're not going to access to our stables this week and we can't get our animal husbandry certificates... It's that risk versus reward that gives you a sense of adrenaline.[94]Steven Sharif

There is one true 40 person raid boss and an almost raid-level dungeon in Alpha-1.[76]

世界頭目

There will be ancillary effects that happen as a result of downing certain world bosses.[96]

When a server downs a legendary boss, I want it to cost time, resources, dedication; and when you do that I want everyone to benefit from it.[97]Steven Sharif
