Silkroad Online unleashes ultimate PvP test with Survival Arena
In the new arena combat mode, fighters only have five minutes to finish off foes before settling for an embarrassing tie.
Silkroad Online players will also have the shortest time to prepare for each arena match – a scant 60 seconds. From these mechanics, it’s clear that the Survival Arena is designed to be a quick and brutal engagement that should quicken the pulse of even the most battle-hardened fighters.
Set to be released next week on March 19, the Survival Arena will be available for the whole week, except for Sundays which will continue to be reserved for Fortress Wars. While other rpg games online offer features round-the-clock, Silkroad Online has set a definite schedule for Survival Arena matches, shown below:
Individual matches - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday - 2:00am, 9:00am, and 6:00pm PST (2:00am, 11:00am, and 7:00pm server time)
Team matches - Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays – same time as individual matches
Survival Arena champions stand to receive new titles and magic buffs that cannot be obtained anywhere else in the mmorpg. The new titles can be purchased with coins earned from PvP participation.
With such prestigious prizes at stake, Silkroad Online developers have devised an arena ranking system based on the number of wins and losses, and points earned over a certain period of time. There will also be occasional ranking board wipes to prevent “so one player won’t be able to easily dominate the top spot,” said Silkroad Online developer and publisher Joymax.
