Square Enix has announced the first of many organized Conflict events for Final Fantasy XI, called "Ballista".
Conflict is a new form of organized, non-lethal Player vs. Player features being introduced to give Final Fantasy XI extra flare to the citizens of Vana'diel (and preparation for a potentially disasterous event).
Here is an excerpt from the article:
The interesting bits from Ballista is that sometimes it is necessary to kill an opposing team member to unlock a closed Rook. Temporary abilities are granted during a game match such as faster movement speed for those lacking a Petra and a seeking ability for those with a Petra to find a Rook. If a person was to compare it, they could compare it to modern-day rugby (except with a little more "umph" thrown in).
Square Enix promises to introduce more Conflict events in the future.
The full article, with some impressive in-game screenshots of Ballista, can be found here.
