Fury : Fury League Launched

Posted May 09, 2008 by Keith Cross

Auran has announced the launch of Fury League, a new game which walks in the footsteps of Fury, and promises cash for the game's top players.

Brisbane, Australia, May 8 2008.

Auran Games, creators of Fury, the fast-paced arena combat game, today announced the launch of a new skill-based online competitive format called Fury League (www.FuryLeague.com). Players can not only test their skills against other players but also win Fury Gold which can be converted into real cash.

To introduce players to the new “turn skill into cash” concept, the Fury League Qualifying Season will run throughout the month of May. This is a totally free to play Qualifying Season aimed at building a large social and competitive online community based around fast paced arena combat.

To get the competitive juices flowing, and to ensure plenty of hard fought competition, the Qualifying Season will culminate in two special “Cash Ladders”. The top 1,000 players on each Ladder will win cash prizes with a total of $25,000 to be won. The first Cash Ladder will kick off May 20 with players competing in 8 v 8 team Vortex. The second will begin on May 27 with players competing in the 4 v 4 Elimination game type.

In addition to the Cash Ladders, for every game played during the Qualifying Season players earn one Free game entry in Fury League which will kick off in June. Players can earn up to a maximum of 1,000 free game entries, so players of every skill level will be rewarded for participating in Qualifying Season matches.

Voyage Century Online : Deep-sea Fishing Rod Exchange Event

Posted May 09, 2008 by Keith Cross

IGG has announced an event called the Deep-sea Fishing Rod exchange event in Voyage Century Online.

Voyage Century will be launching the Deep-sea Fishing rod exchange event so players can go fishing. Deep-sea Fishing rod is one of the top fishing tools in VC, and as you probably know the level of your fishing tools determines the success rate for obtaining top items, so the top fishing tools are always in great demand.

Recently, a player bid 15000 (omg!) credits to buy Deep-sea Fishing rod. This is far higher than the most expensive mall item. Well in order to thank this player for his support of our game, we will reward him with 15001 credits.

After we release the Deep-sea Fishing rod exchange event, players only need to pay 500 credits to get the item. We hope our players have fun with it.

Voyage Century will continue respecting all players’ suggestions and thoughts, and making responses as quickly as we can. Offering our players the best service is always our goal.

General : Your Sub. Dollars... A Billion of Them

Posted May 09, 2008 by Keith Cross

Gamesindustry.biz has posted an interesting story that reveals that Americans have spend over one billion dollars in online game subscriptions.

The NPD Group has released data indicating that the value of US online game subscriptions exceeds USD 1 billion annually.

This finding was based on data gathered between October 2007 and March 2008. The NPD also said that 11 million people subscribe to online games each month.

"Now that NPD can estimate the value of the subscription market, it's clear that there is a sizable chunk of revenue being generated by PC gaming beyond what is reflected in retail sales," said NPD analyst Anita Frazier.

Other analysts and execs have previously suggested that data showing a decline in PC sales does not reflect a true picture of the business because it does not account for digital distribution and online subscription sales.

NPD also analysed the demographics, finding that the majority of gaming website players are females over 35 years of age, while MMO players are largely males under age 35.

Vanguard : Server Transfers

Posted May 09, 2008 by Keith Cross

The folks at Vanguard have announced that they will be holding two server transfer opportunities to new, old and returning characters. The first round happens on May 13th.

Vanguard’s excited to announce that we’re offering two opportunities for server transfers to new and existing Vanguard players! Originally, we had offered one transfer per character created before the server merges, but due to a large amount of old friends coming back to the game, we’ve decided to do away with all those rules, and open up the server transfers to anyone – regardless of their creation date or prior move history.

We’re hoping this opportunity will let people come back to the game, and easily find a home on a server where their friends are playing.

The first round of transfers will be happening on Tuesday, May 13th. The second will come sometime the following week. Requesting a move is simple, and only requires logging into the game and using the /petition command. Players will need to include the names of all the characters on their account they would like to have moved, along with the server they would like to be transferred to.

Things to keep in mind:

Players cannot transfer to the Sartok (PvP) server, but are free to move to any other server.

All broker items should be packed up before the move, tombstones and house items collected. Players do not need to tear down their homes.

World of Kung Fu : Forging System

Posted May 09, 2008 by Keith Cross

Vestgame, the company behind the MMO World of Kung Fu has released details on the game's Forging System.

Armor and weapons bring their owner not only powerful attack and defense capabilities, but also reputation and honor! Every weapon or piece of forged armor records its owner’s heroic deeds. The WoKF Forging system is an excellent way for players to improve their weapons and armor.

Key Facts about the Forging System

Attributes:

Four attributes can be increased through forging: Hit Points, Magic Points, Attack and Defense. Different equipment has different forgeable attributes. For weapons, helmets, and cuffs, attack and defense attributes can be increased by forging. For chest armor, leg armor, and boots, Hit Points and Magic Points can be increased by forging.

Bonus Levels Achieved by Forging:

Armor and Weapons will increase by 1 level after each successful forging. Each time an item is forged, the forging bonus will increase one level. The forging bonus will be +2, +3, and so on up to 20.

Success and Failure:

Forging is not without risk. If the forging is successful, the armor or weapon’s attribute will be increased. Otherwise, the armor or weapon will vanish.

Shine:

Armor and weapons are likely to shine after forging.  Depending on the forging level, the color of the shine will be different.

No shine: +1 to +3

White: +4 to +6

Blue: +7 to +9

Green: +10 to +12

Orange: +13 to +15

Red: +16 to +18

Purple: +19

Black: +20

Charms:

Certain charms are available that can help ease the forging process.

The Craftsman’s Charm increases your chance of success while forging.

The Advanced Craftsman’s Charm will improve the odds of a successful forge even more than the Craftsman’s Charm.

The Forging Safety Charm will prevent an item from vanishing after an unsuccessful forging attempt.

Age of Conan : Developer Profile - Per Storløkkenn

Posted May 08, 2008 by Jon Wood

Every month, the folks from Funcom provide us with a new developer profile Q&A, telling us just a little bit more about the people behind Age of Conan. This time around, it's Per Storløkkenn, a Gameplay Designer.

MMORPG.com:

Can you remember your first video game? How often did you play, what other games had an influence on you?

Per Storløkkenn:

One of the first games I remember playing repeatedly was a Space Invaders clone on the VIC-20 that I think was called Battlefield. I also remember playing the first Donkey Kong on a handheld. I never played a lot when I was young, that came later.

There isn’t one game that has influenced me a lot; there are rather many games that each has influenced me a little. However, when I started gaming “for real” two of the games that I spent the most time on were QuakeWorld: TeamFortress and Ultima Online - they both represent the type of game I prefer. They both gave me (to some degree unintentionally) a lot of freedom as a player. In QW:TF the unintentional gameplay made the game; it’s a fact of life that rocket jumps, grenade jumps, and triple pipe jumps are fun!

Earthrise: First Impact : Two Music Tracks

Posted May 08, 2008 by Jon Wood

Sounds are generally used in games to set some kind of mood while the player is moving through the world. While we still don't have much information on the game, the folks from Earthrise have provided us with these two tracks from their upcoming MMORPG.

Vision of a Dream

Sal Vitas and its advanced towns are the cornerstone of human culture and art. Unlike 20th century cities built to fit the landscape, Sal Vitas has terraformed the land to fit the imagination of the glorious architects. Every element is designed and built carefully, down to the most minute detail, in an effort to complete a solid image. Sal Vitas is not only a city, but a testament to vision and determination.

You can download the song from the feature.

Seating is limited and is reserved for journalists, but we will have quite a few extra seats for some of Oslo’s Age of Conan fans. We can’t guarantee a seat, but if you meet up outside Latter on Aker Brygge at 12:00 CET, there might be a chance for you to get in!

In the evening we’re hosting a huge party in Holmenkollen – one of Norway’s key national wonders – where we’re building an entire Cimmerian war camp to honor the release of our game (and possibly wage war on the evil wizard inhabiting the tower!). And guess what? Those of you who actually get into the presentation during the day will have a chance of also being invited to the party in Holmenkollen!
