Ballistae, and catapults, and siege bombs, heck yeah!

Our newest PvP mode throws you into the arena in two teams of 12. The goal? Destroy the other team’s Guardian Statue. The problem? The statues are nestled safely behind sturdy castle walls. The wickedly delightful, blissfully destructive solution? Ballistae, and catapults, and siege bombs. Heck, yeah!


Siege Match Rules

The new Siege Match requires teamwork, strategy, and an understanding of the new environmental weaponry to win. You’re on your own for the first two, but here’s a rundown of how it all works.

Game Rules:
  • The first team to destroy the other team’s Guardian Statue wins.
  • The game ends after 20 minutes.
  • If no one’s destroyed a Guardian Statue at the 20 minute mark, the game ends in a tie.
  • If you become incapacitated, you’ll respawn in your team’s base in 20 seconds.
Game Siege Bombs:
  • Siege Bombs prime automatically and explode 10 seconds after being used.
  • Siege Bombs are found in the central area. Only one can be equipped at a time.
  • Siege Bombs are primarily used to destroy castle gates.
Catapults:
  • Catapults have 10 shots initially.
  • More ammo can be found in surrounding areas.
  • If you’re hit by a catapult, you lose 10% of your armor.
Ballistae:

  • More ammo can be found in surrounding areas.
  • If you’re hit by a ballista, you lose 20% of your armor.
Guardian Statues:

  • When a statue is destroyed, the match ends.
Rewards:
  • The winning team gets 3 Triumph Medals.
  • The losing team gets 1 Triumph Medal.
  • If the match ends in a draw, both teams get 1 Triumph Medal.
