Battle Royal - Tonight!

Mythic announced a new PTS event for tonight, a Tier 4 Battle Royal. This looks like they want to test out how the new keep layouts fare in battle. They will also be giving away mounts to some lucky players. While I don't really want the mount, I do want to help out.

They will have templates available for use if you don't have a Tier 4 character. The templates are decked out in Sovereign Armor, so you will at least look awesome. Although, I tried a Knight template last event and I had no idea what I was doing. I ended up just running around hitting random buttons.

As I mentioned, the big change in Tier 4 RvR are the keep layouts. They added a 2nd ramp, which is too big to be tank-walled off. It will be interesting to see how this changes the siege. The pessimistic side of me thinks that it will make defending the keep very difficult.

The most likely result is that the tank wall will be moved to the door. In my experience, a tank wall at the door never goes well due to Rank 4 Morale abilities. It is much easier for the attackers to target these at the door area compared to the ramp.

That is what tonight is for though, so get on and have some fun.


Why has this simple change taken so long? Sigh.
