I think that many AO PvP-oriented players were dissappointed with the content of “Revelations of Gipat” Addon. We were given one new zone where PvP is forbidden and also new game mechanics made death in player versus player battles more costly. It seemed that Gpotato with Astrm Nival forgot about PvPers (in spite of the fact that many FtPs really encourage player killing).
Well, good news, everyone. It seems that next addon will be about PvP only. On RU servers they install patches more freqently but with less changes introdced.

Massive damage reduction wasn’t even mentioned in the patchnotes. Devs gave a clear message: “If u want to level like you did before – buy perfumes, buy charms, buy exp boost scrolls and have fun”.
Personally I don’t mind paying for good MMORPG and Allods is certainly one of the best MMOs on the market. But Read the rest of this entry »
