Did you miss our preview of the next Call to Arms? The upcoming Orc Assault Skirmish Event pits you and your party against the vicious Many-Arrows orcs in order to protect Neverwinter Guard Post from being overrun.

 

Event begins: February 20, 2014 at 10 A.M. PST (Pacific) (When is this for you?)

Event ends: February 24, 2014 at 10 A.M. PST (Pacific) (When is this for you?)

 

If you are new to Call to Arms skirmish events, these events are available for players of all levels (from 6-60)! Also, you are able to queue for these skirmishes at any time while the event is active. To learn more about these fun events, check out our Call to Arms trailer below!

 

 

If you and your party are successful, you’ll be rewarded with some incredible items including an Armored Orc Wolf Companion, unique dyes, Cruel enchantments, and Medallions of Battle. Medallions of Battle can be redeemed in central Protector's Enclave for unique weapon transmutes, Refiner's Cache, and dyes. Sword Coast Adventures will also feature a special dungeon to battle Mog the Crusher and Medallions of Battle may drop from all challenges within it. Please note that the vendor will remain in Protector’s Enclave until February 27, 2014 at 10 A.M. PST.

PvP Improvements: Matchmaking & Penalties

By Pinpointerror @ February 18, 2014 at 9:59am

No Comments »

 

Do you enjoy dominating your opponents in PvP in Rivenscar Ruins and Hotenow? If you are ready to prove your skills against the best players in Neverwinter, we're excited to announce further changes to PvP to enhance your experience. Along with new PvP equipment for all classes, a new Tenacity stat to increase resistance to damage and control effects, we'll also be adding a matchmaking feature and penalize players who leave matches prematurely.

 

 

PvP Skill-Based Matchmaking

PvP Domination matches will be created using an ELO-like skill rating. Your skill rating will increase as win matches and decrease as you lose matches. If you win a match against players with much higher skill ratings, you will gain more points than if you had won against players with much lower skill ratings. Similarly, if you lose against players with much higher skill values, you will lose very few points compared to if you had lost against players with much lower skill values than yourself. The skill rating system also takes into consideration your teammates when determining your new skill rating after a match.

 

The PvP Domination queue attempts to match you with other players that are at a similar skill rating. As a result, queuing times for PvP Domination may be longer than you are used to, especially when the queue population is low. Even at low populations, however, the new queue times should be minimal as long as there are enough players in the queue to play.

 

 

PvP Leaver Penalty

PvP Domination matches aren’t as exciting when one or more of your team members leave during the middle of an intense fight for control points. With upcoming changes, we’ll be implementing a leaver penalty feature to encourage players to fight for every Glory point until the match is over.

 

You will be penalized for leaving PvP matches except in the following cases:

  • 2 minutes have gone by and there are 3 or fewer players left on your team.
  • The match is over.

If you attempt to leave your party during a time that you can be penalized, you will be presented with a confirmation window  that tells you how long you will be penalized for. If you cancel your attempt to leave, you will remain in the match and not be penalized. If you accept the penalty, then you will be removed from the match and incur the penalty.

 

PvP Leaver Penalty effects:

  • You will not be able to queue for any queueable content. This includes other Domination matches, Gauntlgrym, skirmishes and dungeons.
  • If you are a team leader and there is a penalized member on your team, when you attempt to queue for something, you will be notified that a player is penalized and your team will not be able to queue for any content.

As always, we’ll be looking for new ways to improve your PvE and PvP gameplay experience in-game. Do you have a great idea or suggestion to make the game even better? Let us know on the official Neverwinter forums!
