Commands


  • @joinbg - Puts you in the Battlegrounds queue. All buffs/debuffs will be removed upon joining and, of course, you can only do this in Towns or BG Lobby.
  • @leavebg - You can use this command to leave the game and area if you feel like you don't want to play anymore or have to go.
  • @reportafk - If a player is away for 10 minutes you can use this command to vote to kick them off the game.

 

Basics


  • Players must be level 255 to join Battlegrounds.
  • The matches have various player number requirements; enough players must be assembled before matches can begin. Players can join in the match while it's ongoing at anytime, with the exception of Kriger von Midgard where dropping in is only allowed during the preparation phase.
  • Participation in battlegrounds is rewarded with Steadfast Badge. These badges can be exchanged for various rewards at the Battlegrounds Lobby. The badges are account-bound.
  • When a match starts, one player at random in each team is chosen to be the Team Leader. The Leader has access to the Guild Skills through @guildskill
  • When a player dies in a match, there is a delay before player can re-enter the match, they can click the Return to Battle NPC to do so. The Healer NPC provides access to storage, regaining your mount and equipment repairs. Conquest and Krieger von Midgard have a few differences, read their sections below for more details. 
  • The battlegrounds follow War of Emperium mechanics rather than regular PvP mechanics.

 

How to join


You may join the Battlegrounds queue by using the @joinbg command. You automatically queue up for all modes, but the game will only look for players for one mode at a time, the current mode is displayed in chat. The modes will keep rotating until the minimum amount of players to start the current mode is reached.

You can also find Elena in Prontera city and she will warp you to the battlegrounds area to find the NPC that gives you rewards!

Game modes


Triple Inferno

  • Requires 9 players to start.
  • Players are randomly split into three even teams: Red Team, Blue Team, Green Tea.
  • The objective is to score 30 points. If the time runs out, the team with most points wins.
  • The Winner gets 5 Steadfast Badges, the loser gets 3 Steadfast Badges.
  • On death, players will drop one skull of their own team color alongside ANY other skulls they may have on them. Any player can pick them up as if they were normal items.
  • Each team spawns next to two pillars. If you have enemy skulls, you can touch the pillars (just pass by them 1-2 cell range) to turn them into points.
  • Skulls of your own team color cannot be turned to points. Picking them up merely serves to prevent the enemy from capturing them. (You will still drop them on death)
  • Emergency Call is disabled in this game mode.

Capture the Flag

  • Requires 10 players to start.
  • Players are randomly split into two even teams: Red Team and Blue Team.
  • The objective is to capture the enemy's flag. If the time runs, out the game is tied.
  • The winners get 5 Steadfast Badges, the losers get 3 Steadfast Badges.
  • Each team spawns with a crystal / flag in their base. Any player can touch their enemy's flag to take it with them.
  • You capture the flag by taking it to your own flag while it's resting at your base. If an enemy has taken the flag, you cannot capture until it's properly returned.
  • When the flag carrier dies, the flag will be dropped on the spot where the carrier died. If an allied player touches it, they will again take it. If an enemy player touches it, it automatically returns to their base.
  • Flag carriers cannot use healing items or skills and they also have their movement speed reduced (Cannot be increased or decreased further) and will constantly use the /help emote.
  • Emergency Call is disabled in this game mode.

Stone Control

  • Requires 10 players to start.
  • Players are randomly split into two even teams: Red Team and Blue Team.
  • The objective is to score 50 points. If the time runs out, the team with the most points will win.
  • The winner gets 5 Steadfast Badges, the losers get 3 Steadfast Badges.
  • Each team spawns with 6 black spots in their base, these are slots to put Stones in. Stones will start to give your team points if they're dropped on these. More stones, more points. (Just touch the spots to capture the stone)
  • When  the stone carriers dies, the stone will be dropped on the spot where carrier died. If any players touches it, they will take it.
  • Stone carriers cannot use potions or skills and they also have their movement sped reduced (Cannot be increased or decreased further) and will constantly use the /help emote.

Conquest

  • Requires 10 players to start.
  • Players are randomly split into two even teams: the attacking team and the defending team.
  • The objective of the attacking team is to destroy the Emperium. The defending team wins if they successfully defend the castle until time runs out.
  • The winners get 5 Steadfast Badges, the losers get 3 Steadfast Badges.
  • The mode is played on a random War of Emperium: Second Edition castle. The game mode is essentially WoE with shorter duration and the randomly arranged teams.
  • The match's timer extends when the attacking team successfully destroys a set of Barricades or destroy a Guardian Stone.
  • On death, the player will automatically return to battle after some time passes, unlike other modes where clicking the Return to Battle NPC will send you back whenever you want. 
  • Conquest holds some differences from regular War of Emperium: Team Leaders cannot repair Barricades or Guardian Stones.

Krieger von Midgard

  • Requires 10 players to start.
  • Players are randomly split into two even teams: Red Team and Blue Team.
  • The objective is to kill all players in the enemy team. If the time runs out, the team with the most players alive will win.
  • The winners get 5 Steadfast Badges, the losers get 3 Steadfast Badges.
  • Each team spawns in a small preparation room where they can prepare for battle. Players other than the initial 6 can only drop-in the game during this period (Through @joinbg).
  • On death, players are returned to the preparation room to await the battle's result and receive their rewards.
  • Emergency Call is disabled in this game mode.

Guardian Battle

  • Players are randomly split into two even teams: Red Team and Blue Team.
  • A guardian will spawn at the base of each team at the beginning of the round.
  • The objective is to destroy the enemy guardian before your guardian is destroyed. The first team that destroys the enemy Guardian wins the round.
  • Guardians do not move, but have a large attack range with a few skills.
  • Two Ballistic Archers will spawn in the middle of the map. Players may bring supplies to these Archers to launch a heavy attack at the enemy guardian.
  • If both guardians are still alive at the end of 8 minutes, the round will end with a tie.
