    We are excited to share with the community something that we have been working on for 4 years now.

    launchNews.png

    We are introducing the PVP Token System exclusively on Planet Cyrene. What this means is, that you will be able to log onto Planet Cyrene and go to our PVP Hub. From there you can purchase PVP entry tokens to enter one of 3 arenas, each with two different entry costs. Each arena has a different entry cost and gives a different type of reward token for each PVP kill.

    All of the arenas require specific weapons and armor that may only be used in the Arenas, and will not be allowed outside of the arenas, or on any other planet. This also means that none of the existing weapons on either Cyrene or in the Entropia Universe will work in these arenas. When you collect the PVP tokens, you can trade them in for different items available at the rewards token NPC Quartermasters. There you can purchase unique weapons and items that will add flavor to the PVP experience.

    One important thing to note about the arenas is that skills are all reset or increased so that they are equal. This means that everyone starts with the same set of PVP skills and Health. Another important feature is that the run speed has been increased to maximum speed but there are weapons that can have different effects on your movement.

    Lastly, we would like to mention that once in the arena you can only claim victory of the reward token if you have done the most damage to the other player. Meaning:
    • if you have done most of the damage to another player
    • you are killed before you finish them off
    • they do not heal and someone else quickly kills them
    • you still receive the reward token for your efforts

    The tokens themselves also have a PED value. Meaning, that if you are skilled enough, you can actually come away with tokens that far exceed the amount you invest into the entry tokens, which in turn makes this a truly unique way of earning PED in Entropia Universe.

    Hmm.. How can you kill anyone in the PvP arena if you can't bring any weapons into it? :)

    Try and open the client loader with admin rights?
    Sometimes that might help.

    So, all of pvp on Cyrene is like this? Or at least the areas with rewards?

    Or have I skilled my avatar for 7 years for nothing?

    u have skilled urself well so u know how to fight now for the rest of us we gotta practice to fight better just like pvp in space takes practice. this is nice even match for everyone especially those that are new players but maybe have skills in pvp from other games like me. :) good job either way ur experience will help more than skills on a new planet love it or hate it this is actually something I was hopeing would happen someday and this planet is beginning to show equality and chances to grow for everyone new and old / returning players

    If the weapon rewards where useable outside of the PVP areas I would be doing PVP for the next few weeks. This way they're utterly useless. :p So yeah time to explore other areas outside of the HUB.

    i wouldn't say for nothing your skills still matter for land area battles on calypso and rocktropia which are maybe more worth it i dont know.

    You gotta admit this will bring in a lot of new players for sure. There was a game that tried this before actually but they took everyones money and ran before people cashed out.

    I'm kinda disappointing because i'm not a PVP guy but overall i think it was a good way to go.

    "Equality" sounds nice to those who haven't put in many thousands of hours and dollars skilling.

    I'm not against an area like that, but not for it if it's the only pvp on the planet.

    Sounds like Cyrene has bigger problems atm though.

    The Hub is the only Place that has this feature. On all other PVP areas of Cyrene Skills are normal.

    I have spent tons of time and money maybe not as much as some but I have been here on and off for many years . Lost alot from stupidity and when I was hospitalized. I'm back again and fairly new avatar since I chose to switch to a female avatar ( personal investment . female avatars just have lots of things for them clothes etc) so yes I'm very happy to see this happen and wish there wont be too much of an imbalance like it is on other pvp area.

    I will give an example since these new items and armors been around u can see everyone use vehicles in pvp ( cheaper to buy and max sib with good damage, storage for lootable pvp easy way to not lose anything) and L armor L plates ( very high resistance to multiple weapons so most newcomers with sib guns can't even break, newcomers can survive with no skills and be able to kill you if they bought expensive non sib UL guns like mad 4 or even uber guns / weapons) this right here makes pvp dull boring and quite frankly unbalanced. pvp in space is balanced with exception of exploits ( reason why not too many ppl fight with big ships) but pvp is about fun and they took it away with all these unbalanced things. only fun pvp is when u can kill each other in teh small pvp rings naked :D
