  • PvP. Yes, there is a PvE element, but that's just a sideshow. Peeps come here to beat on peeps. That's pretty much it.
  • Go toe to toe with your enemies in the Battleground.
  • Besiege your enemies, and take out their castle.
  • Travel to the Elemental Worlds, or Heaven's Hell, for further challenges.

About the Game

This fantasy MMO title got its start in Korea, and ended up in Korean hands, after its dalliance with Codemaster. It's Orcs, Humans, Moon Elves and Dragon Scion fighting for their little bit of Chantra; each race is desperate for territory, and is constantly trying either to secure land for itself or defend its borders. Hence the conflict, and there's a lot of that.

Though there is a PvE element to the game, the focus is on PvP. Guild versus guild, race versus race, with weekly siege warfare events - custom battlegrounds, basically - for you to go guild-to-guild in castle defense fun. There are dungeons, pretty small ones if you've become used to World of Warcraft's sprawling instances, and all the usual fantasy stuff, but it's building towards the main event: Heaven's Hell, the final battles, where your tolerance for PvP will be tested to its limits.
