It's a massive understatement to say that Carbine pulled the curtain back on Warplots this week! On Saturday, during PAX East, I was honored to be invited into a private area for an in-depth Warplot presentation by WildStar PvP Lead Jen Gordy assisted by PvP Designer, Kevin Lee.
At the outset, Jen stated that her goal for this event was to explain three key things about Warplots:
- What is a Warparty and how do you make one?
- What is a Warplot and how do you build one?
- How does a Warplot match work?
UPDATE: Carbine has unveiled their latest DevSpeak which happens to be all about Warplots:
WHAT IS WARPLOT PVP?
Jen explained that Warplots are WildStar's 40 vs. 40 PvP feature for level 50 players. Each team starts with a customizable fortress that they can upgrade using a currency called War Coins. War Coins are earned through participating in Warplot matches, achieving victory, killing players and disabling enemy structures.
Victory is achieved by either invading the enemy Warplot and destroying their generators or through killing players and disabling structures. At the conclusion of the match, both teams are rewarded with Loot Bags, Prestige and Elder Gems.
