Rework: Crates, Kits, Quests & Buffs

Outlands has been a gamemode on The Archon for over a year now, and in that time the realm has grown and changed immensely; balancing out issues and making it more fair for all players, adding features and events to make the game more enjoyable, finding and fixing game-changing issues to make it the best quality it can be.

Many of the features that we added near the beginning that were essential to gameplay don't really fit into how Outlands works nowadays - the game has grown and gone down paths that we couldn't have possibly imagined of when we first created the gamemode.

Although we're happy with the general structure of Outlands, it is integral to tweak and rework key features that have been important for so long to keep the gamemode refreshing and up to standard. After carrying out deep analysis of the gameplay on Outlands for the past few months, we can assure you that these improvements are bound to make the overall quality of life better.

  • Crates: All of the crates on Outlands will go through a complete rework for the next season - this includes both the free and paid crates, with improvements and additions that haven't been seen before. This Saturday - the day of the release - we will be releasing 2 new crates on our server store, with awesome items that will be useful in-game.
  • Kits: We made sure to rework all of the current in-game kits, balancing out the items that are contained within them. We've filtered out the useless items and added items that are popular with the current Outlands meta.
  • Quests: We've taken a look at the current quests that we have in place and have seen that they are pretty unbalanced - that being whether the quests themselves are too difficult to complete or that the rewards aren't worth the time.
    We've updated many of the current quests, reworking the numbers to make it more realistic, as well as adding a new Quests crate that will contain exclusive rewards in-game.
  • Buffs: Last but not least, we've observed that in-game buff items are too common due to being too easy to obtain. As a result of this, we've changed the way that global and individual buffs work and how easy they are to get, and added some new useful buffs. Keep an eye on the new crate drops this weekend, as you'll be able to see what we have in-store for you.

Pre-set Duel Kits

The duel system was first introduced to Outlands a long time ago, and hasn't had many changes made to it since then. Due to this, we've been listening to player feedback on what we can do to make them better, and encourage players to participate in them more frequently.

You can now use pre-set kits when dueling! Fight against opponents using a variety of kits that mean that you don't have to worry about using your own gear. Practice your PvP against friends before taking part in events, or simply show that you are the better PvPer when fighting your enemies.

Leveling Up

The important thing that we discuss when talking about leveling up is the pace of progression - perfectly balancing out the process so that players don't progress to rapidly, thus gaining access to high level perks within a few days when this wasn't intended. As a result of this, we've made some changes to the system that will create a more balanced game:

  • Quest Requirements: You will now be required to meet a certain amount of quests completed before leveling up. This will be in place for when you hit levels 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 and 700. For example, to level up from 100 to 101, you must have a specific number of quests completed.

    As well as this, there are perks that you can unlock when you reach certain levels:

    Lvl 300: Unlock the ability to craft armor and guns with Legendary rarity.
    Lvl 500: Unlock the ability to craft Mythic guns.
    Lvl 600: Unlock the ability to craft Mythic armor.
    Lvl 700: Surprise reward!

Clan Roster & Alliance Removal

We looked into the benefits of alliances and whether they were worth having or not, so as a result we have decided to remove them for the upcoming season.

As well as this, the Clan Slots limit will be decreased to 4 players, with 5 players being allowed with the upgrade feature available on our server store.

We hope this balances out the gameplay in big and small sized clans - catering to all existing players. Be sure to read and keep up to date with our rules before the next season begins.
