Re: Battle Islands to be revealed at MLG


From what I remember the Battle Islands would be intergrated into PS2 for all players to play on. They would have much smaller player limit caps than the other major continents and they would be used as part of the continent locking mechanic. The idea was for each island to be locked to 2 factions fighting for control so that we wouldn't have the constant 3 ways. They were going to make it part of the regular game so that players had the oppurtinity to play these maps and learn them.. the catch being their faction has to be able to access them since they are locked to 2 factions.

If that is all accurate then the MLG will provide benefits to non-MLGers. Sounds like a solid win for everyone.

Yeah it's the original, with the battle islands as a separate map/cont. I doubt we'll see another bending happen.

Not much in details to talk about is there? Good luck to the outfits taking part in what ever it is though.

Id say NUC needs the practice so that they give better fights. Their air power is good, but not so much in ground pounding.
(friendly jest between competing outfits)

Re: Upcoming MLG Weekend Events


If its available to everyone how do you get 48 of your own outfit in and not any pugs? If you are pugging it, does it auto squad you? How do you balance an outfit only 48 vs. a pug 48? Are resources and cooldowns reset before and after the match? What happens in the regular continents when 96 players go missing?

I like the idea, but don't want it to make the non battle island fights suck.

The ones I listed should be "for sure" from what I've seen on Reddit and otherwise.

If Jennyboo gets a bat with which to hit bailers, then it might just be an MLG I would watch!

also hopefully these battle islands will bring swimming into the game.

and also, this was just a thought.... what if they put in a overhaul on the maps like indar that add moar water in the centre of the maps.

Maaaan... wish I had a job that allowed me to actually attend these events.

Over worked, underpaid. Story of my life.

Your understanding is correct. I'm paraphrasing here but Higby talked about the BI's during E3 in which he basically stated they would be separate of major continents and included on the live servers available for everyone at anytime. Well, 2 factions at time. Eventually they have to add the game mechanics that allows a faction access to those battle islands. Most would like to see continent locking to for that. I'm thinking they may use the current mechanic were when one faction holds the majority of a continent it adds another button to select at the Warpgate terminal.

Oshur was only mentioned long long ago as a continent of it's own that will be added after Hossin and Searhus. That will bring us to 6 total Continents plus Battle Islands.
