BattleMUD, a lightly seasoned stock-content realm, coming Friday, December 28!!!

Post by MiOw » Fri Dec 21, 2018 11:25 am

We have a little more than one week to go until the launch of the new BattleMUD realm on ClassicMUD BBS. True to form, this will be a "lightly seasoned" stock content realm where every player is allowed a single verified (Friend class) account for PVP play. Non-verified (Stranger class) accounts have full access to the PVE realm but are unable to train beyond level 5 in either of the PVP realms.

The new realm has many small tweaks and adjustments, many that may be described as "annoyingly sensible", to promote low- to mid-level game play. All known bugs, glitches, and "cheap" fast start tactics have been addressed. The board is running out of an Amazon Web Services datacenter on a paid-for server instance and is arguably the fastest and most stable board out there. We have had no crashes or server disconnects since the board launched in November 2017. Full board backups are performed each night.

The new realm, titled BattleMUD PVP under option #2 in the BBS menu, will open for play after the 9:00PM EST cleanup on Friday, December 28. Your normal MegaMUD installation with the Winterhawk Path Update will be sufficient for play. Here are some of the juicy details that would be good to know about this realm...

- The realm will reset every six months on the last Friday of June and December
- PVP enabled @ +/- 9 levels with a 10% HP hang penalty, death at -30
- Lives will not be available for purchase in this realm
- The bash (31) ability is awarded along with smash (32) to combat classes when they complete Aldreth's quest
- Almost all bosses spawn within a 3 - 17 hour regen delay
- First-drops from bosses are not guaranteed, many item drop rates have been raised or lowered

The existing MajorMUD PVP and PVE, options #3 and #4 in the menu respectively, will continue under their permanent runs as intended. A GoBot user shares gossip channel activity between the realms over the auction channel.

New players wanting to verify their PVP account may send me a Facebook message directly - www.facebook.com/mowsinski

I highly recommend that ClassicMUD players join the Facebook group - www.facebook.com/groups/ClassicMUD

Here is the MME file for the realm - https://www.dropbox.com/s/vgnnkx8r3dei1 ... D.mdb?dl=0
*updated as of 12/21/2018 @ 11:00AM EST

The board address and port is bbs.classicmud.com 2323

There will also be a reset of Tournament - Legend of the Red Dragon during the morning of December 28. T-LORD days end at midnight so be sure to get your turns in, and remember to visit the (O)ther Places in-game each day as well!

This just might be the most anticipated launch we've done since ClassicMUD opened in December 2016. There have been more than 140 verified accounts created on the board. It just might be accurate to say that you will not find a larger collection of unique players anywhere if your thing is to play with other *people*.

I hope to see you there - we've worked hard on this one for you!

A link to the Update Log is now available, the player's best resource, exception being if you play in the current Classic realms, about what to expect in the new realm.
