With update 2.41, we wanted to add a one-on-one mode (1v1) for the Interserver Kolossium (ISK). Here are the details. Up until now, we've been reluctant about promoting 1v1 PvP, primarily for the following reasons: The difficulty in finding a satisfactory way of balancing this game mode. The risk of dividing players between too large a number of PvP modes and reducing the number of visits to the Kolossium (increased waiting times). We now have some potential answers to these problems and that's why we wanted to introduce a 1v1 Kolossium mode. We know that 1v1 PvP is a very important and passionate aspect of the game to some players. It offers quick-fire confrontations that bring out a single winner. This is also, theoretically, a more accessible activity because it doesn't require knowledge of the synergies between classes. How It Works The 1v1 Kolossium will work on the same basis as the other Kolossium modes. The player will be able to register for 1v1 mode and the matchmaking system will search for a suitable opponent and suggest that both players engage in combat. If they agree, they will then be teleported directly onto the fight map. 1v1 mode will have a specific ranking (like the two 3v3 solo and 3v3 team modes, which each have their own ranking) because characters vary greatly in efficiency in these game modes. Balancing Class balancing in 1v1 has always been problematic because of themarkedly different roles, abilities, and game mechanics between classes. It is our opinion that 1v1 PvP is currently the least balanced PvP experience. The abilities and game mechanics are so different that classes suffer a big "Nemesis”-type mechanic (class A may find it almost impossible to defeat class B, who has very powerful abilities to counter class A). To get around this issue, we're going to dynamically register the results of each class against the other game classes (by level groupings and in 1v1 only) so we can calculate class A's average chances of beating class B. This information will then be used by the matchmaking system to offer more balanced fights. For example, if characters from the Sadida class have a better chance of beating characters from the Iop class in 1v1, the matchmaking system will take this statistic into account and will look for a “less effective" Sadida character to go head to head against a “more effective" Iop character to compensate for this imbalance between the two classes and offer a fight in which, theoretically, both characters should have a 50% chance of winning. Waiting Time Since the introduction of the ISK, the number of people visiting the Kolossium has increased considerably and we think we will be able to introduce this 1v1 PvP mode without significantly reducing the number of people in 3v3 mode. It's difficult to predict how players who currently use 3v3 mode will to react to the arrival of 1v1 mode, but we know that some of our 1v1 mode fans don't play in the current 3v3 Kolossium mode. Their arrival will, therefore, increase the global Kolossium audience rather than reduce the number of players in 3v3 mode. We also plan to look into the feasibility of simultaneous registration for several game modes (1v1 and 3v3 solo) to allow players to "populate" several Kolossium waiting lines at the same time (as soon as a fight becomes available in either game mode, it will be offered to the player). This sort of feature isn't planned for the release of 1v1 mode; it's just a possibility we're looking into. Rewards 1v1 mode will offer the same type of reward as the classic Kolossium (experience, Kolossokens, and kamas). We would like players to be able to progress through the game and generate enough wealth to craft or buy equipment. However, the end-of-fight rewards won't be as good as those for 3v3 mode, because 1v1 fights generally don't last as long and because we want to encourage players to play in a team. Currently, we're planning to divide the rewards from 3v3 mode by two to get the 1v1 mode rewards, but we might increase these rewards depending on the average duration of the fights and the waiting time imposed. Maps Initially, 1v1 mode will use a specific Kolossium map, but over time, we plan to create a dedicated group of maps. Q & A When will 1v1 Kolossium be available? The 1v1 ISK should be available in beta form at the same time as the 2.41 beta version. However, this system is still at an experimental stage, and we can't guarantee that the 1v1 ISK will be available in the 2.41 final version. If results are satisfactory during the beta phase of version 2.41, we will integrate it into the 2.41 final version. Will a 1v1 ranking (leaderboard) be available on the official website? In the long run, we plan on adding a 1v1 ranking on the official website (as for the 3v3 modes), but we can't yet guarantee that it will be available in time for the 2.41 final version release. Are you planning to do any specific class balancing for 1v1? We think that the class victory ratio system is a better-suited solution to the 1v1 balancing concerns than implementing specific balancing. Is the ISK 1v1 going to replace the alignment attack system? We're not planning to prevent attacks on characters of other alignments, but we do eventually want to remove the honor points system, which is too full of errors to work correctly (it's too easy to circumnavigate and exploit). We think that a 1v1 Kolossium system will provide a much better 1v1 PvP experience, with a very large number of fights available, material rewards and experience to progress, much more balanced fights, and a much greater number of different opponents (thanks to the ISK). For us, it's also the opportunity to better pool our efforts for arena PvP. Will the class victory ratio system also be applied to 3v3 mode? Initially, this system will only be used and tested on the 1v1 Kolossium. If this system works well, we will look into the possibility of also allowing the 3v3 modes to benefit from it, but in a different way. We may consider using the victory rate of class pairs compared to other class pairs, so we can estimate the strength of the different class synergies. This is a very ambitious project from a technical point of view and it is not currently planned. But we are aware that it's a solution that is likely to improve the quality of Kolossium fights.
DofusExp posted a topic in Town SquareHi there! My name is Bryan and on my youtubechannel you will see a Dofus kolossium fight series every Wednesday and Saturday. I have provided the videos with awesome music for you guys to enjoy. Once in a while I'll upload a montage video of a random topic. I have played on the server Dark Vlad for about 7 years now. I have met beautiful people and that's why i want to thank them for playing with me. The best way I think to thank them is to make videos so they can watch them back in the future and look back on the amazing moments we had. I don't know if those video's will be up, when you read this. But they definitely will be there soon. Here is a channeltrailer Click Here! Thanks to WindowDV for shouting me out, check out his youtubechannel too and his twitchchannel ofcource :D DofusExp
So I applied for kolossium and got paired up with a level 170 cra,Ballistae and a level 129 eni, Sukii. Imagine my surprise when I noticed the eni had 3700 hp and decent stats! (11 ap, 6mp, along with decent resistances), and the cra wasn't too bad either! These two guys who spoke their own language during the whole fight managed to keep up with an enemy team of level 200s, even after I died. In the end we lost the fight, mostly because I got myself killed too soon, but it was still pretty awesome to see a level 129 kicking ass.
So ye, atm I've only got 2 chars with p2p left on them and I'm not gonna bother wasting millions on p2p'ing alts considering the amount I play atm.. So what does this mean?! Well, seeing as I only really tend to sign up to kolossium when I do manage to log, I have found myself unable to get fights due to the high rating (in comparison to the people who actually partake in kolossium) combination of my masq/fogr </3.. SO -lets get to the point- I am looking for a 3rd person (around the 150-190 range) to join my team so we can get a fight, and more importantly, get those daily wins for kolossoken's. I will guarantee you a win in kolossium (maybe more than 1 if I don't have others waiting to join the team) providing you catch me online and I am not already helping someone else.. That's about it I guess, let me know!
