Troy Online presents a Preview of the Open Beta
ALT1 Games did a internal test to prepare their open beta test. Troy Online
have done significant changes that make the open beta better than the
closed beta test, such as enhanced graphics and a common battle zone for
both Trojans and Greeks.
There were 5 major updates:1. New honor point items: During the closed beta
test, there were just two items that could be bought with honor points,
so the points were essentially worthless. However, the open beta test
will have additional items that can be bought with honor points and
will allow players to accumulate guild points through PVP as well.
Users can collect honor points through battle or hunting monsters.
2. Enhanced graphics due to an updated game engine:
Troy Online’s graphics during the closed beta test weren’t worse than
most other MMORPGs but the overall color was a bit dusky and could be
improved on. There’s a clear improvement in the graphics with the
updated game engine.
3. Additional War Zones: This is the most impressive
update. Any character over level fifteen can enter a special war zone
and compete for their faction. Either faction can win the right to hunt
special monsters with unique items.
4. Battlefield-related tuning: Throughout the closed
beta test, users submitted many different opinions about the battle
system. Based on these opinions, there are a few changes, such as
increasing the number of portals from the waiting room to the actual
battlefield, giving no rewards to players who idle in the waiting room,
and slight tweaks in the map design. Even though the battlefields are
not perfect, it’s good that they’re trying to improve the game.
5. Faction character creation limit and balance adjustments:
Troy Online’s core content is in the battlefields so they’ve tried to
fix the balance problems between the factions and classes. In the open
beta, ALT1 Games has put a character creation limit on both factions.
Both tier 1 and 2 classes have had balance adjustments.
The internal test only went on for three hours so it was hard to
check all the updated contents, but the graphics and the battlefields
are much better now. Anyway, if you participated in the last closed beta
test, it will be fun to find out what’s different in the open beta.
