Marin has created a Fairy Tail minigame that will run on its own server. This will be on a separate IP as well, so it won't be a part of the hub.
Basically, you can be a regular level mage for free, and fight people. It's going to be set up kind of like Mob Arena, if you're familiar with that. We're going to have multiple arenas of various types: lava, water, void, obstacles, and anything else we can come up with. The map will be purely adventure mode, with worldguard to prevent anything from being broken or placed by anyone. You will be able to interact with things, create teams and choose the arena you want to battle in.
Once a week we will have a tournament that will scale with the number of participants.
- Winners will be announced globally, and the winners of each round will be teleported to their next match once both combatants are done with their last round.
- You will be fully healed and given a 5 minute break before each round, just in case you have to use the bathroom or something.
- If you DC or take too long, the fight will start, and you will probably lose.
- There is no rematches or anything. First one to kill the other wins and advances.
- People found to be hacking will be permanently banned, no chance for coming back.
Character cards will be available for purchase for this minigame server. You can purchase all the cards and choose who you want to be before your match. During the tournament you will be able to switch magics, but as stated before, no rematches.
Tournaments will be held in these formats: 2v2, 4v4, 8v8, 16v16, 32v32, 64v64, 128v128, 256v256, 512v512, 1024v1024. Of course, the ones above 32v32 are for future use when we get a higher player base. Hopefully we can make this all automatic so they happen regardless. The rewards for each bracket will be as follows:
- 2v2: 250 Enjin Points
- 4v4: 500 Enjin Points
- 8v8: 750 Enjin Points
- 16v16: 1000 Enjin Points
- 32v32 1500 Enjin Points
- 64v64: 2250 Enjin Points
- 128v128: 3000 Enjin Points
- 256v256: 4000 Enjin Points
- 512v512: 5250 Enjin Points
- 1024v1024: 6500 Enjin Points
The enjin points will be usable towards FTMC and Fairy Tail Brawl (the minigame server). Now, the character cards will vary in price depending on who it is, and the level of power that card has. Admins from FTMC will not be admins on Fairy Tail Brawl, because Marin and I are going to set this up to be nearly 99.999% automatic. Any issues found on the server, like a hacker or something, just pop over to FTMC or message us on skype.
Another thing we're working on is a custom Team plugin. There will be able to be any number of teams, no more than 5 players per team. There won't be any friendly fire, exp should be shared by all in the team (within range of each other of course, no farming by high levels for a low level).
Now, I mentioned levels. This aspect isn't even alpha in nature, as I just started talking about things to marin. Basically, we're going to have the classic RPG idea for levels. However my version of this... won't be easy to level up. The first few levels won't be terribly hard, but as you level more and more, the exp needed will increase on a logrithmic scale, or exponential. Haven't figured that out just yet. Too tired atm to think hard enough on that portion. But we're going to incorporate mana and hp into levels, so as you level up, you get more hp and mana. Each class will also get varied levels of hp and mana, depending on the roll of the class. Tank, DPS, Support.
Stay tuned guys, FTMC is constantly evolving behind the scenes. You may not see anything for months, but don't think we're just sitting here doing nothing. Marin basically does all the hard work, the other admins and I basically do what we can to keep the server running and keep you all happy.. But lately I've started working more on the actual coding side of things, so I can help Marin. We're going to use a github to work together and help push things out faster.
I thank everyone for their support and love. You guys make it worth while. I'd be lost without all my players and friends. You guys are great.
