    [MOBA] Pixel Arena | MMO Arena Game - Choose your Tribute!



    Pixel Arena is a new game that a small team and I have been developing for the past few months! We're using our favorite nostalgic game engine and we've been updating it and adding to it consistently finally giving us a final product! We are proud to announce the release of Pixel Arena!

    _____________________

    What is Pixel Arena

    Pixel Arena is a PVP based MMORPG. I'd say its a mix between Pokemon (graphically), Maplestory (socially) and PubG (FFA PVP) with elements of common MMORPGs. You start off by picking your tribute, we currently have 11 to choose from and we release more every week! Each with new mechanics and playstyles that help our players enjoy the game more! After you find one that you enjoy, you'll be emerged into the game where you could do a few things such as complete the tutorial, spend time in the Social Hub meeting new people, playing competitive PVP-only games or joining our premier hub, ARENA mode. This is a mode where you'll be transported into an arena with a base where you can heal or purchase items, once you venture out you'll be exploring the arena, farming creatures and collecting gear to increase your power! However; what makes this so interesting is that the entire arena, aside from the base, is open pvp! Killing another player will grant a powerful currency known as Spirit Gems, you can purchase special items from the Gem Shop in the base that will help you succeed in your goal of being the victor of the arena!

    There are systems in the game such as alchemy, forging and enchanting that help players upgrade their gear or collect potions. You'll automatically be given 2 spells at the start of the game and receive another ULTIMATE spell at level 5! The arena also has arena bosses which are stronger creatures that drop powerful gear and key fragments. Once you think you're strong enough, you can challenge the World Boss: Osyx, God of Pixels. Defeating him will grant you victory over the arena! We have a fun ranked mode that will grant you points upon winning an arena game, grind points and become the strongest player on the server! Will you hunt weaker players to gain an advantage and scale into the late game? Or will you play passively, gathering powerful gear and plan an attack on strong players once you're built? Play however you enjoy!

    Tribute Information

    There are three tribute types, each one is meant to fulfill a desired playstyle. Find a tribute type you enjoy and master that type! The tribute types we currently offer are as follows:

    Guardians:

    Guardians are tributes who are known for their powerful defense and utility. They have the choice between using a mace and a shield to increase their defenses or a glaive to increase their range and power. They are often great duelists once they can close a gap and have offer great utility spells, such as Ilra, the Alchemist who can forge potions and combat blink to enemies or Lio, the Lycan who can transform to increase his stats based on his matchup. Players who enjoy guardians as a type usually enjoy feeling unkillable and like getting up in the face of your enemies. Guardians are considered one of the strongest tribute types for PVE against hoards of creatures because of their resilience to damage.

    Assassins:

    Assassins are tributes who scale well into the late game but often have a weak early game. They have the choice between using a dagger and an armguard to increase their attack speed and defense or a bow to increase their range and safety. They usually have a hard time consistently closing a game but can deal large amounts of damage if they catch an enemy out, such as Shy, the Lunatic who is a combo based assassin with a powerful execute finisher or Des, the Bloodbound who obtains his legendary Bloodblade upon reaching a certain level. Players who enjoy assassins typically enjoy high risk, high reward situations and love dealing burst damage. Assassins are considered one of the fastest bossers because of the raw DPS they're capable of outputting.

    Mages:

    Mages are tributes who have a generally very safe playstyle as their spells have long range that can go over walls. They have the choice between using a spellsword and spellshield to increase their defenses and spell damage or a staff to increase their basic attack range. Mages aren't good at close quarters combat but can often get a few spells off before the gap is closed and usually have some form of utility to help them survive, such as Rae, the Blinkmage who can teleport to her own dimension at any point in the game or Mora, the Cursed who can polymorph enemies into sheep, preventing them from casting spells. Players who enjoy mages often also enjoy playing safe, smart and kiting out enemies into your ranged spells. Mages are considered one of the safest tribute types for PVE against creatures and bosses because their ranged abilities often completely prevent them from taking damage.

    It's worth noting that weapon types and tributes aren't pre-decided strictly. Under the right conditions, if you want to be an Assassin and use spellswords, feel free! We love encouraging creativity and we can't wait to see how the meta forms as more players join!

    Re: [NEW] Pixel Arena | MMO Arena Game! - Choose your Tribute! - Hiring GMs!

    If this isn't an existing MMO, which genre is this? Please use that rather than [NEW] for the thread tag.

    I'm also unable to find any screenshots. Please add some in-game screenshots to your advertisement, as we require by the section rules. At least one of these screenshots has to show an admin character displaying the message "Hello RaGEZONE!".

    Then threads in this section should only be made for the purpose of advertisement. I removed the recruiting part of your ad. If you want to hire staff, please see our Team Recruitment section here: Team Recruitment

    You have 24h to add the screens and change the tag, otherwise the thread will be removed. Thanks.

    Re: [MOBA] Pixel Arena | MMO Arena Game - Choose your Tribute!

    It was made in XtremeWorlds, the website for the engine went offline last year and there is basically no support for it at all. You could find a few basic tutorials on Youtube but nothing too advanced.

    Luckily, we've managed to teach ourselves quite abit about the programming for the engine (its pretty easy stuff) and there lots left un-explored. We just learned how to manipulate targeting less than a week ago, so we can only improve from here. I used to make fun little 13-year-old-esque MMORPGs in the engine back in the day, but the engine has much more potential if you actually know how the coding works :P
