Choose your legend for each match.
DCUO PvP is good, but combine that with the game's unique ability to play as legendary characters from DC Comics, and you have a winning combination that every player should check out. Unlock the Batman, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Robin, Bane, Huntress, or Arkham Asylum Joker and play as these iconic characters. Once you've picked your skin, you can queue up for mini-games that take you into some very cool venues such as the Batcave and Arkham Asylum that pit two or more players against each other. Just like in the arena matches, you can earn tokens that allow you to buy some of the best items in game to become even stronger as your chosen hero or villain.
Unlocking the legends is more of a trick. You will get some in game as rewards to get you started and then it is a matter of earning your legends or buying them. It does seem that it is possible to collect all of the legends that currently show available and I suspect that more will be incoming after launch through more methods such as purchase rewards and possibly available through the marketplace.
Top tip: All legends are NOT created equal. You may enjoy playing Batman for aesthetic purposes, but you may find that you click better technically as another legend. Gather as many of these bad boys (and girls) that you can and try them all! Word on the street is that some are clearly more powerful than others (something that will likely be constantly changing), so you'll want to know who can do what.
Now that you know the PvP basics, be sure to jump in game on launch day, January 11th 2011, to make good use of this info by unleashing your mad skills on unassuming players. Remember, even if you can't win, you can still have fun trying.
