Read on for the list of titles awarded for participation in Arena Champions combat!

    Titles for Wins

    * the Contender - 100 wins
    * the Triumphant - 500 wins
    * the Victorious - 1000 wins

    Titles for Kills

    * the Combatant - 500 kills
    * the Assailant - 1000 kills

  • For Lord of the Rings Online Screens Go Here This world is so rich and vibrant. I've come to love the colorful WoW type graphics rather than the realistic brand. They tend look a little washed out. So anyway take a look at the new screens and then....

  • Gamespot had the chance to interview "Lord British" and got some great tidbits on his thoughts of the industry and why he thinks that Tabula Rasa is going to break the traditional MMO boundaries.

    S: Looking at the previous inductees to the Hall of Fame, pretty much all of them are still very active. At the same time, though, the Hall of Fame induction in most fields is kind of a career retrospective. I'm wondering if you worry or concern yourself at all that maybe your largest impact upon the industry has already been made.

    RG: That thought has at least crossed my mind, and, interestingly, I don't think so. And the reason why I don't think so is because Ultima Online wasn't that long ago. You could have made that argument previous to Ultima Online.

    I substantially believe that Tabula Rasa, the game I'm working on right now, is a dramatic departure from all other [massively multiplayer games] that have come before and will revitalize this segment again.

  • Sony put up a new Character Progression Dev Article on the EverQuest 2 page. I don't play the game anymore but reading it was quite interesting.

    Players now select their profession at character creation instead of moving from archetype to class to subclass. For example, you can choose to play a Wizard at character creation. When you arrive in the world, you will be a Wizard--not a Mage. Distinct spells and arts designed for each profession are now given immediately in place of the more generic archetype and class versions. You are a member of your final profession right away instead of waiting 19 levels to do so.

    Some of the previous class and subclass quests still exist, but they are not required to progress in your chosen profession and will no longer restrict your level growth. Existing characters that were at the archetype or class level will be prompted to choose a profession before logging into the game. Existing spells and arts will be replaced (at the same quality level) by the new profession-specific abilities.

    Well what do you know? Evolution at it's best.

  • Will unsupervised ankle-biters make it into your MMOG?



    Will an Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) rating of "Mature" help keep kids out of Lord of the Rings Online and other MMOGs? And, perhaps more to the point, should it?

    I’ve found that gamers come in all varieties, and age has nothing to do with maturity. I’d much rather deal with 10 pre-teen kids who accidentally KS my giant bats in the newbie zone than one 23-year-old griefer who repeatedly trains my group for kicks. I’ve grouped with very young gamers who play with skill and wisdom. Then again, I’ve grouped with 20-something gamers whose antics could’ve easily landed them a spot on MTV’s Jackass.

    Read Shalayn's editorial at the Ten Ton Hammer Lord of the Rings Online community site and decide for yourself!

  • Does a mild winter have you crying in your snow boots?

    Get your snow and frost fix from the folks at Ten Ton Hammer's EverQuest II Community Site! Deep in the snowy Norrathian land known as Everfrost, where the giant spiders and the Coca-Cola bears live, lies an enormous dungeon. This zone is home to the mighty dragon Vox and is crawling with angry Ice Giants. Why are they angry? It's freezing in there! You'd be mad too.

    As the story goes, the Lady Vox and the Lord Nagafen fell in love and wished to create a child of that love. It was forbidden that they mate, being dragons of opposing elements, and they were then imprisoned away from each other to keep a child from ever being brought to reality. The Lady Vox was imprisoned in the awe-inspiring caves of Permafrost, where she lived out the rest of her days, until her death, brought by one named the "Truthbringer", leaving her spirit behind to forever haunt her frozen kingdom. Her mate, Lord Nagafen was sent to Lavastorm and a good portion of the quests within these zones, brings to light their story.

    Savanja will be your tour guide as you experience all that Permafrost has to offer, only at Ten Ton Hammer EverQuest II community site!
