I would like this questions to be answered by dev. team member, or someone who has actual knowledge of the game yet.


1- Will the game be taken in rounds or in only one continous battle?
I mean, The players will spawn at the same time in the match start. Then they die. They respawn intantly or only when all players die?

2- When will the players be able to change classes?
Between deaths/rounds or only between matches?

3- When will the players be able to change their class abilities?
Between deaths/rounds or only between matches?

1 - The default game mode is continuous. You respawn after a delay when you die. It is not fixed - we try to spawn teams in waves, so your respawn time will vary slightly depending on how recently your teammates died.

A single match is comprised of two rounds that last 10-12 minutes each. Both teams play each faction for one round, then they switch. The match winner is determined by overall performance across both rounds.

We are exploring alternate game modes that would function more like rounds (ala Counter-Strike) where you do not respawn until one team is completely eliminated.

2 - You can change classes when you die, and between rounds.

3 - You can change class abilities when you die, and between rounds.

Oh thanks, that surelly enlighten us a LOT! So the game will be really strategical... As you see the camper that killed your Turelim, You take a Razielim and kill him from above =P and lots of things like that... And it seems to be very dinamic too, as you can change classes AND abilities as you respawn...
