Korean fantasy martial-arts MMO Blade & Soul is much more action-based than typical MMO and NCSoft is heavily supporting the PvP aspect with a large yearly tournament replete with cash prizes. This official annual world championship will open to west, before that we will see another Blade & Soul tournament at ESL on February 7th.
This Blade & Soul’s community 1on1 cups is under best of 3 single-elimination format. Everyone with level 15 or above can participate on the cup. The game uses a cross-server system, so anyone from any server can participate (on the cup corresponding to their region).
NCsoft’s martial art MMORPG Blade & Soul already launched on Jan 19 and the whole launch is fine expect the overloaded servers which NCsoft is working on expanding server capacity and adding new servers.
More specifically, the dev team is planning to add a series of events with the Mushin’s Tower coming first, which is a solo dungeon. Another dungeon they are planning to add focuses on the Bloodshade Harbor faction, with 6 players normal mode first and then adding the 4 player hard mode. Last they are adding a branching twenty four person instance called the Naryu Labyrinth which creates consequences for any path the players choose.
Later this year, Blade & Soul is going to have a new continent called the Silverfrost Mountains, which is also the first expansion and will bring level cap from 45 to 50. Also, the new class Warlock will be added too, later this year.
Above those content update, Blade & Soul is also going to explore the esport area. Players can compete in 1v1 or 3v3 mode. NCsoft did host a World Championship last year where Korea, China, Japan and Taiwan players got a chance to compete for a $40,000 prize pool. This year, NA and EU regions will be added in the event as well. Gea
