A lot of people ask the same questions about battlefield so I made a small guide for people who are new to battlefield.
What is battlefield?
It is basically a king of the hill type of game. The goal is to get as much points as possible. When you get 10,000 fame pts you can buy a fame box from the battlefield npc, which contains a random chance at a godly item.
In game, the starting time says 08:00 and 20:00. This time is Pacific DST (daylight savings time), California time. My battlefield time used to be 11am/11pm (3 hours ahead of california time). Now it is 10am/10pm because we turned our clocks back an hour and the game didn't. Time in phillipines is 11am/11pm.
Number of battlefields
There are 4 battlefields at one time. You get randomly put in one.
How to play?
In king of the hill type games, you usually have to hold on to some object and stay in an area as long as you can while people try to kill you. In battlefield, said object is being in valkyrie mode.
Three ways to become valkyrie.
- Destroy one of six emperiums on the map.
- Kill someone that is in valkyrie mode.
- Become randomly selected for valkyrie mode.
Valkyrie mode lasts 2 minutes from the time you destroy the emperium. If you kill someone in valkyrie mode you inherit their timer. Sometimes you will kill someone and lose valkyrie mode 1 second afterwards.
In valkyrie mode you gain 1 pt each tick when you are not on one of the two bases. A tick is every 5 seconds, that is when the game updates the score. The main base in the middle gives you 10 pts per tick. The top smaller base gives you 5 pts per tick. If you are in blue valkyrie mode (your wings are blue), your rate of pts are double. So it becomes 2 pts each tick not on base, 20 pts per tick main base, and 10 pts per tick smaller base on top.
Other ways you can gain pts is by killing people obviously, but the pts are different depending on who you kill. You can get between 1-8 pts depending on the lvl of the person you killed (data table is below). The score you gain by killing is called "Defeat" in game. This is your "Kills" score at the end of the battlefield btw. Record is overall points and fame is overall minus points lost from death.
You also get a bonus for killing people in valkyrie mode. Based on my observation, it is 5 pts for killing normal valkyrie and 10 pts for killing blue valkyrie. This score is called "Trainees killed" at the ending scoreboard. I basically counted # of normal and blue valkyries I killed to come up with that. That and the trainees killed is always in multiples of 5.
You can lose 1-8 pts when you die depending on your lvl. Evitte did all the hard work of figuring out how much pts you gain and lose depending on the enemy's or your lvl.
Kill someone (their lvl)
71 to 80 = 8 pts
61 to 70 = 7 pts
51 to 60 = 6 pts
41 to 50 = 5 pts
31 to 40 = 4 pts
21 to 30 = 3 pts
11 to 20 = 2 pts
1 to 10 = 1 pt
The same bracketing applies to losing points when you get killed. You lose points based on your level. So this is constant depending on your level. Before hitting 71, I lose 7 pts only and gain 7 pts when I donate fame. Now I'm 71, if I die, I lose 8 pts and gain 8pts for donating fame.
You can go negative too. Sometimes I start the game off badly and die 3 times in a row and get -24pts. Nothing like playing catchup to get you going. O.o
There are four warp portals on the map, one in each corner. When you enter one you have a random chance of appearing at one of the four warp portals. Yes, you can end up exactly where you are if you enter one. I have died that way a few times. It makes for a decent escape most times. The wait is pretty long though. A nice tip is that you can touch the portal and start the loading bar, but you do not have to stand on it for the whole time. You can run somewhere else and when it is done loading you will be ported to one of the four warp portals.
Scoring at the end
Trainees defeated: Pts for killing valkyries.
Kills: Pts for killing people.
Training: I think this is the # of pts you get as valkyrie when you are not on base.
Base Taken: Pts you gained for being on base as valkyrie.
Overall points: Just total of all the points.
Fame points: Overall points - total penalties for dying.
For each battlefield session:
#1 - 2 gold ingot
#2 - 1 gold ingot
#3 - 10 gold coins
Everyone else gets 2 gold coins for participating.
When you get 10,000 fame pts you can buy a fame box. This box gives you a random chance of a bravery weapon. There is also a rare chance of getting a valkyrie box. Valkyrie box gives you a random chance of a valkyrie accessory. The chance of a valkyrie box is pretty low, maybe 10%? Not enough data yet.
The weapons have a low and high ATK/MATK version. The high version is much rarer. The two stats you get on the weapon is random, most of the stats have a low and high version. Some don't and are just flat. Rovu.info has a list of all the possible combinations. http://rovu.info/sho...&bonus=0&trade=
