The battlebots are located in E'siris, at the cellar.
You can access it by going down at the *'s in the E'siris map,
where the fountain is located.
The battlebot arena is free for all and for anyone to use. The only
thing you can lose is time.
Your age, experience, gear or boons do not matter. The battlebots
are player controlled machines operated with steam, and they clash
in an arena.
The goal of the fight is to get from your base to the other,
depending on which side you're on. You can only move towards the
other side and you cannot pass an opposite player if you end up
close to each other. You need to fight it out. When you reach the
other side, you automatically score a point to your side. Any side
gaining the required amount of points wins.
At the entrance of the bot arena sits the vendor itself, giving
advice and also keeping up the team score tables.
You can create or join a battlebot team, it's completely free.
The perk of belonging to a battlebot team is that you get to fight
The ranked fights are like the normal fights, with the exception
that each kill and goal will score you 'tokens'. You can use these
tokens at the entrance to buy buffs.
When the season finishes the best players of the best team are
selected and given a challenge trophy. The trophy is a miniature
battlebot which keeps you company. It will enhance your best
qualities even more, and will aid you occasionally. This bot is
yours to keep or do whatever you wish. But when the next season
ends, the trophy moves on (unless you're one of the winners again).
To learn how to fight, just go to the arena, sign up and start the
tutorial ('tutorial start' when you're at the cockpit).
You can use the 'battlebot' channel to chat with others, and the
'lfb'-tool to setup fights/inform other teams you want to clash.
RANKED FIGHTS AND SCORING
A ranked fight is a fight between two registered 'teams'. You can
fight a certain amount of ranked matches per day. From ranked fights,
you earn points for your team, and tokens from your personal kills
and goals. If the fight is unranked, no points or tokens are given.
Each season lasts a preset time, and at the end of the season winners
are announced and a next season will start some time after that.
You can check your scores and other info with the 'team' and 'myinfo'
commands at the entrance.
The rules are:
* Maximum players on each side is five (5), minimum is one (1)
* Every participant must belong to a team and each side must consist
players of the same team
* You get one (1) token per goal and kill, and each goal gives your
team one (1) point.
* Whoever wins the fight, gets points equal to the members in the fight.
i.e. if the fight is 3vs3, the winning team gets 6 points
* You can fight only a preset times per day. The count is team-wide,
* If the fight takes longer than 20 minutes, the team with the most score
wins. If it's a draw, then no additional points are given.
* The minimum score you need to win is 3, it cannot be set lower.
* REMEMBER to set the mode 'ranked' when starting, otherwise no points
Ranked fights are available when the season is on. The season is started
approximately every 2-3 weeks, and it lasts from 3-5 days.
Check the vendor at the arena entrance, and expecially the topics:
configuration, fighting, faq, changelog and goal.
