    Looking for a less competitive and more Co-operative mode, but not the biggest fan of Colosseum battles?

    We've been digging away at a new experience with this week's new PVE adaptation of the Mining World Arena!​

    [​IMG]

    Work alongside your queue-mates in a team experience where the spoils are shared and the benefits of keeping your team-mates alive far outweigh the experience of watching them be overrun by horrendous enemy hoards, although you can always do that too.​

    Introduced with this mode is the Meteor Guide, a nifty tool that will point itself towards the nearest hunk of space matter whenever they fall among the sky isles.

    [​IMG]

    Be careful when navigating or digging, or have a friend watching your back, because whether you're looting a fallen meteor or navigating the depths of an island, danger will always be nearby. Lurking in the form of more dangerous and resilient mobs.

    If you manage to stave off the oncoming threats for the 15 minute game, you'll garner nearly all your resources, as well as a portion of the communal pool! (Based on your contribution.) The player with the largest contribution at the end of the game will be awarded an artifact!

    Leave early, and you'll forfeit most of your spoils!

    [​IMG]
    If you're stuck as the last remnant of a party of members who fled or ended up dead, the game timer will be cut short, allowing a new queue to start with fresh and hopefully more prepared miners.

    As time goes on in the round mobs will become progressively harder to deal with, make sure you and your party make the appropriate skill improvements before you're overwhelmed! Make sure to stick together, to help with this all players are spawned in a close vicinity at the beginning of the game. Moving as a pack is key!

    [​IMG]
    In this mode, killing mobs will reward you with 1 score per mob, similar to the player killing mechanics of Mining World's default PVP mode. Co-operate with your companions to down the violent throngs and improve your party accordingly.

    [​IMG]

    Alongside the new PVE Mode, Drop-Out is receiving a few pacing adjustments, as well as the inclusion of shrinking rings for games larger than 1 vs. 1's! Once a player has been eliminated from the game, the ring will progressively shrink in size, reducing your play area, and speeding up matches for those eliminated and waiting.

    Alongside the ring-drop changes, shovel cool-downs have been reduced and block re-spawn-time has been extended, all with the aim of making the mode more accessible and competitive. To compliment this, the cap of Drop-Out games you can play within a two hour period has also been increased to 11 from 3, so there's more opportunities to play with friends!

    i imagine this made it harder for people to prestige on low player servers since people probably rather play pve then pvp and because it easier to start a 0/5 then a 0/10.

    Show me all the suggestion threads you've personally made to enhance the server. I'll wait. These guys work hard, not to mention the fact they all were displaced due to Hurricane Irma. How about we show a little appreciation for what we do get!

    @Modicasa what have you done to help the server? So do you know how to code, or the complexity of it? Stop talking if you don't know what you are talking about. I still don't have power in Florida and the team is based there.

    In response to my "Other" choice - I think that more features should be added to improve islands and the overall experience for those who don't PVP often (though this PVE mode was a great step).
