    Battle Royale is an epic 100-player brawl where the last Mobster standing wins! This is a real-time game mode where once you’re out, you’re out...at least until the next fight! Find loot, arm yourself, attack other Mobsters and see who takes home the big prize at the end. This is just you, 99 other Mobsters and seeing if you’ve got what it takes to survive; everyone starts on an even playing field so this is a true test of combat prowess!

    To join, Mobsters will need to front an entry fee of 5 FP. This goes into the winning pot at the end and will be split amongst the top finishers. Multiple games of Battle Royale will be running at the same time, so join a lobby and get ready to fight! Please make sure to read the entire document, as it will cover all aspects of Battle Royale gamplay!

    How to Play

    Core Battle Royale Actions

    These are the core actions you can take in Battle Royale. Keep reading below for greater detail of each of the following:

    • Fight opponents from list
    • Run Away when you are being attacked too much
    • Equip weapons and armor to get stronger
    • Repair weapons and armor to keep them strong
    • Restore Health to keep yourself alive
    • Restore Vitality to keep attacking

    Starting Equipment

    [​IMG]


    Once 100 players have joined a lobby, a Battle Royale game will start. Your stats from the main game will not carry over into the Battle Royale and as such all players will start on equal footing. At the beginning of the round, every player will have the following:

    500 Health Points
    3 MedKits
    50 Vitality Points
    0 Vitality Boosts

    You will not start with any Weapons, Armor or Vehicles, but you will find them as drops when you attack or kill other players or in the rare loot pinata.

    Attacking, Healing and Running Away

    The Battle Royale lobby will be represented as a list of other players similar to the regular Fight list. When you click on another player, you can Attack them using 1 Vitality Point. The more you click on a player, the more Vitality you use and your damage will start to add up!

    Once a player reaches 0/500 Health Points, they are dead and are removed from the Battle Royale match.

    If you are being attacked, you have two options:

    Once you are under 500 HP you can use a MedKit to heal back up to 100% of your Health. In addition to the 3 starting MedKits, you can purchase up to 5 more from the interface, or you can also find them when attacking/killing other players.

    The other option is to use a Runaway action which costs 10 Vitality. This makes it so you can’t be attacked by any other player for a short duration. Be warned though, if you attack another player during the Runaway countdown, you will no longer be Evading and are open to attacks again! You can’t Runaway again until the 3 minute cooldown finishes. Higher level Vehicles will allow you to run away for slightly longer durations, but the cooldown always stays the same.

    Attacking and Evading both use Vitality, which is in the status bar above your Items beside your Health. Once you are below 50% Vitality, you can use a Vitality Boost to restore 50%. You can buy additional MedKits (up to 5) and more Vitality Boosts from the Battle Royale interface, but be warned! Unless you are Evading, this action leaves you open to being attacked by others! You will also passively regenerate 1 Vitality Point every 3 seconds.

    Be warned that the Battle Royale is no place for idleness! While players who are actively attacking or evading are safe, anyone who has not made an attack in 10 seconds will have a Health-draining poison effect applied and this can kill you! Resume attacking again for the poison to be removed.

    Equipping and Repairing Items

    [​IMG]


    As you play Battle Royale you will find Weapons, Armor and Vehicles as loot drops from attacking and killing other players or opening the loot pinata by attacking it. These weapons are used in Battle Royale only and do not stay in your inventory when a round is finished.

    All items come in three strength ranks denoted by both the background behind the item and the item’s Mark - Mk I, Mk II or Mk III - with Mk III being the strongest. Weapons will allow you to deal more damage while Armor will mitigate some of the damage you take. Vehicles will allow you to evade attacks for slightly longer amounts of time. Vehicles will equip themselves automatically, but Weapons and Armor need to be equipped manually.

    As you use Weapons and Armor by attacking and defending respectively in the Battle Royale, their condition will deteriorate and they will eventually break! Make sure to repair your stronger items to keep them in functioning form by using Favor Points.

    Every once and a while a loot pinata will appear in the fight list! The first player to defeat the pinata will be granted all of the high-quality loot inside of it, so keep your eyes peeled for these rare appearances.

    How to Win and Playing Again

    Battle Royale matches will go until all but one of the participating Mobsters have died and to the top 10 finishers go the spoils! Battle Royale prizes include:

    Favor Points!
    Unique Season Item Reward for First-Place Winners only!
    Battle Royale Loot Cases that can drop on Kills!

    If and when you’ve been eliminated from a Battle Royale lobby, the fight isn’t over! The Battle Royale event will run over the course of a day and during that time any number of 100-player lobbies will be running so queue up again and take another shot at being the best of the best.

    Hey all,

    We'll be running a Battle Royale session tomorrow, October 1st, from 10 am Pacific to 3 pm Pacific. Here's a quick list of what is changing for this event, so you can get ready to hit the ground running!

    - 2 Favor Point buy-in
    - Reduced Health of the Pinatas
    - Increased spawn rate of the Pinatas

    A couple quick notes for our new Battle Royale players and returning veterans! Equipping items is the best way to protect yourself and deal more damage, so as you play the Battle Royale make sure to check your inventory below the playing screen to see if you've grabbed any items.

    Click on the items to equip them, and check their status occasionally to make sure they're still in fighting shape. Any item that displays a red 0% underneath it is broken, and has lots its attributes. You can either Repair these items for 5 FP or equip new ones.

    Additionally, purchasing MedKits doesn't automatically apply them. You still have to use a MedKit from your stockpile to regain that Health.
