Classic MMORPG DOFUS is celebrating its 15th anniversary this week. The festivities begins with the new Temporis server launching today. As it sounds, these are DOFUS Celebrates 15th Anniversary With New Temporis Servers.
For this year’s third edition, we’re reinventing the Temporis servers and offering DOFUS players an all-new community and competitive experience to enjoy with their friends: joining one of the two enemy cities of Bonta or Brakmar to do battle with the rival nation. Only one of them will emerge victorious from this battle, which will last for several weeks and yield rewards for every member of the winning nation!
Throughout all of Ankama’s games, Bonta has always represented the forces of Good, while Brakmar is the city of Evil. Their rivalry has continued through the ages, from their founding right down to today, ranging from simple sporting competitions to bloody and devastating wars.
For the first time, the concept of alignment that we all know and love from roleplaying games will play a part in this event: players can join the Good or Evil nation… or even register as mercenaries to sell their services to the highest bidder, allowing them to earn additional rewards right away! Players will have individual and group objectives, and can check their own individual scores and their nation’s score on real-time leaderboards.
The event includes both PvM (Player vs. Monster) and PvP (Player vs. Player) components. Through PvM, players help their own city to advance, while PvP serves to slow the opposing city’s progress. When a player is defeated after an alignment battle, they are sent to the enemy faction’s prison with a real-time sentence. Players will have several different ways to get out, such as serving out their sentence, being freed by allies, or even bribing the guards! Finally, players will collect kamas, a virtual currency, throughout the adventure, which they can then donate to their city in order to contribute to the war effort and help their side come out on top.
