What are the multiplayer PvP games out there?

NS2 I knew about, I just didn't like it. The dynamic of the games is unnappealing, every match I've seen bored me to tears.

I've been looking quite a bit at Archeblade. It looks fun, but it looks really small scale. I'd play 2 out of 6 "maps" from what I've seen, 1 of which nobody plays apparently... the most played being small maps with no respawn - arena style. Hate that. I'll try it anyway but such a low variety of map might kill it very quickly. Also, ranged classes looks annoying as hell. They really should focus that sort of games more on melee combat.

New maps are on their way, should be some new ones at the end of october.

At the moment, Steam Canal and Under Siege Night are the no respawn maps, Under Siege (day), netherdale, and uh... i forget the name.... are respawn enabled. There are 2 free for all maps but I personally find free for all boring.

I hate FFA, too. I didn't play, I tried practice mode, the game seems empty right now, forget high ping servers, there was too few people, and only playing no respawn maps.

Gameplay looks rather simple minded and spammy. I'm dying for a game like Rakion, which is what Archeblade made me think of, but it ain't that. Well, at least it ain't -the most P2W game on Earth- like Rakion was.

It actually does play a lot like Rakion.

I'd say the big difference is that the block actually still stuns. Like, if your block is hit, you can't immediately drop it and hit back like you could in Rakion, the block will stay up.

The servers are always empty during the day, and only the north america servers seem to be functioning correctly right now.
Check back in a month.

If you like, add me as friend, I can show you how to play. There is a pretty crazy skill gap between rookie and pro. I'm only intermediate.

I'll consider giving it a bigger chance if it becomes anywhere near active enough.

Play Battlefield 2 or 2142. I prefer 2142 since you don't have to deal with jets, the class system is done better, and the future setting is siiick. 2 is for sure still alive, don't know about 2142.
