Albion Online Date: May/06/17 14:05:42 Views: 2346

Arguably, Hellgates are an intrinsic feature of Albion Online, it can combine with PvP and PvE. For some brave adventurers, they can be allowed to enter them by taking down demonic monsters in the open world. In fact, the real danger comes from other players that may enter the same Hellgate, owing to all Hellgate portals in the world are connected. 

 

 

Commonly, Hellgates have been widespread acclaimed, at the same time, they are a great source for intense PvP fights. Concerning the main issues Hellgates currently, there are related to teams dodging fights or pulling mobs to gain an unfair advantage in fights. Today, let's us take a look at Hellgate Design Goals and New Hellgate Map.

 

Hellgate Design Goals

Hellgates are about PvP.

Camping the opposing team’s entrance should not be a valid strategy.

Mobs should play no, or a very limited, role in deciding who wins the PvP fight.

Hellgate strategy should not be affected by artificial game mechanics such as timers.

Mobs should act as sources for loot and as a time buffer that allow a second team to join the Hellgate before it is finished.

Dodging the opposing team should not be possible. At the same time, there needs to be a legitimate way out of the Hellgate if something unexpected happens, for example: your healer disconnects.

 

New Hellgate Map

The new Hellgate map is shaped like a pentagram, with a circular path connecting the corner pieces. Each corner of the pentagram is a possible entrance. Which of the five entrances a  team enters through is decided at random, which means it is impossible for the first team to know where the second team will show up and gate camp.

 

There will be very few trash mobs, and those that are on the map can be leashed easily. This has been done to fulfill the second design goal: making sure that PvE does not play a significant role in the Hellgate PvP fights.

 

Currently, Hellgates are connected globally, what this means is that a team entering from a yellow zone could be matched against a team entering from a black zone. according to the zones that gamers choose to enter, and now Hellgates was being changed, yellow zones, green zones as well as red, black zones.
