~PvP Tournament~
Next Saturday (20th), Life Forge Staff will be hosting a PvP Tournament at a currently undisclosed location. There will be 2 brackets to the tournament: Duel and Conclave.

The Winner of the Duel bracket will recieve an exclusive "Blood Wolf" mount, of which there are only currently 4 in the game. (purchased long before Steam)

The Winning Party of the Conclave bracket will recieve an exlusive in-game cosmetic cape, signifying your victory in the Conclave.

Duel Bracket~
Players fight to the death in a 1v1 arena to prove their power to the world.

Conclave bracket~
Two parties of 4 duke it out in the Conclave to see which party will reign supreme.

The Winners of both the Conclave bracket and the Duel bracket will recieve 10 Platinum.

The Event will require a 25k Gold admission fee. Members may participate for free.

~Upcoming Updates~
The coming updates will be launched as soon as they're finished as we don't want to make you all wait until Friday for more Bank Slots etc. These new "sporadic" updates will also include new content, but limited to the scope of what we already have established. We're gonna be focusing on polishing up what we have before upping the level cap, adding new higher level zones, etc.

Hey guys!

So, after viewing the update video (found HERE) we want to know YOUR opinions on where to take PvP in Life Forge!

Option A. Make new offshoot maps that are rich in resources, bonus gold drops, and maybe even bonus exp. These new maps will be PvP focused.

Option B. Put it back to what it used to be! Open PvP is part of Life Forge!
(for those of you new to Life Forge, first of all, welcome! Second of all: PvP used to be located on several main pathways maps such as almost all of the Duskin Desert and the Delga Jungle Caves)

Personally we're leaning towards Option A, but we look forward to hearing your thoughts!​
