RingWatch: EPX Season 2 Recap

Another battle for The Ring of Ruin has completed… yet we find ourselves back at the beginning of the battle.

The paradox continues, as the actions of Karls and Shakram echo through time itself in the never ending battle. That all ends in Elysium are also beginnings doesn’t have to be a curse… another chance to rise to the call of battle is here! Will you succeed this season where you failed before? Will you rise to the occasion and master time itself… along with the future of Elysium?

Welcome Mercenaries, to the conclusion of Season 2!

Alex: I, for one, welcome more battle. This cannon isn’t just for show, you know?

Torsten: Wha– how did I get here again?! I know I defeated you this time Alex… during the final battle for the ring!

Alex: No… not me. Probably just another impersonator. You see, I’m quite popular on account of how utterly gorgeous I am. Bwahahahahahah!

Torsten: …

Alex: At any rate, people aren’t here for just my chiseled good looks… let’s get to the results of Season 2!

Conquest: The Victorious

This season, the three different Conquest events were vicious. S12 took home the title this season, but with so many Captains catching their stride after the first season, strategy was cohesive and nuanced for many guilds. Competition was fierce, but the following players rose to the top repeatedly to dominate the leaderboards!

  1. Firstblood
  2. Nandoca
  3. Win
  4. KingNerd
  5. Goodnight

Most Powerful Captains

Conquest is one thing, but a Captain’s overall power relies less on their allies and more on their long-term strategy and organization throughout the season. The following Captains built their empires up to staggering heights, inspiring fear in their enemies across Elysium!

  1. PalafinHF
  2. Firstblood
  3. KingNerd
  4. Win
  5. Burgundy

Arena Victors

The Arena is not conquest. In Arena battles, your Mercenaries have no soldiers to hide behind. The raw power of your lineup and your strategy in battle reign supreme, and only the most diligent and dedicated Captains have what it takes to dominate the competition. 

  1. PalafinHF
  2. Firstblood
  3. Melio_das
  4. Kazuto1995
  5. Nandoca

Most Honorable Mentions

The following Captains were the only ones to finish in the top 10 in all season rankings!!!

  • PalafinHF
  • Firstblood
  • Win

Season 3 Is Live!

Season 3 is officially live. If you haven’t started building your empire yet, what are you waiting for!?

Behold! The Doombringer!

This season there’s tons of new features to look out for… new Mercenaries, new ways to rack up DPP, and the long anticipated Doom Bringer guild raids!

This season goes through April 30th. If you haven’t started rallying your forces yet, there’s still time to get a great start in your quest for glory!

Caption: Season 3 brings the all-new Mercenary Wang to the battle!

The Paradox Continues

Alex: So… big plans this season, Torsten?

Torsten: Yeah… I’m going to find the real you, and punch him repeatedly until–

Alex: Hey, that’s great buddy. I’m sure you’re going to have a lot of fun with that.

Torsten: How can you possibly be so annoyi –

Alex: And that’s all the time we have. Time to play us out, mysterious disembodied voice!

Thanks Alex. We hope every Captain out there – win or lose – had tons of fun in Season 2. Season 3 is going to have even more epic battles and more ways to play…

We’ll see you at the battle for the ring!

RingWatch: Season 1 Recap

The battle for The Ring of Ruin has wrapped up, and what a battle it was! Check out the first hall of fame inductees and highlights from the S1!

Alex: Hello all you Mercenaries out there and welcome to RingWatch… your place to get caught up on the latest news in Elysium!

Torsten: Hi

Alex: Ehhh…don’t go overboard on the introduction or anything Torsten… 

Torsten:…

Alex: Well at any rate friends, there’s been an awful lot going on for us to cover! 

Torsten: nods

Alex: The Ring of Ruin has stopped, but I wouldn’t worry too much.  In fact, I really never worry too much! Mwaeahahahaheehee!

Torsten: rolls eyes

Alex: Now the last 49-days of glorious battle, piracy and conquest in Elysium have been totally action-packed, and we hope every Mercenary out there had fun fighting for their lives.

Torsten: Speaking of… didn’t I defeat you in the battle for the Dimension Ruins? How are you even here?

Alex: Oh no, Torsten, surely not me. I only win battles. There are a great many Mercenaries who look like me I’m told. As you can see I have a very common face type.

Torsten: glares

Alex: And regardless– don’t ask me how – but I’m quite certain we’ll all be doing this exact same thing again very, very soon. dramatically Oh Pirate King… what have you done!?

Now let’s dive into some of the highlights from the battle for the Ring! Bwahahahahaheheheehee!!!

Conquest: The Victorious

There were many epic battles spread across all three conquest events throughout the season. We’d like to offer a special congratulations to the top five finishers overall from season 1:

  1. Chuckz
  2. Ewod
  3. Goodnight
  4. Nezumi
  5. KingNerd
Laction runs about 40,000 km/min to take the ruin.
This footage is not sped up. That Laction is in a HURRY!!!

Most Powerful Captains

Captains build their might in many ways over the course of the season, but most all of that can be summed up in raw Battle Power. Through all the battle and chaos, the following Captains excelled above all others at raising their total power in Elysium:

  1. PalafinHF
  2. OoKoO
  3. Kazuto1995
  4. Lock-On
  5. Firstblood

Arena Victors

The Arena is entirely unlike field battles. Here, there are no troops to hide behind and your mercenaries must fight to the bitter end. Over all Arena competitions this season, the following Captains amassed the most Arena Victory Points:

  1. PalafinHF
  2. Hebisakki
  3. Win
  4. Chuckz
  5. Kazuto1995

Honorable Mentions

The following two players were the only Captains to finish in the top 10 in all three categories:

  • PalafinHF
  • Chuckz
Shoutout to this mysterious team that definitely isn’t S12 😉. This brilliant move made it incredibly hard to find rally leaders among their team to strike back against, helping lead them to a win in the 3rd Conquest!

 -OoKoO-

“OoKoO only hit me 37 times last night!”

The Eternal Fight

Another season of glorious battle is on its way in only a few hours. Will you take the lessons from this season and rise to greatness in the battle to come?

Alex: I’m sure they’ll try, but not if my cannon has anything to say about it.

Wait… your part is done. Where’d you come from?

Alex: I told you there was some weird stuff going on inside that ring. It would seem the fight is not yet done. BWUAHAHAAAHEEHEHE!!! See you on the battlefield!

Indeed, the battle continues! Elysium’s Mercenaries are trapped in the eternal battle for the Ring of Ruin, but perhaps this time it will end differently.

We’ll be back in the next few days to sum up everything exciting about season 2, but for right now, be prepared for the unexpected when the server opens in a few hours!
