For the second year in a row, “Atlantica Online” has been selected as the official game of the Game&Game World Championship 2009. Considering that GNGWC has only been active for a grand total of four years, this is quite the honor. GNGWC is a competition meant to pit the best in the world against the best in the world but also to really promote the Korean online game market to a more international audience.
The reason “Atlantica Online” has been selected over the numerous other possibilities is fairly simple: the design of its PvP combat system. PvP is actually a turn-based tactical battle system that makes it unique to the genre, and allows more chess-inspired maneuvering and less massive amounts of clicking hoping that you started your spell before the opponent did. The new addition of 100vs100 tactical battles is also a huge plus. All said and done, “Atlantica Online” is a solid title for gaming competitions like the GNGWC, and if you haven’t tried it yet now may be the time.
