Today in gaming: Yitien Chronicles is an online MMORPG from Reality Squared Games -- they guys who brought you Wartune and Broken Realm -- that is supposed to launch it's beta test tomorrow. But I found out that tomorrow is now today! If you're a big fan of leveling up your character, then this might be for you. It's an Asian-inspired theme and you have to go around helping out the villagers with their problems and combat ninja ambushes with your pet panda.
This game is interesting for several reasons. The one that struck me the most was The Grove of Valor -- a PvP event that happens every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 8:15 PM -- I think that's EST, but no confirmation. You get 20 lives. Players get together and start attacking one another. A successful victory will earn you two points while a loss will earn you only a single point. Whoever is left standing at the end is declared the winner.
