Battlestar Galactica Online News Update

This week we added several new features and updates to Battlestar Galactica Online.

The biggest update: Players can now challenge other players to private, instanced PvP matches (ranked battles or duels). In Ranked matches, the game’s matchmaking system will help pair players of similar Arena rating, ship size, and class, and let them battle it out in their own private piece of space.

Ranked matches enable pilots to determine who is the“Top Gun” on each server, and recognize the Top 100 on the Top Gun Leaderboard with special icons above their pilot and ship name.? Alternatively, players who wish to compete against other pilots of any faction (including their own), rating, ship size, or class can engage in 1v1 Duel matches, though no rewards or changes in rating will occur after winning/losing a match.

In addition, two new star systems have been added in the Veil Sector– Nilfhel and Muspell– containing high level NPCs for squadrons to conquer.? PvP notifications and blockade warnings will also begin appear on the star systems. As BSGO recently passed three million registered players, we’re excited to continue developing it.
