    "I didn't want to try this one at first because I thought it was totally overrated and the people I know who played this game either possessed or acquired an obnoxiously elitist attitude. Then I decided to try it just to see what all the hype was about and I must say, I'm glad I did! The game's PvP system is awesome and I even joined the best clan in the game and won too many games that I can count! This is the only game in the whole Playstore that can't be classes as casual because the amount of work, time, and effort has to put on it unlike Angry Birds and other crap games!!"

WHAT’S THE MEANING

In the parlance of massively multiplayer online video games, Player versus Player (widely known as PvP) is an interactive type of game between two or more live participants. It designed for gamers from all over the world to compete against other gamers. Another thing to know is the concept of AI or Artificial Intelligence, which are computer-generated non-player characters with human-like intelligence.

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that aside from the video games that utilize a Player versus Player set-up, some tabletop roleplaying games also apply the same rules? Interestingly, PvP games have sub-classifications. Player Killing (also know as PKing) is an unrestricted mode of PvP resulting in a character’s death. In this setting, one player can attack another without any prior notice in the game world. However, this may result in ‘ganking’, in which the killer, together with his teammates, attack a ‘helpless’ player. Dueling, on the other hand, is the opposite of Pking, for it is both voluntary and competitive. Duels involve rules and a formal system on how to go about the PvP game. However, they still have the same goal of knocking out the player. The growing popularity of action PvP games has reached the realm of e-Sports. As a matter of fact, the action game genre lands on the second place in the most played genres in the United States in 2017. An interesting note is one of the games that is included in the tournament employs PvP.

    "Or you can do the opposite like I did and stop being a filthy casual phone peasant and play fps games on a PC or even a console. The game is a buggy, hitscan laden mess of a game."

    "It's a fun PVP take on slingshot mechanics. Build and battle a team of animals. Every animal has it's own attack. You try to shoot down the other player's team out of the tree before they shoot you down. It's fun and silly! If you want to try something with that angry birds feeling but a fresh take on the slingshot mechanics you will like this. It's in beta at the moment they are giving away a Hero animal for free this month for people who play the beta."
