Testing out the new Kardia Island Shore Battle Royale in KurtzPel
So it’s been a little while since I played KurtzPel.
There have been quite a few updates made since last I checked in on it – a brand new game mode, the Kardia Island Shore specifically.
When I got reached out to to do a sponsored look at the content, I figured this would be a great opportunity to do one – test out new content considering I’ve been meaning to do a follow-up look.
So, I jumped right in, excited to see how the new PvP mode functioned. But, as I mentioned, it’s definitely been a while and I was a little rusty.
Naturally, the first thing I did was stare at my character for a moment as I’d forgotten I left her.. in the state she was in.
Then while queuing up for a 2v2 match – ’cause let’s be real here, I don’t know what I’m doing at this point and need a little practice before jumping into the new game mode, someone recognized me.
I told them I’d include them in the video, so.. hey Melovil!
Admittedly, choosing to first participate in a warm-up match was definitely a good idea. Because.. well, there’s a joke to be made here about how much I suck but this is a PG-13 video and I’m above that.
Although after a couple minutes my long-lost skill had returned and – yes, we still lost the match, but by the time it was over, I like to believe that I’d carried us to almost-victory.
Now, completely warmed up, I queued for Kardia Island, ready to do battle and assert my dominance over all the other Chasers participating.
The queue took a little but I was queuing on a weekday after noon, so.. yeah that was probably my fault.
But I did meet a few people in-game that knew who I was and were more than happy offering their assistance in getting me footage by queuing simultaneously.
They ended up circling me in preparation for what can only be described as some unusual sacrificial ritual but that was okay.. I could’ve taken all of them.
Then the queue finally popped and.. I was thrown into the Kardia Island Shore.
Thankfully, one of the first people I saw was Wolphite, one of the people that queued up to assist me in obtaining footage.
Throughout this encounter, he would remain a steadfast ally right to the very end..
Honestly, I felt a little as though I was in the Hunger Games, trying to avoid enemy players because this was my first time in here.
I did find one guy that wanted some of this though – Tiffles. He thought he could take me 1v1, and.. he was right. That probably would’ve ended my journey right then and there had I not been saved.
In the end he ended up running off and I was left once again to scour the battlefield for enemies..
Then I made it to what I believe was the center of the map, since there was a giant beam of light emanating into the heavens, attracting all manner of players.
This is actually where the bulk of the battles seemed to take place – and me being the little mastermind I am.. decided to wait until the opportune moment to strike and claim my kills.
In all seriousness, though, I had a lotta fun on Kardia Island.
The isle itself functions like a Battle Royale map, with the island slowly shrinking in size and you needing to eliminate your opponents while attempting to avoid the force field of death that is closing in on you.
There are rewards to be had the longer you survive – I managed to survive until the bitter end where ‘ol Wolph decided to sacrifice himself for me since he knew it was for the greater good.
One thing I found interesting was that whenever I landed a killing blow on an enemy I recovered HP. At first I had no idea what healed me – but after the second killing blow things.. clicked. C’mon, I’m not that oblivious.
I haven’t really done many Battle Royale’s. I never got into PubG, Fortnite or Apex Legends, but I did enjoy the Black Desert Battle Royale and this was a lotta fun.
Especially since you could see enemy names. This meant you could single out friends or even work together with them to try and secure a chance at victory.
I forgot how fun this game was and how entertaining it could be. And the community was a lot of fun planning this with.
KOG are planning on expanding the game mode over time but right now it’s a lighthearted way of murdering friends and making new enemies.
I’d recommend trying it out if you haven’t already or if you haven’t tried KurtzPel yet then at least giving the game a go – especially this game mode. It’s an absolute blast.
Unless you get ganked.. in which case.. yeah.
Again, if you want to try the game out or test out the game mode then go ahead and click the link in the description or pinned comment! Maybe I’ll see you there at one point.
