Funcom has released the closed beta client of Bloodline Champions, a PVP game with short, intense matches for up to ten players divided into two teams. Every player plays one of several different bloodlines with 7 unique abilities each. Different bloodlines in a set up complement eachother, different maps and gamemodes need different tactics, so good teamwork is a must for success. Chance is not a factor, spells and abilities do a set amount of damage. Random elements such as critical hits and passive abilities do not exist. Spells travel to where the player aims and can be avoided by enemy players, making every ability dependant on individual player skill. Without mana and creeps, the game has almost zero downtime and is instead based on short cooldowns, this coupled with no grind or farming ensures that every match is full of action.
