Episode 12: Twisting Tower
Welcome folks to another episode of Scenarios 101! Our next special edition Scenario is Twisting Tower!
Twisting Tower is an 18 vs. 18 Scenario based on the Chaos Wastes zone. During the Bitter Rivals event, players from all levels will be able to join this Scenario in their own brackets, but it will later be designated as a Tier 4-only Scenario.
This Scenario features several islands of terrain and structures floating perilously above a huge Chaos depression. The Twisting Tower itself is in the middle of this zone which houses the two capture points: The Atrium and The Loft. On the roof of the Tower you'll find a small Chaos altar that houses the Oculus of Change (this only spawns when you capture both the Atrium and Loft), which is one of our affectionately labeled Murderballs. Each spawn point island has two paths which lead to Chaos portals that "jump" you directly to the Twisting Tower. One portal takes you to the lower section beneath the Atrium, and the other takes you to the roof. From the roof you can move downward towards to the Loft.
Twisting Tower uses a hybrid of rules which players familiar with Khaine's Embrace and Highpass Cemetery will recognize. Capturing both the Atrium and the Loft will grant you points toward a Scenario Victory. When you capture both the Atrium and Loft, the Oculus of Change spawns on the roof. Picking up this object grants the wielder more damage as long as they're killing players, but also grants double the points per player kill. This is one of those Murderballs that you want your damage dealers to hang on to! Be warned though, picking up the Oculus of Change will trigger the Chaos god's wrath and anyone still inside the Twisting Tower will be purged by fire!
That's it for this special edition of Scenarios 101!
Until next time... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
