DC Universe Online
Legends PVP

Legends Player Versus Player (PVP) mode allows players to join in on instanced PVP battles as various heroes and villains from DC canon. Unlike the regular Arena style PVP maps, Legends maps provide players with specific character builds and abilities that removes player investment differences such as gear and level so that battles focus solely on player skill.

DC Universe Online shipped with three Legends PVP maps. In addition to designing core mechanics for arena functions, my responsibilities included initial planning and block-outs for all three maps as well as running daily play tests and working with the systems team to improve character balance and abilities that worked with various map activities. All map events and core game logic were my sole responsibility and were implemented using a proprietary database driven environment.
