Elden Ring Players Are Disappointed With The Colosseum Fight And Its Poor Multiplayer Balance

On December 7th, Elden Ring launched a free Colosseum DLC. At that time, the Colosseum gates in Limgrave, Caelid, and Leyndell have all been opened. In these Colosseums you will experience three PvP modes, namely a 1v1 duel, free battle and free -for-all mode.

Many players are very happy about the release of this new DLC. Because they can experience the different builds that the Tarnished call for battle in the newly opened Colosseums. But there are also some players who expressed great disappointment. Because they found that the equipment and weaponry used by some combatants are very powerful. This indirectly leads to unbalanced games and a poor gaming experience for them.

Just last week, Elden Ring released a trailer for the Colosseum update without much fanfare. Along with this update are additional hairstyles, balance changes and bug fixes. According to past practice, these changes and new content must be the focus of attention of all players.

But this trailer is rather special. Because some of it shows a montage of Tarnished fighting inside a wall that has been closed since release. This means that 3v3 battles will officially enter the Lands Between after the update. This point is good news for those who have been paying attention to the Invasion system of Elden Ring. Because 3v3 battles belong to one of the elements of FromSoftware's previous Dark Souls series. Many players expressed their nostalgia.

Among other things, the trailer also shows off a short clip where characters can summon Spirit Ashes during some PvP modes. You know, this kind of combat mode was explicitly prohibited in the previous Elden Ring. So, it also indirectly reveals that Tarnished will have a lot of modes that can kill each other.

Moonveil Katana

Facts have proved that the players' guesses are correct. In the Colosseum DLC, players can play with various parameters to create their ideal multiplayer experience. But after players officially experienced these PvP modes, they gradually discovered the problems that existed. A player named JoeyKoyote07 also posted a video on Reddit to show his dissatisfaction. The content in the video mainly reflects that the reason why players can now win in multiple modes is largely due to their powerful equipment. His headline reads "I'm so excited I can't wait to see everybody's Colosseum builds", which seems very direct and sarcastic.

In free-for-alls in Colosseums, once a player is dangerously low on health, it only takes a second for an infamous ability called Moonveil Katana to appear on him. Although, the player can retreat and perform treatment. But those equipped with the Moonveil Katana won't let him go and will unleash Transient Moonlight in rapid succession in an attempt to kill the unarmed, bleak warrior.

Moonveil is a very powerful weapon. Ever since Elden Ring was released, it has been loved by players. Players can acquire this weapon early in the game. That being said, Moonveil has been nerfed after a few updates, but the Katana is still a strong option for multiplayer due to the Transient Moonlight ability. All Colosseums opened in this update have almost no obstacles or environmental hazards and are always open. As a result, the utility of weapons like the Moonveil also becomes higher, since there's nothing to stop the deadly projectile.

If you want to win other players in Colosseums, it is very necessary to acquire a powerful weapon. Beyond that, you can further upgrade your weapon with Elden Ring Runes. In this way, your battle will be easier.
