WHAT’S THE MEANING OF AOE IN GAMES?

There are several codes that are quite significant in the world of role-playing games. You probably haven't immersed yourself in a game very much if you haven't heard of the term AoE or never learned what it means.
WHAT’S THE MEANING OF AOE IN GAMES?

AREA OF EFFECT

 

Using anything from bombs to savage spells that shoot meteors out of the sky! AoE stands for "Area of Effect" in its most basic sense. It is a collection of codes that categorize attacks and spells according to their names and purposes. In other words, rather than only hitting one or more targets directly or arbitrarily, an attack, spell, or ability used by your character impacts an area.

 

Due to its accessibility, visual capability, historical/fantasy backgrounds, and the virtual impact of participating in a parallel reality, role-playing games have changed the world of video games, and this phrase is an important component of many of them.

AREA OF EFFECT VS SPLASH DAMAGE AND SPLIT DAMAGE


When it comes to splash damage strikes in video games, there is a widespread misconception. Many players, particularly new ones, may be perplexed by these expressions since they both suggest that one or more foes have been hurt. Splash damage may be seen in this context as a form of AOE that refers to gaming, where the "splash area" represents the "Area of effect".

 

Split damage, on the other hand, often involves targets sharing a damage total. Although the basic premise of this concept is to attack several targets, an AOE is not necessary for it to occur.

For instance, in the Pokémon games of the third generation, "Surf" and any other attacks that strike all adversaries divided the damage among the targets. However, with techniques like Earthquake or Explosion that affect every Pokémon in a fight, this wasn't the case. Note that starting with Generation IV, this was solved. Now, such tactics only reduce the number of simultaneous engagements by 25%.

 

We have the Arcane Missiles card from Hearthstone, which does 3 damage among many adversaries, as an example of non-AOE split damage.

 

IN WHICH GAMES YOU CAN USE AOE?


A decent AoE may save your life in too many games, but some of the most popular right now include the following:

 

Overwatch

It is a first-person shooter game where players control teams that engage in combat on a 6 by 6 grid. Mei, whose ability "Blizzard" functions for both crowd control and AoE damage, and Lucio's Sound Barrier AoE, which grants teammates inside a 30-meter radius of him an additional life shield boost, are two examples of the AoE that stand out in this game.

 

League of Legends

 

A MOBA-style game, LoL is the only one to challenge Dota2 after years of dominance as the only MOBA with widespread acclaim.

The AoE in this game come in a wide variety, and depending on your skill level, you may use either visible or invisible locations to perform them. For instance, chain AoEs (like Brand's Pyroclasm) attack a specified target and then randomly impact foes in the area of effect.

 

On the other hand, there are AoE that are created by your character assaulting others that are nearby (like Amumu's famous "Curse of the Sad Mummy") or that have a specific, linear, or cone-shaped area of effect in front of you.

 

The League of Legends Wikia contains information about the game's kinds and AoE, as well as how each level increases in relation to the points you provide to other players. The distance you must travel to avoid being contacted by the opponent Nasus's "Fury of the Sands" aura, however, is the greatest indicator of the rating of an AoE.

 

Fortnite

 

It's a game that transcends all boundaries and is significant in the world of Esports, and it handles the AoE codes flawlessly.

AoE are particularly helpful in this game's PSD6-10 or SSD9-10 forms, when minion waves are often clustered and influenced by a funnel. Area attacks here, particularly arson assaults, often have a significantly higher value than the greatest DPS.

 

Dota 2

 

This game is a sequel to Dota, which established the MOBA gaming genre and was one of the first (together with Starcraft) to introduce esports to stadiums. As in League of Legends, AoE gameplay plays a crucial part in the team strategy of this game, particularly when it comes to abilities that have additional effects (such as Magnus' Instantly pulls, which instantly pull and stun foes in the area, making it simpler for a teammate with more DPS to commit a slaughter).

Clash Royale
 

Even when a game's nature changes, AOE meaning remains constant in such games. What does the Clash Royale AOE represent, though? The Wizard is the ideal example since he can cast a spell that will eliminate an entire bunch of minions. Fortunately, dragon strikes can only harm a certain region. But Clash Royale provides very little control over this.

 

World of Warcraft
 

As you may expect, the earliest MMORPGs provide some AOE damage. There are WOW classic mage AOE leveling tutorials available since there are so many possibilities for mages in WOW.

 

In this manner, mages grind like crazy with AOE talents like Blizzard, making mage AOE levels rather quickly while warriors must kill their target one by one or gain some splash damage moves in return for drastically decreased DPS output.

Mobile Legends
 

In contrast to Dota and LOL, the definition of AOE in Mobile Legends doesn't vary all that much. The finest illustration is Aurora's ultimate talent, which sends a massive ice rock to a specific location and slows and damages nearby foes. However, mage AOE leveling is not a feature that is unique to WOW; practically other MMORPGs provide mages with a broad selection of AOE and multiple target attacks. This covers older games like MU Online and both Lineages as well as TERA, AION, Blade and Soul, and Perfect World.

 

AMATEUR OCEANIC ESPORTS

 

AoE is the main organizer of low-level esports competitions in Oceania, hosting events like "AAOL" and "Rise Up Invitational".

More than 800 players from all categories may engage in a high-end connection environment thanks to the setup of the spaces and technology, which also acts as a launching pad for players looking to advance in the middle.

 

Every year, an event known as the "AAOL" is planned that attracts more than 500 Overwatch players, regardless of whether they are on teams or not, and decides on a 10-week tournament with no restrictions on player or team affiliations. This makes AOE a community that supports those it strives to serve. In addition, it helps directors and observers so they can round up their expertise.

 

AGE OF EMPIRES

 

The title "Age of Empires" may also refer to this very iconic real-time strategy game. This game, which is set in a time period between the Stone Age and the Iron Age, gives players the option to play in one of these civilizations to have access to unique talents and powers. Before Microsoft offered a $60,000 reward to the winner of a local tournament in the USA, Age of Empires esports wasn't exactly taking off.

 

Therefore, although not having the same notoriety or financial rewards as Fornite, Age of Empire is nevertheless significant in the world of electronic sports and one of the mainstays of 90s strategy games.

Now that you are aware of what the phrase "AoE" means, it isn't that perplexing, is it? All that is left for you to do at this point is learn how to gauge it in the particular game you're searching for.

 

A decent AoE may save your life in too many games, but among of the most significant at the present are the esports games Overwatch, League of Legends, Fortnite, and Dota 2.
