  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF EXEMPLARY EMBODIMENTS
  • Exemplary embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail below with reference to the accompanying drawings. While the present invention is shown and described in connection with exemplary embodiments thereof, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
  • In a massively multiplayer online first person shooting (MMOFPS) game service system according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, a user sets a means for attack, selects one of two or more teams, hits another user with the holding means for attack to put the hit user in a state in which an attack ability and mobility are notably reduced, and comes close to the user in the state in which the attack ability and mobility are notably reduced to defeat the user and obtain points, and the user in state in which the attack ability and mobility are notably reduced rejoins the game at a spot where the user in the state in which the attack ability and mobility are notably reduced receives help from a user of the same team when the user in the state in which the attack ability and mobility are notably reduced receives the help and recovers, and rejoins the game with an initialized state at a predetermined spot when the user in the state in which the attack ability and mobility are notably reduced does not receive help within a predetermined time, so that points obtained by the user are summed as a score of the team, and a team achieving a predetermined score wins the game.
  • The MMOFPS game service system according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention provides a game service through personal terminals connected with equipment serving as a game server via a network.
  • As shown in FIG. 1, the MMOFPS game service system according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention generally includes equipment 10 serving as a game server including a membership module 11 that manages the number of accessing teams and a game control module 12 that controls check of normal states of an ally and enemy, restoration by a close action, and obtainment of winning points, a game database 13 that stores health points (HP) of users, additional points (AP) of protective gear, etc. for supplementing the HP of the users and the winning points, and personal terminals 21, 22 and 23 that are connected with the equipment 10 serving as a game server via a network and access an MMOFPS game service.
  • The membership module 11 controls a game to be started only when the number of the accessing teams is a predetermined value or more.
  • The game control module 12 manages a respawning area to enable rejoining, controls damages and states of users to be managed, processed and displayed, and directs updated information or an animation in a head up display (HUD).
  • To be specific, when three or more teams are organized, a game can be started according to a game rule. All teams except for a team including a user oneself are enemies, and can attack enemies to obtain winning points. When the user attacks an enemy, the enemy is knocked down and put in a state defined as a knockdown state in which it is impossible to make a normal attack and mobility is notably reduced. When a user gets close to a knocked-down user of another team and takes an execution including melee attack and execution actions such as curb stomp, the knocked-down user is killed, and the killing user and a team including the killing user obtain winning points. As the execution including melee attack and execution actions, the user may come close to the knocked-down user and input a specific key or make an attack using a melee weapon, throw or shoot a throwing weapon to attack the knocked-down user with explosion or the same capability of the throwing weapon, throw or shoot a throwing weapon to directly hit the knocked-down user, or jump or take the same action to trample the knocked-down user. A knocked-down user can normally join the game by recovery aid of an ally of the same team at a spot where the user has been knocked down, and in this case, winning points are not given. On the other hand, when a user does not receive recovery aid of an ally of the same team in the knockdown state within a predetermined time, the user dies. To give a knocked-down ally recovery aid, a user should come close to the knocked-down ally and input a specific key.
  • A condition for victory is to defeat users of teams other than a team including a user oneself and obtain a predetermined score or a higher score than other teams within a predetermined time.
  • An MMOFPS game service method according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail below with reference to drawings.
  • As illustrated in FIGS. 2 to 4, first, an MMOFPS game service is prepared.
  • Then, a membership module checks whether teams accessing the game service are three or more, and the game is started when the accessing teams are three or more.
  • Subsequently, under the control of a game control module, all users except for allies are regarded as enemies, it is checked whether a user is in the normal state, it is checked whether an adjacent user is an ally when the user is in the normal state, and the user comes close to the adjacent user and restores him/her when the adjacent user is an ally, and defeats the adjacent user by an execution when the adjacent user is an enemy.
  • To be specific, when an enemy gets close to the user in the knockdown state and kills the user by an execution, the user rejoins the game at a respawn point. When an ally gets close to the user in the knockdown state and revives the user by recovery aid, the user is revived to the normal state at a knockdown spot. When the user in the knockdown state does not receive recovery aid within a predetermined time, the user rejoins the game at the respawn point. When the user in the knockdown state is killed by an execution of an enemy or does not receive recovery aid to rejoin the game at the respawn point, winning points are given to an enemy who has knocked down the user or kills the user by an execution and a team including the enemy. When the user in the knockdown state is revived to the normal state at the knockdown spot, no winning points are given to the enemy.
  • After each step, it is checked by the game control module whether a predetermined score has been achieved, and the game is finished.
  • As illustrated in FIGS. 5 to 8, in the MMOFPS game service method according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, a membership module first prepares for an MMOFPS game service and checks whether teams accessing the game service are three or more.
  • A game control module counts down game progression time, processes damages to store changed HP and AP of users in a game database, and displays the changed HP and AP on a screen.
  • The game control module processes a user having HP of a predetermined point to be knocked down, counts down a predetermined time, and changes a user state to the knockdown state at a point in time when the countdown begins.
  • When the predetermined time elapses, the game control module processes the user to be dead and to rejoin the game at a respawn point.
  • When the game control module counts down game progression time, HP, AP, scores of respective teams, a target score, and play time stored in the game database are initialized and displayed as user initialization information.
  • After the step of processing damages, a step is added in which the game control module stores the changed user HP and AP in the game database and displays the updated information on time information HUDs of users.
  • Also, a step may be added in which the game control module directs a state changed from the knockdown state using an animation and outputs a help request sign or sound when a specific key is input.
  • A step in which the knocked-down user recovers under the control of the game control module in a restoration step when an ally within a predetermined distance inputs a specific key and a state change is directed in a HUD when the knocked-down user recovers, and a step in which a user state stored in the game database is changed to the normal state in the restoration step are added.
  • When the game is finished by achieving the target score, a team having achieved the target score wins, and the game control module stores information about a defeat of other teams and scores of the other teams in the game database and directs victory and defeat information in HUDs of users.
  • When the game is finished due to expiration of time, the game control module stores information that a team having the highest score has won and the score in the game database and directs victory and defeat information in HUDs of users.
  • An MMOFPS game service according to exemplary embodiments of the present invention provides a variety of online game modes in which users grouped into a plurality of teams restore knocked-down users of the same team to life or defeat knocked-down users of other teams to win the game.
  • In exemplary embodiments of the present invention, a plurality of small teams are organized for teamwork and bonding.
  • In exemplary embodiments of the present invention, when attacked by an enemy, a user is put in a knockdown state in which mobility is notably reduced, and winning points can be obtained by making a melee attack on a knocked-down enemy. Since a melee attack should be made for winning points, it is possible to encourage vigorous movement and combat of users. Also, since winning points are not given when a knocked-down user is restored to life by help of an ally, bonding with peers can be obtained.
  • It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications can be made to the above-described exemplary embodiments of the present invention without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention. Thus, it is intended that the present invention covers all such modifications provided they come within the scope of the appended claims and their equivalents.
