Well I've finished the game (well the missions) for the first time some days ago and started a new character to discover other professions. So I've done the quests in pre searing up to level 8 and then proceded to Ascalon.
During this first mission (from pre to post searing) you begin behind a door with 3 other people and you're branded as team 1 or 2. Then the doors open and we meet in a courtyard, each kill is counted and it stops after a while. It may be stupid but I got the feeling that people on the other side were... well humans and not just monster. Is this the case? If so what happens to the losing team?
(the first time I went through this I was so tensed on trying to understand what my german partners were saying that I didn't give that much attention to this part...)
