  • Battle royal ranks

    Hey Duke,

    I am rank 820 at the time of writing this and have 6k casings.

    I am a BSI player. Level 412 ( started the event at 398).

    I lose no rank points for being defeated but when executed i lose 3 or 6 bps at a time. I am just curious if this is ment to happen? I gain 1 bp per 1 token used on a win and between 12 and 25 of an execution.

    My issue is i am in master rank 7. I have players ranging from 800 up to 3k. Every 1 in 5 i test, i can beat.

    My issue is at this rate i just cannot win and gain 3 casings from my tokens. Through no fault of my own but maybe this system is flawed or i dont see the bigger picture.

    Ive had that many 1k up to 2.5ks in my feed it is crazy. Getting beat is fine but having no chance makes me feel like i am being punished in this event because of the build choice i made. I understand i maybe in the small minority here.

    Just checking if the battle royal is functioning as it should? I am gaining more rank than i am losing... with about 85 executed and being executed 185 times...

    Cheers.

    Sadly that's the way this event works. There are no lvl brackets and it's a survival of the fattest wallet. Unlike other events where you can go about your pace this one is like king of the mountain.

      I forget what arena it was but one of the devs said that lower levels would have their own bracket but it was only for 80 and under, I think the top player from that got a special weapon or something.

        Only 1st Arena ever had a small league, up to lvl 80.

        To OP, you lose bp when executed according to tier difference of the opponent. If he executes you from same tier (7) or higher (8) you lose less points, compared to being executed by lower tier (6 and below).

          Re: Battle royal ranks

          I have voiced this on multiple relevant threads that there has to be a bracket... certain level with certain BR can hit a particular range players only... its unfair that a 800lvl with BR 25 can hit a BR 22 whose level 500

            Losing BP when being executed was not changed.

            I understand your issue, you feel too weak at your own tier (7). To mitigate this, we already removed the -1 BP and added XP return when you attack and lose so those should give you some incentive/chance to keep progressing to tier 8, or at least being able to stay in tier 7. Also the refill bonus XP (1200 XP) is not affected by losing at all, and you were saying you are a BSI, so this event maybe your best chance to level up faster.

            The system was a bit flawed on this part but it is also reasonable in some ways. As a level 400 player, it is hardcore/amazing to stay in high tiers. Those high level thugs you saw had been through all the previous arenas like you are doing now, and this Arena is much more friendly for lower level players competing for high ranks. So I guess please bear with it, and find the smartest way to progress through the event. In my opinion, losing isn't a problem.

            In the next arena maybe more things will be changed, but I imagine it can/should never be the same as Casino Royale and MMB events, as those events has no real interactions with other players, which makes Arena a unique feature. We will keep improving the user experience in these events.

            Thank you.

              In my opinion events should be no holds barred. It should be a grind for new players and easier for older players rewarding them for their builds while also requiring some work.

              By removing the negative bp from hits I think they put it right on par with the tech lab events where if you really really want the prize you can spend enough to get there. Not saying it will be cheap but you can.

                Thank you for your reply. Thats 2 posts and 2 replies from you.

                I appreciate the information you have posted. This event has been very good for me. I have leved up to 420 at the time of writing this. 22 levels would have taken me months! Also my lts are leveling up very good also. I do believe you are correct that it has been easier for lower levels and i appreciate that a lot. You have made reaper very obtainable for myself the only lt i have ever wanted since i started this game well over 3 years ago.

                Thank you and good luck all.
