  • Suggestions for next arena.

    Something's to consider
    1) keep hp to 100. It's unfair to ask us to waste tokens while the high health guys make hay.
    2) keep a lvl bracket of 100-200 max difference as its already there for the no Xp rule.
    3) 1 point per win then the bonus for x.
    4) for ranks please set targets eg. Reach 1000 bp for rank 2 2000 for rank 3 so on. Making it percentile based is very very ambiguous and a tremendous waste.
    5) the other events had set targets and thats the best part of ue events. It encourages participation. Please let the ranks be the same. but for the top players let it be based on the max points the highest ranked guys collected the top ten. Top 100 etc rewards. . It's simple. I am shocked its not done here too.
    6) revenge hit. I can't hit my bouncers please allow at least one time so as to avoid farming abuse.

      -The health recharge during attacks should not be happening anymore.
      -For Ranks: This is a tournament style event. If each event was the same it would be boring. Percentile will be used for Arena to determine rankings. This ties in to the set targets for prizes. This is just a different sort of event, geared for PvP players who want to compete and not as a progression based event. The player base sets the bar for what they think should rightfully determine the prizes.
      -There's a trade off for high health guys. The high health guys will deal less damage to you(also requiring more tokens for them), and have less ability to win fights.
      -Brackets will likely change for next arena. Right now there are 2 level brackets, next arena will likely have 3.
      -1 point per win might be feasible in the next arena but had some potential abuses that we didn't include it in this arena.

        Your event is like prison. How do I opt out? The prizes are not worth the aggravation. If I had known you were not using castle age brackets I would have avoided being massacred for 11 days. Lousy event after lousy event. Pay some attention to the suggestions that Mist is making and pretend to give crap about the majority of players who only pay a few hundred dollars a month. This may be it for me and probably others. A BSI based event but you managed to screw it up by letting anybody lvl 1200 hit a lvl 80. Nice work. My own fault for thinking any contest you made would be worth entering.

          Completely agree. This was sold to us as a pure pvp event for pvp players. Without a lvl cap, it's another big spender LSI event... Again. How many more LSI events do we need? I also thought maybe this time there would be a level playing field. Build vs build, not build vs level. I'm a $100-$150 a month player. Now I'm a $0.00 a month player until PA starts giving a shit about the majority of the players, not just the top 50 spenders. Level the health and cap the level differences. Neither are very difficult to do. Again, good job ruining a great concept.

            Honestly, you get rewarded regardless of what you're doing. If you decide to opt out that is your choice but I know most folk out there know that this event is worth it regardless of what level you are. We'll add another bracket in the next Battle Royale so that competition can be more normalized for probably level 80-250 or so. But if you're level 81 you should not be targeting the top 200 rewards, it doesn't make sense. Most people who try will get Mortar[rare] or a Reaper's epics[very good items] for free[without refills]. There are a lot of other good prizes too if you're not playing that much. Prizes that take a lot longer in other formats to get. There are no smoke and mirrors here, these events are meant to engage the player base, all of them. If you do not see it this way, please feel free to not join the next event.

              The problem we have as this was sold as a pvp event. Pvp is not a lvl 183 getting tore up by lvl 800 900, etc. the rewards are still decent, that's agreed, but right now, most of us feel cheated. I might as well be getting farmed by hacked accounts. No difference as soon as take 8 losses and x from a high lvl, my health is instantly refilled, then along comes another high lvl to do it all again. Strength doesn't matter at all, which really negates the point of pvp.
              Extremely disappointed in PA

                If you're level 200 and someone is level 1000. It is not because he is a LSI build that he is winning. There are greater differences in gaps that you are not making up for including time spent playing the game, FP bought etc. They can easily be a pure PVP level 400 if they allocated differently and you would still lose. A PVP event is for PVP players. If you are losing to a level 1000 in regular PVP(which does NOT have level restrictions), then you should also be losing to them in Battle Royale. That does not mean you need to defeat them to enjoy the event. There will always be players above you in PVP ability.

                    Rank 1 or top player in arena is sitting at 8164points.. Basically top 10 have already been decided that's how huge the point gap is

                    You guys have improved a lot of things over the ca system in most ways but in some ways made it worse..

                    At oc what artanis means is if they show up in your news feed losing to them in regular pvp then they for sure will show up in your battle royal list and you should also be losing to them... Meaning that arena is basically the same as normal pvp

                        I know same for me it sucks.. Same thing happens in ca arena also... I hit a ceiling because I can't beat level 1000 or higher and stuck with 1400+ targets... Anyways doesn't matter top 10 has been decided already as I said the point gap is to massive.. It's basically a race for 11th place

                            I'd like to see the point penalty for getting executed drastically reduced. It's beyond ridiculous that you lose almost the same amount of points for getting executed that you get for an execution. I fully expect to wake up in the morning down to 0 points.

                              Hi Iceline, that is part of this event. Arena is meant to be close to a zero-summed game, rewarding pvp strength over pure activity[recharges or no sleep]. Stronger players will find it easier, weaker players will be required to be very active. I highly doubt you will wake up with 0 points or close to that. We will see how this test of strength does and tune for the next arena depending on whether we think we should reward activity more or not.
