Default Arena Prize

I think its time to reconsider top 3 or so Prize payouts. Arena causes more people to want to spend real $$ to get those fast gains to beat the ones who challenge them. However when the arena prize is only top payout estimate of 10tcs+10-22mill weapon it makes people not want to put in the months time and effort or even IRL money when they can grind that out with no problem in a short time. Not to mention the arena title doesn't ever stay.... The prized weapon is usually something terrible lately that no one wants to use and then it will be re dropped soon if master is not made.

All i see these days are DD casters and BMs farming up as much gold as possible... I don't see many people being extremely competitive or flexing their builds around much for arena its self.

bring back some PVP excitement please! Give us a reason to "go all out"

Design some 1 of a kind items (armors, weapons, or gems) that can't be dismantled and crafted. Let the first place winners choose 1 of those items and you will see true competition I'd wager

The awards for Acumen Inquest in RWK were pretty nice. Making rewards similar to that may draw in more competitors, who then spend more $$.

i like the idea of a good prize for top 3, my problem is if it is a unique weapon worth alot of gold, that you will see the same 3 ridiculously op'ed teams constantly in arena giving no one else a chance.

I think the decline in competition in arena may be due to the rewards in arena plus and probably more so due to the length of arena.

I noticed a lot of people that used to give great fights and challenge in arena have left, or have stopped been so serious about arena.

Maybe if their was a cash prize for arena to the top 3-5 teams or so it would bring back some of nods old players and make everyone still playing more inclined to give arena a good go. Something like that to play for would surely cause more people to spend in game. It would also be a very good way to draw new players. Who wouldn't want to play a free game where you could win irl cash

I just want to say Thank You, yes thank you for all the improvements on the PvP and PvE as well, it is looking and feeling much much better now and you keep adding really nice things.

However, i would like to see that arena rocking to its maximun potential and the only way to do that is by making it shorter or more rewarding, we had a pact a few months ago that you wouldnt change the past arena lenght but the next one you may consider it, i would recommend you to consider it for the next one and to let us know with time to be able to spread the word.

i only can say the main reason that i play arena only for the bonus in farming and if it wasn't that i wouldn't play arena at all. Second thing i notice is most people stopped playing arena after stopping giving prizes in teams between 50-100 position at the end. A third thing i notice is that i am pissed with arena i play all the time with teams that should have 1000 points over mine and when i lose from them i shouldn't lose rating, as they are obvious more better teams than me and my alts. and i see them having always 300-700 rating.... what's the reason to dismantle all the time a very good team that should have rating over 2,000 ... someone is pushing arena in lower ratings than it should be because he simple can do that, Glitch knows that or knows not doesn't matter, cause now knows... It's extremely disturbing to see your low powered team lose rate from teams that should have double your teams rate and drop your points in very low level.... i suspect the reason is to not allow people to temper equipment and if this is the case Glitch's desicion to not allow temper beyond 1-2 levels after season ends... The tempers are being manipulated by strong teams as i can see. but the main reason that not so many teams and players play arena and will not play if nothing change is that you dont win anything at all if your team end 100th and this was not the case a year or two ago that arena had double teams than now...

Default Arna rewards

hya Guys

just to echo what most have said here! arena has become to long people are losing will to play a 5 month season big time !

as for rewards yes the top team should be given a choice not one crap LG for all!

as for unique legendries how about this instead? if the winner keeps legendry weapon or pet or armor and not sells it on then the stats on that weapon or armour get a winners arena bonus? just plucking numbers here but maybe 5-10% increase in all stats and procs if the winner keeps the weapon? if weaopn is dismantled or sold on then this bonus disappears and would just get the flat normal stats and procs? maybe this would generate some renewed interest it whats becoming a snooze fest>?

just my random thoughts and 2 pennies worth lol

For slow effects, use the slow % but as a negative.

Just repeat for multiple effects.

DO NOT multiply by 1+slow% to get your new delay. 1*1.4 is not the same as 1/0.6 and your answer will be wrong.

I think buffing prizes is the wrong way to go. Players choose to spend the amount they do on pvp cos they enjoy it and if the prizes are too strong it will be hard for those not getting prizes to have a chance to beat those that have a prize.

The problem is that arena tries to do lots of things at once and by doing that makes it hard to be appropriate for each benefit. To explain...arena is a means to get tokens, it is a means to get rating to use tokens, it is a way to test your group pvp builds in a competitive format, it is the opportunity to win a title, it is the opportunity to win a tc/armour/wep prize, it is a way to increase yield in gold/trophs/resources per min rrt through bonus.

There are lots of reasons for people to take part and not all reasons compliment each other regarding making a good competition. If you arena for bonuses and you don't care about tokens you can easily mess up the competition by having a very strong team with no rating that happens to play a certain time of day so destroying the rating if mid lvl teams playing at that time. If you arena to be the best at pvp then long seasons are a huge drain and so you feel you need a big prize to compensate that effort. But this would unbalance things and it would be better to put less drain on you for a more modest prize and the real prize coming from the title you receive. I could go in but you get the idea. Some of the things that arena provides ie tokens or bonus should come from a new aspect of nod so arena can be all about the competition.

What if people with an arena title got some sort of added bonus. It'd get bigger as the rank goes up, of course. like a % hp increase, or whatever. Maybe have a list to choose from so each build has something that would benefit them. At the end of the following season, they'd lose the bonus along with their title. That'd make people come back season after season to get that bonus. Just an idea. It's early and I'm sick so Idk if that made a whole lot of sense.

differnt rewards not just for top 3 but say top20. cause all thats the top 3 are going to change is nothing really. aand arena does not even start till arena RUSH week like always.

the trouble im seeing is the arena ques are long. and the lower rating hurts those with out many Virtures <--- in real life ones.

top 5 teams should easyly hit max rating maby top ten
i think the ability to further temper should be tiered after arena end llike
0-999 +1or 2
1000-2000 2-3
and 2001 up 3-4
and this decays over week to all get +2 LOL : )
