Glitch,
Thanks for working to make improvements. I've been waiting for something to pull me back into the game...this may just do it. Obviously there will be wrinkles to iron out, but that goes with any major change.

Default NEW arena system

First of all WOW GLITCH what a great idea to increase arena activity. This will mean you do not have to wait for all 3 members to be on at same time. or have to run 3 of your own toons at once.

NOW on to some questions.
1. will toons from the same IP adress be able to be drawn in to same team ?

2. will toons from the same IP adress be able to be drawn to opposing team ?

3. If you are group farming same square and one player goes to arena Q what happens to other player ...do they stay in mob fight or does mob fight stop and they wait for return of Q player ? ( high zones require groups to farm). So leaving remaining player in fight is likely a death sentence ..unfair.. I dont think that solo players only allowed to Q would be a fair solution btw.

4. what about losing fights on purpose to hurt the players you are fighting with...i see this as a MAJOR concern? lots of us have fleets of toons we could put in Q

5. will you need to "form" a team(single) to Q in new system..as only 1 of the 3 currently own a team. or will new system let any one Q? or will new system require a different "forming" of a team(single)?

stay tuned im sure i will think of more but ill let you ponder this so far

Two possible options :
--------------------
1 - would be good if you can select five player, in order, as preference and if they are in the queue, the person who select to have a higher chance to be play in same team with two of the of the selected player.

2 - in case there are three in the same team more than once, and the team wins or loses, team who win or lose to get as bonus a greater or lower number of tokens then a random team

Default More questions

How does his apply to PK'ers? I have a PK alt who is sometimes an N player. Will PK'ers be a part of arena system? Will they be able to team with non PK'ers as an N or not?

Also glitch amazing idea, as long as this doesnt affect people in a big way. If I'm not correct, people will be put with others with same or similar individual ratings to prevent from teaming with slackers with lower ratings. Obviously at the start everyone will be put on teams with any player due to everyone having 1 rating at the start, but when everything flattens out, I'm sure the noobs will be set aside from hardcore players due to the rating differences.

I'm very excited about this. I've never been able to get on an arena team that sticks together, so this is an exciting new mechanic for me.

Thanks Glitch.

I love it.
Please make it so that it is completely anonymous. There should be no way to tell who you are paired with and you should not even be able to see their gear while in arena. This will protect lower level toons and weaker toons from being bullied. What a truly wonderful idea Glitchless.

One of your best ideas. May in fact return to this game for a while.

Glitch,

I share the concerns on this.

Let's say I'm playing multiple toons. If both get called to arena at the same time, one will get less attention - perhaps looking afk. That's no good for anyone. And I don't want to choose between arena and running multiple toons. Arena would lose on that choice.

If I'm in a group and each of us gets called to arena at different times, you can forget about high level farming because of all the breaks.

Basically, this proposal will work for those who solo farm with only one toon active. I'm sure you can run some stats on that. But my guess is that that isn't the norm.

What if Opri and Nibs are grouped, in combat, on the same square? Is it possible that one gets pulled out leaving only one in combat with the subsequent gold/trophies/loot still halved?

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.

While you finish putting the new Arena system together, please consider increasing the countdown to fight start. 10 seconds is not enough time for a 'stranger' team to form a strategy. Also, too long a countdown would slow down Arena. I suggest 20-25 seconds.

like redeye asked how will arena for pks work? getting 6 pks to queue at the same time for a match is highly unlikely

You can be a PK and still participate in solo arenas in spite of the fact that you normally could not group with the other players. Flashing red as a PK (active PK Mode) will kick you out of the queue, however.

You might want to include that the minimum level for solo arena is 70 in the Solo Queue Arena Details, too.
Especially considering the fact that the minimum level for creating an arena team in the previous seasons was level 20.

Glitch, please consider some sort of alternative for those under level 70 on s1 (30 on s2). While low levels may not be as concerned with Tempers and such, the double exp bonus is quite helpful, and it is unfair to take that away as well as arena itself. My team last season was in top 100, despite all 3 of us being in the low 30s. And the rewards would make every team on s2 automatically get at least 1 TC, which now is not possible.

Maybe a second arena for those under that level? Or some sort of boost.

Glitch, i had 2 toons in arena queue... the first one started a fight and then a moment or 2 later the second one started a match, the second toon fought 4 matches before the first one was done.... my question is do we still have a 10 min time limit to a match?

There is a 10 minute time limit that will probably be changed to 5 soon.
