Default Last Minute Arena Combatants

It seems particularly demoralizing to work hard in arena for months only to have late entrants steal huge amounts of hard won ratings in an instant. Even if we don't lose slow rating on that bout, we do on following fights due to the discrepancy between fast & slow ratings.
Could we possibly have a minimum participation level to be considered for final standings?
Maybe 100 fights a month minimum during each full month the arena is going on?
Maybe no new participants past the half way point of the season?

The minimum number of fights to qualify to participate rule might also eliminate some of the arena Q dodging that is occurring with folks running hiding when hard toons are on.

I like the idea of a minimum # of fights for the season since it will force folks to rush to get them in as fast as they can in case season is shorter than expected.

something put in to stop toon doing rush weak would be great. also arena dodging is a major factor.

80% of toons give 1 rating.

10% of toons take 10 - 30 rating.

10% of toons dodge when there is some 1 who can kill them online.

so once u get into the top 10 ur killing 50 toons for 1 rating then loose 3 fights to the 10% who can kill u and u just wasted 4 hours of arena for what? the 10% of people u get high rating off are dodging*

the current system promotes people to dodge to keep what little rating they have gained

Support, but honestly, it's difficult to cater to everyone's needs... There'll be people who will say they were on a break, and come back to play? Why should they suffer for having a life? There are so many factors to include in this that it becomes a monumental task.
The current rating system is a result of all these, so I believe any changes should occur from next solo arena season (and possibly team season) with prior information about these changes.

You cannot skip leg days! If you work hard on getting a spot in arena, try working hard on getting a good pvp gear in order for the previous not to be in vain.

This is just one of the 4 problems that created after the removal of Double drop chance from people that are afk in arena fights. The behaviour of players changed about arena after that and caused more problems than before. Another one is for example the not so high level players die to fast inarena and most of them in less than a second, most of them i suspect don't even do arena, there is no motive for them to spend time and gain nothing. Another is High skilled players that don't mind to lose some rating but could put once in a while the arena queue don't gain anything to queue and just die and lose raing without any other bonus. Etc. Give back the bonus chance and the behaviour will return to a more realistic and funny situation.

Strongest toon should win arena. Not guy who has no life to the point they can invest half a year to queueing. Get decent win more rushers aren't an issue. People whine about rushers every season. With how active I am on forums you didn't see me making a bunch of threads crying about rushers last season when they could have screwed me out of champ by making us lose max rating. That's cuz strongest should win.

I do not support,

The problem is not people queuing when arena is nearly over the problem is the arena season is way too long. If the best toon starts arena with one month or a few weeks to go they still deserve to win if they are the best toon.

I dont support.

Unless you need tokens theres no reason to que all season. The length is too long and its such a grind. A toon grinding the full season doesn't deserve to be higher rated then a better toon that started near the end.

Yeah def not supproting this either. It's fairly stupid. You can't expect everyone to be able to q 6 months straight and if they flunk 1 month they get excluded. If you are strong enough, sure, random loss hurts and sucks, but you can find a way to stop that someone until he catches up. Many things were introduced to slow down rushers and it's fine as is. Strongest deserve to be up there rather than someone who is in q all day long. And besides, you got your reward. Bunch of tokens and farm bonus throughout the whole season.

If they beat you and take your "hard earned rating" then I guess they deserve to be placed higher than you. Forcing them to play all season just means instead of going up to 10th place pre rushers then dropping to 30th once the rushers start, you will hover at 30th all season.

A simple fix for rushers is to be better than them, then they cannot take your rating. If you are not stronger why should you place higher?
