Currently, there’s a few major issues with the Arena
- Lack of good rewards other than the occasional Epic (which is usually not that great either). What really sucks, is having an awesome match where you barely survive, and you get either nothing or a couple of Commons
- Too many Smurfs (higher level players playing at lower levels). I understand their plight… who wants to keep facing off with equal to superior mechs with little to gain
- Lack of motivation beyond the first 5 matches. Once the double gold runs out, you’re better off farming gold from the Campaign to improve your Mech
Make the Arena Great Again! For Ranked 2v2 matches (Rank 15-1) award a Guaranteed Fortune Box under the following conditions…
Defeating an Opponent of Same Rank, with only 1 Mech remaining, and at 100 HP or less
Defeating an Opponent 1 Rank Better, with only 1 Mech remaining, and at 250 HP or less
Defeating an Opponent 2 Ranks Better, with only 1 Mech remaining, and at 500 HP or less
- The Idea is a Great Reward for a Great Battle. The odds are better when you’re the underdog. It will actually make those Epic battles feel even more Epic!
- I feel a guaranteed Fortune Box is fair. The conditions are stringent enough that it would be hard to abuse. Fortune Boxes themselves only give 5% Legendary… but it sure is exciting to watch those lights!
- You will not get rewarded for quick and easy battles… only the close ones
- Rank is based on Highest Achieved Rank and not Current Rank. This proposal will not benefit Smurfs and will actually encourage them to stay at their level.
- Perhaps when displaying Rank during the match, TS can place the Highest Achieved Rank in brackets afterwards (this will let players know when they have a better chance of getting the Fortune Box as well as exposing the Smurfs)
- Great Rewards for Great Battles. Will give some added push to play some extra Arena Battles (more Arena players means less waiting time)
- Some added Excitement for when you see that you’re the underdog (instead of cursing the matchmaking system for making that David vs Goliath matchup )
- Keeps the Smurfs in their proper bracket. Chance to get some good loot for fighting opponents of their own rank or better, and more importantly, to improve their Mech.
- I would like to see these Fortune Boxes in PvP, as suggested or similar
- I would like to see better rewards in PVP, but in a different manner (please explain)
- I would not like to see better rewards in PvP
