    @Jamey Kean - To be more specific and further explain exactly what I was speaking of when stating people could essentially "buy" their way to the leaderboard by refilling their Stamina and thus earning more points: I agree with you 100% that using "points" does make it MUCH more fair by effecting a very broad range of players levels, and that is GREAT (again, I am ALL about doing what is best/fair for the majority of players and NOT the minority)! I believe using a "point" system has the potential to work as a more fair way of scoring the BA, but it definitely needs tweaked if it's going to be successful and fair at the same time! With this new "point" system, players have the ability/choice to constantly refill their Stamina which will consequently allow them to score more points and ultimately win (or at least place very well) simply because they had the financial means to infinitely refill their Stamina. I have NO problems with people refilling their Stamina (especially because it's something I do on a regular basis), but if the scoring system isn't tweaked/changed in some way, people will be able to essentially purchase a "win" in the BA if they desire, and that is NOT fair to the majority of players (in my opinion)! I also agree that people who simply do the minimum number of required attacks and then "hide" in defensive mode should be penalized in some way (and definitely shouldn't be able to win by hiding), but I believe we need a better solution, and I'm afraid I don't even know where to start at this point..

    you mean, "with this new point system, those who spend the most money will score the most points and ultimately win".

    how in the world do you think that if I pay for services you should get equal "fair" treatment when you dont? should we tax paying players to give more free fp to those who dont pay?

    I liked the older system, this new system, as many have mentioned,is a way for the paying players to buy their way to the top, yet again. Who cares if people were doing min. attacks and hiding because they have massive def stance, kudos to them, i say. The only problem i see here are people with low def stance having a whine because of the high def builds that play BA and are able to place because of it. What BA really needs is something put in place to stop the use of autoclickers, there is not a doubt in my mind that people use autoclickers in the BA, just the same as they do in other elements of the game.

    but one thing before the points systems people still used loads to gain mad health for the end of the BA, I would really like to know what overall is for kano on fps that was used total for BA the old style and BA the new style cause I know for a fact there has been times i used alot of fps just to get kills and raise my health and to do that i had to buy stamina and i know alot that dont have jack for stamina and would have to buy 8 to my 1 refill... most buys 3 to equal what i got. So in turn i know big numbers are spent anyway....how many time have you seen loads with 10,000 or more attack's in a ba, I came in 29th and bought 3 refills so you dont need as much as you think if you play it smart :)

    seen plenty with more than 10k attacks, some within under an hour too. no matter how you look at it, the current format for BA is another money grabber. You buy enough FPs, you buy the win, no strategy needed other than blast through refill after refill, period. People whined about others having massive def stance, doing min attacks then hiding and this new format is a result of those whiners. Soon those very same people will be whining about this new format soon enough, just give it time.

    One problem/thing you are not taking into consideration though. That is how much stamina you actually have. If everyone had the same amount of stamina then this comment would actually be correct. You can not make a sweeping generalisation like " so you dont need as much as you think if you play it smart ". You may have a high amount of stamina whereas a lower level player may have much less and therefore to get the same amount of points as you, they are required to use a shit load more refills, as you have already stated prior to making this comment. You are contradicting yourself.
    Anyway, I completely agree with you Seth. We will need to wait and see. Maybe Kano are going to wait til everyone has changed there profiles again to match this new style BA and then swap it back to the old one.

    Brawl and rack up points. The numbers of mobsters don't go down no matter how many you kill. Try and be awake for sudden death and kill more :)

    it's not much different than before (at least the brawl phase), but you will not be able to get any ranking at all without scoring any points, unlike before (no more turtle rankings).

    And how much stamina should I be looking to save for it? I used to get about top fifty with about 1000-1500 stam. Do you need far more than that?

    near 10k just for top 50...

    So I need to spend forty favour points to get 4 refills in order to get 3 FPs back? Hmmmmm.

    I am sure most players have a different experience, so try it out , some players are very negative, about it, You may like it, ya never know ,and alot will depend on how you built your character.

    Yeah I'll definitely check it out but won't be using much more than 2k stamina. I'm pretty much an allrounder... :)

    Weak at everything :(

    i think you need way more than that. i save up 7 days' worth of rewards. but i normally get taken out before i get a chance to use it all, and i wasn't able to crack the top 50 last time.

    Is a little boring this type of Arena is all about clicking, not to much chalange left ... The rewards you get in last faze is not verry important anymore neither the moment you die so yes is verry boring
