    For those that didn't throw a shot, tough. You had the chance to support my early posts about the STUPID time the Arena started.

    I logged on this morning, chained the hell out of a few guys to get xp and made myself easy to kill and still came in at 180. I made no effort because of sleep and RL commitments and couldn't give a toss about the BA.

    The improved xp we were promised was crap!
    The health we asked Kano not to touch ruined the experience and failed to solve the issue of redundant players (told you so, but you know best).
    The timing was set to minimise the impact in the game and not increase it, and no doubt failed to bring in the money Kano were hoping for.

    @Kendell, Maybe you should listen to the players instead of thinking you know best. Perhaps just stick to deleting posts,eh?
  2. I stand by my previous idea of cutting down the amount of attacks to say 10 per hour on individual players to make the game last longer :) I was attacked 18hours ago here is are my stats :)

    Bang Tidy has killed M a y h e m
    1x - last: 18 hours ago

    Bang Tidy attacked M a y h e m and won
    591x - last: 18 hours ago

    Bang Tidy attacked M a y h e m and lost
    35x - last: 18 hours ago

    They are still Alive and fair play to them and Respect to that :)

    but Remember that each Attack cost 1 stamina :)

    Bang Tidy

    Attacks 25,399

    Kills 45

    Wins 23,949

    Losses 1,963

    Biggest Attack 381,788 damage

    That seems to be a Very Nice Pay Packet Kano have netted !!!

    are we going to get to see who killed us? looked for it but couldn't find it. also are you going to release the final 100 or 25?

    Had they not messed with the health I'm sure you would have seen the benefits.
    I suppose the problem begins when you get down to the last few 100. You would never kill them in the time slot provided. And as far as the last 100 went, you would have nothing to do after 5

    If you go to the screen where your final ranking is and click Feed: View Feed , you can see who attacked you and who the last person to attack you was..

  11. That rocked! Thank you very much for Battle Arena!
  12. Please do not put limits on the number of times you may attack in a specific amount of time! This is battle time outs!

    Lol thanks, but I'll be lucky if I hit the top 5.
    Chernabog, The Flea, Bang Tidy, and da worm all teamed up and took out 1.1b of my health with about 8000+ attacks.
    I'm down to 1.2b hp.

    You're only limited by the amount of stamina you other attack limit in the arena

    I believe I read somewhere that starting times will rotate on the arena. I think that is wonderful. It's been a complaint for as long as I can remember that time zones play a major part in giving some folks a leg up. For example, GP time for faction for me starts at 2am so for gp factions they are handicapped for the number one trophy since it's the first one to complete points. With calendars they start at 2am usually as well so again the 2am often costs me a lot of xp. The battle arena time worked out well for me this time and I had a blast. Was action packed and it's been a while since myspace had anything much action packed.

    I still have no idea how the thing works or how anything is calculated but I really don't care. it was fun. I'll join the next time and I'm sure won't last long because the timing won't be in my favor and you know what? That's ok! It's a community game and so whatever is best for the community is good IMHO.

    Kano cannot please everyone but I think rotating start times gives everyone a chance to participate and I see no other solution.

    As for limiting attacks. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Please no more limits!!!! The arena is free for all fighting style. Besides enough kills get stolen as it is can you imagine how frustrating it would be to be working on someone for days only to have it stolen because you used your attacks up and had to wait? It's like the HL the the fastest hardest hitter gets it most of the time but sometimes you get it stolen. Leave it be please.

    All in all I say good job Kano. It's a fun feature. Only thing I would like is a help section that you can get to any time. I had some minor questions along the way like what is the downside to the defensive stance and how does it work that I couldn't find the answer to while playing.

    I will join all the arenas but I am not sure I am ready to really participate in the next one fully. That one wore me out! Super enjoyed it though!

    ETA: Never was able to get the search feature to work.

    As far as I know there will be no limits in the battle arena, like you said it is called a battle arena for a reason, last slayer standing!

    We do plan on having rotating times and periods throughout the week so that it will be fair for all the different timezones. This is feedback that we have listened to and are making an effort that for future time based events that we are taking it into consideration, for the first couple battle arenas we want have them start mid-work day for us so that we can make sure we get all the bugs / kinks worked out of the new feature. Once we are sure everything is stable we will look to roll the times to not be just on Kano's work schedule which is Pacific Time.

    Thanks for the positive feedback it means a lot. We put a lot of effort and testing into this feature, and with the great feedback we have been getting so far we hope that this feature will provide some great entertainment for some time to come. Definitely a lot of different strategies that can be used.
