  • [Notice] 3rd Live Arena Test Service: World Arena

    Greetings from Com2uS!

    Please see below for more info on the 3rd Live Arena Test Service.

    > World Arena

    - The biggest change in the 3rd Live Arena Test Service is the new [World Arena] content where players can battle against other players from all around the world.

    - Currently, Summoners War is being serviced separately in a total of 6 Servers (Global/Europe/Asia/Korea/Japan/China). The new [World Arena] content will allow all users from all servers to compete against each other.

    - Several modifications will be made to the Live Arena Service, so please read below for the details.

    > World Arena Modifications

    - The Ranking Grade will be modified as follows.

    : The Ranking Grade of the 3rd Live Service will be as listed above and we'll be modifying the ranking grade after the service, if necessary.

    - The country info of each player will now be displayed in the World Arena.

    : Here are some examples of the modified UI.

    Furthermore, the world ranking along with the country info will now be shown as your ranking info.

    However, please note that the Visit feature won't be available due to the change in the ranking system.

    - The time limit of each turn will be modified from 15 sec -> 10 sec.

    : We've decided to decrease the time limit so the users can enjoy the battle at a faster pace.

    Please note that this modification is not permanent and there may be changes made after the service.

    - That's it for the modifications on the World Arena. Please keep reading if you're curious about the Official Live Arena Service.

    > Official Live Arena Service

    - We’re currently preparing for the official service of the [World Arena] as the 3rd test service will be our last test service.

    Please see below for the details.

    - New Speculate Mode and Replay Feature

    : We'll be adding a new Speculate Mode and a Replay Feature to enable users to watch their friend or a top ranker play in the Live Arena.

    You'll be able to cheer for your friend and also strategize your gameplay by watching others play.

    - New World Arena Reward

    : Though we haven’t finalized our thoughts on the World Arena Reward, we'll give you a brief introduction about the reward.

    : First of all, we're trying to avoid rewards with too much value because they might encourage users to forcefully play the Live Arena. We're sure that there are some players who aren't in favor of playing the competitive PvP content, and we thought that it'd be unfair for them if the Arena Reward creates a gap between those who play in the Live Arena and those who don't.

    : Secondly, we think that the reward should be attractive even if it might not be highly functional. Though this may sound conflicting, we're trying to come up with a reward that's special enough to encourage players who enjoy the Live Arena to keep playing the PvP content.

    : We're trying our best to come up with a special reward that can satisfy all users, so please be patient with us.

    - Live Arena Season
    : The Official Live Arena will be operated in seasons. We haven't decided on how long each season should be; however, we'll be taking our time to go over this matter since it's closely related to the reward system. Please note that there may be changes made, if necessary.

    - Various Modes
    : We're planning on adding various modes, such as league or tournaments with special conditions, so the players can enjoy various modes in the Arena. Please stay tuned for more info on different modes!

    We'll be back with more exciting news, next time!

    Thank you.

    Well if you dont fix the disconnects (=loss) from beta 1 and 2 neither of these (very good) changes make sense.

    Otherwise it will be very nice to play :-)

      With this update you should also remove Rune Pieces from all drops outside of Cairos Dungeon. Getting Rune Piece drops instead of Magic drops in the Elemental Raids 4 times in a row is very infuriating.

        We still have disconnection issue...

        I`m not trying any further until this is fixed...
        since it leads to frustration.

          The disconnection issue is just so annoying!!!

          Please fix this!!!

          It seems there are no progress with this issue... tsk tsk tsk

            Live arena is frustrating --- the user interface doesn't allow me to organize my monsters, so its way to hard to find the monsters I need in the time limit. We need check-buttons for grade / type / level, whatever so we can filter monsters & make our quick decisions more easily. If you're anything like me with 60+ 5* monsters, the interface is a joke.

              About New World Arena Rewards:

              First of all, it is of common knowledge that not all players like to play real-time arena (RTA) due to several issues:

              - disconnection (main reason)
              - not optimized user interface
              - lack of real balance among players

              But still, there are players that enjoy that, and should de properly rewarded for playing it. Those rewards should be given in a way that won't favor those who play creating a gap of power when comparing to those that doesn't do it. One idea to overcome that situation would be to deploy a chance of getting 1-3 shapeshifting stones everytime a player wins in the RTA (friend's match excluded).

              That system could work favoring the ranks as well:

              - Fighter rank players get a chance of winning 1 shapeshifting stone per win
              - Conqueror rank players get a chance of winning 1-2 shapeshifting stones per win
              - Guardian rank players get a chance of winning 1-3 shapeshifting stones per win

              What do you guys think about it?

                Its not too terribly bad....but its slow and tends to have a lot of lag....but it is unlimited


                • #9

                  - the CHALLENGER status will also get some reward.
                  - looser still get 1 point, as long as he complete the fight and not get disconnect or quit
