We hope you are enjoying Arenas. As we’ve previously discussed, we’re looking to continue to update and improve the feature. In early October, we’ll be updating Arena scoring to include turns taken, updating Draft pools with new fighters, as well as making a number of other usability improvements. More details to follow.
In the interim, we are continuing to listen to your feedback. To that end, starting on 09/30 at 2 pm PDT, we will be changing the Arenas schedule for all leagues. We are also making some changes to Champions Arena.
The changes are as follows:
- The number of normal arenas have been reduced from 7 to 5 with an unchanged duration of 24 hrs and no overlap of Arenas
- We have reordered the combat themes. The new sequence starting on Monday will be: Old School || Draft || Classic || Trait Mania || Role Squad (The role squad type will rotate each week)
- There will still be two Endurance normal arenas, but their slot will shift each week.
- Champions Arena duration has been extended from 24 to 36 hours with a start time on Sat at 10 pm PDT, instead of Sunday at 10 am PDT.
