Open arenas are meh..

I think there are plenty of people who remember the beauty and glory of arranged gladiatorial competitions with (trustworthy) people watching from the stands.

Personally I think some asset adjustments to allow for people to watch from the stands but not allow them to jump over would do great things (Like some kind of fencing). Maybe add an actual pathway for spectators to go through to watch. Adjust the radius of the neutral zone that is the Arena Grey-Flag area so that spectators don't flag grey, only combatants on the arena floor do.

Yeah good suggestion also another suggestion I had was maybe have a NPC or something to place bets etc

We were going to make a gladiator event. You and me. Something went very wrong, I wanted it to happen :(

NPC would have to be able to track all combatants in a fight and determine a victory. Honestly, taking bets and gambling should be in the hands of the players.


The Arena needs that overhaul that SV was planning, it would give true PvPers something to do and eliminate the thinly veiled excuses for murdering, ganking, and raiding "for PvP".

Could add a tunnel way from inside Tindrem to the stands for spectators for one side and then the outside gate for the ring.

Edit: and a door for reds on the other side of the stadium to the stands.

Well, technically there's already a doorway/pathway by the Tindremic Gardens where noobies spawn.

Edit: It may or may not be commonly known. But there are an obscene amount of inaccessible tunnels and assets underneath that arena. I've been in there a few times and was able to clip my camera through the doors blocking the way and I could see tunnels and hallways for miles.

Well, open arenas are kinda pointless. Why go there to get zerged meaninglessly when you can do that anywhere?

Arena should be used for competitions. Gladiatorial combat, duels, skirmishes etc.

With some inspiration taken from the Roman Gladiatorial bouts that are recorded in history, one can find some amazing scenarios to work with.

well at least i got a "fight"
ill come back if the arena stays open after restart

Edit: come on lyfender, you could at least have stayed there with your group, its empty again
 
Entering the arena should put the player in spectator mode. Only after registering for a match should a player spawn when their match is up. An arena herald should call out the combatants and the terms of the bout. Appropriate gear, pets, and regs should be provided, and kept by winners. The Chonicles should hold extensive records on matches.
 
I liked the arena when it spat out a topaz in the chest every 10min.

Godkin Veratas,
Reward with no risk? No thanks. I like the general idea, but nothing should be provided. Also are you thinking queue for different style matches like 1v1, 2v2 etc.? It'd be cool to be able to queue for different pre determined tiers or something.
