Poll: Colo III, do you like the new season?

  • Poll: Colo III, do you like the new season?

    The new scoring system requires 10 wins (netto) to get a star, after 3 stars you will move to bronze II. This means 90 wins net balance to get to silver. At the moment the 50 best player, is still in silver.

    Apparently, some users are saying once you get above gold IV, lossing a single match removes 1 star

      Ghost confirmed in discord that:

      "If you are Gold IV or higher and lose a match, you will lose a star and go down to 50 colosseum points"

      And that is working as intended, it just never made it to the description.

      Not that it matters much to me, after 2 weeks, I'm still working through bronze II. But if you happen to reach gold, good luck in remaining there.

          I know, but that logic makes no sense, plus gold is the frist rank with 4 subranks. To my, this seems much more like a bug that the devs are trying to hide by saying the rule text is incorrect.

            I'm 593 level player. This is my first Colosseum and I'm absolutely hating it! They made it impossible for low players to get anything or even keep playing it. Matchmaking is horrible (4-5 level players and 6000-8000 players together...). Almost in every match I get twice or tripple higher enemies than me. Then this 3600 points limit and stars which make sure I have zero chance to get into next tier. I thought I would do my best to get medals (the only thing I wanted from this event), but now thx to their rules I can stop even dreaming about them. So basically, when I get 3600 points I quit playing and waiting for the day it gets reset, because it makes no sense to play. I'm hating this event with full passion. Even caverns was better than this mess.

                I'm in no way defending this change. I don't think its a bug, it seems more of a reaction to try to slow down the climb up the ladder, The result, in my opinion, made Col III near unplayable as far as ranking goes if you decide to stick to single play for the vast majority of players. Last Col, I was able to reach Gladiator through single play on the last week. It was a tough climb but I enjoyed it and felt accomplished at the end.

                I know there was rampant abuse of the team play aspect in Colosseum, but it did not affect my enjoyment of Col. I knew I had no chance to ever reach top 100 because of this abuse, but there were still plenty of rewards and goals I could achieve that were not affected by the abusers. And that is why, even with its warts, spinning blue ball, and other problems, I enjoyed participating in Colosseum II.

                This time around I don't see going beyond silver considering the variables that you encounter in single play as far as team composition in battle. Maybe that is what the devs intended, to encourage players to form teams if they want a serious shot to climb up the ladder. But the result for me is that I'm no longer a fan of Colosseum.

                I hope they revisit the changes in Col and try to strike a better balance in making it tougher to climb up the ladder but still give a chance to climb it up in single play beyond silver.

                  It is at least playable compared to previous versions, but I absolutely hate the scoring so far. I'm taking a break from it during meteorite, and I'll see if I can get past bronze 1 after that. If a player at nearly 4000, such as myself, struggles with bronze, then this will end up being an epic fail for almost anyone that just wants to do single player..

                    One thing I love about coliseum is the ability to help with certain campaign achievements (poly, heal, evade, etc.)

                      When a lvl4 account with 30k health means a battle will go 20minutes it's just a boring grind..

                        I wouldn't know. Battle times are only when I'm at work or sleeping. Deliberate on the devs part I think. Western part of the world can only access if retired.

                          For me one starts at 8AM (when I'm sleeping) and ends at 11AM (when I'm arriving at my work office). Second battle starts at 10PM and ends at 1AM (when I'm usually supposed to be in bed, sleeping). I only do that second battle, but yeah, those timings suck. I think it would be better if we could choose timings like we do for normal battles.

                            I am not sure but there are many guys with gladiator on the leaderboard, so they must have fixed it.

                              team exploid has not been stopped.
                              so new scoring system only hurts the players not cheating.
                              great job devs. you really are doing what is in youre power to get players to quit the game
