    Well, this arena amulet has 3 slots... no comment.

    To be honest, I got this wrong, I thought it was about "arena rewards in general". If this thread is to complain that 80% of the people participating did not get "unique" items, then the conversation is different. By the way, by definition a item given to 80% of the player base makes the item "not unique".

    You want people not using a single favor point receiving items that outperform legendary alchemies... I am not in favor of that.

      That is the problem: People’s expectations.

      I went into this Arena not spending any FP hoping to land in Legend like i typical do (in past Arenas, I had to spend FP to stay in Legend). I had low expectations in Arena.

      Next year, assuming I get MK to 7*, I might try for AV rank without spending FP.

      In summary, it helps to manage your expectations; if you have too high expectations, you are setting yourself up for disappointments.

        That is the story of this game, realistic expectations and facts instead of theories. This Arena was great in that the devs actually told us the description of the general and that IAs were being updated. Usually people are spending blind to the result. I was going to do it F2P, but realized how great the random drops were and went for AV. AV got me 195 SPs in IA, over 20 red and green crystals and a bunch of potions. That is, to me, a nice haul considering I had both red and green crystals in my current campaign.

          for someone like me who failed reaching AV rank after spending a ton of fp and lack of straight night sleep... i find that it's pointless for me to click on the legends chest and i decided to let it stay in my keep as a constant reminder of my failure and heartaches.
          for the meantime add me 5E51FD and this
          Pls do not hurt me... coz i know someone who knows someone that knows someone who can hurt you.

            Sorry to hear that. Once they announced the IA updates I expanded my spend to ensure I got the IA set, and I am sure others did too. I had thought 350K to be okay, but ended at 400K.

              no worries... wasnt expecting that leap for the final cutoff ... thought that my allowance of 13k above the initial 350k would be enough but anyway, im now fine with it... was a bit disappointed and sad last night but meh(!) it's not like the end of the CA world to me. though cant say what will i do in Arena XV, i sometimes tend to forget those stupid stuff i did and i just redo it all over again...

                Please, tell me where did I say or suggested this.

                Dwarf amulet was an example of how bad were items from this Arena for 95% (aka everyone below AV) of the players compared to the recent past. You just can't award something that is way worse than things you have been giving the last 3-4 years. The fact that some may or may not need to spend FPs to reach Hero or Legend doesn't justify this crap.

                  Arena came at a really bad time for me; I was busy during the last 3 days of Arena.

                  I am happy to read you got the AV rank and full IA bonus. 195 in IA is a lot.

                    The only good rewards in this Arena were random drops and a few chest rolls in afterward rewards. Everything else I got was pure garbage. Arena timing was also horrible. Who would play Arena on 31th December, when people are usually busy and preparing for a new year?

                      Maybe next Arenas could explore a new formula regarding how tokens are regenerated so it becomes a bit less time consuming and completely compatible with real life no matter the season. I guess sleeping 7-8h in a row could be less penalized and holidays could be respected.
                      Perhaps a system where tokens are awarded all together each 24h and players get to decide how to spend them (all at the time -not being able to legally drop themselves to 0 life later-, in two batches, etc.), an Arena of X days where you decide which ones you won't play (example: Arena lenght = 10 days but you can only join 9), increase max amount of tokens son you don't need to play each 4h in order to not lose any...
                      I am pretty sure there is no formula that would fit us all and, at the same time, reward the commitment of those willing to spend more and/or sacrifice real life for the game.
                      This said, I must admit that I like current format.

                        Well.... to be exact in your previous post here...

                        It was basically a Swordsman (according to wiki), slotted amulet on Arena X on Dec 2016 that outformed for attacking purposes the legendary astaroth amulet and also the alchemy that required also an AV reward from previous arenas. It was the only slotted piercing equipped amulet in the game, only outperformed by the legendary phatom amulet that had been released shortly before (don´t remember but I believe by october same year).

                        According to the wiki, it was for Swordsman rank, and IMHO was the best item given in that arena, to Swordsman!!! Why bother to make it to gladiator, hero, legend, AV. That was also actually to complain about.

                        So when it was released, the item you use as an example, was the second best attack amulet in game given to Swordsman, outperforming the current legendary ones except for the phantom of shadow, which can not be considered a simple legendary alchemy, but more a third level legendary alchemy (phantom, cromus, astaroth x2)

                          Also against. Arenas were 1hmin regen time in the past, now they are 5h. There are several challenges to compete and rank high in arena, one of the most important is "activity". By making "drop tokens when you want" you are equalling dramatically the efforts of many. Now that 6 out of the 8 ranks possible do not even require refilling.

                          I actually prefer they go back to 1H regen time, I missed that moments of sharing with the guild the lack of sleep and the rewards for it. Now it is just a credit card size issue.

                          Why not directly to provide Legend rank for every one from start as minimum rank, without the need of dropping tokens, and legendary items for everyone as well? That would be more convenient, lets forget about competition and challenge!

                          Arena was a tournament, that has already deviated quite a lot from what it was in the beginning. If there is a different tournament they should create 2 different events: one called arena, and other "free arena giveaways just by clicking"

                          what is going to be the next request, give 100 points regardless of the rank you attack?

                            You make it sound like getting the same amount of tokens in a 24-hour period (NO MORE, NO LESS) to spend around the player's personal schedule is ridiculous & unreasonable -- but it is not. Expecting players to be slaves for 240 hours straight is ridiculous & unreasonable.

                              I agree with Bandigerbolls here, the challenge aspect of a game shouldn't be based on sleep deprivation... That requires no actual in-game strength, and anyway anyone can credit-card his way to the top even if they sleep 10 hours a day.
                              It's bad design IMO, sleep deprivation is bad for your health and your life overall, it's silly. Putting an alarm clock every hour of the night not to lose a token would be insane and ridiculous.
                              At least now if you really care that much you can put an alarm clock once per night... Still silly IMO but oh well.

                                Back on topic, the AV item is decent, though it's lack of PvP stats is a huge departure from all arena's prior. And *that* is the real gripe here. All the gear at least had PvP stats on them! Last year it was all the 'God' equipment and each piece had wind pierce or whatever. You could at least imagine builds where you might incorporate the gear you worked so hard to get. Arena 14? Nope, only one half way decent piece.

                                These items should be retroactively updated to include PvP stats that are roughly 10% or more better than last year.
