Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.

- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Arena xv: Secrets

    Date: 12/7 to 12/17

    Time: Gain Arena Points From
    Dec 7, 2021 @ 00:00AM PST to
    Dec 17, 2021 @ 20:00PM PST

    Rules: Equipment will be used in your attacks (and defense). You will accumulate Arena battle points on victory, defensive victory does not earn points now. Each attack costs 1 Arena token. Tokens regenerate after a period of time. Everyday, the Arena will calculate your Arena battle points and place you in a rank bracket (top 5% for example). Upon Arena completion, you will be awarded all items from your current rank bracket.

    Key phrase: NO DEFENSIVE WINS

    I understand why, but as a wall build, it pisses me off. I could get over 1000 points at night just from legitimate probes (i.e. not manufactured by mini hits).

      does this mean that pierce/rez, runes and archive are NOT counted?

        Piercing is counted, unless Thane strikes and nullifies it (random event).
        Why is there something rather than nothing?

          Info on the general from a mod on Discord:

          NEWS!! Liz is a defensive general. She can take damage for her teammates on either side of her and can accumulate the damage taken, releasing it on her next attack.
          Further details are still being tweaked and have not been shared. Thats the exact wording.

            It would be nice to know exactly which general abilities work and which don't. Since we only get piercing & resistance messages in battle, I'm rebuilding my alliances to just include the various piercing & piercing resistance combos.

            I'm also tempering my expectations this year:
            a) expect to lose a lot of points every time I walk away
            b) don't expect final rewards to be worth the effort
            c) play for the instant prizes, and the arena guild bonuses for all next year

                I agree on this. No Arena was ever worth it for me in terms of rewards.
                It's actually very disappointing and annoying: after weeks of work I get some LAME equipment I have no use for and a potion. Arena is always made for the Alpha and the Eternal, everything else is lame as hell, every time.


                I wish they did it more like they did the recent Colosseum or the Anniversary Event: points for activity turned into money that I can use to buy stuff from a shop. stuff I can USE. that is worth something.

                compared to the useless s**** the rest of us get, the Alpha and the Eternal always get some HUGE advantage that only widens the divide between them and us lowlings. I understand the greed of devs, but this is a dumb move strategically. and it shows: look at the attention this event is getting here, in the forum. it seems there's the same 4-5 people.

                  To be fair, most of the discussion about Castle Age has gone to Discord.
                  And the less activity you get in the forums, the less people show up, and the activity decreases even further. The forums are now very close to being dead.

                  During Arena XIII the best reward was actually for Legend (Lightning of God). But most of the time yeah, it's only EV that gets something really valuable. Last Arena, AV did get something great too.
                  And this one we already know for sure AV will get a set bonus in IA (rewards have been modified a bit and added to IA about 4 hours ago).

                  However, there were also plenty of Arena generals who were mediocre, and people spent a lot of money to reach EV and get something pretty much useless. Arena has always been a gamble since they never really disclose the ability of the general (or at least not enough to really matter) or the equipment stats.

                    Are Runes part of Arena Battle Formula? Just trying to create an AWAY loadout with more concentration on DEFENSE and resistance and need to know if I need to take Runes into consideration as well.

                      I don't consider the arena guild bonuses to be lame. If I can get a 6%-9% monster damage bonus for a whole year, I'm going to spread my efforts over my iPhone minis, instead of putting it all in my FB main. I'm encouraging other members of the guild to take the same strategy.

                          I've gotten some evolution crystals as rewards for participation, but every single one so far has been red. And coincidentally, red crystals are the ones I need the least. I'm just wondering if I'm having bad luck, or if others are also getting red crystals exclusively, or at least much more often than blue and green ones?
                          Why is there something rather than nothing?

                            I've few hundred blue crystals surplus.

                            We need to ask devs to enable crystal trade market. Even one for two would be a gain.
                            You landed a CRITICAL HIT on Corvintheus hitting them for an UNGODLY amount of Damage[45,505,960]! Corvintheus dealt 1 damage. You received $48,000,000 and 534 experience. (600 stamina hit)

                            (until some 50 or more mils come, this is good enough )

                              1/ I would work with the assumption that Runes are part of the Arena Formula. Runes are part of the PvP framework and it would be unconventional that the Dev went out off their way in a PvP Event to exclude Runes.

                              2/ Your AWAY loadout should be the one with the best loadout: Resist gear, resist gems, runes, etc
