- 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.

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- 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.

    New functionality; now, if you're stuck in a queue for 10 minutes you are reset and can join a new one

    Also new functionality; you are always stuck in a queue

    The operation this season of Colosseum is a disaster. I can't wait an hour to do three battles, or sometimes none! Let them start by fixing this problem because it cannot be played normally. Even Colosseum's first year with all its lag has been better than this season. Although many of us did not reach the general, at least you got good points to buy in the Shop. The second season was probably the best. Many with mediocre accounts managed to get Trundle, something that I suppose could not be repeated. And it seems fine to me, but if you earn more points for the shop, I have more incentive to go up but well, I guess I'll stay in gold or something going up and down like last year. Of course, if it can be played because that's how I prefer to put on a movie. Even I have had battles that after 10 minutes the battle was left without being finished. Disaster, disaster, disaster, ...

      So the general is a burlesque dancer with the stage name "Treacherous Feathers"?

        By my semi-complete running count I've been keeping, somewhere around 30% of my wins have not awarded points. Curiously, 100% of my losses have deducted points. Of course, I have no earthly idea how to 'prove' this to their satisfaction, as many others have tried. I should be into the middle of Silver by now, or so, but still stuck at the top of Bronze due to points not being awarded. I am very quickly losing the motivation to 'grind this out' to get to a high level, if the grind will not be rewarded properly.

          Impossible to get points- can't move up with No battles. And do try to keep them more even % 300levels against 5 !k or better levels isn't even a battle . Little guys are Mascacered.

            Timed out waiting for a battle, tried again. Waited 10 min, and timed out again-is no one else playing?

              It’s another crappy Colo Event that favor teams.

              For players (like myself) who don’t have the time commitment to join teams, we are SOL (an American expression where the polite form is “Sadly out of luck”).

              The team feature historically has been one of the most abused feature in this game. Enough said.

                  A new battle-matching mechanic must have been introduced in this season of Colosseum because getting into a battle seems to be much more tedious, far much so than in previous incarnations.
                  Worst. Colosseum. Ever.

                    Going from Silver II to Silver I, waiting a few minutes for a battle to having to wait long enough to call it quits (at least 25 minutes).
                    This is for singles.

                    I take it with a good proportion of those at the top of the ladder working in set teams/mini-teams to make the most of the Collosseum's "mechanics" only leaves an ever dwindling population of players to play random teams.

                    Nonetheless, the Leaderboard suggest there are no issues to move up the ranks. LOL

                      It's not about not having opponents to match with, it's about the matchmaking being broken/bugged.
                      The devs did say that they changed the matchmaking (reported 3 days ago on Discord by Retribution), and obviously something broke in the process.
                      When I get a match, I usually get it super quickly (within a minute). And then quite often I get no match at all (and the queue gets canceled).

                      And from what I've read, it's possibly worse in Set Teams. It happened that some waited 40+ minutes in queue. Which further shows it's bugged, as this season one of the "rules" is that the queue should be automatically canceled if no match is found after 10 minutes.

                        I have watched a number of people form teams and get nothing; no battles. I can't comment on all on the leaderboard, but some of them are definitely playing singles. It is curious that the leaderboard is similar to last Colosseum, so something seems to favor these players 🤷‍♂️🤑🤔🤣

                          Indeed. Just had a look at the Leaderboard and there are a couple of 3k+ regulars in the Random battles I've been in there.

                            I played 8 games one day, on the record it says 3, all defeats.
                            I played 3 games the next day, record was accurate. Sat for a half an hour trying to play more than three, and nothing.
                            Tonight, got ONE game, it's an hour later, record of one game, defeat.

                            Yeah, this is broken. Waste of time for now, hope they fix it.

                              Sadly this isn't true or at least, it's not working, because it gets stuck longer than 10 minutes and I still don't have button to click. Yesterday for me it got stuck for 30 minutes! Current Colosseum is so broken that yesterday I couldn't find a match for more than 1:30 hours and eventually I gave up and went to bed. This is how broken is current Colosseum. Also, when 10v10 starts, I get blue ball spinning and rollbacks. Seems like their servers get overloaded by traffic. Someone needs to address devs about those problems, because in this state, Colosseum is almost unplayable.

                              I've just sent an email to their support, giving them the feedback about current problems. Hope they read it and do something about them.
