      I'll certainly click to join. Can't knock back freebie loot. As to ongoing participation, I'll take Arena 4 on its merits when it comes out.

        Sure, I'll join in. Can we start now? Just think of it, Arena IV, at your door. . . a six month endeavor that will have you whistling Valhalla, . . .
        Arena Rewards
        Kobo's Fingernail or Toenail = Arena IV?
        Rusty Gloves = Arena III - I will give you an ice shard for effort if I could send you one.
        Ragnarok = Arena II - Good battles, bad hiding. . . .
        Genesis = Arena 1 - I enjoyed it. Not too long, play as you go. . .

            No it won't. It will twist whatever new/old game mechanic the devs want to roll out into something that completely ruins a perfectly adequate system.

              Of course I will. Getting the top ranks in these things is hard (and possibly unfair), but there are great rewards for all the arenas for entering and putting a little bit of effort in. I missed the first half on vacation and only did a battle or two a day the rest and was comfortably gladiator on this arena. Yes I would like to be top ranked, but at least it is worth entering and testing it out. Get a few prizes for some fun.

                as long as it is based on how many favor points you can buy/afford, probably will do what i can for free and not bother with the rest.

                    No reason not to enter the next one, but it's pretty boring at this point. I quit battling probably 5 days in and got Gladiator, that's good enough for me. If people want to throw money at CA for refills, then all power to them, but I never will. Doesn't bother me, most of us still get 2 or 3 items for nothing.

                      I'll do it, but whether I participate fully will depend on how fun it is. The first two were good and I made the second highest rank in each. This one I only made the second lowest. 'nough said.

                          Like most people said, if it is anything like this one not only I won't participate I will stop playing entirely. This one annoy me so much that I stopped signing onto CA for two weeks. This is after signing on everyday since I join in Nov 09 and not missing a day. I do have to work and can only do 2 or 3 battles a day. I can afford to drop $150 to be an AA if I want but I just refuse to do it.

                            This arena formatt was terrible. Never again will I spend SO MUCH TIME on one. Also hated the 20 stamina buy in. I thought we learned from Arena 1? Guess not. So that's a big, fat NO. Not if its like Arena 3. Not even for the bottom prize.
                            Take a shot.

                              I'll say I don't really mind the group aspect and I appreciate that they're trying to get us more involved with other players. And I won't fault them for allowing refills for FP, because in the end they have to make a profit with the game to keep it running.

                              My biggest issue with this Arena was the way they rewarded losses. I think if you didn't get any points from losing, you would have seen a lot fewer refills, and a lot less angry/disappointed customers. The complaints from the first two Arenas focused on the ability of high-level players to reach down and hit much lower levels to maintain their rank; they sort of resolved that this time by grouping high and low levels together, so the high levels could still pick on low levels, but for the most part there were other high levels on your team that could help take up the slack and keep that to a minimum.

                              But the practice of rewarding losers completely ruined the competitive aspect of Arena for me. I won more than 90% of my individual battles and more than 2/3 of my team battles, but because rewards were based on points rather stats, I didn't make the cut. I'm a little disappointed, but I knew it was a points race from the beginning. But if you're going to make a points race and claim it's a competition, you shouldn't be rewarding failure.

                              Points for losses in regular guild battles are fine, because it gives people an incentive to continue the fight even when the system matches them with a overpowered guild. But once you put a refill button in there and hand out rewards based on points, you've completely destroyed an otherwise decent system.

                                for this one to make AA if you were a grinder you had to make about 4000 points on average per battle doing at least 9 battles a day to make it. So this would mean you would have to spend at least 20 tokens per battle hittime 20 targets around your level (or upward) plus win at least 50% of the time.

                                Great if you happened to be around level 200-300 (you could be a good pvp build or simply polymorph your way to a high score), terrible if you were around level 400+. At that point you have to refill even if grinding to some degree to have made it.

                                I finished Hero. As it turned out if I did grind as above I could have finished Anihilator but I worked out early on I didn't want that shiny shiny helm that bad.

                                I do hope they keep the real top prize at the second tier as they have done with the trophy monster on top. The main thing I worry about is power creep. Right now stats still trump having big items but that could change.

                                I've played in all 3 arenas so far I see no reason why I wouldn't give Arena 4 a stab too - if only for the novelty of doing something different for a while.
