MAIN RULES OF THE FORUMS

Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

PURPOSE OF THE FORUMS

help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.

Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.

SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
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.

- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

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 Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.

- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)

- 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.

    looking at his team wins (71%), he is also extremely selective which battle he joins as per team composition and activity in first 5 minutes, so he avoids "sure" losses

    I join random battles as my schedule permits, my team wins is at 44%

      You can farm quite a few FPs for free, enough for refills and generals depending on your stamina stat and dedication to farming.

      Edit - yes it is possible to get Alpha, just like in the last arena, but it takes a lot of work and you need a strong PvP build to hit mostly 240s. Another way is to blend farmed Fps for refills on sure wins. At my rate of farming I could refill in the arena a 2-3 times per week, and I am not much of a farmer. Most people are more likely to achieve the 2nd highest rank with zero FP, but why is that 'bad'? This game exists because of paying customers, and those who pay do so for enjoyment, and because it provides an advantage. If there wasn't an advantage, why would people pay?

        Just to know, did he ever buy FPs to have his current build or level?

          The one and only response; no you don't have to pay a single dime to be 'competitive' or to experience all aspects of the game successfully.

              I've bought quite a few FPs, but I've spent virtually all of them on chests. I've refilled a grand total of 2 times in over 18 months of play time. One stamina and one energy.

                Not true at all for me. Most people seem happy to have me on their team, from what I can tell. Sure, I die fast, but I usually take at least 2 people with me by the end and they're usually active ones. My build allows me to both farm 240 pointers and help the team at the same time.

                  Honestly pay a close attention to what happens when a new monster is released. They die in minutes, regardless of HP, and people refill over and over and over again to try to be the first person to collect the new loot. People will complain here about doing it, but they still do it. That much of a cash influx in such a short time is a decent indication that this is what the general population wants. That's my take on why the devs keep releasing bigger and badder monsters.

                  If the next monster release doesn't have this influx of cash, then the devs may start to think they've saturated the player base with monsters and update other parts of the game, or maybe finish Atlantis (Killer Pooh?) or something other than monsters. But as long as we the players show the devs we're willing to shell out the cash in truckloads for new monsters, they'll keep giving them to us.


                  Notes
                  And as for free speech, it doesn't exist on these forums. Sorry but that's just how it is.

                  Please try to remain on topic here on out and no more random spam posts. Thanks.

                      You knew the arena was coming approx 3-4 weeks ahead, you could have farmed enough coins to refill every battle during that period.

                        Have you considered that spam is what what has kept CA a viable community? Then again, I do not spam, I gyro. With lots of tzatziki.

                          So what percent of Alphas will have gotten there without using refills (baught, or farmed fp's) my bet would be less than 20%

                            Nobody ever said you could be the top in this game without FP, inside or outside the arena. If being on top means so much that you're willing to throw money at it, you may be on top as far as I'm concerned. I'm having fun at the 60th percentile of players or so, but still all the cash in their pockets.

                              Look. Plenty of us are getting along fine without spending a single dime.

                              Like you said, it's a game. You don't have to dominate the whole thing; if you choose to and use a CC doing it, don't come here complaining.

                              Don't blame the devs for being 'greedy' when it is you who want to keep up desperately with the new content without sacrifice. WHOO I WANT TO KEEP MY 5000 BSI and still hunt Malekus. Keep dreaming pal.

                              Since when was the world not about money anyway?
