Could you guys give us arena. I know many people would fiddle around with it and many would do nothing but arena. I understand that you try to be unique, however arena is a type of PvP that many people would love to have in Rift. I just want to see this as an option for people to play. I personally don't enjoy Warfronts or Conquest. The reason for that is, the individual player has no value when large groups steam roll around the field in an unorganized manner. I'm the person who enjoys organized PvP with strategy developed to counter another teams composition.
I know that you could give us arena, just try to make this an option for people in Rift. Thanks Daglar!
