    Default PvP for SL Idea: Arena Pit in Dimensions for controlled Arena combat

    PvP for SL Idea: Arena Pit in Dimensions for controlled Arena combat
    I made this suggestion in the Dimension forum in beta on one of my post, but this could be a interesting idea for PvP as well in Storm Legion.

    *Arena Pits
    -Special arena pit that allow players to pick the allied teams and fight each other in them to win points. -Arena Master, the dimension owner inputs the rules of the arena before the match, and the game handles the rest.
    -rules like, if FFA, or if is 1v1 or 5vs5 etc, and how many rounds of fighting, and how many teams fighting, like 1v1v1 or 3v3v3 etc.
    -Arena Master can place traps on their Arena design.
    what this means is that the Arena can be customized to have traps and LoS locations. The Arena Master can make an Arena map similar to SWTOR's huttball if they wanted.

    the Arena Master decides on the number of teams in a single match. aka 1 team vs 1 team. or 3 way teams, etc.

    the Arena Master choose Team size, aka the number of player on each team. 2 player teams, 3 player teams, 4 player teams, 5 player teams, - 10 player teams, 15 player teams,, whatever.

    The Arena Master chooses how many rounds before victor team is chosen who has the most points in the end.

    Arena Master can choose the arena mode as well, modes are like the objectives and mechanics of the fight. Such as full death match in which the objective is simply to kill all players on enemy team and be last standing. other objective could be that each team selects a General, the general is buffed with extra Defense, Speed and HP. the goal is to protect your general while defeating other team's generals.



    many people been asking for Arena. this is a way to give it to them without messing up balance of gear distribution from PvP.

    I asked for group duels in Dimensions, and the rest would be up to us. Hopefully they can throw us that bone - setting up our own 1-5v's and building our own fighting pits complete with spectators would be incredible.

    I don't need a ladder system or special gear, just the ability to make our own content.

    I can easily get behind this, though things would get complicated if a given public arena was popular enough. Perhaps restricting to friends only and then friending/removing people as needed is a better option.

    This sounds like a Rift bonus expansion add-on. How you would merge this into the current game is beyond me.

    Maybe just add tanks.

    We can clearly change "faction" flagging on the fly -- case-in-point, mind controlled players flagging red to other players -- so just create two dummy factions and allow people to align themselves with them in Dimensions.

    Boom, group "dueling".

    Even something as simple as that would be a very good start (along with cross-shard dimensions ofc).

    But what the OP suggested would be more interesting, although less likely to happen. Even better would be a real arena system with a rating, as that would give us automatic matchmaking (much faster to find someone to fight, and the rating will ensure they're usually at the same skill level than you).

    Frankly I see group "flagging" as a good prototype -- and then some, since players could build their own arenas within dimensions. Cross-shard dimensions would be nice, too, even if there were limitations (minimum rating/friends only/idk).

    it's not a bad idea, but there are many more things to be considered first.

    What, for example?

    A complete arena system would certainly take some time to create, and couldn't come soon, but something like group "flagging" in dimensions wouldn't be too hard to make, while bringing a lot of enjoyment for players who are tired of WFs being almost the only option for PvP.

    With cross server communication amd now defiants and guardians grouping it would make it to easy to farm points.

    So, if you want them sure have them but only for fun.

    It was easy enough to "farm" if people truly wanted to, but it was horribly time/effort inefficient.

    That being said, I guess my suggestion was on a "no rewards" basis.
