    Wouldn't it be cool if we were the captains of our own ship?

    If we could set up fights, in our own maps (dimensions) and give out our own rewards (items from the cash shop)

    It would sort of be like arenas, but we would control it. Folks could build really kickass dimensions, just made for fighting..and it would give them a chance to show them off.

    Every week it could be hosted in a different dimension. It would make a bigger market for crafted dimensions items as well as get people to buy more dimension stuff off the cash shop (not to mention the rewards that would be purchased)

    We could even make a website with a kind of "ranking" on it. Different "leagues" and the teams that are in each league.

    I think it would be really fun!

    PS- the possibilities are endless...there could be underwater fights (boggling dimension) etc.

    Not that I'm really for Arenas but here's a crazy thought.

    What if, they just added Arenas for those that feel like doing them, and then "here we go", don't balance around it.

    There's already is and will always be a "meta" and unbalance/QQ so I don't see why not.

    Probably just a matter of wasting time/money on content that few will probably bother with, depending on the balance (like if literally only 1 comp was viable, no one would bother).

    Or in the spirit of player held tournaments and what not, you could just let people "craft" arenas with Dimensions and have pvp modes for it. Nothing to lose there. /shrug

    Yeah this lol. Dimensions are brilliant, would be cool if it eventually went the way of a "Foundry" like Neverwinter Online has. Player created content ftw.

    The problem is they've done this, and what they've concluded is probably roughly: About 1/5 as many as would leave.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Come on people!! Don't you think the PvP need something to spice it up a little?

    I am not complaining about combat system or maps etc. Just make some kind of "tournament" or "guild vs guild", i don't care about the number...... just make it more visible and competitive. (I really don't care if it is an Arena with its current definition)

    I don't really see why they can't just give an optional little area for people to set up a 5v5 if they wanted to.

    Saying no to arenas because it will show imbalance is like saying no to dueling for the same reason, silly IMO.

    Just let people play it and state clearly that you balance for 10v10+.

    .... no idea why I can't edit/delete my double post earlier lol.

    Your right about grp duel being arena style not thinking right my bad. lol :P , but either way still Trion don't put arena's in this game does not need them. Now I do know I like to see more world pvp type objectives and sure many others would too. Like to see a new Conquest that be nice also

    Historically, arenas have resulted in catastrophic failures of other forms of PvP, because the rated arenas require careful balancing, and unrated arenas aren't actually interesting.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)
