Hey all,
 
As you may all know, S2 3v3 arenas are pretty much nonexistent due to some unfortunate game missteps at the start of the season (though Carbine taken some positive steps towards correcting them).  We're working on changing that! Help us revitalize PVP and join us for some 3vs3 Arenas on weekends! We're starting with weekends since that works for most people but this should hopefully lead to more arenas throughout the week! 
 
Every evening, starting at 8PM EST (5PM PST), there will be players queueing up for 3v3 arenas.  
 
If you have questions/suggestions check our Mini FAQ below/ post on this thread/PM us in-game:  Dominion:  Bonebraker@Entity  Exile: Steel Inquisitor@Entity
 
Special thanks to Bonebraker/Baal/anyone else I missed for starting this! 
 
Mini FAQ:
Spoiler

 

Update:  Thanks to everyone who participated last night and made this a success! People had a solid night of queue pops so we know the PVP arenas community is out there.  Please give us your feedback on here or via the reddit thread and let us know what you think about doing these on Wednesdays as well!

 

Update 2: New Arena Rankings out for this past week! SEASON 2 ARENA 3V3 TEAM RANKINGS

 

Update 3: With the success we had this weekend (especially on Saturday) + requests from some arena pvper who can't make it on weekends, we'd like to start making an every day event starting immediately!  Hope to see you all tonight!

Definitely down for this. I know another team that's looking to play as well. But if Steel Inquisitor and Baal Archimonde are playing their Engineer tanks. I think i'd much rather save the time and kill myself. Lmao.

Steel Inquisitor here.  Haha, no engi tank for me in arenas.  That's no fun for anyone involved.  (I plan to get completely slaughtered in a DPS build. :D )

I will see if my team can't be bothered to join in on this! However, chances are we'll only be able to do a handful of matches because we'll be helping our raid team 2 at 8:30.

Finally got to try arena!  Had to invite from zone chat but some people were nice enough to join.  Got stomped most of the games but that's to be expected and not a big deal.  Maybe if there was a set schedule of when to queue (hopefully more than just saturday) then there would be greater coordination of teams.  Thx for setting this up.

Howdy! Glad you got to try them out!  As for scheduling, the original post states the queues would be starting around 8PM Eastern Time so any time after that would be a sure bet.    As for greater coordination, depending which faction/server you're on, there are Arena circles you can join as well!  Just ask in zone/pvp chat for an invitation.   

 

Entity Arena Circles:

 

  - Exile:  Exile Arenas

 

  - Dominion:  Entity Arena 

 

Unfortunately I'm not sure about WarHound peeps and whether they have Arena or some other PVP circle you can join.  Once I find out I'll go ahead and update the original post with that info.

Didn't get to do many (6 pretty respectable though!) because one of our teammates had IRL pull them away but those were crazy quick queues and a ton of fun too! Thanks for organizing this, we'll try to be there every Saturday life willing! :D

First point that i would like to mention: special thank for steel inquisitor for making that post

 

Also guys, me and baal have been pushing the satursday night arena for some reason, during week day a couple of the people doing bg are doing raid, and during the holidays vacation most of people are free, but after that school will start back for some of us, and not every1 will be able to play during week.

 

Of course our goal is to have maybe 2 or 3 night going, so people can play more arena, we are chill people enjoying pvp in this game, and like steel said, we want arena to revival: wich lead me to this

 

Second: for Xmast and new year week, we wanan try to do arena on wednesday instead of saturday, and if it work, after those 2 week, maybe try to do it on both of those day

 

 

 

Anyway, Yesterday i've seen i think around 13 15 diferent team, and the queue were rpetty much insta, try to spread out the word once again, and thx everybody to help us out with it

This was a lot of fun. I lost a lot. Made a lot of mistakes. My team had great morale through it all (even though we were losing quite a bit) and I think thats really important. I'm glad I got a good majority of it streamed and recorded. We played 18 games total. Won 3 lost 15. I got 13 of them recorded. I streamed for a couple hours. Hope we can do this more often.

 

Here is a link to the highlights on twitch. There are a lot of teachable moments and mistakes I made to learn from: http://www.twitch.tv...file/highlights

 

We need people to keep advertising these in battlegrounds, guilds, circles and major cities. Make a macro and just hit the button on your bar at the beginning of battlegrounds and at the end of the match. The more people that know about it the more people we can get in the mix.

 

Nice job to all the teams that participated. Hopefully we can get more nights where people que up!

 

SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!! :D :D :D

 

GG's! :D

I am glad I managed to get in some action last night! It was fun testing out different Medic healing builds. My biggest comment of the night is this:

Nerf Stalkers. That is all.

... "What. The. *cupcake*."

Pls no.

 

The issue lies within the silly crit sev scaling, and that goes for all classes. SS and Stalker just benefit from it the most. The classes are fine - the stat system is not.

Hey all,

 

Just updating this to let everyone know we're still doing arena nights on weekends!  Trying to push for more nights (Friday - Sunday) if people have an interest.

Howdy all.  Just another reminder (and bump) that arenas will be going on this weekend Friday-Sunday (post title has been updated to reflect this change)! We have some more people interested with the new PVP tokens incoming so that should translate to more teams! See you this weekend!
