About time for a 5* basic arena?

Its been 2 years since the last arena update, and I believe 3 years since we got the basic 4* arena. Hasn't the game progressed since then till the point where a 5* basic arena should be coming about now?

Especially given the pivot recently to phase out 4*s, the majority of the player population is now needing specific 5*s in order to clear content. Popping crystals just isn't a viable way to wait for that single champ that you need. I'm still waiting to dupe my 5* Star Lord after 3 years+.

    It's long overdue, but I doubt it'll be implemented any time soon. This would be the single best way to make good on the statement that 5* are more available to players who have reached Cavalier status and would also ease summoners into the numerous restrictions act 6 presents. I just get the impression Kabam won't see it as profitable enough so it won't happen.

    I second this. I have seen people say that “kabam will make less money” from this. But I think they are wrong. Giving players more ways to engage and spend time in the game where they feel they are progressing won’t hurt their bottom line. No whales will turn to guppies due to a 5* Basic arena. We all survived the 4* Basic arena, and we will all survive this.

    A lot of things need updating. I’m on board with this one.
  • This one keeps popping up. More and more frequently lately. *hint, hint* *nudge, nudge* I've gone into deep detail the benefits of a 5* Basic Arena. The best move would be to introduce the 5* Basic WITH the 6* Feature. Roll both out at the same time. That way, Arena gets 2 major updates in 1 shot, and the cutoffs go down across the board. All the while, inspiring more players to do arena in general.

    By the time a champ reaches the Basic arena, they've already been in the feature crystal enough times that it wouldn't have an impact on sales of those. Basic Arena would give more players a shot at getting said champs with the 1-10% rank rewards. Also, more milestones. Which means access to more units, BCs, and Gold. All of which are always in need.

    Interesting how certain posts always gets moved to the suggestions section where they basically are left to die.

    It would be great to hear a comment from Kabam on this.

    The main reason we haven't heard back is likely due to the fact they cannot say what's what if they don't have a solid timeframe or plan for it. It has been acknowledged by Kabam. Last I heard, they were looking into the possibility of doing this. Considering the amount of people who play Arena on the regular, hopefully they're putting some more time into getting this into play.

    I still say we need BOTH a 6* Feature and 5* Basic at this point. The inflated scores in the 5* Feature Arena detour the average player from really going at it. Not to mention the fact that people are grinding 60-80+ million points for a 5* champ. That in itself is ridiculous as 5* champs are no longer the top tier.

    The demand for a well rounded 5* roster in Act 6 is pretty apparent. Let's also note the more 5* champs we can attain, the more likely we'll be to duplicate when opening crystals and in turn, get more 6* shards. Who doesn't want more of those? Lol. Plus, more rank rewards would be available, thus increasing the overall availability of shards in general. All in all, we need new Arenas. Many aspects of the game have evolved over the last 2 years and Arena has not. It's high time those 2 Arenas become a reality IMO.

    Fully agreed. It is time for Kabam to make good their statement that 5*s and 6*s have become more accessible to those with the cavalier title.
