Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Arena participation

Something weird I noticed in the rewards for the last arena. I did the 5 star arena and put in 4.5 million. Checked my rank and it said 11.000 something. So I got the rewards and I was in the 31-60% bracket. So that means there were at most 36.000 players.

In the 4 star basic arena I did 800k points and was rank 57.000 something. I placed 27-45% so that's at least 127k players.

Seems weird that so little play 5 star arena.

Doesn't add up.

    I guess you're assuming everyone spreads out and does multiple arenas. And some do, and sometimes that is a good idea. But I should point out that if you focused all your attention on the 5* arena, you probably would have ended up in the 11%-30% bracket and doubled your 5* shard rank rewards. So, maybe not so weird that many people focus on one or the other.

    I think a lot of people are just scared of the 5* arena, thinking they need to put up absurd numbers just to get anything. But a tiny bit more than what you did generally gets 1000 5* shards and 100 6* shards. Not bad.

    Two thoughts:
    First, remember the refresh time on 5*s. For free to play players, that limits the number of uses we'll get out of those champs. So we have to choose between the two featured arenas. If half go to 4* and half to 5* you wind up with a lot less than in basic for either.

    Second, similar to DNA's reply, early to mid-game players may not have the 5* roster to do much in either featured arena, so they focus on basic. Which has the most attainable rank rewards.
