why don’t you like arena?

on the forums, I’ve seen a lot of people saying “arena sucks” “I hate arena” etc etc.

just curious as to why?

I like getting to use champs I normally wouldn’t in fights, and it’s basically free units and crystals.

    I personally don't mind the grind because I usually just go for the milestones. What I don't like about arena is when they don't throw specials and im sitting there vaiting for 5 minutes and dancing around until i accidentally get them to sp3 and they just decide to instantly use it

    You mean for matches 9-14? I usually use 5* R5s / 6* R2s for matches 7-15, so they can just tank the sp3 and not die. Baiting wastes too much time at that streak count. 😂

    its a long and boring grind. The AI is horrible too

    Not after past 14. They react as per normal after that and don’t have a pseudo AoN.

    I feel like even after those rounds there is still a good amount of baiting. But like @SpideyFunko I then sometimes forget about the power bar and get melted

    It’s a bit boring I guess and sometimes I have to play with champs I don’t enjoy

    90 percent of arena is trying and failing to bait specials (I'm glad there's supposed to be an arena AI change coming). But overall, it's just the same thing over and over again, not a fan. I like using different characters, but I like the challenges that nodes bring.

    It's nice to get the extra units and battle chips, but like everyone says it's just too much of a grind, especially if you're wanting the featured or even basic champion where only the people with the most 5 and 6 stars have even a shot at getting them.

    Actually, you can have only 3 6*s or 3 5* R5s, boost them up, and refresh like crazy over 3 days and still get the featured champ.

    The biggest draw of arena comes from units for me. On Saturday I had 16k units, today I’m sitting at roughly 17.2k (saving up for July 4th).

    The shards from the ranked rewards allow me to open more 4*s (solving my ISO needs), and 5*s (solving my roster needs), and BCs give me gold (solving my gold needs).

    Yes it can be boring and a drag at times, but to not have headaches and shortages in other areas, it’s pretty worth it, especially when you couple it with watching television, commuting from point A to B etc. Rather than surf Facebook or Twitter or Insta, it’s time put to better use.

    I think that the "grind" is not a good feature in any area of the game.
    Essentially, that translates to either really tough and not enjoyable or monotonous uninteresting content.
    Arenas fall into the monotonous uninteresting content for me and I would rather learn the champ in quests that are a bit more interesting.

    If arenas can be made more interesting and less of that monotonous grind, I would definitely give them another go.

    I’m personally a fan of grinding out for stuff, but due to the way the game works it’s not as nearly as satisfying lol.

    Can't stand arena and only do 4* basic milestones and t1a T4b when it's on other than that there's far better things I'd rather be doing with my time.

    i dont mind arena too much apart from the invisible "all or nothing" node that seems to exists. apart from that i think the milestones should offer a little more for higher levelled summoners. not too much but there are improvements to be made

    With all mentioned above, I'd add it doesn't have any skill involved. It's just grinding, and most of players just can't compete without investing ton of units. Even if you can, getting a 5* is not enough of reward imo. People tend to rank 6* more and more, and we still don't have 5* basic and any 6* arena. And all that reach get reacher thing.
    Another problem for me is team building - you always have either to scroll champs to available, or press help request and wait for it to process. As far as I remember, you can't filter all champs to see only 5* r3 for example.
    I only do couple of first milestones for units occasionally, mostly when 3 day arena event is on

    Because it is mindnumbingly boring and repetitive. It's the only decent way to earn units for ftp players and that kind of makes it a chore.

    I don't mind Grinding for something, but for me it's more therapeutic. I can zone out and get into the repetition. It calms me.

    It’s one of the best places to get units which is really cool but, even so it is boring to such a great extent.
