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 Alternative

are we able to get an alternative to arena until the scheduled one is brought back? Perhaps a Sunday styled one where theres not much to lose incase the game crashes.

Or are you reducing services to relieve pressure off the servers to keep core functionality up?

    Just something to keep us ticking over. I think coding a whole new arena with new rewards will take a while, but they have the code for a sunday arena - it should be easy enough to shuffle that forward, gives us a few shards and something to do once this T4B arena closes. Maybe run another resource one, T1A or something.

    Just brainstorming something which can be dropped with little effort, and if we crash it wont be the end of the world vs something like if you were pushing for DPXF

    I hate arena. It's so boring. It is a minimum wage job, where you work like a monotonous drone to get either decent unit milestones or battlechips which will give you 100 units per the million.
    Just my opinion though.

    Setting something up like that will require development work, and I’d rather the game devs fix these issues to be honest!

    not the best mode in the game, but its a nessecary evil. Its the easiest way to keep progressing in game.

    I assume that even if bugs are worked out by the weekend, that Kabam is pushing back the ENTIRE 2-cycle Sasquatch Arena. So no Sasquatch on Monday either.

    BUT would be nice if they were to run some other champ as Feature on Monday (as well as some other Basic 4* too) that would be just 3 days (no 2nd cycle).

    Although that would push-out by 1 week the whole BASIC 4* HERO Schedule (someone recently had posted 2 pics worth for schedule out many months).

    EDIT... or actually looking at the Basic Schedule, looks like there was one of those occasional 2-week worth of old champs scheduled for now anyways. BASIC of Anni and Domino (before Longshot in 2 weeks). So would be fine just reducing one of those “Older” reruns by 1/2 (even if moving Sasquatch to next Thursday)...

    they should already have the coding for a sunday cornucopia arena, should just be a case of scheduling forward. My concern is if it strains the servers .ore

    I just got notification "Win Annihilus in Arena NOW!"

    Don't know if it's just one of those random BS notifications or it actually means something.

    Yes, it is not the best. It is the worst. It doesn't have to be as bad as it is, they could make it like Incursions or let you do it with somebody else or even buff the amount of units you get to make it less of a grind.

    If you dont like it. Dont do it. Theyve already said they want to create an alternative to arena eventually, but that'll take time.

    Thats not the point of this post. This is for those who want to do it so they can progress, get units, gold and bcs.

    Oh, my mistake. I didn't know. I'll stop now, lol.
    I don't plan on doing arena anytime soon anyways.

    Same, could be a pre-programmed message, could be them messing about with the codes trying to get it back online asap. Doubt we'll see an arena before the weekend unless they do something like resource or cornucopia arenas

    So you never lose out from arena going down, congratulations. But why should that impact the average person? I don't think I'd do whatever arena they put up, but it's not a half bad idea for those hardcore grinders.

    I get about 200-300 units a day from arena.. so its hitting me hard..
