Suggested Arena Rank Scoring Change

Since we are not doing real-time PvP (and probably could not and should not on a mobile game), I would suggest making your arena rank/payout the highest level that you attained during the day. Payout can still be at 6pm local time.

This would eliminate what I frequently hear as the largest complaint in arena: it is a real hassle to time your arena run at a specific time of day when life is usually quite busy.

Making this change would maintain the integrity of the ranking system but allow players to do PvP battles when it is convenient and not be penalized for the specific time of day when they do their run. I know that would make my gameplay experience much more enjoyable.

  • They can't do this. Way more people would make 1st place each day.
    The system is fine. It just needs to be players choice on when to play

    The system is not fine. Especially in shards where there are discord groups and you get gang-banged from 1st place to 25 at pay-out.

    The place where the discord groups gets advertised is called "PvP and Rivalry". Rather "Circumventing game mechanics and make it a great experience for the other people". Adding insult to injury, most of the people interested in such deals are whales that bought everything on the table - and on ships department there's LOT of things on the table. I'm no socialist but this is a clear case of the rich getting even richer by manipulating the market.

    Sad! Make SWGOH great again!

  • If someone supported the development team by spending money on the game they deserve the advantage.

    The payout time is a good time for most people. it was designed this way ( you cannot please everyone )

    I have no trouble maintaining rank 1 in my shard for fleet arena. sometimes i have to spent 50 crystals to refresh my turns to do it but i win 400 crystals so... yeah. i dont see any problems with the current system.

    I completely agree with you. They could try to do like Hearthstone/Blizzard do in arena.
    Make it ranked by tiers, and reward people everyday or weekly based on the highest tier achieved.
    Of course they would need to merge some arenas, maybe all of them, into one to make it viable.
    In that way it would be much more fun to play and we would be able to play whenever we want.
    Maybe make it like 25 regular ranks and above rank 1 make 10 more legendary ranks with better rewards.
    Every arena reset players drop like 5 tiers, so they have to keep playing to maintain or improve their ranks.
    I'm almost uninstalling this game due to the pain it is becoming to be on top 10/5 arenas each day.

    Another tip would be instead of making stores reseting on static times, make it like every player gets 3 to 4 free resets on every shop a day. Not everybody has the time needed to do so, making it unfair.

    Other stuff has to be reworked, like energy bonuses, could be given daily at the mail box at once.

    Finally, the rancor and AAT raids could be done in TIERS like TB are. But instead of rewarding like it actualy does, making two prizes, one for the overall score of the guild, and another based on damage ranks individually, not (like till 500k dmg, rank I, 500k to 1.5Mi rank II, etc.). Doing so everybody would be able to attack on diferent times and it would not be like a competition, but colaborative.

    I have more ideas to making this game better, but it's enough for today.
  • This is a great idea. For some reason my arena payouts are at 4am and I just can't wake up to do them so I have no hope of getting into the top spots
  • I still don't see a problem with the number of people getting first. It's not like there is only one person on each shard getting first each day. I doubt it would increase the number of people getting first too dramatically. And, even if it did, I don't see how that is problematic.

    On my shard I share my payout time with 4 others in top—10. Currently only 1 of us receives rank 1 rewards. With your suggestion I'm sure all 5 of us would receive rank 1 rewards, hence increasing our total crystal income dramatically.

    Does EA have master crafters that craft the crystals by hand?

    No, but they do have crystals they want to sell and would sell a lot less if all you had to do was to make it to first once a day.

    This part of the game isn’t going to change. It’s not. It would be nice if, for instance, you move halfway around the world or even just three time zones away that your payout time could change. That part would be nice.

    Or if you have 15 capable people of taking first one hour and one the next hour that they allow for people to change hours. That would be nice.

    But I don’t see them changing it any time soon.

    Humor props to you.

    Exactly! Collusion has made what should be a free for all Arena into a mafia cartel and its kids the ring or else. It’s completely broken Squad Arena and I don’t see a way past this digital mafia system other than a revamp of how the payout is dictated. As in number of wins and win ties broken by damage done. Both systems currently are programming already in the game in the form of raids. People would spend crystal to climb higher and get better total scores. Even have a loss take away from the win total. More crystal purchases and at the same time the mafia cartels are eliminated. Win/Win for CG!!! @CG_Kozispoon :)
