Arena is back to mirror matches...BORING

Before all the recent changes, the nerfs, buffs etc the arena was pretty fun to play. Now its all mirror matches all the time.

I have both Revans and it has become more like work to climb everyday instead of a fun game. These mirror matches are never ending.

I long for the rock paper scissors meta at least I actually prefer more like 5-6 so you have to actually think of ways to beat your opponents like in grand arena. I feel it takes far more skill for Grand arena than in Squad Arena yet the payout is hugely different...smh.

I guess Squad arena is simply there to remind everyone of the pay gap that keeps increasing in this game. If you have other thoughts or explanations I am curious to hear. I don't think squad arena shows who is in fact the best more like who whales the hardest at any given time.

  • Are you actually suggesting something that would clearly make the game way more fun?!?!?! How dare you!? I mean this is despicable! 5-6 teams? What do you think this is? How are the whales going to secure their free 500 crystals a day?

    You're clearly out if your mind to suggest that a game should be about FUN or that a PvP mode should be competitive! Shame, shame, mods delete this post and ban this guy for life OMG how dare he.

    Well I thought a bit of sarcasm was needed.

    Thank you for your sarcasm its always welcome in my posts.

    but TBH

    I don't understand the point in spending money anymore to win squad arena since now it becomes so repetitive even if you win its pretty meaningless.

    I wish EA didn't have its hand on Star Wars games given its past and present obvious pay to win scandals hopefully Disney will make their own gaming company like they are with this streaming service and they can improve the future ha.

    You really think Disney would be any better? They are a corporation and will milk you just as much as EA ever will.

    Here is the thing, first of all it becomes addictive. Getting 400-500 crystals from arena alone is a ridiculous amount and those who have rested on that for so long are scared to death to compromise it. This is why they support crazy ideas like nerfing everyone to the ground to make sure that the only viable squad in arena is the one that's the absolutely hardest to get. I've seen people say things like "nerfs are bad for the game", "nerfs are not the answer", ect, that's when people were asking for Jedi Revan and Jolee to be nerfed. The same people now are literally begging to nerf Anakin because he beats their prized squad.

    Also this makes their overall purchase seem cheaper and justifies it in their eyes. When they have 500 crystals for free daily, it's like getting everything on a discount. Spending money feels like they're receiving twice as much.

    Addiction is a dangerous thing, you lose your ability to distinguish fun from boring, good from bad because the only thing in your mind is the outcome and those juicy 500 crystals from rank 1.

    Yeah. That's why grand arena championship is coming and the rewards are huge... Mark my words on that.
    Arena isn't competitive and want get there anymore. At some point people catch up.

    But faster matches. The fastest Darth Revan in combination with FBast wins.
    So it is reduced to mods. Speed is of the essence and not good moves or strategy or whatever.
    So the real problem is mods. Good speed mods are very rare and the mod 2.0 is essentially more rng than before. I have from old tomes far more +20 speed than today. And i farm mods every day. This splicing is simple more rng waste of time and brings no satisfactory gameplay.
    And that is actually what is strongly missing.

    still better than the JKR mirror meta for two reasons; 1) there aren't nearly as many DR/malak teams as there were JKR teams 2) Matches are faster.
    Personally i also like it alot more because i drop way less on defense, but i get that that doesn't apply to everyone.

    Lol - the "have"s approve of an exclusive meta that nerfs anything that threatens them. Shocking. :D ;)

    Obviously, i'm not going to pretent i don't like winning. I'm fully aware of my own bias, that's why that last point got a seperate paragraph.
    What's shocking to me is that you're part of the have nots ;)

    Yea you suck money hungry Devs!! Ruin everything!
  • It's been mirror matches from the beginning actually. Every time the meta changes so does the image in the mirror, but mirrors always been there
  • My idea for arena is make it like galactic war, after a toon is defeated u can't use them(unless reviveable). So it will force ppl to use other teams, if everyone gangs up on the 1st place dr team then eventually he can be taken out. Every day at reset u get your toons back. It would shake arena up big time.
