Since PvP is so important in UO

  1. Anyone been trying the new Arena yet? Since this seems to be the only new thing coming from the Devs.

    I think all the arena posts are being kept in the test shard forum for now. In my opinion the arena might get used on the larger shards, but not much on the smaller ones.

    Arenas would be great if you could restrict certain skills, items, etc. Until then it's completely imbalanced.

    I think they should make the "arena" exactly what it is, a separate shard you can copy stuff to. Individual shards will never use it, but the idea of fighting people from all over... sounds more enticing.

    Haha, so I'm assuming you don't like the arenas or PVP for that matter? How about posting what you think should be implemented to help the game? Also, perhaps you could post where it says what exactly is expected to be implemented by the Devs since you seem to know exactly what they are planning. :hahaha:

    I think they need to further it and build entire instances so you can fight for something against people from any shard. Like new dungeon maps to fight in and you either win by capture the flag rules or just totally eradicating your enemy.

    I logged in at like 3pm on a Saturday afternoon not long ago and found a grand total of one other person on the Arena Test shard. Nobody cares.

    The Arena is a good idea, im not sure about alot of people, but i dont like to spend much time on TEST SHARDS because it doesnt do anything for me other than to see whats in the near future.

    That is the reason I'm not on TC Arena, i like the idea, for those who havent tested it yet, IT's in a Tram-Ruleset until you Enter the arena, consent is needed to participate in the fight's and even if it isnt used as a passive form of playing im sure it'll be used by the EM's for events anyway. just a few more tweaks to it and it'll be perfect, Good job on the arena.

    PvM Adjusting should be next (along with bug fixes)

    They could have it where your record could be displayed on the char on production shards. Lets say as long as you have a copy of that char on the Battle Arena shard you can display record, rank or whatever else they might deem worthy of having as a title. The only problem is how many of these shards would you have (East/West coast, Asian, Europe, Aussie?).
