Can we finally be rid of the top 1% in arena?

Now that we can officially "snipe" the #1 spot, from the top 5%, can we finally be rid of the top 1% in arena? This is a change that, IMVHO, is *long* overdue. I remember when the top 1% had thousands of spots. Now, the only people that get 120 schematics are the ones that can play minutes before the rankings close for the day.

WRG, it's time to get rid of the top 1% in arena. Just make it so the top 5% get 120 schematics, the top 10% gets 100 schematics, the top 15% gets 80 schematics, etc. Please and thank you.

  • Arena participation is down roughly 60% since I started playing. It is making things quite miserable. The reward tiers are due for restructuring.

    That's not my favorite idea, but I might come around if you have a good replacement. :)

    Why do they use an image of Worf swinging a bladed weapon for the arena? 🤔 He looks more appropriate for the gauntlet.

    "Ramming Speed" or "Good Day to Die" Worf would certainly feel more appropriate.

    Not in favor of this myself, it doesn't take much time to run the ten battles and you have to run 20 "ship" missions anyway, so I like the "two for one" points of the arena requirement. I'd actually like them to add 5 guantlet runs to the dailies as well.

    Rather than restructuring the arena awards (which they probably won't do) how about just flag anyone that gets to #1 at any time in the day, to get maximum schematics? Then it won't matter if you don't stay there until the end of the day.

    Adding the gauny to dailies would be HORRIBLE. The gauny is beyond frustrating. If I were “required” to participate in the gauny on a daily basis, that might just be the final straw that kills my participation in the game all together.

    +1 to most of this, right here. Work on eliminating the time zone bias, to level the playing field.

    1) I think adding the Gauntlet to dailies is a great idea *IF* they do not raises the max dailies required. In fact, they should lower the dailies required to 10, then add Gauntlet. Thus, there are 12 dailies completable, but you only need to do 10 of them.

    2) An idea that's been around awhile, for arena: instead of switching places, when your ship wins/looses, you instead simply move back one spot. So, if a rank 450 gets #1, the fomer #1 (and everyone behind them) simply move back one spot.

    EDIT: The more I think about it, the more I like your idea of #1s automatically getting 120 (admiral), for the day, as a potential solve to the arena problem. At first, I wasn't too enthusiastic, as it would mean quite a lot of players get the 120 schematics; but then, I thought, why is that a bad thing?

    I find this a very good idea.

    I don't think we have ever had confirmation, but your number 2 above is how it works right now. When I win to number 1, I only gradually fall back.

    No, you for sure switch places. 100%. You can even test this out, if you have more than one account or a friend willing to play leapfrog with you.

    If you're gradually falling back it probably means your arena setup is decent.
