    Arena wait times

    Post by wolfboy on Thu Oct 25, 2012 12:20 am

    Has anyone else had a lot of difficulty getting summoned for arena fights?

    I've been playing in the sl200+ bracket, Xbox... I've been able to get into a few duels and one deathmatch... A lot of "waiting for competitors to join"...

    Is there more action in the other brackets?

    the most popular bracket will be 51-100, and 100-200 because alot already have SL120s

    The wait was long even on the pc. The best is to keep it to the lower levels. What i ahve done is once i was invaded I would message the invader and ask for a duel in the arena.. sometimes even have team duels. cuts the wait time down.

    I played for a good long while in SL120 range on ps3, and found that in general the duels load up a lot faster. Which I guess logically should be expected anyway just because you only need one competitor for those. I did manage a few team battles, but mostly ended up standing in my cage for 20 minutes across for one other person throwing voice stones back and forth and eventually either just leaving or having the other person leave.

    I played 2 deathmatches today, man it's fun as hell, all those backstabs LOL, I just hope as time passes more ppl will get the DLC and the waiting becomes shorter

    Made it there today with a sl56 and poopoo on matches. Tried team and death match both sides,, long wait and only got 3 spots filled one time, then a guy left 10min later, I left. Rest of the time, it would take forever, then in, same guy twice, then another guy twice. ( so I was connecting to a couple people easily)
    Figured, MAYBE it was spotty verizonDSL so I stepped out to the bonfire, laid a RSS and invaded within a minute, after I laid a WSS several times, summoned just as quick. So it wasn't a connection issue.
    Seems to me it's broken.

    (already have a sl107 in there and had some better luck, but the wait times are terrible.)

    I found the couple duels I did, wait times are shorter. Believe you are right about it being "just 2" that need to be matched up. But you can't tell me, the software can't match up 4 people for team matches, shouldn't be that hard, unless there's no pool of players to pull from. ( and I find that hard to believe )
    Still think it's broken, need fixin'
