    Arena Questions

    Post by DoughGuy on Thu Nov 01, 2012 1:56 am

    So I finally tried out the arena today. And Im really disappointed in it.
    First up I wanted to see how team matches are. So I go in, wait 5 minutes, get summoned to one which gets cancelled as there arent enough people, wait another 5 min and then quit.
    Next up deathmatch cause that sounds fun. Nope, 10 minutes and nothing. Not a single summon.
    So now duels, the thing I've been dreading. but what else do I have? So takes 5 minutes to get the first one, who BS me once, I BS them back but then they get a lucky hit with HCSM when I get a second BS and kill me. They spend the next 2 minutes running away. Spend 5 minutes waiting for the next ,match. A WoG spammer (mustve had at least 21 WoGs) who I manage to BS once, but then manages to heal (I didnt know that area existed!) and BS me when I whiff an attack.

    So here I am asking, were these wait times normal? Does it actually take 5-10+ minutes to get a fight? SL 99 PS3

    wait times are normal, and the turtling once they go up 1 kill is just as normal. So you basically wait 5 mins to have your opponent turtle for 3 mins. people care way to much about their streak, people on this forum even say majority of their matches end in draws because neither player wants to lose their streak so they just turtle each other.

    the best thing is to do team/Death match arenas with 3 other people so you all coordinate where to stand and face each other, i made a PSN chat room for it, add me on PSN and ill invite you to chat. (i think i did add you though because we are friends already i believe)

    As I keep saying Dough the arena is lame. You either wait ages.... or face some of the scummiest Dark Souls players you have ever seen. In many ways it even worse than the old Forest for pvp....

    All I'm saying: You better get the first kill, because there are those runners and healers.

    facing cheap players isn't that bad, i would rather face a cheap player that kills me 6x with cheap tatics, then kill me once with a cheap tatic and run the rest of the match, if he kept killing me at least i could work on countering what ever he is doing. it is the turtling that turned me off almost instantly.

    i can't even say how many matches i got the first kill had about 30-40% life left and STILL engaged to fight only to lose, so now it is 1-1 and they then turtle to get a draw.

    i only try for team/death match when there are other members on and wanting to do arena, it goes fairly quick then, still like a 5 min wait though, but the matches are fun and 6 mins long, and when its all forum members you know its a good time.

    So even with randoms deathmatch is really fun. You dont care about getting BSed and at the end everyone gathered round to bow to each other.

    Your best bet with the arena is going to somewhere like the wiki chat (chatango) and asking around if anyone wants to meet you there, plus its more fun when you can have a laugh about the fight afterwards with someone you are talking to - rather than a random sending you some rage mail lol

    Rosie happy
