Gladiators!

 

We're excited to give you another sneak peek at the major changes coming to the Arena, with a special focus on the League – a brand-new PvP experience that will be available in mid-June! Be sure to check out the first and second parts of our Developer Diaries to stay on top of all the details. Now, let’s dive into the next chapter of our story!

 

Please note that the update is still in development, so all features may change before release.

 

As the new champions of Arinar embark on their quests for glory across the islands of the four factions, seasoned veterans prepare for the ultimate trial in the League's battlegrounds. Here, a gladiator's prowess is truly honored, with each triumph marking a step toward martial mastery and the opportunity to earn honorary titles. The question remains: Which of the brave warriors will rise to the top?

 

What Is the League?


The League is a new Arena for characters from levels 27 to 34. It features a dynamic rating system that changes based on your match outcomes – each win will increase your rating, while each loss will decrease it. The number of rating points you gain or lose depends on your character's rating compared to that of the top character on the opposing team. The stakes get even higher as you move up the ladder – the higher your current rating, the more you lose with each defeat and the less you earn with each victory.

 

In a change from the past, your Arena Season rating will no longer reset at the start of a new season; instead, it will be adjusted downward. This means that a higher rating from the previous season will grant you a higher starting position in the new season! This allows for a smoother progression back to your desired rating, avoiding the grind through lower ranks. It also ensures more balanced matches for newcomers, who will be less likely to face veterans early on.

 

League Ranks

 

Ranks are a classification system that reflects your rating – as your rating increases, you earn new ranks. There are four primary rank categories:

 

Bronze League

  • Bronze I 
  • Bronze II 
  • Bronze III

Silver League

  • Silver I
  • Silver II
  • Silver III

Gold League

  • Gold I
  • Gold II
  • Gold III

Platinum League

 

Staying in the Platinum League will be the real challenge! In this league, your rating will drop every day if you do not fight – however, participating in the League matches will keep your rating from dropping. In future updates, gladiators in the Platinum League will have the chance to achieve even greater glory as they will compete for the titles of Master, Grandmaster, and Undisputed!

 

There's more on the way! In addition to the standard battle and season rewards, the League will feature rank-up rewards! These rewards will be available once for each new rank you reach during a single Arena Season.

 

Matchmaking System

 

Your League gladiator rating also shapes matchmaking! The system will search for opponents with ratings similar to yours – and as you play, the search range will expand, pitting you against both tougher and less experienced players. However, defeating weaker opponents will earn you fewer rating points, and losing to stronger opponents will result in smaller rating losses. The search range has its limits to protect new players from facing veteran gladiators right away.

 

The League promises to make Arena battles even more exciting – but stay tuned for more changes on the horizon for our gladiators this summer! Update 12.4 is set to bring a major overhaul to the Arena and Arena Season menus, which will be further detailed in the upcoming update announcement!

 

See you in the Arena!

Would be cool if this was cross server. I have a feeling once you reach high rank you either wont get any matches or it will be always against the same party just because there isn't enough people. I hope I'm wrong tho.

Devs can only collect the characters from the Platinum League and create a client like a test server.. The matches are live stream on YouTube or Twitch.. it's a dream story :penguin:

Could the timer before fight starts be increased in ranked? 10seconds isn't enough to use all buffs and if the wait times are long at higher ranks its annoying to pre buff.

The pve player will have better access to the arena through the new daily quest.
