    Mitch, will defense stance timer reset upon each death?

    So, how would that basically work?
    A. Say you were killed in defense mode=time left over?
    B. Your killed instantly after def mode time runs out, and want to pay fp's to join back in=Defense Recharge Time2400 (40 mins) seconds have to wait for def stance again? What would be point in that, if got spotted immediately upon rehealing?

    I will reserve judgment until the arena happens and I get a "tactile" feel for it. I'm a little confused on how it will play out, but am sure will figure it out quickly once things get rolling.

    PS. If it is worse than before, I will pull out my FA-5000 as pictured in my profile pic and shoot you with it. (Clarification, It is a "non standard issue" gun we had sent to us while overseas that we deemed the "FA-5000". (FA = Foam Ammunition. It is a Nerf gun).

    i'm not sure that i like all of these changes, either. i guess i'm not set up to do very well in the arenas because it's hard for me to get kills. but i want to give it a shot first and see what it's like firsthand before spouting off about something that may actually work out okay. i'm not one of the "hit and hiders", and i do as many attacks as i can before i get taken out or run out of stamina, whichever comes first. hopefully, attack numbers will be taken into consideration along with kill numbers.

    If you are killed in Defensive Mode with time left, then it will run out while you are dead and begin recharging.

    The Defensive stance timer will still work while you are dead, so if you wait for that to be up you can re-enable it once you join back in. If you want to instantly re-join without waiting for Defensive stance to come back, then you run the risk of being killed.

    This is how it currently stands, we are open to any changes once feedback comes in. :)

    I sugest to you instead of keeping the window with Arena open to put a button just like for activating defense mode for reveiving with a countdown (1hour) near the option instant healing usings Fps, will be much better and elegant then keeping window open in Arena

    I do not want to be automatically revived, and I am at a loss how to avoid that, do I have to "not" click on the words "Battle Arena" ,next to Guild wars for how ever long the arena is expected to go on, to see if it is over or how many are left,etc, so I don't revive,I am not clear on this.

    I've convinced the developers to investigate a toggle for revives, we'll likely have that in for the Battle Arena.

    I agree with Black Ice, if you are going to ruin the best part of this game at least give us a way to honourably retire and not become inactive punching bags

    Agreed Ben, they asked for it, wish granted.
  19. I have read as many messages as I can and overall, I think that I will like this new B.A. As most of my friends in the game know, I don't personally like battling one on one in the game. The arena is the one place where I can remain anonymous and attack everyone that I see fit. The arena doesn't directly reflect my game persona. I love the fact that I can attack more people now, or at least have the opportunity to do so. Consider me signed up for the next one and hopefully I won't be found by some 10,000+ level monster that is looking to make me into a shish kabob. :)

    Maybe you could throw in random stamina boost drops when attacking in the arena like the energy drops when attacking the raid boss? You can never have too much stamina in the arena....
