    Hey Pirates,

    As those of you who read our announcement last week are aware, we are making some slight changes to the Battle Arena today. These alterations will be effective for Sunday's Battle Arena.

    Player Anonymity

    Players will still choose a nickname if they so desire when they register for the Arena. During the duration of the event, everyone on the list will appear with the same generic name "Pirate" so you don't know who you're attacking. Targets can still be saved like in the past, but the search function will no longer be a part of the Arena. At the end of the event, the nicknames (or actual names) of the winners will be published. The list of targets will be randomized for everyone.

    Stamina Slider "Kill Shot"

    You can set the Stamina Slider anywhere from One to Ten, but if the Pirate you are attacking is above 20% of their maximum Health, then the maximum number of attacks you can do at once is Three (even if the Slider is set to 10).

    Once the targeted Pirate is under 20% of their maximum Health, then the Four to Ten Stamina attacks become available.

    Good job to go slow with the changes but I really think the idea of trying to make this thing last 3 days needs to be seriously reconsidered after the experience with the Raid Boss which I felt took over the game.

    Yes, I didn't like the idea of being allowed to rejoin after dying ... the "plastic pirates" would have had a field day paying their way to the top

    On KP2 it lasts 3 days almost every time. There is no "trying" to make it last 3 days, it's a regular occurrence.

    I'd like to see it last just a day or maybe even just 6-12 hours at least in the FB format.

    Well on FB PC it only lasts usually on average about six hours and that's plenty IMO.

    Agreed. That part never really appealed to me.

    Yeah tried the new arena. Suck ass yo. I was doing well, but I'm bored as hell besides the fact you can't accurately scroll down your list of pirates or your saved list... Unless this changes I'm never playing an arena again. I mean seriously what the hell is the point of having to create a name so I can stare at a list of pirate pirate pirate with no way to differentiate which one I just clicked on and which I didn't as I scrolled down the list. Quit chasing the money and try just making an enjoyable game... Or better yet why don't you fix the real problems like removing cheaters instead of trying to fix something that's not fking broken?

    It is not supposed to be a walk in the park o_O, I think the game in enjoyable, and it is a business, and if weren't for those that spend , there would be no game, but I agree with cheaters getting removed " permanently".
