    Hey all,

    Starting mid-to-late next week (the October 23 Mob Wars: La Cosa Nostra Arena will most likely be affected by this), we'll be making some changes to the Battle Arena. This first round of changes will be rather small with some larger ones to follow. Right now I'll just be covering the changes for next week and we'll discuss further alterations in-depth closer to release so we can keep the conversation focused on this stage.

    Stage One Changes:

    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 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:

    The Stamina Slider will remain as is until a player is under 25% of their max Health. At that point, players attacking them will be able to use a 1 to 10 Stamina Slider. In summation, 100 - 25% Health on your target is a 1 to 3 Slider when you are attacking. 25% and under on your target is a 1 to 10 Slider when you are attacking.

    Changes exclusive to Zombie Slayer: The Fortitude Bar will be removed during this round of changes.

    TL;DR: All players are now anonymous during the Arena and there is no more search function, although targets can still be saved. Stamina Slider can now be ratcheted up to 10 when your target is under 25% of their max Health. The Fortitude Bar will be removed from Zombie Slayer.

    Future Changes: Adding a scoring system and making that the way to determine a winner and lowering the level barrier to entry for Arenas on all platforms

    Anonymity. Sounds good to me. At least now when I see some one snipe a kill I was working on (or vice versa), I/they won't know who to be mad at. :)

    The Battle Arena is a popular feature that many players have suggested that we take a look at in order to make changes and refresh it. Our hope is that with these changes and the upcoming ones I mentioned the participation numbers will go up and this feature will get a bit of its spark back.

    Well I am going to withhold comment on aspect but the removal of search function and ability to identify players. Lets see how it works the first few times

    Not to be negative, but what good is a saved list if everyone is anonymous? You have to check a player's stats every time you go back to the list to be sure you're attacking the one you're looking for? :confused:

    can be both good and bad with the search and anonymity. The team tag on 1 player won`t work. Only upside i can see at this point! Can you still attack a player that "snipes" your kill?

    it will help it be more like the original concept, many join and one wins,and no one will be able to win with help or an agreement up front,we will win or lose on our own merits :)
