When are we getting this place in Arena map rotation?

Pretty sure one of the devs said it would be too small.

ID: hbfr5ot

Surely they could put some BS around it

ID: hbfzixw

That would mean updating the actual map because they load in the whole BR map for arenas.

ID: hbg4jyf

Nah nah keep it small, it'll be like the apex version of rust

ID: hbgc9xs

That would be so fun honestly

ID: hbgjcmd

I don’t think anyone would care if it was small

ID: hbhauat

It's not just that it's small it's that both teams could immediately cross over the entire map with the jump pads. It'd be fun but quickly become frustrating and this sub would immediately complain about getting aped by flying sweats.

ID: hbg4d80

Th3n make it a tdm map with respawns..

ID: hbh35oa

Honestly a CoD type mode where you respawn and earn your skills through kill streaks would be a whole lot of fun in Apex.

ID: hbgj5j8

But why’d you type then like that lmao

ID: hbgq5bp

Fuck too small. I want small maps. I don’t want rounds to take so long and spend so much time poking or waiting out power positions. I just wanna fight and this would be absolutely lit. They don’t have to put it in the ranked rotation if they don’t think it’s competitively balanced or whatever, just leave it in casuals.

ID: hbgjio3

The other maps are too big

ID: hbh4fjw

definitely, all that space makes arena tedious instead of fun

ID: hbge21y

Now that there are two playlists they could do an Arenas speed event on the pub list, made of all “too small” maps. So like the Octane thing pictured, estates, and solar array or something along those lines. Be a good change up for a bit.

ID: hbgrh83

Only way I would complete an Arena's flash event

ID: hbgfn68

that's what she said

ID: hbfr3nd

So extend it

ID: hbfso23

Tell that to the devs.

They could put the three spots around that skull pit into an arena. Would be slightly larger than usual but still capable of solid 3v3 combat.

4 : Anonymous2021/09/03 12:08 ID: hbfqqmo

Couple more posts about this should do the trick.

ID: hbg92x2

Well, it worked for Skull Town ¯_(ツ)_/¯, though the devs have already said why it's not happening with this one.

ID: hbhft16

The game is planned very far in advance. They most likely had Genesis event/Skulltown Arenas map set in stone months before Arenas even came out.

ID: hbfznff

I'm in!

5 : Anonymous2021/09/03 12:55 ID: hbfvzke

They should add it but maybe not in ranked

ID: hbh4y0d

This would be a good fun ltm in arenas! With all the jumpbads it would be too fast for serious gameplay

6 : Anonymous2021/09/03 15:14 ID: hbgeuio

Who cares if it’s chaotic or unbalanced? Put it in rotation for a limited time like Skulltown was.

7 : Anonymous2021/09/03 15:33 ID: hbghlgp

This would be the funnest arena map ever

8 : Anonymous2021/09/03 12:15 ID: hbfrhsk

I think the people who ask for this haven't actually put 3 seconds of thought into how it would play. This much mobility put innately into an arenas map doesn't work at all, hugely benefits some legends over others, and leads to chaotic games.

It's fun in BR, not fitting for arenas.

ID: hbfzzya

I disagree. I feel like arenas lack the movement people are used to in BR. This map would bring fun fights instead of boring long-range scout fights.

ID: hbg2l3a

Current Arenas maps have quite a good variety of close to long range fights. There's a reason SMGs are so expensive.

Also, the whole point of arenas is that if you want lots of mobility, you have to pay for it. If you want a jump pad, you have to trade off other equipment for it.

9 : Anonymous2021/09/03 11:29 ID: hbfmxo5

Fr! I’ve been saying this, would be so fun

10 : Anonymous2021/09/03 12:11 ID: hbfr1nr

Word or skulltown

ID: hbfsx56

Skulltown was already an arena map and I’m sad they removed it cus that 2 weeks was when I played the most arena because of skulltown

ID: hbg0mjk

Personally I wasn’t big fan. Little bit too much verticality to it, like being able to get on the skeleton way up high was fun but jut added a bit too much to an arenas map IMO.

Then you also had all the buildings and rooms and whatnot. Just a bit too much going on.

ID: hbfukyd

See I just started playing arena so I didn't know I wish I was there for it

11 : Anonymous2021/09/03 13:21 ID: hbfz7k6

Hopefully never.

Areana maps should be mirror images of each other so no team has an advantage.

ID: hbgnv1t

I kinda hate the mirage map because it’s not symmetrical on the ship side. One side has a clear advantage.

ID: hbgxsiz

Fucking hate the ship side in general. It is the worst Arena experience when it comes to map specific experiences. It’s just two teams taking pot shots at each other until one person overpeeks and gets downed, and then you push. There is no easy way to get up on the other ship top, and not even possible to get an alternative angle. It slopes downward on one side, and on the other side if you try to play supply bin any smart team would jump on you.

Fuse is the only solution to this, but absolutely awful because so many Arena players refuse to push. I remember one round I cracked all 3 and were burning their HP with fuse ult and 4 arc stars and they were all huddled into the back side on low ground and my team just stayed up on the top despite me telling them all this.

ID: hbglkvf

This map would be much closer to a mirror image than the current kings canyon arenas map

This post proves how little gamers know about making a good game.

13 : Anonymous2021/09/03 14:50 ID: hbgbgrh

A revenants dream arena map.

14 : Anonymous2021/09/03 15:11 ID: hbgeege

I don't want that back until we get a thunder dome revisit

15 : Anonymous2021/09/03 15:53 ID: hbgki5p

I still jump off the map.

16 : Anonymous2021/09/03 22:34 ID: hbi3hnm

They don’t even edit the arena maps and it pisses me off. Like ughhh i hate these devs. So braindead. Imagine if we had a bunch of arena maps in a 20 minute rotation

17 : Anonymous2021/09/03 22:43 ID: hbi4l9a

Tomorrow. I promise

18 : Anonymous2021/09/03 22:51 ID: hbi5hgu

Honestly should have been a Top 3 spot for the mode in general if anyone who makes decisions had brains over there.

And they can always add shit around it...and if that means they have to also alter the Main BR map, then so be it! Honestly IMO the areas on both sides could use more cover in general.

EDIT: OK i had to add this...This POI is suppose to be Octanes Gauntlet and it looks like a back-woods version of the final track from the 80's movie Rad, which isn't a compliment.

Add some bleacher type structures around this area on both sides like it was something that was once watched by the public.

When respawn fix the servers

ID: hbfwx6v

so...never? 🙁

ID: hbfx08y

🙁 never. I'm sorry.

Imagine this place with tap strafing
