Almost 600 points a day required to earn all the rewards, is this the grindiest flash event yet?

Ranked arena is grindy af

ID: hbyue3i

Solo’d to plat and had to stop. Not fun without a squad.

ID: hbz0sdu

I'm trying hard to get to diamond and yeah, it's a hell of a grind. I'm in plat 3 and honestly it sometimes feels like working a second job.

ID: hbz11e5

Just solo’d to plat as well and Jesus Christ is it a grind to get there if you don’t have a squad. I’m legit scared to play any matches now because I don’t wanna fall back to gold lmao

Please don’t tell me it’s arena only challenges.

ID: hbyfkwm

It's arena only challenge like all the previous ones, they are desperately trying to get people to play arena so I guess arena is failing.

ID: hbyfyjv

There were some BR challenges in a s9 flash event. i don’t understand why can’t they just do the same.

ID: hbz7hbo

I thought arenas was fun at first, but feeling the need to play it from flash events and daily and weekly challenges just made it feel old fast.

ID: hbyiu4f

I mean I still haven't touched arenas once this season, I've skipped multiple arenas flash events, if that's a common thing then arenas is probably failing in terms of usage

ID: hbz7wkx

I always reroll my dailies because I dont play arena AT ALL.

ID: hbz2i37

Probably a big difference between "failing" and "not as popular as the mode the entire game was built around for 2+ years." Arenas might not ever be as big as BR (it's not my preferred mode, for sure) but lots of people play it.

ID: hbz4l2k

It is an “arenas flash event” after all

ID: hbyww34

I love me some arenas

ID: hbyyjof

I had an arenas match with a first time pathy as the enemy, all his teammates dc'd. I feel so bad for beg who get in these lobbies because of the sbmm.

I really dgaf the skins, I just need the packs.

ID: hbyh1om

I'm level 500 so feel the same, 3000 points still pretty grindy and is usually the top reward in past reward tracks

ID: hbzb6wr

Yea I feel for lvl 500/high level players chasing that heirloom/every pack possible and after all this time playing are now forced to play Arenas to get the extra packs with these type of events.

5 : Anonymous2021/09/07 18:41 ID: hbyog2l

These event things used to be 5000 pts. They then decreased them to 3000. And now back up to 4000. At least it's not 5k!

ID: hbypjm5

I thought the 5000 point ones were 2 week events, were there 5000 point 1 week ones before?

ID: hbyqdim

It varies. Sometimes it's 2 weeks sometimes it's 1 week.

ID: hbypzdl

Hmm, honestly I can't remember. You might be correct. If that's the case then 5000 for 2 weeks is even better than 3000 per week! They're just making it more grindy to keep players on. Dev team wants us to break up with our backlog!

ID: hbz4hvc

The 5000 point events lasted 2 weeks, so it was 2500 points per week. 3000 points per week was already an increase. Now it's 4000 per week.

ID: hbz03bi

I thought it depended on the rewards. The 5k ones usually have a legend skin and a weapon skin. The 3k ones are just Apex packs and battle pass points.

ID: hbyoqkv

Thanks I can only remember the 3000 ones, but fair enough at least it's not 5000!

I’ll definitely help my youngest brother get the caustic skin as he mains him

ID: hbyrg5d

Awesome, that’s a really cool idea. Your bro will be super happy with the caustic skin when you guys earn it together

ID: hbyrkqj

I always help my brothers get stuff in games

7 : Anonymous2021/09/07 18:35 ID: hbynji2

It's even possible to do it even less than about 3 or 4 days just need to grind a little

8 : Anonymous2021/09/07 18:51 ID: hbypy8f

that’s a cool ass volt skin, i don’t care how long it takes to get that thing

ID: hbzcv6h

I really like it, but I’m also going for the BP volt skin, so it’s kind of a bummer

ID: hbyrc1d

Agreed. I’ll be grinding it out.

Also, I just really like doing challenges. Kinda doesn’t matter what the reward is lol

9 : Anonymous2021/09/07 19:06 ID: hbys1f4

I've literally not touched Arena, what does 300 points equate to?

ID: hbysk66

The current event has 100 and 200 point challenges. The base challenges are play 2 matches (100), get 10 knockdowns (200), win 1 match (100), deal 2000 damage (200), win two matches in a row (200).

ID: hbyu5z3

Gotcha, thanks. I like that Volt skin so it might bring me to try it finally.

They can add legendary rewards to arena events and i still wouldn’t play it

I love areans ngl. Its more fun than ranked but not as fun as pubs.

ID: hbyxln6

Coming from Overwatch I love arenas. I am so much better at arenas compared to battle royale because the positioning reminds me of Overwatch 3v3. Also less lag and no third parties. Not sure why everyone despises it so much, must be the matchmaking which is not a problem for me since I play with friends

ID: hbzbtdh

Tbh, I never liked BRs, but Apex gameplay feels really great I just couldn't get fully into the game because I really don't like BRs. Arenas basically made the game go from a B- to a A+ for me.

12 : Anonymous2021/09/07 19:29 ID: hbyvhcm

I really don’t care about the skins but three packs are three packs.

13 : Anonymous2021/09/07 20:28 ID: hbz41q8

Just got 1000 points in 45 minutes so really not a big deal I don't think.

14 : Anonymous2021/09/07 23:00 ID: hbzowgk

Bruh only two apex packs? I’d want four if they wanna pull this bs

15 : Anonymous2021/09/07 22:01 ID: hbzh072

I can't f*ckin stand that they're always arena challenges now. I hate arenas. However, the flash event from a week or so ago I reluctantly did cause I thought "well, couple easy packs...maybe I'll finally get some shards".

Got some shards.

16 : Anonymous2021/09/07 19:14 ID: hbyt5r0

How is that grindy? It takes like 2-3 games do the daily challenges for the event.

17 : Anonymous2021/09/07 19:58 ID: hbyzrj1

i got 1200 ponts just in 1-1 and a half hour, it isnt that hard to acieve, at least as ive experienced.

18 : Anonymous2021/09/07 18:45 ID: hbyp2in

Noooooooo not arena's again! I fucking hate always loading in with 1 teammate missing and the other teammate who then decides to rush headlong into the frey while calling me shit at the game. I think I'll give this one a swerve

ID: hbz04yi

as much as I hate backfill as a solution to games, arenas needs backfill between rounds for leavers/dc's/shitty match making to make it consistently playable.

19 : Anonymous2021/09/07 19:28 ID: hbyvary

2 free apex packs? Count me in for hours of solo queue arena grinding pain

No heirloom gang

20 : Anonymous2021/09/07 19:49 ID: hbyyfop

Another event I won't be participating in!!!

21 : Anonymous2021/09/07 20:02 ID: hbz08wu

My kid liked arena mode so I’ll just let him play a bit. Atleast upto the first pack anyway.

22 : Anonymous2021/09/07 20:08 ID: hbz169w

But why
