SWTOR - 4v4 Arena
Posted 03 October 2013 - 10:53 AM
There is also a Solo Queue option for Arena which gives you a Solo Rating. You get paired up with 3 other players. The matchmaking system works really well, if no tanks or healers are on both sides will pop as 4 DPS, or with tank/healer variations but it will always be evenly matched. As you get higher in rating you will get paired against other players of similar ratings.
SWTOR sucked it up for a while, really, was on the verge of quitting many times myself but I stuck it out because of the friends I had who played the game. It's had it's ups and downs but it's finally on par and imo better than any MMO currently available. SWTOR currently is the most fun I've had since first experiencing Arena back in TBC.
The SWTOR spin on Arena is really amazing as well, it's a best of 3 rounds. Ever fight a shitty 2200 beastcleave team that barely survived and got a lucky kill on your teammate losing 25 rating? Beat them 10 times in a row after that to gain only 10 rating of that 25? Well in this game if you lose a game to a single mistake against a team you are clearly superior to then you can mop the floor with them the next two rounds and gain rating.
There is a 5 minute timelimit on each round, though games hardly go to that. What happens when the timelimit hits is acid begins to flood the room and once it reaches you then you begin taking a hard hitting dot, and heals have zero effects. The team that gets the first kill in the acid wins the round. This is actually really amazing as there is absolutely ZERO turtle comps in SWTOR. Every game I've played is "Tank, 2 DPS, 1 Healer". So we have zero turtle comps, zero triple DPS 1 healer comps that blow up a teammate in 2 seconds like 4 DPS in 5's.
I stuck it out with SWTOR because I liked that it was an MMO with lightsabers and guns, I was tired of dungeouns, dragons, elves, dwarves, and that LOTR shit. I wanted spaceships, lasers, and explosions. Now it has a BETTER Arena system than WoW currently. You aren't tied to a "team", you just have a personal rating and there will be leaderboards in the next update which hails the beginning of Season 1, and massive balance changes across the board to make Arena fun for every person not just the guys who rolled FOTM.
Check it out, I think if you're tired of WoW, but don't want to give up Arena, do it in SWTOR.

Are bounty hunters fun to play still? The arena system does sound fun.

what about gear?
Gear is really easy to get, and there is a bolster to put you on par with everyone while you are in the gearing process.

Just when you think no one can top the casualness of league.

Powertechs r are great atm, merc dps ok also.
If you pay subscription everything is free, but you still cant play arenas as f2p player, so you are kind of forced to pay it.
I like swtor arenas also, class balance is ok cept few advanced classes, but its nothing big. There is no facerolling like in some setups in wow. And on top of that they will work on some class balance in patch 2.5 when season 1 starts.

If you're really bored of WoW ( which most of you should be like 3 years back ), then give SWTOR arena a try, it's fucking awesome.

If the barrier of entry was low and didn't require much grind, I'd be interested in checking it out.
