Is there any games like WoW Arena but not as shitty?

Games like Bloodline Champions but actually active.

forge was decent at best, and BLC was soooo much fun but it got to the point where you were qing into the same ppl all day like you said it was wasn't active. Unfortunately there isnt any game like arena that i've found so AT cata / WOTLK it is for me :)

Yeah, I was a founder on forge but the graphics really made it hard for me, everything seemed to blend together. Plus the game is really dead and no one plays it.

I really wish that BLC was still active, such an amazing game but never enough players and really shitty servers.

This thing looks interesting, but its being made by some obscure russian company so...

-WoWlike Arena
-No ability bloat
-more balanced
-actual tournaments

Who are these idiots that thought it was bad?

The only reason it bombed was Funcom fucking it in the ass.

BLC is pretty cool
The gameplay is just not for me with the camera and whatnot. I much prefer the WoW arena style. BLC has similar growth issues as WoW arena in the sense that it was never really "growing". . . one reason being because it's not a very good spectator game whatsoever unless the player knows the ins and outs well, like WoW

There aren't really many games like WoW arena unfortunately, which sucks because WoW arena is like a genre of gaming within itself, and it's fun. If you aren't having fun on retail, your best bet is probably arena tournament or just look for a different kind of game altogether. Rng aside, regardless of any changes from retail or not (if there are any besides gear), AT wow is actually a good game imo, and a lot of the top players (marm, mehh, jpeg/imbad) have said it's a good game as well. Wotlk AT that is. . . cata still feels cancerous. I'm sure most of us would salivate over the idea of a Wow arena game, without all the mmo and pve balance stuff with it. A game where you could just jump in and play, with a mix of wotlk speed and mechanics--with maybe better balancing and far less rng.


I don't see this happening though.

Honestly, it would have the same problem like BLC, not enough people. The 'only PvP' crowd is just really small. Even i was a hc raider with wirld first 14-25th kills during swp-icc, and PvPd next to it. I enjoy farming items, doing raids, flex is really good fun, playing random bgs etc.

If there would be only Arena, and nothing else, WoW would have died years ago, or stay on a level like BLC's community (dont mistaken me, BLC is an awsome game, played a lot of it, but only PvP is really...really boring after a while)

But then how does this explain League of Legends' popularity. Its basically a semi-pure PvP game. No raiding, no questing, no "gearing up" but its still has an insane amount of players. Dota has an insane amount of players and it is almost purely pvp with an insane skill cap, so the skill argument doesn't really work.

If Bloodline Champions was made by a competent US company that didn't need Failcom it would still be being played heavily. BLC had over 300k players at one point, and that was with them being a Euro company backed by Funcom. Pretty impressive.

If someone made a game like Forge, but with better art direction/monetization/game engine it would be massively successful.

You have a point there, i didn't think of MOBAs. I honestly do not know why they popular, people consantly whining and bitching about the community, about op or not heroes, etc

i think the best game will be
melee----> huge damage, no cc just 1 stun
casters----> low damage, cc and team buffs
healers------> heal

huge hp pool but low healing that is gonna punish every mistake

That would be "balanced"but ultra boring. All it will be about at higher rate is RNG crits nothing else.

melee ---> constant pressure no high crits, 1 stun
casters --> reward CASTING again, remove instants, big crits -> cc
healers ---> heal, team buffs, 1 cc.

game fixed.
