Annihilator Arena (season 3)

Get Ready! Arena begins Wednesday, January 5, 2010 and ends on January 26, 2010! Signup started December 29.

Changes During Arena
The day before this Arena started, CA announced they were changing the ability of the Cleric in Guild Battles to try to balance battles and encourage other strategies in Arena. Clerics now only cast Heal on non-stunned team-members.

During the second week of Arena 3, CA announced that no class abilities would activate when your health was below 200 health. The next day, citing user feedback, they rolled back this change and currently class abilities only deactivate when you are stunned (0 health).

Official Rules

Arena Season III will be done in a Guild Battle format. However, unlike guild battles, you will be placed on a randomized team depending on your rank. Two teams will battle against each other in a 1 hour battle. You will be placed randomly in one of the four towers created. Each team will consist of a maximum of forty (40) members, with ten (10) members in each of the four gates. If there are less than 40 members on a team, the team shall be distributed evenly amongst each gate (e.g. 36 team members will result in 9 members in each gate). Each team shall be comprised of individuals within the same Arena Ranks as you. You will also be matched against an opposing team of similar strength.

Your Class for an Arena Battle is determined by the one selected within the Character Class page at the beginning of the Arena Battle. You CANNOT change your Class for the current battle once it has started. However, you can change your Class and have it take effect on the next Arena Battle. Also remember to set your Class Ability from the Character Class page.

RULES

- Each action in the Arena Battle will require the use of Arena Tokens
- You will be provided a full charge of Arena Tokens at the beginning of each Arena Battle
- You will recharge an Arena Token every 5 minutes
- An Arena Battle will start every two hours on the hour and you will be placed onto a team with other participants based on your Arena Rank
- Win battles within an Arena Battle to earn Arena Points
- The battle portion of an Arena Battle lasts 1 hour or until all players on one side are below 200 health
- If either team is unable to eliminate all other players on the opposing team, the winning team is the one with the higher percentage of members still above 200 health
- The Arena Battle must be over in order for you to collect your reward whether that means all members of the opposing team have been eliminated or the time limit has expired
- You will have up until five (5) minutes prior to the start of the next battle to collect your reward
- You must collect your reward during the collection period to be awarded your Arena Points
- If you do NOT collect your reward within the collection period, your Arena Points for that particular battle will be forfeited
- Members of the winning team collect a 25% bonus to their Arena Point total for that battle (e.g. win 1000 Arena Points within an Arena Battle; reward is 1250 Arena Points)
- Members of the losing team receive a 25% detriment to their Arena Point total for that battle (e.g. win 1000 Arena Points within an Arena Battle; reward is 750 Arena Points)
- If the winning team defeats the opposing team within 30 minutes of the start of the Arena Battle, the winning team will receive an additional 10% bonus to their collection of Arena Points (e.g. win 1000 Arena Points within an Arena Battle; reward is 1350 Arena Points)
