Fix this! I lost 27 points in ranking to a person I won against in an earlier match and I got ONE TOTAL POINT!

How exactly is this even remotely fair? I being a 35th level facing a 50 and get ONE POINT and then LOSE 27 THE NEXT MATCH to the same person.

Wow what color is the sky over there?

Seriously someone explain the fair factor in this.

It discourges players from soley using low level characters in the arena. Alot of people do this bc they think there low lv warlord will have to face nothing but other low levels and there for be alot easier when climbing up in rank.

NO! Never "expected" this and this wasn't the case before anyway. I don't mind facing level 50's as a 35, but to lose that much in points/rank is just not fair, and on the other side of the coin to only gain one point?

Where is the parity?

The arena is suppose to be for all levels. It is ridiculous to penalize a player just because they have a high ranking and are forced to face players much higher. My initiate is facing higher level adepts now and my adept is facing magus and masters. If I lose even one match, which happens no matter how good the player is, then I need to win a dozen more just to make up for that loss.

My level 22 myth just went second to a 46 storm. I managed to win but it was a close thing. I got hit with stormzillas and tritons and everything else you can think of. What did I win for all this? ONE POINT. Seriously this is really getting ridiculous now.

I've noticed the change in arena points awarded as well. Was this is the upgrade FAQ and I missed it?

A rumor was going around that the points awarded are reduced for each stun cast in the combat. While that might be a clever solution to stun teams (ugh! won't rant here about them!) I found the explanation to be unlikely.

An official word on what has happened to the point system would be welcome. TY!
