The issue for me, and I suspect others is that Ranked is still going on. Not why they didn't wait for the season to finish before introducing Arms race, but the T10 pool is divided right now. I'll probably give it a go tonight though.

New Game Modes in PVP tend to attract special conversations.

There are quite a few players that complained about being out playing Tier X's competitively.  Arms Race might be a way to play them in a fun way for a change.  Also, some of us have Tier X's that they are not used to.  Outside of PvE, Arms Race is a "safe" way to gain some experience in them.

True, certain types of people should be showing up soon.

I like it because since it doesn't affect win rate or other stats, you can be extra aggressive, or try out questionable legendary mods.  Also seems good for grinding modules. I just got the Iowa last week and am now playing that exclusively in arms race until I get it fully upgraded.

That must mean that the queue times are long.

I was playing Izumo earlier today in this mode and it took 3 minutes, the match was not even full.

Granted, it was very early...

I just unlocked my first T9 ship (the Fletcher), so I'll probably grind some of the upgrades in arms race (if queue times aren't too bad).

I'd gladly grind out lines in arms race, but I hear that the xp gains are less:Smile_sceptic:

Nope. It's essentially a random battle. Same xp/credits as randoms. DDs might get less since the buff caps don't award cap xp (not sure if final cap does).

If you get at least a couple of the buffs, the XP gain is comparable to Random. Finished up my Z52's stage 1 there. Only a very detectable ship like Izumo without both concealment skill and module will be spotted while getting within the required 12km range.

Only gamble is hoping your DDs are competent. Atm it seems whichever team has the better DDs is guaranteed an easier time. Had defeats earlier from our DDs dying early.

Humpf. Here I was thinking that the OP must want to play his T8s in peace, hoping that Arms Race would drain away the top tier ships.

I had that hope too. Yesterday, I logged on with Cleveland hoping that I would'nt be bottom tiered, as usual, against a crapload of tier 10s because of the Arms race. It didn't happen, I was bottom tiered in every battle. :Smile_sad:

Interesting. I was assuming that it was working to shift the population. Last night, I played 8 games in my Gallant, and I was fighting T8s in all but one of those battles. Three of those, I was the only T6. It was getting lame, particularly as I was in queue for only 10-15 seconds so it wasn’t like a match had to happen. Having said that, I was in the groove and kicked a bunch of T8 BBs in the face; finished top three in each battle (and first a few times).

Arms Race rules...the funnest mode ever IMO but lacking rewards for events going on presently so most are sticking to random still to get credit for achievements in Hall of Fame.

It will suck if they cancel AR due to lack of participation due only to the fact people are trying to get extra containers from Brit event & AR doesn't give as many points.

Sounds like you got EXACTLY what you wanted.  You hoped to be bottom tier against tier 10's and you got it.  :Smile_teethhappy:

Arms Race was really fun on the Public Test Server. Giving any ship a permanent Repair Party. Or increasing the ROF on the Harugamo or Worcester more than it already is. Good times!

I'm grinding my Benson as fast as I can. See you soon.

LOL! I mis-spelled "would" for "would'nt". I need to read over my posts more carefully.  :Smile_facepalm:

I fixed it. Thanks for pointing it out. :Smile_honoring:
