oops!  Meant Arms Race.

 

Ah, well it is a new battle mode that is in testing. It is also only T9 & T10 at this time. As I understand it, only a small fraction of the player base comes to the forum, so the majority of the player base probably hasn't stumbled onto it yet.

It is because it is not offering many if any rewards that count towards peoples missions etc....not enough goodies for reward.

So [edited]sick of having tier 10 shoved down my throat across CB, ranked, this, lengendary mods... they need to spread this out. 

No interest in their [edited] game modes in tier 9-10. Just my opinion.

my question is where are all these 43% TIER TEN ship players coming from...???  I aint great.... even my in game account is OK but 90% of my team, and the red team consists of 43% players... some with 5K battles..... 

not a big deal when it does not really matter as much cause AR does not have a bearing on WR, so its not really a rant... but wth man,... how is ANYONE THAT BAD at 2, 3 4K battles and playing tier ten ships???
Maybe its me but I would not want to be that bad at a team game... and cause more team losses than wins...

 

and its funny how one game can be five on five and the very next game its 12 on 12, then 4 on four... 8 on 8 10 on 10 and back to 5....

The problem is players can't earn their legendary mods in this game mode. I want to see this mode take off, mostly because it would help tier 8 matchmaking.

Probably because the mode does not count towards the legendary upgrades, which is the current tier ten hook. Had they been thinking, they would have made it tier 8 and 9.

There is a chance that they didn't want too many players playing it.  Sort of the next level after beta testing.  Guessing they would want players more "serious" (Tier 10 owners) than PTS, but not the entire group of Legendary Mod grinders.  It was presented as a test when it was first released and it is kind of a fun way to build T10 skills.

They might have gotten T10 ships for the Anniversary SC - that was me last year.  I ground to the Minotaur and Des Moines, played my one battle in each and got insta-deleted.  In my case, I parked them in my port for months and only took them out in PvE.  I would occasionally try a Random battle, but I was lost in the meta and completely useless.  In their case, they probably kept playing them.  Now, I am not especially good, but I can contribute and am getting better.  Arms Race is a good way for me to practice driving my T10's.

Well, it is in live testing, so I'm sure more will be added to it over time. I expect achievements won't be added until they can see what the average game is like.

I guess I'm one of the potatoes. I ground Pensacola to Des Moines, mostly in PvP, for the US cruiser split. I have a crap survival rate in PvP as I'm way too aggressive.

I think a lot of people like it but they aren't offering the rewards or the tier ten legendary upgrades in it, so why play it? A poor test if you ask me. I like the mode though.

It would be popular as a means to the legendary mod grind, rather than doing it in other mods.

No legendary module grinds, no campaign grinds, and most importantly I can't work my way towards those shiny emblems.

You can complete RN Missions in Arms Race.

Thank you, but I know I need work. I just haven't felt up to PvP lately.

Because it sucks and no one wants to play "I have the golden gun" halo mode.
