So I was out of town when Arms Race was introduced. I have tried off and on to give it a go but set in que for over 6 minutes with average of 5 ships showing in range. Is this the normal?

Yes, it is new and only T9+, so the queue waits can be long off peak hours.

Nobody plays it because the rewards are quite a bit lower than just playing randoms.

It is in live testing right now. I'm sure more rewards will be added.

I don't like the way that this is worded.  I'm not aware that the credits and XP earning in AR is lower.  OTOH, the known problem with AR is that it doesn't recognize achievements, nor does it count towards some missions.  And it is this part that people do not like.  If you're going to play a tier 10 ship, people want their time in a tier 10 battle to count towards their Halsey missions or the Legendary Upgrade grind.

You're not missing much. Just a new gimmicky mode that nobody wants to play

Comrade, check your internet settings.  It is not the developer's fault you are having issues.  Please update your drivers are reinstall Windows XP.

Nobody plays it because it is only T9/10.

It is full of players.  Every game mode is.

So right now you can't grind the various missions and goals in Arms Race while they are testing it out.  So the best time to play is prime time 5pm - 10pm ish.

Once its out of testing and they allow you to grind Legendary Upgrades and enable other rewards, this mode will be flooded.  It's *MUCH* more fun than Tier 9/10 randoms.  Much more fun.

It's good for grinding modules, and since it doesn't affect WR or stats it's fun to derp around if you want a low stress game... More fun than coop and less credit loss if you have a bad game. 

But yeah outside of 7-10pm EST it's pretty dead.

It's a fun game mode, but not being able to earn achievements, or have it count for legendary upgrade grind, pushes me away from it.

Thanks everyone. I like trying all the game modes of W.O.W. at least once. I really enjoy playing. Huge WW2 interest, especially the naval part. I'm sure it will work out. 

 

GLHF! :Smile_honoring:

Only to some, Dreadnought.  Only to some.
