Recently in another thread Reason for arena unbalance? Eviction mentioned something about imbalance and then I replied with this idea and he elaborated and I think we may be onto something. I want to know if you all agree because with Raids being so fresh and opening up the door to potential new multiplayer content such as Dungeons and Alliance Wars I think this change of Speed implementation could be a big refresh to the way we enjoy Arena. I also would like to just say the one thing we’d have to decide is what happens with Wild Card. Maybe it could be randomized in somehow to be faster or slower via coin flip.
The basic idea of mine was speed would only matter as a number within type so the fastest Cunning creature wins, but a Cunning creature would always best a Fierce creature even if that Fierce creature had a higher speed number because the type would overtake the speed. I thought permanent might not be well received, so stated first encounter only or permanent, but permanent seems best.
Eviction made it better and stated that he would go as far as to take it into sub categories of Cunning over Cunning Fierce and Cunning Fierce over Cunning Resilent etc. I like that. I think if we push this enough we may get this one. And I really do think the overall game could benefit so it deserves its own thread.
