I never thought it would be making this post honestly, but I feel as if the Arena Gamemode just serves no purpose in the game anymore. This is most likely due to many factors like the lack of updates, the bugs that make the Gamemode unplayable like the Chest Turn In Ship floating in the sky, the fact that ever since the A Pirate's Life update came out, there have been less players than ever since they changed the User Interface, and moved the Arena Selection page, and many other factors led to the Gamemode's eventual death. I miss the old days when my friends, and I used to play Arena a lot when the gamemode was in its prime. I understand that even from the very beginning, the majority of the community never did enjoy Arena for various reasons, but I believe it never really got a true chance. I feel as if Arena had more gamemode options within the gamemode itself like Team Death Match (2 Ships vs. 2 Ships), Capture The Flag, and other options than just the one option, it might have stood a chance. Maybe if there was more of an incentive to play the gamemode like Easter eggs, better adventure rewards, or if it was advertised to the right audience it might have survived. Honestly I might just be nostalgic for the good old days of Arena, but I feel as if it should be given another shot, with new content for the gamemode. It might have a shot, because of the larger player base than when it released, and if there was a actual incentive to play the gamemode instead of Adventure, I feel as if people would play it. As it stands right now, Arena serves no purpose in the game, and it can take up to 20-30 minutes just to get into 1 match since almost no one ever plays the gamemode.
Honestly, I want to hear the community's thoughts on the matter, and what they think Arena could have been. Feel free to post your ideas as well.
