Ahoy! We've seen a lot of ideas from people about bigger islands and social hubs, well here's another one:
Everybody knows that Rare have stated they won't be "supporting" the Arena mode anymore, I believe because of lack of players & interest in Arena...
But what if they turned Arena mode into a social hub, that could be accessible from Main Menu & also from Adventure mode through a portal? At the sea dog tavern? Archway?
You could form Ship battles (same as in Arena) but also perhaps sword duels, card games, "parkour races" & simply just form crews?
They could also perhaps increase the size of the place if needed, or maybe if it's an entirely new place?
Note: It would be in a separate world/server, just like Arena mode is currently.
Then of course people need an incentive to go back to the "Adventure world", which is Tall Tales, Voyages, events, earning Gold & Reputation, etc.
We know the game doesn't actually need this type of addition, but here it is anyways to get ideas from.
Thoughts? Happy sailing!
