Arena version?

Post by billybobb » 19 April 2020, 07:37

Hi,

I would support a switch to a 2 player version in arena mode, as for similar games like Koryo. It would remove some randomness in a 1v1 match.
Also, I think that there is few players in Arena (long waiting time), so less players could speed up the things.

Yeah same for me.

Red7 is one of my favorite games, but is much better played with 2 (it's much more tactical). Or at least with 3.

With 4 players is too much random, we just try to survive. It's like a different game.
The other problem is the long queues:
It's 20-40 minutes wait at best hours, and impossible to make a group after 10 PM Uk, till 10 AM.
With 2 players will be much easier to make Red7 Arena Games, (much faster queues) and the game will look like the same we play on tournaments.

3 players could be tested as another option. Any of those is much better than the 4 players option.

Thank you,

I agree that 2 player red 7 would feel more competitive.
While there always will be some luck value to the cards you draw, playing the 4 player version the deck will often run out, and that changes how the game will play out.

A change like this would also allow quicker access to more people to reach elite league, and better competition.

Yes, please! It is almost not possible to "find" a group of four people for real time playing in arena-mode!
I tried several days and did already all my house work in the mean time while waiting!!!

Well i created an account just for Arena Red7, 2 months ago because of long queues. So I could queue there and still play other games on main account.

But was still frustrating this 40 minutes arena queues.

So I tried with that account play turn based and it was awesome.The game with 4 people it's a lot of fun. Well it's true that with 4, in 15%-20% of the games we will die fast, because of a poor hand. But on other (80-85% of games) we can plan a strategy and actually try to win.
And it's a LOT of fun.

So 4 people in real time it's very bad because of long queues and too short time to plan a strategy. But in turn based is actually fun, and interesting.

So I suggest a mixed solution for 3rd season. 4 people on turn based, and 2 people on real time.

What you guys think?

The same settings (and player counts) are required for both real time and turn based. Unless everything everywhere changes.

But maybe it's worth trying 3 players for season 3.
