Never enough players in Arena

Post by Lou1990lou » 19 January 2021, 15:36

In every other game that I choose to play i Arena realtime mode I find enough people within the 10 min "choosing" slot. In Via Magica I have not once been able to do so.

Is there a possibility of making it less players i the arena games?

I have updated the setting to 3 players. Hope it helps starting games more easily. That's a very nice game for the arena :)

Still really hard to find games and I agree that's a perfect arena game.
Any thoughts on lowering it to 2 player?

Honestly the game is best played with three and possibly four since deciding when you've opened enough portals is really critical in a two player I just don't see that happening.

I have had success playing turn-based to always find an arena game, real-time is much harder I try to encourage someone join in the General Messages since it is a premium game and you should have permissions.

Wish folks luck, as I really enjoy this game!

Sorry for digging up this thread again, but do you think going back to 2 players Arena game for Season 5 could be an option? Waiting time is still too long, and after being able to try both 2 and 3 players settings during season 3 and 4, 2 players games feel much more satisfying (personal opinion obviously).
Thanks !
