I'm anxious to try this out.

But since this is to be "melee" areas only, I trust that there will be a dampening field that prevents Kits, abilities, and consumables from being used. And be great if you can have the effect making everyone on the same level. That way Tacticals wouldn't have the advantage over Scis or Enginers who can't train in martial arts. And everyones shields and nobody had the advantage over another by using physical armor or certain shields.

BTW, I like the idea of Rura Penthe, but why not reuse Forcas?

And think we could add a FFA Arena on Drozana? That way Fed and Klingon players can mix it up.

Curious what the other maps would be, we know the Nopada Arena is one.

Just hope the KotH map is larger than the Shanty Town maps. I honestly would love see a Shuttlebay arena where players can fight down hallways on three different levels and have twists like turning on force fields to make the other team go another route or blowing conduits to injure or slow players.

Also as I've said in other threads, some of the issues that players have voiced their concerns about are being looked into by myself and some other devs, particularly spawn camping (This was one of the very first things I brought up even from when S4 hit Tribble.) I'm out to try and make your ground PvP experience even better!
Lets hope so, it is pretty fun once the healing, 1-shotting, and spawn camping has been dealt with.
