# 1 2v2 and 3v3
06-30-2010, 09:03 AM
This morning I joined into a FvF cracked planetoid and it ended up being a 2v2. It was one of if not THE best time in an arena I have ever had. Devs. if you are reading this which I hope you are, we need 2v2 and 3v3. They are fun and would be a stop gap for uneven arenas. If I am beating a dead horse I apologize.

Keep beating the horse, I approve of 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 options.

2v2 and 3v3 are generally better arena formats, as history has shown (cf. Blizzard's experience with optimal team size for WoW pro tournaments). They also work better for small/shrinking populations like STO's for critical mass reasons. Furthermore, people have an easier time getting together 1-2 buddies than 4-5 in general.

As an added bonus, the lower attentional resource requirements of a 2v2 or 3v3 engagement also allows for more players to participate meaningfully without suffering from cognitive overload and playing badly because of it (end result: less steep learning curve).

Basically, 2v2 and 3v3 are much better ideas in general, and your experience bears that out.

Agreed. I'd also like to see 1 on 1.

I'm trying to envision a 2 neg'vahr vs 2 sovereign fight in an arena match with no time limit. First pair that says "screw it" and gives up loses?

This kinda goes towards a larger request that I think a fair number of people have, and that's an organized arena system (with 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5) that comes complete with ladder and whatnot.

If/When they include Open PvP I think that would end up being the perfect time to include arena ladders and variable team sizes.

I could see that lasting awhile. Today it was 2 escorts (my team) vs. escort/cruiser team. It lasted for about 30mins. but it was 30mins. of hard fighting, fun. As it being a stop gap for uneven teams if they put in 2v2 it couldn't become the all to familiar 5v2 . I agree though and think we need a time limit on arenas.


Now that I think of it. Nothing would stop teams from getting ahead by a kill and either cloaking or running until the timer ran out if we had a time limit.
