    Arena Mode with a group of friends is the best. I don't even play the original mode anymore. The roar of the crowd and my friends getting nuts on vent is just the best.

    I wouldn't really say Arena is brainless or easy, but... I'd say it's more obviously influenced by bad randoms, since the entire mode is basically just one big team fight until the end and the bad players just keep dying and can't do anything helpful like pushing a lane or something you could do in Conquest. (killing minions is useful and essential but only up to a certain point)

    Since It's one big team fight I feel like it has its own set of merits over Conquest, It's truly a war of attrition and close fights are incredibly satisfactory. Especially when it's down to like 2 - 2 and the other teams by 1, I put up with a lot of stupid games and It's worth it when those games occur.

    Sadly most Arena matches pretty much boil down to whoever has more players with some balls, a lot of teams just get instantly pressed to their base because no one's initiating while the tank tries in vain to reclaim the middle ground, often the damage is off killing minions (you don't really need 4 people to kill minions lol) or jungling for 5 team fights and fighting 1 and then back to jungling for 5 more...

    Honestly, I wish there were an Arena ranked.

    I feel it's easier to carry teams in Arena than in Conquest.

    That's why I'd like to see some kind of ranked Arena queue, wouldn't have to worry about low level bads and everyone would be more serious with less people shrugging off a loss because its been cast as a casual mode. Carrying a team would probably be more difficult with more competent and competitive teams.

    Bans..?
    Arena mode..?

    I dunno. I ran a public vent server with 100 slots for SMITE, but I only played the game for 2 days, so when I invited my friend who plays Tribes onto ventrilo, he got mad that I had a SMITE voice chat. And since I am already good at League of Legends I have no reason to learn another competitive MOBA.

    another lobby style moba? wait around for 20 minutes and play for 5 minutes?
    cant even be sure i will get revenge on the guy who killed me ?

    no thanks. pls stop these silly moba random match games.
    make them open RvR pvp with balanced teams. geez so many clones.
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    Planetside 2.

    Also, it's more like wait 3 minutes, play 30-40 minutes.

    Just had two games in a row that ended with the enemy team surrendering at 11 min.
