    Violent Maelstrom
    Dear ArcheRagers!
    We are glad to announce the opening of the updated Violent Maelstrom arena.

    A few words about the arena itself.
    It’s a custom ArcheRage arena, specially designed for the naval battles. Arena is separated from the rest of the sea by the net and makes a square with the teams bases in 2 corners.

    Two teams will meet in the honorable battle but only 1 will become a winner.
    When you enter the arena you get a chance to become a part of a Red team or a Blue team.

    Reds' base:
    Blues' base:
    Both teams receive the same types of ships, so they are totally under the same conditions.

    In general arena received a big number of changes that will also affect arena battle style.
    How it was before, you can find in our old Violent Maelstrom arena guide [Link]

    Now more about new updated Violent Maelstrom arena!

    From now on each team member becomes a captain of his/her own boat. Big ships, that required at least 3-5 team members to navigate it, were changed to small unique color Speedboats.

    Speedboat has a number of skills + an empty skill slot, where you can add a new skill each time you use one of the swords placed all over the arena. Sword can be used not more often than once in 30 seconds. Sword provides you with one of the additional skills for 3 minutes. In 30 seconds after you received one of the sword skills you can change it to another, by reaching the active on arena sword.
    As soon as sword is used it disappears and will spawn again in some time. To use a sword and receive an additional skill you need to swim on your boat close to it. Skill will be applied automatically.
    There are also a 2 Special Skill present on arena and can be picked up on the battle field.

    Players can no longer kill each other on this arena. Player can now die only if his boat is destroyed. When you die you are teleported to your team base.
    Player respawn time after the death – 10 sec. Your boat will respawn shortly after you.
    Warning! Don’t try to sit into your enemy team boat. As soon as you get in it, you’ll die.​

    A few screenshots for you from the updated arena:

    This event was a nice change yes...however there is a lot of problems currently in the arena. For example there is a random sound bug that will just disable all sound until you randomly run into someone or something. Weapon balancing and weapon spawning is a huge issue...why would i take the torpedo, a skill shot weapon, that does 2.5k dmg over the rail-gun, which is just a point and click, and does 5.5k dmg or the flamethrower which does 800 dps so long as ur smashed into ur target...either make the torpedo have a MUCH longer range and follow the target, to an extent, or crank up the dmg! Weapon swapping CD is a joke, 25sec CD?! Needs to be more like 10-12secs. Weapon spawns needs to be buffed! I'v played some games where the spawns simply stopped working and whichever team had weapons won the match simply because the other team couldn't find anything to use to fight back with. The coins we had prior was fine! there was NO NEED to change the coins at all!!! Changing how the exchanger looks is fine so players can differentiate exchanger's, but the coins used should have been left alone, there was simply no valid reason as to why the old coins became obsolete! One last thing and it has to do with arena attempts, currently your not allowed to use bruiser badges to gain additional entry's to the arena, which is what it literally says in the description and last time i checked, violent maelstrom arena...is an arena!!!

    You mentioned the following things as bugs and problems: sound, skills, weapon, changed coins, absence of Bruiser’s Badge for extra arena entries.
    From all that mentioned the only thing that can really be called a bug is sound, however, we didn’t notice such issues with sound you described. Does anybody else have them?

    Skills were balanced by us in the way we think will be appropriate for this arena. Players get a set of identical skills + 1 extra skill that can be changed by them every 30 seconds.

    Regarding the weapon that you need to pick up to get extra skill, we have only 12 players in total but 20 spawns on arena available for the extra skills, that is almost twice more than a number of participants. Weapon spawns approx once a minute and CD on the skills was made 30 sec long for it not to be the case like in other games you described and you can use a skill you picked up for 3 minutes long. Weapon is enough for everybody on this arena and there is no need to add more. If you don't find it, you need to check better as it's all over the arena, even in some corners of it.

    Your words about arena coins are totally confusing. Arena was completely reworked and it makes sense for updated arena to get a new coin as a reward due to it. Even more, we added the option for players to exchange their old coin to new coin and not even one new but 2 new coins, so you are getting twice more in exchange.

    No possibility for extra arena entries was the intentional change and as you see there is no place where it’s mentioned that you can use Bruiser’s Badge to get extra entries to this arena.

    So idk about the sound bug ive played 10 game and EVERYTHING WORKED FINE and so did the rest of Disorderly Conduct member bases games so idk what that issue is cant comment on it. For the weapon changes i believe there just fine, CD on weapon swapping is fine as well, but the only thing i have a complaint about it the fact that Maelstrom is honestly the only enjoyable arena. So why limit it to 5, allow us to use Bruiser Badges (maybe 5 extra, for a total of 10 a day) or remove the Additional Entry. Please consider letting us use up to 5 badges for an additional 5 runs, its the only arena where gear isnt a factor and is ABSOLUTELY enjoyable!!!

    Another bug i have found today. If you do not have the quest to collect participation tokens and you participate in the arena, you will not get the tokens...but of course im sure sparkle will just tell me this is intended...

    Participation token is a quest item. Of course, you need a quest to receive it.

    I found a bug, I got the quest ''New Horizons'' to win 3 times in a row and it isn't counting when i won.

    Edit: I forgot to say that I tried to abandon the quest and get again, but stills the same bug, it isn't counting when i won

    This quest is broken, it doesn't register you winning games but it sure does fail when you loss. I have tried for the past couple of days now for this quest to record credit, even yesterday i had 3 wins in a row and it didn't register any of it so its broken. Me and a few other players who have played in VMA have spawned underneath the map with no way to get out except for drowning so this needs to get fixed unless i'm told, again, all of this is intended as i'm usually told and nothing gets fixed.

    Quest "New Horizons" works in the way that if you loose at least once, quest fails. Then you need to abandon it and retake again.
    If you don't abandon the quest after it fails, next wins will not count.
    Also, if this quest is active and you win, quest win point is not applied right away but is applied only in one minute.
