I tried the new naval arena today, after finally finding the courage since the previous was so.. messy. The new version is amazing! It's a lot of fun, reminds me of the water cannon arena event back on the live servers. And on top of that ofc the nice rewards c:

The only thing that I struggle with is the targetting. From a distance it's impossible to see which boat is the enemy, you must get super close. I was actually sailing towards my teammate cuz I thought he was from the other team.. but the other team was chasing him instead of other way around, so I was sailing at dead speed at the wrong boat XD Maybe this can be changed slightly so we can see which boat is which at maybe 100m?

Edit: I didnt get updates for losing and dying in the new arena, just what i had from before:

@Aviendha To recognize the enemy from the distance you can hover your mouse over the boat. It will look like crossed swords if that's the enemy's boat.
As for that 2 achievements you screenshoted, I'm not siure I got you correctly, do you mean that 2 achievements are not updating for you even if you lose or die?

Idk if you tried the arena, but most of the time I cant keep up my mouse with the moving boats lol players are fast and unpredictable, I didn't even mention how hard it sometimes is to actually select a boat to shoot at :p

Those scores you see on the achievements are what I got during the old naval arena, I've done 6 battles now, and I lost 4 of them, died plenty, but they are stuck at the same number. I didn't check the other achievements yet that were there before the update. The new achievements work fine.

I tried, that's why recommended you the way to detect them from the distance that I was using.
Achievement "Defeats Streak" works fine and counts loses. But you are correct regarding the "Fish Feed" one. We may need to make the changes to it as arena score no longer counts players death but counts boats death only, that's why this achievement is no longer working. We'll have it reworked.

Okay thank you for the tip then, I'll try it out tomorrow x)

hmm my last lost fight didnt seem to register tho, might it be different because I used an additional entry token?

Thanks for the quick response <3
