Default Arena Mode

Two questions,

1. I think the office level is easier than all the others, is there some sort of point handicaps for the levels or not,
and
2. NPCs have mad wall hacks, is that supposed to be?

I like the lobby level the best. My current high score is 60,564 with the difficulty at 100.

1. No point handicaps. At the office, people tend to prefer either Office or Lobby...but I haven't spoken with anyone who can handle both...yet.

2. Hey, they know where you are, have infinite ammo, and in the Office area, can easily signal to each other so they know where you are.

The name of the game is survival...

69,071 for 04:07 on 100 (Lobby), just to raise the gauntlet higher.

Anyone who survives the whole 8/15 at initial 100 without cheating must get their demos up immediately for big praise (and arse-kissing).

1. Take a sanity test. Lobby is considerable easier IMHO.
2. The AI can and will shoot through anything it can penetrate (with its current weapon) to get to you, but the frequency of this action is most likely dependent on the current challange rating.

I'll say that we haven't had anyone internally even come close. I think the current record internally is 2:31...

I like the new patch especially the Arena Mode, I spent only a little bit of time on the office map and I loved it, well done Ritual on producing the Arena Mode. I will be playing more of Arena Mode when I have the time.

I like office the best because of the Office Space jokes, it is the easiest level, and fun because of the breakable enviroment.

Methinks on highest Arena difficulty:
<0:30 = Green
0:30-1:00 = Recommended dosage
1:01-1:30 = Average FPS player
1:31-2:00 = Seasoned FPS player
>2:00 = Um... Pro?
>4:00 = Die please? *All grunts convert to chaingunners, etc.*
>6:00 = MR.TIKI DEMANDS THAT YOU DIE! *Earth explodes, etc.*
7:99+ = Cheater :P

Arena Mode was released yesterday via Steam. (Re-)starting your Steam client should grab the update automatically.

Thumbs up Re: Post your Arena High Scores here!

Man i need practice, I am finding this really challenging its really awsome and i have only played like each map a couple of times and got smashed on 100 difficulty. (gaming isnt really my thing i'm only good at the Metal gear Series love em).

Ill learn in time but this is a good intro to an FPS styled games i am loving it.

I dont know how you do it in such a short time lol ur ledgends 60k+ scores in 4 mins and less.

when I get a bit more time to play I will post my scores. Office, lobby, U4 labs and turbine damn its good much harder then i origianlly thought it was going to be.

The one time I lasted till when there was only around 6 minutes left of the 15, but it only listed as playing for 2 minutes and 2 seconds... so I don't get that. I was playing on a 100 initial challenge and I found the perfect camping spot.

It would be nice if the challenge arena would give you a window (when you die) where you can select between:
end and send stats
end don't send stats
restart arena
end game

It does get a bit tiresome getting sent to the menu each time you die, which I found is quite often on extreme challenge.
