I'd love to be able to get my regular team into an empty map to discuss strategies and game plans, especially with the tighter 4v4 ranked coming up. Even helping new players unfamiliar with PvP in a practice map would be fun.

So, is there any chance can we get some kind of PvP Practice Mode where it's just us in an empty map to figure stuff out?

Maybe to help with this, they could make a group duel request.

That way teams on the same side can use this to enable the above request.

Get your 4 man premade, queue regular, get 4 man arena pop versus pug group = practice mode.

Practice mode is level 10-54.

Enjoy!

And, any decent 4-man premades in wzs now should be good in arenas. It's just kill kill kill. It's not complicated.

Not the same thing. I'm not talking about having team practices to beat up on pugs, I'm talking about being able to talk strategy and try new "plays" in an empty practice field.

Also not the same thing. Anyone can beat up on pugs with a premade. With the new 4v4 ranked coming up it's important to be able to figure things out and especially when playing a team we know about how to play specifically to counter their tendencies.

And it *is* complicated... what class abilities do you have? What will you do if you have this and that but not those? How many stealths do we have this time that we didn't have last time?

If they want to take ranked seriously at all we need some kind of practice field to work out on.

Is this game really that difficult for you?

I will simplify for you:
Step #1: kill their healer
Step #2: kill their dps
Step #3: kill their tank (if they even brought a tank, which in ranked may not even be viable)

"Plays" in an arena? Stealth? Mostly irrelevant in a team deathmatch environment unless you or the other team is planning to hide til the gas comes in.

There are obstacles to use for LOS but other than that it's kill their healer and mop up the rest. If you are thinking beyond that, i'm sorry to say you will be very disappointed with arenas.

I predict the two most effective arena FOTM groups will be:
1. Jugg tank, sorc heal, carnage mara, engy sniper
2. Veng/immortal hybrid jugg, op healer, 2 engy snipers or 2 carny maras.

It would be nice to see the neglected classes get some love, but that won't happen in 2.4.

Why are you being a dick to me?

All teams, regardless of what sport they play, like to have practices and this is no different.

The game is not difficult for me and I'm just trying to get something together here. What's your problem?

Most of the times, the healer has to be cc'd and one of the damagdealers is first to die in arenas.

There won't be a practice mode. Regs are practice. If you want to try out some tactics you have to do this in regs.
There you can try out fancy tactics etc.
