The easy fix would be to give everyone a slave collar with explosives. When the timer hits zer0 BOOOM

It doesn't work that way. The little turds hide in a corner and glitch themselves so Sudden Death doesn't kill them. Its a totally retarded mechanic that needs to be fixed. Stealth Scan doesnt work.

Please post a video of this "glitch" because I've never seen nor heard of such a thing where someone can sit in a corner and not be injured from sudden death.

It's not a glitch, it's an l2p issue.

I doubt the purpose of an arena was to let a team win with first skill after having spent 3 minutes doing nothing. Also, I doubt it is right that a single stealther healer should win against 2 or 3 enemies at full health just because that player hid away for minutes and survived sudden death 1 sec longer.

Anyway, thank you for your responds, now that I realized I should expect stealthers to do this more and more often, I will no longer play arenas.
its funny cause you are on the forums complaining about something in game... life's too short, eh??????

One may never grow old to play games, but the older you are, the more you regret every minute wasted.

Everyone needs to take a break every once in a while. It used to be darts, pool, ball sports or playing cards, why would a computer game be different nowadays?

For the stealthers relying on this, yes.

It's a deathmatch, not hide and go seek. In any other pvp format, abandoning the objective and hiding in a corner until time runs out nets you a loss. And yet some of you think this is meant to be a legit "strategy" in arenas...
Vrrrrrm vrrrrm!

I think the people that you speak of are the same people that think their overpowered class is not overpowered and you just need to learn to play.

I think if they get their *** kicked and they resort to hiding they should lose. They did get their *** kicked after all.

This game isn't winning people over with it's spectacular PvP system I will tell you that. Come the new games if they don't have these issues, you might see some more reduction in the player base.
