Welp, it was fun while it lasted. Now you can barely get AW lobbies with more than 5 players.

So, what was/were your most memorable AW moment(s)?

My only memory with Arena War is purchasing the workshop so I can remove the damn ram from Imperator's front, and customize Sasquatch (naturally to make it look as clean as possible, with no post apo crap all over). Never visited it again, and I never, not once, participated in any of its gamemodes, since I simply loathe PvP and can't help it.

 

Rest in piss, Arena War, where you belong. It was clear from day 1 you're nothing more than a glorified, paywalled adversary mode which will last maybe for a month. It may have been a decent update, though, if only it featured some non combative modes, like Dirt Ring. And also pay anything for playing, because its payouts and grindy unlocks are miserable.

The array of amazingly retarded vehicles, which I hated at first, but then grew to love. I now have an Issi Classic and an AW Issi Classic, for example, and both or them are amazing.

 

I enjoyed the shunt capability on my Sasquatch and it's ability to flatten people and score crazy goals, as well as its forward flip, hill climbing abilities, independent 4WD, and jump+shunt shenanigans.

 

I enjoyed accumulating trophies for my Arena trophy cabinet too.

 

What I didn't like was the cost of the upgrades to the cars, and often downgrading vehicles instead of upgrading them in order to look good. Mixing and matching of car parts in AW is crazy expensive, and put a lot of people right off. Take note, Rockstar! And based on the release of the AW creator yesterday, Rockstar must have thought people would be lapping this all up, crazy for new races and creations, not!

They missed the boat for sure regarding the use of the arena. It shouldn’t just be mad max style stuff. Proper dirt track would be great. Maybe even monster truck events. Motocross events with some mods for the Sanchez would be cool. 

 

It is an arena. The uses are endless really....

I bought all 12 Future Shock variants. I think over the weekend I might have the last of the boost and vertical jumps I still need to add. Then I think it might be time to move on some other part of the game.

Trolling people with Issi by jumping on a plane wreck (the one on the left from your spawnpont)  and watching 10 monster trucks lose their sh*t.

cutscene intro was fun as well.

And the sad part is it could be a great update without that ridiculous grind. If they would let us create other modes inside the arena (like LTS, DM. Survival) then the community could make it last for a very long time.

It honestly feels like this DLC came out so long ago, it doesn't feel like 2,5 months.

Maybe it's because of RDR2 which I played so much in the past month, but this DLC was hardly something to remember.

The arena should have been the location of the Nascar races.

 

Would have been way better than the floating stunt track sh*t.

Best memory is easily owning another 27 PV spaces, lol. 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed the new trinkets, awards and trophy cabinet, and getting my beloved Go-Go Blista.

AW gave me the bladed 380, which created so many magical moments at LSIA this week.

 

...that has to count for something, right?

Cool cars and it gave us in my opinion the best looking car in the game with the clean imperator (maybe I like the dukes more, hard to pick) but the modes and pricing are just SO BAD. I made a death bike and the mentioned imperator and gave up on furthering the collection.

 

I sometimes wonder if rockstar wants to kill their own content with anemic payouts.

 

How many arena cars are there? I'll collect them eventually when I have nothing else to buy in like a year as I just started. Not being able to bring them on a heist is a baffling and stupid choice.

Blowing up every motorbike user on Wreck It and winning everytime with ZR380 Kinect mines and the respawn button to refill them. It doesn't matter if your 3 laps ahead when you hit a bomb. Same thing can be said for Flag War, only with the addition of the kinect launcher on the Sasquash. Other than that, I'm happy to see "Adversary Modes Reloaded:  Monetized Edition" go. I don't think I need to repeat the reasons already stated.

12 in 3 variants each excepts it's more like 2 variants, because Apocalypse and Nightmare only differ in color. Apocalypse has rust/metal where Nightmare has colors/logos.

Probably off topic, but can you remove the shield from the Future Shock Dominator? I’m thinking about upgrading my Dominator I’ve owned since last gen.

the tombstone in the backi? no, it's stuck with it. You can press a button to fling it off though.

There was that time I got six direct hits with the remote missiles in Games Masters and not a single one counted. That was fun.

My most memorable moment was when Bryony tried to make me go in there. I pressed the circle button to back out of it and when the cutscene started up again, she said "You did great." lol.

 

I love the new muscle cars and my RC Bandito, though.

arena wars is actually so cool, i'm impressed by the work that rockstar have done with this dlc,

the arena creator offers so many potential and opportunities especially in making videos with rockstar editor, its like you have a ready customizable mad max set..

 

 

the ability to create races and deathmatches inside the arena, with those new props and stuff, its so cool, the lightnings, the props, everything is gorgeous..

and its not dead in my opinion, 2x$ on arena war a week each month is good and enough.. like an actual event,

 

i love you all..

no AP awarded in created arena jobs. no replays means a person will have a hard time filling a lobby for their created arena content. Even if someone fills the lobby for their created race/deathmatch, they can only run it one time and then everyone is forced right back into the stock arena events. Then we can't place any traps, only gun towers. Yeah, it's nice to have a creative outlet in the arena, but it's pointless if there is no AP awarded because there is no motivation for anyone to want to play people's arena creations. At this point, the only way we can even 'play for fun' is to have 16-30 friends in parties that are willing to either reload the event over and over, or commit to a playlist comprised of the created event(s).

 

So, at this point, it's rather lame.

Deathbike probably killed it. This is what happens when you introduce an OP vehicle into a game mode and don't fix it.

If any vehicle is OP, it is the Sasquatch with unreal agility, mines, projectiles, and the ability to just drive over top anything else and destroy it. Bikes are versatile but weak. One explosive hit usually does the bikes in. This includes other vehicles exploding nearby.

 

Arena sucks for a lot of reasons that aren't OP vehicles. First off, game modes that suck. Buzzer Beater = Sucks. Tag Team = Sucks. Games Masters = Sucks. The Nightmare Arena setting, with all of that trash strewn throughout = Sucks.

Bomb Ball and Flag War, which can be fun at times, are typically made to suck by the ignorance and/or selfishness of teammates.

Here Come the Monsters sucks because of the way the teams rotate. Somebody can dominate as a gladiator or contender, then wind up losing because of an unfortunate draw to the team that didn't reach the rounds won threshold.

Hot Bomb is just a fancy game of tag. 'Nuff said there.

Wreck It is a race requiring more luck than skill.

Carnage has a suicide glitch that can keep the actual winner from actually winning. ($)

-There's no real return on the investment one makes in fully modding a vehicle.

-Eliminated competitors can screw over the 'winners' with little toys.

- Then when we think that the creator will breathe new life into the Arena, we are limited to making only races and deathmatches, that award no AP, and cannot be replayed.

-Not to mention that we pay out the wazoo for RC Banditos that we can't even use in the Arena. = Sucks

-Snip-

I dunno, I feel like I'm the only guy who liked the Arena War modes the way they are and I'm the kind of guy who hates adversary modes. Adds tension for all players I guess since GTAO has always favored rich kids over people with less dough. You could drive a maxed out custom car in AW but if you aren't careful, you could still get taken out by an RC car or something.

 

Now I've tried both the Sasquatch and the Deathbike and I've come to the conclusion the Deathbike is worse. It's super agile ad speedy, appropriate for a bike. Yet if I remember correctly, it comes with guns by default which no other default car has. It has about the same amount of health as some of the other cars and you can only fall off it by driving up a wall yourself. Combine all these together and a recipe for disaster has been created.
