    Can we have draft Arena?

    Have you ever queued up in Arena to have fun with this new god you bought, but then were overwhelmed by all the Ares and Ah Puch players that infest this mode. Well, that's where draft Arena comes in. It will be a sub-category under Arena. Once you click to play arena, it will ask you which mode you would like to play: normal, or draft pick/ban. It wouldn't be league arena, but it would still give you the feel of putting together a fun team.

    I mostly go to play arena just for fun. I do for the most part, but today was a little annoying. I believe I faced Ah puch 4/5 games and the most picked god for arena is probably Ares. I see him too frequently. I wish for a way to actually have fun in arena, instead of it being cheese pick simulator 2015. Oh, and don't even talk to me about Bellona.

    What about League Arena?
    I guess it would defeat the purpose of playing Arena for fun, but it would make sense to add a draft to that type of Arena. I also don't really see how competitive Arena could be, since there really is no meta (that I am aware of, except always have a tank). I'd love to still have a chance to try a competitive version of Arena.

    Regardless, I agree. A draft version of Arena would not only be more interesting, but also appreciated to those of us who are sick of going up against the same OP Arena gods every game. You know how many Ares I see in Arena queues? Ares would be a complete instaban, in my opinion.

    ranked arena would be great. as for ares lots of counters heck chang'e can crew his day up. wait for chain press 2 right before the finish and sweep his whole team with 4. haven't that much trouble out of bellona but most dont know what to do with her. get a pen assassin with good cc and they stop being a problem.

    I agree. Been playing mostly Arena since the start and it would be nice if Hi-Rez showed some love to other modes (in terms of balance, not just visual upgrade).

    Arena Leagues were removed due to terrible queue times/low population

    Considering Arena is 2nd the most popular game mode (assault being first) and number of ppl I know in game and on forums wanting arena league that wouldnt be the case (if it even was in the past). Besides back than meta wasnt strict at all and you could play anything at conquest, unlike now where ppl dont even like playing casuals anymore not to even mention ranked conquest.

    I personally don't understand how MOBA(Multiplayer Battle Arena) can have 1v1 joust ranked, damn 1v1.. but not arena?

    It wouldn't necessarily have to be leagues. It would just be pick/ban so that it would ensure that there would be no cheese in your arena games.

    Than that would make no sense either. Regular game mode shouldnt have draft/bans in it.

    While it may be one of the most popular modes most people I know that play Arena do it because it has no meta (according to most of us) and it's so casual you can do whatever with no real consequences. Besides making it competitive again would mean having to force balance around it, which we all know doesn't happen.

    Subdividing the playerbase would be a bit problematic. Maybe they should get a voting system where everyone votes for who to ban, with 5 different votes going to the leader, and with each locked vote reducing the timer left to pick.

    Or they could just balance Ares. It's JUST because of his scumbag 4-second 1k-damage cripple on a tank that he's so powerful. Nox should be able to detonate her burst at any time for reduced damage, but have it only silence after being active for 1s.

    Of course, while I'm dreaming impossible dreams, ARENA mode shouldn't have the emphasis primarily on minions. Killing two gods is necessary to outweigh killing one minion wave. Minions should only matter if they reach portals.
