I brought this up on a different thread, but thought I would throw this out here: I propose a rules change in ADM/Primus:

Allow Lord Protectors ranked "Grand Champions" and below (ADM) and "The Tower Guard" and below (Primus) to be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena.
This would not impact the top rankings or title match. Any manager who never got his fill or shot at fighting Gateway monsters would have it as an option. I think it might generate some interest in ADM.

I would like to see it happen.

I don't fight in Primus and am just curious....why? Are you bored with fighting traditional opponents? The change doesn't matter to me at all at the moment, I'm just curious. What's to gain?

This idea is a fantastic one! I know there are a lot of people who would run a few extra fights to face one of the monsters from Gateway. For example, I don't have the time nor inclination to run in ADM because there is no risk, nor anything new and exciting there. A Dark Arena vs. a Gateway monster might just prove that interesting event to inspire me to spend some money in ADM.

I think it would make the game more interesting. You have a chance to either live or die. (yes you come back the next turn but you get no skills/raises so you are risking something.)
Also, fighting the traditional opponents gets stale when you first move in and your fighting warriors who have 50+ FE advantage over you, no shot to win. With the DA monsters, it will be unknown for sometime who is what and what your chances against them are.
I also think it might stimulate some conversations and some curious managers to see how they stack up against this new unknown challenge. Primus is boring. Most ADM arenas are quiet. No chatter. No personal ads. No spotlights. No rivalries. This is new and might help energize a few managers. I know I would run more warriors for sure.
Some managers might decide they want to get the all time kill record in ADM. That might be a goal worth pursuing. Some might say "so what, it came against the DA" but there have been other changes in the game.

I just think it would breath some life in the ADM game that has largely gone stale unless your really into the tournaments. Just a suggestion and one that I don't think would be too hard to implement.

I would even be open to RSI saying "we will implement this new change for 12 months." Then they could reevaluate if the change should be permanent or go back to the way it was.

Well met Mighty One! A brutal fight to the finish? Sounds like something High Lord Bosk might be interested in!

Wow! I see a survey popped up on this topic! Who did that?
It won't let me vote yet! Confused

Sounds like a good idea!

I only returned to 106 because my newly graduated warrior from 47 automatically showed up there [maintenance!] and then I added 4 others last cycle because other managers voiced their intentions to migrate some of their graduates to Crysalis Arena!

I'm waitin to vote! Didn't they simple change the survey question? They should reset the counter!! At the moment we have a massive head start. I havn't been in AD as long as most of you, but i can see the novelty of monster fighting. I have a warrior in 105 who cannot wait to leave there. Hes at around 100 pts and there is a big, big gap between him and the next warrior up. I dont feel like having my clobbered again by something twice his experience, so off to 106! Laughing Besides Andorak has a nasty feel to it and one does not feel welcome. I am rather disapointed. Cry

I like the idea too and would be for it as long as it is implemented the way Icelord described--does not affect the throne of any given arena.

That is one reason I hope some undecideds will support it. It does not affect the title/throne. Like I said, RSI could try it for 12 months and then re-evalute.
