    Has anyone here done rated battles yet? I understand there is a weekly cap on arena battles. I am curious how many arena points I can expect to earn if my team isn't very good. I am trying to get an idea of the time required to earn the items I want based on worst case earnings.

    A friend of mine just old me he did 12 5v5 rated battles one evening, won about 4 of the 12 games, and walked away with 400 arena points. He also said he heard that 5v5 gives more points than 3v3 or 2v2.

    5v5 does give more points, there's a calculator here : http://www.boxspherical.com/arena/index.php

    i've done a lot of rated games. my team is in the ruin battlegroup and currently rated 2008 which, when i typed this, is #2 or #3.

    I don't understand the units on that page. I don't care about my rank versus other teams. I only care about the points I can spend on arena items.

    on the calculator? you put in your team rating and it tells you how many points you'll get at the end of the week.

    I just want the 1h caster blade. The armor does not impress me.

    I was in a 5-man team for a few days. I did 12 games one night. Competitive PvP really isn't my thing. I am pretty good at it and don't have any problems working with a team, but it griefs me hard. I get all agitated and experience burnout very easily.

    I left my 5-man team tonight because the leader wanted to do more than the minimum each week and I couldn't handle it. I think I will stick to my 2-man team with red. It will be slow points but I should be able to handle it.
