Maybe an Arena?

Hello there, I was talking with a couple of people in-game and the subject of an Arena came up.

It's not really a suggestion, I'm just trying to see if people have discussed that, and what opinions do you have.

My initial idea would be to create a small circle kind of thingy, doesn't have to be a stadium, in a couple of planets, which would be a place that people go to when they want to have fair duels. Ganking and open world pvp ofc continue, nothing stops them.

My only issue is, do you think it would take away from the open-world PVP? It doesn't have to. It's like, safeguarding some little spaces with droids/turrets to turn them into safe spaces. They are not official, or 100% secure, and they still don't break the savage character of the game so it's a win-win, potentially.

Places like arenas could also help with in game events, maybe. I guess there are many "landmarks"/spots that will be added to the game at some point, so this could be one of them. Just like in FoM, you had so many spaces to walk around or things to see, even if they didn't serve a day to day purpose, they helped with the simulation/roleplaying type of aspect.

And yes, we can do all this on our own either way, organize duels, so don't use this as an argument. There are many things we can do on our own but we still demand the in game equivalents to make it official and good looking. That would be all.

Maybe instead of directly making areas. A better plan would be to have an arena mindset when constructing areas in general. Well to the point of thinking, hey this spot here would be cool for fight if it had these or that, etc.

That way then we have those spots, but they're not as predominate to be seen as an "arena".

An open-ish area with storage + healing terminals would work fine for duels and such if an arena isn't possible. Mars used to be really good for this before the change

I think giving GOTC an arena is an interesting idea, could see Syndicate having deals with cells to run fight night or something. Before factions get their shit though can we have an open temp arena? Push announcement for fights, get screenshots, profit. Remove on release or whatever.
