    This has nothing to do with "fair play". Things covered by "fair play" include throwing games to boost your friends, using broken combos like Beast/Lantern/Warlord, etc.

    Even being a douchebag and using ironite refreshes to lower someone's score because they made you look a right arse on the forums is "fair play", albeit a stupid use of ironite.

    I kept a weak defense up until I finished the only challenges that I was worried about - 3 power moves & fury move - and then switched back to one of my typical defense teams. I happen to like ranking highly - sometimes for the reward souls, but even when not that, for the free ironite. It's helpful in building up a stash that can then be used to, for example, buy enough souls for Madame Fortune without worrying about ironite reserves going forward. It's a personal choice for anybody who wants to do it; some people like to drop levels so they can farm irons coins more quickly, so except in the top tiers there are typically single Eds or weak defenses all the way down. But I think it's absurd to imply the anybody has an obligation to help you - or anybody else - and is not "playing fair" if they choose not to do so.

    This discussion happens almost every arena event. At least this event doesnt require 500 wins. If you run a weak defense, at least until you complete 20 revenge battles usually raises your rank. Everyone has thier own reasons for how they play.

    Regarding setting a "weak" defense....
    a lone Eddie made sense when the Arena challenges were purely quantity of wins, BUT nowadays the arena events are less about winning and more about applying/using: buffs, fury, debuffs etc. So a weak team should replace the "lone Ed."

    I currently am using old Christmas toons I use to hold unpowered talismans inventory, plus one has a set of Celestials to give you time to build up power points to use to apply negs/buffs.

    This is all just my opinion, but I believe a change needs to occur where the new standard for such arena challenges is a weak team replacing a lone Ed.
    Besides, the only cheating going on is the AI when it ignores passives or plays unfairly due to bugs.

    If I ever meet that Artificial Intelligence walking down the street.... I'm going to kick it square in the nutz!

    My team is Edward the Great and 3 level 1 gunner Krampus. I ended up getting 5 randomly in souls, what else will I do with them?

    Also running a weak defense here.
    I do understand the frustration... in the last event I started to put up a weak defense the first day.
    After being defeated 31 times in a row by teams that did not have a weak defense I switch back to a stronger defense team.
    This time it seems more out there are willing to help others... so I will probably leave the weak defense on ( Coal giver (After 3 years of hunting!!!) with some other Christmas characters )

    Ive had a continuous weak defense for months and always finish above 3500. I usually revenge everyone as its always full plus take on attacks. During these events though, I refuse to revenge those that are not setting up weak defenses.

    Same here, except that I never revenge the non-weak teams and still finish over 3000. For me the Arena is not a competition but a cooperation against the "non-cheating" AI.
    Cheers to all other constant-weak-defence-team fellows.

    Sorry if I go a bit off topic, in the last few hours I cannot revenge anymore in the Arena, all players are indicated as CAN'T REVENGE.
    Does anyone can explain me what's happening?
    Thanks

    Maybe you hit your max number of revenges for the day? You should be able to start up again after reset.
