I've seen screenshots and I have played arena a few times myself - I am sorry but I do not like this arena update at all. As me and most of the people I've talked to agree, these new arena maps no longer reward skill, but only the skill in "timing when to jab your spear at the right time for an instakill".
No need for a long post because I already explained everything that I wanted HERE. What we want is non-intrusive maps that make the experience nicer and more scenic, not change the arena gameplay altogether.
Please either revert the arena back to normal, or make the maps something like I proposed.
