— In-game Description


The Combat Arena is a building that is released in the 4.5 Patch. It's part of the PvP system that allows players to play PvP in real time (Synchronous) against random players and friends, as well as Asynchronous against other players' defense armies, for Gold and Resources. It is unlocked at Level 5 along with the Battle Flag, which is also needed for PvP.

To participate in Asynchronous battles, players need Resource pvp energy PvP Energy which is generated by the Arena at a rate of 1 per hour. Since the 4.7 Patch, players can also acquire PvP Energy as a reward for winning battles in the Arena.

Morgan2 You ever think, 'You know, this Outpost is really missing an arena where we can enjoy friendly bloodshed with other Outposts without the commitment of a messy war?'
Npc engineer full~ipad I was going to say clean drinking water and worker's compensation, but I suppose we all have different, often incorrect, priorities.
Npc sergeant full An arena WOULD improve our strategic positioning and my general cheerfulness.
Npc engineer full~ipad Seriously, you too? We're really going to build an arena, and not, you know, a working irrigation system? Or some proper roofing for the orphanage so they're not all crushed in their sleep?
Npc sergeant full ….
Morgan2 ….
Npc mechanic full~ipad Yeah, let's go build an arena!
Finish mission
Morgan2 Well, I think I've really outdone myself. This arena is a thing of beauty.
Npc engineer full~ipad It's casting a shadow so big the Buddha Hand crops are withering.
Morgan2 Floyd, you need to think of the big picture. You need to think, any moment now, I'll be watching Perkins run for his life from a pleather front-row seat. While I'm sipping on a mojito. And laughing.

Morgan2 This already sounds like too many obstacles.
Npc sergeant full After our formation is set up, then others can battle us. And we can battle THEM.
Finish mission
Npc sergeant full Well, that battle was invigorating.
Npc mechanic full~ipad Y'know, the battles might be more interestin' if we added some kind of twist! How about floodin' the arena with lava? Oh, or buzzsaws!
