Custom arena - what exactly happens after 30 days?


Recommended Posts

I like playing in small teams more than the 5v5 ranked, so I want to buy a custom arena starter kit which says it has 30 days of active time. What happens after these 30 days? For exapmle if I go on break for 3 months... does the arena get deleted? I'd really like to avoid having to get 200g for it again.

Only answer I could find was here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/1h7c4s/custom_arena_kit_question/carj74o/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3 which says that there would be a grace period before it gets deleted. The issue is that the post is 7 years old and a lot could have changed since, and the link in the comment is broken....

Thanks in advance.

It actually says it at the bottom of the wiki entry. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Custom_Arena

  • Should an arena run out of available time, there is a two week grace period before the arena will be removed. During this two week period, time tokens can still be purchased and added to the arena to renew it.
  • In the event that the two-week grace period passes without the arena being renewed, a new Custom Arena Starter Kit must be purchased and a new Custom Arena will need to be made.

I'm appalled that Anet is still charging players for custom arenas.

Here's a crazy idea. Close all the custom arenas. Allow anyone to create one when they want to host a game, any kind of game they want. The controls are in the host's hands. And 15 minutes after the last person leaves the custom arena, it automatically closes. Cause right now you just h ave dozens of empty custom arenas. The custom arena system you have created is a failure. Time to scrap it.

Here's a post from a year ago I made on the topic.
