No no no no no no no...is MA really being removed? D: I don't...this can't be. :( I know it isn't very popular (but even so I've met plenty of people who love it) and the rewards are currently a bit lacklustre (I blame the toolbelt for making quest kits obsolete), but that's not a reason...whyyyyyyy.

If more recent rings are added to be imbued, and and, locators are updated to not use randomised locations and, erm, the ranking system is fixed such that suicide is not the best way to get rank points, and the mechanics are slightly improved in terms of troop selection, then that should be enough, really. But even so it's already fun to play. I bet more people actively dislike Livid Farm (personally I like it) and Salt in the Wound (boo) but those aren't being removed are they? Unlike those two MA isn't really bothering anyone... well maybe completionist capers but then that thing needs a rework to begin with.

This is really depressing news...as I said there aren't many MA fans but they are there. It is *really* fun to play (if you have non-boosting opponents) even despite the clunky mechanics. And even though recent rings haven't been added, the imbued Fremennik rings are still the best in their style and the outfits are amazing. Also, there's the huge narrative potential: Bertol the HAM agent and Finda's conspiracy about "the source" and exploring the Southern Sea. I mean I suppose those are still available if just the minigame would be disabled but everything else kept, but it wouldn't be the same.

Apart from the fact that I can't imagine anyone is actively bothered by the existence of MA, and that its removal would hurt the players that do like it, there's the problem of the hiscores, and relocating the rewards and the music tracks and the completionist achievement... OH! Speaking of achievements, that's always a good method right? The scenarios are pretty diverse and as it's a strategy game, there's LOADS of fun achievements, ranging from novice

to super difficult, that could be added to entice more people to play. I've suggested a few (and would be happy to do more) but of course those aren't exhaustive.

This just can't happen. :( It's not exactly my favourite activity in the game but it's still really really fun (I like Rescue best personally), and it took so long to develop, and there's so much potential for expanding it (not necessarily the scenarios, but just the general area and ARMS itself, and its story)... just.... pleaaaase.... Surely major game content can't just be removed just like that...it's a bit rusty but not broken or anything and it does have fans and nice outfits and so much more...

I apologise for the spam but the announcement REALLY, really upset me. I swear I am not saying this because I'd be fussy over the many hours spent playing it being lost or anything (I'm not that selfish...), but because it would just only have downsides. Also apologies for not being coherent in this message, but I'm very sulky because of all this. :( And just after I'd started getting back into the game with the treasure trails update and elite dungeons, the farm and achievements...this happens. :(

Add to that the Hallowe'en event (I don't like the sound of it - rather than a fun li'l miniquest, it's another world-event-esque type thing with lots of gameplay and interaction required) and I'm plain depressed by this news. :(
