    Whoever decided to put 3 player mode in this game deserves 300 shots to the testicles with a staple railgun. That's what it fucking feels like trying to fucking finish 3P Arena.

    I try to run with people I can trust and fucking nobody is fucking available when I fucking am. Take all the massive fucking pains in the fucking ass associated with finding one fucking partner that won't fucking fuck you in the fucking ass, and fucking double that. FUCK, you can't even fucking solo this shit with a stamina tax because it's all fucking 3P exclusive.

    I run with who is available and all I get are fucking jackasses that couldn't connect 3 fucking yellow orbs in a fucking Olympic pool of elephant piss. I'm talking the kind of jackass that has played the game long enough to get 750K fucking MP but can't do 5 fucking combos with DAthena. I'm talking the kind of jackass that brings Aizen with zero precautions for DQ. I'm talking the kind of jackass that spams fucking heartbreak skyfall buff actives when all your fucking teammates are fucking rainbow leads and need to fucking heal once in a while.

    Then you actually do get a room with some people you can fucking trust, only to get sprayed with horseshit anyway. Fucking Izanami pre-emptive on top of fucking back to back to back to back to back to back to back 99% gravity spam, on top of fragmented turns so that nobody ever gets the chance to heal in time. Fucking 30 SECONDS to move ORBS, which is hardly enough to pick a good starting point when all your orb movement time is gone and you only have 1 HP. And you can't just use an active because you have to fucking save active for your fucking Metatron burst. And you can't just leave that shit to your partner because your partner will fuck up because he has to swim in all the same fucking horseshit as you.

    And then you have to keep fucking switching your goddamn motherfucking inherits because orb refresh is fucking useless on Arena but mandatory for UDR, with guard crush being mandatory for Arena and fucking useless on UDR.

    Thank you fuck you bye.

    FUCK

    So wait, you DO or DON'T like 3p? I'm getting mixed signals.


    :hilarious: Always entertaining and agree with a lot of that. The 30 seconds is ridiculous. Good luck trying to tell your partner to stall a turn or something. I also don't understand why 2p shares skill boosts, but in 3p, which obviously takes longer to get actives up, does not. And if there's not going to be shared HP, SBs, etc, you think they would let us at least use a badge. You mentioned Aizen. I wanted to try him but 1) HP sucks ass without the badge and 2) not sure my shield would be up in time for things like DQ. Alternative is to bring base subs with better actives, but most of the time they are a massive down downgrade overall.

    Just seems they really missed the mark with a lot of things. Took 2 tries (30 secs got us first time) to do 3p Arena, and they will probably be my last for a while unless its just to kill stam with someone. All of the solo Arenas are significantly better XP, and A3 of course has much better rewards in killer latents. Why would people do this for more than just the stone...

    Im gonna be honest, nothing about 3P makes sense in context of 2P. its all the problems of solo mixed with all the problems of 2P but with an extra person to really fuck it up.

    3p is supposed to be the fun mode, so it's best to treat it like that. after all a solo or 2p arena run would be a lot more convenient and easier to run so 3p arena is really just to kill some time. but I also think it helps to run teams that can solo the 3p dungeon too if need be. then your teammates are really just cheap preemptive shields that sometimes might come in handy. if you see that a someone is running a team that is not skill lock immune just disconnect and run solo.

    Yeah the 3p arena isn't offering any unique rewards and the ultra annihilation bosses are basically grab one of them and be done way easier to skill them up with pii.
    So its largely to burn stamina for fun although those three combo heartcross players heart starving you or people bringing anubis who shouldn't can be rage inducing i also met some nice people preparing the board for others

    3P was created for the following purpose :

    1)Share some laughs (some)
    2)Learn new bad words and try to say that to your "partner" pressing one single button called "nice".
    3)Test your true skill (now you have more 2 enemy's to worry about)
    4)Learn the new conception of SMFM (solo multiplayer fucking mode).
    5) Realize that you can't share good stuffs (only the bad one)
    6)Understand what "Auto-Match" means, (it's like set up a date with a girl you meet on Aol chat)

    hahaha

    You give me a great idea... pop up one orb changer and write a big "F" with the orbs.

    Finally got 2 partners that had half a clue and cured this fucking cancer. Ronove and Radra died on Vishnu, leaving my Dathena team to go for DMeta. I cleared most of the locked orbs on the first turn and then did Balboa + Carat + Ryune for the one-shit.

    Glad that shit is over with. I don't mind the Lovecraft dungeon because it's only 7 floors and it has new and exciting drops. 22 floor 3P dungeons can fuck themselves though.

    I always solve boards like this:
    :dark::dark::dark::dark::dark::dark:
    :dark::water::dark::dark::water::dark:
    :dark::dark::dark::dark::dark::dark:
    :water::water::water::water::water::water:
    :dark::dark::dark::dark::dark::dark:

    It's the " :| " face.

    God, I havent even thought about arena yet. LOL. I ran the MP descended rush to get one of each of the drops, thats about it. Not ashamed to say I stoned for two of them. I was the last man standing on all three of them. I spent two stones on the green one, mainly because I got Another Geist with his 75% shield up so it took me two turns to kill him. (The main reason I stoned was for him since I dont have him). And I didnt have a solution for the green one's full blind board so I just ate a stone and then killed him. I think Azathoth costed me 4 stones with anubis. Totally worth it if you ask me. If I rolled Azathoth in a REM for 5 stones I would be thrilled LOL.

    One thing I noticed is that I don't suck at this game that bad LOL. And 3-P co-op confirms my belief that too many people read that 3 Haku and Loki is the optimal Dath setup so they run it, even when they obviously can't combo well enough in 5.5 seconds to use it. Team comps in PAD are like diets, they are useless unless you can use them. Saw a lot of "Optimal" Dath and Kushi setups. Sure, the perfect Kushi team is great, but if you are only getting 5-6 combos, it sucks balls. LOL.

    A solo DC guarantees a gruesome death by exhaustion at the 4 chronically masturbating hands of Vishnu.

    I thought if you had 3 Haku and Loki you were just fast forwarded to the "Clear!" screen in every dungeon. No? I know some really good people that won't touch Kushi in coop because that 2 sec badge can be so important. Dathena is a little better since you don't need 7c to kill things, but with all the time debuffs in the Arenas, it can still be a pain in the ass sometimes.

    Again, if it is supposed to be a fun mode, they missed the mark. There are none of the perks of 2p, and you play a solo team without the perks of a solo run either. But, you get to share all the bad shit the dungeon throws at your partners. None of that equates to fun.

    the only thing standing in the way is the stamina cost imo, although the usual stamina reduction events for 3p kinda fix that. can't really get too mad about an arena run for 25 stamina. and you do have some perks like certain spawns might be easier to handle for a partner or something. the usual leads requiring coop also work and those are OP anyway.

    Hahaha exactly my point! I am serious when I say that I think people truly thought that. (Evidenced by the number of people I have already seen in 3P running that team without the skill level to pull it off).

    I haven't had much practice with my Kush team either and decided to try it in 3P mode and it wasn't pretty, decided better to run Haku 2x plus Diaochan 2x just for the extra move time.
