How Does the Arena Work?

Hustle Castle Arena is one of the game modes available in the game. This game mode allows you to challenge 14 other players in a PVP-like style to see who among the 15 players can get the most tournament points. The player with the most tournament points gets handsomely rewarded with Badges of Valor and chests. You can also use your tournament points to get good equipment from the Arena shop, such as weapons, armor, jewelry and artifacts.

How to Join the Arena

To join, a player may either bet food or tournament ticket. The arena rewards differ depending on the item you paid as a bet. Betting tournament tickets for entry gives you better rewards than betting food. Plus, you'll win more badges of valor in betting tournament tickets. Of course, the reward you will get in the tournament also depends on the rank you'll get at the end of the tournament. The higher the rank you get, the higher amount of Badges of Valor and more chests you will get from the arena.

Tournament Rounds and Points

The tournament takes about 5 rounds of 2 minutes and 30 seconds. In each round, you'll have to choose one opponent and battle it out to the death. Each won fight will award you with tournament points. The longer it takes you to defeat your opponent, the less will be the tournament points you will get.

In each of the last four rounds, players will be ranked by their number of tournament points. Players with same tournament points will be ranked based on their battle prowess or battle points. Defeating another player with higher ranking will give you more tournament points.

Tournament Brackets

The maximum tournament points you can get in each round depends on the tournament bracket you are joining. Tournament brackets depend on the average level of your players and the level of your Fighter Training Room. The higher the level of your players and Fighter Training Room, the higher tournament bracket will be available for you.

How to Win

Having the strongest army will more likely to win you the Arena. However, being the strongest doesn't make you necessarily the best runner for the title. It also entails good strategy and right timing to win the tournament. Knowing which battles to fight and when to fight it wisely will definitely take you to the top even if you are not the strongest.

Don't you worry, though—we have laid out all the strategy, tips and tricks that we've discovered so far in this Arena guide.

Guide to the Arena Brackets

Players joining the Arena are grouped together according to brackets. According to the Hustle Castle publisher, a player's bracket depends mainly on the average level of the player's fighters and the number of fighters available in a player's barracks. However, it doesn't seem to be accurate at all. There's definitely other factors to consider in the bracketing of a player. In fact, even if you try to lower down your fighters' average level by banishing one of them, you will still belong to the recent bracket.

Using the Table Below

The table below shows the different brackets existing in the arena. The column headers refer to the number of fighters in your Barracks while the row headers refer to the average level of all your fighters in your Barracks.

Legend

  • O: This symbol represents existing brackets.
  • X: This symbol represents non-existing brackets or brackets which lack players.

Brackets which lack players takes time to find a match. However, they are usually easy to conquer considering the small amount of players that belong to this bracket.

Oftentimes, beginners tend to stay longer in levels lower than 70 to farm for good equipment and crafting materials. However, it is actually recommended, that you stay longer in a certain bracket to farm for equipment and crafting materials only when you are at least above level 60 and have at least 5 fighters. Lower level equipment tend to become obsolete faster; thus, its best to rush your fighters to a higher level and from there, spend time in farming for good equipment.

Strategy Guide for the Arena

The following strategies listed below do not guarantee you the top prize in the arena, but they will guide you on how to approach the arena depending on the circumstances you are encountering. All of these strategies fully exploit the rules in the arena so they are almost the same but they differ on how and when to implement it.

One of the rules being exploited in this guide is the rule which gives you bonus tournament points whenever you are attacking a player whose rank is higher than yours. It may not be able to perfectly fit on what you need but it will definitely help you in making your own strategy in the Hustle Castle Arena.

1. Search and Destroy Strategy

This is recommended if you are the strongest among all or at least strong than most of your opponents. This strategy entails listing down the power rating of opponents that ranges from the least to 5% more than yours. Take the average power rating to guide you which opponent to attack for each round.

In the first 2 rounds, let's try attacking opponents lower than the average power rating of your list. We don't want to get to the top in the first few rounds so we will be attacking opponents who will not try to attack the weakest opponents. On the last 3 rounds, get bonus tournament points by attacking opponents above your rank. Choose the weakest among those above your rank. If you can no longer find targets above your rank, pick out the weakest.

2. Wait and Attack Strategy

This can be applied to any player who is at least stronger than 8 or at least 4 opponents. This involves skipping the first round of the arena. We can't guarantee that weaker opponents will have higher ranks than us in every round so to do that we'll have to skip the first round. Its definitely not going to put you at a great disadvantage as compared to players who attack in all of the rounds because the bonus points that you can get in attacking opponents above your rank will compensate for your lost round.

For example, in lvl 55 bracket, regular points can give you a max of 50 points while bonus points can give you a max of 75 points. You can get a max of 250 points with normal points but if you can get bonus points for each round in just 4 rounds, you can get a max of 300 points. Once you skip the first round, you can then apply the Search and Destroy strategy above.

Additional Tips

  1. Attack Strong Idle Opponents: Idle opponents are those who are not attacking in the arena, mainly because they've gotten disconnected. Usually, you can identify them if they have 0 points even after the second round. Of course, you'll have to attack idle opponents whose power rating is less than yours. They are good targets because you can get average points from them and they don't pose any risk of ranking above you in the tournament. Doing so, you'll be able to get decent points from them while not being able to get a higher rank in the early rounds. This means you'll be able to get bonus points from weak opponents who get ranks above you.
  2. Wait Out the Clock: Each round gives you about 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Its just the right amount of time to analyze and choose which opponent to attack in each round. Attack at the last 30 seconds to identify which opponents are not attacking or have lost the rounds. You'll be able to decide better which opponents to pick judging by their results in each round.
  3. Record Your Losses: Power rating is not the only factor that decides the outcome of the battle. At times, opponents having lower power rating than yours are actually stronger than you and can even defeat you during battle. Factors like artifacts and fighter classes can also affect the outcome of the battle. These are the opponents you have to take note. Check out their fighters' classes and the artifacts they are using. Through that, you'll be able to identify if an opponent is a potential target or not. Also, you can try to copy and implement their squad's setup. Experiment if it works for your or not.

We hope that this guide will help boost your ranks in the Arena. Happy betting!
