Arm Wrestling

Last Updated:
The Arm Wrestling mini-game is probably the least-skill-based PVP sports Event in the game, which is likely why it is not the best liked... There are locations for you to play it spread all over the map, and when you get there and host a game you will have to find another player to play with you (there is no NPC opponent).

The game of wiggled joysticks. Seriously. This might be fun once. Once.

To play you simply move the stick left-and-right as fast as you can. The player who does it faster and longer is the player who wins. Losing gains you no RP/XP at all, while winning does.

When a match ends if you quickly hit X before the screen cycles you can issue a re-match challenge but your opponent has to accept for it to go into effect.

On the downside this is one of the Events in the game that is buggy - as the game loads an instance each time you enter the mini-game, it has to transition you back out and into the main game each time and that is where the bug tends to kick in, with the game either crashing or failing to reload the server upon exit.

I don't believe that arm wrestling was one of the mini-games that they expected players to really get into... Just saying.

How do they slam you on the first second of the match? As soon as it said go they won. Something fishy.
