Lol I think you are the one pathetic. You knew from the very start that CP has effect in Rank Arena. If you really want a balanced, equalized CP then go and play Karkea. Why play in Rank if you know for sure that a higher CP might beat your ass despite your skills? Be mature.
I agree, equalizing CP is no fun sometimes, sometimes you'll need a bit more of a challenge to have fun.
So adding the effect of CP gap in Ranked Arena is pretty normal. Since it affects rankings.
But that bug where the character is stuck at the start of the match while your opponent is able to move should be fixed.
Maybe increasing the count down prep time to 5 seconds should be enough to load our characters in the arena and be
able to move as soon as the match started.
