(Haven't seen any suggestion of the sort in the forums, sorry if one exists.)
I really enjoy PvPing in pit people. I however find it difficult / long to find an opponent, mostly due to the low population of the game. (at the time of this message)
If you guys played banner saga : factions (the stand alone pvp of the banner saga), they had a rather similar population issue.
The way they fixed it is by implementing a "pop up" banner on screen for all players in town once a player started queueing for pvp.
I think Pit people could benefit from a similar system, maybe even allow out of town people to "quick travel" back to town to engage in the arena.
Again, love the game, keep it up Behemoth (y)
