Many new users have misunderstood the ARP system

  • 14

New users that have to come here for the Path of Exile horns exclusively seem to be quite confused about the ARP system. Some are trying to get ARP by flooding the forums with low effort posts because they believe they can get lvl 5 by trading votes. The reality is that your votes wont gain you many points if any at all.

The amount of ARP you are rewarded from a post is calculated from an invisible CG (Community Gain) scoring system in which you gain more points if a higher level user upvotes your post and low level users have little to no effect. Another thing to keep in mind is that most of these low effort threads get deleted and you lose 10 ARP and all points you got from that post. On top of that users who upvoted a post that was later deleted lose 1 ARP.

If you're here just to get the horns then try making a bigger effort when making a post. Try to make something that the higher level users would like to see. If you want you can read more on the FAQ or the sticky ARP guide.

The main issue is that 1. It's free stuff, and 2. The promotion runs "from March 23rd to March 26th PDT."

If you mix people really wanting the free carrot dangling in front of their face and a time limit, it's not going to result in worthwhile quality contributions, it will just create a mad frenzy of people scrabbling for ARP by whatever means necessary. 


I see so, some users understood it so much, that in a couple of days they scored several hundred points :)


It's obvious that forcing clueless newcommers to level up for rewards will cause nothing but spam. People just want to grab their loot and leave for good. It's only nautral for them to not care about site rules. I think this was a lousy giveaway.


kinda assholery statement, "make an effort if you are here for the horns" ... alienware and GGG have to make an effort to not scam people with such baited "gift" that just outrageous to use such method still in 2020 dont reverse role about who is in fault here they push people to go for this so they can only blame themselves.

And people most of them didnt took bad the ARP system its just that no matter what you cant really without beeing anoying anyway make those level 5 easily ! thats systeme and gift is kinda bullshit


The high Level Requirement was imo definitely a bad move. The difficulty in obtaining ARP also isn't helping and the mention that its a Limited Amount of said Keys in a short amount of time didn't help. Hopefully this is a lesson that GGG and Alienware learn next time. You just end up with spam posts and people annoyed and angry on both sides.

TBH I didn't mean to seem rude about it. This post was supposed to warn people about the ARP loss and possibly a better way of making more ARP in less time. I agree that the system is messed up and if I was here to stay I would want to have more than one daily mission per day.

you had 20k horn keys from the refferal link from the Path of Exile website. And 10k keys got limited to a level 5 account to give members of AWA a chance to grab them too. As i said in another post i got it yesterday and there was 1500 keys left at the time. People expect to get free stuff without any effort and get angry when they can't.
