Now is the time to respec the Colosseum!

It just hit me that now would be a good time for the developers to respec the Colosseum: The current amount of medals it produces in each era are too few to make building the Colosseum worthwhile. A level 80 Arc can net a person 60,000 or more medals from a single contribution to a GB, so why not have the Colosseum produce an amount of medals per day equal to it's level x3000? (at least for higher levels over level 60, perhaps lower levels can have an incremental increase up to level x3000).

Alternatively, how about redoing the Colosseum to make it produce more medals *and* a number of free extra PvP battles per day? Players might consider the Colosseum if they're participating in PvP Arena, and it'd still be useful even if the medal award per day was still low. Perhaps also have the Colosseum be like the Arc and multiply the PvP arena awards? E.g. a level 80 Colosseum might give x1.90 rewards, so that the 50FP award becomes 95FP, and the 100FP one becomes 190FP, It might be even more desirable if it also multiplies the global ranking awards too.

GBs scale based on the age they came from. So a Arc from The Future should absolutely have a far greater output then something from Iron Age

That'd be worth exploring. Not sure what the output would look like given its age and the fact PvP isn't unlocked until Early Middle Ages

As with many things in forge of empires it’s all about balance, example being the amount of medals and diamonds spent to be in the top 50 or top 10 will be considerably more than what you get in return, if you look at the ranking tables in PvP for the server your in and any age related tables I would say without looking the player sat in 1st position will have a lvl 80 Arc of higher and would have accumulated millions of medals over the last few months, so a revamped collisium wouldn’t make much of difference and you would spend more than the amount you receive as a reward..
 
With the size of the colosseum, if it produces forge points more than 10 after level 15 then there is a possibility to give all my respect.
If not, it doesn't fit for anything.

Really like the Gladiator movie but still it cannot get a place in my city.

True, FantasticMrfrizz, but:
* Players could still build the Colosseum *and* the Arc...so it could be like what the Arc does for PvP Arena (for either medals, fights and/or rewards) what the Observatory is to the Arc with guild goods.
* The Colosseum is available to players much earlier than the Arc without having to "buy" high era goods, and without the effort of spending 1000's of fp's to get to a higher era, not to mention all the problems that come with moving up too fast.

@Emberguard Another thought: How about the Colosseum reducing the expenditure of medals in PvP arena (and perhaps also in GE?!) That would make Frizz' point redundant - If the Colosseum reduced medal costs, even if only 32% by level 75 (similar % by level to Temple of Relics), that could save a player 100,000's of medals. It'd be like an Arc unto itself, because any player intending to spend 100,000's or millions of medals in Pvp Arena would want to build it. Perhaps upon collection, it could also give an extra 1-10 fights per day depending on its level.

I like the idea. It would also make it scale with age. ‘Cause in Iron Age I could buy all the GE attempts with 15,000 medals. But by the space ages you’re looking at millions of medals if you’re buying all the attempts at the start of a GE round.
