- PURE 180 Arcs aren't yet "common" but are very special decisions by owner. They represent focus and goal achievement. ANYONE that has lifted their ARC above 80 to any degree has made a level of game strategic decision to pursue added benefit in the design of the game that allows them to profit from game standard 1.9 investment concepts - to a goal for added game benefits.
IN N world for example, there are nearly 500 ARCs over 120. The owners of those have chosen to FOCUS intently on lifting them to that level , or has treated the lift there to 120 and possible higher as just "one of the gang" they're lifting over time - meandering along.
But the vector is clear. Very clear to me and seemingly - LOTS of other people.
More ARCs are going up faster that Krakens or HCs or Trazs or BG or just about anything else. People understand ARCS (or learn about their power) first - and it changes their game DNA.
CF's and ARCs have historically been highest lifted buildings - for good reason. AO also has recently got a buffed shine for value at those lofty levels for many things too - bragging rights, and intrinsic help to the game - as expensive as it is.
And it doesn't take 3.8 years to lift an ARC to 180 - if you know what you're doing. Not even half that.
You can't make 5-10K FP a day @ Arc 130 via 1.9 multigroup investments unless you have a bed by your computer and you're fed through a intravenous drip and are awake 24 hours/day. IN other words, you don't have to be a topic lizard running a race to grab high value posts unless that's your idea of fun.
Sniping hoodies is also ridiculous as a strategy to lift an ARC to 180 in a time frame shorter than a decade.
@ ARC 130 - it takes investments on 50 people's buildings @ 2000 base FP on EACH reward position to make 5,000 FP. NOT hardly gonna happen each day, week , or maybe 1 time/quarter. In other words - not how you do it.
Most people lifting their ARCS are supplementing their daily haul with FP collections - but not all. Many have used the cash-cow GBG farming to get help and move them agressively up.
I can't check the spec on each world, but if you haven't looked - you should. The American servers are replete with ARCS in both FAST and slow progress higher than 80 - LOTS OF THEM - THOUSANDS and tens of THOUSANDS.
Gettting to 180 is a deeply personal choice - analogous to giving up your life to come back in here every 4 hours for 10 days, to fight in GbG.
There are tools to do a global list of ALL world ranked GBs - I don't have those tools but others do and have posted screen shots of a few pages last year, in November, 2022.
I"m sure the current list is much deeper and attentive to ARC/CF and AO growth than this, 5 months later.
