The Hustle Castle Arena is one of the more recent features brought to this absolutely amazing mobile game that keeps growing and getting better as time goes by. And in today’s article, we’re going to share with you a complete guide to the Hustle Castle Arena, as well as details on the Hustle Castle Arena Brackets so that you better understand how it works and where you should be.
There are many things that you will have to take into consideration when it comes to the multiplayer, PvP part of Hustle Castle and we’ll assume that you already know the basics here since the feature itself has been around for a while.
But there might still be things that you want to improve or might not know – and that’s what this article is here for: to tell you everything you should know about the Arena, as well as the Brackets and how they work.
We’ll start with the Hustle Castle Arena Brackets List & Guide
First off, here is how the brackets work: you have a bracket level, which is something like 6×62 or anything like that. The numbers are calculated based on the level of your Fighter room (how many fighters you can have) – which is the first number (4, 5, 6) and the average level of your fighters (which is the second number).
Based on the results you get, you will be allowed to choose one of the brackets that we list above. It’s worth mentioning that the game rounds things down instead of up. This further means that if your average level is 69.9, the game will show it as a 69. This is an important thing to have in mind when you’re close to leveling up for a bracket – delay going up for a while in order to be stronger!
Now, here is the Hustle Castle Bracket List:
4×30, 4×40, 4×47, 4×55, 4×70
5×40, 5×47, 5×55, 5×62, 5×70, 5×77, 5×85, 5×92, 5×100
6×40, 6×47, 6×55, 6×62, 6×70, 6×77, 6×85, 6×92, 6×100
Knowing the things that I have mentioned above, if you are in the first category, with a barracks level 4 and the average power of your fighters is 46.9, you will be in the 4×47 bracket. If your power is 40.1, you will also be in the 4×47 bracket. This is why a bit of planning here can get you a really long way.
Things get a bit more complicated with the Hustle Castle Arena Brackets because the game tries to keep things fair and square. This means that if you have 4 fighters and an average level of 100, you won’t really be able to do anything, as such a bracket does not exist. The same goes for any type of bracket that is insanely unbalanced – even if it exists, like the 5×100 one, you will have a tough time finding other players.
So all in all, do some optimization work on your levels, but don’t overdo it as you might end up with more to lose than gain.
Another important thing to know about the brackets is that once you go up to a more advanced one, you can’t go back to a lower level bracket. So when you choose it, make sure that you are at least somewhat competitive and stand a chance there.
Additional Hustle Castle Arena tips
Fortunately, it’s not just raw power that helps you win battles in the arena and be crowned the best player. There are some other things that you should consider in order to perform better and I’m listing the most important ones below.
1. Keep your ranks low
It’s important to try to do this and not rise to the top of the charts in the first rounds simply because defeating somebody better placed than yourself gives you more points. This means that you should be attacking opponents that you don’t think you’ll be able to defeat or those that you anticipate will be on the lowest ladder after the first couple to few attacks.
Then, you start attacking players that are ranked above you in order to get even more points. Now it’s important to go for the win, so if there are still much stronger opponents left, ignore them and focus on what you can beat.
The only exception to the rule is, of course, if you are in a group where you’re the strongest player and you have no doubt that you will be able to defeat everybody during the tournament. OR if you are among the weaker players, so scoring points is a priority: in this case, attack the 2nd weakest player first and the weakest second, then move on to more powerful ones.
2. Attack players with 0 points
We consider players inactive if they have, after a couple of rounds, 0 points. Attack them for some certain points that won’t drive you forward too much and still give you the option to attack active, better placed players afterwards. These players with 0 points are the most important early on since farming them smartly can give you a nice point boost.
3. Equipment and classes
Some team setups are better than others, while certain artifacts can give a solid boost to the fighters. Make sure that you go with an optimal team setup in battle, and that you are using both fighters and artifacts that give you an advantage. Make sure you check out the opponents’ teams as well and try to identify potential threats that might turn an apparently certain victory into a loss.
4. Copy what works for others
Although in most cases simply being the strongest player in your Tournament is the only thing that matters, when things are pretty much the same power-wise, artifacts and fighter roles start to matter. Therefore, you should always look at the other fights and learn from the ones you have lost, trying to simply replicate what gave your opponent an advantage.
Most likely, you will not always have the artifacts that they have, nor will you be able to go with the same roles, but sometimes even a small change, when we’re talking about a pretty much even fight, will make a difference.
5. Take your time
Each round, you will have a couple of minutes to analyze what’s happening in that round. This gives you the opportunity to spot the losers out of those who rush to attack, or the inactive players (which we already decided are great targets). Taking your time allows you to better choose your target and increase your chances of winning, so try to never be the first one to launch an attack.
