HoboArena is a special, short-term HoboWars version that provides both young and new hobos a chance to battle each other on a level playing field. All hobos start at age 1 and compete for a short amount of time to see which hobo is truly the greatest.

HoboArena Version 2

In 2013, HoboArena received a complete makeover. The code was updated to use the current codebase of HoboWars and Facebook HoboWars (and eventually HoboWars2). This allowed for events such as Adventures, UFC, the updated Side Wars setup, among other events and areas. However, due to the short competition event time of 90 days, some aspects of the game were altered to provide better game play.

It has been said that different rounds of the Arena would provide different special rules along with different prize categories. This will allow hobos to compete in many different prize categories using various techniques and game locations.

But what really sets the remake of Arena apart is that hobos don't create an account on HoboArena. Instead they use their pre-existing accounts on HoboWars, HoboWars2, or Facebook HoboWars to battle in the Arena rounds. Prizes are rewarded to these main versions, allowing for more unique prizes.

Round 1

The opening round of the new Arena had a few minor adjustments made mid-round. These included the removal, or adjustment of certain foods and other items that were deemed to be too powerful in the initial days of the round. In addition, this round marked the introduction of 2 new game locations; the Raffle Room and the Boxing Stadium.

The round began on June 4th, 2013 and lasted for 90 days.
