With your hero and skills selected, you can jump into different game modes and begin battling enemies in order to level up and progress in your journey. The following are the five battle modes you can choose from
- Death Match
In a Death Match, you join or create a team of four and battle against another team of four. The match lasts for 3 minutes, and your only aim is to kill as many opponents as many times as possible. The team with the most kills wins the match. This is a classic team battle.
- Super Star
In this mode, you and your team need to capture and own the 'Superstar' in the game before the opponents do to win. The mode hosts a "mother" Superstar that continuously produces Point Stars, which you and your team can collect to accumulate points. The winner is the team with the most points at the end of the game or the team that collects more than 50 points than their opponent at a given moment. You play in teams of two, with four members in each team, and the game lasts for 4 minutes.
- Tower Siege
This mode is similar to traditional MOBA games where teams fight each other and try to bring down the opponent's tower to win. This mode hosts two teams of 4 players each and lasts 5 minutes. You and your team have to collect items called 'Battery' to summon a 'Siege Robot' needed to bring down the rival's tower. If both towers are standing at the end of the match, the team whose tower has the most health wins.
- Battle Royale
This epic mode can be played solo or as a duo (with a partner). In this mode, 12 players join the battleground and battle it out for a maximum of 4 minutes. The last man standing wins. Once the game starts, after a short time, a ring appears and slowly starts closing in. Players outside the ring are automatically eliminated.
- Custom Battle
In this mode, you can create and host your own battle and invite your friends to play. The game's host can choose from many game modes, maps, and other in-game features. The number of players is customizable, and match time depends on the mode chosen.
At the end of each match, all NFT heroes get $THC rewards depending on the match results and the hero's rarity and skin.
