If the Operator has finished setting the number of Participants for the matches, it’s time to set match rules.

Arena of Arsha can hold two types of matches: Team Match and Team Survival.

Team Match goes in battle rounds between two teams, and Team Survival is a battle royale where various teams can fight altogether to declare one winning team.

 

  • Common Rule

 - Any buffs from items (food, elixir, furniture) will be nullified inside Arena of Arsha and such items cannot be used in the first place. In addition Black Spirit’s Rage will be set to 0.

 - Buffs from characters’ skills will be applied normally.

 - Both normal potions and arena-specific potions can be used.

 - When a match ends in a draw, the team with higher total HP wins.

   The team with the most HP combined will be declared the winner.

 

  • Team Match

 - Two teams battle each other.

 - The team that defeats every Participant of the opposing team wins 1 round.

 - Defeated Participants cannot be revived until the end of the round.

 - The team who wins all the number of rounds set by the Operator will win the entire match.

 - Participants will be teleported to the starting area in the opposing sides of the arena at the start of the round. 

 - At the end of every round, all Participants will be revived and teleported back to the starting area.

 - Once all the rounds are completed, match results will show up declare the winner.

  • Team Survival

 - Multiple teams fight altogether. (Max 30 teams)

 - The last surviving team at the end of the intense battle wins.

 - A surviving team must have at least 1 Participant remaining.

 - It’s a single-round match where defeated Participants cannot be revived till the end.

 - Victory conditions can be set by the Operator.

  i.e. If victory conditions are set to ‘2 Teams Surviving,’ the battle royale will last until there are 2 teams remaining.

  The surviving 2 teams will both be declared winners.

 

Operating Match

The matches can finally begin once team assignment and match settings have been completely set.

Click ‘Start Match’ to see a pop-up message notifying you that 30 seconds of preparation time has been before the start of the match.

For Team Matches, relevant Participants will be teleported to the starting area at the opposing sides of the arena when the Operator clicks ‘Start Match.’

You can buy arena-specific potions and repair your equipment from the NPCs located in this starting area.

For Team Survivals, relevant Participants can move around freely without being teleported to the starting area as this is a battle with multiple teams participating.

It’s crucial that the Participants of Team Survivals prep for battle before the match starts through the NPCs available in the starting areas.

 

▲ Once the team matches begin, Participants are teleported to the starting areas. 

 

▲ Arena of Arsha Guards Kate Aron and Pior will repair your equipment and sell potions.

 

Once 30 seconds of prep time ends after the Operator has clicked ‘Start Match’ button, affiliated team (i.e. Team A, Team B) will show up on top of the character. 

Once the match begins, affiliated team title will be shown on top of the character, and current team scores and remaining time will be shown on the top-center of the screen.

Participating characters in the Team Matches will have their HP shown on the left-hand side, and once the winner is decided according to the rules set by the Operator, another 30 seconds will be given before the start of the next round.

Team scores and remaining time will be shown on the top-center of the screen.

Operator can even stop the match in progress.

If there’s a defeated Participant at this moment, the operator can click ‘Revive All’ button to revive such fallen Participants.

 

▲ Operator can stop the match in progress forcefully by clicking ‘Pause.’ 

 

In this case, any defeated Participants can be revived by the Operator by clicking ‘Revive All.’

Once the match begins, Operator/Suboperator/Invitee can press ‘F5’ to go into ‘Spectator Mode.’

Spectator mode allows you to watch the match from the perspective of the Participants.

You can switch to other Participants’ perspective by continuously pressing ‘F5.’

Press ‘F6’ to release spectator mode and return to your own character’s perspective.  

Your character can have his/her back to the walls, sit on rails by pressing ‘Q’

and press ‘R’ to spectate the fabulous matches.

from various angles and perspectives without much territorial limitations.
