World Arena Splash
The World Arena, Real-Time Arena, or RTA for short, is a special real-time variant of regular Arena where players from level 35 to level 50 (MAX level) are matched up with players from other servers, taking battles to a global scale. Much of the same rules from regular Arena apply, with each player battling with a team of four select monsters, with the first to wipe out the opposing team being declared the winner.

However, there are some variations to the rules. Duplicate monsters cannot be chosen, nor can players choose the same monsters as their opponent. Both teams will take turns selecting at team of five monsters, with each player having the opportunity to ban one opposing monster to bring each team down to four monsters.

Like regular arena, players are awarded Victory Points upon victory, and deducted points upon a loss. Accumulated Victory Points will determine each player's ranking. Special rewards separate from regular arena will be handed out based on ranking and grade achieved before the end of each season (lasting approximately three months). Players will also be give Medals for each victory, which can be cashed in at the World Arena Shop.

Before its official launch with the start of the Season 1, three "Real-time Arena Match / Live Arena" Test Services occured (See Patches).

GameplayEdit

Team selectionEdit

RTA team select

Players take turns selecting their team.

Battles take place in the form of four on four monster battles. At the beginning of each battle, each player will each get a chance to form their team. Players will alternate between one another in their team selections based on the following order:
  1. The player picking first will get the opportunity to choose one monster to be on their team.
  2. The player picking second will get to choose two monsters to be on their team.
  3. The player who picked first will now choose two more monsters.
  4. The player picking second will now choose two monsters.
  5. The player picking first will now choose two monsters.
  6. Finally, the player picking second will choose one more monster, marking this as the last selection of the round.

Once each player has their team of five, both will alternate and pick one opposing monster to ban from competing in the upcoming battle. Once this is done, both players will select a Leader Skill. Each player will have 30 seconds to decide their selections/ban, with a timer displaying the remaining time. If players let their timer reach zero, the AI will decide their turn automatically, and they will have half the time to decide their next selection. The timer will continue to halve in this way until a minimum of three seconds.

The team selection process is bound by several unique rules. Players may not choose duplicate monsters on their team. Additionally, players may not choose the same monster as their opponent. This means that the player picking first could potentially have an advantage during the teams selection process, as their opponent cannot choose any monsters that were already chosen.

BattlingEdit

Once team selections have taken place. battles will progress in much the same way as regular arena battles. Whoever defeats all opposing monsters first wins the match. Unlike regular Arena, battles are real-time, with players alternating between turns, with turn priority based on total speed of each monster. Since battles are in real-time, each player will have a turn timer dictating how much time they have to decide their turn, with both players possessing 15 seconds. If the turn timer ever reaches zero, the AI will decide the player's turn, and will have approximately half the time to decide their next turn. The timer will continue to halve in this way until a minimum of three seconds, after which the timer will reset back to 15 seconds.

As the battle progresses, special effects will be placed on all monster. After 20 turns have taken place, all monsters will gain 10% more attack power, and lose 10% of their maximum HP. The same effect will apply every 15 turns thereafter, with the effects stacking over time.

Additionally, uniquely only to the World Arena, Violent runes can only trigger an additional turn once per turn.

MatchmakingEdit

RTA placement

Players will be assigned a grade after 10 placement matches

At the beginning of each season, each player will be required to participate in 10 placement matches against random players. The match record accrued over these 10 placement matches will determine the player's initial ranking and grade heading into official matches. Players thereafter will be matched with other players in the same grade. Medals will still be awarded for victories accrued in the placement round.

Additionally, players will also be matched up according to their most recent winning percentage. That means that players on a winning streak will be matched up similarly, and vice versa for players on a losing streak.

Victory PointsEdit

Victory Points will be awarded for every victory, and lost for every defeat. The amount of Victory Points gained and lost will depend on difference in player ranking and accumulated Victory Points. Winning against a player with much more Victory Points will result in a greater gain, while losing against an opponent with lower Victory Points will result in a greater point deduction, and vice versa. Victory Points will be reset once the season ends.

Victory Points will be deducted every day if you have no record of playing the [Ranking Battle] for more than a week since your last [Ranking Battle] in the World Arena.

  • 5pts starting the 8th day since you haven't played the Ranking Battle
  • 10pts starting the 15th day since you haven't played the Ranking Battle

Please note that your Victory Points won't be deducted anymore once you play the [Ranking Battle] again and this rule will only apply to the users that possess above 1,000 Victory Points.


Seasonal resetEdit

After the end of every season of World Arena, all players will have their Victory Points reset, based on their Grade during the previous season. This will determine initial matchmaking during placement matches, which will determine each player's official starting grade.

Grade Victory Point
Beginner 1,000
Challenger ★ 1,000
Challenger ★★ 1,000
Challenger ★★★ 1,000
Fighter ★ 1,100

In addition, once a season has ended, players may not participate in any ranking battles with other players until the official opening of the next season (Goodwill battles are excluded).

GradeEdit

Player grade is determined based on a minimum set of Victory Points and meeting the minimum cutoff in overall ranking.

RewardsEdit

Each Victory will award Medals, based on the player's current Grade. These Medals can be used to purchase items in the World Arena Shop, including Mystical Scrolls and other Elemental Scrolls.

Players will also receive seasonal rewards, consisting of rare items that can't be obtained anywhere else. The transmogrifications in particular can't be obtained through either the Transmogrification Building with Shapeshifting Stones, or the through in-app purchase. Seasonal rewards are based on each player's end-of-season ranking and grade, with more items awarded the higher a player ranks. Each season offers a different set of rewards.

In addition to the decorative building "Statue - Legend of the Arena", players that achieved Legend rank at the end of the Season will have their name added to the World Arena's Hall of Fame.
