2. What happens in a BC battle?

A battle in BC has 2 steps.

Step 1: Battle Decision

A battle troop in BC consists of 8 characters and 8 support cards. When you meet an opponent in battle (in Ladder, Arena or Campaigns), the system will randomly draw 4 of the 8 characters from the deck for combat.

These are the active characters for this battle. The remaining 4 characters will not be used. You can drag the characters cards around to position them for battle and place a support card to each character within the time limit (2.00 minute). The system will randomly assign cards for battle once the time limit is up or if you click on auto-assign.


Step 2: Battlefield

Battle takes place on a Battlefield. A battlefield consists of the placements that was done in the battle decision step

To elaborate further on what happen in the battlefield, here is a quick summary of the Battle Sequence.

Rounds

  • A battle consists of several rounds.
  • Each round consists of a preparation phase and several match-ups.

Preparation phases

  • Ongoing effects are usually checked and activated at this phase

Match-up Characters take their turn using abilities and making attacks during a match-up. In each matchup there are 3 phases whereby different set of abilities are activated:

  • Main – activation of pre-combat abilities such as shock, drainbolt and etc.
  • Attack – characters launch physical attack.
  • End – activation of post-combat abilities such as regen, poison and etc.

3. How do you win the game?

You win if you managed to reduce your opponent’s morale to zero or if your characters annihilate the opponent’s deck. In situations whereby characters from both sides are killed off at the same time, the winning conditions are determined first by the players’ remaining morale and then followed by remaining energy.

5. What does ‘clan’ prefix on an ability means?

Abilities with the ‘clan’ prefix (i.e. Clan: Dodge) requires an ally of the same faction to be in play for it to activate. For example, if you draw Zulfique (Qabal faction) with ‘Clan: Dodge’ ability during play decision, then you will need to have another Qabal in your draw in order to trigger Zulfique’s dodge ability in battle. Otherwise, the ability will be cancelled off during battle.

7. Why am I only meeting the NPCs/bots in battles? Can I meet other players?

Or, if you want to battle for fun without affecting your rating, you can opt to send DUELS to other players. Just go to player list under DUEL and you can start sending challenges to other players.

  • Rating will not be calculated if you meet the same player more than three times a day (according to server time).
  • Rating degrades by one point daily (but it is capped at 1500 point).
  • You will need to play at least one game per day to keep your Rating active. If you are one of our top ten players, please note that your rating will not be displayed on the leaderboard if you did not log in and play (at least one game) within two days.
