How Colosseum Multiplayer Game Modes Work - United Combat, Combat Ordeal, Duel
The level of customization for multiplayer battles in the Colosseums is fairly limited at the moment, but you can still choose between three main game modes: United Combat, Combat Ordeal, and Duel. The United Combat mode allows you to play alongside allies with either 4 or 6 total combatants. The Combat Ordeal game mode is more of a free for all, where every player is hostile. You can still temporarily form alliances in this game mode if you wish, which can be particularly useful if you want to overthrow a skilled player… but you will need to get lucky with spontaneous coordination with other players for this. It’s much easier to play in United Combat if you prefer that kind of thing. The Duel mode is simple: it’s a 1 vs 1 situation.
In the United Combat and Combat Ordeal game modes you will have 300 seconds to kill the opposing players as many times as possible. After each death you will respawn, and the team or player with the most kills at the end of the match wins. In the Duel game mode, you will have 180 seconds to defeat the opposing player, and there are no respawns. There are also additional rules for each game mode in terms of flask usage, all of which are shown in the table below.
|United Combat||4 or 6||All four or six players are divided into two teams, each team has 300 seconds to score the most kills, Flasks of Crimson and Cerulean Tears are permitted, but limited in number. Spirt Ashes are prohibited unless enabled by the host.|
|Combat Ordeal||4 or 6||All four or six players are enemies and have 300 seconds to compete for the highest number of kills. Flasks of Crimson and Cerulean Tears are permitted, but limited in number. Spirt Ashes are prohibited unless enabled by the host.|
|Duel||2||Players fight one on one for 180 seconds until a player is defeated. Flask of Crimson or Cerulean Tears are permitted. Spirt Ashes are prohibited unless enabled by the host.|
