HOW DO BATTLES WORK?
The goal is beat the opponent by reducing their Portal health points to 0. Before entering the battle, players get to create and select a deck of Minions and Spells that they’ll use in battle.
Each player starts the battle with 4 random Minions from their deck and 2 equipped Spells from the selected Hero. Players tap or drag Minions and Spells to cast them on lanes and outplay opponent’s Minions in order to reach enemy’s Portal and destroy it.
Equipped Spells have their own slots and a predetermined cooldown timer. After playing them, they automatically go on cooldown. Each Minion costs a predetermined amount of mana to cast. Cards are drawn randomly and automatically from your deck. As the battle escalates and you reach 8 mana, you start drawing 2 cards instead of 1. On the left side, you can see your mana. Mana regenerates over time automatically and with each card draw, the mana cap increases by 1, up to a maximum of 12 mana. Mana regeneration is fixed and identical for both players. If your hand is empty at one point, you will have the option to draw a card instantly at the cost of 5 mana. On the other hand, if your hand is full with 5 Minions, there will be no room in your hand for additional cards. Any additional cards drawn will be destroyed until you make room in your hand for them. If your hand is full, you can drag a card from your hand into the garbage to destroy it to make room for a new card or you can cast a card to create space for new ones.
HOW DOES OVERTIME WORK?
If one of the Portals is not destroyed within 4 minutes, overtime starts. During overtime, both Portals loose a bit of health every second until a champion is crowned.
HOW LONG DOES AN AVERAGE GAME LAST?
Approximately 2 minutes.
CAN I FORFEIT A BATTLE?
Once the players are matched a battle cannot be stopped. You can only forfeit a practice battle.

HOW DO MINIONS BEHAVE IN BATTLE?
You can for the most part only spawn Minions on your side of the battlefield. Certain Minions can be spawned anywhere. You can choose the lane you want to spawn the Minion and it will stay in that lane. Minions always attack the enemy Minions first prior to the Portals. The lane needs to be clear before the Minions can attack the portal, except when the minion has area damage and is at the end of the lane and can hit both the Minion and Portals simultaneously. Also, some Minions have special abilities that can bypass other Minions and strike directly at their Portals.
WHAT ARE SPELLS?
Spells are unique powers that each Hero possesses. After choosing a Hero for your deck, you can equip two out of five spells. They have their own slots in battle.

WHAT IS MANA?
Mana is the magical energy used during battle to cast Minions. Each minion you play costs a predetermined amount of mana. Mana is automatically replenished over time.
