Free to play and fair to win, the game ensures that success on the battlefield is determined by players’ tactics and prowess rather than their spending.

This philosophy extends to its matchmaking system, which pairs competitors based on skill level, ranking, and lane preferences to maintain balanced and challenging matches.
