Brawl 2v2: Each team of two players needs to kill both enemy Heroes to win a round. Skill, knowledge, cooperation, and the ability to use the setting to its best advantage are the essential components.
1v1 duels promotes the face-to-face confrontation of two Heroes in a fight to the death. Player skill is essential in a Duel, of course, but just like in Brawl, players have the ability to use the stage and make the most of it.

extermination: In this 4v4 mode, the last surviving player on the battlefield wins the round for their team.
