Welcome to the PvP Arena!
Climb the Arena ranks and gain trophies to win great rewards, including Arena Battle Essence and Hero Fragments. Battle Essence can be spent in the “Social” section of the Shop, while Hero Fragments will be added to your champion’s total balance.
To partake in Arena battles, you must have Arena Energy. Like regular blue Energy, Arena Energy recharges over time. Once you begin expending them in the Arena, you will receive one Arena Energy per hour until your balance is filled up.
If you’re eager to continue your battles in the Arena, you can purchase additional Arena Energy with Gemstones in the Shop. If luck is on your side, then you may find Arena Energy using the Void Scanner with the help of Hal Jordan’s ring!
Each Arena battle costs 1 Arena Energy. If you wish to refresh your list of opponents and take on different challengers, tap the “Refresh List” button in the bottom-left corner. Refreshing your list of opponents costs 1 Arena Energy.
Reading for the PvP Arena
When you select the opponent that you wish to battle, you will be taken to a screen where you can prepare for the fight. Here, you can select the heroes you wish to use in battle, as well as review the possible rewards for emerging victorious!
You will be able to select up to 4 heroes to compose your team. Additionally, you can compose up to 6 different team sets. To do this, simply tap the number of the set you wish to use on the left side of the screen, and then select the heroes you wish to use in that set. You can swap heroes in any set at any point on this screen, before jumping in to battle.
If a hero’s icon has a blue icon in a round, golden frame on it, then you will receive points towards your current Alliance Mission for using that hero!
Interested in seeing who has fought you? Tap the “Battle Log” tab to view all of your previous opponents. If you lost a battle, then you can spend 1 Arena Energy to exact revenge on your opponent!
Note that after have defeated an opponent, the team you used in the fight becomes a potential opponent for other players in the Arena. Other players will be able to fight your team in the Arena at any time, even if you are not currently playing the game.
Trophies are necessary for increasing your rank in the Arena and moving into higher leagues. As you win battles, you will acquire trophies. Conversely, if you suffer defeat in a battle, then you will lose trophies.
You can view your total amount of trophies at the top of your screen, to the left of your Essence Gem balance. You can also view what League you are currently in based on your trophy amount by tapping on the “League Rewards” tab.
Trophies are rewarded based on your final score in battle. Scores are determined using a 3-star system. If you finish a battle with 3-stars, you will win the maximum amount of trophies for that fight! The amount of trophies you can acquire for winning for any given battle will be displayed on the Opponents tab, nestled in between your opponents total Power and the amount of Battle Essences rewarded for a victorious fight.
For most battles where your team suffers defeat, you will lose 2-3 trophies. If you exact Revenge on a player that previously defeated your team (via the Battle Log) and emerge victorious, then you will gain back the trophies you previously lost to that player. If your team suffers defeat during a Revenge battle, then you will not lose any additional trophies.
The PvP Arena resets every Monday at 10PM UTC (+5) at which time rewards are distributed via in-game mail. When the Arena resets, the current tournament ends and a new tournament begins.
When the Arena “rolls over” every Monday, your trophy count will reset based on the league you finished the previous tournament in. Trophies reset as follows:
- If you finish the previous tournament placed anywhere in between the Champion II and World's Finest leagues, then your trophies will reset to 1500
- If you are between Super Hero II and Champion I, your trophies will reset to 1200
- If you are between Sidekick and Super Hero I, your trophies will reset to 900
Looking to earn more Battle Essences for those better Arena packs? As you move your way up the ladder and place in to higher leagues, you will win more Battle Essences per round!
A Bonus Reward is provided for clearing your list of Opponents! For every 10 battles that you are victorious, you will receive 5 fragments for the specified champion. You can view your progress towards the Bonus Reward at the bottom of the Opponents screen.
