I. HEROES

Each team starts the game with a [[ProtectCrystal]] which summons (and resurrects) your team's [[Hero]]es. If you lose your crystal, you lose the game.

II. DEPLOYMENT

The first 2 minutes of each game is the build phase. Heroes have the ability to ((Build)) whatever [[Blueprint]]s your team has on hand. Some buildings automatically ((Produce)) creeps, as long as you have enough [[Joules]]. Teams starts the game with only 1200 joules, which can be recouped by worker units with [[Skill]]s such as ((Chop)), ((Harvest)), ((Mine)) or ((Hunt)).

III. GEM SUPPLY

Each team starts the game with 12 [[Blue]] gems which can be stolen from opponents. The other colored gems are obtained by creating buildings that increase supply: [[Black]], [[Red]], or [[Green]].

IV. LEVEL UP YOUR HERO

[[Hero]]es gains xp when nearby enemies die. Each level up grants an additional skill point which can be invested into any skill available to your hero. The available heroes are: ((Meteorologist)), ((Ranger)), ((AssaultMech)), ((CyberSamurai)), ((Engineer)), ((Chameleon)) and ((Komodo)).

IV. HOW TO WIN

The object of the game is to destroy your opponent's crystal and protect your own. Create buildings that unleash hordes of creeps fast, or play more defensively and outlevel your opponent. Allied creeps cannot be controlled directly, but nearby heroes can lead them by toggling the CTRL key. Defensive structures like towers are crucial for covering blind spots and protecting from flying units. Experiment with different build configurations to understand what works best with your play style.

In general, 50% of games are won by real-time tactics, and the other 50% won by strategic base deployment during the initial build phase.
