COURT BATTLES

With Court Battles, players will have a chance to go up against players in the online community. In these battles, you will have to play these matches in custom courts with custom rules as you attempt to take over these courts to get some great rewards. Similarly, you will have to defend your own court as well.

In Court Battles, attack and defend phases are split into Campaigns and you will have a limited time to try and take over as many courts as possible,  while also trying to defend your own. You will be able to reach a higher reward tier with a Campaign if you manage to capture a greater number of courts. Apart from the rewards, your Court Hype will also increased based on how you perform in this mode. Court Hype is basically a ranking  for this mode, and you will start off as a Rookie and can work your way up to ICON.

The first thing you will have to focus on is setting up your defenses on your custom court. Other players will be playing your AI squad, so you will have to be strategic about this. You will have to choose your court’s Game Rules from 38 different rulesets that are currently available. You will start with  only a few rulesets to choose from but you will gain access to more rulesets as your Court Hype increases. Following this, you will have to select your Defensive lineup and you will already start off with a few players. You will also be able to use players recruited from Streets World Tour in Court Battles. You will also gain new players as your Court Hype goes up. Additionally, you will get new players by achieving controlled court tiers in the Campaign of a Court Battle. Finally, you will also be able to get new players from various Live Events that are held in the game. You should pick your Defensive Lineup based on the particular Game Rules you have chosen for your court.

You will now have to choose an Attacker’s handicap. You will be able to unlock more Attacker Handicaps as your Court Hype level increases. You will have to use a Handicap that will be balanced as per your Defensive Lineup and Game Rules so that you gain an advantage. Make sure you experiment with different combinations before you settle on one.

The next course of action is setting your Game Plan which will determine the unique behavior of your AI team. There are lots of combinations to try out, so make sure you try different ones to find what suits you best. Before you begin, a match, you will also be able to see an opponent’s combinations so that know what exactly you’re going up against. If anyone has attempted to take over your court,  challenge them and enter a battle to take your court back. When you’re going to attack a court, you will be able to choose your Attacking Lineup and also the difficulty. Playing on harder settings grants more Reward Points and Court Hype. In fact, playing on Easy won’t allow you to take over the court.

You will gain greater Reward Points and Court Hype if the opponent’s combinations are of a higher tier than yours. If you take over an opponent’s court, they have three chances to try and reclaim the court. Your reward tier will go up based on the number of courts you have under your control during the Campaign. At the end of the campaign, all of the court go back to their owners, and players will receive  rewards based on their Reward Tiers. Before you go in to take control of an opponent’s court, take note of their state which will indicate whether they can be attacked immediately, or whether their court is under the control of yet another player, or something  else. If the player is available to be challenged, then you can immediately begin a Court Battle and try to take control of that player’s  court.
