Battle Arena

(Battle Arena is the same thing as League Arena, but does not affect you league rank.)

Battle mode is Robocraft stepping into its MOBA shoes, hence this is one of two game modes where respawning and overclocking are active. Several objectives are unique to this game mode, such as overclocking, and capturing fusion towers. A team wins when the enemy's protonium reactor is depleted. This is accomplished when all attached Protonium Crystals are destroyed. This is the only game mode where players can earn a ranked placement in the league system. Currently, games can last anywhere from 5 to 20+ minutes depending on the CPU and skill level of the teams. However, the fusion shields that protect the protonium reactor are disabled after 20 minutes. Due to the greater number of mechanics at play, many more strategies are available and teamwork is even more crucial for this gamemode.

BG

Stands for Bad Game. Typed in after someone plays a poor game, most commonly said after games of "Seal Clubbing"
