■ Battle System

Roman Cancel

—A New Rating System Pits You Against Players of the Same Skill Level!

Guilty Gear: Strive‘s Online Lobby assigns you to a floor depending on your skill level. Skill level is determined not only by the outcome of battle, but also by the analysis of your actions during matches. And because players at the same skill level naturally gather on the same floor, everyone from new players to veterans can enjoy tense battles!

Guilty Gear: Strive

—The Floor at the Top of the Lobby Reserved for Only the Most Skilled Players

Only players who continue to achieve good results can enter the “Heaven” floor at the top of the Online Lobby. The entrance to this floor is an extremely narrow gate. It is quite literally the top of the top.

—Use “Quick Start” to Quickly Jump into Online Battles

Guilty Gear: Strive features a “Quick Start” function that allows players to move directly from the menu screen to battle standby. Jump into an online match immediately!

Guilty Gear: Strive

Player Match

Up to nine players can enter a “Player Match” room, allowing players to enjoy online battles with specific friends.
