Ranked Game

Ranked Games are the “ladder”. A notable design about CryptoKnights is that Knights are matched based on their Levels and the power of their items, instead of PvP ranking scores like in other games.

The winning Knight earns XP and can level up; the losing Knight loses XP and can go down in level!

If a player wins with an On-Chain Knight (NFT Knight), they will earn RUBY as reward. This is one of the “Play & Earn” aspect of the game.

Normal Game

Normal Games use the same matchmaking system as Ranked Games but players don’t win or lose XP or RUBY.

This gamemode is for fun or trying out new strategies.

Story Mode

Player fights bots in different scenarios and earn rewards.

Can be seen as a tutorial, although some players may find Story Mode more enjoyable.
