- Unranked game: A normal game that will be hold to gain some experience and have some fun.
- Ranked game: These game stats will be saved and included in the player ranking. The player can fight in different competitions and leagues. The difference to a normal game is the equipment exchange. Each player of the winner team will get (the weakest) one equipment from every mech of the loser team. This exchange guarantee item exchange between the community and gives a huge motivation to not lose the game.
- Arena game: Will be the same as the ranked game. Instead of removing one equipment on loose, the whole mech will be lost on loose (permadeath).
