Your team needs to gather and defend resources that they can use to build a craft, that will help them escape the island and win the match. The opposing team is controlled by AI. A match can take between 1-6 hours depending on the requirements to win the match. (Set by the host) The resources on the island however are limited, with the most rare pieces to be found in the middle of the island in between the opposing teams. You and your team will need to find the right balance between using resources to build protection for your camp and using resources for the craft.
