Hi Sir,

Can someone please explain Me the Rules of GROUNDCOMBAT " Arena" and Assault" ?

What's the main difference between these 2 ? Any confirmed Strategies that work ?

Thanks in advance for your answers !

In any PvP queue, the goal is always to just kill the other team until one side loses...

# 4 PVP Ground Arena vs Assault

OK - so there is a difference.

Arena - yes just kill
Assault - there is a kill component, however there is also a virus component, uploading the virus (available at the computer where you first beam in) to the Defense Post (in the alley) or the Opposing team's Main Frame (where they beam in) nets 3 and 7 equivalent kills respectively. In a well coordinated, and strong team you can win by successfully running the virus, even if it's only to the defense post. However, most often it's just KILL KILL KILL.

Any "honor" stuff you hear people claim "its how its done" is just QQ fluff
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.
