==The Serenisphere== (The Challenge area)
|The Challenge Arena provides a God's'eye view of all the islands (i.e., gamers) in the Serenisphere. Players in the Challenge Arena are represented by a small floating island, as well as by their name in a list on the left side of the screen.|
Challenge Arena Interface
NetStorm allows users to effortlessly match themselves with other eager players, using a graphical user interface.
Each player's island is indicated by Name and the Level (and Rank) of the island.
An island's level is a measure of the owner's (i.e. gamer's) Knowledge. As you acquire more knowledge (by sacrificing Priests), your level will increase. This allows gamers to choose battles with gamers who are similarly-skilled, and have access to a similar range of Battle units.
Once a player has attained Knowledge of all of the units in NetStorm, the next Sacrifice will revert the island back to Level 1, but the player's Rank will now increase by one. Each increase in Rank gives a 25% increase to both Hits and Damage of battle units.
|This rating shows 'number of games completed' vs. 'number of games
started.' Check these numbers to see whether this player is going to abandon a game in progress. To see a player's Reliability Rating, right-click on their island. To keep your own numbers high stick around until your Priest is Sacrificed, even if you are sure to lose. Fight until the end!
Battle Rings and Zones
Note: Remember other players can see your level printed clearly on your island. So unless you have made arrangements with a friend, Do not expect novices to allow you to play in their Zone: players have the right to kick off other players. Again, each Battle Ring has eight 'points,' or holes, on its perimeter. You may either initiate or join a battle by left' clicking on one of these points. (If you are the first person to attach to a ring, you will become the BattleMaster; If you are not the first person you will simply join the battle.)
