  • The team holding the altar receives a 10% damage boost.
  • When the timer hits zero, the team with the most points wins. In cases of a tie, the team that scored the last kill wins the match. If no teams have scored a kill, there is no winner.

  • When players enter the Hall of Heroes, the win condition and match objectives are randomly decided from four options. These four options are described below.

Kill Count
    Every time a team kills an opposing player, that team is awarded one point.

  • Teams resurrect at their shrine every minute, along with their Ghostly Hero. The team holding the altar resurrects upon the altar every minute, along with their Ghostly Hero.
  • When time runs out, the team with the most points wins. In cases of a tie, the team that scored the last kill wins the match. If no teams have scored a kill, the defender wins.

Murder Ball
  • Three relics are spawned, one for each team, at equal distances from the altar.
  • Players bring their relic to the central altar to score a point.
  • A relic returns to its start point if an opposing team member picks it up.
  • Teams resurrect at their shrine every minute.
  • When time runs out, the team with the most points wins. In cases of a tie, the tying team that last captured a relic is awarded the win. If no relics have been captured, the defending team wins.

Capture Points
  • There are 4 capture points on the map: one on the altar and one at each team's resurrection shrine.
