To begin a match, each of the participating players must have access to at least one character, which can be purchased from the ETH Fighter Store.
You need to select your character by highlighting the portrait of the fighter you wish to use, and then pressing the start button or enter key to confirm your choice.
The game itself is broken up into three rounds. The method of winning is to have a majority victory - managing to win 2 out of the 3 rounds.
All characters will start with full health, and will fight until the health of one fighter is reduced to 0. Once this has happened, the character is considered knocked out, and the round is lost. When the time limit for the round is reached, the victory is awarded to the player with the most health.
