Game Modes

There are four playable modes in GUNDAM EVOLUTION--the three types of matches and a practice mode.

■ Ranked Match

A mode where your rating, which reflects your skill, is affected by match results and determines your rank.
The goal for each season (about 2 months long) is to aim for higher ranks. Requirements must be met in order to play.  

■ Casual Match

Enjoy GUNDAM EVOLUTION without affecting your rating. Anyone can join these matches.

■ Custom Match

A player can create a room and customize the players and map.
There must be at least one player on each team to play.  

■ Practice

Learn basic controls and unit abilities in a practice range for solo play.

Season 1 Ranked Matches

■Rating and Rank

  In Ranked Matches, Rating, which reflects a player's ability, fluctuates according to match results and determines your Rank.

  There are seven ranks from Bronze to Newtype, and there are subdivisions within ranks (Ⅰ-Ⅳ) known as tiers.

Anyone who reaches Master Rank will only show their rating, and the top 600 players will achieve the Newtype rank.


■ Ranked Rewards & Season Reset

At the start of a new season, players will receive rewards and titles based on the previous season's final rank and tier.

Ranks are reset for new seasons, and players will restart from a rank based on the previous season's results.

■ Ranked Match Requirements

To join a ranked match, one of the following must be met.

  • Player Level 20 has been reached.
  • A Season Pass has been upgraded to a Premium Pass during the running season.

To celebrate the start of Season 1, a Bonus EXP event will be held for all matchmaking games.

Official Launch Celebration

Event Period:During Season 1 Sortie

There will be an in-game event to commemorate the service going live.

EXP points gained after casual and ranked matches are doubled, making it easier to boost player levels.
Ranked Matches can be joined once a player reaches Player Level 20, so take this opportunity to get there fast.  


Season Pass

■ What is a Season Pass?

All players in GUNDAM EVOLUTION will have a Season Pass corresponding to the season.
By completing requirements such as playing matches and completing challenges, you can increase your Season Pass Level by gaining enough Season Pass EXP. Rewards will be given based on your level.  

A Season Pass may be upgraded to a Premium Pass by using EVO Coins. Extra rewards are offered for levels achieved with a Premium Pass.
