Types of Fights

There are two diffirent types of Games.:

  • Duel: two or more gladiators fight. This games are not to the death, nor gladiators use their HP. They use Gladiator Helath Points(GHP), so even if they are killed, they re-appear in one of the respawn cells in the colisseum. This system is activated my an electronic system, which is placed on the entrance of the sands of the arena.
    • In ALO the system implemented is the same.
  • Execution: a prisoner is sentenced to an execution due multiple crimes, or severe crimes commited. If the gladiator/s is defeated by the prisoner, this player is generally allowed to live. If the prisoner is about to be killed, he can use the Missio. A player performing Missio would raise either hand with their middle and index fingers together and the remainder of their fingers clenched.It serves as both an acknowledgement of defeat and a plea for mercy. In this type of games, the audience serves as judges, and their opinion is generally taken into account by the editor of the games.
    • In ALO, players are executed after fighting against The Supreme Legion. But they are not also killed in real life, rather killed, and removed from the Great Aincrad War.

There are different grades of battles the most important, being the primus, the final battle whre two player of importance face each other. The chapions are generaly placed on this category, while the others are placed in the lower matches.
