PVP and Pve
Astellia has what is called "Avalon", this is a place specially designed for PVP. Avalon is a permanent PVP card, where three fractions compete for control over resources, monsters and other values. Each Avalon campaign lasts a week and is intended for both large -scale battles and for small teams that can contribute and play a significant role in the war.
