Blade and Soul PVP is a fast-paced competition between teams of three. Players have one of nine character classes available to them, each with their own unique playstyle. There are no auto-target player abilities, so a high degree of skill is needed to pull off the deadly combos that can quickly burst down opponents or lightning quick reflexes to escape and out-sustain enemies. 1v1 fights are straightforward affairs – two players enter, one player leaves. The 3v3 fights bring an entirely new level of complexity to the system as only one player is active at a time, but with a limited number of assists and tag-outs, a high degree of skill, strategy and communication is needed to outlast and outwit opponents.
