Leveling up & Drafting Champions
Starting at level 1 with a maximum at level 9, each level allows you to place one additional champion on the board and gain access to better champions as you progress. You gain 2 experience (XP) per round played and can spend 4 gold in exchange for 4 XP. Deciding whether or not to spend your gold on XP is dependent on what your overall strategy for the initial set of champions you drafted early in the game.
Identifying a suitable champion lineup, given that the champions you can purchase with gold is entirely random, can make it difficult for players to stick to one strategy and is advantageous to those that can improvise. Each champion will have a unique origin and class for a total of 13 origins and 10 classes. Drafting a lineup that has similar origin and class traits will give the matching champions a corresponding enhancements which can be utilised to increase your chances of winning a head-to-head battle in the following round.
