Your ultimate goal in this game is to be recognized by your fellow gladiators. This Ultimate Goal will not happen in a few days. You will have to work hard, fight, win, train, join alliances, create your own alliance and sometimes, you will have to do dirty jobs.
On a daily basis, you want to get your gladiator stronger, you want to win daily arenas and you want to fight in duels.
If number 1 is your goal, be warned that the road is a long one. We have experienced players that have been there since 2001. They will not let you have their spot. However, it is not as unfair as it sounds. Every gladiator is matched with similar strength gladiators. Your initial goal should be to go up 1 position at a time.
You are rank by experience points. The more experience you have, the higher you will be in the rank. The players are also split into groups: Newbies, Apprentices, Journeymen, Adventurers, Explorers, Challengers, Killers, Masters and Legends.
