A crew battle is a competition between two matched crews (with at least 3 active members each). Players from both teams receive a scorecard that provides challenges to earn points for their teams.
All members of both participating crews are eligible to earn points towards the battle during the 24-hour period. However, if one crew is larger than the other, only the top players from the larger crew up to the active number in the smaller crew will count towards the score.
Battles are winner-take-all, with 50% of the bet pool going to the winning crew bank and 45% going to the players based on their individual scores.
There are two ways to participate in a battle: challenge or be challenged. Either way, you must first check the “Battles” option in your crew settings. Then, you may get semi-randomly matched with another crew that is looking to battle.
Alternatively, you can go to the “BATTLE” tab and click to the “CHALLENGE” button to specify what bet level your crew is interested in. Once at least 50% of the crew votes to accept the challenge, the system will try to match you with a similar crew. Once a match is found, you will both have 24-hours to prepare before the 24-hour battle begins.
Each player gets a scorecard during the battle, which you can access by clicking the green flag in the top left of the screen. This provides them with a variety of personal, team and bonus challenges. Each time you complete a personal challenge, your score will be updated if you beat your previous high score at that challenge. You can then unlock bonus challenges by completing each personal challenge once.
The team challenges require a group effort to complete. Each team has the same challenges and they must be completed in order to unlock the next one. There are 5 team challenges per battle, and completing each one gives a 5% boost to the overall team score.
You can watch the live results of all active battles by going to the “BATTLES” tab of the “All Crews” window. You can also see the live stats and per-player scores of your own battle by going to the “BATTLE” tab of your crew's window.
When you aren't in an active battle, the “BATTLE” tab displays a list of past battles and wars. Clicking on these gives you an overview of the outcome of the battle with point breakdowns per member.
