Whether attacking or defending, each fight takes place on a different map called outposts. Most maps contain obstacles, such as walls, rivers, ponds and cliffs, that cannot be moved through. Every map has either three or five crystals, which are captured by moving a squad onto them. Matches are won by owning the majority of these crystals when time runs out.
