In Strife®, you will assume control of a powerful hero. Each hero is uniquely designed to embody a play-style or idea, and heroes are by far the most important aspect of any game of Strife. As a hero, you will decide how the game flows, how quickly it progresses, and whether the outcome is favourable for your team. All Strife heroes are freely available from your very first match!
The main vein of Strife’s influence is reducing player toxicity, with methods that make support roles more clear and simple. A gold share system that eliminates the race-to-last-hit makes playing as the help a little more self-explanatory and easy, while elements such as health regeneration reduce the likelihood of rage quitters and propose a Strategy that is unique to the genre.
Players are also given the option of collecting pets that evolve, which have their own list of abilities, and simultaneously grant passive buffs for their hero. This alongside a crafting system that exists strictly outside of the arena gives the player a few game play options other than just continually jumping into battles.
