Versus: Battle of the Gladiator Gameplay
There are several skill types in Versus. I have categorized them with their power and look, and assigned them points so that killing with more powerful skill or performing a special finisher move would let players score the highest point possible.
Chaining combo is a very important skill player must master in Versus. It isn't necessary (or even possible) for heavier weapons such as greatswords or warhammers, but for smaller weapons, the combo is an important part of the attack.
The longer your combo is, the higher players get bonus score. Score bonus is based on the final blow score, so players still have to use the right skill.
Heavier weapons would have less combo score bonuses, because their combo chain is shorter and they deal higher damage, killing their opponents faster. But they are better at killing multiple players at once, in multiple v. multiple situations, compared to smaller weapons.
