- Casual, the default setting, is prefered for players who are only starting to learn the game, or for people who wish to relax and play the game in a less serious enviroment.
- Ranked, unlike casual, uses a rating system to match players of similar skill, providing for a fair and challenging matchup.
In this mode, players play against AI to sharpen their skills and learn more about the lore, or to challenge themselves against "bosses"
