Mechanics[edit]

Two teams enter the court for a timed match. The rules are similar to basketball: Close-up shots are worth 2 points, Faraway shots are worth 3 points. During the match players will be able to use brawling skills to either grab the ball or keep the other team from stealing the ball. The team with most points at the end of a match will win the game.
