There are four game modes so far in TEC. They are all variations on a straight-up team-vs.-team match. Click the headers below to be taken to the page for that game mode.
Two players enter with armies. One player rises to the top. If no suitable human opponent is ready then an AI opponent may be faced. Victory is by capture or by destruction.
Two teams of two players each square off. One team wins. Victory can be by either capture or destruction but is usually through destruction.
1v1 vs. an AI trainer. No artifacts are earned by the player in this mode.
Special Missions are essentially 1v1 matches versus an AI, though the odds are frequently stacked against the player. Rewards and challenges are much higher.
