The Bless Online Certanon Arena is described as a small scale PvP battle that pits two teams of three against one another in a best of five match. You access the new mode through the War UI in the System menu.
In order to participate in the Bless Online Certanon Arena, players must be at least ranked at Level 45. Each round of the bout is 10 minutes of length with a best of five series extending for up to as long as 50 minutes. As the mode is a best of five series, the first team to secure 3 rounds wins. Or, should one of the teams be entirely eliminated, the opposing side would then secure victory.
