The most important thing to remember when playing against live opponents is that they are probably taking a dump right now. You're basically hanging out with a stranger while he (or she) is wrecking a toilet somewhere in the world. To play a PvP match, simply tap the "BATTLE" button in the main screen or enter a battle at Butters' House.

How do I win in PvP?
You kick the other New Kid's ass. You can do that by:
  • Completely draining the health of the Enemy New Kid.
  • Having more full health sections than Enemy New Kid.
  • If both players have an equal number of full health sections by the end of the match, it goes into overtime, which lasts for one minute.
  • In overtime, the first player to drain the opponent's New Kid's health section will win. If no one manages to do that in one minute, the game will end in a draw.
Winning a PvP match gets you a shot at the PvP loot screen. You can open three lockers just like in Single Player Mode, even though the rewards in them will be slightly different.

You earn Skill Rating for each win in PVP. Earn enough Skill Rating, and you will advance to the next Arena that has more cool cards to unlock and better loot rewards. At first you can never lose Skill Rating, but at higher Arenas you lose Skill Rating if you lose a match!

Legendary Arenas and Seasons
Arenas from #11 to #16 are Legendary Arenas. Once you move into them, you are eligible for Season Rewards. Earn Skill Rating during a month-long season to unlock a reward pack that you will claim at the end of the Season. Reward is based on the highest Skill Rating you have achieved during the Season.

How does matchmaking work?
The game will always try to match you with an opponent of the same Skill Rating as you. If it can't do so within a reasonable time, it will try to find someone little higher or lower than you. The system is built so that most of the time, you play against people that are close to you in terms of game progress, level and skill, although occasionally you can meet weaker or stronger opponents.

What are those PvP packs?
The game will give you free packs of cards for your performance in PVP. Each pack requires a specific number of phones destroyed in PVP to be claimed. All the opponent’s phones you have destroyed in PVP count towards your next PVP pack, regardless whether you win or lose.

Why do I have to wait for the next PvP pack?
Because there are many other great things to do. Go for a walk. Talk to your friends. Watch a South Park episode. Or play some of the single-player content of "Phone Destroyer".
