The arena for the mode

Multiplayer is a mode in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes which the player gets to play against other players in real-time. The player gets to choose between the plant's or the zombie's side, where the player will fight a plant or zombie hero, depending on which side they chose, similar to regular missions. It is unlocked after beating the game's tutorial. This mode requires internet connection to be accessed.

Gameplay

Upon entering, the player is presented with a menu to play two modes: Casual and Ranked matches.

In Casual Mode, there is no penalty for losses, but there is no winning prize other than Tickets. This game mode is more suitable to test new decks that the player isn't sure about their utility, or to learn new battling skills.

In Ranked Matches, there is a leveling system that determines the skills of the player. Winning rewards the player with Stars, while losing takes some depending on the league. Ranked mode also features seasons, which last for several months and will reward the player with prizes depending on their final standings.

The player is free to choose which hero to play as, and which deck to use, as there is no obligation. However, depending on which side their hero belongs to, the player will be matched up against another player on the other side.

Before the battle, each player gets to shuffle their first four cards. Once both players have confirmed their given cards, each player will be given a free superpower to start with, after which the battle starts. There will always be a lane for heights at the far left, and a lane for water at the far right. The setting of the battle area is randomized between the available areas, including the playing field, where plants and zombies are seen in the background watching the game.

A timer is added, which is placed under the cursor showing the phases of the battle. If a player takes too long to respond, the game will end with that player conceding automatically.

If a player concedes or disconnects from the game (via internet disconnection, leaving the app, or answering a phone/FaceTime call for too long), their opponent will win the game in advance.

Strategy

Main article: Plants vs. Zombies Heroes/Community-Built Decks

Since in this mode there will be real-life opponents, some that will likely have more cards in their collections than you. In early ranks, simply try to win since losing will not punish you. However, when you face tougher opponents, you will have to deal with stronger cards, so be aware. Do not use weak decks on higher levels, since you will likely lose and lose multiple stars. If you don't want to lose stars, or you're not sure about the deck you are using, try Casual mode. Since each season will end with a pack, try to rank as high as you can.

It is recommended to have a great Wi-Fi, since it is possible to suddenly disconnect and lose the round. If needed, you may have to test your Wi-Fi or use cellular data.

Trivia

  • As of the worldwide release, Multiplayer battles can also pick a theme that appears in plant and zombie missions.
  • As of the 1.12.16 update, the player can also see their opponent name in the battle.
  • The game attempts to use match files in attempt to ensure that both are the same to prevent cheating. Should a player try to cheat in a way that the file doesn't match the opponent in some way, the game will create the "There is a problem with your game" message and makes the opponent win.
  • If the player closes the app after a Ranked Battle loss, but before the lose their stars, they will lose their star (or stars if they did it repeatedly) when they complete another battle. If they win that battle, they will not earn any stars, and instead, lose them.
