The Story


Several years had passed since the Gaia and the Messiah signed a treaty to cease fire... Tokyo was peaceful on the surface, but neither side had lost the desire to conquer the other in the future. As the tension mounds and the fear spreads, the extremists were anxious to start yet another war. One day, a mysterious man approached both sides with a proposition.

"I can provide you with a place where you can unleash your anger and frustration..."

Nobody knew what he was trying to accomplish by encouraging them to battle each other. But one thing was certain - the peaceful era was about to end. Face your density and investigate this new movement, Devil Busters!

Gondo

"Gondo" is the mastermind who established FATE and VALHALLA as well as the illegal gambling syndicate. His business has been very lucrative as he controls the entire VERSUS operations using Yaginuma. By day, he works for the government as "Secretary Gondo". However, only a handful of those in power are aware of his true identity.

After a certain event, you may learn the truth and attempt to stop him...

Yaginuma

When the VERSUS operation began, a mysterious woman only known as "Yaginuma" started to appear in every town. Appointed by "Gonzo", she is currently in charge of the VERSUS operations. Her mannerism and her horns may remind you of someone else...

We are not sure what Gonzo and Yaginuma are, just yet.

How to Participate in VERSUS

First-time participation:

  • Talk with any Yaginuma; "Ask about VERSUS" to start the Quest: Yaginuma's Letter. They are located next to any Home Point in every cities.

    • Register in FATE.
    • Regardless of winning or losing in FATE, VERSUS is available to you.

    • If a Player cancelled their entry, timer will stop and reset when the requirement is met again.
  • Click "Ready" when Timer reaches 0. If you wait or click "Forfeit", this will count as a Penalty.


Forming Teams


There are 2 teams in VERSUS; Azure and Scarlet. Players are split according to their Alignment regardless of Levels, but there are times when they are more LAW Players than CHAOS and vice-versa when they will be forced to join the other team.

Law Players will join Azure
Chaos Players will join Scarlet
Neutral Players will join either side

You can form a team before joining. Regardless of the players alignment, they will be able to join. This only applies to Valhalla.

VERSUS - Fate


vs_fate_01.png pvp_start_font_01.png

Fate is based on capture-the-flag type battle 15 versus 15 players (or more). The battlefield is in a private area away from the Commune in Fujimi Midgard Battleground. The objective is to occupy strategic locations. Pillars are scattered across the map in 5 locations with each different number (1 , 3 , 5 , 7, 10). Points will be rewarded to the whole team for every 30 seconds continuously as long the occupation is captured on your side and will gain bonus points over time. Points can be awarded faster by capturing the Pillars with the most white bars next to it. 3 being the fastest and 1 the slowest. (Bonus points increase in the order of 15 → 30 → 45 → 60 → 75)
• You can only view the white bar next to the poles via map only.
• 10 will always will be in the center with 1 white bar.
Teamwork is key while someone defends the important Pillar and the rest captures the rest. The team with the most points win when 13 minutes expires.
• During battle, if Shot (including Destruction Magic) and Rapid user are on the high ground, Dodge skills is invalid for the lower ground.

Accident!/ Surprise Event!

At some point during Fate, a message will appear in your chat box an event occurred. These events are triggered randomly whenever someone captures a Pillar. These events cannot be avoided and will grant that "surprise". The "surprise" lasts until it expires or the player is dead.

Accident!
