Arc System Works also shared more information about the game’s online lobbies:

In the online lobbies of Guilty Gear Xrd: Rev 2, while maintaining things such as “Cross-Platform Battles” and “Ranked Match Standby” that were well-received in the previous game, you can now select “Lobby,” “Ranked Match,” and “Player Match” from the main menu screen. Additionally, since the support feature for finding an opponent with the same skill level is also prepared, even beginners can compete.

Three-Wins Cabinets

Standard lobby battles are a single match, but at the “Special” cabinets in the center of the lobby, you can fight until one player wins three games.

Simple Chats

Pressing the Triangle button in the lobby will display fixed sentences. By selecting these options, your avatar will display various emotions, such as bowing, while speaking. In this way, you can easily enjoy communicating even without a keyboard.

Network Colors

The colored arrow displayed next to a player’s online ID is a rough estimate of their strength. Players with an up arrow are stronger than yourself, while players with a down arrow are weaker.

Beginner Lobby Restricted Admission

Lobbies with a yellow / green down arrow marker do not admit strong players in order to allow beginners to play online with peace of mind.

Treasure Chests

By opening treasure chests placed in the lobby, just like fishing, you can acquire various content to enjoy the game even more. Treasure boxes can be found once a day.
