This page will serve as a basic how to play guide for Eternal Return.
First, you'll see the Main Menu. In the lobby, you can view your collection of Characters, skins and emotes, create, modify or import saved plans,
browse the item catalog, Play the tutorial scenarios, head to the store, or check your stats and rank under the info tab.
Clicking Start Game allows you to choose either a Normal/Ranked Matchmade game against other players, a solo game against bots or a custom game.
There is also a tracker for your current currencies, A-Coin and NP, at the top.
Once you get into a match, you can level up one of your skills.
By default, your skills will be assigned to the Q,W,E, and R keys. Each have different effects and they often work well paired with each other.
Your R skill is known as your Ultimate. It is often the strongest ability you have, but will have a long cooldown time, so you must use it only when the time is right.
