Digimon Battle Server (デジモンバトルサーバー, Dejimon Batoru Sābā) is a video game.
Digimon Battle Server was originally called Digimon Online in Korea (디지몬 온라인) and run by X2Online.
The game had a free open beta starting from Juli 25, 2002. In January 10th 2003 version 1.5 of the beta was released. Japanese website for the game was opened on February 6th 2003 renaming the Japanese release as "Digimon Battle Server" and referred to the Korean beta version as "undergoing favorable evaluation!". In May 19th 2004 beta version 2.0 was announced . However the game was shutdown few months after due to copyright infringement, terminating the Japanese version of the game before it even had a beta-version of itself.
Battle Server is a multiplayer online game. Players could join Rooms of up to eight people until the battle would begin. There are several maps based on various locations in Digimon. Once the turn-based battle begins, each player is given a certain distance they can move across the map (depending on their character) and a time limit in which to use cards and/or attack. Attacking is done by aiming and charging an attack; attacks can do damage to both enemies and the landscape itself.
A player is out of the fight once their HP reaches zero or they are knocked from the playing field. During the round, cards with various upgrade and abilities drop from the sky. Evolution for a short time period is also possible depending on how much experience a Player has accumulated using each character.
