How does the 1 vs. 1 fight system work?

The more and better weapons you have equipped the higher your Attack and Defence rating are. The system calculates the matchup between your attack vs your opponents defence, and your opponents attack vs your defence. The system then compares this matchup and decides how much damage should be done to each fighter. There is also a random element to every fight based on external factors. In brief the key to win consistently is to equip a lot of high value weapons, get more slots to equip them using Diamonds, upgrade your MAX health using Diamonds, and make sure your health is always 100%.
