Players will be ranked according to their achievements in the game. Those who thrive at the lower rank will have to fight the better ones with the disadvantage of few resources. The game?s twist came after Kirito and his company realized they are treading on the same situation as they did two years ago, when they played a different game, giving them a sense of deja vu.
