AREA can be accessed in the main console UI in the main screen (under the radar) or on the left hand side of the screen if you have AREA energy points to fight, it would say Areana battles enabled.
The AREA is where all players can battle each other to be number one. and as an areana there are rewards, there is the player placement reward and reward for winning a battle. The placement/player ranking reward is given from first place, top 10, top 30, top 100?, and so on and so forth.
This is a great way to increase your financial resources and tech resources as you get tech and cubits from winning a battle, and ranking rewards give players prestige and cubits.
