Frequently Asked Questions
Which players receive the special battle invite?
Everyone that is part of the team receives a special battle invite in-game. From that point on, the team captain decides who is worthy of playing in the match.
How do I know which side I start on?
You simply look in the title of the special battle. Left is Defender, Right is Attacker. It is also mentioned in the description of the special battle!
What happens if I don't have 7 players?
Unfortunately, you will lose each round where you don't have 7 players lined-up and ready for battle.
What happens if I don't press ready in time?
Your team will lose the round. However, if the opponent team also missed the chance to press ready, the match will be set as an Exception and the admin will decide whether to restart the match or disqualify both teams.
ESL match page says that I have match at 19:50 but I already received invites. Why?
The Battle API will send invites as soon as you have an opponent. It doesn't wait for the match time! So be sure to stick around to see when you have an opponent.
