- In the “Lobby” you will be able to create Private and Public contests. Public contests will appear in the Lobby for anyone to join. Private contests are invite-only and can be sent to anyone in your Friends List or you can send the invite to one of your Groups.
- In the lower right you will find the Messenger tab. To add friends, click the person icon with the + symbol. You search for your friends by username on the screen that pops up. It will also show you some of the recent players you have competed with so you can easily send a friend request to them too.
- The buddy icon with the three people within the Messenger tab will allow you to create Groups. You can add anyone from your Friends List to a group and assign permission to each, such as who can create contests for the group.
***In order to create a Group, you have to have added people to your Friends List. If you do not have a list of Friends, you will not be able to create a Group or Private Contest***
- Click Private Contest to begin the contest creation wizard. Here you will go through a few screens where you choose who/how you will send the invite, naming the contest, assigning the cost of entry and how many players will be competing together.
You will be given a summary at the end and clicking “Create” will send the email invitations to everyone invited. They will also see the invited contest on their Dashboard.
If you chose to have the contest start at a specific time and date, and all needed entry spots have been filled, everyone will receive a notification 1 hour prior to the Draft starting where you can go in and build your queue. If you choose to have the draft begin when filled, you will receive the same notification when it does. The Draft will begin in 3 minutes from that point.
