    As soon as your team is created your teammates can join the team. To do so you have to send them the link to the team. Once on the teamsheet:

    • Click on to join the team.
    • Enter the join password.
    If the password was correct the player is in the team.

    9. Contact opponent

    The first place to try contacting your opponent is in-game through Wargame. Go to the match page, click on your opponent and show under member the Wargame names.

    • Writing a comment on the match page
    • Chatting with the match chat (matches at the bottom right and click your match)
    • Cup Chat

    Keep trying for at least 20 minutes to contact your opponent via all methods before reporting to an admin in Cup Chat!

    10. Play your match

    Once you are in contact with your opponent then you can play your match. One of you creates a custom game and invites the other.

    Please make sure the match is hosted with the right settings, read the rules to make sure, later complains are not accepted.

    11. Result
    Take a screenshot of the result screen and upload it after the match.

    Go to "matches" ->match setup ->enter the result, in map wins, e.g. 1:0, then the other team can confirm the result.

    Either team uploads the screenshot(s) of the match at the match page -> "Upload screenshots"

    If you have any problems, go to Cup Chat to get the attention of an admin.

    On one line write, "admin: your problem, link to match"
    e.g. "admin: my opponent has not confirmed http://www.esl.eu/eu/wab/go4wargame/cup13/match/123/" Screenshots are always needed as proof, if you have problems. e.g. A team tells you they can't play in the ingame chat.
