Teams consist of multiple players grouped under the same name. With a team you can sign up for Tournaments with a team game.
Create a team
You can create a team by either clicking a visible Create a team button anywhere on the website. This button is also located at your Profile editing page. Look for a field called My teams.
To create a team you must input the following information to the form:
Add yourself as a player or not
Adding yourself as a player,
If you consider yourself a manager instead of a player, you can choose to create a team and add players to it, rather than participate as a player yourself. This means that you will hold the ownership of this team and you are able to manage it's players, and sign the team up for tournaments but you are not counted as one of it's players.
The owner, or captain of the team is the only one with the rights to do the following:
- Sign the team up for tournaments
- Cancel sign ups
- Insert, invite and remove players
- Enter results for matches
- Start a conflict
Later on the captain will also be the one handling map-vetos and communications with the opposing team, using the platform.
As of version 1.08 teams can now have managers as well. Managers have the same permissions as a captain but they are not counted as a player unless they are marked as a Captain aswell.
As of version 1.08 teams can now also add in substitutes. Substitutes are not counted in the player count when teams are checking in on a tournament.
If you want a player to be counted, remove the Substitute flag.
Select an active team
To select an active team with which you can sign up for tournaments, you must either click a visible Flag icon inside your user menu (sidebar), or by entering your team's profile page and clicking a visible Select as active button anywhere on the page.
You must be logged in and the captain of the team to execute this action
There are a two types of
members a team can have:
- Real members
- Virtual members
The distinct difference here is that a
Real member is a Xerberus user,
who has a user account and a profile. This member has been invited into
the team via an invite and his information comes from his user profile
which he himself controls.
virtual member does not have a user account and is solely controlled by
the captain of the team. You are able to create a virtual member by clicking
a visible Add member button inside the Team edit page.
Virtual membersare supposed to reflect
real membersfor members who do not wish to register as a Xerberus user.
When you create a
virtual member you must enter the player's name, nickname
game account id and country information. If you do not enter this information
the team might be flagged for not having enough players to participate in team
