Friendly Matches

Friendly Match

Friendly Matches let you invite up to 9 other friends, depending on the match type. All the rules of Friendly Matches are the same as the ones in Standard and Quick Battles.

The same problem persists in Quick Matches for Friendly match lobbies in that you are still limited to playing on the map that is currently in rotation.

Play With Bots

Friendly Matches also allow players to add bots as allies and enemies. You can be more dynamic on how you want the teams to be. For example, you could have 3 players and 2 bots on each team, making it a 5v5 match consisting of 3 people and 2 bots.
