More Pool

The aim is to get more Pool on the System in 2021.

I would like to get some sort of the following pools

  • Ladder/TMM Pool
  • Custom Pool for Specific Tournament (Rule will apply but still TBD)

FAFLive Account

Using the FAFLive account for Tournament will be decided By FTX as he will have the Login Credentials for the account along with me.

Using the FAFLive Account you can see this Video to run through how to use it.

Video - Coming Soon

Using the System Without FAFLive Account

To use this new Tool, we have now you do not need to have access to the FAFLive Account to make the most of it, the account is there for Convenience due how the Plus account works.

To Start creating your pool you need to head on over to https://www.mapban.gg/en on the front page you should see FAF.
