With the release of the 0.21.0 update, the beta test for User Battle mode will begin.
User Battle is a customizable mode that allows parameters to be changed before the start of combat: you decide the composition of the teams, the preferred mode, and the map.
The main purpose of this new mechanic is to provide players with a comfortable way of conducting various competitive events.
At the initial stage of testing, we want to focus on players who wish to organize a tournament or any similar activity. So the ability to create User Battles will be provided to a limited number of players.
All players can — and are welcome to — participate in User Battles.
After testing and finetuning the new functions, we plan to extend the range of players able to create User Battles.
During the beta test period, access to the creation of User Battles is given out to Caliber partners participating in the referral programs, and to those players who wish to organize a tournament or any similar competitive event.

No. You can leave the battle freely.
Application feedback is issued within seven working days from the day of submission.
The entire fireteam gets taken to the battle preparation screen. If one of your team members creates their own battle, they will immediately leave the fireteam.
Right now, our main priority is to root out any possible bugs and decide how to improve the new functionality.
Nevertheless, Spectator Mode, which allows players to watch the battles as they unfold, is already in the works.
Each User Battle increases our servers’ workload. Thus, moving forward, access to the creation of User Battles will be paid.
Participation in such battles will always remain free.
