Quick Guide

This is where it all begins. Whether it is the beginning of your esports career, a new casual pastime, or a source for passive income. Its time to take your first steps and get you ready to En Garde!

Joining a Match

Believe it or not, it takes less than 20 seconds to join a match! The core of En Garde is an advanced matchmaking algorithm that pairs users to each other based on what they are looking for when it comes to competing in a match. On the “Join” tab, select any of the games that are available. The first question of every match is a selection of how much you are willing to put up for the match.

Once you’ve selected an amount, proceed with answering the remaining questions. Some games will ask if you’re interested in selecting a Host role for your match. By doing so, you will be considered a higher priority for the game queue and will generally be matched faster than users that do not select the Host role. Although you benefit by being matched faster as a Host, you will have the responsibility of managing the match itself and making sure that you adhere to all of the guidelines set forth. On the last step before joining the match queue for a game, you will have to check off and agree to each of the match conditions.

Lobby

Once you’ve joined a game queue, you’ll notice the “Join” tab is now the “Lobby.” The loader at the top with the time duration displays the amount of time that has passed since you’ve entered the lobby portal. To enter the lobby, input the Twitch URL that you will be streaming from. Please join the lobby within 5 minutes to avoid getting removed and penalized! If you do not join the lobby within 5 minutes, you will be charged a non-refundable 25% abandoning fee that is based on your entry fee.

(i.e. If you paid $5 to queue, and you do not join the En Garde lobby within 5 minutes of being matched, En Garde will charge you $1.25). This is one of the conditions that every user agrees upon before queuing for a match.

Teams

The Teams tab located at the bottom of the navigation bar allows you to manage and create teams that you would like to queue with. You can also interact and message other users on En Garde by tapping on the messaging icon on the top right corner of the screen. We currently do not support group messaging.

Know someone that you’d like to join to En Garde? Tap the “Invite Friends” button located on the top left corner of the screen. Bring them on board and earn a free $5 game when they complete their first game! They will receive an invitation email once you’ve submitted their email.

Team sizes are unique to which game you are creating the team for. For example, En Garde does not support teams for Street Fighter since it is expected to compete 1 on 1. Every team has a Team Leader. If you are the Team Leader for a team, you will be asked to assign a new Team Leader before leaving.
