A Helpful Guide For Creating Your First Custom Match

    Hi everyone,

    Earlier this week we announced the open beta test for custom matches. This is something that many people have been waiting for a long time, and we’re sure a ton of you are eager to try out creating your own games!

    With so many options and settings to play around with, some of you will probably feel a bit lost when setting up your first ever custom match. For that reason, we’ve created the user guide below to help explain how it all works.

    As mentioned above, this is an open beta test, so keep in mind that there may be various changes made to the system over time. We’ll likely tweak things to reflect your feedback. Other changes in consideration of server or game stability may come as well (such as limitations on total number of sessions, or conditions for creating custom matches).

    For now, let’s get into the details!

    Table of Contents
    • Create Custom Match
      • Normal Mode
      • Zombie Mode
      • War Mode
      • Esports Mode
    Create Match – Normal Mode
    [​IMG]
    1. Name your custom match and set it to either public or private.
    2. Select a game mode (normal is the standard “battle royale” experience).
    3. Select a preset—more of these will be made available over time.
    4. These are default settings which are necessary to create any custom match.
    5. The game will be created on the regional server location selected on the lobby screen.
    Note: Currently a minimum of 10 players are required before being able to start the match.

    Once the lobby is created, you can then access the following settings via the “Match Setting” button.

    Normal Mode - Basic Settings
    [​IMG]
    1. You can change your custom match name here.
    2. Choose whether your session will be public or private (with a password).

    4. Set the current game mode preset (not implemented yet, but will be updated in the future).
    5. Select the map.
    6. Select the perspective you want your match to be played in.
    7. Set the max player limit for your match. 10 players are required before the match can start.

    2. Adjust the amount of time required to revive downed players.
    3. This controls how quickly downed players bleed out.
    4. Adjust damage inflicted by friendly fire. Make it a lot... or not a lot!
    5. This sets how quickly the blue zone will move during each phase. Leave this at 1x if you want to change the speed of each phase individually.
    6. Set the delay for when the next safe zone will appear.
    7. This setting controls the time until the blue zone starts moving once the next circle has been shown.
    8. Adjust how fast the blue zone moves during each phase .
    9. Set how much damage the blue zone deals.
    10. This number controls how small each safe zone will be compared to the previous safe zone. (0.1 will make it 10% the size of the previous safe zone).
    11. The number indicates the likelihood of the next safe zone appearing closer to the center of the current circle (10 creates the next safe zone right in the center). For the first phase, setting this to 10 will make the safe zone appear in the center of the map.
    12. Adjust the probability of the center of the next safe zone being on land (e.g. 0.1 for 10%, 0.5 for 50%)
    [​IMG]
    1. This indicates the total round time.
    2. Choose whether to display the location of the final safe zone (only works if the “END CIRCLE LOCATION FIX RATIO” is set to somewhere between 1% and 100%

    3. Adjust how long each redzone will last.
    4. Set the size of each redzone.
    5. Adjust how many bombs fall in each redzone (a higher number means more boom).
    6. Set the spawn rate for care packages (set to 0 to turn them off entirely).
    7. Allow special care packages to be called using flareguns.
    8. Adjust the number of items contained in the care packages called using flareguns

    3. Remaining available air drops will be rolled over into the next phase.

    5. Toggle killer spectating on or off.
    Normal Mode - Spawn Settings
    [​IMG]
    1. Adjust item spawn ratio and the total spawn amount of all items. There’s three overarching options here which we can explain quickly:
      1. “Fixed Ratio & Adjustable Total Number” means that when you adjust the multiplier for any given item, it only affects the spawn rate of that item.
      2. “Adjustable Ratio & Fixed Total Number” means that the overall number of items spawned will be the same no matter what. So when you adjust the multiplier for any given item, it affects how often it spawns relative to other items.
      3. “Adjustable Ratio & Adjustable Total Number” allows you to adjust the overall spawn rate for all items while also adjusting the relative spawn rate of items within that pool.
    2. Adjust spawn rates for specific items. For each item category (like “Ammunitions” or “Weapons”) you can also adjust the overall spawn rate for that type of item. Setting “Ammunitions” to 0 means that no ammunition of any type will spawn.
