Players can now host their own competitions
Friendly Competitions allow players to create and host their own custom competitions. Players can create their own Friendly Competitions at this PGL page. Players can either host Online Competitions or Live Competitions. Once created, a Friendly Competition cannot be deleted or cancelled.
Online Competitions will not be held unless they reach at least 20 entrants. Players cannot create a new Online Competition until after the ranking of the previous Online Competition they created is made public. Players can only create one Live Competitions per day.

- Battle Format (Single Battles or Double Battles)
