How to get the most out of Battlefinder
This system is designed to get people playing games, period. Whether at a local game store, at home, or a coffee shop, we enjoy playing games. Battlefinder is a platform that helps connect people that enjoy similar games.
This site is probably different from what most people have seen, but is easily utilized once the basic systems are understood.
Here are the functions that a "user" can interact with;
Forums "of course". Please follow the rules, though!
This allows people to connect with each other based on specific games. There are two systems that you may notice to the left of this post. The first system "Store Events" are exactly that. These are events that a store account has posted that take place inside a brick and mortar store OR at an official event. The second system "Pickup Games" are for users to seek games with other local users. To do this, simply click Events, create pick up game, and fill out the form to post that you are seeking a game.
Please refrain from abusing this system, as spamming will result in suspension of your account.
This allows players who want to keep in touch to utilize the basics of social networking. To add a Battlefinder user to your friends list there are a few easy steps. The first way is through the forum. If you want to add a forum user as a friend, simply click their username in a post and in the bottom of their information card click "add friend". The next option is a search function. Click "account" in the top right of the screen. Select "edit friends", and in the correct box add their username, or real name and click "add". Once they accept your friend request you will be able to view their recent forum posts and chat via instant messaging. More features will be added for friends in the near future!
This is a barter / trade system for users to use openly. The rules are similar to other barter websites. If you spam the barter forums, you will be suspended. Repeat offenders are banned. Do not use this area for advertisement or any store promotions etc. Be sure to read the rules before posting!
To use the Market system, simply click "market" at the top of the site, hover over "buy / sell / trade" and select the game.
This system is fully functional, but currently lacking content. This is intended to show how games work by order of manufacturer. If you are the owner of a game, or have a great video or written guide with images for a game system please don't hesitate to send it to us. After a quick review the guide will be posted for all to see!
This is pretty self explanatory. Here you can edit everything pertaining to your account. If you click "account" and then "edit", you can view all the possible changes you can make for your Battlefinder account. If you travel or would like to see events at any location in the United States, simply add additional zip codes within your account, separated by a single space between zip codes.
