I firmly declined any and all friendly matches, but it was decided upon in the team that each market can have ONE friendly match if they so wish to do so.
Since there was insufficient time to host friendly matches before the event started, again, it was decided upon that these friendlys will be run simultaneously along with official matches.
Unfortunately, these were not my decisions but they are what they are at this point.
If your market wishes to host a friendly battle against another market. Have your team leader send in a support ticket.
