Matchmaking / Streamer Queue for Twitch Streamers




1. Create a Custom Lobby

  1. Launch MultiVersus and create a Custom Game

  2. Go to Settings

  3. Go to the Muxy GameLink tab and click on the “Configure” button

  4. On the Configuration page, click “Create Lobby”

Clicking this button will create a custom lobby that your viewers can join via the extension. The Create Lobby button should now display “Leave Lobby”. When you click “Leave Lobby” everyone will be booted from the Lobby.


2. Invite players in your lobby queue to join the game

Viewers who have joined your lobby queue will appear on the Twitch Configuration page. Click the “Invite” button to Invite them to your match. The viewer will receive an invitation to join the match in their game.


Viewers can only join your match if they have their Twitch ID shared, their WB Games account linked to Twitch, and the MultiVersus game installed and launched on Twitch


Viewers can join the Streamer Queue through the MultiVersus Extension to queue up to join your games.


3. Return to the game and start your match!

When you return to the game, you’ll see the Invited viewers who have joined your match.


Playing Continuous Matches


After you’ve completed your 1v1, 2v2, or FFA match with viewers, you have a few options:

  1. Play again for a Best of Three Matches set

  2. Remove the current viewers and add new viewers to your custom lobby

  3. Close the custom lobby and close the viewer queue

When you add viewers to a match from the Twitch configuration page, they will remain in your custom game lobby until they leave or you remove them. If you want to change who you are fighting against, you can do so by removing the current viewer from your lobby, then inviting a new viewer from your Twitch configuration page. While you are playing against viewers, you should keep the custom lobby open to invite and play against them. If you are done playing against viewers, you can close the lobby in your Twitch configuration page which will boot all viewers from the queue. You can keep your custom lobby open and play against friends or other contacts in MultiVersus after the Twitch configuration lobby is closed.
