With our one click installer the XStrat client will install within seconds. Updates will be done automatically as well!

There will very likely be this windows error claiming the application not being safe as it isn't signed with a Microsoft certificate. To continue the installation just click on "more info" and then select "run anyways"

If the XStrat Software Installer does not work or the Software cannot start. You might need to install the dot net runtime from the link below. If the issue still persists please contact us!


After running the installer you can open the XStrat app. Click the register button to create a new account.

Fill in you username, email and password and confirm your email and then log into the app

For discord notifications you need to have a webhook setup in one of your discord channels. Paste your webhook URL into the dedicated settings field in order to receive calendar notifications to your channel

You can enable the following notifications:
- New event notification - this notifies you on creation of an event
- Event time changed - this will notify you when time of an event changes
- Starting soon - this will notify you n minutes before an upcoming event
- Weekly summary - this will send you a summary for the upcoming week every Monday morning
- Starting soon time - this determines when the starting soon notification will be sent

By default your team uses on-days instead of off days. This means that your players have to define times where they are available and the scrim finder will be able to pick the best time where enough players have the time to play.

Join a team

Open the "team info" tab in order to join a team.
Fill in your team id and password - you will get these information from your team admin.

You might need to click the refresh buttons, switch tabs or restart XStrat if the information does not update correctly after joining.

The first thing you should fill in are the off / on days. You can find them under the availability tab.

You can also set them to several modes: - exactly - this is exactly how you entered it
- entire day - this ranges from 00:00 to 23:59
- weekly - this event will reoccur weekly
- every second week - this will reoccur every second week
- monthly - this will reoccur every month
- daily - this will reoccur every day
