Players will react to a message in the private channel prior to each game and when prompted, accept a friend request from a Yunite bot. Once the bot is in the party players need to make it leader at which point it will enter the key for the private game before leaving the party.

Once the bot has left, players need to confirm have the correct game mode selected and the party size is set to Solos, before selecting start game. Once they have completed these steps they will be put into the private lobby and await the round start.
