If you don't already have a GameBattles account, you'll need to make one to start your team and upload your GameBattles logo. You can use different image programs like Microsoft Paint or Adobe Photoshop to make your photo. To keep things simple, we'll be using Microsoft Paint since most computers have this software.

For both the horizontal and vertical text boxes, enter 300 as the value. GameBattles logos must measure 300 by 300 pixels. If you try to upload a GameBattles logo that's a different size, your logo will be distorted.
Select your background colour by first clicking the "Fill With Color" tool found in the top left-hand corner under "Tools." This tool looks like a paint can. After selecting the paint can, left-click one of the colours found on the top-right of your screen. Left-click the white canvas to make that your background colour.
Insert a text box by clicking the "Text" tool under "Tools" near the top left-hand corner of your screen. This tool looks like a black capital A.
Left-click the canvas. Type your team name or initials for your team in the text box.
Select a shape to use under "Shapes" and drag the shape on the canvas so it surrounds your text box. Using a circle is a popular option.
Click "Brushes" and select which type of brush you want to use. Left-click the colour you want to use for painting near the top-right hand corner of your screen. Left-click, hold and drag the mouse button on your logo to paint the logo and make cool shapes and designs.

First you'll need to select which game you want to make a team for on which console. On the top toolbar, select the console on which you want to play.
On the right-hand side of the screen, scroll through the list and select which game you want to play. For this example, we'll be using Halo Reach.
Click the yellow "Create a Team" button on the right-hand side of the screen.

Type in your team name, custom URL and Xbox Live Gamertag.
