  2. Hey everyone, In the time since launch we have been hard at work on running the tournaments, as well as some minor tournament system improvements (e.g. GSL-style group stages now support byes), but let's talk about the new stuff instead! Achievements & Leveling As part of the latest Invision update (this is the suite the site uses), we are now able to create a profile leveling and achievement system. Our take on this is to have this feel like a game's progression system - most common actions will be giving you XP and increase your progress towards achievements. Each profile level and achievement tier will come with a unique badge created by @PF2K that will be featured in your profile and on the front page like so: Here is a preview of the badges you can unlock (tournament ones are a preview, these are coming in the future). You can expand the spoiler below to reveal the precise details regarding the unlock criteria and XP values. Showmatch Store In addition to tournaments, we also will have a showmatch offering from now on. These will be commission options that you can purchase in our store. 100% of funds will go to players directly. We're doing 4 tiers from $25 (Bo 3) to $200 (Bo 9). All those commissioning showmatches will be placed in the matching "Showmatch Benefactor" group, which come with the same perks as our Subscribers. Except these perks are for life! Additionally, Patrons at the highest levels will receive a free $50 or $100 or $200 showmatch commission (at the $250, $500 and $750 levels respectively). Halo Wars 2 example: Replay Packs We have added downloads categories and portal panels for each game supporting replays, and have also submitted replay packs for our AoM and SC2 tournaments. Furthermore, we are unfortunately cutting support for Age of Mythology replay embedding. Single match uploads are no longer commonly used functionality, and with the rise of Twitch streaming in the last few years, we believe that replay packs are the only "wanted" format going forward. These will make it easier for those looking to do detailed learning from replays, giving access to a large batch of examples with a single download, rather than having to hunt for several, and managing folders manually. Keep your eyes on the Home Page / Game Portal widgets for replay packs! Twitch Affiliate We made it to Twitch Affiliate as quickly as possible (7 streams), thanks to you! In fact, during the Halo Wars 2 stream after this unlock, you subbed and gifted so much that we are almost at the affiliate emote limit already! Sub/bit emotes, bit/sub badges, channel points, predictions & more will be available from now on! Patreon Changes We have noticed that people seem to prefer using other options to support us, such as donations/subscriptions during live streams or on the site - and so are taking steps to make Patreon a more attractive option. As a reminder: Twitch revenue goes to staff Patreon revenue goes to tournaments Donations are a mix. We envision Patreon to be the main way to grow the tournaments in the long run. The site now has several links to Patreon - the social buttons, the header menu, and in the banner buttons. Regarding the Patreon tiers themselves, we have made changes to the most as mentioned before - offering free showmatch tokens, as well as site subscriptions as perks. Furthermore, we are shifting down some of benefits by several tiers. The goals have been reduced in number and also made more concise for an easy overview. Have a look: Status Updates: We enabled a status update panel on the front page, feel free to share what's on your mind! Future Features in the Future, from the Future: Next up, we will be working on a show match system - something not too dissimilar to our tournament system. Stay tuned! Also let us know what you would like to see from us next in the replies below. That's all for now, we'll see you on the battlefield!

  3. In this video I'm showing you how to properly Roc Drop. Don't just leave those units to do their own bidding! You can get a lot of value out of them, especially when we're talking about catapults. Thanks to @_TheLegend_ for finding this improvement to the micro trick. It's WAY better than the one I previously posted about!

    I extracted the texturebar from age of mythology the titans, and put all the images in the map. This includes all the graphics that aomt uses in the game itself. This means All the icons All textures Every image UI elements You can open all of these images in photoshop or paint and then save them as jpg or png or whatever format you prefer. You can also just open the map and look at the images. anyway enjoy!

  8. Have the semi-finals played at the same time. Also, play the finals and 3rd place match at the same time. Stream the finals live. Have an alt caster for 3rd place, or have the 3rd place match played in secret, with no results available to public. Have one of the players send recs to a tourney admin, who then sends the recs to caster spoiler free. Then cast that match after the finals. This should save an hour~ of time for your finalists. The only drawback is a game needing a save/restore (and thus no rec), in which case you could have that 3rd-person admin possibly do a private recording of the match which could then be used during the actual cast. Players are the greatest commodity, so it's best to cater to them as much as possible, especially for one day tourneys. A one day event already cuts down heavily on available players, and requiring finalists to stay 8+ hours is even more restrictive.
