People are running lots of matches. This is excellent.
Although I can’t announce details just yet, I do want to say that once the arc ends I’ll be looking to reward Summoners who have done these two things:
- Start matches. This is absolutely central to Factions. (It’s the core concept, Lana.) People who run matches and submit match results will be recognized.
- Recruit friends. Next time your friends hit you up for a Normal, why not invite them to play a Factions match? Or if you have friends who are into lore and such, why not mention Factions to them? We’ve relied a lot on Reddit-recruiting in the past, but Reddit is increasingly hostile to non-eSports things, and besides, I think we get a more tightly knit and happy community when there are lots of pre-existing friend-ties.
By the way, I’m going to try to stream some matches with KyleDangerHenick and Venia Vis tonight. I might find a way to give preference to people who have run lots of matches or recruited lots of friends in the past few days. Anyway, it should be fun times.
Let’s end this arc with a bang! In a few months, all the bright-eyed new people will be like, “wow, you were in the fight for Nyroth, grandma and grandpa? Tell me about it! Did you vote to restore the Poro King to his throne in Yoroth?”
