Prizes for Running Matches and Recruiting Friends

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?”

    I use puush for my match submissions. It’s a quick download, and it has modular screenshot options: screen, current window, custom area. The shortcuts are pretty much all the same, and it makes a custom URL for you screenshot. It’s also really fast.

    i would start matches if i didnt have to fiddle with screenshots and pictures when reporting results :(

      Well, if you have ideas for making the process easier, let me know. I’m trying to keep it as easy as possible.

        Well if we still used LoLNexus, I’d recommend using a service like https://screenshotmachine.com/ as it doesn’t require you to save, then upload it to imgur.

        However, unless na.op.gg will automatically show the game your in when you play (which I honestly don’t know if it does, I just think it doesn’t) then the site won’t work.

        Also, I’m not sure how long the pages stay on the server, here’s a link for one that was posted at 4:00 PM Mountain time though if you want to check: https://screenshotmachine.com/serve.php?img=na-op-gg-FULL-346868.png

          One thing I only realized recently: if you use Snipping Tool in Windows to get the screenshot and copy it, you can literally just open imgur.com and ctrl-v to paste it in and auto-upload it. It’s pretty fast.

          And yes, you have to look up the match on na.op.gg after the match; it won’t automatically display it, I don’t think.

      • StormRevolver says:

        cant we somehow use the match history riot has?

        • CupcakeTrap says:

          That’s on the form, but it doesn’t list ranks, and actually (for custom games) doesn’t usually even give everyone’s Summoner name.

      If you ask nicely, some people volunteer to submit match results for you. I had no idea how to submit matches until like a month ago, so I always asked a teammate or opponent to do it.
