Will there be Medals? :>:o:

Will there be Medals? :>:o:

We would like for there to be medals. We are in a bit of a state of flux right now because on one hand I think Valve would like us to reduce the # of unique item ID's that we're adding to the game every season and our long time medal maker is wanting compensation for his work. We had planned for awhile to be able to pay Rusky for his phenomenal work but we have had a rather significant financial setback. As you may know we don't make a profit on UGC...in fact we operate well in the red all the time. However we are able to offset some of our costs with things like our Gameservers partnership and Google Ad revenue. Back in September of 2013 our Google Ad account was suspended because of porn being posted on the forum. We have not yet been successful in appealing that suspension.

So it's too early for me to say whether there will be medals or not for Summer. We are still working on it and we hope that we can make it happen.

I say ditch the summer season medal if it's too much trouble. Other than that, I wish a good summer season to everyone.

Is Ruskeydoo designing the medals for the current season (S12 HL, S14 6s)?

My understanding of Google AdSense is that you get one appeal and that's it. If that appeal is denied, you're done - all further appeals are ignored. Was an appeal made and, if so, has Google responded to it yet? Because if the appeal has been denied, then we should move past that and work as a community to investigate other methods of generating income to support the upkeep of the league.

I don't think people appreciate what a big deal this is. What you describe Digressor can and should be happening already.

I was a bit confused. Is the current season over on the week of the 11th for all divs? Or is registration for new teams due that week for the new season. Im guessing the former.

This season is the last time I am personally organizing something like this. If you'd like to do it via paypal by all means set up your own donation drive and go for it!

If we leave our Spring season teams now, we'll still get credit for medals, correct?

Correct. Medal distribution has already been written in data.

Do we have a map list yet? Doesn't have to be in exact order, I'm just interested in what maps are probably not worth scrimming.

Medals for "spring" seasons are in progress, they should be available in about 3weeks

For "summer" seasons of HL, 6v6 and 4v4 there will be medals for participation, due in august

To reduce the number of individual items being added into the game every season, has the option of Styles been explored?

In short, only one item (e.g. "UGC Highlander Season 14 Medal") gets added, while the appropriate styles (e.g. "Gold 2nd Place") are permanently set before the participant receives them.

If I'm not wrong, this is how Australium weapons work.

Apologies if this has been explored/suggested before, and is an inappropriate solution.

Wait, so why does the home page link us here for more info, and this post links us to the home page?
