AtWar's Supporters Team does a lot for AtWar, a lot of which the community doesn't know about. So, we've decided to give monthly updates on what the Supporters are doing.
AIois has made a Trello Board for the public to see. In this Trello board, a list(s) of things the Supporters' are doing-- everything from to-dos to public meetings. Alois will keep this board updated regularly so the community can stay informed on what the team is doing.
You can access the board here:
Over the past month, the Supporter's team has been working hard to get AtWar's social media back up and running. Specifically, Superhero and Viserion have. Both team members have been working through Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube to bring the public information about what's going on in the game or in the case of Viserion, guides on the game and a little bit of world history.
You can expect more posting from these two individuals in the future!
As of recent, the Supporter's team have taken action in AtWar's HTML Map Editor. Either looking for bugs, then testing them out and even inviting players such as Tunder3 to help out due to their experience in the Editor; The Supporters, as well as community members, are working hard to help what means most to AtWar, working.
Though this all cannot be done without the help of the community, their research and their opinions. So to those who are helping report bugs, give opinions, and regularly use the HTML editor: Keep up the good work.
ProtoCoin/SP Drops and Events
The Supporters regularly host PC/SP Drops, however, that shouldn't be their only use. You can expect not only more PC/SP Drops but giveaways as well. These giveaways will include one-month premium, PC giveaway, forum promotions, shameless advertisement promotions, Map promotions and more to come.
On top of this, a random game being hosted by any player may be selected for one of these drops or giveaways.
Note: Your game will not be selected if it's failed, a troll game, or a troll map. Your game must be genuine.
As of late, the Supporters' recently implemented a new category to their list of jobs: Community Relations. Supporters who are in this job, will by hand go to the community and update them on the latest happening in AtWar. On top this, they will be answering questions, mentoring/guiding players in the right direction, and ultimately building a cool relationship with AtWar's community.
Currently, the public cannot know who is on this team due to it being new and in its set-up stage.
This job may receive changes as it is new to the team; however, it's current description is its focal point.
The Supporter's team has decided to create a lesser version of the team and offer assistance to those who want to help the game but can't or don't want to become a supporter. With this being said, no names who are part of this will be disclosed to the public. This is purely for people who want to help the game and don't have the knowledge, materials, or support needed to do so.
If you have any questions, I suggest you contact AIois about it and we'll go from there.
Our Previous Meeting: August 18th, 2019
It was decided to keep the website staff and discord staff separate. However website staff will still have the main say when it comes to the discord, applications for things such as events, chat mods, as well as discord administrators, is as of now up and running on the Discord.
On top of this, website administration can still see how to administrate the discord server by seeing the guide Alois posted in staff chat. Supporters were also given moderative roles on the server
We had an issue with the map editor role on the supporter's team and it's lead. It wasn't doing much and didn't really have a place in the supporter team. So, we decided for the lead of this area to be able to post regular updates about the map editor (this includes fixes and all that good stuff) which would require them to have access to the test server as well as direct and active contact with whichever developer is working on the code for the map editor.
We wanted to come up with a few events for the future, but it was decided a future post (by Alois) will be made with a list of events that can/could be done by the supporters.
We confirmed release intervals for the AW Press, making it officially every three months. This gives us time for our information and process. On top of this, we confirmed to start adding community members as part of the AtWar Times Network (ATN) as it was widely known for doing so and it helps us a lot.
Sadly, the community seems to be somewhat happy of what we are currently discussing/doing; as so I had nothing to put in the community section on the meeting agenda.
There were more discussions about advertising the game. We also discussed making an information box when you search AtWar on google that would normally pop up on the right; however since AtWar doesn't have one, it doesn't show.
On top of this, we talked about resetting player's elo seasonally and instead of having a season elo and a duel elo, just combine the duel elo with seasonal and make a separate thing for "top elo overtime". This is largely still a hot topic.
The Supporter's team is slowly going through a major revamp. We will not accept people who don't give value to the team nor are qualified for the job that the Supporter's take on. Next, we are going to be keeping the public more updated about what is happening with not only the supporters but the game as a whole, as that is part of our job. Finally, "This Month On The Supporters..." will hopefully turn into a weekly post (instead of monthly) to bring the community information; as the Supporters are working hard as volunteers to keep AtWar going!
Thank you to those who stick around to support the game, or in general, enjoy it
