PostSubject: League/Tournament Medals   Sat Nov 21, 2009 7:37 pm

Yo Guys,

I was thinking that it would be cool to award medals/trophies to winners of clan competitions inc. leagues and tourneys.

Rewards would be an online logo or something similar to what is used on PDCmagic: http://pdcmagic.com/index.html

example..


I don't know how you would assign these to a user, I suppose you would simply have to give them the URL to the file and let them add it to their forum sig?

I would say the trophies would have to be pretty small images otherwise sigs could get clogged up. Maybe 100x40px or sumit?

Just a random idea, wondering what you all think?

I could try an make a mock up if anyone thinks its a good idea and can suggest an ideal size for the image? Sure theres a decent web designer in our clan that could do a good job of it though?


Cheers

I like the idea of having better recognition for our winners, which is why I added a trophy hall to this site.
If sig medals also had the effect of increasing posts on the forum that wouls also be fantastic.
I'd like them to be different enough from pdc medals to make it obvious that they are common sense brand.
Jimmus, can you make some prototypes for us to see and talk about?

Hey dude,

I think they will have to be pretty small as they could clog up sigs if too big.

I will put some together over the next couple of weeks. Decent images are hard to come by for free so probs best that I stick with the massive image pool that mtgo client provides us with Smile

Windows default install dir.
C:\Program Files\Wizards of the Coast\Magic Online III\Graphics\Cards\Pics

I am super busy at the mo with a handful of projects but will try and get something done shortly.

We could then extend the medals/awards earned during leagues e.g. some people may not win any prize money but could earn a medal for 'biggest defeat' or 'smartest play' etc etc. Could be fun Smile

I will make one for myself....'Biggest n00b' SmileSmile

Cheers
Jim

Yo,

I havnt had any time to make medal, sorry Sad

I will try and make a couple in the next few days as am not working Smile

Here's one, I personally don't like it though lol

I think a simple background image with a useful text over the top is probably the way forward!













I will put together a couple of button style images to see what you think.


Cheers
Jim

I've made another.

Might be a bit too OTT, see what you think.



I just drew a random shape (left rectangle) and then a smaller random shape (on right). The can be any shape/size, could have multiple smaller boxes or simply one rectangle or square.

Let me know preferable shapes etc or leave as is.

The images used here are mtgo card art, suggestions for images can be found here:
<MTGO Installation directory> e.g. "C:\Program Files\Wizards of the Coast\Magic Online III\Graphics\Cards\Pics"

If anyone else can supply alternatives then please do, i'm a coder not a designer Sad


Thanks
Jim

How about something like this?

Easy to duplicate, can change the top color easily to silver, bronze etc

Can change the text color of course.




Cheers

I'm not ignoring this, just haven't had time to think it through yet. Yes, the first one was OTT, but it is also distinctive and colourful. The ones with cups seemed a bit naff to me. The last 2 are also distinctive. My only general thought is that they're all rather large.

yea totally grew mate. I'm a rubbish designer but can copy. If we get some feedback from everyone then maybe we can come up with something unique and appropriate.

The example above can be resized along with the text as appropriate.

If anyone sees something cool online then post it here and I can replicate/modify. I have no imagination when it comes to this sort f thing.

Happy new year Smile
