    Ahh yes, I am always working to improve the site :)
    I got some more board wide updates for everyone!

    Trophy System
    The default XenForo trophy system has been expanded to include several new features and trophies!
    Head over to the Trophy Section to see the new trophies you can earn on our site :)

    We hope to add more trophies in the near future. Hopefully some of our members can give us ideas on what trophies they would like to see

    Avatar Gallery - Discontinued
    After much consideration I have decided to remove the default avatar gallery. This was a cosmetic feature on the forum. Users where able to select a photo from a pre-defined gallery to use as their avatar/profile picture. However, after looking through the forums and seeing the same image being used over and over again, I have decided against it. I ultimately believe user avatars should have a more personal touch to them. Something that can represent the user, their favourite games, or their personality. Users will now have to upload their own avatars.

    Mystery Game
    Some of our games are rather expensive within the shop. I understand this struggle. However, they are this way because they are priced at market value, or on sale. If a game is $40, it will be 400 rebellions. If that game went on sale for 50% off for $20, it will then be placed on sale for 200 rebellions. If no one buys that game when the retail sale ends, our sale will continue! It will be 200 rebellions until someone buys a copy. Regardless if the sale for that game is over or not.

    With all that said, it may be hard sometimes to save up enough rebellions to purchase the big title games that just came out. This is why I am now releasing the "Mystery Game". The mystery game within the shop will give you a random game from a certain selection. The majority of the games will be smaller but yet still awesomely enjoyable games. If you are lucky, you will get a chance to be given a game of $70 in value.
    The mystery game will cost between 5 rebellions to 100 rebellions at a time. At this given moment, I have started the shop to sell the first few mystery games for only 10 rebellions.

    As of this moment, all mystery games require steam.

    The mystery game is an interesting idea. I'd like to see what people end up with :)

    Glad to see we are doing something more with the trophy system - always thought it would be a great thing to use on an gaming forum.

    That mystery game is a great idea!
