New unlockable Avatars!

Hi guys,

Just a quick note that I have added another thirty Shogun 2: Total War avatars that will unlock as you progress through the forum rankings. I managed to acquire some new concept art that is hot off the graphics tablets for you to use.

We will be adding many more unlockable and exclusive avatars in the future to further customise your profiles.

Thanks,

Mark O'Connell
(aka SenseiTW)

Note: Please don't spam the boards just to get your post count up! If you aren't seen to be making worthwhile contributions then your count will be lowered or even reset.

    Awesome!, Looking forward to some new avatars. Also am happy about the "Note"...It's amazing how some people have over 100 posts in the three days of forum activity (bar the moderators)

    Thanks for the new avatars. It lowers the change of people having the same one.
    @IBlewaFuse That's probably because we're playing a game over in the forum games section which already has 13 pages
    My posts on the new forum are generally better than the one back on the yuku forum. I'm really not trying to get a high post count I'm just posting a lot because I love the new forum. Oh and I don't need a new avatar as I'm perfectly happy with the one I have now.

    Cool, although it doesn't help too much with identification if people keep switching their avatars, but maybe will help with the fears all the available avatars have been used up.

    I have over 100 posts, although I don't think I've been spamming. If anything I'd say my posts on this board have been more useful than the ones on the old one.

    Hooray for the new avatars, though I agree it'll get somehow confusing I'm happy of the unlockable avatars (apart from the title ones Nick likes :p).

    That's a scary note by the way... Reset... Uuu, that hurts :D.

    I also think my posts on this forum have been more efficient. I've been very happy with the new forums and so have been very active lately. Recently started taking parting in the Off-topic forums for first time and having a good time in this forums :).

    By no means did I mean that if you have over 100 posts are you spamming nonsense, I merely said it was rather interesting to see so many posts in a only 72 hours.

    It could be an incentive for spamming, or it can just be an incentive to post more. I for one have had the motivation to post more as i like the idea of expansion and going places. I have also started posting in areas of the forum i wouldnt normally on Yuku. Generally having an awesome time, and it has also brought the community together in my opinion as we are all on the same par for once and are all experiencing the same things together aswell.

    I'm sure he did, Dionysius, but being called a "junior member" after all these years is a tad galling. If the only way to drop this somewhat demeaning tag is to get one's post count up, then it's no wonder that some of us are finding the need to post in threads we would not normally post in. Just a thought.

    After a couple of days on the forum now I am no longer worried/upset about the new avatar policy. The new layout and info displayed makes picking out names and people easier than Yuku.


    @Mark: We want more Shogun exclusive posts and shots. Any chance of an early beta gameplay video? I've heard you showed off a demo during E3 but couldn't find a video anywhere

    I just put myself what I believe to be one of this unlockable avatars :D. There are quite a few others that look awesome also.


    Yeah Mark, we want more info!! :) No pressure.

    No worries... hows about a photo of something that is going on in the studio right now? Give me a moment and I'll post a new thread up. :)

    I'm glad that everyone likes the new avatars. I will be adding plenty more so you shouldn't see the same one coming up too often. Unless it is awesome.

    i didn't mean to sound like "the stig" here. just seemed like basing the ability to get different avatars on post count would accelerate some their non-stop posting

    Just saw it and it's great :). Could you post more of this kind?? I'd love to see more.

    Can you please add Prussian flag in the future to ETW/NTW section? It isn't there! But other major faction flags are there. Oh and Sweden is missing flag too!
    They look awesome!

    Thanks for the new avatars Mark.

    -However for me though it's nowhere near the same as having custom, user created ones. I've posted some suggestions here which I believe would give us 'standard users' a bit more freedom without causing too much of a headache for the admins:

    Very much hope that we will be able to upload our own content at some point in the near future.

    This could really end up in some bad spamming. Hope the admins can control it. But thanks Mark!

    Must resist the urge to post...must hit 50...oh darn it...

    I do wish we could add our own avatars, like we could on Yuku, as long as they were within certain requirements. I actually have one that used to be an official Medieval II avatar.

    Sadly this functionality isn't currently available, hopefully the mods will relax the rules in the near future.

    If you'd like to be able to upload your own 'personal and unique' avatar please post your views on this thread so that the mods and CA are made aware it's an issue:
