This is another re-take on the Armatar discussion because we need to clarify a few points.

First, this topic is to discuss how the AG3 beta manages armatars.

Secondly, if you just want to ask for new armatars, discuss it with Dan.

Third, we are still discussing whether we want to allow custom armatars in the future, because of copyright and licensing issues that will come up from that, so that idea is ON HOLD.

If messages in here aren't about the interface we've built, how we could improve it, etc., then I'll probably trim the message.

Questions about how to unlock armatars, etc., are totally welcome and I'll provide answers as I have them. As of the time I write this, the understanding I have is that all AG2 armatars will be unlocked on AG3 by default, and we will unlock seasonal armatars through some process eventually.

We are also going to start asking game developers for one or more armatars related to their game, which users can select, but I don't think they'll be locked in any way. We've talked about unlocking special armatars based on achievements, but since achievements aren't finished yet, we can't go into much detail on that.

May i ask:
How do u even get to have a custom armatar in the first place?


The Custom Armatars we have in AG2 were user-drawn and taken from the Seasonal Armatar Contests. I would think that in AG3, the original idea that many wanted implemented is to upload a picture of their own as a custom Armatar. Hopefully, this won't be the case though.

Hmm, screw the OP and following the rules for a bit (since the staff doubtfully is even reading this thread for suggestions anymore, them being busy and trying to fix stuff people complain about).

Think of it, if they end up allowing usermade armatars like the ones in the armatar contests. We all know that some people will be doing their stuff themselves, but with an actual opportunity to get (almost) whatever you want, either for only you to use, or for a selected group or whatnot, I can only assume the AMW section will be the one place to go for customized armatars. Some users will probably advertise that they are doing requests in their about, or perhaps do so in the art section, while others might be sought out and begged in their threads or on their profile, depending on their abilities and interest in doing things for free (as AG would doubtfully allow paying for armatars).
Now, what I really wonder is whether this will be considered a good or a bad thing, since we have a nice community at large, that wouldn't jump to harassment if they are denied.
But how would such a development be viewed from a more, well, rule-minded point of view? If a certain user only have the ability to upload a certain amount of armatars, they might not be able to keep up. Someone might want the armatar for private use, in case that is possible, but would that be considered against the rules, to use the work of another user as their own, even if they have all the rights/permission to do so?

I am not quite sure where my opinion lies, but perhaps the opinion of others might clear it up a little.

It would be awesome if we can make our armateurs and if AG like it they will share it

i think it would be awesome that games (like kingdom rush) gave an special armatar upon finishing the mission or doing a hard achievement of course if they added this feature it would take time to judge if the image doesnt breaks a copyrigth

I THINK ONCE YOU GET TO A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF AG POINTS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CREATE A CUSTOM ARMATAR. IF SOMEONE COPYRIGHTS THEN LET THE COPS KNOW ABOUT IT.

There are multiple problems with your post:

1) You posted in all caps, which is not allowed.
2) The admins said no to custom armatars.
3) The second sentence of your post makes no sense in the context of this thread or your post.

I agree with bramiboy google chrom is so what more better in my opinion, IE takes some time to start up and crashes, while google chrom is fast and never crashes for me.

I've been reading, and assuming that you can transfer accounts, it wasn't really clear to me if I can keep my armatar there.

The armatar you use on AG2 will transfer over to AG3.
