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.

Eventually we'll have a way for them to send us several armatars specific to their game.


now that is going to be brilliant! a great way to personalize your account based on the games that you like.

another issue with that, is that there is more than likely going to be copyright on those images, which meens that it would be breaking that copyright to use it as an image.

i think that achievement linked armatars is a very good idea bcause the players will get gifted when they are very good in a game and they will play the game longer as well to get tha achievement and playing a game longer means better comments !

NO to Custom Amatars. But maybe, we could have amatars that are characters from Armor Games Games?

cormyn said that no custom armatars are allowed on AG3. Therefore, what you said was irrelevant since cormyn has already agreed with you that there will be no custom armatars.

How about design your own armatar like the cod black ops emblem thing you get given shapes to make your own?

How about you read the thread where I say no custom armatar designs will happen in phase one? ;o)

No uploading or creating armatars will be allowed on AG3.

Actually, as far as I have seen (and as I wrote in the title), the idea of implementing it is on hold. Ian has said the discussion is closed, yes, but besides that there have been no say on whether the idea has been entirely discarded or not.
So, if you really must comment on people who can't read (I don't know why, since they won't be reading your reply either), at least state that the idea is currently on hold, instead of the "NOT GONNA BE IN EVAR!" thing, because that is a little frustrating.

Actually, considering Ian did say no discussion or mention on custom armatars would stay in the thread, just smile and move on. If they can't read the OP and come whining about how their idea is not being discussed, then they will be told exactly why by a mod or admin, and we can move on.


Now, instead:
this topic is to discuss how the AG3 beta manages armatars.
If you have nothing to say about this very topic, go somewhere else.
Thanks.

How about some of the armatars are based of popular games? Like a Sonny Armatar or a Blue Elephant aramatar...


There just so happens to be game based armatars in AG3. So far they have Elephant Quest and Siege Hero.

Is there anywhere we can see what some of the new armatars look like?


You could've signed up for AG3 beta, but it's closed now going into public beta. It'll come out soon though.
