My main question is: who will do the promotion beforehand and after?

I know that I don't have time for that, so will you (or your team) doing all this?

@Salsacz

Wait for the ad to play, or if you have adblock wait for the 30 second timer to end to play it.

21:42 is the first timestamp.

59:25

Not giving direct links to it as twitch has a nasty habit of muting the sound permanently if you link to the vod time directly.


@Damelon.


I will be doing all the promotion for the event with someone else doing the graphic work.


Afterwards as ive said i am not the best person for writing long articles so i will provide a post mortem and then anyone could write an article about it afterwards and i would answer any questions they would ask me if they need more information or anything.

Thanks for that link. I had not actually seen this, so this helps put it in perspective for me :)
It's interesting to see that one of the casters had, of course, only heard of Bitcoin and DOGE  ;D
Would it be possible for us to get the casters some more info? Or are you one of them?
I think we should seriously tone down the amount of info we make them give out. Just the basics, tell them it's a coin that doesn't need GPU to mine etc.
Going in too much won't help as most people won't care, I think. Soundbites over content would do it here.

Yes. Thats one of the things that i learned from the showmatch going into the tournament with to much information at once. Thats why i want to make small bite sized videos explaining one aspect of NXT where only one will be played at a time so they dont get confused with to much information and over the course of the entire tournament they would see each video multiple times so they would have a solid understanding of the basics behind it. Just like what NXT is and some awesome features that other cryptos dont have such as the AE.

I am going to compile a much more extensive list for the casters in the future. This is what i gave them for the showmatch.

Quote
1) NXT is truly decentralized.
It contains a decentralized asset exchange where you can trade cryptocoins or assets completley without needing to involve a thirdparty like Mt. Gox which leads to the problems Mt.Gox is facing. NXT is immune to scams, bankrupcy and the like.

2)
Energy efficient as hell. Can be ran on a raspberry pi charged with solar panels, several thousand percent more energy and cost efficient to Bitcoin.
Also additional fact: Litecoin, the second largest crypto uses graphic cards which is the reason prices of graphic cards have gone up and it's almost impossible to get certain models.
In other words: NXT is a gaming friendly crypto.


3)
True anonymity layer is being developed. This means you'll be able to trade completley anonymously, unlike Bitcoin which is transparent.


They didn't really use 3) at all in there explanations as you can see. I am going to try and compile a more extensive list highlighting basically anything so they have a good base so if someone asks a question in chat or something they are able to answer.

Yep, There had been a Dogecoin and bitcoin showmatch before the NXT one was put on. Helps to show how it can help get the NXT name out there with people in the esports world not knowing about it until theres an event.

Voting is tomorrow.
I have enough info.
I think we should talk on how to get you the correct information to get to the casters, so it fits the group we are trying to reach.

Not exactly sure what you mean by that. The plan is just to give them a list of basically all the major features of NXT with a pretty in depth description of it. If you have any suggestions on how to improve that then i am all ears.

I see 62 views in this link. It is quite pity these recordings aren't on youtube, there are only the games without these speeches

Yeah, that was one thing i was going to work on in the future, them possibly uploading the entire segment not the individual games but the reason we did it like that was to make the people watching on youtube not have to go through 5 minutes of random music or something while we setup everything ingame getting gameheart and all setup, along with some miscellaneous things such as diagnosing why the colors in the first game were the same color for the casters but we got that resolved in a timely fashion.

That exact data i do not have, but it was around 500-600 during the first ad and 1200-1300 for the second one. This is based on me glancing over at the view counter when it was live and remembering it so it may be a tiny bit off.

Edit, Also there was the polish stream which averaged 400 viewers the entire time, i had given him some basic stuff but there was not time to get him everything as he literally volunteered 3 hours before we went live. He said he gave a pitch but there are no vod's of that stream and even if they were i dont speak polish so i would have no idea what was said.

Any update on the voting progress? Just was supposed to of been voted on yesterday.

Votes take 24 hours, so it ended just a few hours ago :)

Your proposal has been approved, as outlined below:

https://nxtforum.org/marketing-committee/starcraft-2-event/

The breakdown of the funding is as follows:

80,000 NXT TOTAL

45,000 prizepool

17,500 for casters

10,000 for marketing materials and overlays and other stuff along those lines including translation of the overlay's text into the casters native languages.

5,000 NXT incase other stuff goes over. If not then it would go to me for managing the 16 players making sure that they have all the information needed on what NXT is and when the event is what the rules are when they are going to play. Making sure the casters have all the stuff they would need and all that.

Somehow he missed 2,500 Nxt in these  ;)

Ok, sorry about that then. Will get organizing it all later today then :) Thanks!

and opps on the 2500 unaccounted for, will put it to the prizepool probably.

Will keep this thread up to date with any relevant information, outside of the player list in order to prevent that from getting out before we announce it to the sc community.

Just a quick update. Right now shooting for May 20th and 21st for the event, working on getting all the invites ready to send and then we can get started on the promotional images for them, getting ready for the announcement and all.

Update, planning around WCS has been more difficult then i thought due to them announcing there dates not until very recently. There is an open slot on the 26th but WCS europe is on the 27th so we would have to do it all in one day vs the planned two days that we were planning on if we decide to go for that one, Which would not be a problem for the competition of it but it would be a problem with reduced exposure for NXT. Beyond that there still is not any news for dates for june for WCS.

We do have some players who depending on the date would be able to compete, but once again we have to find a date without any conflicts where we could do it.


Just a quick update to show that im not dead or anything. Going to be working on the advertisements for NXT some more later today and hopefully will have something to show from that soon. I have been busy the past week with some stuff in my life so i haven't gotten a chance to work on them.
