  2. Our forums are optional for members. Discord is required. The original concept was the other way around but the tools people use to communicate in gaming clans has evolved. The Discord app is great and has a lot of tools available to enhance your server. You can use it to set up LFG, quickly see what someone else is playing, obtain game stats (for Destiny), have as many channels as you need (same purpose as forums here), get notifications when a member goes live streaming and much more. So why even bother with forums? My number one reason is group conversation and communication. Just as you’re reading this topic now, if it were in Discord and not pinned somewhere, you probably wouldn’t see it at all unless you happened to be in the server when it was posted, or shortly after. And, if you did reply hours later then it would be confusing for some as to what you were responding to. Forum topics allow for a larger discussion that stays on the designated topic without mixed conversations happening in between. You have options here to turn on/off notifications for any topic or member you want to follow. I love the functionality of Discord, but it does sadden me how people today see forums as antiquated. In addition to group conversation, a website gives your clan/community/brand an identity, a home. Some of the features here can be integrated into Discord with the right webhook, such as scheduling a calendar event that members RSVP to. Granted, with the right bot, you can set up LFG independently in Discord, but again, it can get muddled and confusing even in a channel dedicated to LFG. The calendar system here is cleaner, easier to navigate, and I prefer it. I also love being able to send out email notifications to everyone if needed. The list goes on and on...sharing video clips, using the Clubs add on, awarding members with icons/ribbons to display in their profiles and posts to recognize their activity...so much you can do. But even if all of that is more than you care about or have time for, see my number one reason above. So, I’ve made forum membership optional for all members but I will always feel that those who visit and participate here will have a better experience with the community. Just my thoughts. Feel free to share yours.

    Who’s an Xbox Insider?

    Anyone can be an Insider now, just install the app and follow instructions on your Xbox. But I guess the more specific question is “who is in the preview program?”. If you are, what ring? How has your experience been? Any issues with your Xbox as a result?
  5. Just a question of curiosity. I don’t subscribe to many. Here’s my current list: jxtutorials is old content for GIMP that I learned how to do some graphics with a few years ago. I keep it on hand for reference. MarcoStyle is one of the best sources for The Division content. theRadBrad covers a variety of games and he’s just entertaining to listen to when I’m interested in something new and want to catch some video on it first.

    What's your gaming set up?

    My tv could be better, but I can't complain. I play on the One X with a Vizio M-50-e1. That's a 50" true 4K HDR set, but just not as nice as some of the Sonys and other tvs out there. I use a Turtle Beach XO Four Stealth headset. What's your set up?
  7. Some people have elaborate stories, funny stories, or not much story at all, but either way...how did you come up with your gamertag?
  8. Super Mega Baseball 2 May 1st - 31st (Xbox One) Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain May 16th - June 15th (Xbox One) SEGA Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage May 1st - 15th (Xbox One and 360) Vanquish May 16th - 31st (Xbox One and 360)

    Co-Op Gaming

    There's been a strong shift towards co-op gaming over the last few years. Prior to that, multiplayer matches in games such as CoD and Battlefield dominated the landscape. Destiny was one of the first games of the modern era to create a truly immersive co-op experience in PvE, although it also had standard multiplayer with Crucible. Since then, we've seen more and more games designed to bring people together for new experiences. GTA Online is probably the most successful formula and, in my opinion, a pioneer in the field. Released a month after the launch of GTA V as an addition to the game, it allows you to play solo or with friends in a variety of challenges and activities. Four and a half years after release, new content is still being added monthly. Friday the 13th isn't exactly co-op, but it's a fresh game type that friends can play together publicly or in private matches. You can team up as Counselors trying to escape or kill Jason, or have fun with one of you playing as Jason trying to kill your buddies. Usually, when we think of co-op we think of a story based campaign experience that allows more than one person to play it together. In that respect, the aforementioned games don't fit the bill, but these are examples of how co-op has evolved. That doesn't mean we're not seeing the standard model being weaved into more and more games, though. Ghost Recon: Wildlands and The Division each allow a team of up to 4 players to play together, whether it be running the story or participating in end-game activities such as Excursions or Underground for Division, or Ghost War for Wildlands. Rainbow Six | Siege is another game that shows Ubisoft's commitment to the co-op genre. Again, 4 people can play together either in live matches against other teams or against AI. While we're showcasing Ubisoft, add Far Cry 5 to the list. The co-op experience is limited here in that you can play the entire game with another person, and even keep any money/weapons you earn, but you won't progress your own game campaign unless you're the host. Still, it's a lot of fun and co-op makes it that much better. Moving on from Ubisoft, the upcoming State of Decay 2 gets in on the co-op action, allowing up to 4 people to play together. This is a shake up from the original title which was single player only. A Way Out was a surprise hit from indie developer Hazelight Studios and published by EA that not only allows 2 player co-op, but demands it. That's the only way the game can be played. The good news is that only one person has to own it, though. Overkill Software (Payday 2) has a new Walking Dead co-op game coming out this year that play on the success of Payday 2, which also allowed up to 4 people to work together as hiesters to complete jobs. Sea of Thieves recently released and is another shared world adventure that can be played alone or in a group. It's definitely a refreshing new game that seems to have great feedback on Xbox. Which co-op games do you play or are you looking forward to?

The signature image size restriction is set for 600 x 150 px. You can create one or ask someone to make one for you. How do I add a signature? Once you have a signature available, upload it to a hosting site. I recommend imgur.com. Then just copy the image link called "direct link". Now go to your "Account Settings" from your profile drop down menu, as shown below. Next, select "Signature" from your Settings. Finally, just paste the link you copied right into your signature space. The site will automatically convert it to the image for you (same for posting image links in topics). You can use the editor to center it, add text above or under it, and links. Save when you're done. NOTE: Signatures are disabled for mobile so you will not see them unless you are on a PC.

    Blogs

    Blogs is a feature built in to the software and available to those who want to take advantage of it. Use your imagination, but stay within the overall community guidelines. This might be a tool you use for posting something like your personal strategies in a game, or share a story you wrote. Remember, use the forums first when it makes sense. Discussions there are likely to get more attention and feedback. To create a blog, just hover over the Browse tab in the navigation bar and find the option there. Choose to enable or disable RSS feed. Once you've created your blog, you can add a cover photo and add your first entry. Choose a publish time or publish immediately. Be sure to turn on the "auto-follow" option if you want to get notifications when someone comments.

    Calendar

    The primary Calendar can be used when you want to schedule a game activity such as a raid, incursion, or just a general game night for a specific game. Go to the Calendar, create event, and set your start and end times, option for recurring or single event, a description of the event, and upload an image if you want. Other members can view the upcoming event on the Spotlight page, the sidebar on the forum page, or by clicking on the Calendar in the navigation bar. Just remember, if you schedule an event and people sign up to join you, make sure you're available to host it. As mentioned in the Clubs thread, Club owners can add their own calendars and schedule events there as well. Birthdays will also be on the Calendar by default.

    Clubs

    Clubs is a feature that allows you to have your own sub-community within the clan. For example, you may have a dedicated group for running raids in Destiny 2. You can name your Club and set options for it. First, you'll chose your privacy settings: Public Everyone can see the club and its posts, and can participate without joining. Open Everyone can see the club and its posts, but only members can participate. Everyone can join. Closed Everyone can see the club and who's in it, but only members can see posts and participate. Users need to ask a leader to join. You can also add a description and an icon. Once you've established a Club, you can manage the features you want to implement. Add a background photo, a topics section (your own forum), and a calendar for scheduling your sessions. Invite whoever you like to join and manage your Club the way you see fit, as long as you remain within the overall community guidelines. In order to avoid everyone starting up their own Clubs and no one having enough members to make them functional, this feature will require permissions unlock after you submit your request to staff. Whether it be through private message, party chat or Discord, just let us know what you've got in mind and we'll take it from there.
