I'm going to use this thread as a way for potential TDs and current TDs to get a look at the avatars available for FAF and some potential ideas on how to utilize them so that they actually are not just filling up space in our avatar vault. If you guys want more avatars for people in the community, feel free to use some of the ideas I post here and pm me that you're interested in hosting. If you see an avatar that sounds interesting but you have a different idea, that's cool too. Anything that leads to an increase in tournaments or competitions at ALL levels of play is good in my eyes.

I can also edit names for avatars, so if you like the icon but want to change the wording, let me know.

PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE USING ANY AVATAR HERE AS AN AWARD

Avatar 1: BlackOps Tournament Winner
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/BlackOpsWinner.png

Pretty basic, just host a tournament of any rating restriction using the BlackOps mod. Good way for people that are lower rated but more experienced in the mod to gain an advantage over traditionally strong players.

Avatar 2: Eco Emperor
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/mASSter-of-mASS.png

The basic idea would be to host a tournament on juicy mass maps like Ditch or Seton's. Another idea is to hold a competition like "Who can build a paragon the fastest on [crazyrush/ditch/setons/wonder/flat] or any map really. A competition for someone to reach 1k mass income the fastest maybe.

Avatar 4: I'm a special snowflake!
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/SpecialSnowflake.png

This is one I'd like to change the wording of, really. It can be a good avatar for some winter tournament of any type/rating.

Avatar 5: Ultimate Assimilator
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/assimilator.png

This was originally an avatar for winning a 3v3 tournament. It can function as a supplementary avatar similar to Winner of Hearts that could be given to someone that manages to steal their opponent's tech during a match. It can also be used in some tournament that spawns people with the faction tech of multiple players or anything else on that line.

Avatar 6: Stack Wizard
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/Stack%20Wizard.png

Make a tournament specifically focused on getting a high rated dude to partner with some lower rated player. Of course, you should make it so that the low rated player should have some quantity of games to prevent some smurf team and not really provide funds for such a tourney as it could induce bad behavior.

Avatar 7: Holy Trinity Winner
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/Holy%20Trinity%20Winner.png

It's an avatar that can be given out for anything really so long as it follows a theme of involving 3 people.

Avatar(s) 9: Fixed in Equilibrium
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/equilibrium.png
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/equilibrium2v2.png

Literally anything to do with equilibrium. I think it isn't really being actively maintained now(?), so if someone wants to become a new maintainer I'd even be willing to give them the avatar for it.

Avatar 10: Average Joe Champion
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/average_joes_15.png

Pretty self-explanatory, just host some tournament focused on the <1500 rating group. Ideally a 1v1 tournament.

Avatar 11: Survival Champion
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/survival.png

Could have a few interesting concepts. You could host a tournament on some max difficulty survival map and whoever gets the longest time alive wins the avatar. You could do something where low rated players have to survive against a high rated player(s) (1v1, teamgames) and whoever survives the longest gets the avatar. You could also do the reverse and have a high rated player face low rated players on some certain map and whoever can survive against the most low rated players gets the avatar. Just some sort of fun concept like this, doesn't need to be SUPER SERIOUS balanced.

http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/prime_commander_finalist.png

Some sort of 1v1 tournament?

Avatar 13: Master of Cake
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/cake1.png

No idea boss. Maybe host a tournament on maps that look like food?

Avatar(s) 14: WWPC

http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/WWPC2v2U1800.png
http://content.faforever.com/faf/avatars/WWPC2v2U1200.png

WWPC Avatars for 2v2, the tournament thread for this already exist essentially. What we need are TDs that are willing to stick to the concept and host it. Maybe we can do something where if a team that has the avatar is challenged, they have a week to play the team that challenged them or they forfeit the avatar? They could have a max amount of challenges. Feel free to ask if you're interested in keeping track of this stuff.

KING/PRINCE OF MAPS:

  • Astro
  • Gap
  • Canis River
  • Theta
  • Niflheim
  • Eye of the Storm
  • Roanoke Abyss
  • Twin Rivers
  • Regor VI Highlands
  • Seraphim Glaciers
  • Badlands
  • Syrtis Major
  • Crimson Feud
  • Loki
  • Open Palms
  • Blasted Rock
  • Finn's Revenge

I don't need to provide a pic, it's the damn map on gold/silver bars. I might just give out the avatars to random people (king for 1800+, prince for <1800) and whoever beats that person at that specific map receives the avatar, provided they give me a valid replay of the game. Of course, if you challenge someone and they fail to play, they would also forfeit the avatar. If you are interested in keeping track of this, let me know.

Otherwise, just a basic >host a tournament with this map and whoever wins gets the ava.
