We've been a bit quiet, but that just translates to "busy" which is a good problem to have. Let's dig into the good stuff and catch everyone up to speed.
The Dev Team is settled into our new studio space and cranking out milestones. If you missed the tweet David Sears dropped in his excitement, we think you will enjoy it as much as we did.
Tom has been busy with the logistics of fulfilling the physical backer rewards (read: stuffing envelopes) and some of you have been sending us pictures of your patches received and we love the feedback. We are on track to have all the "physical" rewards filled for you by Christmas. Santa is going to be so proud of us, we hope you are too.
This leads us into a plea for help. We are STILL missing surveys from our backers. If you believe we might be missing yours, and you contributed through the Kickstarter Campaign site, please log into your Kickstarter account to check - you will see a notification at the top of the site for any missed surveys. No notice means you are GOOD! If you were part of the Paypal drive after Kickstarter and think you may not have sent your survey, kindly send us a message on the (contact us) so we can look into it and get everybody the rewards they so richly deserve. Please include the email you used to pledge and your user name on the forums.
That's not the update news you were looking for? Then how about we update you on the Private Forums? (yea baby!) We are ready, set, hold on a second ....
Just kidding. We will have those opened and rolling before you start Trick or Treating. How does October 23rd sound? We have started some streamlined threads on the forums to kick things off and we want to hear from ALL of you on them. Our Team Lead, NO_FEAR will be hosting the Private Forums once they unlock and Team Lead, Rosie_Rascal will be holding down the public forums, reach out to them if you should have any questions.
Let's end this with a BOOMSTICK shall we: A Live Broadcast with the studio has been added to the calendar this month. On October 29th we will host a Live Broadcast, dropping knowledge and updates all over the place. If you go to Twitch.tv/SOFstudios and click that purple "follow" button, it will email you a notification anytime the studio goes Live. More on this news can be found in our forums early next week.
If you haven't done so get plugged in on our forums www.sofstudios.com, follow us on Twitter https://twitter.com/SOFstudios or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SOFstudios so we can all stay connected. Make sure to Tweet us your member user name so we can follow you back.
What you want MORE? Eh, why not! Hmmmm, let me think .... Oh I got it, let's do a contest for entry into the Private Forums with Beta access! YES THIS ALL DAY LONG! Vines and more Vines, the popular mobile app that let's you record a 6 second video. https://vine.co
Record us a Vine video giving H-Hour: World's Elite a "shout" and post them up on our forum thread (we will open one, Titled: Vine Contest). Be creative. I'm not opposed to seeing one spelled out in ketchup on your kitchen floor. There our members will "Like" their favorites and on October 22nd before our Private Forum access opens, we will choose a winner by who has accumulated the most "Likes". Now, keep them classy please!
This contest is open to everyone, backers and non-backers alike and yes even those that already have access through our Gunny + pledges. If you already have access and win, then you can take a friend of your choice along with you.
Bam! Pow! Boom!
As always, we appreciate your continued support and feedback.
