A big problem OKgamers has already - people think it's a clique - lol.  Yea, a public website that has open invites and welcoming groups - is a clique.  Sigh. 


Still - even if this idea will work to only help that perspective - I wonder it's effectiveness...  Or if it's just too late - and I should be asleep.

--

Idea:  Create "OFFICIAL OKGAMERS FIGHTING GAMER" shirts
 - tagline "THE BEST OK HAS TO OFFER, AND FOR SURE BETTER THAN YOU."

Or - along those lines :)

A low cost shirt, 5 to 8$, that we get printed up locally for anyone that has attended and played in X amount of tournaments, and showed up to X amount of local gatherings, etc...

Every few to 6 months we can do another run of shirts for those that have hit the qualifications - and award it to them at the next event, or just hand it out to the local gamer leaders and have them do it at their next practice.

PRO's - unity.  Rewarding those that stick around.  Another way to be elitist?  lol
CON's - could really backfire, and only run people off in droves, more so.


It was an idea at least.

We could also include a "Want to Stop SUCKING?  ASK HOW." sort of tag line...

Anyway - we'd need REAL COOPERATION, and have the leaders of the groups wearing it:
SSM - would need to be down
MvC - if they exist?  Would need to be down.
MK - Rev and Bunny and whoever else you've amassed?  Down.
SC players - will do whatever it takes to find more gamers hahah.


Anyway - we all know true fighting gamers are a rare breed - why not be bold about it, and stir the pot enough to find more?

I like this idea. I was actually thinking about printing our own Smash crew shirts.

I'd like to add in that the last batch of OKGamers apparel was very nicely done and I still have my hoodie and my T-shirt. 

C'MON PEOPLE, SUPPORT!

It may have bled over into bad PR for OKgamers over the years - but I do know when it comes to handling fighting gamers?  Nice doesn't get you nearly as far as point blank "you are trash" talk lol.


If you guys are really down, and would support it - it just comes down to tweaking the statement / slogan to put on the shirt.

I was thinking:

Front
small type:  OFFICIAL OKGAMERS
large type: FIGHTING GAMER
Maybe in an "OK state" outline similar to OKgamers

Back
THE BEST OK HAS TO OFFER;
FOR SURE BETTER THAN YOU.

or

Back
Want to Stop SUCKING
AT FIGHTING GAMES? 
ASK HOW.

--

etc, etc.  I'm not sold / married to any of it - just throwing out ideas.  If we could narrow down a title / tagline - I could knock out a design.
