@Just-B As far as esoteric…yes and no. It’s had it’s ebbs and flows of players, but peaks upwards of 500,000 players. It’s a very difficult game (which is partly why it is on the lower end for #of players in the e-sports community) and does have it’s “own language” so to speak. It’s poetically been called a mix between a musician (actions per minute averages around 3-400 for a good player) and a chess master. These players on the poster are very well known within the community and also have won a lot of money playing this game. This might make your jaw drop, but I looked up the winnings for these two guys.
A web poster, well, we use it to advertise on different online mediums like you thought. Game specific sites like Team Liquid, Discord (which is a chat program), Reddit and Twitter.
@wdesign This is going to sound silly, but I have never really thought of creating a poster that is “exciting”. I guess I’ve just thought they should look nice and provide the needed information. So, that will definitely change my perspective going forward. The poster is always accompanied by text in the form of a post, so some of your suggestions are placed there rather than on the poster. Do you still think it would be worthwhile?
Alright, here is take 3. Any better?
