    Forums Newsletter Issue #3


    ^Click for link^
    Well, here I am again.
    Today, I am bringing you the THIRD issue of the Paladins Forums Newsletter. That's right. The non-existent hype is over ;v!

    We have taken a look at the feedback, and come to a general conlcusion that we need to make it look better. Eloxist, our design expert
    definitely did a good job as (in our opinion) this issue looks GREAT!


    QUICK SUMMARY:
    OB63 has come out, and we bring you a summary of the patch notes.
    With the recent mobility nerfs: an article on More or Less mobility.
    The usual Fan Art, trending threads, and featured guide.

    CREDITS:
    Borvik Publisher/Editor/Resources
    TheFlamingGhost: Writer/Resources
    Kaydude2010: Writer/Resources
    Eloxist: Writer/Desgin

    We would also like to announce that we are still hiring an editor/resources! Message me on discord for info or to apply!

    We hope you enjoy this issue! Do you have any feedback? Leave it right here on this thread! We are always looking at our flaws, and with
    constructive criticism, we can improve!

    WELP! That's it.
    Have a good day!
    -Borvik & Co.

    Looks great.
    Congratulations, you've noticed my post.
    I'm your typical nerdy high schooler; pleasure to make your acquaintance. I'm also a chronic gamer who couldn't afford full priced games, a salty Torvald main, and an antisocial logophile. Anyways, it was nice meeting you. I'm sure we'll get along fine. Maybe not, but who cares. Soundcloud?

    This Guide is dead. RIP.

    The cover design is awesome.
    --

    It looks good and nice to read.
    Good work guys.

    Criticism:
    I think the color choices for background and text should be given a thought.
    for ex: The page which has "Patch Ob 63" feels kinda uncomfortable to read. I would recommend to maintain a good contrast between the BG and the text (I think lighter or paler colors for BG and Dark variants for Texts would be good)

    Thanks.

    Principle #5: Initially worry most about gameplay and fun. We can improve the art quality and general polish later on.

    Should be changed to:
    Initially worry most about selling skins and cosmetics. We can improve gameplay and balance later on.

    Players DON'T come here for Skins/Broken Champs. They come here for FUN.

    Wow. The page design improved tremendously. I'm impressed. I will give feedback though.

    1. I think most background color choices clash, and make certain things hard to look at. (Especially since we're viewing it on a huge white background for the website.) It's just a bit hard to read.

    2. Why is it so small? Compared to my monitor size it's taking up nothing. What resolution are you guys doing this in?

    3. Red is hard to read. Never do it for everything. (Pages 7 and 8.)

    4. The text is too wall-of-texty. It's also really small. Realistically, no one can read that. They're really discouraged too, at least. I like the size/style of like, page 12. That's easy to read and spaced into manageable sections.

    Next issue: what happens when two forum members cross paths on opposite teams?

    http://forums.paladins.com/showthrea...l=1#post400876

    Consider that a content recommendation.

    Edit: Oh but my post "sounds" mean. I actually had fun. I was super happy. I guess spin the story like...we should all play together instead of against each other? Or "its a small world"?

    Ah here's a screenshot btw. Fate has plans for all of us.



    I only get to play like 10 games a week, so being able to play with a forum member coincidentally turned out to be very very fun.

    As other pointed out :

    1 : Cover is great, looking very professional
    2 : Contents is somehow weird to read, many background and boxes color clashes and it makes it unconfortable
    --> Suggestion, try a typo / layout as in a old Newspaper (I'm thinking Western "wanted" poster type if you get what I mean), black and white for confort, with titles and boxes homemade for a paladins universe theme

    3 : I'd like more wall of text and less clickable content but I also acknowledge the fact that is is a newsletter and not a newspaper (But I personnaly like the newspaper format more, might be more work tho)

    4 : Content choice is good IMO, it represents well what is going on lately and the hot topics.

    Cheers.
