TG Swag

Perhaps it has been tried before and didn't work, but I would think that having a small "store" here at TG would generate some revenue. Twin Galaxies hats and t-shirts would surely sell. I for one would buy at least one.

    I agree - merch works be cool. I remember Jace publishing photos of “pirated” merch like hoodies with the TG logo. That was a few years ago though while TG was positing itself in the eSports space. With the closure of the H1Z1 league, I think TG is looking to retool. With Rick Fox on board, I suspect there will be a TG 2.0 and at that time we may see official merch.

    Twin Galaxies also has a nice logo.

    Printable certificates would also be cool when you break a record. I would think they could get that to autofill. I imagine many records would not be certificate worthy, but some would. They could then sell official frames and/or plaques n the store as well.

    I agree, and there was a certificate service that was launched but suspended maybe 10 months later? The goal was high quality expensive certificates, but maybe with a reimagined service it could be more affordable.

    They could even be ones you print yourself. For the system it would be nothing but digital. We than choose how much to invest in paper quality.

    I've offered to do some small scale manufacturing on some stuff, stickers, etc, I'm not into "making money", but I definitely think it's "stuff" us regulars would want to have!

    i'm not sure if you figured out what a trouble maker i am by now. but some years ago, someone purposely only got 100 points in street fighter 1, they were actually really good, but they did it to draw attention. for years it was the record. how hillarilus is that, thte board is somehwat rare. due to pure random luck, before i joined tg i was just looking for cool boards and sf1 came up, i didnt seek it out, it was just the coolest board at the time. i actually got a twin galaxies certificate for my 100 pts on street fighter 1 which was a certificate at the time. some were outraged it was an insult to everything tg stood for, others agreed it was hillarious. regardless. i have the cert to this day

    The only outrage about it was that you nagged TG admin about it and got your joke certificate before people who had been patiently been waiting months for theirs.

    truth be told i'm on your side there. i dont think its fair the squeeky wheel gets the grease. i mean sure i'll use that to my advantage knowing thats how it works,but at the same time i think its total bs the polite quite membres get screwed.

    almost makes you wonder how the old cheaters got away with it am i right? loud voices win. look over the old forums. what we're learning now is nothing new. even back in the day people called out the bs. but heroes like roy that called out the corruption were demonized, whereas jace to his credit alllows the calls out of corruption

    I would be in for a big mug. Similar or ever bigger than the ones Starbucks has/had. Most of the YouTubers have a merchandise store. There are dedicated websites just for that and they do all the transactions, printing and shipping, if needed.

    Are you saying there are still no TG certificates right now? That is a major bummer and needs to be changed asap.

    Yes, in a way Roy got a short end of the stick. No, he wasn't perfect (but who is) and there were questionable things that he had done (how would you feel, if you were being played for years and you were going uphill against "the system"?). His videos about the cheating were spot on. I believed him back then (I still should have a backup of them somewhere) and not many people wanted to do that. His reasoning about the big/small trackball and dip setting in MC was sound.
