We’d like to welcome everyone, new and returning, to the new Show Nation! Right off the bat (ha!) you’re going to notice some changes. Let’s go over some the new stuff.
The Community Market gets a face lift.
It’s no secret that the majority of the traffic here on The Show Nation goes straight to the Community Market. Or goal was to streamline the search for players as much as possible. Right off the bat (puns!) you’ll be presented with a way to search directly for the player you’re looking for. Start by typing in the name of the player or item you’re looking for and the search will drop down the results as you type. From there, you’ll have quick access to the player (or item), and also some quick info on the card itself, including Rarity, OVR, and series.
Looking for more of an advanced search? Maybe you want to find that specific player with an attribute over 82... To access the advanced filters, simply click on the links right below the search bar. From there, you’ll be able to search for the specifics, and if you’d like to save those specific search filters for later use, you may do that as well. Simply give the search a name, and click save.
Those Lovely Forums…
The forums have been refined. We’ve enabled “Direct Replies” for more focused conversation and custom avatars (check your profile!) Also, don’t forget to Like the posts you feel contribute the most!\
The Bug Reporter is Back.
Help us squash those pesky bugs! Find something odd? Glitch on the ball field? Stats not adding up? Send it our way using the Bug Reporter. Just click that little bug icon in the top right and you’ll be presented with a form that will be sent directly to the QA team. Try to include as many details as possible.
Wait, where’s all the other stuff?
As you may know, one of our main priorities this year was a full rewrite of our online infrastructure. In turn, we’d also have to rewrite how The Show Nation would talk to the game servers and some of the previous features were not able to be carried over "as-is" without being redesigned for the website as well. We know this is an inconvenience to some, but fear not - we do plan to reintroduce those features in the coming months.
Ticket Counter, Universal Profile, Inventory, Search Gamer, Leaderboards, Roster Updates, and Challenge of the Week are all in the pipeline and we’re getting them ready to roll out as soon as we can. Lots of more features are planned as well, and you'll be seeing some minor adjustments made along the way, so stay tuned!
We’d love to hear your feedback - jump in the forums and let us know what you think.
See you on the diamond!
