The tickets are first come, first serve, so get in touch with me if you'd like to reserve yours. You can pick up tickets by meeting me in front of the arena entrance at 3pm, before the game. If you need to get the tickets another time, please contact me and we'll work something out. We realize this is sort of late notice, but hope you can all attend! Details: Hershey Bears vs. Rochester Americans Sunday, November 15th Food: 3:30-5pm behind section 102 in Coco's Den party room. Game Time: 5pm Thanks Alecia! Edit: There are only 20 tickets available, and 5 of them are already spoken for, so get them while you can! -Jimmy El Presidente

  5. While most of us will be focused on Extra Life on November 7, it might be worth sparing a glance or two at the Mass Effect and BioWare Twitter accounts. There will be opportunities throughout the day for people to win a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One emblazoned with the N7 logo. "I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite console on the Citadel" - Commander Shepard (probably) BioWare will also be streaming the entirety of the Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC as part of their Extra Life charity stream. All donations to the stream will be matched by the company up to their $10,000 goal. They'll be giving away a number of prizes directly on their stream, as well as taking audience input as to what decisions they should make throughout their stream. They will start streaming on Twitch this Saturday at 9am PST.

  7. Alright, unfortunately, I was unable to make it yesterday, so I missed out on the compiling of the events going down on Extra Life. So, I figured I'd do my part and make a board where we gather all the events going on into one thread for everyone to see. There's only two I know of, one by the Scarlet of the Ottawa guild and another from the Let's Game Ottawa group. Anything else or is that all?

  11. Hello, my name is Jonathan, AKA agentc0re. I set out to make a simple, web based alert/display for when someone new donates to you. I hate installing a program just for that and some sites require twitch app authorization. On the other hand, what about YouTube Gaming? Well if you know how to add a browser source to your streaming client then this might be the solution for you. http://extralifealerts.com What is Extra-Life Alerts? Well my web app parses the JSON data from your participant page. It then takes the most recent person and first displays them, then it waits and checks every 5 seconds for a new donor. Currently the only feature I have up is, displaying the donor which shows Name:Amount:Message. It will fade in this information then fade it out. Currently the text color is white surrounded by a black border. No CSS is needed. I've already set the BG to transparent and hopefully provided all the options you need to make your custom URL for donation alerts unique and awesome! Instructions to set it up in OBS are on the website as well. The setup is probably very similar to any other streaming software. Current known Issues: If messages are long, they might get cut off. Not enough testing to figure out how to deal with this problem. This issue is resolved by turning on the marquee effect.It takes a while to load at start because of a wait time i had to add to hide text, long story, and then it waits another 5 seconds to run through the operation.Future plans (not in any order): Change ability for text alignmentChange text sizeChange fade in/out timesAlways on screen featureAdd custom alert soundchange font & border colorchange wait time to check between new donationsAdd Google Font API for EffectsAdd a marquee scrolling effectA bit about why I did this and why I participate in Extra-Life. When I was eight, I tore my thumb off. I was taken to our Primary Children's Hospital by the University of Utah. We were an extremely poor family and there was no way we could afford the surgery. But due to donations and such, or at least I believe it worked this way, my surgery was covered for. Two surgery's later, my thumb was reattached. To this very day my thumb is very functional. It's amazing the things you take for granted had you not had a thumb. Im so very thankful to the doctors who were able to reattach it for me. It's amazing how far medicine has come in the last 30yrs. If you fill the need there are links to donate to my donor page or straight to me. Donations are obviously optional.

  15. I recently ran into someone who was very interested in the Twich streaming side of things in regards to Extra Life. He didn't know about Extra Life but used to be a part of the MLG circut and knew the value of Twitch. He had some questions I didn't know how to answer and I figured Rick could, and that this might benefit others. Twitch is a partner. I know that much, and that they put a huge focus on Extra Life on game day. Also..they're on our shirts this year when we hit our $200 goal. So cool. However, if I were trying to explain the partnership with Twitch in an effort to recruit someone how could I best pitch it? How many people viewed the Extra Life marathon during Twitch last year? It's going to be even bigger this year, what is the anticipated reach for 2015? I'm guessing at least 2x the 2014 numbers. How cool in general is this partnership with Twitch? How can I explain how insanely awesome it is that Extra Life is featured during our 24 hour marathon? Also...any other fun stats/info on the partnership would be great. Thanks!!
  16. Members, on the weekend of October 2-4, Extra Life will be celebrating Tabletop Appreciation Weekend. Here is the link to the official announcement. http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1210 I would like to gauge interest in holding a guild event on this day. I am going to inquire with the eSports Arena to see if we could have some space to do a guild event at their facility, but given their weekend schedule, there are no guarantees they won't already have an event planned. If you would like to take the reigns and plan or host a tabletop event, please let me know! I would love to see something planned for this weekend if possible.
  17. Did you miss the meeting last month? No problem, we got your covered in the October 2015 edition of the ELOC News, Extra Life Orange County's video newsletter. This month, with a little Halloween flavor!

  19. It took me a long time to get involved in the wider gaming community. My brother and I both gamed while I was growing up of course, as did many of our friends. When I was a kid that was all that mattered since the internet wasn't yet a part of everyday life. Later though, when others were excited to play the new online games and join online communities, I tended to avoid MMO's and forums. It wasn’t so much that I was inherently asocial, it just felt safer and more comfortable keeping to myself and playing single player games. Besides, I didn't feel I had anything worth saying to anyone outside my own circles. These days, I write a blog, contribute to a website, am on a weekly podcast, try to be active on game forums, and was excited to write this piece for the Extra Life community. I have a voice and try to share my thoughts in both writing and speech. I enjoy connecting with other gamers, and this very community is one reason I can say that now. 2013 was the first year I heard about Extra Life. A friend of mine mentioned on his livestream that he would be participating and told stories about the previous year. The idea of gamers getting together for an amazing cause like Children's Miracle Network Hospitals sounded like something I'd love to do. There was only one problem: I'd never streamed, and wanted to do more than just hang out during his stream. With plenty of trepidation, I started learning the basics of streaming and was soon practicing for the main event. Streaming had always sounded like fun, which was why I tended to guest on other streams. But running a stream myself? So many things could go wrong, and I could end up looking foolish. I made myself push through my nervousness, knowing this was for something bigger than me. In doing so, I realized the community was clearly willing to help. I wasn't the only one focused on the larger goal. As the day approached, I received advice and good wishes from gamers I'd never met before. “For the kids,” bridged the gap to make an instant connection. I noticed we weren't just supporting a charity, we were supporting each other. To my surprise, I started to see a side of gaming I'd been missing out on. My stream, incidentally, went just fine. I had to close it off a couple hours early due to my laptop wanting to overheat, but the rest of it was perfectly enjoyable. My only regret is forgetting to save it before it was auto-deleted by Twitch. I felt good about what I'd done, not just in collecting donations, but in becoming a part of such a supportive community. In 2014, I didn't quite trust my laptop to hold up for a 24 hour stream. I planned to spend the day doing a group run of DC Universe Online with some friends instead. While that worked fine for hours, we had to end early due to the streamer's health. I was at a complete loss for what to do. I couldn't stream, didn't have anything planned, but didn't want to stop the marathon. Instead of heading to bed, I logged into my favorite MMO, The Secret World. At the time I didn't know many people there, but I knew a number of players were participating in Extra Life. I thought I'd tag along with them, if I could find them and they let me. If not, at least I knew I could play the game for hours. When I asked in chat if anyone was still running, the response was immediate warmth and welcome. Once again, players I didn't even know were jumping over themselves to include me and congratulate me for participating. The beginning of my connections in this game wound up being incredibly important, as those connections are one reason I later auditioned for, and became a part of, the Beyond the Veil podcast! This year, I have a new computer for marathon day. I'll be running with my friends over in The Secret World and co-streaming on my own channel. I am comfortable in belonging and excited for another chance to support the cause. I know I can reach out to other runners for support and friendship, and when I do stream I know I can ask and receive helpful advice. Extra Life is always primarily about the kids. It's an amazing thing we do each year, and it's important to keep the real goals in mind. What we do during these gaming marathons makes a very real difference to very real people. Many children of my friends and family have been helped greatly by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. I can't say enough about how valuable supporting them is. Still, the way the community members open up and support each other is also a beautiful thing to see and an important aspect to recognize. While we're doing something great for the kids, we can do something great for each other, too. As I get ready for Extra Life 2015, I'll be taking some time to welcome new participants and appreciate the old. I hope we not only break our high score for donations this year, but also bring a record number of new gamers into a supportive and friendly community. View full article

  23. Since the beginning of the Extra Life movement, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and the ESA Foundation have been prolific partners. I’m thrilled to announce the kickoff of the 2015 ESA Foundation Extra Life Challenge. This is a chance for you to unlock a huge donation for your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital by doing what you do best; Playing Games to Heal Kids. This year, The ESA Foundation is offering up two $30,000 grants, for a total of $60,000 in life-saving funds! The Internet simply does not have enough bandwidth for us to fully transmit our gratitude. THANK YOU, ESA FOUNDATION! Two Winning Hospitals A donation of $30,000 is up for grabs for the hospital whose Extra Life gamers raise the most money overall by 9am CDT on Sunday, November 8th. Last year, that went to UCSF Beniof Children’s Hospital in the San Francisco/Oakland area. This particular “prize” favors bigger cities. Which is why… A second donation of $30,000 will be unlocked for the hospital whose gamers raise the most money per capita by 9am on Sunday, November 8th. For this we simply divide the number of dollars raised by the population of that market. Last year, the mighty Extra Lifers of Austin, Texas brought home this prize for local kids at Dell Children’s Medical Center. Nitty Gritty A hospital can only receive one of the two donations amounts.All funds submitted through our website prior to the deadline will be counted instantly towards the 2015 ESA Foundation-Extra Life Challenge.If you are submitting offline funds (Checks) they must be received no later than Monday, November 2nd in order to be processed and credited to your hospital before the deadline.Funds can be received after the deadline, they just won’t count towards this challenge. Make the biggest difference Obviously the more you can raise for sick and injured local kids in your area, the better your hospital’s chances of getting these critical funds. An even better way to skew the odds in your favor is to simply recruit more people in your community to join Extra Life. Did you know that the average donation is $35, but the average amount raised by someone you recruit is $100? If you can get a friend to join Extra Life, you’ll be making triple the impact for this challenge and For The Kids. About ESA Foundation Created by the American entertainment software industry, the ESA Foundation works to make a positive difference in the lives of America’s youth. ESA Foundation creates educational opportunities by providing scholarships to the next generation of industry innovators and supporting organizations that leverage entertainment software and technology. The proceeds from a signature annual fundraiser, Nite to Unite – for Kids and other charitable initiatives support this mission.
