VOG: The Game Wrapup for August, 2012

VOG: The Game Wrapup for August, 2012

Delayed a few days due to a very successful Dragon*Con, we now have the stats that the entire Internet has been waiting for - the results of August's iteration of VOG: The Game. A third month of the game yielded our third straight unique winner, although a former champion made a very compelling run up until the end.

Some Stats


August was a slow month in comparison to our Summer explosion. We had less visits, and therefore less Participants. So, these numbers are a little bit lower than usual:

  • Comments: 24 Participants left 166 Comments, with Flaco_Jones leaving the most at 59. The Horde House superfan left TigerClaw in the dust back in second place, with 27.
  • Likes: 19 Participants received 104 likes, with TigerClaw and Flaco_Jones both receiving 17 likes each. PodCulture came in second with 13 of his comments liked.
  • Liking Others: 16 Participants liked other people's comments, with Flaco_Jones being the most generous on the thumbs up with 34 liked comments. Misty came in second with 15 likes given.
  • Checkins: Ramaditya checked into the most shows - 18, to be exact. Flaco_Jones checked into 17 shows. TravisDonovan, TigerClaw, ObiWanJabronE, and immortal_king checked into all live events (including the Mars Curiosity Landing) while DarkTetsuya, Misty, and skie checked into 11. Ramaditya checked into 16 podcasts, Misty checked into 15, and PodCulture and Flaco_Jones checked into 14. An honorable mention goes to Misty, who checked into the podcast episodes of ALL 11 live shows she attended! That's passphrase dedication!
  • Loot: 18 Participants received 74 pieces of Loot, not counting the First Time Visitor and Mars Curiosity Landing loot. Flaco_Jones lead the charge (thanks to his generosity) with 9 pieces of Loot, while Bobby Blackwolf, act_deft, TigerClaw, and criticalmyth each stashed 7.
So, sure, the numbers are a little bit lower, but it was just as fun, right? RIGHT?

What's Next?


If you recall last month, I teased a new feature on the site that has not happened yet. We're hoping to unleash it "When It's Done" on Valve Time. Some of our content creators have been briefed on it, and they're all very excited for it, and the groundwork it is laying for other new interactive site features.

The reason that the new feature has been shelved is because we have been busy promoting VOG to various entities out there on the Internet, and forging partnerships that we hope will grow our community for years to come. We have pretty much established our presence at Dragon*Con 2013 with an official event in the Podcasting Track, so you can go ahead and make your plans now. We also have been approved as a Media Partner for the upcoming Southeastern International Entertainment & Game Expo in October - more information about that later.

The Leaderboards


This is it...What you've been waiting for - the results for August. As we stated before, we have a new #1, and that is Horde House superfan Flaco_Jones, who surged ahead of our first ever winner TigerClaw and ran away with the top spot by 16 Points!

Is it bad that I continue to impress myself with how well I do in the rankings/points earned each month?

But yeah. Dragon*Con '13? Count me in. :3

Here's to a new number 1 in September! I won't be able to keep up on all the podcasts like I did in August, but I'll still try and keep the comments and the conversation going for the ones I have time to listen to. I hope more people can join in as well.

I try to, but sometimes I forget the passphrase and since I'm driving I can't write it down.

Will there be new loot added? I have 3 backpacks now. It's not a complaint or anything - just a general question incase you do another state of VOG address broadcast.

Still loving the content you put out. I check in to every show, and I listen to it.

Keep up the great work.

We got behind on the Loot generation, so hopefully we'll be adding more soon. We're actually seeking people to help DESIGN LOOT - there's a thread on the forums about it - and you even get points each time someone is awarded your loot that you designed!

I will state that, when the new loot is created, that's the loot you'll get first. Under the hood, we randomly drop a piece of loot that you have the least amount of. So when we make new ones - those are the ones you'll get first.
