This is very neat work, @VeryQuietly! Yes - This “Monthly Guide” can be a nice ‘B-side’ to the monthly Calendar since most of this information is frequently referred to by many players -new and experienced together.
I’m not good with editing images. So, I can’t help you with this.
But I see that this can be made into a template that can be replicated in batches to reduce monthly workload. This is what I was thinking:
I see that there are 13 different images in that sheet. Out of them 9 seem to be pretty fixed in nature w.r.t. the data in them.
The remaining 4 are the ones in the four corners. Starting from top right corner and going clockwise:
- Atlantis featured hero list
- Challenge Event guide
- Valhalla featured hero details
- HOTM details
For the first one, we have the predictions on the forum which can be used as source of data.
For the second, we know the challenge event rotation and so the appropriate guide that goes
For the fourth, we have the beta threads that clearly tell with HOTM is going to be released for which month. So, info comes from there.
For the third, I’m not sure. I think @Guvnor said somewhere that Valhalla new heroes are released in the same order they were introduced in beta? Maybe some beta tester can provide you the release predictions for each month?
I think maybe if you share this workload with someone else who is willing to take it up, you can create a bulk of calendars (at least till the Valhalla heroes data is available) by appropriately replacing the four corner images. These templates can then be easily modified and released every month.
In fact, once the featured hero order for Valhalla becomes evident (after all the S3 heroes are released)… then you can may be just go ahead and create these monthly guide templates easily for 6-7 months or more in a single-go. They only changes required to them would be the HOTM info that needs to be verified and updated before release of the guide.
Really liked the effort you put into this. Thought I’d share my views on how you can reduce your effort in this endeavour.
Great work, man. Thank you so much for putting in so much effort for providing this to the community. Much appreciated!!
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this Monthly Guide on a regular basis.
