Open Lobby, Contest, Poll Results

Hey guys it's Mike!

In this post I'll be covering the 3 things mentioned in the title in order.

The open lobby will be explained in the contest video but basically it'll be on Saturday, October 2, 2010 at a currently unknown time for a currently unknown game. The last 2 things will be revealed throughout the week on this blog so make sure to check back in. The open lobby will be both on XBox 360 and PC simultaneously unless one has less than the other. The lobby/lobbies WILL be filmed and uploaded on to our channel.

The contest that celebrated our 500th subscriber is coming to an end in about 2 hours so if you have an entry you'd like to send in send it in NOW! I'll be filming the video announcing the winners probably tomorrow and it'll be uploaded probably late Saturday or Sunday. One thing I find quite cool is that when the contest video was first posted we had around 522 subs and now a month later when the contest is over we're at 722. I was hoping we'd be over 800 by the time the contest ended but oh well, we're on our way regardless.

The recent poll was: "What's your favorite game that Vigil posts on?" with the following results: Left 4 Dead 2 and Counter-Strike Source both at 29% (5 votes), Modern Warfare at 17% (3 votes), StarCraft 2 and Other at 11% (2 votes) and Alien Swarm receiving no votes. This information lines up perfectly with our channels Insight information with Left 4 Dead 2 and Counter-Strike Source dominating our most viewed charts followed by StarCraft. All of this, of course, prior to the launch of Halo: Reach which has all but subtly swept some of our older popular videos out. This poll was also really helpful in confirming what people want to see on Vigil. We'll try and get some more CSS and L4D2 out to you guys, especially with the new DLC being released in 2 weeks for L4D2.

This week's poll is "What games should we play at the open lobby?". The top 2 will probably be the ones that we choose. However, if a game we don't like or not many people have is a winner we may switch it out. This poll will end on Friday, October 1, 2010 just in time for the open lobby. The system in the brackets represents what we'll play it on. If you'd like to vote for an XBox 360 and PC game than all you need to do is vote on 2 separate computers.

Thanks everyone.
