YGG Community Roundup - November 2021
A recap of our biggest achievements and most exciting announcements in November 2021. Written by and for our guild members.
Happy holidays, everyone! The year is almost over and YGG has grown so much. November is busy (as always) for YGG, so shall we get into the news?
Need a guide to help you dive into YGG? Our amazing YGG Country Manager Philippines, Luis Buenaventura, has you covered!
The YGG Guide - a knowledge base for YGG scholars and managers - is available in English, Tagalog, Bisaya, Ilocano and Hiligaynon.
“The Philippines is at an inflection point for crypto adoption, and it's never been more critical to build educational and informational resources for all the newcomers in the space,” said Luis.
If you’re new to the YGG Discord, we created this resource to share everything you need to know about the rules and latest updates. YGG also implemented a tip bot in its Discord and we have been tipping our most active users who constantly show their help and support to our community.
YGG Managers Cup
The YGG Managers Cup has continued through the month of November, with many thrillingly close matches. So far, Axie Alerts PH, Levox Esports and Gotskillz PH have won their spots for Tier 2. Who else will join them?
Axie Infinity had its first tournament in Thailand, November 11 to 13, with 256 participants competing to win their share of a 250 AXS prize pool.
In other Axie news, our Axie Bootcamp continued throughout the month of November, streaming on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9 p.m. SGT. It is definitely the place to go to learn new tips and tricks. Make sure not to miss it!
The community was given a chance to vote for the second step of our YGG Snapshot Governance Vote. With 514 votes for yes, and 14 votes for no, this proposal will enable the formation of the YGG Splinterlands subDAO (YGGSPL). Now, active subDAO members will be able to take part in the management of its assets.
YGG is happy to be among the first guilds to be welcomed into the Sipher-verse to battle it out with other guilds in their Discord competition.
Thetan Arena made a special YGG skin that can be used in-game!
Thank you to Khanh Nguyen (CEO of Thetan Arena) for making this a reality. Thetan Arena is among the first games to recognize YGG with an in-game item that our players can use while showing their YGG pride.
November started off with two AMAs on the same day. AMAs with Laguna Games and our very own YGGSPL subDAO took place on November 12, followed by a special AMA with YGG co-founder Gabby the next day. DeHorizon’s founder, Shane Zhu, then joined us for the last AMA of the month on November 19.
You can replay the full videos for most of our AMAs at the links below.
