    Also, what is the date for their GOTY awards? I looked on their main website but found nothing so just wondering if anyone in the community can help me out so I can plan ahead?

    There isn't an exact date for either one yet but they won't be this month as they're on holiday right now. They'll both happen sometimes in January though.

  • Kyle confirmed January on a Group Stream, not sure if it was the last one. As I understand, Blood is generally in charge of organising and planning Group Streams ahead of time but he left for break quite a while before the last group stream. If I had to bet I'd say it'll be on 15th January, following their probable 2018 Awards stream on the 8th.

  • I do remember them mentioning HOG will be next month. I'm not so sure on a GOTY awards stream though, I believe Jones mentioned recently things would be much different from last year... which is probably for the best. That GOTY discussion last year was draining, both for Allies and audience.

    Just wanted to clarify that the GOTY awards will be a video and not a livestream like last year.

    @hazz3r They all plan and pick out games for the group streams in a monthly meeting. There are no dates for the awards or HOG yet.

  • Yeah, honestly that hadn’t been made super clear to me, I was under the impression that it was going to be a livestream until I read that Patreon post.

    As someone who watches all the streams as regular videos anyway, I can assure people that the deliberations are much more digestible that way. I watched them over the course of a week.

  • So the upcoming January HOG is actually the Q4 one for 2018 still, they're running late a bit. It's been a while since the last one.
