Hello everyone, we've just released the new Community Site[www.aceofspades.com]
below is a list of everything you can do on there.
First of all is the change of Forum Software, we have moved from ‘vBulletin’ to ‘Invision Power Board’, the change was decided because we believe it will allow us to provide a better service to you guys through a more flexible platform that we can manage ourselves. It has also allowed us to utilise plugins that will add much desired features.
- Community Home added. The new number one destination for all of your community needs!
- Featured News
- Community News
- Community links & Fan Pack
- A dedicated area which will highlight Community Creations
- Latest Activity – find out what’s going on via this Calendar feed
- Current Hot Topics
- Ace of Spades TV – The best video content from our community video makers
- Staff updates/statuses
- For Clans we have added a dedicated ‘Clan HQ’ which will be the hub for clan pages providing a much needed home within the community.
- This will allow Clans to post as if it was their own Forum
- Ranks can also be assigned to each member of a clan so a ‘Chain of Command’ can be established
- Through customisation Clans can now develop their own identity
Recruitment applications can be managed through the closed group settings & your own recruit/application forum
- We want to cater for the full range of clans; casual/social, creative, and competitive clans, so each clan can easily identify themselves as such.

- Featured Blogs – If you have an idea for an interesting Ace of Spades Blog then you can pitch it to us for the chance to get your own blog or a group blog. So get your thinking caps on!
- The entire Forum Index has been revamped also, providing a modern, sleek and much cleaner layout.
- The top level of the forums has been cut down to just three categories so you won’t have to scroll as much, and can find what you need quickly.
A massive upcoming feature is our ability to ‘Self-host’ a variety of different competitive activities right here on the site, we will be putting this system to good use very soon with a fun Ace of Spades Cup for teams to participate in.
- This will finally allow for the much requested clan ladder our Clan Ambassadors, leaders, and members have been dreaming of
- Both player run and officially run headline tournaments are now possible
- Anyone can register a team regardless of whether they are in a clan or not. So gather your closest friends and prepare for war!
We will be actively checking for any noticeable bugs that may cause an issue, and improving the site over time, but feel free to give us feedback over in the feedback forum.
We hope you enjoy the new Ace of Spades Community home, and here’s to 2014!
Sally, Chris & Shaun
