Hello everyone and thanks for reading this blog post in advance.
Ever since RFPW has stopped existing, the core crew behind this great e-Fed has asked me a couple of times why we stopped. I have given my reasons for why that has happened.
They are still to this date willing to help out with creating a grand product.
That being said, I've started to record a mini-episode of Evolution, only involving current and past critical viewers and members of our community, consisting of 4 matches.
We shall evaluate this, and will then decide how to go forward.
It is my intention, that should RFPW return, that it will not be as time-consuming for me as it was, but still host quality that was expected in the past. This requires more from my crew being involved than I had allowed them, which was a lapse in judgement by myself.
Should the test episode be approved, we will also air that for you. See it as a house show!
The votes are in! Evolution 5 was a grand show and is the basis for more to come!
6 votes were casted, of which 1 was invalid (shame!).
From the remaining votes, we now know the winners.
Wrestler of the Show has become.... Rick Kurvers with 40% of the votes.
Match of the Show has become.... Rick Kurvers vs. Damian Valentine with 60% of the votes!
This marks the first time for the current RFPW E-FED World Champion to be Wrestler of the Show, but the second time he was involved in the Match of the Show!
What will occur on Evolution 6? Watch it tonight around 8.30 PM UK / 3.30 PM ET LIVE
at twitch.tv/RFPWNetwork or from our homepage!
today I'm going to inform you about new things coming to RFPW E-FED soon or as of next show.
As of Wednesday at Evolution 6, we will start using a new bot, sponsored by Roy Pierce (thank you!), which will allow key new features to work again or cool new features to be used.
I'll see through it that we enhance the use of this bot throughout weeks to come, with hopefully most of the features ready when we have our 5th Anniversary on March 31st, with the Crossroads PPV!
Want to learn more about the new stuff? Read ahead!
First off, I'll start mentioning the Discord server again! Why? Because we will start using that as well as our fall-out base for direct questions towards management, updates on cards.
We see that our userbase is a split base between Twitter and Discord, but we can program a bot for Discord to give automatic answers, so we don't have to repeat it all the time.
Things such as the matchcard for the next show, as well as basic information on RFPW, hotlinks and so on are programmed in there with commands, ready to be used on cooldown basis.
Secondly, the RFPWBot, which will be used is now up to version 0.1, and has been implemented with the new earning levels for FantaEuro's (channel currency for Twitch) as well as the first three commands set up.
Suggestions for these commands can be given via our Discord or via comment on this post.
The new major thing to be brought back from once ago, is betting. Prior to the match, you'll be able to place bets with your FantaEuro's on who is going to win the match. Those who lose, well... lose and those who win earn additional FantaEuro's to upgrade their CAW. This way we'll get an even more interactive element which is useful for commentary and building storylines as well as more fun for the users.
Next to betting, I'm working on a platform on this site to try and integrate the FantaEuro's into the site for you to select your chosen upgrade and pass it directly on to me, so that I can have it ready for the next recording session.
For now, I want to thank all the new debutants in RFPW as well as the remainers who are supporting the show directly and with a lot of passion, and we couldn't do this without you!
Much love, Jeff
