The RB Battles team is looking for developers who are interested in integrating challenges, Easter eggs, or anything special into their game, to participate in the RB Battles Championship Season 2 event later this year! We were huge fans of the Ready Player One Roblox event, and we would love to bring that excitement back to the players!
For reference, check out the Season 1 playlist here: RB Battles Championship | Season 1 (Roblox Tournament) - YouTube
Roblox confirmed they will be offering at least the same level of support as they did for RB Battles Season 1 (ie; event page promotion, exclusive catalog items, link to your games and socials, Roblox social media promotion) and potentially more if developers are involved.
WHAT WE NEED:
Developers that are interested in adding a particular challenge or Easter egg in correlation to the RB Battles Event. It can be a simple challenge/quest or even as complicated as a separate event game mode that our competitors will be competing in for the episode. Imagine this… You’re watching your favorite YouTuber compete in a custom challenge, then right after watching the video premiere, the game updates with this new challenge and you can hop in the game and attempt the challenge yourself! We’re open to creative ideas!
WHAT YOU GET:
By participating in this, you get the opportunity to showcase your game to new players and give players the chance to win exclusive catalog items by playing your game! You’ll also receive promotion from Roblox in various places, as well as the RB Battles videos and descriptions where we will give a call-to-action to complete the challenge in your game.
ROBLOX EVENT SUPPORT:
Here are some of the things we spoke to Roblox about in regards to what is possible with their support of RB Battles and developer involvement if we get enough games on board with the event:
1. RB Battles Games Sort (if enough games are involved)
2. Blog post
3. Event page
4. Social coverage (YT, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
5. In-game notification (Message to all users at launch of program)
6. Game specific metaverse items
7. Orange banner (tentative - Dave approval required)
8. Quest virtual items (For each game)
9. All quests completed virtual items (If a player wins all the virtual items from the games within that “phase” of the tournament, they are awarded an additional virtual item)
10. Community award Item (If x number of players participate and complete the quests, the community is awarded a free virtual item)
So far we already have some games on board for the event including Piggy, Jailbreak, and a few other awesome games, but we would like most, if not all of the games that we choose for competitors to compete in to have some sort of developer involvement for this season!
We’re looking to get started on this right away, because we are looking to record the episodes as soon as we can since they take months to produce, but the event is set to launch mid September.
If you’re interested, feel free to respond to this post with a link to your Roblox game that you would like in the event, briefly explain any ideas you might have for the developer involvement and how you can make it integrate well for this event, and also how soon you can get started! If we like what we see, we will DM you with more details.
Looking forward to it!
