Weekly craves feature
The forum comes with all the classic forum features: You can chat, discuss releases, share mixes, videoes articles etc. The originality of our forum however, starts with the “weekly craves” feature:
We reward active users who creates content on the forum. Every user starts as “Craver”, but will increase in title when providing content. When you increase in title, new channels with exclusive content and better craves will open up for you. The more you participate, the more you will get out of the forum. In the “inner circle of SHY” you will find our most precious and exclusive music + our dearest craves. You know, those rare and forgotten craves where there is no sound clip available online even.
The “Craver League Game” is our main feature. It’s a fun, addictive, strategic, inspirational and game based on the love for craving new music.
Rules: 12 teams, 1-3 persons pr. team compete against each other in a league system. Take a look on the example below:
In this first round we have handpicked the teams to secure maximum musical quality, but we want you all to participate in the future!
All teams meet each other in weekly matches.
Per round, each team compile snippets of 3 tracks and glue them together into one complete track. All these matches gets presented on the forum in a visually pleasing system.
Its important to know that the music each team compile is 100% up to themselves. It could be a vinyl snippet, a youtube clip or a Beatport preview and even their own track. The pool of music to choose from is limitless.
Imagine how inspirational it will be to get presented 12 * 3 snippets of high quality craves weekly. Or lets put it this way; thats actually over 1 hour ++ of proper dance music craves every week. And notice that these teams will not provide you with soulless fillers, no no…In order to win the league, they need to provide those superior gems that got the X factor.
Each week, our members on the forum vote on which team per match they liked best. Teams gets 3 points for winning, 1 point for draw and 0 for loosing just like in soccer. Each vote count as goals. So points + goal difference sums up a league table, which in the end crowns the winner of Craver League.
The price of this first Craver League season is not completely decided yet, but we can assure you it will be a game changing one for the winner.
The game of Craver League however, will live on. Teams will relegate and new teams will promote. New players will join the existing teams + form new teams and the world of Craver League will just increase.
We are currently planning on how new players can entry the game, but it will somehow be trough a frequent single match knockout cup system. Here players goes heads up against each other in a knock out cup. Also players from the teams can join this cup, and prices for winners will be inspiring.
This is just the start. There will come more features and inspiring competitions on the forum as our brand progress. So seriously, look for a way in to the SHY Social Club and sign up, you will not regret it…. Shadow Hide The Hunter!
