I'm looking for a website built for a gaming community, based on the INVISION POWER BOARD software. The game is the upcoming MOBA by Blizzard Entertainment, Heroes of the Storm ([url removed, login to view]). A good example of what I want the website to include in terms of features is www.solomid.net. [url removed, login to view] is exactly the kind of platform I'm looking for, it is built for the game League of Legends and I'm looking for get something very similar to that but for Heroes of the Storm. The sections I need are:
- A home page for news
- A page for the team roster (Our community has a team) which should include a space for write information about each player as well as a picture. (Something like this: [url removed, login to view])
- An integrated forum page
- A page for us to showcase our player's livestreams. This should include the direct link to the [url removed, login to view] stream as well as a small description for the stream.
- The guides section. This will be the main interest focus on the website for the general public coming to check it. This is where our players will write the featured guides for each hero in the game. There should also be support for user-submitted guides meaning any registered user can write their own guide and submit it to us for approval. The guides should have a rating system.
The guide writing and editing page should include all the support that writing a MOBA hero guide requires. What is offered by solomid at [url removed, login to view] is exactly what I'm looking for, in a version adapted to heroes of the storm. The whole [url removed, login to view] website uses an invision power board system to manage the user registration / login and runs the guide section as some sort of an invision power board add-on, that's what I'm looking for in an adapted version to heroes of the storm.
Anything specific to the game could be arranged between me and the freelancer later on but it would be greatly appreciated if the freelancer is already familiar with gaming and the MOBA genre or even with league of legends or heroes of the storm.
When working on this please do make an account on [url removed, login to view] and go to their "write a guide" section so you can see how I want that to be made, with all the options it must have for the writer to easily create a quality guide. Another exemple of a guides website for this kind of games is www.mobafire.com.
