MyHawk.org Warhawk PS3 Online Community Site Updated

200°
267w ago - Incognito Studio Director Dylan Jobe unveiled a massive update to MyHawk.org, a Warhawk PS3 Online Community Site as follows today:

Sugaboo's Web site MyHawk.org has been operational for quite some time now and he's just rolled-out a massive update!

Clan Matches & Tournaments, Daily Leader Boards, New graphs, Per-weapon stats, Stats on individual games, Game Calendar and more!

Below is just one example of a player stats page with game calendar.

Based on feedback from our player community, there was always a set of very highly requested community features that Warhawk didn't support "out-of-the-box".

These requests weren't forgotten!!! We were just thinking of the best and most extensible way to roll them out. And since they're community features, it was *critical* for us to develop a solution that would allow all of you guys, our players from around the world, to customize and enhance the Warhawk community for years to come.

We think of it as the democratization of our player community - and yes, it's global so it's not just for American players!

So... I'm not going to spew too much technical schwag at all of you but suffice to say, we now provide you guys with the full, and raw...
