I was just thinking, would it make more sense to show the odds first, then Han saying "Never tell me the odds", then the badge? I think it would be stronger.

Odd ---> Han Solo ---> Badge

I usually don't like animated avatars, but definitely like the "odds->Solo->Anzeless badge" idea. We'd have to keep the odds statements a little shorter than some of the suggestions though, remember how big the avatars are.

I really like the badge KingsKnight made. Any way to make "Anzeless" slightly more noticeable though? Maybe the crown a little smaller and "Anzeless" a little bigger? Maybe it's noticeable enough, I'm not sure.

Yeah I think it's not noticeable enough. I can keep working on it tonight. Should there be a fourth picture in the gif that says or shows something about playoffs? Maybe the Stanley Cup logo or something? Or is that obvious already?

It's gonna be tough to make "Anzeless" any bigger because the width is already almost maxed out to the edge of the image. You could increase the font height a little perhaps.

How about putting a Stanley Cup image on the "Odds" page, maybe a faint background image behind the text?

That would work really well I think, and would save an extra image to keep the gif smaller.

I took out the word "Kings" (I figure everyone would know who we are) and split up "Anzeless" to make it bigger and more obvious. It's the only way to make it larger and fit it into the shape.

The original is better, IMO. Its more elegant looking, and its higher subtlety appeals to me. Just my two cents of course - the overall concept is still money.

Another option as RonSwanson suggested is to make "Anzeless" taller. I tried that out. I'll put it next to the other two, plus and idea for the background (sort of scratched ice surface):



1. Original
2. Took out "Kings" and split "Anze less"
3. Same as original, but made "Anzeless" Taller
4. Same as 3 but with an "ice" background

Also playing around with the "odds" image and what it might look like using the above image and some sample "odds" from the other pages. Not sure about the rounded edges, but I thought it might look good.

#4 with the rounded edges looks terrific. Good idea(s).

I just realized the new significance my avatar has now that Anze is out.

I like the ideas in here though. Good stuff

Sample avatar. RonSwanson and I have been working on these. If you like these, we can start claiming which "odds" people want.

JJ to get a + rating, 200:1
Stoll to hit net, 20:1
Westgarth to get a shot 1000:1
Simmonds to go offsides 5:1
Dustin Brown to dive......guaranteed
Dustin Penner throws a Hit 50-1
Terry Murray changes the lines 2-1
Kings PP scores a goal 30-1
Peter Harrold to touch the ice, 500-1
Kyle Clifford kills your enforcer, 3-1
You yell, "Who the **** is Richardson?", 10-1
Trevor Lewis solo kills a penalty, 50-1
Greene's helmet to come off, 10:1
Asking yourself, "is Rob Scuderi playing?", 15:1
Doughty hip checking the **** out of you, 50:1
Scoring more than 3 goals, 150:1
Quick letting in a softy, 20:1
Smyth passing to the wrong team, then tripping with no one else around him, 12:1
Ryan Smyth to attempt a wraparound, 2:1
Jamie Kompon says "pucks to the net", 2:1
Drew Doughty goes coast-to-coast, 4:1
The PP actually working 53162 to 1...
Brown......fails to clear it, Evens
Brown Falls Down O/U 5.5 -115
Jim Fox says "Whoa!", 1:1
Doughty makes a risky play at the blue line, 20:1
Kings pass instead of shoot, 10:1
Kings pass up a shot from the slot to shoot from the corner instead, 4:1
Moller gets more than 3 strides with the puck, 40:1
Kopitar comes back in time for the playoffs, 1,000,000:1
Bob calls the wrong name, 6:1
