IGGalaxy v1.0 Competitive Gaming Platform Update 11/01/2020


IGGalaxy v1.0 Competitive Gaming Platform Update 11/01/2020

We hope everyone liked their early Christmas present, and enjoyed the roll out of IGGalaxy v1.0 public beta on the 24th December. Since then our development team have been busy tweaking certain functionality, while fixing a few minor bugs that arose while we hosted our first tournaments on the new platform. Our team sacrificed time with their families over the holidays, working restlessly to continue our momentum into 2020.

Now that the foundational infrastructure of IGGalaxy has been deployed, we are now excited to share our development as we grow. We will aim to provide platform updates as we continuously deploy features, fixes and improvements to IGGalaxy. As with everything we do, we want to be as transparent as possible and ensure our growing community is informed about some of the work going on behind the scenes.

Feedback - let’s improve our competitive gaming platform together!

Our community has provided invaluable feedback already and we greatly appreciate it. It is through this feedback system we can truly listen to our users and act appropriately. Our goal has always been to co-create IGGalaxy with our community and without them we’d be nothing.

With this in mind, no idea is a bad idea, where we encourage users to share any ideas on our feedback system on the platform. Reporting bugs/issues you encounter is also greatly appreciated.

  1. Follow instructions through either Google Authenticator, Authy or similar 2FA provider by:
    1. scanning QR code or copy ‘Secret’ into 2FA provider.
    2. Enter code provided by 2FA device;
    3. Verify Token (before the code expires)

We have also implemented geofencing as part of our recent enhanced security measures to enhance account protection for our community. Geofencing prevents unknown IP addresses from logging into your account, adding a further layer of security. Your IP address will need to be ‘whitelisted’ by following the instructions below:

You’ll see the below message on your first login to the platform since the update, or when you’re accessing the site from a new IP:

Unknown IP login notificationUnknown IP login notification

You will receive an email like this below, where you have to click ‘Verify Login’. Please check your spam/junk folders.

Verify your IP address email - must do to login to the IGGalaxyVerify your IP address email - must do to login to the IGGalaxy

Once verified, you will see this message, where you’ll be able to log in:

IP whitelisted notification once click ‘verify login’ in emailIP whitelisted notification once click ‘verify login’ in email

Final Message

Lastly, we have a dedicated team of admins, strong community presence and now a new company email address, which will be monitored by our IT security personnel. Please never share your Private Keys or passwords with anybody, especially those claiming to be working for Intergalactic Gaming; we will never request for this information from you.

If you have any concerns about security please contact us on security@iggalaxy.com.

The impact coronavirus is having on gaming

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to disrupt all aspects of life. With sporting events cancelled until further notice, even many esports circuits are postponing live events that have already been scheduled. As industries begin to temporarily close, which brings with it great levels of disruption, it is advised by governments and health officials that the best form of cure is to self-quarantine and thus reduce the risk of the infection spreading further.
