SuperGames 2014: Who won this year?

August 5th, 2014

supergames2014_emailWith the Football World Cup, Wimbeldon and The Commonwealth Games all a distant memory, the performance marketing industries athletes were looking for somewhere to get their sporting fix. Enter SuperGames 2014!

At Canary Wharf’s Play On Sports, the industry’s toughest and most competitive contenders, including 7thingsmedia, Vouchercloud, PriceGrabber and O2 came together to battle it out and take home glory to their offices.

All eyes were on the Winners trophy as soon as the players arrived. Each we’re given a complimentary MyProtein water bottle from The Hut Group to prepare for the three gruelling hours ahead.

The tournament kicked off with a sea of team branded shirts spread across the five different sports: netball, football, bowls, table tennis and the highly anticipated, dodgeball.

There was some fierce but fair rivalry taking place across all courts, particularly football and dodgeball. A highlight of the day was the all-in-one ‘last man standing’ game of Dodgeball… where all players from the day battle it out solo to find the, well, last man standing.

Towards the end of the day it became apparent that our very own team the aptly named “AWinners” had taken the lead much to our own surprise. As controversial as it seems, rest assured there was no match fixing within a 100 mile radius of the games ;) DSC_1461netballDSC_1503

The final standings were:

1. AWinners (Affiliate Window)

2. Quidco

3. MoniTigers (Monitise)

4.Cloudia Winkleman (VoucherCloud)

5. Guns, Drugs and Money (GDM)

6. Hoops I did it again (Yieldify)

7. Telefonicats (O2)

8. Now TV

9. Ve Are The Champions (Ve Interactive)

9. PG Galacticos (PriceGrabber)

11. In tribute to lost brogues (The Hut Group)

12. In the B-A-G (BuyAGift)

13. Optimus Performance Marketing

14. TopCashback of the net

15. Zanox Global Destroyers

16. Mish Mash

17. Freemax Mafia (Freemax Media)

18. The Ludes (7thingsmedia)

MyProtein kindly donated a hamper of protein powder, a protein shaker, energy bars and supplements to the winning team, who were also gifted the prized gold trophy. There were also prizes by way of champagne and jugs of beer for 2nd & 3rd place, and the last man (Edwyn McFarlane) and woman (7thingsmedia’s Kat Shaw) standing. Lastly, the ominious wooden spoons we’re reluctantly received by The Ludes.

After the winners were announced, it was time to head to the Henry Addington pub for the after party. War stories were exchanged over some well deserved deep fried food (guilt free of course) and plenty of beers to ‘rehydrate’.DSC_1520

When we asked last year who would rob the reigning champions, GDM’s Guns, Drugs and Money of their trophy, we certainly didn’t think it would be our very own team! So the question remains, who thinks they can pinch it from our (somewhat tight) grasp next year?!

I just wanted to drop a note from everyone on the Quidco team to say thanks to you and the team for organising everything Friday! We had a great day and it was another step up from last year, really appreciate the effort you put in to bring it together. Just gutted we were robbed by you in the final… – Fred Cortvriend, Quidco

A big thank you to everyone who attended this year, and made the effort to get into the #supergames14 spirit. Here’s to #supergames15!

    DDoS Downtime Compensation for Publishers

    July 21st, 2014

    Thank you to everyone for your patience while we worked through the recent DDoS issues and the aftermath of these problems.

    This was an unprecedented problem in our history, characterised by huge spikes in traffic volumes to the network that started on Thursday 26th June. The malicious traffic volumes were far in excess of the network’s normal operating parameters and as a result there was disruption to our services.

    Although we have clearly been the victims of a malicious attempt to cause disruption to the network, this does not change the fact that our users were significantly inconvenienced by the disruption. Because of this, we would like to offer compensation to all publishers that might have been affected. Because the disruption was intermittent rather than total, we will calculate the compensation by looking at the performance of each publisher during a comparable normal operating period, highlighting those publishers that have clearly lost out, and compensating them based on what we assume their earnings would have been had the service been running normally.

    Obviously, calculating compensation is not an exact science. However, we hope you’ll appreciate that any technology provider could have been similarly affected by the targeted attacks that were made against us, and it is far from the accepted norm that tech providers, be it in our industry or others, automatically compensate in situations such as this.

    Our determination to compensate users is based on the fact that we do not want Affiliate Window users to lose out on earnings as a result of any system-related issue – regardless of its cause.

    While DDoS attacks are deliberate and malicious criminal acts that are difficult to prevent, we are making some significant changes to our systems in an effort to minimise disruption if such an issue happens again. These include building an early warning system that all our partners will have access to. We have also launched a dedicated Twitter Feed for us to communicate system related issues. Please follow @AffwinAlerts for these updates.

    All affiliates that we calculate are due for compensation will have the amounts added directly to their accounts by the close of business on Monday 21st July. If you would like to contact us regarding the compensation or anything else related to these issues then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me directly.

    Kind Regards
    Anthony Clements
    Director, Client Services
