From original announcement:
When Guitar Hero was put on indefinite hiatus, we here at The Hero Feed had a decision to make. Do we put the site on indefinite hiatus as well, or do we continue strong with the community. While we knew the lack of news would make it difficult to manage a Guitar Hero-based site, we’ve been a part of this community for several years now, and we know the strength and devotion that exists in this tight-knit group.
With that very idea in mind, we decided to keep the site as active as we could for the Guitar Hero community. While the numbers have dwindled slightly due to the lack of news, we’ve continued to be impressed with the people that keep up with the series and still play on a consistent basis. With that in mind, I am proud to announce that we will be continuing that notion of “community” through a new monthly Community Night.
Join us as we welcome October 2011 with a little rock and roll (or club music if you want to play DJ Hero)! Representatives of TheHeroFeed.com will be playing Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock all weekend long on the following dates!
Remember: The point of these community nights is to get more people online at a certain time to play games that thrive on people playing together. If you want to play DJ Hero instead, go for it! Try to get more people online on whatever game you want to play by leaving a comment below with your Online ID, what console you’re going to be playing, and what game you want to play! That way, people can join you at the specified time!
Prizes: This time around, we’ll be giving away copies of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock for whatever system you’re playing! How do you win? Simple! Just take part in our community night and tweet about what you’re playing and hashtag it with a big ol’ #GHComm. We’ll randomly choose one winner each night to send a copy of the latest, and possibly greatest, Guitar Hero title!
Special Prize: This time around, Activision is hooking us up! One randomly selected player that tweets #GHComm during any of the three game sessions will be entered to win the grand prize: a pair of the Munitio Modern Warfare 3 Billets 9MM earbuds. These don’t even come out until the end of October, and when they do, they’ll retail for $89.99. Pretty nice prize, huh?
Even if you don’t want to win a prize, still join us for some good ol’ rock and roll! We’ll see you on stage, whether it’s a rock stage or a club stage is up to you! See you in matchmaking!
