I've been asked a few times now, how some people managed to get custom avatars. While we don't have an upload system, we do allow you to use a service called Gravatar to set up your own avatars. This is a popular system on blogs and lets you automatically have one avatar across a range of sites. Here's how to set it up.

Step 1) Go to Gravatar's website and sign up there using the same email address associated with your MOBAFire account.
Step 2) Follow Gravatar's instructions to set up your custom avatar. If any steps are unclear, refer to the site's Help section.
Step 3) Edit your profile. If you have set yourself up properly on Gravatar, the default MOBAFire logo in the Collection (top left) will have changed to your Gravatar settings. Select it and click Update.

That's it!

Any other Gravatar-enabled sites that you use will also show this new avatar. Enjoy :)

If you already have an avatar on gravatar.com, it may automatically put it as your standard avatar.
