teamRDYK Welcome SMN Indians and Dream Team 2.0 to the Family!

We have a number of clans who apply to join the family. Our community members take time to learn more about each clan, see what they’re about, and most importantly ensure that they will fit into our developed culture. Needless to say, we turn a lot of clans down from being listed as part of our team!

Having said that, these two clans are our latest additions in joining this community!

SMN Indians and Dream Team 2.0 — WELCOME!!

The Removal of Da Bomb and Terra Bomber from our Community

To preface this, I want to make sure it is absolutely clear that teamRDYK and the community we are developing is 100% FAIR PLAY. Any deviations from Supercell Terms of Service is obviously a no-no. While members of Da Bomb and Terra Bomber may have found themselves displaced from the teamRDYK family, those who were not partaking were and continue to be allowed to move into other clans within the family.

With the dust now settled, I want to offer full transparency on the events that led to some clan leadership changes, the departure of LadyB, and the removal of Terra Bomber from being part of our Team. We recently learned that multiple individuals were attempting to poach members from clans within our family.

This was done by some two-faced individuals who fooled even myself. The grief was too much for what had happened, and LadyB decided to leave the family entirely. Perhaps one day she will be back, there was no bad blood or ill will – It was her own decision. Terra Bomber lost it’s Leadership (LadyB) overnight and doomaster is attempting to pick up the pieces. Him and Lackyshu are fighting the good fight in putting it back together, and we are in early talks to establish their new clan within our family upon members moving over. If that happens, time will tell.

While the amount of trolls we have received has grown ever higher, it was decided to enact a plan that would essentially firewall or close off the #lobby as well as other channels to individuals without an assigned role. This would allow us to vet out individuals who may not meet our culture. However, after enacting the welcome-center, it was decided not to pursue such an option, realizing that an open lobby for current and new members, with the occasional troll, adds to the fun and overall experience that is the lobby.

teamRDYK is ran by individuals who enjoy building this community for fun, in the hopes of creating a safe, enjoyable, and relaxed atmosphere for gamers to relax. It is folks like YOU who make this community as great as it is, and the experience that has happened is something to learn from, but sadly it must be realized there will always be people out there who want to troll and cause havoc. Onwards and forwards we go, and apologies for the disruption if it affected you.

Furthermore, it has come to our attention that Da Bomb, led by xtCameron and Crystal, were actively engaged in activities which are not only against Supercell’s Terms of Service, but also goes against the very culture which we have developed. This includes Clan Trading, Account Trading, and possibly Account Stealing. With this said, I would like to make it VERY clear: That has NO place here. teamRDYK is PROUD to be Fair Play. HELP us carry that torch forward!

What are we doing to remediate this?
– We are DELISTING Da Bomb from being part of teamRDYK.
– We are BANNING xTCameron and Crystal from teamRDYK Discord.
– We are REMOVING all Roles, Channels, and Bots associated built up over time.

What are we doing for members/leaders of Da Bomb who are not familiar?
– You are welcome to join another clan of the family. We understand that most, if not all, members/leaders had no idea what was happening.

Where can I read the Supercell’s Terms of Service?
– You can find it here: https://supercell.com/en/terms-of-service/

Leader Note – End of the Year Review & Looking at 2020

Well, it’s December.  The weather is starting to turn and the first winter advisory is on the horizon for us in the NYC region.  Thanksgiving is behind the folks in the United States, and I hope everyone who celebrated had a warm and enjoyable holiday.  Looking ahead we’re going into the holidays as well as the end of 2019. I’m excited for what the teamRDYK family was able to accomplish this year.  I’m excited for all the wonderful new folks who have helped to continue our growth.  I’m excited for each of YOU who choose to be a part of our community! 

Since the mid-year review, some shifts have happened.  As we grow and mature, it is only a natural progression for some members to leave the nest.  I’d like to start there – By giving thanks to all of those who have left our small corner of the internet – But continue in their own ranks to foster a community.  At the end of the day I can be proud to know that teamRDYK is able to revive clans, groom leaders, and grow communities.  Disagreements aside, that means a lot to me. I would like to tip my hat in the direction of the following individuals:

  • Pepperoni Hands, leader of Clash of Clans TheMaroonSpoons, and former Board member.
  • eternal, leader of the Clash Royale clan Royale Yankee, and former Board member.
  • Paul Creenis, leader of the Nintendo Switch clan, and former twilight Leadership member.
  • Chuck, leader of Clash of Clans Dazmos, and former Yankee Leadership member.

They have parted from us to build out their own communities, and it is an honor to be able to say that they were part of the Leadership engine of teamRDYK at one point.  Go forth and prosper gentlemen, and I truly wish you guys the best.  Having said that, teamRDYK has grown – Both from a process and family perspective – We’ve doubled in size.  I’m humbled to be able to say that our Discord server has passed six hundred members.  It is an honor to be able to say that our Supercell Community now consists of over fifteen clan’s across Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, and Brawl Stars. Our pipeline is strong and we always look for internal development of future clans before looking outward – I’m excited for what 2020 will bring!

We’ve also begun to formalize our website and have made the switch over to HTTPS instead of HTTP.  This has helped our search engine results dramatically and we can see that in the traffic we’re receiving:

The above chart shows our HTTPS traffic exponentially increasing.  We’re receiving >50 unique visitors to our website every day, with over >2000 unique visitors a month.  What an amazing accomplishment and it is all because of folks like YOU.  We’re getting the teamRDYK name out there and we’re having a BLAST doing it!  Our community has grown and we’ve got a lot to be thankful for.  I’d like to take a moment to recognize our latest family additions and give thanks to THEM for believing in our culture and joining our movement:

  • LadyB and Cameron from Clash of Clans Da Bomb
  • Alba from the Rebel Riot Club
  • Dementor from Omega Acolytes
  • Sweet Daddy from FarmersOnly
  • Shep from Vikings
  • Tom from Elite Nation

These Leaders and their members have shown that our Culture of building each other up – Not putting each other down is not only alive and well but thriving.  Hat’s off to you folks, it is an honor to be alongside you as we continue to grow our community, TOGETHER!

The teamRDYK Board has also grown to include seven members to directly oversee our future growth:

  • flashBang
  • Pine
  • Ravdav
  • Crackerjack
  • Green Village
  • Cass
  • Esco

Together, we have matured our processes:

  • Chat mods for Clan Leaders within our Discord server
  • Formalized application process for clans looking to join our family
  • Began planning out quarterly events for our family
    • Q4 ’19: No Dip Draft War
    • Q1 ’20: Air vs Ground War
  • Established a scouting and onboarding process for prospective clans
  • Established a review process for clans not meeting our expectations

I’m happy to report that we’ve had several clans apply to join our family, making this a crucial step in our progression forward.  However, in the sake of offering true transparency: Only a few have made it past the prospect stage.  This ensures that we’re bringing in clans that meet our culture but also offer a level of activity to make being part of our community a fun and engaging experience!

Tl;dr: We’re going to continue doing what we’re doing – And have FUN doing it by closing our the year with our FIRST EVER NO DIP DRAFT WAR!  If you’re looking to join a community with good natured, friendly folks – Check us out and let’s keep on keeping on in 2020!  We’re going to continue growing, we’re going to run more events, and we’re going to continue building each other up!  Thanks to all of YOU who make this possible!
