Another quarter has gone by, another Leadership Update! In keeping with the continued faith of posting consistent quarterly updates as to what teamRDYK has done and providing transparency on where we’re going next, here we go! There’s shorter term goals and longer terms goals as the ship continues to move forward. Before we dive into all of that, there are two things that I would like to preface this post with:
- I hope that each of you, your families, and your friends are safe during this tumultuous time of uncertainty. I remain positive – And you should too – That we WILL get through this!
- If you celebrate Easter, I wish you and yours an enjoyable holiday with laughter and a positive outlook on the future.
I think we’re all aware of COVID-19, so I’ll spare everyone. teamRDYK is alive and well. We’ve grown quite a bit since December. In a single quarter we gained five clans to hit twenty-five clans as part of our overall global Supercell Community. Better still, while we are accepting external clans and encourage those with the appropriate culture to apply (You can learn more here), we have developed an internal growth pipeline. Healthy? Indeed. We just crossed 1,000 members in our Discord! Leaders from across our clans share ideas, similar passions, and it leads to a benefit for all players who enjoy Supercell games.
We have matured some of our processes, and we continue to refine and make them better through feedback and self reflection. We’re now using Google Forms for external clan applicants and event signups. We’re using a standardized scouting process. We’re using an internal forum for review with voting taking place afterwards. From a single clan we’ve blossomed, TOGETHER, into a well oiled machine. I love the community which we have established which remains true to our absolute number one priority: Focusing on building each other UP — NOT putting each other down.
We’ve had our share of troubles, like clans breaking Supercell Terms of Service for account trading/selling, trolls, and some folks who want us to fail. And they were promptly dealt with and removed. We’ve also had our share of failures, such as trying to re-architect our infamous Discord #lobby. But in the end there is something beautiful about our #lobby – A melting pot for all – Players of those in our clans – But also players just looking for a place to chill. How cool to see what we have built.
Another key establishment in our levels of overall community maturity is the running of quarterly events. We’ve now got a rhythm going. We’ve done live streaming, we’ve had cash prizes — But most importantly: We’ve had FUN! There’s a TON of ideas for future events and we will CONTINUE to offer QUARTERLY events. Our strength is in each of YOU! Without you guys making our community so vibrant, we wouldn’t be able to offer such great events. The future looks as bright as ever!
As we look ahead, there’s some further technical integrations we’ll be making to bolster our community that much more. Bots: We have several in play right now, but we also have our very own in house developed teamRDYK.com BetaBot which offers various Clash of Clans commands with more in the works. This bot is fully accessible to clans both part of our community and not. Town hall breakdowns, Player Profiles, CWL stats – Fully 100% open to ALL clans. Interested in seeing how it works? Drop by our Discord and check it out! 😀
The overall Leadership at teamRDYK is simply different from other clan families you may have experienced. We’re comprised of level headed, mature individuals with a truly global foot print. We’re focused on building and fostering a sense of community. We’re not interested in those who wish to be malicious, bully, or be mean to anyone. At the very core of what we have is our culture, and it bears repeating because it is that important: We’re focused on building each other UP – NOT putting each other down.
Last but not least: Some nerdy technical stuff – Website stats. What do they look like? There’s two sets of stats which we have to look at. We put in place HTTP to HTTPS redirects, and over the interim we’ll need to report on both until HTTP is fully migrated out. The results? I’m surprised to be honest.
For March 2020 we had almost TEN THOUSAND unique visitors. That’s CRAZY! And better yet – We do NOT and WILL NOT monetize our website! Our website is used for Event Planning, Community News, and there are plans for expansion into new areas in the future!
To close our this quarterly update, I’d like to again thank each of YOU for helping make our community as awesome as it is! I’m truly humbled and inspired by all of you that have helped to build where we are today – and I’m excited for what we’ll do next! So if you haven’t checked us out yet, and you’re looking to join a Global Supercell Gaming Community focused on building each other up – NOT putting each other down? Look no further – Stop by and get to know us! https://discord.gg/jQQCm5B
Be well, stay safe, and let’s keep on going!
