We’ve been working really hard, guys.
Today, we bring you the results of weeks and weeks of blood, sweat and tears. We’re proud to say that we’ve just finished up and launched our biggest product update in company history! What’s really awesome about this update is that it’s focused on user experience improvements (or UX, as those of you in the tech biz would call it). And user experience is what makes the digital world go ‘round. We present to you, Gamer Launch’s…

Whether you just left a group or you’re completely new to a game, if you’re playing online, you will want some friends. The game itself gets you interested enough to play, but having people to play with is what keeps you coming back even when it has irritating moments. It’s important. But making those friends… aye, there’s the rub.

We’ve talked a little bit in previous posts about how much you can benefit from having a guild, clan, or game community website. We even went over what kinds of things you should look for when you start searching for a guild hosting platform.
Game community websites help bring players together. They’re a place to communicate with each other, organize events, and recruit new people to play with. But some of you are probably wondering why you have to use a guild hosting platform to do all those things. Can’t you use a regular web platform like WordPress instead?

The Road to BlizzCon is getting shorter and shorter. Just two days ago, Blizzard wrapped up the 2015 Heroes of the Storm Americas Championship. Eight teams competed in Las Vegas for a piece of the $100,000 prize pool.
After testing their mettle in the dual tournament group stage, Cloud9, Tempo Storm, compLexity Gaming, and COGnitive Gaming advanced to the playoffs. Tempo Storm took the first spot in the finals, followed by Cloud9.

The last time I talked about feedback, it was all about giving feedback that’s worth getting. The problem is that the best feedback in the world won’t do anything when you’re dealing with officers who don’t actually care about what you have to say. You can outline all of a guild’s problems with aplomb and wit, provide a flawless plan to fix them, and even add in a quick five-minute guide to losing weight and making money while eating cake – if the officers don’t read and internalize it, all of that feedback is immediately worthless.

We’ve already talked about what MMOs and MOBAs offer the best experience for a guild. But some of you prefer rifles to roleplay, and that’s okay. Shooter clans need love, too. (And Gamer Launch has lots to give.)
There are a lot of obvious choices that we could have put on this list: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty, and Battlefield to name a few. Everyone knows that these big-hitters have huge communities, so it seems a little redundant to include them. And we’re betting that some of you are getting kind of tired of them, anyway. So we’ve hand-picked a few games that aren’t quite as AAA, but still offer a fantastic multiplayer experience for clans.

The NFL may have kicked off the first official games for this season, but the real excitement is happening on the eSports scene. Although we’ve already seen a few major events like the SMITE World Championships and the Dota 2 TI5, tournament season is nowhere near over.
As summer comes to an end, the eSports community is gearing up for four world championship tournaments this fall. And three of them are happening at the same time. You can’t get that kind of action anywhere else. Here’s what’s left on the competitive calendar for this year: Continue reading Forget Football: The eSports Season is in Full Swing
At the time of this writing, I’m not far from having left a longtime guild in one of my regular games. It’s something I had been thinking of doing for a long while, but a bit of discussion internally about issues within the guild were enough to convince me that yeah, it was time to go. It all had a lot to do with how the feedback was handled in general, but that’s getting into a whole pile of useless hearsay.

We’ve already talked about why you need a guild website. A well-made site on the right guild hosting platform will help your group maintain communication, stay organized, and network more effectively. But that’s all big picture stuff. You’re probably asking the more immediate question: how do I do all that?
A good guild website seeks to enhance the group play experience for guild members, so most guild hosting platforms offer a ton of features that do just that. From communication and recruitment tools to customization and game integration, there are a lot of options available to you. So which ones are essential to making a great site?

Guild and clan websites are an amazing resource. If you have a group of players that you spend most of your time playing with, get a guild website. Whether you’re into MMOs, MOBAs, FPS, or even if you’re a server community, get a guild website.
There are lots of perks to using a guild hosting platform. They don’t just help strengthen your guild, they can also help expand it. Here’s how. Continue reading 3 Reasons You Need a Guild Hosting Website
