Hello SGNers! Teddy was unable to join the Community Meeting this week so I am stepping in to report on the goings-on. Turns out Ryan (Overfiist) also couldn’t make the meeting, though he made a sneaky appearance part way through, so I also ran the meeting. Let’s hope I remember everything I said 😀
First of all, and appropriately, wanted to let everyone know that now since Ryan has taken a second part-time job, he’ll be a little less available than usual. But we have a stellar staff available to assist you so please make use of them. No seriously, let’s keep them on their toes and make sure they’re keeping up with their responsibilities! Speaking of, Itzz Sniped will be stepping in to help get Ark established on the PS4. We’ve seen a lot of traction recently on the Xbox side and want to spread the love.
Johnny has also been busy getting together the start of a more formalized approach to our media presence- specifically YouTube and Twitch/Beam. There was a meeting held mid-week but for those who could not attend or were not aware, be sure to reach out to him to express your interest. Nothing is set yet, but we want to involve the members as much as possible in the process. Help us help you!
Xbox got a facelift this week with a new dashboard. Will require a period of adjustment but overall the reception has been positive. Also this week the latest Dark Souls DLC came out, as well as the start of a Gears Easter event including chocolate weapons and Donnie Darko-esque bunny masks. Overwatch will also kick off the “Insurrection” event this week that will last until May. Full details will come with the launch on Tuesday, April 11.
PS4 is going to have some more events soon: you can look forward to Battlefield and Overwatch nights in the near future. Plus now that Jake (El Oh Elf) has his access privileges to the calendar back up, you should start seeing more activity on there. So be sure to check back at http://thesgn.com/site/calendar/ for all the latest. There will also be announcements in our Discord chat as we get closer to the event dates.
And queue the collective groan, but Destiny is seeing a resurgence. Just kidding… but not really 😉 If you are interested in joining up with Elite, Will, and Dollar they have been highly active on the PS4 side- be sure to drop them a DM or join in the conversation in our Destiny Discord chat. We don’t have a Game Manager on Xbox currently, but if you are interested please message me or Alex (Trusty Pipboy… The Trusty Biscuit? Mr. Biscuit?). We will be looking for a Game Manager in preparation for Destiny 2 so if you are interested please let us know.
And lastly, we have had 32 new members join in the past 2 weeks! Awesome job recruiting guys!! As a reminder, you don’t have to be staff to recruit. If you have friends or notice someone online looking for a community to play with, be sure to spread the word. Or just wear some killer swag from Apocalyptee with our logos on it and wait for them to come to you! (not actually a recommended tactic, but the shirts are pretty sweet!) If you’ve joined our Discord but haven’t yet joined here on the website, be sure to sign-up so you can leave a comment below. When we updated the site the members list was unfortunately wiped so you will have to re-register even if you had an account before. Sorry 🙁
Anyways that’s all I’ve got for this week. Back to your regularly programmed meeting-minutes-wizard Teddy next time.
<3 Ms. Biscuits
