that’s why I offered my Directorship to join our growing Club. To join, however, you don’t have to take the Directorship, it was just a ‘sweetener’
Like I told you . I am very flattered by your offers and observations . But am not ready to join and participate with a group at this time .
Our most knowledgeable are both still Legends at L106 and L98, then I guess myself, as we are the ones who use our club forum the most, so there maybe others, but they haven’t shared it so far.
All these people have made me rethink the top players as my fist 5-10 encounters with Legends+ as a TourPro/Master was disopointing, to,say the least. All aggressive, arrogant, not pleasant, except one...and he’s not in my friends list, so can’t compliment him, unfortunately.
Looking at your 136 member CC . 12 Legends . And is your highest tier .
Which means to me . That you are already in the ripest atmosphere imaginable . My advice to you is to first try to develop playing relationships with every player in the CC . One way or another .
Starting with the Legends . Create tiered fun but competitive tournaments in your CC .
For all the tiers to play in . Hacks & Amateurs . Pro's and Tour Pro's , Masters T M's and Legend's . For example .
Before you grow any larger . Stop and really evaluate what you have . Because what you have . Could be the makings of a future power house .
If you find that you cannot get their interest . No matter what .
Then it might be time to find a CC with more members that share your directions , hopes and goals .
There is no better place . There is no better way . Than in a CC . With a team like spirit .
Every CC mate friending every other CC mate . Receptive to and respectful to each one as though you are brothers and sisters .
That is how groups move mountains . WGT CC's are an opportunity to do just that .
At the same time as you are honing your own skills . You can also contribute to the GR8er good .
This all may sound like a pipe dream to many . But that is how I approach a CC and those were some of the same goals I/we aspired to .
There were times . Flashes in the pan . Where we felt like we had accomplished close to the ultimate group . It is worth it just for the experience of a team working together like a well oiled machine .
You may not like or agree to any of this . But that is how I would do it .
Develop a Team Environment .
Encourage the other tiers to challenge themselves and move up in tiers .
See if you can make any headway with that . Post in the CC forum . Post on their walls
I know I’ve gone way off topic, but how do you attract the better players? We are L13, but have some players with long Daily xp’s So we’re motoring through quite quickly. L17 by end of year, but then the curve steepens quite dramatically.
Our Owner is constantly recruiting, but 50% just end up playing for a 3-4 months then losing interest. We’ve lost a few good men, Bunker Busters being the main culprit, taken 3-4 Legends.
Players went to Bunker Busters for whatever reasons . It is water under the bridge .
Work with what you have already . Create the ultimate group of say 50 bad ass Legends . From what you already have .
That is my advice .
You all will have to leave your egos at home . Just bring your sporting and informative and competitive self . To pump up your team . Together .
EDIT : Let me just say . That the above is only a small part of what could be a goal for a CC . And must stress that there are as many agendas as there are CC's .Last I heard was over 60,000 CC's .
A fantastic variety . People join CC's for so so many different reasons . And they are all right .
