The Academy

How do you balance people and progression?

After years of gaming, we've realized that games are the most enjoyable when: 1) You are playing with friends and 2) you are winning. We want to recruit as high quality of gamers as we can, but no matter the gamer's skill level, if they are not compatible with our core values, they won't stay in our guild. Hence, people and progression but people over progression is our goal. We are wanting all gamers who are compatible with our core values. You can't teach culture, but you can teach skills. We teach and measure skill levels through our game academies and skill ranks.

So what are your skill ranks?

We establish game academies for our games to help improve our member's skill levels. Our skill ranks are such that:

  • Basic rank - 95% of players should be able to pass this test. This is more about teaching people our system.
  • Bronze rank - 50% of players should be able to pass this test. You have to pass this test to be in leadership.
  • Silver rank - 20% of players should be able to pass this test. This is our more "hard core" players.
  • Gold rank - 5% of players should be able to pass this test. Prestige.

The ranks that we use inside games which support member management (ie, MMOs) are consistent with these skill ranks. Our guild ranks are separate.
