I’m a relatively new player. I started playing in August 2020. I took a 6 wk break and started actively playing again in October 2020. Since then I’ve been playing daily. In the beginning, I was automatically placed in a ‘zombie’ team (last log - in 89 days ago, etc).
Sometimes I was the only active player. I stayed in that team/league for a couple of wks. I wanted to improve my game, so I went looking for a team with a pulse. I found a public team in the gold league with a solid core of 20-21 members. The following week, I think we made it into the platinum league (there were a few other players joined the same wk I did). This is my first and only ‘real’ non-default team.
We had a player that was a bit of “over-achiever”, he would average 120k-140k weekly and was always receiving invites from other teams/leagues. He was also our top player every wk. Despite his consistent performance, he wasn’t the leader and apparently had no desire to be leader, he was also loyal to our team.
Over time the OG members left the group, and our top player who was co-leader became leader by default. On our team, we had multiple co-leaders (6-7) After a few wks I was promoted to a co-leader. I didn’t want/ask for this title but didn’t think that it would be an issue because we had so many other co-leaders.
I joined a more active team to learn the game. I also really liked playing on a team because it kept me more engaged and I found it interesting to learn the different ways ppl play the game. The game changes when you play on a more dynamic team and for a few weeks we had a great team!
I understand that it can take a few months to rebuild a team/start a new team, so as long as that is communicated I have no issue staying on a team/joining a team that is in the process of re-establishing themselves. I don’t love being ghosted in the middle of the night by multiple members of my team both new and old - especially when that member is the leader!!! If I did, I would’ve stayed on the OG zombie team!
Our original leader left the club and the top player became leader, without telling anyone he left the team after reset, making me leader by default. There is now a mass exodus occurring within the team. I have no desire to be leader/co-leader but would like to play on a more established team or with a core group of established players even if the group is new or in a different league.
Despite only playing for a couple months, I’ve seen some drama/poor behavior. Example, collectors -ppl who join a team at the end of any event to collect the perks, then move on to the next team. We had some ppl that didn’t even last 1-2 hours. Some ppl joined for a few minutes? Did they accidentally join the club?
For that reason, I would prefer to play on a team that is ‘invitation only’. I would also like to play on a team with members in multiple timezones. Because it’s easier to get help with the game and compete in some of the cqs.
The team I played on seemed to be a US based team all within eastern timezone. Which btw, is my timezone/location, but I’ve been having sleep issues, so I have played at all hours of the day! We had a few players located outside of that timezone but not many. Also several members didn’t chat, so I had no idea where they were located?
My stats: I average between 70k-85k a week. Top 3 contributor (all weeks). Top 2 all but one wk. Top team tiki hunter wk avg (1k-1.5k). I play all cqs and max almost all of them (the only one I struggle with maxing is red star but I do contribute). Once I receive notification I always check the gift shop. If a team gift is purchased will say “thank you”. I try to welcome new members and share any tips I may have.
I will help the team qualify to dig but generally don’t dig. I prefer to use $ to play/learn the “core” game and hunt tikis. One of the reasons I hunt tributes is because it forces me to play levels I wouldn’t normally play (allowing me to earn more team pts) Our team almost always completed all perks (including special) with the exception of the previous one (a wk from last Thursday).
I’m hoping to find a supportive (chatty) team. We don’t have to speak everyday but pls say “hi” once in awhile. I would also prefer to play on a team that doesn’t have daily minimums (for points/tributes) I’m ok with requirements like: “20k by Sunday” I just don’t want to feel forced to play everyday because of a rigid requirement.
I would also prefer that the team not consists of 24 other “guests” The name you provide doesn’t have to be real, pronounceable, or in a common language. I’m ok with a pseudonym just something identifiable example: Guest #1, a series of numbers, a string of symbols, or a word in a language other than your own.
There is member on a different team, in my current league that uses a series of punctuation marks to refer to the female antimony (that’s it!). While I would find it a bit awkward to address him in the chat using the same characters, I still find this preferable to addressing a “guest”. Although most guests seem to be non-verbal.
I will also do more than the minimum. I’ve played every single day for the past 61 days but I also would prefer not to play on a team that kicks members out with 12-18 hr idles even with chat communication because life does happen.
I’m actually pretty laid-back although I’m not sure this post conveys this! I know that existing clubs will have their own rules that differ from my preferences but I’m hoping that by being candid, I can find a club that is a better a fit.
I want a new long-term home not just a place to collect perks. Which is also why I thought posting here rather than just joining a club blindly might be a better route and demonstrate my ongoing commitment to finding the right team.
If you think I might be a good fit for your team please send an invite/respond to this post with some information about your team. Example general rules, what order do you play perks, how many co-leaders do you have. etc?
Is there a way I can read clubs rules (without joining a club) if the team has not but that information in their club motto? If so, how?
Any additional suggestions for finding a good team? When did you feel ready to move-on to a different team or league?
