The lastest post from edom, the bit ive highlighted in red is the only bit that really affects us.

Hi all!

Here is the State of Play update for April 2014. This update will contain details of changes within our admin team, our plan of action and the status of our new website.

Admin Team Restructure

First and foremost, we have decided to restructure the admin team. The admin structure that we had in place wasn't a very good one, with the workload not being spread out fairly and most of the time waiting for Don to do some magic in order for a task to be completed (and with Don having a hectic life of late tasks could be put on hold for week). This is why I became Deputy Admin in order to take the strain off Don and allow tasks to be completed much quicker. However, the game admins have also had a shake up as well. We are moving to a structure that gives Game Admins responsibility for a single game. Each game that we support will have a Lead Game Admin that is responsible for the running of that game, as opposed to everyone trying to do something and it becoming quite messy. Each Lead Game Admin is responsible from everything to do with that game, from adding that game to E-Dom and sorting out rules to creating competitions and cups. This should allow us to give out more consistent and professional 'admining' along with quicker support for games and new releases. A lot of the new responsibilities that Lead Game Admins take on are dependent on features that will be arriving within the new website, so if you don't see any immediate changes, that is why.

So that you can all understand it better, I will post a new thread with all the details on which should hopefully be more detailed and beneficial than just a small overview. It will also tell you who is doing what. You can find that thread here.

Our Plan of Action/New direction?

Well, the admin team has been debating for several months what we should do. Should we continue down the same deary path or should we look outside the box and into the unknown? We started going outside the box and with the added support of FIFA 14, our activity spiked (albeit didn't last all too long). One of our main issues has been our lack of meaningful advertising. As soon we stopped advertising FIFA 14, activity creased almost instantly. The feedback that we had also received was that we hadn't run a competition for it, so playing ladder matches wasn't exactly beneficial. With the new admin structure, we are aiming to eliminate both those issues in one hit. As a result, we are looking at almost restarting our FIFA 14 support again in order to get it right. That was a lesson for us as it showed the differences between the CoD community and the FIFA community.
We are also looking at adding Hearthstone support adding Hearthstone support, however, nothing has been finalized about this yet. We will keep you updated about this developments though.
There is a distinct lack of FPS games though. Our past experience with getting CS:GO going along with trying to recruit an admin that meets our criteria with Battlefield experience hasn't been good. Ghosts has been disastrous (the less said the better). This left us questioning whether we should still look at FPS games to add to our list of supported games. We had a very long meeting discussing whether we should just ditch CoD to concentrate on other possibilities. We decided to continue to support CoD, however we have a twist.Hardcore will no longer be supported in the way that we have been supporting it. Hardcore will now be treated as an open ladder only option (if we choose to even have it as an option) with competitions and prizes only being given out to Softcore only. There will be no changing our minds on this one like we have done in the past. If we are going to support CoD, it will be Softcore only. This will annoy a few people, but at the end of the day, we alienated ourselves from the fish in the ocean to keep the fish in the drying lake happy. That will be changing.

We are always looking at adding support for games to our library, so if you would like us to support a new game, feel free to get in contact and we'll be happy to speak to you in person about getting it started up.

Website Development

Steee will give an update on the status of the new website in the near future.

Feedback

Your opinions and feedback are extremely valuable to us. We are listening and trying to implement ideas from the forums as a result of your opinions and feedback. We cannot emphasize how important feedback is in order for us to turn the corner. We all have to work together in order to create an environment where individual gamers and clans want to play and communication between between the Admin team and you will help. All I ask is that any opinions and feedback are well constructive and that if debates do arise that you are careful enough not to start a flame war.

Regards

Euro-Domination Admin Team
