The Raid Organizer (RO) web platform allows for console gamers to schedule in-game events with one another. This is a highly desirable tool. Some of these games require 6 man teams to complete. Without 6 friends online how do people experience the game? With RO’s website you can schedule games and allow other members to join. They create the video game event, date, time, and meet in-game online to start and finish the event, together.
Here’s the problem. I have 650 members and no one has created a game. I tried to create games myself to play with my users but no one has joined any of the games I have created either. It has been over a year. Everyone interacts with us on Facebook (7k followers) but no one uses the platform. The chicken and egg comes into play here:
How do we get users to create games, without games there are no users.
We do have competitors who are very active but their system is completely different. We have features and functionalities that “should” give the user a much better experience. For example; we have a rating system that no one else does. Why? Because people need to be held accountable. If you join an event and your rating is very low the game creator can remove you from the 6 man roster allowing someone else to join.It is in your best interest to show up on time, participate, have fun. Games are typically scheduled 3-5 days in advance. Average age of our user are 24-45, 50% male 50% female.
