    Frontier Ranks - Player Group Rankings

    Greetings, Commanders.

    One thing we’re really keen to do is support player groups as much as possible. There are some really exciting ways that groups can get involved in the game now and we’re working on a way to let you submit Community Goals, create minor factions and perhaps even become a full power in the game. You can find out more about this HERE

    Something else we want to do is make sure we are communicating as much as possible with groups. As you can imagine there are hundreds of groups and many thousands of people involved in those groups so it’s hard to speak to everyone in one go. For that reason we’re launching a ranking system called Frontier Ranks.

    Firstly, these ranks have no effect on your ability to submit Community Goals, establish a minor faction or become a power, but they will allow us to support player groups as much as possible through closer communication. The ranks are more focused on being able to help the largest and most active groups, but we hope it will be beneficial to everyone, and inspire more amazing groups to come forward

    There will be 3 recognised ranks of player groups. If you would like to be added to our list send us an email to groups@elitedangerous.com including your name, type (PVP/PVE), member size, website (if you have one) and contact name and email.

    Dangerous – Dangerous groups are anyone that wants to be a part of the conversation. The only requirements are that you have a group and want to hear more news and updates from us. These groups will be added to the database and contacted via email when there are events, incentives or information that they might like to know about.

    Elite – Elite groups are groups that have an established and thriving sub-community. They might have an estimate of about 50+ members, run regular events which can be promoted and are supportive of the ED team and community. These groups will be able to submit their activity to us to be promoted in our newsletters, social media or an events schedule which will be creating in the coming weeks.

    Triple Elite – The largest and most engaged sub communities belong in the ranks of Triple Elite. They are likely to have a huge and super-active community, with many hundreds of active members and are a positive influence to Frontier and the community as a whole. They will also run public events weekly which we would be able to promote across all of our channels and on an event schedule. Groups that are Triple Elite ranked will be able to attend a regular Skype call, receive increased promotion, prizing for events or competitions (at the community team’s discretion) and ad hoc invitations to studio tours or fan events. As our player groups program develops over time, we’ll be looking at more ways to help the dedicated groups – the Triple Elite members will be the first to hear about what we have planned for groups and how they can get involved in activities.

    A few points to note about player group ranks are:


    • The ranks listed out here are just guides. Ultimately the more of a positive impact and community-centric group you are the more we can help support you.
    • The community team will determine the ranks of any given group
    • Groups can be removed from ranks if required
    • Rank benefits can change as and when required. They should be used as a guide.
    • The community team’s decision on rankings are final


    Thanks,

    Zac

    Zac, may I suggest that you clarify that the last clause in "As our player groups program develops over time, we’ll be looking at more ways to help the dedicated groups – the Triple Elite members will be the first to hear about what we have planned." refers to 'what we have planned for group support' and not 'what we have planned for the game overall'.

    I see that the "dev tracker team" found their way here too!

    Whissht! Pecisk is still off doing bedtime or something. Anyhow, Brett C said they are working on integrating their own dev tracker into the forums. When that happens, the mode of discourse will change.

    critical question - how will you distinguish active members versus members in name only? Certain groups might claim 1000+ members but only have a dozen active. And what kind of evidence are people going to submit?

    Hopefully fdev judges groups by there affect on the game and not solely how many members they have. On a second thought now that MM is down have you thought about maybe shedding your federation facade and joining the glorious empire. We would love to have you
