Oh... hello there. We've taken a look back at the year 2022.
It's been a pretty good year ~ We've laughed, loved, celebrated, and now we feel good going into 2023, and we appreciate you all for being apart of it, thank you <3
📈 Lines go UP!
115,000 total profiles and over 13,000 connections per month! That's like... a lot.
We're flabbergasted (cool word that) with how many of you are making friends, forming TEAMS and creating awesome memories together. And the numbers just keep going up.
🎮 Game Launches
We currently support 5 game titles:
🦎 Apex Legends (Nessy' is a loch ness guys, a lizard emoji is the best i got)
🚘 Rocket League
Three of which were launched this year, but we don't plan on stopping there... We're excited to reach out and support other gaming communities by helping players find teammates and friends to play with... Because you know, F*ck solo queue!
On every game launch, we've hit the 🔥Hot section of the subreddits ~ we're always top 3 and stay there for over 24 hours. Our highest upvoted post was VALORANT with over 16k upvotes!
To help you break the ice and team up faster ~ we built Chat, and there have been 25,000 conversations and over 85,000 messages sent since we've released this feature! Much wow...
Interesting stat: 10,000 messages (11.76%) included something like "Wanna play?"
But, this isn't the end of the Play saga, we're excited to develop this further into the next year... So stay tuned 👀
One of our fun features ~ highlighting your connections and their positive qualities can go a long way. After all... who doesn't like a good compliment!
- Good Vibes is the most given commendation so far
- 10% of you called each other a G.O.A.T
We hear you! This was built to help other players spot you from the crowd ~ you get to show how active you are on TEAMS and raise your position on other players Discover pages
Ok... One of you has boosted your Apex Legends profile EVERY SINGLE DAY since August. DAYUMMM, you're the G.O.A.T!
😊 Positive Impact
On a serious note, we love what we do. That's because we get that warm fuzzy feeling when we hear about us helping others, and the stories that come from it.
W Friends is a series we've started to create, where we speak to players who have met via TEAMS ~ and we've heard so many great stories.
W Friends Episode 1: Introduces llija ‘markov1c’ Marković and Dawood ‘t0ks’ Jarrar, players who met through TEAMS earlier this year. They've been gaming and have climbed from Silver all the way up to Immortal together.
We've also heard stories of people who've gone on hikes together, and another couple of players who plan on moving in together as roommates!
19,000 people in our Discord! Participating in giveaways, looking for teammates, chatting with us, providing us valuable feedback on how to better TEAMS.gg and giving us insight into what you'd like to see next.
We've also been developing our own Discord bot which is integrated with TEAMS.gg. You can use our #lfg and #play-now channels to share your TEAMS profile and let others know you're either looking for long term teammates, or wanting to game there and then.
We love esports and want to support the growth of competitions in gaming.
12,000 of our players have said they'd like to find teammates to play in a specific event, including the likes of:
- Beacon & VRL's
- VCT Game Changers
- ESL PremierShip
- ESEA Seasons
- And many, many more...
It's been awesome to inspire players to compete and enjoy gaming to the fullest.
🥳 TEAMS TEAM
As TEAMS has been growing, we've needed more hands on deck, and thanks to you... We've grown from a TEAM of 3:
James 'Duffa' Duffield
The handsome one of the bunch, and the guy in charge... God help us.
Tom 'kalleth' Russell
The smart one, he does coding stuff... then I have to do some testing and fix all the stupid bugs he creates.
Stuart 'STUZZOR' Crouchman
He doesn't have a Twitter, but he's tall... like super tall, and kind of annoying tbh.
To a Squad of 7:
Daniel 'Buttonsz' Ward
Born in Australia, raised in the United Kingdom and living in Germany. And he still sucks at Geoguessr.
Conor 'Beatles' Beattie
A.K.A. Creamyboy! Conors actually the only cool one, no bad words for him.. Besides, he has life rough as it is (he's as short as i am, and i'm really short).
Rikk 'Rikkz' Vervoort
Our washed up Twitch Partner who stays up late playing Age of Empires. A true boomer.
Lee 'Blackout' Parsons
A hand picked professional, the best of the best, the crème de la crème! But... still isn't Radiant (I was forced to write that last part 😡)
And as you can tell... we don't take ourselves too seriously. But we are happy with who we've got <3 (except Stu).
😄 Thank you, and see you in '23
From our point of view, we've all got fond memories of gaming, competing, and having fun with the friends we made. It's been heart warming to help so many of you all do the same thing.
We've put our blood, sweat and tears into TEAMS, and to see you all benefit from it is one hell of an experience, thank you <3
