Over the past week EUeSports has been revitalised after providing a fairly lacklustre service these past number of months. Other than doing our jobs, we as staff, have also been thinking outside the box at different ways in which we can improve EUeSports. One of those underlying issues which we have had is the difficulty of finding a team for free agents, especially those who have signed up to the forum oblivious to the community. To counter the current issue with free agents we have came up with a new concept which will be introducing 'ODC pickup teams'. Basically this is the idea around it: Every day an additional 'pickup signup' thread will be created where members will be asked to leave their psn, preferred role and a contact detail. (This is solely open to F/As) While on the ODC bracket there will be 4 spots reserved for these pickup teams. Additionally I'll be asking more familiar members on EUeS to captain these sides and offer them guidance. Therefore the team will be Captain + 3 Pickups. Whether or not this will work I'm not sure so I'll be looking for constructive criticism regarding the project and I'll be running it on a trial basis, providing there is demand for it and it is useful then it will become more permanent. Hopefully we'll have the following outcomes: The F/As playing together may potentially create a team. By having veteran members captaining the teams they'll be able to offer guidance and advice. If they get along then maybe this will continue outside of the game. Players signing up to EUeS who are unknown will have a great opportunity to get involved and meet new players. This should also help bridge the gap between top players and new members creating more of a community feel. This will be beginning next Monday and will run on each of the ODC days so I'll also be looking for some players to captain the sides. Anyone can captain the sides although I'd prefer to have members who have been on EUeSports for at least a few months and have good knowledge of both EUeSports as well as MW3. Anybody who is interested in lending a hand could you please either post on this thread, PM me or message me on skype (markdsmyth).
