Hi Guild Ballers,

So, Guild Ball is dead right? Let's all put our toys away and go play Age of Marvel: Judgement Protocol instead?

But what if rumours of Guild Ball's death had been greatly exaggerated? We've been saying for years that as a community we could do a great job of running Guild Ball. Now is our chance to prove that.

We, a small group of enthusiastic players, have formed a Guild Ball supporters' trust. A community led project committed to keeping the game alive, and growing it.

Some of us were pundits. Some of us have podcasts. Some of us have websites. Some of us were playtesters. All of us love Guild Ball.

This project is only one week old, but we've been busy. We've spoken to other community-led game groups such as Blood Bowl, Warmaster, and Epic 40k to get an idea about what works and what doesn't.

We've held a transcontinental meeting to kick things off, made some early decisions, and identified our priorities and initial timelines.

We've got a clear idea about what needs to be done to take the game forward. Of course, things might move faster, and they might move slower. The key thing is...

We need your help.

We're only eight people, and we all have day jobs. We need people to join a number of committees we're setting up to ensure the game's future. If this is going to work, we need to get the right people involved in the right places.

We're looking for volunteers to join the following committees. If you're interested, please fill out this form.

A lot of you have already messaged us to say you're interested. We have your information already, but we'd love it if you could tell us more about your background which areas you want to be involved in.

We're hoping to update the community via Longshanks, GuBS, Guild Ball Heroes, and the Guildball Zone on Discord on our progress as regularly as possible.

If you have any questions, thoughts, suggestions etc please let us know. In the meantime, may all your goals be screamers.

Sincerely,

The Guild Ball Community Project steering group

The GB community project steering group strongly believes that transparency and openness in communication will be key in keeping Guild Ball alive and active for years to come. To that end, we would like to introduce ourselves to help make sure the overall Guild Ball community knows who we are.

Robin Barbier

Hi everyone ! I'm robin barbier, I'm french, 33, from Strasbourg. I'm a graphic designer.

I started playing gb 3 years ago, at the S3. As my girlfriend loves the game too, we started involving ourselves a lot in the game, We started localy with our club and converted 15 players ! We made a lot of small events, then tournaments even for 2 days, then we tried the french qualifier and won a place to the 2018 wtc.

With Sandie we went to Dublin, Irish national master and I finished second. Meeting the scottish and irish guys was awesome ! Strasbourg finished 7th this year, it was really nice, we met a lot of the international players and had a lot of good time! My game against Dominic is still one of my best wargaming moments ahah.

Year 2 I helped organizing the french wtc qualifier (12 teams of 36 players) and we continued to maintain our club, making events, I went to the Belgian Master, i finished 8th and to the French master losing in final against the great David Cameron ! I won the Swiss master, I'm proud to be Swiss champion ! At the WTC less good results but still great moments and great exchange with the players!

Year 3, we started a French Youtube channel with a lot of GB games comments from events and training. We did our 3rd team tournament with Swiss community, some German guys and almost all French guys, one of my best event so far! Then, well, you know, hell for months, then sf announcement...

I love GB, a lot, and I think the game is for events and lives through events. So I propose to help and organize the master tour as quick as possible for us, for the community to meet again and play all together. As I'm not that bad at the game, i propose to help on the play testing erratum and new guilds!

No other game than GB gives me so much strong moments, on the pitch, around the pitch, i made a lot of great friends, and so much good memories, I don't want it to stop!

He dipped his toe into miniatures gaming with X-Wing and then dove in head first with Guild Ball in August 2016. Sam's biggest contribution to Guild Ball (so far!) is the creation and running of the Longshanks website, which should be an especially useful tool as the game becomes community-driven.

Professional

Sam is a neuroengineer by trade. He has a PhD in biomedical engineering and works at a company that makes integrated circuits for implantable medical devices, among other things. Sam has worked with and managed diverse teams of collaborators based in different locations many times in the past and hopes to bring that experience to the steering group.

Last month, we laid out our goals for how the Guild Ball community project would proceed and the committees that we planned to form to accomplish those goals.

We asked anyone interested in taking part in the Guild Ball community project to submit a form with some information about themselves so that we could choose the best candidates for each committee. We had an amazing response - over seventy people! After deliberation, the Guild Ball community project committees are as follows:


Communications






The communications committee is responsible for community engagement and official project communications. They will also be responsible for translating the text of official communications, cards, and rules into various world languages.


Organized play




The organized play committee is responsible for establishing and maintaining rules for organized play, including rules for proxy models. They will organize major events and coordinate a championship series with local event organizers.


Creative





Juniper Page
Kimberly Blomme

The creative committee is responsible for artwork, graphic design, miniature sculpting, and lore. This will include creative elements of prize support and card updates as well as the art direction for any new models or guilds that may be added to the game in the future.


Rules







The rules committee is responsible for patches and updates to the core rules, models, and gameplan cards. They will also be responsible for the development and playtesting of new models or guilds that may be added to the game in the future.


Business



The business committee is responsible for the financial and legal stability of the community project. They also serve as our point of contact with Steamforged Games and all issues relating to intellectuall property.


We want to thank all of you who applied. Many of you were excellent candidates, which made it difficult to choose the best people for each committee. Rest assured that there will be opportunities to get involved in the future if you weren't selected as a committee member.

Sincerely,

The steering group
