Hi, I’m starting a Discord to help Evolve players find teammates for either casual or competitive play. As many of you may know, Evolve has a general Discord channel which is great for finding quick groups, discussing the game, talking to devs, etc. However, I’m launching this new Discord (called "amateur League | Evolve, or aLE for short) to help players who are looking for high-skilled teammates to form pre-made teams, either for casual play in pub matches, or competition in tournaments. The Discord can be useful in finding players to have regular matches with, experiment with roster changes, and skirmish with other burgeoning teams or free agents for practice.
This Discord is primarily for amateurs - i.e., individuals who don’t actively participate in the “pro” leagues like ESL, though anyone from ESL is also certainly welcome to join in. The idea for this Discord comes from my team’s own extensive search for teammates, as well as from things like @Ryke676’s stream where he tried to help coach his viewers to form groups for higher-level play. The hope is that it can be an active community of experienced players to play with one another until you find a group that really “clicks” for you.
The Discord right now offers channels for:
- Individual players/teams looking for team members (longer term)
- Individual players looking for group (short term)
- Solo monsters looking for a hunter team to partner with, or scrim against (or both)
- Free agents for substitution in matches, scrims, or tournaments
- Channels for burgeoning shoutcasters - find a caster, or discuss
- A channel for coaching
- A channel to discuss the various tournaments available to amateurs (including the Evolve Community Cup, the Helix Gamers League Amateur Tournament, etc.) and their rules, regulations, registration details, etc.
There are also voice channels available for NA and EU players in games, “Scrim Rooms” for players, and more. I’m fully amenable to making captains of teams moderators in the channel moving forward, and exploring collaborations with other teams, making changes to the Discord’s formatting, etc.
It’s hard finding people to play games with on a steady basis. Life gets in the way. Sometimes your friends don’t play the same game, they’re on at different times, or they’re just not as interested in high-level play as you. If any of those apply, this Discord is right for you. My hope is that this can help us all find people we enjoy playing this fun game with. Hopefully you all check it out, and provide feedback if there’s anything I can improve.
If anyone at all is interested in joining, please use this link:
Anyone is welcome to join and look around. Hopefully you can find some people to play with, whether you’re looking for a pre-made team to shoot with regularly, or just need a few people to fill your group with in the heat of the moment. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns, or have any thoughts for improvement as well, either on the Discord, or on steam:
