People who are cities are still people. They come to Elvenar usually as an entertaining escape from their real life for a while – time away from children, enduring or recovering from illness, de-stressing from a busy life, you name the reason but the end goal is often the same.
As such, players want to feel good. They want to be happy – and deserve to be, as they’re willingly sharing their time with you and your fellowship. And if players are happy, they are more likely to come back and spend more time with your fellowship – growing, chattering, and participating in a multitude of ways.
One of the simplest, easiest, and most effective things that you can do to help with the happiness quotient in your fellowship is to recognize achievements, large and small. Someone just pass 50k? Give a shout out. One of the big players just get a new profile picture from opening a new chapter? Say something. Did you have top 100 players earn rank points in the last tourney? Awesome! Say something. Did someone provide leadership for the last Fellowship Adventure, all unasked? Thank them publicly.
All of it matters. It becomes positive energy in your fellowship, which means lower attrition and better performance. And, of course, your fellowship is an awesome place to be.
