How to merge your clan into the
Shrouded Community

How we started

"So to begin. I personally was a streamer for years, it was the reason I had this discord to begin with. I had tried one  time to start a community, and that was the release of Destiny 1. It went alright, but I wasn't really invested as my multiplayer machine was my PC, and as you know destiny 1 was only on console. So that Game community never went anywhere.

Fast forward 2 years and Destiny 2 release is coming up fast and they decided to release on PC. I was interested but to say the least I still hadn't planned on making a community, maybe a clan.... but never a community.

So Here came the day October 24th, 2017 and I was sitting at work, and I was like I’m going to make a clan. So I sat and pondered for awhile what I should name it, went through a bunch of names and finally settled on "Shrouded Souls". So Invited some of the friends I knew that would play D2 with me and then we had the start to a clan, I made the banner added the profile page. Setup some channels in discord. And put up a recruitment post on the Bungie Forums. This changed everything.

We recruited 100 Members Unbelievably fast, it was unreal. So my battle net account was linked to my psn as well, I was able to make a second clan with a the psn account. So I made a second clan, updated my post telling people to join the new clan "Shrouded Knights" And thus began the idea of a community as well had to clans that would fly the same banner, group up on discord and have loads of fun. Well to tell you Knights filled up just as fast as Souls would be an understatement. almost as fast as I could blink we had 200 members. Immediately the 3rd and 4th clan were created. We filled these and officially said 400 is enough members…. That was day 1 of the Shrouded Gaming Community.

 

Fast forward 1.5 years, we have over 75 staff members, ranging from clan admins and officers to content creators, sherpas and recruiters all looking after over 40 clans and 7000 SGC Members.

Community Activity Policy
 

Within the SGC we ensure our members are active, engaging other members and interacting in the community as a whole. With all that we have to offer we want to give back to our community as much as possible! So By doing so, we have a community wide Activity policy across our games.
Every Monday our clan admins purge the inactives from their clans.
10+ Days in-game is cause for removal. 5+ is a warning.
14+ Days not active in discord is cause for removal. 7+ is a warning.

By keeping and staying true to this activity policy, everyone is always sure to find someone to play with, even if it isn’t in their exact clan. Our retention rates stay up and we foster a community wide involvement where any member can find the help they need or just people to play the game with that are of like mindedness and family oriented.
