Volunteering as a Game Master

 

 

We couldn’t run Homecoming without our fantastic team of volunteer Game Masters. They put in countless hours every week responding to support tickets, helping players and generally keeping the peace. It’s hard - and sometimes thankless - work, but it is necessary in order to keep the game running smoothly.

 

We’re always on the lookout for new GMs, so if you’re interested please fill out our new GM Application Form and we’ll get back to you if you’re a suitable candidate! (Note: We keep applications on file until we need more GMs - we'll be in touch when we need you!)

 

While we want everyone who's interested in volunteering to apply, we’re in real need of volunteers that tick any of the following boxes:

  • Players that primarily play on Indomitable, Reunion and Torchbearer
  • Players that can speak at least one language on top of being fluent in English (specifically we’re looking for French, Spanish and German)
  • Mac OS and Linux experts
  • Players that are available outside of peak US hours
  • Players with in-depth knowledge of PvP or Architect Entertainment

I do tick most of these boxes, but I am a bit unclear about what it means to be a GM, both in tasks and what kind of time requirements there would be. I once ran a 200+ person WoW guild for a couple of years, but that became more of a second job, which I would not want to repeat.

Hi there!  You're actually not the only one! Becoming a Game Master is, at its core, all about helping the CoX community. We are tasked with a few different roles such as enforcing any of the policies set in place by the Homecoming Team (essentially holding players accountable to the Code of Conduct), assisting players with in-game issues (such as whenever a petition or ticket is submitted for a stuck mission or mob, harassment claims, CoC Violations, etc.) and monitoring the Discord/Forums for players who are in need of help!

We are also in charge of running the various Contests and Events for the Homecoming Team (i.e. Monthly Costume Contests, Base Contest, AE Dev's Choice, PvP Contest, Monster Mashes, etc.)!

I won't lie to you - being a Game Master can be work. We're entirely comprised of volunteers who donate their time and expertise in helping the CoX community. However, we're all here because we have a special connection to the game and the community that plays it, and that's really all we're looking for in additional volunteers. If you're the type of person that loves answering questions in "Help Channel" or chatting with players in Discord and wants to support the community; its probably a great role for you!

First of all let me just say how incredibly grateful I am to everyone that has put work into this project. I am someone that played so many hours of city of heroes back in the day I couldn’t come close to figuring out how much of my life it took up! I truly thought I had lost the ability to ever play again, I have kids now that I play video games with including World of Warcraft, but have always shared the stories about how much fun city of heroes was and how it truly was the best game ever created. On a whim I googled it because I just told my daughter that also loves video games again about how amazing of an experience it was to get lost in the character making process and leveling up with an incredible group of players that always are willing to help one another out. I could not believe that someone put this project together and didn’t believe it until I made my first character and jumped into liberty city! Words cannot express how grateful I am, if there’s anything I can ever do to help I am all ears and here, willing and able!
