I've been thinking a bit about the future of @FemWarCult lately. if you're an existing or prospective member, please don't take what i'm about to say as gospel or as a "definitely happening", but it'll be a look into what my vision is going forward.
@FemWarCult For those not in the know, I'm the current leader of Feminist War Cult, a minority focused and intersectional feminist gaming community focused on LGBT folks, racial minorities, and disabled folks.
@FemWarCult We welcome players of all races, genders, sexualities, classes, & abilities. Visit feministwarcult.com for more info, and to view our code of conduct as well!
@FemWarCult Feminist War Cult was founded around - and still centers on - Destiny. Right now, after everything that's happened around D2, interest is waning. Even if there were interest, the platform divide between PC and PS4 is there.
@FemWarCult With everything considered there, Destiny isn't really able to be our sole pillar, imo. There's too much going on in gaming in general, and there are games with a broader accessibility and appeal than it that, maybe, we can build around and create a fresher space.
@FemWarCult I don't want Destiny to go away and no longer be a part of FWC, and it would still be a core part of it! But I want to add more than one pillar that we have as a community.
@FemWarCult Biggest pillars I can think of would be around Fortnite, Warframe, Rainbow Six, and maybe even the FGC. Also would love to have more presence in traditional MMO spaces, like WoW and FFXIV.
@FemWarCult I also want to foster a competitive arm of FWC that represents us as an organization in tourneys, and eSports. I'd love to make a splash in the scenes around Overwatch, Fortnite, PUBG, and R6Siege. Maybe MOBAs if we have the players.
@FemWarCult eSports needs a counter to the usual bro culture. Wouldn't mind being part of that.
@FemWarCult However, a key part of expanding our pillars as a community is going to be growing the cult. I want FWC to be bigger, and I want to build even more of a presence in Asia Pacific, Africa, and Central / South America. North America and Europe make up the bulk of the cult right now.
@FemWarCult That also means expanding our ambassador program and our community management team. It might also mean FWC appears in other languages in due time. I think it also means clarifying what we expect from our ambassador and CM teams more. Those roles are kind of loose.
@FemWarCult I'd like to fix that.
@FemWarCult I think another thing I'd also like to look at is what's public facing from FWC. Our branding and visuals need a rework, and our message and intent needs to be clearer and louder than ever before.
@FemWarCult I'd love to start putting a bigger emphasis on showing off what folks in our community are doing, from the creative works we do to in-game / stream highlights being shown off regularly.
@FemWarCult Maybe bi-weekly / monthly shows from community managers and more regular showings from cultists on Twitch? I'm not sure what that would all look like.
@FemWarCult This has been a bit of a ramble, but I hope you've come away knowing a bit more about my vision for the future of FWC. None of this is official, but I absolutely fully expect to start working on some parts of this vision soon.
@FemWarCult I'm coming up on my second year as the leader of the cult, and things have been a bit wild. Thanks for hearing me out! Go check out feministwarcult.com and follow @FemWarCult if you're not already! <3
