Hello Everyone, Welcome Back
From Klupteem to the ApexArena, Budget limitation and inefficient Advertisement. 2 Projects, 2 Hubs 1 Community. From Community Builders To Strategist, School's Club to Esport. Tactikast Answer everyone about What is Next.
Here to Tactikast we have a Dream: Give back to the Esport and its Strategists/Tacticians Community The Fief which Belong to Them.
Unfortunately without money it's not possible. So while we Started Months ago the Enormous Project: APEXARENA. We was too short in money to continue and while we may have try to Start a Kickstarter Campaign we consider that without a Demo/Alpha, It would have been too early.
When you are an indie team your advertisement opportunities are extremely limited.
So without a fully featured alpha it would have been a fail because no one would have heard about it. Moreover Trailer are nice but we all know today that they are far to be relevant.
Obviously, when it's a huge Company behind, We still pledge it because we know the project will go to the end. But Unfortunately when it's an indie Team Like, us, Tactikast. We want to trust them but we need more proofs.
So Here Come Klupteem a fully featured Community Hub. Right now you may ask you:
What the link between Esport Community, Strategist, Apex Arena and Klupteem ?
Well Let me first tell you a little story.
When We, Tactikast, Started (2 Years Ago) we joined several communities to present our project (Indiedb, Itch.io, Gamejolt, Discord ….) We posted several news and prepared the KickStarter Campaign.
Unfortunately we rapidly understood that all these communities was far to have so much members (we was making average 5 real views per months, yes Five). 90+% of the Community is today on Steam, Youtube and Twitch that's it.
When you are an indie Team better Don't even waste your time on platform like Facebook or Twitter because No one will see you. They became too big for little teams, and didn't have been though to allow someone to find them easily.
So at the opposite Itch, Gamejolt, IndieDB have been though for it But their community is far to be big (Mainly indie Dev but not so much Gamers).
Was remaining Discord. Not going to lie. 4 years ago there was room to present projects, Today despite you can still talk with some members most of the Communities are inactive, or full of bot.
Discord have been first though to be a platform where friend can make groups. Not so much to allow indies to find a community. Usually you join Discord because we gave you an invitation outside the Platform not because you found it in Discord.
From there we told us: "If it's to find 5 members per month on all these platforms Combine. Better do our own". First We can organise it according our needs. Secondly we can show, to you, what is our vision and how serious we can be. It's Winning-Winning
Sorry for this long story but it was needed. So we come back to it:
What the link between Esport Community, Strategist, Apex Arena and Klupteem ?
Here you go; This
place have 5 objectives:
- First: Help everyone to find an Sustainable alternative to discord, which are not so numerous today (ie: Not a copy/paste). An alternative with a different approach. We do not expect those who like Discord to come here. Because we really think we are talking to a different community.
- Secondly: Find
a community from who, Us Tactikast, we will be able to gather
feedbacks and build a Hub according to it.
- Third: Show we are a serious team who Really want the best for you
- Fourth: Present the ApexArena to every members and our vision of the Esport in the Tactical Kind
- Five: Rise a Budget of 10 000€ to guaranty anyone we will start an Alpha. And Later a KickStarter Campaign if more funds are needed
Let's talk about what's going on.
First every members who register here: https://klupteem.com (https://klupteem.com/CommunityHub/Welcome.php) can directly join the Official Klupteem for ours projects from Their account:
From now we will at the same time continue and Finish the Klupteem Platform and Gather money for the ApexArena.
So About Klupteem
You will find all
the needed explanation in the Community (And if you don't find what
you are searching simply ask). We may run sometime little polls do
not hesitate to participate to it.
Currently You can vote for the Official Klupteem Banner.
We heavily want your feedbacks so please share it and tell us your suggestions.
There is 3 lists you can find in this community; They indicate, the Fix, Enhancement and New features which are in progress. Currently empty, They will be mostly based on your feedbacks.
Obviously you can report sneaky bugs in the bug channel. And if you don't like chats you can enjoy a whole Forum Longside the community.
Finally while we are currently on the web platform we also plan to have a client later (Which should allow more technical freedoms). If you have specific notes about it; Please tell it.
At the same time we are working on the "Team Lounge" which will be a kind of Group chat but devoted to the Esports members with unique features.
We currently don't have a lot of feedback. So better to come each day to try to answer everyone, I will organise every 2 weeks a whole afternoon where we can talk together about everything concerning Klupteem or ApexArena, and all the feedbacks reports and suggestions you posted, while we was not available.
During the alpha a lot of restrictions apply. For example no Video upload are allowed. It's only for the alpha, while we are running test to avoid performance problems. Obviously in beta it will be allowed.
In its own community you will find All the current official details about it. Still, as already said, we first need funds to go furthers. If you like this place or want to enjoy the ApexArena 1 day you can go in your account setting in the "Subscription and Stuff" Section.
From there in the "Store" 3 Pledges, For The ApexArena, are available (With the "ApexArena Pledge (40€)" mentioned) . They all 3 guaranty 40€ towards the ApexArena, but give you additional privilege for Your Klupteem account, when we will reach the Beta Phase of Klupteem.
Currently they are only pre-order and will not be activated as long as we do not reach the Beta.
Concerning The 40€ spent toward the ApexArena they will be Refunded if we do not reach our commitment (ie: Start an Alpha). So There are no risks for you but there is a Great reward for everyone.
I precise you can
GIFT any additional subscriptions you buy to who you
want (If you already bough 1 for you or get 1 for free).
We will soon accept credit card payment (should be fixed within 1 month) but currently we only accept virtual currencies through Coinpayment.
A Last note: 10 000 € Means 250 Pledges at 40€. Call me Crazy if you want but I do NOT Think it's a so big threat. 250 Pledges seems easy to reach.

Since the Beginning I Want 1 thing more than any other, offer to You, Tacticians, What you want for 20 Years. I’m not a Dev neither an Editor, I’m a Conceptor. So I Prepared the ApexArena For you all.
I crazily made all the plans, going in every senses; Throwing Pencils and erasers everywhere, Stealing Paper during the Night to my neighbour, making even more plan. Aggressed people in the Street to get this precious glue, they have in their pocket …. I stopped to wash me neither take care about my hair and beard; Going even deeper each day, in Tactic. Frantically searching the Perfection, YOUR PERFECTION.
And Finally Witnessing …. the APEXARENA. When the Project was Ready and I had a little Budget I started to contact Dev Team and I found NextStead a team of Mighty Guys but Today …. they are Gone. I didn’t have enough Money, and without it they didn’t want to continue (The base was negotiated with Rev-Share, but considering the Project, There was still a big bunch of work before to get this Rev-Share …. To long, they left).
So while we are Orphans of Dev. I told me “NO WAY”, In Your Name ! The APEXARENA HAVE TO BE. So I started to pick pocket people, Break into Their Houses, attack them during the Night to get the Precious bucks they have in their Pockets (Yes Conceptors, when it’s about a project, are ready to everything) but It was the Beginning of huge problems with Policies, So I told me Maybe I should find an other plan. In jail I would not be helpful. And suddenly like an apparition (Or was it the SEO who suggested it ?) I found KickStarter and Told me: “That’s it”?
Community ? If we want the APEXARENA, The Tacticians’ Temple, to Become Real, Your fund Are Crucial. Only a successful Campaign can Bring it To You, only Your Pledge can do it, without it will never happen, and Tactic will stay 20 more Years in the Shadow …. We must Get it.
Well I know you perfectly understood what I mean, but obviously you are Smart (As every Tactician) and you are certainly asking me “But about what is it ?”. You might even tell me “If You need Our Fund we MUST have first a Presentation”. And you are Right, Which kind of Conceptor would I be If I would even not give you The Whole Description:
Starting in the coming Days
Still What about a little Teasing (It’s early early work, so don’t expect it to be Extremely Beautifull). Which Clue is hiding under this Fog ?
We don’t have News For Today (Sorry We don’t, Still I Guarantee that we will Bring to You The Next Level of the Tactical Kind) But We wish You Great Holidays.
I’m sure you got a Great gift. From a Bucket of Water or a Bread Roll To a Whole Dominion. Christmas is The Day (And the Whole Week) to Recover from Every Battles and Toughen up as Never Before, Like a True Conqueror.
Me I Got a Pencil and a Papyrus and I can not be more Happy Of it. I will be able to Prepare the Trickiest plan Ever. The Most Vicious we never Get And I guaranty That You will enjoy it.
From Rome to Alexandry, From Lutece To Sparta.
Happy Christmas Everyone
