SteemGamingCommunity - A group for gamers on Steam

in #gaming4 years ago (edited)

Hey everyone,

Today I am here to announce something I've been thinking about for a while now. I see a lot of gamers on Steem nowadays and I've even played a couple of games with some fellow Steemians in the past. To avoid confusion I will refer to Steem as is but Steam as "SteamValve".

I've been thinking of ways to make it easier for Steemians that like to play or would like to start playing to connect with each other and I've come up with something that might make it a lot easier.

Announcing the "SteemGamingCommunity"(SteemGC).

SteemGC is a group on SteamValve that I created to try and gather some gamers to play together. The idea is that once we have a few players I will also start creating events for matches and along the way even tournaments depending on the amount of interest.

If you are already part of a group, don't worry! You can be a part of multiple groups on SteamValve and even change your clan tag in between matches.

Also there is the issue of people living too far away from each other to play together but this is also easily fixed in the future by renting servers on e.g Counter-Strike: Global Offensive which is actually pretty affordable and holding the matches and/or tournaments on those.


As some of you might have noticed, when I play online I usually have the clan tag "Steemit.com" before my nickname. If you choose to join the new group the clan tag will be "SteemGC". To take a look at the group and request to join you can click on the link below to be redirected to the group page(To be able to join the group you are required to be registered on SteamValve).

SteemGamingCommunity Group Page

I am still working on the group page and there will be updates coming shortly but I thought I would at least start with an announcement post to see how much interest there is. At the moment SteamValve offers a lot of functions for groups such as a discussions page, a chat room, announcements and also a scheduler for events.

In the beginning this group will mainly be an easy way for everyone to find players for a full team when they want to play since this can be quite challenging sometimes. Also a fun little way of connecting with other Steemians that are also interested in gaming. With DLive there will also be the opportunity to stream said matches for other Steemians to watch.

The group will be restricted for now which means you can request to join from the link I provided earlier. The only requirement at the moment to join is that you have a SteamValve account and of course a Steemit account.

SteamValve changed their rules for group invites a while back and it's impossible to invite users that you are not friends with on the platform. Everyone who is interested can however go to the group page I provided and request to join.

I've planned to create a Discord channel for the group in the future and also a bunch of other great ideas that I have but first things first. If enough people join in there will be some tryout games being played shortly after.


The logo is only temporary and was made using "FlamingText" because I'm terrible at graphic design.

Please let me know what you think about this kind of an idea and if you are interested then click on the link and request to join. We'll be waiting for you.

If you have any ideas or tips that could improve this project then please let me know in the comments below or contact me on Steemit.chat! Looking forward to playing for the best team of Steem.

Hope you're all having a great week so far.

This seems interesting, would like to suggest something.

There are gamers like myself who are restricted to play for free games reason my country dont support most of the payment available via steam, the gift game option could come handy here.

Say set up a group where users can purcase games from steam via sbd.

So the idea is we send/transfer sbd to another user who is able to purchase game via steam and in return in purchase the game in form of gift for us.

This should widen the gaming community to those who are yet to have paid games.

Would like your feedback

That's a great idea. Didn't even think about restrictions like that. We have a chatroom here where I can create one chat for this purpose.

Join any time if you wanna try it out :)

Thanks for your input! I will keep this in mind and hopefully it will help you get some great games :)

would really appreciate that, currently on mobile would join immediately I switch to pc

If I had some free liquid money, I would help out.

The reason for region restrictions is this:

They have different price policies depending on the region!

This is one of the best things any global company could do. It is an example to be followed.

A game that costs five dollars in the US may cost the equivalent of 2 dollars in another country. This is due to different economies. A simple currency conversion would make games more expensive in developing countries.

Once people discovered that, they were taking advantage by using proxies or asking friends to buy games for them then sending the keys ...

They decided to do region block because this.

This is awesome, giving an opportunity for people to pay the right amount for a game, based on their local economy.

I would love to visit there. Great article!

Hopefully there will be an extension to other platforms such as Blizzard games perhaps? But I know that will be quite awhile since with SteamValve alone, it will be a handful. Hopefully soon maybe...

This is awesome by the way! Full on support!

I play some Blizzard games to actually so it might be a good idea. Maybe we can migrate to Discord instead and have chats for the different gaming platforms there! :)

Thanks alot :)

Now I am all fired up! :)

This seems like a really great idea!
Combined with @dlive this could get pretty popular quick and we could even be forming esport teams for Steemians and stream on multiple platforms or at least broadcast them elsewhere too!

Will be fun to play with some other Steemians who decide to join!

Yeah I think it could be really great :D

Looking forward to some games

I've been streaming on Smashcast for over a year now. My streams are every Tuesday and Thursday, usually starting between 8-9PM, UTC-6. It's been a long, slow grind to gaining more viewers, but I'm finally starting to carve out my niche.

Smashcast supports teams like Twitch does, and their staff are pretty awesome people. Perhaps we could see some overlap with Steemians? I'd create a Steemian team on Smashcast for those of us who like to broadcast...

This is an awesome idea, I’d love to hang out with more fellow pc gamers!

You're welcome to join any time! :)

Very good news. I sent a request to join

Welcome to SteemGC

I also like games. right now I'm always focused on the game and I've made posts about the game in these few hours. if you want to see my poating, I am very grateful to you

Hey! Sent a request to the group.

I’m down, I’ll request to join when I get home. Last night I started streaming my first real Skyrim play through, I’d be happy to join up with other steemians for some fun and games.

Sounds great man! :D and wow I wish I could unplay Skyrim just to play it again! Enjoy.

Just a couple of weeks and I will probably have a bit more time to play.
Right now busy with a lot of things((
But idea is good, I fully support it, man :D

Thanks man :D

Hi, I liked the idea of bringing all the gamers together, but what all games are included, do you have DOTA or any strategy games as well? Please keep me posted on this as I am very much interested.

Well it's pretty much up to the players what everyone wants to play :)

This is music to my ears :D
If we want to make Steemit even bigger and better this is exactly what is going to do just that!
Nothing better than connecting with fellow Steemians and playing games :)
great idea!

That's exactly right. :)

Thank you!

I'm comin dude wait for me, Just a sec. I have mount your friends and undertale on steam!

Great Idea you have just shared, Steemit community and morever games in it would be the best idea. Combining this with dtube would be a much more greater idea. Looking forward to it.
