New startup aims to be the TripAdvisor of online gaming
Sunday, September 6, 2015
Findgamingbuddies.com is a place that is already helping a lot of online gamers out there to find good, genuine gaming partners without the trolls. We address the problem gamers have during gameplay in having to deal with a lot of poor team play, abuse and generally immature behaviour from other online players. We are all about helping people find good players online. The idea is very simple: players create a free profile on the findgamingbuddies site that helps other players find them. They list the games they're currently playing, age range, country, and even level of expertise so that people can find the right kind of gaming partner. Once they've found a match, they can message via the site and arrange to play. What makes findgamingbuddies unique is that players can leave ratings and reviews of other players they've gamed with, so people know more about the person they're choosing to play with. Members are free to search and contact whoever they like, as often as they like. The rating system means that members can make an informed choice on who to contact and who to game with. The service is also over 18 only - we aim to be a responsible site that chose not to abet access to 18-rated content by younger players. We're also a free site with no outside funding or affiliation to any gaming companies. The story so far is we launched the site on the 28th of June 2015. We've gained over a hundred and fifty members within the first month through social media and word of mouth recommendation, and we've been grateful that the feedback has been very positive and enthusiastic.
