Congrats to the Division Triple Helix for hitting yet another goal of theirs, hitting 500 members. To the Division staff this is a milestone for them. After having so few members and rebuilding, they have worked their way back up. I got the chance to talk to Reverend of XGN and XGN Spector a little bit about hitting this milestone, and also ask them about their events team.
XGN Jessi 7: “How does it feel to hit 500 members?”
Reverend of XGN: “Amazing, when I took over 3 months ago we had 40 people. Now I have almost a full Division staff and squads that are moving forward, even after attempted poaching TH remains strong.”
XGN Jessi 7: “Do you have any recently split squads?”
XGN Spector: “We split Silver to Kryption, and Genesis from Iron. We also have Onyx and Uproar is our Junior squad. We have 4 new squads with in a month and a half. Growth is big here in TH, but 500 is another great milestone to show what the division can do.”
XGN Jessi 7: “So Triple Helix has made their own events team, other than the XGN Events Team?”
XGN Spector: “The good reason for having a separate events team, is that it keeps everyone close together and creates more of a family [in TH].”
Reverend of XGN: “There are some games that weren’t being played for Headhunters that people wanted to play like Rainbow Six: Siege. XGN Spector and Erebus of XGN have put out organized event planning and the first event is this Saturday [12/17]. We wanted to create more of a family environment for our division.”
XGN Jessi 7: “What other games are played?
XGN Spector: “All sorts of games decided over a poll with the members, it could be rocket league for example its not just all squad specific games.”
Reverend of XGN: “We have all the majority of the popular games for squads but throwing in others as well.”
XGN Jessi: “When is your first event?”
XGN Spector: “First event is this Saturday on Rainbow Six Siege. The event is open to the whole squad, not just Headhunters teams. This is a 3v3 for each game and we are hoping to give a prize to the winner.”
XGN Jessi 7: “Is it going to be like Headhunters with rules? For example banned weapons and etc.”
XGN Spector: “Since it’s not Headhunters it is open play, if it were going to be like Headhunters there would be rules put in place.”
Reverend of XGN: “This was put together more for the members, to bring more activity to the division.”
XGN Jessi 7: “So each squad has a team involved?”
XGN Spector: “Right now yes, the game and what dates the tournament will be played on are planned for in advance. The events staff for the specific squad essentially chooses the members who they want to play on the team for the event.”
XGN Jessi 7: “Do you plan to create events with other Divisions?
XGN Spector: “Haven’t thought that far yet, but I can see in the future where this would be a great thing, but keeping it to TH for now to get it running. [I would] Like to keep it in TH for now because this is a way for our members to become active and become closer.”
Reverend of XGN: “We encourage our members to reach out to members from other divisions to play together as well. XGN Spector and others reached out to me and I gave them the green light, I encourage staff to come up with new ideas and they are trying to do so.”
XGN Jessi 7: “What do you see for Triple Helix in the next coming months?”
XGN Spector: “I see TH events expanding to more games, more people, and other divisions hearing about it and catching on. I can see the division splitting and getting flagship in coming months, we are passionate about growth and its bound to happen eventually.
Reverend of XGN: “We wouldn’t be able to hit each milestone without the great leaders that are being brought up, who are teaching the members who are eventually going to be our future leaders.
