Welcome to Ready Player One! We are a social networking affiliate style organization designed as a community tool for our members. Originally founded as an alternative to the RSI forums on Facebook, this Org is our in ‘Verse presence. We are Org-neutral, friendly, & a great place to keep up to date!
Created back in September of 2013, our group originally started on Facebook as a general Star Citizen repository and mirror for all things Star Citizen, and related. From it’s humble beginnings, our group has grown to over 2200 members (and still growing).
Back in the day it was still rather quiet, but as the RSI forums exploded, and have become more and more overrun, our group has grown into the role of safe haven where members can talk openly, share cool cherry picked SC content, get help with anything related to our favorite game without all the headaches of General Chat.
The SC group has been re branded into its current form to serve as an in universe extension of the community tool on Facebook. The name Ready Player One was picked as an honorary hat tip to the excellent book of the same name, the concept of which is somewhat mirrored by the entire epoch to the gaming industry and high fidelity VR gaming that Chris Roberts is bringing to life with Star Citizen.
Since those humble days, the SC Facebook group (largest one there is, have a quick search), we have grown and engaged the community as a networking platform with a grand vision. We don’t just aim to be another source of news and chat, we aim to grow a culture focused around people and connections. Regardless of your in game alignment or opinions.
Equally so, in the vein of networking, The Star Citizen ReadyPlayer1 Network has expanded its associations beyond Facebook into many venues that will be of use post game launch.
Feel free to app to either or both the FB group or SC Org. Spammers and drama need not apply, pretty much the only guiding principle. Enjoy!
Please take a look at our rapidly expanding network of community associations, and look over our plans for the future! :) We’re transparent, friendly, and looking to be a community environment first and foremost. Here is the link to our detailed Mind Map outlining all you’d need to know. For ever..and maybe ever.
TO STEAL ALL THE BASE!
