Maintaining player enthusiasm can be tricky business for even a skilled community team. Community managers may not have much say in how a game is designed and updated, yet they have the responsibility of informing and engaging with its playerbase.

During the GDC 2017 Community Management Summit, Uken Games' Nick van Vugt empathized with this struggle and offered fellow devs tips on how to best work together with your community to combat negativity and keep players engaged and enthusiastic.

Citing specific examples from his own experiences as a community lead at Uken, van Vugt shared practical advice on minimizing toxic elements in a community and fostering positive experiences.

His talk was packed with useful takeaways, so if you missed it at GDC this year don't miss your chance to now watch it for free over on the GDC YouTube channel!

About the GDC Vault

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its new YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.
