Badlion's First Growth Spurt

For the entire history of Badlion we have remained an independent server who always did what was best for the community and not what is best for certain people. The first big youtubers that discovered Badlion and helped us to grow were the Cube group starting with DField and TheCampingRusher. We were very good friends with this group of youtubers as they very much so believed in creating a better Minecraft community together. We always worked together, and never for each other. There was never an official affiliation such as Partners, just our old Youtube/Twitch/Famous/Famous+ ranks. We all just did what we felt was best for the players and the community, this is how we still feel that content creators should act and behave. Good sportsmanship, no toxicity, and overall having fun are the most important attributes that all good content creators should have.

I thought it would be valuable to teach a bit of Badlion history to the community so people can understand how we think and act here at Badlion.

How the Partners did Help to Grow Badlion and Long Term Effects

The largest success we saw from the Partner program was at the start of each partner joining the network. It brought a small bump to our player count each time we added someone. Over the course of time though the partners started to lose opportunities to gain new players to their audiences, and we were not gaining new players either. Asking a player to directly affiliate themselves with a Minecraft server really does neither party good in the long run and actually rather damages both. Something ESL and Badlion internally have noticed is when a content creator partners with any particular server that their overall growth declines over a period of time compared to their growth beforehand. As a result of this observation we want to set all of our partners "free" and let them continue to grow again instead of limiting their potential.

No More Partners

Today we have decided to go back towards these mutual relationships in a non-official manner and have decided to end the partner program. In two weeks from this announcement all of the partners will be out of their existing contracts. We have nothing but undying gratitude for our partners as they have all done a great job to help advertise and grow Badlion. We hope that all of these people who have worked with us more closely in a partnership will continue to grow and become bigger and better than they were here with us at Badlion.

We don't want to limit the people who feel welcome at Badlion though, and this is what has happened by us creating the partner program in the first place. Many of the Badlion regulars and Badlion grown players have recently went elsewhere since they did not feel welcome here at Badlion. We are sorry that this is how things unfolded, but rest assured all of our remaining content creators here at Badlion are still welcome here.

The Players Come First

Badlion will always be a home for all players, but we will always put the players first. We don't believe in giving special treatment to certain people and we will never kiss up to the people who are uploading content of our servers. This is just not the Badlion way. We want people to create content of Badlion because it is the best content for their viewers and not because they are being paid to do it.

Conclusion

That all being said I would like to thank all of our partners for believing in Badlion and we hope that they all continue to believe in Badlion and all of the great things that are coming in Badlion 2.0. I know everyone is excited about the big changes coming and this is just the beginning of them. We are returning more towards our roots and doing more than ever before with our huge development team.
