“Look after yourself!” Top GB20 tips from Tracy

Tracy holding a 1.5m Runescape-themed swordTracy - SpecialEffect Ambassador, Golden Gnome Award winner and all-round amazing person - is back in organisation mode for GameBlast20! We asked her about GameBlast19 and for her top tips for anyone trying to organise a group.

“In 2019, the RuneScape communities came together for GameBlast. This endeavour was a truly last-minute event, with less than three weeks to pull this together, I put out the word that we needed streamers and content creators. Within hours, the amazing RuneScape community really stepped up, and some of my friends stepped in to help coordinate the huge influx of offers of help.”

“The biggest thing to know when organising any event is to know your strengths. Mine is working with people, I’ve been in sales and customer service roles for the whole of my working life, I talk, A LOT and that’s my strength. My friends have both amazing organisational skills as well as technical and IT skills and the weekend wouldn’t have happened without them. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask for help. No one is perfect. And look after yourself! It’s a fabulous feeling seeing the end product, in our case, 48 hours of continuous content, over 20 streamers, £12,000 raised and so many happy faces, but if you burn yourself out while doing it, it’s hard to smile no matter what.”

“GameBlast20 is well on its way and the United Communities of RuneScape are again banding together with other content creators and artists to again bring online a weekend of fun and gamers!“

There’s plenty of time to sign up for GameBlast20 and join in the fun!
