Fifth Dimension Gaming!

Fidelity-Integrity-Camaraderie-Excellence! The best place to game!


Hello and Happy New Year,

I hope all is well with you as Fifth Dimension Gaming enters its 7th year!

It has been a while since there has been a Community Update. Although I have not been in game as much as in the past, I am still active and have my "eye on the ball" to continue to grow. Growth would not be possible without your participation. I appreciate your efforts.

In the last Calendar year we added 428 members to the website. Over 500 on each Discord and TeamSpeak. There is some overlap.

Our largest group continues to be Warships and second, Tanks. We have added support to several new games and are in need of Admins, Moderators, Callers and Recruiters for these, namely Fortnite, Battlefield V, Conqueror's Blade, Overwatch, Player's Unknown Battlegound, League of Legends, etc. Most of the players for these games are on Discord. We will continue to add games as they come out. Please let me know if there is a game you would like to see or lead.

2 games are being re-invigorated: Star Citizen and War ThunderStar Citizen and War Thunder. Star Citizen had moved its comms to Discord. War Thunder is on both voice platforms. Star Citizen, the game, is playable and still is in development. We have started recruiting again. Our organization is found here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/orgs/FFDCITIZEN For War Thunder please contact mikemjk to get involved with that group. War Thunder group in game is: -5D-

I plan on downsizing the website when I am able. I will keep all the basics, have a generic application and forums. This is not high on my priority list but will eventually get done.

Our success is based on several reasons:

#1 is you! #1 is you! Our Community Members are the best out there. This goes a long way to providing a great place to game. Everyone is here to have a good time. We help each other out online and in real life too. We are a family.

There are other reasons as well:

  • 2) Stability - we started over 6 years ago and have grown steadily since. Our leadership is stable and has provided guidance towards our success.
  • 3) Voice Platforms - Our TeamSpeak is probably one of the most consistently active over the last 6 years. When people enter for the first time they are impressed by the size and organization as well as the number of online members 24/7. Lets keep this up. Our TeamSpeak is not going anywhere. I hope to replicate its success in our Discord.
  • 4) No Drama - We abhor drama and quash it quickly.
  • 5) No Dues -
    It costs nothing to belong. There are generous members who contribute money to help defray the costs. They are appreciated and we could not do it without them. There is no requirement to donate money.

    If you can not donate, there are many other ways to contribute including always representing Fifth Dimension in a good light, recruiting more members, being active in TeamSpeak and Discord and helping each other out.

I do need some help in a couple of areas going forward:

1) Discord -
Discord is free, better voice quality, has a free phone app, you can voice chat, post messages, stream, synch with Spotify, video chat, etc. Our Discord has over 500 members, usually over 100 logged in at any given time. It has taken me about a year to build this up. I would like to reach 1,000 in the next few months. The numbers do make it easier to recruit members but more will stick and be active if there is activity in the voice channels.

I request that all of our members download the Discord client and join our Discord and idle in a voice channel while online.I request that all of our members download the Discord client and join our Discord and idle in a voice channel while online.I request that all of our members download the Discord client and join our Discord and idle in a voice channel while online. An active Discord will only help everyone add numbers to their groups. This is not a lot to ask. I have placed some links below to help you get started. If you have any questions let me know. When entering please let me know the game and region and I'll get your roles set.


2) Admins, Moderators, Recruiters and Callers- I am looking for all of these for our new games to build them into successful groups. Please contact me here or on Discord.

3) Your continued support in growing the Community in any way that is productive.

For the members on Discord, you can show your support by adding [5D] before your name. We're almost five-thousand strong!
