The Dojo's Online League is Star Trek CCG's premier online casual play group.

There are no ratings here. No hard schedules or required match-ups. No pressure to force through a full win at time for the extra VP. This is just a group of people who like playing Star Trek in all of it's forms. We see somebody we'd like to play and ask if they're up for something this week. We hop on Discord and ask if anyone's awake who'd like a game right now. And then we sit down and have some fun.

Maybe you're polishing up a deck for Regionals. Maybe you're trying to learn the ropes of online play so you can play in next month's The Dojo - Invitational Tournament Series (online Trek's most fiercely competitive event!). Maybe you've got some silly idea involving Barbering and Infiltration and you want to give it a try. Or maybe you just like the game and haven't had a chance to play it lately. Whatever you're here for, The Dojo's Online League will let you find it in a low-pressure environment with good chums who just want to have as much fun playing as you do.

Join any time, play any time. Try whatever, against whomever. You'll be fine as long as you always remember the motto of the league: Just play.

BSCWOWbagger, 03/19/18, and his thoughts on The Dojo's Online League:
I joined The League just to sort of show my support and play a game or two in preparation for taking a run at the TK Invitational. Ten days later, I'd played five late-night games against four different opponents from all over the place, with no end in sight. The ability to pick whatever deck I wanted to play at the moment (rather than being locked into the same deck for 3-4 rounds) made it so easy to just hop in, try stuff out, and have some fun without worrying about VPs or ratings or slow play. It ended up being a bit addictive, and now I'm trying to get my whole playgroup into The League!

Lore, Director of OP, 03/21/18, remarked on The Dojo's Online League:
I signed up for The League because I believe online play has been an afterthought of Organized Play for far too long. TK's mantra of "just play" falls directly inline with my goals as Organized Play Director, and I want to support both sanctioned tournament and casual play during my tenure.

Speaking more personally, I love the idea that I can play games for either edition depending on where I want to get my gaming fix. There's no downtime between rounds in The League, and no constant battles trying to find times to play opponents with incompatible schedules. You just hop online and see who's available to play at a moment's notice. It's that easy!

Caretaker's Guest, 03/26/18, had this to say about The Dojo's Online League:
I always liked online play. It needs few resources and you can chat and play with nice guys all-around the planet without spending tons of cash. Just download Lackey, install the plug-ins as instructed and you are in!. No printing, no endless search for your cards, just enter your deck! I played Kev, Kris and Ken, Greg, Stefan, Jon and many other nice and highly-competitive guys, who I forgot to mention. Online gaming gave me the chance to improve my game. I learned from each and every game played. They were all nice folks and the chats and after-game-analysis were always awesome and insightful. TK reinvented his online game series and I am very proud to be a part of it. Sometimes health requires me to concede but I wouldn't miss it for the world. TK made online-gaming great again :) . You can play it for fun, test out your fun-decks, test out your tier-1 decks, everything you like. It crosses miles and miles of distance and is a great fun. I can only advise you: Join the Dojo and aspire to become a Sensei! I just wish the CC would support it more.

Great job, TK! I'll try to continuously be a part of it.

Commander Joe, 03/27/18, told me this during his first appearance in The Dojo's Online League:
I got involved with the league because I asked a fellow Andorian to teach me how to use Lackey and he suggested I sign up. Lackey looked overwhelming to me at first but I got the hang of it very quickly. As a relatively new member of the TrekCC community, I have learned a lot in less than a month of playing in the league. From casual games to more serious games, I am exploring different cards, trying new strategies and at a faster pace than I can with local tournaments. Don't get me wrong, this game is best when played in person, but as a less experienced player, I can already tell that the league is going to up my game to the next level. Thank you TK and thank you everyone involved with allowing this game to continue to exist!!!

Hey there. Its simple. You just find an opponent by posting your desire for a game in the #scheduling channel of The Dojo, then play a game and report the results back in the #results channel of The Dojo!

That's it!
