    With the new server browser coming out in Overwatch, I believe we can make Pg servers over there to further expand our community. Reply down below on whether you would think that this is a good or bad idea with your reasoning. I would love to hear from all of you. We should also get Abdul to see this, as I think that this could work.

    This would be so amazing to see. I would love to have some pg dedicated servers to play on. I play OW just as much as CSGO and it's probably what I'm doing if nobody sees me playing on CSGO.

    I'm pretty sure it was kinda already decided by Abdul that we would spread to OW if they did dedicate server support. But the thing is admining. also the servers are 12 slots? only so to have any presence within it we would need a lot of servers.

    I like Converses.

    as for the server browser, I haven't seen it talk anywhere about having dedicated community servers. The server browser doesn't sound like it would be able to function with a community due to the number of servers required for the number of members we have that play and to find people that wish to admin. There isn't enough support towards them planning for community servers for it to be viable.

    Seems interesting to try. Still not sure what popular game modes will be most demanding during the opening of servers in OW. I'll keep a close eye on that

    There isn't really anything for us to expand to other than a team (or having a group of people who play together frequently).

    Honestly, both of those things can happen without official support.

    The problem with the new server browser feature for overwatch is that their not our own servers.

    We can't kick and ban the players from them and they dont stay up permanently. We would have to have someones constantly on overwatch constantly managing the gamemode in order to make it stay up.

    Sure, it would be fun to have on keep running but I don't think we could advertise pg on there.

    Its worth a shot at least
