    Hey everyone! So I've been floating around the idea of renting a server for awhile now and decided to finally go for it.

    Here's a little announcement video:

    as well as our reddit post:

    I'm splitting the server with The Wounded Stapler, one of my friends from YouTube. We both live on the west coast of the US, but decided to put the server in Denver, CO in hopes the connection would be ok for people on the east coast as well.

    We'd love to populate the server with some regulars and really want that community feeling. So hopefully you guys will check it out if you ever notice some people playing.

    As far as custom maps go, it's something we're currently looking into. Neither one of us has much server experience, but it is definitely a goal of ours to host some custom maps we're fond of. It seems every time I upload a custom map, I screw something up, so if any of you have server experience, let me know! :D

    So far for custom maps we're looking at:
    cp_sunshine
    pl_borneo
    koth_quarry
    arena_suijin

    We'd like to have a wide variety of gamemodes, but we're not looking for anything gimmicky (maybe for event days). As of right now, we're only accepting maps in Release Candidate, so keep that in mind if you'd like to submit your map.

    So that's pretty much it! Hope you guys will pop in from time to time and let us know how we're doing. If you're interested in helping moderate the server, let me know!

    Thanks guys. :)

    Server IP: projectm.game.nfoservers.com:27015

    Joined the server to see what ping I got. Got 50-60! Yay! Hurry and get those custom maps on there and I'll join.

    Are you going to do any sort of event to get people on the server?

    You should definitely put ctf_haarp or ctf_vector on your map list, it's a underrated yet fun as hell custom gamemode!

    It's on my list of maps to look into, but I thought it was still in beta? If not, I'll toss it on there.

    Edit: Totally rc2 right now. Downloading.

    I'm tryiiiiing! There are a few RC maps hiding in the Map Workshop, but I wasn't up for sifting through them, so I just browsed the Showcase.
