EdgeGamers 2020 Recap. Thank you, EdgeGamers. - January 11th, 2020

This year has been troubling for most - some out of work, some out of school. With all this craziness surrounding our world, we all come together and share the same common interests. Gaming. We have all opted into joining a community of gamers that is supportive, unique, kind, and punk-free. Life as we know will never be the same, but EdgeGamers is proud to be with you during the hard times. We are impressed and excited by everyone’s efforts over the past year and we are excited for 2021. We have made tremendous efforts to give you a more enjoyable experience on our servers and groups. We love to see you all enjoying these efforts, that many people have worked hard towards achieving. Please take time to thank those around you! While it has been a rough year, you made the most of it. Happy New Year and thank you. Here's to 2021!
