2021 Recap: Thank You EdgeGamers

2021, the long-awaited sequel to 2020 is both bigger and badder... both numerically and literally! While the world continues to be in shambles, the show must go on and it certainly did! From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, this community has kept up its support towards one another, from the newest of recruits to the oldest of managers. We wouldn't be where we are today without the help of all the amazing people in this community and would like to take this time to celebrate the times we were able to have together, from the darkest of nights to the brightest of days. Let's take a look back at what 2021 had to offer!



Leadership Quotes

"What's been your team's biggest achievement in the year 2021?"
Tech
@Andrew - "With the promotion of Gabe and moving myself over I think our biggest achievement was better internal documentation. + Award System + Dark Mode."

CS:GO
@santa - "Our biggest achievement was that we had 5 of our servers being top 25 in all of csgo and CSS"
@Left - "Hosting lots of solid and fun events for CS as well as growing our EC Team."

Overwatch
@Buster - "It was a very productive year, a lot has changed for the better all around. I am proud of our team for keeping our discord constantly active, friendly, and exciting"
@b t - "I think creating a massive friendly, respectful, and fun environment in a little over a year since our start in October. People sticking around and supporting the discord server sticks out for me. Not just admins, but long-time members have been around for a while."
@EDisch222 - "The biggest achievement for Overwatch is how large the discord community grew. I've personally met a bunch of new friendly faces and I'm excited to see what 2022 has in store."
@gabby - "My teams greatest achievement is probably growing our player base and keeping everything running smoothly"

TF2
@DrkChocolate - "Well we started the process in late 2020, but I think it would be taking the TF2 servers from being on the verge of being shut down because of low stats, to having all 3 stable and very reasonable stats. If ya want to see how bad it was, I have a sheet. We shut down only one server and that was one that we had just opened up. But we lost a lot of LE and players after the merger and we worked very hard to get players back and bring in new ones."

D2
@a simple slice of bread -Destiny's biggest achievement of 2021 was reaching 500 members in our discord!

Rust
@Godzilla - "Max our server slot to 100"
@redchance - "Moving our server to a new IP, and hitting 120 players on the server at one time back in last January"

GTA
@Oblixion - "Our team's biggest achievement in the year 2021 would be our transition from being a public server to being whitelisted. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our leaders, not only did we achieve large improvements in server functions and performance, we consolidated the all-around feeling of community in GTA."

Media
@heidi - "Media Teams biggest achievements for the year 2021 is really becoming organized with projects. Organization and revamping guides have allowed us to find specific goals we want to reach monthly. We started 3 new Media Team projects, being the Supported Game Rundowns, Game Overviews, and Themed Art Articles. We had many new Leadership members join our team, which has helped us speed up the progress of our goals."
@webby - "Media Team has struggled in terms of building a self-sustainable environment from a Leadership standpoint, as well as retaining members for the different departments within it. This year, we have done a GREAT job at retaining our members, and making sure there are things to do. Adding new, creative articles definitely helped. Also, revamping the socials & rebuilding the art department was a big success this past year!"

MS
@Architect of Life - "The rollout of a new team dynamic which includes our efforts in both events and in our newer program of member relations"
@Grumpy Kitten - "Member Services biggest achievement this year was finally getting rid of Andrew ;)"

It was just a collection of gamers, hanging out, shooting the breeze. Just because we had a common interest, and used it to make new friends. That's pretty darn cool.

gabby (OW) - my favorite memory has to be getting manager. I was with Wish and Star and Buster and we all did a mustoreo together on call with a bunch of other LE
