This summer for PugGaming will be the real moment to shine within the community as a community. We are striving to make this summer the  biggest yet for PC Gamers involved around our community.

Sponsors
-We will be starting this by rolling out our PC hardware reviews backed up by some of our new partners who will be showing support for your community by helping us provide you with the best prizes for our events along with giving you up to date information and review on the latest and best hardware available for the PC gamer. Our first review should be up on our channel this weekend for you to get a look at whats to come.

Podcast
-Our next rollout will be our popular podcast that we ran for a few months. We plan on starting these weekly live podcast back up starting next friday which should be hosted with a special guest from within the pc gaming industry. This will be the lead of many podcast to come during our coming season with many special guest who are involved and in the news within PC Gaming.

We are in contact and working with devs and members alike to bring you news and information with answers to questions you may have direct from the source. As always if you have ideas for who you wish to hear talk or answer your questions let us know.

Events
-Events within our community have been our highlight for the PC Gamers. Some have gone very well and others have gone so-so. The ones that have not gone as planned have been a learning curve for us for tournaments and events. This summer we will be hosting 4 "MAJOR" tournaments that will be hosted and backed by sponsors. This will be solid events ranging from games in which the community will vote on. Each event we host will have its dedicated website with all-in-one support for everything you will need for the tournament. This will range from team/clan chat and communication with other teams/clans to real time standings and brackets. This will fix any issue we have had in the past due to scheduling and teams not being able to contact others.

Prizing for events have been an issue in the past. As we have sent out over 2 dozen prizes others seemed to not have been as fortunate to receive their prize ( most being international based winners). Regardless after we ship out prizes we have no control when they are received. We have sorted this out and all event prizing will be backed up by sponsors to be directly shipped to the winner.

Servers
-Another community related gaming place we will be re vamping is our Game Servers. In the past we have "experimented" with several game servers to see what the community wants and supports. Our main following has been our Minecraft server which has been a big success within the community. We have plans of re hosting several game servers with the help of community appointed "Game Managers(GM)"** We believe doing this will help keep each one of our servers running strong, smooth and active as it will not longer be just one person trying to maintain the servers. Having dedicated members surveying and keeping their certain servers active and up-to-date will help everything run smooth to help us become a better "multi-gaming" community.

You will see these changes in relation to our servers being rolled up during the month of April. Once we have all servers set up with appointed members to each you will be able to enjoy a full range of games to play on with the community. This process will be a community involved process in which we will poll and take applications geared toward the Game Servers we will host. We will only appoint those who have shown trust, maturity, and leadership within the community.

Farewells & New Starts
-Here at PugGaming people come and go. With our goal to help and support any PC gamer in their own goals once members find new ways or reach theirs they find ways to move on and find better means to grow. Since our resources our limited to our own ( we plan to keep it that way by continuing to deny partnerships with other "larger" places) it is only logical and liable for them to do so.

With that being said we will be re opening applications for spots around the community that will host a range from Game Reviewer to Gaming News Writer. These spots will be unique as we will try and not only rely on one person to help out in those fields but hopefully gather a few members who are willing to help out the community by providing a few mins each day to post and do some other work around the community. You will see these applications opened the first week of this coming month.

Social Networks
-A Key to our success has always been being able to use our own resources and networks to grow and spread the word of the community. This summer we plan to utilize and expand these networks in a way that will be unique to the user and member to further get involved here at PugGaming. We plan to work this around FaceBook and YouTube in manners that will relate to special events that happen on those networks.

We understand as always not everyone has a Facebook or YouTube so as we always have any major event hosted on those will have information in regards to them here on our website. Our goal is to have one network which is the PugGaming site but until that goal can be reached we will keep using other Social sites like Facebook and YouTube to help grow the community.

  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are many other ideas we will be trying during the course of the summer with the input of members and things generated by events that happen. As always we encourage everyone to give their own ideas in what you wish to see happening at PugGaming. We are here for you and everything we do is geared for you. **The main goal of this will be to start a real community that is ran by the community and not only by myself. With the help of new "GM's" and other members we hope we can get things rolling in a better gear as we had before.

Look forward to this all!  It will be nice with the podcast back and I look forward to that review!

And more servers will be nice for people who don't care for minecraft, and will be nice to expand more into other games that a lot of us enjoy!

Summer won't be here fast enough Sad

I'm game to see the hardware reviews. Having fellow gamers who you know talking about hardware can make a difference.

Haven't heard the podcasts for a while, hoping to see that chat spam again lol.
