I've been waiting a long time to write this post, a number of years in fact, and it gives me great pleasure to announce that earlier this evening we turned on the first new game servers in our new Singapore location.
We already broke one hundred subscribers in the new Asia-Pacific region, and to help kick things up a notch I've given every Asia-Pacific member 25 one week guest passes to hand out to friends to help grow the new community. Forums will initially be shared with North America, and we're steadily building up a team of regional admins so we can continue to grow while remaining responsive.
I realize that Singapore isn't the one and only ideal location for the region, but it marks a strong starting point, and we're committed to growing to a number of additional locations within the region as demand continues to increase.
I speak for all of ESEA when I say to the Asia-Pacific region: we are ESEA, we are Counter-Strike, we are where the best call home -- welcome to the club.
