Project Manager of Freestyle2, Lucy is here to talk about
our 2017 future plans
and December update! <3
It is bit long, so please read carefully! (*wink*)
1. Central NA server!
Yes, finally! We are planning to move our NA server at the first quarter of 2017.
During this year, we have done various tests with many servers to find a new
server that can provide better services to our ballers. After extensive testing,
we are happy to announce that we have finally found a best server for NA region
users and are currently under way in preparing for the server move.
We will provide further details on schedules and specifics later in the future.
2. More Tournaments!
In 2017 you will be able to see even more famous Crews and FS2 Star Players
compete in big matches! First of all we are planning to have one of our biggest and
renowned yearly tournament which is the 5 week long “Super Crew Tournament”.
Since this is the biggest tournament we have, we will be giving out exclusive prizes
such as the Zip-Up Hoodie and many more for winners.
And most importantly there will be “Real Money” rewards
for this tournament!
We will also be preparing new kinds of exciting tournaments
such as an All Stars match where the great compete to be the greatest!
