To kick things off, we are partnering with our friends at L.O.T Community Servers to handle our entire server infrastructure and community related activities. This change would include a complete change of our existing admin and server team which will be handled exclusively by the L.O.T team.

While this transition is in effect, PUGs are free to play for the next few weeks.

During this free to play period, users can purchase the Elite plan for a discounted pricing of 149 INR/month and the Scrim plan for 19 INR/month and get all the features promised below when they are made available.*

This partnership will allow us to offer our subscriptions at a much lower cost along with robust team of TechOps specialists managing SoStronk’s server infrastructure on a 24/7 basis. The L.O.T team will be changing and testing various server locations on a regular basis trying to get the servers which are best for the SoStronk player base. Please be sure to give server feedback on our Discord channel.

Thats not all though, we will be working with L.O.T to introduce new features that the players will love!
