The best and fastest way to improve is by applying consistent effort with a competitive mindset in a supportive environment. We want to provide that environment by fostering a community of likeminded individuals, as well as rewarding and encouraging those who commit to long term improvement with additional benefits and opportunities.
PECO operates a public Discord server for easy text, voice, and video chat, as well as screen sharing and file sharing. Although the server is open to the public, and all regular coaching sessions happen on the Discord and there are additional channels and benefits on the server available to those in the membership program.
Within our Discord members have the option to sign up for our "Buddy" system. This system operates as a group forum where individuals can meet, share their goals, keep each other accountable, and overall help each other improve!
Members have access to coaching specific channels such as our Community Coaching channel where members can volunteer coaching services to one another in a competitive focused environment. There is also the Coaching Hotline where members directly post any coaching related questions to be answered by other members of the community, including PECO Staff!
Every Monday PECO hosts a panel with some of our coaching staff (and sometimes special guests!) to answer questions from our members live! This is followed by our organized PUGs (Pick-up Games) where you can enjoy some friendly competition with fellow members and a chance to play some games with our staff.
In addition to our weekly scheduled PUGs every Monday, we are looking to launch more regular PUG times so more members can join in on the fun! Members can also sign up to be a dedicated Lobby Leader and run their own PUGs in the PECO server.
For those looking to take their first step beyond ranked and into a team environment we've organized the Member Melee. Members who sign up will be drafted onto balanced teams and assigned a community coach to duke it out on broadcast! For more information check out our Member Melee section of the Discord or ask one of our Staff.
No, neither Twitch Subscriptions nor YouTube Memberships count as a PECO Membership. The revenue we collect from the membership program is used to fund a number of community initiatives. By hosting our own membership program with Memberful instead of Twitch or YouTube, we are able to put a larger portion of the membership proceeds towards our initiatives and events.
