    Is this a suggestion or bug report?:
    Suggestion

    What does this report affect?:
    Other

    Please elaborate on your suggestion:
    Alright, I've been thinking. Harpoon Gaming has a Prop Hunt server, 4 Trade servers, and a Payload server. What is another way we could expand? There's tons of game modes that TF2 withholds: Dodgeball, Zombie Fortress 2, JailBreak, Surf, Rocket Jumping servers, MGE's and more. One of the most thriving out of all of those are Dodgeball, Zombie Fortress 2, and JailBreak (IMO). If Harpoon Gaming creates one of those thriving game modes for a server, it could really help us grow and/or expand.

    Any Additional Information?:
    I play on JailBreak, ZF2, and Dodgeball A LOT. The servers are always PACKED with people. Majority of the time, you can barely get a slot! So if we pitch in to create one of these servers, Harpoon Gaming can blow up.

    If this was implemented this would be amazing. I have noticed that there are a few server that are sparsely populated most of the time. If you could do events on these servers to host gamemodes such as Zombies or dodgeball I feel like it would help bring Harpoon together. This allows the less used servers I.E. Trade Minecraft and occasionally the Payload and Unusual servers to see some use, making people hop onto the servers in hope of finding it in an event. You could set up time windows during high traffic times where you would have events running. I may just be someone who doesn't know what he is talking about, and ultimately this is a decision that staff would have to make, but I feel like this is a feature that would allow Harpoon to grow even more than it has been. I know that this would take more moderators/admins, so having timed events would allow the staff to plan when it can work, and then it would go back to the normal server after the event has ended. I hope I didn't get to wordy there. As always, shoot me any questions that you have, I may not be the man who knows the answer, but I'll do my best to find it out.

    Thank you for your suggestion, Harpoon does plan to expand and we'll keep these gamemodes in mind when that happens.
