This Warning Shot will also test a new organizational format within the ever-growing MGSR community. For the first time, an event will be transparently organized by a team of volunteers through the community discord. All participants will be involved in everything from technology, graphics, social media and moderation. The goals? Distribute the workload between as many people as possible and offer spectators a great show.
