Hello and Happy New Years everyone! It’s been quite a year, full of many surprises, but we hope it was nothing short of being great for each and every one of you! Now we know this hasn’t been done in a while, but we want to get back into some good old habits, and starting this year, we will be releasing a newsletter at the end of every month, to recap everything that happened, and give a little teaser into what’s in store for Pulsar in the near future.
In this edition, we're going to go over the videos we released in January, discuss the Pulsar Winter Recruitment Challenge, Member of the month (which will be ongoing, so next month it could be you!), Game of the month, and a quick look at current Fortnite placements. We hope you enjoy January’s newsletter everyone! :)
n this editio The Pulsar Winter Recruitment Challenge started back on November 25, 2022, where our community was given a chance to win free merchandize, HyperX and OP products, a signing bonus, and of course a spot on the team! This challenge lasted until January 4th, and winners were then announced on the 14th. It was a hard decision, and all the content that was submitted was amazing, but there could only be two winners.
Some honorable mentions were given the opportunity to join Pulsar Future, so congratulations and welcome to the following new PSF Members!
And a huge congratulations to now PSR Strauz and PSR Lapsyy, who were the winners of the #PulsarWinter RC! They both have been in the Pulsar community for a long time, and their grind has definitely paid off with this well deserved win. We are happy to have you both graduate from PSF to PSR <3

Member of the Month
For the month of January we want to recognize Jay for his recent hard work and commitment. Jay has been on the team since March 2021, and more recently joined the Main Team management in April 2022. We are recognizing Jay for his incredible amount of positivity and support towards everyone, and his work ethic; completing tasks when none were expected to be done. Overall, Jay is a talented team manager, and an incredibly supportive team member and community member–always hyping up and being there for both team and community members alike–which is why Jay is January’s Member of the Month.
We would like to take a quick moment to show our love and support to PSR Chip & PSR Komander in their recent placements! The team is very proud of you and wish you luck in upcoming games.
Game of the Month - Overwatch 2.0!
Overwatch 2.0 has become one of the more popular free-to-play games of 2023, with player counts in the past 30 days exceeding more than 23,600,000 million active players and around 175,000 concurrent players at any given hour. Although these are impressive numbers for a game backed by a company like Blizzard, it didn’t start out this way. Problems like bugs, server connectivity, and lack of content turned players away and because of the delay to fix these issues, Overwatch 2.0 reached 25 million players slower than competitors like Call of Duty’s Warzone 2, Apex Legends, and League of Legends. Towards the end of 2022 however, Blizzard has promised more communication with its fanbase and has also confirmed that a new character can be expected every alternate season, with Rammatra being the last player to join the roster. With Blizzcon returning in person for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, many suspect that this is the time that Blizzard will announce updates to the game for the latter part of 2023 and the start of 2024.
Did you know? Blizzard is offering cosmetics for Moira as part of the Lunar Chinese New Year, included in the Twitch Drop promotion. How do you unlock these cosmetics? To unlock the Moira Lion Roars pose, watch 2 hours of Overwatch 2.0 streams that have drops enabled, and, to unlock the Legendary Moira Mask Dancer Skin, watch 4 hours of Overwatch 2.0 streams that have drops enabled. Let us know what you think, thanks!
