My name is Jenny, and I am the Server Licensing Manager at OWI. Welcome to our second edition of the server spotlight. This feature will highlight some of the community servers that we think you may want to check out, share information about them, and show what they are up to or where they excel.
Whether they are old or new, it’s always good to highlight the fantastic stuff our established server owners are doing every day.
We started as a group of friends who wanted to bring a better squad experience through communication and teamwork. We are a casual new player community who love to play squad and have fun together. Whether you are a brand new player or have hit the 1000+ hour club, everyone is welcome as long as you want to have fun or get involved with our scrims and events.
We host two servers:
-[CI] Corrupted Infantry [EU/ENG]
-[CI] Corrupted Infantry | Events Server
Events- We host weekly events such as scripted events, new game modes, mod playthroughs such as new factions or maps, and one life events! We make our mods on the SDK, meaning that anything is possible!

Jenny’s Notes: I recently visited their server and found it to be warm and welcoming. The admins are supportive and friendly to their community and engage players to enjoy different types of events they create using the game. I would highly recommend checking out their server and what they have to offer.
Next up, we have:
[|56|] Canadian Gaming first started back in 2003 during the golden age of Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault when West was but a wee 12-year-old lad. The community was steady for years, eventually moving into the original Call Of Duty. Unfortunately, a dark day arrived with the launch of World Of Warcraft. And due to the wave of addiction, that game caused the first iteration of the 56th folded due to lack of activity. Fast forward to 2017, and after joining a few squad clans and having them not feel right, a few of us decided to strike out on our own, which led to the rebirth of the first and foremost Canadian specific squad community.
Our group has grown from 5 guys deciding to pay up for our own box to a community of over 2000 members and consistently ranking both of our servers in squad’s top 10. The communities’ generosity led to our ability to host servers over multiple games, donate thousands to various charity events, host giveaways, and real-life meet-ups, including Banff, Alberta, and Philadelphia, where 56 foots a big chunk of the bill. All players are welcome, from brand new players to 2500 hour vets. Between both servers, you are sure to find something matching your playstyle. We look forward to having you guys stop by and hope you enjoy your time with us.
Jennys Notes: When I visited their server, I received a huge warm welcome. They help players focus the players on the game. They create lots of lovely events for players to try out and the admins are active and supportive to players that join their server. I would highly recommend checking out their server and what they have to offer.
And the final recommendation I would like to make:
Our community started this summer as a joint project of several clans.
We discussed the way we would like things to go, the kind of administration we would like to see covered, and all the other shenanigans we would need for a server to run appropriately and community-friendly. These initially loose discussions led to the point where we are right now – and we believe we created a sound base for our community to grow further, prosper, and jointly shape upcoming approaches.
Since we came about from different clans, we all have a different Squad vision, a great game.
Thinking about what every one of us has in common about that is mainly the large scale communication the game requires, meaning it is necessary to forge out different tactics to overwhelm our foes and allow us to have a lot of fun in general.
Trying to think about what makes us extraordinary, the best explanation would be how our clans and players thrive within the given constellation. We have amazing people in our community who contribute valuable input they gained through their professions in real-life. We also enjoy amazing rounds that are compelling for everyone that plays. From CMD to Rifleman, everyone does his thing to reach the final goal.
Jenny’s notes: I received a very warm welcome when I joined the server, and the admins were keen to get some feedback after my visit. The teams worked well together, and the admins encouraged players to communicate and helped new players on the server with us. I highly recommend checking this server out and have some games with this community.
