Even though we plan to provide our own "official" servers for casual and competitive matches, there's built in support for creating a custom server at a variety of locations. You can edit settings such as map lists and round options at any time directly in-game. These servers will also be organized by region allowing you to connect with players closest to you and build communities that play more consistently.
When creating a custom server a wide range of time options are available so you only pay for what you use. You can also reserve a dedicated server on a monthly basis where you'll be assigned a private IP address. Your server will be provisioned in about 5 minutes if one is not already available. It includes support for bots as well so you can make use of your server until it starts to fill up.
