    2. Shifting our Focus, new director, purge, and more

      A change in our direction   A few of you might have noticed that the Council role was removed. This is the result of some internal changes that occurred earlier today. It has become clear to us that we have become increasingly focused on our teams and the council rather than the servers. We have decided this combined with the drama caused by it does not serve our mission of providing a high quality gaming experience to our players, so we have decided that it would be best if we cut down and simplified. We believe that in order to best accomplish this, we needed to remove council. We also have a few other changes to the structure of teams that will be dropping after appropriate internal discussion has taking place. The specifics are TBD and TBA, though we hope to simplify the structure significantly. The last thing we have changed internally so far is trusted. We have removed some members of trusted who we felt were not very active or otherwise didn't really fit with the team. Trusted will now be chosen by directors from members who are interested in helping GFL move forward. We're looking for people that we can trust, give constructive feedback, and active within the community. There will not be any applications for this role however.   I would however like to take a moment and thank the following individuals for their time and dedication:   @Worgee @Joel @Kite9867 @VirusKing   Kite9867 will be staying as co-leader of moderation along with Benroy. I am uncertain of the plans of the other three.   Promotions   Speaking of @Ben Roy, I'd like everybody to welcome him to Director. He has remained dedicated to GFL for a long time now and has done some excellent work with discord. We hope he continues his good work as director!   Transparency   In addition to the other changes we have acted on, we would like to work on improving transparency. I would like to advocate that all staff begin using trello again so that we can communicate the current projects that are being worked on to the public.   Currently we only really have a trello for the directors, which has not been updated for quite some time, but I am going to push for this to change soon.   Directors: https://trello.com/b/890AW0QM/team-directors   Do take into consideration that some things will naturally be kept private regardless.   Concerning Team Members   This bit really only concerns team members, but in interest of transparency, I'm going to write this here rather than make another post. We have decided to remove Team Members from the staff discord. So you have not been kicked in error. Communication will be done through the public discord and the PR discord. You can join the public discord by clicking this link: https://discord.gg/qqpM47e   If you are a team member and need a link to the PR discord, message me for an invite. As of now, nobody has been demoted from teams nor has any team been dissolved.   Conclusion   If you have questions, comments, or concerns. please comment on this thread. I will be doing my best to address concerns and questions as they arise. However, we would like to avoid arguments or fights, so please do not do that.   Thanks!

    3. GFL Newsletter - December 2018

      If you missed a lot of things going on in the community, then good news! This newsletter will get you caught up with the things that went through this December.Promotions Two people returned to Director positions: Xy - According to the announcements, he returned to the position to assist with the Director team, now that he has free time. Snoopy - He returned as Director to help and work with them to get GFL back in its positive 2015 position.     New CS:GO Division LeaderWe’ve got a new face in the GFL higher-ups—his name is VirusKing. He originally came back to help with our Rust server—although it is only vanilla, it required a little maintenance and VirusKing had plenty of time to resolve this. He expressed interest in our 1v1 server and, after giving him access, he fixed up the server quickly. The server is doing quite well now, leading to a new UK-hosted 1v1 server being opened. Click here to join CS:GO Division Discord   New Team Leaders Earlier in December, Joel and Queue were promoted to Team Leaders. - Queue currently leads TS3 moderators. - Joel assists with all Team Leaders.   EventsAbout Overwatch and event information GFL is often known for many of its Garry’s Mod, CS:GO, and CS:S servers, but have you heard of the Overwatch division? Overwatch is a game centered on a set team of fighters with a range of special abilities, different fighting styles, and overall different weaponry and playing schemes with many opportunities for anyone to play as. Officially, Overwatch is generally recognized as a team-based multiplayer FPS with several characters with their own unique personalities and backgrounds. The game takes inspiration from Team Fortress 2 (although Overwatch was produced by Blizzard and TF2 was produced by Valve). Overwatch rose to fame when it revitalized the team-based multiplayer FPS genre, but in a brand new layout; new characters, new techniques, everything.   The Overwatch Division is centered on GFL’s presence within Overwatch, and GFL itself has many plans for its Overwatch server. Many events have either been scheduled or brought up numerous times that the masters themselves have taken a look at the idea. As of 12/14/18, the server is even rumored to have a 3v3 competition with amazing prizes fitted for the winners, even involving other communities to join in and partake in the fun! Overall, the Overwatch division is small yet thriving, having its own little community and receiving positive feedback from its community.     This article will be posted in any new changelogs and changes that you’ve missed from the server managers.   Breach Changelogs, planned by January 2019. - Backend changes to make future updates possible - Secondary round type for Site 13 (Main thing) - SCP-610 revamp - SCP-096 animations and buff (ability to break through doors?) - SCP-334 model, current one looks like fucking shit - SCP-079 UI revamp and additional SCP-079. (Possible) Site 13 support for SCP-079. - Various items for the Site 13 round type that will also make their way in to regular gameplay on other maps. - Various MTF Squads for the Site 13 round type, some of which will make their way into regular gameplay on other maps   Prop Hunt The recently revived Prop Hunt is doing great and is getting up there with TTT activity. We are constantly improving and adding different ideas based off of what the community wants and is a great place to relax.   Hide and Seek Changes were made in December, showing recently around Christmas week:  The return of the long-loved, long-awaited xmas_downtown. Custom textured Christmas hats (red and green) to go with the season, along with matching candy-cane jump packs and other festive amendments Two custom, completely originally drawn masks. Two custom made, original festive trails. Perfect for showing off the colorful chaos of Christmas in-game. The (now passed) Christmas event, handing out one gift on the daily.   Notable non-holiday additions: Mysterious 'challenge trails' A custom, completely new map-vote made by Fafy   Minecraft The server will be opened tomorrow by Jan. 1st, so don’t miss it! Future events will be coming after the launch, such as raids to fight bosses.  CS:GO Divisional Updates The division itself is going pretty well. US and UK Surf Timer and 1v1 Arena are starting to succeed with the slots getting filled up, and there is a new Discord launched for CS:GO, which originally was for 1v1 Arena. JailBreak is under WIP and VirusKing is currently leading the project. The server is next to be released.   Future servers In 2019, servers like Bunny Hop will be worked on/launched after Jailbreak is released. GMod Divisional UpdatesMore about this can be found here. A new server was released, managed by GlorifiedPig, called “Don’t Blink” and is located in Europe. The IP Address is 185.177.22.161:27019   - The League of Legends division is up and we have weekly in-house events. We are looking for some dedicated members to help run the events more consistently. - We are in need of more writers! If you're interested, click here.

    5. New CS:GO Division Leader

      Hi everyone,   I just wanted to announce our new CS:GO division leader, @virusking. VirusKing initially came back to help with our Rust server. However, due to it being a vanilla server, it required little maintenance and VirusKing had plenty of more time. He expressed interest in our 1v1 server and after giving him access, he fixed up the server quickly. The server is doing quite well now:     VirusKing has also been helping with the other servers in the division such as Surf Timer the last couple weeks and has been doing a great job. I personally need help in the division and recently have became exhausted as the only acting CS:GO division leader. I believe this will help the division and we'll be able to get things done quicker.   One goal VirusKing and I have is training our managers on the technical aspect of game servers. We will be making guides and knowledge base articles for our server managers and I'm hoping this can spread into other divisions as well.   Welcome to the team, VirusKing!   Thank you.

    6. November 2018

      GFL Newsletter November 2018   CS:GO DIVISION    This month, it seems that we’ve got a lot to look forward to. After speaking with Roy, it seems that there will be three CS:GO servers up to begin with. The three servers coming back to GFL are: Surf Timer, Jailbreak, and 1v1 Arena. Roy and iTaco will be managing the Surf Timer server, but a manager for Jailbreak or Arena is yet to be announced, but is currently being considered and presumably announced as the servers develop.   RUST REBOOT One of our community’s forgotten game servers, Rust, has received a new breath of life in the form of a new manager with a familiar name to our older members: VirusKing. Virus is one of three people who run a successful large Rust server as a hobby, and has agreed to come back to GFL to assist our server reach new heights! With his ideas and management, we can be sure to put Rust back on the GFL map, and in our hearts once again.   PVKII: This month has seen many promotions for many of the divisions here at GFL. One of which is TheJitFace, as the newest Server Manager for Pirates, Vikings & Knights II. With a new manager and a possible switch from our US NFO server to our EU/UK servers, the simple server may once again become one of the more popular servers in the sourcemod game. We’ll see, Jit!   FORUMS: Also affected this month is our home, the forums. With Steam integration updating, linking accounts has never been smoother. However, along with the update we lost the ability to integrate discord accounts at this time. As part of the updating, the community Shoutbox also got a tune up, updating to fix emote bugs. Another large change was the banner being replaced with an official GFL image, and profile cover photo’s opacity getting increased to allow visibility.   READER’S SECTION: Have any questions, cool bits of information, trivia, or requests for next month’s newsletter? Contact the Newsletter team! We would love to incorporate interaction between the reader and the content. Those willing to participate should contact WigglesWorth (Forums: WigglesWorth, Discord: WigglesWorth#9434) before the 24th of the month so we may work on adding it to the Newsletter!     Disclaimer: This format is temporary, as newsletter is slowly being redone into a new design. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
