    3. Humble Bundle

      Good morning, afternoon, and evening, GFL! Today, I’m pleased to announce our new affiliation with Humble Bundle!     Humble Bundle is an online shopping service for video games, similar to that of Steam. However, it differs from other digital storefronts in that it often allows users to buy bundles containing several games for a great price (thus the name Humble Bundle). Humble Bundle has been around since 2010 and has provided gamers with a variety of options to choose from. Humble Bundle often provides low pricing for games, and the money is split between charitable causes and the game developers. GFL and Humble Bundle have now become affiliate partners, and we expect to benefit greatly from this. With such a large and generous community, we could greatly increase sales for Humble Bundle, while also providing our community with a great outlet to some of the best games out there in addition to generating funding for the GFL servers. Check out the Humble Bundle site, www.humblebundle.com, and get yourself a bundle of games for great prices!   To start the community off with some great deals, here are the current listings we have, including this month’s Humble Monthly and another additional bundle: February Humble Monthly Link: https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly?partner=gflclan&charity=159423 FINE PRESENTS Bundle:https://www.humblebundle.com/games/double-fine-presents?partner=gflclan&charity=159423 Please note that prices on bundles are adjustable and the funds are able to be allocated to the developers, charities, or GFL as a whole. Because of our affiliation, whenever a GFL member purchases Humble Monthly for the first time ever using our affiliate link, GFL will receive $10 back. We’ve also received the benefit of a standard 15% cashback on any bundle, which can be changed by allocating the funds differently as mentioned earlier. Lastly, we'll also make 5% off of any games you buy in the store within 24 hours of clicking our links if it says "Thank you for supporting GFL" at the top and at checkout (Humble partner). It may seem a little confusing, but you can’t say no to all these great deals!   Also, there is currently a Humble Bundle winter sale going on now. If you were unsure of buying a game before, you might be able to find it discounted now while also giving back to the GFL community! A lot of great deals can still be taken during this time period while giving back to the community. The winter sale will end at January 24th, 10AM PST / 1PM EST. The partnership with Humble Bundle was created in order for both partners to benefit greatly. By partnering with Humble Bundle, we’ve not only allow our large community to flock to their site with a demand for games to buy, but we’ve also provided the community with a great opportunity to score some great deals while also helping the community meet its monthly server expenses. Hopefully, you’ll all enjoy these generous sales!

    4. 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!

    5. 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   - 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.

    7. 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.
