        Hi everyone,   We're happy to introduce the 2023 GFL Surf Tournament! Just like last year, the tournament will feature 16 of GFL's best players in a series of best-of-3 1v1 battles for their share in the final prize pool. The 16 player roster will consist of 12 invited players, with the remaining 4 slots being players that progress through the qualifier stage.   This time, the qualifier stage will be a separate Group Stage tournament prior to the main events! The Group Stages will cap at a maximum of 16 participants, 4 in each group, with potential participants expressing interest and being selected. Want to have the chance to prove yourself in CS Surf's biggest tournament?

    4. Update to Council + New Council Member!

      Hi everyone!   In the previous public Council meeting, an idea was introduced to downsize Council by 2 members. After some internal discussion, we've decided to remove the Community Representative positions and instead lighten the restrictions on the Staff Council Member (SCM) seats to include anyone that's a staff member in full capacity. We decided this was something we could pursue since GFL has been in quite a good state in terms of stability for a while now, which means we no longer need as many people overseeing GFL from council.   That said, thanks to everyone that expressed interest in SCM! I'm happy to announce that @Dini and @Scott have been selected to take up the two SCM seats in Council for this term. Please join us in congratulating them! 😄   With that, @Bendy, @Nick, and @Baconator are no longer a part of council.

    5. Hopefully the last one for a bit (Maintenance)

      Hello all,   We're going to be moving the last of the services not on our new web machine this Friday from 8:00 AM - 12:00 CT. The game servers themselves will not be going down, but the forums, Pterodactyl, GFLBans, and a few other auxiliary services (such as the FastDL index) will be down during this time.   The machine that these services used to reside on will be repurposed to host test servers and developer VPSes, allowing us to cancel both of the machines we used to use for these things, saving us some money. The test server move will occur on Saturday at noon and will take until around 4 PM. Players shouldn't actually notice this because it will only impact the test servers. The developer VPSes will be moved at a later time that is TBD.

    6. Surprise Christmas Eve Maintainence!

      Hello all,   The following GFL services will be going offline on December 24 at 23:00 CST for a maintenance as we move more services to our new web machine. Kibana / Elasticsearch logs FastDL Website GFLBans Grafana Server Loading screens Pterodactyl (both public and private servers) Sourcebans GFLClan.com Website   I will also be deploying fixes to Gitlab during this time.   The new machine we've purchased is pretty decent and should be sufficient to run what we once needed two whole machines to run, however, we're committed to the machine for another year or so, so we're going to move the developer VPSes to the old primary web machine. This should hopefully offer a nice performance boost to the developer VPSes, which have suffered from using a spinning HDD for awhile now instead of an NVME drive.

    8. GFL Newsletter - March/April 2022

      This is the GFL Newsletter for March and April 2022. We have some new members this time, so please welcome them onto the team, and please enjoy the variations in style. Though they will have future contributions here, be sure to congratulate everyone else who got promoted these last two months by checking the promotion list at the bottom of the newsletter!   For each newsletter, we have one "Easter Egg" hidden somewhere. If you find it on here or on a future newsletter, please be sure to message @Dragoon (Dragoon#5140) or @Salad (Salad#6564) to claim a free prize! This section will be updated when someone discovers the secret For this newsletter, @motorsteak was the one to find the Easter Egg and has received a free month of VIP as the prize! - @Big Man Fatty   Purge’s grand reopening has garnered a bit of attention. For those unaware of what purge is, it is a modified version of DarkRP wherein every 45 minutes there is a 12 minute period where all crime is legal. It used to be a popular server back when it used to exist but had to shut down, now that it is reopened people are playing and enjoying it again. Wayne and Salad are co-managing and they are managing it very well! - @AMP Early April, meanwhile, saw the appointment of a new Team Leader, @Business Kirby, for the role of Event Coordinator! They have been serving underneath @Copium Queen for slightly over a month now. Let’s give them one final congratulations!   - @BlazingArson At the beginning of April, we decided to shut down the Rust division for the second time. The second chance was promising, but due to the Division Leader, @Baconator, and both Server Managers resigning, it has once again been shut down. Maybe sometime in the future, it may come back once more; for now, we say a solemn goodbye to Rust and its players.
