    Update on Roy + CS:GO Technical Administrator Promotion + Battle of the Communities


    Shuruia

    Some of you may have noticed that @Roy has been absent for the past couple of days. The reason for this is that his PC has fallen under the dreadfully harrowing curse of hardware failure. I can spare no details on when Roy shall return, thus leaving this message as merely a disclosure of Roy's present situation. 

     

    Of course, the absence of Roy means that the burden of writing announcement posts for noteworthy events must fall to someone equally as charming and charismatic. I'm not one to shirk the onus of destiny, so without further delay...

     

    CS:GO Technical Administrator:

    @Dano will remain as the sole CS:GO division leader for the foreseeable future. However, this does not mean that he is doomed to handle the technical affairs of the division by himself. As of today, @Ariistuujj has been designated as our latest technical administrator. The rank itself was originally introduced in a broader sense, although Arii's focus will be on CS:GO. Please keep in mind that the duties of a technical administrator are (as the name implies) that of the technical aspects of division management; do not bother Arii with communal issues that should rather be addressed to a division leader.

     

    Battle of the Communities:

    A representative of http://www.edge-gamers.com/ contacted us on the 4th of August in an effort to introduce GFL into a pool of communities for participation in an event they call "Battle of the Communities". If the name isn't enough indication, this is a tournament that promotes friendly competition between various communities. More specifically, the chosen participants will play matches that are held within a 5v5 CS:GO setting. The tournament is typically held at the end of October or the beginning of November. As we have accepted the invitation, we shall promptly need to form a team with which to compete. Please contact @Dano if you are interested in the prospect.

    Will GFL be okay without @Roy? Will @Ariistuujj be a good technical administrator? And will do good with this upcoming Battle of the Communities!? Find out on the next episode of GFL Z! (You know what voice to read it in)

    Time to get that new $17k computer.

     

     

    Anyway, the "battle of the communities" thing got me worried there for a second. I thought another community was trying to steal our players and what not. This sounds a lot better than I expected and I'm happy that we're participating.

    Then that means that he got to shut down the servers because they need funding to run servers.

     

    And that GFL's end

    :lenny:

    Don't we already have a pretty good CS:GO team?

    That is a very valid point. Edge-Gamers is trying to keep it to active players of the community and not their designated eSports teams, they also don't want the best players in the world to attend, thus prohibiting semi- and full pros. Which means we will - like all of the other communities - create our roster with active members.

    Congrats @Ariistuujj! You always were a good person to go to for something that is more on the technical side. Now it is just official.

     

    Sad to hear about @Roy's PC. Hopes he will get it fixed as soon as he can.

     

    Battle of communities sounds pretty fun and I am sure we can do something special with it.

    For anyone wondering, Roy's PC should be fixed on Saturday.  He was in the process of transferring files from his server to his computer and his SSD broke.  Roy's new SSD card should be arriving at his house on Saturday.

    Roy has never taken any money from GFL to use on himself or others.

    It's not about just playing our CS:GO team.  We want people that have been in GFL longer who want to participate.   This isn't just about winning, but to have fun in the Battle of the Communities.

    People take these jokes very seriously.  Someone in the past did do something wrong and it has kept people on the edge.  This is like going on an airplane and yelling out as a joke that you have a bomb - Don't do it.

    I'm actually interested in seeing a 17k build that isn't just throwing money at something.

     

    Also, hope Roy had everything important saved somewhere safe, even a backup on a flash drive at least so he doesn't have to start from nothing.
