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.
