    (๐™ฐ๐šž๐š๐šž๐šœ๐š)- Jailbreak, a game mode consisting of Guards (Counter-Terrorists) and Prisoners (Terrorists) where prisoners have the goal of escaping the guards, has been announced as fully released on CS:GO after having a very successful beta testing phase! The Jailbreak server is a collaboration between two communities Games For Life (GFL) and Hellsgamers (HG). The game mode was officially released to the public on August 24th and has been in the making since January 2020! For more information, feel free to visit the website created specifically for the GFL x HG collaboration at https://gfl-hg.co/ย .

    (๐™ฐ๐šž๐š๐šž๐šœ๐š)-ย While September was still peering its way through the depths of GFL, there happened to be another exciting event that took place! On August 28th, Nick posted an announcement that contained statements and other additional information regarding the two potential council spots as a Community Representative. The spots were opened for anyone to apply that were a member+ of GFLย . Though there were many application submissions, only a few contestants made it to the final round. The final round was announced in October, and it consisted of all the campaigns that were eligible to be in the competition. Soon enough, it was announced that the results of the election would be released on October 11th, but soon was moved to October 13th due to one of the contestants resigning that had enough votes to swing the election. When October soon flew by,ย we finished our first Community Representative (CR) Election. In the election, there wereย 6 potential candidates, with only 2 of them able to become a CR. We had 239 voters, and because everybody could vote twice, we ended up receiving a total of 377 votes! So, to each and every voter reading this newsletter, thank you! With a total of 104 votes, Liloz01 is the first of our Community Representatives! Additionally, with a total of 94 votes, Salad is our second Community Representative! To each participant, whether you were a candidate or a voter, we all thank you for your participation. We will post the voting results below.ย ย ย ย ย

    (๐™ฐ๐šž๐š๐šž๐šœ๐š)- As the GFL Community constantly evolves, so too must the landscape of its servers. A while back, we launched two new TTT Servers on Garryโ€™s Mod. The first one, TTT Vanilla, is a simple way of playing TTT without any modifications to the gameโ€™s mechanics. The other, TTT Anarchy, is much more experimental. This server has a relaxed ruleset, along with a role system that allows players to play other roles besides the three main roles of Traitor, Innocent, and Detective. No matter which server suits your playstyle more, we hope you enjoy our TTT expansion!ย ย

    (๐š‚๐šŽ๐š™๐š๐šŽ๐š–๐š‹๐šŽ๐š›)-ย Have you heard about the newest Division Leader promotion?! Hamtaro will be the one taking TF2 matters into his own hands. He is popularly distinguished by his strong characteristics and motives for the TF2 division. He works tremendously well with a team and is also designated for being very outgoing! His intentions for his new position happen to be nothing but beneficial to the TF2 community. He has a great open mind regarding player suggestions and changes for the discord or in-game features. He states that he plans on getting rid of all the deleterious and unfair advantages from the community to the best of his ability. Hamtaro also intends to give all the TF2 servers more assistance to the player base by equalizing an executive staff committee for every one of the servers. Over time, the TF2 servers will grow more into success with an enjoyable and friendly community due to Hamtaroโ€™s proficient guidance!

    (๐™พ๐šŒ๐š๐š˜๐š‹๐šŽ๐š›)- This October, new things have been brewing up in the GMod Division! GFL has decided to launch its very own DarkRP server once again. On the server, you can find 40+ jobs, 30+ weapons, 10 vehicles, and more to come. The DarkRP server has been in the works by our amazing developers for many months, and they canโ€™t wait for you to check it out! You can join the server by pasting this (connect 92.119.148.7:27015) into your console. Make sure to check the MOTD before you play and remember to have fun!ย ย

    (๐™พ๐šŒ๐š๐š˜๐š‹๐šŽ๐š›)-ย After the success of the first KZ Climb server that is currently managed by Infra, the CS:GO Division has decided to open up another one! The server, or more the genre itself, involves parkour, difficult jumps and hard obstacles. The ultimate goal is to traverse the map as fast as possible before anyone else finishes. Some maps are harder than others, but all maps are considered a rough challenge. This new KZ server aims to host higher difficulty maps along with optimized settings for higher-ranked players. Connect to KZ Climb #2 here: 92.119.148.85:27015ย .

    (๐™พ๐šŒ๐š๐š˜๐š‹๐šŽ๐š›)-ย Towards the end of theย Spookyย Monthโ€ฆย GFLย had to experience a very sorrowful resignation from the Rust Division.ย Skittlezย was hurt just as much as we were when he uttered the news. After about four prominent and faithful years that he devoted intoย GFL, there soon came a time where life influenced him to wave farewell. The big man is getting married! After all the lovely cheers and congratulations, we were all drawn to realize how much we are going to miss him and his amazing work ethic. He states that heโ€™s very thankful for everything that we all have done and he couldnโ€™t have worked with a better community.ย As Skittlez was stepping down, he clearly stated that Vence would be the one stepping up into his position. Heโ€™s been โ€œsomewhat training him over the past few weeks to do so.โ€ Venceย struck him as the type of individual that has great leadership skills, and the type of dedication that the community needs. He also believes that he has the greatest potential to uphold the Division on all the skillfulย levels!ย

    (๐™พ๐šŒ๐š๐š˜๐š‹๐šŽ๐š›)-ย Just when you thought GFL couldnโ€™t get any bigger, we are announcing our plans for a new SQUAD server and new European servers in CS:GO and GMOD, and possibly more in the future!ย In the upcoming weeks, GFL will be expanding its already founded servers to Europe. The game modes will consist of CS:GO Surf Timer, CS:GO Bunny Hop, GMODย Prop Hunt, GMODย Murder, and a few others, along with a new Squad server launching. Squad is a tactical first-person shooter video game, "set in the current modern-day environment". Since the Squad server is very new, we will need to form an admin team. If you feel you are up for the challenge, you can apply here!
