March/April/May 2020 Newsletter
Two New Division Leaders, Pyros and Skittlez - Trigger
---> We’ve been looking for new Division Leaders for Garry’s Mod and Rust. Thankfully, we have found just the right people! Our new Division Leader for Garry’s Mod will be Pyros, who has shown great leadership and communication skills. He will help direct our Garry’s Mod Division with Zebra. A dedicated leader with excellent management skills, Skittlez, will lead our Rust division to a greater future!
New "Don't Starve Together" Server in the works - Trigger
---> Here at GFL we tend to stick with the bigger games (CS:GO, Rust, Garry's Mod, etc.). However we've had an idea to start working with smaller games. Which brings us to Don't Starve Together! Xy, one of the technical administrators, started working on a GFL Don't Starve Together Server. It will be a mix of vanilla and modded, which to some may be good or bad.
10,000 Discord Users - Trigger
---> Yes, you read that right! We've reached over 10,000 Discord users among all of our Discord servers. That includes everything from GFL Official to GFL Garry's Mod! Of course, these numbers won't stay like this forever, as we are sure to gain even more members in the future.
New CS:GO Intermediate Surf Timer Server - Trigger
---> A new CS:GO Surf server with the difficulty "intermediate" has been added to our list of Surf servers. At the moment, we have Beginner Surf, Novice Surf, Intermediate Surf, and Expert Surf. Each server will have its own rotation of maps related to the difficulty of the server.
New CS:GO VIP/Top100 Surf Timer Server - Trigger
---> Our old and deformed Beta test server transformed into the new and reformed VIP/Top100 Surf Timer server! This server will allow you to play each individual tier level. Want to play on those pesky Tier 4 maps? We have over 600 playable maps with various difficulties. We plan to add more
AshAkiri - New Technical Administrator - Saizy
---> GFL has a brand new Technical Administrator that will mainly focus on the CS:GO Branch. After proving himself to the higher ups with his creative thinking, he was recently promoted to be the newest addition to the team. We are already seeing what he can do, what he has done for CS:GO so far. Expect many things from him in the near-future!
Rise and Fall of GFL Zombie Survival - Trigger and Saizy
---> We've revived a long lost zombie survival server. It took time, but eventually it grew into a wonderful place to play. Instead of 24/7 mall, we decided to go with rotational maps. The server had ZE, OBJ, and ZS maps. Overtime however, the server suffered many problems. Staff were inactive due to COVID-19, toxicity grew, and updates weren't happening. The server also had minor technical problems. With that said, the GMOD Zombie Survival server is coming to an end. It was given a try and ultimately failed because of said reasons. Hopefully people have made some memories there and made new friends before the unfortunate closure.
Garry's Mod Half-Life Co-Op Server - Saizy
---> GFL has launched another server, Half-life Co-op! Within GMod, you'll be able to play with other players through the entire Half-Life Campaign! It will also be possible to play with add-ons, to make the original Half-Life experience a little bit better. If you ever wanted to play a Half-Life game with a friend, now is your chance!
GFL Game Events - Saizy
---> Pokémon Showdown Event!
- This event will be run using the browser game Pokémon Showdown! Using Generation 7 Pokemon, 8 players with randomly generated teams will compete one on one to the top of the bracket to become the Pokémon champion. Lemillion is hosting it, and is asking everyone to come & join! A cool "Pokemon Champion" GFL badge is waiting for you with your name on it!
---> Overwatch 6v6 Event!
- A Overwatch 6v6 event is happening soon! This event is targeted for European players, you can also join if you live in America, as long as you have good internet! Each team will compete with each other in 6v6 matches! Even if you just join, you get an Event Participation badge. However, if you win the matches you also get the "EU Event Winner" badge!
---> Mystery Culprit Event!
- A new event coming to the GFL Forums is called Mystery Culprit! There will be 30 suspects, 9 of which are the real culprits. The culprits are divided into sets of 3. The other 21 suspects have to guess correctly which one among the 30 are the culprits of this game. For just participating, you get a "Event Participant" badge. If you win, you get the special "Mystery Culprit" badge as well!
