  1. Thanks to @willywilson for covering me with making the votes this week since I was unable to. Event Overview: Hello everyone! For this week, courtesy of Prizmo, we get to play some ol' tryhard (and also offliner) maps!. Due to two nominations being tied for the top spot by the time I made this thread ("Are We There Yet?" vs "GFL Mapper Combo #2") I put both nominations into a randomizer, and "Are We There Yet" was the one that was selected from that, so that's why this nomination was picked. For this event we'll be playing: ze_predator_ultimate_v1_3 -- Download by clicking here! ze_mist_v1_3 -- Download by clicking here! ze_deadcore_s6 -- Download by clicking here! Time for the event: Saturday August 17th @ 10pm GMT-0 To check at which time the event is for you, check this website to give you an idea. Notice: Events are schedules in our Steam group, however, we also always announce over at our Discord server when the event begins. Special Kickers: None for this event VIP Rewards: Due to the nature of this event, two maps need to be won to get one week of V.I.P.! Rules: This event will be tryhard, so micspam is not encouraged (and you'll be muted for it) Regular server rules will apply for this event as usual Sitting in spec unless you're a spectating admin is not allowed. Each map will be played for a maximum of 120 minutes. For Deadcore Stage D will be allowed to be won three times, after this we will enable Insane mode but also enable rtv, so that if players wish to keep trying Redcore even after D has been won they can do so. Leaders: Any willing one, although I'll try to be there. See you this weekend, and good luck!
  2. If you haven't checked out this thread then I'd recommend you do.
  3. Conditions to nominate maps + How to do it: Nominate a map (or a combo) by leaving a reply in this thread with the maps that you'd like to see for the next event, have some common sense while nominating, don't go and nominate stupid senseless long and hard combos. Vote for which nomination you'd like to see by giving a like to the post (or posts) with the nomination that you like. The 5 most upvoted nominations will make it to the Map and time votes. You cannot upvote your own nomination! Conditions to nominate stuff: Map combos can be nominated so long as they aren't nonsensical ridiculous combos Special kickers (twists in gameplay) can be requested for your event nomination (so long as they make sense too) Make sure to write the *full map name* when nominating (example, write "ze_lotr_isengard_v2_3" instead of just "Isengard") "Autism as part of the events" won't be allowed (micspam and stuff), chill / simple maps for chill events however, are. "X Weapon only unless bossfight" type of events is not longer allowed, "X Weapon only" type of events is allowed. Nominations will be closed on: Wednesday August 14th @ 12:00am GMT-5 Maps you can't nominate currently: ze_30_Seconds__b21 ze_icecap_escape_v3 ze_rooftop_runaway2_v5 ze_games_v2_2a ze_random_v9 ze_sdp_30_seconds_remake_v1_3 ze_portal_story_v3_2 ze_UT2004_Convoy_v2_2_1 Maps with extended nomination cooldown: ze_ffxii_ridorana_cataract (Any version) -- 3 weeks
  4. At the time we really didn't want to push for the "spam event announcements every day" idea since that could potentially lead to more people just ignoring them in general. Mini events don't seem to be that uncommon among other communities around anyway so at this point I guess it's safe to push for this idea, after all there's not much more that can be lost. (Two pings a week shouldn't really bug anyone to be honest.)
  5. Notice: Because of this thread being posted I decided to not make the nomination thread this week and instead went straight ahead and took an event from our Nomination Megathread, the whole purpose of this was so the thread that was first linked could get a bit more attention. If you haven't checked it out I seriously recommend that you do before looking into this thread. Event Overview: Hello everyone! For this week we're aturning up the tryhard up a couple notches compared to last event, but not enough to make us sweat for the entire day. For this event we'll be playing: ze_sdp_30_seconds_remake_v1_3 -- Download by clicking here! ze_portal_story_v3_2 -- Download by clicking here! ze_UT2004_Convoy_v2_2_1 -- Download by clicking here! Time for the event: Saturday August 10th @ 10pm GMT-0 To check at which time the event is for you, check this website to give you an idea. Notice: Events are schedules in our Steam group, however, we also always announce over at our Discord server when the event begins. Special Kickers: pF settings for all three maps 900 ammo for Portal Story and SDP 2000 ammo for Convoy VIP Rewards: Due to the nature of this event, two maps need to be won to get one week of V.I.P.! Rules: This event will be a bit tryhard, so micspam is not encouraged (and you'll be muted for it) Regular server rules will apply for this event as usual Sitting in spec unless you're a spectating admin is not allowed. Each map will be played for a maximum of 120 minutes. Leaders: None needed for this, at least it seems. See you this weekend, and good luck!
  6. Hello everyone. I'm making this post here to keep you guys updated on what has been going on behind the scenes with the Admin team, just recently we held a brief admin meeting and while these things were already posted over at our Discord server, I want to make it more general by expanding these ideas in this post here. You are more than free to add to your ideas or yes/no at them, without further ado: The General Stuff: Rexy and Luigi have stepped down from regular admin position, and Backy has stepped down from Server Manager and has resigned from admin responsibilities in general Lev has been promoted to Head Admin, this is something we should have done a long while ago since he has always been committed to help the server whenever he's able to (he will now be helping us out with handing VIP rewards) Soft Serve will be handling internal server stuff and he'll keep doing his mapping business (he's Server Manager now basically, but he won't be handling the responsibilities that Backy would have handled with me) Event Manager role removed, this so that every admin can freely execute event commands if the actual event managers cannot attend the event As for myself, I will keep doing event stuff and talking to others if needed but still staying as Server Manager for the time being. Possibility for "mini-events" in the middle of the week, possibly Wednesdays The Server Stuff: Open spots for anyone who wants to try Admin, Dev Admin and/or Head Admin (since most staff is burnt out at this point and if the interest for applying is serious and not a meme) This is one I'd like people to give their opinion on! Vote at the start of most maps to enable "Easy settings" (this reduces nade knockback, caps bhop speed, increases general knockback) As we have it planned (and as has been discussed a bit on our Discord server, the idea of this plugin is to be fully opt in at the start of a map, with an opt-out function as well in case players want to turn it off eventually AND the chance that an admin can bring up the vote if they think it's necessary) Reduce all Extreme maps maximum player limit to 20, remove this limit from Easy to Hard maps Reconsider which maps go in the Extreme maplist category to fit the above idea (this should mean mostly no restrictions if anyone wants to play X map) When we say "Extreme maps" we mean those in this list, which contains every map on our ZE server. Knockback has been slightly increased to appeal to people trying to play maps with low population. Work with the shotgun knockback to try and make it a more feasible weapon (but still keeping it away from knife-like knockback) To TL;DR this post: The admins that have stepped down from their "admin duty" have chosen to do so due to their very own life responsibilities, it's pretty apparent nowadays but the reason we're opening admin spots is because parallel to that, most of our current admin staff (Admins, Dev Admins and Head Admins) is burnt out. As much as it hurts to say it that's unfortunately the truth, and we're looking for people who'd be willing to help us out and "unload some weight" from some of the staff of our team. The idea for the mini events came to me by someone in the server. Every Wednesday/Thursday we choose one hard map and we play it late during the evening, playing this mini-event wouldn't offer VIP as rewards but choosing which map to be played during the mini-event could be discussed over at our Discord server or perhaps in the server, just to help get a little kick going on. General server settings have been nerfed down a bit, our settings are some of the (if not, the) hardest out there compared to other Source ZE servers, so we will be nerfing down some of them to help with the low population. Since we've noticed our original Steam group still has a lot more people than our current one we will be announcing event stuff on both Steam groups for the people who (most likely) haven't noticed the new group and haven't joined it either. Despite the above mentioned of most admin staff feeling burnt out, we (all admin team) would still like to add that we're trying whatever's within our reach to keep the server going whenever possible, which is why both the meeting and these ideas have surfaced up from our side. These here are our ideas to help expand the server's life at least a little bit. This isn't the first time GFL's Source ZE has died, in the past the community also saw a massive population drop and it managed to come back up and running up until when we started having a drop ourselves. Saying the game is losing numbers is fair, but saying ZE in Source is dead isn't since, although rarely, we're still getting new players. If there are any points / ideas you wish to discuss feel free to add them to this thread and we'll respond to them. (Also no nominaton thread this week since I'd like this thread to get a little bit more attention beforehand, this week we'll take a nomination from our Nomination Megathread, so if you wanted to nominate something this week you can do so there and I'll add it to the proper votes)
  7. (p.d.) I actually kind of am not sure if this is why GFL is better but that's the name that was given to this event so. Event Overview: Hello everyone! For this week we're all kicking our feet up in the air and chill a bit in the ZE server! This event comes courtesy of exemplary ex-admin that doesn't troll anywhere AND hasn't been muted, ebanned and gagged since his stepping down, The Q-Man!

Time for the event: Saturday August 3rd @ 10pm GMT-0 To check at which time the event is for you, check this website to give you an idea. Notice: Events are schedules in our Steam group, however, we also always announce over at our Discord server when the event begins. Special Kickers: Each map has to be beaten twice First win will be played normally, Second win will be played with infinite nades (or at least enough to last you a round) Torchlight enabled on all maps VIP Rewards: Due to the nature of this event, no V.I.P. will be rewarded. Rules: This event is as chill as they come, so tryharding won't be enforced (however, excessive micspamming should be avoided) Regular server rules will apply for this event as usual Sitting in spec unless you're a spectating admin is not allowed. Each map will be played for a maximum of 60 minutes. Leaders: None needed for this, at least it seems. See you this weekend, and good luck!
