  1. Leaked footage of me playing the Sea of Thieves beta:


  2. Where are you from?

    Somewhere in Britannia.
  3. Sea Of Thieves

    Sea of Thieves is great, but you need to play it with friends for it to be worth it. I especially love manning the helm of the ship.
  4. No More

    I've been in this community for just under seven years. Within those years, I've been a TF2 division leader, Council member and director. I don't think I can stand that anymore. Everything in GFL's upper echelons is so regimented and authoritarian nowadays, to the point where I feel as though GFL is losing its soul and direction. This used to be a community of gamers on the Internet, but now it feels like a company of unpaid interns. It's just too depressing to associate with any further, to be honest. It didn't used to be this way. This isn't me leaving GFL as a whole; I highly doubt I'll ever fully leave GFL. As a matter of fact, I intend to retain some projects that I was previously helping with, such as the About GFL project. I will also still be available to proofread anything that you fellows wish to give me, as well as helping with some admin shifts on Purge. This is me taking a step back from the tedious bureaucracy that goes on within GFL's upper echelons. I'm out of my depth at this point. Obligatory mentions: @Dano My best friend and greatest creation in all of my time in GFL. @Alejandro My first good friend in GFL. @Amelie Helped me to come out of my shell and be less reserved. @Darkling I still have nightmares about you breaking into my home to do lewd things to me. @RickGrimesTM Honestly didn't like you at first, but I came to greatly respect you. @Nerd Helped me through my college depression. I'll never forget you. @Zebra Suave horse. @Deltacommander Smelly boy. @Rose Glad you found your way, sister. @Crusty Best fisherman in all of Texas. @Misaki Breath of magic. I love you.
  5. No More

    You'll get mine!
  6. Are traps gay?

    Hm, so you say. Never seen someone refer to boys as "chicks" before, so it seemed strange to me. Carry on, then.
  7. Are traps gay?

    That's a shemale. Traps are—in a broad sense of the term—effeminate boys who dress as girls.
  8. Boosting Member Traffic

    A lot of people just want to visit the forums in order to quickly check an MOTD, admin list or event. It's one thing to have more people sign up, but it's another thing entirely to drive people away from our forums.
  9. Applications for the position of Discord moderator are now open again. This was decided due to our Discord server reaching a milestone of 1000 (not including bots) users. This opportunity will remain until the Discord team are comfortable with the new amount of moderators, upon which this post will disappear. Applications are now closed until we feel that we are in need of more Discord moderators.
  10. Capitalize on Game Server Traffic

    I'm going to be working on giving MOTDs a more uniform framework. I'll definitely consider this idea along the way.
  11. GFL Alignment Chart

    Everyone is calling me evil...
  12. how do you be a good Moira

    I specialise in tanks. This one's for @Dano. One thing I can say is that you should strive to charge your ult with Moira before anyone else, which is made possible by the fact that her healing output in team fights is better than any other healer. If the team fight is still happening with no clear winner, you absolutely must use your ult as soon as you get it to try and tip the fight in your team's favour. Moira charges her ult quickly enough that you can afford to fire it off in situations where other heroes might consider holding on to their ults.
  13. Relationships, possibly NSFW

    Your experience with relationships (Good or Bad): Good Relationship Status Currently: In a relationship How many relationships have you had?: 2 (now 3) Which one was your favorite?: 2 Did you ever experience the friendzone before you started?: No Partners Gender?: Female Which base is the highest you've ever hit? (1,2,3,4): 1 Have you ever had a Long Distance Relationship?: Yes What is your favorite thing to do with your partner?: Relax and discuss philosophy, as cliché as that sounds What's the best thing you've done with your partner?: See above What's the worst thing you've done with your partner?: I've... never really thought about that, to be honest Is there any moment in your love life you wish you could do again/different?: Not at all Why would you do it over again or differently?: N/A Would you put your partner above friends, even if friends are right?: No If circumstance or fate pulled a giggle or something, would you go back to your ex?: No—it's personal policy to never go back to exes, even if that possibility is open Would you date someone to get back at your ex?: No Is it wrong to talk to your ex and Just be friends even if you're taken?: No Would you care if your partner talked to their ex like a friend would?: No, and those that do are petty Do you consider yourself jealous?: No Do you consider yourself obsessive?: Not with people What was your first date like?: I can't remember Rate your first kiss 1/10: 6 or so, but it was with a boy I wasn't in a relationship with Would you do anything for said partner (even it its illegal)?: Probably not, although it would depend Would you ever introduce your partner to GFL (as in the community and servers, not the people, kinda): Purely depends on whether or not they are interested in the games we host servers for
  14. Overwatch—which is currently in the middle of its Lunar New Year event—will start its free weekend in approximately thirty minutes.


    1. StickDuck


      @Shuruia will you be my valentine 

    2. Shuruia


      Be careful what you wish for.

    3. Darkling


      Polyamory anyone?

  15. Remove adverting

    This is good. Some of our more cautious players make sure to check their cameras whenever they see someone call raid in chat, which is—more or less—metagaming. Raiders already have so many overwhelming disadvantages as it is, so this is just another small way to make it more fair.
  16. FBI Car

    It'd be nice if the FBI got their own car, but let's not give them God's own nuclear-powered chariot. They're strong enough as it is.
  17. Website Updates

    11/02/18 Created a forum section for our new CS:S 24/7 Dust2 server. The manager for this server will be @Decoy. For more information, please refer to this thread: https://gflclan.com/forums/topic/25048-new-247-dust2-server/

    What a shame.
  19. New and Popular Trending Post (AMA)

    Yeah, I kept seeing FireEagle5 on your team. That's some pretty bad luck; he's notorious in Plat for throwing games.
  20. Discord Active Member Role

    Spam would be a problem, yes. The urge would always be there for some types of people. I'm going to close this suggestion for now, although we will keep @Ben Roy's input in mind since some of our auxiliary Discord servers had a system like that.
  21. Admin Of The Month

    A safe no. We did something like this back in 2012 or so when the community was still young, but we wouldn't want to use this again for reasons already stated above.
  22. I shall revive this section in celebration of this very special day. PATCH HIGHLIGHTS World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Pre-purchase Goodies When you pre-purchase a Digital Deluxe version of World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth you’ll receive several Warcraft-themed goodies in Overwatch. Show your faction pride on the battlefields of tomorrow with emotes for Tracer; Horde- and Alliance-themed voice lines for Torbjörn; Anduin, Jaina, Sylvanas, and Saurfang sprays; and Kul Tiras and Zandalar player icons. HERO UPDATES Junkrat Concussion Mine Now will deal less damage to targets farther away from the explosion’s center Developer Comments: Junkrat has been enjoying the flexibility his double-charge Concussion Mine provides, but it has become a bit too easy to throw out huge bursts of damage in a large area. With this change he can still dish out similar damage but he must now be more accurate with his tosses. Mercy Valkyrie No longer makes Resurrect instant No longer grants a bonus Resurrect charge The speed bonus Guardian Angel receives when activating Valkyrie has been decreased by 50% Duration reduced from 20 seconds to 15 seconds Developer Comments: Mercy’s recent Resurrect changes have helped in allowing enemies to have more counter play in dealing with her, but she was able to use Resurrect through Valkyrie enough to largely mitigate the impact of the previous changes. Additionally, we’re toning back the amount of mobility Valkyrie provides through Guardian Angel and reducing its duration to overall reduce the power of this ability. BUG FIXES Heroes Fixed a bug that prevented D.Va’s face and hair textures from loading when her Black Cat skin was equipped DIE MOTH DIE
  23. This was no mistake. This was an attempt to infect my thread with a particularly aggressive form of disease that has been plaguing these forums. It's working.
