  1. [Discord] Topic of the week

    If you're going to do this every week, I would limit it to one day of the week. I like the idea, otherwise.
  2. Overwatch League

    The first match of every day thus far has ended in a C9...
  3. Senior-Admin Role for the Public Discord.

    A fair idea, but I doubt we'll implement it. We have no need to make the rank legend in Discord more complicated than its current iteration.

    Accepted.
  5. Mercy just got the mega nerf dick.

    Our greatest enemy has been defeated.
  6. The New Media Team @Roy has always envisioned GFL growing to be as large as it can be. In accordance with this, we have been searching for ways to expand GFL through various mediums. After mulling over a base idea that was originally proposed by @Joshy, we have decided to reform the Creative Team into the Media Team. This team bears many similarities with the old Media Team in that it is split between two subsets. One of these is the already existing GFX Team, which will largely remain the same in its structure. The second subset is the Marketing Team, which will be responsible for the act of "marketing" (hence the name) GFL through outside channels. This differs from the previous Media Team in that they—the members—are not solely bound by the social media platforms that GFL has already established. The new focus is to be proactive, rather than reactive. Despite only being established in their own right for a short duration, the event coordinators will also be absorbed into this new subset. As the teams currently stand, they are led by @Bae (GFX) and @Duc2000 (Marketing). You may contact them with your interests and concerns. @Darkling will also remain as the primary Council correspondent for this team. CS:GO & Division Leaders We realise that some of you have expressed concern for the lack of division leaders for our CS:GO division. This is doubtlessly a valid concern, although you can rest assured that two potential new division leaders are coming through the pipeline. These two are already being put through their paces by showcasing and discussing their plans with the directors. In the past, we often carried the tendency to hastily promote people to fill the void left in some of our higher positions. This is something we have recently been trying to stray from in pursuit of a more "quality over quantity" atmosphere, which means that such lapses in present leadership may become more commonplace as a consequence. The intended end benefit is to have trained division leaders with more motivation for the role, rather than individuals who are mediocre and merely have the position for the sake of eliminating vacancies. Thank you for your understanding in the matter. View full article

  9. GFL Mobile Gamers 2.0

    The third question in the poll is a very strange one to ask from the beginning, which gave me the impression that this suggestion was just OP memeing us. In the off-chance that I'm being duped and that this is a serious suggestion, I'll give it a fair response. There is a fairly large disconnect between most mobile games and PC games. Some opt to call this the "casual vs. hardcore" dichotomy, in which the heart of the situation lies within the target audiences. The vast majority of casual gamers will prefer mobile games, whilst the same holds true for hardcore gamers towards PC games. GFL's target audience has always been within the latter of that spectrum, and there is little room for overlap. There is bound to be some overlap in that we have members within the community that enjoy mobile games, but they are the minority. I can guarantee that the lion's share of mobile gamers couldn't care less about dedicated gaming communities. We're trying to appeal to John who plays CS:GO, not John's grandmother that plays Candy Crush or Clash Royale. This comes part and parcel with the other disadvantages of many mini divisions, with the most notable one being that we cannot host community servers for such mediums. Not worth the venture, my love.

  11. GFL Mobile Gamers 2.0

    @Dano and I were just playing Ratz Instagib. Why don't we have a mini division for that? Whilst we're at it, why don't we have a cooking show mini division? We'll make the most exquisite meals. @Darkling can be the division leader for it. How about that astronautics mini division? We're going to send people into space with @Joshy heading that mini division. YOU HAVEN'T LIVED UNTIL YOU'VE PLAYED IN MY SPELLING BEE MINI DIVISION

  13. Fair day to you, my loves. We are currently running a 50% discount sale on our supporter and VIP packages until January 4th, 2018. We have been successful with this in the past, and so we shall be doing the same again this year. We hope you enjoy it!
  14. [Winter Sale] Supporter/VIP 50% Off

    Thanks for telling us this. It should be fixed now.

  17. What languagesdo you speak?

    The language I write best after English is German, whilst the language I speak best after English is Japanese. I'm far from fluent in either, although I do pride myself on my mastery of English.
  18. New Discord Moderator application

    -1 (pages of messages—not 100% accurate of activity, but can be a rough indicator) I'm not going to outright say that you're inactive, but you yourself admit that you use text chat less than voice. This is all well and good, but the first step we have to making a Discord moderator team is to find members that are particularly active within the main medium of communication, which happens to be our text channels.
  19. New Discord Moderator application

    +1 (pages of messages—not 100% accurate of activity, but can be a rough indicator) Your activity alone is impressive. It would feel like a waste for us to not capitalise on this. This is made easier to say in that I do not think you have a reputation for any sort of vile behaviour. I've been out of the loop with GFL's internal affairs for a few months, so I'll leave it to other higher-ups to PM me if I'm wrong on that. My vote will remain the same until then.
  20. New Discord Moderator application

    +1 Benroy is another obvious choice for this new team. Articulate, active—capable of handling the vast majority of matters. My only concern would be that he cannot—by virtue of his deafness—deal with most cases relating to voice chat. This is a minor concern at worst, since I feel that we'll have no shortage of people that can.
  21. New Discord Moderator application

    +1 Similar to Kubnair in that you're clearly active in the Discord server. You're never one to cause any problems or friction with others, and the prior experience in other Discord servers is always a notable factor.
  22. New Discord Moderator application

    +1 Kubnair is by far one of the most active people in the Discord servers. He has good relations with most in the community and obviously knows how to handle matters in Discord with his prior experience.
  23. FCC Overturns Net Neutrality vote 3 - 2

    @Finnick I might actually have to add a forum rule that expressly forbids you from posting overly cringeworthy videos. I might actually have to do it.
  24. My apologies if I notification spammed anyone whilst I was updating the staff lists. Feel free to needlessly tag me in Discord as a form of revenge.

     

    Fairnight and sweet dreams, everyone.
