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! Applications Writer Applications: - Writers are tasked with creating Newsletters and taking on requests for GFL.

August/September/October 2019 Newsletter A small introduction Hey there, I just wanted to take this moment to introduce myself. Hello, I am Trigger, the Writing Team's Leader. From now on I will be managing the Writing Team and everything they do. I have a lot of great ideas for the future of the Writing Team and hope to see them come to light! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to PM me. Thank you and enjoy the GFL Newsletter! The Newsletter ------2 New CS:GO servers, Minigames and 24/7 AWP------ After much long discussion and debate, please welcome two brand new servers to GFL’s server list, 24/7 AWP and Mini-games! Both were highly requested from players since the success of Jailbreak. It’s almost a guarantee that these will do just as great! Please come and visit our servers, we are sure that you will find something you’ll like! You can find CS:GO 24/7 AWP here ---> https://gflclan.com/forums/forum/1061-awp-247/ As well as Mini-games, here ---> https://gflclan.com/forums/forum/1060-minigames/ ------RivalRevival stepping down as Director------ Our dearest friend, Wiggles, has officially stepped down as Director. Wiggles (RivalRevival) has contributed greatly to GFL by leading as a director and supporting the community as a committed player. Over the years, Wiggles has worked his way up the ranks to achieve such a position. His dedication and commitment to GFL prove that he will forever be a reputable player within the community. Though he has left officially, he will still be around Discord to chat with everyone, even coming in once in a while to help the GFL staff. ------Removal of Media Team------ In case you’ve haven’t heard, the Media team and most of the teams in it are officially removed. Our Directors believed that most of the team was unnecessary and time-consuming. Video Editor and Streamer roles were removed with Media Team. However, the Writer role was moved to Public Relations and GFX was made into its own team. This change was foreseen by many, as the workload and effort from these teams were minimal. If you wish to apply for the remaining teams, you can do so here: Public Relations - https://gflclan.com/forms/13-public-relations-application/ GFX - https://gflclan.com/forums/forum/10-graphics-team/ ------The success of PR’s Event Coordinators------ If you haven’t been to one of their “fun times”, well then you’re missing out. The Event Coordinators have created a multitude of events for GFL. Some examples of their work would be movie nights, talent shows, and karaoke. For movie nights, they choose a wide variety of movies to play for the audience. Obviously, it being October they chose horror movies. And I’m sure that for December, they’ll choose Christmas-themed movies. Talent shows were introduced in late October. You can audition for a part and perform in front of an audience! You will need some sort of talent to audition, so make sure to go in unique! More about the Talent Show ---> https://gflclan.com/forums/topic/47860-event-gfls-1st-annual-talent-show/ Movie night seems to be a favorite among members of GFL, so if you have the time make sure to check them out! ------New GFL game in development------ Ever wanted to murder a GFL staff member? Well here’s your chance! In early October, a GFL developer by the name of Rocket came up with the idea to create a “GFL Video Game”. Now, I know what you’re thinking, but hear me out. His idea is to have GFL staff members attack you, the player, all while you simultaneously gun them down with a multitude of weapons. The game will be a 2D platformer with randomly generated levels. As of October 28th, the game is still in development. Hopefully in due time the game will be finished, and should be quite beautiful! ------Partnership with Glitch.win------ In mid-October, a person by the name of Rocky contacted Ben about a possible partnership with their* site. The site, Glitch.win, will reward users for completing in-game objectives. After Ben and Rocky conversed about the matter, they finally came to a wonderful conclusion! That conclusion being that Glitch.win will provide giveaways to GFL , however, in return those who enter the giveaway will have to sign up on their website to qualify. Their giveaways are always new and diverse, so be sure to check out the given rewards!
