    R&R Changes - August 2019

    By Travesty,

    As we reflect on the current and ongoing changes to our community, we must continuously evolve the way we accept and promote new members to our community. Previously member discussions were held on our forums and since the inception of the sG Discord it was clear that most (if not all) discussions have moved to the plethora of channels we currently have in our Discord server. It is clear that members utilize our Discord for its convenience for discussion. We are content that our Discord server is alive and well with the activity that takes place.


    You have likely noticed our community servers have taken a big dip in population and activity (similar to most CS:GO communities). Currently we rely on our recruits and members to play on sG servers to increase their hours for acceptance into the community or to promote their rank. Since CS:GO Custom Servers have become less popular for members in our community to play in their free time, we must also update our R&R model to reflect these changes.


    We still have a few popular niche servers with Surf and Bhop growing everyday. Shoutout to Kid Fearless, Daniel and Zebra for continuously working hard on those servers to maintain a steady population. However we can no longer expect our members to consistently play on all of our servers. It has become increasingly clear that our members enjoy playing other games than CS:GO with members and we look to still capitalize on that for our community. Our community was built on members playing games with each other and we want that to continue rather than see our community activity fizzle out. We need to find a way to encourage growth and welcome new members.


    With the combination of Discord being used more frequently and with CS:GO Custom Servers becoming less and less popular, I'm sure you can see how our current Recruitment and Ranks model will have to adapt and change for newer members to continue to rank up. Most of our senior members would be able to rank up in our current model but we need to focus on new members of our community for it to continue to strive. 


    Staff took a vote and we agreed that removing server hour and post requirements would be a positive way to evolve. Recruits and members would still need to be active enough in order to be known in the community, whether that's through conversations on Discord or some remaining activity on our servers. Members will still need to get the votes required to get their rank and in order to do so they will need to be active within our community. We continue to encourage members to vote on applications or refer new recruits as that will be the main way a recruit/member gets accepted. As well we stress that you should only vote yes if you feel the applicant deserves their new rank or if they have been active enough to receive it. 


    The following changes to be put in place are more welcoming and less daunting for new members who want to become a member of sG and for those that would like to rank up in our community.


    These changes, just as any other changes, are far from permanent. If another game comes out where we can see consistent activity and population on custom community servers, we will continue to update our R&R model to reflect that.


    Now with all that being said, we are also planning to roll out more incentives for being a member of Syndicate Gamers. Stay tuned for more details regarding small raffles that will be held on a monthly basis.


    Please see all changes below which will be in effect starting on September 1st, 2019.

    May 28th, 2019 - Community Update

    By Mimic,

    Hey everyone,


    First, I am pleased to announce the return of the Syndicate Gamer’s Rust server. Due to the growth that Rust has seen in the recent month(s) we are (re)expanding our horizons. Please look forward to the setup and release of this server in the coming future!


    In addition, It’s time for a quick staff update to give a few servers much needed Advisors to facilitate growth of these servers, and to oversee and manage the server(s) overall. These people have proven themselves to be motivated and dedicated enough to promote the growth of their respective servers, and we are glad to give them the opportunity to continue to do so moving forward.


    Please welcome the following new members to Staff:

    • Bluestreak - Jailbreak Advisor
    • Zebra - Skill Surf Advisor


    Next, I’d like to announce that Vexer will be taking up the role of Rust Advisor as we trial the game for our community. He will be working with Karma and the rest of the Engineering staff on designing, administrating, and maintaining the Rust server.


    Following that, I am sad to announce that we will be closing the KZ/Climb Server due to the lack of interest from the Community, and lack of updates/support for the server in recent months. Along with this, I am sad to announce that Tristan will be leaving Staff, and we wish him the best of luck in the future. Additionally, Thew will also be leaving Staff from his position as Advisor, and I would also like to wish him the best of luck in the future.


    As always, if you are interested in becoming a Staff member, please submit an application at the Staff Applications page. We are always interested in recruiting new people to help out!

    Minigames Mapping Contest

    KiD Fearless
    By KiD Fearless,


    Syndicate Gamers has teamed up with gamebanana and 6 other communities to host a minigame mapping contest. The goal of this contest is to bring new and creative maps to the minigames community. The contest starts immediately and runs until Jul 7th, 2019 11:55 pm UTC.



    1st place:  $250

    2nd place:  $100

    3rd place:  $50




    • Multigame maps will be rated higher than minigame maps
    • Unique, interesting and varied activities for the players to play on.
    • Multigame style maps will be favored, however other single game mode style maps are still allowed and could still score well if the concept and execution are good. Course maps won't be considered and shouldn't be entered.
    • Visuals will be an important factor. Maps should look good and be well executed throughout the map.
    • Optimization will also be considered. Maps shouldn't cause large frame drops or lag.





    1. Every submission must be a playable Minigame level for CS:GO!
    2. Course style maps are not allowed.
    3. Entries must be submitted onto the site (GameBanana.com) and tagged as a contest entry before the deadline.
    4. Entries must include the banner shown in the description somewhere in the map where it is clearly visible to everybody. If you really don't want to use the banner, you can implement all the logos/text that are on the banner in another way. Just make sure the logos are still clearly visible.
    5. If the entry is uploaded to an external site, it must state that it was created for the CSGO Minigame Mapping Contest.
    6. Submitted content must be considered "Original", entries should not be rethemes, version 2's or copies of other minigame maps.
    7. The submission can use pre-existing assets such as existing models and textures, but enough work should be done to consider the submission a 'new release' made for this competition. Simply re-uploading a previous piece of work will not count.
    8. Multiple entries are allowed, however, quality is better than quantity.
    9. Each entrant may only win a maximum of one (1) prize.
    10. Team-based entries are allowed, but the entrants will have to decide and agree on how to split any prizes awarded.
    11. Entries cannot be modified after the deadline except for changes to the submission profile (changing the description, notes or screenshots).
    12. Judges cannot enter or assist entrants.


    To qualify, the submissions must be uploaded to gamebanana and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE! For more information and to sign up for the contest visit contest post here: https://gamebanana.com/contests/97
