    How to register:
    1. Download pokerstars client (pokerstars.net)
    2. Register your account
    3. Click on the right tab that says “home games”
    4. Click join a poker club. Type the ID as 709399 and the code is: UV > sG bitches!
    5. An event staff will receive your membership request and validate it.

    MAKE SURE YOU ALSO REGISTER FOR THE TOURNAMENT

    1. Sign in to Poker Stars
    2. Go into sG's House of Poker lobby
    3. Go to the Schedule Tab
    4. Double click the tourney
    5. Register


    Registration is OPEN. All are welcome to play, but to win prizes you must be:

    -Part of the poker club
    -Registered on the forums (for at least 2 weeks prior to the tournament)
    -Not banned from the forums or servers at the time of the tournament

     

    Also PokerStars has decided to force a minimum buy in of 20k chips. As time goes on they may increase it further. They want people to buy chips basically. If you make new account our current information tells us you start with 35k chips so new players will be ok in playing. If you already have an account make sure you have the needed chips. The client has a free chip button in the top right corner. It refreshes every couple of hours so you could log in once a day over a week and have more then the necessary chips to participate.  Below is an email response I got asking about the changes.

     

     

    Hello (Classified),

     

    Thank you for contacting us.

     

    We can confirm that we have initiated some changes in regards to the play money offer for our Home Games. These changes were taken to align Home Games with the overall changes we made to the Play Money economy in the main lobby a couple of months ago.

     

    As of December 2016, we have removed all stakes below 20K for Home Game tournaments. The buy-in ranges from 20K to 1M. Please also note that we do not offer anymore an unlimited rebuy option for tournaments. 

     

    For Home Game Ring Games, the minimum buy-in currently is at 20K/100K. 

     

    The Home Games system is a premium format that provides a lot of value to players in terms of organizing and running games with friends, and charging a little for this service is quite reasonable. 

     

    Please note that we offer play money chips bundles with huge amount of chips at very low prices. For as little as $2.99 you can buy half a million play money chips, enough to fund 25 tournament buy-ins even if you don't hit the bubble in any of them. We believe this is still a solid value, as it offers potentially hours of entertainment for just a few dollars (or just pennies, if you win more often than your buddies). 

     

    Let us know if we can help you further and thank you for your understanding.

     

    Best regards,

    Staff Changes

     

    Hi everyone,

     

    We are delivering on our promise to make additional Staff changes to further assist with our goal of keeping Staff active within the servers and the community. This time around we are pleased to announce the addition of one new JCS, and welcome back an old one, as well as pleased to announce the addition of several Staff members to assist in the development and overall upkeep of our servers.

     

    I am pleased to announce the following members will be joining Staff:

    • ESDaman - Recruitment Officer
    • Swed - General Engineer
    • KidFearless - Minigames Advisor

     

    In addition, I would like to welcome Moose on as a member of our Joint Chief of Staff roster. Throughout his time on Staff he has proven to be diligent in both a technical role and a community role and we are glad to welcome him into the fold. In this position Moose will be overseeing Ranks and Recruitment as well as Public Relations and Community Affairs.

     

    Lastly, I would also like to welcome Eddy back to his role as a Joint Chief of Staff after an extended leave of absence due to personal issues outside of the community. As a JCS he will be overseeing the community financials and ensuring the delivery of our subscriptions.

    Thanks to Bulletford, we've added a new automated PM that goes out to new members who join the forums! This PM has information such as Global Guidelines, how to apply to sG, how to appeal a ban, and a ton of other incredibly useful information. Along with this, we are working on rewarding players on specific servers that sign up on our forums and link their steam account. Details coming soon.

     


    Server Updates

     

    GMOD Custom TTT

    Through much hard work from our staff team, namely ZachPL, Moose, Avenger, Jeff The Flying Shark and Reaper, we have brought back our GMOD Custom TTT Server! Come hop on the server and try it out if you haven't yet. Server IP: 216.105.171.123:27025.

     

    Warcraft 3:GO

    People who purchase the War3 Supporter package can now join the #war3_supporter channel on the sG discord. This gives them exclusive access to staff discussion and server changes multiple days before they take effect. Pick up War3 Supporter and join the conversation today! See more information here.

     

    Face is back, guns blazing. With changes coming every week, be certain to keep up with the changes on this thread. Over 80 races have already been buffed/nerfed, and we expect to see Air Elemental, Warrior, and an unannounced race released in the near future!

     

    Zombie Escape

    With the help of fps_trucka, Mimic, Bulletford, Moose and Crobat. The server is stable once again and has gained quite a bit of population. As always, a big thanks to the regulars and sG members that helped populate the server.

     

    As well, a big thanks to AntiTeal for working hard for our ZE server, he's not with us anymore sadly, but he is still willing to help us, just not as a Staff member. He also coded the ZE Supporter perk, which includes features such as extra cash, reviving at the middle of the round and immunity to AFK Manager.

     

    TTT:GO

    The Newton Launcher is finally on our TTT CS:GO server! Get your hands on this puppy and launch the enemy into space!

    Populating our servers

    We know the population of our servers has been less than optimal. However, we have seen dedication, not only from our Staff and Server Officers, but also from the Community Members to try and get the servers repopulated and back to their former glory.

    Staff Changes 9/17/17

    Mimic
    By Mimic,

    Hi everyone,

     

    It’s time for another round of Staff changes, this time with a goal of maximizing server activity and interaction between Staff and the community. With these changes we are looking to begin making the changes on Staff necessary for maximizing Staff’s overall presence on our servers and improve Staff’s communication overall with the community. Since we are looking to improve the overall activity on our servers, Recruitment Officers will no longer be focusing on hosting community events (but are greatly encouraged to do so), rather community activity, moderation, and recruitment will be their main goals. Please note that there will be further Staff changes coming in the near future, so stay tuned for them.

     

    With these changes in mind, we will be welcoming 6 new Recruitment Officers on to our ranks. Each of these members have proven themselves to be dedicated to our servers and community, and we are glad to welcome them aboard. Please welcome the following new Recruitment Officers:

     

    • Krony
    • Travesty
    • Lindsay
    • Sean
    • Ironic
    • Grayson Levi

     

    Furthermore, we are sad to announce the departure of the following Staff members. We would like to thank them for their time and efforts put toward improving the community, and wish them the best of luck in the future:

     

    • Hawk
    • Mark From Facebook
    • Chewy
    • Nuggetthenoble

     

    Next I am pleased to announce the following members will be returning on to Staff with a focus on server development and activity. Please extend a warm welcome to both Face and Crobat who will be working in the positions of Warcraft 3 Engineer and Zombie Escape Advisor respectively.

     

    Last, I would like to point out that the Staff Applications page has been updated for positions we are looking to fill, or are constantly accepting applications for. If you are interested in a position, please submit an application at http://www.joinsg.net/staff-application/. Please note that we do clear applications after every Staff Changes post, so feel free to re-apply if you’re still interested in a position.

    • Nether/End: PVP off

     

    6fA17KR.png

     

    Rules:

     

    Server Rules:

    1. sG Global Guidelines apply at all times
    2. No Hacks/X-Ray/Flight, etc. 
    3. No inappropriate player skins.

    4. Do not make any attempt to crash or slow down the server.

    5. Report all bugs or glitches immediately to an admin, not reporting it could get you banned.

     

    PVP Zone Rules:

    1. All Server rules apply
    2. Spawn killing and spawn trapping is not allowed

    3. No excessive griefing

    4. No teleporting away (/home, /spawn, etc) while in combat. 

     

    Build Zone Rules: 

    1. All Server rules apply
    2. No stealing
    3. No Griefing
    4. No trespassing
    5. Don’t create 1x1 towers or pits.
    6. Please! If you are cutting down a tree, cut down the whole tree not just parts of it!

    7. Do not build too close to the spawn area. If spawn expands, your build will be moved if it is too close.

     

    Nether/End Rules:

    1. sG Global Guidelines
    2. All Build Zone rules. 

     

    Lockette:

     

    In order to minimize stealing and griefing in the build zone, I have added a plugin called Lockette. This plugin allows you to lock doors, furnaces, chests, and a few other things. This means only you and other's you specify can use/open them. To keep PVP interesting, people can break into your locked chests in the PVP side of the world. But you build zone chests are still safe!. 

     

    How to use Lockette:

     

    Spoiler

    For players, just hold a sign in your hand, then right click a chest or any lockable block. If you want to lock a door, you may put a sign on the block above or below the door too. You may also SHIFT+RIGHT CLICK the block to prevent it get automatically locked, or you can write [Private] text manually on signs as well.

    zfGn67x.png

     

    Advanced Usage:

    Spoiler

    Share the chest with another user:
    After claiming the chest, you can add another user on the sign. First, right click the sign, then enter /lock 3 <user name>
    poX5NDK.png


    Share the chest with everyone:
    Same as above, you just use [Everyone] (with brackets) in the username.

    pCZTX97.png


    Add another sign:
    If one sign is not enough, you may hold a sign and right click on another surface. It will snap on the surface and become a [More User] sign automatically. Placing the sign while holding SHIFT will bypass the sign creation.

     

    4qfm3IG.png

    Timer with doors:
    I have no idea why Lockette is doing this, but I am adding this feature anyways. If you add a line [timer:X] (with brackets, and X means an integer) to a door lock, the door will automatically close after X seconds.

    Even more information, please see https://github.com/connection-lost/LockettePro/wiki Wiki.

     

     

     

     

    Sign Shop:

    This allows you to make sign shops. You can use these signs to buy and sell items.
