We moved all threads from General Gaming, Teamspeak, Strategy (Dota2, LoL, WoW) and Overwatch, etc. into one... now called General Gaming and Teamspeak. Here you can talk all things gaming related (new games or current games you want to play or discuss with other sG members, etc) with exception to our own hosted server discussion... save that for the Divisional Forums.
We also moved the Entertainment Center, Fitness, Sports, etc threads into The Pub. I kept some of the more prominent stickies but most of the others are now a 'Featured Thread'. They won't be stickied but have a star in front of the title. However, most of them weren't posted in for over a year, so it's cleaned up a little. If you think your recent stickied topic should be stickied again, post in here and we'll consider it. In the future, please use The Pub for anything related to the amalgamated topics of General Discussion.
Anything that has a more serious tone like News, Politics or any serious topics you'd like discussed without trolls or funny memesters, please use the Serious Discussion subforum. Any trolling done in that subforum will result in a loss of privileges to post in that subforum.
Now you may be wondering... why the changes? Well we wanted to promote more discussion within the rest of the forums for any General Discussion or Gaming. Really the main section of discussion happens in the Talk Mad Shit threads in the 'Members Only' subforum that only the Members of sG can see. Having these threads all one place will allow more people to see each topic rather than sifting through each subforum and subsection. Hopefully allowing more people to click on the thread you created and want discussed.
Right now we don't get a lot of daily traffic in any other part of the forum except in 'Members Only'. There really wasn't a big need for all the subforums because the lack of new topics generated each month. So hopefully with these changes it will give more people the chance to see what others are talking about, rather than using the 'Unread Content Stream' (which is pretty much every thing all in one place). Also General Gaming and our Teamspeak server go hand-in-hand so we are hopeful it will get more people talking about casual games we can pick up and play with other people from the community.
These aren't big changes but they are changes nonetheless and might take some time to get used to. One thing I will suggest, that I've had all along, is to change the settings in your profile to Automatically Follow Content. Simply go into your Profile Settings -> Notifications. This will give you a notification in the top right of the forums and it will keep you up to date on any post that is made to any topic you have created or replied to. I find it really handy and lets me know anytime there's a new post in a thread I'm interested in.
See below for a picture of what to check off:
Let us know what you think. Positive or negative. Feedback is welcome. If it's becoming an issue after the summer, we will consider moving it back into the separate subforums and subsections. For now... we hope you enjoy the new layout.
Now for all the Thank You Threads... I will be combining all the thank you threads into one mega Thank You sG thread where you can make a post within the thread rather than creating a new topic each time.
Thanks for reading. Have a great summer.

Go to this thread to sign up for the CS:GO tournament. Include your gameme link, mm rank, and whether you are interested in being a captain in your post.

***If you no-show during the tournament you will be banned from the next CS:GO Tournament***
sG's Global Server Guidelines apply.
No excessive flaming and trolling. (Keep the shit-talking to a minimum)
No intentional griefing of teammates and other players.
Sky-walking or wall glitching is forbidden.
Boosting is fine unless it is to places where textures/walls are missing in view.
Planting bombs in places where they cannot be defused by the other team is forbidden. Boost plants or plants where many players are required to defuse are allowed.
Grenade bugs are not allowed. (ex. Throwing into certain spaces to create infinite sound loop.)
Using any form of hack, cheat, script, or any other 3rd party program to further aid you and your team is STRICTLY forbidden and you will be held to the same punishment as a normal sG Server. (Does not include voice programs such as Teamspeak or Ventrilo)
Remember you are playing on sG servers so all punishments will be global.
Sitting in spectator, regardless of team, is not allowed during a match. (Not including GOTV)
Absolutely no subs.
If the a team is not ready in within the 10 minutes after their time started they either have to play with what they have or forfeit the match. (If a player is late to the prior match they may join in at anytime of the game)
**Failing to comply may result in disqualification from the tournament and the next tournaments**
To have preset times so everyone knows when you have to be available in the day we have decided to limit the number of teams to 12.
Times are in CST
Friday 15th - 7pm to 10pm
Saturday 16th - 3pm to 10pm
Sunday 17th - 3pm to 6pm
Teams are comprised of 6 team members for which you can cycle people in and out. No sub system, meaning if more than one person doesn't show up you have to play with what you have.
Teams will be picked on Saturday, July 9th. All captains that have been notified must be on sG Teamspeak by 4 PM CST to pick their teams.
This will be a traditional 5v5 Counter-strike tournament using the same rules that other leagues do.
1:55 round time
40 second bomb timer
15 second freeze time
Knife for sides
Best out of 30 rounds (16 rounds win)
Side change after 15 rounds
Matches will be best out of 1 or 3 maps depending on match. (See bracket for more details **subject to change based on team numbers**)
Maps will be chosen in an elimination format. The first team to eliminate a map from the pool will be randomly chosen. The last remaining map will be played first, second to last second, and third to last third in a best out of three. In a best out of one the last map remaining will be played.
During a tiebreaker teams stay on their previous ending teams.
Each team is required to screenshot the final scoreboard after the match ends
The winning team will be required to post the final screenshots of all the maps to prove their victory (In the appropriate forum)
Teams are required to be on time to their scheduled match. Teams will be allowed to have 10 minutes from the schedule time before they will be forced to forfeit in case of an absent player/s
It is the team's responsibility to make sure their fellow members show up to the posted times.
Remember you have 6 players who can all play on your team throughout the tournament. If one person doesn't show up cycle in your other teammate.
This tournament will be using a double elimination bracket.
If a team wins the placement match they are moved into the upper bracket.
The upper bracket will have the upper hand in the finals.
If a team in the upper bracket loses a match they are then moved down into the lower bracket.
If a team loses in the lower bracket after the placement match they are out of the tournament.
A graphic will be put up for display before the tournament to better help teams visualize who they are playing and how to get to the finals.
The finals will be the winners of the Upper Bracket versus the Lower bracket. (To be BO5 upper bracket gets map advantage)
