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.




- Mimic, Chairman of the JCS

Changes to New Users on the Forums


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



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:


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.



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.

I wonder who will be our first rank app next month. much excite!


this is gonna be 'uuuuuuuuge!

yuuger than the waallllll


This is definitely helpful though; I have always wondered how exactly the rank structure was supposed to work... now it's explicit & public

The new application system is definitely going to be nicer though... (even if it is more difficult in some ways)


Though, a question: can the "added percentages" to sub hours for posts be applied to rank apps too, or only clan apps?

You've always been able to sub hours for posts and vice versa for rank applications.

its for both Recruit Applications and Rank Applications.


So if you don't have enough posts to apply, etc. you can sub them for server hours.


Hope to see you apply @nymical. I like your forum presence a lot. Quality posts.
