    bump. what emotes do you guys want.
  2. Hello everyone, I know we are halfway into January and it is the new year but it is never too late to give recognition to those who deserve it. These two gentlemen have been outstanding staff members from the day they joined the team. They both might get made fun of a lot but they still push through and spend countless hours making the servers a better place for everyone. I cannot give you a number that would be worthy of describing how much this guy gets shit on on the daily. We might all make fun of this guy for being mute but we secretly love him for all the work he puts in on the Modding Team and everything he contributes for as a Community Advisor. As I mentioned earlier, this guy has been an excellent staff member from the day he applied for a position. Please join me in congratulating the person we use as a scapegoat for everything that goes wrong, @20 scrolls. Congratulations on Staff of the Month. I'm not done yet. This next guy has been destined to be in the spot he is in today. I am not even sure if this guy sleeps. He's coming up with new topics and contributing to discussions all day on top of maintaining Jailbreak and making it better for everyone. He may be the Jailbreak Server Manager but he is also so much more than that. I always see him working alongside his peers to help keep up with theirs servers. Some may find him to be annoying because of his work pace but he's just a hardworking individual who cares about Steam-Gamers a whole lot. He took his role as Server Manager and ran with it. Please join me in congratulating @TheZZLfor achieving Staff of the Month.
  3. I could go on forever but I think you get the point. Yes, we occasionally get good responses from regs but most of the time it is responses like these that are not helpful. We see a lot of responses talking about forum activity but we do not even require that anymore. You don't have to have a certain amount of forum posts or have any kind of "active" forum presence. Some people just want to play the game and help deal with rule breakers. BoTo has like less than 30 public posts or something like that lol. If we were to remove all of the bad admin application responses then we would get an admin application with a bunch of hidden responses and what would that do? What a lot of people do not understand is that you are not obligated to post on literally every single admin application. They might not play on your server or you might have never interacted with them. People still decide vote on these anyways and they drop responses such as "never seen you on my server" or something along those lines. Again.. some people like to play just TTT. There's nothing wrong with that. I just wanted to play Surf. I didn't want to play Jailbreak or MG or ZE. I just played Surf so I applied for Surf admin. I have scrolled through a lot of admin responses and seen a lot of crappy and half assed responses from Regs and Admins and then I see a nice thoroughly written response from someone who is CA or higher. I've seen a lot of admin applications that are filled with useless posts but then I come across a post from ZZL, Arctic, Hawks, or any other higher up staff member and they thoroughly explain their reason for voting and their experience with said applicant. Often times these responses from regs or admins are saying they are in support for the applicant but then a higher up will say that they are in fact not ready for admin. Which response do you think we value more? The reg or the higher up? Higher ups have been staff for much longer and they know how things work. They know what to look for in an applicant. A lot of the people responding have never even been admin. Over the past couple of months the CAs have been telling us that the quality of our admins has been in decline and it is pretty clear to see in some cases. A lot of this supposed dick sucking that will happen has always happened. This change in system isn't gonna change whose dick is gonna get sucked. You apply for admin and a bunch of your friends reply in support of you and then we give you admin and you get 3 admin complaints within 3 months.

    I'm going to start this off with something that you probably won't love, an ABSTAIN.

    I don't know you all to well, but the times I have been in a game with you a haven't seen you as a stand out at all, I can't even distinguish a single time I've seen or heard you, but I know I have.

    So keep up the good work.

    I'd be happy to change my vote if I could meet you tomorrow!

  8. Congratulations. Well deserved to all of you.
  9. Hello everyone! With the recent success of our Squad server, we have decided to purchase a brand new dedicated machine with OVH to host even more servers on. We purchased a new dedicated machine instead of going with our current provider for Squad servers because it would open the door to further expansion. Our current Squad provider is charging 64% more than what we pay for the new dedi and we can do more than just Squad on it. This means that we will be shutting down our 24/7 Fallujah #2 server on the 19th but do not worry because we are launching 24/7 Fallujah, 24/7 CAF + Heli, and a 24/7 rotation of the best maps. The servers are actually currently live and we have them all full, all of them. We have 400 players in total on Squad alone. That is absolutely insane. Big thank you to everyone who has helped with the success of the servers. We are very happy with how things are going. We are also going to be looking into maybe moving an entire dedi over to this new one. This will mean that pings will decrease for a lot of you guys because this server is located in Virginia as opposed to our current location in Canada. I'll be posting the specs of the new dedi below. New dedi specs! CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Cores & Threads 8 cores and 16 threads Clock Speed 3.9 GHz and 4.5 GHz with boost RAM 64 GB DDR4 ECC 2666 MHz Storage 2x960GB SSD NVMe Soft Raid
