  Moving to New Forums
Posted by: Sparhawk - 06-01-2017, 12:02 AM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (3)

Hey everybody!

As JaXm has previously stated, we are in the process of transitioning to a shiny new set of forums. In order to help us with that, I would love if everyone that reads this and is a member of the community, be they GK or not were to head over there and register. That way when we shut these forums down, everyone won't have to do it all at once and things will be smoother all around.

http://gkserver.us/

Keep in mind they are a work in progress, so if you have suggestions for improvement please post them over there, Veni will be posting a thread to that end on the new site.


Also, if everyone could make a point of getting Discord and connecting to our server, that would be awesome. We plan to move away from TeamSpeak going forward since we feel it is becoming a out of date.

Discord server:

Thanks, Sparhawk

Additionally please post in this thread after making an account. http://gkserver.us/forum/general/news-announcements/178-forum-organization

Thanks, Veni.

  Age of Empires 2 4v4 Tournament *Prizes Included*
Posted by: Marquis - 05-07-2017, 10:10 PM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (5)

Greetings Friends (... and Romans... and Countrymen),


In the interest of stimulating activity in those old-time strategy games we all know and love, I will be hosting an Age of Empires 2 HD 4v4 Tournament for this upcoming summer. 

Important Information

Sign Ups: End 1st of June



General Format: 4v4 Single Elimination

Essentially, every team which signs up for this will be added to a bracket of players, who will each face one other team each week as they progress up the bracket, until eventually one team is left victorious.

For Each week, teams will play in other in a Best of 3 (First to 2) Format*. 

*Note, because AoE2 games may range anywhere from 1-3 hours, it is not expected for teams to complete all their matches back to back, or even on the same day. They simply have until the end of the week's deadline to complete all their matches. Should both teams be unable to agree on a specific time, one will be provided by the admin's discretion, and all players who can make such a time will compete to determine the winner of said stage.

Fixtures:
Map: Depends on the week (Each tier of the tournament will have a specific map, such as black forest, arabia, coastal, etc; Nomad will be disallowed.)
Factions: Team's Choice (I am not restricting the factions, it is the players' prerogative to know the inherent strengths/weaknesses of each faction. Likewise, I am not requiring mirrored matches between factions. I believe it is more interesting to allow for wider gameplay. Lastly you can change between games.)
Map Size: Giant
Resources: Standard
Population: 500
Game Speed: Normal
Reveal Map: Normal (Starts Unexplored)
Starting Age: Dark
Ending Age: Imperial
Treaty Length: None
Victory: Conquest
Teams: Locked
All Techs: Off
Team Together: On
Lock Speed: On
Cheats: Off (Duh)


Screenshots will be taken by captains of both teams of 

a.) The lobby once all teams have readied up and the match is in the process of being launched
b.) The scoreboard of the overall statistics following the match

orSmile

Record the game and upload the replay file.

The host should have a good enough PC to record in game.

Team Format: 

Each Team may consist of four (4) or five (5) players, consisting of 4 starters and one backup in case of emergencies.

Each player is required to have an affiliation with a warband clan (or the game itself) in order to participate. The goal of this tournament is to form a competition between warband players in an RTS style game, rather than attempting to draw 'professional' AoE2 players onto your team in a bid for victory.

It is strongly suggested that each player possess, in addition to the game 'Age of Empires II HD', at least [i]one DLC[/i] (Forgotten Empires, African Kingdoms, Rise of Rajas). Those that fail to play without at least one DLC will (as per the game mechanic) be reduced to choosing out of a pool of 6 factions that are randomized. Obviously this may have severe repercussions on their team's overall gameplay. The new ruleset will be considered the default. All 8 players must agree to downgrade.



Prizes:

Now, while I may hope that many players will sign up for this simply to enjoy the game, I am not above a little persuasion as well. Therefore, the winning team of this tournament will receive $80 (US) in steam gift cards as a reward for victory.


PS: To those viewing this thread, you are not required to sign up on the forums nor post on this thread. Simply message myself or Veni with your team, and should you fulfill the requirements, you will be added to the list of teams.


Teams:
Assured Victory: Marquis, Veni, RubbingMyAxe, Fox
Bread and Butter: Ron Burgundy, Mad Dawg, Unix, Cru

  The Future of GK (Important)
Posted by: JaXm - 03-22-2017, 12:18 AM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (5)

Hey all,

The past few days have been a very exciting time for all of us working in the background setting up the future of this clan. We currently have a huge list of plans drawn out to take GK back from the grave and further than it has *ever* been before. We will make GK great again!

We are in the very early phases at this time with a ton of moving parts. I would like to go ahead and share a few of the upcoming additions to take us down this path.

GK will depend on all of you to see us through this transition and make it into what it needs to be!

This project will not be done quickly. We will be taking our time to make sure it gets done right the first time around. It is also a massive amount of work to handle as well. You can expect to see additional threads created for help wanted applications for various positions we need filled/help with.

A *huge* shoutout to Sparhawk and Veni who have been essential to this project.

Thank you all for your support and sticking with us!
