  Host is being DDoSed
Posted by: Sparhawk - 02-05-2016, 04:21 PM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (11)

I have been told that our server provider is being DDoSed, so they shut down all their servers, which is why we are currently offline. I don't know when the box will be coming back up, but hopefully it is soon. I'll keep you all posted.

  GK Civ 5 Match Sunday 17th @ 6PM EST
Posted by: JaXm - 01-15-2016, 08:29 PM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (7)

Hey guys, been a while since we did a Civ 5 round...

Looking to get started at around 7PM EST this Sunday! Reply to thread if you plan to attend!


*NEW* This match will be hosted using a PitBoss game hosting type! Differences from a normal match is it will be running directly from our dedi so the performance will be much smoother for everyone including the EU based players. If a player disconnects, it will not drop an AI in and will wait until they can reconnect again. This can also be left running in the background and you can setup steam/email alerts notifying when you can play your turn. So if we do not finish the match that night, we can continue on throughout the week!

Also, to accommodate this server, I have increased server resources by about 50% which I will be paying for myself... So please let's get a great turnout!

Match type and rules will be decided based on number of players and what everyone wants to play. Usually we run a FFA and let the politics work themselves out!

DoF_Darin *may* end up doing a twitch stream for it as well and he will be inviting other DoF members to attend as well, so we might even be able to do a GK vs DoF...

Please have ALL DLC as well!

  Steam Warning - Important
Posted by: JaXm - 12-25-2015, 06:29 PM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (7)

Hey guys, steam was acting up for me today for a while, then I noticed this article -
http://www.neowin.net/news/steam-down-on-christmas-day-amid-fears-of-ddos-attack


Highlights that are important you should know about:

Update: Some users are now reporting being able to log back into Steam, but are finding themselves logged-in to someone else's account when they do so. According to multiple user reports, if you are logged-in as another user, you are able to view their credit card information, account balance and account name. Hundreds of users have reported issues over on the Reddit post - along with an official moderator claiming that Valve are working on these issues

Valve is now recommending that you do not log-in to any Steam website, app or community system until this issue is resolved. Steam Moderator indigenousOres said

As a precaution, Valve has now disabled access to the Steam Store and community features, to try and limit the amount of personal information that has been freely available.

  Smashmas #3 Brackets and Rules
Posted by: Veni_Vidi_Vici - 12-18-2015, 10:29 PM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (3)

Hello Everyone!

Kr8dle, Theo and I have consorted to finalize a lot of the Tourney details.

Important: If you do not sign up in either thread by 7:30 EST on Sat 19, you will not be eligible for the prize. You may sign your friends up.


Server: US_GK_Smashmas
Password: "smashmas"
Gold: 1500 without any extra available
Speed: Medium
Module: NeoGK/Native
You must be on TS and able to hear other people to participate. The address is ts3.gkserver.us

Duel Format/Factions:
At the sponsors bequest, unlike previous years we will not be allowing only two factions, Instead different factions will be used for each class of fighting. The server will swap factions/duel modes about every 7-10 minutes at most. Expect things to move on by 7 minutes. If for some reason this fails we will probably go back to Vaegirs v Swads for everything.
Melee: Nords v Rhodoks
Ranged: Vaegirs v Rhodoks
Mounted: Nords v Sarranids

Each class will get three fights. You will fight 9 times total. The scheduler (me) will need to know your how many times you won in each category. I would prefer to be given this info via TS Poke or steam message.
Semifinal rounds will be allowed 5 fights/category. The final will allow 7 fights/category.

Duel Rules:

1. You may choose either faction in each category. You do not have to be a different faction from your opponent. You do not have to stay in the same equipment get up or faction for all three fights. You are expected to stay in the appropriate class. (Inf/Archer/Cav) You may use NeoGK equipment. You may not use ranged weapons as Cav or Inf.

2. You are allowed to agree on a practice round or two or to discount a poor match, but please remember the server may need to move on. Both duelists are expected to agree.

3. Ranged duelists are expected to carry only 1 stack of ammunition. Duels will start after both players say ready in all chat to allow time to get to cover. You may not melee rush until after 1 minute of fighting.

4. Mounted duelists lose the round if dismounted.

5. Duelists are allowed to choose the zone in which they fight. The agreement must be mutual and the area sufficiently large. Avoid overlapping each other. Once a zone is being used consider it closed until the map resets for the next round of combat. i.e. first come first serve.

6. Arbitrators/Refs cannot be provided for everyone all the time. I will be freakishly busy managing brackets and the server. This hasn't been a problem in the past and I would like to keep things honorable and gentlemanly/womanly.

7. The winner of a dueling pair will be whoever wins the majority of the fights (5/9 or more, 8/15, 12/21). Please fight all rounds. New opponents will be assigned at the end of the archery round/start of the infantry round.

8. Rules are largely the same if we have to move to Vaegirs v Swadia without rotating factions/foci.

Bracket Info:
The bracket system I use is a bit weird. The bracket everyone starts in looks "normal" until there is one person left. If you lose a round in the starting bracket you drop to the first consolation consolation bracket in the round you came from. This way the upper consolation round will run at the same time as the second round of the main bracket. You lose there you go to the lower consolation bracket. The winner of the main bracket will defend from the winner of the upper consolation for the main prize. etc.
