  Extended Downtime - Server Migration
Posted by: JaXm - 08-14-2016, 08:40 AM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (12)

This coming weekend on Saturday all servers will be down for an undetermined amount of time. I am migrating everything away from the current VPS in NYC to a full dedi located in Chicago.
GK pricing will remain the same for now, possibly lowered once I balance the load out a bit and see what GK will be needing resource wise.

Pings will obviously change for people. I have found though the Chicago location to be much more stable and reliable of a connection. I actually have a ping of about 20-30ms to Chicago and 40-50ms to NYC. I live in upstate NY, so work out that logic. Pings for EU players will increase by an estimated 10-30ms. Not as big of a concern now that most EU players are playing on EU servers these days. Pings will lower for our West coast players also.

All in all, there really are no cons to doing this move. 

*UPDATE* - All server have been migrated to the new box this morning Sunday 8AM. TS3 IP info needs to be updated on the portal page to show the TS3 stats

  New Feature!
Posted by: Wolflo - 06-09-2016, 06:27 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (11)

Hey all! 

As you may have noticed in recent weeks, we have a new tab in the navigation bar named : "Online Players". This has been a request from GK for quite a while now but we didn't have code required to make it happen. However, thanks to Corpse Striker & Rubbing we were able to realize this dream and the page is now live!

What is it you may ask? It shows a live feed of the *US_GK_TDM* server, with Kills, Deaths and K/D. We plan on adding the siege server next, I just need to make room for it but that should be coming shortly.

Now, this is only phase 1 of this massive project. In the future we'd like to save stats and create a sort of leader board, see players most used weapon, their head shot count, etc. ill also be working on the aesthetic side of the page as we move forward.

We hope you enjoy it!

Corpse Striker: Project lead
Rubbing: Handled bulk of the coding
Wolflo: Page creation
Sento: ...Cheerleader Smile (and gave ftp access to everyone)
Aeneu: Provided the script
Weber: Created the script
Jaxm: Adding files to server
and most of all, GK :  Heart

Note: Ill be on vacation later this month so the project will be on pause. When i get back and everything is in place then we'll move onto phase 2.

  All Servers Down
Posted by: JaXm - 04-05-2016, 10:21 AM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (11)

Woke up to find everything is down. Not sure when it went down.

Appears to be hardware or OS related.

Working on it now

Slow going. Complete OS failure, have to recover from linux partition with a "guide" that is inaccurate... Slow going to say the least. Currently backing up all files to remote server to begin restore

Restoring data onto fresh OS now.

**UPDATE 10:35PM**

Servers coming back on - TS3, Siege and TDM.

Need to confer with Sparhawk to check the other minor servers that need to be put back on

  GK PW Faction Event
Posted by: JaXm - 03-15-2016, 11:17 AM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (8)

WHEN: Friday 3/18/16 @ 8PM EST 
WHERE: Persistent World MB Mod

Alright everyone. We have been starting up on PW again now that there is a decent server being run. Alot of us have been playing it lately but I think it is time for an official GK presence to be shown. 

So, we will be running a GK faction on Friday. Please Read the Rules

***Wear your GK tags with pride!***

If you want to go in and do crafting, serfing, etc that is fine. But our main focus will be the fighting aspect of the mod. We will hopefully engage in several good sized wars and bring back tons of loot!

Throughout the day, I will be serfing and crafting our castle to prepare it for this event. I will also be able to supply gold to any newcomers to the mod as well.

You are free to choose whatever class or gear you want. The only thing I ask is to follow orders. If we say all rally to this castle, I expect to see everyone at that castle and not fighting eachother somewhere else!

Normal rules apply for this event, follow the code of conduct, no teamkilling, etc.

Note: This is not a GK server so their rules on racism, etc are very non-existant. Please do not encourage or participate in any such things, nor should you call them out on it. Just ignore it

Hope to see you all there!

  Siege Event (Good Old Fashioned RP)
Posted by: Marquis - 03-01-2016, 12:12 AM - Forum: Public Announcements - Replies (22)

Italics Indicates RP

(Parenthesis Indicate "Aside" comments)

*Indicate Actual Rules*

Date Finalized: March the 11th, @ 9est

Commentators: Gwaebloom and Kr8dle

Twitch Channel: *Information Forthcoming*

King: Gowe (Backup: Queen/Goddess Zealots)

Royal Commander: Leonidas (Backup: Sparhawk)

Rebel Leader: Snoop (Backup: NatebesoSavage)

Rebel Commander: Cru (Backup: CDJrxx)

A shadow moves across the Golden Kingdom. The trees grow bare, the animals quiet, the nights watchful. Unrest is on the wind. Rumors reach the Golden Capital of a dark threat, a menacing force. Trade from the outlands has been cut off. Brigands appear on the Kingdom's roads without warning, a mysterious, yet somewhat familiar banner used as their excuse for pillaging. The forces of the Kingdom are stretched thin, as the Golden generals attempt to discover the root of the scourge invasion.

It did not take long.

(OK Y'all, I am looking to start another siege event, similar to one we had a month or so. This time, I'm going to get the announcement out a bit early, and will be pulling a lot of strings to make sure this event is a big one. Obviously, pubbers and GK friends will be allowed, but I am guessing I personally may be able to involve as many as 40-50 different people by myself. While siege may be dead for a great majority of the time, it still provides venues for events which TDM simply can't handle. I will not be participating or leading the actual event, but rather coordinating/managing the steady supply of people we will probably have join us.)

*All GK invited, regardless of rank*
*Anyone looking to take an involved part in the RP must be in ts*
*All standard GK rules will be in place during this event, ie no tking, bigotry, etc*

Was he an exiled noble, a dissatisfied knight, a revolting commoner? His origins were unclear, yet his goal was evident. He intended nothing less than domination of the Kingdom's lands and revenue. Hailing from the far north, he had rallied a coalition of other rebellious nobles, foreign mercenaries, and savage barbarian tribes, and brought them to bear against the castles of the Golden Kingdom. Surrounded by a core group who never spoke save to utter death threats, his presence was said to terrify the most stalwart of knights.

(We will have the majority of the GK defending each castle, with a select person leading a rebellion on the attacker side each map. Pubbers will be forced onto the attacking team as the "Savage hordes", so it should be something ideally Defenders 2:3 Attackers, to compensate for skill/numbers. If one side is consistently winning, then it may be possible for some loyalists to "defect" to the rebellion, or for some rebels to be "bribed" onto the loyalist side)

His first stop was the Court's summer residence- Kyoto Palace. This ornate palace housed valuable antiquities, yet was guarded by the Kingdom's finest. The forces of the Golden Kingdom gathered all available forces in the area in order to combat their mysterious opponent....

Map: Kyoto Palace
Factions: Kerghit Khanate Vs. Kingdom of Nords
Special Settings: Gold starts at 2500

The dark tide swept south, yet was soon halted again. A massive stone fortress, named Helm's Deep, stood along the Kingdom's highway. It would have to fall in order for the rebels to continue their march on the capital.

Map: Helm's Deep
Factions: Kingdom of Nords Vs. Kingdom of Rhodoks
Special Settings: Round timer extended by 30 seconds

Finally, the Dark Prince had reached his goal. Astride a massive black warhorse, he gazed across the moat at the last bastion of the Kingdom- Gowe's Castle. If this castle fell, the Kingdom would never be the same...

Map: Gowe's Castle
Factions: Kingdom of Vaigers vs Sarranid Sultanate
Special Settings: If Gowe attends this event, then the attackers win by killing him. If he chooses instead to flee, then the seizing of his banner will suffice.

Flushed with success (or wrathful in defeat), the Dark Prince returns/retreats to his mountainous stronghold. Soon after retiring, however, he is awoken to the sounds of battle outside! What forces remained to the Golden Kingdom had rallied in a last-ditch effort to overthrow him! The field outside the castle ran red with the blood of both knights and peasants... this would be the final battle.

Map: Rock Fort
Factions: Kingdom of Swadia vs. Kingdom of Swadia
Special Settings: Gold starts at 2500, if the Rebel leader dies the round ends. GK is now attacking, rebels are defending, but this almost turns into a TDM match, so it will give some pleasure to the TDM regulars who may attend (And to all those out there who really like great lances and coursers)

// End Role Play.

I'd appreciate this being posted/transferred to the announcement page as soon as possible, for the maximum amount of people to be informed. I am also looking for volunteers for these positions, if you don't feel like playing/have bad ping.

- Admins to swap pubbers over to the attackers side, and watch for teamwounding during the event (2)
- Streamers/recorders to record this event, one from the perspective of the rebel leader, and the other from the perspective of the GK leader (2)
- Volunteer for Rebel Leader (And Backup, in case something happens) (1)
- Volunteer for GK Commander (and backup, in case somethin happens) (1)

If we have too many people sign up for either of the leader positions, I'll probably pick the one that can RP the best.

Invite your friends, and plan your weekends around this date. Feel free to post any thoughts/comments below.
