Congratulations to our newest [HG] Members:
CS:S Division News
Gungame DM has finally returned! With sticky nades, throwing knives, and 48 levels of madness to play through, you'll surely have a fun time climbing to the top! Join up and have fun - 18.104.22.168:27015
Onto some not-so-happy news, CS:S made the difficult decision to remove Dust2 DM #1, Dust2 DM #2, and Office DM. Those servers were around for over a decade and will be missed.
Have some memories to share from those? We want to see them! Share your memories with us in the CS:S forums.
CS:GO Division News
The server with terrorists in a town causing trouble (aka TTT) has a big update coming. Any guesses on what's to come?
CS:GO welcomed some new Mods. Congratulations to Beanbop, Myes, and SwiftBadger on JB Trial Mod! But that's not all as Bert and Fruitman are now full JB Mods!
Last but certainly not least, we can't forget to congratulate Scorch on his Staff promotion!
