HG Community Newsletter (March 2021)
While last month had plenty of basketball fans focused on March Madness, we had our own exciting evolutions in HeLLsGamers.
If you missed our totally real newsletter from yesterday, you can check it out here.
Our list of -hg- Recruits is slowly growing as these new faces joined us last month:
-hg- Joe Bidens Right Nut
-hg- Lover Of Milfs
-hg- Master Chief
And also congratulations to these new [HG] Members:
CS:S Division News
The divisional forums have been tidied up a bit. Stop by and have a peek! While you're there, let us know what CS:S servers you'd like to see in this topic.
The weather is slowly starting to heat up. Need to cool off? Hop on Iceworld to cool off and dominate some noobs! 220.127.116.11:27015
CS:S brought on a new Mod to help keep the servers enjoyable for everyone. Congratulations to DAPPERxDUCK on the promotion!
CS:GO Division News
Gamers beware! One of you is not who they say they are; at least not on the new TTT server that was released last month! Shoutout to our SM developers and CS:GO Staff for the great work!
If you've never played TTT before, all the information you need can be found here. Once you're familiar with the rules and how to play, give it a go yourself! 18.104.22.168:27015
New maps will be coming to both TTT and Jailbreak after they're tested. A new Jailbreak map is also in the works so keep an eye out.
With the new server launch, CS:GO needed some new Mods to help out. Congratulations to Bubbles, Hyperion, and Meowing Banana on becoming TTT Moderators!
Jailbreak has several new full Mods. Congratulations to Amish, Ashe, clearlynotjake, Hobo, Jasssono, Jimothy, Sno, and sqnch on the promotions!
Last but not least, CS:GO welcomes Panda Jankins back to their roster of Division Staff.
GMod Division News
In the early 2010s, a thrilling gamemode called PERP was part of our GMod division. It eventually faded away as players lost interest and other issues arose. PERP would never be seen again in HeLLsGamers...
...until now! PERP is back and better than ever! If you're unfamiliar with the rules, give them a read here before jumping in. When you're ready, you can join and start your journey! 22.214.171.124:27015
In addition to last month's new PERP Mods, four more were added in March. Congratulations to Broken, EtherealHope, HyperActive, and Lemonade on the promotions!
Rust Division News
Our Rust server continues to thrive. The weekly resets every Thursday bring in new players left and right. There's also some exciting new stuff coming soon!
You don't have to wait for the resets to get started yourself. Jump on in and prove you're the better survivor! 126.96.36.199:28015
Tired of waiting in queues to join? We now offer a VIP Skip Queue for $4.99/mo in the HG VIP Shop! It comes with several other perks as well so check it out.
Do you have an outstanding base to show off? EddieCam and Rust leadership are hosting a Base Showcase Contest throughout April. See the post for rules and prizes.
TF2 Division News
A new server is in the works behind the scenes. Keep an eye out for future news on that!
TF2 is well-known for its hats, and I tip my hat to the handful of members promoted last month.
First up, two new Mods were added to the lineup. Congratulations to Imperial Knight and Sqratattack on the promotions!
Next in line is Asian State Trooper who is the newest Division Staff! Job well done, and congratulations to you as well.
Last but certainly not least, congratulations to the man himself, Alex Thunderhunter, who was promoted to Division Leader!
Community Engagement News
We would like to welcome Ambassador Spock as the newest Ambassador! He will be our line of communication with Gaming Community Central (GCC).
Community Events also brought on two new people. Eric will be helping with events across all divisions and Vesta will be doing TF2 events.
Are you a fan of League of Legends? We have an upcoming 1v1 tournament on Friday, April 9 at 9pm EST! If you'd like to participate, go here and sign up.
Don't play League of Legends? We've got a movie night coming up Saturday, April 10 at 8pm EST! Read the calendar post to find more information.
We mentioned in January's newsletter that Senior Staff was being incorporated. That has been renamed and reworked and is now HGCE Mentor!
EddieCam and JarJarBinks have been moved to that role as they were previously Senior Staff. Mr. Robot has been newly promoted to Mentor for Community Events!
Would you like to give back to the community? By joining HGCE, you can host community events, manage our social medias, or help acquire partnerships. Apply today!
Development Community News
HGDC has a new addition to the Mapping team. Congratulations to Sno! The Sourcemod Dev team has a new face as well. Congratulations to FaZe!
As mentioned earlier, CS:GO launched their TTT server thanks in part to our Server Managers and Sourcemod Dev team!
Both of these teams are looking for new bodies; Server Managers are specifically looking for CS:GO SMs and require no experience as they'll help you learn. The Sourcemod Dev team is seeking two individuals who, preferably, have some previous experience.
If you're interested in any of the aforementioned teams, or any other HGDC team, take the initiative and submit your application!
Gaming Divisions News
New players are constantly joining servers hosted by HeLLsGamers. We'd like to turn those players -hg- Recruits and get them involved in the community.
If you ever find a player who is enjoying themselves and not causing problems, consider asking them if they'd like to join HG.
If they decline, that's fine. However, if they'd like to take you up on the offer, you can walk them through the process of joining (registering, linking Steam, and submitting recruit application).
Recruiting is a fairly simple process and it helps the community in so many ways. Without recruiting, most of the people you see here today wouldn't be in HeLLsGamers.
