PERP: The Return of the King

By Panda Jankins, in Server News, , 17 comments, 1562 views

After a long and highly hyped wait, the day is finally here, the day HeLLsGamers finally brings back our PERP server at 5 pm PST!

Today the PERP server will be re-releasing at 5 pm PST - 6 MST - 7 CST - 8 EST
At that time you can join the server through its IP: 185.141.204.10:27015
It's also recommended you subscribe to the workshop and install and mount CSS and HL2: Episode 2 before launch so you can get in quick with no errors!
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2357712053
Some of you may be asking, what is PERP?
PERP is a highly addictive game mode where you roleplay in a city as one of many jobs or a drug kingpin. You can also purchase several dozen properties or just as many cars! It's a game mode that has been enjoyed by many different types of people over many years so we'd love you to come back if you're an old school player or give it a try if you're new, and know that we'd be more then happy to help you get over the learning curve!
Make sure to join the HG GMOD Discord so you'll be able to get all the news as we continue the development of this server!

Minigames just launched this week, and starting tomorrow it's the first weekend HG has had minigames up in years. You can find the original announcement here:
https://hellsgamers.com/forums/topic/144707-csgo-minigames/
To help get things rolling were trying to start things off right, even with some bumps along the way people are already having fun as we continue to work on the server's inconvenient issues. Minigame's just like JB will never really be done so it's going to be always improving and maps will constantly be removed and added and even improved.

Each prize is Steam game(s) up to $10 USD, 1 prize per winner

This will be tracked via gameme, it will start with gameme based days and run from start of Friday through to the end of Sunday. I will attempt to count all players time across gameme but it would be LOVELY if you posted a link to your gameme profile for the server so it's easier for everyone, here's a link to MG's gameme http://hellsgamers.gameme.com/csgo11
