  2. Hey! So I'll be the person to respond to this since I guess it's more appropriate given I'm more informed than my Divisional Staff simply because I'm more aware of what's going on in the community. To start off, Jailbreak was revived I believe in ~August 2020. A lot of people came back (including myself) and hadn't played JB in multiple years as it had been dead previously. Everyone was super stoked to see JB alive and well again and so we had like half a year where we had max pop almost every night. Multiple people (including myself) just started off as a normal player and grinded JB to the point to where we were considered for mod, then global mod, then staff, and so forth. While I thoroughly enjoy JB, I will acknowledge that I have burnt out to the extent that I have debated stepping down for about a month now. I have tried over the past month or so to get JB populated whenever I'm available in the evening and it seems that the drive and dedication to popping JB just isn't there anymore. This and some changes with how JB functions such as being able to purchase rep has really changed the mentality a lot of players had regarding JB. Using myself as an example, when JB first revived it seemed like the competition for gangs had redeveloped as they wiped all of the gang database and reset everyone. It turned into a year long competition to see which gang would rise to the top and win the "Gang war" that developed naturally in JB. After the rep shop came out there was no point in grinding JB or AFKing in the server, because think about it- you get like ~3 rep every 5 minutes for spectating in JB (I could be a little off- I haven't checked the actual number in a bit). Using that estimate you get around 36 rep a hour, and 864 rep a day. In the shop that equates to ~$1.30. So in a hour, you could get a dollar and thirty cents worth of rep. Why would you AFK grind when you can just go buy rep? The rep shop basically eliminated the eagerness to grind rep by AFKing in the server, and to get to my point, this effictively killed like 8-15 people spectating every day. That REALLY hurts our server population because when you look at the server list, it counts spectators in the total pop. So even at 4am, you would see our server with around 10 people on, which would entice people to join the server. Moving on from that point, another thing that I think changed my will to play would be how the JB environment felt after a year of playing. In the beginning there were TONS of old players who knew how to lead and were experienced in the "roleplay" aspect of JB. They were knowledgable about the rules and how to lead days or rebel well. This added a lot of spice and exciting moments into the gameplay of JB. Over time, what always happens is people grow out of specific things- in this case, Jailbreak. Over the year we lost a lot of great players who made (in my opinion) jailbreak more enjoyable. That was a major hit to our population because they were the main people leading days as well. A big contributor to our lack of server pop is the lack of people wanting to lead days in JB. I personally enjoy leading for about 2-3 hours, but then I like to relax on T and rebel. This is fine if you have 6 people who want to do that, but when you only have 1-2 it becomes more complicated, because then you have to rely on those two people to carry the CT side in the leading aspect, which burns them out way faster than when they can just lead for some time and then vibe on T. Another issue was our general lack of CT players. Jailbreak is enjoyable because the 1:2 ratio that's implemented. This however, is not enforced in terms of forcing an equal CT to T ratio. The 2:1 T to CT ratio is enforced, but not vice versa. What this means that while you can have 30 T's and only 15 CT's, you could also have 30 T's and like 8 CT's, which, is most of the time going to result in the CT side getting demolished, and people not wanting to play CT, and with no CT's you have no JB. To continue on, let me state that I am in no way defending the CS:GO Leadership right now. We are all burnt out, and we have a severe lack of drive (if any) to populate Jailbreak right now. I'm unsure what Gaming+ wants to do about this, as I've made it clear that we've felt that way for over 3 months now. With that being said I'm hoping that something will be worked out for JB sometime soon, because while I'm burnt out, I still want to see JB succeed because of how enjoyable it is and how many hours I've spent relaxing on it. Thats just my two-cents. If you have any questions or want me to elaborate further please ask. I love JB and I'm sad I'm this burnt out, but there's nothing I can do about it other than take a break.

  5. It’s kind of funny that this post happened today, because very recently there has been chatter internally that JB has been dead for to long with nothing in the works. Below I’ll kind of write up my thought process with what went well with the JB relaunch and why I think JB is struggling currently. For all intents and purposes JB is a RP Server in my eyes. With that said, it’s important that there are good guards/leads to facilitate good RP and that there are internal systems in place to help continue to facilitate conflict/interaction in the server. Other than the round to round interaction, the best facilitator of interaction in our JB server is gangs/gang identity. With the relaunch last year and gangs having been reset all the way to 0 there was a huge surge immediately to claim a gang and begin grinding so you could be the top gang on the server. For me personally being in Rebooglites at the time this was some of the best weeks/months personally I have ever played on the server. The amount of time and energy we put into grinding/idling for our spot on the top of the leaderboard against Bald Men was truly something to behold. We actually at one point had a spreadsheet tracking our rep vs. Bald Men’s to see how close they were to their next level compared to ours. Some other gangs that have since made a name for themselves followed behind us on the quest to be on the leaderboards. Along with the groups and gangs grinding rep for their gang, there were also individuals that wanted to cash in on this wave of rep grinding by collecting rep and selling it to gangs for cash or steam items. This was totally fine in my eyes as rep was only able to be collected at a fixed rate and rep was limited by those willing to sell it and how much rep could physically be collected by an individual before it could be sold (besides people who used a vpn to play on multiple accounts to double their idle rep per hour. Who were then banned btw lmao), but once the cash shop rolled in for rep, I feel like that’s the moment the element of gangs was essentially depleted. Why would I grind/idle for weeks when I could buy the rep with a few hours off of my paycheck? With the cash shop rep became completely meaningless in the matter of a few weeks. Gangs with more money than time started climbing the gang leaderboards and the people that had spent hours and hours for their gang felt obsolete, because they could never afford to keep up. With the grind/identity of gangs being wiped out what incentive was there to play JB? Well we were simply back to round to round interaction and the hope that the leads would stick around. Unfortunately, by burnout or other means people started to not get on. People also seem to forget that we had a couple bad weeks of database issues (no one at blame just acknowledging it) that I think did more damage to JB then people realize. This along with leadership not being around as much (no way to sugar coat this one, they've been kind of mia one way or another). JB has fallen into a rut. I do really want JB to come back and be great again and I want it to be as fun as it was when it got relaunched. We have awesome devs and a kickass map, but when there aren’t any players playing why would they do any dev work on the server? Spawn/I and others have a lot of work to do, but I can say publicly that I really want to work on getting our JB back on top. A lot of what I wrote is from personal experience and might not apply to everyone on why they feel like JB is dead, but this is why I feel it has really taken a hit in the last couple months.

  10. Over the past couple of days there has been conversation internally on what can be done to help get Jailbreak populated again. Something that I feel is important is not only getting information from Staff/Mods, but also reaching out to the community, as this is your server too and if there are things we can do better to get you to get on Jailbreak we will seriously consider them. With that said I wrote up a brief survey for people that play JB so I can get a general idea of why you aren't playing JB and what we could do to bring you back. If you could reach out to people you know on your friends list or to people that play JB that might not visit our forums often that this survey exists I would really appreciate it! https://forms.gle/o8jYJvvW3iRy9Hbp9

  17. Frankly it seems like people have moved on to other games, like New World It also seems staff, mods, and the dL are too busy or burnt out of playing CS:GO. Not calling them out, just stating matter of factly, I think they would agree with me on that Also I personally don't plan to play it anymore, it got stale. There was a steady shift in Jailbreak culture, where all of the little kids came in and were annoying. The good leads left. I felt like a stranger in the server, so I didn't go back. I'd rather play with my actual friends than play a server that really isn't fun. None of my friends play it either, so I've got no intention of trying to populate a server, especially when there is only 4 or 5 people in it, with people who I don't know or people who annoy me. Sorry if it's harsh, but it's the honest truth.

  31. Here's a few reasons I can think off the top of my head. There's pretty much zero reason to grind rep, therefore an even smaller reason to afk, which leads to less players (What Iron said). Why would i grind rep when i can just buy it for 10 bucks and get 10k? Along with rep problems, there is no reason to level up your gang, after level 23 or so the prices for rep are fucking insane, for an extremely small reward. Even if you do become top gang, someone can just buy rep to level their own gang above your own. There's been little to no events to help maintain population, i.e. there is a lack of re-playability with lack of fun and new leads. X-mas in July was a good event to help keep people playing in July. We don't need an event every week, but to have one once a month would be good to keep people playing on the server. Like SPlink said, there was a drastic change of the way JB was played while a bunch of (i know their kids but shit) annoying kids who aren't even old enough to have CS trying to lead while micspamming. If i have to mute someone more than 20 times in an hour for mic-spam you shouldn't be talking, which makes me as a mod not want to moderate, let alone play the server. I've heard absolutely nothing from staff as to plans to help revive JB, or really and CS gamemode and everyone has lost the will to play again. I want just as much as everyone else to join a 48/48 JB again, but if as a mod team we aren't communicating let alone playing, we all shouldn't be mods+. Of course i don't know really whats happening with leadership, but it seems like practically everyone in staff has IRL stuff keeping them occupied. But who knows, cus I sure as hell don't

  35. New World is coming out tomorrow across a bunch of different timezones, and a bunch of people in HG plan on playing it so this is just a quick post about launch and to make it easier for people to try to group and know what's going on So far it seems like the that server some people will be going on is Valhalla as Syndicate faction. The servers go live per region at 8am local to the region, so EU servers are available a few hours before NA East etc. https://www.newworld.com/en-us/news/articles/launch-details Post below if you plan on playing, seems like a game best played in a group, but MMO launches are always chaotic so good luck

  41. Greetings my friends from HG, I haven't played on HG servers in a long while, but I still have some clips from some older times that I found in some of my folders that date back to 2017-2018. The clip in question is a CSS Jailbreak revival clip that was made during a certain CSS Jailbreak repopulation event. For some reason unknown to me, I didn't upload the clip anywhere, so it remained on my HDD through the years. Below is the clip attached. I'm not sure which people in the clip are still in HG. Nonetheless, I hope you guys will enjoy some of this CSS JB memorabilia 243819277_cssjailbreak2.mp4

I was going to combine these 2 youtubers names and make my username "ToxicRaids" But my dad said that I should make my name ToxicTurd because he always called me Turd as my nickname. We kept the toxic part because we already liked it. ( I also have some friends call me Human as that used to be my Name for different games ) 2. When did you start following HellsGamers? I was playing a community surf server back in September of last year and this guy had mentioned something about Jailbreak community server, so I looked and Hellsgamers Jailbreak was the most populated one, I joined and ever since then Its been history 3. Favorite video games, shows, movies, etc? Gears of War, Cs:go, Unturned 4. Any cool facts we should know about you? I have 7 siblings technically ( 5 Half sisters ), ( 2 Step Siblings ) I am also the only boy in my family apart from my step brother 5. Any feedback or comments about HellsGamers?

  44. Jailbreak Bible In this Holy Book of Jailbreak, you will find all of the resources you need for the Jailbreak server. This forum post includes the rules, banned and common games, commands, and common vocabulary used in the server. We’ll update this Holy Book on a regular basis as needed. This list of rules encompasses most aspects of jailbreak. However, this is a rule list aimed at the *General* days of jailbreak. Any unclear order or heat of the moment situation is subject to the discretion of moderators, and the circumstances of that specific day in the server, and does not set any precedent. The goal of jailbreak is to have fun, not have a master list of 5,000 rules to sort through for any given situation. Jailbreak is most fun when some things are not taken as seriously. Try to have fun, and only reference these rules when it's necessary! (the important stuff is in orange ) Basic Rules: Specific Rules: Game Rules: Basic Commands: To use these commands in the console, prefix them with sm_ instead of !. To hide when you use a command in chat, replace ! with /. Dictionary: Here's some need-to-know JB words Map Locations: New to JB? Here's some map call-outs. SM_COLOREDNAME: Finally reach 10,000 rep?
