We have decided to introduce a new rank to the roster known as Old School. We will be giving all the current Veteran Members prior to the purge Old School. Going forward Old school will be given to members who are ranked Veteran Member and have been in DEFY for at least two years. Old School is not a replacement for Veteran Member rather it is an extra rank obtained.
We are happy to announce that we have created a brand new playtime tracker which can be found in the Panel area, it will track players playtime across all our CS:GO servers. For quite some time we have had an admin only tracker, while it served us well it lacked some features. So when creating this new tracker we figured it would be a good idea to track everyone's playtime. You can view your total playtime by clicking here. We have plans to create a page that will display everyone's total playtime but for now you will only be able to see your own. We might reset the tracker at the end of the month as we are releasing it in beta. However playtime tracking will officially begin July 1, 2019.
All new members that apply must confirm whether or not they would like to stick with the username they registered on the forums or change it. After the choice is made you will be stuck with that username unless you purchase a name change from our shop. We are considering offering username changes in exchange for in-game credits as an alternative way to get a username change. We are also testing out a new feature that syncs your forum name with your in-game name. Every time you join our server you will remain with the same name even if you changed your steam name before connecting. In order to sync your forum name with your in-game name click here and sync it. Since we are making this change we would like to give all existing members the opportunity to request one free name change by June 30, 2019. You can still change your in-game name temporarily by changing your steam name however that will only last until the map changes. Once the map changes it will reset back to the name we have on record.
If a new player joins our server for the first time and he does not have a forum account his in-game name will remain as the first username he joined the server with. If someone joins with a name that violates our server rules an admin can rename them. When an admin uses the rename player command, they can specify any valid name however it will automatically attach Temp. So if an admin decided to rename me to John my name would become JohnTemp.
On June 26, 2019 we will be switching the forums to steam only login. If you have not yet linked your steam account to the forums Click Here. We have done this for a few reasons.
This should increase your forum accounts security especially if you have steam guard enabled. It is one less password you have to remember. All our users have steam therefore it is not necessary to have other login options.
If you are reading this after June 26, 2019 and have still not linked your forum account then create a new account by signing in with steam and submit an administrative request and we will merge your accounts which should give you access to your old forum account.
