It has been a while since we last had double credits on our servers, for a limited time we are bringing back double credits. Starting today May 10, 2019 playing on any of our CS:GO servers will earn you double credits for every 5 minutes of playtime. These credits can go towards our cosmetic shop (!shop) or raffles. Double credits will end on Sunday May 19, 2019, take advantage while you can as we don't do double credits often.
Members will earn 4 credits instead of 2 credits.
Bronze VIP will earn 8 credits instead of 4 credits.
Silver VIP and Gold VIP will earn 16 credits instead of 8 credits.
All official games that we have servers for will no longer have a club. Instead it will have its own forum section like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive which will be located on the main forums page under Official Games. Clubs going forward will be used for games that we do not have servers for but many members play that game and a discussion area to bring those members together would be useful.
Any member ranked Senior+ and is interested in creating a club for a specific game and are interested in leading can contact me for further details. If a club reaches 50+ members we may even add discord channels for that particular game. Please note that the requirements for creating a club or getting discord specific channels may change in the future.
We have moved many forum sections around and compressed some of the forums. We have done this to make browsing the forums more simple with less clutter. The old way was overwhelming especially for new members as we had so many different areas. Now with the changes made today all discussions for specific games fall under their respective game forum. So Suggestions, Map requests, rule changes, or anything related to CS:GO should be posted inside Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Any other posts that have something to do with an official game should be posted in their respective forum.
Why did we remove the suggestion forums and not create separate suggestion forums in each official game forum?
The suggestions forum has been removed because suggestions and ideas for each game will be posted within that specific game forum. We did not create a separate suggestion area in each game forum because the majority of posts will likely be ideas, suggestions, map requests, rule changes, etc. Suggestions and ideas for the forums or discord can be posted in General Discussion. So since the majority of posts would be suggestions and ideas it would be very redundant to create a specific suggestion area for each game.
We have enabled the ability for all members to tag their posts. When creating a post under tags click choose and then you can begin adding tags. Members can add a maximum of 5 tags per post.
We have removed the VIP forum as it is rarely used and at this point in time does not really serve a purpose. VIPs can communicate within the discord channel.
We may make some more minor changes going forward but these were the big changes.
Down vote will no longer give a negative reputation point. Posts may still be down voted, however it will not affect the posters reputation. Up votes, Thanks, and Like will add reputation to a forum user. Haha, Confused, and Sad reactions will not give or take away reputation. We have also recounted forum reputation so you may have lost or gained reputation.
We have had for some time now, rules regarding inappropriate behavior which aims to stop racism, harassment, discrimination, etc. Most players follow this rule but we have a few players who don’t, or think that it is okay to loophole the rules. Instead of saying certain words they say a variation or find other clever ways which are not clever at all since the context is obvious. The staff team in the past have been very lenient with this type of behavior. At the last staff meeting we have informed all staff that action is to be taken on this loophole behavior and inappropriate behavior in general.
We will not accept any excuse for inappropriate behavior. If you feel the urge to say something offensive/against the rules then do so in a private message/voice chat and only if the recipient is okay with those types of messages, it is not welcome in our public chats. Players that continue to loophole, get punished for it and still continue the same behavior will just likely lead to a community wide ban for consistent negativity and toxicity.
General Admins+ now have powers within discord. This means that more eyes are watching the chat. Inappropriate behavior/loopholes will also be enforced within discord if that was not obvious already. #nsfw may contain content which is explicit, racist, offensive, etc. Content posted in #nsfw that targets members is not allowed.
Forcing players to read the rules
As you probably already know we have added a new system on our csgo servers which forces all new players to read the server rules in game by clicking servers website found on the scoreboard. Otherwise if they fail to do so within the allowed time frame they get auto kicked. The initial release of this system had a small bug that caused some players to continuously get kicked but has since been patched. Sorry if that affected you.
Going forward we can use this system to notify players when rules are changed. The notification would likely not kick you but rather just notify you in-game. Small changes that we make to the rules will not result in us forcing players to re read the rules. Ensure you are always up to date with the rules by going to the rules page. Any changes will be posted in a green announcement box on the rules page notifying which parts were changed.
If you have not yet read the post on alt accounts be sure to read it.
On a final note we are always taking in the community's feedback. If you have any suggestions please post them in our suggestion area. https://defyclan.com/forum/5-suggestions/
Read the entire post as we will not accept excuses if caught. Since CS:GO went free many players have created alt accounts. While creating an alt account may seem harmless. Some players create their accounts with the intent to cheat or break server rules. We can block non prime accounts from playing on our servers but I feel that would be unfair to those who are free players and have no intent on cheating or breaking rules. After speaking with other admins we have decided that the best first step would be to add a new server rule against alt accounts with the punishment being a Permanent Ban on all accounts if caught using an alt account. There is absolutely no reason I can think of as to why any member or player should be on an alt account on our servers. If you are on an alt account, you are likely either cheating or on it to break server rules and ruin the fun for everyone else. So to conclude our first step was to add the new rule and make the community aware of the rule change.
The next step to combat this issue is to develop a plugin that will detect alt accounts and notify our admins in-game as well as log it. Don't think just because no admin is on that you wont get caught because it will log all detection's and I will be checking. In the future the plugin will likely auto ban once I know it is working 99.9%. If you have used an alt account in the past obviously you will not be perma banned for using it in the past. However going forward if caught you will be banned. So I recommend that you do not ever connect again to any of our servers with your alt account.
The new rule added is #18 under General Rules(http://defyclan.com/hub/rules/csgo-rules/).
