Swoobles News

Map record reset and surf competition

Many of you know surf hasn't been as active as I'd like it to be. I believe some of this is due to surf being boring for people and records that are quite unbeatable. Now hopefully to counter this, at the end of the month I will be resetting all map records and running a little surf competition to hopefully drive up numbers and get people to keep playing. The server has collecting records since its opening in 2015, and I think it's time for a refresh.

Jailbreak Mapping Contest (Ends Sep 16)

Good news everyone! Your favorite server is about to get some brand new maps, and you're invited to participate! Swoobles, along with 6 other communities, have pitched in to host a Jailbreak Mapping Contest via GameBanana (formerly CSBanana). If you're interested in creating a map for the competition, please read below.

Return of the Store!

The wait is finally over!

The long awaited return of the Swoobles Store is finally here for all to enjoy! You'll notice a nice new shiny "Store" button next to the forums button in the Swoobles header now.

New Server Rules

The server rules have been updated to create a more friendly environment for everybody to enjoy. Please make sure to read and follow them as admins will be enforcing them right away.

Mute/gag will return for all admin levels, and level 2 and 3 admins will be able to time punish the same as they can now (3 days and 7 days, respectively).

GCC Welcomes Swoobles!

Hi, my name is The Empathetic Peacemaker.

I'm here to discuss some big news about an organization our team has worked very hard to create and market over the past month and a half or so, along with some good news about us moving forward.

I used to be the Director of Community Engagement at HeLLsGamers. While there, I helped create and oversee the HGCE Branch of HG, which includes seven different committees.

The future is in good hands

It's that time of the year again for some big changes. You guys probably noticed there has been a ton of maintenance the last few days on the website and game servers, as well as the game servers moving to new IP addresses. Behind the scenes I was moving the web, database, and game servers to new machines. The reason for this is because I've decided to retire as owner from Swoobles. Lately I haven't had nearly as much time as I need to properly run the community and after so many years, day after day of running things, I think it's time for me to move on to something new in life. Fear not though, I will still be around and there are multiple new owners who are super qualified for the position.

Burdens beware!

The day of the burdensome player is over. Timed mutes and gags are back and the sm/sg/votesm plugin has been modified, so admins can now better deal with extremely toxic and repetitive spammers. The sm/sg/votesm plugin will now only mute or gag for the current map which means it behaves exactly like regular mute/gag but still lets each individual player make the final decision. The timed mute/gag plugin will allow a maximum of 15 days, which I think is plenty of time to let someone determine if they want to change their attitude or not. If someone is timed punished with 15 day durations over and over again, then they can be reported and have a longer or even permanent punishment applied. As an admins level increases so does the duration of their mutes/gags. Level 1 gets access to !votesm, level 2 gets access to a 3 day timed mute/gag, level 3 gets access to a 7 day timed mute/gag, and level 4 gets access to a 15 day timed mute/gag. I'm asking the admins to please punish according to the severity of the player in question without over punishing. I want the admins to remember they can still sm and sg the players they personally don't want to hear when nobody else is annoyed by said player (such as music when the majority still want to listen to it).

Store, donations, and Chicago

Most everyone knows the Swoobles store has been removed. If you didn't know.. now you do. The main reason the store was removed was because it took people forever to download all the server files and we lost a lot of potential players because of that. With the store removed all of the new players will now connect about 15 times faster than before. The download size went from around 300~ megabytes down to 20~ megabytes.

Removing the store also gave me a chance to rework our donation system since the old donation system was pretty much built with the store in mind. Your old store points and item's worth have been converted into coins which you can use to purchase donator status. Right now the only way to get new coins is to donate towards the servers. The cost of donator status is either 10 coins for a single server or a deal of 25 coins for every server. The donator status perks are server specific and vary between them. Check the perks out here if you haven't already.

Community vs community tournaments

One of the other CS:GO communities has reached out to Swoobles and multiple others to see if we would like to participate is community vs community matches. Their goal is to host events (majors, tournaments, etc..) with a single team representing each community. This reminds me of old community clan vs clan matches back in the day on older games which were quite fun then, and I'm sure will still be just as fun.

New website launched - Still under construction

The new Swoobles website has finally launched. You will notice the design has completely changed and there are now many more features throughout the site. Not all of the site features are live yet as I want to push things out one by one and tackle any bugs that will surely come up. The design itself is not completely finished either and the logo you see now is temporary. If you find any bugs or have any suggestions to what is already launched please let me know.
