[​IMG]
HEY HEY VOTE ON THESE:

Terraria
A minecraft clone in 2D(who would even CONSIDER playing that?)
STEAM LINK (200MB)

Boardgame Online
If you enjoy suffering and bullying, this is certainly a game to play. It is probably worth mentioning that it is slightly... well, weird
It's in browser
GAME LINK

OpenLierox
It looks like worms... But it is in realtime. Based on Liero, it's a shoot-em-up. There are several possible configurations. It has to be downloaded and installed(more info to come)
GAME LINK (75MB)

Supreme Commander Forged Alliance
Because you won't get rid of these RTSs. It's regarded as a legendary RTS and still has active servers... that is if you make an account on Forged Alliance Forever and also install their launcher. Several PvP, PvE and FFA configurations are possible. (Tournaments could also be made with this)
It costs though. (Max 16 players)
STEAM LINK / FAF LINK (You need both) (4GB)

OpenSpades
It's Minecraft but with guns. A remake of the original Ace of Spades(before it got dumbed down)
You can build, shoot and destroy....​

Introduction
Hello! My name is Hexical (or Bailey!), and I'm a Senior in Highschool. I also plan on attending my local college once I graduate from Highschool this month! I live in the US, specifically in Michigan which is honestly a terrible state but what can you do.
What do you do for EscapeRestart?
I'm currently a Community Admin for EscapeRestart, and my niche for the job is Community Relations / Events. I plan / run events, help users plan our CDE's, and make sure our user base is getting along as well as possible, along with ensuring our staff our getting along, making progress, and doing what they need to do. I also help make decisions, and help with the decision making progress when there is staff discussion.

I also am Create Administrator, where I'm actually doing a large revamp of Create (you can read more about it here), and am planning on doing a lot of fun things with the "new" server! Along with making the new server, im continuously updating and trying to squash as many bugs as I can on our current server, which has been working well.
Why do you staff for EscapeRestart?
Long story short, I really really enjoy this community. I, like others, have been around fairly long, and have had a lot of good memories made on this community. I can remember being 12/13 and playing on EscapeRestart (Blocktopia) constantly, and making new friends and relationships. I want to be here to help other people experience what I did, to make sure our servers are still going on and providing the area that I love so much.

This community is important to me in my life, and I enjoy being here and having a helping hand in it. It's fun (albeit stressful at some points), I've made even more great memories, and just knowing that I have a hand in helping others feel what I used to feel years ago makes me happy....​

Hello everyone!

It was brought to our attention recently that some may be confused about what roles us admins have (especially CA's) and what we do, so we decided to start making weekly posts with introductions to our admins! These posts will have details about what they do for the community, their specific roles, and if they want to even some things like like to do to pass time / as a hobby.

We hope this will clear up some confusion for some, and help users know our admins better also. We want our community to know our Admin team well, and connect with them well also - we hope these weekly posts will help that connection.

Starting tomorrow, I will post my Introduction, and then every week we will go down the line (CA's -> Admins). We will most likely have a general set of questions, and then have the admin add anything else they want to include. If you have any questions about this, feel free to leave them below and I'll answer them as best as I can!

Thank you for reading! - The Administrator Team​

Important:
Since I am uncertain how well this is fairing, I would also like to ask for your opinion on the gamenights. This survey can also be done by people who didn't participate in the GameNights at all, just skip the questions until you come to the non-participant section.
I will rely on you guys being honest, so please only do the survey once and answer honestly

Sid Meier's Civilization V it is!
After the meeting on Saturday! Be sure to be there and if not have fun with these nukes Ghandi sends you.

Game Description:
Time to build up the madness! This game is going to take some time-investment but it's worth it!
... And also some actual investment as well, since it's not free. (8GB)
In case you don't want to play Vanilla, request a mod, simple as that. The rest can be clarified once everyone met up.
