With a slight delay, I announce the sixth GameNight!
What is it about? Hats? Some weird games nobody ever heard of?
One thing is almost certain. It's free!
As always, next Saturday, 12.05. right after the meeting at 20:30 UTC. Be there!
Countdown

And we've got A Pile of Hats!
[​IMG]
Yes, it's Team Fortress 2
Free game on Steam, so go get it here
A Free 2 Play Shooter with different classes which also have their own personalities.
Also lots of hats. Why even?

Anyway, today after the meeting it's going to be times for some hats! Be there! (or not)

Server details:
EscapeRestart Game Night | TF2
Just find it in the server list.

Open till Monday!

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

Depending on the game it will be possible to come and go at any time!...

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.

Hello everyone! I'm planning on doing a gmod event in the coming weeks, because TTT has been down for a while and I'm sure some players want their GMOD fix. I decided to pick 3 gamemodes and make a poll and let the community decide on what event they want. I'll leave a brief description of the 3 below with links to their steam page.

The Floor is Lava!

Remember playing The Floor is Lava when you were a kid, jumping around and avoiding the floor? Well this gamemode recreates this perfectly, with a few twists! Push and shove people to their demise, and be the last one standing to win the round.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1099454290

Murder

A gamemode based around deception and murder, one person is a murderer, and the rest are innocents who must find out who is killing them off, and one innocent has a special weapon.. This is almost like a streamlined TTT

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=187073946&searchtext=

Battle Royale Plus

Who said you could escape the Battle Royale genre? Just have a fun time making it to the last survivor against the community, and it has a ton of cool features that I can't even begin to list here.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=917910639

I'll leave the poll up for a week, and once thats done I'l begin to work on the event server. Thank you all for your time!
Hello everyone,

It's recently come to our admin teams attention that during a forum breach at the end of 2015 (You can view the announcement about it here), that username/email lists were leaked from the Admin Control Panel on the forums. We take our users privacy seriously, and would like to stress that these lists do NOT include user passwords, which are not available at all from the ACP or anywhere else on the front-facing side of the forums. We knew in 2015 that the breach did not reach the backend of the forums, where all passwords are protected and hashed correctly. This was not a database breach, only a breach of the front end of our forums control panel.

After the breach in 2015, we upgraded our forums to include 2 Factor Authentication to improve our security. We'd like to take this moment to recommend users to take advantage of this extra security, both on our forums - and any other website that offers the service (email, other forums, etc.) You can go here to add it to your account on our forums: https://escaperestart.com/forum/account/two-step

How was the list obtained? Within the ACP is a feature to send email blasts to users. This tool can also be used to generate a list of email addresses, in the same format as was found to be leaked. Because of how Xenforo saved admin logs in the version we were using during the breach, the email list access was not logged. As was noted in the thread at the time, investigations of backend access showed no malicious access of our webserver.

It looks like this on our Admin CP

All in all, there is nothing to worry about, but we decided to act upon it quickly to make sure users no rumours or the likes are spread - and make sure we notify users because they have the right to know when...
Guess what time it is! GameNight time! This Saturday, 14.04, directly after the meeting at around 8:30PM UTC![Translator] You are free to come and go, it should be possible to also join later on!
[Countdown]
Game suggestions are still welcome!

IT HAS BEEN DECIDED!
We are playing Golf with Your Friends after the meeting today!
Be there, you probably will be, but be there! And have fun! (Also seriously be there, I just bought it)


Game Description:
If you have friends that is.
It’s a golf game, 16 players max and uh, it costs money. Definitely fun! Or I was told at least.
Yet again this was requested.(4GB)

The games were mostly randomly picked, so get voting!

Golf with your Friends
If you have friends that is.
It’s a golf game, 16 players max and uh, it costs money. Supposed to be pretty fun…
Yet again this was requested.(4GB)

Civilization V
Ready for some madness? This is going to take a fair bit amount of time to play, but if you are patient enough, it can be lots of fun! No limit to player amount… It does cost money though.(8GB)
If everyone wants to, mods can be played as well....​
