Let's Rebuild CG, Together

The past few months have been incredibly tough for Colosseum Gaming. I know this community is in a slump. Yes, it is dying, but I don’t want it to and hopefully you don’t either. I’ve known a lot of you since the day we started, and I haven’t been the best owner some of you wanted me to be. However, I don’t want to see this community which once was a thriving place for players to meet up to see the same fate as preceding communities have.
As Owner, I sincerely apologize for the lack of time and dedication asked from me to keep the community going. The way the community has begun to shape up is largely due to neglection and poor management skills. I largely hoped for the longest of time Spades would come back and step up to be the leader I knew I couldn’t be, but that moment’s long gone. While we both share the blame, we all know I could’ve done a better job all this time to make things work. It’s time to move on from what we once were to what we have now.
Today, I want to put an end to our dry period and start new things to liven the community once more. I will do my part to create many more events in our servers and other games, as well as do giveaways to bring in new people. I will be asking for those wanting to step up to help me set up weekly weekend/weekday events that will bring the community together.
I’m going to need your guys’ help. The past two years has been a huge roller-coaster, and we still have plenty of room to grow. Along with the Council, I will do my honest best to bring the community back onto its feet, but I ask for your help and support. Let’s make the community the image we all thought it was going to be when we first started, let’s rebuild.
 

CSGO TTT Is Back (soon)

It's been while since the server has been functional and populated and I am aware that you want the fun to return. I am glad to announce that (if all goes to plan) the server will be up and running in the next couple weeks. As this task is completely new to me I have asked a very good friend of mine to assist in the behind the scenes work. @Mo0k is someone i have know for a very long time and i have complete trust that both him and I can bring the server above what you knew it as before.
If you have any questions or suggestions on the server please contact me or @Mo0k.  
Thank you.

EdgeGamers Hellsgamers Prestige Gaming Renegade Army Colosseum Gaming  Tango WorldWide Serious Gmod Allied-Gaming Rules
Rules are subject to change.
EdgeGamers (eGO) Tournament Staff has the final word on all rules and interpretation issues.
These rules are intended to ensure a positive gaming experience for the EdgeGamers community through the facilitation of spirited competitive play, while retaining respect for fellow players. Where the "letter of the law" may be wrong, eGO Tournament Staff retains the right to uphold the "spirit of the law".
Rules - Short Version
A team will consist of up to nine players. If a team is not able to attend, they will lose by default. If a team is not able to complete a match, they will lose by default. No substitutes will be allowed once the match starts. Each team is allowed a single time out per match. Any disconnects during a round will be considered a death for that player. Matches will be played on the eGO CS:GO Event Server with eGO Tournament Staff to moderate. The tournament will be a double elimination setup. The first team to win 16 rounds will be the winner. Players with a previous VAC ban on any account within the past 365 days or have less than 25 hours recorded on CS:GO will not be allowed to enter. VAC bans received at any point during the tournament, regardless of the game, will be considered an automatic disqualification. Players will record demos of all their matches and be willing to submit them for review upon request. Cheating of any kind will result in the team's removal from this and possibly future tournaments. All eGO Rules apply.

The Community Council

This past week marked our 2nd year being together under Colosseum-Gaming. Now, the last few months we've slowed to a crawl due to many reasons, one of them being lack of official upper staff capable of helping out the servers and forums grow. @Headline and @Spades will continue to be inactive, so the time is now to implement our own Community Council.
Who is the Community Council?
The Community Council will consist of both the Owners and a group of dedicated members proven and willing to help lead the community onward.

The Community Council will have the following community access:
Access to all NFO server access, FTP and database information. Official admins on GameTracker and our CG Steam Group. Control the Donation app and the prices of donor items. Will confer and make official decisions that affect the entirety of the community. Launch of new servers and expansions to different games (where our donations go towards) Big Updates to the Forum. Community Blacklists and Unban Requests. Promotion of Developers, Server Managers and Forum Administrators. Complete control over the Forums, Discord, Teamspeak and the servers Our First Community Council Members includes so far (There'll be 7 Members in the End,  We've Already Contacted 2 Others):
@Han'na-Hiru @Scrinn @Philip @The Asian
What Will We Be Doing?
Our number one goal at the moment is to revitalize the community. That starts with more events, being more active and above all making it fun again.
Second, we'll work on bringing activity to Forums and to our Steam Group. More giveaways will be done and more interesting things to find on both platforms.
Lastly, the Community Council will essentially be replacing the current Owners and Global Administrators as to making decisions that better help the community. Because there'll be 7 members, it'll open up who has total access to the community and who can better improve our community.

CS:GO Jailbreak is Back in Business

I'm going to keep this short and sweet since Bested wants to make his own announcement, but Jailbreak is back open!
Many of you know the meme "LenHard's spaghetti code", but fear not, Jailbreak is bug-free! A complete re-haul of the server, including new Special Days, better Gang systems, Blackjack and Jackpot are just some of the many things that make this server pretty amazing!
@LenHard and @BesTeD are your Server Manager and Head Admin, formally. 
Let's get CG back on the right track, let's make Jailbreak the best there is!

Staff Changes to Hunger Games

Shining light on an important subject, dating back up to 5 months ago, the server is slowly crumbling. While it is the job of the Server Manager and Head Admin to make the server fun and engaging so that players remain on the server, both of them are unable to fulfill their duties at this time. As such, @HappyYiffer and @fuchs have consented to step down for the time being until they can make more time for Hunger Games.
In further news, all staff - Server Manager down to Moderators - are now demoted and have been stripped of their ranks in the server. If you would like to contest your position, please provide a link of your Game-tracker profile so that we may go over your activity this past month and decide whether your position is deserving.
It's still the beginning of the summer, and while there are other projects in turn, Hunger Games is a cornerstone of our community and we should be doing to bring it back to our rightful spot on top of all Hunger Games servers in the world. 
I will be talking with @Headline to discuss potential Server Managers fit enough to return Hunger Games back to glory.

Community Meeting 3/31

Our First Community Meeting of 2017 will Happen on March 31st @ 7:00 PST 
Headline will be hosting the meeting, and everyone is welcome to attend and ask him questions about the servers. We will also go over key items about the current state of the community and where / how we will be moving forward.
Server Managers & Head Admins are expected to bring their own agenda to the meeting so we can go over each server.
 
 

Colosseum-Gaming Discord Server

Many of you have already noticed, but Asian had asked me to make a Discord server for the community, so, with the help of @Scrinn I've put one together. Scrinn is still working out a plugin that will allow you to link your Discord and forum profiles, which will hopefully allow us to link ranks so Discord will automatically give them (until then Server Managers have the ability to give their staff members ranks, so if you need a rank, come to me or ask your SM).
My hope is that there shouldn't be a need for Discord-specific staff. With the number of staff members we've got in the community, it should be easy enough to watch out for messages that need deleted, etc. But of course this may change in the future.
Feel free to join us! https://discord.gg/zQbuyeD
