Anniversary Gamenight?

OLD-GSA_Eagle_1000x1000 color fix

In one week, GSA will be officially turning 6 years old.

Pzk and I were recently discussing a bit of a gamenight on the 24th-26th, to celebrate the occasion.

Who’s up for a gamenight? We’ll probably play a bit of everything. Maybe some Pb2, but probably more of something else. We have lots of options; We’ll probably set up an arena game for our newest recruits in Space Engineers. Maybe some oGaT, or something new. Or maybe some Cards Against Humanity GSA.

Who’s up for it? And, any ideas? Always open.

Everyone from the community is welcome to join us on Discord for celebrations!

I hope to see you all there~

Official return

A while back I declared myself officially inactive. While I’ve been back a while, I am now declaring myself active again. (This post is partially because I forgot to make this post.)

Anyways, pretty soon I’ll be working up some devious new plans. I’ll get back to you on that.

Gamenight Carnage report

Writing on behalf of the game night hosted by Jeep.

Alright. Game night is back!

Lets get straight to the report, shall we.

Gamenight’s return has been a success. We had a moderate crowd of players. Gamenight spanned 5 rounds.


Round 1

For round 1, the participants chose a quality Rail Wars map. Plenty of chaos ensued.

2. LoneWolf: 156
3. TheRoyalZealot: 72
4. Plurus Porynm: 56
5. JayaRaya: 16

Round 2

2. PlurusPorynm: 4
3/4. JayaRaya: 2
3/4. Jonb7: 2

1. Jeepdino: 80
2. LoneWolf: 42
3. JayaRaya: 29

Round 4

3. Jonb7: 51
4. LoneWolf: 48

4. Jonb7: 21

Final

I must say, I’m very happy that game night has returned. After a few failures, Game Night is back, and soon to be going better than ever.

While this game night was a little brief, it went very well, all in all, and everyone had a great time.

FINAL SCORE:
1. Jeepdino: 475
2. LoneWolf: 246
3. JayaRaya: 145
4. SpiderSonic: 100

Total kills: 1,195

Jeep Dino has stolen the title of Champion from Axel, who has been our longest reigning champion of game night.


I’d like to thank all of our participants. It was a nice come back for the event. And of course, I’d like to thank Jeep for hosting, while I’ve still been experiencing technical issues. And of course, much love to the map makers, who truly make this game what it is.


~I hope to see you all again soon.

Game night schedule + New pages

Alright, first up, we now have two new pages added to the site, under Database.

Official GSA Competition

and

Hall of Champions

Check em’ out. They’re still new of course, and the leader boards aren’t quite filled out… Or balanced very well, yet. But, it’s best to get it started.


Now, as for the upcoming game nights.

On February 17th, we’ll be hosting a big game night, and partnering with Noune’s KTSC again. If you’re new, that means that for every player who joins us, 1$ will be donated to help fight lung cancer. Last time, we raised 129$, but I’m hoping we can do even better this Friday.

Our current gamenight schedule, also posted at the Official GSA Competition page:

February 17th: GSA Gamenight, cooperating with KTSC event.

March 3rd: GSA Gamenight.

March 10th: GSA Gamenight.

March 17th: GSA Gamenight.

March 24th: GSA Gamenight.

Ustopable-GP

Also, on the 17th, we’ll be testing out using playlists. Unless other maps are suggested, we’ll be holding quick votes on which map to play next for each round, from a pre-selected list. This should help to keep things moving quickly, which will solve issues of indecisiveness we’ve had previously.

The playlist for February 17th is as follows:

Round 1:
Doomwrath-Rapidfire
K2shape-tunnels
Jordanstrob2-Shotgun_War

Round 2:
Ashgabat-RailWars
Noir Line-Infection
Jonb7-DM2

Round 3:
Raffine-UrbanWar
Cahir-Half_Life
Reject-PoH

Round 4:
Baraka-Survive
Nyove-Rocket
Jonb7-DM1

Round 5:
TehSwordNinja-Realwar_Mp
Cahir-Half_Life
Neutral-i04

Round 6:
Silent Phoenix-OS
Ashgabat-RailWars
Ustopable-GP

Round 7:
ChemicalX-Sniper
Silent Phoenix-OS
Skound-Undead

If we go for more than 7 rounds, we’ll probably go through them again, placing new votes.

Of course, if anyone has maps to suggest, they’ll be added to the vote for the round.


Anyways, I hope to see you all there on the 17th.

Carnage report, February 3rd

Killionaire! Game over, victory!

Sorry this is a little late, but, here’s the other night’s carnage report.

Game night was another great success. We had many people come and go, and played seven rounds across over 5 hours, and raised over a hundred dollars for Kill to Stop Cancer.


Round 1

map_preview-php-neutral-i04
Neutral-i04

First up, we played Neutral’s Halo inspired map, Alpha  Halo. We played for a while, and were joined by an old GSA veteran, Flame180.

Round 1 score:
1. Axel: 108
2. Flame180: 80
3. Jonb7: 31
4. Teh Sword Ninja: 23

(Total: 263)

Round 2

map_preview-php-jordanstrob2-shotgun_war
Jordanstrob2-shotgun_war

Next, we played a more obscure, older map. Here, the open space and shotguns made for quite the slaughter, though we didn’t stay too long. Also, Tempus decided to join us for this round. although he got slightly rekt.

Round 2 score:
1. Axel: 65
2. XForce: 29
3. Jonb7: 19
4. Tempus: 17
(Total: 130)

Next up, we went for a classic…


Round 3

map_preview-phpj-siege
Jonb7-Siege1

For round three, we played the classic: Siege. This was a first for some of our players, and as always, it was epic madness. Unfortunately not many points were scored, due to the match being COOP, and the nature of this mode, but we had many players come and go, and the KTSC effort was certainly aided.

Truly this map will never get old. Although, discussions may have inspired new ideas…

Round 3 score:
1. Axel: 17
2. Shadow's End: 11
3. Jonb7: 6
4. Nighthawk: 5
(Total: 39)

And with the end of that round, we continued to another old favorite.


Round 4

map_preview-php-raffine-urbanwar
Raffine-UrbanWar

As always, this map was absolute carnage. Not much needs to be said, to those who have played this map with lots of people.

Round 4 score:
1. Axel: 240
2. Flame180: 185
3. Rinzler: 146
4. Gawwy: 131
5. Jonb7: 117
6. XForce79: 46
7. Leejay: 2
(Total: 867)

Next up, Gawwy wanted to test one of his newer maps with us.


Round 5

(No preview available.)

This map was still very WiP, so we didn’t stay too long, or see many players here. But, Gawwy gained insights on his map, gladly.

Round 5 score:
1. Axel: 22
2. Gawwy:10
3. Flame180: 7
3. Reborn Shauna: 7
4. JaXon2: 4
5. Jonb7: 3
(Total: 53)

We decided to play another timeless classic, next.


Round 6

map_preview-phpj-dm2
Jonb7-DM2

A map with many memories. We played 80 rounds of madness, here. Axel continued to hold his own on the battlefield, and stayed well ahead of the other contenders.

Round 6 score:
1. Axel: 94
2. Flame180: 54
3. Gawwy: 44
4. Jaxon: 41
5. XForce79: 24
6. Jonb7: 20
Shauna: 7
(Total: 284)

And so, we moved to the final round- At this point, we were very late into the night.


Round 7: Finale

Outside space.

(No preview available.)

Once again we held a final duel on this map, as the other players attempted to top Axel’s score. As always, it was an intense battle, but in the end, our champion held his lead.

Round 7 score:
1. Flame108: 205
2. Pzk: 139
3. Jonb7: 124
4. Shauna: 6
(Total: 474)

To conclude, game night went incredibly well. Not only did we all have lots of fun, but we did a little good for the community.

FINAL SCORE:
1. Axel: 546
2. Flame180: 531
3. Jonb7: 320
4. Gawwy: 185
5. Rinzler: 146

7. XForce79: 99
8. JaXon2: 45
9. Sword Ninja: 23
10. Universe12: 21
11. Tempus: 17
12. Shadow: 11
13. Shauna: 13
14. Night: 5

Thank you, and I hope to see you all next time~

Game night + Announcements + Monty Oum

Just a quick post here, to give everyone an update.

First of all, game night is of course next Friday. I’m happy to announce that we will be supporting Noune’s project, Kill to Stop Cancer. For every player who joins us, the NIR will donate 1$ to help fight lung cancer.


Also, as many of you have probably noticed, the GSA site has been updated a bit. Updates will continue for the next few days, and we hope to shape things up a little better. Have a look around, and see what’s new, but remember that things aren’t finished yet.

Some posts may be made soon regarding changes to policy. I’ll get back to you about those changes, hopefully soon.


February first.

Two years ago, today, marks the loss of the visionary, Monty Oum. Well known for his work with Rooster Teeth, particularly on Red vs Blue and RWBY, he was an inspiration to many, through his creativity, work ethics, and attitude.

Today, he wishes to inspire you, too. February first marks a day that everyone should be inspired- Go and begin working on something you’ve always hoped to create. Write the first page of your own story. This is the legacy he would have wanted to leave- To continue to inspire the great creativity in people.

1981-2015.

Rest well, and may you continue to inspire.


That’s all for now.

~I hope to see you all soon.
