Hi Grekk

The forum is in need of some TLC and certain areas aren't working like the Paypal button and the shout box.

Anyway, please use your Paypay account and send your subs to paypal at thegrumpyoldgits dot co dot uk


Hope that helps,

DMB

@cold

Yes m8, the address you used is correct.  My understanding is that the money goes to Mike King who then passes it to Darren to pay for the servers.

There has been a shortfall in funds lately and one of our two servers has been mothballed due to lack of funds and lack of use.  If we don't all chuck in say £3 to £5 per month, then the last server will taken out of service and we will be left with none.  Only the forum will remain.

Valve are making it difficult for casual servers to survive.   They are supplying casual servers and the MM servers are drawing the old casual players into "Mission" based subscriptions.  The end of an era approaches  as more folks are subscribing to ESL and ESEA servers.

Hope this helps,

DMB

Sorry if I'm being a bit dim, but I don't really understand the casual server thing, would we have to pay to get our server on a special list held by Valve so that players who use "Find a Game" get directed there?

No, what we run is a community server.  You can get to us by clicking on Play, and then Browse Community Servers. Our servers do not belong to Valve but they are  licenced to run Valve  CSGO server software.  We rent the servers from a server provider and pay for them with our monthly subs.

We appear in the Master Server list in the Europe  region.  Valve also supply servers both for casual and matchmaking purposes.

As community servers, we are allowed to run add ons to the servers.  We run Metamod and Source Mod which allows us to control our servers.  We can appoint server admins and can kick and ban players as well as collecting a little money from our clan i.e. the Togs  

Hope this helps.

Ah right, so all the servers you get to via "Find a Game" are owned by Valve? I hadn't really thought about it, I imagined "Find a game" looked at community servers too.  Embarassed
No wonder players are dropping away from community servers.  Sad

@Sledge

Yes, community servers are falling off the perches quite quickly which is a shame because Valve built up a fan following  for all versions of Counter Strike over the years on the community servers.

The Community servers were a great place to learn to play and usually the admin and clan members would coach and bring on new players.

What we have now with Valve casual servers is a "kick him he's a noob" mentality which does not encourage players to keep playing.  After all we were all noobs once. You seem to have found us, joined us fitted in and seem to be enjoying yourself.  You have risen to the giddy heights of Tog ness.
 
You have only to pass the shaven donkey test with whipped cream......did I mention that before? Laughing

You couldn't have done all that on a Valve casual server.

My case rests m'lud Laughing
