Its Friday and that means update day! I've been following the forums and listening to what you guys want so hopefully I caught all the things you guys wanted changing!34 comments | Write Comment
I also added a few extra surprises - This update sees "Nametag" items introduced which you can use to change the color of your name on the scoreboard + ingame to an animated color.
I have also added a new menu option when you press E on another player. You now have the option to challenge them to a 1v1 Fight and put a bet on who will win! Since I see lots of you making such challenges ingame I thought this would be an interesting thing to try.
There is also a multiplayer minesweeper game challenge added! The goal is to find the most mines you can - and the winner wins the bet, the same as in a 1v1 fight.

The first season for 2.1 has ended! As it was a short season there was no telling who was going to win! Points were juggled last minute but Whipper Snappers still ended up coming in first. Seduction had made it to second with Revelation coming in third.
Congratz to the Founder of Whipper Snappers: M3RCURY! Who now owns the only Giant Spider mount!
We've also decided that we're going to do a Paragon Leveling system, not a prestige! It will continue the XP curve and you will gain points for every level to put in an attribute of your choice. I personally think this will be a great addition to the end game and I know most of you agree!
Who will win next season?! I guess we'll have to wait and see!

The Tiering update is now live on the servers!
Sup guys! Today we have decided to update you guys on the patch that will be released this Friday! This will include a new Prestige / Paragon leveling system. You will be able to reset your level and put points into a certain attribute of your choice. We're hoping to improve the end game of the game mode a bit more with this update! We've also reverted to the old Adv Dupe due to some issues, sorry guys. I'm sure you guys will enjoy these changes though.89 comments | Write Comment
In addition to this I'd like to address the new rule changes, there are two largely talked about rules being added today. The first rule, 4.8 has been discussed a lot within the last few days and I personally do agree that the Police should not be able to build in the PD as the Police job is completely one sided! And the other: rule 8.4 just needed to be added for the new players.
Also! I'd like to announce some the new trial admins that have been brought on to the team! They've proved they're capable of administrating the servers. Give a big round of applause to JoneD, Mysterio, and Rolad! (Contact me on Steam or Teamspeak for your ranks) I'm positive they will do great.
edit: We've also brought Reluohs on to the Senior admin team! He's a great guy and has proved he's an excellent admin since he's received his position! Congratz buddy!!
Good luck and have fun guys!
As most of you have noticed, we have been silently patching the game the last few days to clear up bugs + issues that have arisen since release Thanks as usual to everyone who has fed back bugs and helped make this a rather smooth release!30 comments | Write Comment
Today, we are upgrading the Advanced Duplicator to the "Advanced Duplicator 2" which clears up a lot of issues from the old advdupe - and will fix annoying things like other people copying your base, and saves with custom materials not working.
This change should occur at 6AM GMT - but it will mean that all your existing Adv Dupe files will be lost! So this news post is here to explain why that happened. We hope you understand, and we are sure you will prefer the new adv dupe as it functions a lot smoother.
I'm happy to say that GangWars version 2.1 is now live on the servers!119 comments | Write Comment
Its been a fun ride over the last year of GangWars 2.0 and we developers have learned a lot about what players want to see in the game, and what they do not want. We really hope this patch delivers more of what you want, and we plan to keep this up for future updates!
I would like to thank everyone that has helped me organise this update - BloodThirsty & the Admin team have been invaluble in identifying key areas to work on. Cookie, for his lovely art. JoneD, who has produced our new tutorial video as well as being a generally helpful person, Everyone who has been on the test server this last week feeding back bugs, and ofcourse everyone who has supported us through buying credits! It couldn't happen without you guys!
