Hello Brawlers! As you know we just reset WarZ and our ban list. We wanted to release some minor updates during this period to hopefully make WarZ more enjoyable. Not everything in this list is final, and we'll be monitoring WarZ over the next few weeks to see how things are going. Onto the change log!

  • Grapples are back! We decided to add grapples back to WarZ while still keeping ladders. Grapples now have a 80% chance of working but have a 5 second cooldown on them. This will allow grapples to still be in the game without being too OP
  • We have slightly nerfed the spawn rate of diamond armor and tier 4 guns both with and without the rare loot booster. We feel WarZ was most fun back when you had something to lose, back when you had something to fight for. This change will hopefully bring back the competitive feeling WarZ once had instead of everyone running around with full diamond 24/7. The spawn rates are subject to change overtime
  • PvP Loggers now show player skins and will soon show the armor and item the player had when they logged out. For example, if you log out in full diamond your PvP Logger will have full diamond on with your skin as well.
Hello,

We will be rebooting the network tonight around midnight CST in order to reset the ban/mute list. Shortly after, we will begin resetting WarZ. We are only expecting the network downtime to be 15 minutes and WarZ to be 30 minutes (if everything goes smoothly).


Thanks
Hello Brawlers,

We have a few announcements in this post. Make sure you read them all for all the information.

VPN Block Added

What is it?
For those who don't know, a VPN is a way to add a middleman between your internet and what you are connecting to. While they provide the advantage of privacy and security, it allows people to bypass their bans because it adds a layer of anonymity.

But...
We realize that a lot of our community uses VPNs in a non-malicious way to protect their IP addresses. Because of this, I would like to stress that we are going to work with you to figure out the best solution.

We already provide services such as TeamSpeak, a community Discord, and forums so you can safety communicate with players without using peer-to-peer programs like Skype. However, if you still need to use a VPN you may apply for a whitelist here.

Why?
The block will help limit the amount of players that are able to circumvent their bans. This is important because tracking down these players right now absorbs a lot of staff time.

The block is currently active (after a reboot later today).
Let us know if any problems arise.

Ban Wipe Impending

With the new VPN block being added, we have also decided to reset all bans. This includes mutes, tempbans, warnings, and the history of them happening. Before you freak out, let us explain our reasoning.

We have been using the same ban list for almost four years now. While many legitimate bans have been made, there are a lot of just old, invalid, or improper bans. Such as, we have hundreds of accounts permanently banned for advertising and thousands for being compromised.

A clean wipe will allow everyone to have a clean past and a (hopefully) clean future. It is concerning letting some players on, but it would be impossible to evaluate every player and their bans individually. It is the ultimate all or nothing final chance for players who have previously been banned.

Likewise, the system for getting re-banned after the wipe will remain the same as it is now. Nothing special with us looking up a player's old history and banning them according. Just follow the game rules to stay pardoned. Staff will have a private way to view your old history just in-case we need to, but we won't be enforcing off of that.

To the banned players: Abide the rules and remember not to play or be associated with cheaters and you will have a successful Brawl future.

To the unbanned players: If you are banned from the time of this post to June 23rd, we will be manually checking whether or not your ban should stay after the wipe. Just because we're wiping doesn't mean you can hack right now.

The ban wipe will happen on June 23rd 2017.

P.S. WarZ will also be resetting, info here.

Thanks,
Brawl Staff Team
Hello Brawlers,

We added a way for everyone to contribute together to achieve a community goal on our shop. When all players together contributed $50 to the goal, all boosters will be activated across the servers for 1 hour!

[​IMG]
Simply click "Contribute"
When you contribute to the goal the progress bar will rise. Every contribution gets a global message in-game. Upon the goal being reached, it will announce and all boosters will magically be active. The store goal will then reset for the opportunity to activate another.

Check it out on the shop here!
Thanks,
Brawl Staff Team

Featured Brawler
In this month's issue, we bring you someone from the lands of Raid. From one of our finest servers comes some of our finest players. Of those players, there is one who stands out. This guy is funny, chill, brilliant, and a truly great teammate. His helpfulness on the forums and in-game makes him a perfect candidate for this month's featured brawler! Who could this be? It's @Speedcell of course! Give this guy some congrats!

Trivia Question
Last month's question was: Which Brawler or Brawlers have the most forums trophies?
The answer was Eil, MattM1PVP and Wario. @Lekosa1 answered it first and earned a forums trophy!

This month's question is: Who is the creator of a CTF map set deep in space atop a golden spaceship?
The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.

Group Advertisement
This month's featured group consists of some of the friendliest players on Raid. These awesome people have also played a crucial role in building the grandest city on this map of Raid. Filled with skilled builders, great PvPers, and many more unique characters, this team is none other than Team Mel0n! Check out their team thread here.

Hello Brawlers,

We received a nice email from the big guys above (that only ever email us to discipline us):
Per this email, we will be removing the ability to purchase unban and unmute fees from the store. If you wish to purchase one, you have a few hours left.

Thanks,
Brawl Staff Team

Shoutout @Sn4x5 for the awesome screenshot!

Overview:

Hey there Brawlers! Are you all ready for another Wild West event?
That's right! This Sunday (May 21st), myself and 2 other staff members will be holding down the Poppy Cartel, defending it from all of you bandits! Now although there will only be 3 of us camping, don't think that taking us down will be a simple task, as we will be heavily geared out with full sets of Protection III, Unbreaking III diamond armor, sheriff guns, and a large arsenal of Potions to keep us alive!

Hidden in, and around the house we decide to hide in, there'll be chests full of drugs, and expensive gems!
Also, us drug smugglers will have some very valuable items on us if you manage to kill us, including gold, diamond armor, and powerful illegal weapons.
On top of all this, whoever manages to kill me, will receive a hefty 100,000 gold!

Oh, also for those of you that stick around until after the event, there will be a SUPER RARE set of chain armor, enchanted with protection I dropped!

Information:
  • There will only be one standoff (round) for this event. Once I and my drug smuggling associates are killed, the event will be over, and victors announced.
  • Only one player will be able to earn the 100,000 gold grand prize.
  • Logging out in the base prior to the event starting, will result in a disqualification and a jailing.
  • Sheriffs will not be allowed to participate in this event, however, for those of you that are sheriff and want to join in on the fun, I can temporarily remove your sheriff rank, and return it to you when the event is over.
Recap:

  • Where: wildwest.brawl.com
  • When: Sunday, May 21st, at 9 PM CET / 8 PM UTC / 3 PM EST / 12 PM PST
  • Location: Poppy Cartel (Nearest to Shaniko)

We hope to see you all there!

Hey there KitBrawlers!

As you all know, the KitBrawl Soup 1v1 Event was hosted last weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, with a very successful turnout. After many very close matches that often came down to the difference of one or two soups, we were left with the two people that would fight in the finals, @Carsonn and @YouAreBestBae (Removers).
Removers managed to edge out Carsonn, 2-0 in the best of 3 finale, but not by much. In the second fight Removers was left with no soup left after killing Carsonn!

[​IMG]

Regardless of the results though, I had a ton of fun playing and hosting this competition, and I really hope you all did too. Hopefully another tournament is something we can host in the near future if that's what you guys want.

Congratulations again to Removers. He and the people listed below will receive the following ranks for placing in the tournament!

1st: @YouAreBestBae (Removers) [1 Month Global Elite]
2nd: @Carsonn [1 Month Global MVP]
3rd: @Divisibility [1 Month Global VIP]
4th: @GoToBed [1 Month Global VIP]
5th: @UraniumHG [1 Week Global VIP]
6th: @MoistMayonnaise (PaidVapeUser) [1 Week Global VIP]
7th: @PingWoo [1 Week Global VIP]
8th: @NLSxM3RK [1 Week Global VIP]

However, some of the winners were very generous, and decided to pass the ranks they won on to others.

@LeUniCow Will receive a month of Global Elite, courtesy of Removers!
@Versions Will receive a month of Global VIP, courtesy of GoToBed!
@YouAreBestBae (Removers) Will receive a week of Global VIP, courtesy of UraniumHG!
@NLSxM3RK Will receive a (second) week of Global VIP, courtesy of PingWoo!

Thanks again to everyone who participated!
