    Some Changes Regarding Events
    Last week, we released a thread that included some changes to our future events, as there were some mistakes during the Summer Event. These mistakes ranged from server issues to bad planning by us. However, these mistakes have made us learn a lot about organising and hosting events, which means that future events will be organised and planned better. Furthermore, there were numerous complaints in the past that events are not frequent enough, so we have decided to host weekly events with prizes available on every Sunday. If you have any ideas for events that we could host on our gamemodes, let us know by replying to the thread we released last week!

    War - The Return of War Fun Sundays
    That's right, War Fun Sundays are back, but with a lot more 'fun' this time. Last Saturday, we released a thread listing some major changes to War Fun Sundays, including new and original maps specifically designed for WFS, all guns, perks and killstreaks unlocked for everyone, with random prizes being given out! Also, with our new events 'system', War Fun Sundays will be hosted on a random Sunday, as opposed to every Sunday. Check out the thread here for more information regarding the changes to WFS.

    The first War Fun Sunday with these new changes will be hosted on Sunday, 18th of August, at 3pm EST. More information about this event can be viewed here.

    CTF - Summer Tweaks Update 2019
    Last Saturday, we released a CTF update consisting of various tweaks and fixes, which some were made based off the Spring Update we released a few months ago. Some of these tweaks included changes to Pyro, Scout, Engineer, and Elf. Check out the thread here to view the full changelog and leave us any feedback you have regarding the update.

    CTF - Hide and Seek Event 2019
    Is that another event? Yes, it is! The Hide and Seek event returns on Saturday, 10th of August, at 3pm EST, as last year's event was a huge success. This time, there are a few changes to this event, such as multiple seekers as opposed to only one seeker and prizes being given out. As of right now, the player pool has been filled up, meaning that sign ups are currently closed. However, if there are any drop-outs, any extra sign ups are welcome. Check out the event thread here to see what else we have changed from last time and how to sign up.

    KitBrawl - Kill the King Event
    To start our new events 'system', we have decided to host a KitBrawl event as the first one on Sunday, 11th of August, at 2pm EST. This event is where there will be a 'king' (which will be played by a staff member) and the goal is for the other players to try and kill the king. However, this king will have very strong armor and weaponry, so be prepared. The first player to kill the king wins a prize! For more information regarding this event, check out the thread here.

    Raid - End of the Map Event (Map 5)
    Say goodbye to Map 5 on Raid as we will be hosting an End of the Map event on Saturday, 10th of August, at 1pm EST. As this event progresses, the map will shrink in size until only the spawn is accessible. Every player has one life - once you die, you will be sent to spawn, and placed in spectator mode. You will be able to chat, but you will not be able to leave spawn (to prevent helping). If you logout, you will automatically be eliminated. Joining Raid after the event has started, or after you've already died will automatically put you in spectator mode at spawn. Of course, there will be prizes being given out, which will be based on a points system, not final placing. Check out the event thread here for more information regarding the event.

    Raid - Reset (Map 6)
    Say hello to Map 6 on Raid as we will be resetting the world shortly after the End of the Map event on Saturday, 10th of August, at 3pm EST. This means that all bases, items, warps, teams and gold will be gone with the reset. With this reset, there will be a few changes based on discussions and feedback we have received from both players and staff members. Some of these changes include the return of the dragon spawn and restyled KOTH platforms that do not contain any water. All details about the reset can be viewed on this thread here.


    Featured Brawler
    This month's Featured Brawler is going to a Media Team member, who has helped us a lot by creating most of the new fancy styling in our store and other Brawl-related art. Check out the store that showcases some of his cool art! This month's Featured Brawler is @ExtremeEvoboost, congratulations!

    Trivia Question
    Last month's question was: how many bans does the admin team (Lord_Roke, Miskey, Eil and Yinscape) have combined?
    The answer is 11882. @iamdroone got the closest answer (10,350) and earned a forums trophy!

    This month's question is: how many bans does the SMod team (SoCool21, Nohox, Snail_5_, xxMineSheepxx, Versions, and Prooddyyy) have combined?
    The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.
