Greetings to all you mortal earthlings!
The world leaders of EPG figured it was about time for the first newspost of 2016 and who else is better suited for this task than Flake; former member, former leader, your lord and savior and veteran. "But Flake, you're not even an EPG member!" Yeah, uh, I'm just doing my part in this war, a'ight?!
So without much further ado, let's get on with it.
As is tradition, EPG is kicking off the new year with new recruits! The lucky fellas that have to fight for survival this time are:
Congratulations and good luck to all of you! The briefing and other details regarding this mission will be sent to you via PM.
With new freshmen entering the ranks, we are delighted to announce Joskaba has graciously passed his trial and may now call himself a Private First Class and a full
This also seems the perfect opportunity to reward our soldier for his hard work and valor. Salute to your new Level 3 Lieutenant:
Good luck and thank you for your loyalty and bravery, keep up the good work!
As most of you know by now, during the Christmas Revolts a couple of soldiers deserted including our Combatant Commander. In a search for a new clanwar manager an old familiar face showed up. From now on our forces will be lead by Rhino, the best of luck on the field of war!
Unfortunately there is also some sad news we have to share with you. Due to their inactivity and unavailability for battle we are sorry to announce the following members are kicked:
A few men have earned their stripes over a long period of time though. We are sorry to see these people go, but it's time for them to retire and become Veterans. EPG will always be your home and will always welcome you back with open arms.
Thank you all for your service and dedication, good luck in whatever you decide to do next. We hope to see you back one day!
I'm going to end this message with a formal and official warning to the following members:
On second thoughts, it might be better to end this post on something more positive, shall we?
Puma from the Department of Wonky & Silly Code Thingies has produced some fine new bobs & bits!
This mean PVP mode is now fixed: you can battle for the best stunts, the highest rank or simply flip! Also for all nerds out there, Puma has added a "maths mode", in which you have to solve a maths equation! The shop is upgraded as well, not only can you now buy custom animated vehicle plates (F7 / Shop #5), but you can also start destroying your opponents with rainbow-colored rockets (F7 / Shop #6)! Be honest, who doesn't love that?
On top of that, 'backtracking' is now a thing! Use 'R' to go back in time, but keep in mind there is a limit to how much you can track back! Pro tip: use backtracking to juke incoming rockets . You can change the backtrack bind in F7 / Prefs. Last but not least, a new way of playing funwars has been introduced! Level 3 admins can now easily start new funwars with pre-generated teams!
If you have any questions regarding these new scripts I will refer you to Puma (or Str!k3r, he loves your questions). Or feel free to ask them here, I'm sure they read this topic too.
This turned out rather long, but that's about it!
Can I still wish you a happy new year on the 16th? I'm doing it anyway, the best wishes to all of you and let's make this a year in which EPG rises again!
Also don't forget! Tonight, starting at 19:00 GMT+1 (CET), EPG will host a Quiz, a DD Funwar and a Shooter Funwar! Make sure to be there!
(seems this is the new way of signing off?)
