Just a general FYI

Hey all,

I will be slightly re-organizing the first two forums to make the organization cleaner and more structured. All the various forums will still be here, but more in a tiered structure. This is going to happen this week, so if it looks different, just spend a moment looking at the main forum page and it should all make sense. Well, unless I go completely off my rocker and do crazy stuff...

Also, we have been getting lots of questions about the site name changing as a result of the Xbox One coming out, and obviously, the answer is yes, we will be changing our name and URL. Because our bills are primarily paid for by advertising on the site, we have to coordinate any name change with the money side of things, Google search results, all that good stuff. Webb will likely make a formal front-page announcement when all the details are finalized, so hang in there! We appreciate your patience while all that behind the scenes not-so-glamorous grunt work is done.

We are going to bring back a modified Signature of the Fortnight competition next month. More details are coming, along with a name change for it, but hopefully the artists on the site will have fun and the non-artistic types (cough me cough) can ooh and aah over their efforts.

Last, but not least, GSL 12.... It is a bit early to talk about it, but I like to keep you all in the loop as much as I can. We are going to do an 8-week competition starting on October 1st. Participants in the GSL will be contributing toward the cross-site competition with PS3T as well, where the total number of achievements unlocked will be compared to the total number of trophies unlocked by their THL participants. We will have more details as we get closer, but one thing I thought I would point out is that they are actively discussing how many more of their members participate in the THL compared to the GSL... I will leave you with that thought.

Cool, sounds good. GSL/THL has potential to be massive, you know how competitive us lot are (don't talk about duckfaces...)

I'm disappointed that the site competition ended up as GSL vs TSL, but it should still be good.

One thing to consider is that the last couple of GSLs have been staff/sub only. If you want more participants you might need to open it up this year.

This year we are probably going to have the requirement be that you qualify to be on the leaderboard, have been a member for at least one year, and have at least 50,000. At least, that is where I am initially leaning. I will have a thread up for discussion in the next few weeks.

Oh nice. I've never competed in one before, but I am interested in the concept. Can someone link me to an old GSL that happened so I can get an idea of what it entails? Thanks

I'm assuming that the standard caveat of people who have been subscribing/representing for more than x months are eligible regardless of any other restrictions will apply?

So then hopefully I'll be able to be in this one then. Of course i'll be on a more relaxed team though that isn't trying to win.

I should also probably join a team that isn't too serious about the competiton either. Willing to play tons of games but not so much that I've turned into a monster.

Can't. The forums get closed down once they're over. Nothing to view.

I agree! The past GSLs requirements made it so not many people could enter; I know I have not been eligible to enter any of them so far. Since past GSLs weren't open to many people, there wouldn't be as many people signing up for it in comparison to THL, which did not have as many requirements as the past GSLs did.

That sounds reasonable and should definitely allow more people to participate, but I suggest maybe adding a rule saying that people have participated in past GSLs can sign up for this one if they don't meet all of the requirements? That way, people like Spade can still sign up! =D

I agree, some of the regular faces along with some staff do not have 50k. It would be nice to make some exceptions.

As I've mention before, I've never been in a GSL before. If I remember correctly, gamers can choose their own teams? And wasn't there a thread for those who weren't on a team to be place on a team? I'm asking because I wouldn't have a team or know of anyone who would want me on their team.

If this remains true I lose one of the teammates I already picked.

Well, unless I go completely off my rocker and do crazy stuff...
I was kinda thinking this was needed.

Participants in the GSL will be contributing toward the cross-site competition with PS3T as well, where the total number of achievements unlocked will be compared to the total number of trophies unlocked by their THL participants. We will have more details as we get closer, but one thing I thought I would point out is that they are actively discussing how many more of their members participate in the THL compared to the GSL... I will leave you with that thought.
2 month GSL?!?! I need to recalculate my plan now.

That is correct you group into teams of four. There is always a thread for people who don't have teams yet to post in once the GSL forum appears, which will happen closer to the start of the competition.

not too happy about the PS3T vs. x360a being the GSL. i've never done one of them and i probably won't be doing, it's a bit too hardcore for me. i'm only just barely forcing myself to game now for the sub/staff comp. 2 things to note though, i'm shit at getting achievements, so it's no loss and i'll still be cheering x360a on. just need to find some pom-poms and a skimpy outfit...

and Yaaaaay for re-organization.

who'm i kidding, there's no 'find', of course my wardrobe is packed with skimpy outfits...
