4 unlocked Pred crates to be handed out

Manhunt
There will be a ranged weapon, a machete and a stack of ammo hidden in ONE of the crates in the maze. The first player to find the crate has to gear up and kill everyone in the maze. There will also be blunt weapons hidden around the maze for other players to pick up.

If the weaponed killer is taken out by the others we will have to pause whilst we check who made the kill in the results and that person will be awarded the weapons/ammo to continue the kill spree.

1 unlocked crate to be given away.

Battle Royale (Free for all)
Pretty simple really we just let them have at each other, last man standing wins. Being that this is a filler anything goes, we throw any weapons we have left over into the maze for them to kill each other.

1 unlocked crate to be given away.

Deathkaraz here, this past week we have seen some changes in  our little town, we had a fantastic Purge night our community worked together to fight off people that came to take our town down! After that it seemed that everyone just really enjoy’s fighting each other in our town 🙂 great purge night to everyone that got to play!

This wipe we decided to do things a little different with our Palace, Expired went with a new layout and location, this layout has more rooms which will accommodate the new people we have joining our town daily. So far i am really enjoying this new layout, although it is taking some time to get use to it. Great Job to Expired for building us another great home! Well done!

Server rules changes July ’16

With the next wipe imminent, the rules have been updated. The rules are constantly being reviewed, primarily based on player feedback (after all you are the guys on the front lines) and adjusted, and this wipe is no exception.

General rules – exploits
The examples list has been updated with a few newer and more common exploits that we do not want to see in game. Some items have been removed from the list, but only to keep the list relatively short. The new examples of exploits that are disallowed are:
Placing multiple (i.e. overlapping) shelters on the same building slot. No more shelters inside shelters.
Placing items clipping through doors, gates or other structures to unfairly absorb damage. Having to blow up a shelter because there’s something inside the door is not cool.
Scrapping a wrecked vehicle or chopping down a tree without the appropriate tool or without damaging the tool. Sorry flashlights, it’s the crowbars’ time to shine again.
PvP Rules of Engagement
Interaction MUST identify the target: use the player’s name (“Stick ’em up, Player X!”), their clan name (“Death to clan XYZ!”), or some other attributes (“You hiding in the blue house!”). This is in addition to showing intent. When engaging a player in open-world PvP, the interaction has to show hostile intent and be directed at a specific player or group.
Added a short section called “A word on the KoS zone” section. The summary being, it’s a dangerous place, go there at your own risk.
Building
No-build zones have been extended into PV and Cranberry lakes. Check the maps for details. Those FPS-sapping mega-water-bases of dooooom have to be a little further away from the cities.

News

Hey all, it’s day 406 on the Stronghold and we had another wonderful weekend. This week we hosted the first of many Survival Saturday: Bastions Games events. These events will come in all forms and will have more of a “hunger games” feel to them. As always, if you have any ideas for events, members can post them HERE. This week’s event marked the 26th Survival Saturday event on the server. I want to take a moment to personally thank all our awesome event minions and moderators for their hard work on the server and events.

Now, some congratulations are in order. First, I would like to welcome Pixel to the event minion team. Second, I would like to announce that three new modlings have joined the event team: Hazard, Mimziez and Swizzle have stepped up to the challenges. So, please join me in congratulating them on their new positions. Without them, each Survival Saturday couldn’t happen.

We have also had some promotions. DeathKaraz, Faru, and Wraylas have moved up to Moderator rank after completing their modling training. While Kegan and ExpiredPass have stepped up to Admin. As always the server owners are Sp0r, Hanii, PhazePyre and Xaiin. The remaining staff are as follows, Carterski, d3vnull, Dunabar, Gopher, and Mongo.

On a sad note, Zimm has decided to step away for a while. I’m sure everyone here agrees that he will be deeply missed. Zimm has done so much for the server and we can’t imagine doing this without him. We wish him the best and hope he hurries back to us.

It’s looking to be that time again: a wipe is just around the corner. With that will come some changes to the rules. Stay tuned for more updates in the next few days.

Thank you for reading.
Your Community Moderator Team.

As always check us out on Twitch and Follow us on Twitter.
