For a few months, FaceWAN has been testing out a Discord server, and we have finally finished setting up all the permissions! The server is now open to the public and you can join by going here: http://facewan.com/chat
For those that don't know what Discord is, it aims at replacing Skype, Teamspeak, Mumble, Ventrillo and offers the ability to join the chat from a web browser as well as the Desktop client and mobile apps! (More info at https://discordapp.com/)
You can link your Discord account with a FaceWAN Forum account to get some extra member-only features (and for admins - to get access to admin only features) in Discord like creating invite links and the Member tag. To link your Discord account to a forum account, just simply message FaceBot in Discord with the command !link for more information.
There will be an event tomorrow at 12:00 PM EST. It will be a Dust 2 and will be running standard competitive rules with overtime enabled, as usual. If you wish to sign up, please make sure that you will absolutely be able to actually participate in the event and proceed to the signup discussion. As always, Teamspeak is required, but a microphone is not.
This might be rescheduled to a different day if we do not have enough people signing up.
I figured I might as well use this since this section rarely gets used for anything anyways.
I'm starting up another event to get this group going again. This time it's just a simple competitive match on de_mirage. This event will happen at 1:00 PM EST(time will be converted to your time zone when you view the actual event.
Anyways, there isn't really anything special about this specific event. Rules are the same as usual: standard competitive with overtime enabled. Teamspeak is required as that is where team communication will take place. A microphone is not required though, but is HIGHLY recommended for your sake and the sake of your teammates.
18/7/14 Update - The event has been delayed to July 16th at 1:00 PM EST. Disregard the time mentioned in the announcement below. The links have been changed though, so feel free to use those.
After receiving some criticism from players, Espeon and I have decided to setup a Steam group specifically for events within this community. The Steam discussion feature will be used as a way to have people signup for events to make things easier for the event moderators and you guys, as you won't have to post on the forums to signup. The Steam group can be found here. It is not necessary to join the group in order to sign up for events, you can post in the event signup section without being a member of the group. In fact, you should only really join the group if you want frequent updates on new events, event updates, and results of events. Please be respectful when posting there or else you will be banned from the group discussion and the entire community.
With that said and done, I have decided to setup frequent CSGO matches on the competitive server, the first one we're having is on Dust2 and is happening 1:00 PM EST on July 19th. This is just meant to be a fun little event that anyone can signup for, much like last time. Teamspeak will be required like the last event. For the information page on the Steam group, go here. For signups, please go here.
For the most part, I will not be using the news section to be posting more event info, so keep an eye on both Steam groups for clues as to when events will happen and the server events section on this forum. Hope to see some of you guys signing up for the new event.
Disregard anything below, this event has been delayed to an unknown date. Keep an eye on the announcements for more information.
This event has reached the limit for signups, if you would like to reserve a slot in case someone leaves, you may do so on the thread linked below.
With the FaceWAN competitive server being launched today, I have decided to setup a competitive event for July 5th, 12:00 PM EST. This event accepts all skill groups of people within the FaceWAN community and after a while, it might expand to certain people outside of the community if we do not have enough players. The event itself is a 5v5 competitive match with teams assigned by me personally(I am doing my best to make sure teams are balanced). The game is best of three matches and the matches are best of 30 rounds. The first match takes place on de_inferno, the second match on de_mirage, and the third match on de_dust2.

Recently we found a really good deal with OVH on a dedicated server that matches the current price we pay, but offers much much more in terms of resources. Right now with Awknet, we only have a server with a Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM. OVH offers a server with a 6 core Xeon processor and 128GB of RAM for the same price. We have purchased the server from OVH and put up a few servers as a test, the results were very good; a stable connection and no drops. This new server now allows us to host servers for more games and put up more servers for current games!
I have moved all of the servers over to the OVH box and turned the servers on, so your favorites should update with the new IP in the next few days. Until everyone gets the new server IPs, there is a plugin on the old servers that will redirect you to the new servers if you join the old ones.
The servers are now located in Quebec; Canada on the East Coast, just outside of the US. Pings may vary from location, but we have seen overall better ping times from most places (even countries outside the US!).
Here is a list of the new server IP addresses:
FaceWAN Garry's Mod Build
(This server is not ready yet.)
FaceWAN CS:S Surf
FaceWAN CS:S Surf Deathmatch
FaceWAN CS:S Bhop
FaceWAN CS:S Gungame
FaceWAN CS:GO Surf
FaceWAN CS:GO Armsrace
That's right folks, we're finally setting up another event for the community. Here is a simple summary of what will be going on:
This contest is about showing off your creativity in Garry's Mod by building or posing. You will have two hours and thirty minutes on a server that we will have setup (do not worry about trolls or assholes, the server will have a whitelist or password). The thirty minutes will be there for you to plan your build and if necessary, spawn props that you will use. The two hours after will be just two hours of pure building or posing.
After the two hours are up, you will be stopped and two-four judges will judge your creation based on the aesthetics, how much you challenged yourself, and how experienced you are in Garry's Mod. Scores will be averaged and the user with the highest score from all judges will win. You will have access to all the important stuff for building, Wiremod, tools, props, and basic Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source content.
We strongly encourage people both experienced and inexperienced with Garry's Mod to sign up for this event. There are no restrictions on what you can build as long as you follow the rules.
This event is cancelled due to a lack of people signing up, sorry.
We have switched the forum software from vBulletin to Xenforo as it offers more features. An import of all forum data was done at noon on Saturday to a test install of Xenforo and all seemed well. All user data has been moved over as well as threads and posts. Let us know if you encounter any bugs.
I am here to announce that Trouble In Terrorist Town has been updated and is running again after a bit of downtime. During the downtime, I have been working on a complete redo of all the weapons which the biggest change is probably the fact that the M249 no longer exists. We still have insta-kill headshots and increased damage on guns because that made the game a bit harder.
I didn't add much onto the server this time around because I still needed to work on balances. Pretty much the only thing I added was the trip mine for traitors due to popular demand. The trip mine is pretty self-explanatory, you plant it, someone walks over it, and it explodes killing them. Be sure to warn your fellow traitors of trip mines you have planted so they don't walk over them. The trip mine was an addon found on the Steam Workshop.
I had to remove one map which is ttt_minecraft_skyislands. The reason for the removal of this map is because it created a MASSIVE drop in FPS and had several game breaking bugs as well. Most of you don't need to worry though; the normal ttt_minecraft_b5 map is still there which is much more popular and playable.
Now, finally, onto the things you should expect in the future. I am going to be releasing an update rather soon that will include a few new weapons to use. There is a slight chance you will also see a few new maps. The update should be released before Halloween and it will contain quite a few new things along with many changes to make sure the game is as balanced as possible.
You can connect to the server with the IP: 188.8.131.52:27018
FaceWAN is hosting an event during July at an unconfirmed day for now. It will be on the regular surf server with a max of 40 rounds in total. First it will be 20 rounds where Ts and CTs must fight eachother. Whichever team wins 11 rounds will move onto the next section.
The next section is when the losing team is kicked completely and the winning team is scrambled into both teams. Then they must play another 20 rounds with of course, 11 round wins will win the match. This time there is no next section, instead the MVP of the winning team will receive a prize. Everybody else on the winning team will receive an honorable mention and possibly prizes if they are donated to the pot.
