    We have also given two of our golden skins a face lift. They're not going to be available for purchase during this event. This only applies to players who already own these skins.

    SHOTGUN & HUGE

    10/28 - 11/4
    Grimwon is back and his thirst for blood has increased. Do you think you have what it takes to defeat this powerful beast?

    If you are part of the lucky innocents that end up killing him, you will receive the GoreSplatter crowbar skin. Don't worry if you already own the GoreSplatter skin, you get 1,000 points instead!

    We have added two new fun rounds!
    Initially these were going to be seasonal fun rounds but seeing how popular and fun they were while testing with the community, we have decided to make them a permanent addition.
    During the duration of the Halloween event these new fun rounds will be more likely to be selected than other rounds.


    Double Barrel Frenzy
    [​IMG]

    The Double Barrel Frenzy fun round features a rapid fire double barrel shotgun with infinite ammo and no need to reload.
    This is the weapon of ultimate destruction!

    Barrel Bash
    [​IMG]

    The Barrel Bash fun round features a Barrel Gun modified to shoot infinite barrels.
    Initially during testing we had it set to rapid fire, but this was changes because the player's barrels were deflected by their opponent's barrels, causing a situation like this:
    [​IMG]
    This would drag out the round so we ended up slowing down the rate of fire to something more balanced and it is almost as fun as the rapid fire ones.

    We hope you will enjoy these new fun rounds.
    [​IMG]
    We are adding the following maps only for the duration of the Halloween Event.
    There is a possibility a few of them might stick around at the conclusion of the event depending on their popularity.

    This map will be on Modded and Vanilla servers.

    The following maps will be added to the Vanilla rotation for the duration of the event.

    MINECRAFT CITY V4 DARK

    MINECRAFT MANOR
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    We are featuring a Halloween themed end round music playlist for the duration of this event.
    They will also be featured on the Vanilla servers.

    [​IMG]
    This long awaited feature is finally here!
    Your loadout is now saved to the server type so you no longer need to change it each time you hop from a modded server to a vanilla server and vice versa.
    Everyone's loadout will be reset at the start of the Halloween event in order to support this new feature.

    [​IMG]
    Bulk Cannon
    The bulk cannon will spawn alongside other weapons only for the following dates:
    10/30 - 10/31

    [​IMG]

    Make sure you try out this beauty while it is available!
    As a traitor, watch out for any innocents that wield this powerful weapon!

    Gauss Rifle
    The Gauss Rifle view model is being reverted to the original one.
    The difference was that it was a much bigger model and rightfully so.
    As the Gauss Rifle is in some cases a 1 hit kill weapon and has 2 shots, it balances out when most of your field of view is blocked.
    You have to be more aware of your surroundings before pulling it out.

    Player Models
    We have decided which player models are here to stay and which player models are being permanently removed.
    You will have a chance to sell these models before they're permanently removed from the PointShop.
    Make sure you sell them as soon as possible!

    The following player models are being re-enabled:
    Batman Beyond
    Captain America
    Green Lantern
    Harley Quinn
    Iron Man
    Lara Croft
    Master Chief
    Robocop

    The following player models are being removed:
    Gaige The Mechromancer
    Hanzo
    Lilith The Siren
    Lucio
    Meryl
    Miranda
    Quiet
    Raiden
    Skyrim Daedric Armor
    Triss Merigold
    Yennefer

    Yearly Ranks
    Since we aren't going to be shutting down, we are going to add the yearly ranks in the Store again.

    Future of SGM
    Some of you might be wondering what direction SGM is heading in.
    I wanted to create a big content update to make up for the lack of an anniversary event.
    However due to my spare time being very limited, I didn't have enough time to finish it for the Halloween Event.
    I'm now aiming for Christmas to have a sort of better-very-late-than-never anniversary event for 2019.
    However this is not guaranteed as my spare time is split between handling server infrastructure, server crashes and troubleshooting and finally creating content.
    I don't have a dedicated dev team and after the last run I am not sure I want to depend on one either.
    I have a specific vision and taste which has worked well for this community and I have found it is hard to find a similar vision in other developers.
    Moving forward this community will continue to run with that original vision in mind.
    As you can tell certain player models that I do not feel fit that vision are being removed.
    The silencer grenade and Hex shield were removed previously as well.
    Some of the jihad sounds will be removed in the future.
    Consequently we have more room in our content packs for new content.

    [​IMG]
    First and foremost I want to thank the community for sticking it through with us during a time where we made the decision to shut down.
    I want to thank you guys for being patient with the server issues and crashes.
    Lastly I want to thank everyone for all the suggestions and help with testing.

    Special thanks to all the staff for what they do on a daily basis.
    Thanks to @spooki and @Nathan776 for compiling a list of maps/songs for this update.
    @Peter I didn't forget your playlist, it will be in the next update. ;)

    Oh I almost forgot...
    Terrortrain will make a Halloween debut as well :)
