    Act surprised.
    Hello, SGM community! It brings me great excitement to announce the second gamemode that we will be adding to our server roster: Deathrun! This has been in the works for a long time, and it makes me very happy to bring it to life today.

    What is Deathrun?
    Deathrun is a very simple gamemode, yet a ton of fun for everyone. There are two teams of people: Deaths and Runners. The runners have one goal: Get to the end of the obstacle course without dying. The deaths have an even better goal: Kill all of the runners, using traps in each section of the course, such as explosions, rotating blocks, giant sledgehammers, and more! The traps are map specific, and we will be sure to add in a bunch of cool and exciting maps for you all to enjoy!

    With a new server brings a whole bunch of new responsibility, which means that we will also be launching a new part of the forums specifically dedicated to it! In this section of the forums, we will be opening up suggestions by the community for new maps to be played on, and even models to be used in-game!

    Speaking of in-game models,

    What about the pointshop?
    At the moment, we are going to launch the server barebones, without any pointshop content. I have been working extremely hard on making it happen quicker, but there is so much to be done that it will take me additional work to make it the way I want it. For now, the pointshop will be blank, but you will still be gathering points by playing, so that when things start getting added to the shop, you'll be able to afford them! The points you store and obtain on our Deathrun server are different than our TTT server, meaning that everyone will start with 0 points. I will aim to bring the pointshop properly to life by September. Thank you for understanding!

    In the process of adding a new server, I realized that it would be very costly to have 8 total servers on our roster, so to lessen the cost and the worry, LP will be replaced by Deathrun. I am sorry to those that specifically joined our community solely to play LP, but the success of the server wasn't justifyable to keep it open.

    Also, the Golden AK, an upgrade that was available for purchase during the Anniversary only as well as the "Crowbar Draw Upgrade" will now be available on both Vanilla and EU Vanilla for use.

    Who will staff the new server?
    Since we are now treating Deathrun as its own separate server, we will not be expecting our current TTT staff to staff on Deathrun as well, since that's not fair. To compensate, we will be accepting applications as soon as possible for the new server, with more strict requirements. When the server launches, the only staff members will be myself, @Darktooth, and @Disruptionz, and we will hand pick a few others that we feel will be dedicated to staffing it themselves. We haven't really worked out a specific staff architecture yet, but we will be continuously working on that as the weeks progress.

    I am very excited to start a new chapter in our community, and I cannot wait to see what new faces I will get to see because of this expansion. Thank you to all who constantly support the servers! :)

    How do you even break rules on in a death run game? I've never played it.. I'm honestly curious, how much staffing does the server really need?
