Well, it's been a while since I've written an announcement for the group, and I've got a lot of things to cover. Without any further dawdling about, let's get to it.
Charity sponsorship: Blap Bash 2018
If you've been keeping up to date on the latest goings-on within the TF2 community, then you've probably already heard of the Blap Bash 2018[tiltify.com]
, the 2nd annual Blapature Co. Charity event for Child's Play, and how we're listed as a sponsor.
Well, it's true. We have some stuff lined up for the fine folks over at Blapature, including surny
, and many others (read: I'm too lazy to go actually look up who's participating this year. They're all listed on their Steam group page
, go check 'em out and maybe throw them some money, there's a shiny in-game badge if you do part with your hard-earned money.)
But what if you don't care about charity? What if you're only interested in stuff happening if there's something for you? Well, you're covered too. Mostly. We'll have some Red Sun exclusive items or so for joining our servers during the event.
(...We're still working some of the finer details out, and I'm out of people to blame on my "List of people to blame" list.)
Reworking our US servers
Not exactly the happiest topic in the world, but due to a downtick in people donating and generally overall everything being FUKKEN DEAD LMAO, we're looking at some sorta-large changes to the US side of things.
You can read more on the forum thread (and weigh in) here: https://forum.redsun.tf/threads/2738
The Summer Event, Jukebox rotations, etc.
And just to top everything off, since people keep whining about when the rotation is changing, we'll cover this first (at least in this section.)
If you've been keeping up to date with affairs within the community, you'll know that we've had a wrench or two thrown in some plans of ours, which has massively impacted some of our plans. We're doing our best right now to make an event to get people into the servers to enjoy what we have to offer (and what we'll have to offer soon, once it's finished.) so please just be patient and bear with us on this front. A rotation of 20 or so songs is very low on our priorities right now, but we'll get around to it once the more important stuff is out of the way.
And yes, we are working non-stop on what is going to be our "summer" event, although we are keeping a tight lid on the finer details. All I can tell you right now is that we're going with something tried and tested that we know people like, so we (and me) have some confidence in this event being a success.
As usual, you can contact me personally over Steam, Discord or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and enjoy your day/night/noon/apocalyptic doomsday.
