Greetings! This map has been forced to continue for much longer than it should have, for that I apologize. Unfortunately, I'm not here to drop the reset announcement, that's coming very soon. The purpose of this post is to announce the winners of season 3 as well as inform you of some stuff you should know. I know season 3 had a very encouraging start but was quickly seeming hopeless early on in the map, I appreciate those who stuck around and tried to make the best of it. I always said I intended for it to be a short map, and it should not have gone on for this long. The reality is I wanted a reset very early on in the month, but circumstances prevented me from doing so. With that said, I'd like to announce the Season 3 Winners: RED Xclusiv: 72,760 Yuri: 20,614 PurpleLegion: 5,923 BLUE LetsGoCrazy: 28,408 TheTownies: 18,037 Fable: 5,400 I would like the leaders of each of these factions to contact me personally on the forums to claim your winnings. If you are a co-leader, don't bother. Leaders only. Congratulations to the winners! Thanks again for playing this map. Upcoming Rules Changes Some of you may have noticed the new chat filters in-game that filters out some racial slurs and also stops you from saying things like kys. I added these filters because they are going to be part of the rules soon. The filters are there to stop you from making a mistake that will get you muted or banned. Bypassing these filters effectively demonstrates a strong intention to break our rules and will be met with a strong punishment. Frankly, Scub and I are tired of all the toxicity. You guys might say that Origin is not the same without all the toxicity, then fine. Origin has to change, because something is fundamentally wrong with the psychology of people who regularly immerse themselves in such hateful expressions and it's starting to take its toll on us as well. It completely kills our enthusiasm to work on the server or host events. People with toxic personalities are most likely going to get banned unless they reform into something more tolerable. There's a difference between being toxic and shit talk. Toxic community members are going to have to learn that difference fast or they will have no future on Origin. No More Rank Transfers After July 31st That's right. We won't be doing any more rank transfers after the 31st because it devalues the ranks and frankly adds a lot of unnecessary work on our part. You have until the 31st to make a rank transfer request. Please choose which server you want your ranks on and stick with it because after this month there won't be any more transfers. Yacobb Now that's out of the way... I want to take this space to inform you of some sad news. As some of you may already know, @Yacobb, a long-time admin and loved community member has resigned from his position. He came to me a few days ago indicating his intention to resign and did so gracefully and with respect. I've informed Yacobb that should he choose to return, he will always have a spot in our community's leadership. If you ever see him in-game or on the forums, please don't forget to thank him for all his contributions to our community. It would be a massive understatement to say Yacobb helped keep things running smoothly on Origin. I will try my best to keep up with his pace, but I fear I may not be nearly good enough Thanks again @Yacobb for all your hard work and dedication to this community.
