Today is the day that we will be closing TG. We've been struggling to come on top of our problems for such a long time that I've come to the verdict that is it no longer viable for us to keep going forward.
It's been nearly a decade since we started TG and during that time we've accomplished a lot. In fact I never expected us to become anywhere near as big and well established as we were. Unfortunately that also sets us such a high level of expectations that we're not able to meet them with our current setup.
Back in the days when TG was nothing we were able to start from small. We didn't have a fancy server, big development team nor the best
CW team that was out there. Instead we had a small team that was very well bonded and highly motivated to improve in every aspect. Step by step we were able to build the community stronger and better and I couldn't be more happy about the time we've had. However everything has to come to an end eventually.
I will not go in to details about what eventually brought us to an end as it would be enough to write a novel. Just to sum it up we've had too many setbacks in every field for the past few years.
Even though we didn't have the most glamorous ending I'm still happy thinking about all the experiences we've had together. I would like to thank everyone who was a part of TG's story, you are the ones who made this all happen.
Who knows, maybe we could do something in the future as a team again, but at this point I wouldn't have high hopes for that.
Hello Twisted Gamers,
Today we are going to announce small things regarding the development of the server and we are asking for your help.
We are currently implementing tasks/challenges and achievements.
*Note: Designs might get changed.
In the upcoming server we’ve decided to change things a bit: tasks will now work with leveling/ranking up and the rewards depend on the task's rank.
High ranked tasks could give you more diverse rewards.
The higher the rank is the better rewards you get!
*Note: This isn’t the final result, this is just an example.
As said before, we are asking for your help.
Twisted Gamers’ management and development teams came out with the initiative to spice up the competition in the upcoming server.
We’ve decided to make something different which is… “monthly challenge”
Challenge will be the same for everyone and you guys will have to compete versus each other to take on the spot in TOP 3.
How it will look like:
Each month the server will automatically generate a new challenge.
1st of July, 17:00 CEST – the server generates a new challenge
31st of July , 17:00 CEST – the server closes the challenge.
Rewards will be dealt by administration within maximum of one day.
Help that we need from you is to give us IDEAS about the challenges themselves and their cool names.
We will work in best of system:
As an example: Most of X
Most maps finished in first person.
Please write your ideas under this post or you can simply PM us on here at forum/Discord.
This is everything for today’s announcement.

Hello Twisted Gamers,
It has been a while since we have made an announcement about our current status and general information.
Trials that became full members:
Congratulations to everybody. Don't stop doing your work inside our team!
Our new members:
@pitterer is our great developer, now is the time to announce him joining Twisted Gamers. Even though he has been around for quite some time already, Pitterer gives us all of his time to push the development of the server into quality that Twisted Gamers deserves!
Personally I can't even get words in my mind on how to thank him for everything he is doing for us!
@cawfee has a lot of talent; he knows the C++ language, and tried to help us when we were in need. He has been learning Lua to help other developers with our server progress. Just an amazing guy, that's how I would describe him!
I’d like to welcome back our Web Developer @Jake
We have contacted him some time ago, to ask him if he would help us with our new website and forum. Jake is really a nice guy who has always been friendly and mature. We are sure that working with him will be our pleasure again!
We are very happy to have him back at the right place!

The truth about the 3.0 ALPHA and work with MisterQuestions:
Finally we are ready to tell you the truth about 3.0 ALPHA's launch, and our experience with MisterQuestions.
Let’s start from the beginning. Our first date of dissapointment was on 21/07/2017. We were already planning on launching our first 3.0 Beta at the end of July, or the beginning of August 2017.
This was the first situation of many, when most of our members lost their motivation and felt sad to see that their so well dreamed of server is not coming out as it was supposed to.
Now, it is time to move on in to the date of MisterQuestion’s 2nd try of the Twisted Gamers 3.0 Project.
Everything seemed to go well, progress was supposed to be running good, we had two working developers.
06/04/2018: Our Twisted Gamers 3.0 open BETA was supposed to be launched - but sadly MisterQuestions had problems at his university, so we had to postpone the launch.
07/04/2018: We were waiting until the last second for MisterQuestions to come online. Yet he came 30 minutes later than anticipated and the server was not ready to be launched.
After a few hours he notified us, that it was going to be an ALPHA server... We were as shocked as the rest of you. We thought that it was some kind of joke from his side, but sadly it wasn’t.
He launched 3.0 without any features - without a dashboard, statistics, etc.
We were sure that he would push his updates into GIT, so PieT could help him with fixing everything.
This was the worst thing that Twisted Gamers could have ever imagined - we lost our playerbase, we lost your trust, we lost all hope to rebuild our motivation and start working again.
But thanks to @pieT and @pitterer we have finally found our way into a better future for the Twisted Gamers community!
And it was going on like that day after day, week after week, until he left our team.
@pitterer and @pieT have been working on an entirely new project, a server made completely from scratch.
The progress has been going outstanding this time and we have some examples to show you what it will look like:
also here we’d like to get your feedback, 'cause you are the ones who are going to use it the most! ;)
Website in Progress:
Thanks to @pieT and @Jake, our new website is also in progress. This photo will show you a little sneak peek of what it will look like.
We hope that everything will be finished this time, so we can finally have a successful server again. With an awesome community as it used to be.
As soon as we are ready to launch our 'Beta Tests', we will open a new section on our forums called “Beta Tester Application”.
This time we have chosen to do 'Closed Beta Tests', to be sure we can provide a server with quality - for every single player.
Applications will be either 'Accepted' or 'Denied' within a maximum of two days by the Twisted Gamers Administration.
Remember! We won’t give any exact launch date this time, as we don’t need any more failures and I hope that by this announcement/information topic you will understand us and our situation - also our past and the future!
Once again we want to come back strong and this time without failures!
This is everything for today's announcement.
