Here at SteamGamers, we're a family, everyone knows each other and if you don't, you'll be introduced real quick. Our community is build around the players - our aim is to have fun and not take things to seriously, but while still having some competitive edge here and there. You'll quickly find yourself at home when you game with us, whether you're goofing off with people on the servers, talking to them on the forums or chatting up in TeamSpeak. That's our key to success. At SteamGamers, everyone is welcome.
If you haven't been on our server before, or if no admin is around, you'll need to set yourself to member at our Enjin site: http://minecraft.steamgamers.com. Go to the store and buy Member, its free. You can also buy Subscriber and donor status's. Please note if you buy subscriber there, it will not transfer to the CS:GO servers.
I'd like to give some shout outs to all the people who worked tirelessly over the past few weeks to get this upgrade and relaunch done.
@BoM, @Pan32, @R3TROATTACK on all the coding and troubleshooting.
@SilentGuns on creating the spawn island area and helping with our Enjin store.
@Wooper on creating the Spawn platform, Admin and Subscriber shops and the promo video above.
@Zsoki and @Mandeemoo007 for helping us test a few things early.
The Game Reviews, will be user submitted game reviews.
The Game News is added by selected people, more details will come on this.
Newsletter is going to be similar to the game news, but will deal with SG related stuff
The Scrim Tourney Page will be all easily accessible information on the tournament.
Spike and I have spent the the last 2 hours tonight and about 12 hours last Sunday making some improvements to the forum. Three neat, new features have been added.
1. Steam Account Linking Plugin
You can now attach your forum account to your Steam account. Click the button on the top right of the forum to do this, and you can disable this feature for yourself at any time you wish. Linking your account will change your forum profile picture to the picture you have currently on Steam. If your picture is inappropriate, I'll warn you ahead of time not to link your account. Custom profile pictures that are uploaded to the forum will no longer show.
2. Steam Account Display Status
If someone's Steam account is linked to the forum, you can also view their Steam profile status in posts that they make. From that small box, you can add them to your friends list, and view their groups/friends/games, etc. See mine to the right as an example.
3. vB CMS
The homepage of the forum is a tad different now as well, since we changed the plugin used to display it. This change gives us more features to use in the future, one of which is currently in the works and will be announced when finished.
We hope you like the changes you see. There will be more to come in the future, so stay tuned!
With the opening of the casual server it has been asked can SG have a scrim tournament? Well we are starting to entertain that idea.
We want to start gathering data on people interested in participating. The thing we want to know the most obviously is who wants to participate, but we would like to know your competitive ranking. Take a screenshot of your CS:GO ranking in replying to this thread. We will use this information to devise a fair way to develop the teams.
We are currently hoping for 4-6 teams of 5 people each. If we get enough people we can do alternates. As far as format, we are wanting to do a round robin to seed for an elimination tournament to determine a winner. We are also looking to do prizes, any donations to a prize bin would be awesome. Overall we are hoping to have teams settled and start playing at the end of the month. We are looking at it lasting around 2 months total time.
@BlackEagle and myself are organizing this adventure so ask us for any questions. More information will come in the next few weeks.

We are happy to announce the latest plugin addition to our CS:GO servers, the [SG Raffle]!
What is this?
Every X amount of weeks Steamgamers will be running a CS:GO weapon skins raffle which will run exclusively in our CS:GO servers. Players will be rewarded for spending time in our CS:GO servers by being given a currency called 'Raffle Points' for every minute they spend in the server. This can then be used to purchase tickets into the raffle (providing that a raffle is open) for a chance to win a list of prizes which can be seen either on the forums or in the in-game plugin menu.
To find out more visit the [SG Raffle] section on the forums.
Please show your appreciation to @MPQC who has spent countless hours creating and testing this plugin for us!
Have fun and good luck to all those who enter the raffle!
