L4D2 & LAN Update

Happy Tuesday @everyone!

As voted for at the start of the month, we’ll be hosting another Left 4 Dead 2 event this Sunday! Aiming to run through some more Versus and Campaign playthroughs – Let’s see what teams of four might be able to beat Futz, Arty_Ziff, Darrigaz and Kruthal for the title of Best Survivors!

Today also marks 2 years (!!!) since the last LAN event we held. While it was our original intention to organise and host another LAN event in the Autumn half term of this year, the global pandemic has obviously prevented us from going ahead with those plans. Many LAN organisers that I’ve spoken with are expecting their events to be on hiatus at least until the second half of 2021, though of course it’s anyone’s guess at this point. It’s still our intention to organise a LAN, but only once it’s absolutely safe to do so.

In the absence of any IRL event this year, hopefully the online community events have allowed you to continue to meet new ‘faces’, and keep in touch with people. Since March we’ve hosted 23 community events, and will be continuing them for the foreseeable future.

We’ve still got a list of things that we’d like to do outside of a LAN, but time and real-world commitments might impact whether those come to fruition this year, or if they’ll end up waiting until 2021.

As always, feel free to shout at us with any feedback or ideas! Last time we asked, we got some fantastic points raised which have all had a really positive impact!

See you on Sunday for some Left 4 Dead 2!

L4D2 Last Stand

This evening marks the release of the Last Stand community update for Left 4 Dead 2 (18:00 BST), the first major update for L4D2 in years! Versus mode has been confirmed (apparently with some ‘special features’) and we’ll be hosting some Versus lobbies this Sunday in case anyone wants to take a trip down nostalgia lane! Join us from 8pm, :Left4Dead: maximum zombie thrashing!

Among Us

Seeing as last weekend saw us with a hugely succesful* Among Us session, we hope you’ll be around to repeat shenanigans this Sunday! Join us on Discord from 8pm!

* For any players who’s name doesn’t end in ‘utz’

August Events

Polly has spoken! And it looks like Minecraft and GMod are the flavours of this month!

As such, we’ll be hosting our very own Vanilla Minecraft server from 8pm this Sunday! Be sure to swing by if you already own Minecraft Java Edition and let’s punch some trees!

GWYF & New League!

Grab your clubs, the results are in!

We’ll be hosting a GGHQ Golf With Your Friends event this Sunday 26th July, from 8pm!

We’re excited to be trialling a points-based league system for certain GGHQ hosted events – This GWYF event will mark the first event in that league. Points will be awarded based on finishing position on a nominated round, and at the end of a season, we’ll tot up the points to mark our winner(s)!

See you on Sunday!

Wreckfest Event

Following the first GGHQ poll, we will be playing Wreckfest on 12th July 2020! Be sure to join in on the night for the event, and we’ll see you on the grid for some more ridiculous driving antics!

Terraria 1.4 Journey’s End Patch

May 16th marks the official release of the FINAL ever Terraria update, the aptly named ‘Journey’s End’.

To celebrate the occasion, we’ll be firing up a GGHQ Terraria server for you guys to play on! This will be a server that we fire up on a consistent schedule to ensure that all players get a fair whack at seeing all of the new content Terraria has to offer – Details of that schedule will be arranged to reflect the availability of the Terraria players 🙂

The first window into 1.4 will be on launch day – This coming Saturday! We’ll have the server updated the moment the patch is available, which currently, is rumoured to be 18:00 BST, but may change closer to the time!

GGHQ Gmod TTT Event

FULL DETAILS OF WORKSHOP COLLECTION WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON™

If your first thought is ‘what the hell is TTT’ well do we have some news for you!

Trouble in Terrorist town is a round based video game equivalent to some RP boardgames you might have played like ‘Werewolf’.At the start of a round, players are allocated a ‘role’. Dependant on your role, you have to carry out certain actions without letting on to the other players.

Traitors must kill all non traitors (except Jesters!)
Innocents must find out who the traitors are and kill them!
Detectives use their tools to help the innocents identify the traitors.
Jesters try and dupe innocents into killing them for a round win.
Phoenixes have the ability to resurrect themselves.
Survivalists have a small pool of weapons that they can buy from.

Mix in a few hundred other weapons/skins/behavioural mods, and TTT makes for one of the most ridiculous and side splitting game modes you can play on PC!Given that gameplay is best enjoyed for smaller pools of players, we may have to rotate some people in/out of rounds, but will determine this based on interest.
