      G'day @Iffy, welcome to the community mate! I'm glad you joined us on Thursday - hopefully you weren't too disturbed by the player antics See you on the battlefield!

      Now that the DLC has been out for a while, I'm happy to spin up a mission on our Zeus Events server if we have enough people interested.
    3. - // STRAYAGAMING ZEUS EVENTS // - Hey everyone, Over the past few months, we have made several changes to the type, frequency and way in which we run events. We have put together a detailed list of some of the changes and new initiatives that you may have noticed been implemented. ZEUS EVENTS | INFO: As we now have a dedicated server to host Zeus missions, we typically host missions three times a week on the following days; - Wednesdays 18:00 AEST - Fridays 18:00/19:00 AEST - Sundays 17:00 AEST These objective based 1-2 hour long missions are aimed at those looking for a more down to earth experience than the usual I&A grind, with a focus on team oriented play and combat proficiency ensuring that victory is secured. Of course, it wouldn’t be a classic Straya experience without a ton of laughs along the way, so be sure to come ready, eyes pre-rolled for some punny fun throughout the missions. ZEUS EVENTS | MODS: There is an entire new world of experience you’ll be missing out on if you haven’t dived into what one of the best modding communities in the world has to offer, and as such, we’ll be running these missions with some legendary mods installed. The full listing can be found on our steam collection, and features some near famous contributions such as the RHS mods, Lythium and Unsung. SG EVENTS DISCORD: If you didn’t catch the news when if was first released to the public, Strayagaming has a new dedicated Events Discord server. Get all the latest mission information and status updates to stay in the ‘what is happening when’ loop, and customise how much information you receive with an opt-in channel notification system. If you have any questions or suggestions for us regarding this new venture, that’ll be the place to do it. INTERESTED IN BEING A ZEUS?: If you're proficient and interested in Zeusing contact @Noskire @Joshua_ or @BigRed through discord and we'll help you to plan, organize and run your mission.

    8. StrayaGaming Monthly News Bulletin THE HEADLINES SERVER UPGRADES: Thanks to all of the recent donations, we have been able to upgrade our dedicated server hardware. They are now running on i7-7700k's and have considerable more RAM, we will be getting better performance and can now host more services per host. We encourage players to report any issues that have arisen since the server upgrades to the appropriate server staff. I&A TANOA/MALDEN UPDATE: The Invade & Annex Tanoa/Malden server is now running a new version of the I&A mission file, which includes the new role selection system Quik has been working on. When a player connects to the server, they now skip the traditional role selection screen and immediately spawn in as a standard rifleman. Players will then have the option to change roles, based on the new dynamic role systemwhich increases/decreases the number of each role based on the current server population. You can read more about the update in @Fitz's devblog here. ANNOUNCEMENTS SG EVENTS DISCORD: Over the past month our new Events Discord has been instrumental in running weekly events on both our I&A and Wasteland servers. We have also had the opportunity of hosting several community zeus events run by some of our talented I&A players. We encourage anyone who is looking for something a little different to our regular servers to jump on and have a look at some of our upcoming events. Anyone who is interested in running a Zeus event is welcome to contact me via the forums or discord to set up a mission MONTHLY DONATION PERKS GIVEAWAY: In our last monthly bulletin, we introduced a monthly donation perks giveaway that would be drawn each month with the news bulletin. We are happy to announce our first winner, @Dogofwar! Please contact me to have your month-long donation perks added to the server of your choosing. Be sure to enter the giveaway for next month by giving this post a big STELLARIS GIVEAWAY: @.Scorpion is currently running a Stellaris giveaway! The giveaway closes on the 10th of May. Be sure to enter the giveaway here. THE THEATRE OF WAR- COMMUNITY ZEUS: The Theatre of War is a new campaign of Zeus missions being run by @decibel_spl based on jungle warfare with a threat of a global takeover by China after becoming a superpower. The first mission - named Operation Curtain's Draw - gave us intelligence that the Russians have been supplying CSAT forces with equipment and weaponry - this is assumed to be part of the Treaty of Good Neighbourliness and Friendly Cooperation, enacted in 2001 (4 years earlier). The significance of CSAT's presence on the island of Tanoa has decreased thanks to the removal of Zheng, but unrest is still reported. Marines will be working alongside the Army to try and calm the citizens over the coming days. Be sure to keep an eye on this thread for the next mission briefing. ESCAPE NIGHTS: Starting in the near future, the Community Team will be running a weekly Escape Night on Fridays at 7PM. Escape The Island is an up-to 20-player coop gamemode where the players attempt to reach the borders of the map by any means possible to escape. Along the way the way they have to survive onslaughts of infantry, armed vehicles, artillery, helicopters and attack aircraft trying to stop their attempts to get off the island. A post will be made shortly with further specifics and a start date. MEDIA OF THE MONTH This month's Media of the Month is @bouda118's 4th Frag Montage. Great work!

      Question for ya... How would you propose the "points" be accumulated? Time spent inside the side mission circle? Kills? Completing specific mission tasks (securing cache etc)? Sounds like a good idea though

    24. STRAYAGAMING OPERATION BITTER REDEMPTION Soldiers, pay close attention to the following specifics of the Bitter Redemption operation. Any questions should be directed to your server commanders. Zone 1: Stavros Zone 2: Frini Zone 3: Rodopoli Airdrop Zone: Gravia and surrounding area MISSION BRIEF: In reference to the map above, please note the the location of the three capture zones. Each team will begin the event with one of these zones captured. Teams will spawn ~2km behind their starting zone. Your goal is to capture all of the 3 zones. To ensure the greatest possible level of fairness, the side each team starts on will be drawn using a randomiser program on the night. Teams should plan to start with any one of the three zones. A Team will win once they have captured all three of the zones. Should no team capture all the zones within an hour, a decision will be made among Zeus' whether to extend the time or award the team with the most kills as the victors. VEHICLES: The following vehicles are available to each team, and will respawn at base when destroyed: RESTRICTIONS: Please note the following restrictions pertaining to game mechanics: Please note the following items that have been removed: MISCELLANEOUS SPECIFICS: AIR-DROPS - An "Air-Drop" Zone has been marked on the map previously shown. During the event, the Zeus will drop in certain items/vehicles to provide an advantage for the team that dares to pursue it. TEAM SIZES - The intended size of this mission is 20v20v20. If there are not enough players on the night, we will reduce the numbers to 15v15v15. SUPPORTED MODS - Connor's Discord Rich Presence, JSRS and Blastcore have all been added, but are not required to join the server. EVENTS DISCORD - All teams are using the events discord to organise themselves and plan for the mission. If you're interested in participating, all servers still have places available at the time of this post.
    25. THE WINNERS Congratulations to TEAM WASTELAND for winning the Bitter Redemption mission. Congratulations to @Hazzy155 for the largest kill streak. Congratulations to @Yeet for the most strategic play. Thank you to all the players who participated and the staff who made this event possible. Keep your eye on the forums for more Community Events!
