Hello, and welcome to this week's KZ-Climb.com Weekly Announcement thread! The aim of this weekly series is to provide the KZ community with relevant and useful information related to KZ.

Weekly News:
  • The KZ Global database was breached this week, and some records have been permanently lost. To prevent this from happening in the future, we have now implemented new security measures, as well as increased the frequency of our automated backups.
  • KZ-Climb.com will be absorbing and merging with KREEDZ EUROPE in the coming week. This means that records from both servers will be combined, and administrators from KREEDZ EUROPE will stay administrators in KZ-Climb.com.
  • versaceLORD, founder of climbLOUNGE, and I, founder of KZ-Climb.com, will be working together to create a new and high-quality HideNSeek server. This server will not be branded under KZ-Climb.com, but all KZ players are welcome. We have high hopes of revolutionizing the HnS scene with a implementation of the familiar KZTimer movement including prestrafing and the 380 speed cap. We also have a working anti-cheat system, something no other HnS server has. If this sounds interesting to you, send a message to either versaceLORD or me if you are interested in beta testing for the server.
  • KZ-Climb.com is currently recruiting additional staff members. There are many positions available, ranging from the typical Server Administrator to something unique like a Writer. This is your chance to help out the KZ community! All positions are still currently open.
Map Updates:
  • kz_minimountain_fix - This is an updated version of kz_minimountain that fixes most shortcuts. This fix was done to increase the competition of kz_minimountain instead of forcing players to grind the infamous tree shortcut.

That's all for now! Thanks for reading :)

Hello, welcome to the second KZ-Climb.com Weekly Update. The aim of this weekly series is to provide the KZ community with relevant and useful information related to KZ. I am now including notable records in the weekly updates. The latest global list on KZStats currently only lets me go to 3 days back, so some globals that are done earlier this week are not included. The goal is to eventually include all records that have been done in the past week, but I need to work on a solution for that.

Weekly News:
New Maps - 3 new maps have been updated to the global maplist
Map Updates:
  • kz_heatvents_mq has been updated and the shortcuts has been fixed. Global records are now enabled on that map.
  • kz_crash and kz_cargo has been updated to remove shortcuts. Times on those two maps have been reset.
Notable Records:
That's all for this week, thanks for reading! :)
