Sorry for the late upload on this one but I was travelling Sunday and into Monday morning. Unfortunately it is a bot replay but very few de-syncs in it so we decided to accept it. Enjoy!

Hello,

Starting today, all new whitelist requests for KZTimerGlobal servers will follow a new process and set of requirements. These changes will help us keep track of the global server list as well as help prevent cheated records.

The new requirements are:
  • Must have no password
  • If VIP, must share a database and bots with publically joinable globally whitelisted server
  • Requests will now be completed on a google form providing:
    • Server IP (must be a static IP)
    • Description of Server
    • Steam ID of the Owner for Contact Purposes
  • Once whitelisted, demos (.rec files) MUST be available to the global team upon request by either:
    • Providing a FTP that global admins can access .rec files, or
    • Providing .zip files of the kz replay folder on request
  • Server owners must not be banned or have a previous ban from KZTimerGlobal

kzstats.com and kz-climb have been updated to show the new google form link:

We look forward to continuing to improve KZ in CSGO - we have major changes coming soon in 2017 so stay tuned!

Thank you,
KZTimerGlobal Team

Well guys it’s almost the end of “KZ in 2016, LUL” but I’m sure you’ll figure out how to adapt to the New Year. But with that I wanted to create an overview and highlight some important moments in KZ that happened during this past year.

The first thing that comes to my mind is the KZ Cup that had tremendous support within and outside of our little community. It was truly the pinnacle of CSGO KZ to date and gave us some truly memorable moments. Some amazing moments, quotes and of course shitty kz memes. Starting off with the most obvious moment of 400$ ladder from my bro @linus . The popularization of CSGOKZSUCKSBOYS as a copy pasta courtesy of @ivansky that got many of us temporarily banned from the kz-climb channel due to no meme policy. But in my opinion the thing that sticks in my head the most from that time was the fact that a good pal and KZ legend zza left kz in one of the best possible ways, at the top. Of course this isn’t the only thing that happened in the past year but to me and many other kzers it was a great event.

So onto the super sought-after Sachburger year-end awards!

Conclusion

And I’d just like to end this post giving a shout out to some community members that have stepped up recently. They have taken time out of their day to give back to the community (in no particular order): @Zach47 , @PlastiS , @Sikari , @kris , @DanZay , and of course everyone involved in the Global Team for doing their part in the kz community as this year draws to a close.

Hey guys, as many know I am heading back to Canada over the holidays so I will be on a hiatus from active duties. Throughout the year there have been many changes but I hope in these past few months where the map testing team and I took over, improved your experience.

Happy Holidays <3 and see ya in 2017 (kz in 2017.... LUL?)
