    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.
    Records This Week:
    That's all for now! Thanks for reading :)

    Have Fun making new maps or resizing all the old HnS maps when you're implementing prestrafe to HNS.
    Shame, i liked strafing my ass off for 265+ stats :(
    I thought the 'iWe' was some fancy abbreviation of some leet-ass security-thingy, till I read over the sentence a few times :D

    You'd have to contact 1Nut about that. He made it. It's not exactly top secret though :p.
