THIS CONTEST IS NOW OVER!

Better late than never, eh?
First off, I'm sorry for starting this year's, or I should say this past year's Winter Giveaway 3 weeks late. I was away for 10 days and my laptop had to be sent for repairs (BSoD!!!), but enough about my exciting personal life. Yes, the Steam Winter sales are now over. It's sad, what am I going to spend all my money on now? I need more Early Access titles I've never heard of! It's OK though. We've got you covered once again with our amazing, exciting, glorious WINTER GIVEAWAY 2013! By now, you should know how it works... but for all of you who joined us in the past 5 months:

We will be giving away 9 months of Donor membership and a final Grand Mystery Prize!

To participate, please follow this link: http://hyperiongaming.org/index.php?topic=632.0 and make sure you read the giveaway rules carefully. The winners will be picked randomly from the giveaway thread starting on January 17th ending on January 26th for the Grand Prize. You may register for the giveaway at any time until January 25th at midnight Pacific Time.

BONUS: IF we get more than 50 participants by the end of the giveaway (January 25th), we'll add another Grand Mystery Prize for January 26th. Meaning two Grand Winners instead of one. For the Grand Mystery Prize, everybody who entered the giveaway will be eligible to win once again (even those who already won a prize). So make sure you spread the word to other players on the servers!

Do not post in this thead! The giveaway thread is here: http://hyperiongaming.org/index.php?topic=632.0
Good luck and happy new year! (late, again!)

A year and one month ago, I was writing my first Natural Selection 2 news post on this site. The reason? Ten years after the original mod for Half Life was released, it's completely remade sequel appeared on Steam for sale. We opened a server almost right away, and played a LOT of matches between the Kharaa and the Marines. I still think NS2 is the best multiplayer Aliens game. That server is still online: 66.151.138.182:27085

Unfortunately, NS2 requires a very fast processor and doesn't handle multi-cores very well (yet). This means performance has been pretty poor when more and more entities are spawned on the map, which decreases the server's tick rate dramatically, in turn lagging everyone playing.

The only option was to rent a separate server, dedicated to run Natural Selection 2. This means we had to increase our costs by $50, which is a lot. Fortunately, we've been receiving a lot of donations from you guys to cover our costs (this is reflected in our Donation Center).

Where can you find our new NS2 server?

[small](Name will most likely change at some point, but not the IP). Make sure to add it to your favorites![/small]

You should notice much better performance. We're still tweaking settings a little, but there should be a big difference between our old NS2 server and this one.

For our NS2 Community:
The plan is to create a donor membership similar to our TF2 Donor program. We haven't decided the actual benefits yet, but you'll receive reserved slot access (we're thinking 18 slots + 2 reserved) and unique in-game badges. We will let you know when the NS2 Donor program is ready to go. Keep an eye on our forums and we'll advertise it in-game as well. If you have any questions or suggestions, please post in the Natural Selection 2 boards: Suggestions.

For our TF2 Community:
Don't worry! We are still primarily a TF2 focused community! We are still considering adding additional TF2 servers (if needed), and while your donations covered the costs of this new serve...

Are you scared yet?!! ... No? Well, that's all I've got.
Yes, once again, Valve is back with Scream Fortress to celebrate Halloween with a redesigned map, the Witching Hour skeletons, deadly spells and +100 hats! All these new items come from the depths of the Steam workshop, where armies of flesh-eating zombies design new wearable horrors. Terrifying! ... Not at least a little bit spooked? No? Ah well, I give up.

Well, not completely. Here's what we have planned for this year's Scream Fortress!

Payload #2 will be renamed Halloween 24/7 (same IP!) and will play only Halloween maps. The new map this year is based on plr_hightower, renamed HellTower... [small]and it should keep the name all year long honestly[/small]. The server will be on a fixed mapcycle going through all previous event maps with HellTower every other map to make sure you wizard novices out there can earn all the new achievements and sweet sweet loot.

What about Payload #1, you say? Well, it too will be summoned to HellTower, just not too often. Payload #1 will stick to its regular "you vote for the next map" cycle, but HellTower has been added to the vote options every other map. Want to cast some spells in-between more serious games? Vote for HellTower!

TLDR: Play on the Halloween 24/7 server for non-stop Halloween madness. Play on Payload #1 for your regular programming with a side order of HellTower spellcasting frenzy.

Believe it or not, there's actual lore in TF2, and especially for Halloween events. I haven't really followed the details, BUT you can by following this link to the TF2 blog: http://www.teamfortress.com/bazbobarrabus/ It's something about old ghosts wanting to send each other to hell by pushing explosive carts.

Like last year, special gifts will spawn on HellTower. Each gift is spawned specifically for you an...
