CS:GO Drinking Game #4

Update 13.3 has now been released. Here are some of the highlights.
In this update there has been a lot of focus on community content created items, Trading Advertisements and player preferences.
In this updates, a new cross server mode has been added, this is designed specifically for people to use for advertising buying or selling of items.
The command is +trading, so the actual use in-game would be:
+trading Buying 2017 Christmas Cases for 2M
The reason we have added this is so players who are not interested in trade adverts can turn these off and regular global chat can be used for normal conversations. (See Player Preferences)
For now, we have put out advertisements telling players to use this system, in 10 days we will start adding a rule against using the wrong chat for the wrong purpose and to respect other players filtering decisions.
We've heard a lot of feedback from everyone and in this update, we have truly delivered.
In this update, there are preferences for:
- Blocking item gifting from all other players (Turn of receiving item gifts)
- Blocking money gifting from all other players (Turn off receiving money)
- Blocking all trade requests. This is useful for people who are not currently trading or just don't trade at all. The sender will be told that you have trade requests disabled.
- Rejection of all pallet/event gifts given out. This will not impact the initial logic of giving gifts out (e.g player count) but if you are to receive one, this option automatically rejects it.
- Make my web Inventory Private - This is a big request from a lot of people. This is a temporary option (Until CP2 is released) that will allow steam linked users to hide their inventory to everyone except themselves.
- Hide Trade Adverts - As specified above, this allows the user to hide trade adverts if they're not interested.
Community Created Content
Recently, we announced the general availability of the documentation for creating Weapon, Knife and Glove skins. The response we have had so far has been remarkable. With this update, I'd like to give a big thanks to the following content creators for creating some stunning looking knives: @TheSinkingSponge @Callum (Blazingstardude) @Screamoheart @Nice. @Chaotix and @Not Alfred
With this update we have now introduced Content Creator Coins if your submissions are accepted. There are Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.
The requirements are 1, 10 and 30 accepted skins respectively.
So you can find all the new knives here: https://warzone.gg/wiki/itemlist?category=7
But here are a preview of a few.
Today we are pleased to announce, you can now start creating your own skins and submitting them for future case releases.
In Update 13.2 we added the tools for new content creators to be able to test their skins in-game and since then, we have published an entire guide on skin creation that covers the following areas
- Exporting and Converting
- Publishing and Submission
To get started, head on over to the WarZone Help Center: https://confluence.warzone.gg/display/WHC/Content+Creation
This includes all the resources such as OBJ files, default textures, material paths and example VMT files needed to create and test skins.
Good luck to everyone who will be creating and submitting!

During the upcoming holidays, our staff is excluded from their activity requirements to spend some time outside WarZone. Activity will temporarily decrease from the 22nd of December until the 2nd of January, this may cause reports, appeals and applications to be delayed. After the 2nd of January everything will settle back to normal and your submissions will be handled at the current rate.
From everyone at WarZone Gaming, we wish you happy holidays and a great new year!
As of today the SurfDM & Gungame weapons's stats have been re-vamped and re-worked so that some guns aren't ridiculous to handle (Previously the AK-47 in SurfDM)
If the weapons prove to be better than their previous counterparts then I'll consider moving it to SH2 as well (As well as a few other changes for SH2 including it's map and it's 'pro status')
Let me know the feedback on these changes.
So, finally today at 10PM (GMT) the skin testing environment will be launching. a lot of improvements have been made since the initial announcement.
We have now introduced a skin screenshot facility, similar to the skin screenshot maps found in CS:GO, except in this case the screenshots automatically add in information which is relevant. See below for a preview
You will find this on the Server list under the name "Skin Testing Environment" on the website and on !swapme from 10PM BST.
We are hosting 4 events this weekend. You can find them below.
Gamenight - Attack of the Mimics: https://warzone.gg/gamenightinfo?id=20 - Do you have what it takes to survive?

I kinda discussed a little idea of a competition for Christmas to do with my favorite thing besides gaming, MUSIC.
so the idea of this competition is to add a song for each of the 12 days of Christmas. These songs can be absolutely anything you want. The way this shall be judged is that i shall be me and the admin team to rate each song out of 10 in thier opinions and an average shall be made. The highest average score shall be the winner. For each day, the artist and its title must be provided ideally for easy access. so in the form of:
day 1 - Darude - Sandstorm
day 2 - Big Shaq - Man's not hot
Post your lists below and get creative. This may be judged towards the 25th December, entries close on 23rd december 7 pm GMT and selected by 8 pm GMT on the 25th December. BUT WHAT CAN YOU WIN? i hear you guys ask. from discussions with Hula, Archangel and Zero the decided prize for this competition shall be an AK-47 Light of king
AK-47 Light of king - https://warzone.gg/viewitem?id=1092
Best of luck to all participants
Skin Testing Environment.
Firstly, I'd like to introduce the brand new Skin Testing environment.
But what is it, I hear you say?
The Skin Testing Environment allows you to pick any Weapon, Knife or glove skin and test them on that specific server.
See below for some screenshots.
Set in an Italian Market place, there are 3 dealers for Weapon Skins, Knife Skins and gloves.
Go up to any dealer and press your USE key
You can now browse every skin. This includes Store, Case only and exclusive items.
The map also features a shooting range so you can test drive any weapon with a skin
In this server your equipped skins are completely disregarded, you wont be able to use them in the server.
In the next major website update we intend to add a button to the Item Wiki which is simply "Inspect In-Game", you will then be launched in to this server and given the item you were viewing on the wiki page automatically.
The Skin Testing Environment will be launching sometime this week. Expected Wednesday 6th
As part of our on going Christmas events, it wouldn't be complete without some Christmas movies, would it?
The following movies will be played rather than the democratic voted movies throughout December.
Home Alone - 08/12: https://warzone.gg/movienightinfo?id=27
Elf - 15/12: https://warzone.gg/movienightinfo?id=28
The Polar Express: https://warzone.gg/movienightinfo?id=29
