If you have any general questions, feel free to reply to this thread and we'll answer most if not all questions.
Often imitated but never equaled, the iconic MP5 is perhaps the most versatile and popular SMG in the world. This SD variant comes equipped with an integrated silencer and features higher movement speed at the cost of some damage and accuracy on the move.
The MP5-SD is currently available on Stronghold, Gungame and SurfDM.
Item creators can start making skins immediately, with full workbench support also available.
In a month's time we will be launching the 2018 Anniversary Update. We are of course looking for the community to submit skins.
There are going to be two cases in this update, A limited edition anniversary case and a regular case.
We are open for all skin submissions, however we are taking a few entries for the anniversary case.
For the anniversary case, your weapon should be WarZone based, e.g the logo, or spray painted etc. An example (A bad one) is the AWP | Overwatch Gaming - https://warzone.gg/wiki/viewitem?id=483
The deadline for skin submissions for both cases is Saturday 8th September. If you have any questions feel free to reply to this post and I'll do my best to answer any questions put forward.
As you already may know, WarZone is going to be celebrating it's second birthday. During this second year we have had massive growth within the community, lots of new members being introduced to WarZone. We welcome everyone that has only recently joined us and thank you very much for giving the support and feedback to make the community much, much better. We will be giving away more items than ever along with hundreds of cases over this 2 day period.
I have a few things I want to go over in this post, mainly what events will be happening during the weekend of celebrations. There will be another news post coming on the day of the birthday, you'll just have to wait and see what will be included in that
Game Nights & Massive Giveaways
During both days on the 15th of the 16th of September, we will be running massive giveaways during game nights. The basic premise of it will look like this: we will play a few different servers, each server will take 20 minutes. There may be specific goals on each game mode, for example on Stronghold the top 5 people on the server will win prizes. It may be a specific goal or it may just be join a server and possibly win prizes.
All game modes, what time it will be happening and prizes will be announced 1 week before event is taking place. This is subject to change as somebody organizes it, but that's what it may look like.
Being active in Discord this weekend will come rewarded too. I would advise you to get the @Announcement Subscriber role in Discord using the command !role add news to learn of Discord competitions over the weekend.
There will be giveaways on the Steam group and the Social Media Giveaway will come with massive prizes this weekend.
The weekend of the 16th will be the best weekend of WarZone Radio so far. It's time to not leave your computer for the weekend, all of our presenters will be on air at some point during the weekend. During this weekend you can expect many skins to be given away, hundreds of cases to be given away along with some special prizes from us!

In just under 2 weeks, the annual summer meetup is starting, located in Utrecht, The Netherlands between 2nd and 7th of August.
While technically starting on the 2nd, from the 1st of August, you can follow the live coverage as UK and Ireland based members will meetup in the UK at the WarZone private bar, before setting off on the 2nd August at 3AM towards Mainland Europe.
Here is what you can expect.
As with the Winter Meetup we hosted in February, there will be live coverage.
If you are in Discord, you can see photos posted by meetup attendees live in the #summermeetup2018-live channel, which will become public at Midnight on the 1st of August.
You can also view more coverage by going to the meetup mini-website here: https://warzone.gg/utrecht2018
From here you can view the members attending, photos (From the Discord channel), Live stream and a live tracking map.
We will try to live stream as much as we can, keep an eye out on the announcements channel in Discord for when that happens.
Alternatively, you can subscribe to us on YouTube and get notified there as to when we go live. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtaKPO7s4BSUfeumcl0oFUA
On Saturday 4th of August, we will be doing a live radio show with all meetup attendees at the time live on air from our Hotel room.
The Show is aimed to be 4 hours long, however this may change depending on circumstances 😉
The Radio show will go live at 7PM (Local Time) / 6PM (UK Time) until 11PM (Local) / 10PM (UK)
We will have some great prizes to give away on this very special show.
It's worth noting that while the majority of the staff team are not attending this meetup, a few members of staff are (Including 90% of the management team) and this may lead to delays in support requests and/or admin activity.

Back in April we launched Discord rich presence for our Garry's Mod Servers, here:
However, recently the ability to update rich presence via HTTP was removed as it was never intended to be used, only there by accident and never officially supported.
Rich Presence is now optional to those who wish to install our client, which you can do by going here: https://downloads.warzone.gg/discord_rpc_http/Discord RPC over HTTP.msi
The installer will add the program running as a Windows Service and simply runs in the background. Your game client will then communicate with the service over HTTP and the service will then forward the rich presence requests to Discord over RPC.
This is not a very practical solution, but it allows us to keep the feature implemented for those who want to still use it.
The source code is open freely for anyone to modify to their liking, you can find this here: https://git.warzone.gg/5echo2/csharp_solutions/DiscordRPCHTTP
After months of work, I am pleased to announce that Store V2 has now been released. See below for the new features which have been added.
In the store update, we done a complete re-design from scratch
A big part of this update is the introduction of more currencies.
You can now pay in your local currency
We support all major European currencies along with the USD
Please note that exchange rates update every hour, so prices can go up and down depending on the live exchange rate.
You can now purchase any case only item you'd like via the brand new Item store. There is also a WZD (WarZone Dollars) and USD exchange rate. Same with the main store, prices can go slightly up or down depending on the exchange rate. The rate for WZD & USD is changed daily.
The item store also supports pattern floats, when you go to buy the item, you can select any pattern float that you desire.
Support More for less
In Store V2, we've added a separate donation system, you can donate from a little as $1/£1/€1
With it, you get a Bronze/Silver/Gold coin which are > 1, 20 and 30 $/£/€ respectively
Along with that you also get a reserved slot and a "Supporter" tag on the scoreboard
Buy in Bulk
We have also added in the standard Basket/Cart system, you can now add items to your cart/basket and pay in one chunk
We have finally added in a subscriptions system in the new store for the VIP packages, removing third party software to do this for us.
At the moment, subscriptions only support PayPal, however in a future store update we will be adding more.
Pay with your favorite payment method
Along with PayPal we support a lot more.
You can now pay with:
- Credit/Debit Card
- Bancontact (Belgium)
- Giropay (Germany)
- iDEAL (Netherlands)
- SOFORT (Various EU Countries)
- WarZone Wallet (More on that later!)
Designed with mobile in mind
Along with adding new payment methods, we wanted to go further.
We have added in support for mobile.
Don't worry about having to enter your credit card details on your phone either.
We now support Apple Pay, Google Pay and Android Pay
We've also re-done the category system.
You can now buy single cases along with keys, you can (It's cheaper) if you prefer still buy cases in bulks of 50
Similar to the Steam wallet, you can now add funds to your account using the same payment methods. The wallet will come in handy to buy multiple items without having to keep getting redirected to payment providers to authorize each transaction
I think that in this version of the store we've really improved the store and made it up to standards with most online retailers. We still have some more work to do.
We'd like to hear your feedback on the new version.
A note to all customers who paid using the existing store, you may notice your invoices and orders are missing, this is because the new store format completely different. You should see the existing invoices and orders come through within the next few days we convert them.
