Everything else is mostly bug fixes as reported.

If you didn't realize already, WarZone is now 2 years old. There has been iterations of WarZone before, the version you are on now is the latest one and the greatest one.
There's a few things I want to talk about here so lets start with a few messages from management.
Wow! 2 years! it has been a blast, over the past year WarZone has made many advancements, from the massive gamemode re-writes to now introducing WZNet, our brand-new match making system, the next year in WarZone, I’m even more excited for. Going forward from September the 15th, WarZone is going to continue to innovate in both Garry’s Mod and S&box (Once released).
Over the past year we’ve had our ups and our downs, however we can only move on from the bad and continue in to the future, of which is very bright for WarZone.
I hope everyone is excited as I am for the next year of WarZone.
Archangel (the man with many words)
These 2 years have gone by quickly, but in that time we've done more than any other version of WarZone. Feature-wise, the updates, community content, and new additions have gone far past what we did in Overwatch Gaming, but that's all for and by everyone who makes it a Community. Talking, working, playing, and even meeting some of you has made it the best run we've had yet.
Massive shoutout to the Staff team for helping keep the servers clean, the recently huge amount of content creators, and to the Manager team for keeping everything afloat. We've come a long way, and there's much more to come with gmod and S&box that will be well worth the wait. Happy anniversary, folks.
This second year of Warzone was great for me personally, as a staff member but also as someone’s who’s lucky enough to be a part of this community. A lot has happened in the past 12 months, mostly good stuff 😄 Unfortunately also some bad stuff happened, can’t really avoid that, but it’s best just to leave that behind and keep looking forward.
As a staff member I finally reached my goal this year by getting 2000 bans, hooray As most of you know, the moment I reached that goal I quit the staff team because Garry’s Mod didn’t really interest me anymore. Imagine my surprise when only a few days later I got offered to become Alfred’s partner in crime as a second senior manager. I never intended to leave the community itself and I felt like this could be the perfect way to still support and help Warzone and Zero.
The other absolute highlight of this second year was of course joining the 2018 summer meetup in Utrecht. I had a great time, finally met people I’ve known for years IRL and we had a real life cinema party ^^ I can’t wait to go to the summer meetup in Ipswich next year, I really want to visit the Warzone private bar and eat a full English breakfast with Zero while he’s lecturing me on why British food is better than wet drownie food.
Right so ye, how times changed. We started off with Call of Duty, went through hell and back with them servers and that community. It was great though. Years ago I never thought WarZone would get to the place it has, I've been to 3 meetups and with another few planned within the next year, it's going to be a good one. This community is great, it obviously has its up and downs like anything else but overall the community is in good shape.
I've haven't been an admin on WarZone in many years now. Garry's Mod just doesn't really interest me to that extent anymore and mainly in the old WarZones I was an admin for Call of Duty servers, but I'm hoping with S&Box coming any century now that will change. With S&Box we can do almost all of the things we want to do, all limitations hopefully will be gone out the door. There will still be lots of development going on then and personally I am hoping to expand WarZone Radio into a much bigger station than it currently is, not limited to WarZone only. If any of you play ETS2 you may know of the station called "truckers.fm", think along those lines.
ZeRo has used his infinite wisdom came up with a few stats for you to enjoy. Next anniversary I will do another post like this so it will be very interesting to see the change year to year.

In the next year we will add much more content to the servers and keep growing it as much as possible. We scheduling 2 meetups happening over the next year if anybody is interested. https://warzone.gg/events/meetups
As the Anniversary is now less than a week away, we'll be running some events in-game to celebrate. Most of these will be fun-round styled modifiers similar to the low-gravity we had on the closure of OWG, however alongside those we will be running a Stronghold Tournament. We initially planned to run a CS:GO Tournament, however due to the time taken for us to set it up and the dedication required from entrees, we decided this is the best and most accessible option for our players.
From this year onwards, we will be hosting Tournaments in each of our games, starting with Stronghold. This will be hosted on a separate server to better keep track of competing players and to enforce custom rules. We will be running the event as follows;
- The Standalone server will launch on Saturday and Sunday at 18:00-18:30 (BST). This will run alongside the main server
- The server will be open for 30 minutes, starting with a clean Scoreboard and no props placed
- On Saturday, the server will be accessible through the Server browser or through swapme. 9 players with the highest points score will be invited to the Server on Sunday, and will win $1,000,000 WZ Each
- The three players with the highest amount of kills on the Sunday will win prizes, with rewards incrementing upwards with 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place
Prizes are currently unconfirmed, however some will be as follows
- $25,000,000 WZ
- 100 Cases of your choice
- Any skin of your choice (Not including exclusive skins)
- One custom-designed Weapon, Glove, or Knife Skin of your choice
- Lifetime Platinum VIP
- $20,000,000 WZ
- 50 Cases of your choice
- Any skin of your choice (Not including exclusive skins)
- One custom-designed Weapon Skin of your choice
- Lifetime Gold VIP
- $15,000,000 WZ
- 25 Cases of your choice
- Any skin of your choice (Not including exclusive skins)
- Lifetime Silver VIP
1st/2nd/3rd: One unannounced prize
- $1,000,000 WZ
We will also be running a custom ruleset for the event, with set conditions;
- AWPs/RPGs will not be equippable
- Base building is banned (Props can still be used to climb roofs, etc)
- Teams are allowed, with up to 3 players. Keep in mind, winning places are per-person, however can be shared amongst a team
- A new ruleset will be introduced for the Sunday round, and will be announced to the contenders
Regular rules will also apply. If any rules are broken intentionally, the player will be banned for the duration of the Server event without warning.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Hello all, since the new CSGO update, they have allowed CSGO maps to be played on gmod without going into hammer and doing things to convert them so we can put them on gmod. We can now play CSGO maps on gmod easily. If you don't have CSGO, you can now download it for free on steam, its not the full version but it should give you the textures required to see CSGO maps on gmod. If that still fails to work, or you just simply cant join because it says you don't have the map, or your version differs from the server, you can ask in our Discord support channel for the map and we might be able to give you the map file for it. You can expect new maps soon for both Surf and Surf DM.
So here you can suggest Surf and Surf DM maps from CSGO and CSS. (Normal surf maps can be a Surf DM map, but we may have to modify it slightly, like forbidden ways.) Also some T2 maps that get suggested may get put on the T1 server depending on how difficult/easy they are.

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.
