Community Announcement

Recommended Posts

G'day OzzyGamers!

 

Many of you may be aware of sweeping changes within the server management team. Notably, Aaron has stepped down from Founding Director. After some consultation between Storm and Ryan, it was decided that Ryan would instead be made the Director and he would lead the community. Storm has now chosen to be involved in the community as just a community member, and will not be having any direct involvement in the staff team of the server.

 

For those of you who don't know, Ryan has been around the community for many years. He was a previous server manager and developer who left the community at the end of 2016. Ryan has since been doing Arma development for our friends at StrayaGaming as well as running his own server hosting business. Ryan has the unique ability to be able to heavily subsidize the server hosting costs for the time being due to his business connection.

 

Following the news of Ryan's appointment and former management stepping aside, a flood of former community members with management and development experience have returned to the community. This includes the appointment of a new server management team which is still being refined. Further details of this structure will be released when available.

Moving forward, we plan to overhaul what OzzyGaming is and how it operates in order to make it a more enjoyable community for everyone.

 

Our biggest ambition is to ditch the 'OzzyGaming is an Altis Life server' stigma that has been with the community since it formed. OzzyGaming will be a community, not just a game server. We believe that be giving the community more outlets than just Altis life, everyone can become more tolerant of each other rather than focusing on a few Altis Life disagreements. You will notice over the coming days and weeks that we will be launching multiple other game platforms, outside of just Arma 3. While nothing is final just yet, we are looking into the following servers: FiveM (GTA V RP), CSGO Surf, Exile and Arma KOTH  just to name a few. I should note that Altis life will be staying! No game is out of the question and we may also launch seasonal game servers as well depending on the current trends.

 

We plan to fix a few issues with the current Altis Life mission, namely relating to stability, and the addition of an Anti-Cheat. In the long-term, we plan on rebuilding a completely new mission file on the Altis Life 5.0 framework, which comes with new features and stability updates. We will also be completely remaking and fixing features that currently exist on the Altis Life server, and add our own new features that have been proposed by the OzzyGaming community and staff team. This update will likely not happen for a month or more, and will come with a server wipe, though once again, this will not happen for quite some time. More details on these features and our extended plan for the Altis Life server shall be released sometime in the future.

 

Along with new games, we plan to release a completely new website (which this is on now) and branding in the next week to signify the change. TeamSpeak will also be overhauled with less focus on Altis life. We have also launched a discord server, which will also be replacing the private staff slack, allowing us to involve the community in our discussions more. Discord will mainly be used as a text chat program for the community with TeamSpeak being the main voice server.

 

Within staff, the main agenda is to eliminate the 'us and them' attitude. Everyone is part of the community, everyone is welcome here, no matter if you just log onto TeamSpeak once a month, check the forums or play Altis life every day. Staff members are simply the loyal members of the community who are entrusted with powers to keep order and help people. There will be no more "If you don't like it, leave" attitude by the new management team.

 

Hopefully, the changes we are making are received positively by the general community. I am more than happy to listen and explain things to people one on one in TeamSpeak if you give me a poke. Feel free to also reply here or make some forum threads for discussion. Again, nothing is set in stone and we are just getting the ball rolling, but we are very eager to make Ozzy great again.

 

Regards,

Zaydan (loves a title) Executive

And yet Caldweld wants me banned because he thinks I am a troublemaker QQ :( - Is the change from "If you don't like it, leave" to "If we don't like you, banned"?
