As some of you may be aware yesterday there was a major update for CSGO bringing in a new graffiti aspect to the game just like it was back in 1.6. Now this is a fantastic update which Valve will make a lot of money on no doubt. But just like every CSGO update as of late it has caused further problems for the community due to us now having to await a patch.
What happened is a few aspects of Sourcemod, that is the backbone of RainBox and runs on all our servers, clashes with bits of the new update which causes our servers to crash. Now there is a new patch out but i happen to be at work so will not be able to get them fixed until a bit later on.
I will try and get them updated in the mean time whilst at work someway or another but i do apologise about the downtime of our servers on our busiest day.
The EU and US FFA Deathmatch have completed the testing phase and are now open fully to the public! HLStats has now been added once again to the servers so go head to toe with the folks across the pond!
EU FFA DM 220.127.116.11:27115
DM FFA US 18.104.22.168:27020
So today we are pleased to announce the revival of our twitter account @rainboxgaming
The twitter account will be posting any new threads made by the head administrators to let you guys know the latest news about RainBox Gaming whilst on the move.
We would love a follow to help our account grow
We have setup our US Deathmatch server and we are currently in the testing phase so we really need you guys on it to test out the functionality of the server. We commissioned the well known sourcemod plugin developer Maxximou5, who actually created the DM Plugin, to create the server for us so we hope you all enjoy it. If it proves good, all okay, we will copy it over to our EU dedicated box and maybe even the UK.

In addition to above we have also got the EU Surf back online, now again this is in testing phase so we really need your opinions on any maps to add, any rates to change etc but i am sure you will all enjoy it. Once testing is complete we will copy it over to the US so the EU and US can do battle of timings.

We are always looking to help our community grow in different ways however adding new locations is the key to our growth. New locations means better pings for those local players to the new location, if you have a better ping you are more likely to want to keep coming back to RainBox.
Previously we had 2 swedish servers... we shut them down due to the poor performance from our previous host out there however now they are returning for a test. We have setup a server is Sweden, Stockholm for you guys to test and use, let us know the performance on this server!
So today i implemented a small suggestion someone made whilst i was on a server. As a VIP you should no longer get the messages whilst on the RainBox Servers asking you to become a VIP to help keep the servers online.
It's only a small amendment and you will still see the adverts like, join our TS and website etc etc... This means when we add an announcement / advert when a new server is added etc you will still be able to be notified of that
I hope this small amendment helps
Let me know your thoughts
So today i purchased a license for our teamspeak server to allow us to grow the limit from 32 slots (unlicensed) to 64 slots (licensed). Hopefully this increase is slots will enable more of our users to use our server without fear of not being able to join. It will also mean more admins will be on and available more of the time
This increase wasn't cheap as always.. it was $55 for the year for anyone who is asking. If you want to help and give towards this payment please just submit a donation Every little really does help!
After the latest CSGO update on the 18-08 all CSGO community servers are experiencing random crashes. This isn't just our servers but a lot of other servers out there in the community, we are not sure of the reason nor the fix.
We like everyone else have to sit tight and wait for a fix on this issue.
Today we have got our custom weapon menu up and running on the majority of our servers, this plugin lets players choose a more varied variety of weapons to play with on our retakes. It also enables us to easily add / remove guns if and when we please in the future.
We have also added the bomb site announcement hint on all servers other then the US 1 and 2 as they need sourcemod updating.
I'll post more in detail post tomorrow.
Buts its 2:30am and i have work at 8:30 so :O
