So out with the old and in with the new has struct again. We have decided to swap the hardly used US 3 & 4 servers and replace them with new shiny ones in a location i know they will get used a lot, that place being Canada.
These servers are as always of the highest performance so use them as much as you can and enjoy them. If they are used heavily, i will happily add another one in this location.
So today Mr. 4rmyy ♥ suggested why don't we add some 64 tick game servers so you guys can warmup on our retakes before you play your game of Match Making... now this being a brilliant idea and kudos to Mr. 4rmyy ♥ again for suggesting it, i have launched 3 64 tick servers for you guys to get on - 1 in the EU (France) and 2 in the US (East). Now if these servers to become popular we may add another one or two where we feel necessary.
US #7 Rifle [64 Tick] - 184.108.40.206:27017
US #8 Rifle [64 Tick] - 220.127.116.11:27018
Today the UK Servers have changed IPs as our host upgrades the internal network and move our servers across into their new data center, with this change means a new IP for our servers.

As our community grows its only right that our brand should grow as well and one of the lacking downfalls i believe is our logo. I have been playing with numerous ideas myself for the past month or so but they just aren't hitting the ground running as of now. Then i thought well why don't i ask the vast player base we have to submit their ideas and help brand RainBox Gaming and in return get a free game or something.
So here goes, below will give some rought ideas on exactly what i am after and if someone feels they have the skills and imagination to come up with something suitable then give it a go. ....
Today we have got a few more servers online on our new dedicated box located in Atlanta, USA. Our new dedicated box boasts a decent 16GB ram with dual xeon cpus and pretty insane connectivity to all parts of the US. We aim to setup a deathmatch server along with a US surf on this new dedicated box too.
As always these boxes and new servers can only be provided with the great support you all give by donating and becoming VIP players so thank you once again.

In a weeks time we will take all suggestions and see what is what and amend as necessary.
Starting from last year i released the VIP status to everyone for a chance for them to help me keep the servers online and continue our strong growth long into the future and this week we hit a humongous milestone of over 1000 active VIP players who have and will continue to help RainBox Gaming stay online for good!
The support and income from every single VIP really does help me keep the servers up and running every month! The cost to run this small network is not cheap at all and looking into the future this cost will only increase as we aim to go truly global by adding new locations like Australia, Brazil and Canada into the mix. But one thing remains, RainBox would not be where we are today without these valuable VIP players, there was a time when i left my previous job that the pot ran dry and the only reason we are still online today is thanks to the generosity and kindness from our community.
Thank you to everyone!
With this in mind i have got all the retakes back online, minus the !ws plugin. I will be looking into adding more plugins to replace the VIP perks. But like many of your said... at least there is servers to play on!
With this change EU 1,2 & 3 now have new IP addresses. Please find the new addresses on the servers page.
Before any VIPs start a debate about how they paid for the !WS and want their money back..... you donated to keep the servers online, donated is an important word there. It clearly states at the bottom of the VIP page as well we can change the perks of VIPs at any time. As you still are and will remain a VIP this has not been broken in anyway.
There is no easy way around it, every-time they ban us it stops one of our dedicated admins from playing any csgo at all for over a week, This time it was Lindgrens, last time it was Moriarty.
The easy solution to get our servers back online and stop them from being taken offline by all the time by valve would be to remove the !ws plugin. I know however this will cause a major upset to all the VIPs, hense why i am reluctant to do so.
So right now i am currently thinking of a couple of things. It will take me a couple more days to complete however so the servers will not be online until then. It will involve completely redoing the servers, stripping them back to vanilla and redoing every plugin so nothing is left that could be seen in valves eyes as being "banned"
Until then, i thank you for your patience.
