No ETA for the fix.

ENT Is Restructuring!

Posted by aRt)Y on Mon Feb 20, 2017 11:49 am

"Uh?!", you might think. Too late for the new year's resolution and too early for the spring cleaning à la Google.

Nonetheless, ENT is trying out a new role concept. While for you, the public user, doesn't change much, we would like to inform you either way, so this doesn't come as a surprise to you. :)

Starting today, ENT has no longer a "chain of command" or staff hierarchy (well, there's still the staff department, but that's another story). Instead, we've leveled the staff equally. Each casual staff member can get another layer of permissions. Rather than ranks, they are roles. So for example, a blue could also be moderating the forum but that doesn't put him higher in the now non-existing hierarchy.

This is not meant as a demotion for members but simply shifting permissions. The greens have done great work but unfortunately, the concept itself does no longer work. In order for you to get a clear overview, there's a handy member-role-permissions matrix as well as the sub-forums' moderation groups. Perhaps a new face will process your requests soon, be kind and say hi! :D

On another note, thanks to the new moderators who have done an amazing job helping us! Dont be too mad if there's one or two mistakes, they are still learning and we can fix it anytime. ;)

Additionally, and also very unfortunate, due to internal affairs, we will have to freeze most of the bot-related suggestions (and technical implementations anyway) for the moment.

If you've any questions, join our Discord. The third giveaway is still running! :)

Improve ENT and become a moderator!

Posted by aRt)Y on Thu Feb 09, 2017 5:20 pm

Management wrote:Enterprise Gaming is once again looking for qualified, dedicated and motivated moderators! Over the years, we see many great moderators contributing their time to voluntarily help ENT, to improve its community and to support with the general administration. Unfortunately, life never makes it easy for one and activity must be reduced due to school, jobs and other exams which might be ahead of one.

While we usually monitor a natural circle of activity going up and down in the winter times due to holidays, it is different this time; ENT might need some more help. Our obligation is to support our staff and to ensure their well-being. Overworking them is something we neither want nor demand - after all, it is voluntarily.

Knowing you understand the dilemma, we are asking you to change the situation you often complain about. So ENT is actively hiring new moderators! We are already talent-scouting but we don't necessarily reach the people who might be ideal for the job.

What do you get from working as a moderator?
  • You contribute to a great community and "give back" to the next generation of players
  • You get to shape ENT's future with the Management
  • An awesome feeling having helped users and doing good
  • Working with a dedicated and friendly staff who even like to joke around
  • Free in-game spoof

For this unique opportunity, we have adjusted our requirements. So what does ENT need from you?
  • You should be at least one week registered on the forum
  • At least 20 posts on the forum to show you are contributing
  • Having posted on ban requests and few appeals demonstrating your knowledge
  • Being at least specialized in one game genre (e.g. NWU, DotA, LTD, etc.)

To post your application, please use the format on the wiki (but ignore the requirements listed there).

We are looking forward to reading your applications!

Eurobattle.net fixed

Posted by HazarDous on Tue Feb 07, 2017 5:15 am

Hey,

Users from eurobattle.net weren't able to join ENT games any more. See tech support topic for more info.

This issue has now been resolved. Eurobattle.net players should be able to play on ENT bots. Had to restart all bots, so let me know if there's any bot missing, offline on a server, etc. by posting a tech support topic.

Thanks and sorry for the delay :)

Discord Giveaway, Emojis and Bots!

Posted by aRt)Y on Thu Jan 26, 2017 5:17 pm

Enterprise Gaming has already invited more than 800 users to our Discord community!

To celebrate that, we are doing 3 giveaways à $20 in February. If you want to participate (staff excluded), join our Discord community and type the command "!g" (without quotes) in the #lobby in the time frames below. (The winner for each giveaway will be randomly chosen by a bot.) Due to technical difficulties with the discord bot, we have changed the technical procedure of the giveaway. So participate in the giveaway, submit this form.

First giveaway: Feb, 1st - Feb, 7th
Second giveaway: Feb, 8th - Feb, 14th
Third giveaway: Feb, 15th - Feb, 21th

Furthermore, we have now added a list of our bots to the wiki to describe their purposes and their most useful commands. If you have questions regarding the commands, ask the Management.

We also added a set of icons to our Discord chat. These are mainly Warcraft 3 standard icons which might be a bit boring. To change that, we will start a little contest. Find 10 real cool Warcraft 3 icons which reflect emotions/actions (e.g. sleeping, roaring, etc.) and post them on our graphics section the winner will be awarded with $10 at the end of February. You may uses resources such as Warcraft's official page.

Finally, ENT has expanded its donation rewards. You may now claim the following rewards for donating:
  • Discord Color: Purple (standard)
  • Discord Color: Gold (premium)
  • Discord: External Emojis
  • Discord: Private Channel

As a side note: Discord has now officially added a search function. So in case you have questions, try searching the #support channel!

Good luck & have fun. We are looking forward to seeing more of you join us. If you have any more ideas on how to improve our Discord community, let the Management know. <3

Welcome to Discord!

Posted by aRt)Y on Sat Jan 14, 2017 12:39 pm

Hello guys,

we recently announced that Enterprise Gaming switched to Discord (https://discord.gg/23gCRX5) and with up to 300 users and counting, we are happy to announce that we will now officially replace our AJAX chat with the Discord platform (in case you wonder why you get redirected).

For any support questions, information you seek or generally interaction with staff and community members, feel free to join us. We are looking forward to seeing you! :)

Discord keeps adding new features and we are thrilled for the channel categories (which they will add soon^tm) to finally properly organize our community hub with all the game channels you might want to have.

Furthermore, the staff is looking into possible Discord rewards for donors. So if you have got any ideas, let us know. :)

Stay tuned!

Maintenance

Posted by HazarDous on Wed Jan 11, 2017 2:15 am

Hello,

We will shut down all ENT bots on Thursday night 9PM EST for maintenance. It will last about 15 minutes, and you may disconnect from currently playing games.

Thanks, and happy gaming.

Happy New Year!

Two years have passed since the last time ENT wished you a happy new year. Considering we already skipped Christmas, we cant miss out on this one! ;)

Like always, many things changed and a lot happened. So if you ever lose track, just check out our communication channels. If you need to see the bigger picture again, take a look at our new community history (more input appreciated!).

One of the biggest changes to come is our introduction to Discord. You probably know it already from other Warcraft 3 or gaming communities in general. Our AJAX-based chat is rather out-dated and doesn't offer much. It pretty much covers the basics to offer support but we are looking forward to seeing our community users stopping by. Join us! <3

Happy New Year
wishes you Enterprise Gaming!

A season full of tournaments!

Posted by aRt)Y on Wed Nov 23, 2016 10:51 am

Edit: As promised: viewforum.php?f=270


It seems like there is no end to tournaments - luckily for you. ;)

The Sept. DotA LoD and Nov. LTD tournaments have just ended with a total prize payout of $960.

We already have another tourney in planning: Civ Wars is scheduled for December. Sign-up here!
Finally, we might even get to see a custom tournament but that hasn't been decided, yet.

Congratulations to all players and happy gaming!

Few Updates

Posted by HazarDous on Sun Oct 30, 2016 1:37 am

Hai everyone,

we would like to inform you about a few things.


First of all, we have decided to stop autohosting Hero Wars, and Enfo's TS MT on ENT21 and ENT49 respectively. The reason being that these bots were not used actively enough. Those who wish to play these maps can still use our private hosting service, though.


Secondly, ENT is open to new autohost map suggestions. Anyone who wishes to have a map (given it is actively played) autohosted can post on the suggestion forum.

As such, we have recently started autohosting Legion TD HELL 1100+, Zombie Invasion, Island Troll Tribes and The Kingdom of Kaliron on ENT89, 25, 49 and 89 respectively. Try them out!


Lastly, ENT has just recently partnered with the actual developers of Battleships Pro and Civilization Wars. They have been given a sub-forum on ENT in order to help the development of their maps. We would like to encourage everyone to post their feedback, suggestions, bug reports, etc. in these sub-forums.

Note, there are other maps' sub-forums. For more information, visit the Map Development forum.


Enjoy your games!

November LTD Tournament

      We will be hosting a Legion TD Tournament in November. Organized and supported by MickeyTheMousie.

EntConnect is back up!

Posted by HazarDous on Sun Sep 25, 2016 2:21 pm

First of all, sorry for the long waiting. EntConnect has now been fixed, and should work as intended for every user. Would that not be the case, please post a topic in technical support.

Furthermore, the issue with the Warcraft III LAN list being outdated is now solved, as well.



Special thanks to Stealer.

Half a billion Yahoo accounts breached

Posted by aRt)Y on Fri Sep 23, 2016 6:23 am

http://arstechnica.com/security/2016/09 ... d-hackers/

While the breach was in late 2014, Yahoo just recently found out about it. As there are thousands of ENT users using Yahoo e-mails, I strongly advice changing your information both on Yahoo and ENT.

The account information may have included names, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt), and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.

Forum Downtime

Posted by aRt)Y on Mon Sep 05, 2016 4:52 pm

As you might have experienced, the forum was down a few times the past couple of days.

This is due to someone ddosing our servers and it might happen again in the next days.

We would like to apologize for any inconvenience that might have occurred. We continue our work to protect the servers and to provide a free (hosting) service to our community.

Happy Gaming.

Gproxy DLL - Reconnection tool

Posted by HazarDous on Wed Aug 24, 2016 5:32 am

As Gproxy GUI has become unusable due to last Warcraft III patch, many users have complained about other recon tools being messy and difficult of use. However, ENT has recently learned about a new reconnection tool called Gproxy DLL by h3rmit. This tool is efficient, and extremely easy to set up.

Furthermore, it comes with a few other advantages;

* Gproxy DLL works over Battle.net. By default it connects to europe.battle.net, but it can be easily changed.
* It does not require any cd-keys.
* It is a single file, and it is a Warcraft III plugin.
* Games that support Gproxy will appear with a [G] in front.
* Gproxy automatically spoof checks you upon joining a lobby.

Gproxy DLL is now recommended for everyone to use. You download it, and find more about it on our Wiki page; http://wiki.entgaming.net/index.php?title=Gproxy_DLL

Do note that we have a limited experience of this tool, and that any new issue regarding its use that is not listed on the Troubleshooting and Tips section should be adressed in the Technical Support forum.


Hoping that this tool saves you all a lot of trouble.

September Tournaments

Posted by aRt)Y on Sun Aug 07, 2016 4:24 pm

ENT is glad to announce new tournaments!

DotA LoD is being organized by warlord1994.

Hopefully, there will be enough players for a Legion TD x10 HELL tournament (organized by rip_joe5), too. For information on that one, please visit the forum thread.

ENT will be rewarding winners of both tournaments.

Donations Reworked

Posted by aRt)Y on Sun Aug 07, 2016 4:07 pm

Hello,

we've slightly changed the donation rewards and adjusted the price tags. The purpose was to offer new rewards, remove old and unused ones and to allow the administration to be more flexible.

Furthermore, we take this opportunity to make the donation process more transparent and to properly administrate it. That means any donation reward prior to this day will expire 01/01/2017. Any donation going forward is properly documented and taken care of.

The donation page has slightly changed, as you will now find the rewards on the wiki.

Please note, more than one stats restoration are now to be claimed via donations.

If you've any creative ideas on possible rewards, please let us know.

We would like to thank anyone who donated to ENT for allowing us to provide this service and also to reward tournament winners with great prizes! :)

ENT51 hosts DotA v6.85k ap us/ca

Posted by aRt)Y on Mon Aug 01, 2016 7:59 pm

We are hosting DotA v6.85k Allstars by Dracol1ch on ENT90 with ap for whose of you who would like to play it.
The original map is still being hosted as apem and arem on ENT11 & ENT38.

If you would like to comment on the changes or maps, please feel free to do so here.

As always, this is a test and we might keep or revert it.

July Tournaments 2016 Results ($650 payout)

Posted by aRt)Y on Tue Jul 26, 2016 6:20 pm

All tournaments are over and ENT is more than happy to pay out a total of $650!

This year, LTD and LIHL were especially successful while niche games like Footmen vs Grunts or Hero Push gained a least the attention of players. Nonetheless, we would like to give a big thank you to the tournament organizers @MickeyTheMousie (LTD), @eldryan (LIHL) and @wTc[JediMaster] (Footmen vs Grunts & Hero Push) for their sublime job.
I am convinced that it is a good tournament model for the future. So if anyone wants to organize a tournament sponsored by ENT, feel free to do so!


Results:
    I. Legion TD: $420
      Winner: #1 and fans (Avadakedavra, Tom_Hardy, n1ll3 & elektro-): $65 each and in-game spoof
      Runner-Up: Ragtag Bashers (Jamo, milfhunter96, pyro_p & Singaboutme): $30 each
      3rd Place: LOYALTY OVER MONEY (HugMeOnce, 1007, RoseThorn & Dong[thai]): $10 each
      Note: Games have been recorded and are available on YouTube.
    II. LIHL: $160
      Winner: beats Solo (Eldryanthewise & Patarinsky): $60 each and forum color
      Runner-Up: MonkeyLegion (schrumpfi & broud3r): $20 each
    III. Hero Push: $70
      Winner: wormTastic (wTc[JediMaster] & GoMinGo): $25 each
      Runner-Up: ship (wtc[ship] & wtc[mapa]): $10 each
    IV. Footmen vs Grunts: $0
      Canceled.
    Comments:
      1. LTD has received in-game spoof as the players who participated are mostly public players.
      2. LIHL has received forum color as the players are active forum users and more competitive.
      Both are temporary.
      3. While Footmen vs Grunts did not really succeed as a tournament should (mainly because the players who signed up didn't show up), we will give a few bucks for the motivation and hard work. :)


How to claim your prize(s):
  • Validate your account (with which you participated and which is listed on the team post) with your forum account.
  • Private message me your e-mail in order to receive your prize in form of a PayPal transaction.
  • Private message subject: <your team> - <your account>
    I would like to ask everybody who already sent me a pm to resent it with the format above.

The tournament sub-forum will be moved to the tournament archive (except for LIHL).

Over the past years, ENT has now paid out a total of ~$3910 in tournament prize money. If you would like to ensure future prizes, you are more than welcome to donate to ENT - you even get a few things for that. ;)

Thank you very much to everyone who participated! We are looking forward to seeing two or three more tournaments this year.
