#PatchSaturday

Posted by aRt)Y on Sat Feb 14, 2015 12:19 pm

Time for hashtags? Ay!

To further help you keep up-to-date with rule changes, we will now only update rules on each Saturday (if there is anything), unless there are emergency updates (glitches or exploits) needed.

To get things started, we have updated the following rules:

Majority of the removed ones are merged with the general rules. We do strongly recommend you to check out the changes.
Furthermore, the forum rules have received an update, too.

New rules have been added:

On a side note, there are some changes for the Legend TD In-House League, too.
  • greatbeyond is now a LIHL mod.
  • To apply for a LIHL position, you now have to post in the Staff Application section. You can find the criteria for both positions on the wiki.
  • The guide has been slightly updated. You can find the vouch criteria there.
  • The season rankings have been moved to the wiki, too.


The rules are active and to be enforced on the 02/15/15.

DotA v6.83d

Posted by uakf.b on Sun Feb 08, 2015 7:37 pm

Hi all,

We are trying out a new DotA map produced by DracoL1ch over at http://d1stats.ru/. Mostly they are importing features from DotA 2 into the map. Map downloads have been enabled for the next few days since most players probably don't have this map.

We'd really like to hear your thoughts about the map. There is currently a suggestion topic open, please post comments there.

Best,
- uakf.b

ENT Connect with new Java

Posted by uakf.b on Mon Jan 26, 2015 11:20 pm

The problems with accessing ENT Connect when running the latest Java 8u31 version should be resolved at this time. The issue stemmed from new Java version not accepting the web server SSL certificates when presented out of order. We apologize for the delay in resolving this, it was a complicated issue that took a long time to diagnose.

Merry Christmas

One year is over, yet again!

Looking through the suggestions and Warcraft 3 section, there have been many constructive, productive, and inspiring discussions that, you, the community has achieved.

Enterprise Gaming is proud of its active members helping us to realize many tournaments (for example in January, July & September). With your support, we hope to be able to host many more tournaments next year with nice awards and prizes. Do suggest ideas for our next tournament!

Not only did we create a wiki to centralize all the information, rules, and guides, but we have also restructured the forum and added a new forum theme. We hope to finish all updates within the next few months. In addition, Agreements has built from scratch a URL service and a new tournament system which we will be using in 2015!

In an effort to achieve better transparency, we now have a Google+ page, a Twitter account, and a forum news group to inform you about rule changes and other important news.

Life is a roller-coaster. 2014 had its up and downs. ENT had been plagued by many attacks on its infrastructure and we had to say bye to many well working staff members. But when one door closes, another opens - so we are very happy to have new moderators on the team who are passionate about this classic game we all love. We are always looking for new staff members who want to improve the community and be part in shaping the future of Enterprise Gaming, so feel free to give it a shot in 2015!

Overall, 2014 has been a good year and while many foresee a dark future for Warcraft 3, we have seen constant growth. Take a look at these gathered statistics:

We are constantly striving to improve our services and your gaming experience on both the bots and forum. So stay tuned!

At this point, we would like mention a big thanks to our donators for their support.

Doing administrative work for an online community can be very funny and interesting; you get to meet many different people from around the world. Meaning, Christmas is at different times for everyone around the world (from GMT-11 to GMT+14).

As you can see, Santa Claus himself has asked us to help him, so our game moderators have turned into reindeer and the forum moderators are now helpful elves! The Enterprise Gaming staff wishes you Merry Christmas, the best of luck (for both life and the presents you may get :P), and, of course, relaxing holidays with your dearest, family, and friends.

Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noël, Frohe Weihnachten, Sheng Dan Kuai Le, Glædelig Jul, Hyvää Joulua, Kala Christouyenna, Buon Natale, 메리 크리스마르, Meri Kirihimete, Wesołych Świąt Bożego Narodzenia, Счастливого рождества, Feliz Navidad, Mutlu Noeller everyone!

Network issues

Posted by uakf.b on Thu Oct 30, 2014 10:16 pm

Edit: this should be resolved. We will continue monitoring.

The U.S. server has been having network issues over the last week. We are investigating.

Upgrade to phpBB 3.1

Posted by uakf.b on Tue Oct 28, 2014 5:15 pm

We will be upgrading to the phpBB 3.1 release over the next few days. During this time, the "entgaming.net" website may become inaccessible.

Bot updates: 7 October 2014

Posted by uakf.b on Tue Oct 07, 2014 1:16 pm

The following updates have been made:

  • Automatically cancel a player's drop/forfeit vote after three minutes
  • Only need all but one to forfeit if game has >= 4 players, otherwise need everyone
  • The lag now penalizes for repeated short-duration lagging. Each instance of lag screen counts as five seconds against player, along with however long the player lagged for; this is added to player's "total lag time" field. Each second that player plays without lagging causes "total lag time" to go down by 1/15 (but remains non-negative). Each time a player lags, the lag screen will start from 45-"total lag time" seconds.

The fountain farming rule will be adjusted to simply say you may !ff if you don't want to be fountain farmed.

Network issues in Quebec

Posted by uakf.b on Sun Oct 05, 2014 6:49 pm

Our service provider's DDoS-filtering system in Quebec appears to be having issues. We are contacting them for more information; we don't have access to detailed network information so it is not clear if this is in relation to a denial of service targeting our server or an issue on their infrastructure. In the meantime we have switched our network configuration with them to a different mode that doesn't currently have issues.

Bots are currently back online.

Edit: Europe bots in France location (same provider) are also affected, but now back to normal.
Edit2: back to normal.

Posted by Agreements on Fri Oct 03, 2014 1:32 pm

Dear users

The official news post has been overwritten.

How to keep track of what the Enterprise Gaming Administration is doing?

  • The wiki and its news history in case you missed something.
  • Info-Emails: Join the forum group to receive emails to your forum registered email about rule changes.
  • Google Plus: +EntGamingNet
  • Twitter: @entgamingmedia
  • In-game announcements. We strongly recommend you visiting the website we link to.
  • There might even be a topic to address the changes in the corresponding game forum section - not guaranteed tho.

ENT servers

Posted by BouncingHitman on Tue Jun 24, 2014 10:03 pm

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the ENT servers, in which several bots hosting your favourite maps are now offline. Yes, we know about the issue and we are trying our best on resolving it, but we currently do not have an estimated completion time.

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience, thank you for your patience & understanding.
