    Default Live Stream Event 2013

    Live Stream Event 2013

    UPDATE: 6/30/2013 - full schedule available here


    Greetings fellow Gamers!

    It has been awhile since our last announcement and this time around I have something very exciting to talk about. We have expanded rapidly and continue to do so as I type this. So as to improve and excel server performance we feel the need to install a Solid State Drive in our main server. This will vastly improve load times (such as Minecraft chunk load times) and overall provide a jump in performance.

    Unfortunately SSD's are not cheap and we need a 500 gigabyte drive. So, as a way to raise the money, all the admins came to together one night and brainstormed during one of our meetings. The idea we settled upon was a live stream event, in which the admins of =A0G= would live stream ourselves for 3 days playing over 30 different games! Essentially we will be playing games ranging from League of Legends to Grand Theft Auto IV. You guys might even get the chance to be featured in a few of the streams. During the entire event you will be able to chat live with the streamers and other viewers as well as see the real faces (we are pretty ugly people) of the administrators that keep this awesome place running.

    I am asking you, our loyal members to come together and pitch in any little bit of money you can towards this great cause as the reward will be quite worth it, on top of the benefits you would get for donating in the first place! However, we can't do the event until we reach our goal.

    Go here to donate now.

    Did I mention the grand finale will include 16 admins versus 16 players live streamed on our very own vanilla TF2 server?

    Thanks for everything you do,

    Here are just a few advantages of an SSD or Solid State Drive;


    • Noticeable and extensively faster response time on entire operating system
    • Faster loading of static files and reading of information
    • Faster joining in servers, less load times to access files and folders
    • Minecraft worlds with effectively instantaneous chunk loading
    • Ability to double or triple the size of the Minecraft worlds (from 5k block radius to 10k or even 15k)
    • Overall less noticeable lag times or spikes in any servers
    • No more issues when players join or leave servers


    Lastly, I wanted to reiterate that when you donate, you are also receiving those regular benefits that we give out all year round, however, the money you contribute is going directly towards this cause.

    Once again, thanks for all you do, and thank you for your contributions that keep us running.

    And to go off what spinner says, I have an ssd in my computer right now. Windows start up time (including programs that start with boot up) takes about 15 seconds compared to my hdd which took almost a minute. If you help donate for this ssd, our servers would be twice as efficient.

    Solid States are very nice. Would be a great addition to the server. There is always the option to buy another and raid for 1tb.

    I agree. This should be more interesting than Big Bang Theory.

    Default Just be careful :P

    Be careful, and whatever you do, DON'T defragment that SSD. You'll learn the hard way xD
