      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

WCCBadploy for President!

So it's been a while since I've been playing in the VG server, and there's this one guy, WCCBadploy. He's on the forums and I'm not too active so I don't know if he ever writes anything, but he's the best Squad Leader I have ever encountered.

We're talking realistic levels of strictness combined with compliments and encouragements at the right time, never letting anyone minge around, being very supportive and wanting to progress better than other Squads.

It's hard to explain if you haven't played with him, but if you have you perfectly get it. He's incredibly talented and if he's fine with it, I think he should be in VG. I don't know how anything works and if only VG members' feedback counts, but I'd seriously check him out, you'll be suprised!

EDIT: I checked and he is quite active. He even replied to my infamous post about how I was an idiotic useless c*nt ("Kicked for being CO") giving me some tips.

Badploy is indeed a great leader, and great team player!  As you could see on his profile, he actually IS a VG Member, and is one of the oldest here (predates my own membership by several months).  The WCC Clan merged with VG when they lost their friend and leader.  They retain their old clan tags in homage.  Other noted WCC/VG members include Sparky, StarchyDuke, and BozZz .  They are all good friends and good people, and already considered VG Members for nearly as long as VG has been a clan.

:hi:

Thank you Matey, For the kind words and platitudes.

But like another regular said, "I only bring what I have and add it to a fantastic team oriented environment, where there are exceptional "digital soldiers" who make us ALL look Good!"

My WCC Colleagues and I will always be eternally grateful to the =VG= Clan.

It is a rare thing to find others out there with the same philosophy and outlook on how to build and sustain great gaming communities.

And I am sure you will all agree that =VG= is the Gold Standard!!

Long may it Continue!!

Oh! And I know that we have the Best Commander-in-Chief in 4 Star General SemlerPDX.

He doesn't remember but because of @WCCBadploy and @FastJack I know how to play this game. 

Things have changed however so we need more active people like you two to teach the noobs.
