          Soooo...I hope you guys don't mind. I've been spending some of this quarantine trying to learn new things. One of those is re-learning the Adobe creative suite. I used this ZE event to make an after effects project and learn some more about splicing content together. I apologize ahead of time; but I did not ask anyone's permission so if anyone has any complaints please let me know immediately and I'll rip the video down.

          Here is the video...

                Well, if it means you can help the team more than @Kyro, then I think its a win.

                Great map choices. Please also enable rebuys (along with !kevlar and 1 extra !he)

                For future ZE-specific events, I'd recommend using a different time slot, or day of the week, to avoid overlapping with other servers. I guess we can see how this week goes, but as a dedicated ZE player it would be a really tough decision to decide which event to attend.

                In order to populate the server, we would need some regular ZE players from other servers to join. Saturdays 5pm Eastern is reserved for GFL's weekly events, so large portion of the NA player base would be occupied. Saturday morning is also when EU servers host their events, so those players are unlikely to stick around either.

                Fridays are event free, a great time to schedule these. Time-zones would be tricky, since people might be occupied until 5pm pacific. Maybe do a poll to determine what folks prefer, but avoid the overlaps with other servers. This is specific to ZE, not sure about MG

                  We have decided to keep these disabled. PlagueFest is known for their classic and harder settings which a lot of people do miss.


                  I've reached out to players, both old and new, who are interested in bringing PF ZE back. I know we're competing against a community who has been doing weekly events for a while now so it will be interesting to see what numbers we get. It's always good to have some sort of competition. This isn't a set schedule for these ZE events, but this is what the community asked for. Last week, we had an event on Friday where we reached ~50 players but many of our community members were not able to attend.

                  We hope you can come out and have ZE fun with us!

                  A game-mode like ZE only looses popularity if the community stops supporting it by ending regular events and by not attending the server anymore. If I may make a suggestion... in past communities I have been a part of, one of the more successful methods I saw to keep servers popular was a hosted community night for each server. On a designated weekly night, all the popular admins and members would swarm the server and it would drive the server to be full. As more regular or new players would jump on, admins and senior members would slowly jump off to make room. I was always surprised at how well it worked to keep the servers full. Occasionally they would all just randomly swarm a low number server to boost its value.

                  Okay, that was my two cents thrown into pot. Ramble over!

                    Main event is over, but we're currently playing some post-event Mako if you missed it. Thanks to everyone who attended and congrats to event winners @Undead, @Xwb, and @Bl@ke! :zombiekiller:
