Hello, I am Detox and I’d like to welcome you to the re-brand of the LgK Community and to announce the re-opening of LgK.
The community has come a long way since @Gimpster founded it. Dedicated members and staff throughout the years have turned it into the best gaming community and it's an honor to be a part of LgK. Our goal moving forward is to maintain and improve on the standards everyone has come to expect from LgK. We'll also be regularly releasing new custom content, new servers and venturing into new games.
You'll notice the forum is different. We have worked hard the past couple of weeks to improve on the old vBulletin forum. There are a lot of new features, feel free to look around and as always if you have any suggestions or requests let us know. If you have any trouble logging in feel free to contact me through steam.

Before I go into detail regarding what has changed, I'd like to thank @Shady for entrusting me with the community. I hope with time I can win the trust and respect of the members.
1. A community for the community, by the community:
While LgK was founded as a clan, there was a slow but apparent transition into a community during the past few years. With that in mind it felt like the right time to make the full transition. All members are free to tag up LgK, but it is no longer required, nor would it effect anyone's chances of moving up the ranks. The official website is LgKCommunity.com, however you can still connect using LgKClan.com
2. A fresh start. We all make mistakes and most of us learn from them:
I understand not everyone is going to be happy about this, however all bans have been removed. This is a clean slate for everyone. The reasons behind this are: 1. What's in the past is in the past. People change. 2. Advertising is no longer against the rules. You're free to play where ever you want. You can invite your friends to other servers or even post IPs in the servers or forum. We would like to work with the members to provide fun servers and an environment for us all to get to know each other and to have fun, not to dictate where and when you can play.
3. Reclaiming ranks:
Unfortunately all ranks were lost. However all members may reclaim their old ranks. If you were an administrator in any server post in the Staff Applications section to reclaim your rank. Once the rank reclaim request is verified your rank will be re-assigned. All we ask is that everyone goes over the rules again as a few rules have changed.
Dust2 24/7 | I have been working with @blake_won and several other members on small but significant quality of life improvements to better the Dust2 experience.
Jailbreak | We have partnered up with GirlGam3rs.com to bring over their Jailbreak server to LgK. It has a ton of new features and I'm sure most jailbreakers would enjoy the new Jailbreak experience. A jailbreak and gang guide will follow soon.
Zombie Plague | It's hard to improve on what was already a great server. However we'll be working closely with the members to spice things up.
Triple Twisted Classics | The server is different for two main reasons. There are 6 custom shop items. Secondly 5 special game modes every 7 rounds to vote from. For more info about the mod check LgK-Community.com/triple-twist-classic
Those servers will be coming out in the upcoming few weeks. We'll then work with the community to improve those servers, add new servers and expand into new games.
Last but not least, I'd like to announce GirlGam3rs has merged into LgK. As most of you that have played in GirlGam3rs know, it's full of fun and great people. I'm glad this merge materialized and can't wait to get the ball rolling. Welcome to all GirlGam3rs. You'll notice the layout resembles GirlGam3rs.com and I'm sure you'll feel right at home.
To conclude, my vision for LgK is huge. I hope to see an outstanding gaming community where people can leave the stress of life behind their computer chair. In the future I hope to expand into other games and become a place where LgK is known as an asset in the gaming industry. I have huge ambitions to lead this community into prosperity.
Thanks for taking the time to read the announcement, I look forward to getting to know and work with most of you in the near future.
