Happy New Year, Gunslingers!

What? It's already March? Hot damn.

Better late than never, right? Anyway, welcome to the topic for all major announcements pertaining to the Gunslingers during the year of 2021. Be sure to check back here frequently as all major changes, events, and communications will be echoed here throughout the year. Let's get rollin'!

March 10th, 2021

Game Of The Year - You may have noticed the poll at the top of this topic. Cast your vote for what game was the Best of 2020! For the last two months, we have been voting on the best of 2020 had to offer in several categories. The winners of each of those categories automatically become nominations for the Best Game of 2020. Once the voting ends, look out for a special write-up or podcast (or both!) that will break down all the winners this year.

Third Party & In-Game Clans Security - All Gunslingers in-game clans and external website groups will have owners or "founders" held by Gunslinger Administrators or community-wide Trail Guides. The change is meant to be a security measure to ensure that rogue individuals don't "run off" with GS branded entities, leaving the rest of the community without a place to go. Unfortunately, we learned the value of such a failsafe last year with one of our Warframe fronts. Ask any Warframe player, and they will tell you how much work goes into Dojo grooming, so it is heartbreaking to see someone use their stature in an in-game clan feature to steal everyone else's collective hard work for themselves. We are committed to make sure such an event doesn't happen again.

We are being upfront about the security change because it was leaving some people confused, particularly in our Xbox Destiny 2 front. Speaking of which...

Destiny 2 In-Game Clan Migration & Raffle - All Destiny 2 Xbox players should migrate to THIS DESTINY 2 CLAN if you aren't already in it:
https://www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2?groupid=2278580
We already have a secondary clan ready to launch should we max out in active seats, and we'll post information for that clan as well when/if needed. We know migrating to another Destiny 2 in-game clan can be disruptive, and that is why we will be holding a Destiny 2 Xbox Raffle on April 15th, 2021 for everyone on the in-game clan roster! Two lucky GSers will win $20 Amazon gift cards! All YOU have to do is be on the linked clan roster to be entered into the raffle!

I'll wrap up the announcements for tonight, but expect to hear about more improvements shortly!

I've created a public facebook group for fellow gaming parents with gaming kids that anyone here is welcome to join! It is a more generalized group experience not tied to any sort of clan interfacing. https://www.facebook.com/groups/parentswhogame

I just wanted to take a moment and give a shoutout to McMurphy and the other leaders for keeping this community going. I don't get back here as often as I like (as I'm sure is the case for many of us), but I'm always happy to come back to GSG and see the community is still here, and still bringing like-minded gamers together. My most sincere thanks to all of you!!

A Square Enix ID field has been entered onto everyone's profile. Not having it was a real bonehead oversight on my part considering all Outriders players should fill that field out to make friend inviting across multiple platforms functional!

If you are playing the game, visit your User Control Panel! As always, check the Outriders Master List frequently to see who else may be playing the game since you last looked!

A while back, we announced a raffle exclusively for our Xbox Destiny 2 crew for a chance for two active members of our in-game clan to win $20 Amazon Gift Cards. The time is overdue to announce the winners!

The two names randomly picked to win the gift cards are your fellow Gunslinger members...
