Lobby chat added to DExUS server browser

Version 1.16 of DExUS server browser alternative was released. It adds the ability to use lobby chat while browsing game servers. Though it is not expected to be used widely, it is a recall to lobbies in the old SWAT3. Unfortunately, the chat GUI seems to be working only in Czech language.

{SWT} clan closed

One of the stable 1.0 clans {SWT} announced closure today following months of low activity. Recently, they re-started a server and for a while it was quite active, but now it seem to be over. Unfortunately, news like this one are way too frequent and we can expect some more clans to follow.

Another group of players join {FAB}

In the wake of the dead season, the remaining active members from «|US|» clan have joined {FAB}. Although the news was confirmed a few weeks ago the US server expired only today. They will wear a «|FUB|» tag and are the second group of players to join the clan since GameSpy shut down, alongside |Fs| - who use  a |FFABS| tag on the no windows, camp or spawn American-based server.

Who is RA168UK?

There is a new 1.0 server having name "RA168UK'S UK SERVER" and SMAC installed, which means it is no zero-cost home-running server. You can find its owner name registered on GameTracker or UAC3, both registrations being very fresh. All in all this might not be interesting, but in this dead season its quite surprising to see someone with no personal record in this game starting his own server. So who is this guy named RA168UK and what will his server bring to our steady waters? Share your experience from playing there!

Dubious start, silly continuation

Two clans built on bad leadership and poor recruiting process were mentioned recently - |URT| and BoS. How are they doing now?

We issued a warning regarding the first one in the article from April. Since then, two more of their players were busted. First, it was Neitan in a clanwar vs JustFrags. Later, the co-leader Ronnie (xfire: drunkenmaster40) followed him. Clan leader Reisp reacted with his expulsion from the clan. Well done I hear you say? No way in |URT|. On the very next day Ronnie reapplied to the clan and was given a recruit rank. Also, he is in |URT| roster for a new Polish BS 3vs3 league (though that most probably will be just another unsuccessful tournament attempt). Attitude of all 1.0 Polish clans towards cheating is benevolent. Clans like |URT|, DoK|» and recently also JustFrags welcome proven cheaters with open arms.

BoS clan did not attract much players since its rebirth. And from the few, a Honduran called SkrillexXx was busted by UAC. By now, he is still in the clan and the only reaction of clan leader upon hearing this was "lol".

{TWT} clan is reborn

TUGA Warriors Team is a legendary VIP clan that started off in late August last year before dieing in early 2013. The remaining active members went on to join {FAB}, but this all predictably ended in tears and after a few months in the wilderness they have come back to restart {TWT}.  Only this time they have bizarrely named it Ultimate Force, despite none of the current quartet of members having any sort of past relation with {|UF|}. The server has gone live today, but with all the above factors combined with a clan slogan that contains the words "Fear us", it is difficult to think that this will be a serious project. It also maybe would've been wiser to name it Ultimate Force Forever Forever {|UFFF|} to show greater respect to its predecessors
