Squad 5, alive!

It’s been long overdue, you know it, I know it. But I suppose it’s better late than never!

Squad 5 is a system that allows us to recognize and award those community members who contribute in notable ways, often going above and beyond what a typical member might do.

Reminder that you earn each Squad 5 badge level, one

Once support has ended for 32-bit you will no longer be able to launch NS2 unless you upgrade your Operating System to a 64-bit version.
