Squad Five Awards

Posted by unknownworlds 12 years ago

The time has come to award the first Squad Five awards! Launched just over a week ago, Squad Five is a way for us to say thankyou to you for outstanding community effort. There is no doubt that without the collective effort of all of you, NS2 would not be half the game it is today.

Todays awards are the first of many – we will post up new people every few weeks. No doubt we will miss people this first time around. Please bear with us and be patient – it is not because we don’t value your contribution, we just have human brains and cannot remember everything that happens every day.

If you know someone who has made a consistent, outstanding contribution to the NS2 community, nominate them here. Include as much information as you can! We have had some people nominated with no information: We don’t doubt these people are awesome, but we need some more info about exactly what they have done.

So without further ado, here is the first (and not exhaustive) round of awards!
