Dear community,
Gas prices have been rapidly increasing and our old rusty servers aren't like those Teslas out there: new servers (very expensive) are electric powered and cannot run gameservers for old games (such as css and csgo), old servers run on gas but support all games released before ~2015.
This has lead to a significant surge in costs for our in-house team to continuously refill the server tanks with the cheapest gas we can find, however with the uncertainty surrounding these times, we can't guarantee a future for our servers without some drastic measures.
For this reason and because of our love for the environment, we will begin shutting down our servers at 9pm until 6am (21:00-06:00) every day, starting today, so that our servers get some time to cool down, save on gas and contribute to slowing down climate change.
Hopefully this will also shorten those insane long knives on CS:S and will lead to more precise timings on CS:GO.

Drop a like if you too support our fight against the forced replacement of gas powered servers, so vital for gameservers.

Game on my friends!

If I told you, I'd have to kill you.
Also take note that the easter bunny will collaberate with santa claus during this month and hand out free eggs/gifts to people who donate #greengas for santas sled as the cost of upkeeping the reindeers has drastically increased since russia invaded ukraine. Therefor there Will be No christmas presents this year. Thank you for your understanding - santas little helper

I would suggest another timeframe. We have a much lower player activity from 01:00 to 10:00. Therefore you should rather shutdown V3 around that time. And V1 and mg server are quite useless. We should switch them off and only switch them on for events/meetups. This way we can keep V3 alive for much longer!
