As most of you are aware, I have updated the website over the past few days. The reason we wanted to upgrade was the ability to integrate the website with teamspeak. With the upgrade completed I now have time to explain what this means for you guys.
What has changed on the website?:
Not a lot. The theme/skin might look different here and there, but in its core the website has not changed at all from a user point of view. However on the back end there have been a lot of performance and security improvements that you all benefit from.
Access your teamspeak tags from anywhere:
The TS integration allow us to link your TS tags to your website rank. This means that if you have your TS uuid configured on the website you will automatically get the corresponding tags on TS. If you have multiple devices you can link all the uuid's on the website to access your tags from anywhere without having to bother a CM or Admin for help.
Currently we have no way of knowing who belongs to what group, this means that initially when adding your uuid your tag might be reset to fng. To have this fixed contact a CM or Admin so they can add you to the correct group.
I have manually gone over the list of regulars on TS and given the ones I could find on the forums their regular tag. If you are still missing your tag contact a CM or Admin and give them the username you have used on the website.
Where can I find the teamspeak settings?:
The teamspeak settings are located under you account settings page (Click on your username in the top navigation bar top open the menu with the account settings option). The Teamspeak tab will allow you to add several uuid's, it will even explain where to find the uuid in teamspeak.
Will the teamspeak tags be coming back?:
Yes and No, we are working on expanding the current tags and ranks. However there are no plans to make the specialist tags return. The new ranks will have clear requirements and expectations that are being finalized as I write this. So expect more news on that sooner rather then later.
