April fools!!
__________

Our little friend the intel has been carried around babel 24/7 for so many years that 1 day, it decides to take revenge.



Our boxy scientist discovered it has an attraction for pink blocks, so we managed to bring it back to its routine.



Happy April fools players.

xx 1v1 Server- Exploration Update

1v1 Server- Exploration Update
‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾‾

We're happy to introduce a brand new update to the 1v1 server, which includes a brand new catwalk system!

All sector catwalks are connected to each other for you to watch your friends while they're playing!  You can teleport to a specific catwalk with the command /spectate <sector #>

There are also new, more informative, and more personalized Discord result messages!  Check out #1v1-results in our Discord to view results such as-

"DarioN wiped the floor with FerrariFlunker on nuketown by a score of 5-3. Try using your gun next time, FerrariFlunker."


Spoiler for Map view w/ catwalks:

Here are some in game photos of the new catwalks!

BAN PURGE

As we've done in the past, the aloha staff have decided it's time to purge a few of our AoS server bans again.  We agreed that these bans were irrelevant due to age and were clogging up the system, which was causing performance issues on the servers.  With special thanks to CapRex, we were able to complete the following:

  • All bans that were issued before January 1st, 2021 have been purged.    Total amount purged: 49,290 bans
    dates of removed bans span roughly 6 years, ranging from ~2014 to December 31, 2020

If you were previously banned and fit into the above description then this is your lucky day! :)  However, please don't take this chance for granted.  We remain active and still have the record of all old bans that can be crosschecked with present offenses.  If you are unsure if you are unbanned, please feel free to ask a staff member in the aloha.pk Discord to check for your ban.

aloha.pk was registered 10 years ago today on February 14, 2011. wow. :o i can't believe how fast time flies. at the time, it was rare to experience peaceful gaming communities that respected everyone fairly and recognized people for good behavior. too often i'd find myself involved with communities that had power-tripping know-it-all admins or bullying environments where carelessness was the road to popularity & power - and i had enough. i wanted a place where "hardcore" gamers (like myself at the time) could have a lax but serious gaming environment with roots of sincerity, respect, fairness, positive reinforcement, giving credit where due, etc. you know, the good ol' raw human stuff like how we'd treat friends & family in person, essentially "aloha" by definition. that's why... aloha... player killers. 8) and so as the story goes, on one lonely Valentine's Day in 2011, aloha.pk became an existence on a mission to bring together respectful gamers from anywhere in the world. :D

  • we began with a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 'Heavy Metal' 24/7 server - a huge open space 32 player FPS map full of drivable tanks & helos - in California that had lots of players connecting to it from Japan, so we duplicated the CA server as a second server in JP that became one of the most popular BFBC2 servers for a while (that's why some of our first members are Japanese).
  • a couple months later we became so heavily engrossed with Ace of Spades that nothing else mattered, not even BFBC2! :o at one point we were running 30+ full pyspades servers and our colo'd server got kicked out of a data center for bogging down their rack because they thought the 1,000+ simultaneous players were a massive DDOS attack. ::) to their defense early pyspades wasn't exactly optimized. thrilling times! fast forward to today and remarkably there's still plenty of fun to be had. nearly 10 years... it's a long lifespan for a game, and although we as a community are admittedly only as perfect as any human, overall i feel that our collective early involvement, organized staff operations, content & code creations, hosting services, and most importantly respectful attitudes had and continue to have a positive impact on the game. good job guys.
  • then of course there are the multiple awesome Minecraft worlds we built together, such as from the already shutdown 'crew and friends' server, and the newest alohacraft server which is live and can be played right now. check it out!

over the next 10 years all of our lives inevitably will change, but aloha.pk will still be here one way or another. we intend to continue our support for Ace of Spades and Minecraft as long as people want to play them. we're also aiming to expand our reach into other unique/interesting/creative games, technologies, and activities. please always feel free to share your finds & interests, maybe we'll be interested too and we can dream and build cool stuff together!

in the nearish future, web changes are planned that will help the community's social aspect grow, with the ultimate goal being to provide better recognition to everyone who contributes their time & effort. this community is where i met some of the most kind, smart, genuine, and interesting people that i know (friendships for life?) and with the right balance of careful thought and change i believe we can all have more of those kinds of connections.

regardless if you joined today, 5 years ago, or 10 years ago, this is probably still relatively early for aloha.pk. so aloha/welcome, and mahalo/thanks for all your past, present, and future time & effort. a decade ago i couldn’t have imagined a community as special as this and i know all of our combined efforts are the reason it became what it is. i am grateful. <3

xx Trusted Status Application Improvements!
January 03, 2021, 10:56:19 AM HST by FerrariFlunker
Trusted Status Application Improvements

Hello everyone!  The aloha.pk staff have decided to make improvements to the trusted application process.  The old way was flawed and was not working as intended; players weren't sure if their application was even being voted upon, whether it was denied, etc.

So, with that being said, we would like to introduce the new trusted status application process!
Here are a few of the improvements-

  • Applicants will create their own personal application thread- no more replying to a central application thread.
  • Every application will be voted upon by the aloha staff.
  • There are new, more meaningful questions in the application.
  • Applicants will receive a PM either way, whether their application was accepted or dismissed.
  • We have a great group of board Moderators that are willing and ready to process applications as quickly as possible!

We're hoping this new system will be more fluid to those who apply and will help the staff in granting trusted to those who deserve it.

NOTE:  Anyone who has applied using the old system will need to reapply if they are still interested in a trusted status. 
NOTE:  If you already have trusted status, you do not need to reapply. 

Please feel free to apply here, and make sure to reach out to any aloha.pk staff if you have any questions!  Thanks!

xx OpenSpades 0.0.12b
October 26, 2020, 04:32:10 AM HST by DemonDestroyer
This is an announcement that in a week (next Monday November 2nd) the version 0.0.12b of OpenSpades will no longer be allowed on our servers mainly due to the unfair SMG recoil that that client has.

Please upgrade your OpenSpades to at least 0.1.0. The link to the latest version of OpenSpades can be found at https://www.buildandshoot.com/download/.
