Oz Gaming Community Update

Oz Gaming Community Update

I’m sure over the past few months you guys noticed the drop in traffic to our TF2 servers. Besides everything that has expired within our community, popular gaming sources tell me there has been a significant drop in Steam portal traffic for TF2 over overall, it’s not just us. This drop in traffic has obviously affected our community. Some of this has to do with many of the new games released for the PC, PS4 and XBO. Besides that, over the past few months we’ve had a lot of changes throughout the Oz Gaming management. As for me, work has been kicking my butt. As this is a good thing for my wallet, not so much for my community. Same goes for Jab. When you add all these things together, it’s almost impossible to build a strong gaming community without our admins being active, interacting and recruiting on a daily basis. Maybe TF2 is slowly dying out? Don’t know.

You guys remember the major issue we had with GameServers.com? That forced me to relocate our TF2 servers and start new IPs, after 7 years that is never a good thing. Especially when you spend all that time advertising your IPs and the players adding them to their favorites and suddenly it’s no longer there. Not good. Then I found Fragnet.net. They were suppose to be our crutch, but 3 months later they failed us. I won’t go into detail, let’s just say their support is horrendous. Stay far away from Fragnet.net unless you don’t mind waiting 24-48 hours for someone to respond to your support tickets. I will be posting negative reviews about Fragnet.net just like I did for GameServers.com. What can I say, I don’t like it when people waste my time and money. Others will know about it.

With that being said, after 7 years I will be taking a short rest from running/managing/building/owning a gaming community. I plan on keeping www.ozgaming.net up and running until I figure out which game to go with for the next 7 years. 😉 Any ideas please post them in the comments below.

Whoever wants to use www.ozgaming.net, the forum and social media will be up and running, so feel free.

Please post your questions and ideas!

I love you guys!


This is the Steam account that stole an $85 unusual from [Oz] Hunter – http://steamcommunity.com/id/dasdasfg31 If you have any information on this please msg an Oz Admin or any one of our community members.

[Oz] Hunter: Hello Oz, Hunter here. How many of you trust me, how many of you have been with this community and like it, and know we do good things? How many of you enjoy to help your fellow player? Well in this case you can. Recently i was scammed out of an unusual by some hacker with bot accounts. Basically what happened was his bot account disguised as mine and took my unu from my trusted friend, Redneck. No, Redneck is not the scammer, his bp doesn’t have the unu either. So what i have done is report and make a steam support ticket, but i know that’s not enough. I am linking you to his profile, report him, make tf2 discussions on the tf2 hub shaming him, make everyone know who he is and how he is not trustable. Make sure he is banned and he can’t do this to anyone else, and help me get my unu back. If enough of us file reports and tickets, steam will have no choice but to pay attention to us. If you help me out, I can help you in the future as well. A Lot of the regulars on the oz servers know me well and know who i am to a somewhat personal level. Don’t believe me? Talk to Andrew, Redneck, Slayer, Wii, Trixy, this list can go on and on. Anyways I won’t ramble too much, here is a link to ihs profile, report him and help me out. http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198160097481
