    I am impressed with UWE customer service for this amazing game they have created. Most game companies would not offer refunds but for those people with their "reasons"; even after countless hours of game play UWE will still offer a refund. Now UWE goes a step further in recognizing the NS2 community with the Squad Five Awards. I am extremely pleased with the direction UWE and NS2 is heading. UWE will be a company that EA, Activision, BioWare, and Valve will look up to in the coming years.

    ICONS!!! :)
    Thanks Hugh. This is awesome. Motivates me to try earning that silver icon one day!

    I wonder what it takes to get a gold icon... I think Max deserves one. His hat deserves a platinum award at least. :D

    I hope this thread doesn't derail into "this guy deserves more" and "this other guy doesn't deserve anything" discussions.

    Congratulations and great job to all the other guys. :)


    EDIT: I just saw that you spelt my name incorrectly again! Bad Hugh! :P

    I think the most amazing part of the names being listed is there is possible only one person I recognize from being very active in the old NS1 days.

    Remember, we know this is not exhaustive guys - keep nominating. We know we have missed many valued community members with this first pass, be patient with us, we will flesh it out as the weeks go on and more and more names are put forward.

    Hi Hugh!

    This game has come along in my life since the versción ns 1.4 when I accidentally got a HL mod which I became hopelessly addicted. I had worked with the Worldcraft then would be the hammer and despite knowing nothing about editing or programming took it as a personal challenge and made some maps for ns.

    Knowing that some of my maps were played on U.S. servers as badserver was an achievement for me.

    In ns2 I was simply amazed by the work they are doing, could not stay out of this wonderful game that slowly but surely taking shape.

    I really like to create and live what I created, what better than an environment where you cross it and interact in it.

    So thanks for the Squad Five icon. I am more than happy with my little icon!!!

    THANKS!

    Thanks and congrats to all! Although, I fear I should decline this as much as I appreciate it. Playa_2B is the generous provider of the 156 West servers.

    Wow, thanks UWE and to whomever nominated me, and congrats to everyone else awarded.

    I don't really feel like I deserve to be amongst the mappers and modders that have helped shape and expand the game itself, but hopefully I will be able to put in as much time as they have for us eventually. Maybe when my own map is complete.

    Shouldn't these guys be in a different category to the people that have put in countless hours making mods, maps, bug fixing and server running?

    Sorry but if you're going to dish one out to people that run their own clan, create posts about balance discussions and are helpful to others in game you would see half the community in squad 5. No offence to the guys that I quoted but I thought squad 5 was 'outstanding effort' by community members.

    Kind of agree with this.
    No offense to anyone, but some of these people deserve it alot more than others.
    Where is the line?

    Being a good role-model is usually it's own reward, but the badge they receive isn't a ViP Pass (at least not yet)

    It's almost in a literal sense a "high-5" and I don't see anything wrong with it

    People voted and this is the results. . .

    I wasn't having a go, I think its a great idea and I love what NS2HD is doing for Natural Selection 2.

    I just think there is a big step between helping people out in game and creating a popular map.

    Whoever gets the awards, this is a fantastic idea that will help to encourage and motivate the NS2 community! Love it!

    Congratulations to everyone who was awarded, some people have put huge amounts of their own time (and sometimes money) into NS2 and it is great to see their effort recognised. Great work guys!

    Its irrelevant. People in squad 5 are chosen by the community, nobody else.
