Hey everyone!

No, don't freak out, we're not shutting down or making any other drastic changes. Not right now, at least.

Following some research and investigation, the Internal Affairs team and I have concluded that the cause of the missing influx of new players in the community is because Lancer, as it stands right now, has poor exposure in the Half-Life 2 Roleplay community as a whole, mainly due to the fact that our server appears under the "HL2RP" server category, where there are few, if any, servers (except PostBellum) that appear under there, as opposed to the "IX: HL2RP" category.
Now, you may be wondering, "Well, if that's the case, why don't you rename the category to IX: HL2RP, or switch to Helix?"
Well, the first one would get our server blacklisted from the server browser and porting right now, while would probably attract some more attention to us as it is a more viewed category, is not something viable that we can do, at this time at least.

This means that at the moment, the only source of new players and our way of expanding if by you, the players, spreading the word of the server to your friends and acquaintances. So, we need your help in order to expand and grow. In an effort to make this process more enticing, from this point on, until stated otherwise, for every friend that you invite to the server (that actually joins the server, plays and stays active), you will receive 1 week of supporter status, completely free of charge. This can also stack up, so if you invite two new players, you will get 2 weeks of supporter status, 3 players 3 weeks, and so on and so forth. Additionally, if the player you invite stays active on the server, they will also receive a week of free supporter status, as a form of a welcoming gift.

For any questions or concerns regarding anything said above, feel free to get in contact with me.
