In a status report last month, Bohemia Interactive put out a call to hear about the DayZ clans and communities out there. They would select the top 3 and give them free server hosting for one year as well as the option of a private shard to go with it. Of course, we couldn't resist this opportunity and we had to enter ourselves into the mix. There were so many entries it took the developers an extra two days after the scheduled announcement date to come up with the winners. I am proud to say that we are one of the top three communities chosen out of hundreds and hundreds of entries. The announcement was done in the most recent status report found here.
Our current server costs about $97 per month to keep up and running. With this free server we will save nearly $1200 so this is an absolutely huge prize! We will now have our own private server as well, which is something we have always wanted but wasn't financially viable. Congratulations to everybody in DayZ division, you guys and gals deserve it!

EDIT: I have received multiple requests to view the entry that we submitted to win the competition. That can be found on the third post of this forum topic: http://taw.net/forums/t/15070.aspx
Today 5 members of the Insurgency division: Nem, cOntact, Tackshooter, TheLastDalek, and Zabster spent 9 hours playing in a Insurgency tournament hosted by the xtcr clan. The tournament had 2 brackets with $200 for the winners of the winners bracket and $100 for winners of the losers bracket.
Our team started 13:00 Eastern time (12:00 Central) to start participating in this tournament. They started off in their first match against a mixed team from the clans Casualty and ***. Their first match didn't go in their favour but, they got moved into the losers bracket. Through their many matches in the losers bracket, they faced many formidable foes but, they managed to triumph over them and make their way to the finals. In the finals, the faced the Team Famous clan who gave them a long and tough run for their money. TAW was able to beat them and these 5 members have won $100 from the losers bracket of this tournament.
A huge Hoah!!! (or URAH!!!) is well deserved for these members. Great job guys! You made us all proud today and we thank you for taking the time to partake in this tournament.
