Frequently Asked Questions
How i can recommend a map to be added in AvalonCS Servers?
Our community has a policy that configures the servers to, in the games in which it can be performed, download the maps and addons that we need from the Workshop and reducing the download of other elements that are not strictly necessary to zero.
Therefore, in games, whenever possible, our servers only use maps that are uploaded to the Steam Workshop. Steam has servers around the world dedicated exclusively to downloading content such as its client, updates and personalized user content, among many other functions, which allows content to be downloaded quickly from anywhere in the world.
To recommend a map, simply send us via email or Discord that you are recommending a map and the full URL of the map in the Steam Workshop (no hyperlinks or hidden links).
In games where this is not possible, contact the Head Admin.
Key Considerations for Staff Applications
It is important to consider the following factors when applying to be a member of our staff.
Importance of the disciplinary file: An impeccable disciplinary file is of utmost importance. Instances of multiple punishments, bans, involvement in racism, rudeness, or poor grammar may negatively impact your application.
In the event that you do not have a criminal record with us but have received a VAC ban or similar, it can be ignored, as long as the request includes a detailed explanation of why this punishment is imposed and a detailed justification that demonstrates a change in attitude.
Community Participation and Interaction: Proactive participation in our Discord server, prior positive interactions with staff members, and constructive contributions to the community will positively contribute to the strength of your application.
Address previous application rejections: If you have experienced previous application rejection, it is essential to address the reasons behind the rejection. It is necessary to demonstrate personal growth and improvements made since the previous application.
Application approval is not guaranteed: Submitting your application does not automatically guarantee acceptance. The selection process is meticulous and seeks candidates who not only enjoy serving but also demonstrate the ability to meet the demands and responsibilities associated with the staff position.
We wish you the best of luck with your application! Make sure you understand this guide thoroughly and take note of the key points. Examining previously accepted applications can serve as a valuable resource, offering insight into areas of possible improvement.
