    1 Response to FFS Gaming
    It is no surprise that we have never been on good terms throughout our rivalry, however, we have never published any hatred against them. But after their most recent public statement about us we decided to no longer tolerate their hypocritical behavior and respond back to them.
    The reason behind "hacking in"
    To begin with, we will confess that we indeed have gotten an unauthorized access to one of their member's Skype account with an aim to monitor their private conversations.
    Since the early days we were getting notified by different people about their leadership getting confidential information regarding our development processes directly from our team. Despite us executing numerous procedures, from privately verifying less trustworthy staff not sharing any information with them to persuading our members to update their passwords, we kept receiving those bothersome messages. It became an urgent problem when our development got disrupted to an extent where no progress could be made. This is when a few individuals together with airplaNe have initiated the idea of gaining access to their private conversations with the hope of finding the snitch. Unfortunately, not a single recognizable name has been mentioned there. We started to cross out the invalid scenarios until we were left with just one - Dalmata being a fraudulent persona, with artificial background, that was very likely used directly by FFS' leadership to attain our confidential information. Considering this fake identity we were able to connect the remaining dots. Please read airplaNe|6s' reply below to understand how we were able to figure things out. Since the day we got rid of this spy, we have not been informed of any information leakage yet. You want to call it a coincidence?

He accessed their development server (with the credentials he found through Alin's Skype account) without hiding his real identity. Despite us being irresponsible for his independently carried-out actions, we accept the consequences he has brought us to as a representative of our clan.
    Other biased allegations
    This statement about us is by far the most hypocritical, biased and nonsensical.
    It is absolutely worthwhile mentioning the spam that was caused by more or less four of our members, in combination to a much greater number of their regular spectators, was a one-off case. Just this fact alone makes their statement sound absurd, considering players spam during and after every event. They should have either provided evidence of this happening more than once or not have mentioned it at all due to its ridiculousness. Persuading people to think we have done it purposely and repeatedly to cause disturbance during their events is sneaky and disgraceful.
    Unproven DDoS accusations is another allegation showing their lack of judgement. We have never made a public statement, accusing them of DDoS attacks, which would be the only scenario authorizing them to proclaim this. However, particular sources provided us with information inducing us to believe there is a real possibility of their involvement.
    We tend to believe they are basing this statement on our members' negligible public comments, which in return, allows us to claim they are harassers and slanderers - deliberately spreading lies to damage our members' reputation.
    Moreover and perhaps the most hypocritical statement is us persuading their Squad members to leave. We demand for evidence of this, otherwise this statement can be thrown to the trash bin next to the previous two. In fact, we are able to contradict this statement:
    Personal conversation with DRiVeR whilst he was still a FFS member: [1] [2] [3] Staying objective about our former members trying to join FFS Personally preventing Rider from any ideas of rejoining us SheldoN talking to airplaNe about his leaving SheldoN's and WW's conversation (airplaNe's examination) My private chat with SheldoN about rejoining The reason their statement appears hypocritical is because they were the ones to actually recruit our former members to their "Squads". Not to mention that although indirectly, but unquestionably their rude and dishonest public comments about us have persuaded countless individuals to either abandon our community or never even consider joining it - consequently preventing our potential growth.
    Jumping back to the end of 2015 - we were just a couple of steps away from formalizing our arrangements of FOTL community's resettlement to Sixth Sense. By surprise, FFS came into the context and offered them their firmly established platforms over ours. Despite of this occurring over two years ago - the truth of FOTL representatives despising the decision Tails accepted has never been acknowledged. Perhaps the fact that those independent teams have re-established DDC and thereby separated themselves from FFS again only highlights the discomfort they have experienced in there.
    It is quite ironic that the founder of the tournament they have unauthorizedly pocketed is now prohibited from participating in it too.
    Let's Turn the Tables
    Their hypocrisy is beyond the limits of our understanding. The absurd this community constantly shares, in combination to their actions against us, simply contradicts these words.
    To begin with, we accepted Tails' direct invitation to participate in Lucky Seven. We did not only support the idea of the tournament, but also helped its organisation. We happily cooperated and even refereed some of the matches. Now the reason we decided to withdraw from it was continuous provocations by their leadership. It is essential to highlight that these provocations were carried out during our crucial matches, thus affecting our performance. It is also worthy of note that I have never been issued any moderator rights for unspecified reasons. It was never our intention to resign from this tournament, and it is unfortunate that certain individuals were affected by it.
    Lucky Seven was not the only platform they have used to disrupt us. Whilst we were releasing the sneak peeks of our 1.0, their so called innovators managed to thieve and redevelop a multitude of our ideas - significantly reducing the number of unique game-play features we wanted to be exclusive to our server. After the evident failure of our 1.0, we had to live through never ending player-base comparisons to other long-established servers, witness hate-promoting votes about us in-front of hundreds of players inside their server and be victims of their gallery posts specifically made to turn people against us. Yet they claim they have tried to stay neutral towards us. If we would sincerely have ever had any harmful intentions against FFS, we would have accepted Jamie's offer to collaborate (get a hold of their databases which could undoubtedly be used against them).
    Our vocabulary is sadly insufficient to describe their unprofessional behavior and it is a huge unfortunate to see people get mislead by their untruthful statements about us. The invalidity and vagueness in their argumentation shows a lack of points justifying our permanent ban. They have been destroying real friendships here whereas a half of their clan roster do not even know each other. From this point onward and with the aim to completely terminate any future interactions with this disgusting community we are going to issue permanent bans to their representatives - including participation in our events and future server. Oh and because we find an infinite sense in their tendency to unban the resigning members - we are going to emulate their conditions. 
    2 Exposing the Two-Faced
    One of the most difficult questions to ever answer has always been - is FFS Gaming the best racing community or is FFS Gaming the most corrupted community? After years of unbiased observation, personal experiences and various information leakages we believe we have the answer. FFS Gaming is indeed the most corrupted community this multiplayer has ever had to provide shelter to.
    Let's start off with their notorious leadership, namely Sniper and WW. Sniper, who we should rather refer to as a blatant money-whore, is undeniably the most corrupted leader to ever exist. Besides the content of airplaNe's reply and next to spying & attempting to prevent other communities' development progresses, publicly promoting hatred against them and infinite severe provocations, this money-whore is also good at using his privileges and the position within the community to proceed with unlawful and morally wrong affairs, including:
    An agreement to perform a wrongful act against an innocent player for 10€ An attempt to sell an unban shamelessly for 50€ Recruiting a member in exchange for CS:GO skins worth a tremendous amount, offering individuals to join FFS with a fee of 1,500€ and offering Junior's rights for 200€   Old case with Bootje (attempt to sell an unban for 20€) And just generally attempting to make amusing amounts of money for the smallest deeds
      On the other hand we have WW - the wannabe Bauss. Perhaps he is less of a money-whore, but surely more of a bossy character whose arrogance signifies his lack of earthiness and naturalness. Treating other hard-working communities with absolutely no respect whilst the mister himself started leading FFS Gaming long after its establishment and successes of other individuals. No, we are not trying to imply he is taking the credit for what FFS is today, in fact he is sincerely trying to further improve the community in many unique ways. Examples include reproduction of features which we have first put in operation during our official launch and a dozen more resemblances that you can find between their current forum and our 2.0 forum revelation topics from back in 2016. Does anyone still wonder why (3/4) has never been published? Perhaps provoking own members during important clan wars and being unable to accept criticism are other great characteristics of this spectacular clan leader.
     
    Considering the leadership failing to display professionalism and discipline itself, we would be wrong to deem that the members are any better. Despite FFS Gaming introducing their "Squads"  system (which is nowhere near successfully achieving the intended purpose), they are still experiencing a lack of players. Recent events show how as a member of "Squads"  you can join forces with literally any irrelevant player from another team in order to help you in the battlefield against other clans and most importantly - get away with it even after being reported to the leadership.
    Perhaps new members leaving them and confirming the opinions of the former FFS Gaming members, some of whom have formed this community almost 3 years ago, means that regardless of who joins them or puts endless efforts in attempts to change them, FFS Gaming will remain the most corrupted community out there. Yet their whole community is blindly following the words of the authority because if they would stand against them - they would end up banned. It is nothing else than a poorly organised dictatorship and we feel sorry for Tails & Micra (and a few lower rank administrators) whose efforts due to other individuals' pathetic actions get squished to an extent where they have no value. The two-faced, real criminals since 2011. #fuckFFS 
    3 Unwished Circumstances
    Throughout our almost three-year existence we have always been disputing with those trying to harm us. Needless to say, those disputations were always bringing some irritating consequences that placed us in unwished circumstances.
    As a result of FFS leadership's another attempt to bring us down, this time with much more endeavoring, we have been going through a lot of clutter inside the team: our development was temporarily terminated, 6 clan members have left us & 2 were forcibly expelled, the cheerful atmosphere was shattered and we were being referred to as a clan of "hackers". All of these happenings have made our hands slip off the wheel and we started to get away from our designated goals. We were facing perhaps the most critical condition we have ever been in and therefore I was forced to return to everyday activities with the aim to get rid of the mess that has been residing in our community for a while now.
    Additionally, the side project - Battlegrounds (PUBG) - which we have alluded on the 5th of November has been completely cancelled as a result of nGear's sudden inactivity followed by other PUBG servers releasing updates that consisted of the exceptional features we were developing for our own server in order to make it one of its kind.
    The bottom line is that we are unfortunately unable to share any news regarding our 2.0 project today. However, I can confirm that everything has been kick-started again. We will deliver what we have been planning to despite the prevailing circumstances. 
    4 Staff Changes
    The leadership has always dedicated a lot of attention towards the management of our staff. We believe the way we distribute positions plays a significant role in terms of achieving our defined goals and dealing with any obstacles we may encounter on the way.
    Just last week we have performed a major staff overhaul, which involved: promotions, demotions and one removal from the team. We have also introduced new internal clan roles alongside the complete membership-handling criterion that we will be reflecting on when judging any situation involving our members. This criterion includes the principles of handling join requests, memberships and returning members.
    It is fair to state that our staff has never been more organised internally. Nevertheless, the present changes still keep us a long way off having a totally satisfactory staff and therefore it is important to continue with the improvements of its organisational structure. The first pivotal update will land very soon.
    Closure of Join Requests
    Reflecting on our current state, both internally and externally, we decided to perform a private debate regarding the closure of join requests. Although we came across a few reasonable arguments against their closure, the debate has ended with majority of the staff supporting this idea. Here are a couple of relevant points leading to this decision:
    Ability to apply more changes to the current roster without applicants getting in the way Ability to devote a hundred-percent focus to the development of 2.0 An opportunity to restore our standards - after a fixed period of paused recruitment we expect more quality applicants. Also, this period will enable certain individuals to finalize their currently-uncertain decision about trying to join us by being able to monitor our progress from this day onward. The recruitment will be resumed after our 3rd anniversary, which means people will be able to post their join requests on the 20th of June. Invitees may be considered even earlier.
    Significant Regains
    Like with almost every recruitment we are bringing certain faces back home. Former members, in particular the ones below, will always come before anyone new simply because they do not require any time to reintegrate into the team and therefore can be put into action the same minute they rejoin. Please welcome back the following individuals who have left huge marks in the history of Sixth Sense:
    RoNNiE#|6s - Former DM Manager Zoilo|6s - Former WFF Manager Hidin|6s - Former Developer Fresh Blood
    As it was probable - we have recruited some new trials to revitalize our gaming productivity with their energy. These candidates have both mastered the criterion of a perfect applicant and achieved the highest possible percentage of positive votes - 100%! We are more than just happy to house the following two extraordinary individuals with bright and colorful backgrounds in this multiplayer:
     
    New Trial xRAGE  (  saudi arabiasa)
    02.01.2018
    Application Date 100%
    Positive Votes New Trial DRiVeR  (  hungaryhu)
    25.02.2018

We came across many issues; the main one being how Sixth Sense 1.0 didn't go as planned. We've overlooked every issue and problem to progress forward and reach our goals. During 2017 we've progressed, not only in terms of our upcoming 2.0 server, but as a team and as a family. The year consisted of many ups and downs; from members leaving due to clan failure at the start, to dominating other clans in the battleground. Understanding our position after failing, we're progressing forward.
    Clan Wars   
    We're safe to say we've achieved one out of the four third year goals; winning 500 clan wars! Not bad considering we've gone past our goal, carrying only 31 losses. That's 1 loss every 16 clan wars!

    Recruitment   
    To start of the year, we have decided to bring along five, highly suited people into our team:
    Martis|6s - former leader of Elite Players and known for his tremendous versatility. Welcome aboard, Martynas. SheldoN|6s - one of the best HDM players in this game. Despite your previous short stay we are glad to have you back. Tryhard|6s - Experienced Destruction Derby player with pleasing activity and communication skills. Girard|6s - Experienced Destruction Derby player with pleasing activity and communication skills. Bari|6s - an old face back to reinforce the team. Welcome back! Sneak Peek   
    To conclude, here is a small image of what you guys will expect in our upcoming Sixth Sense 2.0. Our development team are working hard for the community!

To begin with, we are closing down and leaving our beloved, but unfortunately unsuccessful 1.0 behind, exactly one year after its public beta release. But don't feel dispirited because in every end, there is also a beginning - we are proud to commence THE ERA OF 2.0!
    With the closure of version 1.0, we are refocusing more internal resources on supporting and solidifying the new 2.0 platform. Perhaps though, the most significant thing about 2.0 is what comes next. We now have a solid platform for future development. With the new modern framework, new features and improvements can be written much quicker than ever before. In addition, we have been using new tools and techniques within our development team for faster development, testing and deployment of new releases.
    Before we get too far, let me just state now that there is no expected (or even estimated) release date for 2.0 yet. While we always have internal guidelines, timeframes and milestones, we do not communicate these publicly until we are absolutely sure they are as accurate as possible. The 2.0 will be a major overhaul, effectively a rewrite of most areas from the ground up, and there are many factors that can affect delivering within expected due dates.
    Let's Recall!
    We have prepared a video that reflects the key milestones, up to this day, that we have went through together, in Sixth Sense. The purpose is very straightforward and it is to illustrate the reason we are introducing 2.0 to you today.
    Please enjoy!
    This video commences the Era of 2.0
    Video Timeline: Developing 1.0 Introducing 1.0 Grand Opening Facing the Failure Planning 2.0 2.0 Sneak Peek The timeline is self-explanatory!

    We are no longer intending to build hype up and reveal the majority of surprises we have prepared for you through a series of sneak peeks. Instead, we will publish a Development Channel that will enable the interaction between our community users and our developers with a purpose to collaboratively produce a server & forum you would simply adore! Nevertheless, we will share some of the 2.0 traits every now and then, just so you're given a brief insight of what's to come!
     
    A side project
    2.0 has not been our only focus!
    The past couple of weeks we have been working on two projects simultaneously. In short, we realized that after closing 1.0, we will also eliminate the possibility of connecting with our users inside the multiplayer, and therefore we decided to develop a casual server which we will launch before 2.0. We hope it will be enjoyable & active, and thus psychologically reducing the waiting time for 2.0. A topic covering this project in much more depth will be published soon, stay tuned!
     
    The Beginning of 2.0 Era
    It comes with the first minor change, which nevertheless plays a very important role in representing our future 2.0

    Updated Clan Color  
    Sixth Sense 2.0 New Color: #00D07C  
    Sixth Sense 1.0 Old Color: #A9FF9E  
    The new color is already being used across different areas of 2.0 (both server and forum), and mark our words when we say it blends in just perfectly! For those who wonder about the reasoning of this update, make sure to read airplaNe|6s' reply in the comments below.
