The Gaming Forums is a forum for gamers by gamers!
We host tournaments on all of the popular games with prizes, For Example we have hosted a Modern Warfare 3 tournament which had prizes worth up to £70!
For Any other of our events will be posted below.
Any Site wide updates will also be posted below!
So a few questions have popped up with regards to the 2 sites, so I answer them.
Why two sites?
So I've decided that the MGO community needs its own site, not only to make it a lot eaiser to manage tournaments and events but also to manage the high amount of topics and posts which comes from a large community dedicated to one game.
What will happen to TGF?
TGF will continue to run as normal except that there will be no MGO3 Section. TGF was designed and will always be a general gaming forum, we may even be doing events for other popular games on the site!
Will some features on MGOL be brought to TGF?
Yes, I decided to use MGOL as a clean slate in which to work out the bugs with both the Tournaments system and the live stream system, which will be brought to TGF once the open beta of MGOL is over (aka when all the bugs have been squashed).
What will happen to MGO3 discussion on TGF?
So currently we have one really active topic and that will be the limit for MGO3 discussion on TGF, if you want to discuss MGO3 in more detail then go on MGOL, We give you the easiest way to get on there - using your current username and password which took a lot of work so please take advantage of that.
What will happen to General Gaming Discussion on MGOL?
It will be limited in the way that no games will be given extra sections, any really popular games will have a section on TGF as your MGOL username and password will work on TGF.
So I signup on MGOL, do I need to signup on TGF too?
No, as part of the system when you register on MGOL you also do the same on TGF. The two forums are linked by the user database so as long as you have an account on one forum you can access both!
When will MGOLeague leave Open Beta?
When MGO3 goes into Beta, between the time of us launching the open beta of MGOL and Konami opening the beta of MGO3 is when we will be doing a vast amount of improvements to the site with your recommendations so if you have an idea post them in the thread on MGOLeague.
Can I be staff on MGOL?
As the two forums are linked at the hip you will be staff on both sites, just fill out an application form as usual on TGF and we will go from there. Please don't PM the Admin Team about becoming staff.
Why MGOLeague and not MGOForums ect?
I decided to go back into the past with regards to the name of the site, the first "MGOs" (Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops and Metal Gear Online 1) both had sites built for them by Konami. They were called MPOLeague and MGS3League. MPOLeague was the first MGS forum I ever joined so I decided to name our new site after that as I missed MGO1 unfortunately.
That is all I can think off the top of my head, just remember guys that no recommendation that will improve either of the sites will go unheard, unless they are really stupid (I'm talking to you Kez). Just post them up in either the section on TGF for Site Recommendations or the topic on MGOLeague.
MGOLeague Open Beta is now ... well ... OPEN
Guys remember when your logging in for the first time and you already have an account on TGF please DO NOT SIGN UP, Click Login and use your TGF Username and Password!
much importance Wow
very mgo3 amaze
Ok that aside!
We need you to test out all of the buttons all of the features and all that good stuff as we need to know whats broken ect.
New themes will be being added soon to MGOLeague so don't worry the one on there is the beta one.

On Saturday 6th of December at 2AM (UK Time) Kojima himself will be announcing MGO3, something that I know you are all excited about and have been waiting for.
So why is this an announcement? Well because of:
We will be launching our open beta of the site at 8AM on the 6th of December!
So keep your eyes peeled for the site to open!
Your TGForums Username and Password will allow for instant registration!
Hope to see you on there soon!
The Gaming Forums turned 5 This Week!
This community has now been around for half a decade! Which is amazing to think of as we've gone through quite a lot together.
Servers for MGO being taken down, lots of attacks against the site and financial issues.
Even with those bumps in the road we are still here alive and well.
Thanks for sticking around this long we've got a lot of things to do to keep the site up and running for the next 5 Years.
Tomorrow (19/08/14) at 7PM BST the Gaming Sections will disappear temporarily for a few hours as they will be re-organized as the amount of sections we have at the moment is not needed.
So I think that its better to have one topic full of the information you need to know and allowing you to ask questions about the development of MGOLeague (I will not be talking about any new features on the site as that is being kept on the hush hush).
What is MGOLeague?
MGOLeague stands for Metal Gear Online League, It will be a website dedicated to MGO3 (The online mode for the yet to be released Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain). The site will be taylor made for MGO discussion and event organizing.
Why split MGO3 discussion into its own site?
I know that this community once apon a time came from MGO2 so to stop MGO3 discussion overflowing TGF in which at its heart is a general gaming forum which it will continue to be even after the launch of MGOL.
Why the MGOLeague name?
This is a part of the MGS Online history that I'd like to bring forward to a new site, MGS3League and MPOLeague both had forums in which were very active, I was a member of MPOLeague so that name kinda stuck!
What will happen to all my stuff on TGF?
Absolutely nothing will happen all of your posts and everything else as TGF Is still going to be around, If you want a general breakdown of what will follow you go here:
When will MGOLeague be launched?
I am looking to launch the site at the same time (Or a week before) the MGO3 Beta, The site itself is in final closed beta so when MGO3 Beta is launched MGOLeague will go into an Open Beta phase in which bugs may cause issues on the site but thats what beta is for. Keep an eye out for topics about this,
I'm permanently suspended from TGF, Will that effect me logging into MGOL.
No, all previously permanently suspended members of TGF will be allowed to join MGOL but to stop people from abusing this trust you will start with 11 warning points.
If you have any questions about MGOLeague please post them below!
Please do not debate in this thread, only ask questions.
So, What will be moving over to MGOLeague and what will not?
So as you know your logins are going to be the same on MGOLeague as they are on TGF, but the main question what will move over from TGF to MGOL.
What will move:
- Your Username and Password
- Your Display Name
- 11 Warning points if you are permanently suspended.
What will not move:
- Your bans.
- Your current warning level.
- Your signature and avatar.
- Your reputation level.
- Your Post Count.
MGOLeague will be a fresh start for 99% of the community, so for that reason most of your statistics will not follow you.
The only reason for the 11 warning points is plainly due to issues which will arise again, if those members want to stay a member on MGOL They will follow the rules.
I know some of these things are annoying that you will loose but i think allowing previously permanently suspended members to join the new forum and your loosing your warning levels will be a good trade off.
Thanks for Reading.
As you may have noticed TGF Hasn't had any ads for around 2-3 months.
So a few reasons for this one being one which you guys will most appreciate.
The First is that Google seams to like to suspend our Adsense account for almost no reason. OMG There is a picture of a girl which is questionable ... which they aren't naked or anything like that its apparently not "Family Friendly".
So me getting notified about another Adsense suspension is a weekly occurrence for this site which is why we removed a few threads for a while which did not solve anything.
Recently Google decided not to forward a few notification E-Mails and suspend my account, Which I have been fighting ever since, Every single appeal attempt has failed due to more and more "Questionable content" being nothing more than a WWE GIF.
So the last appeal failed over something stupid and at that point I decided to say "Fuck it" If I followed the Google rules I'd have to remove 40% of the sites content.
So the the Second Reason, I'd have to make this site allot stricter with regards to moderation and remove 40% of the sites content to make it "Google" and "Family Friendly"
Gaming communities are not "Family Friendly" and they never will be, Google forcing this down our throats is absolutely ridiculous.
So what does this mean for the site, will it die? Will MGOLeague be stopped? Both Answers No.
However we need your support, Please donate to the site as it costs quite allot a year to run the site.
MGOLeague development is currently on track for release at any time ready for the beta of Metal Gear Online 3.
This site has been developed with you guys in mind, we have features in which other forums will not have. We can not announce much (Otherwise our competitors could make what I said above wrong).
The new forum will be open to all members including members who have previously been banned on this site, they will however start on 10 Warning Points (50% of total warning points). Meaning that they will need to behave otherwise they will be banned again.
Website development costs allot of money, buying licences and webspace is expensive and we need your help in both funding and moderation.
1. We need people to apply for staff on MGOLeague:
We need Moderators and Tournament Staff as we will be looking at Leagues and Tournaments as being a key aspect of the website (Hence its name).
If you are able to help with either of these jobs please fill out applications:
This site is no longer funded by advertisements, in fact it hasn't been ad driven for the past few months but I will get into that in another post.
Site Development takes time and money, I would rather not have to ask people for money but I would rather give you guys more relaxed forums without Google's bureaucracy saying we can't have certain things posted on the site which I say hell to it.
So if you are willing to donate to the site and MGOLeagues development then use the donation button on the forum index.
So yes, Please apply for the role of Moderator and Tournament Staff!
Web Developer & Admin
The Gaming Forums
The site will be offline soon for about 30-45 mins as we are updating some of the server software behind the scenes.
This is to bring the compatibility of the website back up to standard!
