  • The Ghosts will Rise Again!



    Attention all Elite Stealth Troops!


    Ghost Mode has fallen silent recently and it's now time to raise the volume to bring the ghosts back to the forefront!

    Cross Fire is proud to bring you a month full of events and competitive play involving Ghost Mode! We are kicking off this Months Ghost Mode action with an "iron-man" like ribbon which is available to be won for all players.
    Silent Soldier
    Play in 30+ Hours of Ghost Mode in March 2012.
    Check the event page to track your GM hours in March!

    But we aren't stopping there. We are also holding the March of the Ghosts II: Clan Tournament and Ghost Mode Event!

    Compete on the Clan Server throughout the month of march in Ghost Mode games and fight for an exclusive can't-be-bought Permanent Gold Katana!

    To see the full rule set for the tournament read the information below. Participate in Ghost Mode games on the Clan Server and the 2 clans with the highest win% over the course of March will compete in a 1 game playoff for some amazing prizes.


    And if that wasn't enough, Regular Ghost Mode enthusiasts will get a chance to earn some extra prizes throughout the month of March starting with an Event running from March 2nd - March 4th.
    Ghost Mode Kickoff Event
    March 2nd 12:01am - March 4th 11:59pm
    Play in 15 Ghost Mode games and achieve 150 Ghost Mode kills
    Win 7 Day Combat Axe
    Check the Event Page for details on all the upcoming Ghost Mode events!

    March of the Ghosts II: Clan Server Ghost Mode Tournament
    Matches will run from March 1st to March 31st
    Please note the following update:

    We have records of all players join/leave/create histories with Clans. We will be addressing the potential possibility of players who are leaving clan A to created clan B with the goal of maintaining a perfect record within the tournament.

    As of right now there are 6 clans who have been disqualified from the tournament (for win farming). It is not fair to anyone that we release these names at the moment. Suffice to say if you are manipulating the ladder (this includes manipulating your own record) to put yourself at the top you will be disqualified.

    We will maintain the integrity of the competition and respect the true competitors at the end of the tournament, even if it costs us brownie points with the community by adjusting the rules.

    All clans who are at the top are undergoing intense scrutiny through our records to make sure that they played fair and they deserve a chance to fight for the exclusive Gold Katana prize.

    Also note, that tie breakers can become a factor within this tournament, Match Points and Clan Point tie breakers almost always benefit existing clans who have stayed together to play throughout the month.
    In order for your clan to qualify and for matches to count towards your Ghost Mode record, the following requirements must be met for each game.
    • Your clan must have a minimum of 5 members.
    • You must play a minimum of 30 Ghost Mode games (minimum 4 players per side) during the month of March.
    • Matches can be played on any ghost mode map for a minimum of a 9 round game (18 rounds for both halves) on the clan server.
    • Valid Ghost Mode matches will be counted as games which are played at a minimum of 4 versus 4 (4 players on each side) and end with at least one team having 4 players on one side.
    • If you or part of your team leaves the game, it will still count as long as your opponent is still fielding a team of above 4 players.
    • Leaving and Disconnecting are counted as the same thing, we realize this creates a couple of very rare and odd scenarios which will invalidate a match if both sides disconnect to below 4 people, however we feel that to maintain the integrity of the tournament this rule must be applied.
    • Teams who leave a match will suffer a loss.
    • Win% will be calculated based on the number of wins and losses that meet the qualifying requirements. Note that match ties will count towards the total number of games (affecting win%) but will not count as a win. This is the equivalent of a tie = loss for both sides.
    • Win% ties at the end of march will be broken with the number of Match Points the clan has achieved in all modes/games during the month of march.
    • Second Tie breaks will be the number of Clan Points the clan achieved in all modes/games during the month of march.
    • Players must play a minimum of 10 GM games on the clan server in the month of March to qualify themselves to win the main prizes listed below.

    You can track your wins and losses by using the new match history on the Clan Page. Note that this history only shows the last 7 days. However you can see your clans record as the month progresses by visiting the Event Page! Throughout the month we will post the standings for the top 10 clans based on the requirements above.
    • The top 2 clans with the highest win% will be announced on April 2nd. And they will face off on a single Ghost Mode match on April 6th (or 7th depending on agreed schedule) to determine the winner.
    • Z8Games will contact the top 2 clans via the Clan Leader and all clan lieutenants via the Z8Games support page between April 2nd and April 4th.
    • Winning Clans will be asked to provide a potential play time on April 6th or April 7th. Z8Games will then determine the play time based on the provided schedules and deliver the schedule to the Clans on April 5th.
    • The top 2 clans will then meet on the Clan Server to play a one-game playoff to determine the Ghost Mode Tournament winner.
    • Both clans must communicate with Z8Games, if neither do in the allotted time, the original records will stand. If only one clan communicates with Z8Games (or shows up for the match) then they will be declared the winners.
    • Z8Games reserves the right to review the records, rosters and status of all participating clans for malicious behavior including hacking, and ladder manipulation including 'farming wins', and refuse a prize if deemed appropriate.
    • Z8Games reserves the right to change the rules at any time. Any rule changes will be accompanied by an appropriate announcement.


    The winning clans will be announced on the website and in forum posts and are expected to communicate with Z8Games. Clans will be contacted via http://support.z8games.com. The Clan leader and all lieutenants will be sent a ticket with the meeting time.

          Is the Golden Katana just for one clan. Or everyone that plays the 10 games in the Clan server during the event time.

                Since the category "Winning Clan" wasn't obvious enough we've put the words "winning clan" again in the area with the prize.

                Only members from the Winning Clan for the tournament will get the Gold Katana.

                            Considering that this would be a special, limited item. I probably would go for it, if I only have time.

                              If you play 4on4 and 1 player disconnects during the match, will the match still count?
