FNF Week 7 Battle

So uh… How’s everyone doing?


As many of you know, Week 7 of Friday Night Funkin’ launched exclusively on NG Sunday night and we weren’t able to handle the millions of people all trying to load it at the same time, in addition to the ddos attacks and other mischief that come with trending on Twitter and being in the spotlight in general. 


Sunday was also the launch of the Friday Night Funkin’ Kickstarter! The Funkin’ crew are raising funds for a full release and it’s gonna be NUTS. These guys have been working around the clock for months to entertain everyone; it’s time to support them on the road ahead.


Unfortunately on our end, we’ve disabled FNF while we work to increase capacity and prepare for another go at Week 7. More and more of that potential traffic is bleeding off to sites that steal games from NG but we still want to build our capacity, so that NG is more capable now and in the future.


If you’ve ever considered becoming a Supporter, this would be a great time! You can pay as little as $3 per month or $25 for the year. At the least we need hundreds of additional supporters asap and it’s ideal if you can stick around as a recurring subscriber.


Picture this as a big anime battle, where Newgrounds is bloody and on its knees in the face of FNF Week 7. As Newgrounds looks up, determined, a montage with dramatic music plays, showing how much Newgrounds has accomplished over 26 years and how much was taken from it, as Newgrounds charges up to unveil a new level of power never before seen.


Tuesday Night Update:


Week 7 is live, we'll see how things go. Will be increasing capacity tomorrow as well.


The tankmen site skin is by @MD00dles!


Thursday Update:


NG has been running fine so far today and we have additional hardware coming to make things extra-fine.


Yesterday Friday Night Funkin' had 1.2 million plays, a new single day record for anything on the site.


Yesterday NG had 30,000 sign-ups, a new single day record for the site, we think.


Hope everyone is having a good time here!

Sorry this has dragged out so long, no ETA yet but with Week 7 wrapping up it should be getting on track.

I've had to get an UptimeRobot monitor to check the NG entry every once in a while... hopefully it stops giving a 503

Jesus that's mad, good luck to the guys on their kickstarter tho, it's not my kinda game but I really think they've been updating and handling it in the best way possible

Response to FNF Week 7 Battle 2021-04-20 10:39:16


Had been meaning to start supporting for a while now, I guess now's better than any other time to. Good luck with the servers and the ongoing spotlight the site's been getting, haha

Attention all Newgrounders! Newgrounds is going to be defeated by Friday Night Funkin Week 7 and Tankmen needs your help! All he needs is your credit card number, the 3 digits on the back and the expiration month and year! But be quick, Newgrounds may fall again without you.

Response to FNF Week 7 Battle 2021-04-20 10:43:17


if FNF is THAT popular I may as well play it next time the game is available

It's no rush (at least to me) .3.


Though those DDOS attacks are just

Why-

Response to FNF Week 7 Battle 2021-04-20 10:51:46


I have been giving out some random one month supporter to people to help out, and also I have been creative, in a bad way, with pumping out some memes.


Here's a great simulator for example.



But yeah, thanks for all your hard work Tom! I will keep suppporting Newgrounds, and randomly gifting subs.
