We generally don't do this, but the amount of work and dedication put on Pirates, Vikings and Knights II deserves all our attention and support.

The Insurgency Team released the following exclusive video for the ModDB MOTY awards:
This is an extract from the full text available at ModDB:
With this video we've tried to give a small insight of the creation process of Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat, from the first design documents and sketches to our latest release. [...] There are many small details included: scenes from previous trailers, internal jokes, images of the coverage we've received from the press during this time, etc. It's difficult to summarize 5 years of development into a video documentary, and we thought it was too long already, so we had to leave a lot of very interesting parts of our story out. Think about it as a tribute to former developers, without whose work INS would have never been made, our player community, our friends from other teams, and all the people that have made this achievement possible.
We're now busy working on Insurgency Beta 2.1, a release focused on bug-fixes and stability. We still cannot give you any indication of when it's going to be ready, but we can already give you a bit of information about some of the main issues we're looking at. Think about it as a todo list that is still pretty much a work in progress.
Insurgency Beta 2.1
This changelog is not yet locked. There will be further news updates about 2.1 as soon as we have a release date estimate with the final list of features.
In the meantime, we wanted to show you these screenshots from the updated version of ins_almaden:
Notice the building where there used to be an alley. We were a bit sad to see the alley go, but it was needed to increase performance.
Inside the new building, facing towards the USMC respawn.
Different perspective, from the USMC respawn towards the new building.
Redesigned USMC spawn area. Now Marines have an alternative exit route through that hole.
I hope you'll agree with us that INS is looking better day after day. Don't forget to take a look at our developer logs for additional information and media!

That's right, folks. Insurgency: Modern Infantry Combat has won the Player's Choice Mod of The Year award from MODDB for Released Mods. We'll be updating this information shortly, but first of all, we'd like to thank you, the Insurgency players, that have made this achievement possible. Thanks, also, to everybody that has contributed and worked in this mod during all this time. The best, though, is that we are working hard to bring you new updates, new content, new theatres of war, and lots of improvements. We're not stopping here, and we sincerely hope neither will you.
Thanks. Now let's rock!
