Arrow Hi there - I'm new...

Hello all,

In keeping with following your rules;
  • I am 25 years of age or older, (actually 41 in July...sheese, where did this year go?)
  • I have read our AUP and FAQ and agree to it's terms and conditions.
  • I have read the Server Guidelines.
I've been a gamer since there have been games to be played, most recently the game of choice being Call of Duty 2. Iv'e worked in the game industry and own many FPS WWI games from EA. (now you know where I worked).

I was recently involved in another clan and was instrumental in getting their bugs worked out in the beginning, but they grew too fast, adopted a military structure, became totalitarianistic as well as, (dare I say?), Fascist in nature. It made for a very uncomfortalbe place to be despite their touting that they are a family (I could go on but I care not to.)

Both my wife and I like to play friendly games where we can chat with Teamspeak software to the folks in the game and would love to be able to treat COD2 and other games as a form of relaxation rather than stress. The whole stress thing comes from spawn campers and dirty tactics such a hacking, glitching and use of "untraceable hacks".

In the group I just left, it's painfully obvious, (by looking at the stats and kill ratios), that there are people in that group who use hacks and the group doesn't do anything about it. Very frustrating.

I am looking for a group of gamers who aren't to above being gentlemen on the battlefield. Spawn camping is a seriously hot topic for me and I am hoping to find a group that frowns upon it, as well as cheating.

I'd like to submit myself to be a member but I'm still getting used to your forum architecture - SOOO MANY GAAAAAMMES!!!



If accepted, I'll shoot my wife this site and you can look forward to having two more COD2 folks, (her callsign is "Red Witch")

Thanks so much - TKs huh? LOL, do you have servers where Friendly Fire is turned off? - My primary game choice has been team deathmatch. I'll find out more about your servers once I'm in, I suppose.

Thanks again

I have no clue about CoD. I'm sure that the CoD group will help you get acclimated.

Welcome to TOG! Please stop by the COD division forums, check in with the peeps there, and find out what COD is all about and what the really really dark side of TOG is playing. JK. You will be more than welcome to stop by and say hello. Once again welcome.
