    I'd only just purchased CoD a few days ago (sorry I didn't buy United Offensive just yet). Although I'm new to first person shooters, I'm no stranger of online gaming; your policies are exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for in a group (as I get annoyed at smart mouthed kids who'd never dream of saying to me in person what they get away with online).

    I'm 42 (so I passed 25 yrs of age about 17 yrs ago - about the same age as my oldest son, by the strangest coincidence). I'm not so much interested in playing in league play or sanctioned matches as much as I'm just a person that likes to play the game with others that happen to share many of the same views.

    Thanks in advance for your considering my request to join.

    PS - Did I mention that I've read the FAQ and AUP and understand them both and agree to abide by them always (so help me God?) :D

    Apologies

    Sorry to trouble you fellers - I'd like to go ahead and rescind my request. I think I'll need much more practice before asking to join - you've got a good group of excellent players and I'm not in the same caliber. If an admin could please go ahead and remove my profile, I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks though for referring me to the website. You guys are really well organized.

    Hey Creed, Just seen your request...

    MATE!!! you are what we're looking for.

    We're not a ability group...We've got a squad that plays just for fun. This sounds like what you need. We've got dedicated gaming servers where you'll always be welcome and Team Speak where you can talk while gaming with us. Reconsider and come in and have a look before deciding to call it off.

    If you want any more info or just want to say hi...You can email me on lee@grafficjam.com.au or Personal message me by clicking on the PM box under my signature.

    Welcome to TOG!
    You'll fit right in!
    Get that silly talk of not being good enough out of your head. League play is optional, and we have many players that simply get together to have fun, and that's it. No matches, no commitments.

    I notice you never filled out where you're from, but my guess is from the U.S. We have two Australian servers: one CoD and one UO, and we have three American servers: one CoD, one UO, and one Rifles Only UO.

    My point is, there is always something for everyone there. You are going to have a great time in TOG, and I hope to see you on one of the servers, soon. :wink:

    Cheers,
    Contra - CoD Division Captain

    Please, please dont get scared off. There is every type of player here you can imagine. And the age thing - you fall right into the average.

    Please - once the admin weenies have waived their wand - follow them to where they suggest and I bet you will enjoy your first real TOG experience.

    Hey Creed

    You're being way too hard on yourself mate.

    See the guy who first got back to you, 'Geeza', well... keep this quiet if you don't mind buddy, but even though he's the division Captain, he couldn't hit the side of a barn! I mean he's a great old guy, just never stand in front of him in a firefight if you get my drift...

    What I'm saying is, skill is not a factor here mate, it's all for fun... so what do ya say?

    G'day mate, echo the sentiments above and apart from that you're still a tad younger than some :wink: :lol:

    TOG is all about FUN mate. I love playing games with this mob even though I really am bloody hopeless. :lol: Come on in, the water's fine. :wink:

    I just happened to check the forums this AM - and thanks for the encouragement. If you're sure a n00b won't bring you down any, I'd like to join your band of merry men and women :)

    Is there something else in particular I need to do in order to be assigned to the right group? Or are there any required downloads I have to have (aside from teamspeak)? And where/how in the world do you get those cool forum signature blocks like that? Is there someone in TOG that can do that sort of thing?

    Creed! Welcome Champ! In our books, everyone is a champ! Just signing up to be a TOGGER can be scary, but I totally assure you that this 58 yr old coot can fight with the best of them. But, just remember, the TOGGER way is to "shoot 'em in the back". :lol: :lol:

    Hi Creed! Ability? Good Enough? You will fit right in and don't worry about looking like a noob. We all started there. (some of us are still there)

    Hi Creed!! Glad yer stickin' around M8!! This place is full of perpetual n00Bs, we just don't let on :lol: . There is no such thing as skill based gaming within TOG regardless what game you play. Strictly fun M8!!

    So jump into a server and onto Teamspeak & get stuck in!! you won't ever regret it. At least, this 45YO CoDer never will! :wink:

    Welcome Creed.

    You should know that TOG wouldn't exist if we all worried about being good enough :oops: If you're in the US or Canada and need help getting started, feel free to PM me and I'll steer you right :D
