    Hi there,

    My names Wrexxx and I live in SE Melbourne. I'm 34 and a complete nOOb to Online gaming.

    I recently (about a week ago) downloaded a demo of Battlefield 1942 and was hooked instantly (despite being terrible at it).

    I purchased a copy (with the 2 add on packs) and have downloaded the patch and DC (took me forever to find out what that was).

    What a truely awsome game.

    So, I'm looking for organisation and training, and hope I have come to the right place.

    Cheers


    Wrexxx

    Hey mate, glad you could stop by. :)

    If you are interested in joining our ranks, you'll have to read our FAQ and AUP. If they fit your frames of thought then we are the right people for you.

    Do you use dialup or do you have broadband as your means of Internet connection? You'll find that if you are using dialup, playing BF'1942 will be relatively difficult because the amount of data that has to go through in order for the online gaming experience to be truly rich is just a little too much for dialup to handle.

    That all being said, have a read and accept the FAQ and AUP, and we'll sign you up to be a member straight away. Then you'll be able to access our BF'1942 and DC private forums where the rest of our members will be more than willing to help you as much as they can to get you all suited and kitted up and ready to head into battle under the TOG banner. :)

    Heya mate, welcome!

    You've met the requirements, so I'll make you a member right away. You should then have access to the private forums.

    Coronary can take care of you for BF'42.

    WREXX, Welcome,
    Start on the anouncments and stickys first those are usually the most important I would get teamspeak down loaded and running ( i think BF uses it if not a post should tell you how where and why. That way you can Talk to other toggers. Easier info flow somtimes when you can ask questions/ get ans. real time.
