    Hi Guys,

    Just another membership application :) My friend is already a TOG member and he told me that it would be a good idea to join. I’m already playing BF2 and Red Orchestra with my friend pretty regular.
    He told me it’s much more fun to play in a TOG team, because you don’t get all these “crazy guys” in your squad. One of the biggest advantages is to play on a TOG server, playing with people who love to play but don’t take everything to serious. - Playing computer games should be fun!

    About Me?
    I’m 33years old live in Sydney Australia and earn my money in IT. I got in to with computer games quite a while ago. Everything started with a C64 and long sessions in front of the screen with friends playing Summer and Winter Games. Or what about Defender of the Crown!!! - Next step was the Amiga, which was replaced by a 386 PC. We replaced the Amiga with a PC because of the Wing Commander series, which was only available for PC at that time.
    The first real contact with Online Multi-Player games was during my studies at the University . Role playing games, text only! Today, I’m playing BF2 or to be more excat played BF2. After the last BF2 patch the hole game became pretty unstable and I swapped to Red Orchestra.
    Beside that I play Fear, Oblivion, FarCry and a few other games.

    That’s it so far,
    Tom

    Hi privateer, I was wondering when you would show :)

    Oh - and welcome to TOG !

    Also - we are on a server tonight for RO. Just check the RO forum in FPS area. Also ventrilo voice chat program would be a good idea.

    Hi,
    BF1942 looks like a good choice. I've already started looking around for a cheap buy, think I can get a BF1942 collection for $40.
