    Hi TOG,

    For those of you who have been around the community for way too long I used to be a member of an old clan called Drunkards in Combat. We used to play against TOG quite a lot back in the bf1942/DC/BF2/2142/COD1-2 days.

    Whenever we encountered you guys I always thought you were a fun bunch to play against. We even participated in your Rfactor racing series.

    Since those days I've fallen away from online gaming due to studies, work and life in general. Lately I've been getting a bit back into it.

    I kind of realised I didn't have a community to play with anymore. I wanted to find somewhere where I won't be surrounded by teenagers (ironic as I used to be one of those annoying teenaged players back in the day). While I was reminiscing about the old days a thought popped into my head. Maybe I should see if TOG is still around. Low and behold I found that you guys are still alive and kicking.

    In terms of games. To be honest. No idea. Keen to see what you guys are playing and happy to jump into whatever takes my interest. I mainly game across a PC and xbox one. My taste in games is far reaching. My first gaming experience with Mario on the Super Nintendo.

    A bit about myself... Well back when I used to come up against TOG i was a teenager. Now i'm 28 a bit older and definitely less wiser. I've sold out to the man and now work in the financial services industry. I'm a lover of the round ball game. Will be off to Russia in June with a bunch of mates for the world cup.

    Hoping to get to know you guys a bit more and have some fun games and a few laughs. If anyone remembers me from back in the day. Don't be a stranger.
