    Hello all, my name is Thomas and I'm from the Netherlands.

    I've been playing games since 1992. Started with games like Ninja Rabbits and Operation Wolf
    Later on moved to games such as C&C, Warzone 2100, Rainbow Six, Unreal Tournament, Quake and Guild Wars.
    But i played on quite a few consoles in between (PSX, PS2, PS3, PS4, PSP, PS Vita (waiting for a PS5 in the near future) Xbox, Xbox360, Sega Saturn, Megadrive, Dreamcast, Atari 2600, Jaguar, Lynx, Nintendo SNES, 64, GC, Wii, Switch.

    I've been playing WoW since 2007 been in La Familia, Nightshift, Blood Wolves of the Moon, Void Watch (on Wildhammer/Thunderhorn at least) and sometimes i do turn on the old dusty PS4 for Rainbow Six Siege, No Mans Sky and some other games.

    But after trying a few guilds i usually end up back where i started: La Familia a very social guild..Such a social guild there are still members in it that have been offline for 9 years and are still a member ;)
    This guild has been deteriorating for quite some time and it's just time to move on to a guild that is good for social and raiding.

    Raiding experience recently:
    I've done 9/10 CN on normal with my horde guild where they now have transferred to another realm and i refused to pay again to transfer a char.


    Perhaps wrote a bit more than i should have written but at least now everybody can waste a few minutes of their lives ;)

    Hello Xilli and welcome.

    Congratulations! You have passed our stringent don't die before 25 application requirement and have made it into TOG.

    Keep in mind there is more here than the division for that flaky game you have signed up for. There are other flaky games which all have their own division and other things of wonder, joy and wtf.

    Public Forums (Philistines only or less then 25. Same thing)
    Member Forums (General chat, cat videos, VR, laboratories, Steam and Discord invites)
    Member News (If you have a mind like mine you just laughed)
    Simulation and Sports Divisions (This is for simulation and sports games!)
    Strategy, RPG and other Games (This is for err... Strategy, RPG and other Games)
    FPS (Brutal and horrific death. Lots of fun!)
    MMORPG (Also brutal and horrific death but sometimes ponies)
    Operations (The name you picked is stupid and you want to change it? Policies and stuff).

    :D

    "C&C" Ahh man the memories flood in, like using 56K modems to connect a multiplayer game with a mate of mine, then having de-sync issues as we started nuking each other, fun game, thank goodness for modern networking though lol, Welcome aboard Xilli :D

    56k and the awesome sounds it came with. If you remember using a 56k, means you most likely also remember Mplayer & Gamespy >_<

    started with 14k4 modem.
    But the best fun we had was with our lan parties running on arcnet card (coax) network running at 2,5MB, taking 3 hours to setup.
    Including all the hustle to get the drivers into upper memory, so we actually could load Doom.
    And then hours of pew pew !

    Welcome to TOG Xilli. Great intro by the way mate. I really enjoyed the read.

    I think I started with something like a 4k modem and no browser. Ahhh, the bad old days!!!
