Our History

In Early 2005 the community started out known as, Hard Metal Rockers (HMR), founded by Red (Deceased), then co-founders Ethan "Rapazzini" & Chane "Deegon". The community consisted of quite a few young avid Battlezone II players during this time. Eventually the community got involved in voice chatting on the then popular teamspeak 2 application.

In Late 2007, Destroyer founded the name Fight till Death (FTD), making Ethan, Chane, and Destroyer as Official founders of the FTD community. FTD continued until around 2008 when both Chane and Ethan separated from the community.

On October 24, 2009, David "TopGun" and Ethan Resurrected the FTD name and purchased the domain ftd-clan.com on April 12, 2010. The primary game played was Battlezone II and expanded to Counter-Strike. On July 6th-present, Ethan launched an official teamspeak 3 server for the community. The community grew quite large until the FTD community split, and eventually renamed to its current name.

The Other Gamers (TOG) name was founded by Nathan "Jintolyn" mid July 2011, and on July 27th 2011 Ethan created The Other Gamers and by the 29th the community was officially known as TOG.
