In Early 2005 the community started out known as, Hard Metal Rockers (HMR), founded by Red (Deceased), then co-founders squirrelof09 & dark_lord (later known as DarkReign and more recently 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 squirrelof09, dark_lord, and Destroyer Official founders of the FTD community. FTD continued until around 2008 when both dark_lord and squirrel separated from the community.

On October 24, 2009, TopGun and squirrelof09 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, squirrelof09 launched an official teamspeak 3 server for the community. We grew the community quite large until the FTD community split, and eventually renamed to its current name.

The Other Gamers (TOG) name was founded by Jintolyn mid July 2011, and on July 27th 2011 squirrelof09 created The Other Gamers and by the 29th the community was officially known as TOG.

TOG has arranged meetups in various states over the years.
