The Brotherhood
« on: July 14, 2014, 10:41:11 pm »

The Brotherhood is a clan that plays games, but we are not a gaming clan. We wish to be more than just a collection of people playing one game. In The Brotherhood, the goal is creating an association, a union, of like-minded individuals who seek life-long friendship, trust, fellowship, and who have a similar mindset.

Our official website, application and forums can be found here http://thebrotherhoodofgoio.com/

The Brotherhood, and it's name, was inspired by a close friend of mine- Timmy Blumer, also known as "TimmyB". Timmy taught me that a clan can be more than a collection of gamers. That they can come to be life-time friends, even a second family. He gave everything he could to support those he considered his friends, and he treated us all like brothers. When Timmy died to brain cancer, the loss devastated me, but it also taught me to cherish those friendships, and to show others what he showed me. His name will be honored through our actions, and is represented in our tag "TB".


In Memory of Timmy R.I.P. 1981-2014

The image of the Brotherhood is the hydra. The hydra symbolizes that though we may have different faces, we represent one body, and that the actions of one head represent the whole. In GOIO our theme will be ships with green balloons and dragon figureheads.

I've seen your clan tag about! Always been good opponents and allies, really heart warming to know the clan tag origins after reading this thread.

A year ago I left the Gents clan and it's squabbles to create a vision. I dreamed of something elevated from a simple gaming clan- an actual brotherhood.

I made it to be based off of the joys I learned from a random stranger I met in GOIO, such as sharing games just to enjoy them with someone else, competing together for the elation of camaraderie, not the win, and the sense of wholeness in gaming that comes from respect and trust in others.

Now one year later, I am proud of what I started, but more so what every member has helped develop this group into. We may not be the best at every game, but we have something very few other gaming groups can ever have.

So happy birthday The Brotherhood!

With pleasure i bump this thread. it is nice to fly with us, either with a competitive mindset or a casual approach.

The clan is mostly North American but more and more European and Eastern players are joining (including me), which means you can find one of us 24/7. We have a TS channel and a website http://thebrotherhoodofgoio.com/ where you can find more.

Practice is on weekends, mostly against other clans, Saturday and Sunday afternoon (EST), after that we set up a few lobbies with 2 TB on each ship to avoid stacking and maybe teach a trick or two to the new players. Check on global chat and join our games.

mind that we are not a "catch-em-all" or authoritative clan: if you look at our clan in GOIO you will see we are all officers because, well, democracy and mutual trust.

May your skies be clear of flak and your balloon not on fire!

Hey, TB.

The OP in this thread is really touching. I'd love to play with you guys and see about becoming friends and teammates. I submitted an application on your site and look forward to hearing back.
