This month marks 1 year in VG for me and having had a little time to reflect I decided I would add my testimony. 

 

I first discovered the clan when I by chance entered a game with Bobby and a bunch of other VG's, Bobby was in my squad and I was prepared to receive the usual abuse that can be expected when joining any fps game with a microphone. My expectation were not met to my great pleasure as me and Bobby played for hours and talked casually about everything from Battlefield to musical taste. It was after a good few hours of conversation that he invited me to join VG, at first I was extremely dubious as every clan I had ever encountered in game were rude, ignorant and arrogant. I reluctantly signed up and was placed in Chimaera Squad with other squad new comers Dingoli, Paddywaba and Princesuchifufu. The first few practices were awkward encounters as we all got to know each other but my SL TheDappa encouraged everyone to be themselves and talk openly. Eventually I became friends with my squad, something I never really expected to happen as they were just people I played battlefield with. Over time I came to understand VG is way more than just a catalyst for gameplay without stupid blues and more a community were everyone's opinion, belief's and personalities are both valued and respected. This last year seems to have flown by however I have made some of the greatest friends I've ever had that have been there for me through a lot of tough personal times. I guess I just like to say thank you to VG and to my squad mates for being top class gentlemens :D So to Dingo, Paddy, Prince, Psy, Surm, Dappa, Un-Co, Little, Doflip and everyone else in VG thank you and I look forward to another great year with you dudes :D 

 

And now for some chewbaccas

This was awesome to read, and it makes me really pleased to know that what we started a few years ago is still carrying on now.

 

When me and Brido Trazker Adam and some of the other guys first got together in a squad these were the ideals we really appreciated as gamers. Now we ended up moving to SC which it has to be said for a while was awesome but slowly it didnt really fit with the ideals of what we wanted a gaming clan to be. So it actually was a great thing we ended up being pushed to create VG as it has grown to become much more than we originally anticipated.

 

The whole point of VG is to have a clan space which doesnt have the ridiculous pressures and egos that seem to be so widespread in especially the fps communities

 

Its really excellent that VG still gives a good place for people to connect with likeminded opinions and attitudes to gaming :LT:
