Been with the THG for a good long while now but I never knew how it started.

Anyone know the true history of it all ?
Just some guys and gals from the UK formed a server and more people jumped into it ?

far as i am aware it was just binksy who started THG just playing tf2 and thought get a server don't think any one else was really involved, tf2 was quite young then so it was more easy to populate.



  mind you i could be completely wrong and he may have won it in a game of cards from jack before the titanic sunk  Rolling Eyes  Question

I think it might have been before TF2 carlos. I definitely remember playing CS 1.6 against THG and they were definitely called Trigger Happy Gamers at that time too. I presume it was the same community / people  Razz

More information needed, I'm curious!

THG. Started with a CSS Clan over 7-8 years ago which did not work out well lol..!.. We lost almost all of our scrims and wars it was getting boring, our members were moaning all the time as we were not winning etc etc.

So basically when TF2 came out hellboy & londonbridge former css thg members bought tf2 and dragged me along. 1 week later our CSS servers were gone!.. TF2 #1 was born.. Eventually THG | metcalf who was also a CSS THG member got the game too. Others did not :<..

We soon gathered a great bunch of regs! Druid, Topher, Precezion + more all helped out early days! as did many others each morning each day, Whenever they could really! to get the server going,

This created what we have today, A great bunch of mature members, since we filtered out the immature ones who tried to ruin THG a couple of times within its life. None the less all forgotten and put behind us..


Its a short version of the origin for ya hehe Wink...

Hopefully we can grow bigger better and stronger! "i do have some tricks/plans" as I'm certainly up for putting more work/play into keeping us going for much longer as yet.

We might have to start supporting more games though  Idea  as well as getting off our lazy bums, advertising/using the forums allot more "which i am hoping to change at some point in the future" To a V Bulletin board or another cms.

It takes time and money but only "WE" can make it work  Wink

Can't wait for those funny tricks you got in your sleeve  Very Happy

Also, if you want to convert forum to something more usable, why not stay with phpBB but with some tweeking done (or maybe only upgrade to v3 would be enough)? It's at least free. V Bulletin is great, but kind of expensive Smile

Well that was an interesting read, I didnt expect that to be honest.
Why dont we play Csgo if you played css earlier!?

As for future games: if the new TF2 / Moba IP from Blizzard (Overwatch) is as fun as tf2 and has dedicated servers I could see myself renting a server in the name of THG...
