Expansion

In order for us to grow the clan and help the members, the Initial Training Group (ITG) was formed to deal with any applications and be a point of reference for anyone wishing to join the clan.

 

The Academy was created where members would run trianing courses across all of our games on various aspects of gameplay to help each other, alongside the running of internal and external scrims, a series of internal events that has come to be known as our Fight Club and of course the start of one of the major [RIP] traditions the [RIP] vs The World event on Friday nights where the clan stack on one side on the server and take on anyone and everyone in round after round whilst enjoying a good few drinks to wind down from the working week.

First Annual RIPping Weekend

After a meet up (paintballing and a rather wet but inebriated BBQ) by some of the clan founders and some other members that joined soon after [RIP] formed, it was decided that on the 6th to 8th July 2007, [RIP] would hold it's first RIPping weekend. This was to become an annual "get together" event, where our members could meet and greet while enjoying a good few drinks and having a laugh.

 

The location chosen for this event was Grendon Lakes, which has been used ever since as they have looked after us well over the years.

 

This first weekend attracted 35 members, where one of the highlights from this first RIPping weekend, other than the expected high consumption of alcohol was one of the members falling into one of the fishing lakes on our way back to our section of the campsite.

We were running BF2 and BF2142 servers in both the UK and in the USA along with other servers for CoD2, MOHPA and CSS.

BF2142

 

The final of our first games and successful servers was BF2142, with a mixture of Vanilla and Northern Strike servers, which ended up being a strong game for the clan with multiple platoons and both internal and external leagues being ran.

Game Information

Launch

The clan was officially launched with a basic forum, Ventrillo and BF2 servers, from Alpha-Networks in the UK.

 

The public engaged in the servers, and enjoying the way that they were run and adminned quickly began putting in application posts in our forums. RIP expanded exponentially, at great speed, both in Europe and the United States.

BF2

 

The game that the clan was founded on and being our most successful game.

 

During it's lifespan in the clan, many a platoon was formed on both sides of the Atlantic with 6 servers running a mix of Vanilla, Infantry only, SF, Desert Conflict, Point of Existence 2, Forgotten Hope 2, Operation Peacekeeper, Allied Intent, custom maps and of course training/match servers, allowing us to host many of the features that has made the clan great fun.

 

Internal and external scrims and leagues, fight club events, training nights to help each other in gameplay and many many nights of laughter and drunken antics!!!!

 

Game Information

Ventrilo

 

Ventrilo was used as our first clan communication system.

 

Information

The start of an era

 

Our history begins back in 2006, where the 10 clan founders had played Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault (MOHPA), Counter Strike Source (CSS), Call of Duty 2 (CoD2) and then Battlefield 2 (BF2) together for a few years.

 

With a vision to create a clan where mature friends could come together and team up while playing their favourite games and engage in some banter and enjoy a few drinks, plans were put in motion. All of our game servers were to be set as Hardcore (or as close as the games would allow) and be well admined.

 

Between the clan founders and a couple of other key members we had the skill sets required to get great servers up and running quickly, along with the setting up our website.

 

The Clan Founders:

  • BearBison
  • BIG-Dewey
  • BIG-Paddy
  • BIG-Ranger
  • Dodger
  • Grimreaper
  • Gunner
  • Magnus
  • Robs
  • Stinky
