Garrosh Down!

It's about time... Great job everyone! It's been a good (albeit long) run, but we managed to finish before the WoD pre-patch. We look forward to what the expansion will bring!

Several Announcements

I'll begin with the biggest announcement: We are moving to another server. Aggramar, to be specific.

It's a bittersweet moment, to say the least. On one hand, many of us have been on Arthas since we started playing -- I've been here over 9 years. On the other hand, the increasing faction imbalance has made the game nearly unplayable in places like the Timeless Isle or the Isle of Thunder, not to mention the minuscule pool to recruit from as Alliance on Arthas. We're the only active Alliance raiding guild on a high population server, for crying out loud!

The decision wasn't easy, but it's been a long time coming.

In other news, we've gotten a couple new heroic kills. Last Wednesday (Feb. 19), we killed Heroic Galakras, and yesterday we killed Heroic Iron Juggernaut. Hopefully this is the start of a trend, though I know we haven't hit the hard bosses yet.

Additionally, while it's somewhat less of an accomplishment, most of us completed our Glory of the Orgrimmar Raider achievement last night!

Heroic Fallen Protectors Down!

After attendance issues last week, we got another one down tonight. Not a bad fight. Now for a nice, two-week, holiday break.

Heroic Immerseus and Norushen Down!

I guess our Thanksgiving break left us feeling rejuvenated -- or something like that, anyway. Great job tonight, everyone!

Garrosh Hellscream Down!

Last night we finally finished up normal mode Siege of Orgrimmar. We had several 4% wipes the previous week, but due to tunnel vision, we were overwhelmed by Touch of Y'Shaarj. Last night, things went much smoother, and we managed the kill after only a couple of attempts.

I've got to say, this is one of the most satisfying boss kills in quite some time. I don't think any other normal mode boss in either Mists or Cataclysm has come close.

Great job everyone!

Lei Shen Down!

After being forced to drop 25-man raiding due to the abysmal state of Arthas Alliance, we picked up the pace. Tonight, on our second night of attempts, we brought down Lei Shen!

Heroics, here we come!

Still Recruiting

We made the switch to 25-man raiding this week and we're off to a good start (5/6 in Mogu'shan Vaults with several pugs along), but we are still in need of more for our raid team! We mainly need DPS classes (warlocks in particular) but will gladly give players of any class a fair shot.

Note that all of our members are expected to be mature. This is not a "mature content" warning, but rather a disclaimer that if your behavior warrants such a warning, we are not the guild for you

If you are interested, you can either apply here or speak with one of our officers in-game.

UPDATE (Feb. 21): We have been regularly raiding as a 25-man group, and we have now cleared through Lei Shi in ToES. We are still recruiting and are primarily in need of ranged DPS and strong non-druid healers.

(1) Comment


In an effort to return to 25-man raids, we are once again recruiting! Raids continue to favor ranged DPS (as well as healing classes we are lacking in), and while we have been able to push through these barriers in the past, we would like to have the class diversity promoted in a 25-man environment.

To clarify, that means we are currently recruiting all ranged classes as well as at least one holy paladin, restoration shaman, and mistweaver monk. Other classes are welcome to apply, of course, but those are our primary needs.

If interested, please apply in our forums, or speak with any of our officers if you have any questions!

Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider

We decided to finish up our achievements tonight, and with the completion of Holding Hands, we earned our Glory of the Dragon Soul Raider meta! Mount collectors rejoice!

(3) Comments

Heroic Madness of Deathwing Down!

After several frustratingly low attempts (one at less than 1%), we finally managed to get Madness tonight! With Dragon Soul officially cleared, we look forward to finishing the achievements in there and maybe even relaxing a little before Mists arrives.

Great job, everyone!

Heroic Spine of Deathwing Down

For what it's worth.

(7) Comments

Heroic Zon'ozz

It's always nice to see things just "click" and get a kill. After spending a while getting coordinated in the Black Blood phase, we got things straightened out and killed Warlord Zon'ozz nice and easy. Great job everyone!

Now we can look forward to the fun of Heroic Spine...

(1) Comment

Heroic Blackhorn

After giving Heroic Warmaster Blackhorn some token attempts last week, we decided to give it a go again tonight and on our third attempt of the night we made it to phase 2... and then killed him. Now, I realize encounters have been nerfed significantly, but I think we were all expecting this one to be more difficult.

Either way, fantastic job everyone!

(2) Comments

Heroic Hagara

After much frustration, we finally got our acts together and killed Hagara tonight. And hey, the angry raid leader even came back!

(0) Comments

Heroic Ultraxion

After deciding to try Heroic Ultraxion for the first time last week (taking a break from Hagara attempts), we decided that he looked very doable. With the help of an additional 5% nerf this week, we downed Ultraxion quite easily.

Now if we can have a single week in which we have 10 raiders available both nights, maybe we can make some progress elsewhere... Incidentally, we're looking for a decent, reliable mage, warlock, shadow priest, rogue, paladin, or death knight to fill an otherwise empty DPS slot.

(0) Comments

Heroic Yor'sahj

After a good number of frustratingly low percentage wipes, we finally got him tonight. We even managed to keep our tradition of getting the kill on the last attempt of the night! Now if we keep our three-night-running trend of actually having ten players available to raid, maybe we'll actually be able to log some more kills.

(1) Comment

Heroic Morchok

After a bit of a slow start -- or at least a slow finish -- to the normal mode of this tier due to holiday-related low attendance, we finally got started on heroics last night. Morchok went down pretty easily after a few attempts, and we're hoping to have some others down in the near future!

Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest

It's been years since we've earned a legendary, but after working at it for months (with plenty of delays), Svn finally earned his Dragonwrath tonight! Congratulations, Svn! Let's hope it doesn't take us years to get our next legendary.

(3) Comments

Dragon Soul Begins!

Well, last night we made our first venture into Dragon Soul, and I have to say, I think we all were expecting more. While we only killed the first four bosses, we never touched the PTR, and we got the first two on our first attempt. Ultraxion should die tonight from what we saw last night, but let's hope the last three offer a little more of a challenge.

UPDATE: Night #2 yielded two more dead bosses before we went and cleared Firelands to continue working towards our still-unfinished legendary staff.

(2) Comments

Our roster is filling...

While we are still recruiting, our numbers are increasing rapidly. It looks as if we will be moving over to a 25-man raid group in just a week or two; we just need a few more!

Primarily, we need a moonkin and another shadow priest, but we will consider most other classes, as well. The "Recruiting Needs" on our home page is generally kept up-to-date, but it only shows what we are actively looking for. As usual, all classes can feel free to apply, and we will let you know if we have room for you on our roster.

(0) Comments


While we never truly stopped recruiting, the doors are at least open wider now. Our desire is to transition from 10-man raids back to a 25-man raids. Thus, we are currently recruiting all classes!

The transition to 25-man raids obviously will not happen overnight, so even if you are undergeared right now, feel free to apply. We'll be glad to run 5-mans for both gear and points towards vendor-bought gear. Otherwise, can often find a spot or two in our 10-man Firelands runs, and we will have a second 10-man up and running before 25-mans are going full swing.

If you are interested, please stop by our forums and post an application or send a whisper in game to Halleck (or just about any other member) for more information.

Finally Building Momentum

After a long break between the end of our raiding in Wrath and the start of our organized raiding in Cataclysm, we've finally started to get back into the swing of things. This week both Nefarian and Cho'gall were added to the guild's list of accomplishments (however small those two may be at this point), albeit with a couple PUGs on our roster for the latter. That said, the team is back in the groove, and we hope to be 12/12 next week.

We are still looking for new recruits to fill out our roster as we look towards heroic and Firelands bosses, so if you have what it takes, feel free to shoot any of our officers a message in-game or on the forums. We are considering most ranged DPS classes and are also looking for a holy paladin or restoration shaman.

Recruiting is Open!

We are once more looking to recruit! This time around, we are in need of more DPS, one more healer, and another tank (who also happens to like DPS). Our current raid schedule is Thursdays and Fridays from approximately 8:00 - 11:30pm.

If you are interested in raiding alongside us, please apply in our recruiting forum!

Recruiting Ranged DPS and Healers

We are looking to recruit two exceptional ranged DPSers for our raids in Ulduar. Namely, we're looking for the following classes: Mage, Moonkin, or Hunter. Those applying must strive to attain the highest DPS possible, have good situational awareness, and excellent raid attendance.

There are also openings for a couple healers in our roster. We have an opening for another Druid at least, and possibly a Paladin and/or Shaman. Again, it is important that you don't have brain damage.

Because it would allow for one of our top mages to stop tanking on his DK, we are also looking for an exceptional Paladin tank. We hold our tanks to a very high standard, so you much know your class inside and out, have incredible situational awareness, know how to: position mobs, pull, react to loose mobs, main-tank, off-tank, etc., and you must have near 100% raid availability. If you can meet these standards, please apply. Otherwise, please leave us with our mage-turned-death knight, as we know he can do the job.
(Never mind, we'll stick with our DK.)

Please see our Recruiting forum for information about our raid schedule and application form.

*RESOLVED* Guild Hacked

Overnight, a hacker took control of my account, seemingly deleted my character, and disbanded the guild. As of this moment, an individual (whether related to the incident or not) has taken my name and has formed a false guild under the name of The Butchers. He is apparently giving out our website, so I am posting this just to avoid any confusion in case he is attempting to besmirch my/our name in any way.

WoW Account Services has been contacted, and hopefully this issue will be resolved shortly.

Everything has been recovered! The Butchers you see in-game are genuine.

Eredar Twins and M'uru DOWN!


Eredar Twins:

Wow! Really great job everyone, that was an incredible night! The Eredar Twins were a cakewalk once we got the conflags under control, and M'uru went down after only a few attempts - obviously different than pre-3.0, but still fun.

Seeing Kil'jaeden emerge had to be one of the most epic moments any of us have experienced in this game to date. Hopefully we can drop the big guy pre-Wrath!

Our doors are open!

We are recruiting once more! At the moment, we are recruiting holy/prot paladins, resto/elemental shamans, and a fire mage. If recruited, you can expect to raid regularly. Regardless of your gear, as long as you know your class and are eager to raid, feel free to apply - you'll get the gear along the way. We don't use a DKP system, so I really mean you will get gear.

Our raid schedule is Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 to 11:30pm, and Sundays from 7:00 to 11:30pm server time. Karazhan is being run as an off-night raid on Saturdays from 7:00pm. Being able to be available for most raids is definitely a plus, but even players mediocre availability can be eligible to see raid time.

Raids will be resuming shortly, but we are currently taking a short break from raiding to get some recruiting done. Even if you want to just run some heroics with us to see if we're what you're looking for, we'd be happy to see what you can do!

Edit: Raids are back. We are still recruiting the classes listed above.

Grand Widow Faerlina down!

After getting our raid team back on track with the acquisition of some more good members we have restarted our progression in Naxxramas with the downing of the Grand Widow, a boss who, without a doubt, we should have killed a week ago.

Good job to everyone present! Maexxna, we will see you Friday!

(14) Comments

The Butchers are Recruiting!

We are recruiting once more! We need experienced members, with at least decent gear (tier 2 legs are a big plus - we're sick of MC). Obviously, we'd prefer to see a high level of gear, since we're fairly deep into AQ and starting to move into Naxx, but a high level of skill to go along with mediocre gear (tier 1 is mediocre for warriors/dps, we're less picky with healers) is definitely an acceptable alternative.

Our raid schedule is Tuesday from 6:30 to 11:00, Friday from 6:30 to 11:30, and Sunday from 4:00 to 9:00. We need active members, so if you'll regularly have issues with this schedule, you may not get in (but feel free to apply).

Our current needs are:
Hunter: 1
Paladin: 2
Priest: 3
Rogue: 1
Warrior: 2

Last Updated on 10/12.

Looking for New Priests/Warriors

The Butchers are looking for one or two more active priests and one more active warrior. Priests are expected to be healing specced, especially with the upcoming 1.10 holy/disc buffs, and we mainly need warriors capable of putting out good damage numbers.

While we may not have room for you immediately in raids, if you are active, you are almost guaranteed to see raid action very shortly. Once we see what you can do in raids, if we like what we see, you'll almost definitely find a spot on the regular raid team.

Those interested, please apply in the recruiting forum with the requested information.

Congratulations on Thunderfury, Kalark!

Last night, after months of waiting and anticipation, we finally fought and killed Prince Thunderaan, and Kalark was able to get his Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker, which still rocks, even after the nerf! I'm sure you'll all see Kal out swinging around his enormous, flashy blade plenty now, and hopefully we won't have to listen to him brag about his damage too much. :P

I'd like to give a HUGE thanks to MTD, who, in their generosity, loaned us the eight remaining elementium ore and smelted the bars for us! We'll get it back to you ASAP!

Now about Kal's Thunderfury...

Wait... We have a website?

Alright, alright... Yeah, I've been lazy, but I finally got around to working on the latest version of the website in the past couple days. So, here it is! Thanks to Kalark for the design!

It's hardly functional, but it's something to look at for the time being, and I've got links up to the to-be-redone members page and DKP section. The links section in particular is not working beyond displaying what was there a year ago, so don't bother trying to add any new links.

Please let me know if you encounter any problems with display and/or functionality.

Ok, so we're a few months behind on announcements...

The Butchers start running Molten Core!

Tonight was our first attempt at Molten Core with our new Raid Team. After finally getting all of our team into Molten Core we got off to a good start, killing Lucifron in our first try and we had no wipes and very few deaths until we reached Magmadar.

Congrats to Luthiena on winning the Choker of Enlightenment and to Nakedduck for the Salamander Scale Pants!

Magamadar will die on Sunday!

World of Warcraft

The Butchers are now involved with World of Warcraft and have made it our "official" game. If you haven't played the game, try it. This is, in my opinion, the most addicting game that I have ever played!

Now if I could only get more than 6 hours of sleep per night... :(

World of Warcraft Released!

As mentioned by Bigguy, World of Warcraft came out today! Yay!

For those that don't have it, you're missing out. Some of us swore to never pay a monthly fee to play a game, and those same people are now completely addicted. This game is more fun than anything I've played in a long time.

Feel free to join us! Post a message in our WoW forum with your name.

Best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving to all!

Joint Operations!

The Butchers are currently playing Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising. If you are from the AA community and like playing JO, come on in and make a post. While we currently aren't planning on laddering in it anytime soon, in this game the more people playing together on comms the better. You can also catch me in irc idling in #butchers.

The Butchers Leave America's Army

As I posted in the TWL AA Forums:

The Butchers have been on the TWL America's Army ladders since the beginning, having played AA:O since its release in July 2002. We have loved the game and have played a lot of matches on the 2v2 Team Combat, 2v2 Team Objective, 4v4 Objective, 6v6 Combat (the original AA ladder) and 6v6 Objective ladders as well as in the 6v6 Leagues and 4v4 Leagues. We have made it to #1 on the 2v2 Combat and the 4v4 Objective ladders and made it to the #2 spot on the other ladders, so we have held our own.

We have always been one of the top squads on a ladder, regardless of whether it was 2v2, 4v4 or 6v6. While we lacked the skill of some of the "elite" teams, we also lacked the arrogance of many of those same teams. We have butted heads with more than one team over current events at the time. Love us or hate us, we stood up for what we believed was right.

Version 2.1 simply has too many bugs for us to tolerate. We have stuck with the game since the beginning assuming that it would continue to improve, but at this point in time I cannot justify paying for a server that kicks our members due to coding problems that should not exist. The Butchers, as a team, is leaving AA, but a few of our Butchers Again members will remain for a short period...

We will stick around until the end of the 6v6 Invitational League as we do not feel right quitting during the season, even if the game has been adversely changed during that time. We do not intend to leave TWL, we will just move on to another game, possibly returning in the future if things change but that is unlikely.

I would like to express my thanks to my teammates who have done a great job over the past two years in America's Army: AKwolf, Angel, Bigguy, Blitz, GoingPostal, Lite_Em_Up, Mo, Pyro, Radix, Scarbane, StickS and 8B@ll.

There are a number of you that will be happy we are leaving, but I know that we have a few friends out there who don't necessarily share that feeling. To you, I say farewell. Some of those teams, but certainly not all, are: {Khuda}, 10thSFG, =JSS=, NR, FoX, and =BB=.

Finally I would like to thank those Team Warfare Ladder admins that affected us directly and made TWL the place to compete in America's Army matches:

Psicotic1 (what can I say, he's the reason this exists), Terror, Maddog, Purge, Patriots, Dotarp, Jeniva, Scarbane, Deleon and Kermit_T_Frog.

The Butchers invited again to the 6v6 Invitational League

Received Thursday, June 10, 2004:
"Congratulations! Your team has been selected to play in the upcoming season of the America's Army 6v6 Invitational League. This season's league will consist of the top teams in TWL, so look forward to some great competition. The 6v6 invite league has become the premier competition in America's Army, and stands as an example to the rest of the community. For this reason, invite teams are held to a higher standard than teams in the open league when it comes to sportsmanship. We expect that you will show respect to the other teams you are in competition with as a member of the league.

If you think you are up to the challenge, please reply to this email with your acceptance. Also please reply if you are declining in order that another team can be invited in your stead.

Looking forward to a great season,


AA US League Admin"

Come Back Train!!!!!

Tonight we faced off against CO on Weapons Cache after a stellar start on Assault we were led by some good strats and some seat of the pants shooting by Blitz and Pyro (who managed to pull off an ace the first round) things were looking good with the score being 4-2. After the switch to Defense I rotated out and let Bigguy play. In the first round on D Blitz pulled off an ace to send the score to 5-2. The next round in a terrible stroke of luck Punkbuster decided that Pyro, Blitz and Razor's PB packets were out of date so it purged them from the server leaving Bigguy all alone which ended up making the score 5-3. CO managed to tear up our defense by taking the vent the next 2 rounds tying it up at 5-5. Some seat of the pants thinking(and some excellent shooting ) by Pyro put us up 6-5. In the last round the team came together to pull off the win with the final score being 7-5. GG's CO
Assault team: Blitz, Pyro, Razorback and StickS.
Defense team: Bigguy, Blitz, Pyro and Razorback.

Power outage causes forfeit...

Our 4v4 team suffered a big setback on the TWL 4v4 Invitational League tonight. The first bad break was when we lost Blitz 20 minutes before match time. We started the match against PECK on JRTC_Farm down one teammate, but we were still determined as we like the map. Unfortunately our area in south central Delaware experienced a fairly severe thunderstorm at match time and our power and cable shut down. Pyro and I were able to reconnect, but Bigguy's cable remained down.

Fight to a draw...

Well our last 2 4v4 Invite League matches ended in a draw, the first occured on MOUT McKenna against a very good team by the name of Fatal Impact, it was a knock down drag out kill fest which ended in a tie at 5-5-2. This week we squared off against the Chosen Ones on our least favorite of all maps (yes we disdain it even more then we do Recon), Bridge. Starting out on defense it quickly looked like we would be able to hold as we jumped out to a 3-0 lead, however CO had our number when they broke our defnse the following round. After that Blitz lost his connection to the server due to a critical error (thanks for making a buggy game devs) and our defense fell again making the score 3-2, after some regrouping we stop CO's next assault cold. After the switch to assault we quickly got shut down for the next four round, however while we were busy getting are heads shot off and our bodies exploded, we were taking notes about how CO was setting up their defense. The next round, we listened to Pyro (as we should have done before) and we quickly swept through CO's defense making the score 5-6 in CO's favor. The last round we stepped it up a bit and went allout, and charged the arch, which ended in Blitz getting naded, leaving 3 of us to assault. We quickly took out the defenders on the stairs and in the tower and pressed our assault. I managed to keep thier RPK gunner trapped in the lower room of the tower, while Pyro, in a scene that the Secret Service could only dream about, dove in front of Razor taking a chest full of hot lead to save his leader as he ran into the tunnel to force the tie. Great Games CO! Good Job to Razor, Pyro, Blitz, and yes, even to myself.

Invite League Win!

Tonight Razorback, Pyro, Blitz and myself fought to a 8-4 victory over Alpha Elite on Swamp Raid. We started out slow on assault promptly losing the first round and by the half it was all tied up at 3-3. After the switch to defense things quickly shifted in our favor, thanks in no small part to Pyro's awesome nading, and some dumb luck by the rest of us bullet catchers. We took 4 in a row on defense before we lost another round, and we managed to eek out the last one to claim a 8-4 win. GG's AE, always a pleasure.

Open League Champs!

American Conference Champs!

The Butchers claimed the title of TWL 6v6 Open League American Conference Champs tonight in a match against Vetro Reloaded on the SF Sandstorm map. After about 30 minutes of trying to figure out why CDC wouldn't work, TWL admin Purge agreed to watch the match so we could play, so the first GG goes to him, THANKS Purge!!! Once the match was underway, Vetro made short work of us in the first round, with Durhai decimating our team. The next round we went on the offensive and managed to secure all 3 objectives for the win. We took the third round and managed to force a tie in the fourth. Using this momentum we managed to sweep the next 8 rounds for a 10-1-1 victory. GG's go out to Vetro who were great sports for the whole match.

Butchers make the playoffs!

We played AE tonight on River Basin to remain undefeated in regular league play, we shut them out on defense and walked away with 2 wins on assault, that pretty much put the nails in the coffin. Final Score 8-4 BUTCHERS WIN! Good games AE. Thats puts us 9-0 in the league and at the top of our division. Good games to all the squads who made an effort to show during the season. GG's 69th, BP, IAF, and AE. Playoffs here we come!!!!

Pyro, StickS, Blitz and I defeated {TNP} even though they had an ineligible player in the match. (GG)Viper_TG_O9 was added to {TNP}'s roster yesterday, March 11, 2004. Strangely enough GG likes River Basin! It was a very good match with a final score of 7-4. The Butchers went 4-2 on Defense and 3-2 on Assault to take the win. Good games guys!

Open League Win

The Butchers won last night's Open League match 12-0 over BP. While the score was lop-sided, BP definitely made a game of it and several rounds were very close. We should also mention that BP were sportsmen in the match throughout - there are many squads that could learn good sportsmanship from a squad like this!

Good games BP!

The Butchers defeats =AIS= on the TWL 4v4 Ladder

Despite Advanced Infiltration Squad's use of door games when they were defending on the Insurgent Camp map, the Butchers still defeated them 7-5. They gave a display of poor sportsmanship from the start of the match through the end, but at least they are consistent. Pyro, Blitz, Bigguy and I represented the Butchers. This win gives us a 7/0 record and puts us in 9th place on the US 4v4 Ladder. Good job Butchers!

The Butchers played their first 4v4 Power Ladder match this President's Day afternoon defeating Check Six, x6, 7-1 on the Insurgent Camp map starting from Assault. We have two upcoming matches, one on the 4v4 Objective Ladder and one on the Open League, so this is in preparation for those matches.

Good games to Check Six, and our members, Bigguy, Blitz, Pyro and myself!

League Win over IAF!

This match was hands down the most exciting match we've had in awhile. We started out on assault and were tied 3-3 by the half. After the half we stepped it up a notch and fought it out to 6-5. The last round they broke through the south taking 8ball, Razor, Radix and Blitz with them, Pyro and I fought them down to 3 guys before Pyro was finished off, leaving me to do the dirty work. I managed to take down all 3 to claim the win. Great Game IAF! I loved every minute of it!

Butchers Too Win!

Bigguy and I played a VERY intense match vs MIB on Weapons Cache. We broke even on defense making the score 3-3 at the half, after moving to assault it looked grim after a quick loss however we came back to take a 6-5 lead. The last round Bigguy decided to see how good I really was so he decided to kill himself. Knowing what I had to do I quickly rushed the north staircase and managed to kill both opfor, see Bigguy now you know I can do it on my own so don't do that again. Great Games to MIB that's the most intense match I have played in LONG time.

Well this was the first time this season we actually got to play a league match. Big thanks to =69th= for actually bothering to show up, unlike most teams that participate in the league.

After numerous delays, it looks like the league will finally be starting on November 10!

#1 Pipeline
#2 Mountain pass
#3 Weapons Cache SE
#4 Radio Tower

«ß» vs -SAW- TWL 2v2

Pyro and I played -SAW- for 2nd place on the TWL 2v2 Team Combat Ladder tonight. We played on the Swamp Raid map crawling through the muck for 12 rounds. Final score: ßutchers - 4, Soldiers At Work - 3. Great match -SAW-!

Welcome New Member!

The ßutchers welcome our newest member, Punisher, formerly of fHr. We look forward to playing him. Welcome!

«ß» vs ST-6 2v2

The ßutchers played Seal Team 6 for first place on the TWL 2v2 Team Combat ladder last night. ST-6 defeated us 4-1, but that is not the news.

Throughout the match Seal Team 6 acted in the most unsportsmanlike fashion that we have seen in TWL, badgering us by typing insults and sarcasm in the Global Chat through several rounds and continuing it between rounds. They only slowed down when the Match Observer asked them to stop.

While these guys are skilled players, they seriously lack in social skills. They were unbelievably bad sports because we played Team Combat and not Team Objective rules on the TEAM COMBAT LADDER!

Poor showing, ST-6!

Congratulations to «ß»Pyro!

I would like to extend my congratulations to Pyro for making first place on the rankings! w00t! w00t!

The ßutchers Now Have a Second Server

We now have an Official SCI Honor server with 12 slots.

«ß» vs [11W]Angels of Wrath

We played a TWL AA 4v4 match tonight on the HQ Raid map. The ßutchers attacked [11W] for 33rd place (after rejoining the 4v4 ladder), defeating them with a final score of 12-0. Fun match and [11W] are always a good team in a server. Good games!

Only a month or so...

Hmm...I guess we need to get around to posting news more often. Since the last update, we've played =RCR= 4v4, and [NR] and {DS} 2v2, going 7-0, 5-1-4, and 10-1-1, respectively. Good games to each of them, and it seems we won't be playing anyone else for a week or so. We had several matches scheduled, but due to the release of 1.7, they were killed, and due to various bugs, our next wave of matches were killed, so until we come off rest on the 2v2 and 6v6 ladders, our only hope for a match is 4v4 in the next two weeks! Talk about a tight schedule, right?

«ß» vs [MARVEL]

The ßutchers defended 8th place on the TWL 6v6 Objective ladder last night against [MARVEL]. It was a very hard fought match on Pipeline - a map on which we have very little experience. After a very challenging and fun 12 rounds, «ß» emerged victorious (7-5) over the superheroes/villains. Very good games [MARVEL]!

«ß» vs ]RPE[ TWL AA 2v2

The ßutchers defeated Royal Penguin Empire on the JRTC Farm map with a final score of 5 Wins, 1 Loss. We were moved from second place to 16th place when I failed to respond to a match challenge from ]RPE[ on February 15th. We have now regained what we lost by forfeit! Good games. w00t! w00t!

«ß» vs «ß» TWL AA 2v2

Happy 1st Anniversary «ß»!

How could I have missed our anniversary?! As of January 16, 2003, the ßutchers had officially been around for one year. Now it's a year and a week, but either way,


It was an excellent first year, and I'm sure we all enjoyed it very much. Every one of us changed immensely, in skill, how well we work together, and in numerous other ways.

We played a total of 52 Ghost Recon matches, with a final record of 38 wins and 14 losses. Our America's Army record as of the 16th showed a total of 38 matches, with 31 wins and 7 losses. That's a total of 90 matches in our first year!

It was a great first year playing together as the ßutchers with all of you, and I look forward to a just as great (and successful) second year!

«ß» vs STS TWL AA League

«ß» vs RDF Fragpin 4v4

The ßutchers played their least enjoyable America's Army game in a rare afternoon match with a Dutch squad. Royal Dutch Forces were disrespectful, vulgar and were unsportsmanlike in every respect.

The ßutchers played Royal Penguin Empire on the Weapons Cache map tonight. ]RPE[ defeated «ß» with a score of 3 Wins, 5 Losses, 4 Ties, but not without a strange occurrence during the second round when we were on Assault. ]RPE[ claimed to have a bug with a player and demanded that we halt the match, but while we typed, their teammates rushed, it would seem to look at our positions.

The ßutchers leave The Rumble Ladder

After our last Rumble match the ßutchers have unanimously decided to reduce our Ghost Recon matching to the Team Warfare Ladder. We are leaving TheRumble ladder effective August 23, 2002.

We feel that TheRumble is the best Ghost Recon ladder in existence and have played 48 Rumble matches making it as high as #2. Many of these matches were very challenging battles of tactics and skill. The question of cheating exists and a working "Anti-Cheat Patch" must be developed to remove the doubts. If such a patch is created the ßutchers may reconsider and return as an unranked squad.

The ßutchers are making the change from Ghost Recon to America's Army (Army Operations) as our primary game. We have entered Team Warfare Ladder's America's Army ladder effective August 24, 2002. It's a great game and we plan to kick some major butt!

«ß» vs Nomad

Featured Squad

The ßutchers are the Featured Squad at Thanks, ßØTA:146 for featuring us! BOTA!!!

New Member-Buddha

The ßutchers would like to welcome Buddha to the squad. He is another Delta Force veteran, and will be a valuable addition.

New Member-GoingPostal

Our newest member is GoingPostal, a fellow Council member and co-founder from {T§} The §ect, who joined us on January 24, 2002. He is a great asset to the ßutchers, as well as a good friend! Welcome to the ßutchers, Postal!

The Beginning of the ßutchers

Welcome to the home of the ßutchers, a newly formed Ghost Recon squad.

The founders of the ßutchers, Razorback, Bigguy and Pyro, come from an elite Delta Force squad, {T§} The §ect. We made the switch from Delta Force to Ghost Recon when the game was introduced. We have recruited the abilities of Blitz, a former Delta Force player and former member of LID and FRM.

Razorback was a Council member and a co-founder of The §ect, so he is familiar with the leadership aspects of a squad.

As a new squad, we are looking to recruit skilled players with good attitudes. We usually have a server up in the evenings, the "Butcher Shop". Please stop by and play a game with us or make a post in our forum!
