us a little more insight into the clan.

We started B.O.B on 08/04/2012. We got a big
amount of inspiration from the miniseries and found us in the same
environment in the gaming community, a group of gamers that come to
together on the battlefield and supports one a another not only in the
game but in real life as well.

We started off with 20 members and the game choice was Battlefield Bad Company 2.
How many members are you at now, and what is the current game of choice?
We are 50 Active members now and we stick with the Battlefield range. We are now currently playing Battlefield 3.
What makes the Battlefield series the clan’s game of choice?
