Welcome to the home of the great clan of [BTF]
|Joining the Family|
Brothers of Tru Fragging
"Let not who we are be known for our tag,
but let our tag be known for who we are."
We are a FFA based multi game family who believe in sportsmanship, positive influence through positive actions, being helpful and showing respect to other players and admins alike, and good conduct (in game and on forums.)
We will get together for a game at the drop of a hat, drink, and be merry.
We try hard to be known NOT for the tag we wear or the name we share but for who we are.
IRC is our home, we live there and visitors are always welcome at the IRC server "enterthegame", channel "#BTF".
Quake II is and always will be our main game and the trunk of our tree .
Over time though that tree has grown to include many branches. Like Call of Duty 1 & 4 and F.E.A.R., and many other games we play as a group.
It doesn't matter if we're fragging hard and fast in Quake 2, sniping in Call of Duty, or going for the Particle Weapon in F.E.A.R. we're not out for world domination, having fun as a group and close kinships are our #1 goal.

- trueˇness noun
Frag is a computer game term, used in first-person shooter deathmatch. A frag is a killcount; one gets a frag if one kills ("frags") another player. In some games, one also loses a frag for killing oneself (called a "suicide", even if unintentional), for example, by falling a long distance or discharging a rocket directly into a nearby wall.
One does not usually lose frags for being killed by another player. This leads to the game theoretical consequence that one should engage in combat with another player unless severely outmatched because the potential benefit (one frag) outweighs the potential harm (lost time for respawning and the opponent, who may not be ranked first, getting a frag).
In this context the term "frag" is used to replace 'killing' or 'dying' as these terms are final - whereas first person shooters usually allow instant reincarnation. The usage of the term fragging is also a response to advocates of computer game censorship, who argue that violence in games can cause violence in real life. Most fps game players maintain that the obvious fantasy of computer games acts as a barrier preventing this cause-effect relationship. The term 'fragging' rather than 'killing' thus becomes a semantic indicator of the distance of the violence from any real act.
Fragging is sometimes contrasted with "gibbing", or blowing the enemy player into smithereens. When one shoots another player's character, they have been fragged. When one shoots another with a rocket launcher, and little bits go flying everywhere, they have been gibbed. (The smithereens are called 'gibs'.) Both can be referred to as 'frags', however.
