This is pretty awesome. Thanks, @Juulz!

Of course, this doesn’t include all the members that either didn’t realize we moved (like uh… me for a few months), of those that are Online-phobic and don’t post/join message boards.

If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that we are 2-3x larger than the boards show, people just dont post or make themselves visible.

Still, nice information to have and see for shouting purposes. What would also be nifty to know would be the locations of all these members on a pin map… See the amoeba that is OTG spread acros the globe

That would be a cool idea! Those who wished to opt in could have their pin appear on a world map.

I agree! That would be really cool! Or just a pin without the names then permission wouldn’t be necessary… :slight_smile:

Just browsing and I couldn’t help but notice the huge numbers in the roster and if what is said about the whole 3x the amount that’s insanely amazing. Just thought id give a huge shout out to the guild that I would be honored to be a part of. Keep an eye out for me in the future ;D

It doesn’t matter if your actively playing a game or not , The OTG family is always here

Don’t stare at Hypno Panda for too long she will make you go blind :stuck_out_tongue:

OTG is many things, but small isn’t one of them. :slight_smile:

It’s quite nice to know you’ll find guildies in just about any game you’re interested in. Some games have a large presence, some a small one, but there’s always “family” around.

Just curious, which game has the biggest OTG showing?

I really don’t know, but my wildly uninformed guess would be BDO, just based on the number of new applicants we see in Membership.

OTG pop in games tends to fluctuate wildly, depending on the age of the game, expansions, etc. It’s not uncommon for us to have over 1000 members for a popular new launch, for example.

Or maybe if you add up both Horde and Alliance WoW chapters they might be close to the number in BDO…

We need a survey! Bring some ding-dang Science into this. Number of members online during peak hours, multiple samples over several weeks. Spreadsheets!!! And I know who’d be perfect for coordinating this: @Hashberry! :smiley:

I couldn’t help but stare at this for an unhealthy amount of time.

Also it would be neat to be able to read about the journey OTG took from the beginning-to-now, i just submitted an application today to join up, but i’ve known about you folks for a number of years, so it would be interesting to read how it all got started. :slight_smile:

EDIT: I spoke too soon! xD Found a thread with the Guild history in it.

It’s really fascinating that you folks essentially began in DDO, i really miss that game (don’t miss the character models) but i miss it just the same.

We’re still there!

The game that has the best event going on at the moment or the newest big release.

(Just an observation from one of the earliest members still carrying on.)

Thanks for keeping track of these statistics and publishing them. Very useful and interesting information. I remember the days - when big, new MMO’s came out and we would have 500 - 1000 otg guild members in game. I’m looking forward to the next big, new MMO and I’m ready to rumble. hehe.

Oho Dread, be careful what you wish for…you might not get what you thought… :rofl:

I rarely do get what I think I will. Usually I get what I deserve, instead. :stuck_out_tongue:
