A Worldwide Legion of Power Gamers
DROW Mission Statement:
---Our mission is to be the most well known, respected, and feared group of competitive gamers on the planet. We will accomplish this goal by sponsoring many teams in the most popular and competitive online gaming formats. We will retain members who not only have world-class talent, but will practice honor, loyalty, and commitment.
Above all else, we will do it for fun... And to build a brotherhood that will last forever.
---Drow started out life as just a Quake clan. In 1996, Kalorin and Hammer decided to start a Quake clan. This was just after the first commercial launch of Quake 1. Kalorin and Hammer then recruited Doc, the third member. At the time the name for the clan had not been decided. Kalorin, being a D&Der, suggested Drow because in the D&D world, they are known as a very feared race. Neither Hammer nor Doc could come up with something better, so Drow it was.
Shortly after, mIstabone from clan DAWG started frequenting servers that the 3 Drows played on. During one FFA game, mIstabone came out on top. Afterwards, Doc challenged mIstabone to a 1 on 1 deathmatch. Doc won, but it was a close fight. Impressed with mIsta's skill, Doc managed to convince him to become the fourth member of Drow. Soon after, the Drow ranks began to grow. Members such as TicK, Kayan, and Trystan would be the first of several to join.
Since then, Drow has gone on to sponsor teams in Ultima Online, Everquest, Anarchy Online, Dark Age of Camelot, PlanetSide, City of Heroes, City of Villians, Final Fantasy XI, Star Wars Galaxies, Everquest 2, World of Warcraft, EVE Online, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Global Agenda, Age of Conan, Aion, Vanguard:Saga of Heroes, Warhammer Online, and RIFT.
As of March 2010 teams are being looked at for Star Wars: The Old Republic and the RIFT team is now up and and running strong!
