The IRON Brigade is now actively recruiting for IL-2 Sturmovik!

If you are looking for a group of mature gamers (average age of our clan members is 32) with over 180 members from all over the globe that keep "Having fun while gaming" in the forefront of our priorities then we think the IRON Brigade is a perfect fit for you!

Our Beginnings:

The IRON Brigade On-Line Gaming Community was founded on September 1st, 1999, with the creation of the IRON Brigade squad in the Starsiege on-line universe, created by Dynamix. Since that time, we have fielded teams in many other online games, including, Mechwarrior 3, Mechwarrior 4, Diablo 2, Tribes, Tribes 2, Starcraft, Mech Commander 2, Ghost Recon and Neverwinter Nights. Currently, our America's Army, Planetside, Raven Shield, IL2 - Sturmovik and Ghost Recon teams are active, while all of our other on-line teams have been decommissioned yet still have an active player base.

The IRON Brigade Principles:

Our principles are simple here in the IRON Brigade. We take on members who are mature, responsible, and like to work as a team, so as to honor and respect the memory of the brave and heroic members of the real IRON Brigade, who sacrificed their lives for the nation we have today. More importantly, though, we want our members to enjoy the games they play in and find a sense of comradery and community in our organization. Not only do we have fun, enjoying the competition of on-line play, but we have forged true bonds of friendship and sharing between our members, in many more things than just on-line gaming. In many regards, this has been the true secret of our success, in that we are not so focused on just one game, or even on-line gaming in general. Whereas other groups have had great difficulty expanding beyond a single game, the IRON Brigade finds its strength in diversity.

The IRON Brigade Structure:

The IRON Brigade On-Line Gaming Community is a loose confederation of teams, each focused on a different on-line game, yet all following the same principles of the overall community. Each of our game teams are independently managed by their own Command Council (CC), made up of the founding members of each team. As such, no team may attempt to pass regulations directly affecting the way a different CC manages its own team. This arrangement has served us well over the years, allowing each team to forge a tight brotherhood, while maintaining a strong overall community of IRON.

The IRON Brigade is built upon a membership that strongly supports the "Real World Concept", meaning that if real life becomes a factor that overwhelms one of our members, they are welcome to take a leave so that they can take care of real life problems that may arise with total support from within our membership.

The IRON Brigade IL-2 Team:

Our IL-2 Team has been in existence sine the original game release and is comprised of both real and virtual pilots. Our team membership has fluctuated from 5 to 25 members over the last two years. We are currently enrolled in the IL2 Fighter Sweeps and are eagerly anticipating the next cycle. This league fits the principals and structure of the IRON Brigade uniquely as it allows our members to determine when and how often they compete on-line and is flexible enough to take into account those "real world" situations that always crop up when you have something planned.
