The Blackthornes were founded in early 2001 playing Dark Ages of Camelot during their Alpha. We grew from a small twelve person guild into an alliance spanning ten different guilds and over one thousand players. With our friends in the Blackthornes Alliance we became the undisputed masters of the DaoC Gawaine server.
As time passed we moved on to other games such as Warhammer Online, and in doing so we took some of our best former enemies with us as new friends and members. We currently have a few hundred members still registered on our old forums, linked on the left, and we have recently created this new site to simplify web management and improve our presentation.
As a whole we are a group of older players, many of us are former military but we count many professions in our ranks. We have no time for people who can’t maintain a polite, professional attitude both in game and in dealings with our extended family here.
We play to have fun and we are VERY competitive, but we do not maintain anything resembling mandatory play times or the like. When you log in to play, expect to have fun, but also expect to be part of a team focused on winning while doing so.
We currently run a 512 person Teamspeak 3 server and we are actively recruiting for MechWarrior Online, Planetside 2 and Guild Wars 2. You can find our Teamspeak servers in the forums once your application has been accepted. If this seems like the place for you then we would love to have you in our ranks. We would welcome the chance to get to know you better, and for you to get to know us better, on a trial basis.
Current members just put who you are in the text box and you will be added. All others, please fill out the short survey and we will respond ASAP.
