MOD (Ministry Of Darkness) online gaming team was formed
back in 1999 by two fellow gamers Mark "S@NDM@N" Woodhouse & David
"GenMonkey" Fisher. The team has been playing in online
tournaments & leagues for over 13 years. Starting off life in the first
person shooter "Half-Life" and the gaming
mod "Opposing Force" before moving into Half-Life
Deathmatch & the hardcore world of "AG" (Adrenaline Gamer) another mod for Half-Life
developed by a group a extreme gamers. After 3 and a half years of taking part
in Europe's bigger online gaming leagues for Half-Life "The
HLCCL" the team called time on Half-Life & AG finishing up
the 2003 season with 2 European, 1 USA team and 1 Canadian team to start over
and ventured into the gaming scene that is "Counter-Strike", by which
time Counter-Strike:Source had just
The team quickly became a house hold name in Counter-Strike:Source within the
UK scene and despite it's 'old skool' players being mostly ex-Half-Life
DeathMatch fraggers they all soon got to grips with the slower and more
tactical game style of Counter-Strike. Team MOD slowly moved up just within the
top 10 teams in the UK attending i30, i31, i33, i34, i35, i36, i37, i38, i39,
i40, i41, i42, i43 & i44
multiplay gaming LAN's. Although reliability in
fielding a reliable 5 man team for events has always prevented the team in
making a big impact against teams such as "Dignitas", "4Kings" & "Reason-Gaming" MOD has been able to compete and
win against teams such as "CoolerMasters" &
"FragMasters" over the years.
We have also had teams go to epic.FIVE &
epic.SIX UK LAN events. MOD also had an Icelandic
team who won two Gamer.LAN events in Iceland as well, bringing home glory. With
the release of Counter-Strike Global Offensive
MOD is still going strong and currently has 3 semi-active teams playing in the
UK & Europe which can be found below:
MINISTRY is the oldest of our teams, it was the
original MOD line up formed by Sandz in 2004, before changing in 2007 to the
name "MINISTRY" under the leadership of Thunder. They wanted to set
themselves apart and have a cool name, with the tag line of "the boyz from
the Ministry". MINISTRY is now currently led by Matthew "Holl1s"
Hollis and the team is looking to compete at various lans across 2012.
eXtreme is one the longest running and most stable
teams within the community. It was formed in February 2007 and whilst has
chopped and changed line ups, it has a record of never folding, and always
working through the issues around the team. The team is currently led by Ciaron
"LT" Morrisey and he and the boys are looking to get competitive
again within 2012.
