Our community originated from the "Dans WoW Servers" World of Warcraft private servers in 2008.
In 2009 the recession was hitting hard and donations dried up so we had to close the server.
In 2011, we started a DayZ Mod server for friends to escape script kiddies that were ruining the game.
The server got popular and our admins built tools to keep on top of the script kiddies and generate money for dedicated servers.
With the announcement of the DayZ Standalone in 2012, active players shrunk and dontains stopped as people waited for a better experience.
Unfortunately that "better experience" in DayZ is still on the horizon 11 years later.
Here is a collection of videos from our community over the years:
