Welcome to ROTN. We are a North American Quake Live Insta Clan that was established in the early part of 2011 after an Elite clan turned down my (DC) application – FU BrethrenX…er uh B4! lol – j/k – luv ya man! That’s when REVENGE OF THE NOOBZ was born and we proceeded to build a team that would later beat that Elite clan in the WFL. (REVENGE!!!) lol
We have been through a WHOLE hell of a lot in 3 years, and we are hopefully looking to be around for a while, QL willing…
Back in 2010 I showed my then 11 year old son Quake Live. I’d only played the original Quake back in the day once or twice. We both immediately got hooked and were playing many hours every day.
Sucking bad at all weapons, I found insta…and a home.
When we started, I noticed a lot of the really good players came from clans like OK and RIP (rip RIP). One of the leaders of OK at the time (BrethrenX) kind of took me under his wing (by proceeding to whoop my ass over and over – must have been fun because he did it a lot).
Long story short, I applied to that “elite only” clan, OK (yes, ALL of their players were good) and me being a sucky noob, got denied. My son (kola) at the time (13urri3d aliv3) suggested that we start our own clan that was just for noobz wanting to learn the game – and hence the name REVENGE OF THE NOOBZ aka ROTN was born.
Living up to our name with some awesome, even world class players, was a really fun and very competitive experience. We got hard core and quickly climbed the ranks to become among the top respected clans in QL, and maybe still hold a bit of that status today. ROTN has spawned off many great players over the years that have very recognizable names today. We are proud of our roots and the rich (with drama lol) history of the past few years.
People come and go, but they take a little ROTN with them…Once a ROTN, always a ROTN — it’s like herpes.
