It was two years ago today (actually about 3 days ago but go with today) that Obsidian in its current form came about with the Planetside 2 Beta. Started with just Arminius, HomerZBT, and myself we slowly grew the outfit into what it is today. I am happy to say that after two years, despite never quite reaching the numbers we wanted, what we did do is create a solid group of elite players. During those first few months two years ago we built friendships that I hope will last forever.
In 2014, we expanded well beyond just Planetside 2 and entered into Mechwarrior Online, Contagion, and World of Tanks. There are countless other games we play but those I consider our largest movements. Also, 2014 held our first in person get together.

Thank you everyone for your continued support of Obsidian and I look forward to further years ahead!
All, Mechwarrior online is about to make some drastic changes which I think will be good. They are introducing the unit (outfits) and community warfare where people can battle for control over the galaxy. I'm very interested in this and I think that cohesion is something that's been missing from the game rather than a bunch of disjointed games. Also, they are introducing a clan vs. inner sphere mode which will have a 12 IS vs. 10 Clan balance. Could be interested.
I know we've fallen out from Mechwarrior online lately but with the updates coming out starting 8/8 - 8/19 (my burfday) I think it could be interesting to try again.
