    The Isle Is/Was a great bunch of people dedicated to pretty much everything good about online hardcore play.

    There was a time when the channel almost always had people in it, and there were always people online to help out, have them help you out, play with and so on.

    With the release of WoW and the impending release of GW (it's not out yet, right?) The Isle as it was known on bnet slowly faded away as players moved to other games. It used to be that the Isle threads had to be restarded quite often as they would fill up to the usual limit very quickly ... which as you can see also no longer happens.

    Unfortunately you asked about the Isle a couple years too late :p

    It's not out yet, the release date is 28 april, 27 for people who preordered.

    And it seems I've also heard of this Isle too late... Well, since I'm going to play GW too, maybe I can track them down there :).
    Does anyone know a website or anything? Maybe an e-mail adress of a member.

    Actually the GUILD in GW is called:

    GAME - GAT And Misfits (not sure what the E - stands for)


    Since there are members from both Misfit & GAT that started it from Alpha.

    EDIT:

    I just checked the old Misfit thread and what Xtor says is correct.... GAME did disband .... and it's truely is GW's "Isle of Misfits"

    From what I know, GAME disbanded. If I remember right, a bunch of lamers came in and tried to run the place and it turned into a big headahce. I think the Misfits still have their own little "Isle of Misfits" group going though. If I wind up buying GW, I'll be looking them up. :)

    The most legendary things that are said in this world, things that will be remembered always, no matter what.


    1. "Your deeds of valor will be remembered."

    =================================
    The Isle Of Misfits Address
    =================================
    Our Channel is for those that are here to game,
    But know that you’ll be banned, if you are lame.

    Beggars, botters and those that use ITH,
    Aren’t the types we want to hang with.

    To all those who have come before,
    It’s not our fault that you’re here no more.

    Please leave now, if you’re here to ridicule or to flame,
    Our channel is for decent people, and we don’t want you in our game.

    RESPECT should be the word of the day,
    Without that, a Misfit game is where you’ll never play.

    The RESPECT we expect can’t be traded, bought, or sold,
    It can only be earned, which becomes worth more than gold.

    So if you’d like to join our little group,
    Welcome to The Isle of Misfits troop.

    Remember our motto from which we all smile,

    “Ask not what the Isle can do for you, but what you can do for the Isle.â€

    2. [END]

    "What, I... We're just teaching them democracy.

    What do you mean? Our... uhh Their oil is just NICE, but not important.
    And why are you asking these stupid questions about tortured iraqian prisoners? They were... peacefully interrogated.

    Just stop asking these damn questions of me, ok?"

    -George W. Bush





    So well, the Isle of the Misfit is the 2nd most remembered phrase in this world. Close up to the 1st, but the 1st is merely too legendary to be forgotten.

    mmm not quite it had something to do with responsibility and group meetings. but at that time I had already pretty much left the Alpha. The struggle started because some people were more serious about GW and voice chat than others, and that was that. GW requires a pretty dedicated effort since its a Guild-based game.

    And, just for the record, I believe the proper source of the name was the 1964 claymated (?) "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"...
