The GD was originally created in 1999 as the Großdeutschland Regiment, or GDR, by a group of army buddies that played Starsiege: Tribes in their down time. The clan was modeled on the historical unit of the same name, and took on its style and traditions. The unit rapidly grew in size, and at its peak, nearly 200 members from about a dozen countries called the GDR home. Over the subsequent years, membership has waxed and waned, and the unit changed focus for a time from online gaming to scenario paintball. Today, the reformed GDR is now designated as Panzer Grenadier Division Großdeutschland, or GD, with a focus on gaming in WW2OL:BE as a German combined arms squad with an armored combat focus.
If considering the GD as your new online gaming home, we look forward to having you join us!
If you’re unsure where to start with the GD, a great way is by either registering and posting on our forums, or connecting to our dedicated Teamspeak server and jumping in game with our members. New recruits are always welcome here, and we hope to see you online soon.
