YOGS – Ye olde Goone Squade 20202020-07-17T18:33:50+00:00

Who we are

It all started on the forums. The Something Awful forums were an early internet hotbed of absurdist humor, a wretched hive of scum and shitheads. Having an account there cost you ten bucks and made you a goon.

Soon, goons of similar interest would band together and expand to other communities. They made their mark on Eve Online, they raided Habbo Hotel, some of the more crass specimens founded 4chan and from the very start of World of Warcraft, there were Goon Squads.

YOGS – short for “Ye olde Goone Squade” because RP – lay dormant between Warlords of Draenor and the tail end of Battle for Azeroth as most of the players moved to our Horde sister guild “Goon Squad”. To freshen things up and once again play characters that live in cities built from brick and mortar, some of us are banding together for a YOGS rennaissance in the upcoming expansion Shadowlands.

Please know that while the YOGS of old was known for their dark humor, edgelord chat rules and general goondickery, the new YOGS no longer stands for this.

This is not a joke. We’re not putting this here as a fig leaf. We’ve just all grown the fuck up.

In 2020, the new YOGS will be a welcoming and inclusive guild, a group of like-minded people who join together to play World of Warcraft in a way that’s fun for everybody involved. We welcome all goons and BFFs of goons – but be forewarned: we do not allow hate speech or intolerance, be it racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia or ableist slurs. If you want to be an edgelord all your life, please do so outside of YOGS.

If this sounds like your kind of jam, feel free to check out our Discord and get on board for the next expansion.


What server and faction are you on?2020-07-10T16:48:11+00:00

YOGS is an European World of Warcraft Alliance guild on Defias Brotherhood EU. If your character is on one of the connected servers – those being Scarshield Legion, Ravenholdt, The Venture Co and Sporeggar – you can also be invited to the guild.

How do I join?2020-07-10T16:48:16+00:00

Your first stop should be our Discord, which you can find here. Upon joining you will be in a “#welcome” channel where you receive further instructions on how to proceed. Please familiarize yourself with the rules laid out in #welcome. We’re serious about those.

Do you raid?2020-07-10T16:48:22+00:00

While YOGS is mostly a social guild – where like-minded people get together to have fun – we also fielded a successful raid team in Battle for Azeroth. It is very likely that we will be raiding again come Shadowlands. How far we will go or how many raid teams we will be able to support depends entirely on the roster of people who can agree on common raid days. Our goal in raiding however is first and foremost beating the Heroic version of the raid. We don’t aim for mythic clears.

Is there a Horde guild as well?2020-07-17T18:32:52+00:00

Our Horde sister guild is Goon Squad on Defias Brotherhood EU. Their SA post with information on how to join can be found here.

What’s this about steamboats?2020-07-10T16:52:12+00:00

Goon Squad (our Horde sister guild) had several raid teams. A sizeable chunk of the people who decided to switch back to Alliance side was in a raid team named “Steamboat Express”.

Are you affiliated with the YOGSCAST?2020-07-11T08:54:40+00:00

The YOGSCAST wiki will tell you that the name YOGS came from a World of Warcraft guild that some of the early YOGSCAST content creators were a part of. While this is indeed that guild – we moved from The Venture Co. to Defias Brotherhood when guild transfers opened up but before realms were connected – we are not an official YOGSCAST guild. If there were members of YOGSCAST still playing with us, they would be doing so privately. If you want to check out everything that the YOGSCAST has to offer, drop by their website.
