Fat Rat Gaming is basically .. TeamKillas: The Next Generation
TeamKillas was a Socom message board established on May 4th, 2004. The T*K clan and board were run by Teed, and Siken, the board was moderated by MiamiFinFan86, plus Ma Teed threw in her website design skills, and added a moderator assist when they were all in school (middle & high school).
T*K was one of the world’s largest Socom message boards. We’re still trying to find an archive with its exact number, but if our memory isn’t exaggerating, T*K had like 10,000 members when “it’s doors closed”. This was back before all the social media sites, it grew by Playstation headphone’d word-of-mouth.
Eight years later, the OG‘s moved on from Socom, are now playing different games, have graduated from high school, are in/out of college, and they have decided to grab their new favorite game, with their new gamer friends, and start “it” all again!
Why Fat Rat Gaming?
You can stop reading here, this probably won’t be interesting, but it’s being included for Dooo & Giggles.
When Teed decided to bring back the site, briefly he thought of using TeamKillas again, but no one is playing Socom now. He’s been playing World of Warcraft and Call of Duty, Psyken (formerly Siken) is playing all sorts of games, and FinFan is into Assassin’s Creed. so Teed decided to use Teedsters.com which matches the YouTube account.
Teedsters was originally Teed’s father’s motocross blog from back in the day. However, after a few days, Teedster asked that the Teedsters.com name not be tie-up because he has always intended to bring back his blog when his time frees up.
Back to the TeamKillas.com domain name drawing board.
After a few, shortlived moments, TeamKillas was cast aside again because it was decided we didn’t want people to think we were exclusively a Socom or a first person shooter website. Sooo …
After trying too many names to count, Kimberly was on Deviant Art and saw a cool-ass illustration of an evil looking bunny. Teed like it, but didn’t see gaming bunnies as something to represent his site. A few verbal twists and the bunny turned into a rat and fat rhymes with rat which makes it memorable. A quick check of FatRatGaming.com on Teed Hosting showed it was available.
Still here? Wow .. thank you for being a devoted fan, or really, really bored
