Games we play
We play various games together, including (but not limited to) these…
Click the links above for more information about how we play them. If you can gather a bunch of tooters that play a game not listed here, speak to Bennish and he might create a Discord text and voice channel for the game.
We have an active Discord server that we use for both text and voice chat - if you'd like to join [TooT], we will send you an invite. Message Bennish#5301 if you want to join.
At the time of writing, we have 60 members on our Discord server (with admittedly varying levels of activity), but there are quite a few people in the Guild Wars 2 guild who aren't on Discord. Here is a list of the members who could be bothered to add themselves to this list (note that it's quite short because apparently most tooters are exceedingly lazy)…

Feel free to add yourself to the table above once you've registered a user account and asked Ben to give you permissions. Or just tell Ben what to add and he'll add it for you. If you want to do it yourself, you just need to copy one of the existing user lines, paste it at the bottom and then change the values (leave the '|' symbols alone)
Toot Police began life as a group of friends within a gaming community that Bennish (then using the cringeworthy tag “Combatter”… shudders) belonged to called “The Conclave”. There was a group within it and they called themselves “The Woot Police” and they were mainly a bunch of arrogant and toxic pricks. He set up a “rival” group of friends in Conclave as a piss take and called it “The Toot Police”.
This somehow became the name for his Guild Wars guild “The Toot Police [TooT]” (established sometime around 2005??) which continued outside The Conclave after Bennish
was kicked out left.
When Guild Wars 2 was released, [TooT] set up there but a bug in the game meant that the original guild had to be abandoned and a new one created without the “The” in the name, i.e. just “Toot Police [TooT]”
Upon the release of the “Heart of Thorns” expansion, [TooT] didn't have enough active members to claim a Guild Hall and Bennish, disheartened and suffering with mental health issues, decided to let the guild become inactive and joined another guild. Around October 2019, Bennish decided that he was fed up with the politics of the other guild and was unimpressed with the poor leadership, and so, with the help of Kyala, resurrected [TooT], set up a Discord server, and recruited new members. A guild hall was soon obtained and the guild grew rapidly.
In June 2020, [TooT] became a gaming community with support for multiple games : adding in Warframe, Minecraft, and Rocket League.
In June 2022, the first TGRs (TooT Game-Specific Reps) were assigned so that Bennish didn't feel so guilty if he wanted to binge one specific game for a while and thereby abandon other games!
