Yogscast Website SummaryEdit

Tom (aka Tom II) joined the team in 2013 as an editor. Upon the realisation that he was the second Tom on the Yogscast team, Tom II was forced to do battle with Tom I, the winner of which would be granted the title 'Tom of YogTowers', the loser would be stripped of all naming rights, only to be referred to as 'Old No Name'. The blood bath that ensued ended in an anticlimactic draw and it was decided that the name be split between both Toms.
