Ye Olde Goone Squade is the name of the World of Warcraft guild where Lewis and Simon first met online. They also met nearly everyone else currently in the Yogscast there including Hannah,[citation needed] Rythian, Sips, Duncan, Sjin, Zoey, and others. TotalBiscuit was also a part of the guild as revealed during a Christmas livestream of Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon.

The guild was located on "The Venture Co." EU PVP RP server.

Ye Olde Goone Squade is known as a "Goone" guild because it consists primarily of members of the Something Awful Forums, whom are called Goons.[2] Simon and Lewis, among others in the Yogscast, were also members of the SA Forums.

Ye Olde Goone Squade is abbreviated to "YOGS," which is where the names Yogscast and YoGPoD come from.

Sjin in YOGS[edit | edit source]

In the "About" section of the YOGS home page, a history of the guild is given, in which "the Night Elf Hunter Sjin" is mentioned under the heading "Past Achievements".[7]

Apparently, Sjin was a member of the YOGS guild and became the server's first "Grand Marshal". Because of this, it seems he garnered considerable respect in the guild, as shown in a comment by the user "Bumblina" on the YOGS forums.[8]

Sips in YOGS[edit | edit source]

He was a paladin in their guild under the name 'Sips_'.
