In recent years, we at Leave as Group have held fundraising broadcasts for various charitable causes, including Mental Health & Amnesty.
What was then a small gaming group, had no hopes or goals that it would become the community it is today. In October 2018, the small group decided to go "public" to Twitch.tv Norway and around. they had already played a lot and got to know Tinasaurus and Stekare1k for a while, they felt it was natural to invite them first. Both accepted gracefully and became the first members who were not from the start and neither from the same district. Leave as Group's "popularity" increased after our first IRL meeting; LaG-LAN and Christmas table in December 2018 which was arranged at niceleedone and broadcast via twitch.tv both from the home and the room where the Christmas table was arranged. At the Christmas table, the participants also got a little surprise that the diligent, kind and humorous streamer Finnsdal had chosen to join the ranks. The time from LaG chose to try their hand at Twitch Norway until the meeting, they had 10-12 members with i.a. gody and Slettern from Oslo entered via a couple of successful hours of playing.
In January 2019, the popularity increased considerably after a 37.5 hour charity stream from the apartment to Slettern in Oslo. The broadcast was hosted by niceleedone, Slettern, gody and Taake, in addition to NinaTV, Snappy, RubenGKS and MissSof being guests. This ended up in 32,500 NOK collected and passed on to the organization Amnesty Norway. LaG went from there with his head raised high after a lot of positive feedback and applications to join this community knocked on the doors. The name Leave as Group comes from the game Overwatch where you get the choice "Leave as Group" when you end the round, this could then be abbreviated LaG which can be interpreted with several different meanings in both Norwegian and English, that was it!
What and why First and foremost, Leave as Group is a Gaming / Streaming Community, a community, a community and in no way calls itself an organization or professional e-sports team. We manage this at our own leisure and all members, regardless of category, participate with their own free will and desire. LaG does not require a membership fee. We demand nothing but mutual respect from our members. Our main goal is to appear as a nice and pleasant society where all members show themselves and behave respectfully both inside and outside the community.
We at Leave as Group want to create a good society for both games and streaming, where we also help each other create a good atmosphere around. You do not necessarily have to be the best in a game, it's just a good bonus if you are. Our focus is more on personality and how one appears around the environment. We focus most on creating a community that our members like to be a part of. Forces no one to use or promote anything. It is not forced to use the logo or use the clant tag. You use, place or promote as you wish.
