FraggedNation is a social, competitive gaming community focused on providing a fair and fun location for competing.  You can choose to play inside of a seasonal ladder, multiple sponsored tournaments or events, create your own competition, "Prove-it" Scheduled Clan Battles, or even 1v1 Style "Battle Box" matches.  Your abilities are endless, it is completely up to your wants and needs.

FraggedNation was founded in 2002 by a gamer that was looking for a place to socialize and compete with like-minded players, and dissatisfied with what was available. He went to programming, and in today's vernacular, attracting friends.  These friends developed, and implemented the site you see today and became our constantly growing community.  The goal has always been to have a community where the gamers voice was heard no matter who they were, where they played, or what they wanted to accomplish. The simple concept is to let FraggedNation do the paperwork so gamers can do what they do best: GAME!

Urgent Fury has built its impeccable reputation by providing unique, intuitive and exciting Scenario Based TacMap Tournaments for the last seven years. Competing in Urgent Fury is not only a battle, it is an overwhelming experience. Urgent Fury’s success is credited to the amazing members that make up the community. Our members are committed to playing in a cheat free and respectful environment and do not tolerate any other way. Urgent Fury can be found at
