Founded by Military Veterans

Founded in 2003, the Black Widow Company is a classic gaming community with a military touch. We are highly structured with our own custom software to make organizing effective groups in game not just efficient, but fun at the same time. You will not find a gaming community out there with an engrained culture of organization and teamwork from top to bottom.

Every year BWC takes the time to appreciate the veterans and active duty military personnel that are a part of this community. We recognize the sacrifices made to serve our respective countries and some of you haven't returned home unscathed. Therefore, IgniteGX (Wiggie the Pooh) and Zinthous have decided to once again open the Support Room if you need/want somebody to talk/vent to, also there is a whole section of the forums specifically for veterans to talk and reach out to each other.

As for the rest of us, we should keep in mind BWC was founded by a group of active soldiers who wanted to play a game together. So why don't we honor them by doing just that? Find some friends and get gaming! Have fun and enjoy the freedom our armed forces has bought with their blood, sweat and tears.

"They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. We shall remember them."

Oh hey there, Black Widow Company! The bag's out, it's that time of the year where we need to pay up to maintain our services going forward for the next year. Understanding that we're still living in very trying times, know that even if you're only able to donate a small amount, every little bit helps. Even if you're unable to donate, we're still glad to have you in the community! Thank you to everyone in advance for helping us... Keep the lights on!

This year, due to shenanigans back in the spring, we have more expenses than usual. Therefore, our goal this year is $3,167.74 CAD. We hope to reach this by the end of October.

There are donation incentives (I've heard rumors of a possible "Part 4"). All the information you require will be found in the linked forum thread:
