End is Near was founded on the 10th of February, 2009 by Violent, Red, and Xero. Their goal was to bring together players who played Battlefield for team work, coordination and squad play. When the community first came to be, ^EIN^'s flagship game was Battlefield 2142. End is Near was one of the best competitive teams in 2142, and quickly rose to high spots in various ladders. Shortly after, Battlefield Bad Company 2 was released, which became ^EIN^'s new flagship game. This game brought on a large change for ^EIN^, as our member base multiplied, and our 32 man Conquest server became the 25th most popular in the world. With more members, and a firm foothold in the Battlefield community, ^EIN^ was ready to make the transition into Battlefield 3. Now, ^EIN^ has expanded into divisions. Each division is represented in their own way. Some are elaborate and have their own sub-site in the ^EIN^ Community with their own ranks.
