Founded in 1997 by a group of linux lovers in Madeira Island, Portugal. Founded by crow and arrow. back then, defs had about ten members.. and we weren't a clan, we were a linux development team.. or something like that - 1997/98 in 1999, crow came back to Funchal to the army, and then i was about two years without internet.. when i re-entered the net, defs were gone.. forgoten... but the name still remained in my mind. - 1999
meanwhile, arrow also came back to Funchal, and we started to play Quakeworld for fun.. and we became addicted to it.. and there were several leagues running at the time.. like NQL, renegados, etc.. and we tought we could make a team, so we decided to re-born as DEFS .. just a few friends to play for fun crow, arrow, bandit, cangalheiro, carcaju, blackbox, dalton, terrorist). we played quake every day, but we still could not compete with clans like DoD, RoT (i only mention this ones because they were the only clans from our home city.. Funchal).. so we recruted some of our friends that played quake a long time before us.. like NightGirl, Nitemare & Nigurath (ex-dod's) DaSsSsS (ex-iqc), Pau (ex-RiP), Scanx (ex-lots-of-clans :p).. but still, because of lack of time or connections, we coulnd't play as we would like in tournaments and stuff... we just played friendlys and lans.
later on, one of the best quake3arena clans in Portugal broke up.. [K] (kaothic), and most of them were our friends, so we invited them to join defs, (xong & plastik), and also ex [frag] Tyrant, so we could have a quake3arena team, and they did.. so we started to play q3..
some weeks later, on one of my many trys to bring zip (now responsable for our qw team), sl4sh, dr34d (responsable for our q3a team together with xong) and cyrax (all from clan DoD, that also broke up :/) to defs, finaly they accepted! and as they were well experienced players, our team's became a lot better.
