In Planetside 1
XDT was originally an outfit on the Werner server of Planetside 1, created by TheBackDoorBanditCrew and others on January 4th, 2004. The outfit steadily grew over the years, but was never considered large, primarily due to its strict recruitment policies. It was often thought by its members to specialize in spec-ops including generator-drops and stealth drain & hacks.
During October of 2005, TheBackDoorBanditCrew stepped down and SkullHunter was appointed as the outfit leader.
In 2006, due to the declining popularity of Planetside, !!X][D][T!! became unsustainable and SkullHunter stepped down as outfit leader, playing with Fight Club for the remainder of his time in the original Planetside.
Vindicater was left at the helm of !!X][D][T!! from then on.
In summer of 2005 !!X][D][T!! applied membership for the New Conglomerate Werner Alliance (NCWA) and was subsequently accepted, joining the ranks of outfits like Fight Club, Brutal Deluxe, Armored Fist, and 58th Marine Corp. Strong inter-outfit relations was established or strenghtened and players enjoyed great levels of teamwork and co-operation.
Though never officially announced, NCWA has since ceased to exist, and XDT can no longer be considered to be part of the alliance.
!!X[D][T!!, now simply XDT, has regrouped for Planetside 2 on the Miller EU server. Key original members have already returned, such as TheBackDoorBanditCrew (now tbdBandit), SkullHunter, Rainbow (now NetRain), Vindicater, LordDraisey, Leksa (now RunoJorma), Nightsabes, XLNTnoobKILLR and Checowskys. Current outfit membership is up to 80+ and growing.
