The Brotherhood is currently a closed group that was previously known for recruiting members for sections like Gaming, White Hat Help, Computing, Pentesting, Graphics, Music and Server Administration. The group previously hosted a "Spy Squad" that worked towards exposing members who were multi-accounters, account sellers, and account buyers. Today, the group is focused on teaching members how to become White Hat Helpers.
The group was initially invitation only, but opened recruitment due to such high interest from members in joining the group. The group was formerly known as the Marketers, until it was closed due to members' involvement in massive thread bumping. It was purchased by Cryptic™ and remained a blank group for approximately a month, until June 2013. In November of 2013, the group had plans to sell to another member and become something else, but they ended when the member xflat purchased Connected's leadership in the group.
The group actively recruits in its range of areas, recruitment threads are area-specific and are most commonly listed by a sector leader.
