History

Zealot Gaming was founded in March of 2011 as a highly-structured multi-game forum-based community by two clanmates tired of their current community, wanting to take what worked from their current home, but implement fixes to problems they saw in their own way. It was slow going at first, with no real direction or games to move into, but soon found a place as the friends dove headfirst into League of Legends.

What started out as only a North American division for League quickly expanded into other regions including EU West and EU Nordic/East. Over the years, the community had a presence in many games such as DOTA 2, Guild Wars 2, TERA, Elder Scrolls Online, CS:GO, Dawngate, Smite, and others.

The community also went through many different organizational structures. On top of gaming, the community tried to foster a place for members to express their creativity through writing for the community newsletter, streaming, making YouTube videos, creating digital art, etc. We also tried to maintain a fair system of dealing with problems, though given how young we were, it was far from perfect. With all the games and people to juggle, structure was often the go-to solution, leading to over 21 different changes in organization over our most active years.

Eventually, as members left and leaders grew up, we moved to Discord and slowly retired our forums. The face of gaming changed, and so did what many of us wanted out of a community. For several years, Zealot Gaming remained a hub for older members to have a place to reconnect, but was for all intents and purposes, inactive. While it is not as bustling as it once was, we hope to change that in the near future. The community will be very different from what it once was, a better, more inclusive, adult version of itself. We hope you will take part in writing the next chapter of our community’s history.
