    Gaming

    The primary purpose of Zealot Gaming is of course the Gaming, the facilitate it, promote it, encourage it, and make the experience more fun for our members. Our Gaming Division is made up of our Primary Games sections (which may be sub-divided based on region if necessary), top-level popular titles that the community focuses on, and general members who wish to be a part of the community, but may play smaller games, lesser known titles with or without other members. These members, both general community members and those of primary games sections must go through an application processes (the application of which is automated upon registration) in order to be considered a full member. However, the community also allows participation of non-members on our Discord server, though priority in events and activities is given to officially registered members of the community as well as some access on the Discord server and forums which is limited only to members.

    Media

    Social media, including Facebook and Twitter, as well as other services such as Twitch, are now well ingrained into the fabric of gaming, and should be treated with the importance they deserve. As such, a focus on the media aspect of gaming is extremely important for any community who wishes to be successful. To this end, a group focused on media concerns, utilizing and promoting social media, facilitating member content in streams and videos, will exist and report to Community Leaders (of which a specific one may be assigned to lead media efforts).
