[CENTER]WELCOME TO ZEALOT GAMING: A TRUE GAMING COMMUNITY.
Hello everyone, welcome to your introduction to Zealot Gaming, a community created over three years ago which now boasts over 800 members, over 600 of which are regularly active. At Zealot Gaming, a community made for gamers, by gamers, we strive to provide a fun environment where members grow through experience in teamwork, skill, and networking. While many clans are really "looking for group" organizations, we want to stress that we are more than just a group of people who queue up together in games. While we understand that having people to queue with is a benefit, it should not be the only reason someone wants to join our great community. We are looking for dedicated and motivated gamers who want more out of their games than a simple match history. Are you someone that enjoys partaking in the bigger picture? Are you someone who has ideas to share? Do you prefer to know your teammates better, interacting both inside and outside of games? If so, then Zealot Gaming is right for you!
The mission of Zealot Gaming is to provide and continually develop a fun and friendly gaming atmosphere for its members through creating a strong community setup, engaging members through activities and events, and providing more avenues to game with like-minded gamers. We aim to encourage respectful behavior from all members toward each other and non-members alike, and instill the core values of loyalty, integrity, and zeal in all of our members.
As we mentioned earlier, one of our goals is to create a fun environment for all of our members. Our VOIP server (TeamSpeak 3) coupled with the use of Skype([url]http://www.skype.com[/url]) and the message boards ([url]http://www.zealotgaming.com/forum/forum.php[/url]) makes communication with your fellow members fast and easy. We host custom game nights for all of the games that we support, and also provide contests and tournaments, often with prizes. On top of that we have a simple and efficient leadership system which provides our members with plentiful resources and many opportunities to participate in leading the contributing to the community. But as we mentioned before, you will not really know any of this unless you are involved in the community. Being active on the forums and in the game will ensure that you get the most out of Zealot Gaming.
Zealot Gaming currently supports the following titles:
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (EU)
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (NA)
League of Legends (NA)
League of Legends (EU West)
League of Legends (EU Nordic/East)
League of Legends (OCE)
Strife [Coming Soon]
We are also currently expanding into new games and hope to grow as long as our community is interested! With Strife now being in Open Beta, we want to jump into building our Strife division as soon as possible. Players from any region are welcome to join and people interested in leading the Strife division should definitely apply. Once your account is approved on the forums, you will be directed towards the Strife signup thread in which you need to simply reply. You are then welcome to join our TS3 and post on the forums.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
Zealot Gaming is looking for motivated individuals that enjoy participating in gaming events and clan matters. This does not mean that members need to be outspoken, just that we appreciate those who have input to share. We value maturity, virtue, honesty, and leadership. What this means is that we prefer members who: maintain a positive attitude both inside and outside of games, make good interpersonal choices, and can admit when they have made a mistake. Most often this is all you need when playing with other people.
Also note that we do not accept any applicants under the age of 16 for legal & maturity purposes.
Raging is a very real and sad part of gaming. Our clan has chosen to take a strong anti-raging policy. There will always be games that don't go well, and you cannot win them all. Do not feed troll players and fight back, never rage at your fellow clanmates, and do not use harsh language, especially racial and sexual slurs. Any use of these terms, just as they result in reporting by members in game, shall result in either reporting and warning within the clan, or an immediate ban depending on severity.
Zealot Gaming also supports competitive play. Members are encouraged to play with others and discover who they play best with and form their own teams. All teams are considered "official teams" to ensure that everyone has an equal chance to join a team or start their own. Keep in mind though, we are a casual community, but members are more than welcome to create and maintain competitive teams.
HOW TO APPLY / JOIN
Visit our website at [url]http://www.zealotgaming.com/index.php/join/[/url] to join!
All new members must register an account, confirm their email, and submit an application. Those missing either will be denied and asked to submit both. New members undergo a probationary period during which all members may vote on your membership and vote to remove you from the clan if your attitude and behavior is poor. New members are also expected to fulfill general requirements to become full members and are given 1 month to do so.
When applying, please list your Main Game as "Other Game" in the drop down box, then write Strife as the other game you are joining for. This will help us know you are applying for our Strife division and our staff can contact you as soon as possible.
We are currently looking for fresh faces and potential new leaders who are interested in taking the reigns of our Strife division!
