Description: Zealot Gaming is a mulit-platform gaming community that fosters friendship and friendly gaming. We're a clan that supports various games and is always growing. In just a short year we've grown to over 200 members, and seek to encourage loyalty, integrity, and zeal while gaming. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere that enhances the gaming experience and attempts to banish the negatives such as raging and flaming.

Reason for Nomination:

We do not have a custom theme or anything, however I believe the combination of modifications and their implementation are pretty great. We've also grown into a great community in only a years time and are already establishing a name for ourselves in various games. We're always encouraging member involvement and play and recognizing members for their participation and skill.

Thanks guys!
