May 11th, 2014 is shutting down on May 25th.

When my brother Max and I set out to make tournaments more accessible in 2010, we never expected the project to be so successful. After thousands of tournaments, 100,000+ players, and 385,546 tournament registrations, it is time for us to move on. There are too many stories to share here, but we will always be grateful for the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of competitive gaming communities, tournament organizers, volunteers, coaches, shout casters, and gamers from all over the world.

While Z33K has always been free, we do not have time or resources to actively drive the project forward. If someone is interested in taking over the project, feel free to contact

Lane and Max Founders

Our aim is to have players from Bronze to Gold league get a shot at competing in a professional, well-made tournament. With this we hope to improve everyone’s skill and still having fun and learning at the same time! Also, this is a perfect environment to get rid of that pesky ladder anxiety! J
