Alphagamer is back!

Originally published at: Alphagamer is back! – Alphagamer

Hi all,

Alpha here, it has been a very long time since I used that name! is back! For those being new here, was a gaming community that was started in 2004 by gamers for gamers to create a non toxic community. It featured games and large supporting communities for Diablo 2, Warcraft, Counterstrike and more. It also organized international LAN parties sizing up to 60 participants coming from the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium and France.

So what happened to Alphagamer?

I think, as for many of us, life happened… a lot of change. The last 10 years in a short summary: I got married, did 2 international relocations (from Amsterdam, NL to London, UK to New York City, US), switched jobs 3 times and completed a Master program at a university in the US. So a lot has happened.

Even though I didn’t keep the community online, my passion for gaming has never changed. It actually only expanded. I currently play on PC, Sony Playstation 5 and Nintendo Switch. Preferred game genres are RPG and city/colony building games. I also started playing board games, which is an interest I picked up during the Covid pandemic, which is what I meant with the fact I expanded my gaming passion.

Anyway, is back. As you can see at this point (the way the website looks) a lot needs to happen for which I will take my time. The goal is to bring back the community it once was, with hopefully some of the old school members returning and obviously welcoming new members!

I will keep you posted on the progress and I expect you will start seeing change over the next couple of weeks.
