  • Biography

    On October 23, 2015, the Reckless Gaming Network (RGN) was formed by a group of friends and passionate gamers to create a community where people of all backgrounds can come together and have an internet home. Reckless was created on the notion to provide a friendly and community oriented gaming community. RGN wanted to provide a home to the gamers out there that like to play with the friends and meet new like-minded people.


    All seven founders have been members of other gaming communities and we have leadership experience both inside and outside the community. Collectively, RGN was founded and formed a growing and dynamic community that thrives on member contribution. Reckless Gaming is a large gaming community and with it comes expenses, upkeep, management, development, and administration. These tasks require significant volunteer hours, and we maintain an active staff of users who are willing to donate their time to the betterment and long-term development of the community.


    We’re constantly evolving and improving the community based on feedback. Instead of focusing on one game or one server, we focus on the community and offer and environment beyond gaming. RGN is a place for a place for the avid gamer as much as for someone just looking to meet new people.
