What is CyberGamer?
CyberGamer is a website dedicated to competitive online gaming. Completely free of charge we supply users from PC and console (Xbox360 and PS3) with ladders, leagues, forums, file libraries, galleries and much more. These features allow users to immerse themselves in an online community and compete against others with similar interests.
How did we get started?
CyberGamerwas founded by two gamers, Jeremy "Asterix" Klaosen and James "sn@p!" Burroughs on the 9th of April 2007. We've built the website from the ground up. The site has been designed, developed and is maintained entirely by Jeremy & James.

Initially, our goal was to create a home for the Call of Duty (PC) community in Australia by supplying free services such as leagues, ladders and forums. We soon found that in most cases members of the community had gaming interests outside of the Call of Duty series, and so we soon began implementing support for a variety of games.
With the explosion of traffic and interest CyberGamer is attracting today, our emphasis has somewhat changed since we began. Our efforts are now turned to keeping on top of the gaming scene by continuing to add new support for exciting upcoming titles while maintaining quality support for ageing classics. Our structure of catering for both hardcore and casual gamers is of vital importance to us, we want to continue supplying multiple ladders & leagues to accommodate for both demographics. Finally we want to keep our interface fresh and intuitive with our software unique and powerful.
