Joe Swanson

Timezone: MST-7 (no DST) US
Languages: English
About Me: Hello! A little about myself: me and Bonnie have three young boys age 4, 7, and 8. Our life is pretty crazy sometimes. GE certainly has grown from its humble beginnings. I work from home now keeping the servers running and making sure everything is in tip-top shape. My current plan is for GE to be a one-stop community, where you can come enjoy the games you love with other enthusiasts. The dream is for GE to eventually become a full service game-hosting platform. Currently the community's support is what keeps our servers alive and my family fed! So thank you for your support, and welcome to Gaming-Evolved!

Languages: English, a little Spanish
Games played: Atlas, Ark, & Conan
About Me: I started playing Atlas late 2019. After 3 official seasons, I bounced around to a few private servers and ended up at GE in April 2021. I was surprised at the wholesome community I found here, and gladly accepted when Joe asked me to be Admin. Since then I’ve worked hard to make GE the best family-friendly and fun destination for gamers. I'm married to a wonderful hubby and I have a job so I'm not available 24/7, but I keep tabs at all times through my phone. I'm very proud to be Admin with Joe, Bonnie, and the Team. Welcome to Gaming-Evolved!

I'm a day one player for ATLAS and ARK and always try to stay updated on what's going on. After a few seasons on officials, I got pulled into GE. It was my first real experience with an unofficial server and I've never left GE since. I live with my 2 daughters, retired at the age of 45. This gives me time to help Joe wherever I can. I'm very proud to be a member of this kick-butt team we have built up! I hope we all can expand GE into an ever bigger game experience than it already is. We never could've done this without this great team and the even greater community!

Founder Wife

Bonnie Swanson

Timezone: MST US
Languages: English
About Me: Joe and I have 3 young boys who keep me on my toes lol. I'm shy and not super tech savvy but I do help wherever I can. I've always loved helping others. On the first Atlas server Joe played on he found a great company. I would borrow Joe's computer when he was sleeping and gather resources for him. The server slowly became too toxic and the company chose to leave and tried to find a new server. To keep the company together and not deal with the same toxicity- GE was born. Joe created GE to be a non-toxic, family-friendly community without abuse for people to just have fun together. Thanks to the hard work from Joe and all GE staff the server has grown into a huge community. I'm proud to be a part of Gaming-Evolved.

Atlas & Empyrion Admin


Time zone: PST (California)

Languages: English

Games played: Atlas, Ark, & Rust

About Me: I have been a gamer for quite a while. I don't consider myself a "fan-boy" but if you bring up Fallout I will talk your ear off or chat your fingers off. I dabble in multiple genres of games but my passion is for my simulator games. So if you don't see me in one of our games be safe to assume I'm flying virtually around the world or going on virtual road trips. I tend to stay out of voice chats due to my dogs loving to be loud and annoying especially when in chats but if you can tolerate them I'm more than happy to jump in calls and "socialize" for a bit.

Atlas Admin

Yun Lei/Mae (Six Rivers)

Time zone: Central Standard Time

Languages: English

Games played: Atlas, WOW, Conan & more

About Me: I started gaming before PC gaming was a thing...think back to the originial Atari...Pong.
Everquest was my first PC game and met Kelladorn playing it.  (Fun fact:  I hated his guts and dying in a fire was too good for him back then...then I married him....). From there it was World of Warcraft, SWTOR, ARK, Conan, ATLAS, and Final Fantasy XIV (which I do still play).
In real life, I was a manager of a couple of pizza places...don't laugh, they paid amazing...until
the end of last month when my health took a turn (nothing too serious we hope) and I went back to the
local market I worked for about 4 years ago.  I work to support my gaming habit.  I like to spend money
on things I enjoy and looking forward to getting to know everyone.
