LoLKing was founded by Fishsticks and Ignis in January 2012. The idea for the site was born when they found themselves looking for more information on their opponents on the Fields of Justice. Since they happened to be developers in addition to huge League of Legends fans, they created the summoner database themselves for personal use. Eventually they decided to release their project to the public eye as LoLKing!
Thanks to the support of many League of Legends players, LoLKing was able to get outside resources to help keep up with its growth. The ZAM Network picked up LoLKing in May 2012 where it joined their growing roster of sites that includes Wowhead and D3DB.
Tom co-founded LoLKing with Jerod. He's involved in every process of the site--from its current layout which he designed to deciding LoLKing's overall direction.
Tom has been a gamer for a long time, spending a lot of his time on Counter-strike and Starcraft before succumbing to League of Legends. Tom first met Jerod at UCSD where they ended up taking computer science classes together and becoming friends.
