About Ten Ton Hammer

Built as a community nurturing network from the ground up, Ten Ton Hammer provides gamers with one of the largest selections of free MMO guides on the internet, along with quality features, editorials, previews and reviews of your favorite games. Massively multiplayer online roleplaying games are our passion, and we aim to provide the best and most relevant information possible to our readers daily.

The Ten Ton Hammer network is owned and operated by Master Games International Inc., a corporation founded in 1997 by chess organizers, International Grandmasters and patrons of the game.

Ten Ton Hammer Network Management

John Hoskin
Chief Operations Officer
Alias: Boomjack
Email: john[at]tentonhammer.com

John was originally brought on board by Master Games International to market their chess site (WorldChessNetwork.com) but proceeded to convince the board of directors that MMO gaming was a lucrative market still in its infancy. The board proceeded to instate John as the C.O.O of the newly forged Ten Ton Hammer, and the rest is history.

Before joining Ten Ton Hammer, John opened the first public Internet Service Provider in Southern Ontario in 1993, which later branched out into content creation. He’s been in the computer game industry since 1996, when he founded the original GameStats.com. He now lives with his family in a tiny town in Ontario, Canada.

Reuben Waters
Editor-in-Chief

Reuben began his career at Ten Ton Hammer in 2008 as a volunteer on our Age of Conan community site and quickly rose through the ranks from Managing Editor to Editor-in-Chief and Content Director in late 2012.
