Our History
The first game of Humans vs. Zombies was played at Mizzou in the Spring of 2009. Since then, the week long game has been played every semester. Currently, Humans vs. Zombies at Mizzou has over 400 players each semester including students, faculty, and visitors from nearby universities.
Humans vs. Zombies at Mizzou was founded by Sarah Hirner who hand picked the original Moderator team. Members included Lauren Miles and Kimi Nolte along with many others whose time and effort made the game possible at Mizzou. The Spring 2009 game used the Dormwire HvZ engine which was later replaced by the HvZSource game engine for the Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 games.
A new generation of Moderators came to power for the Spring 2010 game. This new Moderator team was headed by Joe Myers, Chris Camey, and Mike Knoop. It was their intention to work through the game mechanics which has been problematic in the past and improve Moderator communication with players. For the Fall 2010 game, a new website and game engine were developed by Mike Knoop.
Now, going forward, a new Moderation team takes the reigns every year to add variation and excitement to HvZ at Mizzou.

I'm a junior majoring in plant sciences. I enjoy cooking, music, gaming, anime, and about every nerdy and scientific topic under the sun (or moon). I don't really have any specific dislikes other than people purposefully acting stupid.
