Helpful Tip:

Do you always get confused between a secret (+s) or private channel (+p)? The answer lies here: secret and private will be hidden from /whois and /list, but information about private channels, such as the topic and modes, can still be found.

Global Gamers is an IRC network that was formed on one simple concept: gaming should be fun! Whether you live for annihilating the competition in a free-for-all FPS or you sneak in a game of Solitaire when your friends aren't watching, we understand. We know games are there to be enjoyed, and we don't want to complicate something that's supposed to be a source of entertainment...

The New User Guide has additional tips to help you get started, and the navigation bar at the top of each page contains links to everything you may wish to know about GG.

9th anniversary festivities recap - Posted by LoreOfSerpents on November 21, 2015

Wow, our 9th anniversary party went by in a flash! Thank you to everyone who helped out, joined in, or just wished us luck. A big thanks to [Aura]Haze, brico, crimson, daemonic, Etrigan, La5eR, and princess_faerie for putting up prizes! We had a lot of fun this year, and we hope everyone who participated did, too!

We started off with a couple of well-known favorites: IRC card games! First up was Milestone, which is a classic IRC game around GG. After several rounds of racing and sabotaging opponents' cars, we had our first winners for the party.

1st - rockitude (2450)
2nd - btQ (2400)
3rd - Bickid (2275)

After Milestone, we brought back the always-popular Cards Against Humanity, or in our case, Cards Against GG. We soon learned that not only was a 5-point limit far too low, but that the bot we were using could stand some more tweaking. Even so, lots of laughs were had as is usually the case with Cards Against Humanity games.

Cards Against GG:
1st - Gamabunta
2nd - Weirdo
3rd - HeavensButcher

After getting warmed up with some games we knew pretty well, we tried out a game that was suggested by our very own crimson, Globulos! Globulos is a fun browser-based game where you fling little round globbies across an arena. The goal is to knock your opponents' King globbies into the pit while protecting your own helpless King from being thrown in. It was our first time trying to run this as an event, and it was every bit as chaotic and wonderful as we were hoping for. We ended up with lots of prize winners from this game because everyone was equally baffled. Thanks to everyone who tried it out with us!

1st - HeavensButcher, rockitude, Tanarin
2nd - T3RR0R15T, Gamabunta, shotssynergy, J0E
3rd - Bickid, btQ, toxy, Weirdo

This year also saw the return of a game we've played once before, Teeworlds! Teeworlds is a free, open-source, fast-paced 2D sidescrolling deathmatch game, perfect for large groups to hop into a server and just destroy each other for fun and profit. And for ease of use, it's now available on Steam!

1st - Blizniak (95)
2nd - shots\\synergy (94)
3rd - JMR (75)

We closed out the party with a game that has brought a lot of activity to GG lately, Unreal Tournament 4! In case you missed it, the new UT is being developed in cooperation with the UT community, and many of the Epic developers working on the new UT hang out in #UnrealTournament to chat with the players and get feedback. For our closing event today, we tried something completely crazy: we made everyone join the same free-for-all deathmatch game on our new Hub server. Then, we subjected our victims to two rounds of normal weapon gameplay followed by two rounds of InstaGib. We originally planned on doing 3 rounds each, but had to improvise when the server crashed after 2 rounds. We had around 20 players in each game, and it was beautiful chaos!

Thanks to Se7eN for helping to get the UT event advertised and up and running, and to everyone else who answered Butta's noob questions!

Here's what our intrepid players were in for:

Just look at this map view!

Unreal Tournament (normal weapons):
1st - shots\\synergy (147)
2nd - DREW-TANg (145)
3rd - nux (135)

Unreal Tournament (InstaGib):
1st - solidsnake (188)
2nd - shots\\synergy (183)
3rd - DREW-TANg (164)

Congratulations to all of the winners! We tried a lot of different things this year, and we're grateful that you stuck with us while we stumbled through. :)

And of course, congratulations to our raffle winners!

Again, thank you to everyone who joined in or otherwise helped make this event so much fun. We're incredibly proud of our community, and we're excited about the next year!
