Welcome

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...

Getting Started

Join us on IRC! If you have an IRC client already simply connect to irc.globalgamers.net to get started. You can also join us from the comfort of your favorite web browser using the Webchat. 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.


Global Gamers Network News

Global Gamers is changing, it's coming... - Posted by Etrigan on September 18, 2014

As you all might be aware or not aware (we won't tell), news has been slow around these parts but we are still very active on the network supporting our local communities and users. It's time to break the silence and give you a sneak peek of what will be coming your way in the near future.

Previously, with the help of koen and myself, we created our very own, "Global Gamers Community Feedback" form which allows our users to send their comments, concerns, suggestions directly to the staff on how to improve your current and future IRC experience. We can't thank you enough for all those who have participated thus far and can't wait to hear more. If you haven't sent us your feedback yet, you can still do so via this link - Global Gamers Community Feedback

The feedback we've received has been a tremendous help, and we hear you loud and clear! I would like to announce that we are moving forward and implementing the first change:

Privacy changes for ALL users

Our current network system shows to the general public your IP address when joining channels which is normal in the IRC environment, below is an example:

Joins: Etrigan (ident@c-77-777-77-77.hsd1.fl.comcast.net)


While this is standard for IRC, we agree with user feedback and believe it's important to mask part of the IP, and we will soon be implementing a change to address this concern. Unfortunately, to ensure that the change propagates correctly for all users on the network, we are expecting to need to bring the network down briefly.

What this means for you when connecting to the network, your IP address will be hidden from public view by default, as the example displays below:

Joins: Etrigan (ident@GlobalGamers-2901190C.hsd1.fl.comcast.net)



Important information:

What: Integration of privacy changes
When: TBA but ideally before the end of the month
How: Requires full network restart

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Along with that update, the staff would like to emphasize that custom fakehosts are still available and supported.

If you wish to further hide your hostmask, you can send us a HelpServ request for a custom fakehost -> /msg HelpServ your_request

With these upcoming changes, there will be many questions asked and we'll gladly answer all of them. Below, you will find some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the above:


1) Will my account be affected?

No, your account will not be affected. All settings, channel access etc.. will stay the same.


2) Are we able to still request custom fakehosts with these new privacy changes?

Yes, we still support custom fakehosts with these new privacy changes. If you wish to receive one, send us a HelpServ request -> /msg HelpServ your_request


3) I have a custom fakehost on my account, will I still be able to use it?

Yes, your current fakehost on your account is still accessible and usable.


4) Will I still need to apply +x to my account through scripts, perform or NickServ?

No, applying +x to your account isn't needed since the new IP mask is automatically applied when you connect to Global Gamers.


5) What if I hate this new setting? Can I disable the new host?

You are free to set mode -x if you really want to display your actual host. The command is below:

/mode nickname -x


6) I still have unanswered questions, where can I receive additional support?

We are always available through various supported methods, you can contact us through our:

1) Main channel #GlobalGamers,

2) HelpServ system -> /msg HelpServ your_request

3) Support email: support@globalgamers.net or

4) Twitter, for those who wish to use it -> @GlobalGamers


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Again, thank you for all of your support! Don't hesitate to get in touch with us about any questions or concerns you have about this change.

Community News - Around the network - Posted by Etrigan on September 15, 2014

(Stay tuned for even more news this week)

Our community is what forms us and without them, we wouldn't be here. These are some recent news that has happened over the past few months for our community:

BeyondUnreal

BeyondUnreal joined Global Gamers this summer, bringing the UT community even closer together. They had this to say about it:

"Moving IRC... wheee!

When BeyondUnreal launched in 2001, there was only one Unreal Tournament game. We had taken off from PlanetUnreal only a short time previous and we were an active community of UT players. So, naturally, when we opened our IRC channel, we opened it on the network with the official UT channel and the largest segment of the UT community.

All these years later, and the utchat.com server has moved, the UT community has moved, and where we are feels pretty abandoned. There hasn't been much of a UT community and we feel like the best place for an official Beyond Unreal IRC channel is where the UT community thrives.

Starting today, we are going to be officially moving our registered channels to Global Gamers. For the most part, this simply means changing the IRC server you currently connect to to irc.globalgamers.net and joining the same #beyondunreal and #fragbu channels you might be joining today."

Solitude

Announcing Solitude, A Coop Space Survival Game

"After months of blog posts alluding to our current game in development, we're ready to let everyone know what we're up to. Announcing...

Solitude is a cooperative multiplayer action survival game set in space. We're a big fan of space games and feel there aren't enough cooperative games out there, however players may play on their own if they choose to do so with computer controlled crew mates. The game is played from a first person perspective as a crew member of the Solitude."

Gigantic:Unleashed

Press Event

"A few months ago, when I first heard about Motiga, I got curious, so I opened up the award winning (I gave it some awards) Motiga:Unleashed website, in hopes of figuring out just what Motiga was up to. We took on a position of complete and utter speculation, despite our best attempts at bribery and blackmail, we could not break through the rock hard shield that was their NDA.

We did however have some fantastic fun along the way. We wrote some really fun articles about the developers, and some of their art work. Our first real adventure came in the form of a Twitch chat with Joe Pikop, a character artist, and as I would later come to find out, pretty funny guy. Those interviews started becoming more and more frequent, we spoke to quite a few people before a sad event occurred."

Tree of Savior

Questions and Answers about ToS #13

imcGames released the English Questions and Answers about TOS #13.

Hello. I am syKim from TOS Development Team. I will answer the questions that we have received from various sources and also introduce you the new classes in the game. TOS is a game which is currently under development so the answers that are given below can be changed in the future when we start the official service of the game.

Q) Can Alchemist or the other classes that are specialized in crafting also engage in other activities while crafting items in the game?
A) No. They can't. That's why we allowed those characters to stay in the game even if players log out from the game when they are engaged in crafting that requires a long period of time.

Q) Are there any classes that are specialized in music such as Bards? I want to play flute or horn in the game. And Ukulele as well!
A) We haven't decided whether to include a class related to music. However, if you use vuvuzela which is a sub-weapon, you can make vu- vu- sounds.
