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

GG party news and network updates - Posted by LoreOfSerpents on October 11, 2014

Lots of network news to catch up on!

First and foremost, Global Gamers will be celebrating its 8th anniversary on Saturday, November 8! Mark your calendars for a day full of IRC events and prizes! If there's any event that you're really interested in seeing, just stop by #GlobalGamers and let us know.

Okay, on to the maintenance. We previously posted that we were going to be deploying a privacy change around the end of September. As you probably noticed, it's now October and we still haven't applied the update. What's going on?

Well, as we continued our tests, we discovered some less than ideal interactions between the privacy settings and account-based bans. We've been working on tweaking that behavior and updating some of the ban code to be smarter in general. We're currently trying it out on our test network.

And a whole host of server updates:


  • A new Texas server is trial linked, which we hope will be stable enough to replace boss.

  • A new east coast US server will begin its trial link next week.

  • icarus is back from its upgrades and is trial linked.

  • We're testing out a new webchat server in light of kraken's recent netsplits.

  • kraken will be leaving the rotation soon for some maintenance which will hopefully resolve its connectivity issues.



Thank you all for your patience! We now return you to your regularly scheduled gaming!

Looking to the future of Unreal Tournament - Posted by LoreOfSerpents on October 5, 2014

Last week, Epic Games surprised the gaming world and announced the opening of two official IRC channels on Global Gamers. They're definitely following through with their promise to revisit their roots for the next evolution of Unreal Tournament!

The new channels are aimed at getting players more involved with the game's development, which is a lot of fun to see. #UnrealTournament is Epic's official channel for fans to chat with the UT team. Contributors to the project can join #UTContributors to discuss development and get their questions answered.

This unique community-driven collaborative approach means you can have a direct impact on the game and make sure it's something you want to play. If you want to help contribute, you can get started today! Step 1 Step 2

With all of these changes, it's a very exciting time for Unreal Tournament. BeyondUnreal has been a devoted resource for gamers basically since the dawn of Unreal Tournament, and their home in #beyondunreal has become the largest channel for UT news and development discussions on the network. On the competitive side, #ownedwell broke our user count record this weekend when Owned Well hosted its inaugural King of the Gib tournament. Congratulations to Owned Well on a very successful launch!

Not to get all sappy, but we've been thrilled to watch the Unreal Tournament community thrive on our network over the last eight years. What started as a fragmented group of old school gamers has evolved into something special, and we're proud to see this resilient community determining its own destiny. A lot of that is thanks to the vision of one of our original staff members, Se7eN, who saw what the UT gamers could accomplish if they were united, and the enthusiasm of our Community Team (go Etrigan!) to make sure the community continues to have what it needs.

Thanks to all of our users for making Global Gamers what it is today!
