Celebrating 12 years of Quake!
Global Gamers

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.

Quake Expo Events - hosted by Global Gamers

What makes Global Gamers special?

  • The Community Team is available around the clock to assist with events and other community-development projects. Global Gamers frequently hosts tournaments, mapping contests, and more to help boost community involvement and because those events are just plain fun!
  • Account and channel registration is open to everyone. Once you register an account, you can register channels for your clan or community with one simple command - no staff intervention necessary!
  • Channels can be configured as clan channels, which allow clans to store clan-related information.
    Clan information
    This information is also displayed on the Clan Database website. Once configured as a clan, you are able to send out scrimmage requests to other clans that play the games that your clan does. Join the more than 170 clans that are already using these services (including many Digital Paint: Paintball2 clans) to enhance their gaming!
    Scrimmage requests on Global Gamers
  • Channels can store their favorite quotes easily with the !quote command, eliminating the need for a seperate bot or website.
  • Customized fakehosts (to hide your IP/hostname) are available upon request for individuals or channels (allowing channel users to use the fakehost).


We have a webchat page set up in our booth for you to try out. It takes you to #QuakeExpo (our unofficial Quake Expo channel), where you can chat, ask questions, or just lurk. Try it out!
