For those wanting to get on IRC, which is HIGHLY recommended if you want to scrim or match, I have collected some information here that wil help get you started.
First, you will need an irc client. The most used irc client out there ir Mirc. Mirc can be found at www.mirc.com
Once you have that downloaded, it will need to be installed
As Mirc's install guide has lots of pretty pictures, I'm just going to post a link to the setup guide:http://www.mirc.com/install.html
Remember: When they talk about irc servers, you are going to want to use irc.globalgamers.net
Now once you have got Mirc all set up, read the following to start using irc on the globalgamers network.

Once you've managed to connect to our network, the next thing you should do is register a NickServ account. What does NickServ do you ask? Well, it holds all of your channel access information, registered nicks, and fakehost information. It's an essential part of your use of the Global Gamers IRC network.
Now onto the good stuff...
To register a NickServ account type:
/ns register AccountName Password EmailAddress
Make sure you use a real e-mail address, since it will be required to validate your account.
To auth to your NickServ account any time you connect to GG after registering, type:
/ns auth AccountName Password
To hide your IP/hostmask from other users type:
/mode your-nick +x
You can apply for a free custom fakehost on our fakehost page.
To change your account password type:
/ns pass oldpassword newpassword
(Note: /ns in the above commands is just a shortcut for /msg NickServ@services.globalgamers.net
- Obviously /ns is easier to type so we recommend using that.)
To register a channel type:
/cs register #channel
If other users are occupying the channel you must have op status to complete registration.
To list all of the channels on global gamers type:
ChanServ commands can be used in a few various ways. !command in any registered channel, /cs command , or /msg ChanServ command .
