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...

Recent Network Hiccups - Posted by ButtaKnife on April 15, 2015

If you've been on GG in the last couple of days, you have almost certainly noticed some rather large netsplits. Unfortunately, the host that we use for our central "hub" server has been dealing with some significant attacks recently. The attacks are not targeted at us, but we have been collateral damage, especially in the last 48 hours.

Network stability is something we take very seriously, and while an occasional netsplit could be outside of our control just due to routine routing changes on the Internet, that doesn't mean we're going to sit around and do nothing while everyone gets to deal with netsplit spam. We have been in contact with our hub's host and we're continuing to work on improving the reliability of the connection, which has clearly degraded in recent weeks. We are also in the process of testing out a new hub at a different host to see if it would be more stable. The goal is to minimize the connectivity problems between our hub and the servers around the world that we all connect to using

Thank you all for your patience during these rough patches. If you've been frustrated by the netsplit spam like we've been, please accept our sincere apologies for the disruptions. Feel free to join #GlobalGamers to commiserate with us. We'll keep everyone posted as we work on these changes and any other network stabilization efforts.


Account Expiration Glitch - Posted by ButtaKnife on April 8, 2015

If you received emails recently about your account expiring, first let me start by sincerely apologizing for the error. We decided to double the amount of time that accounts were able to be inactive from 3 months to 6 months (90 days to 180 days), however I typoed the config setting to "18d". Once the expiration code ran, it took out quite a number of perfectly-valid accounts. We are in the process of loading data for those accounts from backups, but if you have any issues or questions please let us know right away.

Update 2015-04-08 10:08PM Pacific (UTC-7): The missing accounts and channel access have been restored. I'm very sorry for the hassle and confusion!
