    The Official #UnrealTournament IRC Channel


    Since Epic Games officially announced their Unreal Tournament game to the public, they opened an official Unreal Tournament IRC channel.



    **************************************************

    What's the purpose of this channel?

    The purpose of this channel is to allow the fellow Unreal Tournament community to converse with each other and with the devs outside the forums since all conversations done in IRC are in real-time. Think of this channel as an extension of the forums (not a replacement of them) where you can ask questions about Unreal Tournament, share game related information or just hang out with other like minded gamers.

    **************************************************

    What is mIRC?

    It is simply a client that allows users to connect to an IRC network which consists of channels related to various topics and unites people from around the world.

    **************************************************

    How do I connect to the Unreal Tournament channel?


    There are various ways to connect to the channel:


    1) From within the UT game launcher, you can click on, "UT Live Chat", as seen below:




    2) If you're familiar with mIRC, use the following information below to connect:

    Server/Network:
    irc.globalgamers.net
    Port: 6667
    Channel: #UnrealTournament and #UTContributors


    Note: Only Epic devs & Contributors (with a forum badge) can speak in #UTContributors



    3) If you are currently using an mirc client, click on the following link:


    4) If you aren't familiar with mIRC, you can still chat with us using this online client:


    Can I ask a question there?


    Certainly you can ask questions in the channel but please consider staying in the channel more than 10 minutes for users to address your questions and/or issues.

    Leaving the channel after a minute of asking a question is not recommended because your question or issue will not be answered or resolved.

        To be fair, both channels are dead the vast majority of the time

                Is there a subchannel for competitive (esports) play yet? I remember there being some big iCTF 2v2 IRC's back when I played UT2k4.

                  Yes yes, come on in and partake in the discussions that are happening.

                  Is there a subchannel for competitive (esports) play yet? I remember there being some big iCTF 2v2 IRC's back when I played UT2k4.
                  There is no competitive (aka esports) scene at the moment but there has been 1v1s, 2v2s etc... in the main channel. There are pickups being done in #utpugs slowly but the more the community knows about it, the more activity it will have.
