Quake Live Chat on IRC

Directly go to general Quake Live channels, Quake Live nation channels or Quake Live clan channels.

quake-live-ircGamers have often gathered on IRC to chat with other gamers. This is definitely no different for Quake Live. The game’s still in the beta, yet already several public Quake Live community channels have emerged. On this page we want to help you join these IRC communites by linking to some useful IRC guides and listing some relevant IRC chat channels in the Quake Live community.

What exactly is IRC?

A great definition of IRC can be found on the mIRC FAQ page. To summarize, IRC is a way of chatting and networking with other people that’s been nearly as old as the internet. You connect to a certain server, such as Quakenet, and then join upto 20 channels, such as the #qlpickup.eu channel.

How do I join the IRC chat network?

To join IRC you must use an IRC client. This can be either an online based IRC client or a software based IRC client. Personally I would highly recommend a software version. Though if you just want to take IRC for a testride first, try mibbit irc.

However, if you want full functioning stand alone software, I highly suggest getting a downloadable IRC client. The most popular is undoubtedly mIRC. To install mIRC read the mIRC installation guide on their website.

Quake Live Community Channels

Once you’ve installed IRC you’re ready and set to go. The whole quake live community is gathered on the Quakenet servers, so be sure to select this as your server when you start. Once you are connected to irc.quakenet.org, type the following in your chatbox to join a certain irc channel, for example, /join #qlpickup.eu to join Holysh1t’s personal Quake Live Community channel.

What follows is a list of quake live channels. If you have a channel you think is relevant for this page and which has not been listed yet, leave a comment below with the details.
