Get in Touch

Our forum section is vast, and once was the core for community wide communication. However, if you prefer the direct approach and live chat, the scene camps out on IRC since 1996 on the Quakenet network. There's a green box on the bottom of this page which connects you to Quakenet's webchat

Get set... ready... FRAG!

Finding games; if you installed nQuake you can use ezQuake's build-in serverbrowser. You can also use (and favourite!) or MetaQTV (NOTE: MetaQTV only lists servers connected to QTV).

The more direct approach is using IRC. Join #qwrookie and write .qw 1on1 anyone? (be gentle!) (This sends your message out to every channel that the [ServMe]-bots operate on.) You can also use this on QuakeWorld servers that have ServMe bots spectating.

Feel free to checkout some more of our guides and content on this site.
If you are new here its recommended that you read through [game modes] which will give you a quick introduction of the most common game modes of todays QuakeWorld.

Don't be a stranger now, pop in to our IRC channels and meet our community. We are always happy to welcome some fresh meat into the scene.
