mIRC: What is it?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys! In a bit of a rush so I will get straight to the point. Recently I've been noticing many TF2 PUG streamers on twitch.tv use this program to pick players and stuff: http://www.mirc.com/index.html

I've tried to find out more about this program but I still don't understand. Can someone please tell me more about this program and how it can be used in Asiafortress PUGs (If it's possible and does something useful)?

Thanks a lot guys.

Its an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client. It lets you connect to IRC servers (like mumble servers) and chat with each other (text chat).

 

Sometimes there are bots along side real users that work on commands just like the commands we use in our sourcemod and pug servers like !votemap !ban etc.

I believe pick up game (PUG) originated due to picking of players from the IRC (or Mumble). 

 

Found this video which is good to understand

We already have the current PUG system which I think is much better.

Think text chatrooms and channels. Ancient program too :D

 

You may like it, I remember it has all those colour and formatting options and whatnot.

Thanks for the replies guys! I would probably try the program with some other stuff, now that I have a better understanding of it. But from what I can infer, it's kind of redundant now.

I TELL U HOW : 

LAST TIME GAMERSUNITED PROVIDED BOOKABLE SERVERS FOR AF SCRIMS/MATCHES

ALL U HAZ TO DO IS GO ONTO THEIR mIRC CHANNEL AND REQUEST : I WOULD LIKE A BOOKABLE ASIA SERVER 
BOT SEES YOUR REQUEST, BOT GIVE U SERVER IMMEDIATELY WITH IPDETAILS AND TEMP RCON PASSWORD, SERVER WILL THEN BE BOOKED FOR 2 HOURS.
