Welcome to old man gamers, a community built on old skool gamers from the depths of IRC. For those of you who don’t know what IRC is, then you missed out on probably the best gaming era there ever was! Over a quarter of a million players ever single day hit the IRC channels over multiple Quakenet IRC servers. Most in search of “noobs”, the “31337” and the Q bot which sat in your channel with the S bot to follow if you’re channel was mega awesome! For the rest of the network Lbot was the norm and these were the daily runs on Quakenet.
These days Quakenet runs at around 10% of what it did back then in the late 90’s early 2000’s but let us not forget that these are the golden years of gaming, the awesome ones, where mice and keywords ruled, and nobody cared about game pads!
