North American SCRIMS
This is a sad sad time for us good people here in North America,

Unless someone can tell me where i can find North American css or csgo ringers/scrims. irc.Gamesurge.net use to be very active, but clearly people rather pay monthly fee's for ESEA.

It boggles my mind that there is no community within NA looking for FREE scrims.

I join quakenet and see thousands of active people...How can Europeans be so smart and we just support a capitalist society so scrim are 'easy' to find. FUCK THIS I WANT MY IRC BACK.

Well the Quakenet servers are pretty much filled with us Europeans. Only thing that I can really think of is ESEA which has a primarily NA player base afai can see, though it isn't free.

Actually you could find games on quakenet europe and play it.
I've been trying out the NA pugs, i get 90 ping, and it's playable.

Haha, it's playable, but why play with 90 ping when you can play in servers in the us and against people in the us. Btw it's Krng ;)

indeed :) but since he's telling us there are no channels in irc NA. I'm just telling him he could tryout in Eu.

Not all of us are daily active players anymore but still enjoy scrimming every once and awhile, now because of ESEA this is no longer possible without having to pay a month fee ? What type of bullshit is that ? I only scrim a few times a month I'm not going to pay a monthly fee for that.


God dammit I'm just going to have to join your good smart people across seas, not the mindless drones that occupy North America.

It's not like you're gonna get poor if you pay 6 bucks every month..

This maybe true. But I pay monthly subs for other RPG games I play. Sometimes I just wanna take a break sit back and enjoy a few good scrims.
But because of some fucking company that wants to make money off lazy incompetent people who don't know what or how to use IRC I can not do this anymore.

It wouldn't bother me as much if there was even a slightly small NA IRC scrim community, but from the looks of it we've all fallen under the iron fist that is capitalism.

I would rather have a larger esea scene in europe which provides decent quality servers , anti cheat client , leagues and other nice stuff than IRC.
Financially its the same cause if you want to have a decent team = you need a server that costs as much as ESEA for every member.
Esea also allows you to play alone , which is pretty good for forever aloners.
