Simple! GGs are a gathering of people that play a certain game right here at IGC. GGs utilize our forums, our teamspeak, and other resources to organize themselves. These groups are open to the public (that means anyone can join!) and range in skill level from casual to hardcore. Within each GG, independant teams may form which may compete for prize at tournaments, cons, and stuff like that.
Easily. Each GG is run by a member of our community. All you have to do is contact that person and find out what they need from you. Each GG recruits differently, but what they have in common is that they like to get to know you and see if you're a good fit for the community. The best thing you can do to network with us here is hop on our TS and start chatting us up.
Everyone who becomes a member of IGC gets full access to everything. There are no second-class citizens here!
Great question! All of our GGs were started by existing members of IGC who wanted to give something back to the community and share the game they enjoy with everyone else. You don't even have to be a member to start a GG for IGC, but you will need to meet with the Community Managers to discuss setting up your group with us. Figure out what you need (webspace, a forum, a calendar, etc.) and let us know you're interested in starting up a group for a certain game. We rarely deny anyone the opportunity to be a leader here, so long as they have some experience and know what they're doing. PM your proposal to Grey Jorildyn and he'll take a look at it right away.
There sure is! Bring your friends on down and let's start something fresh here!
