IRC is Internet Relay Chat. It is the method used by
Nexuiz Xonotic players to chat with each other. To use IRC, you have to install an IRC client program and connect to
an IRC network called QuakeNet. After you connect to QuakeNet, then you may join various Nexuiz Xonotic-related
channels. Optionally, there is a web-based interface for connecting to Nexuiz Xonotic IRC channels quickly without installing any software.
Use the web chat interfaces above. Those take you to the HOCTF and/or HODM channels. You can join the normal Xonotic channel too by typing /join #xonotic
1. Download and install an IRC client (software). A common recommendation is X-Chat. It is free and available for Mac, Windows and Linux OSes.
