Brendan and myself jay are from Waterford , paddy is a roscrea man but he lives in Waterford. so please check us out we are by no means great at any game casual gaming you know yourself, but we stream a hole range of games i suppose we do a good bit on cod black ops 4 mostly the black out mode. do a bit of VR as well and brendan is the man for the the likes of until dawn and detroit become human. so if you have nothing else to do look us up on the tube and twitch and enjoy hope to see you over there
Hi. I'm Nate.
I found this site by googling gaming communities. (So yeah, that was easy.)
I'm from Dublin.
I love games to death. I don't take sides in the console wars (Although I show excitement towards Nintendo often.) and my favorite game is Undertale.
I love writing about games and I hope to make a web series about myself and my friend talking about video games, hurting each other and sending bombs to EA, Konami and Phoenix Games.
So yeah. Glad to be here.
Yo,
My names Joe, from Monaghan and found this looking for a gaming forum for Irish people. Happy to have found this place! Have a love of rpg’s mainly and 90% of what Nintendo has to offer. What I’m currently really excited for though is Borderlands3 coming in a little over a week and would love to meet some other people who have a love for the franchise to play through with when the time comes.
Cheers!

Name is Jack. Found the site by searching on Google for Irish gaming clans.
I'm a PS4 player, same name as username (feel free to add). Been gaming since a kid on and off, recently back into it.
I love playing shooters with a team and having the craic when playing multiplayers going for the objective and win while having a laugh.
Currently enjoying Spider-Man, Hitman, Hitman 2 and Final Fantasy X on the PS4 single players.
Excited for Modern Warfare next month as CODs have been terrible the last few years, but this one looks back to roots.

Found the site by the search 'Irish gamer forum' I think . Just came on here to try to find info for a foreign neighbour who'd asked me if there was a problem with rural Irish b/band for gamers We know the B/B issues but I wondered if gamers needed something special to allow them to compete with international players or is there a 'Gamer Cafe' with super hi-speed that gamers need ?

Well rural internet is a matter of where and how rural, you can't just justify a entire countries broadband structure without specifics and locale.

Ireland has a decent not without it's flaws broadband structure which can be split into many categories from ADSL 2 to to NGB, Satellite and 5G and Fiber and now electricity powered internet from ESB and Vodafone called Siro.

So TLDR; Depends on where in Ireland they are to what caliber of service they will get.

Also, when playing with international players, there will always be a small latency and connect drawbacks, depending on where the game server is located. AKA, If the server is in america and they are and you're in Ireland, their Ping will be much lower and connection to the server much better regardless of how fast your internet is, why competitions are played locally on LANS.

So, as the game is based in Asia and the players are in UK and IRL there will always be lag issues? As I said the download can be between 6-80 mbps , the ping and jitter they're saying seems to affect it also? Bottom line I'm being told is it's affecting the 'team' now they've moved countries but you say that the best place is to find tournaments with a LAN network here or UK?

Update.... I'm being told that players in UK, US are seemingly able to compete with Asian based players without problems , so it just seems to be a problem here?
