What's IRC? -IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. It's a huge online network where people can chat and share files. -The IRC channel has the intention of finding and playing people in Super smash bros. Brawl when it comes out for the wii. It also serves as a place to : -chat about brawl -upcoming tournments for brawl -a place to exchange wii codes -share files -or chat just about anything. We hope to have online tournaments for Brawl and smash64. There will be a tournament and ranking script which will set up matches and record ranks. Overall, this is a place where skilled players quickly find matches with players of the same level or players new to the game can ask questions and also play people of their level.
