Global Mac Games Relaunch
2:41 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Recently Mac gaming league site Global Mac Games has re-launched their site for organizing Mac game tournaments, finding online opponents and joining or creating clans. While the site is still under construction, it will eventually feature a Java-based chat room, a live list of games and scoreboards for supported games.


Here is an excerpt from the press release:

One of the
Macintosh's first and oldest Mac-only online gaming leagues, Global Mac
Games, is reopening its site to the Macintosh community,
www.globalmacgames.com.


The Free Macintosh-Only Internet Gaming League is a collaborative project
between Global Mac Games, Autolycus Corporation & Macs N PCs. Through this
new partnership, Global Mac Games (GMG) plans on bringing the best
competitive online gaming experience available on the Internet to the
Macintosh gamer. Global Mac Games does not provide gaming servers to play
on but rather a common place for gamers to meet up and converse, compete
against each other, and report your games results to.


With Global Mac Games, Macintosh gamers can sign up for a free account which
will then give them access to the league. Please keep in mind though that
ONLY Macintosh gamers are able to access GMG, all other gamers will
immediately be given a nice, short message and then be redirected to the
Apple Store. Once logged into the site, the gamer will be able to talk in a
Java chatroom, read and post to an online messageboard (Soapbox), view a
list of current games on the Game Tracker, search the member directory, view
the individual game standings (Ladders), join or create online teams
(Clans), compete against other members in any of the supported games and
read up on site and gaming news from around the web.

Visit the site for more information. While it is still under construction, gaming leagues are already forming.
