Okay since i see there are many ways like IRC and those other that are messy why not XFIRE ???
Here's what i have been thinking :
I will create a "CLAN" called Glest which it's going to be about glest(it will also track the gameplay hours in total of us all) and all of you join it.When you run XFIRE and login , in your friend list you will see a group CALLED "GLEST" in this group you see all glest players who joined so far , online/offline)
So it's going to be piece of cake to arrange games.If 4 guys are online we can do a room chat , share the ip and all that)
All we need is people joining this group .....(Until i get a few positive answer i will not create it yet )
if you don't want to use xfire then don't , use it only when you want to play.Like , log in see if anyone plays and then play .But this would be like irc then because everyone will be logging in then quitting and you never find someone to play.Just stay online ^_^ it doesn't eat your cpu.
One more thing to add : If we create this group and many join , and actually play daily together , it will also spread the game and many many new will come and try it.
If many of you agree i will create the group and i will invite you (Tell your xfire id's )This is the best / simplest way and it's up to you.
