My Thoughts on using Epal for Finding New Gaming Friends
Epal.gg is a website that allows you to hire gamers for various online games.
From League of Legends to Call of Duty, this site covers almost all the popular games you can think of.
But why is it so popular?
Why does it stand out as the best site to hire experienced players?

I like the new Epal.gg interface on both the website and the mobile app. The interface allows you to take a glance at all the available epals. When I visited the website, I easily found an epal based on their review rating and the game I wanted to play. It shows their skills and experience in each game. You can quickly visit each epals bio, read reviews, see the games they play and, often, listen to a recording of the introducing themselves.
Another reason why I found the user interface good is it has all its games listed on the left-hand side. If you want to check the availability of players for a specific game, then go to your top-left corner to open the games section. It will consist of “Hot” and “Games.” Hot games mean the ones that are currently in high demand. You will find various multiplayer games like Overwatch, League of Legends, Phasmophobia, Minecraft, and many more under that section. Alternatively, you can check out the “Games” section. It consists of games categorized alphabetically.
The site also offers you four filters that allow you to choose a player according to age, skill level, price, and gender.
There is a “Match” feature available which I don’t really use or like. This makes the site feel too much like Tinder and is a cheap gimmick, in my opinion. You simply swipe left or right based upon the epal photo which feels like it’s promoting the wrong message.
Android App – their Android app has improved a lot over the past 6 months and the UI is pretty good. It’s fairly straight forward to find epals for specific games and the payment system is easy to use with Paypal and Google Pay.
iPhone App – I can’t comment on this as I haven’t used it yet. I will update this part shortly.
Bad Reputation & Simps…
I first heard about epal last year and was put off by the idea due to a lot of negativity on Youtube about these types of sites. However, in January 2021 – during the height of lockdown in the UK – I needed some social interactions (since, legally, I couldn’t visit other people, etc) so I decided to “bite the bullet” and give epal a go.
I ended up playing with about 5 different epals over the course of 2-3 months and had very good experiences. There were a couple where we didn’t really connect very well but they weren’t bad at all. The rest I really enjoyed spending time gaming and chatting with. It actually really helped me through the worst parts of lockdown.
Through my chats with various epals I did discover that the one problem they have on there are a few people who expect them to be “webcam girls” and to offer NSFW content. That isn’t what the site is for regardless of what some Youtubers try to claim.
They are simply people wanting to game and make an income because, most, have lost jobs or haven’t been able to find work during the pandemic.
If the epals are treated with respect then I really believe you will have a good experience on there.
Does using epal make you a Simp? No, unless you’re there stalking epals for NSFW services – go to other sites for that stuff.
This is another area that impressed me. My idea was to play with someone who has some experience with Rocket League, Counter Strike or . To my surprise, I found there are tons of other games also. I personally like Minecraft, League of Legends, Call of Duty, Fortnite and Grand Theft Auto V.
But I wasn’t expecting to find players from all these games under one roof.
My Final Verdict
I think Epal.gg is an good site for gamers just looking for someone to spend some time with to chill out.
Yes, a few people argue “why would you pay to spend time with someone when you have friends to play with for free!” – not everyone has gaming friends or we don’t have friends who play specific games. Many of us just play online with randoms we meet through in-game Match Making systems which, in my experience, is often toxic and demoralising.
My experience with epal, so far, has been good. I recommend giving it a chance with the free order shown at the start of this review.
