QuakeWorld server software update (6 comments)
Posted by Åke Vader @ 00:48 CDT, 10 October 2018 - iMsg
The popular QuakeWorld server software package nQuakesv has had its bundled versions of QuakeWorld server software updated. The included server software is now MVDSV v0.32 as well as server mod KTX v1.38.

This update is a delayed one as new MVDSV and KTX versions were released at end of June earlier this year and as it kind of escaped the news i thought it's definitely worth a mention. The changelogs bring us a bunch of interesting changes such as:
  • Bots support in KTX, i.e. can now have bots on standard online servers (they were pretty much only localhost before)
  • Web server integration for reporting match results (some servers do this to Badplace.eu under servers tab)
  • Smoother teleports on high ping (making the classic Aerowalk teleporter jump work like on localhost)
  • Bigger maps support (BSP2/BSP29a format)
  • Support for racing at the same time in Race mode
  • Etc...

Hey everyone! We had a lot of interest from players in our Australia AU/NZ community to throw up something longer than our usual one day competitions. As such we've decided to do a 16 player Duel league featuring a lot of international competitors such as Corvidae's Dandaking and Steej, Cooked Esports ZenAku and Dirtbox. We've also had new interest from Australian team Avant Garde's new roster Lure and Crunchy. It's always been hard with our geographical distance to attend every international event but we hope that true Quake fans can appreciate what we are doing and support us in our contest.

I've put together photo cards for everyone to meet all the players over on our instagram and I've also spamming twitter a lot more lately too. Even contributing on Socials goes a long way for us <3

Streaming will happen on our Twitch with VOD's going up on our youtube.

Schedule
Week 1 - 04:00 CDT, 7 October 2018 (Yes i'm aware PGL is on we may try and start earlier but you can always catch the VOD ;))
Week 2 - 04:00 CDT, 14 October 2018
Week 3 - 04:00 CDT, 21 October 2018
Week Off for Pax - 04:00 CDT, 28 October 2018

QuakeWorld kickstarting the new season (9 comments)
Posted by Åke Vader @ 10:31 CDT, 28 September 2018 - iMsg
As fall of 2018 is approaching it is time to tuck away the sunglasses, rinse off the sun screen and crawl back into the man caves. The QuakeWorld scene is usually quiet during the summer, however things are starting to pick up again with a few different initiatives coming up in the near future.

For the team deathmatch lovers there will be a 4on4 allstars match played on the weekend around 20th October with familiar names such as Finland Milton, Sweden Bps, Sweden Xantom and Norway Rikoll putting on a show for spectators to enjoy. There will be streaming arrangements and lots of games played.

For the players more into dueling the 2018 QuakeWorld Duel Showdown might be a better cup of tea. This is a online 1on1 tournament played over four consecutive Sundays from 4th to 25th November. The tournament comes with two divisions based on player's skill levels with separate community funded prize pools for each of them. The map pool consists of dm2, dm4, dm6, aerowalk, ztndm3, bravado and skull.

Another 1on1 opportunity coming up is the 10th edition of the classic Thunderdome 1on1 tournament with its familiar division based setup. The map pool consists of Aerowalk, Bravado, DM4, Monsoon, ZTNDM3, DM2 and DM6.

Quakecon 2018 Interviews by 4sg.com.au (14 comments)
Posted by mickzerofive @ 03:43 CDT, 7 August 2018 - iMsg
Interview with Myztro's Hungary RAISY
How do you feel about the changes to the duel Tournament specifically giving only $25,000 to 1st
I prefer the way they handled last year's QuakeCon prizes. You can become 2nd and still win nothing. Very unsatisfying.

Interview with Quaker Orb's United States of America Effortless
Since the structure changed for the 2018 year of Quake events whereby teams were no longer flown over by the developers. It made it hard for a lot of teams to make international trips like they had hoped for. Can you tell me what was the feeling when you found out this would be the case for you to financially fund your team to travel to France and what was it like when the community outpour of love and support for you came to fruition?
We were kind of thrown off by this news, considering this was announced one month before Dreamhack Tours. yenOm and I had worked very hard leading up to the event, even before any tournaments were announced, and we felt a little blindsided from what we had come to expect for Quake tournaments. We were debating even attempting to go to DH Tours as we didn't think we could fund an international trip with one months notice.

Interview with Corvidae's Australia Steej
Now that you have played with Australia Dandaking for 6 months as a 2v2 team, what do you feel is your biggest strength as a duo?
We are always looking for angles to output damage no matter the situation; we have high pressure because of this. Despite improving our playstyle to reduce the damage we receive, it has not changed that much and feels like a nice balance.

Naturally, local servers with low-ping play are common too, but is there any sort of adjustment you need to make when shifting gear from remote to local play? Especially as you head to various tournaments and practise with various people?
Every time you travel to a different part of the world and play in queue against the people living there you can instantly notice the difference in regional playstyles. Being adaptable is the biggest skill any professional gamer can have, because you need to be able to adapt on the fly against opponents. At an international tournament you will be matched up against players from all different countries and regions who each have a different strategy and style which you’ll need to figure out to succeed. This is why you often find that certain players will be more effective against certain other styles of players, purely based off the stylistic match-up. So, I try to make my own style a mix of everything and have trained myself for many situations to be ready when I come up against something new. At least that's the hope!
