OVERWATCH SENSITIVITY (13 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 10:07 CDT, 5 May 2016 - iMsg
So I'm trying out OW since it's in open beta from 5th to 9th of may.

Everything is fine, I mean i get 215+ FPS average at lowest GFX settings. The game runs just fine. And I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that you can change your crosshair and FOV (I play with the cyan cross and FOV 90).

But one problem remains : the mouse's sensitivity. Default is 15, I tried 3 and 4 but it's still not EXACTLY the same sens than in quakelive.
I have 1800dpi 500hz plug & play (driverless), default windows sens (6/11, in the middle), FOV 90, 1920x1080 24" monitor 16:9 and sensitivity 1 in quakelive (and 3.8 in reflex) which gives me ~23.1, ~23.3cm/360° (QL & RFLX).

Since this website http://www.mouse-sensitivity.com/ needs paid subscription in order for overwatch to work (and I guess DOOM etc aswell), I can't convert the sens from QL to OW.
That's why I'm asking you guys, with my settings, what sensitivity value should I use to get exactly the same sens than in quakelive (sensitivity 1 : ~23.1cm/360°).

Thanks!

I have an aluminum mousepad and this shit pisses me off. I clean it every 10 minutes but it still gathers dust while I'm playing, and the glide becomes terrible and I can feel the dust scraping underneath my mouse. Anyone else have this problem and what do you do?

I've used cloth pads before but they just wear out way too quickly and don't have the same glide. Especially for LG good glide is needed.

HoQ TDM Spring 2016 - Round 6 (42 comments)
Posted by xou @ 13:06 CDT, 29 April 2016 - iMsg
This Sunday, 1st of May, will see the sixth round of the ql HoQ TDM Spring Season 2016!

Here is the schedule for this new round.


Division 1 should be over by now, but we have 6 matches in the catchup round. Anyway, the main encounter for the first rank was played last week. It seems nobody will be able to stop deal with it now, REKT just lost to them in a close close game.

The main game of the second division was also played last week, (B52) faced last pick and managed to defeat them after a long evening! In the same week, the Russians also got rid of WORLDSTAR and are definitely leading the rankings now. Note that excel, Burrito and Onfire still haven't scored any points!

Only one game played for the 5th div3 round, Zombei ate up RAKS. Virtual owners and Dretwe Lamy have rescheduled for Sunday evening.


Update: Sweden Onfire decided to drop out, all the remaining opponents were given defwins.
Update2: Europe the big dicks didn't show up for their last match and decided to drop out before we kick them.

1500 ELO for new players is stupid (104 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 04:20 CDT, 29 April 2016 - iMsg
pls fix nau.

srsly, the new elo rating is fucking every CA shuffle and making shit unplayable (insert CA joke here). 1200 start score was way better. just had to play a game with two "1500" in team, one 16% LG, other 13%, neither knows what bridge is, one of them can't even jump pillars.

OR, make the tracking by registartion only; sign up with your steam id to have stats sent from server, so we know immediately who's a nab and who isn't.

I also remember another interview or speech where he said he still had a "be all end all Quake" to develop, where he would put max emphasis on geeky stuck like device responsiveness and so on.

I think the guy will eventually come back to id some day to fix this fucking mess and make an actual good, new Quake. Until that day, Quake 3 was the last good MP competitive game that reached mainstream status, not accenting this cold hard fact is coping.

Huge fps drop since the Steam update. (4 comments)
Posted by Herezja @ 12:01 CDT, 24 April 2016 - iMsg
I haven't given QL a go since it went Steam exclusive. But I changed my mind yesterday, and as soon as I installed it, and loaded my config, I noticed that my fps are basically cut by half varying from 40 to 80, and it gets even worse when there are bots on the screen.
Now, my PC is old, garbage tier, but it was able to handle around 125 fps before.

Is there some magical command that I'm not aware of, or were the changes that significant? ;_;

HoQ TDM Spring 2016 - Round 5 (20 comments)
Posted by xou @ 11:35 CDT, 22 April 2016 - iMsg
This Sunday, 24th of April, will see the fifth round of the ql HoQ TDM Spring Season 2016!

Here is the schedule for this new round.


Division 1 only had one match from round 4 played this week. Now, Pacmen won't be able to play before May 4th and deal with it and REKT are struggling to arrange a date. But Deliberate Murder have been quite active! First they managed to get a clean win from the big dicks. And then they faced their round 3 opponents, REKT, in a thrilling three-mapper. You should definitely check the VODs if you haven't seen this match (Russia 102, United Kingdom? insan3). Round 5 is the last round for Division 1, but there are still 8 matches to be played.

last pick and (B52) still lead the Division 2 rankings after winning their matches. The other match was wildcarded by Onfire. Division 3's Zombei remains undefeated after a close game against Dretwe Lamy. And Platige Team is on the same path after meeting with Virtual owners.

One word about nerds as they only played 1 match in 4 rounds. All their opponents used wildcard and they don't have a match this week. They're the favorites of Division 3 so Zombei and Platige Team should take advantage of the delayed matches to practice, practice, practice !

The Deactivated on QlStats - Cheaters? (79 comments)
Posted by barrybumcheeks @ 08:53 CDT, 22 April 2016 - iMsg
hi,

Are deactivated players on QLStats known cheaters?

If so would it be possible to get a list of all their Steams ID`s in one text file so as to add them to my server access list? This would save a lot of time trying to weed these players out.

Thanks in advance

BumCheeks

PS any such list would have to be corroborated by public inspection so as to avoid any innocent players being added erroneously or even maliciously.

Posted by viaIImaximus @ 14:48 CDT, 21 April 2016 - iMsg
ESL is continuing its support of ut3 UT4 with Duel ladders which are now open and ready for you to sign up! As seen before with open cups, ESL keeps the North American and European scene active by letting players from both continents duel in two separate ladders. The normal challenge mode has been enabled which lets players challenge each other, besides that a matchmaker is available where you can enter or accept a match at any time. A 1 month ESL Premium subscription award awaits the most active players in each ladder.


If you're just up for some fun and trying out how the new UT4 game feels, join the Europe #UT4.eu and United States of America #UT4pugs channels @ GlobalGamers for some pickup games!

so blue represents VQ3 physics and red represents CPM, meanwhile green is NEUTRAL bots that been set up to help out in various situations and shortcuts. i've made a silly mistake in this video which was too late to fix, so i'll use it to my advantage and put a link in a note to where to look for my future projects at ;-)

will still be playing and producing in the future. this is not just a game. its a hobby and its hard to stop doing something you really like and enjoy. less is more, more or less. quality over quantity yadi yadi yada...

House of Quake CA 4v4 Round 4 recap (2 comments)
Posted by viaIImaximus @ 15:23 CDT, 20 April 2016 - iMsg
The fourth round of HoQ CA 4v4 Spring Season 2016 was played on April 14th featuring four matches across two divisions this time round.

The match results are the following:


Standings:


Even though in this round we haven’t seen any division 1 matches being played, the folks in division 2 and 3 sure did their best to entertain us with their games. It’s those damn Russ.. uhm.. Danes again who were in the spotlight of the evening. The match division 2 has been looking forward to for a while now, the match that would decide the group leader, the match that would end world hunger (!), well not really but our hunger for a good CA game was fed by a nubz versus Team PULSE clash. Ruining this epic hype introduction is very well related to a 0:2 straight win for Team PULSE. That gets them the lead position in the group and gets everyone else’s fangs out ready to suck on their blood and points while at it. Other than that match, the German’s got the ‘boot’ (not Das Boot the movie) but an Italian one. The Italian Death Squad won over, now ashamed, Team CODIAN who lost in two straight maps. Team CODIAN now with no points added to their name don’t look too good. Italian’s managed to get 6 points so far and are tied with nubz.

A nice pairing was displayed in division 3, where we had two A and B teams from Frag Emm Clan and Because life is izi… The two, actually four, managed to play three mapper matches. One match went to the [IZI] B while facing F.E.C with a 2:1 win! Since the universe acknowledges only one constant and that is balance, in that retrospect F*E*C was bound to win, and win they did, while [IZI] A being the victims of poor planet alignment and sheer bad luck, lost. ‘Fraggers’ won this matchup with a 2:1 result. LG/ still leads the group with a nice purse of points, 12 being the number, while close second are the 2StH, while the third place is having a threesome. Three teams sharing the same amount of points, that being 6, and it features two [IZI] teams and one F*E*C team in a clench.

Be sure to check out some more upcoming matches this week!

Note: The servers used for official games MUST have HoQ gametype factories (hoq_ca) to enforce the proper CA settings. Please check the rules if you are not sure about something or contact a HoQ CA admin.

Duelling & The Art of War (15 comments)
Posted by mapamapa @ 10:16 CDT, 20 April 2016 - iMsg
So I just read The Art of War and it's kind of funny to see how well much of it applies to playing Duel in Quake Live.

Here are some of the most applicable lines I found, there's much more in the whole thing which can be read here: http://classics.mit.edu/Tzu/artwar.html

"All warfare is based on deception.
If he is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him.
If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.
Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
Now the general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to defeat: how much more no calculation at all! It is by attention to this point that I can foresee who is likely to win or lose.
If equally matched, we can offer battle; if slightly inferior in numbers, we can avoid the enemy; if quite unequal in every way, we can flee from him.
Sun Tzu said: The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.
To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.
To see victory only when it is within the ken of the common herd is not the acme of excellence.
What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.
He wins his battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated.
Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
In all fighting, the direct method may be used for joining battle, but indirect methods will be needed in order to secure victory.
Indirect tactics, efficiently applied, are inexhaustible as Heaven and Earth, unending as the flow of rivers and streams; like the sun and moon, they end but to begin anew; like the four seasons, they pass away to return once more.
There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard.
In battle, there are not more than two methods of attack--the direct and the indirect; yet these two in combination give rise to an endless series of maneuvers.
By holding out baits, he keeps him on the march; then with a body of picked men he lies in wait for him.
Sun Tzu said: Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.
Therefore the clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him.
By holding out advantages to him, he can cause the enemy to approach of his own accord; or, by inflicting damage, he can make it impossible for the enemy to draw near.
You can be sure of succeeding in your attacks if you only attack places which are undefended. You can ensure the safety of your defense if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked.
If we wish to fight, the enemy can be forced to an engagement even though he be sheltered behind a high rampart and a deep ditch. All we need do is attack some other place that he will be obliged to relieve.
If we do not wish to fight, we can prevent the enemy from engaging us even though the lines of our encampment be merely traced out on the ground. All we need do is to throw something odd and unaccountable in his way.
Rouse him, and learn the principle of his activity or inactivity. Force him to reveal himself, so as to find out his vulnerable spots.
Carefully compare the opposing army with your own, so that you may know where strength is superabundant and where it is deficient.
How victory may be produced for them out of the enemy's own tactics--that is what the multitude cannot comprehend.
All men can see the tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.
Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances.
Ponder and deliberate before you make a move.
There are five dangerous faults which may affect a general: (1) Recklessness, which leads to destruction; (2) cowardice, which leads to capture; (3) a hasty temper, which can be provoked by insults; (4) a delicacy of honor which is sensitive to shame; (5) over-solicitude for his men, which exposes him to worry and trouble.
If our troops are no more in number than the enemy, that is amply sufficient; it only means that no direct attack can be made. What we can do is simply to concentrate all our available strength, keep a close watch on the enemy, and obtain reinforcements.
The natural formation of the country is the soldier's best ally; but a power of estimating the adversary, of controlling the forces of victory, and of shrewdly calculating difficulties, dangers and distances, constitutes the test of a great general.
Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory: (1) He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight. (2) He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces. (3) He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks. (4) He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared. (5) He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.
Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
He who knows these things, and in fighting puts his knowledge into practice, will win his battles. He who knows them not, nor practices them, will surely be defeated."

Hello fans.
Busy with studies so I'm not quite up to date. I heard Doom kinda sucked and Overwatch sucks as well(?)

Most importantly: I also heard that only hope for Quake is Quake 5, which there are rumors about? Is this true? Is it all true????



Finally, Id Software/Bethesda/whoever making q5 in case your are reading it should be called "quake prime", sincerely mr makie.

Why don't you play #tdmpickup? (102 comments)
Posted by quake is potat @ 09:37 CDT, 18 April 2016 - iMsg
Hello beautiful people, and landwhales too.

tl;dr: Do you play QL frequently, but not #tdmpickup? Then please tell us why not, whatever the reason may be.

Not only has #tdmpickup always had the potential for having a larger number of active players, but it has come to my attention that #tdmpickup activity is dwindling considerably in recent times. This thread has two purposes:

1. To preemptively answer some questions players may have regarding #tdmpickup and promote it a bit:






2. To find out the main reasons that are holding active QL players back from playing TDM pickups.

To be honest every reason will be of interest because it's reached a point where every single player counts, so please go ahead and tell us why you don't play pickups, or why you think other people don't.

Obscene language is welcome if it helps you express yourself.

Posted by xou @ 06:53 CDT, 16 April 2016 - iMsg
This Sunday, 17th of April, will see the fourth round of the ql HoQ TDM Spring Season 2016!

Here is the schedule for this new round.


With two wildcards, one forfeit loss and a failed reschedule, the round 3 could seem pretty quiet. But the div1 game between Team Hungary and the big dicks brought a good three-mapper. Also, the russian clash in div3, RAKS and infinity, ended up with a deciding map. In div2, WORLDSTAR versus Hateful Eight was also a close one.

Plans of a Passionate Psychotic (44 comments)
Posted by flair @ 02:24 CDT, 16 April 2016 - iMsg
This post is in response to many of the questions I have been getting since deciding to step away from the North American Duel Cup. If you have no clue what I'm talking about you can catch up on the latest DraNA (lol thanks twitch chat) here and here

I am not abandoning everything, but I have a bunch of bitter sweet emotions and feelings towards the organization and events currently. Combine the previously mentioned feeling about Quake with high stress life situations and you've got a wonderful recipe for disaster. I have no desire or intention to share the details of these "life situations" but I will say that I don't want to ruin the joy that quake brings me by self destructing and taking the NA Duel Cup down with me. So let's skip to the the more important (quake related) details. This community of ours is a bunch of noobs, drama queens, dreamers, hipsters, snobs, friends, try-hards, etc. etc. etc. This is the current state of the Quake community and this community still exists because of how passionate the members of this community are about their Quake.

"So Quake players are passionate. What the **** is your point failr?"

This passion is why I am also having a difficult time letting go. Part of me wants to say "screw it" and stream this upcoming Sunday like normal. Fortunately there is a far louder and more rational voice in my head telling me to "back off" and chill out. I think a good stream is about providing good entertainment. For me it doesn't matter if that entertainment comes from eye opening expert casting or if that entertainment comes from dank memes and fresh satire. The level of entertainment that I have been providing is not up to my personal standards, however I'm not concerned about damaging my ego in this situation. I have a terrible feeling that if I continue trying to force myself to manage all of this alone that I'll end up destroying myself mentally and taking the North American Duel Cup with me. The longer I try to accomplish my goals alone the heavier the bar gets and the farther away I fall from it. This was definitely a cry for help that was unfortunately delivered poorly and in combination with some serious life stress. Hopefully this helps those who are confused at this sudden announcement to understand why I have decided to do this. I actually think that this will help to strengthen and grow the NADC as a static organization within this bitter sweet community of ours.

I have no exact date or time frames, but I do hope to come back again someday soon

Thank You For Quakeing

1000hz driver - is this legit? (6 comments)
Posted by vanqu1sh @ 20:47 CDT, 15 April 2016 - iMsg
Just stumbled upon this post in which the author claims to have created a driver whereby you can overclock your mice polling rate without needing to be in test mode. Is this legit - has anybody on ESR tried it?

Currently away from a computer and my old MX518 for a few days so haven't got the chance to try it myself. In theory, seems like an awesome tool tho.

Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 16:29 CDT, 15 April 2016 - iMsg
I saw here a theread in which some people abused the map. Respawn, design, key

My expert opinion:

The quake spawns must be selectable after death
Elder has an excellent scheme,
The key - a very cool innovation!
2 Yellow 1 Red 1 mega - Best choice


Delirium
-cool scheme!!!!!!!!!!!!
-cool armors
-best design!

LostWorld
-No RailGun=No cheat =) Thats why



Mappool now:
Battleforged, Blood Run, Cure, Elder, Furious Heights, Hektik, Sin
ister

Maps that I recommend
Battleforged, Blood Run, Cure, Elder, Elder, Elder, Furious Heights, Delirium, Delirium, Delirium, Delirium, Sinister, LostWorld,, LostWorld,, LostWorld,, LostWorld,

Hektik, aero - shit promode maps, burn in hell forever

DUEL: SELECTABLE SPAWNS (45 comments)
Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 13:46 CDT, 15 April 2016 - iMsg
Of course "i need" your opinion ;)

When player dies, he can click images which show spawn points

Just for duel.I know we need to make a lot of screenshots. But i think time to solve spawn points came many years ago.

Quake Live - North American Duel Cup #17 (30 comments)
Posted by phy1um @ 09:54 CDT, 14 April 2016 - iMsg
Scheduled: 16:30 CDT, 17 April 2016 to 20:30 CDT, 17 April 2016
Schedule: Passed

After the rescheduling and eventual cancellation of duel cup #16, I'm pleased to announce that the rest of the season will be going ahead as planned. There will be one final cup on the scheduled date and then the playoffs the following week. In the playoffs the players who have gathered the most points during the season will face off for larger cash prizes.

Due to the cancellation of NADC #16 nobody will be awarded points for that cup, so Rapha is free to continue his clean sweep.

As to why I'm making this thread, unfortunately Flair has decided to step down from running this competition for now. I've been in contact with him and everything is OK, however it isn't the best time for him to be doing these. If anyone wants to help run the cup on the day, especially North Americans, that would be fantastic.
