Been following this site for longer than I care to think about. Just wanted to whine a little bit. It has really fallen in terms of content. Not the writers, I guess there isn't much to talk about anymore. The whole FPS scene just seems so flat. :(

Cry with me, brothers!

Server owners, please update QLDS (1 comment)

It's already old news, but the most recent server version is from Jan 15th and more than half of the servers out there still use the old version from Dec 17th.

It includes a couple bug fixes, including one for the ghost players.

House of Quake TDM Spring Season 2016 (71 comments)
Posted by xou @ 11:07 CST, 5 February 2016 - iMsg
Two months after the end of the HoQ Fall Season 2015, it's now time to announce the new season!

The sign-ups for the TDM HoQ Spring 2016 Season will be opened from the 1st to the 20th of March. The league will start on the 27th of March.

The rules has been freshened up a bit : A TDM squad now has a maximum limit of 6 players. The map pool almost remains the same : Deep Inside, Dreadful Place, Grim Dungeons, Limbus, Purgatory, Ragnarok and a 7th map that hasn't been decided yet (Tornado or Intervention).

Given the success of the donation campaign from the previous season (see the details), we've decided to run a new one for the coming TDM Spring 2016 season. You can donate at Paypal@xou or just use the plain old Paypal link.

Perma-ignoring user chat, how? (7 comments)
Posted by JimmSlimm @ 00:13 CST, 5 February 2016 - iMsg
I want to ignore certain annoying people, it can be done through the menu, admin>toggle mute.

The problem is that if I see those players again in another game, I must toggle mute again! Also, those people can now change their nickname in steam, so one must check for their other aliases to notice it's the same person.

Is there a way to always ignore a certain player regardless of their current alias which stays ignored even if one reboots pc?

classic CTF servers ? (6 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 17:00 CST, 4 February 2016 - iMsg
I only found one good classic CTF server to add in my favorites and it's often full. Does the mode suffers from a lack of servers or players ? Is there still ctf pickups organized ? It seems there are even less CTF servers than TDM (all empty too).

Hello, guys. What is better, how do you think?
Both setups costs ~220EUR.

1'st setup:

2'nd setup:
2x3TB TOSHIBA's (64mb/7200rpm)

The point is: how much would be the difference if with second setup I'll install WINDOWS on 1st HDD and SOFT+GAMES on second?

I have to buy a new mouse... TODAY!!! (8 comments)
Posted by SightUp @ 10:07 CST, 4 February 2016 - iMsg
So I am looking at all the new mice that have been coming out and I don't know which to get. Zowie's have the best form I have ever felt but they have the worst latency lag ever, right? Logitech has the best senor but the least ergonomic design for me. They came out with a new one, the 402, I think. But it's based on old technology. Not sure why they would put a new technology with an old senor that had flaws??

What should I get?

Are you getting the most out of your COX (14 comments)
Posted by flair @ 01:12 CST, 4 February 2016 - iMsg
Are you getting the most out of your COX? My internet provider (COX Communications) actually used to use that as their slogan some years back. With a slogan like that it's no wonder that their service loves to troll it's customers. I am soooo salty right now about the state my COX has degraded to. COX has never been known for being the best out there, but since my only other option is very unstable DSL I'm stuck with them.

I thought COX were for sucking, but my COX sucks.

Since you won't be attending qcon why not add accel again and go back to your old sens (sens 4. accel 0.1, 400dpi) so we can see some old rockets cypher vs evil games? I've been following you since you started using very low accel to counter evils lg your have rockets become much more inconsistent. Even av3k said in an interview that your rockets have gotten worse. I know that in important games like qcon you barely miss your rockets but it hurts to watch you miss all your rockets in situations you usually wouldn't against an over-aggressive lg rushing evil over and over again online. I couldn't think of a more entertaining match than a 2010 homing missile cypher vs current lg hax evil. Funny thing is the last time we saw old sens cypher vs evil was at zotac 133 and cypher won with a 100 ping.

Zowie EC1-A - Defective Trim Lens? (5 comments)
Posted by sfektsz @ 20:25 CST, 3 February 2016 - iMsg
So I sent my Zowie EC1-A for RMA due to defective/faulty sensor, and surprise surprise, the new one I get has the same exact issue.

Can anyone else with a Zowie mouse / Mouse with the 3310 sensor in it, comment on whether or not this is normal? I'm also curious to know what purpose the trim lens serves to the overall functionality of the sensor.

Posted by Riot_Grrl @ 15:20 CST, 3 February 2016 - iMsg
Sooo...finally figured out how to make a half decent demo, and now Youtube's aggressive compression is the only thing keeping the quality low.

Come summer, I'll have been playing this game for a year, so I wanna get a bit better.
Oh, and...don't say my positioning! I'm well aware that I'm often attacking 5 guys while my teammates hide around a corner, hoping an enemy on 1HP walks by. That's mah own demon to slay. And, honestly...some days I quite like that I play like that. Maybe I'll just have to figure out how to stay in the enemy's face and not always be the first to die, but without the cactus fucker +back shit (read the description)
From watching the demo, I'm thinking my rockets have gotten pretty poor, and I'm tending to aim a bit low for some reason. And I think I'm totally not using rail enough.
But, if I were a Quake Yoda, or Mr Miyagi, then it would be you posting this shiz, and me answering it.
"Always too aggressive you are. Hide where your teammates are cowering, you must"
Anyways...apart from the obvious stuff...oh and "Stop using the damn jumppads when you know there's guys up there whoring their LG stats". Yeah...I know. It's just hard to not attack.
So...hit me with that Yoda wisdom! No mystical shit, though, please. :D

A short movie made by myself in 2014 when I was still active but was never really majored nor brought up to light at that time.

I made the entire movie in 60fps 720p, but I suck at encoding apparently so after multiple tries and cries, I uploaded the uncompressed file to youtube and let youtube do the work for me, hence the non-perfect quality and no 60fps. Enjoy it.

Thought it was worth a post since I'm about to come back to QL, which is huge for the entire community obviously *self deluded*

Still, to me, a memento to when I actually knew how to play the game.

#capickup Draft Cup #1 Finished (12 comments)
Posted by PerpetualWar @ 02:57 CST, 2 February 2016 - iMsg
First #capickup draft cup has finished with a success. There were a couple of issues at the very start of signup stage which were resolved swiftly, by our bot developer United Kingdom wdx2. However, for next draft there will be a better method of deliveries of servers for the players to ensure even faster game starts.

Important to mention is that requirements of games played will be raised for the next draft cup, to ensure players ratings are much more stable, which will result in better games for all potential players in future draft cups.

Below you can check final standings, lineups with brackets and some demos & VODs.

interesting notes:

rgb led obviously

ambidextrous shape with side buttons on both sides. it appears you can also swap out the buttons for a flat cover on either/both sides.

wired/wireless with rechargable battery. 24hr battery life with lighting, 36hr without.

pmw3366 (inferred from 200-12000 dpi range and sensor lens/hole)

the OP in the chinese thread mentioned 107g. since removing the battery requires removing screws from underneath the mousefeet, i would assume that this means 107g with the battery, without the cable.

Many of you already know me as gamer and as a freelancer. Im earning per month 700$ - 1200$ to do a freelance job. I was thinking to advertise my business even on ESReality. In return I would like to offer 150$ or more per month for a duel tournament. In time it could be more, depends on my business.

Im looking for casters who will do the job for free in the beginning. I cant afford to spend too much money. I would like to know how it goes. I would like to know if I am allowed to do such business here on ESR.

Payement will be instanty via PAYPAL after tournament is finished.


1st place 100$
2nd place 35$
3rd place 15$

I will need some help to organize this tournament (if it will be approved) I will also need admins and casters.

[Logitech G100S] cannot rocjket jump (8 comments)
Posted by pyron83 @ 07:13 CST, 31 January 2016 - iMsg
I recently bought a G100S and I discovered something unusual:

with that mouse rocket jumping is much more difficult.

I'm obviously speaking with the same sensitivity of other mice (3.0@1000dpi con g100s, Abyssus 1.6@1800dpi, G300 3.0@1000dpi, Kinzuv3 1.5@2000 dpi=

If I switch back to the Abyssus MirrEd or to Kinzu v3 or to G300, the problem doesn't appear.

the only way I can RJ with the G100S is using mouseaccel

Weird weird thing...

In theory, G100S max IPS should be the same of Kinzu v3 or g300, am I wrong?

Any idea?

did someone with g100s discover a similar problem?

I can aim fine, but anything that requires flicking fast as RJ fails badly.

Posted by Kaboosh @ 17:00 CST, 30 January 2016 - iMsg
Just a simple question for you all, who do you think were/are the most underrated and overrated Quake players of all time?
I'd say overrated -> maybe Spart1e
Underrated -> P0ni
So what are your thoughts? (inb4 mray comes in and says k1llsen is most underrated of all times)

This is a fairly well known joke on twitch, but I'd never seen it done to a quake player, challenge accepted!

Please wear headphones and click this JPG link, ty )

Cypher was first target, but had no cam. Was surprised he even clicked the link, next time he sees my name he may think twice lol.
He said it scared him, so I considered it a success.

Garpy was next, no words are necessary :D <3

I also tried ash, but ash too f*cking smart, 'meta there are no surfaces here to make that noise'. Yea yea ok man )

If anyone else has successes, post them in replies (I know gazz12 has one)

Crazy ghosting. Seeing 5 of everything (42 comments)
Posted by Riot_Grrl @ 11:25 CST, 30 January 2016 - iMsg
I THINK it's always been a problem since I got this monitor. It's supposed to be 60hz, but I don't buy that. I don't think I'm seeing 60hz at all. Looks like half that or less.
If I pan even moderately quickly, I see 3 of anything vertical, including enemies. I just aim for the one in front.
I can't tell if previous frames are leaving a ghost image on the most recent, or if it's just my brain still seeing the last few frames..
Is there any way to see the actual monitor refresh rate? I checked the monitor seettings, and it's set to 60, and I'd assume that, if it can display 60hz at a given resolution, then nothing else would affect that as long as the GFX card were sending 60 or more.
I get steady 250fps, but there's no way that what I'm seeing is 60hz. I don't even know how I can test to see whether it's actual ghosting that's actually on screen, or just how it looks to my brain. I don't have a camera that's fast enough to accurately film it and a demo is not gonna show what I'm seeing

Anyways...I think I'm gonna get a 120 or 144hz monitor so..any recommendations if I do? would a 120 at the same price be better if the input lag were lower? I don't even know the lag on my current monitor, but the nearest model I could find has 20ms so...not terrible, but not great

Is wolfcam fully fixed now? (6 comments)
Posted by Riot_Grrl @ 05:40 CST, 30 January 2016 - iMsg
I ain't used it for a while. The version I had could play the new demos, but there were black boxes on the screen. I can't remember what used to be, ammo, something like that.
Anyways, the newest version I can find is 11 test 6. I tried that and get an error message. "Invalid playerstate. Something about player count. Some numbers. Possibly 54." (sorry. Should have written it down)
That was with a recent demo, though it wasn't in the demo folder. I just opened it with wolf whisperer.
Isn't there an 11 test 13? I read that somewhere. Is that the newest version?
Also...Do I really need to keep moving Quake demos to the wolfcam folder? Is there no option to have them saved there in the first place? Or have wolfcam find them in the steam folder?
And...since all my programs are on an SSD and I don't wanna keep writing huge video files to it, where's the option to change the destination of rendered video?
Or, if no such option exists, can I just move the wolfcam folder (well, wolf whisperer with wolfcam inside it) to my storage drive without breaking a load of paths and screwing it up? If not, I guess I'll just reinstall it there. Especially if I need to reinstall anyways

Anyways, whoever writes these things...thankyou for all the work

144HZ MEGAGUIDE (BR/X-syncs busted) (61 comments)
Posted by clerictgm @ 00:58 CST, 30 January 2016 - iMsg
Worldwide investigation about 144hz monitors and blur reduction/syncing technologies.

First about Blur Reduction (ULMB, LightBoost) and G/Free-syncs.
BLUR REDUCTION (also known as ULMB, LightBoost) is useless for gaming. Absolutely.
I’ve tested few types of situations when you need to notice an enemy while fast-turning. For example, fast left-right check (90 deg left + 180 deg right) done in ~<0.5sec in CSGO. And also some fast-turning situations in Reflex and CPMA.
And you know what? BLUR REDUCTION IS ABSOLUTELY USELESS AND RATHER RUINS EVERYTHING THAN HELPING. It's 100%, absolutely not for gaming (unless you are playing Sims 4). And reality is there are no f_k1ng blur reduction at all.
BR just doesn’t work at high speeds.
Yes, if you are playing at comp level, if you are turning fast THERE ARE BLUR with 144Hz@BR ON!
This technology works only when you are looking at slowly moving objects/pictures. Like one in this test;pursuit=0
It moves with 960pixels/sec speed. 960 PER SECOND!!! If your FOV is 106, for example, your 180 will equal 1829 pixels in full HD. With 960/sec pixels speed, it will take 1.9 sec for 180!
With this turning speed you will have no BLUR with 144Hz@BR ON ahahahahahahahaha.
BUT WHO DOES 180 IN ALMOST 2 SECONDS? It’s a time enough for few frags.

So, BR is absolutely useless, and adds THESE FANCY BONUSES to your gaming experience:
1) +Input Lag [equal or less than 1000/refresh rate=??ms] (for example at 144Hz it may be up to 6.94444444ms).
2) +crosstalk/ghosting/overshoot
3) +amplified stutters
4) +flicker
Also kids may cry about and annoy you with links to,, but the truth is:
Blur Reduction looks great when you're staring at high-contrast content with a clear center of attention (like a red UFO flying across a flat background), but it's pointless when you consider the mixed contrast of your average FPS game scene.

G/Free-syncs are useless for gaming. Absolutely.
Tearing? GET HIGH FPS 817CH!
Seriously, if your FPS is 250+ (better 333-500+) you just wouldn’t notice tearing.
Kids would tell you about some fluidity and smoothness. Okay, it’s truth but don’t forget about extra input lag (tiny, but we don’t need that) and that you’ll be forced to cap your FPS to 144. For me 144 is not enough, higher FPS = less input lag. (1000/FPS=??ms). If you have capped 144fps it means you have 6.94444444ms of input lag. With 500FPS it would be just 2ms. Huge difference, isn’t it?

So, all this “TIEKNOLOGEEEZ” are just BS and marketing. Same as 12000DPI in mice (interpolated).
But we are smarter than their marketing departments.

Now lets talk about monitors and how to choose the right one.
The situation is so bad I'm afraid It would be really difficult to get a descend one.
What you need to look at? It’s easy:
1) Low input lag and response time
2) Low amount/no ghosting (overshoot %)
3) Picture quality (contrast ratio, color temperature, color accuracy). Contrast ratio is more important than other parameters, because you can't do anything with poor contrast, for example, but poor colors may be calibrated.

I don't trust BenQ after 2 defective monitors in a row.
PHILIPS has extremely poor build quality (can't get it exactly horizontal, for example, because of weak stand).
AOC has poor contrasts and it's owned by TVP that owns part of PHILIPS..
Eizo/ASUS - using the same panels but just more expensive. And there are many defective 2K IPS monitors from ASUS.
ACER has mostly good reviews, but for some reason it's EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE in my city ACER XB240HA (144Hz 24" TN) costs same as ASUS MG278Q and BenQ XL2730Z (that are 144Hz 27" 2K). This is really strange..
And also there are DELL 144Hz but I know nothing about them and don't think they are highly differs from others.

This problem is really huge. This is not about price segment, as we can see, expensive monitors are bad too.
Getting ASUS MG279Q you have pretty high chance of getting backlight bleeding with a WQHD 2560x1440 IPS 144Hz 4ms for $650. What a shame.
Or this fancy new $1150 ACER Z35 PREDATOR@200Hz that can't work@200Hz because of poor response time. What a shame again.
And do you think they engineers did not know that their product wouldn’t be able to work normally at 200Hz? Then knew it! Acer Z35 is a child of marketing. MOM 200 HZ! But such a low response time, using everything higher than 120Hz not really practical. So, honestly this is a 120Hz monitor.

It's so ugly it even becomes funny. Pay so much@get chineese sh17. Nice.

My next try is Iiyama GB2788HS-B1 and it's promising to be one of the best monitors for competitive gaming, test results are really good:

-1200:1 contrast ratio
-awesome response time
-good native colour temperature

The only thing is need to be done is calibrating colors, but it's not an issue at all.
And also their monitors usually adjustable to fully get rid of ghosting.

There are also Iiyama GB2488HSU and it’s great in all terms, except of contrast (~700:1). It's a shame, it might be the best of the best monitor on the market if it'll have at least 800-850:1.
BUT, there are new revision came out:
Allow me to represent. GB2488HSU-B2 (second, improved revision of GB2488HSU-B1):

1350:1 contrast ratio
top level responsibility
+ good color temp/color accuracy out of the box

I'll test my Iiyama 27" in few days and let you know, guys, is it any good. Iiyama is our last hope :D (and LG24GM77 if you can find it in your city)

All 3 in one table:

Posted by pysn @ 11:04 CST, 28 January 2016 - iMsg
I tried many expensive mice and they broke in months so decided going for cheaper ones as its not worth at all buying top ones which im just able to use for couple months.I play CS:GO with 54.5cm/360 to 19.3cm / 360 without any acceleration and I use Windows 10 Pro 64bit.

WMO (this one exactly:on ebay from takasta, black matte $23.99)
-Not sure if i will have neg accel, whats the lowest sens that I wont get it?
-Only 400 DPI, bad for high sensitivity because of having high ingame sensitivity which skips pixels.
+More durable as I heard.
+Better shape imo (also similar to many mice like Zowie AM, Kana v2, Xai, Kinzu)

+Has adjustable DPI.
+No acceleration.
-Not so durable.

Waiting for your opinion guys!

[CoD4] Hide & Seek Server (11 comments)
Posted by exzz @ 18:35 CST, 26 January 2016 - iMsg

The concept of the mod is really simple, it is the same as other props mods in other games. The hiders can disguise as objects, and hide on the map (or they can even use seeker camouflage). The first player connecting to the server will be the seeker, and at the beginning of each further round the last hider of the previous round will be.

So what does this mod offer? A funny game-play, without cheaters and crying kids, where neither your FPS or your ping matters; Here you also have the time to do anything else while hiding, if you are not in the mood for chatting or flustering.
In addition, I'm really interested in players' feedback, so this mod is always being updated. Don't forget to contact me with any bug, idea, or translating application.

But certainly it's not all, here is a short list of the main features:
- You can choose from many models as a hider, which are different on every map to fit the environment!
- Some object can be edited. For example you can select, what items do you want to be placed on the shelf you are hiding with, and certainly their position too.
- You can earn new ranks, items and abilities. For example, from level 40, you can knife the seekers as a hider!
- Rank based player customization, which contains death effect, player model, music, weapon, and weapon painting!
- Many exciting challenges!
- You can resupply with care package.
- And much more!

Esports interviews series #3 - Strenx (48 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 11:48 CST, 26 January 2016 - iMsg
I have been conducting a research lately around esports and have therefore had the chance to interview some (familiar) faces of esports in search for a better understanding of the phenomenon. At the start of it all, I made clear to my interviewees that their responses were not at first hand meant for wide publishing. However, now that I'm done with using the data, with their agreement, I have the possibility to release it as a series of interviews that can be, in my opinion, an interesting read for many people. So, here it is.

Themes: esports definition, esports origins, women in esports, the sport debate, new technologies, esports audience, esports prospects, upcoming challenges...

Today, I will be releasing the #3 interview notes with France Kevin "Strenx" Baeza. The interview did not need translating, as it was done in english by Strenx leself.

so far i have lost several versions of this game, some bugs have cropt up from previously recovered versions that i have long fixed.

possibly going to try to publish it this christmas if i get lucky with finding royalty free midi tunes to put in this thing.

my stab at evolving the game industry with compeltely whacky artstyle.

this will get realeased sooner or later since i have time and only time unless something bad happens.

posting it on google docs for the lack of money to host this on a website.

hope it helps someone. not looking for money but just for things to do in my life. i have been a pathetic basement dweller my entire life at least this should change things up.

Bolus' Thoughts - Duckywas of Zero (20 comments)
Posted by bolus major @ 10:34 CST, 25 January 2016 - iMsg
First of all I would like to know how many people here use a mechanical keyboard.

Cause these things are outrageously expensive (imo). I've played 5 years of quake on a 5 euro keyboard that only now is starting to show signs of wear. I do need to mention I don't punch my keyboard in anger.

Anyway I bought a Ducky Zero thing recently, brown cherry switches, 90 euro / $100.

As the name implies, it's a no nonsense piece of kit. You barely recognise its gaming focus and that's a good thing.

It also weighs about 8 times more than my old membrane keyboard, so it doesn't slide around.

The feeling of the mechanical switches is really nice, though I think I would try red switches next time for a little more feedback. It's also good that I can spam a few keys at a time cause my old thing couldn't handle that and it resulted in some movement fails.

Still, I think I paid too much for this, it should be like 50 euro max. I tried to find something cheaper and failed. Anyone know of a mechanical keyboard that is affordable? Otherwise we should start ESR MECHANICAL KEYBOARD DEVELOPMENT topic a.s.a.p.

I hope this minimal review is useful to someone, I rarely see a keyboard topic here, whereas mice and pads are hot topic always.

Cheery'oh laddins.

Everyone who's able to host a private and unlisted server for the cups please speak up and PM the IPs to 125fps official casters (namely sphuld, crisfnx).
Dedicated servers are best of course.

Include the server country, the connection bandwidth, and availability for cups.

sv_master 0; // unlisted server
g_timeoutCount 999; // for tactical Evil pausing
g_password "K1llsen";
sv_includeCurrentMapInVote 1; // obvious

FPS drops in certain places (20 comments)
Posted by Brancaleone @ 05:23 CST, 24 January 2016 - iMsg
Ok guys, I'm having an issue that is quite annoying, I hope that someone can help me. My laptop isn't so good, so I've set maxfps at 125. In some maps the game runs smoothly (ztn, aerowalk, campgrounds, almost lost, lostworld), but in some others my fps drops to 50-60 for some moments everytime I go to certain places, for example:
furious heights next to GL over RG;
elder almost everywhere, especially in the RA room;
black cathedral in various places around the map;
and a lot of other places. Do you have any clue of why it happens? What should I do?

Logitech surface tuning causes spinout? (21 comments)
Posted by Riot_Grrl @ 11:07 CST, 23 January 2016 - iMsg
So, I decided to finally have a go at learning to rocket jump. Been playing like 9 months and never got round to it. So sue me. I kinda suck at it too. Sue me again..

But things weren't helped by finding myself suddenly looking at the floor or roof. Hell, at the end of the video, I started spinning and just kept spinning and looking at the floor. I think I've had this issue before and it went away when I went back to the default surface setting.
Anyone else had problems with surface tuning? Is this a thing, or is it just me?
I tried blowing out the sensor with compressed air. I can go back to the default surface setting, but it raises the LOD significantly. :(

144hz T/N vs 144hz IPS Panel Input lag? (8 comments)
Posted by Sporx @ 05:14 CST, 23 January 2016 - iMsg
I'm looking to move from 120 hz to 144 hz . My old 60 hz secondary monitor has crapped out and i'm looking to use my 120 hz as my new secondary, also i've come into a little bit of money at around this time so it works out for me.

So heres my main problem. I would love to buy an IPS panel, and I am aware of the expense... the thing is the few that are around at 144hz sit at a 4 ms response time. you guys have a link to any articles that interpolate response time and input lag on a scale of some sort? Or better yet have any of you had the chance to use one of these 4 ms IPS panels and noticed any discernible floaty input delay ?

If theres input delay its fine, i'll settle on one of many 144hz 1 ms T/N panels.

You guys were really helpful when I asked about mice after breaking my 10+ year hiatus of lurking a few months ago. One thing that was linked to me was that one chart that shows the fail rates of sensors at low DPI. That really helped me decide on my current g303 and introduced me to finalmouse hype, lol.

So in the spirit of that if anyone has any discussion thread or chart or information I can dig into to find out if 4 ms 144 hz IPS would be playable please please let me know and thanks again.

Hello there,

I presume most of you heard Quake 2 soundtrack, including tracks from expansion packs. If you did not, time to catch up:

If you don't like them, gtfo.

For those who do, here is a great video I found by accident: "Stroggified: A Sonic Mayhem tribute"
