This is ESReality bitch we dont wanna hear about the wars that you been thru,
Bitch i got so many assault riffles in my storage unit I could afford to throw you a pistol.
See what you doing is trying to go to war with a pitbull,
When your core is built like a 4 year old Shih Tzu,
So i'ma roll up into ya studio while your homies are recording with you and K.O you so fucking hard that the force that hits you will feel like an Ethianopian Cobra kissed you.
And everybody in this ESReality journal, gon witness me start morphing into Yoshimitsu when i hold you up and slit ya throat with a broken Ginsu and keep poking so many holes up in ya thick skull, The moment that i swing the sword against you i'ma gounge, In a circular motion and keep poking into ya solar plexus til I deform your organ tissue and leave you on the corner of the table folded like a fucking order menu

"I still remember the day that multiplayer started just barely working in Doom. I had two DOS boxes set up in my office—in addition to my NeXT workstation—to test multiplayer. The IPX networking was forwarding user input between the systems, but there was no error recovery, so it was very fragile. Still, I could spawn two marines in a test level, and they could look at each other.
I was strafing back and forth on one system and looking over my shoulder at the other computer, watching the marine sprite slide side to side in front of the other player's pistol. I let it coast down, centered on the screen, and turned to the other computer. "Bang!" "Urgh!" Twitch. Shuffle. Big smile. :-) "Bang!" "Bang!" "Bang!" "Bang!" There was a consistency failure before the first frag was truly logged, but it was blindingly obvious that this was going to be awesome."

After 1-2 years no quake I thought I could be fun to play it again... but
I cant play my favorite duel map bloodrun anymore
I cant force team colors anymore
and this was enough to quit because I know I will find more things I wont be able to set/play anymore.
I wonder if its ID's extortionate plan to force people to the small premium community or do they actually want to make people leave quakelive in general.
I've choosen the last choice and uninstalled it immediately. well played ID
The twin brothers will clash, because the world isn't big enough for the two of them ;-)
They rarely confront each other in cups and tournaments, but now - the time has come!
Lets get ready to rumbleeeeeee (c)
When: 11 December 2013 at 13:00 CST Format: Cointoss winner is first picker, loser picks next map, play all 7 maps! Map Pool: Aerowalk, Blood Run, Sinister, Furious Heights, Hektik, Lost World, Cure PrizePool: 10$ for every map! ($70)

I saw the discussion about not having quake at dreamhack anymore due to no profit (low number of viewers, etc,..) In Slovenia we just got announced that there is going to happen a LAN which will also have Quake Live. There is no prize money announced for quake yet. I was thinking that we can make prize money happen with donations. Quake community could also help them by setting quake and getting some sponsors. Donations should be done to most trusted quaker (memento_mori). However, this is just a suggestion from me.
EPICENTER LAN 2 will take place on the 8th and 9th of February 2013 in Murska Sobota, Slovenia. Over the course of two days, a record breaking 11 different tournaments will take place, including but not limited to Call of Duty: Ghosts, League of Legends, StarCraft 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Dota2, Quake Live and Street Fighter XIV. As was the case at the previous event, videogame tournaments will not be the only things happening, as we will host numerous promotions and fun tournaments that will make sure that the attendees remember the event, and the sponsors.
The first event was well recieved by the gaming public, as we had over 85 players present, and more than 150 visitors, who rated the event with an average of 4.5/5. The rating presents a high standard, that we will try our best to beat with the second edition of the event.
I was going to post a similar suggestion. If we start donating now, with some emphasis every month helped by the casters (zoot, faceit, etc) we can get to a very relevant prizepool within a year ! I'll be gladly donating aswell as I've been for this dh prizepool. If we get to a decent prizepool before this june we surely can make the dh headadmins think about it. They would not have to put any money in it appart from setting up a place for players to play and squeeze quake in into some dreamarena-like stage for playoffs or even just the finals...
If however the prizepool doesn't convince the dh headadmins, we can always decide to use that money on other events.

Maybe I’m on a slow train, but I’m starting to notice a drastic increase in aliasing in NA servers. There are more aliases than ever before and they come in bunches. They know eachother, invite to private premium servers, and I was in 4v4 games with 4-5 people whose accounts are 1.5 month old, but skill level seems to be 2000+ elo.
#1 Advantage in this game is stable accounts and progress tracking. It’s what gets majority people engaged (of course it’s not like that for you, you standup guy). In addition, people created and embraced and paid for QLranks, which provides even more value to this game through observing self-improvement by tracking tangible measures.
This is about all that quake has going for us right now. There are no stable leagues, clans, weekly team competitions (especially in NA). Progress tracking is all that’s left.
Now you. You crafty smart evil sonovabitch. Kudos for making a 100th account and reaping 80% percent win with +150 elo per game. Sure, you gonna get a rise out of a few people, an occasional forum post, a troll medal, perhaps. I hope you realize one thing: you behavior is unsustainable. For reasons above, by destroying matchmaking and progress tracking, you are delivering a fatal blow to a fragile community and before you know it, there will be nothing but idiots like you left circlejerking eachother around. I cannot possibly believe that after acquiring your level of skill, and playing this game for hours every day lasting for YEARS you don’t have a bit of appreciation for everything that makes it great for new, habitual, and usual honorable quakers.

Coming Sunday will see the second Warsow Winter Challenge qualifier starting at 12:00 CST. After a succesful first qualifier with 16 entrants, we hope to increase the number of participants to over 16. During these qualifiers players can earn ranking points for the Top12 standings. At the end of the qualifiers, the top twelve players will be seeded into the group stage, to battle it out for their share in the $1,000 prize pool.
Name: Warsow Winter Challenge Qualifier #1 Game: Warsow 1.03 Time: 12:00 CST, 15 December 2013 Gametype: DUEL Format: Single Elimination BO3 Seeding: Seeding will be done on basis of this ranking and is done so automatically by tourney.cc Signups: Up until 12:00 CST on Sunday Checkin: From 11:15 CST on Sunday up until cup start at 12:00 CST Servers: Any duel server that is suitable for both players. DTEKT esports duel server is available should you need it. If players can not agree on a server, an admin will choose one for them.
Maps: wdm2, wdm3, wdm5, wdm6, wdm10, wdm12, wdm17 Map choice: Cointoss. Winner of the cointoss picks a map, loser picks a map. Loser bans a map, winner bans a map. Loser bans his final map and winner picks the third map to be played from the two remaining maps.
Players are asked to join the channel before the cup starts. This ensures finding your opponent quickly, resolving any issues that might occur swiftly... It will save us a lot of time and trouble. Cup page: Homepage Signup: Signup page
To get more players, id needs to restructure the system. Whoever designed it must have never played any kind of sports, and also never studied or heard of sports psychology. Let me explain it simply for the id software engineers:
Players do not like to lose reputation. If they lose games under an alias, they don't lose reputation. That means, if players can be anonymous, they are more likely to play. Forcing people to have a static identity is one of the most game-killing things you could possibly do. We have never, in the history of Quake, Doom, Wolfenstein or anything else, had a problem with people using aliases or playing anonymously. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
The solution is easy: separate match-stats from practice-stats, and let people play anonymously. The latter of these things means, statistics are not kept and aliases can be used freely.
Two compilations by MrHollyDriv3r of CPM and VQ3 records performed by various players during defrag world cups. Be sure to check MrHollyDriv3r's youtube channel for a lot more awesome defrag/freestyle videos.
Note: there are two différents videos in stream, CPM & vQ3 ! Those are made from the movie DFWC[df.] splitted.
The humble guys over at DreamHack recently uploaded the whole set of VODs to their official YouTube Channel. A total of 32 matches have been uploaded and are listed below following the tournament format. Enjoy the show and mind you, this post is not spoiler free.
A new community frag movie from the recent demo call has been released.
Callahan is currently looking for more demos.
IF interested, email your demo file, a description of what happened (air rocket, amazing rail, etc.), and what time it happened to: firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, it is recommended to download the movie because of youtube quality distortion.
Hi there! As a little introduction im a casual player from Hungary has been around quake always for the past years and now i got some motivation to play better and step out of the average player role. About my nick, well probably its not saying anything but i use trb on a q3 mod. The problem is im struggling with finding an opponent to pracc with. I would like to put the effort and time to take gaming to a way higher level than just playing around. If anyone around with a high experience is willing to play vs me like weekly some days or even daily some hours and also has same feelings about stepping to the way of professional gaming then drop a msg on me please.
Hope i wrote this to the right place. Hf in the arena ;)

Is anyone else experience major loading lag on the Home Page?
For me, the main, Home page can take up to 7 or 8 seconds to load to where being able to click links is possible. In addition, clicking links to leave the home page(for example, the Forums tab in the top right or the Articles, as another) takes at least 5 seconds before I can see the next page I've clicked. Edit: This only happens when going to or from the Home page. I can click anything else on the site and it's just Jim Dandy, but, if it involves Home page, no dice.
When it occurs, the mouse cursor stays unusable because of whatever is happening, whether coming to or leaving the Home page.
I noticed this since a couple of days, now. It started around the time that the "DHW 2013 INTERVIEWS COLLECTION BY FACEIT" post was put on the Front/Home page. It's the only thing that changed, from what I can tell and didn't happen before the first time I noticed the thread. Though, I didn't consider that post as a possibility until later.
Could all the links inside the body/white box of the "DHW 2013 INTERVIEWS COLLECTION BY FACEIT" be causing this? If so, is there a way that I can hide the post, should that be the instigator? I looked a bit but didn't notice an option to hide posts.
Anyway, this is not a complaint, but rather, I'm seeing if it is just me or others are having this trouble. I've tried deleting all my internet history/cache/everything to do with that(which I do everyday, anyways.). Rebooting, etc. None helped.

As I may have already eluded to, I was wanting to start a stream, mostly so that I can create some content aimed at helping newer player or even guys who are already good but want to get better still and might be feeling somewhat stuck!
The content would cover basically everything that i know about quake, such as me going over my entire cfg talking about gear, talking about maps etc etc as well as streaming whilst playing, although unlike most other streams my goal would be to talk whilst im playing similar to the other youtube videos i have already put out such as this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg6neou9sAo)
However I have run into trouble, in the fact that the internet I have is way way wayyyyy too bad to actually stream. 4 download .3 upload :P. So after talking to a few people, we have decided the best idea is to either have someone else stream my pov whilst i talk OR just to capture videos like I have done already.. however I would prefer to stream so I could do it more.. cause im too lazy :P
Anyway the point of this is to perhaps find a volunteer to help me out! And if not ill look into other options!

We are open to suggestions and hope that this will bring people some fun games to play and watch, we're hoping diabz (the real one) will do the streaming, or if anyone can give a hand with that would great. Let us know if weekly is too often, we may change to fort nightly.
At the end of the last ODC, if given enough attention to warrant it, we will repeat the whole thing again starting from King of Aim.

My steelseries kana just broke... so I need a new mouse. I have relatively big hands, the kana was a tad too small for my liking.
The mouse has to be able to run at 500hz without having to overclock it manually for windows 7. Low lift off distance (dunno how it's called exactly) is a must too. No drivers is a good thing too. I was thinking about the Zowie EC1 evo. Anyone here who has got experience with this mouse?
Please share experiences about your favorite mouse!
P.S. anyone tried the Zowie CL mouse yet?

I had this dream
You wake up in this little city called Campgrounds, Texas. Everyone runs around with weapons and some retarded red armors, some people even look like they are blue. Immigration is very big in Texas these days, as you live next to a Mexican Guy with no drive to win but a bit of talent. Next door there's a wise old man, he's a russian with a very strong accent, apparently famous, as all kind of people go there. In every house there's always this tall english guy on TV all the time.. South of your house lives this strange couple, she's from NZ while he looks crazy and always busy.
Days pass by while you don't get at all what happened to your previous life, on sundays TV gives something else than the Russian Channel and TallGuyTV, even if it's always the same sport. There's always a lot of talk about the Dream 4, whatever that is, and some weekly medals you get in various cities to get qualified.
One morning, out of nowhere, the wise old guy comes to your house and asks for a favor. Turns out his name is Poloz and he wants to give you a weapon (welcome to Texas) if you help him. In his lab there are many people, the Mexican guy is there and a chubby belgian is looking around seemingly lost.. Given the choice between three weapons, you take the rocket launcher. Because real men use the rocket launcher. Then this guy called insan1/2 takes the LG, while chubby guy takes the Railgun (the name sounded like Dem3n and but you can't tell where he comes from, probably a worthless place).
Apparently some pretty stupid guys are trying to take over the nearby TV Station with force and Poloz needs help: the sheriff of the town isn't at home. These guys love to call themselves the Team Death Match and want to kidnap Tall Guy to get some of their people at the TV station, calling for a newcome of their favorites. They claim to be a huge organizzation, getting bigger each and every day. The guys talking said their names: Lamb and Vision, while Poloz knew the other two: BunnyF and Valium.
You are clearly the weak wheel, Poloz is old and you are getting smashed without any mercy.. Untill out of nowhere, the Russian look at the sky and screams "PASHA!!" a Big Guy comes flying in from above, calls for code 102: Deliberate Murder (Da faq? Noone's dead) and after 3 other guys come in they manage to save your ass, the TV station, Tall guy and ultimately the town.
After everything is done you get to know that the sheriff of the town (some Cooll guy) is there very rarely so others usually help him, and he's one of the guys you need to beat if you wanna try the Dream 5.
The name of the Town is Lost World.
After some heat talking in russian beween them, turns out that poloz saved your ass from a beating because he's well connected: you can't bring Railguns in Lost World. So you just get invited (strongly) to live the place and go to the next one... Aerowalk.
The lesson, as always: i played too much quake and pokemon

Many of you are fans of the NFL. For those who are not, I will inform you of some interesting statistics:
Firstly, the top two teams in the entire league are the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. Secondly, both Colorado and Washington recently legalized marijuana. Coincidence? I think not.
Recently, the New Orleans Saints (my home team), lost very heavily to the Seattle Seahawks (where I now live near - Olympia to be specific). While I always am unhappy with the Saints losing (not really, because i'm 32, and the Saints used to be absurd), I think the point is very clear - New Orleans needs to legalize weed. I was just in New Orleans a month and a half ago, and while the city was doing well, the weed was still illegal.
I guess the point i'm trying to make, is that weed should be legalized. And only when it is legal, can any teams possibly manage to compete with the Seahawks and the Broncos. So if you guys want to have winning football teams... legalize weed. Case closed.
The primary problem with QL, is that there is too much emphasis placed on winning and losing. The best thing you can do, is get on a server and play. Whether you lose 50-0, or win 50-0, what matters is that you are on the servers. All this 'skill-matching' and elo rating and useless statistics crap is completely ruining the game. Players are not rewarded for playing, they are only rewarded for winning. The only possible result of such a horrendous system, is a steady decline of players on servers.
Ignore the stupidly conceived QL system, and just get the fuck on the servers. More time on servers = good. Anything else = bad. It wouldn't be a terrible idea for id to pay people minimum wage to do nothing more than sit on servers and play whoever is looking for a game. Empty servers with no one to play against is the worst possible thing for profit and in general. Even a matter of uncertainty decreases the amount of subscriptions. If it was assured, that there would be someone to play against, people would be more likely to purchase subscriptions. If id pays less in player/employee costs than they make from additional subscription/advertisement revenue, the model would be financially effective.
Until id software learns how to design a suitable system, the community will simply have to compensate for their shortcomings... as has traditionally been the case.

I am desperately seeking for a good mouse for fingertip grip, but so far I really can`t decide which mouse I should buy and I hope that you guys might give me some good advice.
So far I personally liked the logitech mx300 of all my mice the most and my new mouse should have a fairly similar size.
The price doesn`t matter. I just want to have the best mouse possible for my needs )
I already informed myself about some mice for fingertip grip and I found out that the logitech g100s, razer abyssus and zowie fk would quite fit into my beliefs, but as I already mentioned I really can`t figure out which mouse would be the best for me.
So if anybody got some good advice for me feel free to answer )

We're back! After last week's absence caused by recording failure of unknown origin the show got scrapped due to my inability to fix it in time for it to stay relevant. Sincere apologies to my guest ShadyAK and to dem0n who finally got mentioned hehe. No luck this time though. Talkink is danger is here with Zoot sharing his opinion about the recent developments. Unfortunately the last message i received from qwih sounded like 'help, they're everywhere!', so I just assumed that he got eaten by the famous giant London rats.
Sorry for the lack of an episode last week guys. I do my best but no one's perfect. This is a good one though. I'm also gonna have a new setup for the next one so things will improve as I hope they were doing anyway in the meantime. Tune in and enjoy!
WARNING! Opinions and attitude presented in the show are to be associated with the hosts EXCLUSIVELY. Podcast contains some explicit language, big quantities of rambling and mild drug references. Listener discretion is advised.
This was the best and only mouse I could ever use to play QW... and now they are impossible to find. Anybody know a good comparable mouse or know of a place that sells them? I've been scouring ebay for months and cant find anything... Hell, if there was a shop selling them for $100+, I'd buy 2!

Scheduled: 07:00 CST, 15 December 2013 Begins In:
#ctfpickup (Quakenet) is hosting a draft on Sunday, December 15. Sign-ups begin Monday, December 9 and will last until Saturday, December 14. The first 64 sign-ups will have a guaranteed spot in the draft, with players after the 64th sign-up taking substitute positions.
To sign up for the draft write !sign in #ctfpickup. You can only sign up if you've played 5 games in the channel. This is necessary to determine a proper rating for the team-generation.
On Sunday (15.12.) at 13:00CET the check-in will start and last for one hour. Everybody who signed up previously should check-in to finally save his spot. Especially people who signed up after the 64 player limit should check in, because in case someone with a save spot doesn't show up other people will get his spot. Note: The order matters, the earlier someone signs up the more likely the chance to get a spot.
1)All games take place on German servers unless both team captains agree to play somewhere else.
2)Everyone must record demos and make them available for admins if requested.
It is an immediate forfeit loss for the entire team if anyone fails to record demos at any point.
3)Please remember the intention of this draft is for fun and enjoyment.
Of course have a bit of fun/banter but please no excessive abuse towards other draft players.
If it is deemed to be too excessive then you will be removed from the whole tournament.
4)If one team is late by more than 15 minutes, then an admin will likely award a forfeit win to the other team.
Please make sure you are on time.
5)Voice comms must be used by all players who are competing in this draft.
You can ask smove to create a temporary channel for this draft on the ctfpickup.eu TS server.
6)If for whatever reason, a player can no longer participate in the tournament,
they can be replaced by another quake player who has so far not participated in the tournament
but this players rating can be no more than 15 higher rating.
Hey guys, just want to get some input on whether I should be matching com_maxfps to my monitor refresh rate (i.e., refresh = 120hz, com_maxfps = 120), or if I should still stick with the (current) max of com_maxfps = 125. My logic/intuition says that if I was previously playing on a 60hz monitor and com_maxfps = 125 felt better than com_maxfps = 120 or 60 (for an extreme example), then 125fps should still be the better choice. Agreed? Or just wishful thinking?
Feel free to also weigh in on how this discussion might be affected by the rumored upcoming option to set com_maxfps = 250?
To give a bit of background, I've been playing QL on my 2010 MacBook Pro laptop screen for the past couple years, but now have a Benq XL2420T on the way, so I'm trying to prepare for how to adjust my config when it arrives on Monday.

I just got Samsung syncmaster 959NF crt. I was using same monitor in the past and didn't experience any problem, i was playing the game smoothly at 120 hz but now i have this weird problem. Map floors and walls are weird, i have like this weird stains..I mean just the colors don't flow nicely one into other(hard to explain with words).
Anyways plz take a look and share your opinion. Tnx in advance.
