Looking for high quality visual config (No comments)
Posted by storm @ 04:58 CDT, 27 May 2016 - iMsg
Heya,

I'm looking for a high visual quality config that used to be available on the old VoodooExtreme site back in 99', it was made by Brett '3Fingers' Jacobs, it was designed for the 12mb Voodoo 2. I think he was the guy who made that 'crusher' timedemo map of 64 players in deathmatch for benchmarking.

Anyway, it seems it's completely lost to the internet and google isn't bringing up any results apart from dead links. Does anyone happen to have such an obscure config still laying around somewhere?

Thanks =)

Fix for game crashes (No comments)
Posted by BaMoFu @ 16:19 CDT, 26 May 2016 - iMsg
There is a better fix than the one previously discussed in a thread. Hopefully it works for the lot of you who's still having problems since it really is an inconvenience to kill the awesomium process everytime you've joined a server. Try this instead: rightclick on Steam.exe, choose properties/compatability and then in the droplist choose your OS. In my case it was Win 7. Works splendidly for me, hope it works for you people still having problems and for you who's using the "kill awesomium process" fix too.

Best nvidia drivers for win7 (9 comments)
Posted by Nofri @ 18:42 CDT, 25 May 2016 - iMsg
Didnt update those for a while so wonder whats currently the best nvidia driver for win7 in terms of lowest input lag.
With poor nvidia coding that was always pain in the ass since different drivers introduced different sort of problems such as worse fps or higher input lag and there were just few chosen ones which were considered flawless such as old 186.82 or later on 295.73 etc. So wonder whats the safiest go now among those shitty drivers in post 300. era?

Hide the weapon in overwatch ? (53 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 15:08 CDT, 23 May 2016 - iMsg
Anyone knows if it will be possible to hide the gun in future OW patches ? Or at least having the possibility to make it at the center or left of the screen ?

I'm asking that because it's possible to hide the gun in games like the new Unreal Tournament, Team Fortress 2, the new DOOM etc...

And considering that they plan to make the sensitivity slider more "precise" and that you can already change your FOV and crosshair, why not more weapons configurations in future patches ?

My thoughts about the new Doom game. (27 comments)
Posted by kapca @ 14:30 CDT, 23 May 2016 - iMsg
I clocked in more than 20 hours (which is sadly a high number for me nowadays), so here is my opinion.

Let’s get over with the multiplayer first: It’s awful! It’s so bad it literally hurts! Whoever made it with the moduls, the DLCs, and the whatevers, they can go and die in a fire as far as I’m concerned, because it’s shit.

The single player is a different thing tho.
- Yes the graphics is pretty far from being a technical marvel in 2016. It's static and it will age badly because of the low res megatextures.
- Yes it’s repetitive, and you gonna do the same thing over and over again until the end
- Yes it’s the same bad story telling again from id
- Yes the enemies are stupid, and there are not enough of them
- etc.

But,
- It’s beautiful and it’s fast (on a modern system)
- The weapons and the responsiveness feels so good, it’s like kissing tits: It doesn’t matter how many times you do it, it never gets old (e.g.: <3 plasmagun).
- There is actually a nice story this time, but who cares, when you have awesome weapons and enough ammo.
- The enemies are indeed stupid sadly, but Nightmare is challenging enough to keep you busy and smiling.

I hated Doom 3 and Quake 4 and I was sure that this one will be bad too, but I was wrong. While it's nothing like the original Doom was (sadly), this new Doom SP is not bad at all and it was great fun for me tbh. Now all we need is some new campaigns, online coop and lots of enemies modded in:)

ps.: Oh and again, whoever did the multiplayer: please die!

Quake may be next reboot project from id (80 comments)
Posted by Clau @ 16:06 CDT, 19 May 2016 - iMsg
Hello my fellow Quakers,


I found an article on hexus.net regarding a possible Quake reboot project from iD Software.

http://hexus.net/gaming/news/industry/92876-q...-software/

Bethesda and id Software have only just pushed the DOOM reboot out of the door – last Friday. Now it looks like they want another roll of the reboot dice, as a number of job vacancy adverts have appeared mentioning the Quake franchise. The ads, posted on the official Zenimax Media website, have given fresh new hope to fans of the Quake franchise hoping for a new game in the series.


Here is a quote from that advert:
id Software is looking for an Art Supervisor to work as part of a development team on legendary game properties like DOOM and QUAKE, developing custom tools and technology for the game industry's most advanced titles.

Here is the link to it:
https://jobs.zenimax.com/requisitions/view/920

What do you guys think, could this mean they are working on a new Quake? I hope so! :)

An exposition on why Quake 'failed' (63 comments)
Posted by zlr @ 19:03 CDT, 18 May 2016 - iMsg
I see a lot of people on the internet think of the oldschool shooters as 'mindless' twitch FPS games that don't require any tactics. I've seen this in vods, trailers, twitch chat over the years and it got me thinking of why Quake doesn't exist in modern gaming culture.

When those people watch team games in Quake all they see is 'people shooting stuff'. However, at every LAN event I have been to over the years, and I have been to a lot of tournaments since the early 2000's for Q3 and Q4, most I have spoken to at the events who have never seen Quake played before were very impressed by the duelers when they were up on the big screen. At many events the duelers got the crowd cheering more than the CS and RTS games did, and many people I spoke to said they found watching Quake to be the best part of the tournament. Duel is the reason why Quake is considered the pinnacle of FPS skill by non-quakers who know what they are talking about.

And to be honest, CTF and TDM tactics aren't that advanced when you consider the bigger picture in Quake, it's more about acquired CTF/TDM mode experience and being able to instinctively and habitually work well with the other 3-4 players on the team without having to communicate the overall strategy because the gameplay is so fast paced that by the time one person articulates a strategy the opportunity to apply the in depth tactical routes / teamwork / maneuvers has already gone. It is chaotic, teammates are dieing and respawning constantly and being repositioned elsewhere throughout the whole game. Compare that to CS where the casters have a whole bunch of time to talk about the overall strategy and what is going on because the game is slow enough to allow it.

I would estimate that 70-80% of what goes on in a game of CTF or TDM is not recognised by a viewer who doesn't understand the complexities of Quake, whereas with Duel it is more noticeable and the casters have more time to explain what is happening and why.

There has been a few threads on ESR trying to say why Quake has failed, Disrepute tried to blame the focus on duel as the reason, others say it's iDsoftware's fault, but so far everyone is only peeling one side off the methaphorical 'banana' that is 'why quake failed.' It's more complex than what has been discussed so far. Tennis for example shows that a 1v1 sport can be very successful where the top percentage of players in the world make an extremely good living off playing from travelling around the world competing in grand slams and smaller tournaments, and the grand slams are watched by millions of people.

So I sat down and tried to reason through why Quake has failed and get to the core reason why, and came up with the following summaries:

Increased popularity of the gaming industry: It is a fact that starting from the early 2000's most games that are massively popular are dumbed down to make them more accessible to a wider range of audiences. The more popular something is, the easier and more friendly it is to lower skilled players. Quake in its current form just does not fit into the modern gaming culture because it demands dedication, skill, determination and most relevantly lots of time and practice to get to a high level. Quake is a game for people who are competitive, but the majority of the gaming culture just want to play games to have fun by themselves or with friends or waste time on something that makes them feel good.

Inept adaption by iDsoftware: iD failed to see the trends of popular gaming, or saw it and chose to ignore it. Instead of following the trends of modern FPS of dumbing down gameplay and make it more simple, introducing experience levelling, item unlocks, achievements, ladders, etc they released games like Quake4 and thought they could just repeat the same success they had with all of their flagship games before. By the time Q4 came out the whole culture of gaming had already changed dramatically in that it wasn't just a select few 'nerds' playing it at school any more. By the time Q4 came out there was already masses of casuals getting into gaming and with all the easier and more accessible alternatives to Quake4 that was out at the time it had no chance of drawing a large number of players.

Regulated official eSports oversight: there is no governing body that decides the rules and regulations of 'electronic sports'. Anyone can throw up a website, run a tournament, and call it esports. With real life sports, going back to tennis as an exmaple, you had set rules that have been in place for years and these rules are applied globally and controlled centrally for all official tournaments. Sports have a standard that must be met by tournaments, an official ATP tennis tournament cannot simply say 'we are going to dumb down the professional game of tennis by allowing a second ball bounce so we can get more participants and make more money,' however this is what has happened in 'esports' over the years. When you consider what is an 'electronic sport' skill, Quake is a timeless skill that still hasn't been matched today in any popular modern FPS games. With a more regulated eSports body that is honest and operates on integrity and focuses purely on the most skillful forms of 'electronic' sports, Quake may have seen more success than it did for a longer period of time.

Popular gaming culture and consumerism: With the advent of popular gaming culture comes big money, big companies and consumerism. A game like Quake was made in a era before gaming was part of everyones lives in popular culture. Some of the pressures of consumerism did not have as much of a part to play as it does now. Truely competitive gamer numbers pale in comparison to the casual market who are not competitive. If you are playing a game casually for the simple of reason of enjoyment and that 'new' feeling you get when you try a new game for the first time and you aren't interested in being competitive and practicing, you will run out of stuff to do very quickly in the pre-2000 era of gaming. Big publishers recognised this and this is when you started to see all of the bells and whistles come into a game like achievements, unlocks, experience levelling, etc (in FPS games, obviously RPG's had this formula already). Once a casual player has finally sunk hundreds of hours into their game to unlock all of the meaningless achievements a brand new game is already out again these days. Now they can do the same thing all over again. By the time 2008/2009 came around, iD finally caught on and attempted to modernise Q3 in the form of Quakelive, but it was executed poorly which resulted in large queue times on launch day, ineffective matchmaking and ranking, a tiny budget and bad marketing and decision making.

Conclusion/Summary:

When you consider all of this, and what Quake's strong points are and why there is a dedicated small number of players who love it and recognise it for its brilliance, you will realise that Quake and popular gaming can't co-exist how we would want it. To make Quake popular today and played by hundreds of thousands or millions of players, you need to chop out the heart of Quake to the point that it won't even be recognisable as Quake any more.

I think there is nothing that could have been done to prevent Quake from losing its spot as the most popular competitive FPS while retaining the part of what makes Quake so good, given the trends of popular gaming culture and how it is driven by big publishers whose only goal is more $$$, however if a number of things were done differently by iDsoftware, community organisers and a couple of sponsors Quake could have still been a staple eletronic sport today, it wouldn't have had huge numbers of players, but a bracket of professionals that played on a year round circut similar to how tennis operates. Non-quakers enjoy watching Quake, just like people who have never played tennis enjoy watching the grand slams, because they can appreciate the masters and skill that the players have. I know many people who have played tennis maybe once or twice in their life, but still watch the grand slams. It could have been the same for Quake.

Quake demanded excellence, honesty and professionalism in a culture and industry of mediocrity, laziness and greed. I think that it's too late to change anything now, unfortunately.

Quake 3 retrospective memories (11 comments)
Posted by Red Spark @ 07:21 CDT, 18 May 2016 - iMsg
If there are still some people old enough to remember those times, it would be interesting to hear their perspective on what Q3 was like back in its very early days (1999 - 2001). How did it play, what bugs were present, what hardware was popular back then. Was it playable without competitive mode? How public games were going? What did patches bring to the table? How competitive scene started to arise?

Would be great to see some interesting stories from the dawn of the new millennium.

Quakelive on the brink of collapsing (258 comments)
Posted by un4x @ 17:45 CDT, 17 May 2016 - iMsg
Hello everyone,

Many of you may have lately noticed the various unfortunate events that have taken place in our QuakeLive community.

1) HOQ TDM this season was pretty devastating. Teams couldn't gather players and many clans decided to drop. Streamers barely casted 1/3 games.
2) #tdmpickup has taken a hit and has dropped from around 200 average connected players on the channel to an average of 150 and sometimes less than 130 at nights.
3) #capickup has completely stopped and has not had a single game in over 2 months
4) #ctfpickup is struggling to gather 8 players for a game (barely a couple of games a day)
5) the duel scene has gone pretty inactive.
6) Most top notch streamers have stopped caring or have other priorities (zoot, disrepute, ddk, etc)
7) Surely other events I can't think of atm

We are reaching the point where we every player counts, and where imho we are on the verge of reaching particularly low numbers leading to a flee of the very few players left.

To all those who still love this game and who always have, wether it is old school players are recent new blood, I urge everyone to make a move.

If you love this game and wish to keep it from becoming what Quakeworld, Quake2 and Quake4 have become then now is the time to act.

Everyone can contribute in some way, wether it is motivating old school players you know to come back or simply playing a few games yourselves....

Think of the nostalgic old days where clanbase would host an opencup with over 125 teams whilst hosting eurocup and nations cup at the same time just in TDM...

Any suggestions are welcome to boost this community and help avoid an actual end which imo is on the brink of taking place.

NEW QUAKE recommendations (9 comments)
Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 15:13 CDT, 17 May 2016 - iMsg
Time to write a new Quake

As a fan of the game with the experience of 13 years, I give expert analysis and 100% working recommendations, absolutely free.


We have long worked on Quake Live, we wrote a new good dueling maps. Period 2009-2016 = 7 years of work. 7 years should not be drop out !!!!!

WIN Formula:

New Quake = QuakeLive + NewGraphics + Innovations (+ SinglePleer).

QuakeLive:
-We need to take all the QuakeLive code and simply upgrade the graphics part to the modern level.
-All Dueling maps (in online tournaments) should save all that they have, diagram, proportions, dimensions, have 2-3 texturing variants (1 variant of the textures for the pro) like campgrounds and bloodrun in QuakeLive.


Now the main part:

Innovations = Innovations for PRO + Innovations for NOOBS.

Innovations for Noobs:

-Elo Rating (Glicko) should be everywhere and prevent novice sound the siren of a strong opponent. And do not give to play. Noobs needs less frustration. Moreover, the rating must be recognized by each duel map SEPARATELY. Just players with a high ELO should have the crown on the head in game, nick must be red and radiate
curvature of space and time.

-
-
-
-

Innovations for PRO:
-Server Must be 100 fps.
-Ability to increase ping on /cv sameping

UPDATE 19.05.2016
-Some duel maps must have super powerups, like Invisibility (duration 2 sec, player model fully invisible, spawns like quad 3-5 times during game), Silence - no any sound from player.
-Selectable spawns http://www.esreality.com/post/2811344/duel-selectable-spawns/ . But i think also about how players choose spawn points during their movement, like proximity mines setup( its Very tactical)
-Of course wall demolition.! You rocketJump and crash wall by your body!! Some animation required! =). Also you can make holes by rocket and hide inside!
-Rockets fly not only linear but also little right or left like some wind move it!
-3 jump states! Little higher, little lower, but faster


to be contunued,
I'll write more later

Changing fov from a different resolution (2 comments)
Posted by marissa @ 14:25 CDT, 16 May 2016 - iMsg
I just recently made several changes to my config settings and computer.

Well i moved from 1366x768 resolution, a non true 16:9 resolution to a true 1792x1008 resolution. I cant do 1920x1080 because my fps is not stable but 1792 it is stable.

However, i have had 103 fov and the enemy looks farther away since i changed my resolution. This would make sense i suppose. So im assuming that i need to change my cg_fov to more closely resemble what i had with my last resolution?

If so, is there a place or way i can calculate a similar FOV so i have the same feeling i had by factoring in the resolution change?

Easier to shaft up than down. (8 comments)
Posted by Lollo2 @ 07:56 CDT, 16 May 2016 - iMsg
Hi guys howcome it is easier to shaft up than down? If I stand on red armor on dm6 and my enemy is at plasmagun I usually stay in the duel. Also on Thurnderstruck if enemy goes up the stairs to the platform I usually hit better. Is it because shafting up gives more knockback?

I also have a question about plasma. I find it easy to hit with shaft/lg. But much more harder to hit with plasma. Do plasma(cells) have a minor hitbox than shaft rail rockets?

Hope you wanna discuss... Take care

F*CKMEGEDDON: A Xonotic Frag Movie (6 comments)

Rating: 7.4 (15 votes)


F*CKMEGEDDON is a 15min long Xonotic slideshow content of frags that I've been collecting ever since I started playing about six years ago. Some clips are old, some are new and some I can't even remember. I've got footage from various tournaments as well as public/pickup matches, featuring game modes such as Duel, DM, TDM, CTF, Vehicle CTF, Instagib and some weird modifications in between - against various opponents chosen indiscriminately by skill or reputation, rather by the coolness of the frag like in the old times. The result is a disorienting chaos filled with randomly modded announcer sounds and gun models determined by the server I was playing in. A ton of airshots, killing sprees, spawn killing, vortex whoring, mortar ricochets, curve rockets, flickshots and in general buttloads of Xonotic exclusive gimmicks. Little bit of everything! What can I say? I love this game and every (most) part of it.

This is an old movie project that's been collecting dust for a while. Quality is a bit below the standard and the fps is only at 30. This is because when I started this project I intended it as a youtube only release and back then standards weren't as high, let alone you couldn't even upload at 60fps yet. I promise my future videos will be at a solid 60fps and a decent resolution, assuming the game (that I'm working with) has avidemo features or that my toaster can handle fraps/bandicunt/camtasia/whatever type of recording that would be necessary due the absence of it.

Here is the schedule for the last matches.



Update: Europe nerds were sanctioned with a noshow against Czech Republic Virtual owners (insaccato preferred to go and play another match). They didn't agree with the admin decision and decided to drop from the league.

But I know I can get there with hard training and I want you guys to go along my journey. I Will also do my own personal tutorials on every map. There are good guides on all maps. But i do Think i got some unique insight to share. I have played this game since 2002 so i got much experience.

GHOSTING IN QL (4 comments)
Posted by Daniel2 @ 16:21 CDT, 13 May 2016 - iMsg
Interrestingly people can now ghost in QuakeLive as some already does in this totaly dead mod that once was fun, namely Trouble in Terrorist Town.

Ghosting consist of beeing in the server as a spec but not listed in the scoreboard so they are undetected. Server owners can do that and maybe other people with enough admin rights.

I don't see why on earth would the developers make this feature on purpose.

You can argue that if you have a couple of PC you could do same but you would be seen on the scoreboard at least.

So far i havn't seen anyone talking about this so here is a thread for it.

Note that i only slightly care because i play mainly FFA, but for duel and CA i can see the trouble.

Midair - A Tribes Spiritual Successor (10 comments)
Posted by AFireInAsa @ 12:52 CDT, 13 May 2016 - iMsg
Hi, I feel like this game could be of interest to the ESR community. If you don't know what Tribes is, it's a video game series that came out in 1998 with it's last installment in 2012 (Tribes: Ascend). Ascend wasn't received well by the hardcore Tribes crowd, so some players from the community who had previously worked on successful projects together decided to make their own Tribes-like called Midair.

Here's the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archetypestudios/midair

It's not some pipe dream fantasy Kickstarter game, it's playable and already awesome. I've been testing this game for months along with other core Tribes community members and here's a short gameplay frag film I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFj3ChJf9C4

If you like CTF (the main gametype), high-skill games, or jetpacks, check it out.

So I haven't been playing Quakelive for ~2years... I just wanted to check my account and noticed that quakelive.com redirects me to steam.

What is that?
Is my account gone?
Are the "clans" still there in which I was?
Do I still have my friends list?
Can I even expect any of my old buddies to be active?

Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 13:22 CDT, 11 May 2016 - iMsg
Like you already probably know, i bought overwatch yesterday, and i plan on playing it a lot when the game is finally released (24th of may).

I will be playing "soldier: 76" only because i went from lvl 1 to 22 in 3-4 days while playing this character only.

My best kill/death ratio with him was like 28 kills 4 deaths or something. I also did better than a lvl 60 player in 3 games. Then he left :>

Since my PC can handle overwatch ez (210+fps average depending on the maps), and since I'm not forced to play with a retarded circle crosshair, and I have the choice of using a large cyan cross and on top of that FOV 90 > all, everything is fine basically.

For all the haters saying thunderstruck is useless and not quake, I can tell you that all these years playing it made me a more than decent overwatch player after only 3-4 days of playing it.

I hope that I won't get bored by playing overwatch 24/7, if so I'll go play reflex and thunderstruck anyway, so it's ok

I won't play starcraft 2 multiplayer (even tho i finished all the 3 campaigns with the 3 races (terran, zerg, protoss), and it was a VERY enjoyable experience actually), because there is no way i can reach top player lvl even if i play it 24/7, i won't have the patience and dedication to do it, and all these years i've been playing much more FPS games than RTS games like starcraft or warcraft.
I'm 27 years old, I think it's pretty realistic to say that at that age you can't beat a nerdy 16 years old korean dude that plays the game from 8 to 12 hours/day for 3-4 years in professional conditions.

So yeah, I think the best option for me is to play overwatch from 1 to 4 hours almost everyday with my beloved hardstyle music radio (hardbase.fm) and then play with friends that have the game and are good at it too (preferably french players, because it's much easier to communicate in french in a game like ow imho), make a team and play hard go pro :D.

TL;DR OW will probably be my main game because I already ordered it and plan on playing it at release (24th of may) with the character "soldier: 76" only and also because I did very good in the open beta with this character annnnnd..... I can play with music which is awesome TL;DR

I've always enjoyed watching Cypher, av3k and agent due to their agressive style of play, endless rocket jumps and 360s as opposed to evil or k1llsen for example who seem rather clunky with their movement.

OVERWATCH BETA OVER ? (3 comments)

So, I preordered OW standard edition (40€) and it says that it will be available at the 24th of may. And it also says in my battle.net account that I have bought this product.

Played 2-3 games starting at around 20:45CEST and then the game stopped the auto-search for games. Then tried to relaunch the game and couldn't connect to the server.

So I guess it's over now ? Will have to wait until 24th of may to play it again ? :/

Some of the other players are also playing QL at the moment, such as cha0ticz I believe, however, it is nowhere near the competitive scene and as such a comeback could be in order. If Makaveli has made a comeback to the competitive scene and I missed it then he should be removed though :)

Best CPM player in the US a few years ago, he played in the CXG and did really good (he had to play cooller in the WB finals but the even was shut down iirc) then disappeared a few years later and his family came here searching for help.

Lost to cooller in the WB Semi final 2-1 (Won pro-q3dm6 if I recall correctly). Cooller then beat ZeRo4 in the WB Final 2-1 but the event was shut-down before the LB final between ZeRo4 and elp could be played (I think).

I think he was at QLAN2 as well.

the event was shut-down before the LB final between ZeRo4 and elp could be played (I think).
They started playing T4 and when the score was 8-8 between them as network died for good. The organizers didn't care anymore at that point but the players wanted to proceed, regardless of the cash (which was never payed out in the end). So they connected Zero4s computer directly to elpajuo, however, the organizers then proceeded to shut down all power as well, so there wasn't much for them to do.

Hence all three, cooller, z4 and elpajuo are considered tied as #1 for that event.

That's not how I remember it, I'm quite sure they all considered themselves as tied #1 and decided to split all money and hardware.

The final was to be between cooller and the winner of z4/elp (which was never finished). So how was z4 ranked ahead of elp? Regardless, you are mistaken, the official (and inofficial) results were as follows:

Duel Results:
1 - tied. Anton 'cooller' Singov (Moscow, Russia)
1 - tied. Alejandro 've-elpajuo' Gonzales (Venezuela)
1 - tied. John 'ZeRo4' Hill (San Diego, California)
4. Sean 'Daler' Price (Austin, Texas)
5 - tied. Paul 'czm' Nelson (Massachussetts)
5 - tied. Jared 'cha0tics' Cugno (Boston, Massachussets)
<< Comment #34 @ 06:25 CDT, 23 October 2009 >>

Because z4 was in the winner bracket final and elp was in the semi.

I recall them agreeing to share the money (whether it got paid or not) split 1. qlr 2. z4 3. elp.

But anyway, it doesn't really matter and there's next to no accurate coverage of cXg anywhere and the ESR search function is beyond hopeless.

Whenever I watched him move around, especially on DM6, he would do some things that seemed completely crazy or doomed to failure. They always seemed to pay off, though.

One time he did the standard bridge to rail and it seemed obvious he was going to miss. He managed to air-control himself over farther than seemed possible like it was nothing. Also he would regularly dive down onto players where it would seem they would shaft him to death before he hit ground but it never seemed to cause him any trouble.

I voted for PELE cus I remember watching his old demos and being in awe about his interesting style. Most people probably don't remember him. He played a lot like unkind, just years before unkind was in the scene. Really smart and killer rox.

I don't think there is enough $ out there to motivate most of these people back. When you get older and have more responsibilities, it is impossible to put in the time required to be a top tier quake player. You have to choose to either dedicate your time to a game that nobody follows or do something real with your life.

Most of them practice, they all just tell different degrees of lies about the time.

but i vote fatal1ty, cause fat returning to play would promote ql more than anything.

I would not call a year or two of inactivity, retirement. Even if it is technically retirement, as long as we've seen them not too much time ago, it's not enough to call it in a joy, the great return of the dark knight.
To be more specific, my daughter went down from our bed in the morning, and in the evening she was climbing it again, fully enthusiastic, I would not call what she was doing today, a truly retirement.
Same love story.

I don't really use that account (that was my 1st and only game) as I like to play in peace/quiet and have a good time. That's what happens when you get old... you like quiet, haha! Especially sometimes when I come home in the evening after a few drinks...

I could always play Counter-strike when I had some liquor, but quake, oh boy... all over the place with some alcohol, haha.

I need to get rid of this monitor though... 25 ms response time and only 72 Hz LCD.... hehe -- I don't know how much it is gimping me, but from what I've been told, it is pretty bad.

I am trying to get Unholy, immortal, and some of my other friends to start playing again though.

Major Poll: QL

"Quake live has brought quite a few players back to the scene. Which comeback to the Quake competitive scene would you rather see (as a player)?"

A Legend Returns
Once, long ago, a legend trod the earth, fragging opponents with ease and reigning as a good and wise champion.

Until, one day, he vanished into the mists of time.

On Tuesday, he returns.....and GGL.com will cover every step of his exciting comeback

Because they have been playing the same players and shithouse maps since the creation of the universe. However, I'll agree qw has superior fundamental gameplay and the top players would probably never switch to anything else. I just think it would be nice to see a guy of Reppies insane talents try something different.

Not sure if I want to see Reppie in QL. Everyone would just own him. He would have to completely change his setup and style of play.

I agree about maps though. dm2 and possibly dm4 should be removed from comps.

I would go as far as saying that players like dag aren't as talented as some of the top players in QL.

When QW was the game, when it had players like DOOMer, Sniket, oKKun, Lakerman, Kane and so on, dag played at that time as well (I don't know if reppie or def played at that time but if they did they were so poor they weren't even known in the slightest then). However, dag, or dagurra as he was known as then, didn't stand a chance against those players, he was even at a lower level of play than me.

When all good players leave from a dead community, some lesser player is bound to take the #1 spot.

That goes for most of those current QW "stars", such as pietro, locktar, riker, xalibur, mrlane and so on. I do not even think they would disagree with me.

By nihil madbringer  - Reply to #213
Dude, less talented? QW requires a different skillset altogether. Different strats, movement, weapons, it's hard to compare, even. Also, how can you know if the current "stars" of QW wouldn't catch up to the old masters even, if they did stay in the game?

I'd say, if they'd put in time and effort, some of them could become top contenders in QL.
<< Comment #217 @ 11:19 CDT, 29 October 2009 >>
By QW_ Zalon  - Reply to #213
I'm sorry, but that just doesn't make any sense. As much as I respect the oldschool players (They were the top when I started playing), they simply didn't play the same game as the game thats played today. Saying that Dag wasn't as good, because he peaked at a later stage in the games history - Is like saying that LakermaN was only good, because Thresh wasn't around anymore. But even back then the game had changed alot, from when Thresh was king to when LakermaN won TGI. LakermaN was part of the era where aim, speed, and the ability to do tricks became a major factor in the game, whereas the players from the previous era had relied much more on just tactics.

QuakeWorld have had numerous eras, and different kings for each era. Some have stayed on top throughout most of the game's lifespan, players like ParadokS, reppie, dag and griffin. And I'm sure players like that have/had the talent to be good in any game. Just like LakermaN showed, some people can just pick up a game and instantly be good.

Regarding the players you list as current "stars", only LocKtar and riker is around.

But I would agree, that most top qw players probably wouldn't do as good in QL, but thats more of an age/lack of time thing than it is talent. Also they would be lightyears behind the Quake3 players. If Nabbe had not been moved from the "Participating players" to the "Pending Players" list, for the QL tourney at DreamHack winter, we could have seen what a top qw player could do in QL - with limited practice.

There is nothing suggesting that Thresh was better than Lakerman, DOOMer or Sniket.

Did you watch 9 vs DR? I was there and watched it live and talked to the players. The first time EU and NA actually faced each other in QW/RQ, DR didn't do too well there (they even lost in their games vs IoP, another much less known medium-skilled Swedish team). Of course, while they were here Thresh also played 1v1s, losing games vs Xenon, DOOMer etc.

It's not like these current QW stars werent active at that point. Riker, mrlame, dagurra and so on played quite a bit yet wasn't even considered mediocre players in comparison to the likes of DOOMer or Lakerman.

I even played in the same team as Riker and mrlame, so I do know them as players more than most yet my opinion still holds true, they, just like me, werent as talented as players like Lakerman. It's simply easier to be amongst the best when the community size is 100 compared to 1 000 000, especially if you have a 10 year game advantage on all the new players.

You are ignoring the fact that most of the early star players in Quake were established Doom players. Doomer, Ettu, Lakerman, Thresh etc all played Doom multiplayer and came into Quake already holding a lot of FPS experience. It was no surprise they dominated early on. Just like in Q3 where all the early tournaments were won by veteran Q1 and Q2 players.

No offence dude, but you have no idea what you are talking about. Dag not being top notch when laker was playing doesn't prove anything. Different players have different motivations at different times. Pietro has been out of the scene for a looooong time. The players who have been at the top of the qw scene in recent years are very very skilled and would destroy laker at his previous form. There is no need to make comments when you clearly don't know anything about the subject.

Though there are lots of players that you could argue would have a place in such a poll, Kane is the one that comes closest to mine. However, no matter where you draw the line, the will be cases close to the line that can be argued.

Lets see, you claim half of the players didn't place top3 in a duel tournament. I'll just mention one tournament for those I remember. To be fair, I'll only mention lan tournaments.

czm: 24% (79)
#1 QIL4

Fatal1ty: 18% (60)
#1 XSReality Invitational

toxjq: 17% (56)
#1 Dreamhack winter 2005

LakermaN: 3.3% (11)
#1 Lan Arena 4

Stelam: 3.3% (11)
#1 Lan Arena 5

ZeRo4: 1.8% (6)
#1 QuakeCon 2001

Polosatiy: 1.8% (6)
#1 AMD PG Challenge 2003

PELE: 1.8% (6)
#1 RazerCPL Qualifier

Blue: 1.5% (5)
#1 CPL Asia

socrates: 1.5% (5)
#1 WCG USA 2002

DOOMer: 1.5% (5)
#1 Swedish Quake Championships

elpajuo: 1.2% (4)
#1 Cyber X-Games

Makaveli: 0.9% (3)
#2 XSReality Invitational

Sujoy: 0.9% (3)
#3 Ground Zero

cha0ticz: 0.6% (2)
Can't remember any

Blokey: 0.3% (1)
#1 XSReality AMD Cup (this was a duel tournament but not alone though).

Daler: 0.3% (1)
#1 ION Games
As you can see, your claim that "half those players never placed top3 in a duel tournament", was entirely inaccurate. Almost all of them have won at least one LAN tournament.

I voted stelam because i remember him firstly as being a great TDM player. Same for toxjq. And same for prozac. Same for makaveli because he is my first demo watched, a tdm demo on DM6 before the pro version, he was camping at RA and looking up.

And so on, i would like to see all those players come back for some great TDM with a lot of teams fighting to be n°1.

The Genie says, "you have three wishes". Aladdin tells the Genie his first wish, "I wish for unlimited wishes.". Robin Williams tells Aladdin, "Well that kind of defeats the purpose of only having three wishes, but what can I do? Rules is rules.".

I always liked CZM, Toxic and Lexer myself. If I had my way, they would all come back.

Outside of the usual suspects I would like to see (not just from Q3):

Polos, Blokey, Lakerman, Aim, Q50, Slinger & Stelam (surely they're a double team super combo?), Panicore, Prozac, Appleseed, IF22 anyone? and just cos I love him, Timber.

If he thinks that this is the right way. Don't think he'll replace his millions from poker with a dirty old railgun :P

Fatal1ty ofc.

But I highly doubt that he would perform a comeback in a broken game and a watered down version of one of his favourite games, which lacks the ability to spawn LAN servers. By now he already must have realised that there's no future for a game as incomplete and undeveloped like QL.

And what else is there for people wanting fast gameplay and compete in 1on1 tourneys? Right, nothink!
