Epic Games Will Provide $100,000,000 for Fortnite Esports (20 comments)
Posted by son1dow @ 11:44 CDT, 21 May 2018 - iMsg
Fortnite Competitors!

Grab your gear, drop in and start training. Since the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale we’ve watched the passion for community competition grow and can’t wait to empower you to battle with the best.

In the 2018 - 2019 season, Epic Games will provide $100,000,000 to fund prize pools for Fortnite competitions. We’re getting behind competitive play in a big way, but our approach will be different - we plan to be more inclusive, and focused on the joy of playing and watching the game.

Stay tuned for more details about competitive structures and eligible platforms in the weeks ahead!

The original VR Quake experience (2 comments)
Posted by dondeq2 @ 11:13 CDT, 18 May 2018 - iMsg


Most of us gamers have heard about the Quake experience in VR on the Oculus Rift. Here is my latest Quake gaming history video [23 minutes length] about the less well known, very first Quake experience in virtual reality.

CAVE QUAKE II is an adaptation of the popular PC game Quake 2 for the CAVE, the world’s first immersive virtual reality platform! The demo by Paul Rajlich is fully playable in single player and multiplayer deathmatch, and shows how compelling a game becomes with life-sized stereo graphics!

Thank you to the ESReality community for the feedback and encouragement on these Quake gaming history videos. In a meta sense, I entered my own Fear Cave on this one, and narrated. Joseph Campbell has been ascribed to have said, "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."

Enjoy your trip inside Cave Quake II!

I just bought cheap Deathadder Chroma, and it seems to be fake (hardware looks just as regular one, but synapse does not recognize it).

So my problem now is how to change dpi?

I cannot return it, so I wanna ask you guys is there any way to change dpi, if not I guess I can put my old deathadder 3g sensor in it which is already set to 450dpi.

Advice is welcome.

Haven't played in 2018.

What map / mod is this?! (3 comments)
Posted by dondeq2 @ 16:37 CDT, 14 May 2018 - iMsg
https://m.imgur.com/gallery/w9f3L

Here are all the clues I have...

The screenshots are credited to 1998, from a United Recammers video by The Immortal, made for Dukemedia / QuakeTV.

Dukemedia was partnered with Sega Gameworks at the time making the tech for e-sports competitions at local gaming clubs. Was this part of a competition mod?

In the video, the players are fighting for a single flag, which generates on the lower level, and then it’s taken and carried to the upper platforms, presumably to score points.

The level is later shown configured differently, apparently for deathmatch, with a rocket launcher and 2 rocket ammo packs on the platform where the flag had regenerated.

The players are never shown with a weapon less than shotgun, maybe that’s the default weapon in this mod. The players have to collect ammo and weapons. When killed, the weapon you are carrying is left on the map to be picked up.

The advertisements! In this level there are in-game, professional looking ads for Activision, Creative Labs, Logitech, Skittles, Mountain Dew, ID Software.

At a LAN party in Rochester, in 2015, the original server admin for Lasermine CTF put this map on for us and it was fun to play. Unfortunately, only the one smoking MASSIVE amounts of MJ (me) has any memory whatsoever of this.

What I DO remember, hazily, is that this may have been part of a larger download, or included in a pak file. The level itself MAY have a generic name (for an example, but not a serious guess, I would give a common name like “base” and say maybe it was overwritten by a later map named base, and that’s why nobody remembers this now.)

The Olympics theme and Vince M commentary used in The Immortal’s recam seem to point to the competitive nature of the mod / map in question.

How could I almost forget... the Scoreboard! This mod / map has a unique in-level dynamic scoreboard that shows all players in the map the Team Score and Game Time. If this was an episode of Antiques Roadshow, the working in-level scoreboard would be pointed out as being a unique feature adding a lot of value to this piece.

Just about the only Quake 2 mod I have seen with an in-level dynamic scoreboard is the Kick Mod. This is more complex than that.

The advertisements for FX Sports (started in 1997) and Casio Time point towards the year 1998 being an accurate date. The presence of so many company logos makes me think this was an official mod release, maybe from one of the expansion discs.

The Scoreboard would be perfect for Spectators, adding weight to the theory that this map / mod was built for e-sports competition.

I really want to move on with my life but I have a touch of the OCD and it bothers me that this piece of Quake gaming history may be left by the wayside. On another level (figuratively but NOT literally - i’m still talking about the same level) I want to play these ramps with the laser hook and my friend Mary Jane.

Any and all info, clues, context, guesses, random comments, would be greatly appreciated.

Webtools for quake admins (2 comments)
Posted by Danmer @ 10:43 CDT, 14 May 2018 - iMsg
I'd like to share some of my webtools which might be useful for quake admins.

Seed Master
The first one was made a year ago for seeding a ton of new participants of 125FPS cups. Fast and easy search using any symbols in PlusForward Rankings. Import, automatic sorting by rating and export to challonge.com within seconds. It's still used.

http://quakelife.ru/tools/seed-master/




Discord Formatter
Today I released a new tool which helps to write announcements and reports on Discord. The tool can:
- fix nickname using aliases and PlusForward Rankings
- add flags
- add discord tags
- add frequently used icons
- add stream links and casters using short names
- insert the last video link from a twitch channel
- wrap links to hide previews
- counter of symbols (to avoid 2000 symbols limit)
- save and load messages as templates

It's been over 6 months since the last elite level Quake Champions LAN tournament has played and prayers have finally been answered in Dreamhack Tours, the first stop in 2018 QC Saga. Attending are such names as United States of America DaHanG, Ukraine Xron and Australia Dandaking who will join a superstar roster of Quake players and have co-incidentally spoken to us about next weekend in France France. We sat down with the players to breakdown what competing at the top level has been like thus far and how they feel competing in the new priority team mode 2vs2 TDM. We have also gone to the effort of putting up some Points betting for this event to spice up the competition.

what is the ultimate origin of the universe before big bang? (135 comments)
Posted by i001 @ 14:25 CDT, 11 May 2018 - iMsg
god/consciousness/oneness? do you think it still exists as a backbone of our reality?

i think the word god is often misunderstood and can be described in this analogy about blind men and an elephant and everyone has different ideas what elephant is because they can't see the whole elephant and argue because their experience is based on their own interpretation of what an elephant is.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_men_and_an_elephant

i have this overall theory of god as underlying dimensionless timeless state from which everything comes including all the dimensions and possible multi-verses. meaning there is one single origin from which everything comes like vacuum that serves as space in which objects appear. i don't think god is either good or bad but rather as origin of universe and everything that is including laws of physics, space-time etc.

if you are atheist please relax, my version of god doesn't condemn you to eternal hell as i don't believe hell or heaven to be the ultimate reality of god and origin of universe etc.

"Theism is broadly defined as the belief in the existence of the Supreme Being or deities."

i don't believe in deity or dietes or that god is anything like a thinking human with super-intelect etc. for me the word god represents "source of everything" and is not some judge that judges peoples actions and requires sacrifice or adorship etc.


and to calm some blind believers that science is the end all be all of what is and isn't here is a nice article that describes all the ways in which science is manipulated by governments and corporations throughout history

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politicization_of_science

my purpose is not to incite religious wars but rather understand what god is through discussion as it helps me understand and question my false beliefs or mistakes to zero as i have no clue what's on my mind about this topic until i start discussing it here with you.

i am basically "science meets god" kind of person and i stand for scientific or at least logical explanation of what is god.

found this video on unified field theory that might be actually close to this concept of god and universe as one unified thing

It has recently come to my attention that there was a lan tourney soon. I've been doing my homework and watching twitch streams for a few days now. This game looks AMAZING and I know that I can do well in this tourney. Problem is, I don't have the game yet and since I just found out about the tournament, I haven't been able to find the cash to travel to the lan either (l don't even know when it is tbh). BUT, I KNOW that if I can get the game soon, I can put in the practice and gain the experience needed to take down some of the top teams. Below is a link to my gofundme. I would add a link to my twitch chan but I don't have a pc that can stream (i'll be adding a forum thread for that request for a handout later).

Edit: I just realized that this was a 2v2 tournament and I don't have a partner. I've increased the gofundme goal to include a copy of the game and travel for my future partner.

For those who dont know yet. The dutch player d0gb0ne died by a heart attack way too early on tuesday.
As far as I know, he was in his middle 30s and for those who didnt know him, he was a fucking nice guy.

He was also the owner of the legendary european clan arena server "Amsterdamage 4on4 1600+", which some of you probably know.

Im sure the server will be shut down sooner or later.
I already talked to some of the usual players on his server and one will probably host a replacement, which will be called "d0gb0nes 1600+" or sth like that to hold up his legacy.


Dog, I hope you rest in peace.

Festiveturtle and I are Turtle Recall. Both of us are experienced Quake Players. We have been working hard and performing well against the top 2v2 teams in NA. The tournament was announced with a month to go and we were unable to gather enough money for all of our expenses. Even though it's a little late, turtle and I will try to get to Tours. We are definitely capable of taking down any of the other teams based on our results. We both hope you consider donating to us so we can compete against the best in the world. :)

Hello everyone, I recently needed to buy a monitor, but my friend said that among the features of the monitor you should consult before purchasing it, one feature that should always be focused on is the aspect ratio of the monitor, as it will indicate the geometry of the monitor. . So, monitor aspect ratio, which one should I choose for my monitor?

New Keyboard - Zowie Celeritas 1 and 2 (2 comments)
Posted by roymagic @ 15:36 CDT, 30 April 2018 - iMsg
Some days ago, I started to notice something feels strange.
Movement in quake really felt weired and I noticed people were hitting unusual high shaft on me.

Finally I figured out my keyboard seems broken. Sometimes it doubles or triples my commands which leads to let me run or strafe straight into one direction for 1-2 secs which I dont like and fucks up my complete movement in shooter games and especially in quake.

I have an Zowie Celeritas 1 and tbh I cant really remember when I bought it. Maybe around 6 - 8 years ago? I cant tell exactly anymore.

So my first question is, is it "normal" these mechanical keyboards are done after this amount of time? I cant really remember if I ever broke a keyboard by just playing before.

Because I always was statisfied with my Celeritas 1, I decided to go for the Celeritas 2.
According to Amazon I will receive it on Thursday.
What I saw is, that zowie is using infrared technology instead of the mx-cherry technology.
Anyone here has some experience with it?

I will give you an update about it, as soon I played some on it.

Survey on pings over the pacific and intercontinental gaming (48 comments)
Posted by Åke Vader @ 02:28 CDT, 27 April 2018 - iMsg
There is a survey going on in an attempt to narrow the ping gap between regions that could benefit from servers in the pacific. This may make it possible to have sub 100ms gaming between places such as the US West, East Coast Australia and New Zealand which would probably be of great value to communities like QuakeWorld, CPMA and Quake Live etc.
"I am trying to gauge some interest on whether a gaming service that bridged the pacific ocean and allowed for sub 100ms gaming between East Coast Australia, New Zealand and West Coast USA would be viable. In the future it could be expanded to include Japan, Guam and Polynesian Islands. West Coast USA based players would achieve around ~50ms ping with Central states being higher.
The setup of such a service would require physical servers to be hosted in a Hawaiian Datacenter, Internet connectivity with multiple ISP's (to ensure direct routing to each country) and this would come at a considerable cost.

The initial goal would be to have permanent servers for games which would benefit the most with the expansion of their player base such as the Quake series and its derivatives.

The end goal would be to allow game developers could also rent service space to give their games a permanent server in this unique location and in addition to permanent servers, a service would be offered where tournament admins could rent server time on a temporary basis for other popular games in order for players to compete in specific tournaments or events with a larger player base spanning the Pacific."
Head on over to the survey

https://quake.bethesda.net/en/news/5neso2wc6sYIIyMkwY0ikA

GREETINGS CHAMPIONS,

We’ll be deploying an update on 26.04.2018 that includes the new duo Champion: Strogg & Peeker, a new map Awoken, a new Super Nailgun vanity weapon: the Disruptor, and many quality of life improvements. We estimate the update process will take from 7AM EDT – 2PM EDT (11AM GMT to 6PM GMT).

CONTENT

NEW CHAMPION: STROGG & PEEKER

Ability Drone Strike: Strogg enters a camouflaged state and deploys his drone. He assumes control of the drone, which can fly around and shoot at players using its Hyperblaster. Using the ability again causes the drone to accelerate forward and detonate upon collision.

Passive Stroyent Cell: Gather Stroyent capsules from your corpses of his enemies that heal his wounds.

NEW MAP: AWOKEN

In the vine-choked valleys beyond Zar’s templed terraces, a monument to the Queen of Ciphers looms over what remains of the Temple of Forgetting.

Available in all modes with the exception of Sacrifice!

NEW VANITY WEAPON: DISRUPTOR

The QUAKE 3 Plasma Gun returns, upgrading your standard issue Super Nailgun with plasma nails that rapidly consume its energy… and your enemies.

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.

Why would z4 be ahead of elpajuo when they only played one map which ended 8-8?

By Sweden Paladia  - Reply to #27
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 >>
By clawo ini  - Reply to #33
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.

I think he finished second at Qlan2 (cpm tournament).
Rat won, elpa 2nd, toxter third and snapcase fourth I think.

He played in the vq3 tournament also, but didn't do as well compared to the cpm one :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

CZM is awessome!! But i would like to see a Fatal1ty comeback to shut people's mouth that say he isn't good anymore... But it would be funny if he comebacked and get owned xD

Fatal1ty will comeback rather sooner than later, and yep he will get owned most likely.
<< Comment #226 @ 06:05 CDT, 30 October 2009 >>

I disagree.

I think if fatal1ty does decide to come back officially he will make sure that he can hold his own among the top players in practice games before doing it.
And I think we can all agree that he is not the type of players who is worse in tournaments than in his practise games.

i'm oficially impressed. Just checked his stats on ql and he is owning on ffa... He said on an interview @ gamescon that he likes to play a lot of ffa to prepair his aim for a tournament, but he might be playing just for fun, I don't know... And you are right, Fatal1ty isn't stupid that's why he reached his status....

Crrrrrrrrrrrrrrazyman!

But honestly, i'd love to see them all come back. The more the merrier. :)

Those and many more, especially people who managed to embed themselves in my memory, like Rocketboy, Kane, Paradoks, Gollum, Python, Matrox, Roos, Death, Arrw, Shub, w3st.. the list goes on.

i still remember his demos from LanArena. :D

Duel wise I don't think he has placed top3 in any tournament.

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.

You can also vote on the "Someone else" option for such players though.

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

uNkind: 12% (41)
#1 WCG 2002

LeXeR: 4.8% (16)
#1 QuakeCon 2002

Thresh: 3.6% (12)
#1 Red Annihilation

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.

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!
