Just want to say big thanks to Zero4 (4 comments)
Posted by adem @ 10:37 CDT, 17 August 2017 - iMsg
Well, that's gonna be some emotional shit, so leave it on if you don't care. Anyway.

I'd like to say big thanks to Zero4 and id software for their outstanding work on making everything even more shitter than it was. Agent won' come, it's fine. But now Cypher won't come for sure >.< How it's even possible one of the most skilled and famous Quake-player will not participate in the tourney of the life?

Well I didn't know if I want to watch that QWC, now I have a reason to forget that tourney at all. GL to Cooller and Rapha. It's gonna be easy for them.

Visa to the land of freedom was denied...

Cypher still will continue to keep playing Champions.

Manager of Virtus.Pro, his team, said it's not a biggie, they knew this could happen. There will be another participant playing for VP at this tournament.

Cypher will be casting game in studio instead.

VQ3/QL without the railgun (3 comments)
Posted by azxx @ 03:41 CDT, 17 August 2017 - iMsg
Could the VQ3/QL gameplay style work without the rail? Or is the rocket/rail/lightning trinity too holy?

Would removing the rail, but keeping everything else as it is (movement, other weapons, map design, etc), affect the game negatively? Would doing so 'break' something about how the game plays?

I am very keen on trying out how it would be. The maps don't have to be like Lost World or House of Decay, and the game doesn't have to play like QW or CPM. How would Blood Run and Furious Heights play out under VQ3/QL without the rail?

Would the combat be more interesting? Would it motivate players to make aggressive moves within their map strategies more often?

I can't see a change in the rail damage value to be interesting; anything besides heavy damage defeats the point of the rail's mechanics.
Making the recharge slower is better than changing damage, I think, but it still keeps the rail in the game and would probably only reduce the assistance from the rail, not eliminate it.

For a weapon that can be quite influential, it is very intuitive to use. It might be why it's use (and abuse) seems to be quite common on the low/medium levels of skill.

With such ease of use, I believe its ability to ruin tactical attempts is too high a cost. I am sure many of you have been in matches where you'd be out of control, spend minutes building up to a decent stack, then try to get to a favorable situation to fight the opponent....only to have the entire effort and build up be destroyed by the opponent hitting 2 rails or so and shutting down your possibility for a comeback. The opponent sat at a comfortable distance, barely dipping their toes into any combat, and ruined momentum you worked a lot for.

The momentum of the match going back and forth between players, contested at a satisfying pace, would add great value to the vibe of both playing and spectating. A player in the lead, in complete control, pacman-ing all items and having enough weapons, should still constantly feel the slow clawing of their losing opponent, in both the fights as well as the mental game.

Can someone with a deeper understanding and/or more experience shed some light here? Are there any obvious flaws that I am missing out? Personally, I'd like to see this happen in Diabotical, but I don't know what the end vision for that game is.
I would love to hear what 2GD and DDK think about this (and maybe even some pro players) but I doubt I can get their attention.

Help evil get a BYOC ticket (43 comments)
Posted by twitch- @ 20:45 CDT, 16 August 2017 - iMsg
Evil has been unable to get a BYOC ticket but has his flight & hotel organized. If anyone is interested in helping the man compete please contact myself or him directly. He is willing to offer cash to cover your ticket, transfer fee, and some extra cash out of sheer love

evil1988@bk.ru


Edit: We've had multiple people reach out and offer to let him 'borrow' a seat. While this is a kind gesture it does not comply with the tournaments rules.

If you are interested in selling your BYOC ticket than you are 100% totally surrendering it. It means that evil will become the owner of the ticket and only he can sit or play there. Unfortunately tournament staff has been non friendly in this regard, so if you transfer your ticket you are giving up your seat without the possibility of getting it back.

QC duel Tournament (5 comments)
Posted by CAREEM @ 20:24 CDT, 16 August 2017 - iMsg
Ive been thinking to make a tournament to win a new Zowie FK2. Yeah I know I was already talking about monthly tournament with prize money but negative reaction of ESR comminuty dismotivated me to spend any money for this. When I started streaming I was having weekly giving awayl 10€ or 20€ but that didnt help to get more followers or viewers. People just came for giveaway to claim funds so this time I was thinking to make a tournament for a mouse that I bought and is without any use. Mouse is worth 60€ + 1 or 2 years of warranty Im not sure about that. Lets see reaction and if I get an admin for this we can make this happen this weekend or next.

Please let me know and yeah I expect negative comments again as this is ESR community, but hopefully I will get some good respond to to motivate me and actually make tournament to win FK2. I think its still better than throwing away again on twitch giveaway which has no use.

Mouse review - recommended pick by Rocketjumpninja:

LG BK 2 7 DMG ? (42 comments)
Posted by gbmaster @ 09:08 CDT, 16 August 2017 - iMsg
Greetings,

now that Quake Live has been effectively shelved and (presumably) the purpose of reducing LG damage to 6 was to help newcomers integrate into the game by spamming rockets, could we have it back to 7 please?

It's especially annoying considering they've reverted it back to 7 in Champions!

Yours Sincerely,

ESPN: Can Quake make a comeback? (38 comments)
Posted by TUMULT @ 09:27 CDT, 15 August 2017 - iMsg
ESPN published an interesting article about our new lovely game. Does Quake Champions has place in esport today and in future? Will viewers want to watch a super fast battle between Dinosaur and a Robot over and over again? Is 1 million bucks in price money for just one single World Championships enough?

Here's the story:

http://www.espn.co.uk/esports/story/_/id/20345096/quake-champions-quake-make-comeback

Quake is distinct because no other game is as fast. It's the F-1 racing of the first-person shooter genre. ... We see a long, healthy road with this game, and we're taking this very seriously as an esport.
- Matt Charles, senior producer at id Software for Quake Champion

There are also mentions on such veterans as Makaveli and quotes coming from Rapha.

Comment below and let us know what do you think: Yes or No or Cooller?

Character preferences in QC (3 comments)
Posted by azxx @ 04:33 CDT, 15 August 2017 - iMsg
Does anyone here pick characters in QC based purely on liking the character? I am guessing most players would play the meta, which in theory would be the wiser choice.

After seeing changes to Clutch over time, and ID saying Clutch is not OP based on "their data", I am guessing we will see more such occurrences with regards to balancing in the future.

I think it is agreeable to not give in to early responses and giving the player base some time after a patch to see how they use/develop counters. Though at the same time going purely by data is not wise because there's a good chance it's not giving the full picture, and especially if the data does not make the distinction between trends/results amongst different skill classes.

I was wondering how viable not playing the meta would be, especially at the higher skill levels. I know it doesn't have to be either one of the two, and that players could mix preferences with meta choices.

This video kind of explains:



As we get closer to release, it will be interesting to see which style QC leans towards:

1) There are no hard counters, and character selection works somewhat as described in the video. Certain play elements/strategies may saturate and become 'rule of thumb' for a while, until a player does something new and finds success. This may happen less often but come across as more striking when it happens.

2) Everything revolves around the meta that changes based on patches, done intentionally or unintentionally, bringing some 'artificial' meta with short-lived strategies. This often remains under the guise of keeping the game fresh but can ultimately affect player success by a sort of trend of 'which characters do the devs like this season'.

I think QC will lean towards (1) just by the nature of the game. Although ID is capable of some absurdities, if Ubisoft got things right with Rainbow 6 Siege then maybe ID can too. Then again, R6 Siege started off with a good foundation in this regard, and isn't affected as much by fundamentals like health/armor levels.

Would be interesting to hear others' thoughts.

New Champion ideas (71 comments)
Posted by CAREEM @ 13:32 CDT, 11 August 2017 - iMsg
There will be ofcourse more champions and I came with an idea with new champion.

Champion:

Tank

It could be ORBB or LUCY

* Max armor 100 - max HP 125 - big hitbox (has to be tested)

* Speed medium

* Normal movement + wall jumps (as nyx)

* Ability: Fire bolt something as in Q2 BFG, when splash - radius very close about 10m distance. Ability should slow down your opponent fire rate and movement should be slower. That could be a good counter for smaller and fast champions as anarki and nyx.

What do you think? Do you have any other ideas for new champions?

This is a solo development project and I'm hoping that with successful funding I will be able to bring in a team to develop it into a release quality game.

It will be released via Steam, for Windows and Linux, and is being developed in Unreal Engine 4.

Another interview with Cypher from Mediamarkt Lan (1 comment)
Posted by casper_kk @ 00:36 CDT, 7 August 2017 - iMsg
Hi all, here is another translation of interview with Cypher taken at MediaMarkt LAN in Moscow.

The video with interview is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcKx4S5o45U



- Can you describe your impressions of the new Quake. What are differences, what's good and what's bad?

- Well, the game is very raw, lets start with this, so I wont be talking about the bad things yet. The good is - new champion system, abilities system, it brought some interesting new additions to the game, well, modernizing Quake to catch up with current games.

- How long do you play Quake?

- Well, I started with Quake 3 in the beginning, I was 10 or 11, my brother was Belarusian Quake Champion so I started to play looking at him. And i was inspired to win tournaments and to the age of 15 I played really hard and started playing professional at 16. Now I'm 27, so it's more than ten years already.

- It comes out that you're one of those guys who remember that most popular Quake that was massively played at computer clubs...

- Yeah, sure

- And you don't mind they trying to make hero-shooter of arena-shooter?

- If it makes Quake popular, I'm not against anything

- Which of the old mechanics are still in the game? Is the speed the same as it was, how are weapons feel?

- In that case they decided to unite all the dynamics and physics of all previous Quakes, so if you want, you can choose different characters with different physics, some faster, some slower, having more HP but less speed etc. Well they trying to balance the champions, so those aspects are all positive.

= What can you say about maps?

- We have two old maps and two new ones in duel, i hope that only new maps will be played and the old ones would be left in archive.

- Now the question about Virtus Pro. Tell your impressions, how did you come to the game, what are you expecting from your cooperation, what plans do you have?

- Well, new Quake was announced as well as 1 million dollar tournament in august at QuakeCon, the players and organisations new that already, but the official announcment was needed. I had conversations with american teams, they were first to contact me, then general manager of Virtus Pro and we both came to agreement that i need to sign them. So from that point I'm on positive wave. I was the member of many teams, and now I'm in VP and i see how people here are obsessed with it, very strong organisation, strong inside.

- If it's not a secret, why did you choose russian team over american?

- Well, maybe 5 years ago I would 100% choose some foreign organisation, but looking at things VP do, how they develop e-sports in CIS an in the world, I want to be part of it and develop the thing here in CIS, and not in America.

- What's your favorite hero now?

- I think Slash

- Blitz. Mega or Red Armor?

- Depends on hero.

- DM6 or ZTN3DM1?

- DM6

- Rocket or Rail?

- Rocket

Coollers reaction to the seedings etc (145 comments)
Posted by skint @ 16:27 CDT, 6 August 2017 - iMsg
Edit: ntE has translated more of what cooller has said in this comment and it makes more sense.

This is google translate so obviously not completely accurate but still. The guy who first brought this to my attention on Discord has since disappeared and his comments vanishing with him, I can only presume that someone got to him. RIP info guy

https://www.cybersport.ru/news/cooller-o-kval...se-delayut

Anton "Cooller" Xinggov criticized the organization of the European qualification for the Quake World Championship 2017 and reported on problems with the visa in the US for players from the CIS. Player Natus Vincere answered questions from ZERGTV after the match for entering the World Cup.

"I am very dissatisfied with [those], as they all do. And not even from the point of view of the organization, but in terms of how to be such a moron, to give 12 slots to the CIS and Europe. This is a complete game. Contempt.
I have a question: [why] is sitting there ZeRo4 ? A person knows perfectly well who plays where and where, nobody knows any nicknames, all the players-he himself played with them all.
But I talked to him and said: "Well, take it, make 16 slots, I do not know, 20 slots." He: "No, we are principled: it's a test tournament, now everything will remain the same as we announced, and nothing will change." How could I make such a grid so that I would play with Evil in the first round, Av3k played with StreNx in the first round? I have suspicions that this happened not randomly. That they deliberately do it. It should not be like this.
In general, I think that they should have made direct invites to some people. To call there, for example, Rapha , Cypher and a few more people. Me, maybe. We really, a pancake, we sweat on how much years already for their game, we do any ????. You could just take direct invites. And do not soar your brain to anyone. There Toxjq with AGENT play for the quota. Well, what is it? ".

About BYOC-Qualification on QuakeCon "Evil has a BYOC slot. Who is there for evil is sick, he will go BYOC to play, most likely. And there is a visa. [Slot] had to buy. Slot means that you come with your computer to this open area, you connect and play. Here he bought a place there. Naturally, I do not think that it will be direct his comp. He has some friends there who will just give him a play, and that's it. " On problems with visas for players from the CIS "It was Xron , Cypher , AGENT . For me personally, their trip to America is questionable, because they all have an open question with the visa. Even at Cypher. He tries to solve in every way and, naturally, Virtus.pro is trying to help him in every possible way. But it's not a fact that it will be solved. "

myztro reveals team (54 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 09:26 CDT, 6 August 2017 - iMsg

Newly established UK based esports organisation Myztro gaming has revealed their Quake Champions roster via a short but sweet YouTube video.

The Lineup Consists Of...
United Kingdom Gareth "Garpy" Marshall
Netherlands Sander "Voo" Kaasjager
United Kingdom Aaron "Hell" Jones
Portugal Gaspar "Hypno" Machado
United Kingdom Xavier 'Zoot' Dhorne

Myztro Gamings team manager, United Kingdom David "Zaccubus" Treacy, had this to say:
"You have no idea how happy and proud I am to be able to announce our Quake Champions Roster. We have some of the very best Arena Shooter talent, multiple world champions and arguably the best known voice in Quake, Zoot... Myself and the rest of the guys at Myztro Gaming have talked about possibly setting up an org for a very long time and with the recent resurgence of the Arena Shooters in esports, it was an oppertunity we could not let slide."

For the sake of competition, help Agent get to Quakecon (67 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 06:46 CDT, 6 August 2017 - iMsg
"According to Agent, he has a recently renewed passport, and he wrote to Syncerror and Zero4 repeatedly about an invitation, but got only one response quite recently from Zero4, asking for details what were already sent.

He didn't book an interview at the US embassy because he didn't know if he's going, and with current situation booking is almost impossible. So his only chance now is some help from ESL and/or id. Which is unlikely. To add to all of that, Agent's main source of income (sports betting) is quite unstable and can be a hurdle during the interview.

Also, side story of Agent and his LAN attendance (as told by him on his streams, with my opinions and if I'm remembering all that correctly). Some time around 2010-2011 he wanted to git gud at quake and win something. He was training constantly and already had some online and LAN top placements. So at some point he had a deal with M5 gaming organisation that they will support him going at Quakecon 2011. He got a foreign travel passport and was ready to go, placing a lot of effort in training. But less than month before the event M5 suddenly kicked him out, taking Cooller instead. M5 managers just said something like "Sorry, Cooller is a bigger name than you". That was the tilt moment for Agent, and he doesn't get anything e-sports related seriously since then. Also he says that all those rumours about him not having a foreign travel passport are untrue. Time checks out, btw, he could get a 5-year travel passport in 2011 and he could renew it with a 10-year travel passport in 2016 or 2017.

Some may dislike Agent, but there is unfortunately a big possibility that he will be unable to participate at Quakecon. He has quite a personality, he's objectively one of the top contender, he can be a great drama generator, and without him Quakecon will definitely be more dull, leaving us, viewers, at a loss."

agent playing regionals despite no visa (45 comments)
Posted by lasermaki @ 04:44 CDT, 5 August 2017 - iMsg
am i the only one thinking it's a bit iffy that agent competes today, despite not being able to attend qcon?

is there a ruling that his qcon slot (if he gets it) will get handed town to the next eligible player or something?

New Quake WR - sub12! (3 comments)
Posted by skint @ 13:16 CDT, 4 August 2017 - iMsg
Sweden Jukebox has set a new world record for Quake 1 speedrunning and smashing the old record by nearly 30 seconds, finishing in 11:57! This is the first time someone has ran a sub 12 minute run. Finland Elgu set the previous record nearly 2 years ago of 12:25 which itself was just 1 second faster than Finland Kukkye run a few months earlier.



https://www.speedrun.com/Quake

Edit: I made an error, never thought about if the previous record was by the same person as the current holder it wouldn't show that time on the leaderboards so Jukebox was in fact improving his own time from less than a year ago.

Graphics issue. (5 comments)
Posted by nutmeg @ 11:02 CDT, 3 August 2017 - iMsg
Hi.

I have an issue with my new build. It has a GTX1060 6GB card and when playing QL the FPS in the corner is not stable. It is cycling very extremely fast between 125 and 117. This is in contrast to my other system which has an iris pro 5200 (integrated graphics) where 125 is stable in the corner of the screen.

I am also getting a bit of shimmer with the 1060 when in spec mode moving side to side in the arena more so that the iris pro.

Any thoughts?

Another interview with Cooller from Mediamarkt Lan (7 comments)
Posted by casper_kk @ 11:01 CDT, 3 August 2017 - iMsg
You can watch it here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXhEqBWTJKM

- How did you get to NaVi, did you have any other variants?

- I got there as usual, by conversation with NaVi. I considered some proposals from different teams, wont name them now, many of them, but NaVi for me is the best choice not only because of their terms, thogh they were good, but because the team is closer to me.

- Cheering for them?

- Well I often coomunicate with the team from the time of their founding. Considering they repsresent CIS region, it suits me best.

- Did doreign teams also tried to contract you?

- Yeah, sure.

- Can you tell about Quake Champions, you impressions from the point of huge expirience. Whaat did they try to save, what new things they brought, what good and what not good yet?

- Well, i think that idea of creating variety of characters with dofferent abilities is 100% actual and promising. Duel mode will be one of the most popular, I think. I'm not pleased with development as a whole, because it's too slow. I have some expirience in gamedev, and I have some clue how that must be done, the speed of updates, upgrade of the game, and now im not seeing the level wich I would like to see. That's my only concern today.

- Any plusses?

- I said already - characters, duel mode, many severs, different settings which allow every player to set up their gaming profile individually, for me it's essential. The game is demanding enough for the hardware, you need to upgrade your rig, or you need to have a descent one already. Also i would like to admit that the game is free, it's not critical, but it's a definitely plus. Potential players dont need to spend a coin for the game, in comparison to Overwatch, which costs 2000 roubles, for CIS region its significant amount of money for players of lower age.

- Have you any favourite hero already?

- Well, I can't pick one, usually all the pros have some pool of heroes they prefer not in terms of "like" or "don't like", but how it technically suit thir style of play. My pool is Nyx, Ranger, Visor, Clutch, Scalebearer, that's all. I prefer characters with mechanics from standard Quake (means Q3), I don't like Anarki, Sorlag, which both use CPMA physics. But Clutch is not typical, i had to learn how to play him, because he's currntly actual. He is very strong, his ability and speed combined make him a top tier in comparison with others, so i have and I will to play him.

- It sounds like you dont want to play him.

- Well, at the start i didn't want to, I didn't like him. He is big, has huge hitbox, he catches every shot fired, do he recieves much damage, and it's hard to play when every shot hits you. But when he was fixed and boosted movement-wise, having fast charging shiekd ability which blocks incoming damage, after that he becamr pretty descent character.

- I got it. In the end three short questions. Mega or red Armor?

- It's situational, but i prefer armor.

- DM6 or ZTN?

- DM6 for now.

- Rocket or Rail?

- Rocket.

It seems that one from Xron, Luminus, Brejk and Demon will pass from the winner bracket, with just 2 wins (this is a huge chance for all of them... u hear me Demon? :P). At the same time, only one from Cooller, evil, strenx and av3k (group of death extreme edition) will pass, without visiting the loser bracket... what a draw...

Zowie by benQ mice and dpi steps (12 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 18:27 CDT, 2 August 2017 - iMsg
Ok, so, since all the latest zowie mice got the same sensor and same sensor implementation as well as the same dpi steps levels, and since the sensor is "raw" 3310 (one of the latest sensor ever released), I'm tempted to think and ask myself "what would be the perfect dpi step, in term of snappiness/responsiveness/accuracy/'low inputlag'?".

I heard many times already that the 3310 sensor and above (3360/3366 etc) doesn't have any "native" dpi step, which basically means that it will work the same at ANY dpi step. Not sure about "jitters" at very high dpi settings though (basically any values above 2000dpi).

The dpi steps are 400dpi, 800dpi, 1600dpi and finally 3200dpi.
From my own experience, 3200dpi with ultra high sens (1-3cm/360°) feels snappy enough without any "jitterness"; 400dpi with low sens (26cm/360°, sensitivity 4 ingame, basically the current cooller's sens settings) just feels right too, except that ofc compared to high sens it feels slower, not less responsive, just slower (which is 200% logical considering it's a low sens); 800dpi with medium sens (~20cm/360°), there again, the mouse just peforms as you would expect it to do, it's responsive, good feeling, no "jitter", everything seems fine; and finally my current settings 1600dpi sens 1.8 ingame (14.4cm/360°), the settings i feel most comfortable with.

So basically, I tried pretty much every settings but failed at finding even the slight difference(s) between all those settings in term of "input lag"/"smoothing"/"snappiness" etc.
When people said 3310 sensor just performs the same at any dpi step, I tend to think it's true, from, like I said, my own experience but also the multiple threads etc I found on the internet. However, I'm no god when it comes to technical stuffs regarding mice, ofc I know the basics and further, but that's all. And I'm still asking myself "if I didn't find any notable differences, is it because I'm unable and not sensitive enough to "feel" them, or is it because there are obviously no notable differences at all?".

One last thing that makes me have doubts, is that pretty much all the pro players (be it CS:GO or Overwatch or Quake) use either 400dpi or 800dpi. Is it simply because they feel they don't need more dpi and/or they are using low sensitivities, or is it because actually these 2 dpi steps work the best with any zowie mice, in comparison to 1600dpi and 3200dpi ?

I'm worried because I might actually use the wrong dpi step (1600) just because I might fail at finding any noticeable difference(s) between 400, 800 or 1600 (like I'm not sensitive enough).

TL;DR do all 3310 zowie mice perform the same at all dpi steps (400, 800, 1600, 3200), or is it better to use them (the mice) at either 400dpi or 800dpi, if you want best responsiveness/snappiness/accuracy/etc ? TL;DR

QuakeJS - Quake3 with CPMA mod ported to Javascript (25 comments)
Posted by aiken @ 10:00 CDT, 1 August 2017 - iMsg
No launcher. No web browser plug-in. Working Quake3: CPMA port to web based environment is up and running. Notes from the author:
QuakeJS is a port of ioquake3 to JavaScript with the help of Emscripten.
This project started to demonstrate the feasibility of browser-based gaming, and what better way than with a classic game whose core gameplay revolves around the kind of responsive APIs that are available with HTML5 today.

QWC EU & NA regionals live drawing today - patch on thursday (153 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 03:55 CDT, 1 August 2017 - iMsg
This info was given several days ago on the ESL Quake discord and was still not advertised.

Today at 18.00CEST there will be a livestream with United Kingdom Jake 'Mustard' Neal and United Kingdom Ryan 'Ketchup' Neal from the ESL Studio. They will be drawing the seeds and matchups to come for the Quake World Championships Regional Finals for both EU and NA

Quote :

A bracket draw for the EU and NA Regional Finals of the Quake World Championships will be streamed Tuesday, August 1st, at 18:00 CEST/9am PDT on twitch.tv/quakechampions.

The full list of teams and players can be found here: https://play.eslgaming.com/quake/global/quake...nship-2017

The bracket draw will happen in from the ESL UK studio and will be done by United Kingdom Ryan "Ketchup" Neal and United Kingdom Jake "Mustard" Neal.

Seeding pools will be based on time of qualification - duel players and sacrifice teams who qualified through the earlier online qualifiers will get a higher seed while players and teams who made it through later on will get a lower seed.


As a sidenote, it was speculated yesterday evening that there could be a patch this Thursday that should 'fix' the RL hit registration and bring changes to Clutch. See here what we could gather on the new incoming patch :

QuakeLive Duel TV. Sources (No comments)
Posted by sesen @ 02:22 CDT, 1 August 2017 - iMsg
Since, at the moment, I do not have the ability to support the automatic streaming project Quake Live, and given the increasing popularity of Quake Champions, I decided to post the source of the project.

What do I need to start?

For the server part you need a hosting/server with support for php and mysql. Expand the archive on the server, in the file qltv.php we configure the connection to the database.

The client part is unzipped in STEAM_DIR\steamapps\workshop\content\282440\

We open the file bundle.js in the editor, in lines # 51047 and # 51059 instead of http://YOUR_SERVER/qltv.php we register our server.

Running QL with the parameters +set fs_webpath .\..\..\workshop\content\282440\web +set com_hunkmegs "256" +set cg_followkiller "1"

A button "Stream" appears in the menu with servers. After clicking, the game itself will find the server with players who have the highest ELO. Then everything goes in automatic mode. The game will search for servers and switch between them.

Important. Every approximately 18 hours (depending on the computer) the game will hang. With this, unfortunately, there is nothing to be done.

Cooler's interview after winning MediaMarkt Cup yesterday (15 comments)
Posted by casper_kk @ 03:32 CDT, 30 July 2017 - iMsg
Hi all, I thought that maybe someone would be interested in this translation, because there was no English stream, and also no translation from Russian, so I did my best, hope you like it, sorry for mistakes, English is not my native language, I just learnt it from games, movies and books, lol :)

you can watch interview here https://www.twitch.tv/videos/162874053 (starts at 4:22:40)

Poloastiy (P) talks with Cooller (C) after final match which, unfortunately, was played BO1, because the mall where tournament took place was closing and they didn't have time to play full BO3 Grand Final.

P - Cooller, congratulations

C - Hi all again (he said hi already when commented Nitrino - evil match with base)

P - Well…

C - Well, what?

P - Congrats with another championship (shakes Cooller's hand). Agree that after first map of WB finals and first two rounds on ZTN, I don’t know…

C - A miracle happened! I don't know… (Polos indicates to look at webcam) Where?

P - Look at the webcam

C - (looks where he was told to) I said already, that match with Cypher in costs of my powers is comparable with that Qcon'11 match, when we played at finals and the game was super intense and I lost it, well now we played something like that in WB finals. The thing is, me and Cypher didn't meet each other on tournaments before (QC-wise, I think), and the game was first and it was matter of principle, as said "who has the longest…" (dick)

P - STAMINA!

C - So we both were sweating hardly just to prove everyone and ourselves, who is the best. Definitely, the game was close, agree? Cyphers skill is off scale, I was not bad too. Well, the main thing I got from this that both me and Cypher are trending now . It’s important for us - to understand that we can, that we are oldschool, but at the same time we are trendsetters.


P - Well, you are more oldschool…

C - I am that… how to say… that old guy with glasses modeller…

P - fazz?

C - No, modeller (laughs)

P - I don’t know…

*Cooller being congratulated and shakes hands*

P - I'm interested, what did you feel at ZTN after two lost rounds and Cypher typing GG in chat? You answered him something, right?

C - What to say… I had a thought "Hey, dude, don’t be too quick! I am in deep shit right now, but as they say "the chicken is in the nest"". And the chicken came out of nest and left an egg. You know when someone rubs his hands already and relaxes, usually it comes to Murphy's law, destiny plays bad tricks at him when he at the hair's width from victory, he thinks "I win", and it's a mistake. Well, technically I tried to play my game and at some point I've got second breath and I started to shoot well. You know, I had long breaks between games

P - Yeah

C - And I wasn’t in my shape in shooting, jumping, etc. Definitely, only at the end of ZTN I started to show my true skill… Any more questions?

P - I think no, it was very hard day

C - Also, taking this opportunity, I want to say… First, where all that smart asses who call me pensioner, an old man? That's first… well, and thatt's a second also.


P - Yeah, Anton. Well, really for me…

C - What about my reactions? I don’t know, I think when I will be fifty, I will be playing hard. I have some sort of mission - to prove some point to people. We have Zeus, who is 29 and plays really cool, we have virtus.pro CS team where everyone near their thirties and the are trendsetters. They not just playing on the same level with young guys, the are teaching them, show them how to play, like "Guys, if you use our play, work it somehow, some micro moments, you can get an advantage"

P - I remember first 125 FPS CUP, when you played Toxic and it was really…

C - Oh, yeah, want a joke? I am pensioner, but fuck, I get paid twenty fucking times more than some ordinary pensioner

P - Well, I think we can stop at this… Grats, it was a hard day..

C - Thank you, Polos. By the way, guys, huge respect to Polos, he was streaming this thing all day long SOLO for you!

P - Someone wrote in comments during finals "what a dull commentator"

C - I often watch streams, and that people who say shit to Polos, like he is bad commentator, call 4CE, or Shadich, guys, that’s not how things done… He works format he comfortable with, and he works for you first of all, so pay some respect for his hard work, please. It doesn’t matter how good he is, how he choses his words etc., just respect what you have, that’s all.

P - Yeah, thanks all…

C - Wish everyone happiness and health…

P - Prizepool of 300k rubles… Nitrino, say hi everybody

Nitrino - HI EVERYBODY! Sorry I wasn’t in frame for long

P - It was a hard day. *Cooller fills the screen with his jacket's NaVi logo* Anton… Well, I'm off, that was cool.

Quake Champions: How did we get here? (22 comments)
Posted by ika @ 19:44 CDT, 29 July 2017 - iMsg
This is an informative "documentary" video about what id software was doing in between 1999 and 2017 in regards to the quake franchise. Specifically with a focus on the design decisions made with Quake Live during its later (more recent) years. Most of what Id has been doing with Quake up until the announcement of Quake Champions has been "under the radar" unless you keep up with the scene, so this should explain how and why Quake Live failed.



All of the voices and editing are by me, but you can find out where everything else is from in the video description. =]

NaVI expands to Quake Champions - Signs Cooller (79 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 16:47 CDT, 29 July 2017 - iMsg
"Today we are pleased to inform all fans of Ukraine Natus Vincere G2A that the organization is set to expand into competitive Quake Champions. Natus Vincere G2A will from now on be represented by Russia Anton Singov, more commonly known as «Cooller», a legendary Quake player and a multiple-time international champion with over $ 300,000 prize money secured during his professional career.

Anton consistently performs at an exceptional level and is truly a professional at what he does. Besides Quake, he’s also had a solid showing in Overwatch, when he managed to win DreamHack Winter 2016 aboard of the International Europe Misfits roster.

The first challenge awaits Cooller very soon as he will be participating in MediaMarkt’s duel tournament which boasts a total prize pool of 300,000 RUB. The competition is slated to take place at Moscow's Aviapark mall."

Clutch and bethesdas weird decisions (69 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 10:29 CDT, 29 July 2017 - iMsg
So according to the latest patch log, the devs want to fix clutches shield so it doesnt let rockets through.

Why is clutch even in the game? Hes being picked in every tournament whenever it comes to the important stages, he's basically always the #1 pick, and theres a reason for it, hes a fucking fast tank.

Initially I thought that bethesda just take their time with balancing. And I liked that approach, for example companies like blizzard often patch too often and too drastic, which never really seems to work.

But fucking clutch is OP and I dont get why hes not being nerfed, it's boring to see him being picked exclusively in every important game. His ugly UT movement doesnt help, but my opinion about the dodge-movement may not be right, I just dont think it fits into Quake.

Anyway, watching the russians right now play all-clutch is just lame. But considering that I haven't read anythign about clutch here, I guess you guys all like robot dick :(

Audio problem (5 comments)
Posted by firosiro @ 08:25 CDT, 29 July 2017 - iMsg
Ok this is a bit hard to explain.

It sort of sounds like the audio code in this game has a 10 hz tickrate. You can notice this when quickly strafing left and right or by mashing +zoom. No matter how fast you do these, the sound effects are triggered at most 10 times per second.

This rule seems to apply to every object in the game and it sounds really stupid. Is there a way to fix this?

ZenAku's chance to represent Australia (29 comments)
Posted by mickzerofive @ 04:21 CDT, 29 July 2017 - iMsg
8 years ago Australia David 'ZenAku' Addati started his journey in Quake Live as a young, talented and exciting player to watch compete. Very quickly ZenAku was keeping up with the veteran players, who followed the series from Quake 3, with his exciting flick rails and impressive timing. Shortly after attending our first LAN tournament in 2010, ZenAku's lifestyle took him away from the game until his return early 2017 with the announcement of Quake Champions beta. Almost immediately ZenAku started putting together tutorial videos for new players in an attempt to help bring in new faces not only to our community but all international communities. Lately, he's also been streaming his games against the other Quakecon BYOC participants from Australia.

ZenAku now makes the 5th player of those going to compete in the Quakecon BYOC representing Australia's best, a long with previously mentioned Australia Astroboy, Australia Fraze, Australia Python and Australia Steej. Interviews and video content of all the players will be coming soon (stay tuned).

My WMOs look different to the original I had (4 comments)
Posted by LOLatRoflexTimers @ 17:10 CDT, 28 July 2017 - iMsg
Im still using the same WMO from the 4 batch I bought back then, but after I bought 4, I had one which broke. After I learned how there would never be a proper replacement, then I bought 4 at once to have hopefully lifetime suplply.

The first one, which had that grey tone to it in the base and was my first WMO, died years ago, then I got this 4 WMO batch from a chinese retailer. For some reason, the ones I bought are all black, the first one I had had the grey base:

http://cdn.overclock.net/a/ae/350x700px-LL-ae...64125.jpeg

Also notice that the wheel is grey.

The ones I bought in ebay, are all black, base is black, wheel is black, cable is black, it looks pretty sexy tbh with the reg light. Im just confused, why is this the case?

I remember asking this back then, and I think someone told me that the grey base ones are the ones that came with the original case, and the all black ones are the ones that are OEM in other words they ship without case. It's strange, because I never had any case for the WMO

Anyone can explain the difference in colors? from what I gathered, they are not chinese knockofs, they are real. Someone posted a guide of the different codes, and I remember that I concluded it was real, but I never got any explaination on the difference of colors

I can't believe how annoying display port is.

1) When I turn the monitor on, it turns itself off and on a couple of times, this happens randomly, sometimes it does it sometimes it doesn't.

2) Sometimes randomly (I think when Catalyst finds an update or something) it flickers off and on

3) When I turn the monitor off, THE FUCKING WINDOWS POSITIONS CHANGE AFTER I TURN IT ON

4) WHEN I TURN THE MONITOR OFF, THE FUCKING WINDOWS ICONS CHANGE POSITION WHEN I TURN IT ON

This is so fucking dumb, and from what i've gathered there's no fix? the fuck is this, fuck fuck fuck fuck, fucking technology.

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 :)

There's also the russian makaveli, don't know which one the poll is refering too. But the russian makaveli was really good.
-Edit- Looks like he is active again , and still pretty decent looking at his matches -> Rush3Dmakaveli

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.

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.

now that's odd. i suggest to watch some of the old demos which clearly show that sl1nger was one of (if not THE) the key players in unmatched's (or SK's) success. i always felt that neok was the "weakest" individual player in that team. all in all those guys were awesome together and seeing them again would be a pleasure. especially from a german perspective since we pretty much only have k1llsen nowadays.

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.

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.

Nice vid. I still have that demo :D

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
