Why Clan Arena is so popular? (62 comments)
Posted by dZen @ 18:32 BST, 29 September 2014 - iMsg
As my main focus is at PQL this really bothers me because all I can find is PQL CA servers, not any TDM or CTF.

I dislike CA a lot but that is only way I can play PQL.
Sometimes I host CTF with PQL settings but all the VQL players join there, veto some shitty maps, most games go way too easy or way too hard since these VQL people do not like to shuffle for some reason.

If you play CA tell me why?
And if you enjoy CTF/TDM or duel with PQL ruleset please let me know so we can become friends. :))))))))))))

SPAWN CHOOSING discussion thread (10 comments)
Posted by Asp @ 00:23 BST, 29 September 2014 - iMsg
Random spawns fuck up games all the time when a player gets a free kill. I believe this is self-explanatory. What if players chose their spawn point after dying?

CONS:
-noobs dont know em.
-Players will spawn at the objective best spawn on the map (ex: on top of red on aero if red is up and they know timing), altering gameplay.
-No hal9000 spawnkill streaks
-Tactic of relocating position to eliminate certain spawns on certain maps is gone (although spawn selection could still be limited with choosing)

PROS:
-Being able to delay items when needed now has a greater reward. Previously it was perhaps unlikely that player would (example) spawn on red. Now it is almost guaranteed, so frag timing and item management are (on average) tested more strongly.
-Fragging player now thinks "where would I want to spawn?" and can attempt to predict choice. Fragged player may need to be unpredictable. Adds a new thing to mindgame
-Game knowledge/observation is rewarded. Ex: Fragged player observed/deduced fragging player is low on LG ammo. Fragging player may have opportunity to select LG spawn and start a mid-range fight.
-Greater importance placed on fragged player to know item times out of control
-If multiple spawns are about even in desirability, players can choose one closer to their favorite weapon or one that suits their style.
-NO FREE KILLS LIKE THAT SPAWN ON CURE OR THOSE LOST WORLD TIMES
-CUTS DOWN ON RANDOMIZATION

Now there is still the matter of game start. Not sure how to deal with this, it could still be random or there could be some sort of pick system. Let me know what you guys think. Do not tell me this topic has been done before I will not like it

So I tested both keel and tankjr... (37 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 19:28 BST, 28 September 2014 - iMsg
as enemy model. And I came up with the conclusion that Tankjr + lodbias 2 + playerLean 0 is better than keel lodbias -2.
Why ?

I hit at a non moving target, at the sides of the model, and also a tiny bit above the head/feet of the model, and what happens is that when you hit at keel's side, it's counted as a hit even if you don't "touch" the character model.
Basically tankjr + lodbias 2 fits a bit more the current hitbox than keel. Like I said, there are holes at the sides of keel, as well as above his head. And surprisingly enough, tankjr model doesn't exceed the hitbox actually :O, except for 1 of his arm, which is obviously not a big deal.
And with playerLean 0, he basically never goes out of the hitbox while moving (fast).

After all these years I thought that keel fitted the hitbox better than tank, but apparently I was wrong... BUT, if you use tankjr, ensure that playerLean is set to 0, and also lodbias to 2.

tl;dr tankjr lodbias 2 playerLean 0 > keel lodbias -2

Hacker game mode coming? (38 comments)
Posted by Memento_Mori @ 11:38 BST, 28 September 2014 - iMsg
Rumors say, the following game mode is being tested and may be added to the game.

The goal is to make the game more friendly to newbies and give them some features they are used to find in other games, but the hope is that older players will like it too.

---=== The Hacker Mode ===---

The game plays like classic FFA.

One player is randomly selected as the 'hacker', and he will be given wallhack, humanized auto-aim, timer hack, etc which he will use at his discretion. Nobody knows who the hacker is except for the hacker himself.

The game mode has a hidden points system, which at the end of the match are revealed, converted to frags (1 point - 5 frags), and added to the score to determine the actual winner. A player has to decide how much focus to put on the traditional making frags, and how much on making points. So in a way, the classic mode is still there.

Points are made via accusation votes: at any point in time, any player can call a vote to accuse somebody to be the hacker. Unlike normal votes, these expire after 5 seconds and require a minimum of 3 participants to be valid.


As you can see, the mode gives newbies the chance to get exposed to advanced concepts such as gathering consensus on witch hunts, successfully hiding cheats, etc. which according to data collected, is one aspect where newbies struggles most when trying Quake Live for the first time.

My hardcore Quaker soul cringes a bit seeing our game to move in these new directions, but I realize evolution is the only hope to keep our beloved game alive, and therefore I welcome this news with mild skepticism and the hope that it's for the best.

what plastic is the wmo shell made of? (5 comments)
Posted by KittenIgnition @ 05:02 BST, 28 September 2014 - iMsg
I finally switched from my Deathadder to my WMO recently, wanting to try three new things at once: my new mousepad, my old-ish WMO that someone from ESR gave me for free (totally awesome!), and low sensitivity. For the past few years, I've been using super high sens (6cm/360 in Q3), which means wrist-only movement, and it's pretty unhealthy. Not only that, but I've gotten really angry at just how bad my aim/accuracy is. I was hoping to get at least a bit better by lowering my sens and all that.

Anyway, I figured it would be cool to draw something on the shell; some little piece of line art or w/e. What I would like to know is what plastic the WMO's top shell is made of, and if this is even possible to do without ruining the mouse. Is there such a dye that will not rub off with sweat and consistent use?

P.S. I'm a terrible artist a friend of mine will be doing the actual art. A very good artist friend. One who knows how to hold a pen.

500hz vs 1000hz Again =[ (17 comments)
Posted by cha0tic90 @ 02:54 BST, 28 September 2014 - iMsg
I have tried spraying at the wall in practice matches in cs go. Oddly I find getting prefect spray patterns is easier with 500hz but 1000hz is smoother. I have a zowie fk1 so the hz is perfectly stable so that is not an issue. I get perfect spray patterns with 500hz almost every time but with 1000hz even though I feel I am making the right movements the pattern doesn't turn out correctly. Basically I want to know if this is in my head or if 500hz polling is actually more consistent and whether or not others have experienced this? Also I am use to 1000hz polling not 500hz so it is not that I am more use to 500hz because I am more use to 1000hz.

I no longer have issues with 1000hz vs 500hz. It was some weird issue with a USB port. It was stable on mouse tests but something was happening that was messing with the mouse movement. Somehow it handled the issue better with 500hz.

Final result: It turned out to be a setting in my bios that is commonly used for overclocking that was a default setting on my motherboard. It is called CPU load line calibration. It was causing my USB ports to not work correctly.

Need mousepad for 125Hz polling (5 comments)
Posted by memph1s_ @ 21:54 BST, 27 September 2014 - iMsg
I am using a legit WMO on a old but moderately clean QcK+ SK edition. Although it's fine in other games, i am a low sensitivity player in CS:GO and the issue i'm facing is that i tend to hit the negative accel or even make the mouse malfunction.

I have tried using a higher sensitivity the past few weeks but it hasn't worked out for me, though I am still trying. I have the mouse on 125Hz because I go to LANs and changing the polling rate is usually not possible, so I've left it at 125Hz at home too.

I want to know if a different mousepad will help, so please help me find the best possible mousepad for the WMO sensor. Anything even a bit better than the QcK will do since the issue only happens at very few (but important) points.

Thanks

Quake live len event (16 comments)
Posted by LordSoth79 @ 20:26 BST, 27 September 2014 - iMsg
Hello to all the Quake lovers out there, both the old school players and the new people just starting out on this totally awesome game called Quake.

I have been watching Zlive on twitch for a while now and have seen players asking&talking about getting more Quake live at lan events. So i started talking about having a Quake Live community get together at insomnia lan event and i have people all ready wanting to go, But i would love to get even more players interested in going and making it a much bigger event so multiplay would i hope support a much bigger tournament for players.


I have all ready been talking to someone at multiplay about getting something going for Quake Live. So far the feed back from them is positive and they have said about doing something for quake. The more people that are up for turning up and playing the better so if you would like to go then reply here or mail me at qllanevent@yahoo.co.uk and lets start getting quake back at lan events and having fun.

I also have an open teamspeak 3 server for anyone wishing to use it. Quake live channels are in there setup and ready to go so feel free to use it if you wish.

That is the ip.

TDM - Classic (question for the EU pugs) (19 comments)
Posted by flair @ 18:29 BST, 27 September 2014 - iMsg
Greets. For the small group of us in North America that play TDM (real TDM) still on #NATDM.QL I have a question for the European TDM players. As I am sure you have all noticed to make the game mode work correctly you have to do quite a bit more than just click classic. Infact ... it requires a TON of cvars to be changed


Do you all also change machine gun damage back to 4? It was 4 dmg in TDM before 2.0. We already change starting ammo from 50 to 100, but I just noticed the other day that MG is REALLY strong in tdm and its because the previous damage of 4 is now 5. Do you change this? Could someone who spawns EU TDM pickups or official games please post your cvars for me? Thanks

PS: ID this sucks. Can you please just change it so we can select classic TDM and be done with it:? thanks.

Instant switch vs delayed switch (79 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 19:23 BST, 26 September 2014 - iMsg
Aircontrol had a big debate, so let's do one for switch time


why, why does everyone here automatically think delayed is better and more tactical?

"you get punished for not switching in time, duh"
same thing happens with instant switch, duh

"it's a hard skill to be perfect at"
how come old pros had it down pat and rarely made mistakes.
they had 1/10th the playtime of modern pros and they had no issues with it. usually, when pros make a mistake nowadays it's because theyre strafe jumping around, stumble onto the other player, and end up being late with their switch.
you rarely ever see pros make mistakes when they're melee fighting

delayed switch isnt some deep skill like fanboys want you to believe and using instant switch wouldn't ruin anything.

instant switch automatically makes tdm better because it puts a bigger price on power weapons(that's a fact, jack).

instaswitch also opens the game up to more possibilities. Imagine what cypher would be capable of if he played cpma instead of ql

I dont care who he is if he is the best player in the world i really dont because what hes doing is not right - he has become in less than 5 days ranked #1 in CTF http://www.qlranks.com/ctf/player/Rhllor , now he tries to do this in other team modes as well, this is very unsporty behaviour because if you look at his profile at his games he almost NEVER played a whole game, he always joins a game waits and make sure he joins the winning team (and hes doing a great job with 100% of wins), so he plays like for 2-5mins most of the games..he is basically abusing all games he joins..just check his profile and game details (mostly ctf) for the last week, I wasnt able to find one ctf game that he played full time (most of them are from 30secs to 5mins)..its not normal..

http://clyp.it/xw3fi5uv

So why in the fuck ID didn't contact the guy in order to not absolutely ruin a fundalmental part of the game's aesthetics? I can't focus anymore when I hear vegeta saying "immmpressive" in a ridiculous manner. When you used to get an impressive or an excellent with the old voice you got that adrenaline rush, that extra motivation, same for when the countdown ended and you heard "FIGHT", and same for "you lost the lead" or "you have taken the lead". The voice reflected these feelings better. Now with this, all I get is a cringeworthy whenever I hear this fucker.

I even got some newbs without Q3 as reference to play QL, and they said the announcer guy sounded a bit stupid (some played UT tho). Then I showed them some Q3/QL videos and they said "much better".
A cold blooded arena demands for a low tone, distorted, computerised voice. The new voice is way too fucking human sounding. Too bad id has no aesthetic sensitivity to notice all these objective facts in order to avoid ruining the game with these details (for me this is not even a detail, it's a fundamental pillar of the game).

So what are you waiting for, SyncError? what are you waiting for to contact Xian and fix this fucking mess for once? And don't try to sell me the "original announcer DLC" or some shit because that's just insulting.

I would understand if you add a "blood and gore DLC" to avoid being rated M, so only that DLC gets rated M which is pretty clever (even tho it still sucks and the ideal would be to have it ON by default, but anyway ...)

Another thing i've noticed A LOT is how every single person I show a videofrag to, gets dissapointed with the visuals of the game, because videofrags nowadays use high resolution textures, custom effects, motion blur, gore and of course, the original announcer.
So what are you waiting for to improve the game in this basic department?

No human was controlling any aspect of it other than running the program itself. It wandered aimlessly around maps shooting random players.

also im pretty sure i got walled by devonp when i went to railspawn later in the match, lol.

the bot connects around mid way thru match. but i do get some sick air rockets that you guys might find entertaining to watch :)

how do you feel about clan arena and how it has devolved into a bunch of tier1 "i just started playing" players invading all the highest tier servers and getting pissed when asked to leave? clan arena ALMOST became something to get good at before steam launched, now it's just full of noobs walking around while the experienced players stomp on them and then get pissed at their retarded teammates. Honestly I don't understand the point in clan arena even existing if there is NO WAY for the skilled players to separate themselves from the absolute scrubs. WE ARE FORCED TO PLAY WITH THEM. Do you think id software will fix the tier system?

Does anyone want to start making servers password protected where all the common players will know but the noobs wont? As far as I can see, that's our best solution.

SyncError make new players stay! (54 comments)
Posted by eatSlugs @ 17:08 BST, 24 September 2014 - iMsg
first off: I really like to see quake servers be populated again, thanks to steam-release(won't debate here on loadouts etc).

I think what is important to motivate those new players to stay for more then 4-5 hours of playtime, is to build a newb-friendly community around them. don't know if it's possible with steam, but I remember when I started quake 3 in 1999, there was mplayer.com. you had a big lobby where all players meet, with icons next to their nickname(displaying ranks). the players could open their own rooms from the lobby, there were tournaments etc...

next important thing would be: offer them HATS! for example an own 'store' to individualize the visuals of quake: blood and gibs(rating would only get higher for THIS certain dlc), different weapon skins probably borrowed from differend quake incarnations, different anouncer voice, texture packs for maps(gothic, industrial etc..)
this would produce extra-profit to pay more dev's etc..

probably would be a good idea too, to have atleast 1 'classic' server online in EVERY game-mode to show new players that there is a 'step above' the servers with loadouts.

in the same time would be good to change the name of 'classic'-ruleset to 'competitive'. that way new players would understand why they get owned on those servers, not because it's classic=old=bad, but because it's competitive=more demanding.

just some thoughts and to all the hardcore-players, it won't affect you negatively because all the irc-pickups etc are still there and working, now we only have to take the chance to get as many new players to try 'competitive' quake ))

Air control vs no air control (177 comments)
Posted by skint @ 16:31 BST, 24 September 2014 - iMsg
Why is it that there's so many people that hate air control, some stating they won't touch games that have it?
Just wondering as when I read threads on here and there's also a couple of comments on the bigger gaming sites that have featured Reflex from players with this view. They never state why, just 'not if it has air control' kind of responses.
(most of the comments on other sites about reflex are generally posititve)

In the case of Quake I personally prefer the movement with air control (qw & cpm) due to all the tricks and freedom you have to move at speed. That's not to say I don't like the movement in q3/ql and the movement in q2 is superb, but i just prefer the air control.

What are the arguments for and against and why do you hate/love air control or no air control.

Warxon Alpha Released (71 comments)
Posted by extone @ 12:35 BST, 24 September 2014 - iMsg
Alpha version of Warxon game is released.

This is the first public release of Warxon and its purpose is to provide playable and complete version of game suitable for gameplay testing. Content of the game is temporary and mostly borrowed from such free games as Nexuiz classic, Open Arena and Xonotic.

Warxon Alpha is using latest version of Qfusion 3D GPL engine and has many features needed for competitive playing. Even though final release aims to replace most of the content with modern hi-quality assets, Alpha version is packed with highest quality free content available and should provide enjoyable experience while testing such an early version of game. Alpha release aims to be stable enough to be reliably used for online cups.

Hello,

Since there has been alot of talk about Reflex, which is something im looking forward to aswell, but havent seen much talk for upcoming game Toxikk, which will probably come out pretty soon (hopefully). Anyways, i just want to hear some of your thoughts about it, im personally rly looking forward to it, always wanted a game which is a real quake/UT Arena FPS and which can match other games in terms of Graphics.

Will toxikk be a good replacement for Quake or something that you would enjoy just as much?

Anyone else watching the Twitch Steamers (19 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 06:58 BST, 23 September 2014 - iMsg
It's pretty interesting watching these guys play.

A lot of them have decent aim and they prefer the rail. None of them seem to like the LG at all. About half of them played Quake 3 a long time ago it seems. All of them seem to be having a lot of fun, which is unsurprising. It's kind of fun to watch them play and get pissed off or excited. I spent a couple hrs today watching their streams and giving some advice or info. If you tell them about the health and armor stacks and what the various weapons damages are it seems to help them.

Anyway its real nice seeing a game I've played on and off for 15 years being enjoyed for the first time by some of these people. I forgot what it was like to experience the game for the first time. Of course, these guys are used to online FPS games where I think a lot of us we not back in 1999.

Reflex gameplay (69 comments)
Posted by obi @ 02:59 BST, 23 September 2014 - iMsg
A lot of people ask what will be different from CPMA, and the developers have said they are using CPMA as a base only and they expect things to change. Here's some random ideas:

- less air control (but more than Quake Live)

- "curved" rockets which maintain some kind of momentum after they are fired (something like this http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/games/curveball)

- have the railgun start charging after being equipped. it can be fired at any time but for less damage. full charge time would be equal to current delay between shots.

- infinite range on the lg, but with significant damage fall off

- grenades which explode after a certain amount of bounces (for example, on the third bounce)

- ability to shoot opponents rockets/projectiles. god this would own.

- cyclic teleporters, so if you chase an opponent through them you arrive at a different location

- decide duels by damage done, not counting damage absorbed by armour

(Yes I know a lot of these are probably retarded, whatever). Anyone got any ideas?

Why I left Quake Live from tier 4 (63 comments)
Posted by kjojo @ 23:32 BST, 21 September 2014 - iMsg
I love Quake series, and I wanted to love Quake Live, but I left after four months.

Here's why. Maybe it will serve somebody who has a hand in development.

There are two major issues I see. First, training enviroment is not provided. Second, cheaters are allowed.

For a game that touts itself as a game of skill, with huge skill span from noob to pro, it's absurd that players don't have training enviroment.

I can think of at least 15 types of training modules which would speed up my skill development. And I would enjoy to train them all, as I enjoy "training" with bots, concentrating on one part of my game, getting comfortable and then seeing how my training pays off in live matches. By the way, current option to play with bots is not training, it's best-alternative-to-none training.

Of course, not all QL players would train. But many of those who are serious about the game probably would.

I started as noob and during four months got to lower tier 4, with between 90 and 100 skill rating. I don't know if that's good or bad, but I know that if QL wants me to play in tier 4, with people who are multiple times better than me, I at least expect to be provided with training enviroment.

Without it, I am there just to provide frag counts to others.

There is no serious basketball or football team, no golf or tennis player, that just plays live games. They all train. QL is a game of wide skill span, and I expect that I can train it properly. I have other things to do in my life than to invest months on end or years getting wiped, without fair option to train, so that someday I'll maybe get to the enjoyable high playing level in QL.

On the other hand, what QL lacks in training enviroment it gives in cheaters.

As I see it, I give QL my passion and time, and for that QL rewards me with cheaters. Instead of enjoying conquering the game as hard as it is, I also have to think if there is a cheater on server, who takes shortcuts and undermines my effort.

There are people in this world who made satellites and shoot them to space to orbit around the earth. I don't think making QL cheat-proof is harder than rocket science. I think that there is a reason why QL is made in a way that it allows cheating. I don't care what that reason is, because whatever it is, I see it as "f*** you' to regular players.

Anyway, enough from me. As Jim Carrey said at the end of The Truman Show: "In case I don't see you... good afternoon, good evening, and good night".

the problem is, our host is not supporting SA players.

the new players are experiencing warp/lag/bad server connection

is that what ID wants ?

Why not pay the server for us with high quality?

We already hardly pay a quantity, making it higher for get quality will be risky..

Seriously, you win something with Steam, the players
But if i am new, i would be sad with this servers, is our fault or id fault ?

How to beat the QuakeLive cheats? (208 comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 20:47 BST, 21 September 2014 - iMsg
Main question is, what are the cheats out there, that are known? post them, NO links or specific names please, just what they do.

EDIT1: probably best to start at Comment #39 onwards, after the trolls.

Why post them?

I hear this a load about cheaters, yes or no, some true claims some false. Many lesser skilled starter noob's (not their fault not to know yet) just think that someone who hits a direct rocket is a cheat. But does not understanding the 100 dmg it delivers directly.

Some even think fov, or increasing sound levels is a cheat. So there are different terms for cheating. But overall hacking of anything other than "non-standard game tweaks", is not good.

How to overcome this?

ID has done a good thing.
"Intentionally or not", the introduction of timers to items, and the dmg plums, are actually eliminating the power of the cheaters, or making it harder for them. So good job tbh ID.

I touched on this on another thread, but with ID not able to stop modernisation of the hacking / cheating community, so why not eliminate it by adding some of them as feature of some sort.

Prevention is better than cure.
Punkbuster does obviously not work properly enough. So what are the cheats?

The more we know about what cheats to look out for the better the game can actually be. And be more cheat proof. Only the Aimbot stuff will be hardest to look out for, but then ID have that capability to eradicate most.

With the

Wallhack for e.g.



"If you can't beat them, join them!" In this case, if you can't eliminate them, integrate it so that everyone is on an even keel. result :)

feedback welcome

Anyone know of anything like wolfcam/wolf whispere/ quakelive demo tools, that actually work properly seeming as firstly the demo file types have changed to .dm90 and the fact that it is now mainly on steam (I don't think this would affect anything to do with demos)

So if anyone has any info on any upcoming, or already released demo tools for the new dm90 demo type it would be very helpful.

Feel free to discuss other things about demo tools as well I guess :P

we need tourneys (5 comments)
Posted by issy @ 00:25 BST, 21 September 2014 - iMsg
hello friends, since we have a huge burst of new players, i'd suggest to make a couple of torneys even with new rule set, with a bit of prize money, for all of the gamemodes. Would be great to divide those tourneys by some skill level, so the new players can participate too. For example next weekend, advertise those tourneys everywhere here and on steam, so ppl could see that there is a competitive side of the game. Since there are no matchmaking, it will be hard for them to stick to the game for long enough, and this weekend tourneys can provide the reason. Meanwhile great guys like sponge and sync will think about matchmaking, or at least will implement directly in to the game elo based system made by great guy sirax and co. Because this little +10 -10 elo after the game, is a really great thing, and makes new and old players srtive to get better. Well first tourneys, then everything else. Its the last chance for guys at id to advertise your game and get new players, and make'em stick to it, so plz dont blow this chanse.

P.S. Sorry for crappy english, im from Potato.

As soon as i noticed him cheating, i went to irc and told sponge, SyncError and ( not sure how you spell it but) Saspirillo. Yet they were not intrested and i have even sent 2 emails to support.

The guy clearly uses wallhack. - i will edit the demos to where he OBVIOUSLY uses wh and upload to YouTube

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?

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 @ 12:25 BST, 23 October 2009 >>
By Imminent_Team iNkind  - 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.

Didn't you read the Dreamhack part? :) It's the second biggest QL tournament if you count how many good players that are participating. Unfortunately I don't think he has enough time to prepare properly for it but will be great to see him in action again.

Hm, no I didn't. When is Dreamhack? It would be nice to go there and photograph for ESR :)

Edit: I found it, starts on my birthday, if I read it right, 26th of November. It will be fun to watch :)

Edit 2: I'm checking traveling costs to see if I can do it, it would have been awesome :D Specially since in 2002 or 2003 I ended up not being able to go to QLAN :)

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.

Why should they waste time with a shitty, slow, hitscan cs game? Especially +forward Reppie with his 5cm/360 sensitivity. Waste of talent imo.

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.

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!
