The duel qualifiers for both PAX AMD Showcase and the Dreamhack Winter are now completed. Congratulations to both Australia Daniel 'Astroboy' De Sousa and Australia Tyler 'Steej' Joseph for doing the double back to back. There were some great games, some drama and plenty of emotion running high across the weekend.

Playlist for the PAX AMD Showcase qualifiers
My picks for games to watch are Fraze vs Steej in the DH quals and ZenAku vs Astroboy in the PAX AMD quals.

You can follow both our boys on twitter Steej and Astroboy. For the actual PAX AMD Showcase event i'll be mostly using instagram stories, heaps of discord and a bit of twitter. We will be trying to push out some interviews/content pre and post events. If you're keen to learn more about the players see here.

Nothing else to say, i've always liked the intellimouse design more than the wmo. come at me haters.

jiu jitsu jiurnal #0000001 - introduction (11 comments)
Posted by qmau @ 10:59 CDT, 16 October 2017 - iMsg
two weeks ago i started some jiu jitsu classes. this area isn't much for combat sports. there are a few MMA-type gyms here and there, but the culture and population is such that these places are small and unstable. the owner of the only BJJ gym in the area recently died of an aneurysm (i'm told his facebook profile was full of such touching eulogies as "he sure was an asshole, but his heart was in the right place"), and so a local traditional martial arts master (a fifth degree black belt in an obscure branch of kuk sool won) is attempting to use this unfortunate death to his strategic monetary advantage.

the instructor is a white belt in brazillian jiu jitsu, and he seems to be carrying over some of his instruction techniques from the TMA classes, such as requiring students to respond to his directives and statements with "sir!" it's a bit awkward for me, but part of my inspiration for joining the BJJ "program" (it's more like a club, right now) was to challenge myself physically and mentally; to see how my behavior, mind, and body, how i, can change by putting myself into uncomfortable situations.

there may be 6-8 people attending any given class. typically there are 1-2 women over the age of 50, 1 girl around the age of 16, 1 guy around the age of 45, maybe a couple of teenage boys, and me, 33 (34 at the end of this month). the class demographics aren't ideal for my own advancement. occasionally (maybe 1-2 times per week) a purple belt shows up with his college-aged son, but he sits quietly through drills and doesn't offer much input, while the instructor loudly and constantly proclaims his deference to the purple belt in all expressions of technique. it does not instill confidence in the learning process.

some cursory research showed me that basic jiu jitsu tuition runs around $80-$90/m for unlimited access to what is typically an MMA/BJJ-focused gym, which often includes lockers, showers, and 6 days of classes and "open mats" (where members of the gym can come in to spar freely with one another), so i was very surprised when the lady who manages this school, a TMA-focused school without even a water fountain, informed me that tuition would be $95/m for myself, plus $25/m for my son. a couple days later i informed her that my son would continue to attend, but that the class in its current state isn't worth $95, because the instructor is a white belt, there aren't comparable services to other schools, etc.

she countered with "yeah, but in this area?", which, rather than inspiring me to see it her way, instead showed me that the school was really trying to gouge me for as much as possible. i responded that i have other options, without elaborating on what those options are. there is a school less than an hour's drive away, and i have access to things like gracie academy (a web service that provides videos, discussion, etc. for learning BJJ), which, combined with a sparring/drilling partner, can be an effective approach to learning BJJ.

the next day she offered $95 for both my son and me, which i accepted. that's essentially $50 apiece, which seems like a fair price for what i consider to be an opportunity to spar with people of different body types and to be put into uncomfortable social situations.

it's important, when dealing with martial arts schools (when dealing with anybody, really), to maintain awareness and skepticism. the guys who run these schools are often hucksters, and sometimes even complete frauds. this particular guy is knowledgeable and capable with the TMA he has mastered, but, as with many people who have mastered something (high-skilled quake players come to mind), he seems to believe that his mastery translates into other martial arts. certainly his awareness will be more refined than most lay people, and he will have learned many lessons that a BJJ student will learn as he masters his particular art, but he does not have the requisite experience to demand the respect due to a seasoned instructor, and definitely does not deserve a tuition that exceeds many facilities lead by veterans of decades of BJJ work.

so in terms of my BJJ journey, that's where i am with attending a facility. there aren't any convenient alternatives, but i've managed to get an adequate deal for price. the instructor has an egotistical chip on his shoulder due to being a master in one art, but will hopefully settle down as he sees that, even as a knowledgeable white belt, he is lacking years of experience and practice to justify arrogance.

i've also got access to the gracie combatives video series, which so far seems like a great resource for learning techniques and how to drill them. my strategy right now is to watch the gracie combatives videos, drill them with my oldest son (he's still a lot smaller than me, so it's not ideal, but it's better than nothing), and then take what i've drilled to class and practice on other bodies there.

the class instruction feels much too varied and disparate. each day, 4 days per week, we are working on different techniques, but with no review the next day. i guess this may be some confirmation of my belief that the instructor isn't quite experienced enough for jiu jitsu instruction, because his hectic pace through the techniques displays his insensitivity to his students' progression. many of the people attending the classes struggle to keep up with the most basic movements, and still we plow through them, night after night. my guess is that most of the people attending will quit before 6 months (maybe even 3) due to the high demand required to keep up with others.

by working the gracie combatives fundamentals, i'm attempting to render myself capable at defensive positioning and escapes, rather than learning submissions, etc. one year i was in the blessed position to be able to quit my job and have no financial hardship whatsoever, but without my job i didn't have much direction or responsibility, and so i chose to dedicate myself to improving at quake live as much as possible. i was a 1400 elo dueler when i started, and ended my 2-3 month stint at somewhere between 1800-1900 elo. there are many reasons for this improvement, a big one being spending 1-4 hours per day practicing (often against many nightmare bots at high timescales in order to improve my timing, aim, reactions, angles, etc.), and another being my semi-structured focus on development. when i started this effort, my focus against higher elo players was simple:

stay alive

as i became better and better at staying alive, i began to focus on timing discipline, showing up for items, and the restraint necessary to refrain from grabbing an item just because i was there and it was time to do so. once my timing improved (though it was in no way adequate, and nowhere near good) i let myself open up a bit with spam. i became more familiar with the maps i was playing due to the amount of time i was spending in them, and i became more comfortable with the rhythm of duel and the quake live netcode, so that spamming grenades and rail became a habit that often resulted in a lot of free damage that was very frustrating for my opponents.

i believe this same path of development can be applied to jiu jitsu. i've read that the tendencies for white belts is to be spastic, and i can see how that's true. viewed from the perspective of people new to quake, it can be imagined as the new guy who doesn't know how to strafe jump just bouncing around without gaining speed, or maybe the guy who learned how to strafe jump but rushes mindlessly, without concern for items or keeping his visibility low to prevent giving away free damage.

by drilling the fundamentals offered by gracie combatives and then trying to work them in to sparring sessions with people close to my size i can learn to relax and focus on the task of staying alive in BJJ. against the other white belts it's pretty simple to stay alive, since they're mostly kids and older women, but against the purple belt, the instructor, and the purple belt's son, it's a lot more work, and i've found myself giving up too much ground through sloppiness and inattentiveness.

i'll see how it goes in class tonight.

one other thing i'll mention is that BJJ is a really great workout, especially for the "core" muscles and hips. some of the warm-ups we do really kicked my ass for the first couple of days, especially considering i have a pretty sedentary office job. i do a little bit of lifting and jogging, and i'm a very healthy weight for my height, but i didn't realize just how weak my hips were before BJJ sparring. it's also great cardio to be constantly fighting against somebody who is trying to control your movements.

so far i see that BJJ is a decent analog for quake. the "metagame" is constantly evolving, as the old becomes new, the new becomes old, and so on in perpetuity. i'm not concerned with what the BJJ guys call the "chess" aspect of it, though. my main concern right now is to work the fundamentals in order to build a habit of staying alive, so that, in the future, i can work myself into positions from where i can begin to exercise effective offense.

i highly recommend looking into BJJ for anybody who is interested in physical fitness and quake. there's a lot of similarity to love, and the same concept of mastery to become enamored with.

Help me get set up for my movie-making goals! (7 comments)
Posted by strenxismydaddy @ 15:06 CDT, 14 October 2017 - iMsg
wagwan.

I've made a few of these types of threads before but I keep pushing back the date until I move out of my parents and have a wired connection in my own flat so I can progress with Quake.

I the meantime, I bit the bullet and bought a MacBook Pro which is pretty fucking good actually. Obviously I can't play games and stuff but it's great and durable for work and data science which is what I want to get into.

However, I REALLLLY want to take up video editing (specifically, editing gaming movies) as a hobby. I am willing to spend a long long time learning the ropes and progressing up to one big quake cpm movie (already have a soundtrack in mind that I've been thinking about for years now and want to pass through beta testers, just need the frags and the editing prowess to progress).

A couple of questions

What specs would you recommend me to get to help with video editing and playing cpm and QL? (They're the only two game I'll be playing on PC). I'm thinking a desktop with 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD, i5 processor would suffice? As a desktop, this shouldn't come to to much money I think?

and

Are there any tutorials you think I should watch to learn how to make things like installing custom weapon skins like KOS did with dorftrottel (not aiming that high but those textures were pretty sweet)?

From the "Fingers" creating the universe to Cappadonna and Ghostface Killah, this is dondeQ2's "'97 Mentality," narrated by William Shatner. And we may be suffering from a '97 mentality but we have to say it anyway: this is the best Quake 2 RailwarZ CTF frag movie... maybe of 2017 so far, maybe ever.

Thoughts on the Razer Basilisk and similar mice? (21 comments)
Posted by /dev/null @ 15:27 CDT, 11 October 2017 - iMsg
Quake player since qtest here. I've gone through many different input devices, starting with the old Logitech Trackman Marble Wheel, then to the 1.1a, mx518, g400, and now my current g400s (2nd revision). I've *always* used the right mouse button for jump in FPS games. Once FPS games started having 'aim down sights' as a standard function, I started using the mouse browser forward (mouse5) button for the ADS/zoom function in newer games.

I'm interested in the Basilisk because it has the "clutch" which can be bound to basically do ADS/zoom like I am used to using mouse5 for currently, but have never had a desire to own anything made by Razer.

Just wanted to get some thoughts about this mouse here before taking the plunge and ordering it. I'll never use the default "sniper" function for it as I stick with one sensitivity 99% of the time, besides when I turn up the dpi on my mouse for quicker turning in vehicles that lower sensitivity in some games, like Battlefield.

The placement of this "clutch" seems much more accessible than the mouse5 button I've been using for years, so that's whats drawing me towards buying this one. I know there are other mice that have a similar sniper button, but I don't know of any currently that are any better than the Basilisk. Any thoughts on these other mice that have a similar button and if/why they would be a better purchase than the Basilisk?

Seems the Basilisk has the same sensor in the deathadder elite, if that helps. I like the adjustable resistance mousewheel too, as I use that for item pickup/use in some games to avoid spamming a keyboard key.

Thanks to anyone who took their time to read this and respond. <3

How to improve VAC by helping out (11 comments)
Posted by Yakumo @ 03:54 CDT, 10 October 2017 - iMsg
A long time ago Predath0r and I both tried to look at how to submit cheat software to the VAC team as end users, the FAQ's directed us to PM staff on a Valve forum for which we had to link steam accounts for access and the process was completely broken, we tried to inform Valve about it and got nowhere in months.

I just checked into this again for the first time in long while and they have actually done something about it at some point since I last looked. The old forum used seems to have been finally retired and their FAQ has changed the instructions so anyone can contribute easily now, I wanted any current players to be aware:

How do I report a new cheat?
If you know of a new cheat, especially private cheats (ones that aren't on a public website), and can provide the links or the actual binaries, please send an email with pertinent information to the following email address:
vacreview@valvesoftware.com
All emails are read and reviewed by the VAC development team.
source

I can't state enough do not install anything you come across to 'test them out', if they are in fact already in the detection system you would be caught and banned, and even if they're not now you could leave traces that get you banned later on, submitting an unopened file and deleting it would be safe though.

Helping server admins and qlstats.net deactivation will always be the quickest way to deal with bad users, but at least now maybe the VAC coverage might also be improved too.
Best wishes and happy Quaking.

Why 2005 was better... (71 comments)
Posted by Fizzle @ 10:07 CDT, 4 October 2017 - iMsg
The early 2000's are truly the best times to play videos games and be alive in my opinion.

Why?
Well let me list some of the games popular back then =]

Video Games

Quake 3 & CPMA (And loads of good mods)
Quake 2
Quake 1
Counter Strike (and a shit load more good half life mods)
Team Fortress Classic
ET:CW
Arena FPS games being the standard run of events back in the day

The night life
Weed was in a higher abundance.
Cocaine... more pure... cheaper...
I had more friends back then we all played games, went out got drunk, got into fights and blacked out! in that same exact order every damn weekend... sometimes in reverse =]<o~~~

Internet

Internet was more pure back then... forums and all that good shit... ESR was more alive... active postings and all kinds of good people... before esports turned into a meme... before it turned into pussy MOBA games... before everything was a MEME
Women
An early 2000s lady... oooo weee
is it or did ladies have some class back then?
i have yet to find me a girl to replace the lady im running with back then

Depression
Maybe from all these years of hitting the blunt and liffing life on 80mph in the BIG PL you feel me mane?? the depression has finally settled in

I feel like things truly went out the window after 2010. I have been holding out for things to get better but im losing hope.. well thats just the way i feel. quake champions hit me the worst. what the fuck are they doing to our game /rant

stay strong ESR fam. ill always be here. when you needs me most =]

Translation of mail.ru's interview with Na'Vi Cooller (47 comments)
Posted by Nukm @ 14:11 CDT, 1 October 2017 - iMsg
World's best Quake player shared his impressions about the game and offered some ideas about improving tournament process and gameplay. Russia Anton "Cooller" Singov - one of the most decorated and strongest Quake players in the world. In recently released Quake Champions Singov has already won several tournaments and made it to Top 3 in recent QuakeCon. We took an interview with Anton during "Moscow Championship" where he took 1st place.

What has been the best match of your career?

Cooller: Hmm (thoughtful). That wasn't Quake, it was Overwatch. DreamHack Winter 2016, one year ago. I was in the team Misfits and we won the final vs FNATIC. Back then emotions overwhelmed me, that was unforgettable. A huge event in my career. Before that I wasn't winning anything for quite some time.

TimConLAN 4 Results & Summary (2 comments)
Posted by CrazyAl @ 19:06 CDT, 27 September 2017 - iMsg
TimCon 4 has been and gone. Once again, around twenty of Arena FPS' worst and dimmest met in the storied English city of United Kingdom Liverpool, at the ever ostentatious Horizon E-Sport Club. TimCon’s third edition was such a success, we agreed little should be changed. The atmosphere remained. The thrills and spills came in similar quantity, the heartbreak and glory unchanged. There was however one major addition: DOOMBRINGER.



Over three days, four duel tournaments were played. First to return was warsow Warsow. It would bring all attendees great pleasure to say the story had changed, but alas United Kingdom STINKLIKESOCK did indeed dominate. If anything it was more one-sided this go around, as he cruised to his third TimCon gold without dropping a single map.

The new and controversially seeded kid on the block, DOOMBRINGER, shared a similar fate. New to most, the veterans of the game stood tall. Scotland CrazyAl would fall in the finals to Mr. TimCon himself, STINKLIKESOCK. The game’s creator, Sweden Kristus, took fourth.



Waves were made in Reflex. Widget making legend, United Kingdom Qualx, dropped in groups despite being the only man to take a map from the eventual champion. As was expected with the aforementioned upset, STINKLIKESOCK and United Kingdom xijjiik met in the finals. While the games were hard fought and nail-bitingly close, it was a 3-0 that crowned STINKLIKESOCK for a fifth time.

qlQuake Live, the most competitive tournament of the weekend, was the only obstacle left. It was nineteen vs one. United Kingdom nerVzzz, United Kingdom Lord Jellington and United Kingdom Lup1n had to defend the room’s honour from the monster it had spawned. Defend it, they did. STINKLIKESOCK settled for an unprecedented third place, his worst placement in any TimCon tournament. nerVzzz, familiar to the grand finals, sadly became a little more familiar with second place as Lup1n took the final decisively.

Lup1n took home his first place prize



...and didn’t make too much of a tit of himself popping the champagne.


The four tournaments had concluded, but the stench of bad blood lingered. At TimCon 3, the grudge match to end all grudge matches had us on the edge of our seats. At TimCon 4 scores had to be settled. United Kingdom JamboSlice, reigning Horizon staff champ met his old rival, Stephen, also known as a soon to be validated United Kingdom Messiah Complex. Having practised to the point of serious arthritis, Ste slaughtered his opponent without remorse to end TimCon 4. JamboSlice hasn’t been seen since.

Big thanks to Jamie, Ste and the rest of Horizon staff for putting up with our Quake player needs, to United Kingdom Gilanguar for providing a much improved stream and to our international friends Finland ollir and Sweden Kristus for traveling so far to be with us.

All mouse sensors should be on the right hand side (23 comments)
Posted by yoyoman @ 09:07 CDT, 27 September 2017 - iMsg
I have discovered all mouse sensors should be on the right hand side because we can aim further to the left with our wrist than to the right and the only reasonable solution to have it equal is to have sensors on the right hand side so that the rotation of right mouse movement is activated earlier allowing further xhair distance on the right side. The way we have sensors placed now limits our ability to effectively use a lower sensitvity setup as our left aim movement has more wrist distance than our right aim movement.

What we love and hate about Quake Champions (47 comments)
Posted by cumrag @ 18:11 CDT, 25 September 2017 - iMsg
One month ago, Quake Champions entered Early Access on Steam and Bethesda's platform. Right after launch, id ran the Quake World Championships at QuakeCon, a debut tournament. James and Evan share their thoughts on the somewhat unusual return of the FPS classic.

Some quotes:
Evan: James, my feelings for Quake Champions are complex and contradictory.

johann jensson: Do you mean ambient light? I agree.

Gonzo: does it have the BFG yet? if not its not quake yet

MadmanEpic: Honestly, I just think that UT4 is the better revival.

It is with tremendous pain that I inform you that Doom community pillar and Quakecon veteran United States of America Aaron "DemonSphere" Emge passed away early on the morning of September 24th, 2017.

Aaron was a legend in the Doom community and he will be sorely missed. Many here know he was also a gifted Quake and Quake Champions player

Aaron recently placed in the Quakecon DOOM 2v2 with fellow UniDoom member United States of America Wartorn. I had the chance to meet him at Quakecon 2013 for the 20th anniversary Doom II tournament; where he whooped my ass, made me a better player, and a better person.

Love you Aaron
Rest In Peace my Friend

UPDATE: Aaron's death has officially been ruled accidental.

Fastest glide on a mousepad? (7 comments)
Posted by Br0nze @ 13:32 CDT, 24 September 2017 - iMsg
Just out of morbid curiosity I was wondering if I could get people's recommendations on the fastest mouse pad they've experienced. As someone who prefers speed over 'control' I've always been enticed towards a mousepad that feels like an air hockey table. The fastest I've touched so far is a Roccat Alumic and a Shidenkai Mid, along with using Func Liquid on the prior. Besides that, I've only used one improvised glasspad behind those two that sounded like nails on chalkboard over Mumble (not that I really care). Let me know, thanks!!

DH Denver qualifications results ? (83 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 13:16 CDT, 24 September 2017 - iMsg
Hey. It's kind of weird that there is absolutely no coverage of the Duel and Sacrifice qualifiers for the DreamHack Denver on ESReality but whatever.

I know Cypher, k1llsen, noctis and syndrom qualified for Europe in Duel and dooi, Sane, ScizR and griffin qualified for NA.

I've seen the results for the sacrifice where apparently in Europe Stacked, Wait4Us and WinRAR Salesmen were the top 3 teams, but what was their roster ?

Also, I saw Spart1e play with WinRAR Salesmen, so, what happenned to Alliance ? Did they didband or was just Spart1e taking the place of someone else, etc.

ESR must deliver !

Vo0 on QuakeCon, Quake Champions and and being a pro at 32 (69 comments)

Vo0 on his runner-up finish at QuakeCon, Quake Champions and being a pro at 32

QuakeCon 2017’s annual duel championship saw the return to competition for many of Quake’s past greats. Of all the veterans, however, the one whose ID shone the brightest throughout the main event was Sander “Vo0” Kaasjager’s, the runner-up whose only losses came at the hand of the 19-years old Belarusian phenom and an eventual champion, clawz. At the age of 32, regular people may think of cutting back on gaming, both as a recreational and and a competitive activity, due to either real life obligations or other interests. Vo0 isn’t one of those people. For him -- the best Painkiller player in the world, back in the distant 2004 and 2005 -- the release of Quake Champions and the increased prize pools presented a perfect opportunity to get back into the active side of competition and once again feel the thrills of high-stakes on-stage play.

Several weeks after his second place finish, we had the opportunity to catch up with him and ask some questions regarding QuakeCon, Quake Champions and what does being a professional gamer at 32 mean for one’s life.

You can read the interview on Inven Global, but here's a short excerpt.

In the two European qualifiers, you actually got to play several players from the CIS region's second tier whom we get to see only online, most of the time. How did they compare to the players you got to meet in the group stage and the earlier rounds of the playoffs at QuakeCon?

I did play a lot against some CIS players, and they are quite good. Comparing online results to LAN results is challenging, however, because some people are more comfortable at home than they are at an event. My group consisted of whaz, Steej and clawz. Whaz was at least as good as these CIS players, but I think Steej had some trouble adapting to my style. He did not handle my Anarki well on Corrupted Keep and Sorlag on Blood Run too well. The Australian scene is quite small compared to the European scene so we get to play many more playstyles.

In general, I think the scene in Europe is incredibly competitive. I predicted that the EU Regional qualifier would probably be tougher than the actual event itself, which is (for me anyway) kind of what happened.

If you want to keep tabs on all my future content you can do so by following me on twitter at @RadoNonfire. Hope you enjoy and feel welcome to let me know your thoughts on the interview!

Moscow Cybersport Championship (4 comments)
Posted by iavoal @ 03:00 CDT, 24 September 2017 - iMsg
For those of us who missed it (as i did aswell).

Moscow Cybersport Championship took place yesterday, the 23th of september, in Cyberspace Arena. Organized by the Moscow Federation of Computer Sport. Featured QC.
Mode - Duel.
Format - Single elimination.
Notorious participants - Cooller, Base, Nitrino, Inz, Undead, H8M3, Butcher.

The prizepool was more or less symbolical - 20 000 rub for the 1st place and thats it. But the top 3 got some prizes from the sponsors.

But judging by the quality of stream, it was pretty decent organized, at least better than the QCON. Especially liked the HUD.

See how it was in brackets

Or see VOD.

HF.

If somebody of the participants will tell us how it was, would be great. H8M3, maybe?

Dreams about Quake Live (8 comments)
Posted by baksteen @ 20:29 CDT, 23 September 2017 - iMsg
So I've been dreaming about playing Quake Live lately and in these dreams it feels amazing.

I haven't played QL in months, because QC is the new shit and even though it's shit compared to QL it's where the competition is at, playing the game that Cypher and Cooller and all the old QL legends that I fell in love with are playing is more satisfying to me than playing the dead but better and more fun game, which is Quake Live.

Either way I've been dreaming of playing Quake Live lately, which never happened before I played Quake Champions. I never dreamed of playing a video game before this shit, well except you know these dreams when you play a game for 6 hours and then you go to bed and then you're like half asleep and half still playing the game in your head, you know?

Problems with the respawn system in Duel (9 comments)
Posted by baksteen @ 20:18 CDT, 23 September 2017 - iMsg
Imo there are 3 things wrong with the current respawn system in Duel, and the combination of those things in some cases create a one-sided, boring and non-competitive experience of the gametype:

- You can stand in certain spots and force certain respawn points with 100% success rate. In previous Quake games this was not possible, there were locations people would go to after killing their opponent to try and force a spawn in a certain area, and in some spots there was at best a 50% chance of forcing a certain spawnpoint, but never 100% certainty.

- You can delay your respawn for a very long time, much longer than in previous Quake games.

- You always know exactly when your opponent has respawned because the icon of their new champion will light up. Knowing when exactly your opponend had respawned was not possible in previous Quake games.

Let's take a look at how it worked in Quake Live. Let's say you just killed your opponent and start spamming a respawn point. If you don't see your opponent spawning at the spot you're spamming at, this could mean two things:

- He has already respawned at another spawn point
- He is delaying his respawn

In this case the spamming player needs to make a decision:

- He can keep spamming the spawnpoint in the hope that the opponent is delaying his spawn, but if the opponent has already spawned elsewhere then he's wasting precious seconds, since the opponent would already be collecting items and making his way back into the game. He would therefore risk losing control.
- He can stop spamming the spawnpoint and look for the opponent in a different area, or fall back onto items.

This is why in Quake Live delaying your spawn was often an effective way to avoid getting spawnfragged, because it's risky to waste time spamming a spawn point if the opponent did not show up immediately. After all, in the vast majority of the cases there was a bigger chance of him having spawned elsewhere than him delaying his respawn.

In Quake Champions, because you always know wether your opponent has already respawned or not, combined with the fact that standing in certain spots will force a spawnpoint with 100% certainty, it means that the spawnfragger can just keep spamming a spawnpoint until he hits the opponent (if done correctly), or until he sees the icon of the new champion appear, without having to worry about the opponent having spawned elsewhere and losing out on map control.

The solution would be to have more than one possible respawn point where the opponent could respawn at all times, combined with a delay of the appearing of the new champion icon, so that you don't know exactly when your opponent has respawned.
This way it would work more like in Quake Live. We will still see attempts of spawnfragging, and occassionaly we will see spawn frags, but it won't be rediculous and unavoidable like it is now.

A spawnfrag is much more significant in QC compared to QL since there are only 3 champions available per round, it's just silly to see some rounds end after the first kill followed up by 2 cheesy spawn frags.

One-off classic QL format tourney in QC? (9 comments)
Posted by trepunkt @ 14:05 CDT, 23 September 2017 - iMsg
Can anyone confirm if 125fps has considered a one-off classic (ql) 10 min tourney format?

You could have a 1v1 team deathmatch server / 10 min timelimit so it doesn't force the new duel format, then either....

-both players locked into a single champion (eg both ranger for 10 mins a la ql, both anarki for 10 mins a la cpma)

-both players locked into a champion of their choice.

Just wondering if it's been suggested/rejected (due to it upsetting QC PR because it doesn't follow the duel format they are pushing)

Would be fun to see

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 :)

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.

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)

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.

daler chaoticz socrates makaveli blokey - why we need to see their comaback if we have rapha now =)... polos blue stelam were really interesting players but not really top imho... 9.sujoy 9.doomer(doomer 34 years old now) not sure that they can to play realy good nowdays.. and about thresh - it would be absolutly fantastic if we will see his comaback but so interesting... but of course i wanne see totally comaback of all players in that list =)

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

I 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 think any match between rapha, cooller, fat and czm in their prime would just be amazing.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Sweden Paladia  - Reply to #217
There is nothing suggesting that Thresh was better than Lakerman, DOOMer or Sniket.

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

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

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

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

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

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

#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.

Wasn't ION Games an online tournament? The one where elpajuo went AFK on tourney4 with a small (1 frag?) lead, and then Daler took the win at the end?

I think you may be right, though he was #1 at AmeriCup and LayeredX as well (and second at Quakecon and WCG USA 2002).

Python should be in the list. And the spanish guy who won one of the WCG's, whose name I can't remember.

I would still have voted for PELE [PK], hail!

Thats' right, I wondered if a WCG winner could be forgotten.

But Akiles, not heard much of him lately..

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fatal1ty ofc.

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

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