Fazz at Quakecon 2015 (69 comments)
Posted by Memento_Mori @ 10:43 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
Quakecon 2015 has been recently announced, and players are starting to arrange their trips to take part in what - for the moment - looks like being the only major event for Quake Live in 2015.

Tonight, Sweden Pelle "fazz" Söderman announced on his stream that he will be going to Quakecon, and participate in the tournaments there. The specific formats are yet to be revealed, but rumors talk about the traditional Duel Masters plus a Team focused tournament.

Fazz is an old school player, with good performances in both duel and TDM. His last apparitions were at Lan Prague, where Sweden 4 old men arrived 2nd cup_silver, beaten by the Russian powerhouse Russia deliberate murder, and at the 125FPS Showmatch agains his countryman Sweden Spart1e which resulted in a 4-3 for fazz.

The participation of fazz to this tournament is sponsored by Switzerland Memento_Mori, who last year supported Belgium Romain "dem0n" Leclercq in his trip to Quakecon.

120/144hz monitors!?1? (22 comments)
Posted by skint @ 07:52 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
At the moment I'm using some Hanns-G 22inch 1680x1050 monitor that my brother left behind when he moved to Korea. Can't remember the model but I'm sure last time I looked at specs it has 5ms response time... probably more.

Anyway is it really worth me getting a 120/144hz monitor? I play a bit of Quakeworld, a bit of Reflex and every now and again Quakelive. Don't know if I play them enough to warrant buying a new monitor? Or does the 120hz make all the newer games smoother/better looking too? I'm under the impression you need to get the FPS to match or something.

Theres the Benq 2411 for about £230 an AOC one for £200 that I've seen. Or a 1080p/60hz/1ms monitor for about £110-120. Or make do with what I've got????????????

Changes to weapon dmg overview (17 comments)
Posted by gojira_ @ 03:31 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
This subject has been beat to death. But time has passed and I enjoy hearing other peoples perspective on esr. You guys are pretty humorous as well as intelligent.

All the weapons in quake are situation specific and breath life into quake as much as the fluidity of movement. The tier level of weapons was essential for single player. Each new weapon you found made you feel much more empowered. In multiplayer it was all about acquiring the most powerful weapons asap, and in the QW days the weapons were the ingredients for a lethal adrenaline dance like no other game. The lightning gun and rocket launcher reigned supreme. Rockets hit for a possible 150dmg per second. LG could hit for a whopping 300dmg per second.

Then of course, our beloved railgun came into the scene which changed the dynamic, but in a good way. No longer could a person run and hide without the likeliness of taking a 100 dmg blow from the railgun. The railgun added a more authoritative stance to the polished aimers of the game. It's cooldown made for an effective vulnerability but it dished out when used wisely and confidently. A new situation specific weapon that was very much welcomed.

As most of us know, the weapons have taken a bit of change over the years but mostly in the QL years. Q3 had an 8dmg per bolt which fired 20 bolts per second, a maximum of 160dmg a second. This was an extreme change but the lg was still as effective as QW. One might say QW's weapons were too lethal, and that's a fair point. I personally loved QW's method but Q3 was refreshing change considering it's rate of fire being much quicker. This was the trend that was followed since, faster rate of fire, less cool down time and less dmg.

QL's method isn't something I could label as wonderful, nor do I dislike it absolutely. I'm in between. Nevertheless, I find myself longing for 7dmg LG and I miss the lethal feeling of 100dmg railgun with longer cooldown. Seemed more beefy that way.

At the 30% accuracy thresh-hold you empty just about all your LG bolts into one opponent. I think newcomers feel pushed away by this. They rage almost always after getting dominated by strong LG players. That's been common since Q3, but it hasn't always taken so long to be dominated; it's dramatic. Quicker death = less time to feel indignation. Longer death = over dramatic and more time to feel helpless and frustrated. Again, players with strong LG have always raged newcomers, but i can't help but feel that it's nerf was a bad decision for both perspectives.

There is much more I could say about other weapons (I miss ssg) that came and went but I'll leave it there. How do you guys feel about the changes to weapons over the years?

How to attempt ultrasmooth demos? (No comments)
Posted by kevlark @ 01:06 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
I try attempt ultrasmooth demos in q3 and ql many time, but do not have results even in offline mode demo recording. This eliminates the cause of the quality of Internet connection. and it points to the fact that my problem of not knowing the correct settings.

I have tried many combinations of settings in the game configs q3 and ql in offline and online modes. These settings are: com_maxfps, sv_fps,snaps,rate, cl_maxpackets, g_synchronousclients,cl_packetdup, in_mouse, m_filter, cg_filter_angles, cg_smoothclients.

My qame settings of ql: com_maxfps 250, snaps 125, cl_maxpackets 125, sv_fps 125, cg_smoothclients 1, rate 25000, m_filter 31, cg_filter_angles 16.

I have a fairly powerful computer for q3 and ql, so the problem is not in the low power of my pc. I have a stable 250 fps in the game, rarely drop below 250 fps for unknown reasons.

I experimented myt demos -, and realized that the player has smooth demo, I was not able to achieve the same smooth video in same videorecord config for my demos recording even in offline mode.

I have examples of smooth ql demos:

Who knows how it is achieved and smooth demos and gameplay , that will help me please.

Myt , dragoniz, vZ.ZER042H prompt me your game settings please if you are reed this post.

WMO left/right MB/switch (4 comments)
Posted by larix @ 00:56 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
these fuckers are soldered onto the pcb. i got this mouse from dacheng2009 on ebay like 3 weeks ago and the left mouse button has completely stopped responding (still audibly clicks perfectly fine)

opened it up to see if anything was broken and nope, pressing the switch directly will give the sweet button clicking sound but it doesn't work.

can't remove it without a soldering iron

thinking about replacing it with the middle button like this guy did:

anyone know of another fix or why this shit is happening other than its a chinese knockoff?

anyone in Brooklyn, NY want to lend me their soldering kit?

i also opened up my broken zowie fk to try and fix the switches in those just for the fun of it, but those copper fucking springs are the devil's work.

The popular science-entertainment programme featuring Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage is taking a wild turn, next week's special will give the universe of DooM Doom a shot - debunking myths for your ever present pestering questions. How does a BFG actually work? How can I survive on another planet? How do I get rid of those pesky satanic aliens?

The team will be joined by id id Software's own Tim Willits, the show will be hosted on the Discovery Channel at 08:00 CST, 31 January 2015. The team will use the Doom 3 BFG edition as a reference point.

Rumors has it that this could hint on a new Doom release date, maybe Bethesda has something in the oven and they're using this event to promote their upcoming title. Those who preordered Wolfenstein: The New Order should be the first to receive their beta keys, as stated in the previous Doom 4 announcement.

I'm not big fan of moba games. Also in my oppinion threre is no reaon to play team-based games a lot if you don't have a team...

I quite like dota 2 or csgo but without proper team is not that good. That's why I pretty like Hots and it's casual (?) way.

- fun
- matches are short
- heroes from blizzard universe
- skins, not that important, but much better than other moba games
- i don't really care if I win or lose
- matches are more even, I think
- easier to make 'comeback' than other moba games
- good to play short match after work
- more team based? less carry based?

Seems to be more casual than other games, but who cares.

any1 play it?

Minobot elo gateway problem (2 comments)
Posted by barrybumcheeks @ 09:25 CST, 23 January 2015 - iMsg
I have installed minqlbot to manage my server. The main reason for the bot was to create an 'elo gateway' so that only players with an elo between say 1400 and 1800 were allowed to connect. My own elo is in the 1600 range so this seemed like a reasonable place to start. The bot seems to work but the elo restriction function doesn't. In the config file the variables called MinimumRating and MaximumRating determine the elo gateway. I have set these but to no avail? Has anyone else had experience with this bot and knows how to configure this aspect? Also someone mentioned another server management bot called mitchbot.
Where do I get mitchbot as I could not find it with Google. Do I have the correct spelling? The reason for installing Minobot was because I'm T3 one day and T4 the next. I used to use skill matching but my server would end up with many 2000+ elo players. Sometimes even 2300+! The skill range in T4 is far to great for an average player like myself. An elo gateway seems much more sensible as the skill range would be more limited. Any help in sorting out the elo problem with Minobot or a link to mitchbot would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Had 2 custom icemats made (18 comments)
Posted by fisT @ 08:48 CST, 23 January 2015 - iMsg
So after drejk generously sent me his icemat, I instantly fell in love with the perfect blazing fast yet surgically precise frosty glass surface.

However, the icemat is only 30cm wide, which is really arduously small for my sensitivity of 35-40cm. I don't like to lose my tracking or have to swipe in the middle of fights.

So I went to a glass factory, and talked with the guys there for a while and had myself made two of these babies, aka FISTPAD :D (poor image quality)

Unfortunately you can't tell from the pictures but the surface is the same amazing extremely fine grainy surface as on an icemat.

They have the exact same surface as an icemat, except I can get them any size I want. I got mine to be 50x40cm while I had another made for Sietse who's willing to pay for his in the size of a qck+.

For this size of a glass plate I also took a slightly thicker glass so it's less likely to break, and it feels pretty solid so far.

It also tracks exactly as well as an icemat, extremely well. Except on zowie mice.

Contemplating having a bit of a PC upgrade.

Budget £500 and with that I just need a mobo/cpu/gpu/psu

Pretty certain I'll go for a Corsair semi-modular PSU but if there's something better...

I have a m-atx case, 1 ssd, 1 hdd, 8gb corsair vengeance ram and Asus Xonar sound card to use with it.
I might spend about another £100 ish to get a new case and a 1tb hybrid drive to replace the old hdd and just fancy a new case.

8gb ram will be fine for a while wont it?

All pins are made of books on psychology

1. People are social. We need the fellowship and fun. Fun are friends.

But no friends in the game 1x1. Only you and your enemy. No communication with the enemy.
No sociality. Only you and the enemies around you on the servers.

2. People do not like to strain and learn.

Quake difficult game. Need a lot of strain. Player Level has a wide margin. ELO 700-2700.
The difference of 400 ELO is a 100% victory.

Simple calculations:
700 + 400 + 400 + 400 + 400 + 400.

Have you ever tried to come to the gym and immediately lift 170 pounds post?

- Why are new to the game is to get on the strong opponents?
- Why is the game allows it?
- Why are next to each nickname in the game do not have his ELO?
- Why all the players have to download scripts from the internet to see the ELO?
- Why do I need You can simply tie ELO next to each nickname.

3. Referring to the experience of other online games. What is needed Quake. Screenshots examples.. plz download and put in thread

Ninox never came, BST gave up? (42 comments)
Posted by stcne @ 10:37 CST, 22 January 2015 - iMsg
I pre ordered the Ninox Aurora back in november. While my order got paused for the massdrop, I finally got a supportticket answer that my mouse was being sent.

Unfortunately for me, the package got lost somewhere between in UK, Denmark or Sweden. Amazon, which handles the delivery, takes no responsibility as they respond 'talk to the seller' and none of the above mentioned countries postal service can actually say where the package is. UK say it passed on to Denmark, first call to Swedish postal service says it is in Denmark,Denmark says it is in Sweden and second call to Sweden is responded with that it isn't in Sweden and not in Denmark. In short, I'm screwed and they all tell me 'talk to the seller'.

All that said, I cannot get hold of anyone at Ninox. Multiple tickets at their homepage when logged in doesn't get an answer. Mailing Ninox have yet to render me an answer either. PM'ing BST on Reddit doesn't have any effect and I cannot PM on this page (I'm not allowed to yet or something along those lines).

The answer I end up with is that I am screwed by Ninox for 50 Euro (price+delivery+taxes) and I have to deal with it.

Does anyone else have any idea what I can do to get myself the money back or the mouse itself?

TL;DR Paid for Ninox Aurora, it never came, possibly lost in delivery somewhere in Europe and Ninox will not respond. 50 euro lost. Halp.

Mousepads and High Sens vs Low Sens (63 comments)
Posted by itsDANNY @ 16:44 CST, 21 January 2015 - iMsg
Hi bodyevery,

I've played high sens for nearly 10 years now and only very recently have I realised that a lot of professional gamers play at low sensitivity. To provide an approximation, 2.5cm-3cm is what it takes for a 360. My accuracy averages at 20%-22% from overall gameplay, some games peak up to 35%. In pub games, I generally tend to come first.

My question is, is it worth to switch over (gradually or almost instantaneously) to low sensitivity? Will my in-game performance gradually get better?

To provide some context to why I ask this now is recently I have been wanting to purchase a mouse pad, and only then has this made me become more 'competitive' in a way and hence I wish advantage myself in every way possible. So, yes, I have never used a mousepad and am still unsure if I even need one. So far, looking at the QcK / Goliathus pads.

Thanks for the help!

Heavy vs Light mouse (23 comments)
Posted by ratman1337 @ 19:25 CST, 18 January 2015 - iMsg
Wouldn't a heavy mouse offer more control over a very light mouse as you are less likely to over compensating aim. I have a g100s and removed the weight and replaced the mouse feet and I'm wondering if it was the wrong choice. It's almost like it's hard to aim pixel perfect now because a little to much force can cause my aim to be off where as with a heavy mouse and a slow glide I had more feedback from my mouse movements.

3D printing to create a mouse shell? (4 comments)

Just wondered if anyone has tried to make their own mouse shell using a 3d printer.

I was considering buying an aurora to use for the insides. I can't really figure out how to make buttons for mine.

Any thoughts on how to form buttons?

Also can anyone recommend a good 3d printing company? Doesn't matter where as long as I can have stuff shipped to the uk.

Can we finally accept why Quake failed (596 comments)
Posted by Disrepute @ 05:54 CST, 18 January 2015 - iMsg
Can we finally accept that listening to organisers who wanted to reduce costs, and the money hungry egos of a few top players all demanding duel was the way forward, COMPLETELY and UTTERLY KILLED the game?!

LoL has shown the world that team games are where it's at, but hey we didn't even need that. The intelligent few among us have been saying for maybe a decade or more that focusing on duel was a mistake.

Nobody plays duel. It kills the community. No community means no players. No players means no audience. No audience means no sponsors. No sponsors means no money. No money means no events. No events means no interest. No interest means no further development.

Sure we all enjoy the show-piece of duel. Two of the best players fighting it out so we can name a BEST INDIVIDUAL PLAYER. But in reality it’s just like the ballon d'or in football. It's vanity.

So Fatal1ty got rich. Good for him. But Quake is dead.

Having a shitty stream every weekend showcasing the same 20 players will not build a game. It will KILL IT. We all mocked painkiller because nobody wanted to play it. But did anybody really think why? Was it really because it was a buggy game? No. It was because it was all focused on duel. 90% of people do not want to play duel.

Most people have an ability to be social. Most want to play with friends. Most don't want the insane pressure of everything being down to them.

Think of every arena shooter that has been made off the back of Quake. They all focus on duel and they all FAIL. Reflex will fail too.

Please all you duel supporters WAKE UP that YOU have killed quake. The major mistake id made was to listen to the community and focus on duel. Quake SHOULD BE A TEAM FOCUSED GAME. Just like LoL or CSGO are that are now killing it once a broader audience has access to watch.

I hate every one of you duel only supporters that killed my game.

Duel should actually be removed completely and the development team for the next quake should focus around a single team mode. Something with an objective that sets a focus on the viewpoint.

BBC - The rise of the cyber athletes (39 comments)
Posted by Disrepute @ 11:04 CST, 17 January 2015 - iMsg
Just watched this... (Need to be UK or get a damn prox)

Interesting. My two cents:

- Why would we care if esports is actually considered a "sport" in the traditional sense?

- I don't think the whole "esports" discussion makes sense. People like specific games. Some more than 1 but very few like the WHOLE of esports.

- Games change all the time to be completely different. Sports do not. There is no applicable history to be built if they change often, so I think it will be hard to build a lifetime fan like you would in a sport.

- The growth and money seems more to do with broadcasting (Why did we pick Quake to stream and why did we quit!) and twitch of which many major broadcasts could be considered casual gaming. So isn't it more about entertainment than competition now. 'Big Brother' is technically a competition, but 99% of the show is just about entertainment (debatable).

120/144Hz monitors similar to S23A700D? (15 comments)

I previously used the Samsung S23A700D, a glossy 120Hz that somehow performed well in the aspects of Hz, input lag, and image quality. Does anyone here know a monitor similar to this? The ASUS VG248QE is popular but I read that there are potentially BAD problems, like its backlight bleeding and poor color quality. I don't want need IPS-level colors, just decent ones like in the S23A700D.

I don't want a CRT.

Reflex update released, netcode changes (244 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 23:08 CST, 16 January 2015 - iMsg
Refex developers released a rather hefty update that plays a vital role in online FPS titles. - the netcode has been reworked, Ion Cannon (The quake lightning gun equivalent) damage has been lowered from 9 to 7 along with its knockback, spawn system has changed, hit sounds have been updated and plenty bugs were squashed. A snippet from the overview dealing with netcode
"The new Reflex netcode uses a combination of extrapolation and backwards reconciliation in attempt to keep what you're seeing consistent across clients and servers. This lag compensation has an upper limit of 80ms -- if you have more than an 80ms ping, you'll need to lead by ping - 80ms. I.e, if your ping is 100ms, you'll need to lead by 20ms.
Our backwards reconciliation has the same limit -- if your enemy has a ping of over 80ms, they won't be able to shoot you from 500ms in the past."
You are welcome to give it a shot, report feedback to developers and let them know how the netcode feels right now - if you're pinging below 80 it should be quite noticeable.

Plain as day in Saudi Arabia. QL is a mockery to its predecessors. What will the devs do to rekindle the fire?

Personally couldn't care less. I took a year off and came back to a steam release that further drowned the potential this project has. There may still be hope, but maybe not. You can't have an abortion after nine months of pregnancy.

Your move now. Better do something incredible. Good luck.

My suggestion is stop shitting on your fanbase.

Property shows! (29 comments)
Posted by Dird @ 04:02 CST, 16 January 2015 - iMsg
UKers will know of these (although maybe not how many VODs are up), mainly sharing with others who like property shows.

*Note* If you're abroad and 4od says "appears you're not in UK" click something like "believe this is a bug" or some shit then use the post code B4 7ET. No proxy to find exact messages.

Property Ladder: This is about wannabe property developers. They buy houses cheap then renovate/extend & try to sell at a profit. Since most are newbs they tend to make mistakes/overspend on their budgets.

Grand Designs: Castles, churches, barns, unique designs (like them German slot together buildings). High budget developments, sometimes to sell on but often to keep as their own house.

Location, Location, Location: People being helped to find a house for them to move to. They narrow down & show them 4-5 houses that match their criteria (budget, location, rooms etc).

Grand Designs Abroad: Same as Grand Designs but abroad I guess? Not seen it before. Imagine it's interesting to see different countries' styles.

Does USA have similar style shows?

This morning in IRC I was being random and i was using haiku poems to answer and comment. Why? I don't know ... moving on! At some point the poems began to take on a Quake theme, and this little gem was discovered.
All times aggressive
You must choose situations
I am talking it
Before I am called out on it I admit that the original quote used for the middle line should contain "have to" instead of "must"... and if you have a problem with it all I have to say is:
You cannot resist
Determined to reply first

Thank you for making my day cooller =)

Choice of MX300 or Aurora? (65 comments)
Posted by tknq @ 13:41 CST, 14 January 2015 - iMsg
I want to replace the G1 that I've been using since 2008. A friend of mine has an MX300 sitting around that he is willing to sell. If you were to make a purchase, would you buy the MX300 or go with the newly released Aurora? What it boils down to is a reliable sensor with prediction vs taking a gamble and hoping I receive an Aurora without problems (based on the feedback from bst's PART 3 post) . Any feedback is greatly appreciated

MX300 = $20 USD, used briefly, but still in its box
Aurora = $45 USD, Amazon

Old mice appropriate for tournaments? (16 comments)
Posted by storm @ 20:04 CST, 13 January 2015 - iMsg
Before I start this isn't me bashing the hardware or anything, I was just thinking about how appropriate WMOs etc are for tournaments these days. For instance they need to have the USB port overclocked to 500hz to be usable, so from a LAN tournament organiser how does that look? A player emails you in advance and says that he needs to have custom hacked USB drivers to enable mouse performance, doesn't it seem a bit presumptuous to think that they might do that?

I guess I'm saying that using these mice can be risky, what if the organisers don't allow this kind of thing. Does that mean you don't enter the tournament? or are forced to use a different mouse etc.

Anyway yeah I was wondering what the reality of this is, and what other peoples thoughts are.

Thickness of stock WMO+IMO+m$Blue feet (16 comments)
Posted by G-Rod @ 10:51 CST, 13 January 2015 - iMsg
Does anyone here know the exact thickness of the feet for the WMO, the IMO and also the m$Blue optical(has same MLT sensor)?

Is it .5mm? I remember the old hyperglidez ('MS-1') for the IE3.0, WMO, and IMO were .5mm thick (theyre now .8mm, sold as 'MS-3').

If u want more info:
i did some extensive testing before and realized these mouses sensors' trackin is affected with teflon tape that is .010 inch thickness on top of the stock feet. I dont want to brag about my ability/exp. in FPS or knowledge - but Im 100% certain of this, and almost as certain that the effect is prolly not ideal.

what this means is that tracking is changed with .25mm of extra height. So if u replace with say a different feet that is very thick (Puretrack perfectglide HD are 1.2mm thick), avoidin this is a small margin of error.

One caveat is that i tested on an icemat(black) and use a high sensitivity, so this may be less noticeable or not even important if you do not. (But alot who use these mice do so exactly because theyre one of few that work 100% on glass, and the surface may not even matter.)

I also applied replacement feet on top of the stock feet before (cant remember brand, but like hyperglidez), and tracking was affected, but this is kinda known.

These mice are (thankfully) on their way out, along with their miserable generation(hopefuly), so i realize its late if this wasnt already well known. But now i wana replace the feet and make sure i do it right and go out with one last bang, and to properly compare upgrades.

N.A. Duel Cup #5 Youtube VODs (10 comments)
Posted by flair @ 03:39 CST, 13 January 2015 - iMsg
The VOD for January's cup has been uploaded to

You can view either the Full (Un-Cut) Broadcast or select Individual Matches. Enjoy.

I am actively looking for people who want to cast the North American Duel Cups. I have been fortunate enough to have players like Rey & Davis help out when they can. Unfortunately they are regular players in the events so they are not always going to be available, and I need some help. I don't care if you're a 3000 elo dueler or if you have never casted before. That said you should meet the following criteria...

#1) You WANT to cast quake! This sounds redundant but I cannot stress this one enough. You should be excited to do this! If you're offering to cast simply to help then I urge you to reconsider before continuing. Please have a strong desire to cast quake! Thank you.
#2) You can read, write, and speak English fluently and are not afraid to do so for an audience. This may be the North American Duel Cup but I don't care where you or your accent are from.
#3) Have a decent microphone. No distortion or feedback. I don't care if its a $10 P.O.S. if you come through clearly.
#4) Be passionate! Similar to the first requirement but more of a personality thing. You don't need to be smiles and rainbows 24/7 or anything crazy, but no one wants to hear someone who obviously doesn't care about what they are doing.

Interested? Let me know!

QuakeLive Account: flair

TLDR: I need help with casting. If you are fluent in English, love quake, and have a strong desire to cast I'd like to hear from you.

Intel Socket LGA2011 same as LGA2011-3? (4 comments)
Posted by Skinny_Puppy @ 16:51 CST, 12 January 2015 - iMsg
I know it's a different/newer socket.

But can you use a LGA 2011 CPU cooler on LGA 2011-3 ?

The problem is I'm going to upgrade to socket 2011-3, but can't find a matching CPU cooler.

I'm too afraid to go for liquid cooling.

So if a cpu cooler support 2011, will it support 2011-3?

Is because people is usually laggy?

I know timenudge is not completly hit registration
But i would benefit more in my LG/rail in:
cl_timenudge -5 or autotimenudge 1 ?

Well, I do realize these last 2 days have had alot of AGP in headlines but its for point, I was asked to do an interview so I did it. Things are on a calendar and we are trying to keep them weekly. Usually it is just the AGP Classics Match of the Week. This week had 2 though as player election started. Once everything is announced there isn't much to be announced. SO, to the haters, just be patient. This might seem insignificant to some of you and rightly so, but it is not to many others.

Imho its super exciting so far. You should consider getting more interviews with all of the council in-depth analysis of what they are working for and what they stand for. I imagine you get one of those sticky news items on ESR with all the candidates for at least 3-5 weeks. You should perhaps also post some articles as its been a while since last time, just to discuss how and what the AGP can do. I also suggest that the members start blogging in their journals about all this important stuff that i, as one of the gamers that only follow ESR wouldnt get to know anyway else.

"Should Streetrunner be allowed to post AGP "news" on this site at the rate of a sad person on Twitter? "

By calling it "news" and saying something about a sad person on twitter you already make clear what you think is the appropriate vote.

Why not? It's an Esports site , AGP is an esports organisation, their weekly AGP classics are entertaining to reminisce about or to find out for somewhat new players like me. Just make some common sense filters bout Major News cos a lot of it is just provoking #care resposnes
