Hard mousepad and dust (No comments)
Posted by Barktooth @ 15:14 CDT, 29 April 2016 - iMsg
I have an aluminum mousepad and this shit pisses me off. I clean it every 10 minutes but it still gathers dust while I'm playing, and the glide becomes terrible and I can feel the dust scraping underneath my mouse. Anyone else have this problem and what do you do?

I've used cloth pads before but they just wear out way too quickly and don't have the same glide. Especially for LG good glide is needed.

HoQ TDM Spring 2016 - Round 6 (No comments)
Posted by xou @ 13:06 CDT, 29 April 2016 - iMsg
This Sunday, 1st of May, will see the sixth round of the ql HoQ TDM Spring Season 2016!

Here is the schedule for this new round.


Division 1 should be over by now, but we have 6 matches in the catchup round. Anyway, the main encounter for the first rank was played last week. It seems nobody will be able to stop deal with it now, REKT just lost to them in a close close game.

The main game of the second division was also played last week, (B52) faced last pick and managed to defeat them after a long evening! In the same week, the Russians also got rid of WORLDSTAR and are definitely leading the rankings now. Note that excel, Europe Burrito and Onfire still haven't scored any points!

Only one game played for the 5th div3 round, Zombei ate up RAKS. Virtual owners and Dretwe Lamy have rescheduled for Sunday evening.

1500 ELO for new players is stupid (35 comments)
Posted by GanGBanG @ 04:20 CDT, 29 April 2016 - iMsg
pls fix nau.

srsly, the new elo rating is fucking every CA shuffle and making shit unplayable (insert CA joke here). 1200 start score was way better. just had to play a game with two "1500" in team, one 16% LG, other 13%, neither knows what bridge is, one of them can't even jump pillars.

OR, make the tracking by registartion only; sign up with your steam id to have stats sent from server, so we know immediately who's a nab and who isn't.

I also remember another interview or speech where he said he still had a "be all end all Quake" to develop, where he would put max emphasis on geeky stuck like device responsiveness and so on.

I think the guy will eventually come back to id some day to fix this fucking mess and make an actual good, new Quake. Until that day, Quake 3 was the last good MP competitive game that reached mainstream status, not accenting this cold hard fact is coping.

Huge fps drop since the Steam update. (4 comments)
Posted by Herezja @ 12:01 CDT, 24 April 2016 - iMsg
I haven't given QL a go since it went Steam exclusive. But I changed my mind yesterday, and as soon as I installed it, and loaded my config, I noticed that my fps are basically cut by half varying from 40 to 80, and it gets even worse when there are bots on the screen.
Now, my PC is old, garbage tier, but it was able to handle around 125 fps before.

Is there some magical command that I'm not aware of, or were the changes that significant? ;_;

HoQ TDM Spring 2016 - Round 5 (20 comments)
Posted by xou @ 11:35 CDT, 22 April 2016 - iMsg
This Sunday, 24th of April, will see the fifth round of the ql HoQ TDM Spring Season 2016!

Here is the schedule for this new round.


Division 1 only had one match from round 4 played this week. Now, Pacmen won't be able to play before May 4th and deal with it and REKT are struggling to arrange a date. But Deliberate Murder have been quite active! First they managed to get a clean win from the big dicks. And then they faced their round 3 opponents, REKT, in a thrilling three-mapper. You should definitely check the VODs if you haven't seen this match (Russia 102, United Kingdom? insan3). Round 5 is the last round for Division 1, but there are still 8 matches to be played.

last pick and (B52) still lead the Division 2 rankings after winning their matches. The other match was wildcarded by Onfire. Division 3's Zombei remains undefeated after a close game against Dretwe Lamy. And Platige Team is on the same path after meeting with Virtual owners.

One word about nerds as they only played 1 match in 4 rounds. All their opponents used wildcard and they don't have a match this week. They're the favorites of Division 3 so Zombei and Platige Team should take advantage of the delayed matches to practice, practice, practice !

hi,

Are deactivated players on QLStats known cheaters?

If so would it be possible to get a list of all their Steams ID`s in one text file so as to add them to my server access list? This would save a lot of time trying to weed these players out.

Thanks in advance

PS any such list would have to be corroborated by public inspection so as to avoid any innocent players being added erroneously or even maliciously.

House of Quake CA 4v4 Round 4 recap (2 comments)
Posted by viaIImaximus @ 15:23 CDT, 20 April 2016 - iMsg
The fourth round of HoQ CA 4v4 Spring Season 2016 was played on April 14th featuring four matches across two divisions this time round.

The match results are the following:


Standings:


Even though in this round we haven’t seen any division 1 matches being played, the folks in division 2 and 3 sure did their best to entertain us with their games. It’s those damn Russ.. uhm.. Danes again who were in the spotlight of the evening. The match division 2 has been looking forward to for a while now, the match that would decide the group leader, the match that would end world hunger (!), well not really but our hunger for a good CA game was fed by a nubz versus Team PULSE clash. Ruining this epic hype introduction is very well related to a 0:2 straight win for Team PULSE. That gets them the lead position in the group and gets everyone else’s fangs out ready to suck on their blood and points while at it. Other than that match, the German’s got the ‘boot’ (not Das Boot the movie) but an Italian one. The Italian Death Squad won over, now ashamed, Team CODIAN who lost in two straight maps. Team CODIAN now with no points added to their name don’t look too good. Italian’s managed to get 6 points so far and are tied with nubz.

A nice pairing was displayed in division 3, where we had two A and B teams from Frag Emm Clan and Because life is izi… The two, actually four, managed to play three mapper matches. One match went to the [IZI] B while facing F.E.C with a 2:1 win! Since the universe acknowledges only one constant and that is balance, in that retrospect F*E*C was bound to win, and win they did, while [IZI] A being the victims of poor planet alignment and sheer bad luck, lost. ‘Fraggers’ won this matchup with a 2:1 result. LG/ still leads the group with a nice purse of points, 12 being the number, while close second are the 2StH, while the third place is having a threesome. Three teams sharing the same amount of points, that being 6, and it features two [IZI] teams and one F*E*C team in a clench.

Be sure to check out some more upcoming matches this week!

Note: The servers used for official games MUST have HoQ gametype factories (hoq_ca) to enforce the proper CA settings. Please check the rules if you are not sure about something or contact a HoQ CA admin.

Duelling & The Art of War (11 comments)
Posted by mapamapa @ 10:16 CDT, 20 April 2016 - iMsg
So I just read The Art of War and it's kind of funny to see how well much of it applies to playing Duel in Quake Live.

Here are some of the most applicable lines I found, there's much more in the whole thing which can be read here: http://classics.mit.edu/Tzu/artwar.html

"All warfare is based on deception.
If he is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him.
If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.
Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
Now the general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to defeat: how much more no calculation at all! It is by attention to this point that I can foresee who is likely to win or lose.
If equally matched, we can offer battle; if slightly inferior in numbers, we can avoid the enemy; if quite unequal in every way, we can flee from him.
Sun Tzu said: The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.
To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.
To see victory only when it is within the ken of the common herd is not the acme of excellence.
What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.
He wins his battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated.
Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
In all fighting, the direct method may be used for joining battle, but indirect methods will be needed in order to secure victory.
Indirect tactics, efficiently applied, are inexhaustible as Heaven and Earth, unending as the flow of rivers and streams; like the sun and moon, they end but to begin anew; like the four seasons, they pass away to return once more.
There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard.
In battle, there are not more than two methods of attack--the direct and the indirect; yet these two in combination give rise to an endless series of maneuvers.
By holding out baits, he keeps him on the march; then with a body of picked men he lies in wait for him.
Sun Tzu said: Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.
Therefore the clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him.
By holding out advantages to him, he can cause the enemy to approach of his own accord; or, by inflicting damage, he can make it impossible for the enemy to draw near.
You can be sure of succeeding in your attacks if you only attack places which are undefended. You can ensure the safety of your defense if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked.
If we wish to fight, the enemy can be forced to an engagement even though he be sheltered behind a high rampart and a deep ditch. All we need do is attack some other place that he will be obliged to relieve.
If we do not wish to fight, we can prevent the enemy from engaging us even though the lines of our encampment be merely traced out on the ground. All we need do is to throw something odd and unaccountable in his way.
Rouse him, and learn the principle of his activity or inactivity. Force him to reveal himself, so as to find out his vulnerable spots.
Carefully compare the opposing army with your own, so that you may know where strength is superabundant and where it is deficient.
How victory may be produced for them out of the enemy's own tactics--that is what the multitude cannot comprehend.
All men can see the tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.
Do not repeat the tactics which have gained you one victory, but let your methods be regulated by the infinite variety of circumstances.
Ponder and deliberate before you make a move.
There are five dangerous faults which may affect a general: (1) Recklessness, which leads to destruction; (2) cowardice, which leads to capture; (3) a hasty temper, which can be provoked by insults; (4) a delicacy of honor which is sensitive to shame; (5) over-solicitude for his men, which exposes him to worry and trouble.
If our troops are no more in number than the enemy, that is amply sufficient; it only means that no direct attack can be made. What we can do is simply to concentrate all our available strength, keep a close watch on the enemy, and obtain reinforcements.
The natural formation of the country is the soldier's best ally; but a power of estimating the adversary, of controlling the forces of victory, and of shrewdly calculating difficulties, dangers and distances, constitutes the test of a great general.
Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory: (1) He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight. (2) He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces. (3) He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks. (4) He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared. (5) He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.
Hence the saying: If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
He who knows these things, and in fighting puts his knowledge into practice, will win his battles. He who knows them not, nor practices them, will surely be defeated."

Hello fans.
Busy with studies so I'm not quite up to date. I heard Doom kinda sucked and Overwatch sucks as well(?)

Most importantly: I also heard that only hope for Quake is Quake 5, which there are rumors about? Is this true? Is it all true????



Finally, Id Software/Bethesda/whoever making q5 in case your are reading it should be called "quake prime", sincerely mr makie.

Why don't you play #tdmpickup? (99 comments)
Posted by quake is potat @ 09:37 CDT, 18 April 2016 - iMsg
Hello beautiful people, and landwhales too.

tl;dr: Do you play QL frequently, but not #tdmpickup? Then please tell us why not, whatever the reason may be.

Not only has #tdmpickup always had the potential for having a larger number of active players, but it has come to my attention that #tdmpickup activity is dwindling considerably in recent times. This thread has two purposes:

1. To preemptively answer some questions players may have regarding #tdmpickup and promote it a bit:






2. To find out the main reasons that are holding active QL players back from playing TDM pickups.

To be honest every reason will be of interest because it's reached a point where every single player counts, so please go ahead and tell us why you don't play pickups, or why you think other people don't.

Obscene language is welcome if it helps you express yourself.

HoQ TDM Spring 2016 - Round 4 (32 comments)
Posted by xou @ 06:53 CDT, 16 April 2016 - iMsg
This Sunday, 17th of April, will see the fourth round of the ql HoQ TDM Spring Season 2016!

Here is the schedule for this new round.


With two wildcards, one forfeit loss and a failed reschedule, the round 3 could seem pretty quiet. But the div1 game between Team Hungary and the big dicks brought a good three-mapper. Also, the russian clash in div3, RAKS and infinity, ended up with a deciding map. In div2, WORLDSTAR versus Hateful Eight was also a close one.

Plans of a Passionate Psychotic (36 comments)
Posted by flair @ 02:24 CDT, 16 April 2016 - iMsg
This post is in response to many of the questions I have been getting since deciding to step away from the North American Duel Cup. If you have no clue what I'm talking about you can catch up on the latest DraNA (lol thanks twitch chat) here and here

I am not abandoning everything, but I have a bunch of bitter sweet emotions and feelings towards the organization and events currently. Combine the previously mentioned feeling about Quake with high stress life situations and you've got a wonderful recipe for disaster. I have no desire or intention to share the details of these "life situations" but I will say that I don't want to ruin the joy that quake brings me by self destructing and taking the NA Duel Cup down with me. So let's skip to the the more important (quake related) details. This community of ours is a bunch of noobs, drama queens, dreamers, hipsters, snobs, friends, try-hards, etc. etc. etc. This is the current state of the Quake community and this community still exists because of how passionate the members of this community are about their Quake.

"So Quake players are passionate. What the **** is your point failr?"

This passion is why I am also having a difficult time letting go. Part of me wants to say "screw it" and stream this upcoming Sunday like normal. Fortunately there is a far louder and more rational voice in my head telling me to "back off" and chill out. I think a good stream is about providing good entertainment. For me it doesn't matter if that entertainment comes from eye opening expert casting or if that entertainment comes from dank memes and fresh satire. The level of entertainment that I have been providing is not up to my personal standards, however I'm not concerned about damaging my ego in this situation. I have a terrible feeling that if I continue trying to force myself to manage all of this alone that I'll end up destroying myself mentally and taking the North American Duel Cup with me. The longer I try to accomplish my goals alone the heavier the bar gets and the farther away I fall from it. This was definitely a cry for help that was unfortunately delivered poorly and in combination with some serious life stress. Hopefully this helps those who are confused at this sudden announcement to understand why I have decided to do this. I actually think that this will help to strengthen and grow the NADC as a static organization within this bitter sweet community of ours.

I have no exact date or time frames, but I do hope to come back again someday soon

Thank You For Quakeing

The quake spawns must be selectable after death
Elder has an excellent scheme,
The key - a very cool innovation!
2 Yellow 1 Red 1 mega - Best choice


Delirium
-cool scheme!!!!!!!!!!!!
-cool armors
-best design!

LostWorld
-No RailGun=No cheat =) Thats why



Mappool now:
Battleforged, Blood Run, Cure, Elder, Furious Heights, Hektik, Sin
ister

Maps that I recommend
Battleforged, Blood Run, Cure, Elder, Elder, Elder, Furious Heights, Delirium, Delirium, Delirium, Delirium, Sinister, LostWorld,, LostWorld,, LostWorld,, LostWorld,

Quake Live - North American Duel Cup #17 (29 comments)
Posted by phy1um @ 09:54 CDT, 14 April 2016 - iMsg
Scheduled: 16:30 CDT, 17 April 2016 to 20:30 CDT, 17 April 2016
Schedule: Passed

After the rescheduling and eventual cancellation of duel cup #16, I'm pleased to announce that the rest of the season will be going ahead as planned. There will be one final cup on the scheduled date and then the playoffs the following week. In the playoffs the players who have gathered the most points during the season will face off for larger cash prizes.

Due to the cancellation of NADC #16 nobody will be awarded points for that cup, so Rapha is free to continue his clean sweep.

As to why I'm making this thread, unfortunately Flair has decided to step down from running this competition for now. I've been in contact with him and everything is OK, however it isn't the best time for him to be doing these. If anyone wants to help run the cup on the day, especially North Americans, that would be fantastic.

Games like Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory? (4 comments)
Posted by subterfuge @ 11:48 CDT, 13 April 2016 - iMsg
Hello. I've been trying to figure out if there's a game like Wolfenstein Enemy Territory anywhere?

I've lately been taking some of my free time to design a total conversion for Q3A that's more similar to Wolf in terms of the scripted events and gametypes that are map dependent. Problem is, I'm not sure there are any other games that have such variation.

In Wolf, there were so many extremely diverse and odd maps, to name a few, V2 Rocket, Minas Tirith, Railgun, and my favorite of all of them, Axis Lab.

So, does anyone know of any more modern shooters with objectives that are more complex and layered than capturing points, flags, or elimination, like Wolf: ET was?

Hi ESR!
Since i like many others enjoy watching twitch.tv streams i felt like i needed a little programming project to pass my time.

It resulted in a small crossplatform application that works on win/osx and some linux distros.
Its main purpose is letting you select your favorite streamers, and then displaying a notification when they come online or goes offline, aswell as opening the stream in your browser or livestreamer.

I realize theres probably applications for this allready out there, but somebody might like it anyway :)

1) [x] Sound in Background toggle, so I know when the match starts while I'm tabbed out. Because these fuckers take ages to F3 sometimes. This should really be standard these days, every game has it.
2) Spectator queue for team modes. Surely it would be a step up from everybody just spamming or holding down team red/blue binds. Duel already has it, just imagine teamsize >1, and it is exactly the same thing.

Now, I know, Steam QL isn't supposed to get any more updates. But these two things would be incredibly easy to implement, IMO.
Whatever...
Where is Sync & Sponge nowadays? They still oversee QL on Steam and have access to it, don't they?

Ya I'm sure I could think of many more improvements, but what would be the point... these two stand out as they'd require so little effort to code, yet hugely improve quality of life.
What's on your 'wishlist' ?

HoQ CA Spring Season 2016 Round 3 Recap (4 comments)
Posted by viaIImaximus @ 12:24 CDT, 12 April 2016 - iMsg
The third round of HoQ CA 4v4 Spring Season 2016 was played on April 7th featuring four matches across three divisions. A couple of close matches played in Division 1 and Division 2 made this day very interesting for all CA lovers.

The match results are the following:


Standings:


First things first. There's some bad news that involves a particular team in division 3. The team in question is Poland Dretwe Lamy, who unable to field enough players to play their games have decided to drop out of the tournament. All the matches have therefore been forfeit wins for their opponents which sees them getting 3 points each. As far as division 3 matches go, there were two played. It seems 2 Steps to Hell stepped up their game and won against Frag Emm Clan (F*E*C) in a 2:0 map win. Unfortunately, for the Because life is izi... clan life proved to be a lot more difficult when facing Loaded/Gunz. With a 2:0 win, LG are toping the group with 12 points with a close second 2StH with 9 points and [IZI A] 3 points.

Exciting things are happening in division 1 and division 2. The main event of the evening being a div 1 match between ENERG and The Northern Tribe. A match that could very well turn out to be the decider for the winner of the group. In that retrospect ENERG is in a better position as they won over tnt in a 3 map thriller, settling down on a 2:1 score. So far ENERG and tnt are tied in the number of points, six to be exact. Having Team CODIAN and whylove breathing down their necks.
Another hair pulling match was taking place in division 2 where the Team PULSE got the scalp off White Ivory. The three mapper clash proved to be a bit too much for White Ivory as they are now third in the group with 3 points. Two Denmark teams are leading the fray in this group with a tie of six points each.

This looks like to be a great CA season as things are pretty even so far. Indeed, not many matches have been played until now but some of the key ones have been and their outcomes are setting the stage for high quality confrontations.

Note: The servers used for official games MUST have HoQ gametype factories (hoq_ca) to enforce the proper CA settings. Please check the rules if you are not sure about something or contact a HoQ CA admin.

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

It's ESR. Do you really take the fact that Streetrunner wants to post lots of news that seriously?
