Question for quakecon attendees. (1 comment)
Posted by skint @ 12:09 CDT, 24 July 2014 - iMsg
I was wondering if anyone who went to quakecon, in the quake area could tell me how much interest did the event receive from people who work at id/bethesda/zenimax? Obviously not including Syncerror.

Did they pass through, chat to anyone, watch some matches, couldnt keep away etc. Just wondered if any of them have a genuine interest for the game or top level gaming (esports bleh)

Edit: just re-read it and looks like im having a dig, im not and it doesnt matter if they do or not. Just curious.

FOV calculator (2 comments)
Posted by McFly @ 11:52 CDT, 24 July 2014 - iMsg
All the FOV calculators seem to have gone offline these days. ;(

Can anyone tell me what my vertical FOV in 16:9 would be coming from a 120 FOV on 4:3?

To make is easier: If my FOV in the old Q3 is 120 - what would it have to be in CS:GO/QL?
(Something like 106, right)

Crowdfunded DH Winter '14 Duel Masters (12 comments)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 10:56 CDT, 24 July 2014 - iMsg
Based on a recent topic by Emenike who is too stubborn to see his twitch subscription fund based and spectator locking idea is bad, im creating this topic.

Basically the idea is first of all get some of the DH admins to greenlight a possible QL tourney where they help us with the infrastructure (place, PCs, monitors, etc). If this happens, next step would be getting Memento to start a paypal donation where the $$$ for the prize pool is raised. Meanwhile we could contact possible sponsors to donate hardware or money to make the prizepool better.

Having only Quakecon as a big lan tourney seems not enough for the amazing top players this community has and theres plenty of time ahead.

Okay, i know that there is alot of bitching at id already, but the thing i wanted to talk, it makes things even worse. We all love this game, and will play it forever no matter what, i guess :> Id not giving a fuck about ql is not new, but cmon, show at least some respect to the players at ur own tournament. Cypher gets 9k for the first place, at the one and only ql Lan event this year, 20 minutes later, 3 random guys got 10k for nothing. Im not jealous or smth, but cmon where's ur repsect for the players? or viewers? If u and verntrillo really want to spent money on your fans, at least dont do it in front of cypher and the other guys, who where practicing for the whole year to get 9k, while random guy gets 10k, well its just not serious, show soem respect u dumb fucks. Maybe bad example, but Dota 2 international 2014, NewBee gets 5 mil for the first place, then 3 random fans of the game are getting 6 millions each, gj lol. So Id u probably should fuck off with this stuff, and dont come around here, or if u want to do smth do it smart.

P.S. Sorry for crappy english.

New Cliff Bleszi BlueStreak interview (No comments)

Mentions a reddit thread you can check out too, if you haven't already.

He doesn't seem to say much. A bit of praise for Dota, LoL, and he says he likes some aspects of Halo, which is worrying. He mentions some good gameplay aspects, but keeps it very vague. I don't know what to think.

Nothing much, really, but I guess it's relevant, so I'll keep tabs.

What mode should rank a DM player? (26 comments)
Posted by moto1 @ 13:45 CDT, 23 July 2014 - iMsg
bear with me here

a new deathmatch game needs a ranked mode, something players can queue into and play matches that adjust their player rating. CS:GO has it, League of Legends has it. Ranked modes give players an idea of their skill and gives them an inventive to improve and get better and play with people in their skill level.

QL never had a proper ranking system. It had tiers, which had no depth and was different for each mode. there was no universal rating system other than ELO, but it's not native to QL so only a small percentage of players are even aware of it.

Here's the issue: Every popular game right now has ONE ranked mode. CS has your typical 5v5 mode, LoL has their 5v5 mode, basically every game has ONE mode.

This is where Quake would have issues, most people here would want a CTF, TDM, and Duel ranked mode, but how does that properly measure a players skill? Realistically a lot of players suck at duel and they would rather play a team mode, so there would be players with multiple rankings. For example a TDM player would likely be playing a lot of TDM and have a high rating in that matchmaking, making the CTF and duel a useless measure of skill. In addition, his TDM ranking wouldn't gauge his skill very well, a TDM player can suck at duel and CTF. Three separate ranks too also makes each one worth less individually. You would have players that would ignore a TDM ranking just by bias alone.

What if the one ranked mode was FFA? There needs to be one mode to measure a players skill and to give people fun matches in their skill level. You can't make that mode duel, so many players don't like it and rather frag in a huge mess of players. You can't make that mode TDM or CTF because it's too mode specific, a good flag runner could get a decent CTF ELO but that shouldn't be the measure of his skill. We need ONE rating system for a player

FFA seems to be a mode that would be welcoming to a lot of players (who doesn't fucking love some FFA sometimes), and would give people a proper deathmatch mode. Players want fast reckless fun in a DM game, creating a ranked mode out of duel, ctf or tdm would alienate a huge majority of casual players who would try a ranked mode.

FFA RANKED, the only way

Sometimes it says i have no friends online, so i restart quake then the list is there, i have done it a few times and it keeps saying i have no friends.

But i have waited while it is on and about 2 minutes later, each person comes online slowly, one at a time.

Is this my internet connection problem or is it quake being laggy?

Crowd-funded QuakeLive LAN possibility (28 comments)
Posted by Emenike @ 12:58 CDT, 23 July 2014 - iMsg
I have an idea. What if make Quake Live LAN fully crowd-funded from twitch subscriptions? And of course only subscribers can view this stream and it will be streamed only by one streamer. For example $10k prize pool duel LAN tournament requires 1000 subscribers with $10-15 subscriptions. I don't know how many is twitch's fee and streamer work costs. Is 1000 achievable? I saw 4000-5000 viewers at twitch only while QuakeCon 2014 group stage.

I hope problem with only one stream (to have streams in other languages) can be solved by creating several twitch accounts and given login-password for streamers. So they can only stream without ability to change anything else (payment credentials, etc). I guess there will not be any pirate restreams because Quake community average age is high enough and if will twitch provides any tools to detect them and will prevent it quickly. Of course well known streamers, organizers are required and it can be held at some LAN party place like DreamHack. Surely first LAN can't be done by this way and needs some risky donate to have guaranteed prize pool. Without having this guaranteed prize pool only optimistic viewers will pay for it and very optimistic players(sponsors) will spend their money for this.

Is number of subscribers is the only one problem?

Quakeworld 1on1 Aerowalk Tourney (32 comments)
Posted by dirtbox @ 07:43 CDT, 23 July 2014 - iMsg
To keep the QuakeWorld momentum going during the summer, a series of duel tournaments have been hosted the last couple of months. We have seen people battle it out on DM2 already where a winner is soon to be crowned and the DM4 campaign just started this week. Next up is a tournament on the popular fast-paced map Aerowalk which will run in parallel with the DM4 tournament. The rules are simple; it's QuakeWorld 1on1 deathmatch and the map is Aerowalk where the winner is decided in a best of three maps series. A double-elimination bracket is used to ensure that the best Aerowalker is indeed crowned king after the gunsmoke has settled.

The registration for the tournament opened up this week with the tournament starting in around four weeks from now. There will be a 32 player limit and we will hopefully see many entertaining matches as notable signups so far include some of the absolute top players in QuakeWorld today; Norway Rikoll, Sweden Locust and Sweden Bps among others.

Hello friends,

I have an XL2411T and it rocks. I tried lightboost, wasn't a big fan. Went back to 'normal' mode and since I can't get to 144hz anymore (stays 120). If I force it in my nvidia driver it will just give me 'out of range'. Tried reinstalling the driver. I removed lightboost as on the blurrbusters faq
(To turn off LightBoost: 1. Disable the “3D Stereoscopic” checkbox in Control Panel. 2. Unplug the monitor’s power supply for 5 seconds, and then plug in again. (this clears the nVidia LightBoost unlock.))

Any ideas?

So Russia has proof it was Ukraine, and Ukraine has proof it was Russia.

So how about this.

PUT BOTH leaders of both countries on the spot, saying that whoever is proven to be found as lying by a committee of experts in a PUBLIC TRIAL, will have to either back up their bags and go back to Russia, or give up that part of the Ukraine to Russia.

The beauty of it is, whoever is lying will either be exposed as being so, OR will have to pull out of the bet and will face further condemnation and doubt throughout the world. And there is nothing like a babies brain splattered all over the run away to hit home.

Simple but very effective and the only person that would not think so is the person who knows they are lying.

Its a win win.

Proof must be conclusive, or its null and void. Even if one of the leaders goes back on their word, they'll face so much negative PR it won't be worth either of them doing so.

If only this was Quaek - ESPN & $11m (97 comments)
Posted by *b0se @ 09:52 CDT, 21 July 2014 - iMsg
ESPN to air DOTA2 championships.

$5m, yes MILLION, 1st prize. $1.4m 2nd, $1m 3rd.

All the way down to $22.5K for 13th and 14th place.

Made me rolf after hearing 'swag' being thrown around in the QuakeCon presentation.

Straight after watching the QCon14 finals (a combination of incredible speed, accuracy, skill (aim), prediction and strategy - all at a ridiculously fast and compressed pace), I found myself on the Twitch DOTA2 channel out of curiosity.


There is no comparison. As hyped as the casters get, not much really happens. It's like comparing a slow drumbeat to a finger melting guitar solo from Joe Bonamassa.

ID - look at this. Look what is capable in the gaming world. Look what you could be earning.

Steam could be the start of something insanely good; it's a goldmine for player base and advertising reach/power. I'm not saying it has to reach this level, but heck, even 1/5th of the way and it's a huge success.

*Could be*.

Should. Quake is a high octane battle, which is exactly what this culture loves to watch (think sport, films and TV. Christ, even magazines!). Quake and it's players deserve this kind of recognition.


EDIT: This is not about Quake vs DOTA2, it's about what Quake could be.

How to add exes to win8.1 mousefix easy (5 comments)
Posted by Conditioned @ 00:48 CDT, 21 July 2014 - iMsg
So windows 8.1 has a little quirk that due to adjusting how mouse input works with very high resolution displays a lot of people have experienced problems with mouselag. .

The good news is that Microsoft released a fix for it, the bad that you have to add the game (or whatever) executables to the registry manually to adopt the mousefix for them. Apparently this doesn´t do anything to games with raw input.

This little fix makes it so you only have to right click on the exe´s to add them to the registry. Thought I´d share it since I find it pretty sweet and I haven´t seen it anywhere else. Full credit to dreamss on blurbusters forums:

download and copy exes to c:\windows\
save this as mousefixcontext.reg and run it

Low profile mechanical keyboards? (22 comments)

On the hunt for a new keyboard. From what I've briefly read there aren't any low profile mechanical ones due to size of switches, but I would still like to ask if any of you have any ideas or suggestions.

Can't stand the ghosting - can't stand the high profile ones.

Quake live shirts (36 comments)
Posted by CMSS @ 11:48 CDT, 20 July 2014 - iMsg
Is there anywhere that i can buy a shirts with a quake logo on it [like on of these ( ) - first row 4th across / 4th row 2nd across ]

I found this;

Which is really nice, but it will cost me $30 / £17.56 for it and that is too much for me, $15 / £8.78 was a great price.

+ I dont want to make a shirt with a logo on that because sites i have seen which you design your own shirt, you can see the printed black area which has the design on and it does not look good at all.

If you are on Windows 8.1 and a Fatal1ty motherboard to overclock your mouse polling rate, don't install the optional updates: kb2967917 or kb2962409
If you install either one, your mouse will be stuck at 125hz. Hopefully saves someone some stress.

Amazing players (like K1llsen and avek) can't keep with the grind of QLive because the returns are so small. These talents practice so much for the chance at such a small winnings purse. Then we give 30k to these morons in the audience just for being there? I am really upset, confused, and frankly just bewildered at the entire post-duel ceremony stuff.

NO SPOILERS QuakeCon coverage (14 comments)
Posted by rayu @ 21:55 CDT, 19 July 2014 - iMsg
Due to very unfortunate events for the first time I can't watch QuakeCon live.

While it breaks my heart, I'd still love to catch up on the event without ruining it for me with spoilers. It's hard enough not to get my daily dose of ESR comment reading already.

So, is there a source where I can watch all the matches in a chronological order, without giving away who won, or who advanced to the groups, let alone won the whole thing?

I'd be really grateful for that.

If there is another thread already, sorry. Didn't look on purpose not to see some "congratz strenx for firing dkt" thread :)

I know this is ESR, but please no spoilers here guys... I'm sure some others would appreciate as well. Thanks!

Build Quality of WMO and Intellimouse (6 comments)
Posted by Syndicat3 @ 08:21 CDT, 19 July 2014 - iMsg

I play FPSs like CS:GO and the CoD games.

I have a G400 that I recently repaired and I'm looking for a backup mouse— either the WMO or Intellimouse 3 on eBay from seller dacheng2009.


What is the build quality of these mice today? Do they typically break in a year or two? The Steelseries Intellimouse 3.0 looks cool, but the $12.95/free shipping WMO looks like a steal.

I've spent months researching mice and I've come to the conclusion that to me, these great mice like the FK, AM, and EC1/EC2 from Zowie, the Deathadder, the G502, etc... all aren't worth it considering the price.

Why is DaHanG so awesome ? (98 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 06:54 CDT, 19 July 2014 - iMsg
This is just a random thread to say how much DaHanG is an awesome player, because there's not enough DaHanG worship in ESR imo.

- Lives in the USA where the duel scene is supposed to be stale.

- Practices against the same (but skilled) guys all the time.

- Always do good at international events for many years now, placing 3rd, 2nd here and there.

- Impressive skill overall when on form.

- Never heard of him whining or making any drama or excuses, just loses and keeps the frustration for himself.

- Always cool in interviews, seems like a relaxed and humble man, and easy to talk too.

- Has already beaten all tops on LAN, has beaten rapha, evil and Cypher in groupstage this QCON 2014.

- etc.

So, DaHanG, good luck in the final against Cypher and I hope you will keep your calm on the scene ! I like Cypher but I think you deserve a title for your career.

tl;dr = DaHanG <3

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.
