This was asked for months and they do it 3 days before Quakecon?

Strange decision, lots of players will be mad and deservely so, its a huge change in champs balance.

Av3k is back on track - Signs with Virtus Pro (42 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 17:39 BST, 21 August 2017 - iMsg
"After the reveal that Belarus Cypher won’t be able to attend QuakeCon 2017, Virtus.pro decided to find equally talented player to represent our organisation during the tournament. Managing crew was scouting the scene, trying to find the best match for our current players. Candidate's rich professional history, high current form and motivation determined our decision. As a result, Virtus.pro signed another legend Poland Maciej "Av3k" Krzykowski.


Despite him being a relatively young player, Av3k’s carrier is older than some of our fans. He started his gaming adventure from a very early age and quickly secured the title of one of the most recognisable Quake players.

Among such stars as Cooller and Cypher, Maciej has reached top ranks multiple times during international tournaments. In fact, not only was Av3k one of the Cypher’s lifetime rivals, but he also happened to be his teammate a couple times. We can call it a love-hate relationship. At least for the next year, these two are bound together under the VP's name."

Posted by Aux @ 14:53 BST, 20 August 2017 - iMsg
I think my small companion app for QC players is ready for prime time finally. It is called QC World and is available on Play Store. Its features are:

* Regularly updated list of news about the game.
* Regularly updated list of upcoming events and tournaments (current sources are QCon, ESL and 125FPS).
* Champion information.
* Weapon information.
* Collection of links to official and fan made resources, forums and streamer channels on Twitch and YT.
* Collection of video tutorials for new players by various youtubers.
* Item timer for new players, who struggle with timing their items.

Great experience with QuakechampionsPRO duel tournament (2 comments)
Posted by CAREEM @ 03:06 BST, 20 August 2017 - iMsg
I was having great experience with QuakechampionsPRO duel tournament!

There were max 74 viewers but all were so nice and engaging. I mean everyone was so happy about the tournament that participated. Even tho I did everything by myself and they didnt bother about some stuff that was missing. They even told me to talk at least something on stream as I didnt do commentatory cos of no experience and not great English. I was also affraid to lose viewers, but still after saying first few words ppl responded and started with conversation.

Im not gonna provide links of paypal or something similar to collect donations for future tournaments I will try to do all out of my pocket, but all weekly duels will not have prizes. Maybe 1-3 x per month I will give something. Reason why im not doing this is because of people like balkanfm - some Slovenian guy who is mentally sick or jaleous so he bring things up like im asking people for money which is not true and some other shit. So far I gave all from my pocket and I have donated tons of money to streamers like zlive, noctis, cooller, k1llsen, cypher,.. Some viewers have seen this live, but still after seeing live they started with shit like Im gonna charge money back which never happend. However, currently Im limited with the money as I bought myself a new car + Im renovating my apartment, but still I will be able to give at least some prizes.

Next cup will be this weekend (Friday 25.8) without any prizes will be just fun tournament and there is a lot of people who just want to be part of the tournament no matter if there are any prizes or not which motivate me to do this on weekly basis. Im really happy about seeing spartie and raisy in my tournament, but not only that. They were happy that they could participate and they were extremely nice to me.

PS: Today I got instead of 1-2 viewers 10-15 / 20 viewers when I was playing pub games in QC. So for me personally this is a great improvement. With "give aways" I did nothing but just had ppl on my stream to collect the money, but making tournaments help me a lot and im really thankful who join, watch follow and enjoy in my company.

Artisan mousepads producer huge interview (12 comments)
Posted by XPEHOPE3 @ 16:22 BST, 19 August 2017 - iMsg
Toshihiro Kobayashi was interviewed a year ago, in Japanese http://www.4gamer.net/games/102/G010223/20160807001/

Google translate does a decent job but only if presented with copied interview text, not the link. Link translation results in more poor translation, but with correct formatting.

Contents (in no particular order):
- business origins (2-3 people involved, Japanese-engineered materials searched through factories, no pads were good and are good now, it's just Artisan's are better)
- "plans" on visiting DreamHack to present the pads
- slightest touch possible upon quake vs counter-strike vs overwatch
- lots of rants about QcK and it's undeserved success
- some rants about Zowie mice
- e-sports mouse pads are NOT meant to last and are compared to Formula 1 tires
- problems with production and factory yields, especially Shiden-kai (producer wanted to abandon the model, but the sales insisted there were fans around the world, factory gone bankrupt, new shiden-kai pads would probably have another feel due to machinery fail)
- new product in development is advertised: a "rubber" base part + several replaceable glide parts sold together so that the customers could try combinations to see what suits them most. Also when the glide part wears off one would be able to replace just that, not the "rubber" base.
- will not try to produce mice, producing anything new to PC market is high risk low reward

Dont Boycott Quakecon 2017: Update (88 comments)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 12:45 BST, 18 August 2017 - iMsg
EDIT: Zero4 and Willits just announced that due to my heavy influence in the community there will be a QC EU event in 4th quarter of this year, part invitational and part qualifier, and Cypher/Agent are the first two invites. Thanks id.

Theres only one way we can send a big fuck you to id/zero4 with all the sneaky things they have done, first with the late announced EU regionals seed system, and then "losing" the paperwork that Agent sent timely and ending with a visa letter with his surname misspelled and no plane tickets information, i mean how much disrespectful the situation is? Im far from an Agent fan, but he won his place and put the hard work in. Also Cypha out, the stronger quakecon player in history next to Rapha. Thats 2 of the best QC players in the world out ffs.

Lets Boycott Failcon 2017, make those view numbers plummet, so they realize they need to get their shit together because we are a community that support our icons.

Quake Con 2017 PREDICTIONS (55 comments)
Posted by Klijngsor @ 11:37 BST, 18 August 2017 - iMsg
Make Quakecon Predictions here!

Ok, so I didn't watch any QC except 20 mins. of strenx' stream vs. Cooller, so kill me for not knowing what I talk about, but judging from previous Quake Competitions, you can predict that the big names are making it far and winning the thing.

I don't think an underdog will win; but then again it's QC, which is the most underdog friendly ARENAFPS ever, because of the round system, champions ability, which makes the game somewhat random at times; so there is the a very high upset probability.

Still: My predictions:

Rapha:
If Rapha has enough time to practice, he will always place top 3, because he is the most self-reflexive player there is - he knows his weak spots and will eradicate them in training. (Also he puts the lord first).

Cooller:
Cooller looks as strong as he can be. (Judging by watching 20 mins. of strenx-stream)

Predictions:
1. Rapha; 2. Cooller: 100%

Maybe the matchup won't happen, because they rob us of that final because of seedings or single elims: -10%

However it's QC and not QL/Q3 so there is a factor of randomness present: -20%

Q.E.D.: Rapha vs. Cooller in finals 70% confirmed.

But what about the other players: The other CIS contenders had to struggle with bad teams, that didn't support them Av3k, Cypher, I think? Which is very bad for their psyche - also: have they really sorted their stuff out? It doesn't look like it, and for me that is a huge part of the game: again: Rapha so self aware, and on top of his emotions, that he is able to put out his best performance pretty much every time

The other CIS players have a bad start as well: Agent (not attending prolly), Evil have all sorts of troubles which is bad for morale.

What about the eternal EU-3rd-7th placers? Most of them are not really training for duel e.g. fazz. K1llsen will have the best spot at making it far as is strenx. But they won't be contending for the first place.

Newcomers? You tell me, I didn't watch QC a lot, but please don't tell me that one of the guys, who has been playing quake for ages or decades (and never won anything big) and qualified, because of that merit and decided to take it half seriously will have a chance of an upset. US players? Well I doubt anyone besides Rapha has a chance - it's impossible to judge their performance anyways, since the level of play, I would guess must be so much worse, than CIS/EU. (Same for Asia/ AUS or S.Africa)

Maybe an outsider/newcomer will have a chance, but I don't really know them. You tell me! I think in the EU Qualifier they talked of a CS:GO Player Dreamer or smth. he won against tox, I believe?

TL;DR: Maybe someone, who actually plays and watches the game will chime in and make some predictions, which aren't entirely based on affection!

Well I didn't know if I want to watch that QWC, now I have a reason to forget that tourney at all. GL to Cooller and Rapha. It's gonna be easy for them.

VQ3/QL without the railgun (3 comments)
Posted by azxx @ 09:41 BST, 17 August 2017 - iMsg
Could the VQ3/QL gameplay style work without the rail? Or is the rocket/rail/lightning trinity too holy?

Would removing the rail, but keeping everything else as it is (movement, other weapons, map design, etc), affect the game negatively? Would doing so 'break' something about how the game plays?

I am very keen on trying out how it would be. The maps don't have to be like Lost World or House of Decay, and the game doesn't have to play like QW or CPM. How would Blood Run and Furious Heights play out under VQ3/QL without the rail?

Would the combat be more interesting? Would it motivate players to make aggressive moves within their map strategies more often?

I can't see a change in the rail damage value to be interesting; anything besides heavy damage defeats the point of the rail's mechanics.
Making the recharge slower is better than changing damage, I think, but it still keeps the rail in the game and would probably only reduce the assistance from the rail, not eliminate it.

For a weapon that can be quite influential, it is very intuitive to use. It might be why it's use (and abuse) seems to be quite common on the low/medium levels of skill.

With such ease of use, I believe its ability to ruin tactical attempts is too high a cost. I am sure many of you have been in matches where you'd be out of control, spend minutes building up to a decent stack, then try to get to a favorable situation to fight the opponent....only to have the entire effort and build up be destroyed by the opponent hitting 2 rails or so and shutting down your possibility for a comeback. The opponent sat at a comfortable distance, barely dipping their toes into any combat, and ruined momentum you worked a lot for.

The momentum of the match going back and forth between players, contested at a satisfying pace, would add great value to the vibe of both playing and spectating. A player in the lead, in complete control, pacman-ing all items and having enough weapons, should still constantly feel the slow clawing of their losing opponent, in both the fights as well as the mental game.

Can someone with a deeper understanding and/or more experience shed some light here? Are there any obvious flaws that I am missing out? Personally, I'd like to see this happen in Diabotical, but I don't know what the end vision for that game is.
I would love to hear what 2GD and DDK think about this (and maybe even some pro players) but I doubt I can get their attention.

QC duel Tournament (6 comments)
Posted by CAREEM @ 02:24 BST, 17 August 2017 - iMsg
Ive been thinking to make a tournament to win a new Zowie FK2. Yeah I know I was already talking about monthly tournament with prize money but negative reaction of ESR comminuty dismotivated me to spend any money for this. When I started streaming I was having weekly giving awayl 10€ or 20€ but that didnt help to get more followers or viewers. People just came for giveaway to claim funds so this time I was thinking to make a tournament for a mouse that I bought and is without any use. Mouse is worth 60€ + 1 or 2 years of warranty Im not sure about that. Lets see reaction and if I get an admin for this we can make this happen this weekend or next.

Please let me know and yeah I expect negative comments again as this is ESR community, but hopefully I will get some good respond to to motivate me and actually make tournament to win FK2. I think its still better than throwing away again on twitch giveaway which has no use.

Greetings,

now that Quake Live has been effectively shelved and (presumably) the purpose of reducing LG damage to 6 was to help newcomers integrate into the game by spamming rockets, could we have it back to 7 please?

It's especially annoying considering they've reverted it back to 7 in Champions!

ESPN: Can Quake make a comeback? (47 comments)
Posted by TUMULT @ 15:27 BST, 15 August 2017 - iMsg
ESPN published an interesting article about our new lovely game. Does Quake Champions has place in esport today and in future? Will viewers want to watch a super fast battle between Dinosaur and a Robot over and over again? Is 1 million bucks in price money for just one single World Championships enough?

Here's the story:

http://www.espn.co.uk/esports/story/_/id/20345096/quake-champions-quake-make-comeback

Quake is distinct because no other game is as fast. It's the F-1 racing of the first-person shooter genre. ... We see a long, healthy road with this game, and we're taking this very seriously as an esport.
- Matt Charles, senior producer at id Software for Quake Champion

There are also mentions on such veterans as Makaveli and quotes coming from Rapha.

Comment below and let us know what do you think: Yes or No or Cooller?

Does anyone here pick characters in QC based purely on liking the character? I am guessing most players would play the meta, which in theory would be the wiser choice.

After seeing changes to Clutch over time, and ID saying Clutch is not OP based on "their data", I am guessing we will see more such occurrences with regards to balancing in the future.

I think it is agreeable to not give in to early responses and giving the player base some time after a patch to see how they use/develop counters. Though at the same time going purely by data is not wise because there's a good chance it's not giving the full picture, and especially if the data does not make the distinction between trends/results amongst different skill classes.

I was wondering how viable not playing the meta would be, especially at the higher skill levels. I know it doesn't have to be either one of the two, and that players could mix preferences with meta choices.

This video kind of explains:



As we get closer to release, it will be interesting to see which style QC leans towards:

1) There are no hard counters, and character selection works somewhat as described in the video. Certain play elements/strategies may saturate and become 'rule of thumb' for a while, until a player does something new and finds success. This may happen less often but come across as more striking when it happens.

2) Everything revolves around the meta that changes based on patches, done intentionally or unintentionally, bringing some 'artificial' meta with short-lived strategies. This often remains under the guise of keeping the game fresh but can ultimately affect player success by a sort of trend of 'which characters do the devs like this season'.

I think QC will lean towards (1) just by the nature of the game. Although ID is capable of some absurdities, if Ubisoft got things right with Rainbow 6 Siege then maybe ID can too. Then again, R6 Siege started off with a good foundation in this regard, and isn't affected as much by fundamentals like health/armor levels.

Would be interesting to hear others' thoughts.

New Champion ideas (71 comments)
Posted by CAREEM @ 19:32 BST, 11 August 2017 - iMsg
There will be ofcourse more champions and I came with an idea with new champion.

Champion:

Tank

It could be ORBB or LUCY

* Max armor 100 - max HP 125 - big hitbox (has to be tested)

* Speed medium

* Normal movement + wall jumps (as nyx)

* Ability: Fire bolt something as in Q2 BFG, when splash - radius very close about 10m distance. Ability should slow down your opponent fire rate and movement should be slower. That could be a good counter for smaller and fast champions as anarki and nyx.

What do you think? Do you have any other ideas for new champions?

The crowdfunding campaign will launch on August 20th. There has been some good feedback from previous videos posted here about the project, let me know what you think. This is a solo development project and I'm hoping that with successful funding I will be able to bring in a team to develop it into a release quality game.

It will be released via Steam, for Windows and Linux, and is being developed in Unreal Engine 4.

Another interview with Cypher from Mediamarkt Lan (1 comment)
Posted by casper_kk @ 06:36 BST, 7 August 2017 - iMsg
Hi all, here is another translation of interview with Cypher taken at MediaMarkt LAN in Moscow.

The video with interview is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcKx4S5o45U



- Can you describe your impressions of the new Quake. What are differences, what's good and what's bad?

- Well, the game is very raw, lets start with this, so I wont be talking about the bad things yet. The good is - new champion system, abilities system, it brought some interesting new additions to the game, well, modernizing Quake to catch up with current games.

- How long do you play Quake?

- Well, I started with Quake 3 in the beginning, I was 10 or 11, my brother was Belarusian Quake Champion so I started to play looking at him. And i was inspired to win tournaments and to the age of 15 I played really hard and started playing professional at 16. Now I'm 27, so it's more than ten years already.

- It comes out that you're one of those guys who remember that most popular Quake that was massively played at computer clubs...

- Yeah, sure

- And you don't mind they trying to make hero-shooter of arena-shooter?

- If it makes Quake popular, I'm not against anything

- Which of the old mechanics are still in the game? Is the speed the same as it was, how are weapons feel?

- In that case they decided to unite all the dynamics and physics of all previous Quakes, so if you want, you can choose different characters with different physics, some faster, some slower, having more HP but less speed etc. Well they trying to balance the champions, so those aspects are all positive.

= What can you say about maps?

- We have two old maps and two new ones in duel, i hope that only new maps will be played and the old ones would be left in archive.

- Now the question about Virtus Pro. Tell your impressions, how did you come to the game, what are you expecting from your cooperation, what plans do you have?

- Well, new Quake was announced as well as 1 million dollar tournament in august at QuakeCon, the players and organisations new that already, but the official announcment was needed. I had conversations with american teams, they were first to contact me, then general manager of Virtus Pro and we both came to agreement that i need to sign them. So from that point I'm on positive wave. I was the member of many teams, and now I'm in VP and i see how people here are obsessed with it, very strong organisation, strong inside.

- If it's not a secret, why did you choose russian team over american?

- Well, maybe 5 years ago I would 100% choose some foreign organisation, but looking at things VP do, how they develop e-sports in CIS an in the world, I want to be part of it and develop the thing here in CIS, and not in America.

- What's your favorite hero now?

- I think Slash

- Blitz. Mega or Red Armor?

- Depends on hero.

- DM6 or ZTN3DM1?

- DM6

- Rocket or Rail?

- Rocket

Coollers reaction to the seedings etc (145 comments)
Posted by skint @ 22:27 BST, 6 August 2017 - iMsg
Edit: ntE has translated more of what cooller has said in this comment and it makes more sense.

This is google translate so obviously not completely accurate but still. The guy who first brought this to my attention on Discord has since disappeared and his comments vanishing with him, I can only presume that someone got to him. RIP info guy

https://www.cybersport.ru/news/cooller-o-kval...se-delayut

Anton "Cooller" Xinggov criticized the organization of the European qualification for the Quake World Championship 2017 and reported on problems with the visa in the US for players from the CIS. Player Natus Vincere answered questions from ZERGTV after the match for entering the World Cup.

"I am very dissatisfied with [those], as they all do. And not even from the point of view of the organization, but in terms of how to be such a moron, to give 12 slots to the CIS and Europe. This is a complete game. Contempt.
I have a question: [why] is sitting there ZeRo4 ? A person knows perfectly well who plays where and where, nobody knows any nicknames, all the players-he himself played with them all.
But I talked to him and said: "Well, take it, make 16 slots, I do not know, 20 slots." He: "No, we are principled: it's a test tournament, now everything will remain the same as we announced, and nothing will change." How could I make such a grid so that I would play with Evil in the first round, Av3k played with StreNx in the first round? I have suspicions that this happened not randomly. That they deliberately do it. It should not be like this.
In general, I think that they should have made direct invites to some people. To call there, for example, Rapha , Cypher and a few more people. Me, maybe. We really, a pancake, we sweat on how much years already for their game, we do any ????. You could just take direct invites. And do not soar your brain to anyone. There Toxjq with AGENT play for the quota. Well, what is it? ".

About BYOC-Qualification on QuakeCon "Evil has a BYOC slot. Who is there for evil is sick, he will go BYOC to play, most likely. And there is a visa. [Slot] had to buy. Slot means that you come with your computer to this open area, you connect and play. Here he bought a place there. Naturally, I do not think that it will be direct his comp. He has some friends there who will just give him a play, and that's it. " On problems with visas for players from the CIS "It was Xron , Cypher , AGENT . For me personally, their trip to America is questionable, because they all have an open question with the visa. Even at Cypher. He tries to solve in every way and, naturally, Virtus.pro is trying to help him in every possible way. But it's not a fact that it will be solved. "

myztro reveals team (54 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 15:26 BST, 6 August 2017 - iMsg

Newly established UK based esports organisation Myztro gaming has revealed their Quake Champions roster via a short but sweet YouTube video.

The Lineup Consists Of...
United Kingdom Gareth "Garpy" Marshall
Netherlands Sander "Voo" Kaasjager
United Kingdom Aaron "Hell" Jones
Portugal Gaspar "Hypno" Machado
United Kingdom Xavier 'Zoot' Dhorne

Myztro Gamings team manager, United Kingdom David "Zaccubus" Treacy, had this to say:
"You have no idea how happy and proud I am to be able to announce our Quake Champions Roster. We have some of the very best Arena Shooter talent, multiple world champions and arguably the best known voice in Quake, Zoot... Myself and the rest of the guys at Myztro Gaming have talked about possibly setting up an org for a very long time and with the recent resurgence of the Arena Shooters in esports, it was an oppertunity we could not let slide."

For the sake of competition, help Agent get to Quakecon (67 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 12:46 BST, 6 August 2017 - iMsg
"According to Agent, he has a recently renewed passport, and he wrote to Syncerror and Zero4 repeatedly about an invitation, but got only one response quite recently from Zero4, asking for details what were already sent.

He didn't book an interview at the US embassy because he didn't know if he's going, and with current situation booking is almost impossible. So his only chance now is some help from ESL and/or id. Which is unlikely. To add to all of that, Agent's main source of income (sports betting) is quite unstable and can be a hurdle during the interview.

Also, side story of Agent and his LAN attendance (as told by him on his streams, with my opinions and if I'm remembering all that correctly). Some time around 2010-2011 he wanted to git gud at quake and win something. He was training constantly and already had some online and LAN top placements. So at some point he had a deal with M5 gaming organisation that they will support him going at Quakecon 2011. He got a foreign travel passport and was ready to go, placing a lot of effort in training. But less than month before the event M5 suddenly kicked him out, taking Cooller instead. M5 managers just said something like "Sorry, Cooller is a bigger name than you". That was the tilt moment for Agent, and he doesn't get anything e-sports related seriously since then. Also he says that all those rumours about him not having a foreign travel passport are untrue. Time checks out, btw, he could get a 5-year travel passport in 2011 and he could renew it with a 10-year travel passport in 2016 or 2017.

Some may dislike Agent, but there is unfortunately a big possibility that he will be unable to participate at Quakecon. He has quite a personality, he's objectively one of the top contender, he can be a great drama generator, and without him Quakecon will definitely be more dull, leaving us, viewers, at a loss."

New Quake WR - sub12! (3 comments)
Posted by skint @ 19:16 BST, 4 August 2017 - iMsg
Sweden Jukebox has set a new world record for Quake 1 speedrunning and smashing the old record by nearly 30 seconds, finishing in 11:57! This is the first time someone has ran a sub 12 minute run. Finland Elgu set the previous record nearly 2 years ago of 12:25 which itself was just 1 second faster than Finland Kukkye run a few months earlier.



https://www.speedrun.com/Quake

Edit: I made an error, never thought about if the previous record was by the same person as the current holder it wouldn't show that time on the leaderboards so Jukebox was in fact improving his own time from less than a year ago.

Graphics issue. (5 comments)
Posted by nutmeg @ 17:02 BST, 3 August 2017 - iMsg
Hi.

I have an issue with my new build. It has a GTX1060 6GB card and when playing QL the FPS in the corner is not stable. It is cycling very extremely fast between 125 and 117. This is in contrast to my other system which has an iris pro 5200 (integrated graphics) where 125 is stable in the corner of the screen.

I am also getting a bit of shimmer with the 1060 when in spec mode moving side to side in the arena more so that the iris pro.

Any thoughts?

Another interview with Cooller from Mediamarkt Lan (7 comments)
Posted by casper_kk @ 17:01 BST, 3 August 2017 - iMsg
You can watch it here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXhEqBWTJKM

- How did you get to NaVi, did you have any other variants?

- I got there as usual, by conversation with NaVi. I considered some proposals from different teams, wont name them now, many of them, but NaVi for me is the best choice not only because of their terms, thogh they were good, but because the team is closer to me.

- Cheering for them?

- Well I often coomunicate with the team from the time of their founding. Considering they repsresent CIS region, it suits me best.

- Did doreign teams also tried to contract you?

- Yeah, sure.

- Can you tell about Quake Champions, you impressions from the point of huge expirience. Whaat did they try to save, what new things they brought, what good and what not good yet?

- Well, i think that idea of creating variety of characters with dofferent abilities is 100% actual and promising. Duel mode will be one of the most popular, I think. I'm not pleased with development as a whole, because it's too slow. I have some expirience in gamedev, and I have some clue how that must be done, the speed of updates, upgrade of the game, and now im not seeing the level wich I would like to see. That's my only concern today.

- Any plusses?

- I said already - characters, duel mode, many severs, different settings which allow every player to set up their gaming profile individually, for me it's essential. The game is demanding enough for the hardware, you need to upgrade your rig, or you need to have a descent one already. Also i would like to admit that the game is free, it's not critical, but it's a definitely plus. Potential players dont need to spend a coin for the game, in comparison to Overwatch, which costs 2000 roubles, for CIS region its significant amount of money for players of lower age.

- Have you any favourite hero already?

- Well, I can't pick one, usually all the pros have some pool of heroes they prefer not in terms of "like" or "don't like", but how it technically suit thir style of play. My pool is Nyx, Ranger, Visor, Clutch, Scalebearer, that's all. I prefer characters with mechanics from standard Quake (means Q3), I don't like Anarki, Sorlag, which both use CPMA physics. But Clutch is not typical, i had to learn how to play him, because he's currntly actual. He is very strong, his ability and speed combined make him a top tier in comparison with others, so i have and I will to play him.

- It sounds like you dont want to play him.

- Well, at the start i didn't want to, I didn't like him. He is big, has huge hitbox, he catches every shot fired, do he recieves much damage, and it's hard to play when every shot hits you. But when he was fixed and boosted movement-wise, having fast charging shiekd ability which blocks incoming damage, after that he becamr pretty descent character.

- I got it. In the end three short questions. Mega or red Armor?

- It's situational, but i prefer armor.

- DM6 or ZTN?

- DM6 for now.

- Rocket or Rail?

- Rocket.

It seems that one from Xron, Luminus, Brejk and Demon will pass from the winner bracket, with just 2 wins (this is a huge chance for all of them... u hear me Demon? :P). At the same time, only one from Cooller, evil, strenx and av3k (group of death extreme edition) will pass, without visiting the loser bracket... what a draw...

Zowie by benQ mice and dpi steps (12 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 00:27 BST, 3 August 2017 - iMsg
Ok, so, since all the latest zowie mice got the same sensor and same sensor implementation as well as the same dpi steps levels, and since the sensor is "raw" 3310 (one of the latest sensor ever released), I'm tempted to think and ask myself "what would be the perfect dpi step, in term of snappiness/responsiveness/accuracy/'low inputlag'?".

I heard many times already that the 3310 sensor and above (3360/3366 etc) doesn't have any "native" dpi step, which basically means that it will work the same at ANY dpi step. Not sure about "jitters" at very high dpi settings though (basically any values above 2000dpi).

The dpi steps are 400dpi, 800dpi, 1600dpi and finally 3200dpi.
From my own experience, 3200dpi with ultra high sens (1-3cm/360°) feels snappy enough without any "jitterness"; 400dpi with low sens (26cm/360°, sensitivity 4 ingame, basically the current cooller's sens settings) just feels right too, except that ofc compared to high sens it feels slower, not less responsive, just slower (which is 200% logical considering it's a low sens); 800dpi with medium sens (~20cm/360°), there again, the mouse just peforms as you would expect it to do, it's responsive, good feeling, no "jitter", everything seems fine; and finally my current settings 1600dpi sens 1.8 ingame (14.4cm/360°), the settings i feel most comfortable with.

So basically, I tried pretty much every settings but failed at finding even the slight difference(s) between all those settings in term of "input lag"/"smoothing"/"snappiness" etc.
When people said 3310 sensor just performs the same at any dpi step, I tend to think it's true, from, like I said, my own experience but also the multiple threads etc I found on the internet. However, I'm no god when it comes to technical stuffs regarding mice, ofc I know the basics and further, but that's all. And I'm still asking myself "if I didn't find any notable differences, is it because I'm unable and not sensitive enough to "feel" them, or is it because there are obviously no notable differences at all?".

One last thing that makes me have doubts, is that pretty much all the pro players (be it CS:GO or Overwatch or Quake) use either 400dpi or 800dpi. Is it simply because they feel they don't need more dpi and/or they are using low sensitivities, or is it because actually these 2 dpi steps work the best with any zowie mice, in comparison to 1600dpi and 3200dpi ?

I'm worried because I might actually use the wrong dpi step (1600) just because I might fail at finding any noticeable difference(s) between 400, 800 or 1600 (like I'm not sensitive enough).

TL;DR do all 3310 zowie mice perform the same at all dpi steps (400, 800, 1600, 3200), or is it better to use them (the mice) at either 400dpi or 800dpi, if you want best responsiveness/snappiness/accuracy/etc ? TL;DR

QuakeJS - Quake3 with CPMA mod ported to Javascript (25 comments)
Posted by aiken @ 16:00 BST, 1 August 2017 - iMsg
No launcher. No web browser plug-in. Working Quake3: CPMA port to web based environment is up and running. Notes from the author:
QuakeJS is a port of ioquake3 to JavaScript with the help of Emscripten.
This project started to demonstrate the feasibility of browser-based gaming, and what better way than with a classic game whose core gameplay revolves around the kind of responsive APIs that are available with HTML5 today.

QWC EU & NA regionals live drawing today - patch on thursday (153 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 09:55 BST, 1 August 2017 - iMsg
This info was given several days ago on the ESL Quake discord and was still not advertised.

Today at 18.00CEST there will be a livestream with United Kingdom Jake 'Mustard' Neal and United Kingdom Ryan 'Ketchup' Neal from the ESL Studio. They will be drawing the seeds and matchups to come for the Quake World Championships Regional Finals for both EU and NA

Quote :

A bracket draw for the EU and NA Regional Finals of the Quake World Championships will be streamed Tuesday, August 1st, at 18:00 CEST/9am PDT on twitch.tv/quakechampions.

The full list of teams and players can be found here: https://play.eslgaming.com/quake/global/quake...nship-2017

The bracket draw will happen in from the ESL UK studio and will be done by United Kingdom Ryan "Ketchup" Neal and United Kingdom Jake "Mustard" Neal.

Seeding pools will be based on time of qualification - duel players and sacrifice teams who qualified through the earlier online qualifiers will get a higher seed while players and teams who made it through later on will get a lower seed.


As a sidenote, it was speculated yesterday evening that there could be a patch this Thursday that should 'fix' the RL hit registration and bring changes to Clutch. See here what we could gather on the new incoming patch :

QuakeLive Duel TV. Sources (No comments)
Posted by sesen @ 08:22 BST, 1 August 2017 - iMsg
Since, at the moment, I do not have the ability to support the automatic streaming project Quake Live, and given the increasing popularity of Quake Champions, I decided to post the source of the project.

What do I need to start?

For the server part you need a hosting/server with support for php and mysql. Expand the archive on the server, in the file qltv.php we configure the connection to the database.

The client part is unzipped in STEAM_DIR\steamapps\workshop\content\282440\

We open the file bundle.js in the editor, in lines # 51047 and # 51059 instead of http://YOUR_SERVER/qltv.php we register our server.

Running QL with the parameters +set fs_webpath .\..\..\workshop\content\282440\web +set com_hunkmegs "256" +set cg_followkiller "1"

A button "Stream" appears in the menu with servers. After clicking, the game itself will find the server with players who have the highest ELO. Then everything goes in automatic mode. The game will search for servers and switch between them.

Important. Every approximately 18 hours (depending on the computer) the game will hang. With this, unfortunately, there is nothing to be done.
