Hide the weapon in overwatch ? (28 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 15:08 CDT, 23 May 2016 - iMsg
Anyone knows if it will be possible to hide the gun in future OW patches ? Or at least having the possibility to make it at the center or left of the screen ?

I'm asking that because it's possible to hide the gun in games like the new Unreal Tournament, Team Fortress 2, the new DOOM etc...

And considering that they plan to make the sensitivity slider more "precise" and that you can already change your FOV and crosshair, why not more weapons configurations in future patches ?

My thoughts about the new Doom game. (14 comments)
Posted by kapca @ 14:30 CDT, 23 May 2016 - iMsg
I clocked in more than 20 hours (which is sadly a high number for me nowadays), so here is my opinion.

Letís get over with the multiplayer first: Itís awful! Itís so bad it literally hurts! Whoever made it with the moduls, the DLCs, and the whatevers, they can go and die in a fire as far as Iím concerned, because itís shit.

The single player is a different thing tho.
- Yes the graphics is pretty far from being a technical marvel in 2016. It's static and it will age badly because of the low res megatextures.
- Yes itís repetitive, and you gonna do the same thing over and over again until the end
- Yes itís the same bad story telling again from id
- Yes the enemies are stupid, and there are not enough of them
- etc.

But,
- Itís beautiful and itís fast (on a modern system)
- The weapons and the responsiveness feels so good, itís like kissing tits: It doesnít matter how many times you do it, it never gets old (e.g.: <3 plasmagun).
- There is actually a nice story this time, but who cares, when you have awesome weapons and enough ammo.
- The enemies are indeed stupid sadly, but Nightmare is challenging enough to keep you busy and smiling.

I hated Doom 3 and Quake 4 and I was sure that this one will be bad too, but I was wrong. While it's nothing like the original Doom was (sadly), this new Doom SP is not bad at all and it was great fun for me tbh. Now all we need is some new campaigns, online coop and lots of enemies modded in:)

ps.: Oh and again, whoever did the multiplayer: please die!

Quake may be next reboot project from id (77 comments)
Posted by Clau @ 16:06 CDT, 19 May 2016 - iMsg
Hello my fellow Quakers,


I found an article on hexus.net regarding a possible Quake reboot project from iD Software.

http://hexus.net/gaming/news/industry/92876-q...-software/

Bethesda and id Software have only just pushed the DOOM reboot out of the door Ė last Friday. Now it looks like they want another roll of the reboot dice, as a number of job vacancy adverts have appeared mentioning the Quake franchise. The ads, posted on the official Zenimax Media website, have given fresh new hope to fans of the Quake franchise hoping for a new game in the series.


Here is a quote from that advert:
id Software is looking for an Art Supervisor to work as part of a development team on legendary game properties like DOOM and QUAKE, developing custom tools and technology for the game industry's most advanced titles.

Here is the link to it:
https://jobs.zenimax.com/requisitions/view/920

What do you guys think, could this mean they are working on a new Quake? I hope so! :)

An exposition on why Quake 'failed' (53 comments)
Posted by zlr @ 19:03 CDT, 18 May 2016 - iMsg
I see a lot of people on the internet think of the oldschool shooters as 'mindless' twitch FPS games that don't require any tactics. I've seen this in vods, trailers, twitch chat over the years and it got me thinking of why Quake doesn't exist in modern gaming culture.

When those people watch team games in Quake all they see is 'people shooting stuff'. However, at every LAN event I have been to over the years, and I have been to a lot of tournaments since the early 2000's for Q3 and Q4, most I have spoken to at the events who have never seen Quake played before were very impressed by the duelers when they were up on the big screen. At many events the duelers got the crowd cheering more than the CS and RTS games did, and many people I spoke to said they found watching Quake to be the best part of the tournament. Duel is the reason why Quake is considered the pinnacle of FPS skill by non-quakers who know what they are talking about.

And to be honest, CTF and TDM tactics aren't that advanced when you consider the bigger picture in Quake, it's more about acquired CTF/TDM mode experience and being able to instinctively and habitually work well with the other 3-4 players on the team without having to communicate the overall strategy because the gameplay is so fast paced that by the time one person articulates a strategy the opportunity to apply the in depth tactical routes / teamwork / maneuvers has already gone. It is chaotic, teammates are dieing and respawning constantly and being repositioned elsewhere throughout the whole game. Compare that to CS where the casters have a whole bunch of time to talk about the overall strategy and what is going on because the game is slow enough to allow it.

I would estimate that 70-80% of what goes on in a game of CTF or TDM is not recognised by a viewer who doesn't understand the complexities of Quake, whereas with Duel it is more noticeable and the casters have more time to explain what is happening and why.

There has been a few threads on ESR trying to say why Quake has failed, Disrepute tried to blame the focus on duel as the reason, others say it's iDsoftware's fault, but so far everyone is only peeling one side off the methaphorical 'banana' that is 'why quake failed.' It's more complex than what has been discussed so far. Tennis for example shows that a 1v1 sport can be very successful where the top percentage of players in the world make an extremely good living off playing from travelling around the world competing in grand slams and smaller tournaments, and the grand slams are watched by millions of people.

So I sat down and tried to reason through why Quake has failed and get to the core reason why, and came up with the following summaries:

Increased popularity of the gaming industry: It is a fact that starting from the early 2000's most games that are massively popular are dumbed down to make them more accessible to a wider range of audiences. The more popular something is, the easier and more friendly it is to lower skilled players. Quake in its current form just does not fit into the modern gaming culture because it demands dedication, skill, determination and most relevantly lots of time and practice to get to a high level. Quake is a game for people who are competitive, but the majority of the gaming culture just want to play games to have fun by themselves or with friends or waste time on something that makes them feel good.

Inept adaption by iDsoftware: iD failed to see the trends of popular gaming, or saw it and chose to ignore it. Instead of following the trends of modern FPS of dumbing down gameplay and make it more simple, introducing experience levelling, item unlocks, achievements, ladders, etc they released games like Quake4 and thought they could just repeat the same success they had with all of their flagship games before. By the time Q4 came out the whole culture of gaming had already changed dramatically in that it wasn't just a select few 'nerds' playing it at school any more. By the time Q4 came out there was already masses of casuals getting into gaming and with all the easier and more accessible alternatives to Quake4 that was out at the time it had no chance of drawing a large number of players.

Regulated official eSports oversight: there is no governing body that decides the rules and regulations of 'electronic sports'. Anyone can throw up a website, run a tournament, and call it esports. With real life sports, going back to tennis as an exmaple, you had set rules that have been in place for years and these rules are applied globally and controlled centrally for all official tournaments. Sports have a standard that must be met by tournaments, an official ATP tennis tournament cannot simply say 'we are going to dumb down the professional game of tennis by allowing a second ball bounce so we can get more participants and make more money,' however this is what has happened in 'esports' over the years. When you consider what is an 'electronic sport' skill, Quake is a timeless skill that still hasn't been matched today in any popular modern FPS games. With a more regulated eSports body that is honest and operates on integrity and focuses purely on the most skillful forms of 'electronic' sports, Quake may have seen more success than it did for a longer period of time.

Popular gaming culture and consumerism: With the advent of popular gaming culture comes big money, big companies and consumerism. A game like Quake was made in a era before gaming was part of everyones lives in popular culture. Some of the pressures of consumerism did not have as much of a part to play as it does now. Truely competitive gamer numbers pale in comparison to the casual market who are not competitive. If you are playing a game casually for the simple of reason of enjoyment and that 'new' feeling you get when you try a new game for the first time and you aren't interested in being competitive and practicing, you will run out of stuff to do very quickly in the pre-2000 era of gaming. Big publishers recognised this and this is when you started to see all of the bells and whistles come into a game like achievements, unlocks, experience levelling, etc (in FPS games, obviously RPG's had this formula already). Once a casual player has finally sunk hundreds of hours into their game to unlock all of the meaningless achievements a brand new game is already out again these days. Now they can do the same thing all over again. By the time 2008/2009 came around, iD finally caught on and attempted to modernise Q3 in the form of Quakelive, but it was executed poorly which resulted in large queue times on launch day, ineffective matchmaking and ranking, a tiny budget and bad marketing and decision making.

Conclusion/Summary:

When you consider all of this, and what Quake's strong points are and why there is a dedicated small number of players who love it and recognise it for its brilliance, you will realise that Quake and popular gaming can't co-exist how we would want it. To make Quake popular today and played by hundreds of thousands or millions of players, you need to chop out the heart of Quake to the point that it won't even be recognisable as Quake any more.

I think there is nothing that could have been done to prevent Quake from losing its spot as the most popular competitive FPS while retaining the part of what makes Quake so good, given the trends of popular gaming culture and how it is driven by big publishers whose only goal is more $$$, however if a number of things were done differently by iDsoftware, community organisers and a couple of sponsors Quake could have still been a staple eletronic sport today, it wouldn't have had huge numbers of players, but a bracket of professionals that played on a year round circut similar to how tennis operates. Non-quakers enjoy watching Quake, just like people who have never played tennis enjoy watching the grand slams, because they can appreciate the masters and skill that the players have. I know many people who have played tennis maybe once or twice in their life, but still watch the grand slams. It could have been the same for Quake.

Quake demanded excellence, honesty and professionalism in a culture and industry of mediocrity, laziness and greed. I think that it's too late to change anything now, unfortunately.

Quake 3 retrospective memories (11 comments)
Posted by Red Spark @ 07:21 CDT, 18 May 2016 - iMsg
If there are still some people old enough to remember those times, it would be interesting to hear their perspective on what Q3 was like back in its very early days (1999 - 2001). How did it play, what bugs were present, what hardware was popular back then. Was it playable without competitive mode? How public games were going? What did patches bring to the table? How competitive scene started to arise?

Would be great to see some interesting stories from the dawn of the new millennium.

Quakelive on the brink of collapsing (243 comments)
Posted by un4x @ 17:45 CDT, 17 May 2016 - iMsg
Hello everyone,

Many of you may have lately noticed the various unfortunate events that have taken place in our QuakeLive community.

1) HOQ TDM this season was pretty devastating. Teams couldn't gather players and many clans decided to drop. Streamers barely casted 1/3 games.
2) #tdmpickup has taken a hit and has dropped from around 200 average connected players on the channel to an average of 150 and sometimes less than 130 at nights.
3) #capickup has completely stopped and has not had a single game in over 2 months
4) #ctfpickup is struggling to gather 8 players for a game (barely a couple of games a day)
5) the duel scene has gone pretty inactive.
6) Most top notch streamers have stopped caring or have other priorities (zoot, disrepute, ddk, etc)
7) Surely other events I can't think of atm

We are reaching the point where we every player counts, and where imho we are on the verge of reaching particularly low numbers leading to a flee of the very few players left.

To all those who still love this game and who always have, wether it is old school players are recent new blood, I urge everyone to make a move.

If you love this game and wish to keep it from becoming what Quakeworld, Quake2 and Quake4 have become then now is the time to act.

Everyone can contribute in some way, wether it is motivating old school players you know to come back or simply playing a few games yourselves....

Think of the nostalgic old days where clanbase would host an opencup with over 125 teams whilst hosting eurocup and nations cup at the same time just in TDM...

Any suggestions are welcome to boost this community and help avoid an actual end which imo is on the brink of taking place.

NEW QUAKE recommendations (9 comments)
Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 15:13 CDT, 17 May 2016 - iMsg
Time to write a new Quake

As a fan of the game with the experience of 13 years, I give expert analysis and 100% working recommendations, absolutely free.


We have long worked on Quake Live, we wrote a new good dueling maps. Period 2009-2016 = 7 years of work. 7 years should not be drop out !!!!!

WIN Formula:

New Quake = QuakeLive + NewGraphics + Innovations (+ SinglePleer).

QuakeLive:
-We need to take all the QuakeLive code and simply upgrade the graphics part to the modern level.
-All Dueling maps (in online tournaments) should save all that they have, diagram, proportions, dimensions, have 2-3 texturing variants (1 variant of the textures for the pro) like campgrounds and bloodrun in QuakeLive.


Now the main part:

Innovations = Innovations for PRO + Innovations for NOOBS.

Innovations for Noobs:

-Elo Rating (Glicko) should be everywhere and prevent novice sound the siren of a strong opponent. And do not give to play. Noobs needs less frustration. Moreover, the rating must be recognized by each duel map SEPARATELY. Just players with a high ELO should have the crown on the head in game, nick must be red and radiate
curvature of space and time.

-
-
-
-

Innovations for PRO:
-Server Must be 100 fps.
-Ability to increase ping on /cv sameping

UPDATE 19.05.2016
-Some duel maps must have super powerups, like Invisibility (duration 2 sec, player model fully invisible, spawns like quad 3-5 times during game), Silence - no any sound from player.
-Selectable spawns http://www.esreality.com/post/2811344/duel-selectable-spawns/ . But i think also about how players choose spawn points during their movement, like proximity mines setup( its Very tactical)
-Of course wall demolition.! You rocketJump and crash wall by your body!! Some animation required! =). Also you can make holes by rocket and hide inside!
-Rockets fly not only linear but also little right or left like some wind move it!
-3 jump states! Little higher, little lower, but faster


to be contunued,
I'll write more later

Changing fov from a different resolution (2 comments)
Posted by marissa @ 14:25 CDT, 16 May 2016 - iMsg
I just recently made several changes to my config settings and computer.

Well i moved from 1366x768 resolution, a non true 16:9 resolution to a true 1792x1008 resolution. I cant do 1920x1080 because my fps is not stable but 1792 it is stable.

However, i have had 103 fov and the enemy looks farther away since i changed my resolution. This would make sense i suppose. So im assuming that i need to change my cg_fov to more closely resemble what i had with my last resolution?

If so, is there a place or way i can calculate a similar FOV so i have the same feeling i had by factoring in the resolution change?

Easier to shaft up than down. (8 comments)
Posted by Lollo2 @ 07:56 CDT, 16 May 2016 - iMsg
Hi guys howcome it is easier to shaft up than down? If I stand on red armor on dm6 and my enemy is at plasmagun I usually stay in the duel. Also on Thurnderstruck if enemy goes up the stairs to the platform I usually hit better. Is it because shafting up gives more knockback?

I also have a question about plasma. I find it easy to hit with shaft/lg. But much more harder to hit with plasma. Do plasma(cells) have a minor hitbox than shaft rail rockets?

Hope you wanna discuss... Take care

F*CKMEGEDDON: A Xonotic Frag Movie (6 comments)

F*CKMEGEDDON is a 15min long Xonotic slideshow content of frags that I've been collecting ever since I started playing about six years ago. Some clips are old, some are new and some I can't even remember. I've got footage from various tournaments as well as public/pickup matches, featuring game modes such as Duel, DM, TDM, CTF, Vehicle CTF, Instagib and some weird modifications in between - against various opponents chosen indiscriminately by skill or reputation, rather by the coolness of the frag like in the old times. The result is a disorienting chaos filled with randomly modded announcer sounds and gun models determined by the server I was playing in. A ton of airshots, killing sprees, spawn killing, vortex whoring, mortar ricochets, curve rockets, flickshots and in general buttloads of Xonotic exclusive gimmicks. Little bit of everything! What can I say? I love this game and every (most) part of it.

This is an old movie project that's been collecting dust for a while. Quality is a bit below the standard and the fps is only at 30. This is because when I started this project I intended it as a youtube only release and back then standards weren't as high, let alone you couldn't even upload at 60fps yet. I promise my future videos will be at a solid 60fps and a decent resolution, assuming the game (that I'm working with) has avidemo features or that my toaster can handle fraps/bandicunt/camtasia/whatever type of recording that would be necessary due the absence of it.

Here is the schedule for the last matches.



Update: Europe nerds were sanctioned with a noshow against Czech Republic Virtual owners (insaccato preferred to go and play another match). They didn't agree with the admin decision and decided to drop from the league.

GHOSTING IN QL (4 comments)
Posted by Daniel2 @ 16:21 CDT, 13 May 2016 - iMsg
Interrestingly people can now ghost in QuakeLive as some already does in this totaly dead mod that once was fun, namely Trouble in Terrorist Town.

Ghosting consist of beeing in the server as a spec but not listed in the scoreboard so they are undetected. Server owners can do that and maybe other people with enough admin rights.

I don't see why on earth would the developers make this feature on purpose.

You can argue that if you have a couple of PC you could do same but you would be seen on the scoreboard at least.

So far i havn't seen anyone talking about this so here is a thread for it.

Note that i only slightly care because i play mainly FFA, but for duel and CA i can see the trouble.

Midair - A Tribes Spiritual Successor (10 comments)
Posted by AFireInAsa @ 12:52 CDT, 13 May 2016 - iMsg
Hi, I feel like this game could be of interest to the ESR community. If you don't know what Tribes is, it's a video game series that came out in 1998 with it's last installment in 2012 (Tribes: Ascend). Ascend wasn't received well by the hardcore Tribes crowd, so some players from the community who had previously worked on successful projects together decided to make their own Tribes-like called Midair.

Here's the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archetypestudios/midair

It's not some pipe dream fantasy Kickstarter game, it's playable and already awesome. I've been testing this game for months along with other core Tribes community members and here's a short gameplay frag film I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFj3ChJf9C4

If you like CTF (the main gametype), high-skill games, or jetpacks, check it out.

So I haven't been playing Quakelive for ~2years... I just wanted to check my account and noticed that quakelive.com redirects me to steam.

What is that?
Is my account gone?
Are the "clans" still there in which I was?
Do I still have my friends list?
Can I even expect any of my old buddies to be active?

Shoutout to T1E, mumu, xanthic, ROFL, dronsu, swords, kazunoko, T1hol, Uraz, pinaZZ, seiya, Ba77osaI, h8m3, ulbe, He4rTL3sS, ..... and all the others that I am forgetting right now :(

Like you already probably know, i bought overwatch yesterday, and i plan on playing it a lot when the game is finally released (24th of may).

I will be playing "soldier: 76" only because i went from lvl 1 to 22 in 3-4 days while playing this character only.

My best kill/death ratio with him was like 28 kills 4 deaths or something. I also did better than a lvl 60 player in 3 games. Then he left :>

Since my PC can handle overwatch ez (210+fps average depending on the maps), and since I'm not forced to play with a retarded circle crosshair, and I have the choice of using a large cyan cross and on top of that FOV 90 > all, everything is fine basically.

For all the haters saying thunderstruck is useless and not quake, I can tell you that all these years playing it made me a more than decent overwatch player after only 3-4 days of playing it.

I hope that I won't get bored by playing overwatch 24/7, if so I'll go play reflex and thunderstruck anyway, so it's ok

I won't play starcraft 2 multiplayer (even tho i finished all the 3 campaigns with the 3 races (terran, zerg, protoss), and it was a VERY enjoyable experience actually), because there is no way i can reach top player lvl even if i play it 24/7, i won't have the patience and dedication to do it, and all these years i've been playing much more FPS games than RTS games like starcraft or warcraft.
I'm 27 years old, I think it's pretty realistic to say that at that age you can't beat a nerdy 16 years old korean dude that plays the game from 8 to 12 hours/day for 3-4 years in professional conditions.

So yeah, I think the best option for me is to play overwatch from 1 to 4 hours almost everyday with my beloved hardstyle music radio (hardbase.fm) and then play with friends that have the game and are good at it too (preferably french players, because it's much easier to communicate in french in a game like ow imho), make a team and play hard go pro :D.

TL;DR OW will probably be my main game because I already ordered it and plan on playing it at release (24th of may) with the character "soldier: 76" only and also because I did very good in the open beta with this character annnnnd..... I can play with music which is awesome TL;DR

Most enjoyable player movement wise? (97 comments)
Posted by Herezja @ 05:03 CDT, 11 May 2016 - iMsg
I've always enjoyed watching Cypher, av3k and agent due to their agressive style of play, endless rocket jumps and 360s as opposed to evil or k1llsen for example who seem rather clunky with their movement.

What are your thoughts?

OVERWATCH BETA OVER ? (3 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 14:18 CDT, 10 May 2016 - iMsg
So, I preordered OW standard edition (40Ä) and it says that it will be available at the 24th of may. And it also says in my battle.net account that I have bought this product.

Played 2-3 games starting at around 20:45CEST and then the game stopped the auto-search for games. Then tried to relaunch the game and couldn't connect to the server.

So I guess it's over now ? Will have to wait until 24th of may to play it again ? :/

Both faster than a Titan X and uses much less power. Thoughts?
