display port = dumb shit (1 comment)
Posted by LOLatRoflexTimers @ 16:28 CDT, 26 July 2017 - iMsg
I can't believe how annoying display port is.

1) When I turn the monitor on, it turns itself off and on a couple of times, this happens randomly, sometimes it does it sometimes it doesn't.

2) Sometimes randomly (I think when Catalyst finds an update or something) it flickers off and on

3) When I turn the monitor off, THE FUCKING WINDOWS POSITIONS CHANGE AFTER I TURN IT ON

4) WHEN I TURN THE MONITOR OFF, THE FUCKING WINDOWS ICONS CHANGE POSITION WHEN I TURN IT ON

This is so fucking dumb, and from what i've gathered there's no fix? the fuck is this, fuck fuck fuck fuck, fucking technology.

This video is part of my Jumping around series, check the playlist here.

The dates I recorded these tricks spans out from 2014 to present day. Some have been made videos of before, some are unique and some just plain fillers. If you have questions about the tricks, throw them and I'll explain as well as I can.

Did you enjoy the team tricks in particular? Or are they terminally boring? Let me know and I'll keep trying new things.

ZenAku's chance to represent Australia (No comments)
Posted by mickzerofive @ 20:05 CDT, 24 July 2017 - iMsg
8 years ago Australia David 'ZenAku' Addati started his journey in Quake Live as a young, talented and exciting player to watch compete. Very quickly ZenAku was keeping up with the veteran players, who followed the series from Quake 3, with his exciting flick rails and impressive timing. Shortly after attending our first LAN tournament in 2010, ZenAku's lifestyle took him away from the game until his return early 2017 with the announcement of Quake Champions beta. Almost immediately ZenAku started putting together tutorial videos for new players in an attempt to help bring in new faces not only to our community but all international communities. Lately, he's also been streaming his games against the other Quakecon BYOC participants from Australia.

ZenAku now makes the 5th player of those going to compete in the Quakecon BYOC representing Australia's best, a long with previously mentioned Australia Astroboy, Australia Fraze, Australia Python and Australia Steej. Interviews and video content of all the players will be coming soon (stay tuned).

Play TDM (13 comments)
Posted by Bolland @ 14:10 CDT, 24 July 2017 - iMsg
I find TDM the most interesting but it's hard to find games. If more people would use http://tdmpickup.eu/ it would be easier to find games, teams are chosen by ranking to balance the games, players are friendly and after a few games a beginner get into it, also plenty of TDM matches to watch on youtube to learn tactics.

Patch Notes for no 7/24 Update (16 comments)
Posted by Nukm @ 03:24 CDT, 24 July 2017 - iMsg
Patch Notes CBT 15

Heyguys,

Soon (tm) we'll be deploying another patch, as usual only a smaller update is going live at 8am ET. We'll be taking servers down for the deploy, and plan to have them back up around 11am ET.

We decided to react to the obvious inbalances of champions and had a slight change of philosophy. Active abilities should complement a champions play but we do not want situation where the match resolves around the use of active abilities and avoiding combat during downtime. Thats why we decided to nerf disruptive abilities while at the same time improving health and armor stats of weak heroes so players focus a bit more on map control and pickup management.

Here are the fixes for tomorrow's patch:

Champions:

Anarki: Decreased acceleration while on ground to make him more vulnarable while trying to avoid hits by just strafing left/right in quick succession.

Clutch: Increased downtime of Barrier after firing a weapon to allow more counterplay/interactivity while the Barrier is up. We want players to be able to react when Clutch fires instead of just having to rely on prediction shots and spam.
Clutch: Momentum gain from dodge is now inversly correlated to his current speed in that direction. We enjoy Clutches new and unique mobility options but felt like it was too abusive when chained.

Gelena: Max Health increased from 100 to 125. We are satisfied with the offensive usefulness of totems but wanted increase healing synergy and increase Gelenas general power level slightly.

Nyx: Added a quick transition phase into and out of Ghost Walk during which Nyx will be vulnerable, but more resistant, to damage.
Nyx: Added a quit humming sound when transitioning into Ghost Walk that fades out slowly to allow opponents to chase here slighly easier.

Ranger: Dire Orb will now disappear after dealing damage. While telefrags with the Dire Orb created spectacular moments, it was too random, often impossible to play around for the oppent and invalidated our core gameplay design of health/armor control. This also allows players to willingly step into the Orb, taking damage but denying Ranger the ability to teleport. Overall we hope this chang increases interactivity while bringing down Rangers power level a bit.

Slash: Increased maximum armor from 25 to 50. we feel like it was pretty stupid to have a champions this weak not even being able to fully benefit from one of the major pickups present on each map.
Slash: Increased starting armor from 0 to 25 to bring her powerlevel up to par with other champions.

Website:
We update the Champions page on quake.com because it provided outdated information and it was emberassing to not list B.J. weeks after he was introduced to the game. We also added detailed information on how abilities, like Scalebearer Bull Rush, actually work and added lore to explain bsinteractions like Clutch being able to see Nyx through its Barrier

Quake Live extremely slow and unresponsive ...? (23 comments)
Posted by MailmanMel @ 20:02 CDT, 22 July 2017 - iMsg
I played just a few weeks ago without any issues and for years before that without complications, but now I cannot really even start the game.

After launching Quake Live in Steam I get about 10 seconds of black screen and then 10 seconds of the Quake Live logo, after that I arrive in the main menu, but I cannot do anything really.
Steam FPS counters shows a constant 1 FPS and thus everything is extremely slow. Console opens about 10 seconds after clicking the bind on the keyboard, in-game menu items react in about 20 seconds.

Restarting Steam doesn't help 4 out of 5 times produce the same result, 1 out of 5 the game launches normally, but when I try to connect to a server FPS is back to 1. Every item takes about 5 seconds to load and I am disconnected from the server before the map loading is mid way through.

Restarting doesn't help, neither does reinstalling the game and steam itself. All other things run normally, steam related and others.

Any idea what is going on, has anyone come across something like this before?

Why are there no Cosplayer Discussions? (33 comments)
Posted by petelil @ 08:26 CDT, 22 July 2017 - iMsg
My question is simple and easy why is there not a single post for cosplayers on this forum and if there is then why aren't we using it? I like doing cosplay and appreciate others who are doing so and developing themselves as a cosplayer. So, we need to do something about it, right?

To start of things for all the fellows who like cosplaying and if they do not cosplay just like to watch pictures and appreciate others, I am hopefully thinking of this to be a start of something that continues to go on and forth.

The first thing, we need to discuss. Yes, a thing which can connect cosplayers and those who don't. I came across this fanmade thing, which you can't even imagine (not being cocky). A D.Va Pachimari Plush, yes! you heard that right!

Let the cosplaying discussions begin here!

Most satisfying Quake mods, moments and mechanics (7 comments)
Posted by jamalz @ 04:39 CDT, 19 July 2017 - iMsg
Hey guise, I thought we should compile all the most satisfying parts of our Quaking experience from each and every Quake that we've played. (I never played q4, looked shit)

This way we can bounce ideas off of ourselves and maybe try to help Quake champions find a good mod/game play mechanic in order for it to not suck balls.

Quake 1 best mods
------------
-Q-ball mod, explained before in some threads, basically sacrifice without the obelisks.
- Rocket Arena 1. Full health, self damage 1v1 with all weapons on tiny maps with the start down timer.
- Quake 1 TDM
- Quake 1 CTF with grapple

Quake 1 satisfying moments
-----------
- Water discharge trick. In quake 1 you could actually shoot lg from the water if you synced it when surfacing. It was a neat trick and hard to pull off but it would be stylish as fuck to kill people in this way.
-air rockets and juggling people with lg in the air.
-rocket jumping around maps
- direct grenades (grenades felt amazing)
- quad damage ssg / lg
-sick grapple ctf runs

Quake 2 mods (only played ra2 :<)
-----------
Rocket arena 2

Quake 2 satisfying moments
-------------
-tossing a hand grenade at a mofo and watching them explode
-running down kids with chaingun
-double jumping on random shit during fights with people


Quake 3 mods
-------------------
OSP TDM (the balance was legit)
SPACECTF (q3ctf4 and other space maps)
CPMA CTF
Defrag

Quake 3 satisfying moments
-------------------------------------
-camping ctf4 with railgun all game (im a cunt)
-defrag maps
-plasma kills / plasma trick jumps during games
-topshots at the end of maps with you as the leader
-sick flick rails and air rockets
-quad lg


Quake Live Mods
-------------------
Team arena ctf (runes)
Clan arena
regular CTF


Quake Live satisfying moments
------------------
-Using damage rune + like 20 mines on 1 ambush place in a ctf map and having niggas explode
-taking the armor regen rune and just lg beasting everyone on a map while camping health spawns
-everyone coordinated in a ctf match
-head stomping kids on jump pad in clan arena

Some minor observations regarding QC from a spectator POV (15 comments)
Posted by svr @ 22:39 CDT, 17 July 2017 - iMsg
As and old Quake vet who doesnt play anymore (and doesnt intend to) but still enjoys watching the occasional video of competitive Quake duel or Starcraft Brood War, I thought it might be worthwhile to share some observations regarding QC from a spectators perspective. Of course this is all my subjective opinion.

1. Visuals
- There is more fidelity but to a certain extent this has come at the cost of clarity for the spectator. Ultimately I just wanna clearly see what is going on.
- The gun movement in QC seems much less of a tight translation of player action. This is a trivial point but for instance Q3/QL does a much better job in this respect. In Q3 there is a tighter link to the gun swinging left / right (walking) and the gun bumping / kicking up down (jumping / being in air). Its trivial but helps the viewer better understand what the player is doing. In QC this is less clear, in fact the gun model appears to do all sorts somewhat random wobbling and angles up / down when jumping which is a bit of an annoying distraction as it does not reflect the direction the player is aiming at.
- Player models are also harder to see

2. Sound
Even if I turn up the volume some sounds effects seem flat or more implicit. Again this doesnt help the spectators experience to understand what is happening. Its less entertaining as well

3. Rules
Just a matter of taste, but so far, from a spectator perspective the rounds based system come across as annoying breaks to the action, killing the pleasant flow of seeing either player moving across the map pursuing their hunt or map control or trying to evade or regain control, etc. I am sure it adds new forms of depth but I am not too fond of the breaks

Again just my 2 cents on this, dont know if relevant id people still read ESR. Either way, interested to hear your views on this. Do you agree or do you think my observations are bollocks :)

New CPU - worth it? (26 comments)
Posted by skint @ 11:33 CDT, 14 July 2017 - iMsg
At the moment I have an i5-3470 paired with 16gb ddr3 and a Sapphire RX 480 Nitro+ 8gb.

Thinking about possibly upgrading my cpu in a month or so but not sure if the performance inscrease is worth the outlay... cpu tech seems to grow far far slower than gpu. Just seems that the newer ones are that much better?

I'd be looking at a cpu in the 150-200 price range plus another 120 or so for mobo and ram so a total of around 300. Please don't give me $ prices, you guys literally get this stuff for a third less than us so only quote UK suppliers please.

Would it be worth getting a Ryzen 5 or a newer i5 to replace this with.... or would I possibly get the same/better results by just getting a used i7-3770K (between 120-180 on ebay) that would fit in my current motherboard?

Having a hard time finding the right sens. (19 comments)
Posted by RentoN @ 01:29 CDT, 13 July 2017 - iMsg
Since I started playing QC I changed my sensitivity at least 100 times. I rarely manage to play more than a couple of games before deciding I need to try different settings.
So far the only conclusion all this testing has brought me to is that I'm definitely better with accel. Without accel my aim is jittery with anything less than 25cm/360 and that's already too low for me to keep up with the fast pace of the game.
So I tried using 25cm with some accel, but when I use enough accel to make 180 turns comfortable it also makes my aim jittery again, so I tried lower sens with more accel and tried to find a balance.

Right now my go to settings when I'm not testing something else are:
0.865 sens, 1600DPI, 0.012 accel. But 0.012 accel translated to 400DPI is 0.192... that's insanely high isn't it?

You guys have any tips how I can figure out the best sens/accel combination for me?
What are the common settings?
I tested some of the settings from the thread below, but they seem to be out-dated/not suited for QC.

Australia to send 4 to Quakecon (89 comments)
Posted by mickzerofive @ 21:28 CDT, 12 July 2017 - iMsg
It is with great pleasure we announce today that we will be sending four Australian players to compete at this years Quake Champions BYOC event held at Quakecon, TX. As many of you know the announcement of the Quake World Championships came with both excitement and disappointment for our Australian and New Zealand players alike. Since then we have been working hard behind the scenes with two of Australia's premiere eSports organisations JAM Gaming and Corvidae Inc to make this all possible.

Here are the four players representing OCE:

Australia Andrew 'Python' Cha Cha (JAM Gaming) tweet
Australia Daniel 'Astroboy' De Sousa (JAM Gaming) tweet
Australia Frazer 'Fraze' Hockley (Corvidae) tweet
Australia Tyler 'Steej' Joseph (Corvidae) tweet

For those of you who haven't followed the Oceanic scene during Quake Live please check out the soon to be released player interviews and background stories to find out more about them as well as more about the Australian and New Zealand Quake community. Also give the players and teams a follow on social media to keep up with their trip and practice.

I know toxic uses 1.275 @ 1600DPI, ~20cm/360.

So you do guys know the settings of any other pros?

Question about accel and povohat's driver. (23 comments)
Posted by RentoN @ 12:01 CDT, 12 July 2017 - iMsg
I was wondering if it'll be allowed to use povohat's accel driver at quake LANs on in leagues/tournaments?

I'm kinda torn right now if I should use povohat's accel or just deal with the currently terrible in-game accel.
I don't want to get used to something I might not be allowed to use in the long run.

And does anyone happen to know if anyone competing in the QWC qualifiers uses povohat's?
Any well known pros who use it?

Can't fine-tune sensitivity. What FOV do I need? (11 comments)
Posted by TheCat @ 08:22 CDT, 12 July 2017 - iMsg
I want the sensitivity to feel the same as in QL in order to preserve muscle memory, but it seems to only change in steps of 0.25. 1.25 is too low, 1.50 is too high. The only solution that comes to mind is to use either 1.25 or 1.50 and change the FOV so that the distance I need to move my mouse to move my view one screen is the same in both games.

From my QL CFG:
seta m_cpi "800"
seta cg_fov "100"
seta sensitivity "9" (approx 1.3 without m_cpi).

Anyone here who knows the math that could help me?

Quake setup on windows 7 (5 comments)
Posted by BalkanFM @ 19:17 CDT, 10 July 2017 - iMsg
my xp machine i play quake on has died so i have to set everything up again on another pc...

i had a usb hack to run mice on 500/1000hz, then something to disable accel in windows and a registry file that was relative to the monitors refresh rate.. might be that the third thing i mentioned did what the 2nd hack did with more precision or something to do with smoothing. cant recall exactly.

so, what do i need to do on win7 to get rid of accel, smoothing and that crap and run my old mice on high hz..?

any nvidia shit i have to configure to minimize delay?

is there anything else im missing besides messing in bios?

Kenya Cup Frag Competition Videos, Voting & Highlights (14 comments)
Posted by xerosawyer @ 18:36 CDT, 10 July 2017 - iMsg
Last Saturday we hosted the CPMA Kenya Cup and an interesting component of this cup was that there was a best frag reward given to the player for, you guessed it, the best frag. This idea was implemented and financed by long time Promoder Norway Fjoggs who put produced all the videos below. Now the community will be get to vote their favorite frag and determine who gets the prize money. Additionally Fjoggs put together these videos into a nice clean highlight package (which you can also find below).

Best Frag Competition Videos & Voting

This event had 25.00 EUR on the for the best frag of the cup, with an additional 5.00 EUR going to the player on the receiving end of the frag, and overall nine frags/moments were selected. People now can cast their vote via strawpoll. The order below is the order of the videos in the playlist, and players can vote by simply selecting the corresponding number. Voting will close on Saturday July 15, 2017. Thank you!


Highlights

All of the above was stitched together with some nice effects, music and caster hype (mainly Germany nekon) into a highlight package by, once again, Mr. Fjoggs. I think it would be worth while to watch it to the very end as there may or may not be a hint about a CTF Draft Cup in the not-so-distant future. :)

WMO 1.1a Liftoff issues (No comments)
Posted by mult1sync @ 00:49 CDT, 10 July 2017 - iMsg
I have an OEM X80 that has no issues, other than some wear from use on it. Then I bought a new WMO 1.1a, also an X80, but non OEM. It was in extremely good condition (which I was a little skeptical about) I tested it out and it was a legit sensor in it. It matched my older WMO exactly except in condition and color. But after roughly 7 months I started having really bad problems with the liftoff. Whenever I lift the mouse the cursor flicks to a corner of my screen, this isn't a software issue I already checked. Now is there a way to reduce this or fix this? If not I might buy another WMO 1.1a or maybe and IME 3.0, if I do neither I might try to swap the case of this mouse with my older one, only using the older one's sensor and etc.

Dire Orb (38 comments)
Posted by skint @ 06:28 CDT, 9 July 2017 - iMsg
Anyone else hate the telefrag ability?

I quit a duel yesterday because of it after the 3rd telefrag. 2 of them were at MH, one down the corridor and the other from above. I'm not too bothered about these as I could have moved out the way and hammered the mh spot with rockets... lesson learnt.

However the next one I just couldn't handle and quit! I heard the enemy and knew they were in the corridor above MH, I was on the shotgun platform so sneaked along the ledge and there they were, just looking through the grate thinking that I was about to go for MH. They had no idea I was there so I shot 2 rockets and they must have had a slither of health left but before I could shoot again I got Dire Orb telefragged from 2 metres away while I was on a full stack!

Have people got similar stories?

Pick galena.

Play an FFA match on ruins of sarnath.

Camp the LG room using totems to sustain your health and play with the intention of getting the highest possible LG percentage constantly going back to that room to get the LG and trying to make kills with that gun in that room. Though a few kills en route with MG is fine.

What LG percentage are you getting at the end?

A look at the competitive QC Duel Meta (64 comments)
Posted by Nukm @ 10:29 CDT, 8 July 2017 - iMsg
Quake Champions Duel competitions are up and running and it is time to look at the developing champions meta. Using Data from the later rounds of past duel tournaments I analysed how often and on which map champions get picked by top duel players. With 546 champion picks overall we are already able to observe some trends while the full picture is still being drawn.



The data was collected from the available vods (thanks to plusforward.net) of the later rounds of the following tournaments: 125 FPS QC Duel Sunday Cup #2, COOLLERZ Saturday Online Cup #1, ESL Wold Championship NA Qualifier #2, ESL Wold Championship EU Qualifier #1, ESL Wold Championship EU Qualifier #2.

Ask the Devs - Answers! July, 7th (7 comments)
Posted by sudoBp @ 13:40 CDT, 7 July 2017 - iMsg
Hey guys,

Here are the latest developer answers from this week's Quake Champions Ask Us Anything. If your question wasn't answered, don't worry. You can continue to post your questions in our ongoing forum thread, and we'll keep answering additional questions each week. Thanks all!

Developer Key:

Matt Charles
- Senior Producer, id Software = M.C.
Jason Bergman Senior Producer, Bethesda Softworks = J.B.


Are there plans to fix or improve the Netcode and connectivity in the future?

MC: Its one of our top priorities and you should see continual improvements some small, some large over time.



Is there a way to improve loading times, especially between matches?

MC: Were also working on improving load times for everyone. As code & content get locked in to place, optimizations can then happen more easily.



When the game comes out, how much will it cost. Is it free for beta users?

JB: When were finished with the beta period (which in true id tradition is officially when its done), the game will be free. Downloading the game will give you access to Ranger, and you can either rent or purchase individual Champions, or buy the whole lot as a single package and never be nagged again.



Why does the Bethesda Launcher always notify me over the game with launcher updates?

JB: Were working on an update to the launcher that will stop notifications from happening when the game is running, and in general, be much less intrusive with those notifications.



Will the soundtracks for the remade maps return from q3? because that could really stir things up a bit.

MC: Yes, wed like to implement different soundtrack options. We dont have an ETA for this, but we really want it too.

JB: Were all fans of the music from past games in the series, and we absolutely want to add some of those classic tracks to the game. Let us know which ones we should be sure to include.



Could you make matchmaking less tedious by letting those who are queuing do warmup (even solo is fine) instead of putting us in matches that are already started?

MC: I dont want to get into specifics since they may change, but we are working on various things which will 1) reduce queue times and 2) increase the odds of getting into a fresh match.



The default keybindings should be mapped around WASD to promote that kind of good habit for faster weapon switching. A newcomer might think everyone plays with the weapons bound to the number keys because thats the default, when most veterans are able to destroy people, in part thanks to a more intelligent layout.

MC: Good point.



Zero games played since last week Monday [because] ui_backend_error_1397.

MC: The 1397 error usually shows up when the game client cant reach any of the data centers under a very high ping threshold. We dont want this to happen, so continue to let us know your location and your pings to the data centers in the list if you see this error.



Are you working on optimization plans for the game engine as weve seen reports of the game consuming a lot of PC resources?

MC: Absolutely. This is also one of the highest priorities.



Do you guys plan on addressing the audio? Both environmental and announcer. One thing I've noticed while playing is that footsteps are a bit too subtle where as Anarki's hover board is easily detectable. Also vertical sound spatialization is off when it comes to things such as teleporters & boost pads. As far as the announcer, do you guys plan on bringing back the one used in the early gameplay trailer?

MC: We had some licensing steps to take care of first, but yes, the old announcer is coming back. As for audio in general, a mixing pass is in progress.



Talking about esports, how do you plan to handle this aspect of the game? Will you just have a tournament approach, or will you create a sort of Rank system inside the game to allow everyone to climb a leader board?

JB: Ranked matches are something we are working on.



How difficult is it to keep each Champion balanced? Does user feedback help you with this? We ask because there seems to be some issues with B.Js dual wield ability.

JB: Its very difficult. Thats why were in beta. We monitor feedback and make changes. Youll note we tweaked BJs abilities in a recent patch. Well keep making changes as we go.


Is server browser implementation in your plans?

MC: Yes, its on our big list o things to do.

I like the game. (86 comments)
Posted by rawrcostra @ 02:37 CDT, 6 July 2017 - iMsg
Yes. I like the game. In general terms, i like it.
This community have been complaining about literally everything of every single game after Q3.
I played Q3, I played a lot of QL, I played UT and I played QC. And the game is good.
For sure the game is not an AAA, but what can you spect about such a small niche like arena shooters?
Is as simple as that if we dont support this game, the game will die, and this is the best opportunity of trying to build a new scene again.
And come on, is not so bad. They changed the timing of the items to a simple one and they added some special habilities to make it look more modern.
And thats it. They are even almost the same maps!
Maybe you should try to addapt a bit to the new times and not complaining of every single change trying to make the game more accesible for the newcomers.
Or you can come back to QL.

BTW i think that all that you want it will be a QL with a big community. But im sorry to tell that it will never happend if we are complaining about every single change that they make to the game.
Sorry i had to say it after reading 1000000 lines about how bad is the game and why is dead.

A standardised way to check QC hardware performance (55 comments)
Posted by nvc @ 23:50 CDT, 4 July 2017 - iMsg
It's impossible to -easily- set up a multiplayer scenario without multiple people scripting events, so perhaps follow this to quickly check without running a specific route. Obviously you'll get further reduced frames in a full match... plus it's BETA.

I've included results for low, med, high and ultra... plus experimented with each setting to find the most optimal settings for the current beta on my setup i.e. which settings actually change FPS. I'll be doing something similar for a 1080p vs 1440p video I'm putting together and figured i'd just export and compile initial data to potentially help others.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZoSTC...sp=sharing

I'm streaming using OBS Studio and NVENC at 720p 60fps. These were done live whilst testing a new monitor, I additionally included a set of results when not streaming for my settings in the spreadsheet. Streaming in QC tends to reduce your in-game fps in the region of 12-20. Which seems to follow an older video I produced using CSGO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6uaPD_5r4w

Perhaps this way you can compare with friends.

A detailed summary on reasons why Rapha is so good at Quake (20 comments)
Posted by chi @ 15:00 CDT, 4 July 2017 - iMsg
Many wonder why Rapha is so smart and can time 6 items at once and why he has won 5 Quakecons they're many reasons and I think I have found the secret. He is much older than you think he was not born 1989. He is also from the 5th dimension a trans- dimensional being like him is able to choose which time he can appear in thus his ability to change his appearance throughout time with his choosing of carrier to give birth to him (It will also cover up any random human appearance given someone like me were to research them but I found a few key mistakes throughout human evolution and history.) excluding my previous reasoning of him finding the fountain of youth. In my finding I have concluding his most influential appearance known in this time period as Gao Yang born in 526 http://imgur.com/a/hQQtr he was the first emperor of the Northern Qi by forcing Emperor Xiaojing of Eastern Wei to yield the throne to him. I traced back even farther to the times Greek civilization all the way to the Homo-habilis Rapha shaped the way humanity is today and we should all praise him for it and his teachings throughout history. I will still keep searching for more accurate details of how he changed human history for the better but alas I know you want more important details on how this all pertains to Quake.

By doing this he set up the history to such a way that in around 1500 years he can create Quake and become what is now known as the best quake player to ever live. You may also think that could be Thresh but think not for what if Rapha is Thresh. (Just like how Fry from Futurama became his own grandfather.) Rapha impregnated some random hot Asian hippie (Who she is at the moment is currently unknown.) so that he can keep his elegant timing and equation deducing skills. At the young age of 12 when he was currently walking the earth as Thresh the original Quake god (This also concluded why Thresh stopped competing in Quake 3. In my findings I have found 541 different connections linking back to Rapha (I acquired them by numberizing his name from Shane Hendrixson taking the first 3 letters that are interchangeable by numbers S=5 A=4 I=1) the reason why I choose 3 was because he first made his name big in Quake 3.

Rapha may be a 5 dimensional being but I have seen these mistake on how relevant the number 3 is I suspect he had 3 different lives in the past 100 years to greatly influence quake being made. He had also helped originally plant the idea for Carmack to create quake by becoming Carmack's math teacher at Raytown South High School if you look at Carmack's wiki they have no explanation for why he changed schools even through his house was still in the same location I can only assume he change his schools district designation location to Raytown. By guiding him to the path of making the best fps game to ever be created. That is 2 of the 3 now the other may not be born yet or is currently walking around at this moment what he will do with the third is unknown I can only assume it is to fix quake making it even more challenging.

With all of this information it is clear Rapha has practiced quake for millions of years given his incredible skill within the game. So far to the fact that he stages himself to appear human to others by having mediocre aim thus the appearance of being human. It is also seen with Thresh known for his positioning and incredible game sense but lackluster aim. I feel Rapha will catch on me as he is a 5th dimensional being and may even wipe our 3rd dimensional history to fix his mistakes. I dont have much time I will try to solve this for the greater good of humanity. Maybe Quake is his plan to taking over this 3rd dimensional universe, maybe to give humanity the joy of quake, maybe its just because he can we may not ever know but it is my solemn duty to find the truth. I will keep you guys updated on my findings. I don't have much time I must go before he finds my true identity - Chi

Rapha streaming Quake Champions last night (46 comments)
Posted by son1dow @ 11:50 CDT, 4 July 2017 - iMsg
did some duels for an hour, answered questions as well. Confirmed will be participating in the next duel qualifier.

When asked JustHufflepuff : Confirmed 4th for sac? says can't really talk about sacrifice yet, but yes there should be a confirmed one. Implying he's making a team from what I understand.

https://www.twitch.tv/videos/156432711

Edit: he also says top2 are him and Cypher (once he starts practicing, implying he will!), then toxjq, fourth is really contested; and that he will be streaming a lot of duels starting soon, perhaps within a week

The Bridge to Rail jump done backward and forward with all champions, without using their respective special abilities. Plus a tutorial on how to do it with keypresses and speed visible, slow motion, and an explanation of the circlejump and strafejumping (for all those new to Quake). In between a little reminiscence of Bridge to Rail in Quake Live and Quake 3 Arena.

Should only be able to dodge left/right and perhaps reduce the speed he dodges slightly.

No idea why he was able to dodge in all directions as supersonic speeds over long distances.
