I HEARD QUAKELIVE IS DEAD AF (3 comments)
Posted by mray557 @ 15:18 CST, 23 November 2017 - iMsg
damn.. my desire to play this game is like zero now that PUBG is my new addiction. It's sad though, I can't get into Quake Champion and there aren't any quake champion streams that i'd like to fuck with. Quake society is losing its touch man. I remember when it used to be fun to watch Rapha play quake but man, his quake champion play is boring af. I can no longer put my finger on who is the best playeri n quake anymore sincerapha didn't win QC million dollar prize. It's convoluted as fuck. SO When will they release a new comparably better game? Like seriously, man, I'm bored of af. I mean, I can only play PUBG for an hour before I get bored of that as well. Damn..I remmeber when i bought $10,000 worth of btc 7 years ago. Man. I just cashed out recently. life's good bro.

Just looking to see if anyone has any experience with any of the following monitors, I'm looking to get a 27inch freesyn monitor (likely tomorrow when sales kick in) not fussed by ips - just after raw speed really.

currently using a lg w2363d 120hz which has 0 input lag when in thru mode, so don't want to buy something and find it feels worse to play on.

Asus MG278Q - already on sale from 480 to 380

https://www.amazon.co.uk/MG278Q-27-inch-Monit...sus+27+144

iiyama GB2760QSU - urrently 398 (but seen as low as 380)

This was my peak (22 comments)

This was my peak. Winning this cup meant so much to me back in the time but now I realize how big an upset I made. I don't think I've ever been a champion material but I'll keep annoying the fuck out of the best if I can. The people that helped me get to the best of my abilities and I'll thank til my last breath are : spart1e, strenx, memento_mori, unnamedtony, av3k, cypher, stermy, zoot, ddk, nvc, draven snelvolvve, trance, memento_mori...

And many more, I might edit this list but I'm going blank right now... Those are the first names that come to mind. And I could talk a lot about every one of them.

[fans, even if it feels weird to call em that...] You guys have kept me going and all you crazy followers on twitch. Keep following quakers playing quake. You're keeping the best game ever alive !

I could go on an endless story about how these (above) people helped my very average ass get to taste the very best of what Quake can offer. And maybe you will too someday.

Someday I decided that I wasn't just a little nobody, and I decided that I could beat anybody... And I tried. And I mostly failed ; I'm no cypher, rapha, cooller, or tox. But I've achieved the dream I had when I was a boy : I competed, fought, and made a name for myself just by trying and trying again until I could keep up with these legends.

Now I may never be remembered amongst the oldest crowds of ESR, in History. People only really remember the best of the best. But I challenged the best. And I'm proud of it.

I came all the way from nobody's land in baseq3 osp freezetag and somehow made my way. I even, unbeknownst to me, played with great players (2gd, toxjq, etc. but they'll deny it)

My point is.... Keep playing, don't give up. I cant believe it but I'm going on my thirties and I felt a long time ago I was already old for ESR. FML.


PS: since the trolls'll be flunding in. If anyone who feels they really got fucked over by a donation I was involved in, please contact me on IM.

Due to complications arising from, I'm just guessing, most of us Quake 2 Railwarz players being potheads, railwarz.com is out of action for the time being. We invite you all to come check out new website for Quake 2 Railwarz at https://rwzctf.wordpress.com and of course to play on the servers nightly.

new microwave that has everything and might not blow up, including defrosting ice cream, combi air, force air, autoclean, but not im worried about all of that, it is all about what the fake rustler's burgers are like at 3am

the chicken sandwich at 800 watts for 1.30 seconds, tastes abit rubbery, 600 watts and 2.30 minutes is probably better to taste the chicken more, still is no different to a mcdonalds at night

the grill is useless for crumpets

the controls could do with being lit up, you can't see much without 100 watt lightbulb

QC rebalance suggestions (13 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 11:30 CST, 17 November 2017 - iMsg
Weapons:

All weapons are fine, except the LG. They should either tweak again the hitreg or keep it as it is but make it do 8dmg/hit instead of 7dmg/hit (currently).
Not saying that cause I'm an LG abuser, just that I want the holy trinity (RL LG RG) to be as much balanced as possible.
At the moment most pros players just ignore the LG, it's ridiculous to see how this game has become RL-only. The railgun is fine tho. You also have to take into consideration that most light champions are very fast, so rushing with RL becomes easier.
For all of those reasons, LG needs a buff, so that people like evil, strenx, clawz can play their favorite playstyle again (LG-based playstyles). That said, even with a LG buff, the game would still be balanced and open to a lot of different playstyles (RG-heavy, RL-heavy or LG-heavy).

Champions:

Currently there are 3 different tiers of champions. Top-tier are slash, anarki, doom and nyx. Middle-tier are sorlag, ranger and clutch. Sub-tier are galena, scalebearer, B.J. and visor.
You can either nerf the top-tier champs, or buff the sub-tier champs.
At the moment, it's ridiculous to see that 90% of the best players are using slash, anarki and doom/nyx.
We don't want a game with "Overwatch-like-approach", where some champions/heroes are definitely better than the rest. We want a perfectly balanced game, where every players can just pick his favorite champs based on their own playstyles.

Quake has always been about balance and letting the players develop their own playstyle/way of winning.
It's sad to see that at the moment QC is only about rockets and light & fast champions with a lot of mobility.

IIama refresh 144hz - but one time booted with lower value. (7 comments)
Posted by sew333 @ 15:20 CST, 14 November 2017 - iMsg
Hello.
My pc:
*Asus Z170-P with 6700K cpu

*Corsair 750 RM

*Gtx 1080 Ti Founder Edition

*Monitor Red Eagle IIyama 24' 1080p 144hz plugged by display port cable to GFX.

Few days ago i get power outage. Power outage was because fuse was tripped because of kitchen which was turned on in other room.

When i run pc first time on first boot ( after power outage ) refresh was normal at start 144hz.
When i manually turn off computer and turn on again,and on my second boot it happened. Refresh was lower than 144hz. To make again 144hz i turned off monitor and turn back on again.

So that was bug or that power outage related?

But i like i said on my first pc run ( boot ) after power outage refresh was 144hz fine. It happened just after i normally shutdown my pc and booted pc second time.

Maybe coincidence and i am worrying for nothing,hehe ?

So conclusion: It happened not just after ( not on pc first power on ) power outage.
But on second time ( second turn ) when i boot to Windows 10.




PS: I tried to reproduce only 3 times by cutting power to pc and powering on and booting again, but 144hz on start. Not able to reproduce.



Maybe coincidence and i am worrying for nothing?

Valve shall launch Team Fortress 3 in response to OW (11 comments)
Posted by aiken @ 11:14 CST, 14 November 2017 - iMsg
... and I bet it will happen in less than 2 years (at least the beta or announcement). I wouldn't be surprised if they are already working on this for quite some time.

It's natural step for Valve to be on the gaming market. There's millions of player base in OW who could be captured to TF3 concept. I guess they can base it on TF2 and probably capture a couple of things introduced by Blizzard.

This could be next big FPS game and it may have much more esportish potential than OW. What do you guys think?

From Cypher's last stream with timestamps. Enjoy =)

2-06-34 These fools are looking for the perfect fight - on the background of QL everything looking stupid.
2-10-55 (after frag), just, I'm just rush him like idiot with anarki ... that's it ...
2-11-25 - tactic at the level of "just do not give a rocket"


2-35-45 (after win) do you like this game guys? i don't ... i think it's bullshit
2-39-50 I already want to barf from this game (QC duel mode)
2-46-20 (after win) very nice game .... very ... very quality .... very strategic
2-47-00 saBREpulse in twitch chat to Cypher: it would be a bad game if you lost: D (seems like he from SABER interactive). Cypher to him: it was sarcasm if you know what it is(see Cypher's frag on video with Doom ability and low hp).
2-48-50 from twitch chat: How do you win the tournament (DH winter) if you dont like the game? Cypher: this is a good question tbh.

2-56-40 bitch, fuck, I do not want to play this fucking shit anymore, bitch, fuck .. fuck ....


Cypher dont like QC duel mode with small stacks, no map control, no positional advantage(position means nothing), only stupid fights ...

Zulua (dRone) and Extatiq (Bethesda CM) itws @ESWC2017 (9 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 08:24 CST, 13 November 2017 - iMsg
On the very last day of the Quake Champions tournament of the ESWC 2017, Friday the 3rd of November, I had the opportunity to talk with three players but also to ask some questions to two other major personalities of the ESWC QC tournament : France Axel "Zulua" Acquarone and France Louis "Extatiq" Evrard.

Zulua was the official commentator for the ESWC 2017 Quake Champions competition. He is a veteran of the Quake franchise and most of you who played TDM in Quake Live have probably met him in the pickup channel under the nickname of dRone. I wanted to ask him about his background as a player, what he thinks of Quake Champions' gameplay, his new role as a commentator, etc.

The video can be found here : YouTube

_______

Extatiq works for Bethesda France as a Community Manager. He was in charge of the whole competition and stayed around the whole time to talk with people, see how the QC booth was going, etc. The interview is quite short and I had troubles with the microphone (that's why I used written questions in the video), and there were definitely questions I knew I couldn't ask like why there was no English coverage for the event and so on because he wouldn't be "authorized" to explain the reasons behind that publicly for instance. Anyway, I only asked him simple questions about the ESWC 2017 event in particular, what he felt about it, if it was a success in his opinion, and if Bethesda already had plans about next year for European / French competitions.

The video can be found here : YouTube


My other itws from this event : Poland Phaze, Sweden Spart1e, France Nykho

If you feel it's worth it, do not hesitate to follow EsportActu on twitter, facebook even if it's in French because content is sometimes international, and you might follow me on twitter too because I mostly tweet in English when covering events when given the occasion (@Infuscomus).

Doom Slayer: Jumping Hell in 1440p60 (7 comments)
Posted by zephyrin_xirdal @ 20:57 CST, 12 November 2017 - iMsg


The Doom Slayer's ability to double jump makes navigating maps a lot easier. Jumps are shown with keypresses and speed visible, and explained with slow motion and freeze frames. However, involuntarily initiating a double jump, due to surface geometry, can cause problems. Using autohopping maybe the solution. But then again it appears to be a somewhat "unclean" practice. Apart from that there is a bit of gaming history contained in the video. Namely the origin of the double jump.

Any of you friendly individuals jamming WW2?

Been smashing the 24/7 Carentan playlist on the PC.

So far I'm pretty impressed with the way the game plays.

I mainly snipe cause you know, rail gun eh?

I love hardpoint and domination, if any of you ever jammed COD2 Carentan was the shit.

The automatic rifles and smgs are kind easy as fuck to use, it's no fun dominating people, but rotating around the map with a few friends and forcing spawns is good fun.

I've personally always enjoyed the boots on the ground cod games from back in the day, especially cod 4 / promod.

So yeah, would be cool to know if any of you sexy bastards play.

BzK Nykho ITW @ESWC 2017 (5 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 08:28 CST, 9 November 2017 - iMsg
Quake Champions has seen many veterans going back to the franchise but also the rise of some players coming from other dimensions. This is where France Nicolas "Nykho" Sturla belongs to.

I always enjoy when unknown players, or sub-tops, get a bit of coverage, a share of the spotlights, so it was a pleasure for me to ask Nykho some questions and I hope you will find it entertaining and interesting too because he is definitely willing to keep playing and take part in more competitions in the future.

Nykho had a very close fight against Karwick in the ESWC 2017 group stage, and previously did some honourable performances online too. In this interview, Nykho told us where he comes from, what he felt for his very first Quake international event, his plans for the future and his style as a player.

Overwatch Now Has a Hero With Ledge-jump Abilities (7 comments)
Posted by WTFProoF?! @ 11:53 CST, 7 November 2017 - iMsg
Overwatch's newest Support Hero "Moira", currently playable on the Publich Test Realm Server and set to release sometime during the next weeks, has as a teleport-type ability called "Fade" in her kit that allows her to travel a set distance while being invisible and invincible. Unlike Tracer's Blink ability the player can actually control Moira while she uses Fade. What Blizzard, probably, didn't intend though is that when used at a geometry-object of a certain height Moira can propel herself into the air and gain a lot of momentum doing so making it possible to reach certain spots on the map that she normally wouldn't be able to reach with her normal walk/jump moves. All in all the ability looks very similar to ledge-jumps (double-jumps?) present in games like Quake 2, War§ow and Quake Live. Here's a video of what you can do with Moira's Fade ability at the moment:



I think Winz might be very pleased with this new Hero if Blizzard doesn't remove these properties from Moira's Fade ability.

I asked Spart1e about his performance in the final against United Kingdom GaRpY, what he thought about the ESWC, about Quake Champions, and his plans for the next few months.

Many thanks to him for taking the time to do this interview, and again sorry for my hesitating English.

QC Questionnaire #1 - Results (66 comments)
Posted by Memento_Mori @ 08:57 CST, 5 November 2017 - iMsg
Earlier this week, I posted a questionnaire about your opinion on Quake Champions. The questionnaire was distributed on esr, reddit, discord, and facebook. As I'm typing this, 252 responses have been collected. The raw results will keep updating as new data comes in, but I felt there was enough to do a review.






TL;DR
- People care about Quake Champions. Technical problems are affecting too many people.
- People are not happy with the current duel. They would like to see the 3 frag limit removed in favor of a timelimit, and map control and positioning to be more important than they are right now.
- Disregarding balance issues, people are positive about the introduction of champions, and their differentiation using movement, abilities, stack and hitbox.
- Balance is a mess.
- Sacrifice is possibly fun to play but crap to spectate.

Myztro Phaze Interview @ESWC 2017 (4 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 08:52 CST, 5 November 2017 - iMsg
Hello everybody. As most of you may already know, I was at the Paris Games Week to follow the Quake Champions competition this week. I took many pictures that you'll find in the QC forums but I also did some small videos and especially some interviews.

Unfortunately, due to my busy schedule and so on, I couldn't prepare my coverage like a boss, and I only found a microphone on the very last day so I couldn't interview lots of players that I wanted to talk to (mostly sub-tops like Poland Karwick, Poland Pikawa, etc.)

Still, I've had the pleasure to meet Poland Wiktor "Phaze" Skwarczynski from the Myztro Gaming team and ask him some questions.

In this interview, Phaze talked about his background as a player, what he felt for his first tournament @ ESWC 2017, the current state of the game, how he joined Myztro Gaming, etc.

You will find the video here (in English with France French subtitles) : YouTube

This is not the only interview I did. There is one with Sweden Spart1e coming up in the very next hours, as well as others with France Zulua (a.k.a dRone, caster at the event), France Nykho (player that we'll see more of in the future) and also France Extatiq, the Community Manager for Bethesda France.

Please forgive me for any hesitations and mistakes in English during the interview, I'm used to hear, read and write English but it was a very long time I didn't actually speak so it's sloppy. I hope you don't mind too much.

Quake Champions CHEATS (29 comments)
Posted by Jamerio @ 21:06 CDT, 4 November 2017 - iMsg
I am noticing a lot of players hacking in FFA lately, and sadly these players are not even being banned from the game despite it being obvious and I have come across them several times in the last week.

These two are 100% cheating and its not even subtle, their MG and LG are about twice as good as the best pro you ever played.

ModernGosu 100%
Simon4Ever 100%


Write the names down exactly as they appear in game along with a percentage of how sure you are (if and when they come along) and it should show up in google, so they can at least be known or a profile built up upon them to make it easier.

It features a convenient installer that automatically downloads the shareware version of Quake along with the modern ezQuake client along with some other goodies and a tuned config etc. Recently some configuration updates have been made to improve the user experience even further as there have been a few usability issues creeping into the package. These are now ironed out, so check out the changelog, sample screenshot and download the game to get started!

Windows 10 circular acceleration/drift (6 comments)
Posted by LLih @ 06:19 CDT, 4 November 2017 - iMsg
Hello

[NB: If you do not understand what I am trying to explain about the mouse movement/problem please just ask so we don't start this on different grounds]

This problem is very hard to explain properly. A lot of people mistake it for the cursor drifting after I have made a hand movement, it is not this. It is happening only when I move my hand/mouse.It is a problem with acceleration, sort of. When I move my mouse in a circle many times; fast or slow, but cursor at same original position on screen, my mouse is now either closer to top left or bottom right corner. This feels like some unexplainable acceleration I have no idea what to call it.Again: I put mouse from a point on mouse pad. Move it in circles up and down or sideways. slow and fast. put mouse back to original point, without lifting the mouse. And the cursor is now in a totally different position; either up or lower to a corner.

I tested this out almost 30 times to be sure it was not just me.I am a retired professional fps-gamer. I have never approached this problem before. It saddens me I can not enjoy my fps games the way I did before. My aim is just impossible to perfect, hell even clicking icons is hard.it is very frustrating to play DotA2 and PUBG with this. I constantly miss targets because my movement does not 100% correspond with the cursor movement.

- Mouse acceleration is put off
- I have tried several mice- several monitors
- even 3 computers
- tried 3 different pads
- seems to have to do with windows 10 but can not confirm

Additional note. It seems to be more prominent when I play DotA2. Not so much with Quake Champions but it is still there, massively affecting my Railgun aim. After I launch the game in full screen, it seems to make the cursor do it more. The problem is still there originally, but it makes it even more prominent. It does not become more prominent with other games but it is still a major problem.

Windows 10 64
7700K
Strix GTX 1080Ti
750W Corsair Modular
BenQ XL2540
AsRock Z270 Pro4
16Gb Ram
M.2 256Gb SSD

Attempts tried to solve the problem:
- MarkC Mouse fix
- several mice, pads, monitors and even different computers. (Seems more prominent on desktop pc with large screen) Problem is less prominent on 15" laptop but is still there.
-Turned off windows acceleration in mouse options

Before the Clutch patch (15 comments)
Posted by Gravgon @ 14:52 CDT, 3 November 2017 - iMsg
I've been following the evolution of QC since the beginning and I remember a short period during which the champion system was really interesting and enjoyable to spectate (in duel mode i mean)

Maybe I'm wrong and I don't remember it so well but it was right before they released the patch that made Clutch a flying robot.

I remember Cypher using Galena, toxjq using Scalebarer, some other pros using BJ Blazkowicz.
Visor was also picked sometimes to counter Nyx. There was also Strenx using Ranger and killing it with the Dire orb.

Now it seems people only use Anarki, Nyx, Sorlag + Slash and that new Doom guy every once in a while.

So my question is: what happened ? Did they fuck up the whole balance with that patch ? Or it's just that the pros hadn't figured out which champions were the most efficient at the time ?

Italian esports ERROR additional indicators (2 comments)
Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 14:20 CDT, 3 November 2017 - iMsg
Groups results 2-1 for all 6 players.

http://wiki.teamliquid.net/quake/ESL/2017/Ita...en#Results

But on NAVI site i read that would be additional games for group A
On Virtus pro site i read that Cypher go home

What? The scores are the same! 2-1 for all.

In that case must be additional games for group B too!

Another solution - additional indicators.

But additional indicators - very controversial case! You need to know game very well for implement such indicators!

For example i say: Additional indicators for quake- number of frags
And you say: number of losted rounds
And someone say: all duration of games in seconds(who win faster)
Or: Used champions
Or: inflicted damage during games

very controversial !!!!!

We need to spam Italian esports and ask for additional games in group B too!!

ONLY Additional games - would solve the problem!

Hey,


After the revival of 2v2 TDM, CA might come back to House of Quake as well.
I know it's not Quake and stuff ), but every competitive activity just makes things better for QL and for us, so I definitely support the incentive to reinstate the game mode into the league.


Here're two polls about the issue. The first one is trying to get a rough idea on how many people would be interested in playing:

http://www.strawpoll.me/14318054


The second one is about which format the community would prefer if CA will indeed make a comeback to the league:

http://www.strawpoll.me/14317915


Never tried to make a poll before, hope it works right.


C'mon bruvanskis, let's try to give QL a new life together.

I also took some small videos but it's taking forever so I'll upload them little by little.

I'd like to do interviews tomorrow but : 1) I don't know if I'll make it to Paris alive, 2) I need to find a microphone to plug in the camera or else we won't hear anything.

Posted by mikeMARTINco @ 12:13 CDT, 1 November 2017 - iMsg
I've been piecing this together for about two weeks, several people helped, you know who you are thank you. It's made to centralize everything in one location to help new players, friends, returning players to get started as I feel the game has just reached a playable state with the last patch. So if you have a friend that had issues but wants to play share this with them, or a friend that wasn't sure he should buy it, I feel its safe now. If I can get 90fps on an AMD 965 paired with a 680, anybody can play.

No matter who you are, I'm sure there is something you didn't know in the guide, enjoy. ~Runningman

Cooller interviews rapha about the current state of QC (43 comments)
Posted by Dbzruler72 @ 17:39 CDT, 31 October 2017 - iMsg
Cooller and rapha talking it: link

Gameplay
- rapha doesn't like current QC duel but likes sacrifice. Fast champs are too viable, especially in sacrifice. They can rush in without being punished. Good position doesn't mean much anymore.
- Duel is about (1) who can rush first and hit the first rocket or (2) play far rail game. Cooller argues Clutch + defensive play is the counter to the rush style.
- Use MG more against Clutch.
- Most of the game is fine, but LG nerf is ineffective against the fast champions
- rapha suggests raising the health for all champions, even if that means going over 200/200. Lighter champs having more health and armour makes for longer fights, and people will be willing to take more engagements since they have more health to fall back on.
- Would like to see a format change (e.g., lives, time limit). There isn't enough incentive to fight
- Rounds are either 40 seconds or all five minutes; there is no back-and-forth feel to the game
- Sacrifice is fun to play, although it's still difficult to spectate

The future
- Both Cooller and Rapha are unsure about QC's future. Id says they will support the game, but there has yet to be any plan.
- Community needs support each other, especially with new players. Pros should come up with instructional content. Quake is more fun when you know what you're doing. New player can be discouraged when they see other players flying around the map and have no idea how to do that.
- Realistically speaking, Quake won't ever get to CS level. Quake's too hard, but it can have its own place.

Misc
- rapha isn't discouraged about his comparatively low placings in QC tournies. Just needs more consistent play, though he says he's currently playing better in sacrifice than in duel
- NA sacrifice scene is good practice. NA duel is not.
- Even if you have strong positioning, Raisy will attack through bad angles and use his speed to eventually end up in a good position. Consider at all times that he might fully engage you. Players will eventually adapt, forcing Raisy to play a little smarter
- At QC, Evil told rapha that he's having some technical problems at home. After playing some warmup games with Evil, rapha noticed that Evil's still using his QL style of position and pressure. Evil hasn't adapted to QC's game flow, especially since the new health/armour spawn times means that players can quickly stack back up in comparison to QL. Evil's aim is still excellent.
- Cooller points out that Evil took 1-2 years in QL to become a top player. Might be the same case here
- rapha and Dahang are resigning with Team Liquid. He's happy with them. If they need better practice in EU, Team Liquid will fly them out there.

I especially like rapha's suggestion for increasing health and armour pools across the board. If they were increased to the point that they overcame abilities' importance, abilities would be more tools than cruxes and would put more of the Quake back in Quake Champions.

Also glad there's some word out on how Evil's been doing.

A proper duel format for QC (50 comments)
Posted by adem @ 13:40 CDT, 31 October 2017 - iMsg
I find the current QC duel boring and limited in terms of gameplay combinations that could happen during one game on one map. Why it is limited and boring?

- There always will be stronger and weaker champions
- Giving to player only 3 picks limits his abilities to adjust his gameplay to an enemy
- In result any duel is usually a clash of 3-4 champions which are strongest at this moment
- Round-based champions annihilation is a quite boring and non-intensive action, as it is about rounds and not about players' creativity in terms of planning the whole match & making frags
- And the last - it doesn't have that spirit of old duels at all. Just imagine a boxing match where each fighter needs only 3 punches to win a round...

So here is an idea of a proper duel format for QC from an old duel lover:

Pre-game phase:
- No rounds, only frags
- 10 minutes timelimit with sudden death on even frag score
- A player bans - B player bans - A player picks - B player picks
- Bans are common for both players
- Picks can be the same
- Amount of start bans can be increased in the future

In-game after your death:
- You can mark one champion for ban even the one used by your enemy, but the actual ban happens only after pressing "Respawn", so you can pick and ban the same champion
- You can't mark for ban if you have performed a self-kill
- There is no 3 seconds delay before pressing "Respawn" button, it is just a waste of time that gives advantage to the enemy. In other words pressing SPACE button means ban the marked champion and spawn with the selected champion now
- Enemy champion should be pre-picked on the selection screen after your death, so you can skip banning and just spawn with the same champion by pressing SPACE
- If you didn't spawn in 5 seconds you'll be forced to spawn with the same hero as your enemy has
- The last champion can't be banned

So in result we have:
- Ability to ban strongest enemy champion on pre-game phase
- Similar to vanilla duel map/item control gameplay (imo it wasn't that bad as developers think)
- New strategic depth of gameplay with wide variaty of pick-bans during the match, also ban wars if both players gets fragged at the same time
- Wide ability to make a counter pick in-game, not only on pre-game phase that is currently limited by 3 heroes
- Ability to make a great comeback until the timelimit hits as it was before in QL and in older Quake versions
- A possible clash of the same champions with multiple frags in late stage of the game

So that's it, please share your opinions, post your ideas about duel changes. I'd like to know if you like it or no, so then I can try to sum everything and share it with developers in order to make QuakeChampions better. Thanks for reading!

Update 2017.11.18: Seems like developers aware of most issues explained here and they are gonna explore possible duel mods in the future: https://www.plusforward.net/quake/post/41248/...es-Nov-17/

Hello guys. I will be at eswc tomorrow and then on to follow the Quake competition. I intend to try to make lots of pictures, perhaps videos and interviews. Just let me know if you want to see something in particular, know something about players' stuff, or want me to ask specific questions to players and so on.

I will try to do what I can. I will use Twitter I think, so you might want to follow me there (i never use it, i created the account for DH Summer 2012 and I don't think I will use it for something else than LAN coverage or Quake news). I think it's @Infuscomus, with a "bad taste" avatar.

Friday, Oct 27, 2017 Live Stream Session

Quake Champions Community Managers
Andre 'MortalEmperor' Carlos
Joshua 'TokyoPunchOut' Boyle

______________________________________

Bullet Points of Discussion:

Q2 Railgun
Q2 Railgun corkscrew trail effect will become blue in color (currently green) as it is not finished yet. (Was not supposed to be released yet, and is green by default, but long story short, it will become blue soon.)

Oct 26 Patch
Oct 26 Patch has the 'Terror Billy' skin and hype for the release of Wolfenstein: The New Colossus out now.

Oct 26 Patch has fixed the 1 FPS loss that occurred per each player in a match. It was most noticeable in TDM, DM and Sacrifice (as Duel only has 2 players obviously). Also, the initial dropped frame at the start of a match seems to be fixed too.

Majority of players are reporting on reddit, discord and bethesda forums that the Oct 26 patch has improved the game performance for them. However, if a player is still having issues with the above frame issues, then please continue giving the feedback. It is greatly appreciated

The devs and the issues
The devs and the staff know about the issues - from the feedback they receive in submitted reports, forums and discord. The devs also play the game daily and experience the issues themselves firsthand. Thus, the issues are always being worked on.

The staff have daily meetings to discuss the issues, the feedback, the game play, the roadmap of development and so on.

It will take time to get the game optimized to end result goal. The analogy of the netcode being a 'bucket' of things still applies. The 'bucket' has holes and the holes are patched with the patches and updates.

Quake Community
The Quake community is amazing and the devs appreciate the patience and the feedback. The Quake community is one of the strongest gaming communities - it is like a family. Together, this family working together will get there!

Live Streams
Planning on doing Live Stream Sessions every-other-week on Fridays.

Today was the Community Managers first time doing a Live Session (previously, only the devs were doing Live Sessions.)
So in two weeks, there will be another Live Session.

The plan is to alternate who does the Live Sessions - maybe the devs will do the next one, etc. They want to get different people in the Live Sessions too. This means that the Community Managers will be doing more Live Sessions along with other staff members from time to time.

Official Discord
There is now an official discord channel at discord.gg.quake
Check it out, talk to other players and talk to the devs there too.
Make friends in discord to play the game and have fun!

Last Weekend
Last weekend (Oct 20-22) was busy with TwitchCon and DreamHack Denver. 'MortalEmperor' was at TwitchCon while 'TokyoPunchOut' attended DreamHack Denver.
Both events were great fun and very happy with the attendance and participation and viewers.

It is great to see 'new faces' in the Quake tournament(s) final results for top finishers - so far at QuakeCon and DreamHack Denver.

Upcoming Events & Announcements
Next up is ESWC and Italian Open - both tournaments in the first weekend of November (Nov 1-4 date range). 'TokyoPunchOut' working on a forum listing section for tournament announcements and results - so all this information will be handy and available in one place.

-----

'TokyoPunchOut' then played two TDM matches and one DM match while 'MortalEmperor' and he were answering Twitch chat questions during the Live Stream.

in-game mouse sensitivity -
'TokyoPunchOut' currently uses in-game mouse sensitivity at .375 with 3200 DPI while 'MortalEmperor' (who did not play today) said he currently uses in-game mouse sensitivity of .9 with 800 DPI. Everyone is different and must find what works best for them. (Sidenote: I hope I caught the numbers correctly - especially the DPI numbers - as they spoke fast in this section.)

Hit boxes -
Hitbox changes are coming as everyone knows. The new hit boxes will be a 'blanket' style (like a static mesh) to shore up holes in the pixel perfect hit detection.

Hit boxes will still be different sizes per champions but ALL hit boxes will be increased in size along with the new 'blanket' style of hit box. (Thus, heavy champions will still have larger hit boxes than the lighter champions.)

The hit box changes will make hit registration more 'consistent' than it is now.

IMPORTANT: Hit box changes will NOT be in the November patch / update. There will also probably NOT be any new content changes in the November patch / update - as the goal for November is a continuation of the Oct 26 patch for more performance improvements.

Friends -
It is more fun to play any game with friends. If you need in-game friends, hang out at discord or the forums and participate with the community.

More on the Quake Community -
Again, the community is amazing. The community tutorials and videos are great (such as those done by ZenAku, Rocket Jumping Ninja, zoot and his casting of events, Noctis and his rocket shooting tips - he goes more by prediction than just always aiming at an opponent's feet, etc etc etc)

Again, the devs play the game and are very aware of the issues. They experience the issues first hand. Even in today's Live Stream, it was possible a quick boot-to-screen crash occurred, but 'TokyoPunchOut' was able to re-join the same TDM match in a matter of moments. He also stated it may have been his own user error - as he may have escaped/quit by accident. Just an example of things that the devs experience themselves and are always working on.

The community is a vast asset of help. Mostly because there are only so many 'test' pc's being used in house. The community will find and expose so many more issues by the volume of players and pc's playing the game. So again, keep up the feedback.

Nowadays, players are more connected to a game's development than in the past - whether they realize it or not. This helps the development because there are so many things to discover and report.

Gauntlets -
The gauntlet range is based on the bigger (heavy) champions hit box size and is currently carried over to ALL the champions. Thus, the devs are looking at adjusting the gauntlet range to be associated with each champion's hit box when using it. For example, Anarki's (light champion) gauntlet range will be lessened than what it currently is now. This is still being discussed for a future patch, etc.

Net code -
Always working on - as everyone knows.

Game balance -
Always monitoring, with tweaks being done - as everyone knows. As new champions are brought into the game, the balance will change. This is a good thing - it shakes things up. At the same time, new champions possibly trigger balance tweaks - as balance is constantly monitored and tweaked, etc. Things that are 'over powered' are part of balance (tweaks).

Cross Hairs -
One of the 'quality of life' things that are coming.

Roadmap (4th quarter - end of 2017) -
A communication on the roadmap (4th quarter - end of 2017) is being planned. Stay tuned.
Tentative plans and goals, etc.

Game Play Tips -
Have fun first and foremost. Winning is nice, but have fun - and it is easier to have fun playing with friends (see above on discord, etc).
Pick your battles. Quake is about not dying. Don't always engage every single battle with a plus-forward mentality.

Ranked Mode -
Ranked mode planned for end of 2017, so it is coming soon.
Currently, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond and Elite are ranks, but this is subject to change!

Seasons -
Seasons are something being discussed and are pending, but no news on it yet.

Tutorials -
An advanced movement tutorial is being planned.
The current tutorial (balloon shooting) is being improved upon too.

Matchmaking -
It is based on skill level. However, to get a player in a match as fast as possible, the system 'expands' the search after a certain amount of time to include more players in the search. This can sometimes match a player in with higher skilled players, etc. Obviously, as the pool of players grows, the matchmaking gets closer to matching.
The devs are aware of how uneven matches occur and are always looking at improving the system too.

Note: XP is not skill level, as most already know. XP is just the number of matches and the time played. A 1-XP player with heavy FPS experience can (and does) dominate a 30-XP player who plays very casually. So do not let high XP numbers influence your thinking too much on matchmaking (good or bad) in every match.

Defrag -
Once again, nothing being planned for it at the moment.

CTF -
Once again, Capture The Flag mode is being planned.

Mods -
Instagib, community maps, other modes (FreezeTag) - once again, NOTHING being planned for any modding allowed right now. However, in the future, modding MAY be welcomed and allowed - as mods have always been a part of every Quake. Once again, thank you for your patience as the game has a lot of things to be worked on first.

Community Help and the Low FPS related to Low Fire Rate bug -
As stated in the Bethesda forums - a perfect example of the community feedback and discovery helping with the development of the game. Also, as stated in the Bethesda forums, the problem has been identified and the solution is now in the works and will be released in an upcoming patch.

Another example of the community help was the bug for Canadian players who could not fire their weapons. With their feedback (KSVIA numbers, IPs, bug reports), the devs could isolate the problem and were able to resolve it.

There are too many examples to list - of all the community help so far. The devs thank you and appreciate it very much.

Quake Art Contest -
A quick Quake Art Contest going on right now - until Halloween night Oct 31!
More information here:
https://bethesda.net/community/topic/117052/e...rt-contest

Next Live Stream -
In two weeks (Friday, 11-10-17).
More talk, more game play, more prizes - which MAY include some Quake Caps. They will check into that!

Note: This Live Session was about 1 1/2 hours with a peak viewer total of 650.

Extra Message Below From 'MortalEmperor'
(from Thursday, Oct 26, 2017, in the Bethesda Forums)


Q. "Why does vanity content come out when there are still issues with the game? Does this mean vanity is more important than fixing existing problems in Quake Champions?"

A. So, this may not be evident to everyone, but not everyone on a development team works on all aspects of the game.

Dev teams have different departments for different game design disciplines: programmers and game designers build the architecture of the game; people on the backend team work on netcode and other services; artists make maps, UI, models and textures, and yes--vanity items.

And these are all tasks that are working in tandem on a daily basis. The art team, for example, doesn't stop making art because the netcode isn't working properly. UI folks don't get to go home if a bug arises that needs to be addressed.

To put it succinctly: the people working on vanity items don't work on network code. Our artists work on building and texturing maps, they work on creating the Champions, they work on building the upcoming gore system, which btw is REALLY awesome.
They work on things that aren't related to the netcode. They don't touch the netcode, they don't fix bugs.

----

Q. "Ok, I understand that, but even so, why release that stuff at all when there are problems with the gameplay?"

A. As I said, work doesn't stop for any department based on what's going on in other departments.
While the backend team and the game design team are working on improving the overall experience for players, our art team is able to concentrate their creative energies on other things.

With The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II both releasing this month, we thought it'd be really cool if players who purchased either of those games could also get something fun in Quake Champions.

This decision did not hold up any efforts to work on netcode. It did not impede us investigating bugs or figuring out solutions.
(In fact, we're releasing a patch today that includes some fixes.) These vanity items were ready to go, and it made the most sense to tie them in with the release dates of TEW2 and Wolfenstein II.

----

Q. "Alright, you've convinced me. But I still have issues, and I'm upset. Do the devs even listen to us?"

A. The team IS listening. I'm not "just a PR guy," despite what you might think. My job is specifically to relay your honest, unfiltered, uncensored thoughts to the development team, and we have DAILY meetings and conversations about game direction, about the biggest issues our players are facing, and most importantly: what the heck we're going to do about it!

And I get that it's frustrating when your game experience isn't as fun as you'd expect. I completely, wholeheartedly understand. I can even understand where you're coming from with wondering why we've got cosmetic items going out into the store, and I hope I answered that questions to your satisfaction.
And we're making real efforts to become more transparent with what we're working on, how we're working on it, and how it benefits YOU, the player.

That's been the crux of our discussions recently, and everybody on the Quake Champions team is onboard. The proof is in the pudding though, and I hope we can prove that to you. We do ask, though, that you give us time.

I know that's not everyone's favorite thing to hear, but things will get better with time. We intend to make sure of it.

Thanks again for your posts and allowing me to clear up some things.

MortalEmperor (Quake Champions Community Manager)

How do you players deal with over confident opponents? (23 comments)
Posted by polterg00se @ 16:02 CDT, 30 October 2017 - iMsg
I have grumbled and ranted all throughout the time I've played Quake Live duel over the course of 3-4 years. I've made some great progress though, winning some tough games between 1800-2000+ elo players. The only thing that has worried and annoyed me the most with my inconsistencies in Quake Live is my inability to punish bad positioning from opponents when they rush me down. If you watch guys like Rapha punish bad positioning, or sometimes in Fraze's Quake Live duel tutorials, the opponent gets over zealous for getting frags, and with those two high level Quake players I see the bad pushes get instantly punished with good rockets and lg. I just watched a video of Rapha playing against Anarki in QC and he complained that because of the speed and hitbox of these champions, people can do absolutely dumb shit all the time and get away with it and they get the frag because they gain an advantage after they push through.

I heard all of the time how people don't have to have good aim, just play positionally. Well, I actually have this problem with Quake Live and that is why I avoided Quake Champions entirely (as I can't stop people from doing that in VQL). I feel like punishing players for dumb attacks would be the most important part of why Quake Live is played positionally, but it hasn't helped my game all that much.
The respect from the opponent isn't there, my aim isn't there and my body ain't ready. You would think that because Quake is heavily based on positioning and working the positions well, that players rushing through choke points and bad spots would know better but it just surprises me that I don't punish their actions. Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?

Am I even looking at this the correct way?!

Announcing the #cpmduel League (16 comments)
Posted by xerosawyer @ 14:46 CDT, 29 October 2017 - iMsg
We're proud to announce the #cpmduel League which will kick-off on November 11, 2017. This will be a weekly league, where players are split into three divisions: Invite, Main, and Beginner, and play other players in their respective division each week. After players have played all their group opponents once, the top players of every group, will face their rivals in the same division in a single elimination play-off bracket. Due to the nature of this league, things will be a little sophisticated, and we anticipate having different rules in terms of play-off advancement for the different divisions as they will have a different amount of players.

The admin group includes: Czech Republic neverGreen, Finland gaiia, and myself (Canada xero), with Slovakia Kimi|AHK, Russia DEZ, and Russia veliars acting as referees.

2GD did a quick update here: https://go.twitch.tv/videos/184792138

The party mode idea is great, reminds me of the micro party games in Starcraft that rotates different scenarios but you get to practice situations in a safe environment with no pressure.

Also 2gd's idea of it teleporting you around the map in ca, how about you design a map that different parts open up (or close) after a certain amount of rounds or maybe on which team wins or something?

The ones I had in mind:

CPU: Not sure. My monitor is Freesync. Is this relevant to CPU or GPU? If not then I gues I will stick to Intel unless you can prove me the new Rizen thing is much better, so far its not even better in DAW (music making) which is another hobby I have beside gaming. I do some video editing too. So let's say I get the Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7Ghz BOX (400€)


CPU FAN: (The big Noctua one that's the most silent not sure)

MOBO: I want the Fatal1ty one with the USB port that allows you to run the WMO at 500 or 1000hz without the annoying test mode drivers, but im not sure what one to buy because that one must be too old for the new CPU socket and m.2 SSD

RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury White DDR4 2133Mhz PC4-17000 32GB 2x16GB CL14 (297€)

SSD: Samsung 960 EVO m.2 1TB (446€)


Aaarrgh i need some help to know if everything will be compatible.

Scheduled: 22:00 CDT, 28 October 2017 to 00:00 CDT, 29 October 2017
Schedule: Passed

I know it's probably not the best timing for NA/EU but if you're up, come check out the games between Corvidae's Australia Steej and JAM Gaming's Australia Astroboy. These two have secured their spots as the best two in Australia winning flights to both Sweden Dreamhack and PAX Melbourne (on this weekend). The match will be showcased at the AMD booth, setup central to the venue, and will feature myself and ZenAku on the mic casting. ZenAku will also be doing "frag a pro" duel sessions versus the PAX audience Friday/Saturday and Sunday to warm up attendee's to the format and style of Duel.
