Jigglypuff is the new king and... legit (1 comment)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 22:33 CDT, 1 July 2016 - iMsg
ItalyJigglypuff won a 2v2 CA cup organized by one of the coolest guy on earth, UkraineURAZ. That was a couple of month ago.
He played with italian superstar ItalyHal, and they won the final against some top german CA players (including for example GermanyTodesknecht, who was in the top5 world in CA when qlranks was still alive). That was some months ago, and now, ItalyJiggly is stronger than ever. Let me explain to you guys why he's the new king.

First of all, I know him for a long time now, and I've seen him improve again and again over the years. He's playing Quake Live only. He's a very dedicated player, and a true Quake player, just as I like them. 100% Quake, 0% other game(s). I just love this kind of mentality. He didn't even jump in the OW bandwagon, he doesn't even care about the OW hype. Like I said, a true Quaker.

Some years ago, he was far from the best, he was still more than decent, but not the hardest player to play against, that's for sure. He could lose to quite a lot of players, he was still good, but didn't have that special stuff that makes a player above everyone.

But that's not the case anymore.
Quite recently, he bought a mechanical keyboard and he's playing with the logitech g300s. For sure, these gears improved both his aim and his dodges. But ofc the gears don't make the player, so if he's now better than ever, that's mainly because of dedication and practicing against and with the best CA players.

Recently I played him serveral times, it was pretty even, if he were onfire he would beat me, if I were focused I would beat him.
But tonight I played him again, and I felt his true potential, power and effectiveness.
We played 2v2's, I was always against him, we played almost LG only, because he is, just like me, a LG-heavy player. We both have LG as our favorite weapon. And we both have the goal to become the best LG players in EU.
And guess what ? He won 6-7 maps to 2 or something, he had best dmgs and accuracy against me.
It didn't feel like when I used to play against Serbiaserious, it didn't feel like he was unbeatable, but he still had this extra something that was enough to beat me. Both his dodges and aim were spot on.

After our games, I asked him if he already played ItalyHal in 1v1 recently. He basically said "yes, and I won 10:9 in 1v1 and then we played 2v2, I was mainly against him and had better net/score/dmgs[...]".

When you play against him, you can really feel that something is special, because, unlike some aim-whores, his dodges are also very good. The way he's playing is very ballzy and effective. He doesn't play like a bitch by switching to rockets etc... When he loses a shaft battle, he keeps trying until he wins. I like this kind of mentality.

Talking about mentality, ItalyJigglypuff is a very humble and friendly dude, he never trash-talk, never troll, and almost never rage. He has the mentality of a true champion really, he has his feet on the ground, and he even never pretented to be #1, unlike many of us, including me :D.

For all these reasons I declare him to be the new king of 2v2 CA. If you meet him on a server, remember, he's the king :). He deserves to be respected for both his mentality and combat-skills.

People need to know more about him, because he's a very interesting player.

Thank you if you read it all :)

Woman vs man and ELO distribution in QL (7 comments)
Posted by aiken @ 17:58 CDT, 1 July 2016 - iMsg
I was wondering today how different women are from men in terms of intellectual competition. It's proven fact in stats of most of sport disciplines that physically women have natural disadvantage. Looking at running world records at different distances usually women records are at level of around 10% lower from men results. There might be higher difference in weight lifting though.

This explains why we run separate competition, but what with disciplines like chess, esport or other technical sports where most important factor is technique, accuracy, but not physical strength or endurance (e.g. shooting sports).

I found this interesting article about ELO distribution in man and woman chess players populations: (TLDR: see ELO graphs)

I'm too lazy at the moment to read all text too to know of how many of the games were between two different sex. Men seems to be slightly better in average and on the top. Men graph ends at 2840 elo and women at 2680 and most of the space above 2500 is empty or below estimated gauss prediction line. So there's not many woman at the very top level compared to man.

There's not much to discuss about here, because these are just statistical facts. I want to ask general question if is there anyone having dump of database stats from QLRanks to plot such graphs for QL players population? I think it may be interesting, not for comparing man and woman but just itself since sex of players are unknown.

Also does anyone remember what was the max ELO ever achieved in QL? Was it rapha or evil?

The runs in this movie are tool-assisted, utilizing scripts and special software.
The game physics were not altered. Nonetheless, these records are excluded from the official rankings.
The runs in this movie are performed on the maps from the competition DFWC2012.

This is my first movie and I have no editing skills, so please don't expect much. If you like scripted runs, I hope you like these =)

INSIGHT - Arena FPS game on Greenlight (12 comments)
Posted by insightFPS @ 20:56 CDT, 30 June 2016 - iMsg
Here is the Greenlight campaign and trailer for a game I've been working on by myself for over a year:

This isn't simply another Quake remake, it is an arena FPS that has been built from scratch with an original concept. There are many influences from games such as Q3, HL, CS, but the unique gameplay is something new.

My goal is to get this greenlit and backed on Kickstarter soon, so that the game can be further developed with other people helping out to improve the overall quality of the game.

There has been a large focus on making sure the game and concept is fit for competitive gaming, so I thought it may interest some of you. And while there will be fun / easy / casual game modes to play around on, the game is a competitive arena FPS at its core.

If you have a Steam account, please log in and vote YES if you might be interested in playing the game when it's released.

Help finding a more comfortable mouse? (2 comments)
Posted by lugan @ 21:30 CDT, 29 June 2016 - iMsg
I've had a Zowie FK for a few years now and have always wondered if there is a better mouse. My problem is that it feels very unnatural for my ring finger and becomes uncomfortable after awhile. This is an album of how I most naturally hold my mouse. See how my ring finger is crooked? I am wondering if anyone knows of a mouse that will fit my natural grip style. My hand is about 19.2cm long and 9cm wide.

I would prefer if the cost was under 60USD. The sensor does not have to be the best, just decent, and I would also love for it to be less than 90g if possible. If it's not crazy heavy the grip is priority. Right now I mainly play quake so these features are important to me. I don't really care about anything else.

I have an old kinzu that feels more comfortable on the right hand side. The problem is the mouse is overall a little too small and the sensor or USB is fucked (it randomly stops working).

Any suggestions on similar mice that have a 'better shape' for my right ring finger? I am hoping to find something that feels a part of my hand. Right now finger feels 'annoyed.' It feels stuck, with a bunch of tension, and no where to go.

I mainly claw/fingertip.

Wise words from a wise russian dude :) (47 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 20:24 CDT, 28 June 2016 - iMsg
So basically I played 10 games or something against one of my russian friend nzx (aka exet aka faze, top russian CA player). As you know, now that I'm on 144hz 250fps + same settings and razer abyssus for years he didn't win a single map, but still did good actually.
During our games I asked him if he ever played latrommi, cooller or cypher at CA. He said "yes)".
Asked him if they any good at CA, there again, he said "they're good".
Later on, when our little practice session was over, after the usual "gg's good night cya hf! :)" he said this to me in steam chat :

But the question is and remains : Why can't I get off thunderstruck ? :( Playing 2v2/1v1 on thunder with music is one of the best feeling I experienced during my whole life :D. I must be kind of autistic or something, but you all already know, I'm mentally ill and I take meds so that could explain it xD.

Dismiss Tim Willits (26 comments)
Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 17:00 CDT, 27 June 2016 - iMsg
May be Timm Willits just speaking head, we don't know actually what person we need to dismiss.. anyway...

I looked his interview. Here he tells some things

- Multiplayer of Doom= good. Those who tells that not= wrong

But we know that Doom 4 multiplayer = shit. So he not agree with our competent opinion.

Also Its sounds like "Quake Champions Good and those who say not are wrong" after Quake Champions release...

If i wrong tell me Tim Willits ELO duel rating in Quake Live...

- We want Cooller to love Quake Champions

We all know that if you pay to Cooller he say what you want. I mean overwatch and mouse brands(both are shit and have high price).

Also he thought that Quake Live players not have own opinion and do everything that Cooller says.

Also here my suggestions about new Quake . Lets compare my suggestions and "Timm Willits" suggestions

At the end of this post i want to offer you all to dismiss Tim Willits. We need to email Bethesda about it and ask to dismiss Tim Willits

This is a speed-run of Quake 3 Arena single player in Nightmare difficulty.

I made a small intro which looked silly on paper and looks even stupider now. But I decided to leave it :)

Youtube link

This is the last run I will ever make of this game, it took way too much time and effort, and I'm not even satisfied with the results.

Also : Don't expect pro-player aim here, I'm just a random guy. But this is the world record as far as I know.

New info on Quake Champions (71 comments)
Posted by Ward_- @ 14:57 CDT, 27 June 2016 - iMsg

•2017 Release

• Quake Champions will have Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. They're are also working on a team based Mode for E-Sports

•id thinks that 5v5 is the optimal player number for a team based mode

•Every Champion will have a passive ability that affects its movement and every champion will have an active special ability. For example the hero Ranger from the teaser can throw a "Dire Orb" and can teleport to its location. So are Telefrags possible?

•The champions don't have a special weapons. Also there is no loadout like in Doom. Instead are all weapons and Items on the map as pickups

•Rocket Launcher, Railgun and Lighting Gun are in Quake Champions

•A "classic" mods without Champions is not planned. But it is possible

•In Quake Champions there will be Matchmaking, a Ranking System and Seasons.

•Quake Champions will focus on E-Sports. This include special game modes, a Spectator modes and Tournaments organized and sponsored by id and Bethesda

•Quake Champion could be Free2Play. But it isn't sure. They are testing a various of business models. The developer want the big as possible player base for the game

Top5 of the reasons you love Quake™ (16 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 17:07 CDT, 24 June 2016 - iMsg
I start :

#1 The weapons:
What can i say ? I LOVE the simplicity and the way the quake weapons work. You have top tier weapons, and the rest. It just work wonderfully. Long range: rail; med range: lg; close range: rl, as simple as that but yet insanely hard to master. Once you understand how the weapons work it's pure joy to play quake really. The weapons are so well designed and fun to play, as well as very balanced which makes it a very unique experience.
Also, no gimmicks, the weapons are simple and no alternate fire or some other gimmicks bullshit.
And players are building their playstyles around the weapons, which is the true beauty of quake.
And ofc when you use a weapon it feels very satisfying, i mean, the feeling of the weapons is unmatched.

#2 The movements:
Quake without strafe-jumping or bunny-hopping or both, isn't quake. Defrag runs and trickjumps movies are VERY impressive to watch and doing them as well as moving through the maps is very enjoyable. Pretty simple movements mechanics, but still VERY hard to master, which makes players like w3sp, dex, v3rb or walter look very unique. I have a lot of respect for these movements masters.

#3 The content:
Duel, TDM, CTF, instagib, freezetag, CA, defrag and some less popular gametypes but still fun like Domination, and the ammount of different maps to play, everyone can find something he loves. Yes, the community is probably a little bit too much splitted, but let's be honest, if you play quakeworld or quake 2 or warsow or reflex or quakelive, whatever, you're still considered a quaker in my eyes :). Whatever gametype you play, whatever quake you play, you're still a quaker :). Unlike games like CS:GO where there's basically only 1 gametype and like 5-7 maps played.
Quake is huge in that regard comparing to most others fps.

#4 The community:
Guys, you can't imagine how much i love you all. Esreality is the best gaming website i know, I load it up everyday each time i start my computer. It's full or trolls, attention whores, retards, everyday normal guys, very honest and serious guys, some geniuses, good contributors to the community, hardcore quake players, funny guys, and so on. It has everything you need to entertain you really. And i didn't even mention the charisma of most of the pros quake players.

#5 The deepness of the gameplay:
Out of all the multiplayer games I played my whole life, Quake is probably the deepest, gameplay-wise. Like i said above, it's simple to understand, but so so hard to master. You can spend your whole life playing bloodrun or thunderstruck only and you will still always have rooms to improve. It's endless.
It's so amazing to see players like evil or k1llsen play bloodrun in 2016, and compare it to the early days of this map. The overall skill of the pros has so much improved throughout all these years, it's beautiful, just beautiful.
The only game i can think of, that can somewhat compare to quake concerning its skill-celling, is starcraft. Really it's the only game. Quake is unique :).

Big random problem. (26 comments)
Posted by Zhu_Cx @ 09:29 CDT, 23 June 2016 - iMsg
Suddenly when playing quake today i noticed something was odd with the moment, ive now realised that at random moments my +forward wont really register, this can be noted in my strafe jumps getting slower and sometimes when i hold forward+strafe when walking it only registers the strafe for like a 0,5 second. All this stuff combined may seem like a minor thing but it actually fucks up everything.

Here comes the weird thing, my keyboard works perfectly in other game and theres nothing wrong with it at all. I tried with a brand new default config in quake and still had the same thing. Yesterday I had none of mysterious shit.

Im googling around on this and find absolutely nothing. Does anyone have the slightest clue to what it could be? Cause this is unplayable for me.

Happy Birthday Quake!!!

Quake is a very important part of my life and I enjoy it since 1998!
I've met a lot of great people in this time (some of them are my best friends to this day) and had a lot of fun, quake was the place to go when feeling sad, or when I was just stressed out and wanted to relief some pressure, or when I wanted to save some money and not go out :P .. but in the majority of the time I played it because it made me happy :) and I was feeling awesome when playing it.
Last year I started a tattoo sleeve and I wanted to give my tribute to QUAKE, an amazing culture and passion :).
I wanted something to represent the good and evil, so I present to you:
Uriel: the angel who wears the scars of the countless battles. (his face is taken from a gargoyle from the 'I Frankenstein' movie)
Klesk: the alien devil who is about to take the quad damage. (I was feeling evil almost every time when taking quad, like I was given an evil super power, trying to kill as many enemies as possible)

(Pics are taken from the 1st days of the tattoos, they are healed now, If you want to see pics with the rest of the sleeve, I saved some here.)

<3 Quake

Congratulations Quake - 20 years today! (67 comments)
Posted by Åke Vader @ 05:06 CDT, 22 June 2016 - iMsg
Today it has been 20 years since the gateways to other dimensions went operational as id Software released Quake to the masses. Featuring fascinating technological advancements and a gameplay that could turn anyone into a online gaming addict, collectively generating billions in revenue for the internet service providers, it took the players by storm.

Throughout the years the game has been maintained, polished and played by a dedicated community which has made it stand the test of time. Development of the client and server software is going on still today, with ezQuake 3.0 being released just a couple of weeks ago with numerous improvements featuring also changes made in collaboration with the Quakecon tournament organizers. The latter changes made in order to fulfill ruleset requirements in time for the Quakecon 2on2 anniversary tournament in August this year.

It is suggested that you celebrate this special day by simply enjoying some free for all action or similar, playing the game, which can be downloaded from in a neat installer.

Tim Willits Grilled by The Metro (210 comments)
Posted by ini @ 01:21 CDT, 22 June 2016 - iMsg
Nine days ago Tim Willits walked out onto the Bethesda E3 show stage to formerly announce Quake Champions. However, details were light and questions remained unanswered.

Enter free British tabloid newspaper the Metro's GameCentral. In this interview Tim Willits is caught off guard when the interviewer begins with a complaint and starts to spills the beans on the beginnings of project "Lovecraft" and the design of Quake Champions.

Read the interview here for more hard hitting questions such as:

GC: You’re bringing back such memories for me now. I knew this guy that always got his girlfriend to time when they respawned. And they all used to… I can’t remember exactly what they were doing but they turned all the textures off or something, to make sure it was always 60fps?

TW: [laughs] It was called flat-shaded. It normalised the textures to a single colour.

We all know, that Quakelive had the potential to be so much more. It pains me to see this game being where it's at.

I was gone for many years, and the game slowly died more and more as I was gone. You might think that this is bullshit, but look at the activity graphs. Ever since I came back to quake in late march, the activity is slowly going back up again. I am not saying I am the face of Quakelive. I believe I am here for a purpose, to save quake.

I know how to draw attention, I will draw the attention of the whole gaming industry towards quake, I just need more time. ESL, Dreamhack, ESWC, IEM to name a few previous hosters of quake. They will all take quake back once i'm done with my mission, #MakeQuakeGreatAgain

......To end this I have an announcement, I will be hosting a 100 euro tournament winner takes it all once per month. The only catch is: Non of the top players are able to participate, which of the top players I am discluding I will reveal later. This is to make things more exciting, it is unfortunately something the scene needs. Because all of the high tier (rank 20-80) players can actually beat each other on any given day. How many can beat evil or agent in a bo5?

More info on this coming soon.

Are corporations getting more corrupt? (29 comments)
Posted by yoyoman @ 07:55 CDT, 21 June 2016 - iMsg
Are corporations getting more corrupt or is it just reddit making me cynical? It seems every time we take 1 step forwards we take 2 steps backwards in the 20th century. Corporations just have too much money and power in their hands that every time we fix a loophole/law they find a new one to break. I'm starting to believe that corporations are keeping us happy just enough so that we don't start a revolution, not intentionally like some stupid illuminati conspiracy but because people are lazy and eventually we will reach a point where corporations have successfully buttfucked us from every angle just enough.

Are things really getting worse or are they slowly getting better?

QC promotion (26 comments)
Posted by chubz @ 05:18 CDT, 21 June 2016 - iMsg
How would you go about promoting Quake Champions?

I've noticed that OW had weekly cups hosted by Gosu Gamers even during the closed beta which were streamed and casted. It had also around 5-8 relatively stable teams that were fighting for it.

In contrast even though D16 had not been developed with MP in mind it was pushed with MP heavy line as "open" beta and was announced as having 3 MP DLC's. Since then was not picked up anywhere (really not an issue anyways)

OW gained the hype with two lanes of promotion:
1. Standard/Creative - covering lore, videos, comics, in game details, press releases and official information being readily available
2. Competitive - having competitions ran way before even coming to open beta which were covered by news portals and official channels as well as community covered (not just by the host community)

Coming back to Quake could something similar be done? Maybe it would be possible to go for creative with something in line of getting out a montage of best frag moments across all quakes? Since lore is sparse it could be covered by reinventing the characters and re imagining the arena lore? Could active players from past quake games and communities be bothered running weekly cups maybe casting pickup games way before the release and do you think it would produce better game promotion?

Quake Champions bots (27 comments)
Posted by certes @ 01:10 CDT, 21 June 2016 - iMsg
I think many of us sometimes warm up offline with bots on whichever mode we choose like nightmare but I have an idea (which may be carp but I like it!)

I think someone mentioned there is a talented coder doing the bots on Doom so not sure if this is possible but...

Basically there have been many great players over the years in Quake, I would love to see these names we all remember having classic matches online and at major tournaments.

I think it would be a nice gesture to the community and these players to add bots to Quake Champions so we can play offline against these players. This would only work if they can analyse the demos of players such as Rapha, toxjq, evil, cypher, k1llsen, fazz, cooller, dahang, spart1e, l1nkin, stermy, Id_, zero4, agent, etc and make the bot play with their characteristics of each player like good timing or good aim or good movement etc

Who are your top 10 Quake players? And what are there characteristics as a Quake Player.

I know they are saying that during development they want to involve the top players in developing Quake Champions and I think this is a good way to repay them back plus it means practising duel offline would be fun albeit scary :))

If anyone from id Software read this... (53 comments)
Posted by He4rTL3sS @ 12:27 CDT, 20 June 2016 - iMsg
PLEASE, oh, PLEASE, do A LOT of optimizations to the engine that will be used for QUAKE Champions.

What I mean by optimizations is like making it so that it can run on decent hardware at 150fps stable at low settings.
What I mean by decent hardware is like Intel Core i3 processor + decent graphic card (like a GTX 960, or in the future, probably GTX 1060).

The game has to run smoother than DOOM, I hope that you won't need GTX 1080 and Core i7 to run at 150-200fps.

The game must run on almost any kind of hardwares at decent conditions. People with low-end PC (intel pentium/celeron/amd FX/A10 etc... and mid-end graphic cards like Radeon R7 or GTX 940/950) should be able to run the game at ~100fps at lowest settings.

If the only way to get 150+fps is to have an i7 + GTX 1070/1080, the game will not be a success, you can be sure of that. We don't want QUAKE to end up like Crysis.

And considering the fact that id Software wants to push the game as an e-sport, if you want that to succeed, it's primordial that the game can run on a broad range of hardwares.

Take a look at the most successful e-sport games:
#1 League of Legends, can run smoothly even on low-end PC
#2 Dota 2, pretty much the same as LoL
#3 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, runs at 300 fps on recent hardwares, not even high-end. Can run at 100-150fps on 5-6 years old hardwares
#4 Starcraft 2, pretty much the same as LoL and Dota 2
#5 Call of Duty (mainly played competitively on consoles, and you need like what ? 400$ to get a PS4/XboxOne + the game and you're ready to go)
#6 Team Fortress 2 (Cartoon GFX, and just like CS:GO can run smoothly at 300fps on decent hardware.)
#7 Overwatch, runs at 150-200+fps on decent hardware (not high-end) on lowest settings

Not (yet) successful but worth mentionning:
Reflex. In my humble opinion this game is the perfect example of what I would call "perfectly optimized". The engine is quite recent, the game looks great and it still runs at 350+fps on decent hardware, which is just amazing.

Not everyone has the money to upgrade his PC, and even less people have enough money to get a 1500+$ PC, you have to take that into consideration.

I truly hope that it will be possible to tweak the GFX of QUAKE Champions to something like QL, maybe not as much tweaking as QL, but you got it, give us the possibility to run the game at 150fps on lowest settings :)

And last but not least, keep in mind that most of the hardcore quake players already have a 144hz 1080p monitor, which means that if you can't get at least 144/150fps, the game won't be smooth/fluid enough, and will basically make them play worst :), especially when you're used to 250fps (Quake Live) or 150fps (Overwatch).

That's all I had to say. Thank you if you read it all :-)

Some regular duels? (31 comments)
Posted by sTPHN @ 05:38 CDT, 19 June 2016 - iMsg
We all know with the advent of Overwatch coming up, a lot of people are making the switch due to various reasons.

However, finding a high level duel becomes rather difficult when you need to idle on a server for 45 mins before someone connects to only be welcomed by a new player who only knows walk. (Nothing wrong with that.)

Are their any of you guys who want to have some regular duels or at least see if we can get a little group together of people who are down to play? I'm hoping with the new Quake the duel community will come back again into full force.

If anyone is keen, drop me a message with your steam ID and I'll add you.

Overwatch soldier76 only with music = fun.

Hi to all,

I'm new to video/pictures editing and don't want to go through 200softwares to find the best ones. So to make this as painfull as possible, here is what I need.

Best software to use for:
Q) Quake editing
- demos - making movies - effects - camera control - custom music - adding text

Y) Youtube video editing (filming my own videos with camera-smartphone or something else)
- making movies/clips - effects - custom music - adding text

I ) Short Instagram videos/Photos (they are long enough for 1minute now, enough for short videos)
- making clips - effects - custom music - adding text

Is there a complete software to do this all in one, or do you recommend different solutions for different stuff ?

Please If you can give me structured answers like:
Demos -
Video -
Effects -
Camera -
Text -
Video -
Effects -
Pictures / Text -

Thank you all :)

System requirements has not been officially announced. I am very curious what is recommended for BF1 though. Anyone think they got a somewhat accurate call on what it would be?

Translation on servers with minqlx (12 comments)
Posted by iouonegirl @ 13:13 CDT, 17 June 2016 - iMsg
Hello fellow Quakers!

I would like to introduce to you my translate plugin.

What can it do?
- The plugin keeps a buffer of chat messages per player.
- The last N items a player has said can be translated into the language you want.
- Translate words or sentences in real time to converse with anyone on the server, no matter what language they do (or do not) speak.

Example usage:

Installation instructions (for server owners):
1. Make sure you have the latest QLDS and minqlx
2. Register for a Yandex account and request a free API key. This account can also be used to check the amount of translations are happening on your server.
3. Add the API key as a cvar in the server.cfg: set qlx_translate_api_key "OpieOP"
4. Add the translate plugin to the qlx plugin startup line
5. Load plugin (or restart server) and good to go!

- An impressive number of 73 languages are supported by the Yandex translation API. For the languages and directions, I can link you here.
- This plugin cannot only improve communication among players themselves, but also provide a way for casters/spectators/enemies/teammates to follow up on the actions and conversations of other lingual players.

Example scenario:
ZLive is casting a 125fps sunday cup, and suddenly a Russian player stopped moving his mouse and is typing some things in chat. Instead of resorting to ask the chat if anyone know what is going on, they could find out with one simple command.

Small end note:
The translations are done via the Yandex translation API, since the Google Translate is not free.
All requests can only be done as good as the service is. Dialects and/or typos could cause the output to be the same as the input (i.e. unrecognized) or to not make much sense.

Hope you like this, install it and I would be delighted to see it in action on Sunday or just in general.

another Brool story (11 comments)
Posted by stpbozin @ 00:43 CDT, 17 June 2016 - iMsg
Well this is a double story and its about stupid people as always.
In a first part of this double story i have to start from the moment when i was invited play to the team called easy. There was some guys and they are not so importat coz we gonna talk about deisma. Ohh this guy…
Whole team was on the server talking about strats and shit. About how is better to act in some game situation, just experience sharing. And everything was ok but this daisma guy start raging for no reason. He start talking shit like “why the fuck you telling me about all this shit, i've been playing this map more than you was playing quake over all”. We had tried to calm him. but he start raging even more and then quit our team. So this makes us disband...
yeah, he quit from team but he still was in my friend list. I think he was impressend by my aim because he was asking a lot about my config and stuff. We spend some time talking about this when we was a team. But he start asking about same shit even after he quit team. And its became so annoying. But we all know i am fucking nice guy and i was doing my best answering his questions. Yeah, until he ask me why i do not playing with vertical synchronization. This shit realy makes me angry, I just cant handle such stupid questions. So yea i start calling him as a retard and stuff like that. And he is like: “omg you are so bad person you cant talk normaly with people wtf wrong with you”... No, no. its not like he ask a question and i got mad instantly. No. I actualy explain him why vsync is bad. But he keep telling me some stupid shit like: “you have to give it a try maybe its good to play on 60hz vsync, mouse will move so smooth and its can be good for aiming“. so somewhere here i got mad. Said to him to fuck off and get away from my friend list.
Second part i have to start from the moment when i was invited to play in team planB. But this request comes to me in same time as team easy invited me. So as a fucking nice guy i obviously refuse to join to their team. Well maybe i pick a wrong arument to not join new team. I said something like “i wont join your team coz you are weak players”. Yeah, but i said that to be sure they wont beg me to join again and again. But this pecka guy nursed a grudge on me for long time… I remember we was playing a prac on purgatory, and 3 guys from planB was trying to come to the red armor room having rokets plazma and other shit. And i am just burn em all with only 70 lg ammo, it was so funny and it was like an answer why i didnt join their team - coz even 3 of you cant pass though me. They start asking for my demos like i am aimboting or somethink. But obviously i didnt give them anything. And i think this makes peka even more mad at me. But its an spin off.
Main story line comes to the moment when i come to the rupickup to chek if anyone playing. Many time gone from the moment when i refused to play in planB, but... I found that pickup just started and someone was need a sub. And i decide to sub. But at this moment members of planB clan had admins privileges. So i was instantly banned for no reason just because they can (obviously old resentment). And i even got some insults in pm from one of planB guy. Thats makes me sure this is an old resentment and not something else.
Yeah, not a big drama, But anyway its funny how resentful people can be.

Quake Champs Tim Willits interview (new) (282 comments)
Posted by p0ffer @ 11:03 CDT, 16 June 2016 - iMsg
New interview with Tim Willits:

Quite of useful new information from this one, like:

a)All classic quake modes including 1vs1
b)Picking up all weapons
c)Timing all items
d)Maybe more focused on Team vs Team for e-sports
e)No way its gonna get released for consoles - maximum performance and capabilities
f)Taking opinions from veteran/pro quake players, some testing it themselves (quake lab)
g)120hz unlocked fps- strafe/rocket jumping and air control (already known)
h)Classic arena style quake game with the addition of champions

what's the deal with cypher? (77 comments)
Posted by Skinny_Puppy @ 09:01 CDT, 16 June 2016 - iMsg
Is he going to Quakecon or what? I heard some rumours that he decided not to go.

He's been playing alot of Overwatch the past 6 months, and barely any Quake.

So what's the deal? I saw him play a few QL games vs cooller and he got trashed.

Has he quit Quake?

free : check if your ram is stable using

free : check if your cpu is stable using with threads on auto, if your cpu has`nt enough volts, your PC will freeze shortly after you start encoding

or use aida64 for cache and memory stability test, it will freeze the same as mp4 encoder then it reaches the L caches

multipov demo playback and followkiller? (3 comments)
Posted by xou @ 04:54 CDT, 16 June 2016 - iMsg
I've been uploading some CPMA multipov demos on The renderer just picks a POV and sticks to it.

Is there anyway to activate followkiller on a demo playback ?

Mechanical milestone progression system (6 comments)
Posted by zlr @ 17:58 CDT, 15 June 2016 - iMsg
IGN said Tim Willits told them QC is using 'mechanical milestones' for progression, how do you guys interpret that? It's an open ended term, I can think of a few things but I'm interested in hearing some ideas.

Will it be something like what was attempted with QL with the initial matchmaking courses, where the further you got through various strafe jumping and rocket jumping tests determined your initial tier? Or is it more of an achievement thing, like killing 20 people in FFA gets you an achievement for it, etc.

Look closely and pay attention. I'll make a video and point out all the situations and explain, where it is very obvious around 10-12 times. I have honestly never been more convinced, can't belive this Drejk.
I advice people to download this VOD incase he tries to get rid of this somehow.

Remember when I said that if I ever started playing quake again I would help bust other cheaters? This is me giving back to the community. Stay tuned.

Skill-based matchmaking Needed (9 comments)
Posted by ttuvapor @ 07:50 CDT, 15 June 2016 - iMsg
Out of the gate come launch day, Quake Champions needs skill-based matchmaking. It needs to be fluid and easy to understand for new players. Take a look at Starcraft 2, you connect online, click ranked game, and you're immediately taken into placement matches before you're put into a division.

This has to be done or this game is dead before it starts.

lookin for rapha demos from the whole duel event.
So far i found the ones on (only the finals) and apparently all the demos at some point were on this website: which now is something different.
Anybody has them, knows where to find em, knows if it's possible to find em?

Is Quake Champions the new CS:GO? (11 comments)
Posted by inspectre @ 01:34 CDT, 15 June 2016 - iMsg
Coming from a CS 1.6 background, I have this eerie feeling that Quake Champions will become a widely popular game, but one that I just can't get behind.

For some quick background, I never moved to CS:S, hoped for the best in CSPromod fantasyland, then tried CS:GO with the best of intentions and simply couldn't find the passion for it. Basically, it wasn't CS to me.

So...I moved to quake as my main game :)

I wonder if there are some parallels now:
1. Q3/QL = CS 1.6
2. Quake 4 = CS:S
3. Reflex = CSP fantasyland
4. QC = CS:GO

Any thoughts?

So I lived and worked in China for the last three and a half years and I am currently packing my bags as I will return home to Germany tomorrow. I will need to find a new job, new apartment and build up a nest for my family (wife, two year old boy and who knows what happens to the bloody Chinese parents in law...) who will join me later at around half a year. It feels strange to leave this place which has become a second home for me.

So why write about this on ESR?! This page has been part of my (almost) daily routine for 15 years. From a gaming point of view I have been most of the time inactive. I played Q3 from 1999 to 2003. Switched to QW and played from 2003 till 2008 (but did not put as much hours into it as Q3) and had a short period with QL (few months during open/closed beta). I sometimes followed a tournament when I was in the mood, but mostly I prefer to play myself then watch other people play.

Since 2009 I started to get serious into single player gaming again and said goodbye to arena shooters. Many genres saw a comeback through kickstarter or through indie-gaming. Not so good old arena shooters. When I heard Epic is doing a new UT, I felt relieved, even so I never actually played any UT game (movement sucks…). Overwatch, Battleborn, Lawbreakers and other hero shooters are gaining huge playerbases. These games are not classic arena shooters, but in my opinion a big step up over COD and other mp FPS.

From tomorrow evening I will be back in Germany with a lightning fast internet connection again which is not hindered by the great firewall. But until yesterday I actually did not know on what to look forward to for multiplayer gaming. Sure Quake Champions might suck in the end, but it gives me some hope regarding my favorite genre: Arena shooters.

Exciting times ahead, from a personal and gaming perspective. I like.

Quake 5 will be called QUAKE Champions.

What about you ? What do you think ? Are you happy/sad ? Do you think that id will fail once more like they did with q4 ? New DOOM's success has given you hope ? AWESOME, CAN'T WAIT ?! SHIT, QUAKE3/LIVE FOR EVER ?! Quake reborn ? Quake is dead ?

There needs to be one main mode (95 comments)
Posted by sulit @ 07:31 CDT, 13 June 2016 - iMsg
There has to be one main mode that is officially the "competitive mode" whether it's Ctf tdm or w.e.

All the other game modes have to be labeled as fun side modes. Ql is way too scattered with diversed gametypes. Champions needs to stay away from dividing the community.
