QuakeCon 2011 After Action Blog (48 comments)
Posted by GreasedScotsman @ 16:03 CDT, 19 August 2011 - iMsg
Hey folks. United States of America GreasedScotsman here. After the successful planning, management and production of QuakeCon 2011 coverage, I've decided to take a break from broadcasting for the next month or so, perhaps longer, though I may reappear for special events like 2GD's World Tour (described during OneMoreGame/LiveOnThree 08-03-11).

QuakeCon 2011 was an amazing adventure. Thirteen people were responsible for the production and coverage. After last year's clusterfuck where we stepped up to the plate after expecting to play a secondary role to LiveOnThree, lacking equipment and time to plan anything, we knew we had much to prove.

We made a conscious decision to not hype up what we had planned and we chose to not go as "QLTV" but as the "QuakeCon Coverage crew." In hindsight, I know a lot of people literally missed the live stream because of this lack of press. Thankfully, though, we have 720p VODs available on YouTube of all of our content.

QuakeCon 2010 After Action Blog-Complete (57 comments)

I just returned from QuakeCon 2010, bleary-eyed, exhausted, and happier than I could have imagined. Thirteen QLTV staffers descended on the event just a week ago to begin on-site preparations and setup. Throughout the week, several of them, myself included, wouldn't even get a chance to attend John Carmack's keynote, would miss the many panel presentations and wouldn't even see what vendors were strewn about the same exhibit hall in which we were about to spend the next 4 days because we all would be too busy.

In short, covering QuakeCon 2010 has been a relentless endeavor from start to finish. This literary after action report will detail my experiences as Lead Shoutcaster and unofficial manager of Quake Live TV. QuakeCon is an event built by and for the community, and I feel the community should know and understand how and why things happened the way they did this year.
