#tdmpickup is an IRC channel where a bot automatically organizes matches and decides teams. Players simply need to join the channel, type the !a command, and they will be queued for the next match. As soon as 8 players have queued, the bot decides the teams, the match starts, and the queue is reset for the next 8 players.
You don't need to install an IRC software client if you don't want to. Thanks to IRC Webchat which opens IRC directly in a browser tab, #tdmpickup is quite literally two clicks away:
Please remember to use an IRC nick similar to your in-game nick to avoid confusion.
If it's your first time playing in #tdmpickup, you will need to tell the bot what your Steam ID is so it can track your match history properly. Make sure you are using the desired IRC nick and then type the following command:
Your Steam ID is the ~17 digit folder that can be found in C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Quake Live/ by default, and looks something like 76543210987654321. You can also use http://steamidfinder.com/.
The obvious reason for hosting Clan Arena pickups in #tdmpickup is that one bot in one channel is a lot easier to maintain and administrate than two bots in two channels, but in addition to this we think that this is a great opportunity for both TDM pickups and CA pickups to gain new players. If a TDM pickup needs 2 more players to add, then a couple of CA players might decide to try it out, and vice versa.
Remember that most commands are for TDM by default, so you will need to add the "ca" suffix where necessary (!a ca, !rating ca player, !w ca, etc...).
Of course, if this initiative fails horribly and nobody plays CA, it will eventually be removed from #tdmpickup. As with everything in QL, we depend entirely on the community (that's you!).
For now, two brand new CA servers located in Germany have been configured, so feel free to check your ping:
/connect 220.127.116.11:27960; password capickup
/connect 18.104.22.168:27961; password capickup
The mappool should be identical to the previous #capickup mappool:
* Also in the 4v4 TDM map pool.
#tdmpickup is an IRC channel where a bot automatically organizes TDM matches.
Players simply need to join the channel, type !a, and they will be queued for the next TDM match. As soon as 8 players have queued, the bot automatically assigns those players to a match, sorts them into balanced teams, tells them which server to join, and resets the queue to 0 until 8 more players type !a, and then another match starts, etc... Sounds easy right? Yeah, it is!
In addition to handling the queue and setting up matches, the bot also keeps track of each player's individual performance through their QLStats profile. This allows the bot to create roughly balanced teams, and it works surprisingly well, with very close matches happening frequently.
Of course, there is a bit more to #tdmpickup than just typing !a. There are advanced bot commands, the intricacies of the rating system, the ever-debatable map pool, the respect and etiquette, the friendships and rivalries, the post-match blaming, the draft cups, the eternal 7/8s, the shamanic moments, the overtimes, the mercylimits, the tears, blood, sweat and lulz... and most importantly, the guidelines to keep things running smoothly. They are built on foundations of common sense, so you will hopefully only need to read them once.
To summarize, #tdmpickup is fun as fuck.
No problem! You don't need to install an IRC client on your PC. Thanks to the miracle that is IRC Webchat, you can open IRC directly in your browser. #tdmpickup is quite literally two clicks away:

This is something that is definitely being considered for implementation at some point in the future.
Wrong! The average elo rating for any given match these days is around ~1400.
Players of all skill ranges and backgrounds play in #tdmpickup, from the likes of noctis, fearzzz and winz, right down to people who can barely strafe and shoot at the same time, like ins. Actually, noctis hasn't played in
monthsyears. Yes, you may die a lot. Yes, you may cause your team to lose. Yes, you might not actually enjoy your first game that much... but trust me, you are more than welcome no matter how bad you think you are.
The best part of #tdmpickup, as with Quake itself, is the satisfaction of gradual self-improvement. With a different ping to get used to, new maps to learn, and all the different variables to consider over 20 minutes of non-stop action, it can be a little overwhelming at first, but give it time, and you will come to love it.
The *only* requirements that #tdmpickup asks of you, regardless of how bad you think you are, is that you A) use common sense, B) bind and use dropweapon, and C) know most of the maps before typing !a:
Also occasionally included in rotation:
Don't worry :) Lam and Whodares stepped down as admins and left the channel years ago, and the toxic elitism that plagued the channel in the early days has practically evaporated. It is a very relaxed and noob-friendly atmosphere these days, and while you still get the very occasional idiot (it is the internet after all), trust me, things are a lot nicer now.
That's understandable, ping after all is the highest priority for most of us, but if this is the main reason that is putting you off, please take a moment to check your ping on one of the new #tdmpickup servers, as your ping might have improved since the last time you checked:
/connect 22.214.171.124:27965; password tdm
/connect 126.96.36.199:27970; password tdm
Even if you have higher ping there than on your favourite CA server, please play a few games to get used to it and see how it goes. The sacrifice is worth it.
Get well soon.

[...] Unfortunately, the budget could not be realized, and we've had to close down work on Season 2 indefinitely. We're still very proud to have Season 1 complete, and hope the fans look at our project as complete over time. Thanks to everyone, we're still around. We'll still be making some shorts for the channel, but don't look forward to Season 2.
