Cooller stream question (9 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 14:16 GMT, 4 November 2015 - iMsg
Its a great pleasure to see Cooller announcing a "road to get my shape back" (alike the K1llsen revival ! strenx if you see this, go go go !), even participating in last sunday cup.

but I don't understand. I was checking his "previous diffusions" on his stream and the last one is "preparing for 2morrows 1v1 cup" on the 31 october. Which cup was he talking about ?

because the only 1v1 cup that I know of these last few days was the 125fps october season finals day, and it was on the previous day (friday 30th) + he wasn't even participating so... was he mistaken and thought there was a sunday cup, hence writing "preparing for tomorrow" ?

quakecon duel format (10 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 15:24 BST, 5 August 2015 - iMsg
I'm pretty disappointed we saw only 1 Cooller duel. Next quakecon really needs at least 2 streams and a decent duel format.

For the group stages and with a team of 2 casters I'd rather have 2 streams with one caster than a single stream with 2 casters.

And a traditionnal format with quarters - semis - grand final is much more entertaining and full of suspens. Although it doesn't properly decides the "best of the best" (for that it should be the "rapha format" he's been proposing often) it is by far the most entertaining tournament format. Play-offs with spectators cheering, suspens. An easy read on how the tournament is going.

rapha is not a defensive player (112 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 13:16 BST, 29 July 2015 - iMsg
He's a positionnal player, but by no means a defensive or +back player (Cypher even said it on his interview). He launches deadly attacks more often than you think (and keeps pushing to ensure the kill) and always goes for punishing damage. We saw it this quakecon. You can't win vs top players be being "just +back".

You just rage because he knows how to be patient and +back when he needs to, because yes, when you have a 200 200 evil hunting for you, you need to +back for 5 mins if needed, this is not lolCA. His capacity to know when to be agressive is probably the best in the world.

250 fps config question (24 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 15:39 BST, 16 July 2015 - iMsg
hey everyone,

after a cvar restart I'm having some troubles getting to a stable 250fps config (actually I'm even stuck at 125fps for no reason).

I'm in picmip 7 with almost everything as low as possible, vertical sync is off, and still 125 fps, no more. I had to cvar_restart after quake live decided to make a random error at every launch (the day before it worked perfectly well at 250 fps and I didn't change a thing...).

Could you guys give me a few tips to get easily to 250 fps (with picmip 7) starting from a cvar_restart (basic default config) plz ?

Why is LAN more important than online ? (44 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 15:13 BST, 9 July 2015 - iMsg
hey hey

do you think LAN tournaments results are really more important than online results ?

I always hear that and tend to think that myself but honestly : why is it so different and so much more prestigious ?

concerning Quake Live and no other iterations of Quake, why are strenx and evil (online heroes) not considered overall, throughout the history of the game, at the same level than the top lan players ?
(Cypher and rapha dominating something like 80% of lans in QL history).

If Cypher wins this QuakeCon after loosing all year long vs evil, will you think he's better than evil, and if yes, why ?

Stop being obsessed with bloodrun plz (111 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 16:37 BST, 26 May 2015 - iMsg
Hello, could you ztn / aero obsessed people please learn new maps plz ?

I'm fed up of people coming to my server, calling vote ztn, then aero (and then often campgrounds, which hasn't been played competitively for years but whatever) and just leaving when I vote "no" to both. There are other (and better) maps than massively over played, 20 years old, boring maps.

I like playing ztn and aero once in a while but not as much as other new, less known maps; be assured that there is great pleasure in learning and mastering new maps...

QCON No Evil ? (85 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 13:18 BST, 19 May 2015 - iMsg
Hasn't he found a team yet ?

I'm usually a cooller / rapha / cypher fan but i'm disapointed evil isn't attending.

The 1v1 tourney looses its "who's the best in the world ?" property if one of the 5 (3 ?) top contestants is not playing :/

and he has a unique style. Even if its almost only online, he's one of the big names now and its always a shame when a big name doesn't attend (I have the same feeling about k1llsen)

Craters not giving -1 (8 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 14:13 GMT, 10 December 2014 - iMsg
Cratering does not give -1 anymore. This is just total shit, is this supposed to be normal ?

If this is a change made consciously by the devs I say : NOT GG GUYS.

In duel a the very least it MUST be returned.

DHW 2013 : strenx, Av3k, tox, DaHanG ! (25 comments)
Posted by Grota @ 11:42 GMT, 4 November 2013 - iMsg
I just read that are favourite aim beasts strenx, av3k and tox are confirmed for dreamhack winter, along with Dahang !

I am thrilled to see strenx and all these players who said they stopped or weren't that much into competition anymore. Really this is great news and we couldn't dream of a better dreamhack.

Quake is maybe not that popular anymore but great things are still happening for the fan community !

This is going be the most epic tournament ever.
