Posted by Zhu- @ 01:43 CDT, 7 April 2014 - iMsg
Hi I'm just gonna put it short: The company I worked for had to fire alot of people. Unfortunately I was one of those who had to go, so I am looking for a job preferably within Sweden. But I could also work out of country as well.

I'm not going to post my resume. but if anyone anywhere here maybe has a job for me or if you have information about anything. Please add me on skype my user is: Staminatank or Pontus Åberg. And we can talk there. I very much appreciate any effort that could eventually or directly lead to a job.

Troll posts will be ignored.

After some family research, it appears that my fathers family was originally from germany (german speaking part) and immigrated to sweden in the 1700.

What if my family was semi-close related to hitlers family without me knowing it!

His speeches actually inspires me to do more vlogs again.

Zhu's philosophy improve your duel (49 comments)
Posted by Zhu- @ 13:27 CST, 21 February 2014 - iMsg
Haters gonna hate, I do this for people who want to learn the game I love.

Im writing all this tips assuming you have played quake a few times or more.


Config
So you know the very basics of quake by now, the very first thing you want to set up is a config you feel comfortable with. Alot of new players does the mistake by copying a good players config, thinking that it will make them better. But it's not the config that makes them good, it's simply their skill. You want to make a config that suits you best for the moment.

There is one exception though, i'd strongly recommend that you always start with binds to every single weapon. Because if you start off with scrolling through the weapons, I think most of you will regret that you got used to that instead of having binded weapons individually. It's more useful and thats the only thing i'd say you should go for in your config, the rest is up to you.

Learning duel
What a lot of lazy players do when they start playing duel is that they get destroyed by everyone, they give up and go play CA. They often tend to use the argument: "i'm gonna learn aiming and movement in CA first". While that may be partly true, learning aiming and movement in duel while playing it alot better for you. It's alot harder to aim in duel because the opponent is focused on you only and will try to dodge your shots at all times. In CA it's not the same case cause its so many on the screen. So i'd say just be stubborn and stick with duelling if you wanna become good at it. Dont cop out and play other modes in order to improve your duelling.

The first aspect you really need to focus on in duel when you're new is timing i'd say. Try timing items you take like normal math. Just long enough so you kinda do it on your own without thinking too much. Once you've improved ALOT you can kinda time on feeling alot. But starting to really focus on this at the start really gives you a solid foundation. Because at lower level duelling, if you can outplay your opponent in item control you're pretty much going to beat everyone. Things like aim and movement, all that will come along the way the more you play.

I'm going to use ratings as a way for telling diffrent skill levels, although ELO ratings isn't completely accurate to a players skill, I just feel that this way is the most convienient to relate to. If you're new to quake and don't know anything about the duel rating system please check out: qlranks

Reaching 1600 ELO rating
So lets say you're at 1100-1300 elo and you struggle to get up. What you need to do is 1st: Try to get at the same level off all the maps (officially played maps). Cause almost all maps requires you to play a certain style. If you get your skill to around the same on all levels. You will have a very bright future, because it will make you into a small master off all styles. That is pretty much the best foundation you can have starting off. So focus on all the maps, and if you feel like you're worse on some maps than others: Get better at them. I know it may seem like alot of work but trust me. It will be worth it in the end. Watch alot and alot of demos of really good players, take notes of what they're doing. And im not talking about how they move or aim, you should look for the little things they do like small baits and tricks.

However when you've done this part, the rest will come in short future and you will reach 1600 ELO pretty easily. The only thing you need to have besides knowing this is your commitment.

Going to 1900 ELO rating
If you got to 1600 rating pretty fast doing this, breaking into the 1900 rating won't be a problem for you either. It's just a higher level of play here, less random stuff works. People punish you harder for your mistakes, they time items better and so on. You can't rely on much easy stuff anymore. I'd say to advance even further in duel from your skill level here. Is to not try so hard when you play public duel matches (normal games). Rather than playing your best and trying to win, you should try out new things all the time. Alot of people dont do this enough and I seriously think that even really high level players doesn't do this. Quake is such a big and deep game, there is so many new situations we still see 14 years later. There is so many players that don't get any better, just because they have in their mindset that they should do this kinda thing (metagame). Go out their in the quakelive world and try out new things constantly. You will learn alot and see the game diffrently. I don't think playing to win in normal games is a optimal way to improve your skills. You shouldn't care about winning or losing. From a perspective where you want to improve you only win when you learn new things.

Going even further...
This is when quake becomes super hard, at this level you pretty much need to know what to do. To overcome really good players, you need to throw something random at them sometimes. Be a bit random with a backup plan, this is stuff you should have learned from back when i said: "dont try so hard to win, try out new things in normal games". There are around 70 players with 2100 elo, I was one of them streaming on zyzz_brah. Going further is really hard and at this point you realise that quake is one of the hardest game you could play. But i'd say from this on you earn nothing at all playing people worse than you. You should play people better than you at all times, really at all times. And always asks for advices when you play them, and always take their advices seriously. Eventually you should catch up to their skill, and if you're talented too you might go as far to the 2200. From there on out you're on your own basically, theres not many in that rating so if you one day get there. Be damn proud of yourself.



If you're a new player or anyone else and you felt like this helped you in anyway. Im glad that I did something for you. Im just sharing some ideas, I could go on for longer, but now im gonna go out and dance and parteyy..

The poll about me playing in the dreamhack tournament:
http://esreality.com/post/2489724/zhu-dreamhack/
Yes: 52% (115)
No: 48% (107)

ZeroQL would have got 1-5 yes%, and he got unbanned quick anyway, look at what ur doing sync.
And I love hove some people that defend ZeroQL tries to argue that I shouldn't get unbanned. Its fucking laughable im actually laughing atm. There are like 50 of these hypocrites on esr.. [EHEM COUGH...Teen Queen.EHM-COUGH......] If Syncerror decided to ban ZeroQL again I wouldn't be here. I WOULD SHUT up and go away.


I made this post in response to the Swedish QL Tournament News:
http://esreality.com/post/2542748/quakesm-res...pid2544083

" It seriously make me fucking sad to the bone when I see a beautiful concept and idea like this get so unhyped.
I dont wanna be that guy, but lets be honest if I had been in this tournament it would have been 33x the hype.

But humble Syncerror dont wanna let the community grow and have more hype, nope. just gonna keep zhu banned for 3 more fucking years even though im top 3 in sweden and top 33 in EU. Also im one of the most colourful players that creates alot of contreversy,
U DONT REALISE i would fucking make the livestreams go up to like 33k viewers and get this game the attention it needs. Ur blowing this opportunity Sync.. I hope you dont regret it.

I realise how to make this game bigger than you do no fucking offence, and not at all in anything but legit terms.
If you think im bullshitting you could try release me for a while, and then look on your statistics after a month, probably will have an increase of the average signed up players per month to this game by 33%. Do you even realise how much 33% is? Have you even seen numbers like that besides on your rail accuracy?

We all want the same thing in the end right? Sync; you want your company to grow so that you can earn more money and live a more happy life. I want to play this game so that I can do a thing I enjoy, I will enjoy quake even more if it would be bigger. So I would make my most effort to ensure that it would grow. We're all on the same fucking team brah.

inb4 sync response: "Nope i dont regret it" (inb4 93% plused).

sorry for cursing so fucking much
"
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I DIDNT want to go this way but i feel like its my only option now. I've been banned for 3 years soon and it's time to drop the hammer.

Im going to give you a choice; (answer within a week or i'll take it as a no): either you unban me and let me play as Zhu and everything will be fine. OR i will be for real with this: I will play this game forever with fakenicks. Yeah you can ban my new accounts sure, but i'll just keep making them. In a force you've never seen, and in that way I will always be able to play this game, just not as i'd like cause i hate fakenicking but I will. I will try to stream my games so that people can follow Zhu on my new accounts everyday. So its like im unbanned anyway, i'll get banned everyday but i'll make new ones, i got unlimited VPNs. This is all as a protest.

I know you're so afraid to take my side, I don't see you doing it.
But....
You can take the easy or the hard way.


I know there are gonna be alot of smartass zhu hate comments now. But im not here to read your shit about me. Im just here for one reason.

Posted by Zhu- @ 07:12 CST, 1 January 2014 - iMsg
I got banned from this game on 31 july 2011, I was banned from this game by getting caught using wallhack in a couple of tournaments, one of these was a TDM-tournament with prize money involved. And that was actually my motivation for using cheat at that time. To win the money, cause I really needed them.Thats the real truth. I played with aCtion in that tourney, and we beat 4Kings in the finals. Even though I was so desperate for money at the time, theres no excuse.

This doesn't really matter as well but im just gonna say it anyway; I got no money at all. Because I got banned before the money was even sent out. To be honest, the most shame I have over cheating was that I actually did this to team aCtion, i hurt their name and reputation in a really bad way. They are such awesome guys and they were the last one deserving what I did, I felt really bad about that and I still do.

This tournament was in June 2011, after we won this tournament, I stopped cheating completely. Because I was still good without cheats anyway and i didnt need it, i just wanted to guaruantee myself winning the money at the time. So I stopped cheating after that tournament, then about 40 days later CSI:QL (Draven and others) put up the "evidence" video against me. I realised they knew what was going on and I just decided to confess everything and confirm that it was indeed true. Alot of people were shocked of this, especially QL friends of mine who has played quake with me for about 8-10 years. They couldn't believe this. A really good IRL-friend of mine actually didn't want be my friend anymore. I introduced quake to this guy and helped him get good, he always looked up to me as the big daddy in quake. We had travelled to alot of Dreamhacks playing quake, starcraft. It was a very big deal to him, he still to this day doesn't want to talk with me.

I got pretty depressed over it, and realised how much I had fucked up. This game had always had a really big part of me, and I somehow seem to forgot how really important it was for me, just for some money. No one believes me but i'm so ashamed I still could do such a thing. It would never happen again with me.
Around 6 months after my ban. I had my first fake account that I shared with a friend. Im not going to reveal who this friend is. People have thought the accounts were entirely mine. But in fact we have shared every fake account i have played on. It was to get diffrent ips, to make me more untraceable and also as a for fun thing. These are the fakeaccounts we shared:
DancingQueen
Lobello
Lucky
Zyzz_brah
Luigo

I'm never gonna play on fakenicks again, because I hate it so much, I hate being anonymous. I hated to lie about who I was in order to not get banned so I could keep playing the game I loved for just a bit longer.
I never touched a single cheat since the day after that tournament in june 2011. I streamed while playing on Zyzz_brah and Lucky. You have no idea how much I love this game, so even if the rules tells me i cannot play this game, if you love the game you'll do what it takes to just touch it, just play it again once, even if its only for a week every 6 months.

So now it has been 2 and a half years pretty much exactly.
In 2014, i really hope i could get another chance in quake. just to get unbanned. I would never ever in this life throw that away, Im confident I could bring alot back to the community if im just given the chance.
I will probably never give this up, I just cant give up quake for this stupid mistake I did. People will just tell me to give up and quit, I dont care.
