Rapha's secret (8 comments)

He ALWAYS has 66 viewers. HOW THE FUCK does he do that?? And why 66? Did he make a pact with the devil? Is that where he got his skills from? All these years I was admiring him, and now this...

I mean, I get it, its anice dopamine source to rape noobs in that fashion, but how can actual Quakers be like "Woah this is great!".

Im not above playing thunderstruck and shit like that, but this is just kinda sad.

"God of War Sanchez", A study of a fictional character (24 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 06:28 CDT, 15 May 2019 - iMsg
Does anybody else get the feeling that God of War Sanchez, the guy who's larping as an eastern-european Quake God with bad English, isnt just doing that because he thinks that hes a comedic genius, but mostly because hes a failed Quake player who never really managed to be fully competetive and finally found a vessel to defend his fragile ego in the most unfiltered way possible? Like when people are pretending to be ironic or trolls, but they are actually wholeheartedly enjoying the petty bullshit they say?

Evidence 1: He seems to take his ongoing feuds with whiplash and drk extremly personal and even goes so far as to fake results. I doubt the desired comedic effect of his parody is to appear... sad?!

Evidence 2: Hes really not that good. I beat him in a FFA game in QC after not touching any videogame for a couple of months, and I was never/still am not highskilledm or even close to it.

I mean, I'm glad somebody is still delivering content for ESR in 2019, but I don't think it would hurt anybody if it wasnt as miserable as it is?!

Update

This thread brought us new conclusive evidence from "Sanchez" himself.

Evidence 3: "Another quake idiot, who thinks he won Sanchez, when Sanchez was not even playing."

He did. It was on the QC account that he posted here himself. But notice that rage. Where is the comedy in that? He just seems to have a hurt ego. He feels personally attacked. Not the character, but the person behind it.

Evidence 4: "Pay me money, 20.000$ and I will play with Drk.
Why would I do anything for free, being a master. "


So Drk is challenging to play him, and he... declines? Somebody is afraid to lose. Like a dude who cares mostly about saving his ego.

Evidence 5: "There is no feud, like literally some trash players are trying to hype on my name, without putting any effort into the game itself".

He is getting inconsistent with his story. Sanchez himself was the one who started bragging here with his wins against these players. The inconsistency in his narrative points to him falling out of character. He doesnt care about the comedy anymore because he now feels personally attacked.

Evidence 6: Suddenly, his English isnt as bad and broken anymore as before. The personal attacks provoked this, he can no longer maintain the parody.


Conclusion: It started off as a comedic parody of a eastern-european Quake pro with broken English. But right now we can see how the person behind it can no longer pretend to be that character "Sanchez", most likely because the personal attacks on his character also hurt the person behind it. This supports my hypothesis that the character "Sanchez" and the person behind it have a very strong resemblance in character traits. Kinda like when somebody says they are trolling, but they really arent, because they just wanna get that shit off their chest.

So all the other pros have a constant heartrate between 70 to 130. Toxiq is constantly on 160. I feel like the mystery behind toxiqs skill has finally been revealed

For the sake of competition, help Agent get to Quakecon (67 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 06:46 CDT, 6 August 2017 - iMsg
"According to Agent, he has a recently renewed passport, and he wrote to Syncerror and Zero4 repeatedly about an invitation, but got only one response quite recently from Zero4, asking for details what were already sent.

He didn't book an interview at the US embassy because he didn't know if he's going, and with current situation booking is almost impossible. So his only chance now is some help from ESL and/or id. Which is unlikely. To add to all of that, Agent's main source of income (sports betting) is quite unstable and can be a hurdle during the interview.

Also, side story of Agent and his LAN attendance (as told by him on his streams, with my opinions and if I'm remembering all that correctly). Some time around 2010-2011 he wanted to git gud at quake and win something. He was training constantly and already had some online and LAN top placements. So at some point he had a deal with M5 gaming organisation that they will support him going at Quakecon 2011. He got a foreign travel passport and was ready to go, placing a lot of effort in training. But less than month before the event M5 suddenly kicked him out, taking Cooller instead. M5 managers just said something like "Sorry, Cooller is a bigger name than you". That was the tilt moment for Agent, and he doesn't get anything e-sports related seriously since then. Also he says that all those rumours about him not having a foreign travel passport are untrue. Time checks out, btw, he could get a 5-year travel passport in 2011 and he could renew it with a 10-year travel passport in 2016 or 2017.

Some may dislike Agent, but there is unfortunately a big possibility that he will be unable to participate at Quakecon. He has quite a personality, he's objectively one of the top contender, he can be a great drama generator, and without him Quakecon will definitely be more dull, leaving us, viewers, at a loss."

Thats good for me, but bad for all the new players, I reckon. Rocket-based gameplay is much more fun.

Clutch and bethesdas weird decisions (69 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 10:29 CDT, 29 July 2017 - iMsg
So according to the latest patch log, the devs want to fix clutches shield so it doesnt let rockets through.

Why is clutch even in the game? Hes being picked in every tournament whenever it comes to the important stages, he's basically always the #1 pick, and theres a reason for it, hes a fucking fast tank.

Initially I thought that bethesda just take their time with balancing. And I liked that approach, for example companies like blizzard often patch too often and too drastic, which never really seems to work.

But fucking clutch is OP and I dont get why hes not being nerfed, it's boring to see him being picked exclusively in every important game. His ugly UT movement doesnt help, but my opinion about the dodge-movement may not be right, I just dont think it fits into Quake.

Anyway, watching the russians right now play all-clutch is just lame. But considering that I haven't read anythign about clutch here, I guess you guys all like robot dick :(

About the last 125fps Cup DDoS (113 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 08:05 CST, 19 January 2016 - iMsg
http://steamcommunity.com/id/deuccceee/

This is "pudding" on ESR, the guy responsible for the DDoS. He is a bitter german CA reject going by the name of deuce or sth like that. He can be found spending most of his time spectating Clan Arena matches and occasionally playing himself (hes around 1600 elo skill level, judging from what I've seen).

Also has Vac bans and Game bans. Anyway, obviously it had to be a German who only plays CA, nobody else could be that bitter.


Just thought I'd share this information. Im not even a fan of Zlive, but they do stream interesting matches.

Quakecon'15 Predictions (51 comments)
Posted by mattered_ @ 13:55 CDT, 22 July 2015 - iMsg
- Tox is overrated. At least in the context of this tournament. Hes more of a CPMA player than a OSP player. If rapha, cypher, dahang, evil and cooller are all in form, he won't make Top5.

- Americans will deliver, despite all the previous drama. The size of their ego simply won't let them fuck up. I expect especially Break to cause at least one upset in TDM. In CTF they will be largely dominant, even if they dont win.

- Zoot will show his ADD again and will wet himself during the first day.

- IG will embarass themselves thanks to having strenx and silcenep in their team. Clawz and Cypher also like to act arrogant, but they wont show it as much.

Now its your turn!
