Cypher interviewed about Quake Champions (57 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 20:35 CDT, 24 June 2017 - iMsg
"In 2006, aged only 16, Belarus Alexey "Cypher" Yanushevsky was signed by Fnatic. By that point, he was already one of the strongest Quake players out there — both the third and fourth instalment. Cypher continued to make a living playing quake until 2014. According to him, it was only in 2011, when the first International was announced, that Quake’s lagging behind other esports disciplines began to be felt.




Cypher spent the last year and a half playing Overwatch, but switched to Quake Champions when its beta was announced — and went on to win its very first online tournament. CyberSport.ru talked to Yanushevsky about his career in Overwatch, the Quake Champions meta, and the esports prospects of this new game."

Preview:

Is it fair to say Quake Champions has become too much of an arcade game?

Belarus Cypher: It became simpler by an order of magnitude. This is a game in which you can’t heal yourself back to full, the way you could in previous Quake instalments; you can’t stack up and just circle the map killing everyone. That’s why the game used to be one-sided; there would be the one guy who was killing everyone and having fun.

Here, it’s built a bit differently. You’ve got abilities you can use in a mass fight, and besides, a hero has a health cap that can’t be exceeded. No matter how many megahealths and armors you pick up, if you get hit from a railgun, the second hit will kill you, unless you’re some super-fat tank. And if you are a super-fat tank, you’re very easy to hit.

They’ve balanced the game with newcomers in mind. In Quake III, you respawn with a machine gun, 125 HP, and zero armor, and until you pick up a good gun and a more or less decent armor suit, you won’t be fragging anyone. Here, you can take down someone who’s full-HP with just that machine gun. You can’t be chased around spawn points. The abilities, the invisibility, the orbs, the teleports, it’s all about doing everything to prevent top-tier players from owning noobs, to stop noobs having 0/45 runs.

winz on his career, Korea, stats and more, part 2 (12 comments)
Posted by RadoNonESR @ 11:29 CDT, 22 June 2017 - iMsg
winz reminiscing about his career: 'I usually have a very good idea of where I stand individually...'

While modern-day esports fans recognize Michael "winz" Bignet as a skilled and versatile Overwatch player—who is ready to play whatever position his team needs—his career as a professional player began more than a decade ago. In the distant 2004, he was already representing ‘against All authority’, a brand veteran fans will recognize as a once staple name among the upper echelon the French esports scene.

While winz wasn’t a regular in the offline circuit at the time, he’d grow to be recognized as one of the best in the games he played. Throughout 2005, he became UT2004 world champion by winning ESWC in France, his home country. 2006 saw him earning the gold again, but this time for Quake 4 with notable wins over toxjq, now recognized as the greatest Q4 player, and Cypher, who would eventually become the best, and arguably greatest, Quake duelist to date.

After the introduction of Quake Live, winz gave up on the 1v1 mode due to a number of gameplay changes he didn’t enjoy and the continued prevalence of old maps. For several years, he wasn’t part of the highest level of offline competition, but eventually made a comeback in team modes and games, winning premier tournaments in Quake Live TDM, ShootMania, and most recently, Overwatch.

Played a couple of games with Major on Nightmare, as usual trying to win by 40 frags difference for fun, and because I hit a couple mid-airs, I decided to go through the demos and try to make something with that, just to see what it would look like. Well here it is.

With all ten champions I did Tri-Bolt and Nailclimbing experiments, and here are the results, self-damage, angles etc. A lot of tricking seems possible, but the champions' different physics, speedcaps, and collision models do cause problems. I sincerely hope that on release there will be a mode with equal physics and without speedcaps, and mod-support for custom maps, so that the trickjumping and DeFRaGgery can go wild :)

Just a couple trickjumps, some which are easy and some hard. Some which may come in handy in real gameplay and some which are more arbitrary. I'm using Nyx and Visor primarily, because I couldn't think of many interesting things to do with the other champions.

If you have any movement related question, ask away. I can give rough observation/feel based answers, that might turn out to be false.

Songs:

Quake 1 Scourge of Armageddon - Music #3
Quake 2 OST - Climb (Jer Sypult)

Special thanks to Mazu for sticking around!

All non-NA/EU players removed from Qualifiers (118 comments)
Posted by dirtbox @ 08:04 CDT, 16 June 2017 - iMsg
From ESL Discord:
Hello @everyone ! We would like to let you know that the NA qualifiers are meant only for NA & CA based players and the EU qualifiers are meant only for the EU based countries. This means that for these qualifiers, we won't be able to accept players (or teams with players) from Asia/Africa/Australia/Latin America. We have already removed those that were from the mentioned regions from the qualifiers and we hope that you will help us spread this message so it reaches them and the other players from these regions that were planning to participate. Many thanks and happy fraggin'!

Yet on the Bethesda page it says people can play with High Ping from other regions.

NOTE: All Qualifiers will be played on NA or EU servers. However, other regions can participate in these Qualifiers with higher latency. NA includes the Americas and Australia, and EU Europe, Russia and Asia.
Update 2017-06-19 by Åke Vader: Apparently this has been resolved. According to some obscure Discord quote Africans and Asians will now be allowed to play in the European region, while Australians and Latin Americans are allowed to play in the North American region.
