In the company of fazz, a QCon2015 story (258 comments)
Posted by noctis @ 11:31 GMT, 18 March 2015 - iMsg
Once upon a time there was a quake player called Sweden fazz who very much liked to play duel at QuakeCon. But shortly after his wish was granted by our lord and savior Switzerland Memento_Mori something unexpected happened. QuakeCon announced that for the first time since 2007 it wouldn't have a regular duel tournament but instead hold a team based tournament, the Quake Live Tri-Master Tournament.

Naturally he decided to look for other players and quickly found team mates in Sweden Spart1e, Belgium dem0n and Australia noctis who all were interested in attending QuakeCon this year and thus Europe Team Averagers was born. But to actually get that team to QuakeCon your support is now needed! With fazz's flight already paid for the rest of the team can use any financial help they can get to actually make this happen.

The donation goal is set to 1000 but even anything below that would already help tremendously!

Update: Thanks to everyone who donated we are able to announce that the goal has been far exceeded! All our flights are booked and we have signed up (applied) to the Quake Live Tri-Master Tournament. Everyone in the team is really excited about practicing TDM and CTF in the coming months and we hope to live up to all your expections!

Special shoutout to 2GD who donated an amazing $1,089.07!

Donation total: $2,302.34
If you still wish to donate please mention in donation message that it is for QuakeCon.

125 FPS One Map Cup - Dismemberment (60 comments)

Schedule: Passed

We are continuing our tradition of running "One Map Cups" for the new map from our main league season (#23), this time i am talking about Dismemberment, also known as hub3tourney1.
On one hand, this map is not new, we could see it in "ancient" tourneys when fatal1ty and polosat1y ruled the quake cups, but recently we couldn't see it so often. For example, at QL IEM 5 (VOD cooller vs rapha), FACEIT QL Legend Cup (2012, av3k - winner). At 125 FPS League this map was only one time before - at Sep'2013 League (winner - cypher).

So,24 March 18:00 GMT One Map Cup - Dismemberment, Double Elimination, all matches BO1, prizepool is 300 USD now, if someone can add some money to the prizepool - would be cool.

24 March 19:00 CET Dismemberment Cup sign up link

No bans at this moment, so anyone can participate, welcome and gl. Sign-up link will be placed here few hours before the cup starts
