Quakecon 2015 has been recently announced, and players are starting to arrange their trips to take part in what - for the moment - looks like being the only major event for Quake Live in 2015.

Tonight, Sweden Pelle "fazz" Söderman announced on his stream that he will be going to Quakecon, and participate in the tournaments there. The specific formats are yet to be revealed, but rumors talk about the traditional Duel Masters plus a Team focused tournament.

Fazz is an old school player, with good performances in both duel and TDM. His last apparitions were at Lan Prague, where Sweden 4 old men arrived 2nd cup_silver, beaten by the Russian powerhouse Russia deliberate murder, and at the 125FPS Showmatch agains his countryman Sweden Spart1e which resulted in a 4-3 for fazz.


The participation of fazz to this tournament is sponsored by Switzerland Memento_Mori, who last year supported Belgium Romain "dem0n" Leclercq in his trip to Quakecon.

The popular science-entertainment programme featuring Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage is taking a wild turn, next week's special will give the universe of DooM Doom a shot - debunking myths for your ever present pestering questions. How does a BFG actually work? How can I survive on another planet? How do I get rid of those pesky satanic aliens?

The team will be joined by id id Software's own Tim Willits, the show will be hosted on the Discovery Channel at 08:00 CST, 31 January 2015. The team will use the Doom 3 BFG edition as a reference point.

Rumors has it that this could hint on a new Doom release date, maybe Bethesda has something in the oven and they're using this event to promote their upcoming title. Those who preordered Wolfenstein: The New Order should be the first to receive their beta keys, as stated in the previous Doom 4 announcement.

Reflex update released, netcode changes (244 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 23:08 CST, 16 January 2015 - iMsg
Refex developers released a rather hefty update that plays a vital role in online FPS titles. - the netcode has been reworked, Ion Cannon (The quake lightning gun equivalent) damage has been lowered from 9 to 7 along with its knockback, spawn system has changed, hit sounds have been updated and plenty bugs were squashed. A snippet from the overview dealing with netcode
"The new Reflex netcode uses a combination of extrapolation and backwards reconciliation in attempt to keep what you're seeing consistent across clients and servers. This lag compensation has an upper limit of 80ms -- if you have more than an 80ms ping, you'll need to lead by ping - 80ms. I.e, if your ping is 100ms, you'll need to lead by 20ms.
Our backwards reconciliation has the same limit -- if your enemy has a ping of over 80ms, they won't be able to shoot you from 500ms in the past."
You are welcome to give it a shot, report feedback to developers and let them know how the netcode feels right now - if you're pinging below 80 it should be quite noticeable.
