Soo many words...

Let's face it, Quake Live from a business perspective has no future. I mean where is the incentive for a new player to join Quake Live nowadays? Imagine you were a 13 years old teenager, would you play Quake? Quite frankly I would not. The community is small, the game looks cheap, the features are limited in all respects, and foremost: the game is way to difficult for a beginner.

All these factors have consequences on several levels:

- The community will grow too little (if it does at all in the long-term)
- Revenues from players will be most likely insignificant for ID as the community size will remain small or even will decrease plus the fact that only a really limited amount of players will be willing to pay for Quake Live anyways

(I personally think even if some of you would agree to pay for Quake Live during the next three years, these revenues would never offset all the costs to maintain Quake Live on such a level that the majority of players will be ever satisfied)

- So if user fees won't be sufficient the remaining revenue source are ads, but why would any company want to pay a considerable amount of money to ID to use their platform as a marketing channel?

- Even if some companies would do so, I can't imagin ID to be in a bargaining position that allows them to request a premium price for their platform

So in summary, if I were you and if I would still play this game, I would be really happy that there is still a community left that offers sufficient possibilities and variation to enjoy the game.

How to play back Q4 demos


Here we have both participants from the overall-final in the second (online) ESWC qualifying. A quick look on the tourneytree proves, that both players faced each other in three best of threes. In the first match JuN seemed to be indeed the weaker one, however he fought himself through the losers-bracket until he faced dukki again, but this time in the overall final.
This demopack is devided in three pieces and this is Jun_vs_dukki_3b

For those, who don't know how the whole qualifying-system works:

There are 8 pre-qualifying tourneys in germany, as well online as offline. Every tournement offers one spot for the overall qualifying tournement that is going to take place in Munich. So there will be eight contenders at the end, who will outplay offline the only slot that ESWC has given to germany for the great ESWC in Paris.
