Fraggie Fun TDM Draft Cup (62 comments)
Posted by FFT @ 12:06 CST, 9 February 2014 - iMsg
Scheduled: 12:00 CST, 12 February 2014 to 14:00 CST, 12 February 2014
Schedule: Passed

In memory of Netherlands Fraggie #cwn.tacs and #tdmpickup will be holding a small 64-player fun TDM cup this Wednesday (12 February).

Due to technical issues the event will be re-scheduled and we will post specific information as soon as possible. Our apologies and gratitude goes towards everyone who showed up.

The usual requirement of minimum 10 TDM pickups does not apply, however, you must have played at least one pickup within the last month!

Banned from #tdmpickup & CMSS (27 comments)
Posted by FFT @ 06:53 CST, 5 February 2014 - iMsg
After getting an IP clash with cmss I got banned from #tdmpickup.

This is a major bummer as most of my games were pickups and it is almost equivalent from being banned from quake live altogether.

After having a chat with #tdmpickup admin WhoDares my situations looks rather grim as he is quite convinced of his judgement.

We first tried to argue about matches being played on the same time and I thought I had found 3 matches with some overlap:


To him this seems inconclusive and apparently might be inaccurate.


So my only option according to the admin is to record us both playing a match between me and cmss with webcam etc.

So here goes my public challenge to you cmss. Neither of us have anything to lose from this so give me a time and date when you can do this.


As of prior to this my behavior on the pickups and on esr has been in line with the rules, without any indication or hint of us two being the same person.

Would quake benefit from cross platform? (61 comments)
Posted by FFT @ 03:42 CST, 3 February 2014 - iMsg
I just had the idea of quake going cross platform. I actually think it would be beneficial to quake knowing how popular consoles are.

Think about the pros and cons.

Cons:

You might say it would dumb down the game as it is now. It is a valid point, however, it is not much of a problem as I believe even with console standard of aim assist or not PC players would still have an edge given the superiority of a highly mappable keyboard binds and precision of mice. If anything it is an actual pro as not everyone needs to play quake on the highest level.

It would introduce an arbitrary split of the community. But this two could be bridged in some ways.

Pros:

I would make quake more popular and accessible curing the small player base it has. It would introduce console people to a good arena shooter as opposed to all the chest high wall hugging military shooters. If a console player fell in love with the game he/she would at some point hit a skill cap because of the flawed controller and switch to PC to keep improving.

Hell, it might even popularize PC gaming a little and if not it would still feed our ego over console fps plebs.

Console gaming seems more casual and if there would be always some active console players it would have an easier entry point for beginners and we wouldn't have to ponder so much how to teach new players the game while every newbie now already is at least intermediate level.

I tried to find some of the videos of a guy playing quake on an Xbox controller and some Aussie playing at a land with a joystick. If you have those videos post them here. It's a proof you can play the game on console to some extent.

EDIT:



Not the best way of playing the game and certainly have flaws, but these guys are still playing a legit quake game with different devices than keyboard and mouse. So it is possible.

Are there any failed or succesful cross platform games you know of? What was the reason for their success or failure?

DHW'13 Group Overview (163 comments)

Since the announcement of the seeds and the groups there has a been a lot of drama and excitement. I share a great deal of this excitement and spent some time looking at the groups and pondering what they will bring. It would have been an amazing tourney regardless but with the extra prize pool gathered by the community it might bring out some more hidden resources of players and even a more fierce competition.


If you read all this I am in awe if not - TL;DR- HYPE HYPE HYPE
