Interview with strenx (118 comments)

German eSport site talked with France Kevin "strenx" Baeza after his last Dreamhack attendance, where he surprisingly placed second behind the polish power house Poland Maciej "av3k" Krzykowski after defeating team mate Sweden Sebastian "Spart1e" Siira with a solid RG of about 45 % and his uproar with a devastating shaft of 40,75 % on Sweden Magnus "Fox" Olsson.

But who is this young 17 year old guy who comes from Angers in France? fragster was asking:

Are you pursuing a certain goal, which you want to achieve? Have you got an idol? (Maybe St_Germain?)

strenx: I’m just playing for fun *laughs*, but of course I'm trying my best. My idol was fox when I was younger and I can't say he isn't it anymore. Actually I really played with St_Germain from time to time when I was very very young *laughs*.

Read the full interview (Germany version) and get an insight of his stats on how he played Dreamhack.

Interview with fox at DreamHack (70 comments)
Posted by lowje @ 10:11 CST, 4 December 2008 - iMsg
Sweden Magnus "fox" Olsson was one of the most famous quakers attending this DreamHack Winter 2008. He managed to achieve the biggest combined prize money in the Quake Forever tournaments with the 3rd rank in VQ3 and the 1st in CPM, earning him a total of 1 050€ and 575€ worth of products.

After his games, he found some minutes to answer my questions.

Now that I got the pictures out, I might as well write about my personal experience at the event. Timeline might be a bit off but you easily lose track of time and what is going on at Dreamhack. So I'll just try to remember what happened when. It ended up being a bit too long and about all sorts of random crap so be warned.
I also uploaded some videos from the event which you can find on the last page of this article.

Here's my share of pictures from the Dreamhack Winter 2008 event in Jönköping, Sweden. Unfortunately it was fairly dark at all times and my camera is rather crap (Fujifilm Finepix J50) but hopefully you can get a bit of an impression from the event regardless.

Thanks to all the people who made these 4 days such an awesome experience, in particular our great admins blaze and Dronar, and the CPM gangsters including fox.

In just a few days from now the long awaited Dreamhack CPM Tournament in Sweden Jonkoping will kick-off. Those of you who are interested in an in-depth preview of the tournament and its favorites can check out our DreamHack preview on

Here is an extract:
"The four strongest players in the tournament appear to be Sweden fox, Germany toxt3r, Finland LuGia and Poland pod1. As for the other Top Seeds it looks like Finland ouzo and Finland cubik won't be attending and Germany tubo's attendance is still up in the air. However, the skill gap between the top4 and the rest of the competition seems to be rather big with tubo being the only one a bit closer"

Quake Forever: QL changes to Q3 (71 comments)
Posted by Dronar @ 13:05 CDT, 27 October 2008 - iMsg
Since Quake Live hasn't been released yet we won't be able to host our own LAN-servers. We have tried to reach ID-software for 2 months now, trying to come to some sort of agreement. This has sadly not resulted in anything positive.

In order not to have players playing their games on german public servers with 10 spectators in the way we've decided to change the choice of game to Quake 3 Arena (VQ3).
