Level Up TV - DHW'10 After Movie (78 comments)
Posted by Trance @ 10:47 CST, 7 December 2010 - iMsg
Level Up TV would today, a week after the conclusion of the Quake Live tournaments at DreamHack Winter, like to conclude our own personal on-site coverage of the event by releasing the secondary content we promised in our initial press release.

As an organisation, we were well aware of the difficulties that we could potentially meet head on when initially taking on the huge task of covering live events on-site, we wanted to make efforts to ensure that we provided the best possible service to our viewers with the limited resources that we had at our disposal. Taking all of this into consideration we are today able to release our "Level Up TV at DreamHack" video presentation.

The 71 minute footage was recorded during the 3 days of the Quake Live tournaments and it varies in content from interviews, event area walkthroughs, the ramblings of the players and of course, a brief chat with mr. Day9 himself!

The main purpose of it, was to try and share with the viewers our first time experience at DreamHack, showcasing some of that atmosphere that both Quake Live and DreamHack is so famous for.

Once again we hope you have all enjoyed our coverage for this event and we would like to thank all of our donors, viewers and supporters.

See you in 2011!

DreamHack Winter 2010: Preview (32 comments)
Posted by Bocerbo @ 11:58 CST, 23 November 2010 - iMsg
TEK9 are preparing their coverage of the DreamHack Winter 2010 Quake Live tournaments, posting a Preview of the tend players you need to look out for the most.

The first post, released earlier today, focuses on the Favourites of the event. It included an extensive look at players such as Russia Cooller, Belarus Cypher and United States of America rapha.

Here is a small excerpt of the article:
"There is one golden rule concerning champions and winning streaks: they will end. The question usually focuses on the when and not how or if. Oddly enough, the home-grown QuakeCon 2010 would be the setting and place for Shane "rapha" Hendrixson's reign to end. Prior to the event, he had said he did not feel as comfortable as usual and would experience a hard event, but the way and spot he crashed out was far outside anyone's expectations. Throughout the event he was looking shaky and the gruesome schedule (as he was also playing for a CTF team there and everyone constantly had to switch between CTF and Duel) played a toll on his nerves and his usually so calm self."
So if you are interested in Quake Live and looking forward to the DreamHack Winter 2010 events, be sure to head on over to TEK-9 and read this article.

Posted by blaze @ 15:50 CST, 8 November 2010 - iMsg
The last 3 invites were today handed out. First out is the FPS-Legend from the CPL World Tour a few years back, Netherlands Vo0. The Dutch player has been attending to DreamHack a few times before, claiming the Gold in the DreamHack CPM tournament.

The bronze medal winner of our last Quake Live tournament this summer was also invited: France strenx.

The last invite goes to the Swedish Quake profile Sweden fazz, who impressed everyone this summer with his enjoyable mind and play style and thus won the Kaspersky's Award for his performance!

With the three last invites an additional International Qualifier was announced. It will take place in Spain during the 13th of November. Notable attendees in Spain is Sl1p and p0ni amongst others.

After the 14th of November when the qualifier in The Czech Republic is finished the lineup for the Kaspersky's Quake Live Championships will be complete.

Level Up TV announce their DHW2010 Plans (35 comments)
Posted by lolvc @ 06:29 CDT, 18 October 2010 - iMsg
Level Up TV announce the plans to celebrate their one year anniversary this November 2010; a team to travel and provide live on-site video coverage of not one, but two Dreamhack Winter 2010 Quakelive Tournaments!

1. Fnatic Play MSI BEAT-IT 1v1 Tournament on the 25th November 2010.
2. Dreamhack's own Kaspersky 1v1 Tournament on the 26th and 27th November 2010.

As an organisation, we are well aware of the difficulties that broadcasters often face when initially taking on the huge task of covering live events on-site, and as such we wouldn’t want to over promise and underachieve. However with an unquenchable thirst for coverage we can with full confidence promise to provide both our HQ and LQ livestream with special guest commentary from both pro-gamers and James "2GD" Harding (When we can get him away from the Stunlock Studios Stand!).

In addition to this, being on site will allow us to provide the supplementary video-on-demand content following the event that we've not yet previously had the opportunity to work on - such as; group interviews, Exhibition video tours and our teams evening antics to display that unique festival atmosphere DreamHack is so famous for.

If you have any comments regarding specific improvements we could make to our existing video streams, or any ideas on how you think we should cover DreamHack Winter 2010 then please direct your comments to or reply to this post.

This is our first live event and as such, our team are financing this on our own terms. However if you have thoroughly enjoyed the coverage we have brought to you thus far and would like to contribute toward the costs of the additional equipment we require to move toward live event coverage for the forseeable future then please, we welcome all donations through our counter on the right hand side of our website and here:
