CPM Masters 2014 in the makings. (66 comments)
Posted by EKSelenc @ 13:02 CDT, 1 September 2014 - iMsg
November 2013 was a great month for cpma Promode. Not only did we hold the first Cup with a decent prize pool in a long time, but we also managed to fund it well enough to actually become the highest stakes' event ever in the history of the favorite title. What's more important, we stated, as a matter of fact, that we are capable of making such kind of thing happen all by ourselves, starting from the donations and through to the winners announcement. Love and passion for the game has been retained throughout the whole tourney, bringing spectators some of the finest jewels to marvel at, including matchups between veterans and newer players, adepts of different playstyles and approaches.

It is now time to get prepared for CPM Masters 2014. The next Cup is to start on late November, with finals being closed out somewhat at the end of the year.

Donations are accepted via PayPal to from anyone willing to take part or show some support for CPMA CPM. Any sum is welcome, but this time the goal should probably be trying to beat last year's pool of $1,400.

As for the tournament's format, the discussion is currently open to the community.

We welcome any members of the community to share thoughts on the upcoming event in the comments or on #masterscup. A news post on ESR will be made once the details has been worked out.

Show your love for Promode once again! Donate for Masters Cup to be big this year.
Faceit New Cup Format (29 comments)
Posted by easytarget @ 12:47 CDT, 1 September 2014 - iMsg
Hi to everyone, I know it has been awhile since we have done any updates in regards to Quake Live on our site. Well I am happy to announce that we have changed our cup format completely in order to offer our beloved Quake Live community the chance at some free daily cups. Please refer to the schedule below or visit us on the Faceit Site.

We have also decided to bring back and promote the beloved team aspect of Quake Live with some 4v4 TDM/CTF Cups every second Sunday, in the early evenings. These events will be held bi-weekly with the first event being TDM in EU and CTF in N.A. The first event will be at 11:00 CDT, 14 September 2014 in EU and in NA at 18:00 CDT, 14 September 2014 . We are hoping that some of the players who normally play and stream would be willing to help out and sign a team up and stream these events in EU.

Feedback in regards to these changes is always of course welcomed and we would like to know what you all are thinking. All of our cups will still be played in the Quake Live "Classic" style of play, they are still Bo1 until the Semi-Finals and Final which is Bo3. With all of the major updates that have occurred and are still coming, at this time we are not able to add any new Quake Live accounts to FACEIT Profiles. This is due to changes in the Quake Live API, which our systems are not yet in line with. Hopefully this issue will soon be resolved and very soon new Quake Live accounts can be added to profiles again.

Quake Live Update - August 27, 2014 (728 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 11:44 CDT, 27 August 2014 - iMsg
The long awaited update that stirred up a lot of heated arguments is finally here, this is one of the first steps towards the transition that will prepare ql Quake Live for the official steam Steam release. The developers included a heartfelt message along with the changelog, instead of the stale config variable and map fixes, this time the impactful changes won't leave anyone unaffected. The mellow message from the developers shines light on a new perspective that you either love or hate. Is this a new beginning or the everlasting end? You decide.
"Quake is a masterful game of skill, often compared to Chess by its veteran players. However, with that depth has come a challenge to welcome and capture new players long enough for them to discover the joy to be found in what many consider the finest Deathmatch game ever made."

Winz interview by Esportactu (89 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 07:55 CDT, 25 August 2014 - iMsg
Hello. Esportactu is glad to present you its last interview with France Michaël "Winz" Bignet, famous for his carreer in UT2k4, Q4 and QL. The interview was mainly motivated by his recent good performance in the 125 FPS August league, where he was able to beat Russia Pavel "pavel" Fomkin in two maps, which no one really expected.

In this interview, we asked Winz about his QuakeCon experience and his return on the duel field, but also about the next Unreal Tournament game, his loan to Russia Sergey "evil" Orekhov in 2013, and the future changes to QuakeLive gameplay. As a bonus, you'll find Winz config and setup at the beginning of the interview.

Here is an extract of the interview:
France Esportactu: Your presence on the duel scene makes me think of your unfriendly relation with strenx, since you could have to play him one day or another. Is the perspective of beating him a source of motivation or does it make no difference ?

France Winz: It would probably have mattered a few years ago. As I said, I have a more casual approach to the game now and this ego war does not move me anymore. Honestly, if we had played at QuakeCon, in the shape I was in, he would probably have beaten me, and I have no problem with that.

More on
We also have an interview with Norway Kenneth "plazma" Aulie, which will be uploaded soon. Play more Quake !

Don't you think it is about time that North America had a proper online series? It is my pleasure to bring to you the first of many Quake Live events. This event is part of a project I am starting to preserve (and hopefully grow) my favorite genre, the Arena-First-Person-Shooter. (a working title) is the foundation for the project, and will be host to Monthly Quake Live Events. General information on the first Cup is below. For more details, comments, or questions come visit the website.
