Z Live is Recruiting (305 comments)
Posted by zoot @ 12:25 CDT, 29 July 2014 - iMsg
As some of you know, I am still a student. I've been very lucky this year to be able to spend all of it working on what I love most, gaming. However, now we get back to the start of the academic year. In September I will begin my last year of university, so therefore a lot of the time I'd normally spend streaming will be spent on actual studies. Although that's not to mean I won't stream at all.

This brings me to the topic of the thread. In order to continue with the activity on the channel, we have decided that we're going to recruit at least one new caster/streamer. This announcement is a call out to anyone who is interested. We are not so obsessed by how experienced or inexperienced you are in commentating games. Without making this look too much like a formal job application, I will bullet point what we are looking for.

- Quake lover, gaming addict
- Capable of streaming high quality video through Twitch
- Available for at least 4 week day evenings per week
- Self-motivated
- Clear voice and high level English skills
- Familiarity with Z Live and what's been happening through Quake Live's existence
- A shared vision


I want to highlight to people that this is NOT the end of casting for me on Z Live. I'll still turn up to certain events when I'm able to, I will still host subscriber events and if the opportunity arises; I will go to LAN events.

If you're interested in applying, please contact us through zhouseproductions.com. Tell us about yourself, why you want to join and why you think you are right for the part. Considering you are contacting us to shoutcast, sending in clips of your commentary will greatly add to your application.

Prague TDM LAN #2 UPDATE #2 (32 comments)
Posted by wision @ 11:06 CDT, 29 July 2014 - iMsg
Scheduled: 03:00 CDT, 19 September 2014 to 13:00 CDT, 21 September 2014
Begins In:

As you have probably noticed a problem with gaming cafe have arised. The owner had to close down the cafe, meaning that currently we do not have any place to host Prague TDM LAN #2. I've been looking for alternatives, but either those places are closed as well, or the place looks really bad and have small number of computers, which does not meet the criteria for the lan. The District owner said that they already have a new place in Prague, but it needs reconstruction and they will let me know by the end of this week if they will manage to set up the place before our lan.

Here are the options left for us:

1) Cancel the lan and those who already booked flights and hotels I can meet up in Prague and have non-gaming weekend.
2) Wait until the end of the week and see if they will manage to finish the place before the lan.
a) If they do manage to prepare the venue, the lan can take place in the new venue.
b) If they won't manage to prepare the venue, we can go to option #1 or postpone the lan until the venue is opened (but let's discuss that later).

For now I decided to wait until the end of the week, as it seems as the best option for us and letting you guys know right after. Either way, if anyone from the donators wants to have his donation returned, please let me know (in case the lan is canceled, all of them will be returned of course).

I'm sorry that I don't have better news for you and it really saddens me that this kind of problem showed up.

The pilot episode of "Quake Live Top Plays"

IMPORTANT NOTES:
- The pilot is to see if the show would be suitable for a full series, It's by no means a refined product.
- The content is essentially test footage and is not current or up to date.
- The ordering of the frags was done by the producer and does not properly reflect a fair and balanced judgement.

The third movie of the Short Montage series made by Poland AGRESS0R. Premiere was held at QuakeCon 2014. The movie is available for download in 720p 60 FPS and 1080p 60 fps which i recommend!

Content of the movie is more extensive than before. I took care of the quality and smoothness. Most moments are Capture the flag, but other game modes also took into account.

The next video is in preparation. Whoever is willing to show their interesting moments of Quake Live please contact us.

Quakeworld 1on1 Aerowalk Tourney (45 comments)
Posted by dirtbox @ 07:43 CDT, 23 July 2014 - iMsg
To keep the QuakeWorld momentum going during the summer, a series of duel tournaments have been hosted the last couple of months. We have seen people battle it out on DM2 already where a winner is soon to be crowned and the DM4 campaign just started this week. Next up is a tournament on the popular fast-paced map Aerowalk which will run in parallel with the DM4 tournament. The rules are simple; it's QuakeWorld 1on1 deathmatch and the map is Aerowalk where the winner is decided in a best of three maps series. A double-elimination bracket is used to ensure that the best Aerowalker is indeed crowned king after the gunsmoke has settled.

The registration for the tournament opened up this week with the tournament starting in around four weeks from now. There will be a 32 player limit and we will hopefully see many entertaining matches as notable signups so far include some of the absolute top players in QuakeWorld today; Norway Rikoll, Sweden Locust and Sweden Bps among others.
