myztro reveals team (54 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 09:26 CDT, 6 August 2017 - iMsg

Newly established UK based esports organisation Myztro gaming has revealed their Quake Champions roster via a short but sweet YouTube video.

The Lineup Consists Of...
United Kingdom Gareth "Garpy" Marshall
Netherlands Sander "Voo" Kaasjager
United Kingdom Aaron "Hell" Jones
Portugal Gaspar "Hypno" Machado
United Kingdom Xavier 'Zoot' Dhorne

Myztro Gamings team manager, United Kingdom David "Zaccubus" Treacy, had this to say:
"You have no idea how happy and proud I am to be able to announce our Quake Champions Roster. We have some of the very best Arena Shooter talent, multiple world champions and arguably the best known voice in Quake, Zoot... Myself and the rest of the guys at Myztro Gaming have talked about possibly setting up an org for a very long time and with the recent resurgence of the Arena Shooters in esports, it was an oppertunity we could not let slide."

QWC EU & NA regionals live drawing today - patch on thursday (153 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 03:55 CDT, 1 August 2017 - iMsg
This info was given several days ago on the ESL Quake discord and was still not advertised.

Today at 18.00CEST there will be a livestream with United Kingdom Jake 'Mustard' Neal and United Kingdom Ryan 'Ketchup' Neal from the ESL Studio. They will be drawing the seeds and matchups to come for the Quake World Championships Regional Finals for both EU and NA

Quote :

A bracket draw for the EU and NA Regional Finals of the Quake World Championships will be streamed Tuesday, August 1st, at 18:00 CEST/9am PDT on twitch.tv/quakechampions.

The full list of teams and players can be found here: https://play.eslgaming.com/quake/global/quake...nship-2017

The bracket draw will happen in from the ESL UK studio and will be done by United Kingdom Ryan "Ketchup" Neal and United Kingdom Jake "Mustard" Neal.

Seeding pools will be based on time of qualification - duel players and sacrifice teams who qualified through the earlier online qualifiers will get a higher seed while players and teams who made it through later on will get a lower seed.


As a sidenote, it was speculated yesterday evening that there could be a patch this Thursday that should 'fix' the RL hit registration and bring changes to Clutch. See here what we could gather on the new incoming patch :

Much in the same fashion as the video from the Russian channel "C-c-combo breaker!", French journalists from the most popular gaming website in France, jeuxvideo.com, have gone into the id Software headquarters and gathered information for the much anticipated Quake Champions.

Here's what I could loosely translate and the link to the video itself.

Diabotical funded on kickstarter (90 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 17:13 CDT, 4 August 2016 - iMsg
It took as little as 5 days for The GD Studio's first game Diabotical to reach its premier goal of £110,000 on Kickstarter. However there's still a handful of weeks to go before the projects ends on Kickstarter, which means you can still contribute until the 1st of September 2016.

The GD Studio have included a few stretch goals already and have confirmed the possibility of adding a few more in the next days.

Esports interviews series #3 - Strenx (48 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 11:48 CST, 26 January 2016 - iMsg
I have been conducting a research lately around esports and have therefore had the chance to interview some (familiar) faces of esports in search for a better understanding of the phenomenon. At the start of it all, I made clear to my interviewees that their responses were not at first hand meant for wide publishing. However, now that I'm done with using the data, with their agreement, I have the possibility to release it as a series of interviews that can be, in my opinion, an interesting read for many people. So, here it is.


Themes: esports definition, esports origins, women in esports, the sport debate, new technologies, esports audience, esports prospects, upcoming challenges...

Today, I will be releasing the #3 interview notes with France Kevin "Strenx" Baeza. The interview did not need translating, as it was done in english by Strenx leself.

Looking for Let's Players (16 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 08:59 CST, 13 November 2015 - iMsg
Hello folks,

I'm currently in the process of writing an essay in which I'm looking to widen my horizons by conducting a few interviews. I have started making a list of potential interviews I could make with various people around the world of e-sport : players, streamers, platform managers, etc.

I'm currently looking for Let's Players to interview so that I can have a relevant sample of people who gravitate around the sphere of e-sport. If you are yourself a Let's Player or know someone who would agree to spend 30ish minutes with me answering to some questions to help me with my essay (that'd happen before december is upon us preferably), I'd really appreciate. I would obviously prefer finding a Let's Player who earns a relatively decent amount of money by doing those Let's Plays but even amateurs propositions are welcome as every profile is different and potentially interesting.

Lemme know :).

The long awaited official Aftermovie for the 2014 QuakeCon trip of the team The Expendables. The editing isn't what I had hoped for because I had to do it myself, using the very basic but simple Windows Movie Maker. I figured it would be better than nothing. I hope you guys still enjoy this 11 minutes and 30 seconds footage. <3.

Expendables Lineup: Sweden Spart1e, Netherlands Silencep, Netherlands eXodus, Belgium dem0n.

Huge thanks again to all who donated and supported us going through this tournament. I'd like to adress a special thank you to Memento_Mori aswell, you da boss !

I would like to stream some QL... (74 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 08:27 CST, 4 December 2014 - iMsg
But I need some setup advice from veteran streamers who use OBS.

Some of you may have seen me try to stream a little not so long ago but unfortunately I had to give up because I was either warping for my opponent or for myself. I think this is mainly a OBS setup issue because I should have the specs on my hardware and the bandwitdh necessary to stream Quakelive without any problem.

So I'm gonna throw here my specs and hope for a kind soul to explain to me what settings I have to make in my OBS to make it as smooth and relevant as possible.


Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
AMD Athlon X4 760K Quad Core Processor 3,80GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti
8GB RAM

speedtest.net results: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3959415736 (DL: 21,89mb/s UL: 4,87mb/s)

Thanks in advance for the help ;).

PS: would my specs allow me to stream csgo smoothly aswell ?

QL standalone and FPS (40 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 07:21 CST, 29 January 2014 - iMsg
Ever since the standalone came on I've had issues with my FPS. First of all, I have absolutely NO IDEA what I should set my com_maxfps to now. Also what the hell is com_idlesleep 0/1 and what does it do ?

What kind of FPS should I try to get ? Right now I've set com_idlesleep 0 and com_maxfps 125. But running around on toxicity the FPS still drop when I'm looking at certain areas of the map or if I'm spinning my mouse around.

Can anyone really help me understand anything in this mess and guide me toward values that are best for me ? I could not really find something definitive in all the hints I've got from various people so I've made this thread.

PS: never had a problem before standalone. What the hell happened... ?

Today, the french government won (or did they shoot themselves in the foot ?) a big battle against french humorist Dieudonné. For the first time ever in the country of human rights, a humoristic show for which 5,600 people have bought their tickets has been cancelled together with a force of 20 anti-riot vehicles.

This is a thread about freedom of speech and censorship.

Some articles that will surely help those who have no idea what the whole Dieudonné fuss is about:

My facebook fanpage (47 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 09:28 CDT, 26 March 2013 - iMsg
Following the new trend initiated by FraZe and because it's kind of a challenge for someone like me studying communication, I decided to put up my own fan page aswell on facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/dem0nQL

Seeing as I don't have a website either and I wish to centralize most of the stuff around my 'carreer' if you like, such as newest config, interviews, videos, pictures... to one single place, I thought this was a good opportunity to do so.

Audience boost initiative:

I have been thinking about it since I've started my page yesterday and I thought I would give it a go. I plan to hand out a free FaceIt shirt customized for the winner's desires if I'm to reach 300 likes. I will pick up a winner randomly from the 300 likers as soon as the number is reached !

I will keep updating my page with video snippets, interviews, config updates and what not !

Meanwhile well, cu in the arena ;)

Hello.

Well everything's in the topic. I have been hesitating recently: I need a new television but I also need a PC monitor (kinda tired of my crt, taking way too much space).

I don't know if I can find a screen that can do both while letting me enjoy quake the way it deserves.

If that doesn't exist though I think I'll buy separately. (And then I still hesitate between those DH BenQ, that LG w2363d, that asus vg236h and that samsung 2233rz, debate's open again :P)

Thanks !

I was just enjoying some duels on my laptop when this guy came on, I was beating him quite easily 8-1 near the middle of the game when he suddenly stopped moving, I came right next to him showing my impatience as i was ducking around, when he noticed it, he said 'killed winamp', a few minutes later i was defeated 8-13, with his accuracy largely improving.

Zhu admits cheating online and confesses (80 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 18:52 CDT, 1 August 2011 - iMsg
I have been talking to a good friend on comms and he finally confessed to me what was going on. I'm thankful he decided to confess it and I want to thank him for the trust he has gave me. This letter has been given to me a few minutes ago as he wanted me to post it as soon as possible on ESR. I will let you guys have your own opinion on a guy who, whatever happens, I will regret because he is still very good in ctf wether using cheats or not.

heres what he has to say:


Okay here it goes, as all of you is starting to noticing. Alot of talk about me cheating has came up, and I just want to say to you
that its true, I did use wallhack for some months. I played quakelive since 2009, and i was still a good player from q3, i started playing ctf in ql
and I played div 1 ever since i started and played like that for over a year and a half without cheating once, then in late march i discovered this cheat and
to be honest i was just curious at first. And at this time CTF was dead, and ive never cared about anything in QL but CTF so i was really not so motivated about this game
When I started to use it I actually thought it was interesting cause I had never used a cheat in my life in quake before, and i have played for a really long time.
I was already bored with this game, and for me to be using something that made me better was just fun cause I didnt care, and this kept going on for a quite a while.
Untill eventually now in early july, I realised how I was even more bored with the cheat, And I also realised what a dick i have been really using this cheat.
So I decided to drop the cheat completely and I realised it was two maybe three times more fun to play without, and I realised I was still very good without cheat
I really regreted what I had done and from there on out I never wanted to cheat again and never look back.... I just wanted to forget about everything I had done
and just play without cheat from that moment on cause I did wanna attend Dreamhack Winter 2011 and I still want to. Cause I knew I would do good on LAN anyway
cause I realised i was still very good. But since this wouldnt be forgotten this was my opportunity to just confess myself.
I am truly sorry for what I did and I regret it. I want to go to LAN and prove that I am a good player, I will never ever do something like this again since
I know now how retarded it is, not only did it ruin the fun for me (which I didnt realized at first) it also ruins for others.
And I really had few friends in the community, cause I enjoyed trolling alot, and I still do.
My friends know who they are, wether they wanna be my friends after this or not is up to them, I understand.
Im just really regreting everything thats why im also confessing this as you can probibly figure out
I will probably never be forgiven, thats alright. But atleast im admitting what I have done to the community.

Now that we have this fancy 'best item control' award, I had an idea earlier that might sound stupid and to be honest I did not think it through very much but...

What about some fun duel tournament where the goal is to be granted 'best item control' instead of winning ?

The goal is just to have that award, and you pass on the next round, wether you lost or won the match doesn't matter.


What do you think ?

After watching it, it looks like I did play bad and made some wrong decisions, much like killsen said... But a few weird shots in the beginning of that demo probably put my mind in a 'cheating suspicion' mindset. (thinking about the 00:25 railshot and then 00:40 and 01:16 for example)

I really don't know nor really care anymore for now. Just still curious who that guy really was and I was probably a bit pissed that the guy didn't "gg" and quit the game like a robber :D

CTF: High scoring, /kill and thoughts (10 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 12:11 CDT, 4 September 2010 - iMsg
Here's some thoughts about what my opinion is about these two topics and how they are connected with eachother in Capture The Flag !

A few weeks ago I ran into a conversation with deji and linkin about Capture The Flag. I have given most of what my thoughts are on the topic and I wanted to share it and give it a permanent writing.
Now I am a bit of a lazy person and each time I copy text from IRC I have to get rid of a lot of all the color parameters and whatnot, and that explains why I just rougly pasted it like that with not much formatting.

It is still a decent read though and I include some of linkin's quotes in my developping process.

Here's the thing:


standing on the flag is a strategy
DEM0N: if you do this that probably mean you were ahead in score thus were better than the other team at attacking or taking advantage first anyway
removing that part of the game made it a complete random course of events that eventually lead to high scores (and for some strange unexplainable reason praised by almost everyone) like 6-3 that means little to how a close a game was or wasnt
or 5-3 or whatever example of scores we have now
People also blame those low scores games due to random spawns that occur much more often in 5v5 because there are +2 players playing. But it also happens in 4v4 and eventhough it happened less, it did contribute to luck much more than 5v5 did
in 5v5 you were atleast practically sure there would be spawns in your way, making team escorts an important part of the game
LINKIN: i think 5v5 would be cool IF:
LINKIN: -bigger maps
LINKIN: -kill bind
DEM0N: yeah kill was always something I wanted but ID won't make it I guess
for some odd reason they believe kill was a flaw and had to be removed.
LINKIN: 'kill' was like 40% of teamplay
DEM0N: I have also already explained before in various posts on various forums why in my opinion, kill gave the game much more depth and reduced the luck factor (funny enough, most people think it made the game completely random, but theyre completely wrong, if they would just think about the whole 'risk' part there is in losing time killing yourself)
also if you dont have kill, you're completely at the mercy of luck
during a cross cap, if you get the unlucky spawn and the opponent gets the lucky one, you are already down 0-1, whilst with kill, you could either choose to run by your feet to where you believe you are needed to be (mid e.g.) and thus not taking any risk of spawning 4 times in a row in base (considering spawning takes 2 seconds, you can lose up to 10 seconds, which is usually more than enough on most maps to make a cap)
OR you can take the risk and kill yourself reducing the luck factor by getting the lucky spawn aswell
Conclusion: less randomness, more depth in the game.

kill might also make you spawn ahead of the map, let's take the example of Japanese Castles. You're bored of spawning in base, and running into incoming enemies ? Making sometimes useless fights that you dont want to commit in ? You're enemy is also probably pissed that you spawn in their way. The solution? Kill. You get the chance to teleport yoruself ahead of the incoming offenders of the other team. Consequence ? Game is faster, pressure on the defenders is bigger, less defense heavy games ? You decide.

another good balance that Kill gives is when you want to kill yourself to give the powerup. It was another underestimated balance.You get the powerup, or even the flag, and you want to give it to a partner. Killing yourself was the only option you had, this advantage you gain by giving powerups to a 'item-holder' or 'pu runner' or whatever was beeing balanced by the fact that you actually died and respawned naked with nothing in hand
LINKIN: true
LINKIN: now you can just drop the flag and still cover :/
DEM0N: it even happened that I killed myself to give a decent weapon to a partner. Now I understand that this might not be a spectator friendly feature to kill yourself, but removing it did reduce the depth CTF teamplay had and thus for most CTF lovers/fans it's another downgrade
thats all that comes to my mind now and if it didnt convince you kill atleast wasnt that BAD, then nothing will (talking to deji).
now CTF is still fun to play and I can live without kill... (and basically, my thought is that 5v5 evens out a bit more the random midspawn luck factor by making games more crowded and thus less random midclear caps.)


Your thoughts ?

QuakeLive Recruitment Center (3 comments)
Posted by dem0n @ 11:17 CDT, 27 May 2009 - iMsg
Hey guys!

Today, we are proudly announcing the release of something new: The Quake Live Recruitment Center.

The concept is quite simple: if you're looking for a clan or for players, here's just the place for all of you !
We had the idea to create a system here at #teams.ql in which anyone can easily find a clan that fits his shoe or find future teammates to complete their lineup!
We support all the teammodes (TDM/CTF/CA) and use a variety of filters to make your search criterias as sharp as possible.

If you have any kind of question, suggestion, etc. just get on #teams.ql on QuakeNet.

I want to particularly thank Lashknife who has done an amazing work coding the whole package !

Recruitment Center:
IRC: #teams.ql @ QuakeNet
Admins: Lashknife, Malice, dem0n
Holysh1t.net -> Quake Live Resources -> Recruitment Center

See you in the arena !

Sweet game of Q3CTF: drugs&porn vs omega

League: Stickrunners - www.stickrunners.com
Week 2: Q3W7/Q3WCP1

The q3w7 map isn't all that but I thought the second map, q3wcp1 to be a very nice and agressive one so I've just decided to put it on ESR, the other reason being that I feel there aren't enough CTF demos on ESR so here goes my contribution...

How to play back Q3 demos


In this ZIP you will find all three maps of the very controversial Q3CTF ClanBase NC XI Finals Sweden SWEDEN vs Belgium BELGIUM.

I thought there was no real host for this game and many people asked for those demos so here's my contribution... Have Fun !

Link to the CB match report

Reminder:


Sweden Sweden 0 - 6 Belgium Belgium

Belgium q3w3: 0-1
Sweden q3wcp1: 0-1
Belgium q3ctf2 0-3

EDIT: Some of the files in the .ZIP were wrong, the issue has been solved, sorry for the inconvenience...
