Posted by Asuka_ @ 16:47 CDT, 29 July 2017 - iMsg
"Today we are pleased to inform all fans of Ukraine Natus Vincere G2A that the organization is set to expand into competitive Quake Champions. Natus Vincere G2A will from now on be represented by Russia Anton Singov, more commonly known as «Cooller», a legendary Quake player and a multiple-time international champion with over $ 300,000 prize money secured during his professional career.

Anton consistently performs at an exceptional level and is truly a professional at what he does. Besides Quake, he’s also had a solid showing in Overwatch, when he managed to win DreamHack Winter 2016 aboard of the International Europe Misfits roster.

The first challenge awaits Cooller very soon as he will be participating in MediaMarkt’s duel tournament which boasts a total prize pool of 300,000 RUB. The competition is slated to take place at Moscow's Aviapark mall."

Virtus.pro signs Cypher (67 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 15:23 CDT, 29 June 2017 - iMsg
"One of the best Quake players in the world, Belarus Alexey “Cypher” Yanushevsky, has joined Virtus.pro and will represent our organization at QuakeCon. American and European teams showed an avid interest in the Belarusian player, who eventually chose in favor of Virtus.pro, with which he has signed a year-long contract.

After putting his Quake career on a hiatus in 2015, Cypher tried playing Overwatch, but returned to his original discipline following the announcement of the Quake Champions beta, and went on to win its first online tournament.

Cypher is among the Quake players with the most titles. To date, he is the quadruple winner of QuakeCon (2008, 2010, 2012, 2014). He is also a multiple winner of ESWC, DreamHack, European Extreme Masters, and ASUS Open."

6/27 Quake Champíons Patch update (73 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 03:17 CDT, 27 June 2017 - iMsg
Following some minor patches in the previous weeks, the 6/27 Quake Champions Patch introduces new Duel mode dynamic (best of 5 instead of best of 3), Clutch champion improvements, rocket delay fix, HMG nerfing, and new spectator features for better streaming experience. Check out the full Patchlog below:
"Tomorrow (June 27) at 6am ET, we'll be conducting maintenance to deploy our latest patch. With this patch, we are expecting a longer than average server downtime, with an estimated reopen time of around 2pm ET. We'll keep you posted as soon as the servers are back up. Below are the full patch notes. One note in particular that we'd like to address is a fix we're implementing to greatly reduce latency in firing rocket/nail projectiles. To help illustrate the changes, we've included an image to show latency between Quake Live, CBT 11 (pre-6/27 patch), and CBT 12 (the 6/27 patch). We look forward to hearing your thoughts after the patch goes live with this change.

As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback once these changes go live. Thank you, all!"

Cypher interviewed about Quake Champions (106 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 20:35 CDT, 24 June 2017 - iMsg
"In 2006, aged only 16, Belarus Alexey "Cypher" Yanushevsky was signed by Fnatic. By that point, he was already one of the strongest Quake players out there — both the third and fourth instalment. Cypher continued to make a living playing quake until 2014. According to him, it was only in 2011, when the first International was announced, that Quake’s lagging behind other esports disciplines began to be felt.



Cypher spent the last year and a half playing Overwatch, but switched to Quake Champions when its beta was announced — and went on to win its very first online tournament. CyberSport.ru talked to Yanushevsky about his career in Overwatch, the Quake Champions meta, and the esports prospects of this new game."

Preview:

Is it fair to say Quake Champions has become too much of an arcade game?

Belarus Cypher: It became simpler by an order of magnitude. This is a game in which you can’t heal yourself back to full, the way you could in previous Quake instalments; you can’t stack up and just circle the map killing everyone. That’s why the game used to be one-sided; there would be the one guy who was killing everyone and having fun.

Here, it’s built a bit differently. You’ve got abilities you can use in a mass fight, and besides, a hero has a health cap that can’t be exceeded. No matter how many megahealths and armors you pick up, if you get hit from a railgun, the second hit will kill you, unless you’re some super-fat tank. And if you are a super-fat tank, you’re very easy to hit.

They’ve balanced the game with newcomers in mind. In Quake III, you respawn with a machine gun, 125 HP, and zero armor, and until you pick up a good gun and a more or less decent armor suit, you won’t be fragging anyone. Here, you can take down someone who’s full-HP with just that machine gun. You can’t be chased around spawn points. The abilities, the invisibility, the orbs, the teleports, it’s all about doing everything to prevent top-tier players from owning noobs, to stop noobs having 0/45 runs.

Quakecon 2016 Day 2: QuakeWorld 2on2 (62 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 01:12 CDT, 5 August 2016 - iMsg
The first time Quake 1 was uniquely featured in a tournament at QuakeCon was in 1996, when NetQuake was the premiere competitive mode. Only a year later a QuakeWorld 1on1 tournament took place at QuakeCon. This years ql white QuakeCon celebrates the 20th anniversary of Quake featuring a $25,000 QUAKEWORLD Intel QUAKEWORLD 2on2 Team Deathmatch Open.

QuakeWorld is one of the fastest FPS there exist. On this day the Quake scene looks at the QuakeWorld tourney at QuakeCon.
Andeh wrote on quakeworld.nu:
One of the biggest tournaments in QuakeWorld history is at our doorstep just waiting to start and it's time for a power rank! The 11 teams confirmed to participate shall all be ranked from top to bottom with no regards to region. $25'000 is up for grabs in this wonderful 20 year anniversary tournament and I'm sure every team would like a bite of that cake. In a LAN setting, anything can happen and dreams will undoubtedly be shattered in Texas. There are many teams that could be crowned champions in this tournament and each of the big teams have been practicing to reach the goal of becoming the 2016 QuakeCon Champions. This tournament will never be forgotten. One team will go down in history. One team will always be remembered as the team that won QuakeCon 2016. The 20 year anniversary. The most grand of them all. Let's get right into it...
More info about the 11 teams you can read in the article Quakecon 2016 Power Rank.
