QuakeCon 2019 - Final Day (164 comments)
Posted by diegowar @ 05:42 CDT, 28 July 2019 - iMsg
Day 3, the last day of the round robin, was once again super tense.

As time went on, all eyes turned to Russia Cooller and Germany K1llsen, to see if they would be able to do it, and keep their top 2 placings.

After losing to Ukraine Xron in round 16, Germany K1llsen couldn't afford any more match losses, and the suspense kept rising up until the very last minute of the very last map of the very last match against Canada Cha1n.

But there was also some confusion, a lot of people didn't know how the players were ranked in the round robin, and I think there are still people who don't know. So here is how it works. It was a point system, where you got:

2.25 points for a 2-0 win
2 points for a 2-1 win
1 point for a 1-2 loss
0 point for a 0-2 loss

It was definitely a very tight fight for that n°2 spot. In the final rankings, Germany K1llsen has 37 points, United States of America Rapha is just behind at 36.5 points, and Hungary Raisy has 36.25 points.

But let's not forget about the real man of the day, Russia Cooller. He scored an impressive 38.5 points, out of a maximum 42.75 possible!, simply amazing from the man who already reached the QuakeCon Final in 2006 and 2010. Is the third time going to be the charm?

Only time will tell, but we will first be treated to a series of prize matches with casters. They promise to be close and entertaining. See liquipedia.net/quake for more details. Prizes will probably be announced during the broadcast.

The show starts at 08:00 CDT on twitch.tv/quake (Grand Final at 15:00 CDT).

QuakeCon 2019 - Standings after the first 2 days (138 comments)
Posted by diegowar @ 05:32 CDT, 27 July 2019 - iMsg
Day 2 of the 2019 QuakeCon Duel Tournament saw a little bit of chaos, with freezes, some maps had to be restarted, servers had to be reboot ... but out of it still came an incredible day full of tense matches, upsets, comebacks, etc ...

This possibility of showing all matches from all POVs has only just arrived, that it will already be sorely missed if it's absent from future tournaments.

What contributes to the excitement, is of course the format. A round robin with 10 matches happening at the same time, and all of them being of great importance. They are what determine what your ranking in the tournament will be, give or take 1 place, as Sunday matches will not be a bracket, but prize matches.

Unlike normal group stages, players here can't afford to lose matches and hope to peak later, they need to be at 100% all the time. And the tension is palpable.

After two long days, and a total of 13 matches played for each player, the standings are:


What becomes apparent from these standings, is that unless things go wrong, six players will be battling for the well coveted top 2 spots of the round robin, giving access to the Grand Final and a shot at being the QuakeCon 2019 champion :

Russia Cooller will be playing against Xron, Nosfa, Whaz, Cha1n, Br1ck and Dramis
Ukraine Xron will be playing against Cooller, Av3k, K1llsen, Dahang, Spart1e and Vengeur
Germany K1llsen will be playing against Base, Garpy, Xron, Nosfa, Whaz and Cha1n
United States of America Rapha will be playing against Nosfa, Whaz, Cha1n, Br1ck, Dramis, Effortless
Italy Vengeur will be playing against Raisy, Toxjq, Psygib, Base, Garpy and Xron
Hungary Raisy will be playing against Vengeur, Sib, Toxjq, Psygib, Base and Garpy

We can predict that United States of America Rapha will be a heavy favorite for all his matches, but he stands 1 win behind Cooller/Xron/K1llsen, so he must hope that at least two of them will lose one match. It is a guarantee that at least 1 of them will lose a match, as Cooller and Xron will face off, as well as K1llsen and Xron. It also means that Cooller, Xron and K1llsen have their fate in their hands, each of them can try to win all their matches and will be guaranteed to reach the final.

Other than Russia Cooller vs Ukraine Xron (10:00 CDT) and Germany K1llsen vs Ukraine Xron (13:00 CDT), another match to look forward to is Hungary Raisy vs Italy Vengeur (10:00 CDT), who right off the bat will face off to determine which of them will stay on track and keep their chances to reach the top 2. There are many more matches that will be interesting, too many to mention them all.

Be sure to refer to the following sites to decide on what to watch.

Played a couple of games with Major on Nightmare, as usual trying to win by 40 frags difference for fun, and because I hit a couple mid-airs, I decided to go through the demos and try to make something with that, just to see what it would look like. Well here it is.

How bad is it ?

This is a speed-run of Quake 3 Arena single player in Nightmare difficulty.

I made a small intro which looked silly on paper and looks even stupider now. But I decided to leave it :)

Youtube link

This is the last run I will ever make of this game, it took way too much time and effort, and I'm not even satisfied with the results.

Also : Don't expect pro-player aim here, I'm just a random guy. But this is the world record as far as I know.
