I've been collecting these tricks for a little over a year now. Some of them may be already impossible due to patch changes, some may turn out to be impossible later on or maybe they will get easier instead, who knows!

Songs:
Jack of Bass feat. Maciej Markiewicz - Dreams of Steel
RTPN - Hippi

Special thanks to Mazu Finland for spending time with the tricks and helping out with freecam footage.

Legit Challenge to clawz for ~$5,000 USD (43 comments)
Posted by bagrat @ 01:59 CDT, 18 August 2018 - iMsg
Since no one else is speaking on this subject then I will. I have it on very reliable sources that Nikita "clawz" Marchinsky has outright cheated using aimhacks, and even audio and sound hacks, as well as also been given the benefit of fixed gameplay, fixed results/set-up matches, and players/teams throwing games in his favor at all his major event winnings. From what has been relayed to me and what I know and can see, I'm almost 100% sure these assertions are true, and I cant stand it. So Im issuing as much as a $5k+ Money Match challenge to him to dispel doubts to definitively prove me wrong and that he is in fact, Legitimate.

All he has to do is show up and do his thing. There will be measures in place to detect whether he is cheating or not, which all of the tournaments he has participated in have failed to do. His POV will also be recorded for the entire match for further analysation, which all of these tournaments have also failed to have done. Completely opposite of all major FPS tournaments since they're beginnings.


Rules:


1. Im laying him 3.5-1 odds that he wont be able to even beat me. This essentially means that I think he has less than a 25% (22~%) chance of even winning the match (cleanly...). The most I can (currently) offer is approximately ~5,000$ USD value


2. The match will be played in Quake 3: Arena in the Rocket Arena 3 mod, on the map Thunderstruck. The armor and health will both be set to 400hp, or 400H/400A. This is because the main purpose of the match is to thoroughly test out new cheat-prevention and cheat-detection measures that I've created that can be used on LAN play. His aiming and combat abilities should be the focus of the match and this will prevent alot of tunneling-strategies from being effective at hindering much of that, and the public can scrutinize everything that will happen. This format will prove to be best for that.


Nothing will be decided while the match is being played.

I am confident enough in these counter measures that he will be caught as-a-matter-of-fact, not just by some majority opinion, if he chooses to cheat. But a voting process may also occur as things go along

This is a fair warning. I basically expect him to either show up and not play nearly up to par as any of his event winnings and performances, or not even show up at all for some reason even though its a free $5,000~ USD value for him if he wants, and a trip to a popular city.

All money and prizes will be relinquished to a 3rd party prior to the match taking place, to ensure payout afterwards.


I will update more information about prizes, rules, location etc., as things develop

American genes prove to be superior (55 comments)
Posted by esdf @ 07:00 CDT, 12 August 2018 - iMsg
... Again!

Over and over again, the United States of America TeamLiquid duo, rapha and DaHang remind us of how superior the North American gene pool is compared to the one of continent that discovered them, Canada excluded.

In a very uninspiring and uninteresting best of 7, rapha and DaHang dispatched of young Belarus clawz and Sweden Toxjq. As in all Hollywood movies, Americans never fail to deliver when pitted against Soviets (and pretty much all Communists), even ex-ones like Clawz. It's safe to say that Toxjq was just a collateral damage of American patriotism this QuakeCon.

Until next year, stay great America!

Quakecon 2018 Interviews by 4sg.com.au (13 comments)
Posted by mickzerofive @ 03:43 CDT, 7 August 2018 - iMsg
Interview with Myztro's Hungary RAISY
How do you feel about the changes to the duel Tournament specifically giving only $25,000 to 1st
I prefer the way they handled last year's QuakeCon prizes. You can become 2nd and still win nothing. Very unsatisfying.

Interview with Quaker Orb's United States of America Effortless
Since the structure changed for the 2018 year of Quake events whereby teams were no longer flown over by the developers. It made it hard for a lot of teams to make international trips like they had hoped for. Can you tell me what was the feeling when you found out this would be the case for you to financially fund your team to travel to France and what was it like when the community outpour of love and support for you came to fruition?
We were kind of thrown off by this news, considering this was announced one month before Dreamhack Tours. yenOm and I had worked very hard leading up to the event, even before any tournaments were announced, and we felt a little blindsided from what we had come to expect for Quake tournaments. We were debating even attempting to go to DH Tours as we didn't think we could fund an international trip with one months notice.

Interview with Corvidae's Australia Steej
Now that you have played with Australia Dandaking for 6 months as a 2v2 team, what do you feel is your biggest strength as a duo?
We are always looking for angles to output damage no matter the situation; we have high pressure because of this. Despite improving our playstyle to reduce the damage we receive, it has not changed that much and feels like a nice balance.

Naturally, local servers with low-ping play are common too, but is there any sort of adjustment you need to make when shifting gear from remote to local play? Especially as you head to various tournaments and practise with various people?
Every time you travel to a different part of the world and play in queue against the people living there you can instantly notice the difference in regional playstyles. Being adaptable is the biggest skill any professional gamer can have, because you need to be able to adapt on the fly against opponents. At an international tournament you will be matched up against players from all different countries and regions who each have a different strategy and style which youll need to figure out to succeed. This is why you often find that certain players will be more effective against certain other styles of players, purely based off the stylistic match-up. So, I try to make my own style a mix of everything and have trained myself for many situations to be ready when I come up against something new. At least that's the hope!
