Since I'm a huge fan of A journey? and I've not seen it mentioned here on ESR yet I want you to know that a new movie by New Zealand MrHollyDriv3r is up. So turn off that shitty Netflix movie you just got into and watch this instead. Fast runs, sick maps and good tunes. This is how its done...

This is a Reflex frag movie that I, United States of America Koala, created. Features frags by me and United States of America Komier. We've been playing Reflex together for over a year now and have gotten some pretty cool frags along the way.

The song is Earth, Wind & Fire - September (Zanski Remix)

Zulua (dRone) and Extatiq (Bethesda CM) itws @ESWC2017 (9 comments)
Posted by Infuscomus @ 08:24 CST, 13 November 2017 - iMsg
On the very last day of the Quake Champions tournament of the ESWC 2017, Friday the 3rd of November, I had the opportunity to talk with three players but also to ask some questions to two other major personalities of the ESWC QC tournament : France Axel "Zulua" Acquarone and France Louis "Extatiq" Evrard.

Zulua was the official commentator for the ESWC 2017 Quake Champions competition. He is a veteran of the Quake franchise and most of you who played TDM in Quake Live have probably met him in the pickup channel under the nickname of dRone. I wanted to ask him about his background as a player, what he thinks of Quake Champions' gameplay, his new role as a commentator, etc.

The video can be found here : YouTube


Extatiq works for Bethesda France as a Community Manager. He was in charge of the whole competition and stayed around the whole time to talk with people, see how the QC booth was going, etc. The interview is quite short and I had troubles with the microphone (that's why I used written questions in the video), and there were definitely questions I knew I couldn't ask like why there was no English coverage for the event and so on because he wouldn't be "authorized" to explain the reasons behind that publicly for instance. Anyway, I only asked him simple questions about the ESWC 2017 event in particular, what he felt about it, if it was a success in his opinion, and if Bethesda already had plans about next year for European / French competitions.

The video can be found here : YouTube

My other itws from this event : Poland Phaze, Sweden Spart1e, France Nykho

If you feel it's worth it, do not hesitate to follow EsportActu on twitter, facebook even if it's in French because content is sometimes international, and you might follow me on twitter too because I mostly tweet in English when covering events when given the occasion (@Infuscomus).

Patch Notes - Early Access Update - 9.11.17 (51 comments)
Posted by Yakumo @ 09:31 CST, 9 November 2017 - iMsg
We've now finished deploying an update for Quake Champions and addressed the following issues:
‘Netcode’ / Performance

- Fix for random miss-hits for players that have a big difference in fps
- Further bandwidth optimization – reduced client upload data
- Fixed spikes on warmup that caused champions jittering (this is something we strive to improve atm)


- Adjusted DOOM Slayer & B.J. Blazkowicz’s hitboxes so they should take damage on shots fired between their legs
- Fixed issue when correct ping was showed only to current player
- Fixed issue when B.J. Blazkowicz’s guns could misfire while in active ability
- Fixed issue when Clutch shield not blocking properly
- Fixed issue when enemy’s markers persisted on the death screen
- Fixed issue with tutorial videos not playing
- Fixed issue when the power-up effects would appear in the level away from the power-up spawn location

- ‘Terror-Billy’ skin clipping issues improved
