2nd December of 1999 marks the date when Quake 3 Quake III Arena was released. It used the id Tech 3 engine, a competitor to the Unreal engine, both widely licensed, renown and still used to this very day. The game has since become a cult classic, the rise of Quake III Arena marks an important history of esports. The game has received overwhelming strong positive reviews on Metacritic and Gamerankings, giving the Dreamcast version a rating of 93/100 and the PS2 Version 84/100. The PC version scored 89/100.

It was the first part in the quake series that distanced itself from the single-player story driven predecessors. With the huge success from older titles, idsoftware id software decided to put more emphasis on multi-player, channeling all their focus on fluidity, net-code, and online functions. There is an offline campaign available which let's players climb their ranks and defeating PC controlled opponents. Atmosphere resembles the old quakes, including Gothic and Lovecraftian themes with a few new tricks up it's sleeve such as cyber-gothic areas and futuristic level designs.



Although lore was never a big part of the game, it attracted plenty fan-fiction writers and cosplayers. It was ported to PlayStation 2, Dreamcast and Xbox live.

Quake III Arena and its respective mods are still relatively active, have communities and are generally accepted as one of the most remarkable games ever made with an enormous community that shook the world. One may argue that it is the last great thing done by the core id software team, with big names still actively involved in the development.

"Welcome to the Arena, where high-ranking warriors are transformed into spineless mush. Abandoning every ounce of common sense and any trace of doubt, you lunge onto a stage of harrowing landscapes and veiled abysses. Your new environment rejects you with lava pits and atmospheric hazards as legions of foes surround you, testing the gut reaction that brought you here in the first place. Your new mantra: Fight or be finished."

Dfruns-xajA pre-DFWC cup organized by defrag.ru was held early November. However, it was a very interesting DeFRaG competiton on a total of 5 maps, all made by Russia [fps]zapadlo. Here are the winning demos of this competition compiled into a movie produced by Shaolin Productions by moviemaker Czech Republic th0ca. The movie features some of the best players in the DeFRaG community, in both CPM and VQ3 physics. VQ3 winning times performed by: Ukraine Strangeland, Poland yotoon!, Russia kiccel, Hungary KeT and China xas, also in CPM with completely no-chance-given: United States of America nebuLa.

Everything made in high quality resolution 1080p and 30fps, with an energic soundtrack in a drum and bass rhythm. Hope you'll enjoy this video. For further information about upcoming projects check out our YouTube channel or irc #shaolinproductions @ Quakenet.

After rendering the movie I did find out some vq3 players used different models in their demos in comparison to what I used in the movie. I do apologize for the lack of continuity.

I'm planning to make a movie based on the Aerodynamics series, so if anybody has any skilled CPM freestyle demos or freestyle runs on DM maps, I'll be more than happy to receive any ideas on our IRC channel #shaolinproductions @ Quakenet.

Funk Station is my fourth QUAKE LIVE movie and third starring myself. All fragged players are part of European Space CTF player base and most of them are regulars who share similar passion with me for stealing flags at that map.

This movie is also recorded in 4K resolution with custom textures and weapon effects. All frags/actions are done this year in ranked games in progress. For those who want more, there is unlisted “Deleted scenes and funny moments” video link in YouTube description.

Thanks to clan mates and all participating players for tons of fun. Special thanks to Somalia Legless for certain fx tweaks. Regards, Croatia NastyTime.

N.A. QuakeLive Duel Cup - December 2014 (49 comments)

Schedule: Passed

It is my pleasure to present the December 2014 NA.DuelCup. The double elimination format is here to stay, but there is a slight change this month. The "drop-drop" map selection process is considered a standard these days, but during the month of December players will select maps using "Pick-Pick" instead. I hope this will encourage players with severe map-phobia to sign-up. Don't try and hide I see you spectating!

Donations towards current or future prize pools are always welcome. My paypal email is duel.cup@gmail.com.

A new Doom 2 world record has been set, the second improvement in the last 10 years. Author Zero-Master claims that the time can still be improved and that the speed runners are actively pursuing that goal - breaking the 23 minute mark. Current record improved the time by whooping 22 seconds.
