A Documentary of DreamHack - Trailer (42 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 03:09 CST, 14 December 2011 - iMsg
United Kingdom Fade went to DreamHack Winter 2011 with a few different things in mind. He of course wanted to play for a bit but also he wanted to make a documentary about DreamHack. As he wrote in this thread about a week before the event started he will be doing interviews with all the involved with Quake Live at DreamHack: players, streamers, staff and fans.

But as he said himself: "I want to show you guys who are not at LAN or have ever been to one, whats it's like there and what goes on at theses events."

Last night he released a trailer! Make sure to check it out and also catch the real deal when it's out in January 2012.

DHW Demos OUT! (107 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 14:55 CST, 29 November 2011 - iMsg
After a very successful DreamHack Winter 2011, at least from my point of view, with so much awesome quake action and very good coverage thanks to the very hard work from the Level Up TV crew with United Kingdom Disrepute and United Kingdom nVc doing most of the casting and keeping you guys updated.

With this being said, the demos are now on the web! All demos (well, most...), both TDM and Duel can be found
on Trance's FTP.

An alternative mirror will be added soon enough!

Update: During the event when the LAN server broke down (hardware failure), we managed to get our server-guy together with id Software to debug the Swedish Quake Live servers and they sorted out the lag issues that have been occurring on the servers.

Update2: We now have an alternative (French) host with demos sorted. Demos links were added on the DHW11 coverage post for all matches.

Update3: Dreamhack.se host live (with .rar)

derQuaker Interview: Level Up TV (30 comments)
Posted by erzwo @ 02:31 CST, 24 November 2011 - iMsg
Shortly before leaving for Sweden, Germany moppz from derQuaker interviewed United Kingdom Disrepute and United Kingdom nVc from Level Up TV about DreamHack Winter 2011 and their streaming business.

Here is a small snippet:
moppz: "How do split your work at Level Up? Nvc ist the guy with knowledge and disrepute is the guy that gets all the girls?"

nVc: "That’s a suprisingly difficult question for all the wrong reasons. We are only as active as the game we cover, and unfortunately Quake Live hasn’t been (and isn’t) in the greatest shape."

Disrepute: "It is split pretty equally. I do all the online streams and nvc does a perfectly equal amount of nothing. So it is a pretty good balance. Sometimes nvc does a little more nothing than I do something and he rightly tells me off for this. Trance then comes in and calms the kids down, and we live happily ever after. Then I get all the girls xxxxxxxxx"

Be sure to check out the full interview on derQuaker.

DHW: Schedule and TDM Groups Updated! (88 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 17:58 CST, 23 November 2011 - iMsg
With less than 1 day left before the DreamHack Winter 2011 Quake Live tournaments start we unfortunately had no choice but to remake the schedule and groups based on circumstances we couldn't ignore.

One team dropped out of the TDM tournament: Sweden nEuCtion. Portugal Insan3 couldn't make it to DreamHack either because of the Portuguese air companies went out on a strike today. Which leaves Australia / Portugal Aus Portugal with 3 players, but I'm crossing my fingers for that they sort it out when getting here. Our plan is that Netherlands draven can take his place, but unfortunately I haven't been able to get in contact with him to confirm.

With that being said we're going to delay the start of the TDM tournament with a few hours, note that we also changed the order the groups will play in. This will also allow us to free up some time to cover even more duel games!


With the dropout of Sweden nEuCtion we had to redo group B since it left Europe Kittylovers alone in their group. We swapped out Italy Senzabraccia to group B.


There's also a fancy site with brackets for all DreamHack tournaments, including Quake Live. Don't forget to check out DreamHack@Binarybeast.

Player names if not mentioned completely will be stated by their nickname. A complete list of references is found at the end of the article.

DHW: TDM Seeds, Groups and schedule! (144 comments)
Posted by blaze @ 12:30 CST, 21 November 2011 - iMsg
With DreamHack Winter 2011 just around the corner it's time to wrap all the infos and get it out there. There's been some switching around with line ups and unfortunate drop outs but we've managed to sort it out nicely so far.

Belarus Amai was unable to go because of visa issues. Since he qualified through the second ZOTAC qualifier it's natural for us to pick the follow up from the same qualifier: Germany twister. A few members of Russia deliberate murder had trouble on going as well, but their captain Russia cooke still managed to get a hold of a few other players. Check their updated line up below.

If the amount of teams change drastically before the event we will redo the seedings and groups.

Level Up TV at DreamHack Winter 2011 (93 comments)
Posted by Trance @ 15:12 CST, 18 November 2011 - iMsg
Once again we are pleased to announce that Level Up TV will be present, on site, this year during DreamHack Winter (24-27 November) to provide official coverage for the Quake Live duel and TDM tournaments.

This is our 5th consecutive DreamHack event after having covered the Winter 2009, Summer 2010, Winter 2010 and Summer 2011 events, therefore we aim to bring you, as always, the best possible coverage.

Poland Ziggy "nVc" Orzeszek and United Kingdom Stuart "Disrepute" Evans will be your dedicated casters for the tournaments. We will try to pair them with various pros as much as we can, and of course United Kingdom James "2GD" Harding might also be jumping on stream whenever he’s available.
On top of that we’d like to welcome our latest addition France Antoine "sharpe" Goeuriot who will be on site with our crew, working on highlights of the day, interviews and much more. You can enjoy his short hype video for our coverage below:


The setup will be pretty much the same as the one used during DreamHack Summer 2011, so be sure to expect a free 60 fps, 720p stream for your viewing pleasure. Twitch.TV is the streaming platform that will be used.

Lastly, we would also like to take this opportunity to announce our new website being launched today. This project has been in the works for quite some time and we’re happy to finally be able to release it. We will be adding content and updates to it as we go along, so we hope you will all enjoy it.

Important Note!
Any streaming organizations that are interested to cover this event in any language other than English, please contact: trance@dreamhack.se
