Interview with Rapha: Not retiring (128 comments)
Posted by Slasher @ 14:32 CDT, 6 August 2013 - iMsg
American Quake Champion United States of America Shane "Rapha" Hendrixson from SK Gaming won the Quake Live 1v1 QuakeCon 2013 Championships and $9,000 in a thrilling five game final over Russian favorite Russia Sergey "Evil" Orekhov.

Hendrixson speaks to GameSpot on winning his third QuakeCon title, now nearly a dozen major Quake Live titles. He says he will not stop competing.

"I think I'll just look at it like 'hey, if I have the time to go play in a big tournament and can prepare for it, I will,'" he says, as DreamHack's 2013 Winter event looms in the distance with $15,000 in prize money. “"So I won't say that I'll 'retire'. I’'m going to always leave the door open. I've accomplished quite a bit in Quake, and to me I don't really look at it like 'okay, I've finally won this now I'm good.' I've always tried to take it one tournament at a time and I'm always looking to win and do more and I think it'll always be that way. If you don't look at it that way it's so difficult to win against someone who really wants it more than you.

Winning a third title now does mean a lot to me considering that John [ZeRo4] is my friend, someone I looked up to as a player for a long time and was the one who helped give me the little push I needed to start being able to win," Hendrixson said. "So to have that same accomplishment as him is nice to have. As with Cypher almost every tourney we go to I want him to do very well also and we have a good friendly rivalry, neither of us gets bitter when losing to the other and now that I have three like him, the race is on to see who can get four.

QuakeCon 2013 Schedule & Groups (679 comments)
Posted by roychez @ 02:56 CDT, 1 August 2013 - iMsg
This year's QuakeCon features tournaments in Quake Live and Doom 2. On Thursday the Quake Live Intel Duel Masters and 20th Anniversary DOOM Challenge will kill off, while on Friday the Quake Live Clan Arena 3v3 Open will mostly take place.

The Duel Masters this year will feature a slightly different format than usually. The 32 players are divided over eight groups. But instead like the normal format, the top players are in one group, and will fight for the top four seeds, and so on, giving interesting matches straight from the bat. All players move on from the groups, which are to determine seeds, to the Double Elimination bracket.

The stream will be on QuakeCon on Twitch TV, with commentary by United Kingdom Xavier "Zoot" Dhorne and United Kingdom Daniel "ddk" Kapadia, and production by FACEIT.
