Division 3

Clan: Europe F*E*C* - Frag Emm Clan (the blue team)
Team leader: Belgium witte

viaIImaximus: Hello! Would you be so kind to introduce your team to us (who the players are, what their/your experience is in Quake and the HoQ league)?
witte: Hi! We're F*E*C - Frag Emm Clan (the blue team). A ragtag bunch of misfits : Notuern, Catagore, ReF, Xenogear, qdbp and toyrocket ; All under strict supervision by the 2 noobs in management position : Mogrot & witte (<-- that's me!). Mogrot,ReF,xeno and I have played in the previous season, the others are new recruits. Last time our team fell apart with the steam update and we had to scramble to get players together for a match. That didn't really work out. This time I think we're better prepared... fingers crossed :) We did have fun though and we even convinced some other FECcers to start a second team to play in the league.

viaIImaximus: Did you prepare for the HoQ CA Spring 2016 season? Did you practice?
witte: It's been kinda slow lately but we had a few practice sessions with LG, pRo and nubz. qdbp and toyrocket just joined last week, so we'll have to see how teamwork plays out, but I'm pretty sure we'll be ready.

viaIImaximus: What do you think of the map pool?
witte: The Rocket Arena maps were a bit of a surprise, especially map20 (never played it before :D), but I like all the maps in there, should be fun. Good thing they removed Almost Lost imo, but I do like servitude, sad to see that one go.

viaIImaximus: Your first opponent is the Loaded/Gunz. What do you think of them? Who do you think has a better chance of winning?
witte: We've been training with them for a while now, they're always up for a fight. Nice bunch of people.
I almost feel sad we have to slaughter them... almost :)
viaIImaximus: Now that the groups have been released, who do you think the favorite is in your division?
witte: Well, I expect half of our division to just chicken out and quit the tournament, now that they know they have to face us. The rest of em just don't know what they've got themselves into... F*E*C ftw ofcourse.

viaIImaximus: What are your team's ambitions for this tournament?
witte: World domination + Victoria's Secret models for all teammembers (I'll sacrifice myself to entertain the ones that got stuck with the F*E*C-members with wives/gf's). Or at least use this tourney as a stepping stone towards our goal.
P.S. : i get first pick (duh)
P.P.S. : Adriana

viaIImaximus: Anything else that you would like to add i.e. shoutouts?
witte: All praise and worship our one and only Allmighty Lord and Master dcmattic, the clanleader of F.E.C
Mighty greetings to all the other FECcers who (I hope) will be rooting for us *waves like a 4yo*

viaIImaximus: Thank you for your time and good luck in the tournament!



Clan: Europe Because life is izi...
Team Leader: Netherlands PaasHaas

viaIImaximus: Hello! Would you be so kind to introduce your team to us (who the players are, what their/your experience is in Quake and the HoQ league)?
PaasHaas: Well, that's kind of hard because we are with so many but Ill give it a try x

viaIImaximus: Yeah sure. No problem :)
PaasHaas: Our clan is mainly for fun. We have high age average but we became friends. We share our lives on FB so we r quite close :) I'm the initiater and im 48 live in the nl. We have some players from europe and Bleckdog is the oldest with 56 :P We got more popular since we got us a dedic server and everyday ppl still wanna join. atm we have a stop because we r allready with 17 members. All about the same skill rate except ApeDog. Basically, we r all naabs :)
Squadleaders for this hoq : WhoAmIReally from france / and Mike from Sweden. Of course, I will supervise it all :) That's basically it... too many to name all i guess :)

viaIImaximus: Did you prepare for the HoQ CA Spring 2016 season? Did you practice?
PaasHaas: Well... we try to but without any success :) We had Tuesday's as our practise night which we started about a month ago..... but when we r on a server, it looks more like a gay orgy than real practice.

viaIImaximus: haha :D
PaasHaas: So no...we didnt practise that much in the end :P

viaIImaximus: Well we will see about that.. won't we :P What do you think of the map pool?
PaasHaas: Well ... That's a hard one :) Most people I know in izi want the basic maps... but for me it's different. But that's a personal preference. I recently installed a server with 170 workshops or smth, and for me weird maps make qlive more fun than the basic stuff. So i don't care. Personally ... I'm glad they added ra20.

viaIImaximus: It makes room for different playstyles.
PaasHaas: Not only playstyle but more fun as well....

viaIImaxmius: True.
PaasHaas: But you know...loads of people whining that they have 220 fps instead of 250 etc etc. all pro whiners :P People should play more for fun :(

viaIImaximus: Of course. Everyone has their own preference.
PaasHaas: Indeed, no hard feelings to pro whiners :P

viaIImaximus: Your first opponents are F.E.C. and 2 Steps to Hell. What do you think of them? Who do you think will win?
PaasHaas: I only know some ppl from FEC ... they are cool guys ... Steps to hell lemme check. Ah only know 1 of them as a regular on our server :) Ofcourse we will lose ... we r just there for funz :) But we have an A and a B squad wich u can't see at the moment on the website unfortunaly. In team A we have more serious people. Mike Jayson Grandboluz Smitty Lake Ape. They will play to win.

viaIImaximus: So they are more serious about it?
PaasHaas: Yeah team A might even win some matches :) In team B we have Who Tech Kinkz Birri Bleck and me ....seriously...we dont give a shit :)

viaIImaximus: haha :D What happens when izi A plays izi B? xD
PaasHaas: Team B is doomed :P A vs B. That match will take 3 days, before everyone is ready and done fapping on voice comms. But A will win ....

viaIImaximus: Now that the groups have been released, who do you think the favorite is in your division?
PaasHaas: izi B of course :P haha LG 2sth I think.

viaIImaximus: Have you ever played them before?
PaasHaas: Last hoq.

viaIImaximus: Aha, yes?
PaasHaas: We were 1 squad. We lost 1 match we shouldn't have lost .... we would have ended second in div 3 if we would have won that. So maybe there's a little chance for izi A. Not with B, we have paas :(

viaIImaximus: You'll do great. I'm sure xD
PaasHaas: All fun :P

viaIImaximus:. What are your team's ambitions for this tournament?
PaasHaas: lol

viaIImaximus: I ask the right questions ah xD
PaasHaas: For A to move 1 div up for next hoq ....for B to get last :P

viaIImaximus: haha :D it can't be that bad? xD
PaasHaas: Ah well...who cares :)

viaIImaximus: True :P
PaasHaas: elo 900 :P

viaIImaximus: It's time to have fun anyway.
PaasHaas: Nah 1500 or smth :P

viaIImaximus: Anything else that you would like to add i.e. shoutouts?
PaasHaas: xx
PaasHaas: Hmm... yeah. A few things :P
PaasHaas: 1. HoQ admins are doing great... I'm thankfull for their effort .... those people keep the scene alive ... 2. People should really play more for fun !!!!! 3. Next year even weirder maps imo. 4. 3 divs is too much ...why not some sort of league like football ...but that's my personal opinion :P

viaIImaximus: What do you mean?
PaasHaas: Well... there are 7 rounds now. I think they could make 2 divs with more matches.

viaIImaximus: Do you think the skill gap would be to great then?
PaasHaas: Ah not in 2 divs....and then ...if theres a skill gap.. so be it... Losers like us just know we suck :) But oke ....all personal opinions of course.

viaIImaximus: Do you think that people take games too seriously sometimes and then lose interest in that game? Like Quake Live?
PaasHaas: Yes.....we have smth going on like this atm.... I wont go in detail to that...but it happens :(

viaIImaximus: I see :l
PaasHaas: Ah well, part of the deal :) but for us, correction, for me.... most important is our very good and fun contact through facebook we have. Keeps the clan alive and toghether.

viaIImaximus: Yep friendships first!
PaasHaas: Yess!

viaIImaximus: Do you get together outside quake live?
PaasHaas: haha :) we have 2 from swe , 1 polak , 2 germans , 2 italians, 1 french, rest dutch ...but we luv eachother :P

viaIImaximus: Thank you for your time and good luck in the tournament!



Clan: Poland Dretwe Lamy
Team leader: Poland Insane_pl

viaIImaximus: Hello! Would you be so kind to introduce your team to us (who the players are, what their/your experience is in Quake and the HoQ league)?
Insane_pl: Our team was created by Vanity our clan leader and mentor. Numb Lamas never give up and never be defeated by no fighting, and no trying to win. For now me and Harry_Z_Tybetu are the clan captains and we have same reason to kick somebody or invite someone to our team. We had started the Hoq league in tdm mode before and we are rather focused to tdm playing.The clan arena is only for a try and this our new adventure in Hoq.

viaIImaximus: Did you prepare for the HoQ CA Spring 2016 season? Did you practice?
Insane_pl: We arent preparing hard so we want to play for fun and try to not look bad in matches and if its possible we want to be in top 3 in our division.

viaIImaximus: What do you think of the map pool?
Insane_pl: Map pool is great this new added maps will be very awesome to play im thinking about this maps from rocket arena my mates remember the old times when q3 was very popular and rocket arena to.

viaIImaximus: Your first opponent is Frag Emm Clan. What do you think of them? Who do you think has a better chance of winning?
Insane_pl: I had never seen this guys on the server maybe we have a chance to win but we need to be focused and be prepere to close fighting with them and me and my team wish them good luck.

viaIImaximus: Now that the groups have been released, who do you think the favorite is in your division?
Insane_pl: I'm really suprised in good way of so much teams decided to play in our group i know only LG clan.

viaIImaximus: What are your team's ambitions for this tournament?
Insane_pl: As I mentioned in first point we want to show our team in more not only polish scene and trying to get good experiences for next sezon.

viaIImaximus: Anything else that you would like to add i.e. shoutouts?
Insane_pl: Thank you viaIImaximus for asking about my team. We need to have a little bit luck and we can be the black horse in this sezon. For now we are almost complete the squad as in tdm and in ca. Wish my team good ping no lag and have fun.

viaIImaximus: Thank you for your time and good luck in the tournament!



Clan: Italy 2 Steps to Hell
Team leaders: Italy miki86 & Italy f4bolik

viaIImaximus: Hello! Would you be so kind to introduce your team to us (who the players are, what their/your experience is in Quake and the HoQ league)?
f4bolik: Hello ! It's nice to be here, thanks for asking! we're the 2 Steps to Hell Clan, it's a quite old clan, steels (aka miki86) created it several years ago (2010), and the clan always played CA tournaments. During those years we changed a lot of players, u know, someone new joined quake and someone left, now the lineup is steels, f4bolik, crismao, buddy, iPQu, Roasty. We had in our clan good players such as Gsd555 and Masterx22 but they're not much active anymore. Probably is the reason why we're in third division now and nomore in second. I, f4bolik, started to play quakelive 2 years ago, and I think i improved a lot. We had some partecipations to hoq but we didn't a good job, we had to forfait a lot of matched in the last tournaments, so probably is another reason 'cause they put us in third division.

viaIImaximus: Did you prepare for the HoQ CA Spring 2016 season? Did you practice?
f4bolik: Yes, we're preparing for the next hoq, we're practicing a lot, playin at least 3/4 times a week, doing some pcw, tacticals trainings, etc.

viaIImaximus: What do you think of the map pool?
f4bolik: Mappool is fine, we miss a good map such as campgrounds, but we think that picking again some old ra-maps is a good thing, but they're played a bit randomly like campgrounds, so much didnt change. I mean, the regroup zone and the start.

viaIImaximus: Your first opponent is Because life is izi.... What do you think of them? Who do you think has a better chance of winning?
f4bolik: About IZI... we know them, we played a lot of time on their servers, we respect them, but if we focus on the match, we're gonna win ( i hope =)))

viaIImaximus: Now that the groups have been released, who do you think the favorite is in your division?
f4bolik: I think LG clan and 2StH are the favourites for third division.

viaIImaximus: What are your team's ambitions for this tournament?
f4bolik: i hope we can really win this division and proof our growing in teamplay. Too many times people said us we're good players but we're not able to play together yet. So, i hope we'll make some steps in this sense.

viaIImaximus: Anything else that you would like to add i.e. shoutouts?
f4bolik: Well.. we're 2 steps to hell, but we won't give up! Follow us!

viaIImaximus: Thank you for your time and good luck in the tournament!



Clan: Europe F.E.C - Frag Emm Clan (red team)
Team leader: Netherlands MooMin

viaIImaximus: Hello! Would you be so kind to introduce your team to us (who the players are, what their/your experience is in Quake and the HoQ league)?
MooMin: Well,.. We're part of the FEC clan... who would've guessed :) We are the 2nd team from our clan and personally(moomin) i only joined the clan recently. So i asked my teammates to write something about themselves. Only Roi and Skills filled them in so the rest of those stupid minions are slackers. Basicly, we all have years of experience of playing quake. However, only 1 of us has played HOQ before.

viaIImaximus: Did you prepare for the HoQ CA Spring 2016 season? Did you practice?
MooMin: Since we kinda rushed together we didnt have much time for practice. However we did ask our first team to show us some positions etc. Plus we ofcourse intend to bring our own never-seen-before tactics.

viaIImaximus: What do you think of the map pool?
MooMin: We like the mappool. We just think the RA3 maps are a bit too gloomy.

viaIImaximus: Your first opponent is Loaded/Gunz. What do you think of them? Who do you think has a better chance of winning?
MooMin: Well we've seen some of the players of their clan in public games. We think we stand a fair chance against them. But who knows.

viaIImaximus: Now that the groups have been released, who do you think the favorite is in your division?
MooMin: Honestly, we have no clue. We're rooting for Blue Fec because they're part of our clan ofcourse. Other than that ,.. no real ideas about that.

viaIImaximus: What are your team's ambitions for this tournament?
MooMin: For me, the team captain,.. my ambition is to see our team come together this tournament and that they'll be willing to play the next and the next etc. However everybody in the team wants to bring home the gold and destroy our competition ofcourse :)

viaIImaximus: Anything else that you would like to add i.e. shoutouts?
MooMin: Let me just say this :
As E=hf=hc, blue light - with a smaller wavelength - should have a higher energy. However, it is the case that blue light scatters the most. RED RULES!

viaIImaximus: Thank you for your time and good luck in the tournament!
