DuelMania WorldWide 1on1 tournament (6 comments)
Posted by Åke Vader @ 11:35 CDT, 29 July 2015 - iMsg
Some time ago the next edition of DuelMania was announced. This time it comes with a bit of a twist as it bears the name DuelMania WorldWide, an online QuakeWorld duel tournament that aims to gather the best duel players around the globe for one final showdown. The tournament will take advantage of the project that has been going on for around 18 months, initiated by Australia Dirtbox and Portugal Mushi, with the goal of getting key servers in strategic servers in place to make matches on fair ping between contestants from different continents possible. So far there are players from Europe, North-America and all the way down to South America signed up.

The tournament will be played on the classic maps DM2, DM4, DM6, ZTNDM3 and Aerowalk. The major differences compared to previous incarnations of DuelMania is the server selection procedure and for a complete statement on that, please refer to the official Duelmania website.

Head on over to Duelmania website and sign up!

The biggest LAN party in America and certainly one of the most important qlQuake Live events of 2015 is slowly but surely coming to an end. We had a chance to witness an extraordinary display of skill in Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag, but now it's time to bring out the big guns and finish the Tri-Master Tournament in spectacular fashion. Each team will pick their duel candidates, brackets and seeds will be updated accordingly.

DUEL Brackets

All VODs from the stream are online. If you want to watch a specific VOD there is this neat list you can use. Watch the grand final if you missed it! (twitch Long, Parts). All Demos from all played games are also available (quakeconcdn), but we need to wait for a updated wolfcam version (Update: protocol 91 support is live). Tournament pictures you should see (day1, day2).

Watch Quakecon at Meltdown Bar in London (103 comments)
Posted by takesix @ 19:19 CDT, 20 July 2015 - iMsg
As stated in this thread South Africa fnx had a talk with the manager of the Meltdown gaming pub in London and it seems that we've been blessed with a place to watch Quakecon together.

The place is pretty nice (I visited it as well) and it's relatively close to King's Cross station. Since we still don't know the exact tournament schedule it is hard to arrange a time to meet up. The pub opens at 5 and knowing NA's timezone I'd assume the games will be already rolling at 5 BST. So the earlier, the better.

Keep in mind that if we manage to gather a decent amount of people we could draw the attention of the pub to the arena shooter scene, and therefore hopefully getting a venue for some other events.

Post somewhere if you think you will come, cheers.

Team Name: Hype Train (Br1ck, Fear, Avenged, Effortless)

First we have our High D, Br1ck. He's been through a lot this year and deserves this epic combination of players. He's particularly well known for this terrible aim and inconsistent play.

Next we have one of our Offensive players, Fear. He wanted to give a personal statement of his thoughts about Quakecon, so here it is. "DICKS DICKS DICKS DICKS DICKS." He provides some of the best input for our team and is the team analyst.

For our second Offensive player we have Avenged. Avenged is known to go out to brewerys every weekend and hangout with his wife. He occasionally gets on Quakelive to play a game, but rarely plays with his team.

And for our last (and best) player we have Effortless. He's the main Flag D. He has zero accomplishments when it comes to Quake, but won the 10k raffle last year at the 2014 Quakecon. He officially won more money than Cypher. Therefore Effortless> Cypher.

We have high hopes to win money at Quakecon, as long as it involves raffles. Effortless has won 100% of the Quakecon raffles he's entered, so we expect that again this year.

Please come watch our streams and enjoy the entertainment that is involved!

'Reflections' with Cypher (101 comments)
Posted by Thorin @ 05:47 CDT, 8 July 2015 - iMsg
In the 64th episode of my "Reflections" series I interviewed Belarus Alexei "Cypher" Yanushevsky, legendary Quake III and QuakeLive champion.

Cypher answers in Russian, to allow him to go into detail, and the video is fully subtitled into English. This interview was conducted in 2014 and covers his career, playing style and famous opponents he battled.
