Lots of money on the table? (17 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 00:14 CDT, 5 September 2016 - iMsg
So today a Korean team with 150+ ping took down some weaker NA teams and took 1st in a weekend tourney. They coordinated very well of course and used some strategic intelligent play that was very refreshing to watch honestly. I assume their whole families will be put to death if they lost but even so I was impressed with the way the were prepared.

Anyway, tonight at 12:30 am est I'm on twitch and I see about 1/3 the streams are Asian. So to me, it looks like OW has been accepted by the east which could be huge as far as money making potential for our old Quake pros. To my knowledge, asians have never really embraced an FPS.

So this makes me excited for our pros and I hope more of them join some teams. There seems to be a major lack of talent right now in OW and the game appears to have a chance to blow up worldwide for a while.

Could be a good chance for Quakers to win money, get their names out there, and then bring some popularity to Quake Champions when it comes out.

Anyone else agree?

The state of Quake? (61 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 01:50 CST, 20 January 2016 - iMsg
Hey guys. I stopped playing a few months ago before the switch because I'm busy trying to make my million$ and was just wondering how the update is going. Is it like quake 3 again (but less players)?

Are there decent ctf, ca, 1v1, ffa scenes? Are there global stats and rankings, or just server stats?Are there more maps, better servers? Will I have some quake to come back to when I finally return?

Good to see Rapha streaming. Is there an event coming up or is he just in a quake mood lately?

Thanks.

QCon CTF/TDM Practice Streams (20 comments)

Anyone know the addresses to the QCon CTF/TDM streams? The only ones I've found are these two:

http://www.twitch.tv/lteamgaming

http://www.twitch.tv/br1ck89

I was watching some CTF last night, it was pretty good. I liked it better than the regular ctf coverage with announcers because in the streams you can hear the teams communicating and it makes it much more interesting. I wish they could incorporate that into the qcon coverage somehow.

Thanks.

Anyone else watching the Twitch Steamers (19 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 00:58 CDT, 23 September 2014 - iMsg
It's pretty interesting watching these guys play.

A lot of them have decent aim and they prefer the rail. None of them seem to like the LG at all. About half of them played Quake 3 a long time ago it seems. All of them seem to be having a lot of fun, which is unsurprising. It's kind of fun to watch them play and get pissed off or excited. I spent a couple hrs today watching their streams and giving some advice or info. If you tell them about the health and armor stacks and what the various weapons damages are it seems to help them.

Anyway its real nice seeing a game I've played on and off for 15 years being enjoyed for the first time by some of these people. I forgot what it was like to experience the game for the first time. Of course, these guys are used to online FPS games where I think a lot of us we not back in 1999.

Do you think any of these Steamers would spend $5 or so to unlock the bloody gibs?

Maybe id could make a quick few bucks from these guys before they run away because id did absolutely nothing to separate them from us.

Valid idea or no? Not sure how many would purchase. Actually I probably would just so I could turn them on for FFA while I rape all these newbs.

No one talking about CTF? (129 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 14:56 CDT, 28 August 2014 - iMsg
CTF completely sucks now. Classic CTF is unranked. So this might be the final nail in the coffin for CTF.

In Q3, ctf was very popular, and ctf servers remained the last servers that were well populated.

I feel like QL killed CTF with proximity mines and all the other TA bullshit, and now this is the final nail in the coffin.

No one is even talking about CTF now, one of the funnest game types, because id messed it up and never bothered to fix it.

And the reason CTF sucks now, for those who need elaboration, the new changes make ctf purely an aim and fighting skill game now. Because any idiot can run past an item timer and see that it is about to spawn and wait for it. Now players that had strong timing skill have no edge.

The new changes won't help newbs. Newbs will still be clueless. It just helps the mindless players pickup items and shifts more importance upon aim.

I do like the fact that they got rid of the TA BS FINALLY. But it was years too late.

Who else is routing for Evil this year? (63 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 14:22 CDT, 16 July 2014 - iMsg
He's given us so many great matches these past couple years on Faceit and 125fps, it'd be nice to see him take first this year. Plus I don't think he's won a major tourney yet??

Cooller's game (34 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 23:57 CST, 24 February 2014 - iMsg
Preface: I suck at QL, and I haven't played in a while but I've been watching the 1v1's for a while now and I feel compelled to post about Cooller's config.

Meat: Cooller is one of the best ever and he's amazing to watch, and he was probably the best in the world when he was a very active player. But his mouse accell... when he gets in a close range fight he can't hit shit with the RL. Maybe when he was very active he could control that accell better but now I think it's really holding him back. And you can see he has no confidence in his fighting skill because he gets all defensive a little too early in the matches and this allows comebacks to be made on him. I think if he tweaked his mouse settings a little he might be able to win a lot more games even though he doesn't play too much any more. Cause he still can out play anyone when he's on his game. Thoughts? flames?

Bonus: Also Cypher need to counter Evil's counters. It's impressive how Evil has been playing. The games are great to watch lately. Thanks to faceit and 125fps for the broadcasts.

WTF is WRONG with id? (310 comments)
Posted by magadog @ 05:25 CDT, 23 August 2013 - iMsg
Here you have a video game that plays so well, is so well loved, the players are forming little webtv networks and tournaments, giving prizes out of their own pockets, etc, yet ID can't make this game successful.

They need to start by focusing on the pros. They need to pay big cash prizes at the tourneys to attract attention. QL is like a sport, and they need to treat it as such if they want to be successful. Quake is not a normal video game because it is timeless because of the gameplay.

People enjoy watching sport tourneys and cheering for their favorite player, and watching them pull out nail biting victories to win tons of cash. And then they like practicing so that they one day might be as good and even beat their favorite player and win tons of cash.

Instead we have a situation where ID hold a tourney and last years champion can't even make the tourney because there is no money. No Cypher, no Cooller, no strenx, no killsen, no avekk, etc.

ID need to either get their crap togther or sell the francise to someone who knows wtf to do with it.
