Update - Site should work properly now.
The Official AGP (Association of Gaming Professionals) Tour Website has been launched by Jarod "Streetrunner" Reisin.
"The AGP Tour is an international series of professional video game tournaments consisting of the best players in the world. Following Quake 3 and its 10 years of history as a pro sport, Id Softwareís Quake Live has been released as its successor. It will be featured and focused on by the AGP Tour as a major sport and will be presented live and online as it has always deserved."To mark the launch the site Joe "nineX" Szymkowicz has interviewed Shane "rapha" Hendrixson, Jeffrey "draven" Debipersad, Aaron Anton "HELL" Jones, Johan "Toxic" Quick, and "Chance" Lacina to get their thoughts on QuakeLive ...
Do you think Quake Live has the potential to become the largest deathmatch game ever?
Rapha - If they keep progressing in a positive direction like they have so far, and listen to the pros, then yes it definitely has the potential to be.
Draven - It has potential to become a really great game. So many people are already playing the game; people from Unreal Tournament, CS:Source, Quake 2, and Warsow are coming to play Quake Live and most of them like it.
Hell - It definitely has the potential to be. Itís already drawn in masses around the world, itís free, itís easy, and doesnít require any patches or downloading of maps or pakfiles like other Quake games. Itís very user friendly and anyone can play it. I canít see how it cannot be one of, if not the biggest.
Toxic - I think itís too early to tell that yet. I want to see a few tournaments played before I could make up my mind about that. Usually the games are played alot different online than they are in major events, but I think the game have potential to grow.
Chance - It has begun.
