I just began listening to an audiobook that is about Elon Musks biography, and in this audiobook it is told that he played quake in his zip2 company with other employees and they got 2nd place in a team tournament and won several thousands of dollars.
Is there any truth in that? I can hardly imagine that a techy guy like him has the talent and finds time to play quake at a competetive tournament level ... back then there was also not much money in the game, I think there was only the pgl and one microsoft tournament and the ferrari tournmanet from id itself, which were also mostly about duel and not teamplay ... prolly the author of the biography is exagerating a bit there, am I right?
