|i have set up the details for everyone who is participating in the cpl qualifiers for the cpl holland event. take the time to have a look at the rules and the general details of the qualifier. as yet, no details of prizes, but have a look anyway.|
|since team ps has now gone totaly inactiv, myself and beast needed a new team to join. had some good offer's from uk teams, but have decided to join team bio. they have a fully activ online team at moment (well nearly *cough* ecup3) so we shall help out with lan side of things.|
how do you think this will effect the irish quake3 scene, if it will at all.
|in clanbases eurocup, there was a few games last nite. notibly, neo v's bwl and bio v tulls. |
the neo v bwl match went down to three games. bwl taking neo 96-49 on dm14, neo snatching dm7 with 108-91. it was a great comeback for bwl on dm6 who won 120-102. you can read more about it here
the bio game was a little mysterious as it turns out bio didnt show for their game and tulls got a forfeit. according to cb rules, a team can show up and play whats called their wildcard just before a game and have their match replayed at a later date. i briefly spoke to m1ke, leader of bio, who told me he turned up too late to play the wildcard. the official standing does look like a forfeit against bio, but it may get replayed just yet.
|there is a new 12 man qw 1v1 tourney taking place in north america. they have a webpage here. so far 12 people have been invited to participate:|

division 2: czm, clown, bulldozer, jester, wang, yogic
zzjohnzz will be running the comp. as of late the quakeworld servers have been filling up and there are rumours that izno may be organising a big european qw competition, something along the veins of the famous tgi comp.
|there's quite a few timer scripts floating around at the moment, but ureal has managed to put together an external timer which is supposedly better than the current ones. however, since its an exe, theres debate over whether its a cheat or not. you can grab the timer here. |

|over at daily radar there is a new interview with id programmer jim dose. the interview does not tell you much more about the game that you havnt heard already, but still all the same worth reading.|
practically every title that id software has released in its decade-long history has been groundbreaking, whether in creating a genre or in defining a new level of graphic detail. we expect doom 3 to do the same thing, so we spoke with id about what we can expect and what is perhaps unexpected. a doom game with a decent story?

|the barrysworld tdm groups were announced tonight. taking a quick look at the tables :|
bio - div 1a
hat - div 2a
fh - div 3b
hatb - div 3c
lsd - div 3c
no sign of ps in any of the groups. does this mean ps are no more ?

|i found a intresting report on how win2000 is for games. i know many of you use it, i myself much more prefer winme for games. i have always felt a fps drop in performance with win2k (even though many of you have told me otherwise).|
overall, the general message is that windows 2000 is no longer a connoisseur of incompatibility, but a very viable alternative to windows 98 for users from all walks of life.
installing windows 2000 is a day’s work, but maintaining it requires only seconds. if you plan the upgrade beforehand, you should have no trouble, and the less hassle in the long run, the more games that can be played.
get some coffee and read the full report over at eurogamer.
|jedi sends word that he is willing to run a 2v2 league to keep the old scene ticking over. if anyone is interested, drop him a mail with details of your team of 2. the plan is to have the league up and running over the next two weeks.|
|too much heat cannot be good for your hardware. some lads while being very board, was trying to see how much heat there hardware can handle. |
this was going to take some thinking through, and some important safety precautions. we took neither. instead we decided to wing it. luckily, no one was killed (does not include people living in the state of florida or georgia).
|the computer sports network today announced that it has partnered with the cyberathlete professional league to provide the official cpl rankings. |
the cpl has established itself at the forefront of a new sport and this step further cements its role. csports will provide the design and maintenance to make a meaningful ranking system a reality.
the cpl rankings will aim to rank computer gamers who play in cpl endorsed tournaments and other selected events around the world. the ranking system will be based on systems used in other sports and will also form a basis of seedings for cpl tournaments. the first versions of the rankings will appear on the computer sports network site at the end of march.

|the first week of the savage|
tdm cup took place last night. groups 1 and 2 played out their games. the
irish contingency was from hatstand
in group 1 and acid in group 2.
hatstand came 2nd in their group by winning their first three games and narrowly
losing to 4k (*cough*). acid came in 4th in their group, loosing 3 games and
deafeating dn. if you take a look at the scores below, you can see that they
were all close games (bar the unr and 4k games).
hatstand 101 v 76 zieke puppies (
hatstand 91 v 46 legion
hatstand 164 v 48 i cant frag (
hatstand 31 v 211 four kings
acid 30 v 169 unreal
acid 159 v 74 digital nemesis (
acid 81 v 94 star du x revival (
acid 74 v 93 alliance
what i would like to bitch about is the crazy placings of the various top teams.
4k, unr, neo, etc were all placed in groups which they are not meeting each other,
thus guaranteeing that the top teams get out of the group to meet in the finals.
this pretty much makes participating in the cup for someteams a pointless afair as
they have no chance to get out of their groupings. i would have thought teams like
4k and unr should have been seeded and placed into a group of their own. but hey, im not a
sore looser, i pointed this out before we started the thing and we entered purely for the
laugh of it. i would like to point out that hatstand took the piss for the 4k game
as we knew we were gonna get destroyed. and no you cant have the demo ))
|a 15yr old boy has gone on a shooting spree in a school in california, about 10 miles northeast of san diego.|
read more here.
i think that the media is the problem. they glamorize it so much, and make it seem "kewl" to shoot kids up at school. look at the attention this little shit got, for shooting his teacher's and class mates up.
what has this to do with quake though? well everytime this happen's they need to put the blame someware, and where better then computer game's?
does playing fps game's make you realy want to go kill you teacher? (shooting your boss is ok!).
should there be a higher age limit on violent game's?
also found this link which im sure was writen by an american.
|the savagedm cup kicks off tonite at 7. with over 60 clans divided randomly into 16 groups this could make for quite an entertaining leauge. |
best of luck to all irish clans taking part such as acid in group 2,
hatstand in group 1 and fh in group 4.
with such bizare match up's like acid vs unr ( at 7 tonite ), this could end up a nice "just for fun" leauge.
|bigfoot has posted the divisions for season 5 in the barrysworld ctf league. they are only in draft format, but it will still give you and idea of whos playing in what division. keep an eye on quakenation for bigfoots season preview, which is always a good read.|
|since a huge contingency of q3 gamers play starcraft (me being one of them), this will interest you lot. daishi from xs reality sends word on a new sc tournament. here's what he said : |
i'm helping to organise an international starcraft tournament, with around 25 teams taking part. it's due to start in around a month, and be played on a weekly basis, with possible lan finals - depending on sponsors of course.
i'm looking for someone from ireland who can setup a team consisting of 6 1 on 1 players, and 3 2 on 2 teams. players can be in both 1 on 1 and 2 on 2.
i've been appointed an organiser, but if anyone else feels they want to do it, let me know and i'll pass this on. in the interim, drop myself or dashi a mail if your up for some serious games.
they're going to have a vote in a couple of days as to the tournament format. so far the confirmed sides are : america, australia, austria, belgium, bulgaria, brazil, canada, china, france, germany, greece, holland, italy, ireland, israel, norway, poland, russia, south africa, sweden, switzerland, uk. still looking for definate representatives from: denmark, finland, hong kong, singapore, spain and any other country you can think of.
|something of interest to bio, our representing clan from ireland in the eurocup. two team from bio's group got it on this weekend. neo beat tulls over two maps. dm14tmp - 104:74 and on dm7 - 118:108. already contraversy is brewing over servers and connections, which you can have a good read of on clanbase.|
|a friend of mine, van, pointed this out to me. its a list music/mp3's from the infamous clan, 404. if you havnt heard these, your such a newbie and should get yo ass in gear and slurp them.|
|xsreality asked 20 gamers (not all in ec3) about their thoughts on the new clanbase eurocup 3 ruling which was that teams must use the default network settings in quake 3, namely snaps 20, cl_maxpackets 30, cl_timenudge 0, unless a compromise can be agreed by both teams. you can find it here along with some other reports.|
who do you think suffers more, isdn or the leased line players?
i think myself that the isdn people loose out more, but making the leased line players suffer becuase of other peoples problems, also doesnt seem fair.
|the cpl are to run on-line amature leagues. the leagues will be in three divisions, cs, ut and q3. the purpose of the new league will be to enable average gamers, such as those who do not have the resources to attend a live professional event, to participate in online tournaments. the news comes from avault and is not official as yet. we will have to wait until the cpl announces exactly what they will be doing. stay tuned on this one.|
