|old school and quad whore akke has ainterview on besmella-quake.|
akke now play's for the best quakeworld team today, flaming fist's.
is a intresting read, so check it out
i have played against akke and watched many demo's of him. he played with schroet kommando for a while, i sadly never got to play with him.
|our own koopatroopa get's some fame on xsr, the demo vs blokey from the celebrity deathmatch night which is run by mindphuck has got quite popular getting a massive 1030 downloads already.|
get the demo here , some nice rails both sides.
|i noticed over on quakenation a news item about the savage leagues are going to be on the same night as the barrysworld tdm league. it looks like the savage lads are still intending to run their leagues on the same nights as the barrysworld leagues. theres alot of mixed feelings about the whole thing. my own team, hatstand, entered the savage leagues only as an alternative to the bw league since we heard that bw may not be around for a 5th season. however, should bw have a 5th season and it is on the same night as the savage league, we will probably drop from savage to play in what we feel is the 1st league. your thoughts?|
|well maybe, read over at register that electronics boutique are looking at buying barrysworld, it's not sure which part though, but it could be taken over as soon as tonight! click here for more. |
|i read over at challenge-de that dev1il and pow3r have left formoza and plan to start a new team with pele.|
how will this effect formoza, will they still be russia's #1 quake3 team, or will the new team with dev1il, pow3r and pele lay the smack down?
there are some demo's of the new formoza player's in a 2v2 on xsr which show the player's in action. they seem to have very high sensitivty like pele.
|the savage euro ctf league announced that saturday the 17th of march is the kick off date for the league. irelands first game being v's scotland. since its on st. patricks day, im kinda wondering who will actually be playable and sober for the game |
|on polosatiy's web site he informs all that clan formoza take on two new members:|
team 4z has an addition. today we have accepted in team two very good players and former leaders of their clans - mikes and lord. so lets welcome them, 4z-lord and 4z-mikes... and another thing - 4z-devil and 4z-power arent leaving our team yet...
i have never heard of these new memebers, the cyberquest 2on2 tournament went on the 25th held in moscow which formoza won beeting formoza team2 in the finals. pele won the 1v1 (pow3r came 11th).
|when you cant see the angles no more, your in trouble.|
|jopasc sends word that he is organising the next qw european clan arena league at the moment. he is currently sorting out some links on uk gamer (ecal link at the top of the left column).|
according to jopasc, you have about three weeks to sort out a clan and let him know if your entering etc. if your clanless let him know aswell. it seems that many people are interested so he can sort out a board for people to meet / recruit. for more details, catch him on #ecal on quakenet.
|trinlan was a most excellent adventure. with about 5-6 teams in attendance, there was a|
shit load of wars going down. the big games of the weekend was the head to head with ps
and nd. unfortunetly, due to lack of time and some eejeet plugging out
the switches on the 3rd game, only two games took place. both of which were absolute
crackers with nd loosing to ps on dm6tmp and loosing by 1 single frag on dm7!!! you can
slurp both demos below.
i also threw in another demo of the spinsol team taking on clan acid in a friendly
game. big kudos goes to skyclad and quozl for setting up
the lan and getting things in cool working order. well done guys and thanks for an
excellent weekend. when i get a breather, i'll do up a weekend review, but for now, heres
nd v ps -

also you can read reviews of the match on quakenation, the playing fields (they've photos of some of the 4k lads in action. and a review over at xsreality.
on another note the game last night between ps and poq was amazing, with ps playing poq 3v4 on q3dm7 for most of the match before koopa turned up with 4 minutes to go and they managed to snatch the lead in a bit of a cliff hanger. unfortunately dm8 didn't go to plan and ps lost, loosing them promotion. hard luck lads, we were routing for you in irc/gtv :/
|are you on this list?. if the answer is yes, then you are going to the most awaited lans in a loong time. if your answer is no, then your probably from bio or something!. either way, if your not going to trinlan, your soo gonna miss out |
|the eq3l final kicks off tonight between ea and mtw. the eq3l is an invitational ctf league with over 30+ clans participating. the final should be of great interest to the team.ie ctf squad as most of the players in both clans are in the german national team for the savage ctf tourney. for more details on the final, join #mtw and #azeroth for updates on gtv and scores.|
|the millennium fragfest lan event in malaysia had to be cancelled at the last minute. last nite, a gang of 5 parang-wielding crazed men broke into the event center. they proceeded to treathen people and held them as hostage whilst the men unloaded the 20 or so pc's, from the hall, into the back of a truck and then drove off! it sounds like an inside job to me. all i can say is - what the hell!!|
|erazor from xs reality has done a really excellent preview of the up'n coming league. he brings his thoughts on each division on the different teams involved and its definately worth a read if your interested in the cup.|
