barrysworld q3 tdm league
bigfoot has posted the draft divisions for season 6 on the league website. this season will see 140 clans participating, with 25 or so allready on the waiting list. the divisions have been posted with the times they will take place.
the divisional letters do not indicate skill, they are only there to split up clans we believe of equal skill into more manageable groups. for example, div2a is intended to be as strong as div2b and div2c and div2d, and so on. the structure of the league is exactly the same as last season with a slight change to the div2 <-> div1 promotion/relegation. clans have until sunday evening to ask for changes with the divisions being finalised and seasons fixtures being posted by monday evening. barring unforeseen problems the league will start as scheduled on the 10th / 11th july.
the map pool for season 6 is as follows:
irish related clans have been placed in the following divisions -
hat - div 2a (didn't move from last season)
bio - div 2c (relegated from division 1 from last season)
fh - div 3b (didn't move from last season)
hatb - div 3c (hatb are dropping from the league as the whole team will be playing as one side)
bio.hpb - div 4b (new to league - high ping clan )
lsd - sadly, it appears acid have dropped from the league?
barrysworld q3 ctf league
the draft divisions for season 6 on the league website were also posted. this season will see 74 clans participating, with 13 clans on the waiting list currently. divisions will be finalised on sunday, with fixture lists for the entire season being posted on sunday or monday.
barring any unforeseen problems the league will start on sunday 8th / monday 9th july. the map pool for season 6
irish related clans competing in the league -
bio - div 1 (were promoted from division 2 to division 1)
fh - div 3c (i believe fh are new to the league?)
ts - i personally play for ts (who are now placed in division 2b), who although not an irish(ish) clan, i think i'll pimp them here from week to week
i also noticed over on quakenation that nightfever has wrote up his predicitons for the forth coming season.
|it seems that e2m10 had to be removed form quake originally, but john romero has now made it available, although unfinished.|
for a long time now, i've kept one remnant of quake's creation that i had to cut out. it's the lost entrance of the dismal oubliette. yes, there used to be a much more interesting beginning to that area of quake, but i had to amputate the guy and cauterize the wound into its current state, the starting point of e2m6. i remember spending many hours trying to get it just right, to create the feeling of an awful, cavernous pit for the player to get out of and into the real horror of the oubliette. it added a nice bit of gameplay time and i'm sorry that it had to go, but we set the .bsp file size at 1.4mb and had to be strict about it.
you can get your hands on it here
|today sees the 5 year anniversary of quake. yes, its 5 years old since its first release! methos has done up a lenghty history lesson about quake and how it has affected us all. a good read. |
on the homefront, i got this mad nostaligic buzz the other night while me and coda where having a mad chat about the good owld days. anyway, the end result is, i've put up a quakeworld ctf server on kali.ign.ie. using an old winquake mod, i ported it to qw so that uses the old id maps, sounds, keys, etc.
god, i remember the indigo days, i lost countless nights, creeping into early mornings, playing ctf. sitting at base with haste and an grendade laucher and it was pineapple city! like the good old days eh. have fun!
|the matches for the barrysworld|
tdm all*stars games will take place on tuesday 26th from 8.00pm. it will be best of
5 maps. with hopefukly scorebots and gtv's in place it could be an entertaining
evening. the current line-ups are as follows : (these will possibly change as div 1a
is short a few players?)
playing captain - neo-ranger
captain - v-yodaz
note : don't look now, but is that bio-jedi in div 1b. nice to see an irish player standing up there.

i would like to say it was a great cup, however, you can read what i have to say about it over on my column. and if you think my word aint good enuf, check out what furax from iqs had to say over on quakenation.
|bigfoot has posted his|
review of season 5 of the
target="_blank">barrysworld q3ctf league on the league`s official coverage site,
href="http://www.quakenation.com" target="_blank">quakenation. season 5 finished last monday with european super-clan iqs winning the division 1 title for the 2nd season in a row, ahead of their close rivals cn. the review looks at all 6 divisions in depth,
including the views of 2 or more participants from each. there is also the usual barrage
of stats for the whole league which saw 76 clans start competing in back in early march.
i must make a note now to make sure that bio get a mention for winning division 2 of the league, just in case
any wingers come on and say i didn't.
mindphuck has done up a really excellent review of the irish quake clan league back in '98. it's got some class pictures,
demos and even an amazing results page, so you walk down memory lane and have a good laugh at it.
check out the review here.
|the european clanarena league ii is about halfway over, and things are looking good so far for the irish teams. clan eazy sit comfortably on top of group a, with a flawless record, while icp are just behind them, having lost only to the group leaders. in group b, gt are unbeaten so far, and remain in 2nd place with a game in hand behind clan denial. their two remaining fixtures are against group leaders dn and last season's beaten finalists uk.|
|not much else one can add to that, but you can take a look and check out the details of the future events on their site.|
|nethouse have cancelled their qw masters competition for this friday. instead, their just holding a lan for anyone who wants to come along anyway.|
|next month sees the cpl tourney in london. its a team event. no 1v1 competition this time round for the cpl. in fact, some people might dare to say, that this could be the last q3 team event at any cpl competition, i hope not myself.|
ok, back to team.ie, i will be holding on-line and lan trials for the team. i will be ensuring that the team picked will be the best and that same team will be looked after in proper sponsorship. each player will get their flights and accomodation paid for and any extra activities which may occur from the weekend.
as yet, no dates are being published for trails, but for now, please stick your name down here if you want to be on the national irish q3 team for play against the best in europe.
|on 3dspotlight there tutorial on isdn tweaking for win2k. dunno how usefull it is but have a look anyhow|
quake3 ctf league finally completed season 5 last night with the div4a and div3b
titles being decided. the final winners list now looks like this:
division 1 - iqs - international quake squad
division 2 - bio - bring it on
division 3a - lkff - loz kampoz fragging force
division 3b - wc - wolfclaw
division 4a - gos - gamers of sweden
division 4b - hah - heaven and hell
well done to bio in
winning their division.
|just a reminder, if nethouse dont get numbers by wednesday, there's no competition on friday, which would be a terrible pity, surely there are more than 10 people that would go for some dm4?|
list looks like gerry, sico, fanj, ol, devore, bunny, zero, gman, slaan, renton.
surely there's more could come along for some slaps?
mp, you know you want a hiding.
koopa, enter the comp if only to make the numbers.
cmon kids, you know you want it.
|godsmurf from clanbase has done up a very lenghty and concise review of the new urban terror beta. |
urban terror clearly outshines counterstrike in the realism department. locational damage and climbing on structures are major reality features cs just doesn't have, and then there are a multitude of smaller features that give ut an edge: sprinting short distances, throwing knives, bandaging team mates, realistic weapon reloading, realistic kevlar, weapon silencers, night vision, ... . most of these features not only enhance the realism but also the fun.
its very detailed review and really worth looking into if your interested in ut2. check it out here.

|the guys from quake 3 fortress have released 18 lovely shots of the upcoming beta 2 release. they look delicious, and are available here.|
for those of you who are still uneducated, quake 3 fortress is a game 'inspired by' qwtf* for the quake 3 engine. it's being done by a load of qwtf nuts, who like to idle in #q3f on irc.quakenet =)
and for those of you who remember spazball, the qwtf map, have a look at q3f_spaz. it looks very very nice indeed.
* quakeworld team fortress is a game by team fortress software, who were hired (i belive, correct me if i'm wrong) to make tfc for valve. qwtf is the mother of all class based mods, and all you youngsters need to play it. i will be playing it in dnc this saturday night if you want a go.
oh, thanks to deadbankclerk from fortess.ie for this one.
|fanj sends word that nethouse are about to run a qw competition called, the nethouse qw masters. its a duel competition with cpl rules. i have been asked to run this baby on friday the 15th of this month. ok, so, its £10 quid in. there is a good prize, which will be announced when everyone has signed up. now, anyone who is intending in competiting, stick a comment down here. |
