the final of the european challenge-smackdown 5 league was played last night ending with slackers beating legeartis 3 games to 1. all the games where very close as you can see in the reports / mvd demos here.

in the other top european quakeworld league nations quake rank, clan malfunction have beatin the challenge-smackdown 5 winners slackers in the semi finals. so it leaves the other semi final between hellfire and legeartis to be played to find out who will play clan malfunction in the finals.

also if your clan hasnt signed up for the new season of qw-cup then do so asap, theres around 50 clans signed up so far. n.b: it's for div2/div3 clans only so you dont have to get raped by any leet div1 teams.

'electronic sports world cup - lan arena 2003 trophy' championship of the universe will be held in france in the summer. last years lan arena was a big success, however this year they've pumped over 150,000 euros into the prize money. the main events will be cs 5v5 (maybe dnc could make it) ut32k35 1v1 and a warcraft 1v1 with a so called 'female' tourney and a q3 1v1 international challenge.

more interesting should be the 'open international golden mouse cup' to be held in moscow in march. no ut this time, but warcraft 1v1, cs 5x5 and most importantly a q3 1v1..finally a comp to sort out the best russians. prize money will be around $50,000 with about $5,000 of that going for q3 first place, not enough to encourage the americans to go over, but i'm sure some euros will make it.

can the guys who were sound enough to put their names down, please take the time out to hop into a bank and throw your 20 quid into the account, it's a small amount that if we dont get it at this stage, might stop the whole thing altogether.

smackdown semi-final bewteen lege artis (la) and clan malfunction (cmf) took place last night. lege artis with a 54-0 map record in smackdown and nqr won 3-1 dropping their first map of the season.you can see the report and get the demos from href="http://www.challenge-smackdown.com/div_eu/onereport.php3?gam_code=1017">here.

its been considered the best qw 4v4 series since smackdown1 in 1999? where the greatest clan in qw ever flaming fist beat euthensia. there was commentry done on teamspeak by hangtime, sassa and def. they had interviews after where koopa was one of the hot topics during the qhlan discussion. it should be available for download soon.

this puts lege artis in the final against slackers, who beat tribe of tjernobyl in the other semi-final. the final should be great there's alot of tension bewteen the clans going back to 1998/99 as lege artis have dag/akke/pietro from flaming fist and slackers have paradoks/vana/goljat from euthensia.

btw qw >>>>>>>>>>x2 q3

gameservers.net q3tdm cup groups have been announced. there are 2 irish clans involved, 70 and nd. because of the seeded cup format, all the groups are difficult. 70, in their first league, will face plenty of strong opposition, especially from the seeded teams eoe (from germany - one of the best ctf clans in europe), and swedish ninjas al. the other names i recognise are ql from uk - in bwdml div1, and fs a dutch clan in bwdml div2. as far as i know, the dutch clan rm are upper div3/lower div2 bw standard, but i can't say for sure since they're only on the waiting list in bwdml, and playing on home ground in holland they will have a significant ping advantage over 70. the remaining clans, rif and re are from russia and sweden respectively, so i wouldn't want to underestimate either of them.

nd's group i would guess is easier, but i don't know half of the clans there so its not fair to say. their seeded clans are a swedish clan n4sa and the dutch clan x4. i would say that these are the weakest of the seeded pairs, but then again, i've been out of touch with tdm for too long so i don't know x4 will have super low pings though. another dutch clan in the group is bms. tric from italy might have some connection troubles. storm is a benelux clan (with 1 french person). they have a few ex-ndc players and others from division 2, and are currently 3rd in bwdml div3b. the danish clan prey are still in the cb open cup second league scandanavian division, so they're no muppets either. and finally, ukntot i have never heard of, and are german.

  cb nations update - 08/12/2002Illkillya | 10400 views | 2 replies 
last friday ireland played france in cb nations ctf. unfortunately, we couldn't get myself, vin and 2fish onto broadband as we had expected, so had to change our team and tactics at the last minute, and had a new team of sno, anarchy, nex (on broadband), me (isdn) and dest (isdn). france lanned for the game and had nice pings of 30ish. nexus managed to play off the ul broadband for the game, but his ping changed from 20 to 60 just as the game was about to start, and it didn't go back. france won both maps, 1-0 on our map q3w2 and 3-0 on their map q3ctf2. theres a bit of a report here.

today we played slovenia in the q3 tdm clanbase nations cup. our team consisted of anarchy, beast, koopa and vincent. this time, koopa and vin were able to play from ul lan. we were a bit late for the first map (on dutch server) because of a problem getting around the firewall. ireland had a ping advantage, but still lost slovenia's home map pro-q3dm6. the game was very close until the last few minutes, with the lead changing hands regularly. the final score there was 131-147 to slovenia.

on ireland's map, dm7, we got a very bad start and slovenia took a 20ish frag lead in the first few minutes. ireland recovered though, and managed to regain control. near the end of the game, the ref kicked a slovenian player (drava) for spamming and being lame just about everytime he died (in the previous game also). he had been warned earlier by the ref that he would be kicked, and even his teammates didn't want him playing. the slovenian coach morgoth subbed in for the remainder of the game, but they couldn't stop ireland from extending the lead. final score was 168-143 to ireland.

this meant a deciding map was needed, but at that time a slovenian player, miso, had to go. slovenia had nobody to replace him with, since the other players they had available were in 666 and could not play since there is a maximum of 2 players from a clan allowed to play at once. slovenia would have forfeit the 3rd map, but zero said it was ok to play the 3rd game another time if clanbase allowed it. theres no date set for the decider yet.

update: dm7 demo from vin's pov is here.

  punkbuster fix. - 03/12/2002Jay | 10846 views | 1 replies 
punkbuster has been causing a lot of gamers a lot of problems recently especially in leagues such as the bwq3dml and the bwq3ctfl.

a part of the problem was that the guid checking server was moved to id software, where the guids are checked from a database causing problems for players with both legal and illegal copies.

the other major problem affected the spectators and followers, causing gtv to kick the clients with the error message "time out trying to update pb client" after a random amount of time.

anyway, to make a long story even longer, this is now fixed. hopefully we've seen the last of pb problems.

thanks to mindphuck we managed to get koopa and vin on broadband for tonight, it paid off in the cbnations ctf cup at 8 against netherlands. we didn't know what to expect, since this was the first time our team played together. after a 2-minute server search, we went to lsr's server in uk. it took awhile for koopa and vincent to get setup (putting network cable in isdn ta... wp vin) but eventually we started on ireland's home map q3w2, with a team of vincent, 2fish (koopa), anarchy, sno, killy (me ) with zero coaching. after an early cap for us, the game was stalemate for 15 minutes (except for one moment when we were saved at enemy flag by sno). towards the end, ned really put the pressure on us by attacking with 4 men, but our defence of vincent and 2fish held firm, final score 1-0 to ireland.

ned chose cp9 as their home map: i had expected this since they beat france there last week, even though their traditional home map is cp5. bd subbed in for me and i replaced zero as coach. ned won comfortably 4-1 despite being well outfragged, there was clearly a lot of room for improvement by ireland on this map.

next came time to pick the decider map, which was q3w7. i moved back in to replace bd, and zero returned to coach. another early cap by ireland gave us a room to breathe, like w2 this is a map which can be difficult to score on. after 15 mins, we had settled for a 1-0 win, but as they did on w2, ned decided to go all-out attack. they couldn't get past our broadband lg's though, so it just resulted in two more caps for ireland and a final score scoreline of 3-0. overall result: ireland 4 - 2 netherlands. gg's ned and thanks to the_stranger for gtv.

the cbnations tdm was scheduled for 10pm, and after a late end to bwdml div1, ireland and uk settled on a dutch server where pings were fairest. the irish team was 2fish, ser, anarchy, vincent, with captain zero coaching. most of the players were on 35ish ping, but blokey's 20 ping cancelled out storm's 50 ping. unfortunately this was only the second time this irish team played together (the first time being against estonia in the playoffs when vin and koopa were on isdn). ireland's map was q3dm7, we got a horrible start and it took a few minutes to get back into the game. they just started to cess constantly, regaining ra at times but never holding it long enough to make a comeback, thanks to blokey and jay who were very impressive for uk. the final score was 231-149 to uk.

another bad start for ireland on uk's home map pro-dm6. uk clearly have their own way of playing this map, must be why its their home map, and it was very effective. ireland held ra for a lot of the game, and got a good few powerups, but because of uk's style we were never really in control. the best work was done by jay for uk who finished with a net of +37. theres a report on clanbase here.

nd meet fs this wednesday in div2b of the bwdml, while tonight we play a very important game against s9r in the clanbase 2nd league playoff. 3 wins in the next three games would put us in the final of the second league. 3 hard wins to get but we'll see how we do. in other news, there are rumours floating around about mp pulling a new irish clan together in the next couple of weeks which would be cool for our dwindling community. will keep you posted.
