An article has appeared on esports.gg that compares and looks at games in terms of eSports earnings and events. The author tried to determine what the best eSports game was, but found there were too many factors to determine a clear winner. Let’s have a look at how Quake fares when compared to other eSports titles.
As the recent QLReddit 2v2 tournament we had was a great success, we are organising another duel tourney. The tourney is open to anyone. There are currently no prizes, although is may change. Anyone is welcome to stream the games (especially participants!), so long as the players don’t mind and you let an admin know.
The exams are over and summer vacation has started. User snappas has created a thread on ESR to release his config cleaner, a nice little program that does just what it says. You can download the latest version here or via our mirror here.
CrazyAl from Reddit has announced a newbie duel cup next saturday, 8th of March, starting at noon CET. Anyone sub 1400 ELO is welcome to join in, if you have participated in at least 1 Community Game before. No worries if this hasn’t happened yet as we still have monday and wednesday to participate.

If you’re looking for practice and you don’t want to get your ass handed to you all the time when you join random servers, look no further. CrazyAl90 from Reddit has been organising Community Games geared towards newer people. If you want to be more competitive but at your own pace, join the Community Games. Monday and wednesday are aimed towards duel, saturday is all in the name of team modes. I will try to tweet when Community Games are hosted, so follow us to be reminded.

Kévin Strenx Baéza has opened a new website with videos and tutorials made by him. The site offers tips and lessons in French and English, so if you want to learn from pro player Strenx, then strenx.tv is the place to be. The site is launched with a lesson on Aerowalk. In the future, Strenx wants
A GTV for Quake Live, that’s what FragTV is. mos-6581 has created a GUI that connects to someone running a FragTV server, relaying a demo while it’s being recorded, essentially creating a GTV-like experience. Holysh1t had a similar concept in development years ago that was web based but we couldn’t quite package it nicely.
It looks like mos-6581 has managed to do so and added some handy features on top. The FragTV client requires a WolfcamQL installation and will also connect to TwitchTV and show the stream (for audio mostly since you’re watching it in better quality in WolfcamQL) and chatbox from Twitch.
All you want to do is upload that awesome frag to Youtube but you don’t know or want to go through all the hassle to convert your demo to a video file. If you think that the existing tools are too time consuming then look no further because Maverick Servers and Gaming has released an
ESAGamer.com has officially been released into open beta, meaning anyone can register. ESAGamer is a tournament site that will work with free and paid tournaments, based on subscribers. People pay a fixed fee that will be converted into prizemoney for the tournaments. The concept is fairly simple and added up 1000 subscribers will result into £5000 prize money. The more the merrier and ESAGamer guarantees prize money tournaments for low tier players as well, given that they are subscribed, of course.
A few days old now, but this great Quake Live browser has received another update. QLPrism is an all-in-one Quake Live browser/client with direct links to all the QL streams, an IRC client built-in, greasemonkey scripts for a better user-experience in the Quake Live server browser and more.
One of the most notable updates is built-in support for QLM, the Quake Live Messenger. This allows anyone to chat on IRC from within the game. The QLM bot is currently sitting cosy in our #holysh1t channel on irc.quakenet.org.
It is now also possible to switch fast between accounts. This functionality is based off the Secure Login extension made by Sebastian Tschan.
