It’s raining duel tournaments these days! Because of the lack of private servers – be patient, they will come sooner or later – the only game type that is actually doable in terms of running and managing, is duel.
I read on IRC about it this morning and it was posted yesterday on the Quake Live forums, and seeing that in 1 day it has already a decent amount of signups, it’s worth mentioning!
Spontangames.de is making it a tradition to organize a duel cup on a monthly basis. Their past editions (edition #1 and edition #2) have been a success so I can only cheer for this! Details Location: [europe] Europe Registration start: open for registration! Registration end: When full Places: 32 Game Type: Duel Event date: 05/04/2009
A league system is different from the ladder format though, so allow me to explain the system for those who are not familiar with it yet.
After having signed up, all competitors are being placed into several groups. Each player has to play against all other players in their group. If you win a match against a player, you get points. If you win enough matches and end near the top of your group, you advance to the playoffs.
Once you reach the playoffs all players will be organized into brackets. From now on, if you’re knocked out, you’re out of the league.
Probably the most exciting event of the year for all quake fans, QuakeCon, is coming! The new QuakeCon 2009 website tells us all about it.
This year’s event will be held at the Hilton Anatole – Dallas, Texas from Aug 13th – 16th. This means you can combine a great gaming experience with a luxurious stay at one of the famous Hilton hotels.
Complexity Gaming is organizing a Quake Live movie contest. The contest was announced February 27th, so the news reached us a bit late. You’ve only got time until 20 March 2009 to submit your entry, so if you still want to participate, better get started now!
