After having recently launched a Quake Live ladder, ESL.eu yesterday announced their Quake Live spring league, which will run from 30 March to 31 May.
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. Read More

The AGP-Tour website is being finalized and in about two weeks the last stage of its beta phase will begin. Over at fragster.de an interview was published with Jarod Reisin, the CEO of AGP’s “Quake only”-Tour.
For those of you who don’t know what the AGP Tour exactly is,… don’t worry, you’re not alone. About a year ago the organizer Jarod Reisin announced the AGP Tour would organize tournaments for several 1v1 games, such as UT, Q4 and Q3 as well as cover them in a way that’s not been done before.
Yet as soon as this news was released, the whole project just seemed to pretty much fall flat on it’s butt. Today however it seems they are renewing this dream, yet now exclusively for Quake Live duels. Read More
