QuakeCups - CTF for fifth edition written by Sabre0001, 2008-09-23 16:44 CEST (15 comments)

Quake Quick Cup V goes CTF!!!

Last week saw a bit of a change-up to the format of the Quake Quick Cup [qqc.tourney.cc] as it split into a cup for higher level players (Quake Quick Cup) and a cup for newer or more inexperienced players (‘Not Quite Pro’ Cup [notquitepro.tourney.cc] – Congratulations again to SearrarD).

Now, things are being altered again slightly thanks to feedback received from the community. Both cups are going to take on a more scheduled look so that players can plan ahead :).

Quake Quick Cup: Capture The Flag – Team Deathmatch – Free For All/Instagib – Duel
‘Not Quite Pro’ Cup: Rest Week – Duel – Rest Week – Duel

What does this mean and why are there “rest weeks” in the NQP Cup – It’s all in the name of variety, trying to get people involved and trying to make sure that everyone is having fun. The “rest weeks” are scheduled to coincide with Quake Quick Cups where the game mode is more friendly for newer or lower skilled players. So while you may be a NQP player, you will get to play with higher skilled players and have fun because you have support!

In Capture The Flag (which will be the next Quake Quick Cup on Sunday 28th September) teams will be balanced to ensure that the overall makeup is at a similar level. So all are welcome to play regardless of skill level. Please sign-up early because teams do need to be balanced – if there are uneven numbers, unfortunately some players will be acting as substitutes. Sign-ups will close on Sunday at 08:00. This will enable us to make up and balance teams.

So to sign-up or for more information visit the Quake Quick Cup [qqc.tourney.cc] site or the ‘Not Quite Pro’ Cup [notquitepro.tourney.cc] site! As usual, if you have any questions or comments let us know!

A little twist written by Sabre0001, 2008-09-15 18:50 CEST (21 comments)

I would like to announce that Quake Quick Cup IV is open for sign-ups [qqc.tourney.cc]. This cup will be run on Sunday 21st September. However, things will be a little different this time :) This cup is being run in association with the “Not Quite Pro” Cup [notquitepro.tourney.cc]. What this means is that there are now two tiers of skill levels. So the Quake Quick Cup Series will be run for the experienced or competitive players. This is to allow everyone to have a competitive game while having fun!

In order to check-in, players must be in IRC on the day between 17:30 and 18:00. Matches will go live at 18:00. Please be in the IRC channel #esports.ie in order to arrange matches and keep up to date with the latest news, scores and results.

As usual, GTV will be available to spectators on the day. Please download the lobby map [speedyshare.com] in order to minimise waiting time (it's for your own good!). This file should be put in C:\quake3\gtv3 directory and when you load Quake, press ` and enter cl_allowdownload 0
To connect to GTV, in the console type /connect games2.mysmart.ie:27963 and follow the instructions.
All are welcome to spectate

Game:
Quake 3 v1.32 & CPMA mod (v1.46)
Vq3 gameplay

Server:
games2.mysmart.ie

Tournament Structure
Match type: 1v1 Duel
Tournament will be run as a GROUP STAGE followed by a SINGLE ELIMINATION BRACKET.

Within the group stage the matches are 10 minute maps and draws ARE allowed.
In the elimination bracket matches are 15 minute maps and best of 3.
Overtime: 2 minutes

Maps:
ztn3tourney1
pro-q3dm6
pro-q3tourney4
pro-nodm9
hub3aeroq3

Match is played as a “best of three maps”. Both players select a map from the map list before the match starts. If a third map is required, each player eliminates one map from the list. The player with the lower frag difference from the previous two maps eliminates the first map and the higher player gets the deciding vote.

Results and maps should be submitted to Sabre0001 or Rzelky shortly after match completion. Screenshots and demos are not necessary but may be of use in the case of a dispute.


Note: This is a QUICK cup. Therefore it will be run within one day. As a result, we must be mean with time. If you are called to play, you must be in IRC. From first notification you have 15mins to play the game (unless you can provide a valid reason and there are other games that can be played within this time). Otherwise you will have to forfeit your match.

If you do not have IRC, a quick access is available for Firefox [webchat.quakenet.org]. Just enter your nickname and #esports.ie as the channel.
Internet Explorer [web-irc.org] users can also partake in the fun. The server is irc.quakenet.org. The port is 6667 and the channel is #esports.ie

Parties involved in this: PPC (server), Rzelky (lots of donkey work) and myself (Sabre0001). Thanks also to Smart Telecom for providing the servers.

All feedback will be much appreciated so that we can make it bigger and better in future. If you have ANY QUESTIONS please contact Rzelky or Sabre0001 in #esports.ie or on www.boards.ie

A challenger appears... written by Sabre0001, 2008-09-14 22:59 CEST (5 comments)

The third Quake Quick Cup draws to a close. Unfortunately, hit by a few technical problems between Quake games not running and a ping timeout in the final!

The finals produced a lineup that many would have been dying to see at the beginning with two-time finalists Rzelky and killy making another appearance. But first they would have to overcome the challenges of kRoNic and Vinnit respectively.

But the fans were to be denied another rematch as the newcomers had a different plan. Rzelky fell to kRoNic 2-0 while killy suffered the same fate.

The finals produced a stunning display from Vinnit on dm6 as he took a 23-12 win and threw down the gauntlet. kRoNic took nodm9 but only after falling behind early on and surviving a comeback late in the game.

The final map would be pro-t4 (again!). Vinnit jumped out to a 8-1 lead before stopping suddenly. The cause was found and Vinnit timed out. The match would be restarted with 10minutes left and the score standing. kRoNic benefitted from being free to play while Vinnit sorted his connection and closed the lead rapidly. But Vinnit was able to hold his nerve and take the overall win 20-12.

Thanks to all who took part and spectated. All feedback is once again appreciated. Also thanks to Rzelky for the admin help, thanks to PPC for setting up servers and thanks to Smart Telecom for providing the servers!
