Quake at DreamHack down the tubes

Monday 19th May, 2008 | Skip to comments (29)

Lasts years QuakeWorld tournament at DreamHack was a success for both our beloved scene and the ‘cs’ crowd spectating our lovely old game. So far so good. This year we get enough interest to host another one, wow! What a joyride.

Here is where the fun stops and where the usual problems with getting lazy quakers from their ass, and getting them to actually do something, arise. Argh.

QW and Q2 will be canceled unless more players sign up!

Yeah, not enough sign ups. Did QuakeWorld die? Did we lose? What happened?

No we are alive, we are kicking, we are _not_ dead. Do we want other people to think so?

Probably not. So let’s make this another testament of great gaming and excellent sportsmanship.

This is a bad time not having a tournament at the biggest LAN in the world.

The scene has been in decline according to most regulars so this might be that last push, down the steps where the other dead games lie around. Brr.

So where are Locust , Milton, j0n, Reppie, Mawe, Fix, Insane, Fifi, Dag, Sphere, Razor, Gamer, Reload Griffin, Sudo, Doom, Valla, Nabbe, Interceptor, Mutilator, Xpr, Spoinka etc. The list could go on forever but i think it’s making my point clear, we want spectacular games to as much eyes as possible. Each one of these players have the capability of winning, and would each on their own bring a whole plethora of unique game play.

Even if it’s not the top tier div1 attending it’s fine. We need that tourney.
Please do sign up.

Mail the following information to quake4ever dreamhack se:

  • Game
  • Surname
  • Nickname (Alias)
  • Last name
  • City
  • Country
  • E-Mail
  • Cell phone number
  • Birth date

For any questions please contact our administrations in #DreamHack.Quake (irc.quakenet.org)

Here’s a few pictures from the previous LAN (view full image archive).

The last Dreamhack tournament was definitely one of the best Quakeworld experiences for me personally. While you didn't get to meet as many players as on QHLAN for example, you did get a professional tournament with a fairly competitive bunch of players signing up.

"Is it true that u cant bring yer own rig? And that u have to play on tft mointors?"

Last time you had to pay for an ordinary seat (that's like 600SEK) if you wanted to bring your own computer - which you weren't allowed to use in the tournament anyway. The tournament computers used TFT monitors, but the crew let you install your own mouse patches and change the refresh rates on stuff, so in the end i didn't have any problem with it (i even bought a TFT monitor for myself after this).

I would definitely have gone if i hadn't flushed QW down the tube a while ago.

"Is it true that u cant bring yer own rig? And that u have to play on tft mointors?"

well that should not really be a problem for you jon, then you have 2 more things to blame. other tips are "omg cs kids are screaming" "they poured jolt down my neck" "the beaver is wanking again"

Is there any list of the players that have signed up? And I would go there but summertime it just is impossible for me :(

that's why no one would take in consideration QW for something like this: http://www.esreality.com/?a=post&id=1555341 , and instead they picked Warsow.

Well QHlan is about 100~ attenders so it's not a problem with getting people, if that's what you meant.

We can clearly see that there's no problem getting people. :D
