2008 - Not only the year of Rambo 4

Tuesday 11th December, 2007 | Skip to comments (20)


2008 is definitely the year of avidly hoped for sequels. While almost everyone is looking forward to Sylvester Stallone showing some Burmese fellas how to party, the real gem of 2008 was yet to be officially announced. And here it comes: Nations Quake Rank 11!

That’s right: NQR is back! It’s been a long 7 months without a word from the officials, but now the admins have decided to hit off the new season some time after QHLAN 11 and the currently underway season of EQL.

Thanks to gaz, most of the preparations required for NQR 11 have now been completed. Also, some changes were made to the roster: For now, the NQR staff are very happy to announce Swedish Kenya-loving settings-nerd Molgrum as one of the new admins. While having collected a fair bit of experience as an admin in the Quakeworld Kenya Collective, the NQR staff is mainly hoping for Molgrum to take a leading role in the omnipresent discussions about clients and commands, radars and other obscurities such as.

Additionally to Molgrum, the NQR staff are thinking of expanding their admin roster by one more person. If you think you could be a worthy addition, I suggest you drop us a line. Here are some basic requirements for the job:

  • Good English. You should be able to communicate with players from all over Europe and furthermore be able to write news and interviews.
  • No affiliation with EQL or NNQL. (not that we have anything against their admins. We’d just prefer to have some diversity for obvious reasons)
  • Some knowledge of what’s going on in the scene, who the players and clans are, etc.
  • The time and enthusiasm required to do the job and - throughout the whole season.
  • While we all have our personal grudges against various players or clans, NQR is not the place for personal vendettas. Be objective.
  • Although not necessary, it would be nice if you were not Swedish since Swedes already form the majority of the active admins.

In order to provide top notch coverage of games, the NQR staff are furthermore constantly looking for commentators. These commentators would obviously not be part of the regular NQR crew, but it would be nice to know who to contact when looking for one. Perhaps it would also be nice to have some commentators prepared to provide live commentary for lower div or rookie games. If you’re interested, drop us a line!

The NQR 11 staff is also planning on making some changes in the tournament system, but who are we to spoil surprises when christmas is merely two weeks away. Fasten your seat belts, ladies and gents, because the most traditional and prestigious league is no longer around the corner, but straight ahead.

Further announcements concerning NQR 11 will follow. If you have any suggestions or criticism, feel free to comment below.

Hope you'll get some good commentators, they'll surely add some extra intensity to the war.

you are becoming a swede because of too much quakeworlding. soon it'll be "loose" instead of lose, "hes" instead of his and "men fjylle hjördis" instead of drat
