No clue how it is or plays as everywhere around town is out. Boy genius here with the amazing scoop that if you want to grab that "hot off the presses" game you need to pre-order. I do hear tho that it is a system hog from hell...
Lagwagon has written a little post on the cpl message board praising CTF. Gamers' Gauntlet is mentioned as well! Lagwagon reported the last G2 event for eSports America. Give it a quick read:
Smeg passed along this link to a site that shows what "Ugly rooms for the Beautiful people" really means...
XEN OGL match.
Our last OGL match on the old OGL system went off without much of a hitch. Played on Q3wctf1 for a grueling 30 minutes. Went up 2-0 only to almost have it tied up right at the end with XEN doing a 4 man rush to try and recover the flag before time ran out. In the end we won 2-1. Here's the SS < Game 1 >
Wednesday's OGL match.
We played and beat Mhz Wednesday night for one of our last OGL matches on the old OGL system. Megahertz had some problems with 2 of their guys in NY with their CM's going down because of a storm up there but was able to field a team without having to reschedule. The highlight of the match was this shot here:
SLAYER OWNS YOU!
Not really...but hey!
mojozilla and g2.
The radio show went well last night. Talked about G2, CPL and some other tasty topics. The cast and crew was Kurrelgyre, smeg, time2die, Louziffer, Stone, and Bad Mojo. Check out the archive of the show here:
Gamers' Gauntlet II Announced!
Stupid Hosts files trick.
Want to connect to the Depleted Uranium server ultra fast but typing the ip (or jargirl.digitaljedi.com :) got ya down? WELL...find your hosts file (not the hosts.sam for some of you win9x users) and add the following line:
There's a monthly (I believe...maybe bi-monthly) LAN located in Atlanta. Check them out here: http://www.reservoirdogs.net
People that get in arms about the CPL moving on to Counter Strike as their main tourney have to ask themselves the one question...when were they ever a contender for any of that cash and fame? The idea behind CPL is great but it was/is being executed poorly and selfishly. Anyone that has attended recent CPL events will tell you that it's not about the gamers' ...it's about the $$$. For some the decision greatly effects their decision to compete competitively...but for the other 99% of Quake3 players it's just another tourney/competition to bite the dust whose only positive was media attention and $$$. No one event or organization makes or breaks a community. As for CPL departing...how can you miss something you never had?
Quake3 is ALIVE!
Lately it has been become in style to announce that Quake3 is dead...mostly because nothing else is happening on the TDM scene, which dominates most of the Quake3 media attention. It seems that Media sensationalism and hype has reached the web as it has failed to ask the CTF community if Quake3 is dying or not. Even tho we suffer some of the "boredom" problems the TDM community has run into we have a huge impending map pak's and a Threewave map pak not too far off that will keep us alive and kicking and keep things exciting.
HUGE LAN PARTY.
Looks like a huge 1250 (yes twelve hundred and fifty) person LAN in DC is planned for Memorial Weekend (June 29th-31st). We'll see what this turns into as the tournaments listed are:
N8_Dawg is doing good and is recovering at home. He can get up, out and about but still is without access to a computer and car (because of pain medication) but is in high sprits.
The "East3" and "Kentucy Fried Chicken CTF" (KFC) server ports have been setup in DNS...yes I'm lazy hehe. So if you connect to kfc.killersinc.com:27965 (or 27000) and/or east3.killersinc.com:27000 (or 27965) will work. Why not use default ports? Because we don't want the local Quake3 players to join the server which is local to them with their l33t 3ms pings. Also the OSP and configs have been updated to 0.99s2. You can gain admin/ref status when you have 2 or more people in the game and issue the following statement:
Looks like the scales have been tipped back towards a gaming community site...away from what was turning into ShackCS. Looks like one of the 519 guys is posting come Quake3 related posts...that are actually interested and not just mirrored news posts from the other news sites. If I want to read Bluesnews or Shugashack news...I'll go to the source.
Word on Drivers.
I Wouldn't recommend to anyone downloading "beta" or "pre-release" video card drivers unless they are from nvidia or 3D Chipset. Be warned that any website can claim to have new drivers that are fake driver packages which can mess your pc up with bogus registry settings.
In the "good news" dept., PC133 RAM is incredibly cheap. Check out this link for Cosair RAM: Click here 40$! OMG!!!
I have fixed the members section to reflect what's left of KI. If you're interested in joining KI, you can msg me for more details.
As some of you might know and others are about to find out, N8_dawg was in a serious car accident last Thursday. After spending 2-3 days at Duke Hospital N8 went home Sunday recoup. N8 is expected to make a full recovery.
Updated the schedule above as it was broken from the webserver move. Also added Satsu and Dirtysanchez to the pictures.
Updated the links on the right. I knew that q3ctf.org had gone away...but what the hell is in it's place? Added .Game Wallpapers to "cool stuff". Bascially checked and re-org'd some of the links on the right and added/deleted some stuff.
Got an impressive 240KBs off of my rr.com CM while downloading a linux iso image...IMPRESSIVE. A new RA3 is coming out later this week with some of the new "OSP" code...where's the MP3 player for OSP!!! My sonique lags me in high FPS battles...suxz0rs. Nothing much else earth shattering. I do think that ShackES should be renamed to ShackCS hehe...
Mindsweeper Strategy Guide.
For those mastering more than one game I have found a nice strategy guide for Mindsweeper:
