Netherlands Terifire & The CPMA Community will be hosting a duel kenya cup this July 8, 2017 starting at 08:00 CDT. This will be an open event, and players from all regions are welcome to play with the caveat that players will mostly be playing on Europe European and CanadaMexicoUnited States of America North American servers. The event will be streamed by nekon on his channel on twitch nekonTV.

Register: Players must join the CPMA Discord Server & challonge sign-up via challonge. You'll find all the rules on the challonge page as well. For players who are unfamiliar with this format a kenya cup is a tournament which uses non-standard maps. However the tournament format will be quite familiar with most players, as we will be employing a double elimination bracket, with a BO3 upper bracket, and a BO1 lower bracket.

This event we will be using six new maps and the map pool is: calendar and Fata Morgana by Netherlands Terifire, dojo-b5 by United States of America Scorch, fjo3tourney6-b3 by Norway Fjoggs, Quickfire by United States of America greed, and Trespass by United States of America Pat Howard. You can download the map pack here. All these maps, with the exception of Trespass, are being developed by their respect mapper and constructive feedback would be appreciated. It also provides the potential for newer players a chance to show their skills and maybe surprise veterans that have been grinding cpm22 for decades.

6/27 Quake Champíons Patch update (63 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 03:17 CDT, 27 June 2017 - iMsg
Following some minor patches in the previous weeks, the 6/27 Quake Champions Patch introduces new Duel mode dynamic (best of 5 instead of best of 3), Clutch champion improvements, rocket delay fix, HMG nerfing, and new spectator features for better streaming experience. Check out the full Patchlog below:
"Tomorrow (June 27) at 6am ET, we'll be conducting maintenance to deploy our latest patch. With this patch, we are expecting a longer than average server downtime, with an estimated reopen time of around 2pm ET. We'll keep you posted as soon as the servers are back up. Below are the full patch notes. One note in particular that we'd like to address is a fix we're implementing to greatly reduce latency in firing rocket/nail projectiles. To help illustrate the changes, we've included an image to show latency between Quake Live, CBT 11 (pre-6/27 patch), and CBT 12 (the 6/27 patch). We look forward to hearing your thoughts after the patch goes live with this change.

As always, we look forward to hearing your feedback once these changes go live. Thank you, all!"

Cypher interviewed about Quake Champions (102 comments)
Posted by Asuka_ @ 20:35 CDT, 24 June 2017 - iMsg
"In 2006, aged only 16, Belarus Alexey "Cypher" Yanushevsky was signed by Fnatic. By that point, he was already one of the strongest Quake players out there — both the third and fourth instalment. Cypher continued to make a living playing quake until 2014. According to him, it was only in 2011, when the first International was announced, that Quake’s lagging behind other esports disciplines began to be felt.

Cypher spent the last year and a half playing Overwatch, but switched to Quake Champions when its beta was announced — and went on to win its very first online tournament. talked to Yanushevsky about his career in Overwatch, the Quake Champions meta, and the esports prospects of this new game."


Is it fair to say Quake Champions has become too much of an arcade game?

Belarus Cypher: It became simpler by an order of magnitude. This is a game in which you can’t heal yourself back to full, the way you could in previous Quake instalments; you can’t stack up and just circle the map killing everyone. That’s why the game used to be one-sided; there would be the one guy who was killing everyone and having fun.

Here, it’s built a bit differently. You’ve got abilities you can use in a mass fight, and besides, a hero has a health cap that can’t be exceeded. No matter how many megahealths and armors you pick up, if you get hit from a railgun, the second hit will kill you, unless you’re some super-fat tank. And if you are a super-fat tank, you’re very easy to hit.

They’ve balanced the game with newcomers in mind. In Quake III, you respawn with a machine gun, 125 HP, and zero armor, and until you pick up a good gun and a more or less decent armor suit, you won’t be fragging anyone. Here, you can take down someone who’s full-HP with just that machine gun. You can’t be chased around spawn points. The abilities, the invisibility, the orbs, the teleports, it’s all about doing everything to prevent top-tier players from owning noobs, to stop noobs having 0/45 runs.

All non-NA/EU players removed from Qualifiers (126 comments)
Posted by dirtbox @ 08:04 CDT, 16 June 2017 - iMsg
From ESL Discord:
Hello @everyone ! We would like to let you know that the NA qualifiers are meant only for NA & CA based players and the EU qualifiers are meant only for the EU based countries. This means that for these qualifiers, we won't be able to accept players (or teams with players) from Asia/Africa/Australia/Latin America. We have already removed those that were from the mentioned regions from the qualifiers and we hope that you will help us spread this message so it reaches them and the other players from these regions that were planning to participate. Many thanks and happy fraggin'!

Yet on the Bethesda page it says people can play with High Ping from other regions.

NOTE: All Qualifiers will be played on NA or EU servers. However, other regions can participate in these Qualifiers with higher latency. NA includes the Americas and Australia, and EU Europe, Russia and Asia.
Update 2017-06-19 by Åke Vader: Apparently this has been resolved. According to some obscure Discord quote Africans and Asians will now be allowed to play in the European region, while Australians and Latin Americans are allowed to play in the North American region.

While everyone is excited about the new addition to our favourite game series, I'm still keen on Quake Live, and its not because I don't like Quake Champions. In fact, I can't even launch Quake Champions because my PC is older than me. Check out my new video and thanks for watching.
