ET:QW GA Comp: Team IPX storms into the second round unopposed!

Team IPX storms into the second round of the GameArena Comp… due to a bye.

Outstanding work all. Let’s take this commitment into the second round against “Regiments of Chaos”

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Tournament at GameArena

For those who haven’t seen in the forums, GameArena is running an Enemy Territory: Quake Wars competition and calling for registration now.

Team IPX will be entering a team :) Although we don’t expect to be in the hunt for the grand prize of $10,000 it will be a good opportunity to make the most of a great game we’ve all pretty much paid for and to show off our awesome hockey skills.

The format of the tournament is 8v8, playing best-of-3 stopwatch rounds. It will be a knockout/elimination contest, with a full schedule to be determined once registrations are complete. Full details are available at http://www.gamearena.com.au/competitions/etqw/

If you haven’t already registered with GA, do so NOW and join Team IPX for this tournament. Even though it is 8v8, substitutes are allowed between rounds and between matches, so there’s no excuse for not registering. Having a few more than 8 will allow us to keep playing even if Real Life ™ rears it’s ugly head for some, and some of us more noob players are more than happy to share our spot in the team if we have more available.

Shad is our official team captain for the tournament, and will be handling the administrative details, contact with GA etc. etc.

Note: As of 2 minutes ago we now have the requisite 8 players registered and are qualified to enter. But as I said, keep ‘em coming!

Fuzz, Founding Member of Team IPX, said “Without them both, teamipx.net would not have been possible” “They have gelled well with the Team IPX environment and there gaming skills are fantastic” said, Founding Member, Sha8doW

“It Validates my life” said Ltmon in his acceptance speech

“It great to feel Appreciated” said Chipper to the cameras on his way back to the Team IPX vehicle.

TeamIPX.net goes live!

After months of planning, late nights, lots of $ and a nasty Jamaican, Team IPX has finally moved from Wetpaint to its very own hosted website, teamipx.net

It was a team effort, but special mention must go to Fuzz for his diligence in getting a pack of lazy sobs into action.

The new site has lots more to offer ontop of the old site including:

  • Blogs, so you can hear and comment on all the rants that we offer.
  • Forums , so we can have great discussion.
  • RSS feeds to keep up with the latest content the easy way. Click below and subscribe to some of our feeds in your favorite newsreader / aggregator:
  • Earn Svalbards for contributing to the site
  • Constantly updating news from Svalbard.
  • Team IPX has its own IRC Channel on Gamesurge.
  • Traditional Hockey, Gaming, Treks and IPX related paraphernalia.
  • and, of course, the new site will continue with all the Svalbardian comedy that you have all grown to love!

The new site is running on Drupal, and over the coming weeks and months will be further refined, so if you have any ideas or comments let us know.
