That says it all...

Meatbox is here!

It is with a sigh of relief and a smile on my face that I post this via my shiny new Meatbox. After months of planning, waiting and enquiry (or should that be inquiry) into the ridiculous ‘service’ provided by Startrack ‘Express’, I finally have the product I ordered and paid for a some time ago.

This wouldn’t have dragged out nearly as long as it has if it were not for the incompetence of their staff to:

a) Deliver the product ON TIME to the RIGHT ADDRESS,

b) Record personal details correctly, and

c) Only allow the people nominated on the consignment note to make adjustments to the order, not just anyone.

One 45 minute phone call had them telling me that my ‘package’ was in 5 different locations at once, had been redirected by two different unauthorised people (who didn’t even have the con #, FFS!), wasn’t delivered to the wrong place (even though they were adamant 3 minutes earlier that it was), nor the right place and was then signed off by someone I’ve never even heard of!


Anywho, legal squabbles aside, the Meatbox is here. And it rocks!

I am also happy to return to the ‘active’ gaming roster.

With the recent(ish) news of the GA Gaming Ladder, I say: GAME ON!

Can you tell I'm bored at work today?


A nice vid of the final of some ET:QW competition, somewhere. In any case, they’re pretty good.

ETQW Ladder at GA

I braved the eye-bleedingly bad discussion forums on GA for a few minutes today to see the latest on the ETQW comp. Currently there are pages missing, but our old friends RoK are out, and our older friends nes are in the final. I think it’s versus Sequential Gaming, who apparently beat RoK in a worthy game. It doesn’t seem as if there is a broadcast of the final being realised due to lack of ETQW-tv (although apparently this is coming) or whatever. Hopefully there will be at least a few demos to watch and learn somewhere.

In other news a ladder will be open for registration directly after the closing of the competition. This will be organised by GA directly (i.e. none of the stupid rules enforced by Activision or whoever it was) and will be similar in format to the W:ET ladder. 6v6, max of 3 maps in stopwatch. I’m pretty damn sure that substitutes between matches will be allowed.

Anyone think it’s worth risking sitting at the bottom of the ladder for a few good matches ;) In any case we could try it out for a season instead of our normal randomly organised scrim approach.


Fully half the posts in the competition thread had to be removed by admins. Seeing some of the dribble that was left alone in other threads I can only imagine how bad it got. And then the same people manage to complain about the “ETQW community being dead…”. DUH!

After much turmoil, stuff ups by startrack ‘express’ and dodgy delivery drivers that don’t know one suburb from the next, the Meatbox is here!

Shock loss: Team IPX taken to the cleaners by relative unknowns "RoK"

In a titanic battle, and underdone Team IPX found themselves outmatched by a fighting fit Regiments of Khaos in the GA ETQW tournament. The final score of 4 – 0 didn’t do justice to the blood, sweat and tears poured into the struggle by IPX members against all the odds. After the victory, RoK is favourite for taking the grand final against a competition that just doesn’t exhude the same class. Read on after the break for more…

Reminder: GA Tournament Round 2 - TONIGHT!

I’m not the type to send out reminders – and this will probably be the last one (I like to say something once, and then expect people to remember it however they need to)

But tonight is too important – so a one off reminder – be there tonight!

Specifically – Chipper, Deviance, Fuzz, Hashy, Ltmon, n0mad, Resident Evil & ex-member Sha8doW

7:30 AEDST in vent. Details here
