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!

foolish curiosity.

What can I say, after joining team ipx I learned that many of our
members are linux users, so having never seen or used linux myself
I became quite curious as to why people would choose linux over
a windows client. Well one week, three distributions and a non stop
riot of a headache I still don’t understand why people choose to
use linux over a windows client.
However I would like to whole heartedly thank ltmon for spending
most of this evening trying to help me get Quake Wars working on
my Fedora distro.
After my net connection died and I couldn’t ask Ltmon for more
help I gave up on Fedora and re installed Sabayon, I figured that
if I couldn’t play games on linux I would at least install something
that looks hot, and I could slowly learn to use, Sabayon being
built from the Gentoo architecture. (and still play as my second
sata drive has a minimal version of windows installed on it).
Well thirty minutes later I had a smashing new version of linux
installed and once again my curiosity got the better of me, “hey
why not give Quake Wars a go with this distro?”. As soon as the
installation was complete I had the terminal up and ready to watch
the log fill with endless errors and such. It started without a
problem, after going through hell trying to get it to work on the
other one! But not only did it work it was awesome, truly awesome!
The loading times were great, the sound crystal clear and the
graphics totally seemless. The game runs %100 better on Sabayon
than it ever did on windows.

Well there’s my two cents. Res

Sha8ds Pissed... So it's time for a rant

After having probably the worst experience of MORONS on a game of ET:QW. Ive decided to write a letter to ID or whoever made the game…
why?
well to screw off this Friends dealie and replace it with a “Moron Numptys” dealie

that way i can filter out all the servers with TKing morons, and morons that only go as snipers when the map calls for engies (could you believe that the server was full and NOT 1 person was building the bridge? except me, and NO one was supporting me either)
so anyway… id rather use the dealie to know where the MORONS are so i can stay away!

ill also put in the letter, WTF is the deal with the water? so much and so useless… and I want to THROW my knife MORONS

anyone else got the sheets?

ET:QW Practice

Evening all,

ET:QW’s been out for a few weeks now, the Linux version sounds like its getting close.

How’s a disorganised practice match sound – we all converge on one of the empty servers on node – and wait for everyone flock in to take us on much like the good old days on the customs server for ET:W.

All new honoraries (soon to be announced) welcome of course.

Who’s up for it?
