Quake 2 Competition Results

The Quake 2 competition ran smoothly, with the exception of when I accidentally paused the server in the first game, although it didn't seem to effect anyone that much (i hope). The first game was run as a free for all with the top 8 going through to the 1 on 1 knock-out rounds. Prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd & 3rd, plus they all received certificates.

The final results were Sam (Fireslide) dominated the final over Sam (samoo) while it was a close game between Sam & Sam (spex) for 3rd place with Sam coming out on top in the end, confused? Well everyone who made the final 4 was named Sam... anyway the results of each round are below.

Finals: q2dm1

Jan WonderLAN: Quake 2 - 1 on 1

Here is the basic run-down of the Quake 2: 1 on 1 Competition I'll be holding at WonderLAN on the 22nd of January 2005.

  • To sign up you will need to have Quake 2 installed and patched to version 3.20
  • Sign ups will be at the LAN and opened after an announcement over the mic. Note that the comp has only a limited number of spots
  • It will be a knock out comp with each round consisting of 2-3 short games with the winner moving onto the next round
  • The maps will be chosen from the standard Quake 2 DM map list (Q2DM1, Q2DM2, etc...)
  • Start time will be worked at the LAN
  • First place will receive a prize of 3 games (from the list below) and a certificate, Second place will receive 2 games and a certificate and Third place will receive a game and a certificate. Jolt might also be given away but cannot be confirmed.
  • The prize list is as follows: Deus Ex, Morrowind: Elder Scrolls III, Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield, Thief II: The Metal Age, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon & Worms World Party. The players will get to pick which games they want with first place getting first pick (note that third place will get whatever 1st and 2nd didn't take).

If you would like to discuss the competition or give feedback then please do so here. Hope to see you all on the day :-)
