Lokken, March, 28 | 0
commentsExtremeTech published an article last Thursday detailing information about Valve Software's new stream technology. The article isn't overly technical and provides a good analysis of both what the technology entails and how it can impact the gaming market in the future. What seems to have started as a way to prevent cheating in its popular online games may eventually turn into more profits for Valve. Steam technology is being impliment in the upcoming 1.4 patch for Counter-Strike. More information is available here.

Traditionally Monday is not the big match day and today was not any different.
One game was played in Eurocup 5 where iCE cLIMBERS took on clan dunno. IC managed to win rather trouble free despite the even fragscore, their victory win was never in jeopardy.
OSPDM6 107 to 91 IC
CPM4 144 to 103 IC
nEo - nV
Everything returned to normal in CB CTF after the shocking news that was announced earlier today regarding a player, 32nd, fakenicking during an official game. The player was later banned from Clanbase.
Tomorrow sees QPO playing CA and Vikings playing VSE in the Eurocup.

SK disqualified from PGCL News itemwritten by
Yodaz, March, 25 | 0
On a rather long post on the SK website the whole team of SK Q3 explained how disgusted they were about PGCL disqualifying them from the ongoing PGCL tournament. Basically it invovled mTw making sure that Stelam was not playing the PGCL game against them (since you have to be 18 to play in Germany). Since the guy that mTw sent out to check could not enter the building because of security reasons the admins from PGCL decided to disqualify SK. Read the whole post here. It seemed kind of weird to me that mTw would even send a person to check up on the matter.
Eurocup Friday News itemwritten by
Yodaz, March, 22 | 0
I was putting my money on shuuk on Cbooky, because I really thought that they would pull themselves together for the first time this season against murk. Seeing on GTV that shuuk probably pinged 35 and murk 60, I was sure that my bet would hold up.
The started out on murk’s map the Icelandic made OSPDM6. All their betatesting on this map has really paid of in this year’s Eurocup 5. Added that shuuk does not look like knowing what to do on this map, gave murk a rather easy victory 116 to 83.
shuuk’s DM14 was up next. Throughout the whole game shuuk’s PU just seemed to die very fast without doing damage while murk’s PU runner usually received 5-6 kills. Shuuk looks far from the team that beat SK on DM14 in last season and made it to the playoffs. Not sure what have happened to the team but murk won the map 113 to 57, again rather easy.
Yet again an impressive victory for murk with a big ping disadvantage. They have quickly become most people’s favourite team to route for, as they keep amazing everyone, that they are able to play like that with that ping.
Played a half an hour later was aRCa against p1mps. First map up was aRCa’s OSPDM5. p1mps got a really good start with 20-30 frags within minutes. aRCa was just playing catchup for the rest of the game winning a lot of frags with their nice Quadcontrol and loosing frags in between the Quads. Final score 112 to 84 p1mps.
On OSPDM6 p1mps seemed satisfied with settling with the Railgun and PG area and aRCa with controlling the RA area. In between Quad’s the fragging was pretty even, with p1mps getting some mad Quadruns and was leading with about 20-30 at the 16 mark when aRCa lost focus and let p1mps completely dominate the map and lost 115 to 74.
Tomorrow sees x4 playing mTw at 18 CET and iron against x4 at 23 CET in Eurocup 5.
Although the EuroCup provides you with several matches per day on average to follow live on GTV, that may not be enough for some of you. Cry no longer, for in a super exclusive deal that involves millions of dollars and euros, Clanbase has agreed to let the Resurrection 2 league use Clanbase's GTVs. In return those matches will be announced in the #eurocup topic for European night owls to enjoy. Resurrection 2 is the biggest American Q3TDM league with top clans like cK and 519 participating in it. Matches will typically start between 2am and 4am CET.
Also be sure to go to Cached and vote for the Resurrection 2 All-stars teams. The top two names in each category will populate them. The vote is open until next Sunday evening.
The All-Star game will be taking place Saturday, March 30th at 9pm est. and Clanbase will no doubt broadcast it via their GTV servers.

Inace you havent already heard, the previously announced CPL DoD tournament is in trouble, and could possible be canceled for a RtCW tournament. As you can see, the number of DoD clans is far from lacking, but very few have actually registered an entire team to the CPL tournament (5), with only 1 being considered a top tier team (^db^). Most clans out there, such as 101st, Cosa, and dwk have said they are waiting to register, but if the DoD community wants their game to remain a CPL ,000 tournament, delaying is not an option.
I myself personally enjoy playing RtCW over DoD, and see the RtCW community as a more orginized community. However, I would like to see the DoD tournament stand for many reasons. #1 I dont want to see the "professional" league (CPL) yet again cancel another official/confirmed tournament (dejavu quake), or come back on a statement yet again. #2 I think this could help boost the DoD community into some of the "eSport" spotlight, letting them shine with the top dogs like CS, Q3, and RtCW. #3 I think if the CPL decided to run a RtCW tournament with the QuakeCON one already scheduled 3 weeks later, that both tournaments would be effected pretty bad and be low quality, with maybe 102 teams attending both. So again, if you plan to attend the CPL, you need to register NOW, else you wont be attending at all (atleast for a DoD tournament). And hey, if the tournament does get canceled, you can always get a refund.
