Communication is important for the admins when running these comps, but we can't check up on everyone individually all of the time. If you don't let us know that something is wrong, we will assume the best. Keep us informed, especially if you can't contact an opponent. This really helps us keep these competitions running smoothly.

If anyone wants to help with streaming, casting or admining please send me (phy1um) a PM. I'm looking for some new casters this week, so don't hesitate to get in touch!

1.

Use this thread to find other new duelers who have low ELO and are looking to duels. There are many of these duelers out there, they just seem to have a hard time connecting with higher ELO players dominating the servers.

2.

Post the below information into the thread:

QuakeLive name:
City/State:
ELO:


3.

Add each other to QuakeLive friends and ask each other for duels regularly.

4.

Feel free to add myself (intro) and haymo to friends and we can spawn private servers for your duels.

5.

We have also been running low ELO cups for new duelers, so you guys get a chance at some decent competition. So keep an eye out for them on this site :)

Quote:

Today's update brings us a new announcer voice, several new in-game reward medals, new Play Now playlists including public standard servers for all game types, and a round of polish to address outstanding issues.

New Announcer Voice, along with New In-Game Reward Medals!

Combokill, damage with one weapon, and follow up with a rail kill.
Rampage, gib three opponents, each within 3s of eachother.
MidAir, kill an airborne enemy with a projectile.
Revenge, kill a player who has killed you 3 or more times since you last killed them.
First Frag, awarded to the player who earns the first frag of the match in FFA or Duel.


New Playlists

Players may now select Playlists from the Play Now menu that host multiple game modes. When playing on these servers, during the end-game map vote players will be able to vote to transition to a new game mode. All playlists are available for all players to join. Current playlist include:

Team Combat: Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Freeze Tag.
Clan Arena
Free For All
Capture the Flag
Variety Pack: Attack & Defend, Harvester, Instagib FFA, One Flag CTF, Red Rover, and Quad Hog FFA.
Duel


Code Updates:

Restored lightning gun knockback (while maintaining it's recent damage reduction).
No longer dropping Machinegun in Classic.
Damage Indicators now show the total shotgun damage dealt.
Added spectator support for Damage Indicators.
Enemy skulls now drop from fallen carriers in Harvester.
Obituary messages now queue, so that we don't lose death messages.
Obituary icons now fade out after displaying.
Item pickup icons now fade out after displaying.
All reward medal icons now fade out after being displayed.
Added Infected VO when you're turned!
Added Go! VO on Race countdown
Added Bite! VO on Infected countdown

Reward VO randomizes between 3 variants for Impressive, Excellent, Humiliation, ComboKill, Rampage, MidAir, Revenge.
Fixed a bug with Holy Sh*t, it would trigger when dying near your empty flag stand.
Fixed Weapon Toggle when switch to empty is disabled.
The "Vote Yes / Vote No" callvote popup menu no longer appears during Intermission votes.

Restored the zombie speed 1.15x
Fixed quadHog POI shader.
Added Your Team Scores / Enemy Scores in place of Red/Blue unless you're spec.
Removed red/blue scores and rank change (lead taken / lead loss) from Attack & Defend, because these events only occur at the time of other VO playing (flag taken, round over, etc).
Updated preview shots on the callvote menu to match the new levelshots.
