The mainstream games in the fps community are crying for a new savior, the past years we have had Q3, CS and Painkiller as "the mainstream game" which have brought a lot of attention into the mainstream networks. But now there is a loop hole to fill in and a bunch of players and sponsors looking for something surprising.
What can be done for the sake of QW now that the E-sport world has no Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan or Pete Sampras?
Lets get to the bottom of this and point out a few stuff that can be beneficial for QW if we get into the e-sport mainstream network;
Today we get servers from various people within the community whom get nothing in return, why is that? What are the other games doing that we aren't?
The best way to get stuff for the community is through sponsors and to do so, get published in the e-sport world.
Druidz with bps, locktar, goblin, reppie among their player are doing this exact thing, showing QW to the e-sport network.
The benefits they(we) get from this are two things, 1, new servers
The e-sport org. of Druidz have heavy sponsors, such as Gigabyte, Whitetiger (energy drink), Game city (internet cafe) and ExcellentServers. Think about having those sponsors for qw.nu and the impact it can have on QW with for example more online servers. Im not quite sure about the position Druidz-gaming have in the esport world but think of the publicity a QW-clan can have within an esport org. such as SK (sk-gaming.com), mibr (made in brazil), MYM (meetYourMakers) or x3o (x3o-gaming.com).
The potential PR we could get from the main esport-sites (like gotfrag, esreality or sk-gaming) through out the world that could bring not only servers and money into qw but a hell lot of players.
With this Im not saying that lets make qw a mainstream game but just get it out there so we get more attention that we have right now! The only thing we have had the past years has been a few dreamhack tourneys (+ quakecon) that has brought QW abit in the esport communication streams.
There are a few missing holes here, I dont want the oldschool clans such as cMF, tVS and Slackers to get into the esport org. with their QW history and all!
But the uprising clans and the freelancing players such as the russian NO! and xantoms new mixclan could have potential of getting into am esport org..
When carmac joined SK and started advertising Q3, it became a big boom for the Q3-scene and we can do it as well imo since qw is A BETTER game than Q3
So where do we start? what do we do?
Its about the div0 players now, we cant do much more! Bps has shown them the way and I hope they can talk to bps if they need some help.
Wouldn't it be cool if NO! were fnatic? or f0m were SK? and the potential PR, Servers + players we could get? just think about it!!!
In nqr14 I want to see clans such as SK, MYM, cMF, tVS, Slackers and fnatic!
Please give this to me and the QW community! Koff, f0m and no!, listen to my words and take some action, for the love of QW
ps. sorry for the errors here, I dont have all day to correct it
